That’s right. Rihanna has returned to Instagram after a six-month ban from the platform (punishment for a few NSFW pics).

Her first celebratory images included a peek at her cowabunga-worthy Halloween costume. Yep, RiRi and her friends painted themselves green as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Welcome back, @badgalriri. And keep those snaps coming.

Dawson’s Creek introduced us to the perfect storm of romance, adolescent angst, and emotional indie tunes. The giggle-inducing Dachshund’s Creek, on the other hand, gives us a crew of wigged dachshunds re-enacting infamous scenes from the teen drama.

The group of canines lives out our favorite moments – from double dates and sneaking into boys’ bedrooms – with the familiar banter of actors James Van Der Beek, Joshua Jackson, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams as voiceovers.

Now who wants to make posters of these furry superstars? I’ll take one, please.

And the award for coolest Supreme Court justice goes to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Or “The Notorious R.B.G.,” as the Internet likes to call her.

A popular Tumblr, home to LOL-worthy memes and funny tidbits about the Associate Justice, created the T-shirt in honor of Ruth. Its graphic-gone-viral is an image of her face, inspired by the late rapper Biggie Smalls, a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. In an interview with NPR, Ruth confirmed she has indeed seen the tees and keeps a few of them around to give as gifts.

It’s comforting to know that in between sitting on the Supreme Court and advocating for women’s rights, R.B.G. still finds time for a sense of humor.

Every year, Art Basel, a week-long international art show, overflows from its Miami Beach Convention Center home base and permeates every inch of the area. Outdoor artworks are displayed in nearby parks. Music acts flock to the area. Performances spring up in random spots. Below, we’ve highlighted every Miami Beach must-do during Art Basel Week 2014 (including where to grab a little R&R away from the excitement).

Over the last several years, New York–based artist Carlton Scott Sturgill has built an unusual collection of discarded Ralph Lauren shirts. But rather than dropping them at the nearest thrift store, he turned the haul into an eco-friendly project, creating realistic rose bushes at the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.

Designed in collaboration with Arts Gowanus and the NY Department of Transportation, Carlton’s “faux garden” features pinstriped and brightly colored roses. The floral sculpture is a bit of a contrast with its surroundings at the canalwhich is famously known as an illegal garbage dumping ground. 

Now, I thought I was crafty when I turned a pair of old jeans into “jorts” last summer. After seeing this talented artist turn castoffs into works of art, I found some serious inspiration for my next DIY project. Watch out, Pinterest.

A bold new haircut. A best-selling book. Lena Dunham is on a headline-stealing roll and shows zero signs of stopping. The actress-slash-writer announced at the New York Film Festival that she’s adapting the young adult novel Catherine, Called Birdy into a film.

The book (a favorite from the 90s) is set in late-13th-century England and focuses on a twelve-year-old girl’s attempts to ditch suitors. The only catch in Lena’s plans? She seems to think the screenplay will be a tough sell to studios. “I just need to find someone who will fund a PG-13 medieval movie,” Lena said.

Wishing you luck, girl. If the movie gets made, this mega-fan will definitely be at the midnight showing.

That’s right. Cosmopolitan, your favorite guilty-pleasure glossy, is about to hit primetime. And (thankfully) not in the form of another reality show. Instead, this series will be a fictional comedy loosely based on life at Cosmo. The single-camera sitcom will center around a failed political blogger who restarts her career in NYC as an editor. As for the script? It will be penned by writer Leslye Headland and the magazine’s real-life editor in chief Joanna Coles.

Here’s hoping this yet-to-be-named comedy will be a little less Selfie and a little more 30 Rock.

Yesterday was a big day for celebrity pregnancy announcements. Coco Rocha, model and social media maven, shared her happy news with followers via an Instagram video. The camera circles Coco – who wears a nude bodysuit – until “Baby Conran Arriving Spring 2015″ flashes on the screen.

The other mom-to-be, Blake Lively, was more subtle in her approach. Buried deep at the bottom of a Preserve blog post is an image of the actress showing off her baby bump.

Could one of these bundles of joy be the next Suri Cruz? My guess is a resounding yes.

If you’ve ever questioned which friendships are worth fighting for, how loud is too loud, or whether you can wear booty shorts and still be called a feminist (answer: yes), Lena Dunham is here to set the record straight. ask-lena

In anticipation of her September 30 Not That Kind of Girl book release, the Girls star offers sage advice in a fearlessly frank video series titled Ask Lena. In each hilarious installment of the 12-part video series, she answers real questions submitted by fans. Topics range from provocative dressing to “unfunny girlfriends.”

I would highly recommend giving the show a watch to tide you over until her book release. Divvy it up at two videos a day – or if you’re a binge-watcher like me, watch them all right now.
