It’s Almost Sunday!

I don’t know about all of you, but we’re getting incredibly excited for the Super Bowl on Sunday! To get all of you on the same level, here is Marshawn’s press conference with Skittles. I just feel so bad for how much he gets fined. Won’t everyone just leave him alone and let him be him?

Edited Photo of the Day

I can’t get enough of this. To celebrate the Seahawks win yesterday, Michael Bennett hijjacked a police officer’s bicycle and took a ride around the field on it. This is one happy guy.

Here’s the original below, but we obviously love the version above more.

Golden Globes 2015 Highlights

I may have missed the awards show, but I did get to catch Gina Rodriguez winning her Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin and it was amazing! I had heard that her speech was one of the best and lucky for me, it just happened to be the one I caught before I left. I also heard that George Clooney gave a great speech as well which I caught yesterday. Since they were the two that stood out to me the most, I thought that it would make sense to share them again with you all here just in case you missed it! Also, if you haven’t had a chance to watch Jane the Virgin yet, you should! CW made a great decision in picking that series up.

Just in case you missed Saturday’s game, here are the only GIFs worth watching that will tell you all you need to know about our game against the Panthers:

This… and then this incredible 90-yard run. Kam Bam, you had quite the game on Saturday and now I’m even more excited for us to go against the Packers!

Golden Globes 2015 Menu

I can’t believe how much I love and enjoy watching the E! Red Carpet. I have so many favorite looks already and I’m looking forward to sharing all of that tomorrow! However, in the meantime – award show season is always so fascinating to me. I like knowing about the menu, the goodie bags, the behind the scenes stuff we never get to see on live televsion and that’s why we make separate posts for all of that stuff too.

Here’s what the attendees are eating tonight:

Tiffany & Co. Support Same-Sex Marriage w/ New Ad

Tiffany’s is coming out strong in support for same-sex marriage with their newly released advertisement. This is the first time for Tiffany & Co. to ever feature a same sex couple in one of their ad campaigns and it is speaking volumes with the community.

The new campaign, shot by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, showcases seven scenes of couples at different stages of their relationships, with a few twists.

One scene features a same-sex couple about to commit to marriage. The pair, shown sitting on a stoop in New York City, are a real couple, not models, according to a Tiffany spokesperson. Another photo shows a couple getting married with their child at their side.

The photos are a celebration of modern love, creating scenes that show love comes in a variety of forms, spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

“Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms,” spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

I have yet to see the other ads that are part of this campaign, but this one is definitely getting the most buzz around the internet currently!

True Story

This is the first time I’m ever seeing this trailer or hearing anything about this film and when I first saw that screenshot, I really had no idea what would be ahead. This feels like a different film entirely for James Franco and Jonah Hill and I’m a little bit excited about it.

RIP Stuart Scott

We had no idea that the passing of Stuart Scott would be happening as I was writing and editing my post about grieving last night. I didn’t spend a lot of time on ESPN personally, but I did because of Kevin and Stuart Scott’s voice is one that I won’t ever forget. Our prayers go out to his family and the ESPN community during this difficult time. He was 49 years old.

How Korean Couples Do PDA

New Year’s Eve is totally a couples holiday, right? I’ve never met a person who was single at the time of New Year’s Eve who has told me that they have loved the holiday. So while it’s New Year’s Eve and all, this post is the most fitting. Americans have varying levels of PDA. Some people are comfortable with it and some people just won’t even go there. Maybe there’s a few people that take it to the extremes too and for those, we like to take pictures and post them because we think it’s funny. In South Korea, you won’t see a lot of the American style PDA that we know of – the kissing and the making out, etc. Instead, you’ll see couples dressing alike to show their affection. In America, sometimes this happens by coincidence, but in South Korea, it’s on purpose. I’m sure to the outside world, it’s a little strange, but I find it to be quite endearing. I don’t think I would ever feel comfortable doing that here in the states, personally, but it’s pretty cute to see a different version of PDA around the world.

Favorites of 2014

Favorite Style Icon: Lily Aldridge

Lily is a style icon both on the runway and on the red carpet. This year, we really got to see her show up at a lot of events dressed to perfection. She was featured in our “Snaps for a Snapshots” several times in 2014 so even by the numbers alone, she beats everyone else. We’re looking forward to seeing more of her in 2015 and someday taking over the head angel slot when Adriana and Alessandra retire.

Runner up: Jamie Chung
