Faking It

2 weeks agoHumor / odd : The Hairpin

by Maegan Fidelino I can’t remember the last time I left my home without at least a trace of makeup on my face. It’s a morning ritual that’s evolved some, but for the most part it's a collection of habits I’ve repeated for almost a decade. Show More Summary

2 weeks agoHumor / odd : The Hairpin

by Jazmine Hughes The first trailer for the Amy Winehouse documentary was released today. It's just a snippet, but parts of it—"I don't think I'm gonna be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it. I would probably go mad." especially—are already rattling in my brain. 0 Comments

2 weeks agoHumor / odd : The Hairpin
