It's been quite the entertaining year, hasn't it? As we count down the days to 2014 (ack!), let us count down the things that have kept our attention this year: ♥ Read It: Rookie Yearbook Two. Our most favorite funky, spunky and smart 17-year-old, Tavi Gevinson, put out her second installment of the Rookie Yearbook, chronicling the best nuggets and gems of her site, RookieMag.
♥ Best/Weird Japanese Instrument. The Otamatone. A weird-looking and sounding instrument, so, naturally, we love it.
♥ Vintage Teen Novels. Writer Lizzie Skurnick is uncovering treasured teen novels from the ’30s through the ’80s that have gone out of print and might otherwise be forgotten.
♥ Emojis That Can Talk. My obsession with these damn things have grown and branched out into emojis that talk.
♥ The Band We Heart: Foxygen. Lastly, we have the band Foxygen whose quirky-nostalgic sound and Bob Dylan-tinged vocals have maintained its place in my 2013 rotation.
