Take a Snack Break With Nicki and Drake

Okay, there's no story here. What you see is what you get, which is Nicki Minaj and Drake giving into a major snack attack while filming Usher's new video.

Ask Miranda July to Deliver Your Text

In her films You and Me and Everyone We Know and The Future, artist/writer/director Miranda July has never shied away from unconventional (and sometimes uncomfortable) human interactions.

Try Funfetti—On Your Face

We dare you find a more festive look than this confetti eyeliner from The Beauty Department. By combining small dots of different colored liquid liners, you can create a similar rockin' party on your eyelids. We can't wait to wear it to our next b-day bash. (The Beauty Department)
