Another Skarsgard?

In the trailer for Hemlock Grove, Netflix's latest production, it wasn't the forewarned lesbian necrophilia, violent hemorrhaging, or felatio that I found shocking. What shocked me is that there's another Skarsgård. Papa Stellan begat not only Alexander, but Bill who stars in the new series. My curiosity about this bloodline is piqued yet again. 
"In the shadows of a rusted Pennsylvania steel town, the mangled body of a teenage girl is discovered. As they hunt for a monster among them, rumors mount and many of the eccentric residents become suspects, from the newly arrived gypsy family to the wealthy Godfrey clan. In the twisted world of Hemlock Grove, everyone hides a dark secret. From director Eli Roth (“Hostel”) comes a chilling supernatural series based on Brian McGreevy’s novel."- Netflix

POST SNARK: J'adored Netflix's House Of Cards which features Kevin Spacey at his bitchy best.

Feeling Tartey?

Aqualillies For Tarte 

Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye & Cheek Palette ($38) SEPHORA

Aqualillies For Tarte 

Glamazon™ Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick ($26) SEPHORA

Aqualillies For Tarte 

Lights, Camera, Splashes™ Waterproof Mascara ($19)  SEPHORA

I'm loving the look of this new waterproof Tarte collection. Seeing as that I'm a swimmer, these items are practically a necessity. 
"This summer, make a splash with tarte's limited-edition color collection inspired by America's most glamorous synchronized swimming group! Aqualillies reinvent the classic art of water ballet and mesmerize audiences with their modern strength and vintage beauty. These true tartelettes—fearlessly powerful, healthy, real women—are the perfect muses for this high-performance, splash-proof collaboration. Maureen Kelly, founder and CEO of tarte, first spotted the Aqualillies during their high-energy performance on an episode of Glee. In that instant, she knew tarte, with its high-performance natural™ ingredients and powerful formulas, had to partner with these gorgeous athletes." -Tarte

Mad Men Madness

At long last, the season six premiere of Mad Men airs tonight at 9 on AMC. Season five was such a wild ride. The following were my Mad Men musings from last season: 

  • While Don's new apartment/wife is so very "Zou Bisou Bisou," he's more "Do Be Do Be Do"
  • With Sally's newfound womanhood, she inches every closer to the stripper pole 
  • In a bold move, Peggy up and quits SCDP (she's come a long way baby from being pregnant and not knowing it) 
  • Pete hooks up with Rory Gilmore (sacré bleu) and I throw up a little in my mouth
  • Via whip cream, Betty stress eats her way into a Weight Watcher's meeting 
  • Roger out Rogers himself and I for one couldn't be happier
  • Joan secures her future with a bona fide indecent proposal sans Robert Redford 
  • Lane does the unthinkable and goes all Sylvia Plath on our asses ("Dying is like an art"...unless you're trying to do it in a Jaguar)
