We may be biased in believing that growing up in the 90s was the best. After all, every generation seems to have a little nostalgic pride when thinking about their own version of “the good old days”. That being said, we wouldn’t trade our pre-iPhone childhood for anything, and we’re still amused looking back on the things that occupied our time and energy growing up. If you were a fellow stirrup leggings and Starter jacket girl of the 90s, then chances are, you too had these laughable arguments with your best friend. Continue reading

2017 has been a trip and that’s putting it mildly. Natural disasters, domestic terrorism, criminal investigations of people ranging from Hollywood moguls to the President himself – what hasn’t this year thrown our way that wasn’t the absolute worst?
A: The return of Will & Grace.
When I heard whispers about one of my favorite shows on the planet coming back to television, I wasn’t ready. We were in the throes of the most ridiculous presidential campaigns in recent American history, so it’s safe to say that my mind was elsewhere. Then the mini-episode dropped and my heart warmed for the first time in months. The nostalgia was needed and appreciated during that wacky election season. Now that we are just ten months into 45’s administration of errors, the one thing I look forward to every week is escaping into the world of Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen. It’s a tiny blip of superficial happiness, but it means so much. Continue reading

I have no shame in admitting my love for Full House. And I don’t just mean that I enjoyed watching it as a kid. I’m as happy to hang out with the Tanneritos today as I was 20 years ago. Like any true fan, I’ve also seen every episode of Fuller House and may or may not be cueing up Netflix for the Season 3 premiere tomorrow.
We’re now late enough into the game that I’ve come to accept that Michelle probably won’t be making any Fuller House appearances, yet her legacy surely lives on.
Allow these 10 gifs to remind us of the fact that Munchkin really is all of us: Continue reading
And just like that, summer is over. Okay, technically it’s not quite over yet. But we are beginning to dust off our fall decor and we’d be committing a lie of omission if we failed to admit that we’ve already started stocking up on pumpkin spice everything – ’tis the season! Before guzzling down our inaugural PSLs of 2017, filling our bellies and Instagram feed with apple cider doughnut holes, and tossing on our beloved flannel tops, we figured we’d soak in the last bit of summer by sharing our current favorites.
Here’s a quick look at some of the things we’re all about lately: Continue reading
Sansa Stark is arguably one of the most divisive characters on Game of Thrones. She’s been known to repulse viewers with her naïve and immature tendencies, and she’s the character fans tend to like the least.
On the other hand, supporters of Sansa claim that she’s slowly emerging as a feminist leader and is carving out a new definition for what it means to be a strong woman in a world dominated and ruled by men. Continue reading
I am 100% what present-day society would refer to as a “binge watcher.” I have been known to watch full seasons of TV shows in one day, or one weekend if the season is particularly long. And while my binge watching isn’t limited to Netflix, most of it occurs there. The streaming service not only has some of my favorite older TV shows to binge, but also new, original programs that have been wonderful: Marvel’s Jessica Jones, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Stranger Things and Master of None, to name a few (because trust that I could go on).
But I kind of feel like Netflix is totally killing me.
You may be thinking, “Well, binge watching definitely contributes to a sedentary lifestyle, but it’s probably illegal to say Netflix itself is killing you.” And you’d be right. But that’s not where I’m going with this. Continue reading

I just turned 38 a few days ago.
That’s an odd way to start off this post but it’s significant. Stay with me on this.
According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, I was born just in time to qualify to be a member of Generation X. I grew up in the Eighties and can remember a few epic moments of pop culture from my childhood. Continue reading
