Harry's: Influencers were given Harry's latest and greatest for Father's Day. Not only was it the perfect gift for dads, it is a staple that should be a part of their daily grooming. We love how these influencers created content around that. (Images by: @lvdmorethncrrts, @mommy_nannan, @lilies.and.lambs

Here at Obviously, it's safe to say that all of our team members are beauty junkies and constantly on the radar for new launches and collaborations. This past week, we noticed a few new launches that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Pat McGrath Lust Matte Trance: July, can you please hurry? We already know that people will be staying up all night to get these magical lippies into their carts. We're still swooning over all of the eye shadows and glitters she manifested but these lipsticks- please, we know these are going to be a total gamechanger in our beauty routine and will last all-day and all-night. Nobody does it better than Ms. McGrath! 

Equal Beauty by Jessica Gomes: Model, actress, and now beauty product founder, Jessica Gomes is nonstop! The super beautiful and mega talented Gomes has created a line of fragrance free beauty products that we cannot wait to try. If any of these products can give us the J. Gomes tszuj, count us IN. 

Kim Kardashian West: KKW BEAUTY

The queen of contour has finally made it happen for us beauty junkies. Kardashian West has created a lustful line of contour-made-easy products for anyone that is obsessed with sculpting and shaping their faces with makeup. Not to mention, the packaging is so 2017 and we are HERE FOR IT!

Get to Know: Fashion and Lifestyle Influencer Mariann Yip

We caught up with one of our top influencers, Mariann, and we're so excited she's this week's #GetToKnow influencer! We're always appreciative of her professionalism, her incredible hair, and her overall vibe. Check out the exclusive interview below! 

1) Name: Mariann Yip

2) Hometown: LES, Manhattan 

3) Favorite Social Media Platform: Instagram 

4) Favorite Photo Editing App: Photoshop and Snapseed

5) Favorite Spot in NYC to Take Photos: Definitely Soho! This is where most of my photos are taken because I love cobble stone streets and there are many alley ways and street corners that make for great backdrops.

6) Biggest Lesson You've Learned About Working with Brands: I've learned to only work with brands that align with my own values and image. As more opportunities have presented themselves, I am now more picky about who I work with. I also tend to work with brands that value me as a partner and genuinely support who I am and what I do. 

7) Favorite Project You've Worked on With Obvious.ly! My favorite project has to be the Furla collaboration because I am obsessed with their bags and I constantly wear it. It was also one of the first projects I've worked on with Obvious.ly and I was surprised that I had the opportunity to work with an amazing handbag brand like Furla. I am always featuring it in my photos because it has become one of my staple accessories!

8) Favorite Instagram Accounts to Follow and Why: I actually recently wrote a blog post about it here. I love @negin_mirsalehi because I look up to her for fashion style. I think she is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and I love following her journey and daily life as a blogger. I'm also a huge fan of @kenzas because I find her to be the most relatable blogger since we're close in age and share similar fashion interests and styles. I also love @taramilktea because her feed is flawless. I think she's a pure genius when it comes to editing her pictures and I find inspiration through her travel and creative feed. 

9) Favorite Restaurant in NYC and Why:  This is definitely a hard one because I am a huge foodie and have tons of places that I love. But if I had to choose I would say Clinton Street Bakery! My favorite meal of the day is breakfast and my favorite breakfast food is pancakes. Clinton Street Bakery serves the best pancakes in the world and I can guarantee if you go there, you'll understand why I am raving about this place! 

10) Favorite Store in NYC and Why: I can never leave Zara without a purchase! Zara is my favorite store in NYC, specifically the Soho location, because they offer a wide range of clothing. It is always in trend and affordable so what more can a girl ask for?
