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.

Thursday, February 27, 2014 Right Now: Ingredients For A Festival
Ah, music festivals. We live for the adrenaline-filled three day weekend of non-stop music, dancing, and BFF hangs, but—we have to be real—it’s not all pretty flower crowns and perfect beachy waves. There’s a large (see: 100%) chance that you’ll be the sweatiest, dirtiest, and thirstiest you’ve been in your entire life, but, hey, in the end it’s all worth it. So, in the spirit of festival season, we compiled a (semi-realistic) list of ingredients for the perfect festival—complete with blisters and all.
