7 things we love…

After an exhausting (but amazing!) weekend at the Budweiser Made in America music festival, we’re back with another roundup that we put together just for you of all the things inspiring us right now, from what we’re reading and eating to what we’re wearing and listening to. Let us know what you think about our picks in the comments—and give us yours, too!

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: DR. MARTENS
They’re been a cult classic for decades… and for good reason. Docs, as they’re more colloquially known, bring together every subculture from emo to punk. We’re super excited to be featuring them on our site for the very first time, and we’re totally digging the iconic 1460s in bold floral for girls and rugged leather for guys.

WHAT WE’RE EATING: COCONUT OIL, HONEY AND SEA SALT POPCORN
Is there anything better or more delicious than a bag of freshly popped popcorn? We think not. Snuggle up on the couch for a movie marathon with a bag of this tasty treat, which is not only super easy to make but perfect for savory and sweet lovers alike with its mix of coconut oil, honey and Himalayan pink sea salt.

WHAT WE’RE READING: DOROTHY MUST DIE BY DANIELLE PAIGE
The Wizard of Oz is one of those stories that seems to pop up in everyday conversation at least once. Think about it. Well, this book spins the story into a whole new tornado with its lead character, Amy Gumm, whose sole mission after being recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked is to—you guessed it—make sure everyone’s favorite Ruby Slippers-wearing heroine, well, dies.

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: CANDIDLY NICOLE
We’ve been fairly obsessed with Nicole Richie ever since she first appeared on The Simple Life with Paris Hilton. And ever since, her various clothing and accessory lines have catapulted her into fashion super stardom (not to mention the fact that she constantly sets beauty trends). But it’s this show, with gems like her dad (yes, the one and only Lionel Richie) trying to teach her how to parallel park, that has us loving her more than ever.

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: THE B612 APP BY LINE
Let’s “face” it… everyone takes selfies. Well, this app, which uses only your phone’s front-facing camera, is out to change them for the good, better, best. You can take a photo by touching any part of the screen and perfect it with 43 different photo filters. Oh, and it doesn’t make a shutter sound, so no one has to know what you’re really up to while you hold your phone in front of your face. Now come on, #letstakeaselfie.

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: ANOTHER STORY BY THE HEAD AND THE HEART
Melancholy. Sweet. Romantic. Endearing. This song is all that and more. You know the quirky love story, Juno? That’s what this indie folk band from Seattle makes us think of every time we play it.

WHERE WE’RE GOING: THE JERSEY SHORE
Summer may be officially over, but we’re pretending it isn’t with one last trip to the beach. Whether you want to party like your favorite (least favorite?) friends from MTV’s now-kaput show or not, the Jersey Shore offers a little something for everyone. Spend a day at Six Flags Great Adventure, take in a minor league baseball game, visit a lighthouse, go out to the clubs, stroll up and down the boardwalk, just relax on the beach… it’s pretty obvious you’re bound to have a good time no matter what.
