Thursday, March 13, 2014 Top Tens: Movie Scenes That We Wished Happened At Our Prom
Whether you were a nerd, queen bee, stoner or total freak, high school was certainly an experience for all of us. Then, after four long years being trapped in the suburbs, it all culminates into one big moment: prom. But here’s the thing: movies have tricked us into thinking something super major will happen on the big day. (See: everyone suddenly breaking out into a choreographed dance routine, the shyest girl in school getting named prom queen, or, gulp, someone getting eaten by a vampire.) The truth is, it’s probably going to be a heck of a lot of chaperones, awkward dancing, and avoiding people you don’t like, but here are top 10 moments that we wished happened at our school dance.
Wednesday, March 12, 2014 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Sarah Engelland At SXSW: Part 1
You might’ve spotted model Sarah Engelland on the John Galliano F/W 2014 and Saint Laurent S/S 2014 runway this past year, but this week she took a break from the fashion world and headed to SXSW for a balls-out road trip. Sarah is a total Southern girl (and a major foodie!), so she decided to share her day-to-day hangs with us because, well, she’s cool like that.

Monday, March 3, 2014 Guest Edit: Why Pink Is Punk
For my fifth birthday my parents threw me a pink party. Everyone (even my dad, poor guy) wore pink. There were pink balloons strewn all over the place, pink cotton candy, and a big chocolate cake with pink icing. I even took the theme one step further by anointing guests with a stripe of fluoro pink zinc (this was summertime in Australia, after all) across their noses upon arrival. To keep the peace, the few boys invited were offered orange zinc instead, but one of them, Ethan, insisted on having pink. I remember us girls thinking he was a weirdo. We giggled into our frosted-pink cupcakes and teased him all afternoon. Now I think back on it, though, Ethan was pretty punk.

Sometimes you just need to pack your bags, hop on a plane and travel across the world with your two BFFs, and, well, that’s exactly what we did. The Model Burnbook’s Cailin Hill and IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika met us in Japan for a super kawaii adventure that included a trip to Hanayashiki—the oldest amusement park in Tokyo—and a tschotske-filled foray through some tiny temples. Check out some of our favorite snaps below!
