An Ode to Ezra Koenig's Greatest Selfies

Right up there with snow days and being rewarded with free pizza after an over 30 minute wait, are the selfies of Vampire Weekend’s lead singer, Ezra Koenig. The Instagram aficionado of the band (who basically has the online persona of an 11 year old Japanese girl), is everything you could want in a man. All of his photos manage to have the perfect balance of self-deprecation and irony, and almost /always/ incorporate a strange reflective surface. Here is a comprehensive guide to Ezra Koenig’s greatest selfies.

So EnJoY! yeaaaHH HeeeYYY ~*~ read more…

Flashback Dream Dates

DREAM DATE_edited-1

We all have ‘crush lists’ comprised of -ultimate- dream dudes who live in a happy fantasy land (AKA a compartment in our minds). Residents? Gentlemen like Adam Levine and Ryan Gosling. Activities? Tossing footballs back and forth, jamming out during acoustic sessions, growing beards as we require them to, etc. While these dudes are great and all, there’s another compartment in our minds for another kind of crush: the fictional character crush. These imaginary dudes’ names are scrawled all over our notebooks and, needless to say, they occupy the top spots on our crush list. read more…

Kanye's Happiest Moments #VeryRare

If you’re a fan of Kanye (like myself) then you know that he does not like the press. I mean, when you’re in the public eye (and are subsequently being followed around by people in creepy/non-creepy ways), who would like the press? Not me, that’s 4 sho.

Nonetheless, Kanye is actually a rad guy, and since seeing him happy in public is #veryrare, I’ve put together the most iconic photos of Ye showing his pearly white teeth! I luv U, Yeezy. read more…

Strange Man Buns That Intrigue

Anyone who knows me, knows I know my man buns. I’m kind of particular when it comes to the type of bun a man is sporting. However, I’m easily won over. Sure a perfect, low, artist’s man bun is basically a work of art, but the less than perfect buns out there also deserve a little lovin’. A curiously coiffed man bun inspires intrigue and fills us with wonder, so let’s take our hats off (or rather, their hats off), and applaud the weird man bun and the efforts made by their proprietors. read more…

Flower Beards: A Softer Side To Masculinity

The imagery the word beard conjures is rough, coarse, and rugged. But what happens when you stick flowers into that beard? You have a visually appealing concept that challenges current notions of masculinity – it is the softer side – filled with roses, daisies, leaves, and vines (literally). Who would have thought that facial hair and flowers would fit so seamlessly? Well, these artists did: read more…

Men & Centre Parts: Should they be allowed Y/N?

From Joaquin to Jared, our favourite male celebs have been embracing more adventuresome hairstyles lately – generating a fair share of hair-envy. Though we admire their desire to freshen things up, we have to point out that some hairstyles just aren’t meant to have their time in the spotlight. We’re talking about one of the most controversial: the male centre part. How do we feel guys and gals? Yay or nay? read more…

We’ve all endured hardcore crushes in our lives, and truly, what would we do without boys?

How To: Wear Boy Stuff

Don’t get me wrong; girl fashion is fabulous. Dresses, skirts, heels – all that super fun stuff. BUT there’s just something that’s ~so great~ about menswear. It’s cool, it’s less fussy, AND IT’S MORE COMFORTABLE.
