Happy hump day, everyone! Hopefully you're all staying warm and avoiding getting sick — if you feel something coming on, do yourself (and everyone else) a favor and start taking care of it ASAP. Don't be that person, OK?
There's a lot to catch up on today, so without further ado, here's a recap of everything you need to know from Wednesday, Jan. 17:
Grey's Anatomy + Its Badass Leading Lady
If you're one of the millions of people who've watched Grey's Anatomy over the years, celebrate the fact that its star, Ellen Pompeo (aka Meredith Grey), is one badass woman. In a piece published on Wednesday, Pompeo wrote honestly about experiencing pay inequality on-set and her fight to earn as much as her former co-star, Patrick Dempsey. Whether you're a fan of the show or not, this bold, inspiring piece is an absolute must-read.
OMG: A Sister, Sister reboot is happening, and this is not a drill.
2018 + New Beauty Products
January is more than halfway over, which means it's way past time to get rid of all your 2017 feels and embrace everything to come in 2018. And that's especially true for makeup and hair obsessives, because there are a ton of new beauty products out now you absolutely have to try, from highlighters to foundation sticks. What are you waiting for?
