Arctic Monkeys; Smooth Indie Melodies for Heartbreaks

Characterized by their signature traits of being cool, mysterious, and edgy, the Arctic Monkeys has slowly emerged to be one of the most hyped and influential bands of the 21st century. The band blew up the indie rock scene once again when they released their album.The band blew up the indie rock scene once again when they released their much-anticipated album, The band blew up the indie rock scene once again when they released their much-anticipated album, AM, in 2013. Combining a mixture of modern jazz and Hollywood rock, the Arctic Monkeys bring a sense of originality and uniqueness to a genre that is in desperate need of a contrasting sound to recent releases. Credited as being one of the pioneer bands to become popular mostly due to web-based fan-bases instead of through promotion and marketing, the Arctic Monkeys have proven that self-boosting isn’t always necessary when the product itself is difficult to ignore.

The Inspiring Heroines of Film

Sadly, it has become a trend to label girls as “bossy” if they assert themselves. Whether it is in school or work, if a girl is “in charge” she is at risk of being labeled as bossy. The Ban Bossy campaign is ready to inspire girls to be leaders and to not be afraid of being in charge. You can visit the campaign’s website and make the pledge to Ban Bossy. Inspired by the Ban Bossy Campaign we have complied a list of some of the strongest and fearless women in film. Books and cleverness are not the only things that make up Hermione’s strong personality. Harry’s right hand witch is also brave (duh she is in Gryffindor). She is willing to help her friends no matter what the cost. She never gives up on Harry and is always there to help him and save the rest of the wizard world. I love Hermione. She is strong and never gives up. She is a girl who uses her brains, and let’s face it, Harry would have …

Medi & Her Artistic Sketches of Your #OOTD

On September 25th 2014 the world – specifically Instagram and all its devotees – was introduced to the artistic and total trend-worthy art by 18-years-old Medi. Hailing from Ireland this artist began posting a few random artwork which later started a buzz. What’s her story? Well we’ve got the answers right here from her favorite trendsetters to her non-fashion artwork. It’s not really about the person or what they do. ​​YHM: Why did you start @SketchMyStyle? MEDI: I had a lot of time on my hands. Earlier this year I found @OOTDMagazine and @TokyoFashion on Instagram. I loved the outfits they were posting and found myself sketching the ones that interested me just for fun. One outfit took less than five minutes since they were quick pen sketches. I thought, maybe I should start drawing other’s OOTDs and give it to them through Instagram instead of spending all this time just messing around. ​YHM: How did you get started? MEDI: I initially searched #OOTD and any outfit I liked I sketched. It’s not really about the person …

Stay focused and Survive the Cold!

Its that time of year again. Sure, you get to finally wear your cute sweaters, scarves and boots again, but the changing weather also brings something else to worry about: getting sick. But don’t worry! Here are some tips to help you beat the cold this season: 1. Prepare your immune system. Before you feel that cold coming on, support your immune system by taking all natural vitamins and supplements. Getting plenty of Vitamin C is important. Adding the supplement Emergen-c to your water is an easy and yummy way to ensure you’re getting your daily dose of Vitamin C and other important vitamins. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or antioxidant-rich green tea. Also make sure you’re combating germs by washing your hands periodically or keeping a small container of hand sanitizer in your purse or backpack. 2. Minimize stress. Stress can have a negative effect on you, mentally and physically. Stress can cause fatigue or lack of sleep, which makes it even harder for your body to protect itself from getting sick. Exercise can …

We Can’t Get Enough of Rixton

What’s your music playlist looking like right now? Ours? Well we are crushing major on Rixton and patiently awaiting the arrival of their debut album Let the Road on March 2, 2015. Currently touring the UK, the talented quartet are sure to gain even more popularity when they hit the road with Ariana Grande on her Honeymoon Tour in February of next year. Rixton finally released their much anticipated music video for “Wait on Me” this month. The charming gentlemen suited up for a steaming 1920s inspired affair with thrilling love triangles and mobster scenes. With a constantly busy schedule, from interviews to live performances, we are still playing catch up on all things Rixton. Since we last talked about them, Rixton has taken over the U.S. audience from their performances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to the Teen Choice Awards. We had no doubt that these four would be a mega hit with their smooth vocals that remind us of Adam Levine and dope beats that make us sway until the sun comes up. By …

4 Classic Horror Movies You Should Watch this Halloween

Halloween is right around the corner and its always fun to celebrate with a horror movie binge. When it comes to horror flicks, the classics can often be the best. Here are some old school horror movies to get you in the Halloween spirit! This movie caused a lot of controversy when it came out in 1960, and it is considered to be Hollywood’s first “slasher” movie. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, “Psycho” is as creepy as it gets; complete with a scary old woman and her weird, taxidermy-obsessed son. “Psycho” was remade in 1998 (starring Vince Vaughn) but, trust me, the classic 1960 version is better. If you like this Hitchcock classic, check out his film “The Birds.” Its almost as creepy! This Stephen King classic stars Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, a struggling writer who is hired to oversee The Overlook Hotel (based on the real, allegedly haunted Stanley Hotel in Colorado) for the winter. He brings his wife and son with him, but soon things start to go very wrong. Jack is tormented by the …
