If you're not using this powerhouse beauty secret yet, what are you waiting for?
Winter is upon us, now. The air hollows itself out, offering only cold and wind. The ground is freezing, slowing, and stalling its growth. Grass browns, trees harden. Earth, it seems, pauses. Perhaps we would be wise to do the same. Winter arrives, for many of us,
As someone who grew up in Minnesota and now lives in southern California, I’ve experienced winter in all of its forms — from harsh blizzards to mild rains to full-on heat waves. Yet, there are some aspects of this season that remain consistent no matter
Our Beauty Editor's picks for adding a little sparkle to your makeup routine.
Winter can be a long, dark season, especially when you live in the land of endless snow. This time of year, it can be grey for weeks on end, the temperatures are sub-zero on a regular basis and the wind just cuts to the bone. It’s natural to look at this season as something to endure, a time of year to plow through and just barely survive, and hope against hope that our toes eventually warm up.
But no matter how often we give winter the cold shoulder in the hope that our disregard will eventually cause it to get the hint and stop dropping by, it continues to visit, year after year. So, you know what? I think it’s time for a new approach.

Let’s start off with a recap of the Darling Thanksgiving Dinner. (We know we’re a bit behind here, but we’re so thankful for this event and still want to share it!)
With a frigid winter this year in California, there’s definitely a need to bundle up and keep warm. The air is brisker and the winds are most definitely stronger.
But before you start whipping out your Big Bear gear, here are some ways to get into the winter spirit without over-doing it. The key is to keep it effortless and west coast weather-appropriate.
In spite of what the cozy sweaters, knit beanies, and insulating footwear do for the rest of our bodies, no matter what winter always seems to leave our hands pretty worse for wear.
Maybe it’s because we’re glued to our phones instead of our mittens, or with all the baking (or germs!) going around we’re more apt to wash our hands and rub them dry. Whatever the case, we thought it’d be helpful to run to the drugstore and hit a few online retailers for you testing out which hand creams truly salve the day. Curious? Keep reading!
Chai is synonymous with fall, in our opinion. Yet, while it may be the spice of the season, it can get pretty repetitive when its just on repeat in a mug.
That’s why we asked Amy Rothstein of Brooklyn-based Dona Chai (a current favorite around the office for its subtle, not-too-sweet flavor) to put together a complete morning-to-night menu using chai in some rather inventive ways. Below she’s sharing four unique ideas to get the most out of this delicious spice.
