Made in America 2015

Whoo! Not bad… I still remember watching the Made In America documentary last year and really enjoying it. An immense amount of work goes into creating a music festival and all of the little details are hidden so well from people that just attend and have no idea what goes on behind the scenes.

Cupcakes and Cashmere Unveils Clothing Line

This morning, one of my favorite bloggers – Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere – revealed some very big news! She’s on the verge of launching her very first clothing line that will be sold at Nordstrom and ShopBop! I’ve been admiring Emily’s style for years and have been following her blog for longer than I’ve even had Yow Yow! Emily paved the way as one of the first notable bloggers and has made Cupcakes and Cashmere something more than just about fashion. In addition to featuring her style, she has discussed recipes, decor, career advice, and lifestyle tips. Some of the more important posts that I can still remember as being my favorites are the ones that have a huge impact on her life like getting married and starting a family with her husband. In the blogging world, Emily is kind of a role model for me so I’m very excited for this news and any news that is to come! Here’s a sneak peak at some of the pieces we can look forward to on July 6th for her Fall 2015 line.

Instagram’s Redesign

Instagram's Redesign

Oh my goodness, Instagram rolled out a redesign of user profiles this week and it is gorgeous. I love how clean and simplified everything looks like now along with the rounded profile pictures which are popping up everywhere! This is a huge upgrade from what it looked like before because now the photos are larger and more of a focus. It’s funny how excited I got about this, but I think a lot of that excitement has come from me working in tech now.

Ingrid Nilsen Makes An Announcement

Oh my goodness, Ingrid Nilsen is one of my favorite video bloggers. I’ve been watching her videos for the last year and I’ve enjoyed her quirky personality and sense of humor. She also is just such a great role model, but today even moreso because she released a video that was the most important video that she has ever released and the most vulnerable we’ve ever seen her. She came out. And it was emotional and beautiful at the same time. Totally not ashamed to say that I cried mini tears when I saw her crying as well. Ingrid – so proud of you! This is HUGE and welcome to this new chapter of your life!

Also for reference on what some of videos are usually like, watch below!

Introducing: Mandi

11057614_10206308659898142_5219544384709420603_n

At the end of last month I tweeted out a teaser that someone very special to me would be joining Yow Yow! for the next year… Readers, I am thrilled to announce that my Bay Area bestie, Mandi, who is newly-engaged, has invited us to join the ride on her wedding planning adventures! As many of you know, I’ve been running Yow Yow! for the last six and a half years and this blog is kind of like my baby so it’s a big deal when I get to invite my friends to write on my blog. Honestly though, I’ve never had any worries and it’s really special to be able to share this experience with friends that are closest to me.

Mandi and I had a ton of mutual friends in college and crossed paths several times through being involved at Seattle University, but were never super close until we both moved to the Bay Area within a couple of months of each other. Since then, her and I have been getting acquainted with our new home and trying our best to explore the city as much as we can! Oh yeah, I’m third-wheeling it with her and her fiance Eric!

As you can imagine, the wedding planning process is extensive and there’s a lot that her and I will be able to talk about on Yow Yow! Together, we’ve come up with a list of topics and I’ve basically given her Wednesdays to be her “Wedding Wednesday” platform since “Wedding Mondays” is already taken. However, we’re both still in the planning process so please don’t expect a post every Wednesday for now because we’d just rather underpromise than over. Tomorrow will be her first post though and we’re both extremely excited! Readers, please extend a very warm welcome to Mandi! She’s going to be here for awhile. ;)

Field Trip Festival

This isn’t the most amazing lineup I’ve seen, but it’s good for a new festival. We’re mostly featuring this because this poster is too cute and this festival just happened this past weekend.

Band of Outsiders Closes Their Storefront

After 9 months since they opened their doors, we are deeply saddened to announce that Band of Outsiders is closing up shop – their storefront at least! There has been even more sad news swirling for weeks that they’ve cancelled their fall wholesale orders and laid off a chunk of their staff so this isn’t super surprising to hear. We hope that this is the end of the bad news though because, honestly, I don’t know if I can take anymore. For as long as I can remember, Band of Outsiders has always been one of my favorite fashion brands. It’s the one that resonates to my inner hipsterness the most and with all of their cute polaroid advertisements, how can you not love them?

If you’re in New York and are looking for a good sale, everything at their store is currently 40% off. Their shop will shutter at the end of June.
