Friday, January 31, 2014 Guest Edit: A Valentine’s Day “How To” by Alexi Wasser
I’m Boy Crazy‘s Alexi Wasser
Listen, we all know Valentine’s Day is a bogus, made up holiday created by the greeting card industry to make money…. But who the fuck cares?! Stop being such a judgey emo kill-joy! It’s here, it exists, we’ve all entered this unspoken agreement as a society to go along with it, so just shut the fuck up and embrace it! After all, it’s an excuse to get gifts, give gifts, and over indulge in sex/chocolate/pink/and red! Let’s celebrate it!
What I still don’t understand is why mistletoe hasn’t made the obvious crossover into Valentine’s Day. What a mistake. Mistletoe isn’t utilized enough during Christmas even. I can never even really find it! But that’s neither here nor there! Back to Valentine’s Day – which I’ve noticed is mispronounced left and right as “Valen-TIME’s day.” WTF?! It reminds me of the time Kim Kardashian (who I don’t even dislike) mispronounced the name of HER OWN FRAGRANCE – calling it ‘VuLUMPtuous’ instead ‘Vuluptuos.’ Who are these people?! What happened to us? And on a side note, not having to do with Valentine’s Days AT ALL—but just a grammatical error that pisses me off beyond belief—is when people sai “I could care less.” It’s “COUNDN’T care less” NOT “COULD care less.” The point of the saying is: you care SO LITTLE, you COULDN’T possible care less! But I digress, back to Valentine’s day and you:
Contrary to what society rams down your throat, Valentine’s Day ISN’T just for couples. It can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways by anyone with a pulse and privates. The following is my guide to celebrating Valentine’s day no matter how much of a winner or loser you might feel like, no matter what your predicament/situation/condition.
And always remember, no matter what you do this Valentine’s Day, no matter who you’re with: I LOVE YOU!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 Right Now: Get Ready For #GIRLBOSS!
Dudes, #GIRLBOSS is (almost!) here. Nasty Gal Founder and CEO Sophia Amoruso’s new book is officially available for pre-order and will hit stores/the internet starting May 6. Here’s a little description of what to expect: “From the food bank to making bank, #GIRLBOSS is the story of how I tried to escape capitalism—and ended up a CEO. At age 17, I was a dumpster-diving, shoplifting anarchist, but by 29, I’d turned Nasty Gal into a $100+ million business. #GIRLBOSS shares all the lessons I learned along the way. I can’t wait for you to read it.” (Bonus: Check out Sophia’s killer video below.)
Monday, January 27, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Play To Win
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“In the Nasty Gal creative studio, we’re no strangers to seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The internet’s relentless hunger for pictures of cool girls wearing killer outfits makes every week a series of challenges. Whether it’s finals, a second graveyard shift, or a martial arts tournament fight to the death (oops), you’re probably no stranger to obstacles either. So, I’ve compiled a series of tracks that help get me through anything. The best part? Most of them are from ’80s movie soundtracks. You’re welcome.”
