Effortless style is easy to have during the warmer seasons. Mostly because you can just put on a short dress paired with some cute flats and you’re good to go. Emma Watson put the trendy in casual while she was shopping in New York City this week. Love her pairing of the drawstring pants, a simple striped tee and cardigan. Those soft yellow loafers just add to this actress’s effortless style.

It’s spring! Let’s rejoice by busting out that denim dress we’ve been dying to wear. Aside from its epic wearability, denim is one of the biggest trends this season. It’s the one material that keeps revamping itself, fueling our obsession with new prints, washes and construction. And of course it can be paired with almost anything. I am obsessed with Alexa Chung’s pairing of the combat jacket and denim dress. Chic with a grunge twist!

Summer blockbuster season is almost upon us and you’re probably just as stoked as I am for a whole new crop of movies to devour. But when it comes to movie fashions, summer blockbusters tend to be big on explosions and less on couture. There’s always just a movie or two each year that leaves the audience with a big sartorial impact. Most people are betting on The Great Gatsby to have the biggest style impact, but just because it has the most fashion hype doesn’t mean it will be this year’s most fashionable film.
So here are the movies of 2013 that you need to keep you eyes on for the film’s fashion and sense of style.
The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famed novel is a rite of passage in any high school english classroom. This novel has made its way to the silver screen before but it is Baz Luhrmann’s super stylized adaptation that has us most excited, making it one of the most anticipated films of the year. The Roaring Twenties was a period of high fashion, artistic expression, crazy parties, and excess. No wonder it’s still a popular period for fashion magazines to take editorial inspiration from, and besides everyone loves a good flapper dress. Although this period piece has the most hype (check out Carey Mulligan’s Vogue cover), the ’20s inspiration might have already reached its peak during the Spring/Summer 2012 runways. Perhaps the film will revitalize last year’s trend and keep it alive.
Not even joking, this is probably the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. This tiny Namaqua Rain Frog, or Breviceps namaquensis, makes the most adorable little squeals. The frog is found on the sandy shores and dry tropical regions of South Africa.
Guys, take note. This dude celebrated Valentine’s Day by handing out 20 roses to strangers on the street, in a superhero costume no less. “Whenever I see a girl walking along or sitting by herself, I’m going to ride up to her and give her a rose and ride away. I’m not going to say anything. Hopefully I can make some girl smile.”
Not only did he make all these girls smile (except one Debbie Downer), I’m pretty sure he’s making everyone watching the video smile too. [Chett DeLong]
Whether you’re a Valentine’s Day lover or hater, you should see everyday as an opportunity to prank someone. This dude’s significant other decided to sending him a very exuberant singing gram. That’s the way to do Valentine’s Day right.
Being single on Valentine’s Day can be a little lonely so one prankster from RobBlissCreative decided to play a little trick on movie goers. He dressed as cupid and approached a couple women with a generic survey. While they were answering, an accomplice wrote a quick personalized poem with their answers. Then, Cupid recited the poems and asked each woman to kiss him. Most of them gave them a quick peck on the cheek but one went to town with le tongue. Is it a match made in heaven?
I always question how sloths survived the hardships of evolution. All the same, I really respect their perseverance because they’re ridiculous creatures in the best way. I’ve seen my fair share of sloth videos but I think this one of baby sloths in a bucket is by far the best yet. Prepare to die of cuteness.
It’s funny that Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough couldn’t stop laughing during our interview with them, because the movie they were promoting is actually pretty serious. In Safe Haven, a young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her [play sinister music].
Hough got a bad case of the giggle fits (or the dreaded giggle loop) during the whole interview, let us count the ways: While talking about her personal ‘dark’ side, after a potential “that’s what she said” joke and when she started talking about her “off the grid” name, Laquisha.
“Sorry for my laughing fit,” she said at the end of the interview. “Didn’t mean for that to happen.”
“Are you going to be able to cut any of that?” Duhamel laughed.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more! Safe Haven is in theatres Feb. 14 so you can see it with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day.
And while most of us absolutely hate those people (because they somehow end up making it pretty far and winning more money than they deserve to), Leonard Cooper was different. He was doing pretty well on this episode of Jeorpardy, but he reached the final round and didn’t know the answer.
So what did he do? He came out with possibly the best trivia answer in the history of game shows. Watch the video to hear what he has to say about which American president was the Supreme Allied Commander for the Forces invading Europe.
So many YouTubers are posting videos of their personalized “Harlem Shake” that I have no words to describe the booty-shaking madness anymore. But there’s a special place in my heart for this one by Matt and Kim, not only because I’m in love with them but because I’m going to their concert this weekend so now I’m extra stoked.
Please do this on Saturday, kay Matt and Kim? Thanks.
According to Wikipedia (the most legit source of the internet…) “The Harlem Shake” was originally called the albee and started in Harlem around 1981. The dance became mainstream in 2001 when G-Dep featured it in his music video “Let’s Get It.”
If you’re still not sure how or why the “krazy kids” are doing the “Harlem Shake,” leave it to dance instructor Professor Lock on mahalodotcom.

The Real Slim Shady is coming back. Eminem has just announced that he will be releasing his eighth studio album.
“We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013,” Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg told BillBoard.“He’s been working on it for some time. It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when. We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”
Rumours surrounding the rapper’s next album started in October when Eminem’s merch store starting selling a snapback hat listing the years of his solo albums, which included 2013.
This is obviously exciting news. So much so, that the Grade 6 version of me (who was always moody btw) would be all over this album.
So in celebration, here’s my favourite Eminem song!!!
Even if you deny it, we know you have a special, hidden place in your heart for boy bands… I mean, who can deny the utter power of B44 and their spiky hair? In this episode of Talking Sh*t we go on all about boy bands, and not just the new ones either — we go way back to the classics including Backstreet Boys, N Sync and 98 Degrees.
Jimmy Kimmel sat down to talk with kids about some very serious topics: Driving and money. Turns out, kids have absolutely no perspective of age, guessing that most people get their licences in their 40s, 50s and 60s. One kid even guessed tenty-eight (108).
When the late night host asked them what they would do with a million dollars, most of the kids opted to buy selfish big ticket items like big screen TVs and funhouses (with bouncy houses inside). Cutest moment goes to the kid at the end who wants to invest his money in his children and future wife, as well as charity.
A couple days ago some teenagers demonstrated the “Harlem Shake,” only reinforcing that I really don’t want to know what guys do in their free time. YouTuber abletonmatt was so inspired by their dancing he decided to upload his own version of Baauer’s “Harlem Shake,” which basically involves him doing the exact opposite of the rowdy teenagers, namely, he does absolutely nothing.
Imagine if you were chilling out on a bench at the mall when two guys start talking sketchily around you about a supposed drug deal. “You want some pot?” one of them asks. “It’s grade-A, homegrown.” Just when you think he’s going to reach into his bag for the drugs and cops are going to burst through the windows to cuff anyone in a mile radius, he pulls out a cooking pot.
You know, sometimes finding cheap teflon pots is so tough you have to go to the underground guys…
