Tuesday, April 29, 2014 Globetrotter: Jamaica, Jamaica!
When my best London buddy Sharmadean Reid (owner of a very cool company you might know called WAH Nails) iMessaged me to suggest a mid-winter reunion in Jamaica, I blue-bubbled back with a resounding, “HELL YES.” I hadn’t been to the Caribbean island since I was a little kid, but I didn’t need much persuading to go back. Sunshine, reggae, sea water the color of Listerine… what’s not to like about that list?
So Sharma and I flew into Montego Bay Airport from our respective sides of the ocean, roping in our favorite LA fairy Camille Garmendia for the ride. I knew I was going to like Jamaica from the moment we stepped out of the airport and got that first hit of sultry, tropical heat. What I didn’t know is that I was about to fall head over heels, butterflies-in-the-stomach in love with Jamaica. That little island got me bad. Here’s how.
Monday, April 28, 2014 Guest Edit: How To Wear Tie-Dye For Any Occasion
I love tie-dye. I got my first tie-dye T-shirt in sixth grade. I have worn tie-dye on every occasion (except weddings, but that’s because I don’t own a Lindsey Thornburg tie-dye dress… yet). From NYC fashion week parties to work meetings to hiking in Hawaii to getting my make-up done for a film project, check out how I was able to rock tie-dye anytime, anywhere.

Friday, April 25, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Jo Ratcliffe
If you swiped up an issue of SUPER NASTY mag last year, you might remember that we chatted up London-based illustrator/art director/animator Jo Ratcliffe, but so much has happened since then. Admittingly, we’re most excited about her work being featured in Nasty Gal Founder and CEO Sophia Amoruso’s new book, #GIRLBOSS. In it, Jo transforms Sophia’s rules of being a #GIRLBOSS into killer pieces of art, which are equally inspirational as they are awe-inspiring. Jo is quite the #GIRLBOSS of her own, though—her clients have included everyone from Louis Vuitton to Kenzo to Katy Perry, just to name (a very select!) few. So, we caught up with Jo to find out what she’s been working on since we last chatted, and get the lowdown on what inspires all her on-point illustrations.
