Netflix's 'Look Both Ways' Review: Finally a Film That Accurately Portrays the Darker Parts of New Motherhood —

Over the years, it’s slowly become more and more normalized to talk about the hard parts of new parenthood. And while real-life parents are sharing their struggles of trying to cope with sleep deprivation and mastitis, TV shows and movies often gloss over some of the darker realities. Netflix’s film Look Both Ways, refreshingly, isn’t one of them. The movie stars Lili Reinhart as Natalie, who finds herself taking a pregnancy test the night of her college graduation. From there, two timelines

The Controversy Surrounding Netflix's Marilyn Monroe Biopic 'Blonde' — Femestella

Nonverbal Communication During Interviews

When you’re getting ready for an interview, you know that it’s essential to wear something that’s clean, professional, and reflects your personality. You can say all of the right things in an interview, but if you’re wearing a stained t-shirt and last night’s makeup, it’s unlikely that you’ll move on to the next round. The same concept applies to your nonverbal communication during an interview, too. Meeting every qualification in a job ad means very little if you roll your eyes and scowl throug

Setting Boundaries Between Work and Home

Thanks to technology, we are more accessible than ever. If your boss wants to get in touch with you at any given time, they usually can, regardless of whether you’re at your child’s parent-teacher conference or reading them a bedtime story. The good news is that most bosses and coworkers understand that you have a life outside the office. However, it’s not always easy to get them to respect that when you’re not signed on for work, you are not available. Period. This is why it’s so essential to

'Friends': Is Co-Creator Marta Kauffman's Apology Too Little Too Late? —

The show Friends was a phenomenon during its time. But in the 18 years since its final episode aired, the series’ creators have received a lot of criticism for the show’s lack of diversity and its many transphobic, fatphobic, and homophobic storylines. While creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane have acknowledged the show’s problems in hindsight, it wasn’t until this past week that either of them actively apologized for their wrongdoing. Speaking about the show’s lack of diversity in an inte

Return to Work or Take a Mom Pause After Having a Baby?

When you are well into your career and you find out that you’re pregnant, many thoughts will cross your mind. When will you tell your boss and co-workers the news? How does maternity leave work? How will you navigate the many doctor appointments in your future? And, of course, what will you do when maternity leave ends? Maybe you already know the answer to that last question, so it’s not something you’re overthinking, but for many moms, this is a tough decision. Even if you are convinced you’ll

It’s hard to say that any part of an interview is more important than another because a lot rides on everything from how you’re dressed to how you answer questions to whether or not you show up on time or two minutes late.
