Week of 8/11/14
Go See: Life After Beth with Aubrey Plaza!
We love Aubrey Plaza. And lucky for us, the funny lady is back with a new flick, out this weekend. Go see Life After Beth, the hilar and, at times, terrifying romance starring the It Girl and Dane DeHaan. All you need to know is that Plaza plays DeHaan's girlfriend who dies suddenly and comes back to life...as a zombie.
Tune In: FKA Twigs' Debut Album Drops in the US Tomorrow
British trip-hop artist FKA Twigs is finally dropping her official debut album tomorrow. If you're anything like us, then you've been waiting for the rad musician to strut her stuff on a debut album since her first EP came out in 2012. Thankfully you'll only have to wait a few more hours to hear it. Pre-order now!
Eat It Up: National Creamsicle Day
It's still summer! Which means you should be devouring popsicles on the reg. If you haven't been, this Thursday is the perfect excuse. Why? Because August 14 is National Creamsicle Day. We recommend running out to your bodega now to stock up before the rest of the city beats you to it.
Shop This: Rag & Bone at Nordstrom
Nordstrom's Pop-In @ Nordstrom series is starting all over again this week, with a curated selection of rag & bone goodies that you don't want to skip out on. Head over to the site here to shop the collection of booties, ripped boyfriend jeans, and sweaters--or, stop by a Nordstrom in your town to get in on the goodness IRL.
Watch Now: Shark Week is Here
It seems like yesterday that Shark Week 2013 took over our news feeds, but believe it or not the time has come again. That means you should hit up Discovery Channel all week long to catch six more days of Great White Serial Killer, Alien Sharks: Return to the Abyss, Sharksanity, and more wild shark madness. Oh, and you might want to scoop up this awesome swimsuit from the NYLON Shop during a commercial breaks.
