Alexa Chung’s New Book

Alexa Chung released a photograph of her new cover  and book title today called “It.” Well, it makes sense doesn’t it? She is the HBIC It Girl. So what exactly will we find in this new read? Don’t expect it to be a tell-all or even a memoir. Instead, the book will hold her inspirations such as photographs and drawings. Alexa is quite the style icon so we have no doubts at all that this won’t be a best seller and that young fan girls all over the world won’t be standing in line waiting to purchase it.

Picture Cook: See. Make. Eat

I have barely touched my cook books since Pinterest came along, but it used to be my favorite part of making meals back in college. I stumbled upon this new cook book designed for guys that completely simplifies the process and includes a rainbow of colors! Picture Cook: See. Make. Eat. brings the cooking instructions back down to the basics – just the way guys like it, right? Recipes included range from simple to even more complex meals like lasagna!

A Collection Part 33


Veronica told me just the other day that I was overdue for A Collection post. In looking through my archives, I see that it has only been TWO months. This is actually probably a new record for us. Like many “A Collection” posts, there is no theme. I wish I had something to say about how I’m feeling or why I chose the photographs that I did, but I choose them because at the time it is what is most pleasing to me!

Enjoy!

Christmas Wish List 2012

Every year, I always post a little Yow Yow! Christmas list. I thought I would have more “wants” this year, but I’ve got everything I need! It’s always just fun to have a little list of things that would be nice, but when it comes down to the holidays, good company is all I’m asking for.

Congratulations Style Me Pretty

The wonderful creative minds over at Style Me Pretty have released their book today on bookshelves and I couldn’t be more excited about this news. After all, they are the ones that remind me everyday of love’s existence and how beautiful it can be. I can’t wait to hole myself up in Barnes & Noble and rifle through these pages. Yes, I realize that I could buy this book, but this poor post grad is unable to at the time.

Sad day. Regardless, this is a huge step for the wedding blog and one that I hope I can follow in the same footsteps with Yow Yow!

Razrs

photo cred | Cool Material

Before the iPhone, there was another model that everyone just had to have: the Razr. And where do all good phones go to die? Ebay of course – though I’m not sure why anyone would want to purchase the Razr these days – so outdated.

Kyle Williams found a creative way to bring these phones back to life. After purchasing 44 Razrs off the website, he peeled apart the layers to find old text messages, sexts (yes, even THOSE existed back then too,) pictures, and videos. The material was compiled and published in his new book Razrs.

Note to self? Delete all the memory and data started on my crackberry when I decide to replace it.

Tavi Gevinson Schools Jimmy Fallon on the Bitchface

My teenage fashion icon Tavi Gevinson stopped by Jimmy Fallon earlier this week to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Rookie. During the interview, she also teaches him  how to perfect the bitch face and it is pretty silly. Watch the entire clip here on Late Night!

Book Announcement

Style Me Pretty may not have been the first wedding blog that I ever stumbled upon, but it is, by far, my favorite. Everyday, I visit the blog for ideas, wedding videos, and photographs of real weddings from real people that inspire me to someday have the wedding I’ve always dreamed of. My friends and family have recently asked me to tone down my love for all things wedding inspired in conversation, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to refrain from it here on my blog. …And I won’t.

I am so excited that Abby Larson will be releasing her first book “Style Me Pretty Weddings” and you better believe that when I start planning my own that I will be making this purchase. Check out more details from it here.

Men + Food

I came across two posts today regarding men and their food and rather than making two separate posts, (I’m into efficiency) I decided to combine them into one.

First off, I got both of these inspiration pieces from my favorite MAN blog Cool Material. It’s mostly for men slash just for men actually, but sometimes I think like a dude and can appreciate the things they love as well.

I know I recently took a hiatus from being in the kitchen, but I’m about to start up that work/life balance thing again and I’m going to have to find a way to make meals somehow for myself and for my guests. Also, one word – leftovers. Secondly, this book is called Mad Hungry. That’s hilarious. I want it.

Mad Hungry – $12
