RIP Nylon Print

Last week, we learned that Nylon would make the complete switch to digital and would be shutting down their print magazine. I spent the weekend thinking about this and how Nylon wasn’t the first magazine to do this and it certainly won’t be the last. I can’t even recall the last year I had a magazine subscription or the last time I even bought one by choice. In a way, I’m the problem here. I’ve been reading Nylon both online and in print since I was a teenager, but these days only sticking to digital.

It was a prominent magazine for me during my scene days and when I felt like dipping into something I thought was just a little bit edgier than Teen Vogue. When I think of my identity back then, I think I was a little bit of both! Half Teen Vogue / Half Nylon. Wasn’t every girl at that age? Nylon was at the cutting edge of trends, icons, fashion, and music. There was even a time where I dreamt of being a part of this magazine in some way shape or form way wayyyy back when I wanted to be a journalist.

I’m very sad to hear that the print version of Nylon is shutting down. The magazine meant so much to me during my adolescent years, but as always, we’ll continue to read Nylon Digital every day and hope that even their print legacy can continue to live on as it shifts to fully digital.

Una

I love to watch movie trailers and I love to get excited about what’s coming out. However, when it really comes down to it, these movie trailers and their dates get lost in my own timeline. I somehow always forget when they come out and when they are released, I don’t make time to watch the film in theaters. It’s quite the problem to have, but it’s been awhile since I’ve watched a trailer (other than “Mother” recently) that caught my attention enough to post it on Yow Yow!

In “Una,” Rooney Mara plays a woman who previously engaged in a relationship with her much older neighbor. The film flashes between present day and her as a child with actor Ben Mendelsohn. After discovering Mendelsohn in the present day, she finds that he has completely stripped himself of his old identity – he has a new name and apparently, a new wife. Currently the film is slated to be released October 13th.

Coachella 2015 Street Style

Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!

I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.

A Full House Reboot

As a 90’s child, I couldn’t get enough of Full House. It was my favorite show and I was convinced that Michelle Tanner and I were pretty much the same person… but you know as two different races and two completely different families. When I saw Alamo Square for the first time and the Painted Ladies (highlighted in the opening credits) I could have died out of excitement. So when it was announced earlier this week that Netflix might be signing on for a reboot of my favorite series, I nearly thought it was an April Fool’s prank. Luckily it wasn’t.

Here’s what we know so far:

– Netflix will be taking on 13 episodes continuing the series.

– It will be titled “Fuller House” instead of “Full House.”

– Candace Cameron Bure will reprise her role as DJ and Andrea Barber will return as Kimmy Gibbler! (The Gibbler!!)

More importantly, are they still in San Francisco? Alamo Square? Where are Danny, Jesse, and Joey now? Are they all still living together? I have so many questions.

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.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Suki Waterhouse

Wearing: Reem Acra

Where: Insurgent Premiere

I actually didn’t think that I would love this, but somehow when I was looking at all the other looks from the premiere, I kept coming back to this one. Completely fixated on how pretty it was, but also how imperfect and edgy it is at the same time.
