With Memorial Day weekend finally here, it’s safe to say that we have definitely entered pedi season. Whether you’re heading to the salon to get your tootsies groomed or DIYing it, you probably have quite a few nail polish bottles scattered around your house (or buried underneath your bathroom sink in a wicker basket). If you haven’t taken a look at those precious OPI or Essie bottles in months, do us a favor and look now. Did you look? Good. Did you see that gross oil-y layer separating from the pigment in each bottle? Guess what–it’s not that the polish is cheap, or that it went bad on its own. The problem is you–you’re just storing them wrong!
When nail polish is stored upside down or to the side, it begins to separate and gets damaged. Additionally, those dollar store plastic bins take up a ton of space (which, if you’re a city girl, you know you’re kind of short on). Plus, when they’re all jumbled up in there, each polish becomes impossible to see.
Enter the Color Clutch. It’s a pretty simple concept: the case doesn’t take up more space than a book, and has a clear lid, which allows you to see each polish in the case. The foam in the case also has a flexible tab, allowing for any-size bottle to fit into the case. The most important part? Each polish will be stored upright, which will help prevent separating.
And just because we want to show off, check out how well it photographs for Insta:

Many of us grew up hearing about the dangers of UVA and UVB rays and, thanks to the abundance of information out there, we’ve been fortunate to know that protecting our skin from an early age from the harmful effects of sun exposure is essential. If you diligently apply sunscreen to your face every morning, even on cloudy days,pat yourself on the back for the steps you’re taking to reduce your risk of contracting skin cancer and ward off wrinkles.
Sadly, that’s still not enough. According to many dermatologists and skin experts, most of us are forgetting to apply SPF to parts of our bodies that are just as susceptible to sun damage as our cheeks and noses. “When it comes to applying sunscreen, just about everyone misses a spot or two,” said beauty expert Jacquie Carter of Discover Good Beauty. The result? “Short term it can be an uncomfortable sunburn. Long term it can be sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles, or even skin cancer. If you are outdoors and you have a body part that isn’t fully covered, then chances are it is susceptible to damage,” Carter explains.
Not to fear, however. We consulted some of the top skin experts to help identify the 8 places on your body that are begging for sunscreen.
1. Feet. We tend to ignore the thin skin on our feet because we don’t like the way sunscreen feels on them–slippery, slimy, and sticky, Carter says. But that’s no excuse! “With today’s sunscreen technologies and lightweight formulas this shouldn’t be a problem,” Carter says. “What is a problem is burned feet and that dreadful flip-flop tan. Even when you are just standing in the water at the beach or your pool the sun’s rays can reach and damage your feet. They aren’t protected just because they are under water.”
2. Back of the hands. We apply sunscreen using the palms of our hands, but we often forget to rub some on the backs of our hands, as well. “This is the one area of the body that can expose our ‘true’ age if we aren’t careful because they can really show the signs of sun damage and premature aging,” Carter says. “The hands are the most exposed to the sun on a daily basis. Hands on the steering wheel of the car, riding a bike, working in the garden, pushing a baby stroller, playing golf. Just short-term exposure to the sun on a regular basis can be extremely damaging over time.” Your best bet: carry around a travel-size sunscreen like SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF Travel Samples and reapply a few times a day.
3. Ears. I never apply sunscreen to my ears because a) I don’t want lotion in my hair and b) I figure I can hide my ears with my long hair. Lesson learned. “It’s important to note that every bit of your ear is subject to burning and to skin cancer,” Carter says. “If you are just putting a dab of sunscreen on your ear lobes you aren’t doing enough. The entire ear, the back, the lobe and even the nooks and crannies need to have sunscreen on them. And it really doesn’t matter if your hair is short or long–you need to protect yourself.”
4. Lips. Our lips lack the protective outer layer of skin we have on our bodies called the stratum corneum, Carter explains, making them especially susceptible to sun damage. A lip balm that contains at least SPF 30–Supergoop! Fusion Lip Balm with SPF 30+ is my favorite–should be applied and reapplied throughout the day.
5. Scalp. We put enough pressure on our hair to look gorgeous at all times–we shouldn’t expect it to do the job of an SPF, as well. “Yes, hair does protect the scalp but women with less of it, or hair that is parted, leave their scalp skin vulnerable,” says Dr. Fayne L. Frey, a dermatologist and founder of Fry Face. “Sunscreen applied to bald spots and part lines is recommended. And of course, wearing a hat is also advised.”
6. Back of knees. But they’re so hard to reach! Again, not a good excuse. Find a buddy or put your yoga poses to good use. “Folks often apply sunscreen on the thighs and backs of the legs and then apply it on the shins and calves,” Frey says. “But all too often, the back of the knees, in the crease, is overlooked. Sunburns in this sensitive area is painful.” Don’t forget to apply sunscreen in the creases behind the knees!
7. Under straps. How many of us think to lift our bathing suit or tank top and apply SPF beneath the straps? Now, how many of us are lucky enough to have bathing suits and bar straps that never slip? See where I’m going with this? “It is common to apply sunscreen around the straps of a shirt or bathing suit,” Frey says. “But all too often those straps move and the underlying skin is vulnerable. Apply sunscreen underneath those shirt and bathing suit straps.”
8. Around the eyes. A lot of women shy away from applying sunscreen around their eyes because they don’t want to get it into their eyes and cause irritation, says Dr. Jill Waibel, a dermatologist at Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute. But, if one of our goals is to combat the signs of aging, we are doing ourselves a huge disservice ignoring this delicate part of our bodies. “Around the eyes is actually one of the places that ages the fastest, and also shows signs of aging the most,” Waibel says. “I recommend using Avene Tinted Compact as it is a foundation that doubles as a sunscreen with SPF 50.”

