The Milk.xyz Weekly Editors' Picks
In a perfect world, our editors’ picks would include a year’s supply of chicken nuggets, saying goodbye to our student loan debt on Twitter, and maybe, just maybe, a little European rendezvous to top it all off in style.
Ok, reality check: you can’t always get what you want…but sometimes, you can. And though we’re not checking off our top wish list items (see above), these goodies come pretty damn close. Check ’em below.
CarrotsNope, not the veggie: Anwar Carrots’ brand, Carrots, is dropping a new Healthcare Innovation collection, and I’ll be damned if I don’t get my hands on one of those smoking elephant tees. After collabing with Brooks, Places + Faces, and IN4MATION, Carrots is headed for viral fame, stat—so snag his shit while you still can. – Emma
VeepVeep is the perfect show to get your laughs out in this political climate. The cast is absolutely amazing, especially if you miss Seinfeld—S/O to Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Go steal your friend’s HBO-GO password and binge watch this show. – Katie
bloom by Machine Gun KellyMGK just (literally, this morning) released his third studio album. The super raw artist shows he isn’t afraid of death, plus the album features Quavo, Ty Dolla Sign and more. Go stream this right now—it’s seriously the perfect way to start the weekend. – Katie
Dolman Quilted JacketThe transition from winter to spring is not only sweet, it also brings the same slew of questions to mind when getting dressed in the morning: “Is it hot? Is it cold? The sun is out, but it’s freezing. What to do in this situation?” The answer: wear Free People’s Dolman Quilted Jacket! This jacket is just the right amount of warm and breezy at the same time. Not to mention, it’s just a fresh ass jacket that doesn’t look like you are going to Coachella, but more like to bed! Who doesn’t love outerwear that looks like a comforter? – Bianca
Aquemini by OutkastIn spirit of the Netflix documentary ‘The Art of Organized Noize‘, featuring the talented Atlanta-based producers Rico Wade, Sleepy Brown, and Ray Murray, it’s only right to pay homage to the renowned production group. Organized Noize produced a plethora of Outkast’s music, from tracks like “Return of the G” to “Skew It on the Bar-B”, plus the hit single “So Fresh and So Clean”. My personal fav is the double platinum ‘Aquemini’ album; a linguistic blend of Big Boi and Andre 3000 zodiac signs (Aquarius and Gemini). ‘Aquemini’ incorporates outer-space inspired sound with live music and taps into realms of addiction, personal narration, and the black experience. If you’re into hip hop and want to know more about the southern pioneers, preview and purchase ‘Aquemini’ now. – Kristie
COVERGIRL +Olay The Depuffy LightI’m still learning the ropes when it comes to makeup in general, and figured I’d address my biggest issue first: the under-eyes. I’m moving this weekend and could literally use these bags to carry everything I own from one apt to the next. This is my first shot at concealer, but it actually does a great job of fixing the discoloration and isn’t too noticeable—which is crucial for someone who just started wearing makeup. – Mathias
Visceral 8 PrintsIf your space suffers from bare walls, add some art. Easily a part of furnishing that goes overlooked, it’s also one that can totally alter the character of your home, if you hang the right kind of shit. Visceral 8, an online platform bringing together emerging artists of cross-disciplinary industries, offers a range of beautiful prints at affordable prices—and with only two sizes to choose from, you won’t have to pretend to understand dimensions! This print is a personal favorite by German photographer Annika Weertz from Visceral’s “form” issue. – Brandon
