Thanks to Buzzfeed, someone is finally taking wraps to task for being basically the most disappointing food ever. So in 2013, can all the snack bars, airlines, delis, gas stations and all the other places that are the natural habitat of the dreaded wrap, just get it together and get some bread already? And no panini, either. Sandwiches. We want sandwiches. K. Thanks.—Kate
Marianne Faithfull is an incredible woman who definitely left her mark on the fashion world in her heydays of the 1960s, but she still manages to influence me when I'm choosing what to wear everyday. You may know Marianne Faithfull as one of Mick Jagger's many girlfriends, but she actually is a remarkable musician who serves as fashion icon for tons of girls. She quickly became the face of the swinging sixties, especially with her perfect blonde fringe and creative and colorful outfits. Although Marianne is now 66, here are some things you can wear that I think she probably would've worn back then, too. Time to channel your inner '60s rock and roll goddess! - Maddie
Marianne loved her fur coats.

There's been a lot of catfish talk recently, what with the Manti Te'o scandal and all, and I'm consistently surprised by all these stories that are coming out. Actually, the most surprising thing of all is that a show like Catfish even exists in this day and age. How are so many people being duped? I mean, maybe it's not that surprising because humans get lonely, yo, and will maybe turn a blind eye in the hopes of finding true love, but still! Don't let yourself get catfished! Protect your heart. Unless you're really into Nev because, let's face it, he's pretty hot and if having a tragic online affair is what it will take for him to show up at my doorstep, then I'm down.—Katie
Unless you are really old or really young (like, 2 and below or 96 and above), you should know how to use Skype. If someone tells you that they can't Skype you, they are lying because literally every computer in the entire world has a webcam now and even if they don't, you can go to the store to buy one of those whack-ass attachable ones for like, $13. If you are truly trying to lay the foundation to a beautiful, online relationship, you gotta use Skype. No exceptions.
Okay, if you've decided not to listen to me and you have a partner who won't Skype and you're forging ahead anyway, you at least need to talk on the phone. If they have a weird voicemail, or never answer, or sound suspiciously like your 15-year-old neighbor, abandon ship. Nothing good will come from this.
Oh, so you tried to call them and it rang 40 times before going to something that sort of sounded like a voicemail but wasn't? That's not suspicious at all! If you're still determined to make this happen, give them a little text to see if they'll meet up with you. While they're busy texting you back to say they're too busy to meet because they're shopping in Paris, you get Nev on the phone, and you get him quick. There is literally no way this is going to work out in your favor, so you might as well have your 15 minutes of fame immortalized on MTV.
Apparently all of those rumors about The Strokes releasing a fifth album were true, because now the band has just released a new single: "One Way Trigger." Not going to lie, it took me a few listens to get used to the song's mellower sound, but, nevertheless, I'm happy one of my favorite bands is releasing more music! The song is fast with awesome guitars, like any good Strokes song, but this time with a huge overlying electronic sound. If you're digging this softer sound of the Strokes, go ahead and download the new track on their website. - Maddie
Curious Eggs put up this really cool post highlighting old color photographs of Paris in the early 1900s. They're interesting to look at since most of the photographs from that time are in black and white, and it's easy to forget that people back in the good ol' days weren't actually colorless, soulless humans. It's totes like Instagram for early 20th century Parisians.—Katie
All things Valentine's Day are upon us, but the one I'm most excited for is the latest pop-up shop that will be hitting Space 15 Twenty (1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd) on February 1. The shop is called "House of Hearts," and is being curated by an artist you may find familiar, Curtis Kulig, whose "LOVE ME" message has been seen in major cities like Los Angeles, New York City, and Tokyo. On February 1, you'll be able to meet Curtis (who might I add, is also an incredible photographer) in person at the opening party for the pop-up, which is a love-themed shop and polaroid show all in one. That Friday evening, you'll get to see his new shoe collaboration with Vans, get your nails done by Minx Nails, hear a DJ set by Aska from ESP, AND see Sky Ferreira perform live—one of my personal favorite new artists! Be sure to RSVP on Facebook, and email RSVP@Space15twenty.com, since this one will be big! - Maddie
In honor of the Puppy Bowl airing on February 3 (yeah, same day as that other bowl), Discovery put up this puppy cam! Puppies! Of course the little idiots are sleeping right now, but that's not going to stop me from creepily watching them anyway. The actual puppy bowl is also sure to be a delight, especially since they added hedgehog cheerleaders this year. Squeeeal.—Katie
Meet Mary Grace Clark, our college recruiter who will give you the A to Zs about getting your foot in the (figurative) door. Here we talk resumes, cover letters and how to stand out.
If the '80s launched hip-hop, then the '90s launched the female-rapper. Here's a legion of ladies who didn't take shit from anybody, wore whatever they wanted and who should definitely be on the soundtrack for your next girl's night out.—Kate
Bon Qui Qui is back n she gonna cut you if you try n steal somethin' from the Spring 2013 T by Alexander Wang Collection. -Ally
Rose Dawson, née DeWitt Bukater, taught me how to feel feelings at the age of 10, and that crushing on a cute, jobless artist is totally okay and probably necessary. Before Titanic was released, I was a mere husk of a human being, destined to live my life as a soulless worm. But then Titanic happened and Rose Dawson taught America how to live, so let's take a little look back on one badass, imaginary lady.—Katie
I know, Rose. I know. Being 17 is so hard. And you couldn't even Tweet your feelings.
