Today one of my fave indie “It” girls turns 28! Kirsten Dunst has starred in some of my favorite movies (Spider-Man, Elizabethtown and The Virgin Suicides, to name a few) and she’s totally one of my major girl crushes. I’ve saved that issue of Seventeen for about 8 years, just sayin’! Anyway, Happy Birthday, KiKi! Totes bummed that you’re not going to be in the Spidey reboot, but I’m looking forward to see what new projects you come out with!
I came across these beautiful series of photographs called Dancers Among Us by photographer Jordan Matter. The photographs have the best backdrop for these talented dancers: New York City. Matter describes that the way people were fascinated by his amazing dancers “One man in the subway was so transfixed by watching a dancer continuously jump high into the air and hold a running pose that he missed his train, cursed to the heavens, and ran outside to catch a cab.” You can check out more of these photographs at Jordan Matters website. I’m inspired to sashay across Central Park tonight, who’s coming with me?
Today was an awesome morning! It’s absolutely gorgeous outside, Jen brought muffins for morning meeting, and we were on the TODAY SHOW again! They did a piece on hot summer trends, and seriously half the products were from FredFlare. Awesome, right??? They featured our picnic table condiment set, Snoopy sno-cone machine, mini foosball table, and mini air hockey table.
I love everything that rolls through this warehouse, but nothing makes me happier than when other people love it all too. So put a smile on a Lauren, and get your summer goodies! Insider tip: Use the word “wow” at checkout to get 30% off your entire purchase. Bonus round! Summer just got even better…
Finally the wait is over! The Christina Aguilera video for “Not Myself Tonight” that has created so much buzz has finally premiered! Christina’s dominatrix side comes out a little in a Lady Gaga inspired look. Christina says, “I think I’m even a more sexual Christina.” Xtina has gone a long long way from “Genie in a Bottle.” What do you guys think of this new side of Christina? Does it work for her?
I can’t help it, I just get SO excited as April becomes May and the promise of amazing weather sparkles in the distance so we are celebrating this weekend with a 30% OFF special. Simply enter discount code “WOW” at checkout and you’ll save 30% SITEWIDE. (“WOW” is “MOM” spelled upside down, a good friend of mine used to say so this is a little nod to her. JenMod, how u doin??) Don’t forget to checkout our our Mother’s Day shop. There’s still time to get her something special before May 9th! Hope you all have an AWESOME day!
Do you ever get home after a long day of work and think “What the eff should I make for dinner?” A difficult decision, no doubt, but one that’s been made a lot easier thanks to a new website aptly titled What the F*** Should I Make For Dinner? Visit this hilarious (and somewhat NSFW) site to choose from both vegetarian and meat-eater options that will have your mouth watering all day long! You can thank me later.

**HOLD HER PURSE JUST BEING IN CHURCH GOING, “YES LORD” ALERTZ**This week the Top Modz fly to Auckland New Zealand. Please don’t ever change the tiny pictures sitting in the plane windows, ANTM. Luxurious wasn’t the first word that came to mind when we saw the First Class seats. André Leon Talley called them “Little Victorian Coffins” on the Martha Stewart Show. Indeed they were!
Okay, I really try not to post too many videos… But I just ran across the trailer for “Beastly”, which I have been waiting for, for like ever! You know, anything with Mary-Kate Olsen is something worth waiting for. ESPECIALLY when she’s an insane, sexy, wild WITCH! This movie is not only Mar-Kate’d but also Neil Patrick Harris’d. YES, OH YES, OH YES! Watch and tell me what you think.
As I write this, I realize almost all of my blogs have to do with the reasons I love New York. Well, um… here’s another one!! (Really though, can you blame me?) Right now it’s one of my favorite times of the year in New York. And not just for the obvious reasons, like everything in the parks blooming, but because it’s time for the Tribeca Film Festival!
Working for the Festival last year was the first job I ever had in New York, and it holds a very special place in my heart. Naturally, I was totally thrilled when they asked me back this year. Making new friends, random celebrity sightings, and movies GALORE, the Festival is always an amazing time. Since I’ve been working both here and there, I haven’t had a chance to see anything yet, but I’ve got big movie plans for Friday! If you live in New York, I suggest you do too. Check out the schedule here, and holler atcha girl on the red carpet.
