What does Carrie Underwood do...
when she's not busy winning Grammys, cohosting the CMAs, working on a new album or having a baby boy? She's a fashion designer, of course! But not just any fashion: Her Calia

Thanks to the Genius...
of Matthew Weiner, I've been hooked on Mad Men since day one. Now, with just seven episodes to go before Don Draper and the Scotch-drinking chain smokers at Sterling Cooper & Partners say goodbye, I'm already going through withdrawl. I know all good things must come to an end. I'm just hoping that when it wraps up, we learn the fate of every character we've watched despair and triumph for the last eight years.
If You Find Yourself in New York...
check out Finding Neverland, starring Glee's Matthew Morrison and Kelsey Grammer, and set to open on Broadway this month. I was treated to a mini-concert of six songs, and I can't wait to see the whole show. Producer Harvey Weinstein guarantees that this story of J.M. Barrie's relationship with the family who became his inspiration for Peter Pan will be one of the best musicals on Broadway. In Harvey we trust!

My Recent Slumber Party...
with favorite daughter Kirby began at Lincoln, a charming Washington D.C., restaurant, where we shared barbecued pork and—wait for it!—duck-fat biscuits. They're served on a cutting board with the melt-in-your-mouth pulled pork in a Mason jar and pickles on the side so you can assemble sliders to your heart's content. Don't let the duck fat throw you—these biscuits are light, fluffy and unforgettable. Find the duck fat biscuit recipe here

She's Funny That Way,
co-executive produced by Wes Anderson, is in theaters next month. It's a screwball comedy all about an escort-turned-actress (Imogen Poots) and her former client (Owen Wilson), a director. Then we meet his wife, her ex-lover, a playwright and one mean therapist (Jennifer Aniston, in a scene-stealing performance) and watch their lives collide. One of my favorite lines: "I believe that laughter is the best calorie burner."

I May Have Noticed This Bag...
for its bright yellow trim, but what really got me were the bazillion compartments. Not only can this cork and leather tote double as a briefcase, but it has specific places for a water bottle, a tablet, a phone, a wallet and keys. Yellow isn't your favorite shade? No problem—they have similar styles in other colors.
