in Fiction by

The Gilmore Girls revival is here!!! — and OMG I can barely contain myself. I can’t even remember the last time I was this excited about anything, ever. As a longtime fan of the show, it feels like my inner-teen girl is about to burst out of my skin, start singing that Carole King theme song, gorge on junk food and twirl in ridiculous circles. Called A Year in the Life, the Netflix reboot consists of four 90-minute episodes that follow our favorite mother and daughter team for each season of a year as they navigate their lives. It’s been nine years since we last saw the Gilmores and friends, and I can’t wait to see how all of their lives have…

5 New Opinions After Rewatching Gilmore Girls in My 30s

in Fiction by

I first watched Gilmore Girls when it premiered on The WB in 2000. I was 16-years-old. Rory and I happen to be born in the same year, only 6 months apart, and her journey became my journey: traversing high school and boys and colleges and deciding what we both wanted out of the future. I grew up with Gilmore Girls, and it will always be one of those defining television shows in my life. Despite its importance, I never rewatched an episode after the show ended in 2007. Stars Hollow was frozen in time for me, marking the end of high school and my college years. But when I heard that Netflix is bringing back Rory, Lorelai and the gang…

6 TV and Book Bad Boys That Make Us Feel So Good

in Fiction by

Ever since I first watched My So Called Life when I was only a preteen, I knew I was in trouble. Jordan Catalano kept leaning against things. In flannel. With those bangs flopping over his forehead and that brooding look in his eyes. It was official: I was hooked on bad boys. Years later, I still haven’t beaten my addiction. There’s just something about that boy from the wrong side of the tracks who didn’t have the best upbringing but still manages to have a soft side. A soft side that only comes out around his true love, naturally. Luckily for me (and all of you), there are tons of awesome television bad boys to drool over. Here are my…

in Potpourri by

Fall is the best time of year for fashion: chunky knits, leather jackets, ankle boots, and, of course, schoolgirl-inspired outfits. Even if it’s been years since your studying days, there’s just something about autumn that screams back-to-school—and all of a sudden we’re craving knee-high socks and plaid skirts. Luckily, there are plenty of television shows and movies to provide some examples of the best prep-uniform looks. So, inspired by our favorite schoolgirls on the screen, here are four scholarly outfits to wear this fall: Gossip Girl The ladies from Gossip Girl did schoolgirl uniforms right, with bright accessories, designer purses and enough attitude to pull off any look.

4 Fictional Cities We Wish Existed in the Real World

in Fiction by

Sometimes when we find ourselves so enveloped in a TV show or book, we often imagine what it would be like to be a resident of the fictional hometown or city. Not only do we want to live in the town, but we’d obviously want to check out the local hot spots and maybe meet up with one of the fictional characters we wish could be our BFF. Here are four cities/towns we’ve put on our imaginary travel bucket list and one we’d move to in a heartbeat (We’re looking at you, Stars Hollow!).

The 10 coolest TV moms ever

in Fiction by

When I was a kid, my mom often complained about the shows my sisters and I watched. “The mom is always dead!” she’d say. And she wasn’t wrong. From Full House to Punky Brewster, the mom never seemed to be in the picture when it came to television. But while mothers might have been missing from a lot of ‘80s and ‘90s sitcoms, it doesn’t mean they aren’t a part of our cultural landscape. So in honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday (and my own mom!), here are 10 of the coolest moms on TV: 1. Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls You can’t have a cool-mom list without including Lorelai; her relationship with her daughter Rory is envied by mothers everywhere.…

3 TV shows and a book: Small town charm and romance

in Romance by

Thanks to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, I can’t even remember the last time I watched a show when it actually aired. At this point, I’m addicted to the instant gratification of watching one episode after another while the hours tick by. Sure, sometimes you start to wonder if you should put real pants on, or if maybe that second pint of Ben & Jerry’s is actually a good idea, but there’s a real sense of accomplishment when you make it through an entire season of a show in one weekend. My favorite shows to binge are the ones you can put on in the background while you clean your apartment, or, uh, play a few hours of Candy Crush.…
