Rissy Roo’s on the Mid Season Finale of Pretty Little Liars Season 5!

We can’t believe it…the Tuesday of all Tuesdays is here…it’s time for the mid season finale of Pretty Little Liars Season 5, dubbed the ominous #FatalFinale because this episode isn’t a matter if IF someone will end up dying, but WHO will die, and when/how. ABC Family has been sending the teasers out non-stop this past week, and the day has finally come: tonight at 8pm EST. Brace yourself for Episode 12, “Taking This One To The Grave,” because there will be One Less Liar!

Watch out for One Less Liar during the PLL Season 5 Finale!

That’s not the only reason that we are excited for this destined-to-be-intense PLL episode, though! For all of our local Roo Girls in the Atlantic, Cape May, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey, you will be able to see the premiere of our Rissy Roo’s TV ad! We are so excited to be premiering our ad during one of our favorite TV shows, especially since one of the main actresses in the show, Ashley Benson (who plays Hanna Marin on PLL), is the face of one of our favorite dress designers, Faviana!

If you miss the ad premiere tonight, though, don’t worry – there will be plenty of other times to see it, as it will be airing on ABC Family and MTV through the week before Thanksgiving.

Lorde’s Sneak Peek at Taylor Swift’s New Album 1989!

Last week, we shared Taylor Swift’s brand new song Shake It Off and her announcement that she’ll be coming out with a new album on October 27th called 1989. Well, we have another inside scoop for you! Tay and Lorde are besties, so it’s no surprise that Lorde got a sneak peek of what 1989 is all about.

Taylor Swift and Lorde

Just as we suspected the new hit single “Shake It Off” is only the beginning of many more fun and catchy songs from Swift. Here’s what Lorde had to say when she was interviewed by the New Zealand radio station The Edge:

“I actually heard it [Shake It Off] a while ago. I love it. What I’m gonna say about it [1989] is…that it is quite simply, as someone who’s a fan of pop music, it is joyous. It is such a great record. Honestly, it’s so good.”

Well, now we definitely can’t wait for Taylor Swift’s new album to come out! That’s not all Lorde talked about with The Edge, of course, though (she announced that she’ll be going on a tour of New Zealand!). You can watch the whole clip on their website. And, we’ll make sure to keep you updated as new news on 1989 is released!

Shake It Off by Taylor Swift Is Our New Anthem!

The time has finally come – Taylor Swift debuted a brand new song during her Yahoo! live stream today, and we have already become so obsessed with it! The new song is called “Shake It Off” and it is by far our new favorite dance jam (we may have already listened to it 10 times in a row…). Shake It Off by Taylor Swift is all about brushing off the haters and…you guessed it…shaking it off and moving on. We can definitely get behind that message! Watch the new video here:

We love the chorus:

“But, I keep cruzin’, can’t stop, won’t stop groovin’, It’s like I got this music in my mind sayin’ it’s gonna be alright!”

We’re thinking it’s this very song that’s keeping her cruzin’ right along. What an anthem!

That’s not all that T-Swift revealed during the Yahoo! live stream, though. She also revealed the name of her new upcoming album, which will be available October 27th. It’s called 1989, and she’s been working on it for two years now, so it should be an incredible listen (especially with this song on it)! She explained that the album was inspired by the “late ’80s” pop she was listening to. She described the ’80s as “a time of limitless potential,” a time of being bright and bold. Of course, Tay was also born in 1989, so that may of had some influence on her album title choice!

Needless to say, you can definitely hear the influence in her new single. She even said during the stream that this will be her, “first documented, official pop album.” No more country Taylor Swift – bring on the pop superstar! We can wait to see what else she has in store for binging some pop influence to her music!

What do you think of Tay’s new song? Leave us a comment below!

Well, we’re here to help your search along and narrow it down to your perfect look.

This week, we wanted to focus in on one of our favorite new trends that has taken hold over the past year: the 2 piece dress look. The 2 piece look started to to get popular in Prom 2013, and became the trend of the season for Prom 2014. So, you better believe that it’s one of the most popular looks to wear or Homecoming 2014! There are so many stunning 2 piece looks for this coming fall season that it’s hard to pick only a few, but we narrowed it down to just 3 looks to help give you ideas of styles to expect – each from a different dress designer. Check them out below!

1. Rachel Allan 6646

Rachel Allan 6646

Rachel Allan is our newest dress designer at RissyRoos.com, and her looks are just incredible! She’s a big proponent of the 2 piece look, and we can’t blame her. While there are so many great Rachel Allan 2 piece styles, one of our hottest dresses of the season already is Rachel Allan 6646, and we’re sure you can see why!

This fitted two piece dress pulls out all the stops with its bright and bold pink beading throughout, and a brilliant high neckline that finishes off the look! We love this dress because it’s not only good for Homecoming, but it’s also so perfect for any other party or semi-formal event. You could also dress it down and wear it for just a night out with the girls!

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Before The Summer’s Gone? Yes Please!

We love summer…but we’re also huge fans of the fall months because of Homecoming, and because while it may be a littler cooler out, the fall is still perfect weather for dresses. So, we were happy to hear of some exciting news from Starbucks to help us get into the fall (and Homecoming) mood! Although autumn doesn’t technically start until September 23rd, the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte may be coming sooner than you think! Nothing says fall like everything pumpkin, afterall!

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

The infamous drink (it even has it’s very own Twitter handle!) isn’t set to return until September 2nd, but a Starbucks representative recently hinted at an early release: “As in previous years, there may be an opportunity for customers to gain early access to this seasonal favorite.”

That’s not the only clue that Starbucks has revealed, though. The official Twitter account for the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (@TheRealPSL) has been hinting that the drink will be back next week! Check out some of the hints Starbucks tweeted:


We can definitely second that “YAAAAAS” and will be following @TheRealPSL with eager anticipation! Afterall, what’s better to pair with fall dress styles than a warm drink in your hand like apple cider or a Pumpkin Spice Latte?! We can only hope that Starbucks offers a special Summer Pumpkin Spice Latte on ice! Bring on the pumpkin!

Behind-The-Scenes Pics From The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Photo Shoot

We are itching for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premiere to finally hit! While we love summer time, us Roo Girls seriously can’t wait for October 2nd to come already. Season 5 of TVD ended so abruptly that waiting months and months and months for the next season to air has been torture…in the most vampiric way possible, of course! Well, the TVD gods have finally shined down on us by giving us some little tid bits to hold us over until Fall comes: a sneak peek of the Season Six promo photo shoot!

The show’s stars shared behind-the-scenes videos and pics from the photo shoot on their Instagrams that are so steamy (literally)! The most exciting news? It looks like Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is in some of the photos and videos…so we can only hope that means he’s back for Season 6! Check out the Instagram posts below and decide for yourself whether you think he’ll be back in action for the next TVD season.

Pretty awesome pictures and videos, right? You can guess what we loved the most (other than seeing the faces of the hot TVD guys, of course), Nina Dobrev’s (Elena on The Vampire Diaries) sexy black cut-out dress! The gown looked so perfect on her – we wish we could see the final photo shoot of her in the dress already! If you want her cut-out look for your next formal event, we’re all about Nika style 9041! This gown features a strapless sweetheart bodice, illusion straps and back, and side cut outs just like Nina’s dress. The gown also features elegant embellished cuff sleeves.

Nika 9041

Did these photos and videos get you itching for more TVD already? They sure got us wanting more – we hope you’re as excited for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 as we are! Get ready for the Fall and October (and hopefully more Damon)!