With all that work you’re putting in planning the perfect wedding, you definitely deserve a night out. The bachelorette party is a time when you and your best girls can kick back and relax. Whether you’re planning an evening out or a getaway, you might run into some questions about the event. Don’t fear–we have the answers you’re looking for to make sure everyone has a night (or weekend) to remember.
Who pays for the bachelorette party? While everyone usually chips in to cover the cost of the bride’s food and drinks for a night out, if you’re planning a weekend away you can’t expect all of your expenses to be paid by your bridal party and other guests. So sit down with your MOH and figure out who will pay for what–and that everyone is on the same page before the event.
Do I have to invite all of my female guests? No–the bachelorette party is usually reserved for the bridal party and any close girlfriends. But it’s really up to the bride, so if you want to include your mom, future MIL, favorite aunt or anyone else you want, then feel free. Just make sure whoever you ask to join in on the fun is also going to be invited to the wedding.
Should we do a joint bachelor/bachelorette party? While there is a growing trend towards couples having a joint celebration, it’s really up to you and your groom. If it’s a weekend away, it might be fun to have the entire bridal party together so they can bond. This also works well if there are any couples in your bridal party–it might be easier for them to schedule everything for the same night or weekend (especially if they have to travel for the event, need to arrange childcare, pet sitting, etc.).
What about guests that don’t drink? Your friends who don’t drink can still have a good time with everyone, especially if you’re planning other activities that don’t involve alcohol, like going to a spa during the day, then dinner and drinks. If you plan on spending all of your time at the local bar or club getting wasted, though, you should tell your pal it’s okay if she wants to leave after an hour or so. No matter what, you want to make sure anyone who chooses to stay sober isn’t made to feel uncomfortable about it.
Are there any ideas that don’t involve drinking at all? Of course! From a spa day and cooking classes to mud runs and thrill rides, there is plenty of fun to be had that doesn’t require you to even sip a cocktail. You can check out our list of ideas here.
What if some bridesmaids can’t afford what the brides wants to do? Your bridesmaids are buying a (likely) pricey dress and shoes to wear for your big day–the last thing you want is for them to go into serious debt for your bachelorette. If you have your heart set on a weekend away, by all means do it. But don’t get mad or pressure anyone to join you who simply don’t have the funds to cover it. Instead, plan a local, more low-key night out with those ladies when you get back.
Kourtney Kardashian exited her L.A. Dash store with her hands full of new purchases, including what she was wearing (we assume this is what the Kardashian sisters do when they go to Dash). She is rocking serious flare jeans and well, we aren’t hating them. Her McGuire Majorelle Flare Jeans in Oceana ($218) are both distressed and belled, making them really on point this season. Wonder if Dash is selling out fast… not to worry we have them for you below. Shop away!

