Some Monday’s you seem to have it all together and on others, the pieces just don’t fit. You go to bed at a reasonable hour on Sunday, just to wake up at 3:00 AM without being able to fall back to sleep. You’re finally back in REM sleep when your alarm starts buzzing out of control so naturally, you end up hitting the snooze button one too many times. You shake some dry shampoo in your hair, finally get out of your apartment and arrive at the train, only to remember that you left your Ventra card (if you’re in Chicago, like us) who knows where. Needless to say, you’re experiencing the Mondayest Monday ever.
We all know that it sucks when you feel rushed and not together at the start of the week. For some people, losing things is a constant problem, no matter how organized they try to be. Thankfully, the Tile App has got you covered with a genius system to help you track and find your lost items. You can get it for only $24 on amazon, too, which is definitely less money than we’ve dished out on lost train passes.
Today is yet another Moody Monday, and in this post we’re going to explore five ways to improve your Sunday routine so that you can be relaxed and prepared come next Monday. Organization is definitely key, but you don’t have to always do a closet rehaul and create insta worthy snacks for an entire week, in the same day. Much of preparing for a less moodier Monday is being honest with yourself about what you can and cannot accomplish, spending some much needed time with yourself and sticking to your weekly beauty routine.
Once again, MAC Cosmetics is fueling the fire that burns our makeup desires with the release of a brand new app. On the heels of their MAC x Taraji release, alongside the up-and-coming, highly anticipated MAC x Selena collection and new, innovative lipstick formulas, MAC is no stranger to robbing us of our hard earned coins.
Available for both Apple and Android users, the new app will allow makeup lovers and MAC obsessee’s access to exciting membership benefits like previewing and purchasing collections before the masses, review your shopping history (so you can more easily remember that perfect bronzer you need to refill), and allows for easy location of your nearest MAC counter (just in case you were looking for reason #532 to spend money on products you *totally* need). The app’s features also allow you to maintain your MAC Select membership. In short, MAC has created a new way to make buying makeup easier and more fun.
The app is currently available to download and don’t be surprised if it puts you in the mood to run out and buy makeup. It happens to the best of us. Once you’ve played around with it, let us know your thoughts by tweeting us at @WRUWPRGirl!
“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, Sept. 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”→

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.
