Australia has contributed a lot of wonderful musicians to our lives and headphones, and the gods from down under have outdone themselves yet again. Meet Josef Salvat, our latest music obsession with eyes so defined I can’t believe he’s not wearing eye liner. There are very few differences between Salvat and Salivating. Coincidence?

A Pale Girl’s Prerogative

Pale-Header

As a girl on the paler side of the skin spectrum, I have always had a love/hate relationship with my complexion. Pale girls ’round the world can relate when I say if some girls’ complexions can be categorized as “olive” or “sun kissed”, my natural skin tone would probably be called “winter snow” or “ghost-face milk”.

JSYK: Lies Pop Music Told Me

Pop-Lies-Header

Pop music has the rare ability to build you up, get you dancin’, and make you feel like you can take on the WERLD. But over the years, pop music has made me a lot of promises it has yet to keep, and expectations for life that haven’t really panned out. Dearest pop music: you have lied to me too many times and you will be exposed for your mistruths!!! ***Gets on horse Taylor Swift “Blank Space” style***. read more…

Awesome TV Bedrooms You’re Super Jealous of

shoshhh

Whether it’s numerous hours spent scouring Tumblr, deciding what to wear, or taking naps way longer than the appropriate nap should be, your room plays a vital role in your life. I’d like to make up the fake statistic that 90% of your most un-productive productivity occurs in there. Therefore, it is necessary that it represents just how dang cool you are. But who has the time to maintain a New York loft looking room?? So instead, let’s commemorate the greatest TV bedrooms – since we don’t have to clean and maintain those. read more…

Winter-Boot-Cover-REAL
