1. "The Affair" Returns (SHO)
The best thing that's happening to me this weekend? The return of "The Affair" of course! I've talked about this show before (why don't you ever listen to me??) so this shouldn't be new to y'all. I won't give any spoilers, but I will share what show creator Sarah Treem said to TV Guide: "I think that Season 3 is about accountability. I would say that Season 1 was "The Affair" and Season 2 was "The Crisis After the Affair." Before it gets better, it gets worse. Season 3 is basically about the characters taking stock of what's happened and figuring out how they themselves are accountable."
Sounds intriguing, eh? CATCH UP on showtimeanytime.com.
2. Two online magazines/blogs that speak to women: Lenny Letter and Jezebel
This one's a "twofer:"
Jezebel describes itself as an "online magazine focused on celebrities, sex, feminism, and issues relating to women's empowerment."
Lenny Letter is "the best from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner in feminism, style, politics, friendship & more." Sign up for the newsletter to get Lenny in your mailbox twice a week.
Both are essential, especially if you're a snarky, foul mouthed, pissed off bitch like myself.
(P.S. If you're reading this Jezebel or Lenny, I want to write for you! Call me!)

5. UK Christmas Ads
OK usually I'd be complaining that Christmas is being sprung on us too early but in the case of these adorable ads from the UK, I'm making an exception. Do yourself a favor and check out the holiday ad from Heathrow Airport (the teddy bear ad) here; the John Lewis Buster the boxer ad here (this one also promotes The Wildlife Trusts); and the Marks & Spencer Mrs. Clause ad here. You'll get all the feels from each of them.
And so the holiday season begins! Be good to one another everyone.
