Days after Nicole Richie debuted her lilac locks, Ireland Baldwin decided to change-up her hair too! Ireland, who a few months back went platinum blonde, asked colorist Justin Andersson to make the switch! Both celebrities shared their new looks with the world on Twitter and Instagram. What do you think of a lilac hair trend? With Kelly Osbourne, Ireland, and Nicole rocking it, it looks like purple hair is here to stay!
Dominique Ansel in NYC has been known for making the most incredible desserts. He first introduced the Cronut to the world- a croissant and donut combination. The hype was built around Cronuts, as each morning an amusement-park style line formed outside the bakery of hungry individuals hoping to get their hands on one. For the unlucky people who still haven’t had one (like me), you can order them off of Craigslist for a small price of close to $50!
But wait, who needs Cronuts anymore when there is something even more exciting being offered by the Bakery. This afternoon Dominique Ansel introduced its latest creation through Instagram: the Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot. This is a shot of milk in a chocolate chip cookie glass. The cookies will debut at the SXSW Festival on March 9th and I can already tell will be quite the hit. And for all you New Yorkers, when Ansel was asked if he would be rolling out the cookie shots at his SoHo bakery, he said “We’ll see!”

This is my new favorite snack when I’m sitting in bed watching a movie and I’m craving something sweet. The best part of it all is that it takes 5 minutes to make! I present to you: S’mores Dip.
Step 1: Melt a bowl of chocolate chips in a saucepan.
Step 2: Add 2 tablespoons of milk.
Step 3: Pout the mixture into a dish. Cover your dish with marshmallows.
Step 4: Place your dish into the preheated oven for 2-3 minutes, or until the marshmallow tops are toasted to perfection.
Step 5: Break up some graham cracker pieces to scoop up your s’mores dip and voila! Enjoy!

It is not everyday that I find out about a clothing company through Instagram, but that’s just where I scrolled upon Triangl Swimwear. The Australian company makes super trendy, fitted bikinis and undergarments.
The Triangl Underware is really soft and comes in two styles: ‘Isabel’ and ‘Lucie.”Lucie’ ($59) is the underwire balconette bra design, whereas the ‘Isabel’ ($49) features a soft cup bra in a triangle design. They come in 5-6 colours each and both sets come with hipster briefs.
The Triangl bathing suits are made out of neoprene- a scuba/wet-suit material that is super flattering. It is really thick and doesn’t become sheer in the water. My favorite out of all the styles is the classic triangle shape bikini top that comes with natural padding and adds a subtle but lifted effect. The set of top and bottom is $79.
I am in love with these bathing suits/ undergarments and cannot wait to order one for myself. Many of my friends have them and they are incredibly flattering to all body types. I will probably order the mint color bikini, because mint is vibrant and neon for the summer beach.
So unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few weeks, or don’t have an Instagram account, you probably know that Oreo recently released two new flavors of their famous cookie: Cookie Dough and Marshmallow Crispy. I was clearly VERY excited upon hearing about this, considering raw cookie dough is one of my favorite things in the world.
During one of my free periods at school, I rushed to D’Agostinos on Lexington to satisfy my cookie craving. There was some question as to whether or not I would find these special Oreos, because many supermarkets do not carry them. As I rounded the corner and turned down the Cookie Aisle, I found stacks of every type of Oreo imaginable: Birthday Cake, Vanilla, Peanut Butter, and, of course, Cookie Dough. They were lying there in all their glory. I swear a spotlight was shining right on them. They were so beautiful… I had to buy three packages before I could be on my merry way. Now for my review of the mysterious, hyped up COOKIE DOUGH OREO! Granted, I was expecting a lot. I was basically expecting homemade cookie dough batter to greet me in between the perfect chocolate cookie sandwich that is an Oreo. This wasn’t quite the case. The filling itself tasted more like toffee rather than cookie dough batter, but nevertheless it was still pretty darn good!
I am weirdly obsessed with this man and his beard. He has devoted a Tumblr, Instagram account, and Youtube channel all to his love of stuffing different things in his facial hair. Check out a few of my favorite Will It Beard pictures below from his tumblr.
