ICYMI: It Smells Like Team Spirit

ICYMI, team work rullezzzz. This week, some killer collabs in the music and fashion worlds were announced – and of course, you can’t help but *cry happy tears* when two of your favourite things combine to make something better. Take peanut butter and jam, for example. They’re good separately, but amazingly ~enhanced~ when put together – and H&M & Alexander Wang are the same type of deal, y’know? read more…

DJ CRUSH: 8 New York Boys To Watch

I, like 89% of females, have a very specific type: cute boys doing musical things.

Though these “musical things” are typically more in the vein of bands (and the folk in them), I don’t think anyone can deny the appeal of a good/aesthetically-pleasing DJ.

Since we’ve already articulated our non-creepy appreciation for verified H0ttIEz/popular spinners (like Ryan Hemsworth), this time around, we decided to scour ~The Internet~ to find a collective of [equally crush-worthy boys] who don’t have hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers to their name. Based out of New York, these 8 guys spin anywhere from the hippest clubs to the most elite of fashion parties – and, since they’re all fairly new to the game, they’re totally attainable as new BFFs or boyfriends. Lol.

So, even though we might’ve said that it’s a fact that gals go harder, for the sake of stud-ly eye candy etc, here’s our list of TOTEZ HYPE DJs that we TOTEZ have simultaneous crushes on!

…Field trip across the border, anyone? read more…

Pixie 101: Now What?

So you’ve made the plunge. Your hair is scattered around you on the salon floor, and your reflection is looking back at you wearing nothing but a big smile and a lot of exposed ear action. Hurrah! You have a pixie cut!

Congratulations aside, you take your new ‘do home and play around with it for a while. A headband here, a few bobby pins there – anything goes. But after a while you get a bit bored. Nothing seems to look right, and you wake up in the morning feeling dejected and a little mussed up (cue unfixable bedhead). This is when you need a little mid-pixie pick me up, and some ~fresh~ new ideas for your budding spring style! And lucky for you, they’re right here. read more…

6 Reasons Why Sky Ferreira Is Still The Coolest Ever

She’s been called a party girl, a wild child, and a one hit wonder. Since signing her first record deal at 15, the singer-songwriter, model, and actress has gone through one transformation after another. We’ve seen her canoodling with tarantulas in her video for Red Lips (directed by Terry Richardson no less) and strutting down the catwalk at Saint Laurent. The now 21-year-old starlet has a talent for grabbing our attention like none other – and with the release of her first studio album Night Time, My Time, Sky’s raw talent has quite literally put the doubters to rest. Not that we’re surprised. We’ve long had a girl-crush on the L.A.-native, and had no problems coming up with 6 reasons to prove that she is still the coolest chick ever. read more…

MIXTAPE: Earth Day

We’re assuming a Simon and Garfunkel state of mind: I am a rock, I am an island. Every creature great and small gets a shout out this week as we celebrate what Childish Gambino likes to call the oldest computer: Earth. In the spirit of all things green and grown here are twenty tracks about the lady of the hour ~Mother Nature~. Whether you’re planting a tree or squeezing in a hike this earth day, consider it an eco-friendly excuse to wear dungarees. (Y) read more…

The Bottom Line: Under Eye-deas

Is it relevant to say that in terms of face decoration, under-the-eye has totally been ignored as a place to decorate?! There’s all this hype about liner, shadow, smoky eyes, cat eyes, etc, but what about all of the space for creativity underneath? (And no, we’re not talkin’ about sad emo eyez.

I personally love when I see a pop of colour under the eyes on the runway – but I’m all for having these trix hop off the catwalk and find their place in the makeup regimens of /real/ humans. So let’s explore, shall we? read more…

Good Advice: Sunnies 4 Ur Face Shape

Since April showers bring May flowers/generally fun times, a plethora of sunglasses definitely fall on my spring shopping list. This is not to say that sunglasses are exclusive to spring (BECAUSE TRULY, THEY’RE NECESSARY ALL YEAR ROUND BECAUSE UV PROTECTION), but it just seems more /natural/ to pick up lots of eyewear for the impending warm weather, no?

Now, as far as I know, the traditional way to shop for sunglasses is to go into a major chain store with your besties, try on the weirdest sunnies on the shelf, and make fun of each other until you find a pair that actually works. And while this can be entertaining, knowing what works for your face shape can definitely speed up the process and give you more flattering results… read more…
