10 (Kinda) Healthy Snax 4 ~SUMMER~

FYI: Not Your Average Tees

For days when t-shirts of the off-white variety aren’t invigorating enough, Miley’s tongue, fluffy sunset clouds, and studly Channing Tatum(s) have got yer back by way of Clashist. Whether it be for concerts, dropping off your dry cleaning, or celebrating the end of the school year – we’re (almost) always looking for an excuse to adorn our body with an explosion of prints. read more…

MIXTAPE: An Intro to Psych Rock

There is a psychedelic rock revival on the rise. You can find it on music blogs, or hear it at live shows: a sound that harkens back to open-air acoustic sets and that 1960s notion that Tomorrow Never Knows. While the Beatles started it, and Jimi as the ultimate psychedelic dandy drew us in, today’s acts allow the sound to live on one fuzzbox at a time. Consider this your personal guide to who’s who in the revival of eclectic guitar laced with non western mysticism. Call it neo-psych, nu psych, or contemporary psychedelia; with songs like “Marshmellow Yellow” it’s all a haze – a purple haze. read more…

Stealin’ Ur Mom’s Jeans

There was a time when everyone was glad to wave goodbye to mom jeans forever. They became known as a fashion faux pas and even inspired an SNL skit (scroll down to very bottom!) after the ’80s denim reign ended. But to everyone’s surprise, they made a comeback. So run to your mom’s closet and dig out those mom jeans because they ain’t going away. read more…

FYI: Lessons From My Prom

Way back when in the old days (jk, last year) I went to prom and some very clear “I wish I would have __________” lessons were established. Everyone tells you to take lots of pictures, wear a corsage, and dance to early 2000s Bey, but there are a few other tips I wish I’d known. Although many things have changed since *2013* (like how ombre hair is no longer worn by everyone), much is the same. Something will probably go terribly wrong during your getting-ready process, the DJ might not get around to playing the best song ever that you requested, and your date might be MIA by 11 pm. Regardless, prom is your last official high school bash, and these lessons will help you make it memorable in a good way. read more…

Last week we were optimistic. “Baii baii winter!” we said, with a swoosh of our non-mitted hand. “See u later, alligator!” we said, as we shoved all our woollen coats to the back of our over-stuffed closets.

Well, sometimes mother nature likes to pull tricks on us, and our toques were once again affixed to our heads as we were confronted with snow, rain, and ~*winter winds*~. Regardless, even though we’re crying on the inside, these ladies and gents are lookin’ good on the outside – so maybe that’s all that matters? read more…
