“There’s always time. If you are passionate about something, you will make the time. It’s kind of like dating. Girls are always like ‘well, why didn’t he call me?’ If he wanted to see you, he would make the time. If you want to do something, you’ll make the time!” — Lily Duevel
What’s black and green and drips old money all over? It’s the Slytherin House of course, and on this week’s edition of our Harry Potter themed back to school guide, we’re partying at the Slytherin House. Based off of our logic fantasy, we believe that Slytherin hosted all the best parties and the “Room of Requirement,” was used solely to throw parties that prefects couldn’t find. Having a place to show off your new dress and heels is a need right? Oh and if this is ever an excuse to raid your mother’s closet for her fur coat, then this would be it — just be sure to ask nicely! Go to the jump to see what outfit we’ve pulled together for all of you dark souled night owls. Continue reading “Own The Night: Slytherin Back To School Party Edition”→
After taking New York Fashion Week by storm in February, Rihanna has moved on to bigger and better in the most Rihanna way possible. Next week, Rihanna will jetset to Paris to stage a runway show for the spring 2017 collection of FentyxPuma, during Paris Fashion Week. “It’s a dream for me to be able to present my second collection of Fenty Puma by Rihanna in Paris,” said Rihanna of the upcoming show. “I approached this season very differently and felt the theme and concept was best suited for one of my favorite cities, Paris.” The show will take place on Wednesday, Sep. 28 and will stage two showings of the second athleisure collection for Puma at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m., local time. Even more exciting and in true Rihanna fashion, is the fact that the show promises to “be very different from a traditional runway format.” And for those who may experience a lost invitation in the mail (it happens to the best of us), the event will also be live-streamed exclusively on Tidal and will be available to those without subscriptions, as well.
It’s another exciting day in the beauty world, with Kylie Jenner’s most recent Snapchat announcement. In true Kylie fashion, the youngest Jenner sister took to Snap to announce her newest Kyliner shades, which are beyond perfect for fall. The two newest shades are Bronze, a chestnut brown color (not to be confused with Dark Bronze, which came with Kylie’s limited edition birthday release) and Chameleon, a gorgeous metallic plum color. Similar to Kylie’s original Kyliner shades, less daring brown and black colors, Bronze and Chameleon will come in full kits with a pencil eyeliner, a gel creme liner and an angled brush. Based on the swatches seen on Snapchat, you’ll definitely want to add these two fresh colors to your collection for fall.
Set your alarms and get your credit cards ready, now, because Bronze and Chameleon go on sale on Friday, Sep. 23 at 1 p.m PT. for $36 and similar to previous launches, we expect them to go fast. However, Kylie did mention the possibility of a special giveaway for her app subscribers so stay tuned for that! To see the swatches in full, keep scrolling.

In case you missed it, Anastasia Beverly Hills is coming out with a new, special edition highlighting palette for the fall and winter seasons. While ABH is well known for its affordable Glow Kits, which saw summer launches of Moonchild and Sweets, the cosmetics queen is at it again with a specialized holiday themed highlighting kit. Get ready to shimmer on all of your friends at every single holiday party this season because your highlight will definitely be brighter than the future of the guy who’s yet to text you back.
While the launch date of the Ultimate Glow Kit has yet to be announced, we do know that it will be released some time in October and will include six specialized shades that are suitable for all skin tones, as revealed by Claudia Soare, the president of Anastasia Beverly Hills on Snapchat. “Snow,” is a pearly white hue, ideal for paler complexions. However, a blue reflect was added to the shade so that it wouldn’t look to silvery on skin. “Golden Dawn” will provide a yellow-gold highlight while “Sunray” and “Amber Gold” are both peachy champagne shades. Finally, “Golden Dawn” and “Hot Sand”, both which will certainly pop against darker complexions, look like literal gold against the skin. No matter which shades you fancy, there’s something in this palette that will look absolutely fantastic and radiant on everyone. And for those who may be weary against spending $45 on a palette that may not consist of shades that are all super flattering on all complexions, Claudia suggests mixing colors or using the colors, that you don’t like as highlighters, as eyeshadows or mixing them with your blush. Keep scrolling below for swatches and a closer look at the collection. Continue reading “Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Latest Glow Kit Will Give You the Perfect Holiday Highlight”→
It’s another Moody Monday and we’re looking fondly moodily back on our college days. Some of us fall more left than right on the introvert to extrovert spectrum and college life is bound to mess with your chill zone. We’re including a few life saving tips that we wish we knew about (seriously hangovers suck), some tricks to help with that noisy dorm mate, and we have major news a little birdy told us about… Continue reading “The WRUW Girl’s Guide to Moody Monday’s: 05 (College Edition)”→
Outside of the regular most sought out after parties, like Alexander Wang’s, one of the biggest parties to attend, this season, was Refinery29’s interactive exhibition. The exhibit, which consisted of a conceptualized “funhouse” with 29 rooms of majorly insta-worthy immersive installations, was open to the public and included a few for cause rooms, from Adrian Grenier’s Lonely Whale Foundation and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. Referred to as a “Whimsical Wonderland,” the exhibitions also included a room where you could jump into a ball pit of pandas — we literally can’t even, experience virtual realities viva Google’s Tilt Brush, and even dance on an LED reactive dance floor brought to you by a Tinashe and Phhhoto collaboration.
In the Harry Potter series, two characters stood out like no other representing the House of Ravenclaw. Those are Cho Chang, played by Katie Leung, and the wacky Luna Lovegood, played by Evanna Lynch. During our research, we found that Cho Chang was often reduced to nothing more than just being “Harry Potter’s love interest.” Um…Cho Chang was way cooler than that! Not only was she a seeker on her Quidditch team but she also one of the few brave Ravenclaw’s who joined Dumbledore’s army. Clearly, much more relevant outside of her boyfriend. However, I digress. This is our back to school Harry Potter style series, after all, and we’re here to bring you several items that a Ravenclaw witch or their identifying muggle might want in their wardrobe.
Students of the Ravenclaw House are known for their “wit, learning, and wisdom”, which is a nice way of saying they’re the ones you want to copy your notes off of. They most likely know all the organizational spells to a T and you probably won’t be seeing any wrinkles in their gowns either. When it comes to the Cho Chang’s of Ravenclaw think blazers, structured shirts, bags, and studious glasses. Luna Lovegood’s wacky sense of style is almost Marc by Marc Jacobsesque with her pink tweed and out there glasses. In the end both girls know how to work it and so do you!Continue reading “Harry Potter Back To School Style: Ravenclaw Edition”→
We don’t do email well—that is, if we even do it at all. Maybe it’s just that email feels like a prehistoric practice to us, some hilarious relic of the past. While our parents were still getting motion sickness from the speed of email, we had already moved on to IMing. Then to texting. Then Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tinder, Bumble . . . you get the point. Sure, we might be rich in likes and followers, but it’s starting to feel like the digital world has robbed us of the patience, skill, and social deftness to craft a simple piece of writing. Excuse me while I get all Carrie Bradshaw for a moment, but when did our baseline level of decorum completely flatline?Continue reading “Missed Manners: A Millennial’s Guide to Email Etiquette”→
