Actress and filmmaker Kristine Gerolaga is sick of the way periods are portrayed in the media, so she set out to make a film of her own that challenges stereotypes and shows us just how unique periods can be. Gerolaga has written and will star in what is currently called ”The Untitled Short Film About What It’s Like to Be On Your Period,” and backers for the project on IndieGoGo will get to contribute ideas for a new title. The short film will star two female leads (when do we ever get to see that happen?) and aims to personify “that time of the month.” To offer support, visit the project’s IndieGogo page!
Emma Stone has met a lot of celebrity royalty in her lifetime. You’d think that someone who’s rubbed elbows with so many A-listers would never get starstruck, but it turns out Emma has an inner fangirl … for the Spice Girls. I guess it makes sense — the Spice Girls were huge back when Emma was in middle school and high school. The Girls are still spicing up her life, though, because during an interview with an Australian radio station, they played a message that Mel B, AKA Scary Spice, recorded just for her. Emma, adorably, started to cry. You can take a girl out of the ’90s, but you can’t take the ’90s out of the girl! [Vogue UK]
I’m a pretty big fan of YouTube hair and beauty tutorials. Without them, my sock bun and liquid eyeliner game would be terrible rather than “eh, I guess it’s good enough to leave the house like this.” But I think I love this YouTube beauty tutorial, from the hilarious and relatable and cool Akilah Hughes (of First Black Girlfriend fame), the very most. Because seriously, “Your face may probably never look like this, no matter how many of these products you use” really is the damn truth. [YouTube]
There’s no easier way to make the person you’re bedding feel awesome like a well-timed, sincere, creative, thoughtful compliment. Guys and gals, WE DO NOT DO THIS ENOUGH. Not only does complimenting someone in the sack make them feel good, but it can also communicate specifics about your desires, break down barriers and open a dialogue for future freakiness. In this episode of Funny Girl Sex Guide, I review just some of compliments you should consider giving during future fuck sessions.

I know, I know, you’re probably tiring of all the various takes on Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love,” from emojis to Katy B to Kanye’s remix, but I swear, this one is worth it. Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox, who have become known for expertly covering pop hits in the style of other music genres — Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” as a kinda gothic R&B jam is another recent cover — have taken the Beyonce and Jay Z collab and given it a 1940s, Big Band-style twist. Vocalist Cristina Gatti is seriously incredible. I have a feeling Bey herself would approve. [YouTube]
Janice Chan, a Brooklyn lawyer-turned-entrepreneur (read: badass) is tired of the judgment women sometimes receive for carrying condoms. She also didn’t like storing her condoms in fancy business card cases or makeup bags when going out, but the only condom cases she found on the market were geared toward men. Now she’s created a company called The Plan A Project that creates beautiful condom cases for women, which are small enough to fit inside even the tiniest clutch.(We know, because she sent us a couple samples!)
