flywheel never coast

Hold onto your hamstrings; it’s the giveaway I know many of you have been waiting for. That’s right: Flywheel Sports 5-packs. If you know me, you know I’ve been in a committed relationship with the indoor cycling studio for the last two+ years. Sure, I go on dates with other workouts, but no matter what, this […]

smu

Who’s ready for a beach vacay?! (That should be everyone.) Sun, sand, relaxing, day drinking, and humblebrag hashtags. Ahhhh…. Today’s giveaway is a must-have for a trip to the tropics (or the Florida panhandle, whichever). It’s a perfect coverup courtesy of South Moon Under, which if you weren’t aware, is my favorite store in the […]

spotify playlist

I had just broken things off with my long-distance, on-again-off-again boyfriend and was driving 7 hours back to Atlanta on a good 45 minutes of sleep (when you know you’re having “the talk” in the morning, it doesn’t make for the best shut-eye). In other words, I was thisclose to dousing myself in gasoline at […]

kendra scott jewelry

Bling, bling bishes! Time to give away sparkly things courtesy of Kendra Scott. If you have Instagram or read magazines, you may know this jewelry line because it seems like every stylish lady and her mother have been rocking the colorful, quality gems lately. I got my first pair of earrings a few weeks ago and […]

gisele harry josh

Gals who have hair, get ready: This one is a doozy. First of all, if you’re not familiar with celebrity stylist Harry Josh, he does Gisele’s hair, Rose Byrne’s hair, and many other models/actress locks you’ve lusted for. He recently developed his own hair tools, which includes a blow dryer (review to come on that […]

urban decay lipstick revolution

Hollaaaaa! It’s W+P’s second anniversary, which means giveaways alllll week long. The first one had to be from one of my favorite makeup brands, Urban Decay. If you don’t remember the post about UD’s game-changing Revolution lipstick, either read it, or just know that this stuff is the real deal–creamy, hydrating, highly pigmented, long-lasting, and with […]

party llama

This GENIUS Vine video has been making the Internet rounds with good reason. Has there ever been a more incredible combo than DMX and a llama? NOPE. Also, they’re my favorite animal. Party up, y’all. LYLAS, Ashley 

beyonce at coachella

Hello, music friends. This old man attended the famous Coachella Music Festival last weekend and would like to report back to you about my magical experience. Overall, meh. Sure there are 17,000 bands and DJs splattered over a bushel of stages consuming the Empire Polo Grounds, but it’s not all horses and roses. Aside from […]

a town sublime donuts

Not only is it Easter weekend, but it’s #FlashbackFriday, so I wanted to grace you guys with this gem of my brother and me. Easter must have also fallen on 4.20 back in 1990 because that bunny is clearly stoned. Before we jump into the weekend agenda, let’s take a look at the… SELFIE OF THE […]

little engine that literally cant even

Girls these days JUST CAN’T. Sometimes we can’t even, sometimes we CAN NOT and other times, we are literally dying. We often ask “Is this real life?”, realize our lives are totally F’d (#FML), or simply have to say “stop” (or use this Emoji). But lots of people (namely males) don’t understand why girls just […]

Kim Zolciak Teams Up with Mama Walker's Breakfast Inspired Liqueurs To Celebrate National Breakfast For Dinner Day

Yesterday, a driver who looked like a retired mob boss (name: “Bill Brown”) picked me up in a black car and drove me to Kim Zolciak’s house to drink and have breakfast for dinner with her and a handful of other media folks. Is this real life? The most famed Bravo hair housewife (in my […]

yoga couples retreat

Last week, I went to the Lunch Crunch class at my yoga studio, which is a 60-minute power session in the torture chamber extra hot room. This class is a doozy, and it’s only an hour because if it were any longer, it would be considered human cruelty. I set up my mat, and since […]

stic healthy is the new gangsta

Plenty of celebs eat healthy and brag talk about it, but if the average person ate the way Gwyneth Paltrow does, he/she should would be broke and hangry. Which is why I absolutely love this article I just stumbled upon (originally published in October), “7 Ways to Eat Good on a Hood Budget” by Stic […]

drake jimmy kimmel

Who doesn’t love Drake? He has the most dazzling smile in Hollywood (maybe the world), is talented, funny, AND is dating Rihanna, which is a big F YOU to Chris Brown. For that last reason alone, he’s America’s (male) sweetheart. In this video, he goes undercover for Jimmy Kimmel to ask people what they think […]

yoga kiss

You guys, I hate being hot. Don’t get me wrong—I love the beach, patio drinking (duh), and frolicking in the sunshine, but I loathe being sweaty, swamp ass-y, shiny-faced, frizzy-haired, and swollen. Also, sometimes when I get too hot, I almost pass out. One time I was in the shower with my ex and things […]

stackable tiffany rings

Oh, the push present. Chances are, you either just smiled fondly at the thought of (or looked down at) your very own, exaggeratedly rolled your eyes and/or gagged, or wondered WTF this thing is. For you latter folks, I’ll let Wiki inform you: A push present (also known as a push gift, baby mama gift or baby bauble) is a present a father […]

journelle bras and panties

Neutral-colored brassieres and undies in the spring/summer? No thanks. The sun is shining bright and our lovely lady lumps should be shining brighter. What? Let it be known (everyone already knows) that I love to show my bra. Not in a slutty, side-boob, DTF kinda’ way, but in a subtle, sheer-shirt-with-bright-or-black-bra-underneath fashion. We are all […]

sam-smith-sxsw-2014-650b

In a day when an obnoxious girl talking about #selfies over EDM constitutes as music and that painful song from Frozen plays on the radio 3 billion times a day (seriously, my ears bleed), it’s refreshing to discover new, talented artists and quality tunes. Here are three smooth dudes you need to get up in […]

sex and the city cupcakes

Most girls, no matter how thin, have an inner fat kid who comes out on special occasions (read: when certain foods are presented to her). Here they are. 5. Cheese dip and chips. Walk into a Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurant during happy hour/dinner and you’re guaranteed to see approximately 874 groups of girls. And it ain’t because […]

I-have-a-secret-gossip-girl-11597744-484-500

There is ONE thing all naturally beautiful, youthful-looking women swear by and it’s not an expensive serum, diet, exercise regime, or plastic surgeon. This magical secret is…drumroll please…have you guessed it yet?…wait for it… WATER. I know what you’re thinking. #NoBrainer, right? But when I say water, I mean LOTS of it. I got an […]

Monica-with-friz-hair

It’s summer…and your hair knows it. Guest blogger Hayden of Pretty In My Pocket is back at it, telling us the best products to keep our hair as smooth as a Justin Timberlake tune when humidity is high (because that Friends episode still haunts us ladies who have potential for frizzy situations…) Summer boosts several […]

margarita_on_the_beach

Ladies: If you had to choose between vodka and being skinny, which would you pick? Ohmygod, totally kidding. I would never ask you to answer an impossible question like that! Which brings me to my  first featured Low-Cal Vodka Cocktail (LCVC).  It was unveiled to me last week at the W Midtown (also the night […]
