get to know the brains behind the mag.

by kimberly larco

We'd like to think we're your go-to destination for the newest bands, fantasty-fulfilling fashion, and all those rad beauty looks that you have been meaning to try. And that our website is the place you can find out about all the weird, amazing happenings on the internet—from that badass new superhero girl gang to Beyoncé's new Fifty Shades of Grey remixes. And while you may know some of our editors, we thought we'd formally introduce ourselves via our favorite social media platform, Instagram.
