My latest tv obsession is the CW tv show Gossip Girl.  I know, I know, it's a little sad how I love these teenage angst shows but really this one is so good!  The last four seasons are available on Netflix so I've slowly been making my way through the seasons. So when I got this press release about Leighton Meester (Blair, on Gossip Girl) using … [Read more...]
