73 Questions w/ Emily Ratajkowski

I really like this cheeky Vogue series that they’ve been doing with celebrities. It’s kind of nice to see them in a low-key intimate environment, but still allowing viewers to get to know them in a different setting than you would on a red carpet. I’ve been following Emily on Instagram for a little while now and I find her to be pretty fascinating. She’s come a long way from being “just the girl in the Robin Thicke music video” and I’m excited to see what’s next (especially since her last movie was a bust.)

How to Make Bubble Tea

I still remember being like 13 and Kevin introducing me to bubble tea when we were much younger. I used to find the whole concept to be really strange because boba – or the tapioca pearls – have no flavor whatsoever. Can we just admit that their only purpose is to make drinking the beverage a little more fun? Since moving to California, I’ve probably had more bubble tea here than ever in Seattle especially because my office is next to two shops and my coworkers and I frequent both places often. I came across this video through Herman today on How to Make Bubble Tea and it’s through a series on YouTube called Peaceful Cuisine. It actually is pretty nice to not have commentary in your ear  about every step. Much more relaxing to watch and share too.

Dress Your Tech

I feel like such a little nerd, but ever since I received my Macbook Pro last week, I’ve been nerding out hard. It’s funny because I just had an Air before and there’s not that much of a difference except my Pro is a little bit heavier, but like… a LOT MORE POWERFUL and it’s AWESOME!

I’m not really one to decorate my gadgets and keep most of my techy things pretty simple, but I saw this wooden cover for a Mac on Cool Material today and thought I would share. You can order them in three different shades – Walnut, Cherry, and Dark Ebony. To make your Mac stand out a little bit more, click here.

Marshawn’s Pepsi Commercial

I had a massive giggle fit after watching this. For my 2 year work anniversary, my manager promised and purchased me a Marshawn fathead to go up on our wall. This was a very hard thing for her to do given that she’s a hardcore 49er’s fan. Meh. But she says she likes Marshawn so this was okay.

#GoHawks! Can’t wait for the game today!

Found Them First

A coworker of mine introduced this to me last week. Found Them First allows you to connect with your Spotify to let you know which artists you were listening to before they made it big! Kevin and I are always competing with each other about who introduced who first to a new band or artist – now we can just let this website tell us instead. I knew about 21 artists/bands before they made it big, what about you?

Ari and Jimmy Do Impersonations

Ari has been a little bit idle lately (and so have we!) She appeared on Jimmy Fallon last night doing impersonations of Britney, Christina, and Celine and pretty much nailed it. Honestly, this was just another excuse to see her do the Celine impersonation I’m sure because she’s famous for it.

My Favorite Pair of Best Friends

The two of them doing the “Single Ladies” dance at the US Open. They’re really having a week and the world. is. loving. it.

Also, I typically love these “History of Rap” things and they’ve always been my favorite, but this is probably my least – why so many pauses and breaks in between?!

MTV’s Casting Call Page

Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 10.43.57 PM

When you need a laugh or when you start to question whether or not your life is crumbling, just remember that MTV is looking for these people to make television shows about. I don’t even know what some of these things even mean.

Viral Instagram Photos Re-Made

I found this video by Cosmo editor Amy Odell to be pretty cheeky. In it, she recreates some of the most viral Instagrams herself and explains how much work it really can be from tying laces for an hour and posing in a way in which her breasts inch towards her navel. What does that even mean? I’m now on this path to watching lots of Instagram how-to videos. This is going to be on a long night.

Five Favorite Pins: A White Bedroom

I recently have been contemplating moving up to San Francisco. BIG CHANGE. In addition to gaining a similar experience that I had when I used to live in downtown Seattle, I will also be inheriting a really upsetting commute. It has been a difficult decision to make and I’m actually still in the process of making it. However, as much of a hassle as it is to move, there’s something really refreshing about starting over. In some ways, it’s a clean slate. After two years living in the same place, maybe this is a good opportunity to try something new or maybe… it just isn’t the time yet. One thing that I would be excited for about this move though is revamping my bedroom. For as long as I have known since I was growing up, my bedroom has always been a sacred space. It’s the home within a home and these days I’ve been pinning lots of bedrooms on Pinterest that ere towards a more minimalistic vibe and happen to be completely whited out. I’ve heard that winding down in spaces like these are better for your mind and for your soul. In the past I lived in a studio so I didn’t have a chance to decorate my bedroom exactly the way I wanted it and previous bedrooms have been all over the place. Here are a few pins that I’m gaining inspiration from:

“The And” Project

I’ve been noticing this trend come up a few times in the last couple of months that revolve heavily around relationships, question asking, and exes! When I saw this one come up about two exes asking each other questions they always wanted to ask post-breakup, I actually thought of passing it up, but curiosity got the better of me. The first question that Ali comes out with is “Why did you cheat on me so many times?” which means that “The And” project is REALLY not afraid to just get into it. I actually enjoyed watching both parts and found myself getting just a teensy bit emotional because this kind of thing isn’t something that you can make up. It’s very real and raw and even though it has been two years later, those emotions and feelings are still there – true for most breakups.

My New Favorite Instagram Account

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 9.50.07 AM

After being a week behind on blogging, I was introduced to a new Instagram account yesterday that I am completely enamored with. As most of you know, Instagram is something that I have been spending a little bit more time with in the last few months so when things like this happen, I get a little giddy. This Instagram with the handle “Socalitybarbie” is totally killing it. From the poses, to the captions, to the scenery, this Barbie emulates all of our favorite Instagram stars and pokes a little fun at it while doing so.

The account was created by an anonymous wedding photographed based out of the Pacific Northwest.

As the ingenious photographer told Wired, “Either your Instagram photos look just like her’s or you know at least one person who does.”

Yep, I can’t even hide that this has been my life lately.

PDX Rug for Sale

Because everyone loves the old carpet at the PDX Airport so much, they’ve turned it into a rug. And it’s perfectly hipster and retro in every way. I saw the carpet for the first time when I flew to Portland back in January (both the new and the old) and actually kind of understand why everyone loves it so much. It’s totally 90’s and adorable. You know you want this for your living room now. Don’t even lie to yourself. The rug pieces are 4’x6′ and require that you pick it up in stores for $280. If you want it shipped to you, you’ll have to pay for it entirely by yourself. Wow, serious business.

My favorite local ice cream shop loves Little Mix and Black Magic too. What? Must try. Even though this looks like goopy goop.
