Mens Fall Fashion Tips With Blogger Sage Goldnik

Fall is almost with us, and that means our wardrobes are a-changin’. In the past, we’ve done some serious womenswear coverage, but only a few articles for our male readers (which you can read here). Because dude style is just as awesome and important as womenswear, we caught up with blogger Sage Goldnik of Goldnique to get some advice about what men should be looking for when crafting their fall wardrobes. His style ranges from classic to casual to urban, so regardless of your personal style, his tips will help you come out refined and cool (if that’s what you’re going for, you do you man).

Jewelry Designer Barbara C. Pellegrino’s Crystalline World

I found the magic and beauty of BCP Jewelry after seeing her beautiful creations on some of my favorite YouTube gals. After a long stalking session, I followed her account and have been drooling over her gorgeous pieces ever since. She creates and designs beautiful jewelry using fossils, crystals, and metals. Her pieces are bold but gentle, feminine but strong. I absolutely adore her jewelry and her pieces range from the $20 range into the hundreds, so there’s something for everyone. I reached out to Barbara to talk about crystal magic, jewelry-making, and her experience using social media for her business.

Why Feelings Twitter Is The Most Profound Place On The Internet

Poetry has its roots deep in human history. Initially created as a way to orally remember and share stories, poetry has long been a staple of human interaction and community building. The concept of shared experience through recorded history, however, is one that doesn’t apply only to the cave paintings and story circles of the past. In the digital age, where stories, writing, and art can be quickly shared with thousands at the click of a button, one social platform has evolved into a story sharing platform so powerful it is impacting thousands of lives daily.

K. Flay Interview – Vinyl Mag

When you think “female rapper,” I’m sure you think of women along the lines of Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj. What you might not think of is a brown haired, punk rock chick with well-refined music tastes who has been performing on Vans Warped Tour for the last few months.

Up and coming rap artist K. Flay left her major label last fall and released her newest album, “Life As A Dog,” independently earlier this year. I had the chance to see her incredible set at the Atlanta date of Warped Tour last week, and I am officially in love. She’s adorable, full of energy, and ready for her takeover. We spoke with her about her music and her experience on Warped Tour and trust us, you’re gonna love her.
