Cyber Abuse is not Sexy

https://youtu.be/o8VZX4sHn-4 As the wise Lily Allen once said “It’s hard out here for a bitch.” As of late, words have never been truer. A few weeks ago I had to go on a social media purge. From the hollywood rape allegations to the fight against a woman’s right to choose… it’s been tough. Unfortunately, I came here to remind you of yet another reason why we need feminism. At this point you've probably heard of revenge porn. If you've been…

We Love Graphique de France

Over the course of my life, I’ve had many people tell me I live in a cloud. I’ve described myself on several occasions as the human embodiment of a xanex. Yet despite my relaxed nature, I have always been ambitious. Still, few people would describe me as organized. Whatever, haters! Somehow this space cadet has managed to build an awesome brand with several amazing staff members and contributors. I get by with a little help from my friends. Speaking of…

Being a Feminist in Mayim Bialik’s World

Deserving of an unnervingly hollow Big Bang Theory laugh track, is Mayim Bialik’s latest take on feminism in Harvey Weinstein’s world. Earlier this week, the scientist/actress published an op-ed for the New York Times, not about her personal experiences with Harvey Weinstein, but rather how she avoided those types of situations in Hollywood by dressing modestly and not being a perfect 10. As you can imagine, many young women in and out of Hollywood cringed while reading it. https://twitter.com/pattyarquette/status/919258032210698240 I’ll…

VB x Estée Lauder

As my bio states, Posh Spice is and forever will be my spirit animal. Tattoo it on my forehead, scream it from the mountain tops. We've had our milestones together; our ups and downs. The Posh Spice Barbie doll, dressed in a black and purple lace-trimmed slip dress, was always my go-to. We both know we can't sing too well.  No smiling? No problem. We're happy (enough) on the inside. I stood by her with both her questionable matching outfits…

Doc To Watch: Gaga Five Foot Two

At just 31 years old, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is a queen of reinventing herself. Known for glamorous outfits, power pop anthems, and staunch activism, Lady Gaga has already shown the world several versions of herself. From “Just Dance” to her jazz album with Tony Bennett, and now, the "Joanne" era; Gaga has proven herself to be a modern-day trobairitz. In her latest release, a Netflix documentary by the name of Gaga: Five Foot Two, the audience glimpses at the…

Torrid Debuts @ NYFW

As Fashion Month nears its end for the Spring/ Summer 2018 season, I look back on my experience at New York Fashion Week. A few years ago, I could only dream of attending such a glamorous event. There were many personal fashion highlights, such as seeing Anna Dello Russo rock THE $10,000 Yves Saint Laurent boots in person, or catching a glimpse of my imaginary bestie, Derek Blasberg, exiting the Michael Kors show. The real headliner of the week, though,…

The Feminist Guide to Chivalry

Feminism. It’s equality. It’s historically and graphically dependent. It’s Roxane Gay taking down Twitter trolls. And, lately, it’s the latest trend. Hillary Clinton’s are spray painted on Williamsburg sidewalks. The Etsy market for feminist baseball hats is booming, and Forever 21 wants to be woke so bad they’re willing to (allegedly) steal for it, which is so not woke. Even though feminism is becoming more widely accepted thanks to graphic tees and tireless politicians, there’s still one term that most…

Fenty Beauty Is The Perfect Amount of Extra

Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably heard that powerhouse Rihanna launched her diverse and sparkly AF Fenty Beauty line this month at Sephora. Fenty Beauty is the makeup catered toward every skin tone, with over 40 shades of foundation. Since it’s launch, other brands have been scrambling to play politically correct catchup. Marc Jacobs, KKW Beauty, and Hourglass Cosmetics all flooded their Instagram feeds with glossy images  to showcase that they also sell darker shades just a week…

Caroline Vreeland is a Living Icon

Instagram is best used as a source of inspiration, but oftentimes the app can feel mundane. In the saturated world of fashion, it is really difficult to stand out. There are millions of people posting their #OOTDs, and it's hard to distinguish one hot mormon blogger from the next. One person who never fails to entertain me online is Caroline Vreeland. She's the perfect combination of timeless beauty and unapologetic sex appeal. Even GQ has a crush on her. Following Caroline is a lesson…

Jennifer Kapahi: treStiQue is chic

As a blogger, I've tried countless beauty products. My lipstick collection exceeds 50 colors. Yet, despite having tried nearly every brand in Sephora, I find myself grabbing the same lip crayon over and over. The brand is treStiQue, and I wouldn't be surprised if you've never heard of it. It wasn't until early this year that they made their debut in Sephora, under the #scouted initiative. But before you go back and buy the eyebrow pencil you're only kind of happy…
