Summer’s winding down, but the world wide web is still white hot. So much content, so little time. As usual, we’ve siphoned that content for you, to bring you this week’s web round-up. Awesomeness to follow. Prepare yourselves.
The Endless Summer continues. There’s still a few weeks left to enter the giveaway. Upload a look via the Chictopia app for a chance to win a shopping spree on Shop. Three sprees are up for grabs!
Jumpsuits are lovely. They’re a one and done. Yes, they’re cute, but don’t be fooled. They’ve got quite the history.
Speaking of style history, did you know Alexander Wang’s first cut and sew project were a pair of gingerbread man pants in fifth grade? Get the inside scoop on A. Wang.
Early hearing loss has become a real issue. With young hooligans bumpin’ their music at all hours of the day, our hearing ability isn’t quite as apt as it was in the quaint days of butter churning and reading with an oil lamp. AsapScience has just released a video that let’s you test how old your ears are. As it stands, hearing is a body function can only degenerate, so take good care of ‘em, you hear? Pun intended.
The Scottish keep the goods times rolling. This week, we have chvches, and electropop trio from Glasgow. They formed in 2011, and have rocked the charts this year. Even the gamers have given their nod of approval. Chvches’ “Guns” will be on the FIFA 14 games soundtrack. “The Mother We Share” and “Lies” are also not to be missed.
Shenanigans on the Interwebz
Fluff is a fact of life. Whether it be recalling a celebrity encounter or padding a resume, “fluffing” is something we all do. However, one must be able to discern fluff and a straight bluff. Recently, a zoo has been found guilty of the latter. They tried to pass off a dog as an “African Lion”. Yes, really.
Food for Thought
We all love Ina Garten. Not is the woman an Emmy Award winning TV host, but she was also a nuclear policy analyst at the White House prior to her Food Network gig. She is just an all around badass. Naturally, so are her recipes. This brussel sprout recipe is solid. It’s fast too. Helps save some minutes, so you have time to go over those nuclear power briefs.
One Way: Crochet
Crochet is the fabric of summer. It may as well be synonymous with music festivals and days spent lounging at the beach. Whether it be a crochet dress or an easy tank, crochet is the way. Soak up the last of summer with warm weather’s favorite knit.
In the Chictopia Office
Miley Cyrus has been making headlines. Whether it be her hair, her twerk werk, or her Harper’s Bazaar spread shot by Terry Richardson, we definitely aren’t in Kansas anymore. Office opinions on Miley’s latest look are all over the place. Some love it, some don’t care for it, some think Hannah Montana is turning over in her grave. Sorry. That was morbid.
What’s your take on Miley’s transformation?
Ta-da! There you have it. The web’s main attractions this week. Thanks for coming along for the ride, and we’ll see you next week.
