From living in the moment to watching out for the party boy, here are some valuable dating lessons learned on Spring Break.
Our favorite glasses wearing, junk food loving, nerd-chic heroine has officially taken her bow. And after seven years of laughs, what better way to pay tribute to the comic 30 Rock series than to take a trip down Liz Lemon’s romantic memory lane. The show paved the way for some new funny girl’s like Zooey Dechanel’s quirky Jess and Mindy Kalling’s adorably disheveled Mindy. So in Tina Fey’s immortal words, “Ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party cause a Liz Lemon party is mandatory.”
Good news—my husband is home from his deployment in Afghanistan! Words can’t describe how incredible it feels to have Michael back. We recently celebrated a big milestone: Our first wedding anniversary. We spent this entire past year living thousands of miles apart from one another, so we encountered a few challenges that most couples will never have to face. We didn't get to talk on the phone as often as we would have liked, and I only saw a pixelated version of his face a handful of times.
I could gush all day about the 2012 film adaptation of Les Misérables. It's everything a movie musical should be. The film itself is like a love letter from the director (Tom Hooper) to the musical's original creators that says: 'Your work is perfection on stage. Let's do it justice on film.' And he succeeded.
I'm one half of the team behind the food blog, A Mouse Bouche, which I have been co-writing with my sister Megan ("The Mouse") since 2007. We are not food professionals, we are working artists who love to eat, love to cook, and love to talk about eating and cooking. Although we write about food and share recipes, we think of it more as a blog about life... through the important lens of snacking.
I loved "Mamma Mia!", the ABBA movie. I loved "Hairspray." So of course I also loved "Pitch Perfect," directed by Jason Moore: Watching a group of misfits perform everything from Ace of Base to Rihanna together is infectiously, vicariously fun. But aside from the singing (though the singing is so good!) this is a story of unexpected friendships and life-changing love.
Whatever you think of Cosmo — and chances are, you have a strong opinion one way or the other — we decided to ask our favorite women's lifestyle editors and our Twitter followers what lessons it has taught them over the years. With the recent death of legendary Cosmo editor Helen Gurley Brown, we thought it would be the perfect time to examine some of the love lessons (and wacky sex tips) the magazine has imparted on us.
YourTango recently caught up with the woman behind the online phenomenon Single Girl Problems, a blog dedicated to the trials and tribulations of single women around the world. Here, she sheds her nuggets of wisdom on love, sex, relationships ... and everything in-between. Be sure to catch her on Twitter @snglegrlprblms.
Sometimes we learn the most about relationships when we aren't even in one. If you're single, this is your time to be completely and fabulously selfish and determine what love really means to you. Instead of spending your days wondering why you're still single — and your nights on one bad date after another — here are the best things being single and dating can teach you about love.
The Internet is abuzz with grief over the loss of American filmmaker and feminist icon Nora Ephron. Here are five important lessons from Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron's rom com 'When Harry Met Sally.'
I have to admit that I'm an obsessive fan of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" franchise. Since 2003, I've watched too many crying breakdowns in limousines, steamy hot tub kisses and beautiful proposals that rarely become weddings. However, it wasn't until this season with beauty and single mom Emily Maynard that I began to realize "The Bachelorette" is more than just my Monday-night guilty pleasure.
If any of you saw "The Hunger Games" recently, you were in for a bloodbath — a very entertaining, very well-produced bloodbath. I'm a huge fan of Suzanne Collins, and the movie was one of the best I've seen in a long time. But while I cheered for Katniss, cursed the gamekeeper, and threw popcorn at President Snow, I couldn't help but notice that some of the lessons of "Hunger Games" could also be applied to relationships.
Whew. The Major League Baseball season is opening up today* and not a moment too soon, as the college basketball season came to a close a scant 36 hours ago and life would be awful if we just had the NBA and NHL to glance at over the rim of a pint glass.
