Say Farewell to Scandal, The Middle, New Girl and Mindy Project: Books to Remember Our Favorite Departing TV Shows

in Fiction by

It’s always bittersweet to say goodbye to our favorite TV shows, especially after spending years falling in love with the characters and their lives. And while we hate to see one get canceled (#StillBitterAboutDeadwood), it’s also not easy to watch a beloved show come to an end by choice. At least they get to do it on their own terms though, giving us all a sense of much needed closure. This year we have to bid farewell to some great ones. These shows have been with us season after season, introducing us to quirky heroines, offbeat families, and kickass powerhouses. We’re definitely sad to see them go, and we’re already searching for a way to fill the void. For us…

Be a gladiator (or at least dress like SCANDAL’s Olivia Pope)

in Potpourri by

I’ve decided to invent a new season. It’s called sprinter—that awkward time of year when you’re praying winter will end and spring seems like a mythical promised land that is forever out of reach. This year, sprinter is brutal and it is lasting forever. Not only is sprinter filled with surprise snowstorms and temperatures stuck at 20 degrees, but it might also be the worst time of year for fashion. All I want to do is burn my wool tights and outerwear, and yet I’m stuck wearing them for the foreseeable future. I long for floral prints and sandals. In the meantime, I’m looking to my fashion icon Olivia Pope from ABC’s Scandal for some outerwear inspiration. If I have to…
