Tuesday, April 8, 2014 (Almost) Vintage: Happy Birthday, Twin Peaks
It’s hard to believe on this exact date in 1990, the first ever episode of Twin Peaks aired. Twenty-four years later we’re still obsessed with the campy David Lynch-directed TV series, so we decided to create a much-needed tribute to Agent Cooper, Donna Hayward, Audrey Horne and the whole fictional Washington town gang. (Psst: Play this while you scroll through some of our favorite on-screen moments for the full Twin Peaks effect.)

Thursday, March 27, 2014 Right Now: Nazanin Mandi
Sure, Nazanin Mandi is a quadruple threat with her 17 years of singing, dancing, acting and modeling experience, but really, she’s just a dang fun person to hang out with. The L.A.-based babe (and girlfriend of Miguel!) took a break from recording her debut indie pop EP to talk about her upcoming music festival plans (which includes a photo diary she’s doing just for us, NBD), essential festival tips, and the key to a perfect selfie.
Monday, March 24, 2014 DIY: The Beckerman Twins’ Festive Flower Sunnies
Ah, where do we even begin with the Beckerman twins? Cailli and Sam initially caught our eye with their insanely fun and adventurous style blog, but when we found out they also created killer DIY tutorials, we officially fell in love. The Toronto-born twosome has been crafting, sewing, designing, scrapbooking, and drawing their whole lives—they even made faux fur pink and blue raver skirts for their friends in high school—and they haven’t stopped since. “We love making things together and dreaming up fun DIYs. It’s all about enjoying the process of making something new and not worrying too much about the outcome. We love putting on awesome music and getting lost in time while playing with crafts and making one-of-a-kind creations that no one else has!” So, since it’s officially festival season around these parts, we asked them to create the ultimate pair of fest-ready sunglasses, and, well, they certainly delivered. Here, they show us how to create flower sunnies that are inspired by “a hippy love child who goes to Woodstock with a bunch of her friends in their pink vintage Beetle.” Whew. We’re ready to get schooled.
