Limitless

Remember when people we’re all afraid to wear horizontal stripes, because they felt like it made them look wide? (eye roll) Which kind of reminds me of when people used to be deathly afraid to wear black with brown. We’re talking complete fashion sin. Thank you, Jesus for freeing our minds of such ridiculousness. BRING ON THE BLACK + BROWN. BRING ON THE STRIPES. Around The Rage, we’re obsessing over this striped perfection. It’s casual, and sexy at the same time. Click to order.

Bachelor In Paradise – Vent Session

For those of you swooning over The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor In Paradise. We’re right there with you. From Ashley I. crying her eyes out every .5 seconds, and Josh M. moaning every time he takes a bite of pizza (or just well in general) ….we feel like there are some things we need to get off our chest. Probably what we need to do is get on some Bachelor Nation forum, but when you have your own blog….you can do what you want!

1- Jared. Let me start off by saying Jared REALLY isn’t that cute. Like, everyone’s all like… “ohhh, Jared.” And we’re all over here like “ohhhh, Vinny!” (Insert heart eyes here – we’ll also get into the Izzy thing in a minute.) Why is everyone so obsessed over Jared? Ashley, you’re way cuter!

2- Izzy. Honey, WHAT were you THINKING? The lamp guy!? No. Just no. You, and Vinny were a match made in Heaven. TEAM VINNY!

3- We have officially changed Chris Harrison’s name to “Captain Obvious.” Example – (insert there being one rose left on the stand) “Ladies, this is the final rose tonight.” No freaking way. You could have fooled me! Smh.

4- Carly + Evan. Carly, WHY are you so funny? You’re so on our level, girl. Evan, you kiiiiinda were a weirdo at first…. but you’ve proven yourself! TEAM CARAN!

5- Josh. GO AWAY. WE LOVE NICK. Amanda, WAKE UP.

6- Ashley I. + Jared – Can someone get this chick an anti-depressant? What’s WRONG with you? Actually, if we’re being totally honest. There HAS to be more to the story. HAS TO BE. You can’t tell me that Jared didn’t lead her on. No girl is that hung up on a dude, unless they’ve somewhat given them hope. We’re on your side, Ashley. But you still might need meds.

7- Grant + Lace. Or, Grace if you will. (eye roll) You know how fire to a large amount of gasoline results in an explosion. That’s basically what their relationship is like. One big, flaming disaster.

8- Jami. She wore our ‘Perfect Weather Floral Romper’ in last nights episode! Her exact romper didn’t come from us, but we have the SAME romper… in NAVY! Everything is better in navy, right?

Ultimate Tailgate Checklist

We are officially ONE week away from the first college game OF. THE. SEASON. Who’s excited?! (insert everyone raising their hand here) Don’t get me wrong, we all love watching our favorite team play. But, let’s be real here. What percentage of us ACTUALLY go to the game to WATCH the football game in it’s entirety? It’s ok, you don’t want to admit it. We’ll just say it for you. You go to the games for…. tailgating, socializing, the beer, the jello shots, the food, cute boys, people watching, hanging with your bestie, and please God let there be drunk dudes with chest painting. Please!

If you love tailgating just like us, you’ll really enjoy this. We’ve found some killer tailgating tips that we think will help make this years tailgating go over a smidge better than years past.

1 – Show up to the game 4 hours before the game actually starts. You’ll need time to set up + take everything down before the game starts.

2 – Bring a toolbox. I don’t NEED no man! (insert sassy independent woman here) Kidding. If you have a dude, bring him. Then you can sit back, and enjoy the view.

3 – Pack portable jello shots in your teams colors. We’re a HUGE fan of these Strawberries + Cream jello shots. It’s like… you don’t know it’s even happening…. and then you stand up.:/ #yolo #oops

4 – Bring extra fun accessories for friends. (face stickers…etc.)

5 – Build a tailgate beer pong table. Like, why would you not?

6 – Bring your most comfortable lounge chair.

7 – A blanket. For when you’ve have a little too much to drink, and need a little power nap before kick off.

8 – Get a cute snapback hat. And wear it backwards. It’s a thing now.

9 – Red solo cups. You COULD BE the next flip cup champion. AND, you’ll need these for your beer pong table.

10 –  Take lots of snaps using the bee filter. Dear Snapchat, please don’t EVER do away with the bee filter. {follow us on snapchat here}

11 – Last but not least, you’ll need a BA shirt from our Tailgate Collection.

SUNDAY BRUNCH + SAINT ANEJO + SAMMY ARRIAGA

IMG_4690

(image stolen from his Instagram)

An artist by the name of Sammy Arriaga has stolen our hearts! This Sunday, we are spending brunch with him … or at least the soothing melody of his song “Margarita Talk”. It just so happens the setting of this song takes place at our very own Saint Anejo, where Sammy likes to go on Wednesdays with his friends. Three of these amigos are Van Hunt, Conor Matthews, and Lalo Guzman who helped to create this EP alongside our man Sammy. The vibe of Saint Anejo, a M Street favorite, can often transport us all to a more exotic, beach-y locale, and we are very glad it took these men there on the day they wrote “Margarita Talk”.

(If we keep drinking margaritas will we eventually write a hit too?)

Arriaga grew up in Miami, FL, which you can hear when you listen to the sounds of his country, meets latin “Acoustic Mixtape”, “Banjos and Bongos”. While he is very clearly country, the hint of latin gives it a sexuality and a soul that most typical “country boys” have yet to master. The sound of Sammy is more Enrique Iglesias hip movements, than dude on a tractor… and we are not complaining! With the success of “Banjos and Bongos” thus far, it is hard to believe his first release was in fact an “Acoustic Mixtape” rather than a first official album.

Sammy has already done it all; followed his dreams, moved 1,000 miles away from his home, signed with Latium Entertainment + Sony Records, played CMAfest, made it to Hollywood on season 10 of American Idol, essentially created his own style of music, opened for some of the top artists in the U.S, been selected for CMT’s “Artist Discovery” campaign 2016, and thats all BEFORE his first OFFICIAL album drops! To say this guy is a talent is an understatement. We haven’t even mentioned yet how adorable he is, or how sweet, or ….

Without further delay here is “Maragita Talk” by Sammy Arriaga

Look him up on FacebookInstagramYoutube (prepare to swoon), Spotify, and Twitter!

We know we can expect great things from Sammy Arriaga, and wish him luck on his road to complete music industry domination!

NOW HEAD OVER TO SAINT ANEJO AND GET YOURSELF A MARG, SOME SANGRIA, OR BOTH!
