Monday, February 24, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Southern Rap
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“Move over Yeezus. From Cashville to ATL to the 305, the dirty South is full of some serious rap gods. You can dance to Southern hip-hop with your gals, turn it up in your ride, or, what the hell, even listen to it while you’re brushing your teeth, so feel free to rock some overalls and a crop top with this finger lickin’-good playlist. Now hurry up with my damn biscuits.”

Friday, February 21, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: The Best Festival Hair With Lou Teasdale
Not everyone can call themselves a “rock ‘n’ roll groomer,” but London-based beauty expert Lou Teasdale totally fits the bill. She kicked off her career as a hair assistant on The X Factor back in 2007, and today she styles the now-infamous boy band coifs of One Direction. An avid festival-goer herself, we thought she’d be the perfect person to gives us some insight on how to style our strands without a lot of product, tools, and, um, shower time. (Not to mention she’s releasing a “creative bible” on DIY hair and beauty called The Craft come April!) Here, Lou shows us how to conquer a 3-day sweatfest in style and—remember, ladies—“baby wipes and dry shampoo are your friends.”
Thursday, February 20, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: I Love You Magazine
Berlin-based I Love You magazine started life as a fashionable blog, but its print reincarnation has but all the style and substance of the most well-respected glossy. Thematically tackling life’s big topics–diet, ego, motherhood–in a smart, aesthetically pleasing way, I Love You offers a refreshing alternative to the clichéd editorial that still dominates newsstands. Phoebe Lovatt spoke to Editor-in-Chief Christiane Boerdner to find out how she goes about creating “the type of magazine that women love and at the same time a magazine that loves women.”
Wednesday, February 19, 2014 Right Now: London Fashion Week Street Style
We care about style year-round but, dang, February really is all about the fashion. We kicked off the month with some killer Copenhagen street style and even illustrated our favorite NYFW looks, but this week, we’re back overseas in London Town with our stylin’ street photographer/blogger babe Marie Jensen. Check out some of her favorite snaps below!
