Sometimes these photographs and things are little reminders to myself, but basically more of a collection of my own thoughts from the last couple of months.
For the first time, we are publishing an “A Collection” post and starting the next one immediately. Hopefully, this means that we can have another one posted within the next six months. These are Veronica’s favorite posts and I even texted her this morning to let her know that she could expect it this evening. These posts are so interesting to me because there is usually little to no content. Instead, it’s a post of 50+ images that I’ve collected over 6 months that evoke something out of me. There’s no rhyme or reason. I can’t go through each photo and say why I chose each one. I just know that it’s important to me, that it means something and resonates with me in some way or another. I’ve never actually talked to Veronica about this, but while this doesn’t hold much content, I almost feel like she probably knows what I’m thinking or how I’m feeling through a collection of images. Maybe you all do! You tell me. :)
Because we absolutely needed to talk about the revival of “Full House!” Earlier this week, the news broke out that Netflix would be bringing Full House back to life and the plot line got us even more excited.
According to E! the new series will follow older sister, D.J. Tanner-Fuller (wow, that pun!), played by Candace Cameron-Bure, who is “a pregnant veterinarian – recently widowed – and living in San Francisco.” Jodie Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner, and Andrea Barber, D.J.’s BFF-neighbor Kimmy Gibbler will also star in the series. It’s also heard that John Stamos will co-star and produce.
Now, of course we would love it if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would reprise their role as Michelle Tanner, but it looks like Lori Loughlin isn’t holding her breath and threw a little shade saying she doubts that they even care about the revival. However, after a post I saw yesterday from Ohnotheydidnt, it looks like it’s not completely off the table for the twins.
Mary-Kate said, “We just found out about it today. I guess we’re going to talk to the creators and see what’s happening.”
Meanwhile Ashley said she was surprised that her old co-stars hadn’t mentioned anything to her. “I ran into Bob [Saget] the other day and we didn’t even talk about it. I’m shocked I haven’t heard from John [Stamos].”
As to whether they’ll participate, Ashley said, “I’m going to call [Saget] and get his perspective.”
Omg. It’s really happening! Now #whereiscomet
Also, was D.J.’s husband Steve?! Did Steve die? I have so many questions.
Describing the fallout after her assault, one Harvard student says, “I went to the dean of students’ office and she said, ‘I just want to make sure that you don’t talk to anyone about this.'”
Directed by Kirby Dick, The Hunting Ground tells the story of how major universities across the country are looking the other way when it comes to women getting sexually assaulted on campus to protect their name and their brand. I’m very fortunate to have gone to a school where this wasn’t a huge issue, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen outside of school. 1 in 4 women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime and you should never tell anyone that this happens to to stay silent. I think this film is going to be very important and I think it sends such a strong message to both universities and other young women that could potentially find themselves in a situation like this. The film will be released February 27th in select cities.
Happy almost New Years readers! We’re really looking forward to 2015 and what’s in store not only for me, but also for Yow Yow! We never go into the new year with a plan so it’s always a surprise for us. There’s a whole lot of love today in this post because well, everyone is getting engaged and love is just all we’re thinking about right now.
Oh my gosh you guys, Ashley (Greek) and Gareth (The Walking Dead and also from Greek) got married last night and their photos are amazing. I know I’ve always said that Seth and Summer were alway my favorite tv and real-life couple, but they just couldn’t last. It’s something that Amber and Andrew managed to do and I’m pretty overjoyed (from someone that doesn’t know them at all) that they’ve decided to make things official by becoming husband and wife. I had a really unhealthy addiction to watching Greek on ABC Family.
The two were married on Friday night at the Carondelet House in Los Angeles.
“I could not imagine a better send-off into the rest of our lives together. Amber was beaming all night,” West, 31, tells PEOPLE. “We were surrounded by so much love.”
Adds Stevens, “It was the most magical night of my life. I wish I could rewind and play it again, but I’m so looking forward to our future together.”
The two met on the set of ABC Family’s “Greek” when Andrew was selected to be Amber’s boyfriend:
“He came in to play my boyfriend on the show. We were introduced by the casting director, and I remember I went back to the hair and makeup room immediately and started Googling him. I was like, ‘Well, that guy was cute!’ ” Stevens, 28, said on Conan in June.
Amber walked down the aisle in a gorgeous CB Couture gown while Andrew donned a J. Crew tux.
Throwback to the time I blogged about their engagment here.
I’m about a month late on posting this video, but even those it isn’t timely, I didn’t want to NOT share it. This is one of my favorite songs off of Mayer Hawthorne’s latest album and Rashida Jones even directed the music video and had this to say about it:
The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and devolving into a messy, very unsexy, unexpected trek. And the final realization is that YOU are the real party! I’m just starting to realize that about myself (which is why I stay home most nights). I am a HUGE fan of Mayer, Kendrick and of the song “Crime” and it was an honor to work with Mayer.
