Yeah, your commute is looking a little full this week.
Friends always sending you GIFs from every single Bravo show but you don’t know where to actually DL them? Take the Countess LuAnn’s advice and “Be cool. Don’t be all like, uncool.” Head to this site — created by social media stud T. Kyle MacMahon — to stock your camera roll up with GIFs featuring all the Real Housewives, Britney Spears + Mariah Carey, drag queens and more (hey, Lauren Conrad!) reacting to everything from laughing + crying to eyerolls + hairflips. Your texting game and email convos will be forever changed.
iTunes, SoundCloud + Stitcher): If you’re looking for a listen that is all about women in tech, this will hit the spot. Co-hosted by Lizelle Van Vuuren, WWS founder + CEO of Effectively, and cofounder + CEO of P2Binvestor Krista Morgan, this podcast celebrates, connects and empowers women who startup, women founders, women who code, women who tech and women entrepreneurs. With discussions ranging from legal issues for startups, cofounder conflicts, fundraising (including cold calls), the perceived environment for women entrepreneurs today and more, those interested in the topic will come out with a much better understanding on what Silicon Valley (and the startup world as a whole) think of women. Soak in these women — and their guest’s — knowledge, people!
iBooks, Barnes + Noble, IndieBound, Google Play + Amazon): This is a love story for the digital age played out through email exchanges. Playing out like an updated You’ve Got Mail in book format, this tale of romance unfolds via numerous email exchanges throughout between the authors and their friends (naturally). We’re pretty sure this book is more entertaining than your work email threads. (Photo via @NinaCosford)
iOS): This relaunched selfie-taking app is filled with all your front-facing camera needs. Set reminders to take a snap every day and line up your face to match every other day’s positions. Then make a movie out of your headshots to see how much you have or haven’t changed. Wanna make multiple timelapses so you can see the evolution of a plant, dog or child? You can totally do that too. Send us the results in a year ;)
