A Genius Workout Tool From a Celeb Trainer

Aug/18/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We first heard about this from Jennifer Garner, who calls the at-home fitness find a “wonder” and “incredibly effective,” adding that you feel results after using it just one time. She’s not kidding. It makes push-ups, squats, lunges, crunches and every other circuit training move even more muscle-burning, but at the same time, less miserable (this editor basically refuses to do a regular push-up now that she’s tried the modified push-up using this tool).

They’re deceptively simple (yes, we know, they look sort of like those furniture movers), but like we said, they’re also pretty genius. We felt like we were engaging our muscles way more when we used the Valslide as compared to doing the same moves without the tool. And we certainly felt more of a burn the next day. Let’s put it this way, if you’re going to spend time doing crunches or lunges or squats or push-ups, don’t you want to get the most out of your workout? Adding these sliders does just that.

We break them out when we’re watching TV and are feeling too lazy to go to a workout class. And because the Valslide is so compact, you can also keep a set in your suitcase and use them when you’re traveling and far away from your gym.

And as we show in the video, the Valslide, which was created by celeb trainer Valerie Waters, are padded so you can comfortable rest your knees or hands or feet on them. Plus, each comes with a cloth baggie or “sock” so you can use the tool on hardwood floor or carpeting.

The First Fall Purchase You Should Make: This Edgy Jacket

Aug/11/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

You’re definitely familiar with Blank NYC clothing. The brand has a huge celebrity fan base (Jessica Alba, Alessandra Ambrósio and Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few), so it’s no surprise Joyus loves to feature their stylish items all the time. And we fell in love with this super-chic, super-classic, super-easy to wear jacket.

Thanks to the vegan leather sleeves and wool blend combo, this topper is an instant outfitmaker. It’s perfect with skinnies and a simple tee, or teamed with a black dress. (We’d even consider wearing it with a pair of black workout leggings after spin class, you know, for those days when you run a few errands before you get around to showering.)

And while no one wants summer to end, adding the draped design to your fall wardrobe sooner rather than later will make the transition a lot easier. One thing: You better act fast since it’s so affordable (under $100 for first time Joyus shoppers if you use STYLE15 at checkout), we have a feeling it’s gonna sell out crazy quick.

How would you wear this jacket? What else are you excited to buy for fall? Share your thoughts below!

Love These Featherweight Rose Gold Earrings!

Aug/04/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

When we first shared designer April Soderstrom’s featherweight earrings with you last fall, the jewelry sold like crazy. And really, we weren’t surprised. April’s hoops are so light that you don’t realize they’re in … until someone compliments you on them (which happens a lot when you’re wearing her designs). And now she’s offering two earrings in a gorgeous rose-gold finish.

The fish hoop is one of the designer’s best-selling styles and the hoop with the dangling Swarovski crystal is exclusive so you can’t get it anywhere but right here! And like we mention in the video, that one doubles as a simple hoop, too — just slide off the crystal to convert it.

Click here to order the earrings. And don’t forget to enter STYLE15 at checkout to get an extra 15% off the price (valid for first-time Joyus shoppers only).

And be sure to check out more stuff we love — all eligible for that exclusive discount! — here.

Introducing: The Waist-Slimming Skirt You'll Wear Every Season

Jul/28/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

There are certain pieces of clothing hanging in our closets that we know we’ll be wearing for years: black blazers, wrap dresses, blue skinny jeans, trench coats and this midi skirt, which is under 80 bucks with our exclusive discount code.

We’re putting the faux leather skirt into the category of “Will Probably Still Be Wearing This in a Decade” because it’s got a really timeless silhouette. It makes the waistline appear trimmer, makes your hips and butt look just the right kind of curvy and looks good on everything from the slimmest to the curviest legs (no wonder it’s a timeless silhouette).

There are plenty of real leather skirts out there, but we’re particularly fond of this faux version because the material is much more breathable, which means we’ve already starting wearing ours — with tanks and sandals — even though it’s the middle of summer. And obviously, we like the price on this midi, significantly lower than a real leather piece. (And even lower if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper since you get an extra 15% off by entering STYLE15 at checkout.)

Order it now and by this winter, the cost-per-wear will be practically nothing.

This Gorgeous Bag Does Something Other Bags Don't

Jul/21/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Well, we could tell you what it does … or we could just show you. Watch the video below to find out why editors are going crazy for this tote (which is actually three bags in one).

Yep, this editor was ready to buy the tote even before she realized it could be flipped inside out to reveal a different color — and that it contained a removable crossbody, perfect for travel or days when you’re not carrying as much stuff.

Once you decide which color(s) to get, be sure to enter STYLE15 at checkout to get an extra 15% off the already totally doable price tag (for new Joyus shoppers only).

And shop more stuff we love here!

The Fitness Find That'll Make Crunches Less Miserable (and More Effective)

Jul/14/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

You know how those huge blowup stability balls always seem like a good idea when you buy one then you get it home and realize it’s impractical, annoying to use and doesn’t seem to do much for your core? So you retire it to the back of the closet and almost never use it again? We know that scenario all to well — which is why we were hesitant to get this mini peanut-shaped version. But as soon as we tested out the portable piece of equipment (and realized it does so much more than tone abs), we were won over. This is definitely not ending up in the back of the closet.

The ball comes with an instructional DVD that shares moves to get your core and lower body toned, as well as a travel-size pump to fill up the peanut. And as always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you get an extra 15% off your order (enter STYLE15 at checkout). Which would make the ball and DVD cost less than $13.

Order it by clicking on the product in the carousel below the video or by clicking here.
