DoubleX endorsements:

To see the facial pores of your favorite celebrities, Noreen Malone says to check out the Celebrity Close-Up and listen to Kacey Musgraves’ debut single “Merry Go ‘Round” while doing so.

Speaking of never leaving high school, Hanna Rosin recommends that all moms visit the anonymous blog Bad Playdate for chronicles of, well, you know, bad playdates.

Allison Benedikt recommends young and old check out Rookie’s 2011 series, “Higher Learning,” in which celebrities and writers reflect on their first year of high school. Oh, and just generally Allison recommends that, in this freezing cold weather, you eat pho.
