Are You My Ride? The BMW 328 Homage

February 28, 2012 | 3:00 PM | Are You My Ride? | By Maxfield Barker

For this week’s edition of AYMR? we’re taking a look into the past, while simultaneously heading towards the future. The BMW 328 Homage is exactly what its name suggests: an homage, specifically to the classic Beemer of the 1930s. The introduction of Homage last year was in honor of its ancestor’s 75th birthday. Right away you notice the lack of a roof and doors, a clear indicator of its roadster lineage. This majestic looking automobile is a finely tuned racing machine. The interior and exterior is made of carbon fiber, allowing the perfect ratio of durability and lightweight. Put simply, the car is gorgeous. It has leather straps that hold the hood down, how classy is that?

DIY Tuesday: Tell Me About It, Stud

February 28, 2012 | 11:00 AM | Her | By Alanna Watson

You see studs everywhere these days. They are toughening up jackets, punkifying handbags and adorning all of those denim cutoffs a girl just can’t live without. If you are struggling to find the perfect pair of studded shorts (let’s face it, there is only so much vintage to go around), why not just do it yourself? Think of it as the “bedazzling” of the 21st Century, only you don’t have ask your mom’s permission. Learn how in an awesome video with a British chick we found on YouTube after the jump. Spoiler alert: It’s so easy, you could probably do it after a few drinks at a dive bar, so be sure to hide the materials when stumbling home or your closet will end up looking like Avril Lavigne circa, well, now.
