Girl Crush: Go-Go-Gomez
Written by: WhyDid | Celebrity Style

selena gomez fashionOnce a wizard of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez has ditched her Disney darling act as most recently showcased in the raunchy film, Spring Breakers.  Sure she caught a temporary case of Bieber fever, but it seems Ms. Gomez is growing up and moving on.  It’s alright, girl.  We’ve all made mistakes.  If we looked back at at my boyfriend at twenty, I’d be a little red faced too.  Along with her dating and career choices, her style is also evolving and with her glossy locks, long legs, and girl next door (in your dreams) looks, she’s setting herself up to be a real red carpet darling.  Not one to shy away from a bikini or midriff baring top (clearly, she spent two hours on the big screen in not much else), Gomez has captured the perfect mix between young woman and youthful age appropriateness- unlike some of her tween trainwreck graduates.  To get Gomez’s enviable style, grab some key pieces below and start doing some sit ups, like right now.

1. Vince Leather Hi Lo Tee, 2. Jimmy Choo Anouk Patent Leather Shoes, 3. bumble and bumble Shine On Finishing Spray, 4. Smith’s Rosebud Salve, 5. Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer SPF 30, 6. Kimchi Blue Pinup Bustie Top, 7. Vix Angola Bikini Top and Bottom, 8.Dolce & Gabbana Mock Tortoise Gold Tone Cat Eye Sunglasses, 9. Blank Denim Distressed Skinny Jeans, 10. Jules Smith Infinity Hoops, 11. Billabong Invert Camo T-Shirt, 12. Forever 21 Mock Pocket Mini Skirt, 13. Supra Vaider Sneakers

 Oh- and I’m not ashamed to admit her new single is on repeat:

Why Did or Why Don’t: Let It Burn
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

break up skywritingStop me if you’ve heard this one before: Boy meets girl.  Boy and girl fall in love.  Boy and girl break up.  Girl proceeds to ruin boy’s life.  They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… and I happen to know there’s a bit of truth to that.  Not that I’ve ever gone all Carrie Underwood on anyone… well, except that one time, but in this day and age, breakups and their pretty personal details have become quite public.

For instance, the adorable Selena Gomez stopped by David Letterman this week where she was promoting Spring Breakers and dropping bombs on Justin Bieber.  During the interview, Gomez  points out something she and Letterman happen to have in common and it’s a real zinger.  She delivers the line so subtly and sweetly that it’s hard not to want to give her daps, but is dissing your ex publicly awesome or just kind of immature?

Now, I’m no Wizard of Waverly Place, but clearly, I have a very public vehicle for the purpose of spot blowing.  Fortunately for the past loves of my life, I have an almost incomprehensible amount of restraint when it comes to dishing out the deets of what exactly went down during our time together.  (You’re all very welcome).  However, there are certainly times I have most definitely wanted to lay the story perfectly straight for my love life spectators and perhaps help a sister out in the process.  As a matter of fact, my ex’s ex (we following that?) is the producer for a very popular morning radio show.  While she and her cohorts did make some commentary regarding her breakup (at which point I received some pretty unpleasant Tweets from their fans), the references were somewhat vague.  Looking back, I wish she’d just been blunt about the level of douchedom that went down or that I had just gone ahead and called into the show myself.  Sure would have saved me some time.

So what do we think?  Acceptable to ruin someone’s day publicly?  Or totally tacky?

It’s not me, it’s you.

xx,

Why Did You Wear That: Let’s Make Beautiful Music Together

american music awards red carpetAnother year, another round of award shows doling out little metal trophies to folks who may or may not deserve them. But the fun is not in who wins what as much as it is in who wears what.  So, let the self tanner application, lapses in style judgement, and wardrobe malfunctions begin and let’s kick things off with last night’s American Music Awards.

While it’s been a while since I’ve tuned in, some things remain exactly as they did a year ago… and beyond.  These include but are not limited to:

  • They’re still letting Chris Brown perform.  Why they even let him out of his cage, I’ll never know, but this white girl won’t be dancing like it’s her birthday when his songs come on.  Ever.
  • Jenny McCarthy is still hot.
  • You still can’t touch MC Hammer.
  • Christina Aguilera still wears leotards when she probably shouldn’t (but she can still sing like nobody’s business, so we’ll give her a pass).
  • Pitbull is still making songs that don’t make any logical sense in English or Spanish.
  • Crowding the stage with babes in bedazzled bustiers will still cover up any bad performance.
  • Taylor Swift is still singing about some boy who did her wrong in something that resembles a bad prom dress.
  • Nicki Minaj is still in need of a time out.
  • Pink could still kick your ass.
  • No Doubt is still as rad as ever.

And while it’s nice to have a bit of stability in your life, I’m a little concerned about America’s choices in music.  Perhaps that’s a better indicator of the state of our nation?  One thing that does seem to be changing is Justin Bieber’s voice (anyone else catch that?) which was quite clear after hearing him dedicate his win to the “haters” (he realizes he’s an eighteen year old 98lb white kid, right?).  So, I decided I was going to come up with my own award categories that seem much, much more important:

Best Legs:

Color of the Evening:

 Most in Need of a New Hairstyle:

nicki minaj carrie underwood karmin hair amaSo, let’s step it up, folks.  We’ll consider this a “warm up.”  A “rehearsal” if you will.  Last time I checked, which was just now, my socks are still on, so no one particularly blew me away.  Bring on the crazy… I’ve gotta have something to write about.

xx,

How To Tuesday: The Perfect Boyfriend T-shirt (minus the boyfriend)

justin bieber boyfriendI can help you do a lot of things… one of which is make stuff.  However, there are a few things that I can not do – like materialize the perfect boyfriend (does that even exist?).  So, until I get my masters degree in wizardry, you’re just going to have to settle for making the perfect boyfriend t-shirt (sans boyfriend).  And isn’t that better anyway?

So here’s all you need to get that comfy, lived  in t-shirt look/feel:

  • t-shirt
  • scissors
  • salt (1 cup)
  • sandpaper
  • a large pot
  • water
  • stove

Now, remember that the more you wash your t-shirt (with fabric softener), the softer and more worn it will become.  Like all good relationships, it takes time.  This is merely a method to jumpstart the process:

Perhaps your sexy new boyfriend tee will atrract your next boyfriend?  Meh.  So what wizadry shall we partake in next week?

Weekend Playlist: Make a Run For It
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

ipod running playlistAfter a truly bullshitty day, a head clearing, sweat inducing run is one of the only things (other than a cool glass of wine) that helps me to unwind.  And rather than lay day on the Dr.’s couch and spill all my problems, I run.  Running is my therapy.  While it may not be as medically effective, it’s a lot cheaper.  Plus, when did you ever lose weight laying on a couch?

My highschool gym teacher is scoffing somewhere.  I did, afterall, convince her that crunches were only making my stomach bigger.  So, the thought of me exerting myself voluntarily is probably mind boggling.  I am well aware that 90% of the population would probably rather push a burning boulder of poo up a hill both ways before running… on purpose.  The hardest part of running is putting on your sneakers and hitting the pavement (or treadmill).  I certainly can’t make that part any easier, but a booty shaking playlist will most certainly help (and that I can do).

And yes, there is a little Bieber in the mix.  If that’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

xx,

WhyDid
