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.”

Succulents are low maintenance plants that provide owners the illusion of a green thumb. Unlike more temperamental plants, succulents simply need a few hours of sunlight and a bit of water.

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…

Hi/Lo: Flat Sandals For Summer

I’m sad. After years of depending on J. Crew’s Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just decidedly not the same. As a creature of habit, this is upsetting. Don’t fuck with my summer shoe game, J. Crew! I guess this means I’m in the market for a new summer sandal, but where to start? I know! With absurdly expensive designer pairs and their affordable alternatives!

OMG I Love Your Hair: 5 TV Actresses Who Flaunt Their Curls On And Off Screen

Where are all the curly haired women in Hollywood? I’m not talking about curls sculpted with hot rollers and curling irons — show me women with wild, natural curls. The kinds of curls real women have. I am one of those women, and I’m always disappointed to see straight hair dominating the the big and small screen, in magazines and on the red carpet. Especially when women with beautiful curly hair wear these straight hairstyles! If you do a quick search for celebs with curly hair, you’ll find tons of photos of Keri Russell, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift, but even these women wear their hair straight 50 percent of the time at least.

Luckily, lately, I have spotted a few lovely ladies who embrace their curly hair on and off screen and it makes me appreciate my curls even more. If you’ve got ‘em too, cancel your next blowout and join these women in flaunting your curls.
