Full disclosure: I am totally ripping off the Pop Culture Round-up from the now defunct Pop Candy blog at USA Today. It was my favorite blog, and this was the weekly post I most looked forward to. I can not promise to have the same exquisite taste as Whitney Matheson.
The season of hot chocolate and twinkle lights is upon us, and the Lady Brains are here to help with all your gifting needs. Whether you have a sister who dreams of London or a friend who craves inspiration, our gift lists will point you in the right direction. Happy gifting!
The year? 2013. My task? To unite the hilariously funny, kind, adorable, superhero lovin’ actor Zachary Levi to the hidden love of his life, my hilariously funny, kind, adorable, superhero lovin’ cousin/roommate, Lady Candice. My plan? Utilize Twitter. I sent him a Tweet every day. Sometimes, two or three times a day. With wit and charm I introduced his soon-to-wife, my cousin, and mercilessly listed thousands of reasons why they should be together. Celebrities are normal people, folks.
A few months back, I was sitting around being fabulous (or binge-watching The Good Wife, I can’t remember which), when my cousin Andria and I began chatting about how wonderful it would be to start a blog with our favorite ladies. Our friends are just too cool to keep under wraps, we concluded. How selfish to keep them all to ourselves! Their stories are too funny. Their minds are too clever. Dare I say it, they are too sexy for this song.
