Chelsea Leyland’s Festival Diary

Just when we thought our desert adventures were officially over, DJ/London girl Chelsea Leyland hit us up with her best fest snaps, and we couldn’t be more stoked! Check out what went down during her music-filled weekend in Indio, C.A. below. Day 1 of Coachella: A little flowery bush action to get the day started, no

Nazanin Mandi’s Festival Diary

We were so stoked when singer/model/actress/all-around babetron Nazanin Mandi stopped by NGHQ last month to talk all-things festival, but, dang, girl was not kidding about having a killer time in the desert (and mastering those well-lit selfies). She shared some seriously awesome snaps with us, and, well, we’ll let her do all the talking. Take

Cailin Hill’s Adventures In Okinawa, Japan

 I’ve never actually gone on a vacation before. OK, that’s a lie. Once I went to Costa Rica in the off-season with a guy I wasn’t dating and learned my lesson HARD about off-season vacationing and the rules of platonic relationships while abroad. *ahem* It was complete misery and—beyond the boy troubles—it rained every single day.

If you’re unfamiliar with Agenda, it’s best explained as an invite and industry-only trade show where brands

Steaktooth On: Thigh Gaps

In the online world, it’s hard to distinguish between what is just enough and what is too far. Terms like “thinspiration” may have been born from the innocent phrases like “bikini ready,” but now these words are tied to much darker subjects—like pro-ana sites. It is for that reason alone many health and fitness bloggers have

Ingrid Kesa Hangs With Laura Bannister

Laura Bannister and I first met at university. Back then I didn’t know much about her, except for the fact that she had the most fun clothes ever. She’d arrive at lectures wearing fur, fringe and fluro—it’s hardly a surprise that I found it difficult to concentrate in class. Since then, we’ve become pretty good pals (our first

White Eyeliner, Two Ways

Ivania Carpio of Love Aesthetics shows us how to wear white eyeliner in two totally fresh ways. “I like things that are as radical as they are simplistic, like a single solid line as opposed to a perfectly-blended eyeshadow. Here is the result of experimenting with my new opaque white eye pencil. The first is