Don't do it, Rose! Jack is right behind you! You're about to embark on the most beautiful love affair of all time!
Have I tried whispering "To the stars" to some men on occasion? Yes. Did it work as well as when Rose said it to Jack? No. Forever waiting for my romantic, car-in-the-hull-of-a-ship makeout sesh.
Rose Dawson, teaching America that even classy broads can throw up the bird every once in a while.
Sometimes I hope that there will be a point in my life where I can use this quote, in context, because it is so boss. Like, it will be a cold day in hell before Leo and Billy Zane start vying for my attention (or any two guys, let's be real), but I can dream. ROSE TAUGHT ME TO DREAM.
Oh, no big deal, just going to jump from this moving lifeboat to a sinking ship to be with my crush. That is some determination, Rose. Actually, that's a horrible life philosophy, but Rose is teaching us that love is real, y'all. Real and dumb.
Why did she jump? BECAUSE SHE LOVED YOU, JACK! SHE LOVED YOU AND YOUR '90S BOYBAND HAIR. Loyalty.
I would be crying too, my friend, if 1997 Leo DiCaprio passed away on my watch. No time to be sad, though, because now you're off to ride horses in jeans. Jack was just the catalyst that made sweet angel Rose embrace the badass woman within.
To sum up, Jack is basically that cute guy in your freshman English lit class [Ed. Note: Jordan Catalano anyone? -Ally] who smells like weed and smokes cigarettes down on the quad and drops out after two semesters to "travel the world" and "experience life", but it's totally normal to spend 75 years pining away for him because I mean, did you see his face? Worth it. I don't blame you, Rose.
Team Art Delights makes a coloring book filled with '90s pop divas and I need it. They also make other coloring books, including one titled "Boy Bands" which speaks to my soul on a very personal level. It's stuff like this that convinces me Etsy is the greatest website to ever exist.—Katie
LOL JK, that will never happen. -Ally
Unicorns are wonderful, imaginary creatures, and we should all be thrilled that they're popping up on everything from T-shirts to iPhone cases. Unicorns may be hard (okay, impossible) to find in real life, but thankfully easy to find on clothing. Rainbow hair, don't care.—Katie
UO Unicorns iPhone 5 Case
When I glance at this quickly it almost looks dirty, but in reality it's just cute li'l unicorns hanging out with some balloons. Nothing wrong with that.
Cooperative Applique Unicorn Flat
I'm going to throw in an emoticon here: XD Because that is the emotion these shoes make me feel and I don't think words are able to convey that properly.
Gift Card Charm Necklace
The most majestic necklace I've ever seen.
Junk Food Haters Gonna Hate Unicorn Tee
No one could hate you while wearing this beautiful unicorn shirt. When you wear this, you should also throw in some Unicorn Hair Extensions so you'll be perfectly coordinated.
Urban Renewal Fuzzy Unicorn Necklace
Actually, just kidding. This is the most majestic necklace I've ever seen.
Truly Madly Deeply Galaxy Unicorn Boyfriend Tee
Unicorns + space = the most perfect and Tumblr-y T-shirt in existence.
It doesn't matter what side of the equator you're on, right now a felt hat is a desirable object. I've been using mine to protect my head from the strongest of sun rays (that hole in the ozone layer above Australia is no joke), while those braving sub zero temperatures (hey, it's an excuse to drink hot toddies!) could use something to shield from blizzards and combat brain freeze. My favorite new millinery find is Australian label Fallen Broken Street, launched by model David Frim and photographer Justin Crawford, two surfers from Sydney's Northern Beaches. What started in 2011 with knitted beanies has evolved this season to include options like a floppy Carly Simon-worthy style called the Little Hippy; a compact topper named the Cove; an adorable sailor cap dubbed the Slipway; and the Dingo, a modern update on the classic Australian outback hat, minus the dangling corks. Hats off to you, boys! -Natalie
So, there's this new video-sharing app for Twitter called Vine and it makes short little videos (they even have sound), kind of like .gifs. Neat! Our very own Twitter team put up a "Vine" featuring some work puppies, and I'm curious to see if more people will follow suit. I wish the app allowed you to put a filter over the film because I'd take so many beautiful supermodel-y shots of myself, preferably with a fan blowing in my hair.—Katie
I'm obsessed with these teeny, tiny stickers by artist Sara M. Lyons. They're just so goddamn cute! Imagine how fun they'd look stuck all over your cell phone! I wonder if there'd be enough to sticker my entire bedroom...—Katie
Internet Explorer! You've been doing so good at making yourself relevant again! We're so proud of you! This video is making me feel so nostalgic. Almost nostalgic enough to use IE again. Well played.—Katie
