The Mini (But Mighty) Tote Bag You Need Now

Jan/21/2016 at 06:00 AM ET

Are you starting to resent that extraordinarily oversize tote bag you shuffle between home and the office every day? Who are we kidding, they’ve been a pain (literally!) since the day we started carrying them. Thankfully this two-tone tote is the solution to all of our problems — thanks to its mini size, but mighty storing-power.

This piece can magically fit all of those large-size essentials (iPad, waterbottle, change of shoes) without adding extra bulk and weight. It’s also versatile in that you can wear it as a handbag with the handlebar strap or as a crossbody bag thanks to the detachable long strap.

We also love that it comes in a white and black colorblock design because the clean color palette means it looks good with absolutely any outfit. And of course, the black is on the bottom layer so you don’t have to worry about it getting dirty carrying it around town.

So save the oversize options for weekend getaways and snag this wear-everywhere piece now, because you can only get it right here.

You Can Have Hair as Glossy as Princess Kate's with This Special Cleansing Conditioner

Jan/18/2016 at 06:00 AM ET

If you’ve been trying to recreate Princess Kate’s infamously perfect blowouts for years now, you may want to sit down for this. It turns out, the secret behind her glossy locks is all thanks to a special two-in-one cleansing formula, that’s only been available in the U.K. (until now!) and only costs — wait for it — $12!

You can only get this formula in the U.S. through our exclusive deal and to celebrate the state-side release, we caught up with Kate’s stylist, Richard Ward to find out what makes this product so different than other shampoo and conditioner duos.

It all has to do with its sulfate-free, paraben-free formula, which doesn’t strip the hair of its natural oils and helps prolong color-treated hair (since there’s no detergent included).

Another thing that makes it so special is what is included — it’s chock full of botanical ingredients (green tea, aloe vera and vitamin A), a.k.a. items that help hair retain its natural “goodness.”

And because it’s free of sulfates it doesn’t suds up like a traditional shampoo, instead it’s meant to be messaged gently onto the hair and work as both a cleanser and conditioner. There you have it! Just this one product is all you need for a mane as enviable as Princess Kate’s!

This Dress Is a Winter Wardrobe Staple (And Here's Why You Need to Snag It Now!)

Jan/14/2016 at 06:00 AM ET

You know that feeling when you buy a new piece of clothing and you just can’t stop wearing it all the time? We’re currently experiencing it with our favorite new dress. But how could we not be when it hits that winter-wear shopping trifecta? It’s insanely comfortable, is universally flattering and comes in a super cool mixed media material.

What sets this apart from other shift dresses you own is the fabric. It combines the refined, ladylike boucle material with edgy faux-leather bottom trim. Mixed media is a really hot clothing trend now, but thankfully since these two fabrics are timeless, you never have to worry about this dress falling out of style.

Now on to that other detail we mentioned — comfort. This piece feels as soft as a sweatshirt and thanks to its incredibly slimming design, it never feels tight or uncomfortable. The reason it looks good on every body type is because it subtly nips in at the waist to create a flattering hourglass shape (a.k.a. you’ll want to wear this piece to work everyday).

So now that you know why we’re calling this a winter-wear must-have here’s why you need to act now — this (under $90) dress is only available right here.

The Cheetah-Print Sweatshirt That's Totally Work-Appropriate

Jan/13/2016 at 06:00 AM ET

Sometimes it’s hard to jump on board a street style trend. You never know how long a piece will stay relevant and it usually calls for a very specific situation in which to wear it. But surprisingly the most shocking style stars (Gwen Stefani, Beyoncé and Rita Ora) have been spotted in cheetah-print sweatshirts, and we found a look for (way) less that you can wear anywhere.

When we say you can wear this sweatshirt anywhere we’re not exaggerating — it’s been in our work-wear wardrobe rotation all season. The key to taking the trend from the wild into the office is by styling it as you would a sweater. So pair it with a skirt or trouser and heels and you’re set (and maybe throw on a blazer for even extra polish!).

Another thing we love is that it won’t go out of style next year. Cheetah print is timeless, and the traditional crew neck design is a classic, so it’s a piece that’s a bonafide winter-wear staple.

And we’d be remiss not to tell you how incredibly comfortable it is. We’re talking so comfy we actually keep it on when we come home from the office (the skirt and heels, not so much).

What We're Loving: Star Ear Climbers

Jan/11/2016 at 03:12 PM ET

There have been two prominent jewelry trends on red carpets lately: star-prints and ear climbers. Anne Hathaway and Cara Delevingne like to solidify their “star” status in the print while just about every other major starlet has been spotted in climbers. Luckily, this (under-$40!) piece combines all of the red carpet trends in a wear-everywhere design.

Here’s the thing about ear climbers — they look like they would require multiple piercings (which makes them super edgy), but actually don’t! You just feed the earring through one piercing and it “climbs” up your ear.

Stars tend to make the unconventional piece look really refined on the red carpet by dazzling them out with diamonds and crystals, but this simple silver and gold finish makes it ideal to transition into casual outfits.

We guarantee you’ll get tons of compliments on this piece, so take our advice and add a few pairs to your shopping cart — they’re only $39 and make ideal gifts for girlfriends!

Staying Hydrated Has Never Been Easier Thanks to This Gorgeous New Water Bottle Print

Jan/04/2016 at 06:00 AM ET

New year, new S’Well! If you’re ready to get into a healthier mindset after one too many holiday cookies (aren’t we all?) then you need to check out this genius find. Our favorite S’Well water bottles are back in the prettiest print yet, and just in time to commit to your New Year’s resolution of staying more hydrated. Because with a print this beautiful, you can’t help but carry it with you everywhere.

The reason S’Well bottles are unlike any other is because of its beauty-and-brains combo. It’s designed to keep drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. And it also produces absolutely no condensation so you can stash it in a bag without worrying if other contents will get wet. Oh, and they come in fancy new prints.

The new wood-inspired pattern comes in a variety of three colors, blonde wood, lily wood and dark forest. Since they’re all equally gorgeous, we won’t blame you for putting one of every shade in your shopping cart.

And just when you thought a water bottle couldn’t get cooler, the 25 ounce size can actually store an entire bottle of wine. (We know this is supposed to help you stay healthier in 2016, but everyone needs a cheat day!)

The Tinted Moisturizer Major Hollywood A-Listers Love

Dec/21/2015 at 06:00 AM ET

Have you ever wondered how stars keep that just-came-back-from-the-beach glow all-year round? (I mean, have you ever seen Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez looking anything but radiant?) Well, we (finally!) found out their secret! It’s all thanks to Scott Barnes’ Body Bling tinted moisturizer. It blends unbelievably well into the skin, matches every skin tone and applies insanely easily. In fact, we’re so obsessed with the product, we had to catch up with the master himself.

Barnes explains that he wanted the product to be a skin-perfecting treatment, rather than a traditional self-tanner with his two Body Bling products. Platinum is a champagne shade for those who don’t tend to tan very well (he says it’s the shade he uses on Madonna!), while the Original is slightly darker. But both blend into the skin completely naturally (just check out the video above to see them both in action).

Not only does it give you the most gorgeous glow of your life, it’s so, so easy to use because of its moisturizing ways. Unlike self-tanning products, this doesn’t stain your clothes, won’t leave messy streaks and doesn’t have that strong “self-tanner” smell. (In short, it hit the tanning trifecta.)

Just think of Body Bling as your #nofilter secret weapon.
