Instagram of the Week: Everyone Wants To Hang Out with Mindy Kaling
We’re not ashamed to admit that we have a major girl crush on actress/comedienne/writer Mindy Kaling. After seeing her pop up in a string of supporting movie roles, we’re psyched to see Mindy rocketing her way to the top as the star of her new show The Mindy Project, and enjoying a lot of buzz for her memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). It also doesn’t hurt that homegirl can rock a plum lip like no other.
Community manager Rachel brought along a copy to read during her #mexication (yes, that is a hashtag, and yes, you can use it to follow her adventures on Twitter and Instagram). So tell us, are you a fan of comedy’s newest it-girl?

The first time someone told me I looked like Mindy Kaling (a.k.a. Kelly from The Office), I didn’t know who they were talking about. But a quick Google search kicked off my obsession with the comedienne. It started with me reading her book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, continued with me following her on every social media outlet, and culminated in my addiction to her new show The Mindy Project. It’s also turned into a Birchbox office favorite—who doesn’t like watching a hot mess doctor try to find love?
1) The Side Part: This was one of the biggest trends we saw on the red carpet last night. An easy way to instantly looked more polished, the side part looked amazing on January Jones, who rocked a sleek updo, and on Amy Poehler and Lucy Liu, who both chose to style their hair in off-to-the-side waves.
