It’s absolutely no secret that I live/breathe/love The O.C. with the fire of approximately one thousand suns and the warmth that comes with cuddling with ~1023 fuzzy Chow Chow puppies. In fact, my dedication runs so deep that Seth Cohen’s existence might as well be synonymous with the oxygen I need to breathe and the caffeine I need to consume in order to be a functional human being – and, if you’ve spent any amount of time with me, I’m sure you could serve as a witness to the #realness of the aforementioned.
While I won’t be sailing away on a boat to Tahiti on my next ~vacay~, I can definitely: 1) take the time to muse about how awesome that would be and 2) admire the sartorial majestic-ness of warm weather outfitting decisions (read: Marissa Cooper’s sundresses and Ryan Atwood’s wife beater tank tops). Plus, paired with an ongoing desire to be on the run/drive in the sun/look out for number one, isn’t it only natural to ~celebrate~ the beginning of spring break with an ODE TO ORANGE COUNTY?! read more…
As 2013 came to a close, I promised myself I would attempt to be more adventurous with my beauty regimen going into the new year. Save for a slight variation in the hues on my cheeks and my lips, I’ve stuck to my current ~look~ for the past few years – never straying from my routine (even when sultry smokey eyes or different-coloured pouts tried to entice me).
However, because I’m all for ~changing it up~ (I AM SO CASUAL), I am going to attempt to articulate the new things I will be doing to my face (and also my hair) over the course of the next 365ish days. If you’re feeling adventurous (like me), maybe you can join in on da face fun?!?! read more…
!!Beard compilation time!!
Now that we’re in ~an entirely different year~ (happy 2014, BTW), it seemed only fair to (specifically/exclusively) reflect on the most important thing that happened to The Internet last year – BE MINE, BEARD ft. our favourite Canadian man wearing the real life beards of other real life (sometimes Canadian) males on his own precious & beautiful face.
From Drake’s pseudo-beard to Adrien Brody’s mop of hair (as a beard), join us as we reflect on Ryan Gosling’s greatest moments as a human beard model. read more…

Given my notorious/celebrated love of hyperlinking, it should be no surprise that it took a lot of self-restraint to not link you to every single awesome thing posted on FORA in 2013. Though this has something to do with the fact that your Internet provider probably can’t handle an endless scroll of 750+ articles (#consideration), it’s mostly accredited to the fact that I have critical thinking/ selective editing skills. Thx design school!!!
Anyway, 2013 was very human-centric; and in between befriending celebrities like Missy Elliott and Chloe Moretz, we hung out with Internet personalities, talked about boys for like 100 hours straight, and then had a lot of photoshoots featuring Liz Trinnear and smoke bombs (respectively).
Yes, needless to say, 2013 was a good year – and we’d like to thank you for fuelling our awesomeness by being generally awesome yourselves. So without further ado, take a trip down ~memory lane~ with us, and peruse the top 13 things that happened on FORA this year!
**If u need to shed tears while reading this post then I give u full permission because I certainly did (shed da tears) and waoow waow so many emotions I love y’all** read more…
Meet Anna Lunoe: vocalist, producer, and our ladycrush of the moment. By way of Australia, she’s taken the music (and general) world by storm – creating fashion show music for Chanel, Fendi, Prada, and Louis Vuitton, and being generally awesome at everything she does. Most recently, she wrapped a tour with The Weeknd and released a music video for her single Breathe – because #Canada and also respiratory functions(!!!)
Being the lucky folk that we are, we had the chance to chat with Anna about pant designs and alien invasions – putting her drawing/penmanship skills to the test and also building the foundation for a wonderful and beautiful friendship (based on fancy pants, of course!) read more…

1. If you’re as keen/fierce/fabulous as we are, maybe your spirit animal is the panther. After all, ankle straps on ur shoes have never been more socially acceptable!
2. Lolz *block*.
3. My favourite past-time is super-imposing the beards of other men on Ryan Gosling’s face – and this month’s instalment of BE MINE, BEARD featuring Gerard Butler is no exception.
4. It’s been said that humans often resemble their pets – so we pseudo-tested that theory by Photoshopping cute boys with their puppy-dopplegangers. If you’re doubtful – don’t be. This post is very important.
1. Apparently we’re better than Beyonce. Who knew?
2. We are looking for interns. Apply within.
3. Miley Cyrus recruited a sad cat for her AMA performance and we wrote (him? her?) a letter.
4. We talked to blogger/DJ/all around awesome human Bip Ling about kittens. Because why not?

Considering the fact that I am a dedicated Miley Cyrus supporter, you’ve got to understand that admitting that I didn’t watch the AMA’s in ~real-time~ on Sunday night is pretty shameful. Nonetheless, the first thing I did upon regaining consciousness Monday morning was whipping my laptop open so I could catch up on all ~the most~ important performances; including (but not limited to) that cool thing Jennifer Lopez did(???) and also Miley Cyrus’ kitty-centric/purrfect (lame pun) rendition of Wrecking Ball. Duh.
With that said, more than 48 hours later, I still have a few “immediate” opinions on the aforementioned performance that I’d like to bring to the forefront of this morning’s conversation. These opinions mostly revolve around *~#emotions#~*, but then again, what else is new? read more…
Do you want to join the MTV family and become our new BFF? Good. Because it’s that time of year again: we’re on the hunt for the c00lest interns around! Leave preconceived notions of typical fashion internships at the front door, because here at FORA, you won’t be doing any coffee runs or dry cleaning pickups. No. You’ll only be doing fun and fabulous things that sometimes involve befriending Missy Elliott (but mostly involve creating and publishing fresh and exciting content!)
Also, sometimes, we’ll do the coffee run for you (if we’re in a good mood). read more…

1. We’ve all come to the communal consensus that having a man bun is serious criteria for the next guy we date.
2. Just when we thought Victoria’s Secret Angel babes couldn’t get any babelier…this happened.
3. Lady Gaga’s wardrobe is approximately 200x bigger than my apartment, so here’s a comprehensive guide to outfits she’s worn over the past 3 months. In infographic form, obvi.
4. If you’re an inherently awkward person, you might want to consider investing in some statement jewelry to aid you in your social endeavours.
