Remember when this was an acceptable pool float? LOL Showing up to a pool party with one of those busted yoga mats these days is like a dude breaking out a Samsung flip phone to get a girl’s number. Sure it can be endearing (ish?), but bottom line: NOPE. Just like mobile phones, workout classes, […]

Consideration provided by Target. In life, we have both basics and statements. Basics are the girls posting cleavage pics on Instagram disguised as coffee-drinking selfies while statement girls are off doing cool sh*t and not worrying about which filter makes them look the most like a Kardashian. And in fashion we also have basics and […]

Consideration was provided by Target. Let’s take a look at all-white wearing through the years… I mean, is there anything hotter than white clothing on bronze skin? NOPE. Add gold jewelry into that mix and hello, SUMMER SEXY ALERT. Once my skin hits a top-tier tan, I can’t get enough white in my wardrobe—I wear […]

First of all, we shouldn’t be getting sunburn. It’s not cute and it increases your risk of skin cancer by like, a million. But sometimes it happens (even to me, as judgey as I am about it). If you’re out in the sun, I say always wear SPF 30 or higher (YOU CAN STILL TAN […]

Summer means fun and sun, tanks and tans, beach and boys, pedis and pina coladas, bronzes and blackouts (what?). But also: Sweaty armpits. Bummer. The good news is: Deodorant. Here are the best sticks for dry pits (and a spray) whether you’re a sweaty sister or heated hippie chick.   Serious Sweater You can always […]

Consideration was provided by Target On the nightmare scale, swimsuit shopping is right up there with being trapped inside the DMV with all of your exes and their new girlfriends and Nickelback’s Greatest Hits is on repeat. Hold on, I need a minute to erase that horrific image from my memory. Ok I’m back. But […]

This summer’s gonna’ hurt like a mutha fucker. What? Adam Levine said it, not me! That song (while not my absolute fave, but good enough for #FunInTheSun) kicks off this doozy of a playlist where you can also find a hard-hitting dose of Zedd, Twenty One Pilots, David Guetta, Jason Derulo (the new jam with […]

Summer concert/festival season is here as you can tell by the flower crowns on Instagram and slackers trying to get last-minute tickets to shit on Facebook. But forget about Shaky Knees, Hangout Fest, and Lollapalooza because these six concerts in Atlanta and beyond are all you need to make your summer literally the best three […]

Consideration was provided by Target. If there’s one love affair that’s been a constant for me since high school, it’s Target. (Sorry Chick-fil-a, maybe if you were open on Sundays…). I go to Target for everything from swimsuits to soap, cards to K-cups, trail mix to toilet paper, but I’ve never really gone HAM in […]

Oh Coachella. AKA Fashion Week in the desert. Does anyone even care about the bands or is every girl just trying to show off her #StreetStyle in hopes of getting captured for some Internet blog because she wore platform sandals, a fringe romper, flower crown, and 16 metric tons of jewelry in the desert? Let […]

Consideration was provided by Target. ALL HAIL TARGET’S SWIM COLLECTION. (Can I get an amen?) I can’t remember a summer in the last decade that I haven’t gotten a swimsuit from the world’s greatest department store/heaven. I splurge on expensive/designer suits from time to time, but I still always find a perfect bikini from Target […]

Compensation was provided by Jergens®. Can we talk about this winter? It has been worse than having 1% cell phone battery in the DMV while Nickelback is playing and there’s a baby screaming and your ex-boyfriend is there with his new girlfriend who just so happens to be Margot Robbie. In other words: THE WORST […]

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 […]

Every summer, I go to Dewey Beach (the happiest place on Earth) for a week, and by Day 5, I am a zombie version of myself from all the partying. I somehow make it through the week, but then I need another full week to recover and a full month to get my body back […]

OF COURSE I WATCHED THIS TRAINWRECK, HAVE WE MET? A bunch of hot, desperate singles who I kinda’ feel like I already know because I’ve been watching this damn show for a decade (FML) and they’re in my homeland(ish) of Mexico!? Set the DVR and pass me the guac. There was one really strong moment […]

There are few things in life I love more than vodka, coconut, and the beach. Actually, maybe zero things. So when I discovered Pinnacle’s coconut vodka on my way TO THE BEACH, I flipped the F*CK out. After the liquor store employees tranquilized me and I recovered, I got my alcoholic creative juices flowing and […]

How the FACK is it mid-summer? I feel like Snowpocalypse was just like, last week. This has potential to be the best summer ever because: 1) It’s cooler than hot-as-balls years past, but hasn’t rained every day like last year (the WORST). 2) Killer restaurants (and more importantly, patios) continue to open and lure us in. […]

Welcome to HELL, everyone. Sorry, I mean summer. (Same temperature; I get confused.) A few weeks ago I was sitting outside with a guy friend and without even skipping a beat in conversation, grabbed a napkin and put it down my shirt to wipe my boob sweat. Thank God he was just a friend, but […]

Ok Summer 2014, I see you with all these good tunes! From I.G.G.Y to Capital Cities to Lorde to Fitz to Zedd to Hozier to the killer party anthem by Charli XCX (you know the one, from Fault in Our Stars), we’re all set for the beach, pool, gym, and dancing around naked in our homes […]

You guys, I’ve tried a whole lotta’ beauty products; I’ve praised many, I’ve dissed others, and I’ve chosen not to write about some. I actually had an incident recently when a company sent me a pricier product and kept stalking asking me about when the post was going up. I finally had to say, “Listen, I […]

There are stupid/impractical/heinous fashion trends for women all the time (see: the ’90s), but that’s what being female is all about. However, when outlandish styles surface for men, they must be addressed. I have my opinions (OBVI), but I called in our resident dude-bestie-blogger Trey to give his compelling insight into some of these confusing new clothing […]

In April, Nair flew me to NYC to shoot a series of “summer style and beauty video vignettes” and I wasn’t exactly sure what it entailed, but a few days before the shoot I received this in an email: “Are you comfortable in a swimsuit on camera?” I’m sorry, what? Did you say swimsuit? On […]

Dear dry shampoo, How do you know me so well? How do you know that it will be Thursday night and I’m planning to work out, shower quickly at the gym sans hair washing, then grab a quick, casual bite with girlfriends and go home, but then I’ll have a couple glasses of wine at […]

I went into The Fault in Our Stars like most girls go into their period week: You know you’ll get emotional, you know you’re going to cry, you know you’ll need some M&Ms, and you know it will be over soon enough. I will admit it was the most I’ve ever cried in a movie, even […]
