OBSESSED: WEEK ONE
We are trying this new thing where we give you a list of our obsessions for the week ::cue Mariah Carey’s “Obsessed”:: They (our obsessions) range from fashion finds/icons, to people, to colors, etc. – and they change daily. That’s the beauty of this here installment – nothing will remain the same. Everything is disposable. But, whether you are in one minute and forgotten about the next, just hope you are never on the #sonotobsessed list. Now, follow us into this bewitched cult of all things wonderful.
PS. How many times do we say obsessed in this post?
PSS. #LACANVASOBSESSED on Instagram and maybe your obsession will be featured in next weeks installment
We check Nadia’s fashion blog religiously. Unlike other fashion bloggers whose outfits are always similar in style and often boring, this plus size perfection rocks something new ALL THE TIME. Her outfits range from chic dresses to streetwear to sculptural coats to DIY and so on. Making moves in the plus size fashion world is obviously what she was put on Earth to do – and I will continue to update my browser in order to never miss what she will do next. (Rumor is she may be joining us on the west coast ::crosses fingers::).
This isn’t really a weekly obsession, but more like a lifetime one. Everyone should be obsessed with eyebrows because they say eyes are the gateway to our souls, which is fine, but eyebrows make that gateway look good – and I say, the thicker the better, whether they are natural (LUCKY) or you have to color them in, just go big or go home.
LENOVO IDEAPAD YOGA
So, when someone in the office said she was getting rid of her Macbook for a Lenova Yoga Pad, we were scared that she was going to live a life free of all technonolgy and be a yogi, luckily this was not the case. Lenova created a laptop/tablet that flips every which way (like those who practice yoga – we get it now) AND Leslie Knope uses one on Parks and Rec, so obviously we want one too.
KOMONO WIZARD PRINT SERIES WATCHES
Komono has figured out a way to to not only make a simple watch look cool, but create a dope photo in the process. The band on the watch lines up perfectly with its background fabric – the meticulous work and eye have paid off, kudos. We almost want to just stare at them in photo instead of on our wrist, almost.
First, Malala you are a badass. You are the youngest person to ever be a Nobel Prize Nominee, you believe in education to the point of almost being martyred for it, and you just wrote a book after a traumatic experience with the Taliban that could have taken your life. AND, after all of this, you are still a firm believer in non-violence. Basically, you are better than us.
Yes, the color. It works with everything. It is the new, more chic, neutral – mix it with any color, be daring: rose gold makes it easy. You don’t have to be afraid that it will be too much, or that you don’t have enough inner rapstar in you to pull off yellow gold chains – with rose gold, you a subtle yet you know what you are doing. You are changing the gold game.
TOM FORD’S 2013 EYEWEAR AD
First, that leopard and fur grabbed our attention quick. Then, we spent the next 3 hours searching the web for places carrying these exact glasses (preferably the ones on the left), because we needed them and we didn’t care how much they cost. we still don’t. LINK US SOMEONE.
TUNA TARTARE FROM THE FAT COW
There isn’t much to say other than this dish is filled with flavor. We were told the Dutch like to refer to this foodgasm phenomenon as “angels shitting on your tongue.” And well, they were right. Eating tuna tartare tastes just like that.
SAMMY ADAMS “POP MONEY”
It’s simple, the flow of the song is insane and it turns us into bobble heads whenever we listen to it. BOSTON’S BOY!!!
PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES
Come on guys, stop allowing Starbucks to rot your brain. They are not that great.
