iphone hack

We’ve all been there–at a music festival, football game, Beyonce concert, porn convention, etc. and because there are LITERALLY A BILLION PEOPLE all trying to text/Facebook/Snapchat/Tinder at the same time, your phone shits the bed. Well actually it’s the provider/signal shitting the bed, but you know you’re blaming your phone like, “OMG I like, can’t […]

pinnacle fall 2

Yeah yeah yeah, spring and summer are legit, but let’s be honest—fall is the best season because dudes have NFL, NCAA, and fantasy football, and chicks have EVERYTHING WE LIVE FOR. Am I wearing leggings and UGG slippers as I type this? I mean, does Obama drink lattes? Here are ten reasons to raise a glass […]

pumpkin headphones

I loved my summer 2K14 playlist so much, I wondered if I’d ever be able to top it. WELL. Thanks to Spotify’s killer music browsing abilities, a little Flywheel instructor stalking (read: Cara Weaver), all the talented music makers out right now, and my own penchant for playlisting, I may have just done it. There […]

high -waisted

If you’ve been to a music festival/outdoor concert recently, you have 100% been exposed to the trend/epidemic sweeping the female nation: High-waisted jorts. Girls of all ages, body types, booty types, and textual orientations have been rocking these denim doozies with crop tops, fake flower crowns, and leather boots in 3,000-degree weather because fashion. At […]

j lo booty video

Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty” video is out, and I didn’t think this was possible, but it has MORE ASS THAN THE “ANACONDA” VIDEO. There are no pineapples spinning on record players, pink hand weights, or Drake’s boner; just J. Lo and I.G.G.Y’s ass cheeks, a lot of lube (plus EOS lip balm because product placement?), and a […]

chuice cover phtoos

A while ago, I wrote about Chuice–a ridiculously healthy raw food/drink that completely changed my life and body way back in October 2011. I drank it nearly every day for two years and even froze that ish and brought it to Europe with me in 2012 because there was no way I could go 10 […]

anaconda parody 2

Y’all know how I feel about Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video (and her desperate antics in general). And that horrendous song–every time it comes on the radio, I turn the station. It has become Nickelback to me. This parody by Bart Baker give zero fucks about dissing the song, video, Nicki’s talents, and that fat ass. […]

vintage beauty ad

There are 93874298374893274 beauty products on the market today (give or take), but many of those will be gone in a year, into the #BeautyFail abyss. Yet some have been around since before your mom started wearing rouge and are still popular as ever because well, they work. Here are ten old-school classics that have […]

miss america miss new york

I’m just going to say it. It kinda’ blows my mind that beauty pageants still exist in 2014. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that females choose to dedicate their formative years to participating in contests where they are judged on how they look in bikinis and prom dresses, average […]

FOMO was setting in hardcore this week for fashion/celebrity/NYC enthusiasts who weren’t at Fashion Week (and even for those who were but didn’t have A-lister access). Lucky for us: Instagram. In case you weren’t sitting next to Rihanna at Alexander Wang or backstage primping with Karlie Kloss, take a look and feel like you were […]

sts 2

Peace up, A-town down, shawty! What? Sorry. I got excited because it’s been a minute since my last A List and I can’t wait to share some things going down in our glorious city from food to beauty to BALLS. Now that I have your attention… Bring Me Back Something French Krog Street Market, Ponce […]

tiger cub playing with dog

Sorry for yelling. That’s the first time I’ve all-capped a title….but it probably won’t be the last. I cannot stop watching this video (you may have already seen it because it’s old and has 3 million views but whatever). For the record, if I had a tiger cub in my apartment right now jumping from […]

banana hammock

After years of waiting, I’ve finally found THE ONE. Obviously I’m talking about a blender. The Blendtec Designer 725 (AKA WildSide) is literally the smartest and most advanced home blender in the world (not mention attractive), so falling in love was easy. It has a 1725 watt motor–the most powerful in residential blending, so it reduces […]

kimono

I refuse to say sayonara to summer until September 22, but that doesn’t mean I’m not pumped for fall fashion (read: wearing leggings six days a week, what?). But there is one item I’m especially excited to flip the script on: The kimono. I wore them over my swimsuits this summer (whilst mixing vodka dranks on the […]

basic cake

There’s been a lot of talk about being “basic” lately, specifically being a “basic bitch.” I read the Buzzfeed article “25 Things All Basic White Girls Do in the Fall” and well, I thought it was dumb as f*ck. I mean, did you just copy this from some “shit girls like” list and put “basic and […]

gisele under armour

I just watched Gisele’s Under Armour commercial and cried. Definitely never thought I would write that sentence. I’m not a celebrity by any stretch, but with this blog, I put myself, my opinions, and my actions out into the world for public scrutiny, and I have received more meant comments than I can count (“You’re […]

dewey beach sunset

Did you read Part 1 and Part 2? Rob did bring me a coffee (because he values his life), and in an attempt to make up for the abandonment, he had Dewey written on the cup, which is not only the name of my dog (who you may know from Instagram), but also our next […]

washington dc

(In case you missed Part 1) I begrudgingly left the Best Place on Earth and Rob put me in charge of finding food in Asheville (THE PRESSURE). After pretending to look up restaurants on my phone for 10 minutes but really just scrolling Instagram, I quickly crowd-sourced my Facebook friends and received a few glowing recommendations […]

hotel domestique

Remember when I went on that road trip from Atlanta to NYC with my friend Rob and I was all “OMG it’s going to be amazing,” and you guys were secretly thinking, “OMG that dude is going to kick her out of the car before they hit North Carolina”? Yeah, that one. Well thankfully I […]

watermelon drink

It’s Labor Day weekend but it feels like St. Patrick’s Day was yesterday (WTF). It’s time to squeeze in all the things you planned on doing this summer but didn’t get around to like traveling the world and getting six-pack abs. What? Or just (attempt to) get a tan and eat seasonal foods. Which brings me to […]

iphone6angle

I’m not one to get all wound out about the latest technology (I would never wait hours in line for an electronic, that’s for sure), but the iPhone 6 has given me a bit of a lady boner. First, let’s take a look at the evolution of the iPhone with this fancy infographic from uSell: […]

couple_in_bed_laughing__medium_4x3

You know the feeling: You wake up and want to simultaneously do cartwheels, call your BFFs, and Gorilla Glue yourself to the warm body next to you so you’ll never EVER have be apart. But chances are you’ll nix the acrobatics, settle for a quick Emoji update on the group text (eggplant + heart + smiling […]
