My Longstanding Lady Crush on Kristen Wiig

Do you remember that defining moment as a child watching something or experiencing something for the first time and being completely mind blown at it’s ability to cater specifically to you…and you only? Perhaps you sat, alone, pondering: How did this magical song/person or movie know I would find it so perfectly awesome? Well, for me, that thing was every sketch Kristen Wiig performed on SNL.

It all began with her infamous character, Penelope. This obnoxious character was known for her incessant one-upping delivered under her breath all the while twirling her hair. I took this character and ran with it. I did it at school, family parties, and just about anywhere else I thought no one would catch me stealing from the ultimate, Wiig-ster. It was just soo funny to me. I felt as though I had personally – me and only me – had discovered this completely genuine brand of comedy. And of course, I wanted to exploit it!

Knowing that none of my friends watched SNL and that I had could get away with ripping off this bit, I allowed my unknowing peers to laugh at (and with) me. I revelled in the attention. I revelled in the laughs. But mostly, I revelled in my ability to get it away with it all.

Of course, this was short-lived – and soon, my friends discovered my stolen comedy via YouTube. But that didn’t change the fact that Kristen Wiig taught me some valuable life lessons. Never be ashamed of your ‘funny face’! Don’t try and hide your double chin! Don’t run away from unflattering wigs! LIVE. LOVE. KRISTEN WIIG. read more…

Beauty Trend To Try: Comb Overs

combover1 copy

My driver’s licence picture was taken when I was sixteen years old. I was sporting a dumb smirk and a deep combover (which was “in” at the time). Okay, I know what you’re thinking, comb overs are reserved for 1) men + hair loss and 2) scene kids circa 2007, but they are making a (updated) come back. They’ve been seen on celebs, runways, ad campaigns for Fall 2014, and I have to say they actually look good – sultry, even. Here are a few comb overs you can incorporate into your beauty routine without looking like your creepy neighbour… read more…

Why I Want To Date Lloyd Dobler

Our perceptions of romance will forever be tarnished and skewed thanks to many Hollywood classics – particularly the films from the 80′s where the shy and eccentric girl always seems to win the love and affection of the local hottie. Even worse, our expectations for possible crushes are extremely high (because ain’t nobody gonna fill those shoes perfectly!!!) Regardless, this doesn’t mean that these ideal men cannot act as inspiration to the dudes of the world. John Cusack as his character Lloyd Dobler in the Cameron Crowe favourite Say Anything may be the most quintessential man ever created. Here are some reasons to explain his perfection. HEY GUYS: Pay close attention! read more…

Rainy Daze Playlist (4 MOPING ONLY)

Rainy days often feel like a slap in the face personally delivered to you by Mother Nature herself. However, they can also kind of be the greatest things ever. With so much pressure to be doing cool and fun stuff (instead of sitting at home watching Netflix), a little rain lets you kick back and not feel so bad for moping and /or doing absolutely nothing. So with the help of this mopey and ultra relaxed playlist, lay down and listen to music that basically sounds like the musical equivalent of a nap (in the best way possible, of course).

So let it rain on your parade! read more…

I Love My Boyfriend…. Jeans.

AYYYYY!!!! FORA HERE WITH A *FASHION ALERT*.

As you probably already know, boyfriend jeans are one of the most popular styles of denim around – and if you didn’t… well, now you do, lola! Regardless of the name, BF jeans don’t have to belong to your boyfriend what-so-ever, but if they do, then you score big time (because #economical, duh). But if you buy them new and in-store, you’re looking for a tight fit on the waist and a baggy fit down the leg – giving you a relaxed and roomy fit. The greatest thing about this ~trend 2 try~ is that you can either dress them up or dress them down! What’s better than going to a fancy event and being trendy plus comfy in a pair of coO0l looking denim? Nothing. Here’s a couple of different styles of BF jeans worn by celebrities, for some jeanspiration. And guess what? You don’t need a BF to own ‘em! Hashtag Sc0Re ~ read more…
