Calling all current, former, and wanna-be ballerinas: if you haven’t caught the new dance drama that is Bunheads, you are seriously missing out. It’s got all the makings of a romance-cum-comedy-cum-drama, but with ballet… and a wise-cracking, shot-taking, plié-ing leading lady played by newcomer Sutton Foster. Dance shows and movies can be tricky, given the difficulty of finding someone who can both pas de bourrée and play a complicated character convincingly. But, with her Broadway background, Sutton has the dancing and acting chops for both — all the while rocking a cool California-girl look and, of course, making us laugh.
Sutton, we’re hooked.
We quickly found out: a poised starlet who can hold her own in films both artsy (Tree of Life) and mass-market (The Help) – and whose versatile, romantic style literally makes us weak in the knees. All that together make her oh-so crush worthy.
Who’s your girl crush?
With famous pops Eric and ultra-famous aunt Julia, some might say that Emma Roberts was born to be a Hollywood star. Maybe, but one thing we know for sure is that this girl has talent, poise and style. Sweet faced and wholesome, she seems like the type of girl we’d be friends with, she also possesses a subtle yet playful fashion sense and some serious acting chops, making her our girl crush of the day.
The new show Girls has caught the fascination of men and women of all ages since it premiered this spring. This blogger, personally, is a fan – I love the realness of the girls’ relationships, both with their male counterparts and each other.
One of the best parts of watching the show has been discovering up-and-comer Allison Williams. Yes, she’s the daughter of newsman Brian Williams, but she’s turning out to be a star in her own right. She’s a multi-talented actress (did you see her hilarious turn as Kate Middleton on Funny or Die?) – and she’s got killer style.
Whether in a stunning hot pink gown or an amazing pair of sparkly trousers, Williams has consistently wow’ed us so far. (That amazing head of hair doesn’t hurt.) We’re looking forward to seeing what she does next!
We’re not going to lie: when we were growing up, we drew most of our fashion inspiration from a mischief-making pair of girls who went by the singular title of “Mary-Kate and Ashley.” Even now, we still find ourselves seeking out the latest photo shoots and interviews of the stylish duo to find out what we should be wearing. So, when younger sister Elizabeth appeared on the Hollywood scene last year, we thought, “Poor girl! Who could stand out from the long shadow of MK&A?”
We needn’t have worried. Little Lizzie has proven to be a full-blown actress and style maven in her own right. With her ability to rock both vintage glam and hipster cool, she’s our new favorite girl crush.

Love her music or hate it, there’s no arguing that, in the short time she’s been on the scene, Lana Del Rey has made quite the splash. Since her web debut last summer, the girl has already performed on Saturday Night Live, appeared on the cover of Vogue UK, won multiple “best new artist” awards, and sparked a lot of conversations.
This blogger happens to find her songs equal parts sultry, sticky (try getting “Video Games” out of your head), and addictive. Del Rey’s stuff is like sugary cereal: there’s not much to it, but it tastes good. And her sartorial style’s refreshing, too: amidst a pop music scene dominated by the outlandishness of Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, the self-described “gangster Nancy Sinatra” stands out by looking bad-ass and polished at the same time. Del Rey’s style is a combination of old-school glamour (winged eye liner, lady-like dresses), major bombshell appeal, rock star edge (tats and gold rings) – and the occasional quirky sneaker thrown in for good measure.
This unapologetic mix of style, attitude and saccharine makes the up-and-coming songstress our girl crush of the day. Who’s your girl crush?
What does it add to your daily life?
I have a daily morning practice — each day feels new with yoga. Each pose has it’s benefits and challenges, just like each step in life.
What should a yoga newbie keep in mind when attending their first class?
Keep in mind: Go back to the mat. Whatever feelings come up, go back to the mat.
Side-leans. Hold one arm of the chair and raise your opposite arm, keeping it straight, then lean over the left and right side. Take three deep breaths on each side.
What does the phrase ‘well-being’ mean to you?
Well-being is a belief. You must believe in your own well-being otherwise you health is lacking. We have the power to choose our own thoughts, and to make them positive.

Chocolate! Every day!

With that in mind, we’ve mapped out this summer must-see movies week by week. That’s right, starting June 1st, you won’t have to scramble for a way to escape the humidity for the next three months.
