A reimagining of classic teen movie characters as Instagram aesthetics is the dreamiest thing ever
Molly Ringwald for the Instagram age
by Amanda Ross
It's a universal truth that every human being on the planet loves classic teen movies from the 80s and 90. Yes, every single human — even the ones who don't have electricity.
And if you were to draw a Venn diagram of people who love brat pack movies and people who spend their days looking at dreamy aesthetic pictures on Tumblr, it'd probably just look like a circle.

The pictures were created by Tumblr user @Warhol28, and yes, her blog is as dreamy as you'd expect.

Of course the batshit crazy characters in Heathers have the best aesthetics:
Finally, we have the Ferris Bueller gang which you know is excellent because the entire movie looks like stills from the coolest person you know's Tumblr. Can I be Sloan now, please?
OK, now I have to go delete everything on my Instagram and start over.

Eyebrow waxing is a scam, sorry!
Somebody has to say it
by Katie Way
Maintaining your eyebrows is a labor of love akin to keeping an orchid alive or baking a soufflé. They require a delicate touch, and one wrong move can lead to disaster: dead flower, collapsed pastry, fucked-up 'brows. 'Since nobody is born with a Cara Delevingne situation going on (honestly, Cara probably wasn't either), which means…
The ‘men are trash’ meme is probably the only good thing to come out of 2017
Good morning, men are trash
by Amanda Ross
Look, it hasn't been a very good week for women. As it happens, we can't get abortions. We can't even get birth control to prevent us from having abortions. Men who we thought were allies mocked us to white nationalists behind our backs, America's creepy uncle finally had his myriad misdeed exposed to the world,…
