I have a major, MAJOR girl crush on Zooey Deschanel.
She’s beautiful with flawless skin and piercing blue eyes, an incredible mane of hair and quirky sense of style. She’s funny, adorkable and a total triple threat; she acts, sings (listen to her here) and best of all… she’s a fellow blogger (she founded www.hellogiggles.com)
I think that if Zooey and I were to meet we would be great friends. I also think that I would be friends with Zooey’s character, Jess, from the hit TV show New Girl.
Have you seen New Girl yet? NEW GIRL is a charming, offbeat comedy about friends, flings and modern relationships. After a bad breakup, free-spirited optimist Jess moves in with three bachelors who have plenty of issues of their own. Winston is a former athlete, Nick is a law school dropout, and Schmidt is a wannabe womanizer in love with…himself. Together with her super-hot BFF [best friend forever] Cece, this NEW GIRL discovers that hanging out with the guys can be a challenging – and hilarious – adventure!
Not only do I find the show hilarious but it brings back memories of my time living in a pokey little house in the UK with four (and at one point five) boys. It was chaotic, but fun and never, ever boring! There was even an obsession with Dirty Dancing, but it wasn’t mine! Everyone was completely different yet got on so well. 4 and a half years later, spread over 3 countries and we’re still really, really close.
Had New Girl been on at the time I was living in Pixey Place (the name of our street) then we would have definitely had a Douchebag Jar and I can tell you now it would have been packed! What’s a Douchebag Jar you ask? It’s like a swear jar but for douchey / stupid comments. The room mates in New Girl set up a Douchbag Jar specifically for one of the boys, Schmidt, who is known for coming out with some really inappropriate comments. The others call him out on it and as a punishment he has to put money into the Douchebag Jar. Once the jar is full the housemates all go out for drinks, ice cream, takeaway, whatever.
I love the Douchebag Jar and have set one up at work and at home (for a few particular visitors… you know who you are).

One thing Zooey Deschanel and her character Jess have in common is their sense of style, the girls are major trend setters. Here are a few of my favourite Zooey/Jess looks:
