Whoa, I don’t actually think I ever knew the words when I was singing this in my car on the way to work every morning. And now… we do!
The more you know…
It was a tough decision, but between Beyonce and Rihanna, I had to pick one and “Work” was a much better dance jam than “Formation.” Wouldn’t you agree? Also, I just love that Rihanna and Drake keep doing songs together! Moar, please. Sandy and I listened to this three times in a row at our desks the other day.
Anna Wintour in Chanel – she hosted the whole thang so she had to be first.
It killed me that I couldn’t post every look and have this ready to go for you all this morning! I was so excited to see some of the looks from the Met Gala yesterday evening and then a part of me knew that I would hate some looks as well. With the theme being, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” I was concerned that there would be jabs poked at stereotypes and Asian trends that would make me cringe. Of course there were, but like all things, we have to move on and not dwell on them. In the interest of saving time (and space!) I am choosing not to include looks that I felt were in poor taste.
I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.
Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

It’s a rare treat when we can get all mainstream on Yow Yow! Also, am I the only one rooting for her and Drake to be together? Cutest couple for the win.
I’ve never really been a huge fan of selfies. For some reason, when I find them from my friends on Facebook or Instagram, they make me feel a little bit awk. It leads me to wonder about several questions –
I recently read about this study that while taking selfies can be gratifying for the person taking the selfie, it can have a huge impact on relationships you might have with your friends, family, and acquaintances on Facebook. In a study by UK researchers, they found that
“People, other than very close friends and relatives, don’t seem to relate well to those who constantly share photos of themselves,” Dr. David Houghton, a marketing lecturer at Birmingham Business School, said in a statement.
“It’s worth remembering that the information we post to our ‘friends’ on Facebook, actually gets viewed by lots of different categories of people: partners; friends; family; colleagues and acquaintances; and each group seems to take a different view of the information shared.”
With the high usage of smart phones and applications like Instagram, it’s unlikely that the trend of “selfies” will be going away any time soon. You won’t be seeing any selfies from me, but if you are doing them yourself here are a few points from the study and tips to keep in mind. Click here for the full article.
Another Stay cover! These are always my favorite, but any time you see Kina Grannis doing a cover, you pretty much know it’s going to be a good one.
I feel so lucky to have some incredible individuals in my life. While I was at Seattle University, it seemed like every one of my friends had their own side project and in a small community like Seattle University, we’ve always been supportive of each other. Readers, I’ve shared with you my friend Maddie Cary a couple of times. She’s a talented singer who has even written a couple guests posts on her for Yow Yow! She is currently recording covers on her PureVolume page for a Top 40 project and sure enough she chose to cover my favorite…
Can you guess it?
Check out her cover of it here and the rest of her covers.
Another “Stay cover!
Hooray! Another cover of “Stay” by Max Schneider and Hannah Trigwell
Because…can we ever really get tired of listening to covers of “Stay?” I don’t think so.
