About 400 emails come through my inbox every day, and I’m not going to lie – most get deleted. That being said, I read each and every email I get because I am perpetually anxious about missing something awesome. This means: many PR fails. Which I outwardly loathe, but secretly covet.
I love getting emails that say things like…
“Orthopedic Sandals are Trending as Chic”
There are so very many things wrong with this, I hardly know where to begin. Let’s just make a beeline for “trending as chic” because what is that, even? What the hell does “trending as chic” look like? Something is chic, or something is not chic. I’m not sure “chic” is as dynamic and versatile a label as is assumed, here, PRpeeps.
A really good dress with really good shoes and a really good coat? Chic.
Debbie Harry? Chic as f@#*.
Orthopedic sandals? Oh, they’re trending as chic, so they’re chic right now, but later I’m not sure they’re going to be so chic, you know? Chic.
Wait… Does that also make orthopedic sandals trendy, by association?
I think I am going to have to print this email out just so I can crumple it up and throw it in the garbage.
On to the links!
All of a sudden, there’s nothing I need more than a stamp with my address and name in the shape of an animal from Native Bear. (Ahhh, they have a bull! I need, I need…)
Awesome and artistic photographs of ballet performers.
Please self-tan instead of baking away in the sun, thanks! For those of you who already self-tan, this little Magic Eraser-looking thing called the Bronze Buffer promises to buff out any streaks you might acquire from application!
I think we could all take a style lesson or two from the fashion life of Geri Haliwell, aka Ginger Spice.
Remember Cherry Dollface? She’s got a new pin-up makeup tutorial that uses all drugstore products!
I posted this on our Facebook earlier this week, but I’m torn about Chloë Grace Moretz in the September issue of Glamour! I’m not sure if I love or am kind of confused by the photos..? Just me?
What do you think?
If you want to feel like a mega-gangster while cruising in your beater car this summer, roll down the partially-broken window and crank up your blown-out bass – this song is about to rock the neighborhood.
Mature content warning: If you haven’t seen the video for Flo-Rida & Pitbull’s new song, “I Can’t Believe It” – you have been missing everything.
(Thanks for this, Alex. My life will never be the same!)
Also managed to come across this very NSFW Lady Gaga video for “The Abramovic Method“… Let me know if you have any idea what’s going on here.
