A new trailer has been released for the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and once again I feel that quickening in my chest that can only mean I’m having a super intense fangirl moment.

Understatement of the century: buses in Brooklyn can be unreliable. I had given up on waiting for the bus at ALL unless I actually saw it coming with my own eyes…until the advent of the Bus Checker app! With this app, you can zoom in on any bus stop, click on it and see a(…)
There are certain times when everything on the racks fits your body type, and you could go from H&M to Opening Ceremony and find a suit that fit. This season, however, I’ve been fresh outta luck – and I’m assuming anyone with more than a C-cup is feeling the same way. Step into Forever 21,(…)
