I lied. For 6 months.

And it’s genuinely eating me up inside. Have you ever told one of those little white lies that’s gone on just a liiiiiittle bit too long? And then it goes past that point (you know what I’m talking about) and becomes so interwoven into your real life, spread to so many people, that you can’t extricate yourself out of it? You and the lie become indelibly linked and you start to care about the people to whom you’ve told it, but then telling them the truth would make what&#8217…

Top 10 Iconic Fashion Moments in Film

To be clear, this is not a list about fabulous, historically accurate, dramatic costumes in film. This list encapsulates the most memorable moments of fashion captured on camera that have lingered in our minds and pervaded our collective consciousness. These clothes have endured the test of time and become a part of pop culture as we know it. 10. Sex And The City – The Movie The FIRST one, obviously. From the array of wedding gowns Carrie parades about in (hellooo Vivienne Westwood), to the 80s delights that each of the ladies model, to the return of the iconic little tutu…

My All-Time RuPaul All Stars

It’s no secret that I am a beyond massive fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but it is less widely known that I recently disowned a previously-valued friend who had never in her life heard of it (not “hadn’t watched it”, she had lit-er-ally NEVER HEARD OF IT! In 2017! She works in media! She actually straight-up asked me what a “ruple” was, like the martian she evidently is. R.I.P. friendship, it was fun while it lasted). So…yeah, it’s a big…

13 Life Lessons From David Rose

Look, I KNOW, stay with me. Sure, he could be considered clueless, useless and entitled to the nth degree, but there are many things to be learned from David! And I don’t just mean “what not to do”, I swear. He can truly help you be the best you you can be (and that is a real English sentence that is correct) (I think). I mean, other than having the greatest sweater collection, eyebrows, coif and facial expressions ever of all time, there’s so much to be learned from him to live your best…

Beybies

The world today feels…different somehow. You can sense it right? There’s a more vibrant glow in the light. The crisp air is crisper and fresher than any other day. It’s like everything is clearer, more vivid, brighter somehow. And above all, there’s an overwhelming joyful vibe permeating all our collective senses. And on Twitter. It’s happening. Or, it has happened. And They’re here. Or, nearly here. Our Queen is on the cusp of bringing two more blessed lives into this world and we are all the more better…

Up Close & Personal with Nick Iadanza – Part 2

So it turns out Nick and I can really talk, and when chat gets to Survivor Game Changers, Real Housewives, and, um, Oprah…it’s hard to stop us. Read on to learn more about some of Nick’s VERY controversial opinions (and yes, we were fighting). Aph: Now. The Game Changers finale. I damn near lost my mind. You know what I’m talking about. What was your reaction when Cirie was ousted WITHOUT A SINGLE VOTE AGAINST HER, ROBBING HER ONCE AGAIN OF THE CHANCE TO GO TO THE END WHEN SHE WAS SO CLOSE…

Up Close & Personal with Nick Iadanza – Part 1

You guys. YOU GUYS. It happened. After months of occasional check-ins and freak-outs, Nick and I fiiiiinally sat down and had a full, proper de-brief on Survivor Gamechangers following the finale. But first, I wanted to hear all about his experience on Australian Survivor, and obviously live vicariously through him. He was always one of my faves out in Samoa (which you will be VERY well aware of if you read my recaps) and I never once thought there was anything even remotely snake-like about him at ALL. So there. What follows is a very passionate…

100 Observations I Have Made In The Last 12ish Months

You guys, this is my ONE HUNDREDTH POST on aphroisms and a LOT has happened in the almost-12 months since I started the blog. I mainly mean in the world of pop culture/the world in general, but I’d like to think there was also some personal growth and self-awareness thrown in. Come with me on the journey. I wrote 99 blogs. Survivor and Real Housewives epitomise everything great about reality TV and it seems like you guys agree. If recapping shows could be a full-time job, I would do it in a heartbeat even…

G.O.A.T.

By now, you’ve heard the stats, probably skimmed the headlines, watched the highlights, etc. You know that Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last night – the most wins of any man of all time in the Grand Slam era (tied behind him with 14 titles apiece are Sampras and Nadal). 5 years after his last GS win (Wimbledon, 2012). 1 month after returning from a 6-month hiatus due to injury. During his 100th Australian Open match (30 whole matches ahead of the next one down the line). Against his #1 rival…

Boy, Bye

Is the collective ~vibe~ I’m sure we are all feeling for 2016. But I’ve been thinking all year long now (hah hah hah)…can it even get better in 2017? Should one even make a single resolution of self/life-improvement or are we doomed by the actions, events and choices we made in 2016 forevermore? I mean, it will now go down as the Year That Shall Not Be Named in all of history but hasn’t it set the basis for THIS year? How can 2017 be an improvement withOUT Carrie Fisher…
