Wednesday, February 5, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: L.A. Book Fair
We’re not afraid to admit that we spent most of our weekend nose-deep in books. Like, lots and lots of books. We stopped by the second annual L.A. Book Fair at MOCA’s Geffen Contemporary campus to scope out some seriously cool art magazines, photography books and, yes, even take a gander at the killer street style. Get inspired by some of our favorite snaps below.
Tuesday, February 4, 2014 Right Now: Copenhagen Fashion Week Street Style
Copenhagen kicked off the first fashion week of the year (NYFW starts in T-minus two days!), and we sent our overseas photographer/resident fashion babe Marie Jensen to document all the killer street style along the way. (Yes, this means she’ll be stopping by London, Milan, and Paris in the very near future. Get pumped!) In our first round of street style snaps, we noticed tons of candy-colored hair, long statement jackets, and no-nonsense mini backpacks. Check out some of our favorite looks below!

Monday, February 3, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Love & Anti-Love Songs
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“As we dip into February and get all drunk on love, these two playlists will catch you on whichever side of love you’re on. Love tracks will get you in the mood to fall in love, or if you’re already in love, kick back and find the nearest hot tub. Anti-Love will take you through the wild ride of being single; getting dissed, trying to figure out why, owning who you are, gettin’ nice and sleazy and of course not giving a fuck about anyone else but yourself.
To start off these seriously smooth love tracks here is Connan Mockasin, with his slick side smile. Be careful, he might make you feel a little shy. I mean, his new record is flawless and it’s called Caramel – just add marshmallows and heat.”
