    The News: Camera App

    Ever wish you could be Jeanette Hayes? Well I do, just about every day. Luckily for me (and the rest of the ’90s Internet clan), makes it easy to transform any selfie-cam vid to look like a product of ’03 Microsoft Paint. Layer and transform images, add stickers, and let your imagination take you to weird alternate dimensions you didn’t even know existed.

    The Look: PUMA x Solange “Girls of Blaze” Lookbook

    There’s nothing I love more than cool kicks, vibrant colors, Solange, and a whole lot of attitude...and this lookbook’s got it all.

    The Face: Vincent Longo Créme Gel Eyeliner in Teal Green--$25

    Just dip a thin angled brush into this eyeliner and swoop right above and below your lash lines to bring pool party spirit to your day. The formula is super smooth, which is a bit of a strange feeling at first, but it stays put all day—something that most gel eyeliners couldn’t do. It’s also super versatile so you can use it as creme eyeshadow, if you so please.

    The Inspiration: @zakshelhamer Instagram

    Director/photographer Zak Shelhamer has one of the most stunning Instas out there. Sure, his photos are beautiful to look at, but the best part about them is that they’ll inspire you to get out and explore the world—via surfboard, sailboat, motorbike, or plane.

    The Song: “I’m Sorry We Lied” by Blood Orange

    Dev Hynes can do no wrong, especially when he channels his inner (well-intentioned) biker side. This song is the perfect poolside groove with its surf guitar, pop drums, and super chill vocals. Just one disclaimer: Don’t play this song if you plan on just idly laying out, because it will have you up and dancing by the first verse.
