• Mixed Minds

    It is absolutely imperative that you check out some of our favorite, more recent collaborations. Marc by Marc Jacobs x Liberty of London Liberty’s iconic floral prints have been splashed on everything from Paige jeans to Bensimon sneakers to an entire collection for Target. This summer, the Brit legend is lending two classic (read: one was designed in 1933!) prints to Marc by Marc Jacobs’ bestselling Pretty Nylon accessories. Quality-wise I would definitely recommend this line- I’ve had the laptop case for nearly three years and it still looks like new. And not to sound like your mom, but it’s also super functional, well-made, and easy to clean. Print-wise, these…

  • Mood Board: The Last Summer

    Not to get all misty-eyed and drama queen-y on you, but in a sense, this is my last summer. I’m not dying of a terminal illness or relocating to Antarctica, but I am preparing to move across the country and take on the real world, where work and school will undoubtedly occupy even my summer months. Soon enough, carefree summers will be a thing of the past and I’ll be left to grapple with East Coast winters and a wardrobe better suited to my future career (see: The Devil Wears Prada) than a weekend at a music festival. So with that being said, my current sartorial mood is an ode…

  • Disclosure: Settle Album Review

    Just in time for the heat of the Summer, when potential for gorgeous memories to be made are at a yearly high, we get a treat from UK’s hottest new dance duo: Disclosure. Made up of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence, Disclosure have brought what has been bubbling in the underground of the UK garage scene for years upon years to pop success in the states and more so in the UK. What exactly is UK garage, you ask? Well, to cut it short and sweet for you lovely readers, it’s a genre of music that has its roots in the house music that came out of the U.S., specifically…

  • Thumping Die Antwoord’s Cookie

    Weird, sexual, quirky, and somewhat dark, the new Die Antwoord video is everything you’d expect from these lovable psychopaths.  Die Antwoord has definitely made a presence as multimedia artists, with the release of a video with every new single, and even a 15 minute short film.  Cookie Thumper isn’t anything spectacular, but it is definitely a solid watch.  Yolandi takes on the frontman role, and Ninja isn’t seen on camera – but he does narrate.  Some people are upset by this, but I see it more as a temporary focus on further developing Yolandi’s personality. Regardless, you should know by now that  Die Antwoord is weird. Watch it. It’s got a…

  • Bitchin’ Babes: Thelma and Louise

    This summer’s fashion is focused around being one bad bitch, am I wrong? With dozens of rebellious street wear brands emerging, acid wash making a come back, and that rockin’ attitude you’ve got at it’s fullest, this look is easier than your aunt Suzi at a New Year’s party. With that said, find your self some hot high waisted cut-off shorts, a tee that let’s everyone know that a bad ass bitch has just walked into the room, and a cool pair of kicks to top it off. You’ve got the look. #WHATABABE. If you don’t have much money to spend, that’s A-OKAY. Why? Because oh yeah, there’s this thing…

  • Baths Album Review: Obsidian

    If you’ve ever been to SXSW, you know the hell that your feet endure. You walk downtown Austin hurriedly to get to the venue where one of your favorite acts is performing. Then, depending on the venue, you wait in line for a damned long period of time.  You know, venues like Stubb’s BBQ , Emo’s East, and The Mohawk. That said, I was lucky enough to find my way into The Mohawk two days in a row to catch some captivating performances.  The Thermals frontman Hutch Harris hopped off the stage to exchange shoulder-to-shoulder love with the crowd in the pit. I witnessed rising British electronic duo Disclosure perform…

  • How To Rebound The RIGHT Way

    So, you and your “boo thang” just broke up, and now you are devastated. All you want is to feel loved, and if your ex can’t give that to you, then you will just find someone to take his spot right? WRONG. At least not right away. After much heartbreak, I have come to the conclusion that I have gained enough knowledge and experience to know how to rebound the RIGHT way (or, at least to some extent). Here are my top 5 tips on how to rebound the right way and not how to rebound right away. Photo Source Tip #1. Do NOT search for a rebound guy. 99% of…

  • Sweet Dates for Cheapskates

      Summer lovin’, had me a blast. Summer lovin’, draining my cash…   Everyone loves a great date, whether it’s with a long-term special someone or a new love interest. But dating on the cheap can be difficult, especially during the summer when the temperatures are rising and seemingly sweet walk in the park can easily turn into a disastrous sweat-fest. The classic dinner-and-a-movie date is nice, but it gets old (and expensive) fast. Here are a few creative ideas that will keep your wallet happy and (hopefully) land you a second date.   – Have a DIY dinner-and-a-movie date with a home cooked meal and Netflix. Bonus points if…

  • The Perks of Being a Vegetarian

    “I’ll have the chicken caesar salad…without the chicken”. So goes my fallback order at nearly every restaurant. And if the salad is no good, I have to stoop down to “I’ll just have a side of fries”. Aside from the occasional ordering woes, being a vegetarian is both awesome and surprisingly easy! Think of the meats- chicken, turkey, beef, pork, and yes, fish- you regularly eat. Now imagine your diet without these foods- it’s not so different, is it? Even if you live for your daily Chick-Fil-A sandwich, going veggie is a great option if you’re trying to lose weight, embrace a healthier diet, or just feel better about the…

  • Summer Menswear: Prints and Pastels

        Here at ANON we tend to neglect men’s fashion from time to time. Okay, all the time… and we would like to make up for that. But it’s summertime, so instead of wearing Chubbies and a pastel sorority event t-shirt, consider buying something that the ladies will actually dig. We know that some of you are lazy when it comes to shopping, and when you do end up in the vicinity of a mall, it’s probably because your mom or girlfriend dragged you out of the house. Others of you may have a desired look, but don’t know where to get the right stuff. Well, we have a…

  • Confessions of a Diet Soda Addict

    There are three things in the food and beverage world that I am honestly addicted to: chocolate, pizza, and diet soda. Coke Zero to be exact. I don’t smoke, do drugs, and I very rarely drink. I exercise regularly and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and because of this, I have justified my addictions to the three best things on this planet for quite some time. Recently however, I have wanted to slowly cut myself off from Coke Zero altogether. I know what you’re thinking, “Coke Zero tastes like unicorns sliding down rainbows on your taste buds, why oh why would anyone want to give that up?” While I’m…

  • The “B” Word

    Boyfriend. It’s the name of a painfully awful Justin Bieber song, a style of jeans that I like to wear on the weekends, and, in my opinion, one of the most sickening, cringe-worthy words in the English language. Boyfriend. Ugh. Photo Source I can’t put my finger on why exactly I hate this word so much. It could be the b-word’s heteronormative connotation  (I once read that straight allies should try to refer to significant others in gender-neutral terms such as ‘partner,’ but to me, that feels just as icky as “boyfriend”). Or, maybe, it’s the annoyingly clichéd girls at my school who will use any excuse to blab about…
