Here at The Everygirl, we understand the nature of busy women. You barely have time to eat breakfast in the morning, let alone spend the day surfing the web. That’s why this week, we’re sharing some of our favorite articles on pop culture, design, and more.

Remember when Jake Gyllenhaal was the Prince of Persia WTF AMERICA.

 

2. The Emmy Noms dropped and OMG IT’S HOSTED BY STEPHEN COLBERT THIS YEAR, MY HEART IS EXPLODING.

Also lurving all the noms* for seasoned actresses — Fonda, Tomlin, Janey, Sarandon, Lange, Davis, Bassett, CARRIE FREAKIN FISHER (RIP you amazing human). WOMEN RULE.

*However, the Emmys and I are currently not speaking due to the following snubs: Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Fleabag (WUT WUT WUT), Rachel Bloom, the entire cast of Catastrophe, and The Leftovers (urm WUT).

 

3. A huge iceberg just broke away from Antarctica and guys, this is real bad news.

I low-key do not want to cook from the inside out.

 

4. Melissa Rauch (of The Big Bang Theory fame) announced her pregnancy this week and wrote an insanely heartfelt letter about the hard, and often heartbreaking, road to parenthood.

*All the applause* to Rauch for opening up about miscarriage, a topic so many women can relate to and yet one that is rarely discussed openly.

 

5. Game of Thrones is so. freakin. close. So here’s a fun who’s-gonna-die-this-season-you-know-it’s-at-least-one-person-you-love game.

I swear to goddess, if one more wolf dies I WILL LOSE IT.

 

6. When body positivity isn’t the answer — couldn’t ❤️  this woman more for expressing hard truths about what “loving your body” really means.

For me, body positivity was still reducing me to just my body, and I needed to remember that I am so much more.” PREACH

 

7. Are Crocs cool now what is happening I don’t know how to feel anymore????
