The Comment Awards Are for Pioneers, Pop Stars, and Princesses

Yo! Did y’all have a crazy week too? I feel like everything happened all at once this week. There were amazing things on the site! We launched our Unicorn Plan-It interview series! We chatted about the women that we used to love (or still do) and the music that we’re embarrassed to love. Fall happened, so there are obviously grandpa sweaters that need to be purchased/worn. Speaking of fall, maybe it’s that time to meet that special someone??? You know what would go perfect with that grandpa sweater and that special person? Whiskey cookies. Duh.

In other news, Riese watched Glee for you and Carly let us on to this brand new show with *cough* Julie Goldman and Dana Fairbanks, so. Lastly, in the world of first person essays, Kate talked about how to manage body dysphoria and Gaby told us how to deal with getting ‘sunned.‘ The more you know, flamingoes.
