Hello Kitty’s Latest Squad Member

Meet Aggretsuko! She doesn’t really look like this and I promise she’s got a cute exterior, but based off the intro video I just saw of her, she also has a dark side. Her tagline? She’s over it. Geez, can we adopt that too? Apparently Aggretsuko is just like all of her friends and Hello Kitty, but inside she’s got some rage. Notice how her name kind of just looks like another version of… “Aggressive?” or “Aggravate?” Aggretsuko is a red panda working as an office associate at a trading company (a working girl! We like this!) and she’s clearly packing a punch.

Watch her intro video here. I laughed the whole way through it.

Guys, Would You Wear It?

Nobody knows more than me that I love a good choker trend. We’ve been obsessing over them since the summer and we’re not slowing down any time soon. However, ASOS decided to put the trend to a serious test this week by releasing a choker for guys. So male readers of Yow Yow! … I have to know, would you wear it? Is this an accessory that you can get behind? How would you style it?

You can check out the full collection here . And before you scratch your head and say, “Katie, but aren’t these women’s chokers? How can you distinguish them?” Well the link I just included shows that the search results have indeed been filtered down to just “men.” Yep. So this is a real thing that’s happening. Then after I read this news, I came across this:

This is The Today Show’s Matt Lauer also wearing a choker. Except, we’re a little put off that he’s displaying it Superman style. Why not wear an outfit that will already allow it to stand out on its own instead of being hidden? Turns out he was wearing this because of the recent news about ASOS so let’s not expect him to be a regular.

Whatever the case, I think I’m okay with this trend. If a guy would like to wear a choker, they should just go ahead. I’m still going to wear mine. Maybe we can match. Let’s just end this post on a good note though:

Meet Harry’s

Harry’s is starting 2017 strong. They just released this video yesterday describing more about the founders, the company and the business and I was completely hooked. It was so engaging. Why can’t every company have a video like this? We actually blogged about Harry’s originally back in 2013 and while I knew that they were still around and in business, things have been pretty quiet on their end. If you’re wondering also why this product reminds you of another quirky product, it’s because the co-founder Jeff Raider is also the man behind Warby Parker too.

A Collection Part 46

I always seem to have the most time to blog around the holidays, but it just so happens that I like being able to post for “A Collection” during this time too. We last did this post about 6 months ago so all of today’s photos are ones that I’ve been collecting and saving since then. Here’s hoping that these photographs tickle you, inspire you, or spark some kind of emotion within you the same way they do to us. Happy New Year! We’re excited for you 2017.

Dining at the American Girl Cafe

This is just an all-around fantastic video. I’ve been hoarding this since September to watch at a later date because a) I didn’t have the time immediately (that’s right, too busy I can’t spare 10 minutes) and b) I have always wanted to eat at the American Girl Cafe. It’s actually very close to me at the Stanford Shopping Center so I feel like I can pretty much go whenever I please. The only downside of this experience though is that I never owned an American Girl doll, myself. Too much $$$$ amirite?!

Whatever the case, I certainly had a fascination with it growing up and while I couldn’t own a doll myself… I was a subscriber of the American Girl magazine for several years. Michael and Molly are hilarious in this video which makes me want to watch more from them.

Most Entertaining Thing I’ve Watched All Day


There are no words. How these students are keeping a straight face through this entire thing is just beyond me. One teacher parodies Top 40 songs to introduce new rules and guidelines in her class and the video has gone viral.

Another Post About The Stranger Things Cast

I’m actually obsessed with this cast and can’t get enough of all of their appearances. Meanwhile, I’m still stuck on getting to Episode 4… someday, we’ll get there.

Stranger Things Cast Visit Jimmy Fallon

First the cast talks about Millie and Finn’s kiss on Stranger Things. Man… I haven’t even gotten this far yet.

Then the cast plays a game of “Stranger Strings” where they read off facts one-by-one and spray the person they think wrote it. During this, we learn that Millie can rap and she’s a BO$$.

I would adopt that Gaten kid. He is too much.

When Brands Clap Back

14102151_1114377031933318_4124454901990305509_n

Looks to be a complaint from a customer – and here’s the company’s response to it that they posted along with this photo:

Dear Rupert,

One sweater does cost us $57 to make; but that’s not the ridiculous part. The ridiculous part is that other brands have a similar cost but mark their prices up so much more. Maybe they need the brain scans.

Know your costs,
Everlane
#DearEverlane

Typically when a customer is upset with a brand or a company, the company usually has to respond with something v. PC and safe. I experience this all the time and I’m usually never satisfied with it. And when I say all the time, I mean I literally just got off the phone with a Comcast rep. Enough said. I actually have to applaud Everlane for this though because not only is it somewhat entertaining to see a brand/company clap back, but Hey! they’re doing the opposite of what everyone else says you have to do. This is great.

My Favorite Meme

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 9.41.58 PM

I know I’m like a month + behind on this, but these Arthur memes have been cracking me up lately. I think my coworker had a whole discussion in a Slack channel recently about our favorite ones. Here are some that were posted on Huffington Post. I remember when I discovered this, I didn’t want the scrolling to end. I just wanted more! There’s also something really entertaining about reviving your favorite things from childhood into something more modern, which is exactly this.

Seth Rogan Helps A Vanity Fair Producer Use Tinder

I don’t normally feel this way about Mondays, but today I really needed a laugh. I couldn’t wait to get home this evening, kick up my feet, and for a few hours just try not to think about work. I remembered seeing this video over the weekend and I honestly wasn’t going to watch it because I imagined that it wouldn’t be that funny. However, given the day I had, I was willing to give it a second chance and I’m glad I did because it actually is pretty funny. Seth doesn’t use Tinder I don’t think, but he has a lot of the same thoughts that my friends and I have about dating apps and sometimes it’s funny when you can relate to someone that you didn’t think you would. Or… you’re just Seth Rogan and you’re funny anyways and you have the worst laugh.
