On Remembering the Early Days of Jezebel with Anna Holmes

LOL Vogue was one of my favorites - I used to read Jezebel specifically for the political info, making fun of magazines, and Pot Psychology. It was a great site to keep a tab open of on the computer at my first post-college job (when you're young enough to feel threatened by/inundated with pop culture conceptions of what's feminine).

@Pigwotflies Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz would be such a great couples Halloween costume. They're both so bizarre looking.

On The Importance of Gazing at the Day's First Light

"predawn exercises that consist of breathing, stretching, contemplating the things they’re grateful for and visualizing the day ahead" I think that's called yoga?

But really, this article is worth it for the ridiculous fashion-spread-y photo shoot. For real, she's sitting on the grass in a purple satin dress next to a pool with a horse looking on from the other side?
