One Year Later, We’re Still Boston Strong

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since our city was turned inside out by the senseless act of terror at the Boston Marathon. Today, we remember all of those affected and remind ourselves that Boston is just as strong, proud, and brave as ever.

Over the next week, along with our friends at Alex and Ani, we’ll be showing our support by collecting virtual cheers through Thunderclap.it. And we’d love for you to join in. It costs nothing, but means a lot. On the morning of Marathon Monday, these cheers will automatically be sent from the social media accounts of every single one of you who joins in with us.

Simply visit our Thunderclap page here and link your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. Then, spread the word and help us show the world that we are all still Boston Strong.

– Steve Davis, Chief Executive Officer

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

As fans of all things fashionable and funny, we’re counting down the days until The Other Woman premieres.

3. These sneak-peek quotes have us expecting to laugh nonstop.

4. The characters in this flick were styled by Patricia Field (you know, of Sex and the City fame?). Fashion at its finest, folks. 

5. Plus, these lucky ladies got to film at The Cove Atlantis. So. Jealous.

First Track from Lana Del Rey’s Much-Anticipated Album Drops

The first official track off Lana Del Rey’s anxiously awaited album, Ultraviolence, has been released. “West Coast” has that velvety, brooding sound the crooner is known for, and it seems to be the perfect tune to heighten any and all anticipation of her forthcoming record. But there’s more: The new single surfaced along with a looped, black-and-white video of Del Rey spinning around on a beach with the same actor from her ”Born to Die” and “Blue Jeans” videos (a taste of what’s to come, perhaps?).

To say I’m counting the days until the full album drops, well – that would be an understatement. Just watch and listen to the video here to see what the hype is all about.

5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed

the_retweet

‪@hootsuite: We’ve heard of the Starks and Lannisters, but what about House Twitter and House Facebook? ‪http://ow.ly/vx2sn  ‪http://ow.ly/vx2ur 
We’re never choosing sides in that game.

‪@ChaleneJohnson: If you want to adopt the habits of highly fit people, the most important thing you can start doing today is just drinking more water.
Good advice. We hear stocking your drawers with yoga pants helps, too.

@BostonDotCom: Have you taken advantage of #FreeConeDay? http://bo.st/PSdooV
Is that a serious question? It’s ice cream we don’t have to pay for.

‪@RL_Stine: There have been many developers of the spork. Some tried to market it as a foon. But the name never caught on. #SporkFacts
We pity the foon.

‪@HuffingtonPost: Um, this is really weird, Kim Kardashian. Really weird indeed. ‪http://huff.to/1hVjI9K 
Hmm… we tried, but it seems we’re officially immune to being surprised by a Kardashian.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

No one knows color like Pantone. So we’re obviously banking on its spring color picks to fill our closet.

1. Radiant Orchid was named 2014 Color of the Year, but we have a feeling we’ll be wearing it straight through 2015.

2. Forget a pop of yellow. Freesia is worth wearing all over.

3. Celosia Orange–hued lipstick? It’s at the top of our makeup must-have list.

4. We’re adding some flavor to our wardrobe with a little Cayenne this season.

5. Heels. Dresses. Jackets. We’ll take them all in Dazzling Blue, please.

JLaw Lands the Cover of Martha Stewart Weddings

Could it be? Did Jennifer Lawrence and boyfriend Nicholas Hoult secretly elope and not tell anyone besides Martha Stewart? Sadly, no. But the Hunger Games star is featured on the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.

JLaw’s brother, Blaine, got married this past October, and Martha Stewart Weddings caught the nuptials on camera. Dressed in flowing ivory J.Crew gowns, the actress and ten other bridesmaids surround her new sister-in-law on the magazine’s cover.  Just don’t scan the page too fast, or you might miss her looking – dare I say it – normal.
