SuChin Pak's 5 Questions: Face Hunter's Yvan Rodic

SuChin Pak's 5 Questions: Face Hunter's Yvan Rodic

The street style photographer tells all

Travel the world. Photograph well-heeled, beautiful people. Chronicle adventures. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

That someone is Yvan Rodic, the brains behind go-to street style blog Face Hunter. In this 5 Questions with SuChin Pak video, we go behind the lens, learning everything from how Rodic chooses his subjects to his opinion on the most stylish city in the world (you’ll be surprised).

Rodic also fills us in on his latest book, Travels with Face Hunter, a picture diary of a year in his fabulous, jet-setting life.

He really took one for the team.

Travels with Face Hunter is available at amazon.com, $17. To read his blog, go to facehunter.blogspot.com. Want to keep watching? Check out our interviews with actress Anna Chlumsky, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé, and supermodel Coco Rocha.

The Monster Stomp

The Monster Stomp

And rocks the DailyCandy office

In the spirit of full disclosure, we have a bit of a thing for Lisa Loeb. “Stay” is our go-to karaoke jam. We were frame junkies long before Warby Parker. And we embrace (and at the same time completely reject) our place in Generation X.

Which is why we geeked out when she visited our NYC office to perform from her latest kids’ book and album, Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Movin’ & Shakin’.

Since she rocked our world in 1994, Loeb has released eight albums, starred in two reality shows, launched an eyewear collection, founded a nonprofit, and become a mom.

Her latest fam-friendly effort combines tunes, activities, and a ten-song CD that are guaranteed to get you and your kiddies off the couch and dancing your pants off.

Who’s the slacker now?

Sunny Days

Turn your backyard into a kid oasis

Max from across the street got a new swing set. Nora from around the corner plays in a custom-designed tree house.  

Your kid? Tell him the grass is greener in his own backyard.

Turn your turf into a kid-friendly oasis with these four easy projects. A plastic container becomes buried treasure. A soda bottle morphs into a sprinkler. Bed sheets pull double duty as a fort. And graham crackers and ice cream make your lawn the most popular one on the block.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, neighbor.

Don’t have a yard? Try turning your living room into a drive-in movie theatre.

SuChin Pak’s 5 Questions: Anna Chlumsky

SuChin Pak’s 5 Questions: Anna Chlumsky

On her first baby, high school prom, and “Veep”

Here’s a (laughable) piece of trivia: One of the most recognizable kid actors of our generation later became a fact checker at Zagat.

Actress Anna Chlumsky originally invaded our hearts playing Vada Sultenfuss in My Girl. These days she works alongside a motley White House crew as Veep’s Amy Brookheimer.

In today’s 5 Questions with SuChin Pak, Chlumsky fills in the gap between now and then, from what it was like to be a kid actor to who makes her laugh the hardest on the Veep set. She even tells us what it was like to prom-hop in high school.

You’ll probably notice she’s got a bun in the oven (a little lady due this summer).

A.k.a. her girl.

To watch full episodes of Veep, go to hbo.com. For more interviews, check out our videos with model Coco Rocha, actress/writer Mindy Kaling, nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, and singer Emeli Sandé.

’Tis the season for triumphant returns: Arrested Development, Twinkies, and Winona Ryder (our resident movie expert swears it), to name a few.

Also back in business: our Ask the Office Guy video series. For today’s installment, we went to the Foursquare offices and asked the following hard-hitters: What’s a good new date spot (above)? What’s the best way to get noticed online? What’s the best pizza in NYC? And, finally, what’s your spirit animal?

We’re going to different offices every few weeks, so, please, submit your questions. And in case you missed it last month, we got Mashable’s hilarious editorial director to tell us when to follow a new guy on Twitter, online-dating red flags, and who’s single at his office.

Pretty Smart: Makeup Contouring Tips

Pretty Smart: Makeup Contouring Tips

Jenine Pizza gives us a step-by-step tutorial

Cosmetics can hold transformative power (see: any thousand-page slide show of celebs without makeup).

In today’s Pretty Smart video, Jenine Pizza, brand manager at Beauty Addicts, teaches our beauty editor, Jennifer Jackson, basic methods of contouring (a.k.a. using makeup to enhance your bone structure). All you need is bronzer and foundation to achieve a more defined jawline, slimmer nose, and higher cheekbones.

The best part? It takes about a minute max. The results are noticeable, but not over the top (read: no foundation chin straps here).

Getting stared down never felt so good.

SuChin Pak's 5 Questions: Emeli Sandé

SuChin Pak's 5 Questions: Emeli Sandé

The Scottish songstress tells us what we want to know

It takes balls to cover Queen Bey.

Singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé, who sings “Crazy in Love” on the Jay-Z produced Great Gatsby sound track, doesn’t need ’em: Her voice is unreal (and her hair is pretty slick, too).

In today’s 5 Questions with SuChin Pak video, Sandé tells us what’s changed since she’s become a star (her song “Next to Me” is everywhere), what she sings in the shower, and the best advice she’s ever gotten. She even sings the first lyric she ever wrote, at age 7, about aliens.

In case you’re wondering, the interview takes place at JFK, as Sandé joins the ranks of Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding, and Robyn for JetBlue’s Live from T5 concert series.

These girls run the world.

Sandé’s album, Our Version of Events, is available at itunes.com, $8. Want more 5 Questions? Check out our interviews with supermodel Coco Rocha and nutritionist-to-the-stars Kimberly Snyder.

Inside Story: Lele Sadoughi

Inside Story: Lele Sadoughi

The jewelry designer shows us her place

Fact: Some people have more hours in their days than the rest of us. 

Designer Lele Sadoughi sits among these unicorns: She started J.Crew’s jewelry division, heads it up at Tory Burch, and launched her own collection for Spring 2013. And she had a baby a month ago.

In today’s Inside Story, we took of a tour of Sadoughi’s Greenwich Village pad, from the thousands of pieces of costume jewelry to table settings fit for a queen. The coolest part? Almost everything is from flea markets and eBay (she even divulged her search terms). 

While we were there, Sadoughi gave us a peek at her fall collection, and it’s just as vibrant and colorful as the rooms she inhabits. 

If, that is, she’s a real person. 

To shop Sadoughi’s collection, go to lelesadoughi.com. To watch more home porn, check out Heidi Merrick’s hideaway in the hills, Rebecca Minkoff’s colorful loft, and Lela Rose’s Manhattan mansion
