Chef Vanessa Gianfrancesco says she got her big break at 18 months old rolling out pasta alongside her grandmother. As soon as she could walk, she was pushing up a chair near the counter to cook with whoever was in the kitchen. Now, she’s the resident chef at Breakfast Television, host of Gusto TV series One World Kitchen, and founder of lifestyle website Cooking With V.
We love a strong woman who isn’t afraid to *own* her truth. Lena Waithe is one of those women. She’s an Emmy award-winning comedy writer, actor, producer and activist who is making some major waves in Hollywood right now.
The Master of None star and creator of The Chi sat down with writer Jacqueline Woodson for Vanity Fair’s April cover story to give readers a peak into her childhood life and fierce determination. Here is everything we learned *and loved* about Waithe’s Vanity Fair profile.
California is known for it’s sandy beaches, it’s ~laid back vibes~it’s HOT citizens and it’s even hotter climate! E!’s Chloe Wilde recently went on the ultimate California trip where she hung out with bees, went on a wine safari (sign us up??) and visited sculptures in the desert.
Happy International Women’s Day, y’all! Ladies have accomplished a lot since last year’s International Women’s Day—fostering the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and organizing a second Women’s March, for example—and those accomplishments are definitely worth celebrating.
Today is International Women’s Day, and it’s no secret that we live and breath #GIRLPOWER around here. It’s also no secret that we’re just a little obsessed with Toronto artist RALPH. She’s already set the mood with us in studio, and now she’s back to set the mood for your International Women’s Day with a specially curated Spotify playlist!
She’s a fierce feminist, she’s in a rock band, she has a Masters in Journalism AND she’s obsessed with soup dumplings. Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES is the definition of everything we’ve ever wanted to be in this world (at least we have the soup dumpling thing down).
Feeling stressed? Depressed? Or just not your best? Whatever the drama, you deserve some time quality ~me time~
Whether a hot bubble bath is your thing or simply just curling up in bed, we’ve curated three different nighttime routines based around one of our fave essential oils– so they’re as beneficial as they are relaxing.
Valentine’s Day sometimes feels like it’s more complicated than it’s worth. If you’re in a relationship, what should you do to show your significant other that you love them? How much is too much? Is it necessary to put in more effort on Valentine’s Day than on any other day of the year? And if you’re single, should you try to go out and meet someone? Should you curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a sappy rom-com? Or should you try to forget that Valentine’s Day exists altogether?
If we’re being perfectly honest, all the exciting, mature Valentine’s Day visions we dreamed up as kids didn’t turn out to be that exciting after all. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a fun, frilly celebration of love, but instead it’s become an excuse to stress out about either being in a relationship or not being a relationship. Discount chocolate sales and romantic movie marathons aside, we don’t think we’d miss Valentine’s Day if it suddenly and mysteriously went away.
If you ever need an instant mood-booster, just sit down with Jade Bird. Her laugh is infectious, her mind is brilliant (and a little kooky), and we recently found out, her moodboard making skills are top notch. On the other hand- if you ever need to cry in the rain, just put on her EP ‘Something American’ and go.
Watch below as Jade chats about how she got into music, what it’s like to attend one of her shows, and what we can expect from her new music. And don’t miss her completed moodboard below!
Get your game face pants on because Super Bowl Sunday is almost here!
You may have heard that the Super Bowl is for football, but ~in our eyes~ it’s actually known as the championship of snacking. Wings and pizza are go-to choices, but it’s not a bad idea to also have some healthier options on hand (new year, new me…I guess).
Here are five healthy (and honestly very tasty) Super Bowl snack ideas that won’t be met with any *interference* from your viewing party guests.
