I know that picking on Blake Lively’s Preserve is pretty low-hanging fruit, just purely based on its lack of self-awareness and obvious attempts at recreating the eliteness of goop while also trying to be the All-American every girl and failing at all of this. This is why this week’s “Ladymags According to…” features someone who […]

F#!@ing Female Friendships, How Do They Work?

Like many of you, I’m pretty excited about Mindy Kaling’s new book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Last week I read an excerpt that included her “Best Friend Rights and Responsibilities,” all of which are very reasonable, I suppose, if you have that kind of relationship with someone.

Good morning, Persephoneers! Have we got a day in store for you.  Lots of words are coming your way, for those of you who are still snowed or iced in or those of you that are peeking from work. To get the blood flowing, I thought we might do something a little different for today’s […]
