Basically, we wanted a place for EVERYONE to feel welcome without a gender specific site name.

We want to make sure that our followers know that we appreciate YOU and still want you to have a place to come and unite. And maybe while you are there, you will look around and possibly discover something new! All of our past content will still be available to you on the new site. Basically all that is changing for you is our name!

We hope that you are excited to walk down this new road with us! To celebrate we will be hosting a couple awesome new launch giveaways in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

Are You Watching ‘Younger’?!


So this new TV show just started and holy crap am I in love! Are you watching ‘Younger‘? Because if you’re not I think you need to rethink your life choices.

Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 — with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.

I originally saw the trailer for this new show while I was cruising Hulu looking for things to watch (I started to watch an ep of ‘Party Down’ but the trailer for this played and I was like “bye Felicia”… and I never looked back). First what caught my attention was “from Darren Star, the creator of ‘Sex and the City'”, and then I stayed for Hilary Duff, I’m not going to even try and lie. Lizzie McGuire is my home girl and always will be. But in any case I’m glad I stayed because it’s all “YAAASSSS”!

But in all seriousness, watch this trailer and then if it tickles your fancy like it did mine, go seek out the first two episodes and then set your DVR to capture Tuesday night’s new ep. Side note: where has Sutton Foster been all my life?!

Despite what that trailer says, ‘Younger’ aired its back to back series premiere eps on March 31st on TV Land. You can find ‘Younger’ on Hulu, I’m sure you could catch it On Demand, watch it live on TV Land Tuesdays at 10/9c, or through the glorious magic of the internet you can watch it right on TV Land’s site! There is no escaping this show, and quite frankly why would you want to?

Once you’ve fallen in love, come back here and chat with me about it! Continue reading

WATCH: The Age of Adaline Clip ‘First Dates’


Another clip from the highly anticipated romance ‘The Age of Adaline‘ is here, and it’s just a cute as the first one. Not to mention, it makes me a little hungry…

Did you see our exclusive still of Blake Lively as Adaline? She is just gorgeous, and we CANNOT wait for this movie! Stay tuned for more Adaline related news, and mark you calendars because ‘The Age of Adaline‘ hits theaters nationwide on April 24th.

Exclusive Image of Blake Lively from ‘The Age of Adaline’


We are SO excited about the new movie ‘The Age of Adaline‘ with Blake Lively and we have an exclusive image from the film given to us from Lionsgate! I personally have been a fan of Blake since ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ and pretty much love anything that she is in. This movie is right up my alley. So much that I looked to see if there was a book that the movie was based off of (there isn’t😦 ).

After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.

Sounds pretty interesting/great am I right? And seriously how pretty is the name Adaline, I’m kind of obsessed with it now, I think I need to get a kitten and name her that.

Make sure you click HERE to watch the latest clip from the film! ‘The Age of Adaline’ opens in theaters nationwide on April 24th 2015!

The Ugly Love Movie is coming! Check out the teaser picture of Miles Archer here!

My favorite author of all time is Colleen Hoover. Seriously. If you guys haven’t read any of her books, GET ON THAT. One of her books,’ Ugly Love’ is being adapted into a movie. Admittedly, Ugly Love was not my absolute favorite “CoHo” book but I’m still mildly obsessed with it. Nick Bateman has been cast as the lead in the movie, Miles Archer, Airline Pilot and drop dead gorgeous man… with baggage. (BTW Make sure you are following Nick on Instagram, you can thank me later). We don’t know who else has been cast in the film yet. Specifically the main female role of Tate Collins! We need this news yesterday!  To hold you over however, here is a picture of Nick as Miles as posted by the official Ugly Love Movie Instagram! How excited are you for this? Click here to purchase the book and read it before the movie comes out 2/1/16!


When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.
