Real life Friday the 13th Scary Stories
Tbh, I didn't even realize it was Friday the 13th until I opened up my email and saw this Refinery29 article about real life horror stories that coincidentally (or not... *dun* *dun* *duuuun*) took place on Friday the 13th.

Instead of spoiling the stories for you, I'll leave you with the link here, so you can check them out for yourself.

Metallic Lipsticks
Metallic lips seem to be one of the trendy things happening in the beauty world right now. I can't decide if I'm absolutely in love or absolutely horrified. I'm leaning towards in love. I'm just not sure if I have the... moxie to pull off such a bold look.

If you're looking for alternatives to the reality-star-who-shall-not-be-named's line, here are some solid options.

My first trip to Yankee Stadium
Growing up in Jersey, it was pretty much a prerequisite that you pick sides: Yankees or Mets. And of course I chose the Yankees. That said, asides from those few years in my childhood, I never really cared much about baseball even if it is the great American pastime.

Then the other day on Twitter I saw an ad for the Gametime app; they were selling $5 Yankees tickets. And what do you know, I ended up at the game last night because why not when there's $5 tickets. I mean, I would go to a Kanye West concert if there were $5 tickets and I find Kanye absolutely insufferable.

Let me just say, baseball games are so much more interesting in person. I was honestly shocked that 3 hours had passed because I was having such a good time! Moral of the story? I'll definitely be buying more $5 baseball tickets throughout the summer!

If you decide to download the Gametime app, you can enter the code "LASTMINUTE20435" and both of us will receive a $5 credit! Win-win!

Buzzfeed Unsolved
I'm a big ol' scaredy cat wimp. Scary movies, scary stories, basically anything scary makes me want to close my eyes, put my hands over my ears, and start saying "nanananana I can't hear you." But for whatever reason, I love to punish myself and read scary shit on the internet. Especially before bedtime.

This month I've been enjoying creeping the fuck out of myself by watching Buzzfeed's new Unsolved series. Two Buzzfeed authors, Ryan and Brent, chat about creepy conspiracy theories, heinous unsolved crimes, and all that jazz. My favorite part of the series is the repartee between the two hosts-- Ryan is all about setting the eerie mood and then Brent comes in with his wtf-is-this-skepticism.

If you're a glutton for scary stories, you should definitely watch!
