Birchbox Short List

Forgive us for stating the obvious but: It’s Monday, and you’re not quite ready to start the work week. That’s why we’re bringing you the Birchbox Short List, a spirited guide to the best celeb gossip, videos, beauty news, and more. Think of it as your second cup of Joe—we promise we’ll leave you feeling ready to conquer the day (and week) ahead. Here, our picks for the week of January 13.

So Fetch

It’s hard to believe that Mean Girls came out almost TEN years ago. Even though Tina Fey has moved on to hosting Golden Globes and Lindsay Lohan is… somewhere, it’s nice to know that you can keep the spirit of the movie alive in your accessories. A new collection from Stella & Bow highlights memorable quotes with pieces like a “Fetch” necklace and a barrette engraved to read “Full of Secrets.”

This Gif sums up everything we love about the irreverent Jennifer Lawrence, who knows how to have fun even on the crowded red carpet. And don't worry, no foul play towards Tay—afterward the two hugged and joked about it.

The Dollar Meal Diet

A teacher in Iowa claims he lost 37 pounds after eating only McDonalds for three months. Uh, what? “It’s our choices that make us fat,” he said. ”Not McDonald’s.” On that note we’ll have the Number 2.

Best Performances

Every year, we patiently wait for W to unveil it’s annual Best Performances Issue. This year, check out Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Jared Leto, and more in Juergen Teller’s signature stripped-down snapshots.

SATC3?

Hold on to your very tiny hats. Sarah Jessica Parker revealed in a recent InStyle interview that there may be more juice to squeeze from the Sex and the City franchise. Will it be another movie? The last one, well, it wasn’t so good. While we wait for more details take some time to play Vulture’s Sex and the City Quote Quiz. I got 11/12, just sayin’.

Girlfriend Overdoses on Lotion

Bless The Onion for bringing us a case of the belly laughs with this hard-hitting tale. To set the scene, a man comes home to find his girlfriend “unconscious in her bed and surrounded by dozens of empty bottles of daily moisturizers, anti-wrinkle treatments, and hydrating balms, suggesting an acute level of lotion toxicity.” L.O.L.

Beware of the Thut

First there was the “thigh gap,” then there was the “bikini bridge,” and there is… the “thut”? The Cut brings us news of a condition otherwise known as blogger butt, a name for the area of fat between your upper thigh and lower buttocks. As someone who sits at a desk all day, this news gave me pause. At least they have exercises to help fix it.

Meet Shasheer

January 18’s episode of SNL is going to be great, we can feel it. Not only is Drake the host and musical guest, it will also be the debut for the show’s newest cast member Shasheer Zamata. Zamata will be this cast’s only female black player, an addition we’re super excited about (especially because it means Keenan can stop playing women).
