First Date with TV Star Billy Eichner

First Date with Billy Eichner

We get romantic with the guy behind “Billy on the Street”

You know in The Notebook when Rachel McAdams first meets Ryan Gosling, and you’re like “This could never work!” and then it’s the sweetest love story of our time?

Well, this video is basically the same thing. In today’s First Date, our woman about town, Lauren Lumsden, goes out with Billy Eichner, host of Fuse’s hit show Billy on the Street. The meet-cute happens at Manhattan’s East 12th Osteria, where they talked about Tinder, pickup lines, and Meryl Streep.

Okay, so maybe it’s a little more like The Bridges of Madison County.

Billy on the Street airs Wednesdays at 11 p.m. ET on Fuse. For more information, go to fuse.tv. Want more romance? Watch our date with Orange Is the New Black’s Matt McGorry.

Inside Story: Author Georgia Pellegrini

Inside Story: Author Georgia Pellegrini

We tour her modern Texas home

We just met the love child of Dr. Quinn and Katniss Everdeen, with a little Tris Prior mixed in.

She’s Georgia Pellegrini, author of the new book Modern Pioneering. And though she hunts, fishes, and forages with the best of ’em, her East Austin home is far from a log cabin full of animal heads.

In today’s Inside Story video, the New Yorker-turned-Texan shows us around her lofty space, from the old Stetsons repurposed as wall art to the antique Nancy Drew collection.

Like us, she seems to have a thing for independent women.

For more from Pellegrini, go to georgiapellegrini.com. Buy her book at amazon.com, and if you really want to get to know her (you should), go on one of her adventure getaways.

Care Package: Olivia Wilde

Care Package: Olivia Wilde

Tokens of our affection for the mother-to-be

She’s got a dog named Paco. She’s having a baby boy with Jason Sudeikis. She surfs.

Actress Olivia Wilde is one of the cooler people around. In today’s Care Package video, we pay tribute to our girl crush with a few gifts we think she’d dig.

If you like what you see (especially since everything is less than $100), check out the presents we picked out for Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and supermodel Karlie Kloss.

They’d make a heck of a team.

5 Questions with Model Lydia Hearst

5 Questions with Model Lydia Hearst

The star of Oxygen’s “The Face” gets real

To those who say mugging for the camera every day is the easiest job in the world: Watch this video and you’ll feel differently.

In today’s 5 Questions interview, Lydia Hearst tells us the most painful thing she’s done in the name of fashion — and let’s just say it isn’t pretty. While we had her, she also shared her biggest indulgence (don’t worry; it’s not pretzels) and her thoughts on selfies.

Which, as we all know, are extremely difficult to get right.

The Face airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET. For more information, go to the-face.oxygen.com.

How to Make a Kite

How to Make a Kite

An easy craft project that soars

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. Okay, it’s not Superman, but — perhaps just as heroically — it will keep your children outside and away from the TV for a while.

In today’s video, we show you how to make miniature kites out of fabric and dowel rods. When your tots tucker out, the crafts double as wall decor, especially when you create multiples in different sizes and fabrics.

Once you have all your supplies (available at any craft store), the project takes about ten minutes from start to finish.

Almost as fast as a speeding bullet.

Want to keep playing? Check out our video on three ways to play with marbles fun.

Care Package: Lupita Nyong’o

Care Package: Lupita Nyong’o

We made a package for our favorite Oscar winner

If you didn’t get emotional during her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress, you were probably watching True Detective.

We’d take Lupita Nyong’o over Rust Cohle any day. Which is why the actress is the object of our affection in today’s Care Package video, the new series in which we select gifts we think our favorite celebs would like.

From our favorite bright lipsticks to a little pendant of her homeland, we’re sure she’ll like our surprises/belated birthday gifts (she turned 31 on March 1).

Does anyone know the shipping address for cloud nine?

Pretty Smart: DIY Nail Decals

Pretty Smart: DIY Nail Decals

We’ve got Oscar noms at our fingertips

What do Leonardo DiCaprio and our ring finger have in common? Unfortunately, it’s not a diamond.

Using easy-to-find graphic paper and a little know-how, we put his face — and the rest of the Best Actor/Actress Oscar nominees’ — on our phalanges. In this Pretty Smart video, we show you the trick.

Not so keen on having Hollywood’s who’s who at your fingertips? Don’t worry: The how-to works for any photo. One of our editors did memes (Grumpy Cat got a thumbs-up); another did emojis. The possibilities are endless.

Just like our love for Leo.

Care Package: Karlie Kloss

Care Package: Karlie Kloss

We make a care package for the supermodel

We love giving gifts. Especially if finding them requires us to “research” gossip mags at work.

Introducing DailyCandy Care Package, our new video series in which we compile items for our favorite famous folks based on what we think they might like. First up is Karlie Kloss, who surely needs a picker-upper right now while jaunting from catwalk to catwalk (okay, so her life isn’t too shabby, but whatever).

From a sweatshirt showing off her Midwestern roots to a cookbook that’ll satisfy her documented affinity for breakfast, we box up a bevy of objects she’s sure to love. And nothing costs more than $60.

Which means we might end up getting a few things for ourselves in the process.

3 Activities with Marbles

3 Activities with Marbles

A maze, game, and art project

Playing with marbles over other toys seems like choosing rice over filet mignon. Or easy listening over Jay Z. Or snow angels over slopestyle.

Today’s video restores our interest in the simple spheres. We’ve got a trio of ways to use them that you’ve probably never considered: a game, an art project, and a maze. All are easy to construct and keep kids entertained for hours.

We know this because our young model, Scarlet, kept on rolling long after the camera stopped.

She could have chosen anything else.

For more fun ways to spend time with your children, check out our easy instructions for making a family tree or crafting stamps from produce.

First Date with Actor Matt McGorry

First Date with Actor Matt McGorry

We get awkward with the “Orange Is the New Black” star

Sure, Corrections Officer Bennett gets his secret inmate girlfriend pregnant on Orange Is the New Black, but he’s still the show’s hot guy.

The actor behind the handsome lothario is Matt McGorry, and it’s not every day we get to talk to such a charming fellow. Instead of doing a standard interview, we thought (selfishly), Why not make it a date? So we did.

In today’s first (and, we hope, not last) First Date with … video, we go to one of New York’s best date spots, Commerce, and ask McGorry an array of questions that might make a lesser gentleman flee: Do you have tattoos? How much do you bench? And, of course, what’s your shoe size?

We did not, however, ask him how he feels about handcuffs.

Rumor has it Orange Is the New Black returns for a second season on Netflix in June. For more interviews with familiar faces, check out our sit-downs with gymnast Nastia Liukin, actress Zoey Deutch, and model Coco Rocha.
