Miley Cyrus

It's been almost four years since everyone's favorite Hannah Montanna dropped Bangerz and I was instantly obsessed.  However, everything that has followed suit has been one wrecking ball after another, until now. The once controversial pop star has cleaned up her act and has gone back to her roots. Critics are calling it an uber cheesy pop song and/or a reinvention, but all I can say is that Cyrus' new single Malibu is one damn catchy new single and I'm hooked. It was on repeat at the gym for me this weekend. It might be too early to call, but Malibu may be Summer 2017's anthem. I guess laying off the weed has done this Miley good in my book. See for yourself below.

Whitney Port x Cheeky

Last Sunday, the cutest bundle of disposable tableware arrived at Target. The Hills veteran, Whitney Port, dropped a limited-edition collection with Cheeky. Shop exclusively at Target and on the company website for this adorable line of goods. It's too cute you almost don't want to throw it away after use. 

The brand and Whitney hope to inspire people to put their phones down and enjoy special moments together at any table either outdoors, home, at work or on the go, all of course in style. Your new tablescape will definitely have a punch of personality to any casual gathering. A great added bonus, with each purchase you make, Cheeky donates a meal to a person in need through nonprofit organization, Feeding America. I think it's time I threw another apt 5B celebration with these fantastic paper plates and cups. Who's in?

Yoke Lore

Brooklyn-based artist, Adrian Galvin, formerly of bands Walk The Moon and Yellerkin, is back in 2017 with a big punch. His new moniker Yoke Lore just debuted a new single "World Wings" is the perfect next step in his budding career. 

Galvin was born into an artistic family, where his parents spend their days directing, acting and sculpting. Before settling on his passion of music, Adrian dabbled in photography, painting and even ballet. I love the meaning behind his name. In a recent interview, he explained that "A 'yoke' is something that holds things together. 'Lore' means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture. I want to tell stories about how things are bound and held together. I think something's value is in its relationship to everything else. Work in the joints; where things come together."

Not only are his electronic melodies and his eyes swoon worthy, he's got an album on the horizon. Fresh off a successful stint at SXSW, he will be heading towards New York at the end of the April. I've got my eyes set on you, Adrian. But for now, I've got this tune to carry me through till next month. Enjoy below.

Sunday In The Park With Geroge

The last time Jake Gyllenhaal was on Broadway, I kicked myself for not paying the benjamins to see him live on stage. This time around, I made a gallant effort to see him on the Great White Way, plus he was in a musical nonetheless by my favorite composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim. Although it may have cost me an arm and a leg, it was completely worth the experience.

For those unfamiliar with the show, the musical was inspired by the famous painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" (the one from Ferris Beular's Day Off) by Georges Seurat. Now, I know, you're probably thinking, what a strange idea for a musical. However, I can't express enough on what a beautiful musical this was. The main story may revolve around the painting; however, there were other themes that carried through. I left the theater feeling inspired and hopeful for my future. 

If my little speech didn't convince you enough, then check out swoon-worthy Jake below. Once your done; grab your wallet and immediately head to the box office.

From The Archives

Over the long holiday weekend, I popped into a few stores to check out any sales and to potentially get a jump start on my Spring wardrobe. One of the stores I checked out was the Gap and received a rush of nostalgia when spotting a handful of merchandise. If you thought normcore left the scene last year, well friends think again.

This season, the Gap, America's favorite iconic brand has launched a limited-edition collection for men and women featuring iconic styles from the '90s. Silhouettes range from bodysuits, reverse fit and easy fit denim, pleated khakis and the timeless pocket tees. My elementary school self just got super jazzed and really excited.

To celebrate the launch, Gap collaborated with director Kevin Calero to create a series of commercials titled "Generation Gap" playing homage to everyone's favorite Gap ads of the '90s with references to "Mellow Yellow," "Just Can't Get Enough" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" but updated with a fun and modern twist. This capsule is a celebration of the next generation as they reimagine the iconic Gap looks in their own unique style and ways.

Check out the commercial below and then head over to Gap and get your wallet ready.
