FYI: Lip Gloss Obsessions

No matter your age (or your place on the *girly girl* spectrum), I believe most girls are addicted to lip gloss. It’s kind of like a nervous twitch – reaching for your lip gloss before you even realize what you’re doing; it’s a constant impulse. Part of it has to do with the fact that there is nothing worse than chapped lips, but another part is the desire to have a constant and perfect sheen present on your pout. Our love for certain lip glosses may evolve, but it will never fade. #FORAFORAVER  read more…

Trend To Try (Maybe): The Fanny Pack

therock

Fanny packs are often associated with lost tourists (e.g. elderly couple from Florida with matching visors) and middle-aged men wanting to keep their wallet away from their booty. Recently, Matthew McConaughey was spotted wearing a fanny pack at the Red Sox game – and when asked about the fanny pack, he adamantly defended it: practicality trumps fashion, especially when you’ve got a lot of random stuff you don’t want to keep in your butt pockets. McConaughey is not the only one to rock the fanny pack… the Rock (lol), Jason Batemen, and Kanye are members of the fanny pack gang. Is the FP trying to make a comeback? Probably. Should it be a thing? Probably not. Here are a few of the best celeb renditions of fanny packs… read more…

FYI: New Denim for Fall

NEW FALL DENIM

As we cross the days off our calendars, and the good times we had the last few months fade into a distant but glorious memory, we must forge ahead and prepare for the inevitable: FALL! I know most people profess their undying devotion to the summer months, but personally, fall is the only season for me. Nothing is better than an Indian summer that allows for your warm and cool weather wardrobe to co-mingle. If you simply can’t get excited about the impending (or maybe at this point it’s just pending?) autumn, then why not get excited about all the cool new denim you can wear this fall! read more…

#WCW: Phoebe Dykstra and Audrey Kitching

Over the summer, we united Internet friends Phoebe Dykstra and Audrey Kitching – and there was AstroTurf, mini golf, and vegan cupcakes involved.

We, more than anyone, know what it means to have a girl crush – or more appropriately, a #WCW (because day-relevant, duh). So when we got word that Audrey was on her way to the 6, we knew that something had to be done to permeate the aforementioned internet friendship into IRL-times. Since we’ve been longtime followers of Audrey ourselves, we were overjoyed at the prospect of a lil visit – and while there are only Phoebe’s joyful squeals caught on camera, trust us when we say that an inspirational GALPAL-POWERED afternoon was enough to trigger even the quietest of us to ~share a gentle smile~ and blow some majestic bubbles at the camera. read more…

blonde-2

Bleachin’ ain’t easy. Like many things in life worth having, it is not easy to attain or keep – and it comes with many strings attached. But after all, it’s just a hair colour and I’m being overly dramatic (as I am about most things). So if you really wanna do it – YOLO!!! Hop on that no-pigment hair train. Just make sure to read this before you do because #useful and #informative read more…

Our (Not Completely Accurate) Fall TV Predictions

Ahh, fall. The leaves are changing colours, you can finally throw your leather jacket over everything, and you still have the mindset that you can join extracurricular activities while maintaining good grades. Not to mention the greatest seasonal perk of all – FALL TV!!! No more settling for Two and a Half Men re-runs (Not that I did that or anything).

What happened to those two irrelevant fictional characters??? Will they end up together?? Will the two lead characters give up all material possessions and begin a life dedicated to worshipping the sun god?? Probably not. So here are some of our not-so-accurate, fall TV predictions… read more…

(Best) Worst One Direction Tattoos

onedirection

When I was growing up, the big tattoo !fads! were Chinese symbols, barbwires, stars, and butterflies – and the aforementioned are now used as a cautionary tale (read: what NOT to get as a tattoo).

Needless to say, Harry Styles definitely didn’t get the memo and neither did the other 1D boys. We’ve seen One Direction grow up in front of our eyes *drool* including all their cringe-worthy tattoos. Here are a few of the (best) worst One Direction tattoos… We still love you tho. read more…
