MashTV: 2 Broke Girls

I have decided to review some of my favorite shows of the season. So let's get the ball rolling with CBS' 2 Broke Girls. 

I'll start this review off by saying that I love Kat Dennings, she has a knack for playing tough as nails, but with a heart of gold characters and Max, one of the broke girls is no exception. Without giving too much away (I've only caught the first episode thus far), 2 Broke Girls follows Max and Caroline (Beth Behrs), the former a waitress working two jobs, who whips up amazing cupcakes (i don't know who makes them but they do look good), the latter the a former rich girl whose family loses all of their money thanks to her dad's ponzi scheme. For her part, Beth does a wonderful job of making Caroline likeable, you want to root for her right off the bat, not only because she's a fish out of water, but because you can tell she is determined to swim.  Created by Whitney Cummings and Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City), Broke Girls seems to be off to a good start.  The show is one of my favorite comedies of the year so far (I look forward to checking out Surburbgatory) because at the heart is an unlikely friendship. Can't wait to see what adventures these two go on.

Rachel Roy

Rachel Roy's ss '12 collection epitomizes easy breezy spring style. Loving the shorts and the open knit sweaters and dress...glad to see that they're back for next season.

I know summer is over, but this is one of my favorite songs off of Beyonce's new CD, it feels like summer with a bit of '90's flavor plus it has Andre 3000 and Kanye West, needless to say it's been in constant rotation on my iTunes.  Enjoy.

Zara Online

If you're anything like me and you live stateside, you've been waiting for Zara to go online forever, well, the wait is finally over, Zara's online US store launches tonight at midnight. There were rumors of a 6 p.m. opening for fans of their Facebook page...but that hasn't worked for me. So, until the site officially  launches, I've picked out a few favorite items that I definitely want to grab.

If you're like me, you immediately associate Gloria Steinem with the women's right movement of the 60's and 70's. I'm pretty sure my assessment  of her didn't really go beyond that, luckily though I watched the HBO Documentary on her Gloria: In Her Own Words, a too short, if you ask me (it's just an hour long) overview of her life beginning with her first big story, an expose on the Playboy Club and the conditions the women there worked under.It was just the beginning of a new mission Ms. Steinem had on working for women's equality, a goal that is still not fully realized (women only make 75 cents for every $1 a man makes), it gives insight into the progress she has made in the 40+ years since she became one of the faces for the movement.  I was amazed at the negative feedback she encountered, especially from the other women who she was trying to help. Gloria's goal was for women to have a choice...something that my generation has definitely benefited from, even if we haven't fully realized the dream (of her or Dr. King but that's a story for another day). The film is definitely worth checking out. The trailer is below.