Here’s crossing my fingers that he’ll be touring again this year!
For one night only, IKEA is letting you live out that scene from 500 Days of Summer on August 31, 2014. In a partnership with Airbnb, IKEA is letting the families of three winners stay overnight at their store in Tempe, Sydney. The store has decked out three promotional rooms for this event and while we don’t have any photographs, we know it’s something that most would be thrilled to have the chance at doing. The three themes? Rustic charm, inner city living and modern elegance. So how much does it cost to stay in one of these rooms? 12 Australian dollars.
“Airbnb gives people access to the most unique listings around the world from treehouses to yurts to villas, and now we’re adding Ikea to the list,” Eva Ross, Local Operations Lead at Airbnb Australia, said in a statement. “The experience is sure to thrill any guest.”
There’s one proviso in the fine print: “By entering, you agree to be part of an event that will be covered by the media,” it says. “Oh, and that you will be woken in the morning in a remarkable way. Nothing frightening — we promise!”
– Jimmy Fallon, joking about the alleged brawl between the actor and the singer, on The Tonight Show
I’m not a feminist by any means, but I love it when strong females in any industry are willing to stand up for women and empower others by the words they say to the media. Every time my mom and I chat, we’re always bringing up what it means to be a female who is career oriented and driven. We both look up to Sheryl Sandberg and we’re both in awe of strong female leaders! It’s weird for me to excited about something like this, but it’s a topic that I think is coming to light in a time where not everyone is on the same page about it. I mean about a year ago, I was still surrounded by males who saw women one way and wanted to keep them in their place – taking care of the children, leaving the workforce, being a trophy wife. It was an eye-opening experience.
This morning, I read an article about model Doutzen Kroes and how she was going to tell her daughter as she grew up that she was smart – not beautiful. Doutzen is one of the most beautiful women in the world and while she hears that she is beautiful all the time she wants her own daughter to strive for intelligence over beauty.
“Instead of saying, ‘You’re so beautiful,’ I’ll say, ‘You’re smart,’ so she’ll have different aspirations in life than beauty and modelling,” the 29-year-old told Page Six.
“Though I love my job, I’m not changing the world. I’d love for her to study and to have different aspirations. We need to teach girls they can become presidents, and it’s not about beauty all the time.”
The angels were excited this morning as they made the announcement that next year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show would be heading to London!
They broke the news during a press conference inside Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London Tuesday. “We’re pretty excited to be here today because we have this great announcement to make,” Lima said. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event in the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honored to announce that we are headed to London this year. Yes!”
“I’d like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come,” Lima told reporters. The 32-year-old Brazilian beauty promised he’d get the VIP treatment, of course. “He definitely has a front row seat!” she said.
Previous shows have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Cannes, and Miami. I remember seeing looks on the runway featuring the Union Jack in previous shows, but I’m so curious as to what the themes will be this year. And as for performers? We hope it will be better than Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. My vote is for Sam Smith and Jessie Ware.
Actor Aaron Paul has been saying a dozen cute things about his wife Lauren Parsekian to the press lately and no, it’s not disgusting. In fact, it’s completely adorable. Can we have a husband like Aaron Paul?
He just loves her so so much and for good reason, Lauren is an incredible individual and the way they met and fell head over heels with each other? At a music festival.
In a recent article, he talks about their future kids:
“What lucky kids to have Lauren as their mother. I can’t wait,” Aaron told Us Weekly. “I just hope they’re all little girls — all little miniature versions of Lauren because it would be fun to watch her. They don’t need to be all Lauren, but at least one! A little mini Lauren. I would love to watch her grow up.”
Every season, Chanel is always a show that I look forward to. It’s not one that we always feature because maybe at that point in time, I don’t find their collections to be all that wearable, but if there is anything that I am more fascinated by than the clothes, it’s the show itself. For his Fall 2014 RTW show, Karl Lagerfeld created a faux super market with branded items like pasta, canned goods, and even home goods. It was apparent that a whole lot of detail went into planning the show and the thing about this is that had it been an ordinary show – the audience members would never even notice these details.
This show was not an ordinary one though. After each model walked out on the runway, they continued to stay and mill about the grocery store as if they were actually shopping. This made me wonder what the true underlying message is I think Fashionista said it perfectly:
[The set] spoke to the clothes in such a big way, in terms of a grocery store being the great equalizer. All types of women — from hip, young things to polished doyennes — inevitably need to pop into one for some reason or another. So you had girls in crop tops and leggings — so many leggings, from pink and shredded to glittery and purple…not to mention black and white tweed — to fancy ladies in classic skirt suits, like the one who walked out in a pink ensemble, accompanied by a personal butler to carry her myriad Chanel shopping bags.
After the show ended, guests and show attendees were invited to take home a complimentary fruit or vegetable, but naturally some people tried to actually loot the other goods. Can we blame them? Wouldn’t you want pasta out of a Chanel box, too?!
