WITH TONYA | Making & Breaking All The Rules
We really don’t think of Tonya as a rule-maker as much as a rule-breaker, to be honest. But in her newest 'The Thing About Beauty Is…' entry over at Feminine Collective she’s rounded up a gang of new beauty rules to bend, break or follow at 30, 40, 50 and 60. Rules might be made to be broken but these are worth reading, too. Check it out.
RIGHT NOW | Getting Bombed
We’re really feeling all of these takes on the classic MA-1 bomber jacket and new graphic takes on classic varsity jackets right now.
TGIF | Yaaasss!
LISTEN UP | The Original Purple Rain
5 SOMEWHERE | Purple Rain
With the release of the first new Prince album in ages, we thought it was the perfect time to pay a little tribute to one of our all-time favorite Prince moments: Purple Rain. With cocktails, of course.
Whip up a few of these drinks that would look right at home at Paisley Park, pop in some throwback Prince with the Revolution, including Sheila E, Vanity, Appolonia and all the rest. Then party like it’s… … Well, you get the rest.
LISTEN UP | Tune-Yards
The trippy video for the Tune-Yards’ newest release, ‘Real Thing’, pits lead vocalist, Merrill Garbus, against robotic mannequins and packing peanuts.
RIGHT NOW | Just Smile
Fashion that’ll definitely make you smile, Smiley-the happiest brand ever-just launched their new collection that ranges from tees to hoodies and even cashmere.
Even though they seem like they’ve been around forever, the first Smiley icons appeared online just back in 1997. In 2001 the first Smiley dictionary was placed online, associating 1000 Smiley icons to emoticons. There are now over 2000 different icons in this dictionary with more being added every day. Smiley is more than an icon, brand and lifestyle; it’s a spirit and a philosophy and exists to remind people of how powerful a smile is and how much a simple smiley can change both your life and the lives of others around you.
Check out all of this happiness over at Smiley and…um…smile.
WITH LESLIE | Now, Close
