August IS OVER


This month has had it all. The Olympics, the overturning of Brendan Dassey's conviction, the end of Gawker and the announcement of an incredibly ill advised Lost Boys reboot which I am wholeheartedly against. But in the midst of all of that here is August's roundup of everything you might have missed.

PRETTIEST THING
So I was reading this Vanity Fair article (HERE)  about Smith and Cult beauty and I fell in love. It's all so gorgeous and kinda weird. Anywho this nail varnish is called Gay Ponies Dancing in the Snow so obviously it's a must!
