The Weekend: 5 Things

This was the first time that I was seeing Mandi since we learned of her engagement so as girls, we just couldn’t stop being excited! It also happened to be her fiance Eric’s birthday as well so it was a double birthday/engagement celebration over in Sausalito at Bar Bocce. It was the perfect day trip getaway for us.

The Hundreds Staff Interview: Alina

Every now and then I come across things on the internet about various people and I’m like “Yeah, cool they have traits like me. We have stuff in common” Then I come across this interview of some girl named Alina who I’ve never heard of in my life and I’m like “This girl IS me.”

We don’t look alike, but I’m pretty sure we’ve got the same vocabulary and that we’re the same person.

Psychology Behind Restaurant Menus

The Atlantic sat down with  FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant author, Arthur Meyer, to discuss how restaurant menus trick us into making us hungrier and more loose with our wallet.

…tee hee author Arthur. I did that on purpose.

Never Liked It Anyway

When a relationship ends, every gift you’ve ever gotten from your ex becomes completely meaningless. Every urge to wear that leftover piece of clothing goes away. Every romantic gift that came with a sweet gesture just makes you rage. You could just toss it all out, or you could get a little something back for it. That’s where “Never Liked It Anyway” comes in. Instead of just dumping everything into the garbage, why not sell it?

There’s never any right way to get over a breakup, but if you haven’t found the solution yet, you might want to give this one a shot.

I don’t feel like trying out the site myself, but I’m curious about what kinds of goods you can get off of it. Readers, care to some digging for us?

The Worst Horoscope I’ve Ever Read

I look forward to reading my horoscope on both a weekly and a monthly basis. I know it’s a silly thing to believe in, but I typically find them to be true…or what happens is that I read it and sometimes convince myself that what my horoscope is telling me is ACTUALLY what’s happening in my life. Raise your hand if you’ve done the same. With all that said, it’s important to just take these things with a grain of salt because at the end of the day, you should remember that someone gets paid to write these. I happened to be on the Nylon blog today where they made a new post for April horoscopes and the Aries horoscope is the worst.

Happy Birthday Ram! Remember, you are not at the beginning of the Zodiac to be any old mountain goat—you are here because you shimmer and catch the sunlight like the Golden Fleece, the catalyst that set all those Argonauts in motion. Of all the colors, I actually associate you with red, and surveys say that irregardless of gender, human beings of all age and stripes are happy to see a woman in bright red lipstick. It’s genetic, it’s animal—Jane Goodall born April 3, one of the foremost Aries primatologists observed that even chimpanzees respond to bright lipstick. Anyway you get the picture, and here’s smiling at you kid.

I read this and thought, okay cool intro, let me click the next page to see my real horoscope, but instead it jumped straight to Taurus. What?! That’s not a horoscope, you’re just giving me random facts and trying to stroke my ego.

Facebook’s “How To” Videos

I can’t believe this is the first time I’m ever seeing these. When I was much younger, I felt like Facebook was so easy to navigate. These days, there are so many different functions and I always find myself second guessing before doing something drastic on the social networking site. I guess that’s somewhat of an overstatement though. I found these videos to be really quirky and cheeky. To view the rest, click here!

Cover of the Day:

This New Yorker cover full of Hillary-themed emojis was too adorable to not post. They’re not as cute as the North West set, but we’d still be pretty happy with this anyways. Designed by artist Barry Blitt, these 30 emojis were designed to model off of some of our favorite emojis currently and some looks that she is known for. My favorite? HOBviously the one with her sunglasses.

Miles Teller on Jimmy Fallon

Miles Teller could possibly be one of my favorite new actors. I mean he’s not that new, actually, but I enjoy him in almost everything that he’s in. I’m still waiting to see Whiplash though and I heard he did a pretty good job in it! Also this appearance on Jimmy Fallon is golden.

Hypnotize

Every Friday, my team has this tradition of playing old skool hip hop jamz in our pod. We call it Hip Hop Fridays. And when I saw this video, I thought it was perfection. Raise your hand if you watched this show after school when you were a child.

In Case You Missed It… Zoolander 2

As we all know, our favorite models Derek and Hansel walked the Valentino runway earlier this week and it wasn’t just a random decision. They are, in fact, making a Zoolander sequel and this was the most perfect way for them to reveal the news. Zoolander 2 is slated to be released February 12, 2016. Can you believe that it will have been 15 years since the first movie was released? I’m so curious now about what my 11-year-old self thought about that film.

And what! They also got to meet Anna Wintour. They really went all out for publicity.
