This week we're obsessed with ...
NYREE MCFARLANE & SARAH MACKENZIE
THIS INSTAGRAM: With one single Instagram Khloe Kardashian has managed to backtrack the women's rights movement by about 100 years. Here she is showing off the results of her 'waist trainer', aka CORSET, which she captioned, 'Who doesn't love to feel tight and right?!?' Umm. The sad thing is a legion of tween Kartrashian fans are probably now standing in front of the mirror wondering why their perfectly normal bodies look nothing like this torture-induced (and probably Photoshopped) sillohuette. Well, at least the Kardashian's unpaid in house graphic design intern has learnt to straighten up doors after 'shopping the heezy out of photos.
THIS HAIR: We'd like to submit this photo of Adam Levine's new walking-STD-Slim-Shady-quiff to the committee behind People's Sexiest Man title as means for instant disqualification. The look on the face of the tabby in the middle of his heinous, Miley-Cyrus-chic pussy singlet really says it all.
THIS PERFUME: We're as sick of 'fruity, tropical' perfumes as we are of headache-inducing Nana-would-love-this floral numbers, and so are delighted to have found the zingy, fresh Valeur Absolue Joie-Eclat scent ($115 for 45ml). Yes, there's a fruity element to the perfume - grapefruit - but this is toned down and made less 'car freshener' thanks to the spicy smell of cardamom and the masculine element of vetiver. The best bit? Each of the three perfumes in the Valeur Absolue range contain 'areaumat perpetua', an extract of the Immortelle flower that releases endorphins and ergo makes you happy. And we don't know if it's placebo effect or what, but spritzing it on certainly boosts our mood. Speaking of joy bubbles and rainbows ...
THESE HAPPY DOGS: It might seem crazy but most Pharrell Happy music video tributes leave us stone cold dead inside ... but this beauty, shot in Australia, is quite possibly the greatest thing we've ever seen (great choreography). We may have reached peak 'random-people-dancing-to-Happy-to-promote-their-business/city-etc' but we'll never reach peak 'close-up-shots-of-dogs'-noses' (especially if said dog is doggy-paddling in the ocean and so holding his snout up haughtily high. That's pure joy).
SAD KANYE: A photographer called Alex Yenni put up this Instagram after discovering Kim and Kanye at a zip lining course in Mexico and it's since gone viral as 'Sad Kanye' - cue endless memes (maybe of him sitting next to sad Keanu?). Some scenarios that could have made Kanye sad ... a) he just had firm proof that Drake made leather jogging pants a thing and not him. B) He's just gotten a text from Mama Kris saying he's going to have to start wearing Khloe's corset as his waist-to-ass ratio aren't up to Kardash' standards. C) He's still angsting over the fact that Jay and Bey aren't coming to the wedding. D) He's worried Bruce Jenner's hair is going to outshine him at the wedding (and in life).
THIS NIGHT CREAM: It may not be the newest player on the night cream market, but when you get to the bottom of a pottle of moisturiser without even realising it was an essential, you know you're onto a good thing. With sensitive skin prone to both breakouts and the odd bout of eczema, it's hard to find a night cream that hydrates without irritation. Trilogy's Rosapene Night Cream ($54.90 for 60ml) is an all around winner - it's made from all organic ingredients (rosehip oil, acai berry, honey and avocado oil just to name a few) sinks in relatively quickly and has a light fragrance that's relaxing without being sickly sweet.
