+Hands up if you’ve ever found yourself wasting three hours (or more) watching cat videos on Youtube.

+She can fly! Catch a glimpse of Allison Williams as Peter Pan in the first promo for NBC’s Peter Pan Live!

+Listen to “Say Yes”—the title track off of Afternoons’ new album. The band’s joyful, bouncing rock is the perfect way to end the week. Plus, it's the brainchild of NYLON’s “Oh You Pretty Things” series creator/writer Brian Canning, so you know it's good.

+You can now shop Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's It girl-approved style at a super affordable price (we’re talking under $30!), when their new jewelry line AMKxSM, hits StyleMint on November 1.

Advice of the Day:

“I love saying ‘yes’ and I love saying ‘please.’ Saying ‘yes’ doesn’t mean I don’t know how to say no, and saying ‘please’ doesn’t mean I am waiting for permission. ‘Yes please’ sounds powerful and concise. It’s a response and a request. It is not about being a good girl; it is about being a real woman.” – Amy PoehlerYes Please
