Thanks, I Made It Myself: 8 DIY Projects For Grown-Up Flower Girls

I am an unapologetic flower freak. I spend an exorbitant amount of money on bouquets year-round, post pictures of them on Instagram with captions like, “Spring blooms <3″ (I know I’m the worst), and would decorate my house in a floor-to-ceiling floral motif in a hot minute if my boyfriend would let me. For now, I’ll just pack it full of pretty floral DIY projects and hope he doesn’t say anything. If you’re a fellow flower child, click through for 8 awesome craft ideas that are right up your alley…

Big Screen Breakout Roles: 17 A-Listers & The Movies That Put Them On The Map

Before stars were stars, they had to climb the Hollywood ladder just like everybody else. They starred in small television guest spots and low-budget films to kickstart their careers, but achieved an entirely new level of success once they proved they could cut it in film, too. Jennifer Aniston will always be Rachel Green from “Friends,” and Ryan Gosling just a kid on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” but they went from actors to movie stars once they brought in big bucks at the box office. Click through the gallery to see which flicks gave 17 stars their big breaks on the big screen.

Lupita Nyong’o Is Gorgeous On The Cover Of Vogue

Lupita's Best Looks
The best looks of "12 Years A Slave" star Lupita Nyong'o. Read More »

Gasp! The divinely talented, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of the July issue of Vogue! And, surprise, surprise, she looks stunnnnnnninnnnnnng. The interview with Hamish Bowles is also interesting, detailing Nyong’o's childhood in Nairobi, where her father is currently a senator in the Kenyan parliament; catching the acting bug as a youngster performing plays for her family; her pursuit of a higher education at Hampshire College and then Yale; and the audition process for Patsy, her Oscar-winning role in “12 Years A Slave.” I especially love how she described seeing the finished film for the first time:

“I was really nervous about seeing myself … because it had been such a profound experience in all ways. I remember it being one of the most joyful times in my life—and also one of the most sorrowful. I didn’t want my experience to be a vain one. But I will say that when I watched it, my heartstrings were pulled so tight for Solomon that I couldn’t go into the ego trip. I cried—I mean, I was inconsolable. I wept for an hour after the movie.”

My Top 5 Formative Geek Crushes

Literary Crushes
14 fictional people from books we are crushing on IRL. Read More »

The wonderful thing about a hefty amount of geek/nerd culture is that it is super-optimistic. John Green, author of A Fault In Our Stars, says that nerds are basically people who are “unironically enthusiastic … too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.” Which is awesome!

The first time I hung out with my now-boyfriend, I totally melted over the fact that he got really, really jazzed pantomiming a stack that extended from hip-height to chin-height to illustrate how many books you can get for ten dollars at library book sales. As a little geekling, I learned to love guys like this by the examples that cartoons, TV shows, video games, movies, and books made for me of enthusiastic, caring dudes. Without further ado, my top five formative geek crushes…
