Tuesday, February 4, 2014 Right Now: Copenhagen Fashion Week Street Style
Copenhagen kicked off the first fashion week of the year (NYFW starts in T-minus two days!), and we sent our overseas photographer/resident fashion babe Marie Jensen to document all the killer street style along the way. (Yes, this means she’ll be stopping by London, Milan, and Paris in the very near future. Get pumped!) In our first round of street style snaps, we noticed tons of candy-colored hair, long statement jackets, and no-nonsense mini backpacks. Check out some of our favorite looks below!

Monday, February 3, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Love & Anti-Love Songs
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“As we dip into February and get all drunk on love, these two playlists will catch you on whichever side of love you’re on. Love tracks will get you in the mood to fall in love, or if you’re already in love, kick back and find the nearest hot tub. Anti-Love will take you through the wild ride of being single; getting dissed, trying to figure out why, owning who you are, gettin’ nice and sleazy and of course not giving a fuck about anyone else but yourself.
To start off these seriously smooth love tracks here is Connan Mockasin, with his slick side smile. Be careful, he might make you feel a little shy. I mean, his new record is flawless and it’s called Caramel – just add marshmallows and heat.”

Friday, January 31, 2014 Guest Edit: A Valentine’s Day “How To” by Alexi Wasser
I’m Boy Crazy‘s Alexi Wasser
Listen, we all know Valentine’s Day is a bogus, made up holiday created by the greeting card industry to make money…. But who the fuck cares?! Stop being such a judgey emo kill-joy! It’s here, it exists, we’ve all entered this unspoken agreement as a society to go along with it, so just shut the fuck up and embrace it! After all, it’s an excuse to get gifts, give gifts, and over indulge in sex/chocolate/pink/and red! Let’s celebrate it!
What I still don’t understand is why mistletoe hasn’t made the obvious crossover into Valentine’s Day. What a mistake. Mistletoe isn’t utilized enough during Christmas even. I can never even really find it! But that’s neither here nor there! Back to Valentine’s Day – which I’ve noticed is mispronounced left and right as “Valen-TIME’s day.” WTF?! It reminds me of the time Kim Kardashian (who I don’t even dislike) mispronounced the name of HER OWN FRAGRANCE – calling it ‘VuLUMPtuous’ instead ‘Vuluptuos.’ Who are these people?! What happened to us? And on a side note, not having to do with Valentine’s Days AT ALL—but just a grammatical error that pisses me off beyond belief—is when people sai “I could care less.” It’s “COUNDN’T care less” NOT “COULD care less.” The point of the saying is: you care SO LITTLE, you COULDN’T possible care less! But I digress, back to Valentine’s day and you:
Contrary to what society rams down your throat, Valentine’s Day ISN’T just for couples. It can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways by anyone with a pulse and privates. The following is my guide to celebrating Valentine’s day no matter how much of a winner or loser you might feel like, no matter what your predicament/situation/condition.
And always remember, no matter what you do this Valentine’s Day, no matter who you’re with: I LOVE YOU!
