The Five Essentials Featuring Emmy Rossum

With a powerhouse voice and real acting chops, Emmy Rossum is a rare breed of double-threat. Have you watched Shameless yet? It’s my new guilty pleasure: the Gallaghers are the family you love to hate but can’t help but love.

Stock-Up On Value Sets

Elizabeth Arden is one of those good old brands that I can count on to deliver without breaking the bank. Sure they might not be the newest or coolest and their packaging isn’t anything out of this world, but I’ve never come across one of their products (and I’ve tried dozens at this point) that […]

If you’re not watching Homeland, odds are someone has already chastised you for it, and I’ll second them! Honestly, once you start, you can’t stop. Just ask the president – it’s his favorite show. Claire Danes has already won tons of awards for playing bipolar CIA officer Carrie Mathison on the Showtime thriller. Intrigued yet? […]
