I’m Part of a Recall Y’all!

Actually this is more scary than exciting, but Kraft has called for a re-call for 242,000 boxes of macaroni and cheese because they believe that 6.5 million boxes of mac and cheese might contain pieces of metal!

In a press release the company gave instructions so customers can find out if they’ve bought any of the possibly contaminated boxes. The issue has affected boxes of the “original” flavor size 7.25-oz with the expiration dates September 18, 2015-October 11, 2015. The boxes must also have the code C2 below the expiration date.

In their company statement, Kraft said, “Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund.”

 

I actually just got up to go check my Kraft boxes and discovered, to my surprise, that they are no longer in my cabinets. It’s cool, I guess I’m currently containing metal then.

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.

The New MacBook

Believe it or not, before I accepted my current job that I am in, I have always been a PC kind of girl. However, when it came time to choose my hardware, Kevin suggested that I try out using Macs just in case I might end up liking it better. Plus, if I didn’t, I could always revert back. While I do, indeed, love my MacBook Air, I haven’t quite adapted fully and still use a PC for my personal use. Actually, I might be one of the few employees at my job that prefers to use two laptops instead of combining both my work and personal. What can I say? It’s hard to let things go. I’m not that nerdy on the Mac though and have never really cared too much about Apple’s big announcements, but this new MacBook is sexy. Also, we hear you, Chet Faker and we’re convinced even more now than ever that we need to own this laptop. Nice song choice, Apple.

Next Season on The Bachelorette…

25 men will go on dates with both Kaitlyn AND Britt! For the first time ever in Bachelor/Bachelorette history, there will be two bachelorettes and they pretty much were the babes of last season’s The Bachelor. In the beginning of the season, Britt was the frontrunner for The Bachelor, but seeing Kaitlyn get as far as she did, others were convinced that she would be the next Bachelorette. Tough choice, but having both of them will definitely make up for some entertainment.

Apparently the guys will go after both of them and ultimately decide who they think will make the better wife. Will there be one of them left standing? Will both of them go after the same guy? Will Britt and Kaitlyn each have a rose to give out at the very end? So many questions about logistics. We’re looking forward to May 18th when the next season starts!

Bay Bridge to Darken on Friday

There are so many pretty parts to San Francisco, but the Bay Bridge lit up is definitely near the top of the list. I remember when I used to have this view on a weekly basis and how much I a) loved it and b) took it for granted when it was no longer a constant. It is absolutely gorgeous. This coming Friday, however, the lights from the world’s largest LED light sculpture will come down as there was only a contract for a 2-year display.

People loved the Bay Lights so much, though, that the nonprofit organization behind it, Illuminate The Arts, managed to raise $4 million to make the exhibit a permanent fixture.

The 25,000 LEDs will come down so Caltrans can perform maintenance on the bridge cables. They’re planning on having them back up by February 2016, though, just in time for Super Bowl 50.

We’re so sad to see them go, but time flies and as long as they’ll be back, we won’t pout about it.

Karlie Kloss is Leaving Victoria’s Secret

Just as she was rising to the top of Victoria’s Secret stardom, Karlie Kloss is preparing to make her exit. It was reported last week that the angel is indeed walking away from all the VS modeling gigs and trading in those wings for a bunch of school books. This fall, Karlie will officially be a student at New York University! Hooray! She’s not quitting modeling for good, however, but as you might imagine, a contract with Victoria’s Secret takes up a fair amount of time. At least she’s walking away with four Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows under her belt. While at NYU, Karlie will be enrolled at Gallatin School of Individualized Study and word on the street was that former supermodel Christy Turlingtun Burns was the one who actually wrote Karlie’s letter of recommendation. Awwww. It’s hard to believe she’s just 22 because the girl seems much wiser beyond her years. We’re excited for her education and what she’ll do next!

Madewell Teams Up W/ Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter

When I think of Madwell, I am reminded of two things. They’re the sister store of J. Crew and they’re home to some of the most exquisite pieces of denim I’ve ever come across in my life. Full disclosure – I don’t actually own a pair of Madewell denim… yet, but I will someday! I’m saving up! I’ve tried on a couple of pairs in their stores a few times now and each time, I find that they fit like a glove and perfectly which is difficult for me as I’m 5’1 and very petite. Jeans aren’t something that come easy for me which is why I always lean towards dresses and skirts.

Earlier this week, the company announced a major collaboration! They’ll be joining forces with both Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter to sell their pieces with them similar to how there’s a Free People section within Nordstrom’s TBD. Starting February 24th, 70 of Madewell’s pieces can be found on Nordstrom.com with physical pieces being in 15 Nordstrom stores on March 6th. On February 25th, 50 Madwell items will be avaialble for purchase online at Net-A-Porter. I’m pretty excited about this news because sometimes when I want to go shopping at all, I’ll JUST go to a Nordstrom (because it’s like home) so now I don’t need to find myself walking through the mall to get to another Madwell.

Sasquatch 2015 Lineup

Oh em gee – space themed! We’ve been a little bit slow on the posting lately because I’m recovering from a small cold. I must be losing my edge lately because I barely recognize anyone from the last five lines of the lineup! Regardless, Sasquatch always does such a great job and people always come out of it enjoying the experience that they’ve had.

I just happen to be a girl that prefers a shower and a bed ;)
