“What Do You Mean” if it was released in 1985

This is the greatest thing that I’ve heard all week. That cover photo, that background music, the sax solo! If only we could go back in time…

A Collection Part 45

Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.

The Hills Celebrates 10 Years

Okay so technically it was last week, but we’ve put off writing this post and now we’re catching up! [Hi Beth!] For those of you who don’t know, we watch a lot of television – specifically a lot of REALITY TV and we aren’t ashamed of it. The Hills came onto the air 10 years ago and it was iconic. Every girl wanted to be Lauren and if you didn’t, you were probably a Heidi, Whitney or Audrina which was okay too! I think it was about a year ago that I discovered MTV had the old seasons on OnDemand and I played a serious game of catch up watching episode after episode after episode. Naturally, they flew by because they were just 20-25 minutes. We learned a lot about love [no combat boots at the beach, please] and friendship in that every time we get in a fight with our friends, we shout out, “You know what you did!”

Also who could forget that classic lonely black tear shed on Lauren’s face.

But what’s the most important lesson of all?

You NEVER chose the boy over Paris. Lauren learned a tough lesson with that and god, the world never lets her forget it! Honestly this list could go on, but we want to keep this short. :)

So it was announced last week that there will actually be Hills special airing on MTV in August and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We’re going to see where Lauren is at (married and being successful of course) and learn more juicy details about what it was like to film for the show.

The producers actually already shared some pretty good details that I poured over last week regarding the series and it’s something I think you’ll all find interesting as well – if you’re a fan, that is! You can check it out here!

In Really Scary Things Today…

The character from The Ring through the first pitch at a baseball game in Japan.

C’mon…they couldn’t have just picked a celebrity like everyone else?!

If you’re looking for more creepy moments, just watch this video because she brings out two of her “dead” friends.

An Ugly Christmas Sweater, What’s That?

Ugly Christmas Sweater – Amazon / Skirt – Aritzia

Every year, the last day of work before our holiday vacation, everyone is invited to wear their own ugly Christmas sweater. It’s not that we’re NOT a team player or anything, but… we don’t buy things that are ugly. ;)

Actually though, I love my favorite Christmas sweater vest a very long time ago from college and when I saw this sweater on Amazon under the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” category, it was practically calling my name. It’s so “me!” We love this little hideous thing.

Oreo Wonder Vault

Back in February, Oreo partnered with Weber Shandwick along with Iontank, 360i, The Martin Agency, and Carat to bring to New York City locals the Oreo Wonder Vault! I wish Mandi and I would’ve known about this while we were there because I definitely would’ve put this on our list of things to see, but from the articles that I’ve been reading about it, it seems as if it might’ve been in commission for just one day! So what’s behind the mysterious door you ask? Well, behind the door, passerbys had access to new Oreo flavors that they could’ve picked up six days before the actual release. Apparently, it was the Filled Cupcake Oreo. Yum!

Oreo provided some additional facts about the wondrous “vault”:• As many as 50 prototype flavors and more than 100 additional ideas can be in the Wonder Vault at any time.

• Usually 12-18 months of creation, including monthly tastings, get us to the perfect, delicious flavor but some flavors spend years in the Vault before they are ready for release.
• We make our initial prototypes by hand. Once we feel confident in the flavor, we create a batch in our bakery and the process goes from there with taste tests along the way.
• We try every flavor of crème coming out of the vault on both chocolate and golden cookies to get to the just-right combination, and we are always experimenting with new ideas to make sure we deliver the most delicious treat possible.
• The limited edition process never stops; we have lots of flavor ideas just waiting to make their way to the world.

We’re not sure if the vault is still working or available, but can someone in New York go check for us?! It’s on 18th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Please and thank you!

China’s Most Racist Commercial

I was absolutely floored when I viewed this commercial earlier this evening. Already, it has been viewed over 4 million times and that’s probably because it is completely ridiculous. It has been awhile since I have posted anything this controversial and I went back and forth for a few minutes wondering if I even should at all, but then I remembered that college me probably would’ve posted this and ripped it apart without any hesitation and we never want Yow Yow! to become soft or just fluff. So let’s talk about this commercial for a second.

There’s so much wrong with this video, it’s almost tough to figure out where to begin. Here are my issues with it:

  • Why does the black man in this ad have to come in with stains on his face and shirt whistling at the woman? This is playing into the stereotype that black men are more sexually aggressive towards women and that’s not okay.
  • The woman then puts something into this mouth (detergent) and then proceeds to shove him into the washing machine – looks to be kind of like in a violent manner if you ask me.
  • Lastly, he comes out of the washing machine no longer black, but now a light skinned Asian man. He also happens to be so clean (stain-free) and so white.

Nothing about this commercial, made by Chinese detergent brand Qiaobi, is okay. It is difficult enough to have to still in 2016 watch acts of racism occur in our own country and while I’m not naive in believing that this doesn’t happen outside of the United States, it still is very disappointing to see this.

Blake Shelton and Jimmy Fallon Eat Sushi

Like, what? Blake Shelton – what do you eat? If I could, sushi would be our breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Carpool Karaoke w/ Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas

I was incredibly entertained by this though and watched this twice before bed just last night! We love you Nick and Demi seems like a girl we could probably call a homie.

The Inflatables You Need This Summer

Strawberry Donut Pool Float – $19

We’re headed to Palm Springs this weekend for Mandi’s Bachelorette Weekend and getting more and more excited with every day. Mandi and I have honestly been talking about this for months and when I found out that we were going to Palm Springs, I was ecstatic. It’s my first time! It’s also going to be extremely hot. There’s no doubt that we’ll be spending a lot of our time poolside, but what’s a pool party without inflatables, right? It seems like every pool party I’ve seen this year has had a smattering of assorted inflatables and my favorite ones? The ones that look like food! I believe we’ve got a partially bitten donut coming with us (you know the one we’re talking about!) but here are a few other ones that we wish we could take along too! Don’t be caught without one of these this summer or you’ll be experiencing FOMO.

Sunday Learnings

Sundays are always the days when I have the most time to catch up on Yow Yow! stuff. For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been sharing with everyone little articles or videos that we come across that teach us something. It’s funny – when I was school everything I was learning felt so concentrated and it’s not secret, I was someone that got totally bored with school most times, but these days, being out of school, the things we learn just happen out of nowhere and that’s a bit more exciting to me. Here’s a video on how the Chinese take-out box came to be – turns out, it’s not from China at all!

President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

I’m so behind on this, but I finally got to finish watching this in its entirety this weekend. I don’t know how many people actually agree with me – and it’s okay if you don’t – but I’m really going to miss Barack Obama as a president. He wasn’t a perfect human by any means because no one is, but he was the COOLEST President we’ve ever had. That’s not a requirement for being president, but that’s just how I feel. I’ve enjoyed hearing him speak and continue to be vulnerable in front of America and I still remember being in college surrounded by all of my peers who celebrated him being elected as President the first time and what an incredible moment that was to witness.

This is one of my favorite videos because I think more than ever, we get to see all of President Obama’s humor and it’s perfect.
