It’s Britney, B*tch
Posted on May 27, 2016.
The 2016 Billboard Music Awards, which aired this past Sunday, gave many Britney Spears fans what they’ve been wanting for a very long time: Miss Britney Spears back on the world stage, slaying. And that’s exactly what she did on Sunday.
Wearing a glittery mix between a leotard and a bikini, and nailing a dance routine that included a stripper pole (would you expect any less from Britney?), Spears delivered with some of our fave hits, like “Toxic,” “Slave 4 U,” and “Work B*tch.”
We’re not sure what we love most about this performance. Her spunky dance routine? How far she’s come from her 2007 meltdown (we’re sure you’ve seen the memes – “If Britney Spears Can Make It Through 2007, You Can Make It Through This Day”)? Our own 90s/early 2000s nostalgia? Or simply wondering what she does to look that toned at 34 years old? We’re thinking… all of the above.
But we didn’t think too deeply about it, because we were too busy cheering on our girl Britney and loving the throwback songs. Long live Queen Britney! She totally slayed, and we loved every second of it.
Shop The Trend!
Posted on May 25, 2016.
As predicted in last fall's Spring Fashion Week 2016, off-the-shoulder tops are all the rage this season. Yep, we saw them in collections ranging from Roberto Cavalli to Proenza Schouler to Louis Vuiton, and they were all completely fabulous. The trend has been brought to life this spring by celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Annalynne McCord, and Lily Aldridge.
These tops are hot right now because like spring, they’re gently revealing, and they’re letting us show a classy hint of skin before summer really hits. Plus, off-the-shoulder tops can be tight and sexy, boho and flowy, or even fancy. The possibilities are endless.
Ready to show off those shoulders? Grab one of the off-the-shoulder tops currently on our racks: our casual Brown Patterned Off The Shoulder Top, our alluring Black Crochet Off The Shoulder Top, or our ooh-la-la Coral Off The Shoulder Top. We promise you won’t go wrong with this rend!
Summer Hair Trends to Try!
Posted on May 20, 2016.
It’s almost summer, it’s getting hot, and you’re ready to switch up your look. The solution? Try a new summer ‘do. It’s the best time of year to experiment with different hairstyles and cuts, as it’s pretty much the best time of year to experiment with anything! Here are some summer styles worth considering:
-The Bob, a la Taylor Swift. Do you see how she switched up her whole vibe by getting a choppy bob? Edgy and sexy, it’s also a convenient way to beat the heat. For you loyal long hair girls, this is the time to give the Bob a try… trust us, your hair will grow back, and you just might absolutely love this style!
-Edgy Layers, a la Kardashians. Kim’s got ‘em, Kendall’s got ‘em, and we think you should try them. We’re not talking Jennifer Aniston style perfectly cut layers. We’re talking slightly uneven, slightly disheveled, super sexy layers. They make for a trendy yet gorgeous look for your mane that’s perfectly summer chic.
-90s Tousled Chic, a la Cindy Crawford. With Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber, leading the pack, the 90s are back in more full force than ever, and who embodies the 90s more than supermodel Cindy Crawford and her famously sexy tousled locks? We can’t think of a better look to start off a red-hot summer!
3 Awesome (& Adventurous) Summer Vacay Destinations
Posted on May 18, 2016.
It’s that glorious time of year when summer is just ahead, and we know we have months of warm weather and good times ahead. That said, if you can take a summer getaway, where would you go? These are our top 3 picks for the ultimate adventurous summer vacation:
-Venice, Italy – This “Floating City” is known for its unique method of transportation: via boat on the many canals of the city, as water has long ago taken over the streets. It’s a unique trip to take, and the weather is usually right in the 70s in the summertime. Don’t forget this place is also world famous for its architecture and its amazing seafood… we’re so there.
-Bali, Indonesia – Made even more famous by the book “Eat, Pray, Love,” this colorful island is filled with culture, art, and many sea creatures not found in any other part of the world. It’s a popular tourist destination, partly due to the many traditional festivals and gatherings that constantly take place in this lovely little island.
-Copacabana, Bolivia – This town rests peacefully right on Lake Titicaca, the largest (and many say most beautiful) lake in South America. Many tourists explore this lake by boat, and take mini-trips to Isla Del Sol, a nearby sacred Inca island. Featuring beautiful basilicas, access to nature, and local celebrations, this would be the perfect, quaint trip to get away from it all.

