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:

Clinique vs. Crayola Chubby Sticks

Photo by | Refinery 29

When I first laid eyes on this Crayola Chubby Stick Lip Balm set, I wished I had discovered these before Christmas instead of after New Years! How cute are these?! I feel like every woman would want to own this set and if every shade isn’t for you (when is it ever?) then at least just keep it on display. I love the shade of Melon and for those days when you’re trying to keep it minimal – I’d select Fuzzy Wuzzy. I’m also strangely attracted to Mango Tango. It may not be an everyday look, but how fun would it be to bring this out with you for a Friday or Saturday night?

This latest collaboration between Cinique and Crayola is pure genius. The entire collection of Chubby Sticks are out to the public already and being sold for $17 each. However, you don’t want to wait until the last minute – this collection is only available through February so make sure you collect your favorites ASAP!

And Then There Were Four…

Wow, it’s a little bit strange to see the group without Camila isn’t it? Do you think the group will still continue calling themselves Fifth Harmony? Fourth Harmony doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, but changing the name now means sort of changing their entire brand. They sort of did themselves a disservice by naming themselves this in the first place, but I’m sure they didn’t anticipate that one member would leave them. Or maybe they did! As a fan of the group, I think I saw this coming from their X Factor days.

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 Barbie Salad

Would you eat it?! People come up with the funniest things on the internet, but this one sort of takes the cake. It’s sort of interesting and creative, but gross in a way! I’ve included the recipe at the source if anyone is willing to try this out, but does anyone else find this hard to actually consume? Secondly, does this even taste… good? Please, please, please won’t one of you construct this?

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.

Mariah’s 2017

By now, you may have heard that Mariah Carey flopped last night during her New Year’s Eve Performance. If you haven’t heard it, you can watch the video above for all you need to know, but do it now before it gets taken down or something. What I want to know though is… what person believed that Mariah Carey was ACTUALLY going to sing during this performance? It’s 2017 and I can’t remember the last time Mariah actually sang at a performance, but at least she’s owning it like the bad B that she is.

Nike’s Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid in Dark Green

This is a very long name for a sneaker. When I saw these on Hypebeast today, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! For one, we’ve been obsessed with our Oreo Flyknits since the day that we got them and we’d take them in every color and style if we could! We feel very drawn to the dark green though because you know…northwest, but also how good does this look against the leather? It’s the perfect combination of soft and delicate with something that’s a little bit more rough around the edges. We’ll take one pair of these, please! Now… to come up with $185.00.

Mike Boyd Wins At 2016

Honestly, what have I have been doing with my year?! This guy Mike learned all these skills in 2016 and the best thing I learned is something so unmemorable that I don’t even know what to write to finish this sentence.

I thought that this was going to be very calming and soothing, but instead it ended up being kind of stressful!

This is one of the more powerful ads I’ve seen in preventing gun violence in a long time. I remember feeling floored after watching it the first time around that I watched again. Thank you Herman for sharing this!

Lauren Duca Stands Up to Bully Tucker Carlson

By now, I hope everyone has seen this clip. I watched this a few days ago and I felt like I was FUMING inside. I can’t imagine how frustrating this must have been for journalist Lauren Duca who was talked over by Tucker Carlson the entire time. Another part of this that bothered me is that when I tried to look up this clip so that we could write this post the headlines that kept popping up were “Tucker Carlson DESTROYS Moron Journalist Lauren Duca on Ivanka Trump” and “Lauren Duca Lies to Tucker Carlson.” No, that’s not what happened here and how manipulative of these sources to write the headlines that will sway people to think otherwise. Lauren was not destroyed by Tucker. She was bullied and I think every woman that watched this was proud of Lauren for standing up for all women in saying that our interests in pop culture and politics are not mutually exclusive.

This is something that resonates so strongly with me because I would never accept someone coming on to Yow Yow! and telling me that I’m not allowed to have a political view point just because I write about what celebrities are wearing on the red carpet or which wedding videos make me tear up. Just like men, women are allowed to have multiple interests. Shame on Tucker for telling Lauren that she should stick to writing about thigh high boots. It’s 2016. That’s the equivalent of telling us we belong in the kitchen and that is NOT okay. Fox News is the worst, but it’s important for everyone to view both sides of the spectrum here. Also, s/o to Teen Vogue – I’ve never been so proud of the magazine that I spent years reading tackling the hard issues and educating young girls on what’s going on in politics today!
