Five Favorite Muppets Couples

The new Muppets movie comes out this weekend and I’m dying to see it. The strange combination of Ty Burrell (aka Phil Dunphy), Tina Fey and Miss Piggy is so intriguing to me. As I was thinking about Muppets: Most Wanted, I started thinking about all of the famous Muppets couples. Here are my favorites: Floyd Pepper and Janice. Bass player and lead electric guitar, respectively, of Electric Mayhem, they are the cool hippies I wish I could be. Photo courtesy of themuppetmindset.blogspot.com Bert and Ernie. I’m branching out into Sesame Street territory here, but they are such a good pair. And I loved the New Yorker cover that shows them cuddling watching the ruling for gay marriage on TV. [...]

Get Lucky Week: Lucky Songs

T.G.I.F. Today marks the kick-off of St. Patty’s Day weekend and I couldn’t be more excited! To get in the spirit, I put together this list of “Lucky” songs. Do you have any favorite songs about luck? Or any “getting lucky” songs ? 1. Get Lucky by Daft Punk This song is great for just about every weekend, but it’s absolutely perfect for this weekend. 2. Lucky by Britney Spears An early 2000s classic. Gotta love Britney at the height of her success. And that lip gloss. Wow. 3. Lucky Star by Madonna Madonna in all of her punk-glam glory. It’s a great song and an even better video. 4. Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat This is such [...]

5 Reasons Ken is the Worst Boyfriend

March 13 is National Ken Doll Day, so let’s take a magnifying glass to the world’s most famous plaything boyfriend. We’ve discovered some flaws in the model—here are five reasons why Ken is not the perfect boyfriend he’s packaged to be:   1. His Earring Magic Ken phase (or any phase that involves him going through your sacred accessory drawer—I’m looking at you, Jewel Secrets Ken). “Dammit, Ken, stop going through my closet—I already told you that shade of purple does nothing for your complexion!”   2. Remember that time he needed “space?” In 2004, just days before Valentine’s Day, Ken and Barbie split up.  The reason? They “felt it was time to spend some time apart.” Please—any good celebrity [...]

Get Lucky Week: Love Rituals

Everyone has their own weird love superstitions: a lucky pair of underwear, an amount of time they wait before calling someone back, a ritual they do in the mirror before they go out, but have any of you ever tried (or would try) these wacky (and sometimes gross) traditions? 1. Sleep with a piece of wedding cake (or a mirror–how these two vastly different objects will bring about the same result is unclear to me) and you will dream of the one you will marry. I’m imagining this would result less in dreams of Prince Charming and more in sugary icing in your hair and all over your sheets, but you never know. 2. Swallow whole the heart of a chicken [...]

5 Reasons Ken is the Perfect Boyfriend

Wednesday is National Ken Doll Day, so I thought, what better day to celebrate the world’s perfect boyfriend, Ken Carson (that’s Ken’s full name, in case you didn’t already know)? Here are the top five reasons why Ken is the perfect boyfriend:   1. He’s versatile. Ken is never stuck in a rut. He’s been a cowboy, a Harley Davidson rider, a military man, a doctor…the list goes on and on. It seems he’s got the best of all the worlds. With Ken as your boyfriend you can be sure things will never be boring.     2.He knows how to have fun. Ken is constantly trying new activites. He’s sporty, he’s musical, he’s artistic. What this means for you is [...]

Five Things We Love About Jamie Dornan

1. He’s Irish. Which means he has a cute accent, comes from the land of Guinness, and has luck on his side!       2. This Calvin Klein ad is–in our opinion–one of the steamiest ads they’ve done and it features Jamie.  We definitely wouldn’t mind coming across this in a magazine. Photo courtesy of E! Online 3. He’s a new father to baby girl with his beautiful wife Amelia Warner. We both love and hate this. Hate it because it means he’s taken, but love it because Amelia Warner is gorgeous and we’re happy he’s happy, right? 4. He’s endorsed by Kiera Knightley (who he dated for two years). She says, of his role in 50 Shades, “He’s [...]

Five Things We Love About Dakota Johnson

1. She said this in an interview with Elle: ”I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.” Umm..we totally love that attitude! If she can have no shame while acting out some, ahem, interesting scenes with Jamie Dornan, then we can be less ashamed of being the first one to dance at the birthday party or sing in the shower. 2. Her mom is Melanie Griffith. Her dad is Don Johnson. And we love Melanie Griffity in Working Girl. Don Johnson’s not too bad himself in Miami Vice. 3. She understands that not all love stories are the same:  “I just really understand it,” said Johnson. “I think it’s an incredible love story and that’s why it’s affected [...]