Selena Gomez & Orlando Bloom: Their Steamy Vegas Night
Posted on May 13, 2016.
Super-popular singer Selena Gomez has a lot going on. For one, she kicked off her Revival World Tour this past Friday in Las Vegas. She threw an after-party at a Vegas nightclub to celebrate an amazing show. Many friends attended, but no guest has captured as much interest as actor Orlando Bloom.
This is because soon after, pictures of the two getting close surfaced online. Yup, take a look at the pics and judge for yourself, but it very much looks like they were caught in an embrace, if not a makeout session. Mind you, Selena is 23 and Orlando is 39, not to mention Orlando is currently dating pop princess Katy Perry. As if this all weren’t enough, Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber, had gotten into an altercation with Orlando in 2014 during a celeb-filled party in Ibiza, a few months after Selena and Orlando were photographed outside of an LA nightclub. Orlando actually punched Biebs in the face during the fight in Ibiza, to the delight of non-Beliebers everywhere.
What to make of all this? Did Selena do this just to make ex Beiber jealous? What does Katy Perry have to say about this? And are Selena and Orlando actually a thing? We’re hoping someone speaks out soon, because we need answers to these questions! PS. How cute would Selena + Orlando be??
Met Gala Fashion Recap
Posted on May 11, 2016.
Last Monday was the annual Met Gala, which, is considered the most fashion-forward night of the year in the celebrity galaxy. And this year had a theme that brought out many futuristic and unique looks: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” Which looks did we love? Read on to find out:
-Emma Stone was a bombshell as usual in a white Prada dress, with a metal corset over it. Her smokey eyes synched perfectly with the corset, for a timeless yet edgy look.
-Taylor Swift has come a long way since her innocent country days, showing up in a metallic reptile print Louis Vuitton Dress with side cut-outs, and heels that laced up to her knees. We also love the new bleached bob she’s been sporting.
-Kristin Stewart paired simply chic with a dash of tech in her silk Chanel dress, which exposed her midriff and featured a front slit. The silver metallic eye makeup brought out the silver detail in the stitching of the dress, definitely embodying the theme of the night.
-Madonna stole the show in a Givenchy Haute Couture bandage piece with lace detail, nipple tape, exposed butt, not to mention a killer diamond headpiece by Neil Lane (but we don’t think anyone was looking at her headpiece).

Summer Concerts You Can’t Miss!
Posted on May 6, 2016.
Summer is obvi festival season, but it’s also the best time of year to go out to a live concert. Which of your favorites are touring this summer? Here’s a quick breakdown… get tickets while you can!
-Beyonce just kicked off her Formation World Tour, and with her controversial album Lemonade just having dropped, this is probably the hottest ticket in town.
-For you Beliebers, Justin Beiber is smack in the middle of his Purpose World Tour. These tickets will go fast (if they’re not gone already) as this little hottie is all grown up, and reportedly putting on a great show.
-If you’re more Team Selena, you’re in luck, because Selena Gomez is coming to a city near you. Singing her old favorites as well as new songs from her latest album Revival, this is definitely one show we have to see.
-Finally, Drake is on the road again! Yes, Drizzy is gracing the world with his Summer Sixteen Tour. We are super psyched to hear him, along with co-headliner Future, blow the stage up. We’ll definitely be there to watch!

The Best of Netflix
Posted on May 4, 2016.
While we all have our favorite shows on TV, many have become mainstream, and maybe even a little boring. Looking for a new Netflix/streaming series to binge on? Look no further! Here are the shows we will be checking out:
- “Chelsea” – If you love Chelsea Handler, then you will be in heaven with this Netflix series, which is a documentary series, Chelsea style. Chelsea devotes each episode to discussing subjects ranging from race to marriage, in her typical provocative style. Yep, it’s time to Chelsea and Chill.
- “Catastrophe” – With typical rom-com series being a little predictable, enter “Catastrophe,” which streams on Amazon Prime. The main characters are put in a hilariously impossible affair, and the results will give you a good belly laugh.
- “Jessica Jones” – Based off of a Marvels superhero character, this Netflix series (starring Krysten Ritter) keeps us entertained as a kick-ass woman trying to figure out life, and struggling with the concept of her superhero alias.
Of Of course, there are many more shows we are dying to get hooked on, but that’s once we get through the above, of course. Happy Netflixing!