Living like there’s no tomorrow might be a good philosophy sometimes, but when it comes to your beauty routine? Not so much. By your mid-20s, you should have amassed quite an arsenal of beauty habits to help the next few decades go by more smoothly (or, at least the next few years). Besides, the more effort you put in now, the less you’re likely to be in a total panic by the time you hit your 40s.
Take a look at this checklist of beauty habits you need to have (and need to break) by your 20s. You’re welcome, from the future you.
1. Remove your makeup before bed. We’ve all had nights out when the last thing we can think about is taking off our mascara, but trust me, it’s absolutely necessary. Forgetting to remove your makeup will not only stain your pillowcase, but it may lead to breakouts, fine lines and in the case of mascara and eyeshadow, even serious irritation. To be blunt: sleeping in your makeup after a wild night out is recipe for a skin disaster–period. If you don’t have time to properly cleanse your face, keep makeup wipes by your bed. I’m a big fan of the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.
2. Apply sunscreen–rain or shine. Your future self will be grateful for this. Apply SPF on your face, neck and hands (as well as any other parts of your body that might be exposed) to help prevent premature signs of aging. Applying your daily dose of SPF 30 takes no more than an extra few seconds, and it’s also way less expensive than having to dabble in luxurious anti-aging creams and treatments ten or twenty years down the road.
3. Fake bake–the right way. Unless you’re craving a side of cancer with your Snooki-like tan, you’d better get your booty out of the tanning bed and to a spray tanner (or to your local Sephora to pick up tanning oils, lotions, and creams that give you a much more natural glow).
4. Clean your makeup brushes. Clean brushes (and Beauty Blenders, if you’re that sort of gal) don’t distribute the oil, old makeup, dirt and bacteria that uncleaned tools do. Always either shampoo or spot clean your sponges and brushes to keep them from potentially causing breakouts.
5. Quit smoking–for good. Besides the obvious health risks associated with smoking, the effects a pack a day has on your skin are not pretty. The skin around our mouth puckers with each cigarette, which can cause deep wrinkles down the road. Your teeth also get stained from the nicotine, plus smokers’ hair thins and grays quicker than that of a non-smoker. Do yourself (and your skin) a favor and drop that cig.
6. Say hello to retinol. You can never start fighting the aging battle too early. Introduce a light retinol into your routine to help combat premature wrinkles and fine lines. My favorite is REN Skincare Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Concentrate, which is gentle enough even on the most sensitive skin.
7. Don’t OD on exfoliating. Your cells reproduce easily enough in your 20s, so why attack them with a scrub and a cleansing brush? Use a light scrub to start, and once your cells aren’t regenerating as quickly in your thirties and forties, go in with the big guns.

FOMO (fear of missing out) is something we all experience, but it’s reached a new level thanks to social media. For example, you go on Instagram during your family reunion, when you should be talking to your third cousin twice removed, only to see your friends having fun without you, and suddenly, your world comes crashing down. It’s over. Nothing you do with them will ever be as fun as these few hours they spent together when you weren’t there. This jealousy mixed with obsessively checking your feeds is known as digital anxiety. Here are 5 ways to recognize when it’s happening to you:

Here’s a thought, NBC: maybe Xtina should be a judge on a new show called The Impersonator? Ya? Sounds good?
It’s never fun or easy to talk about facial hair. Upon hearing those two embarrassing words, many of us change the subject, instinctively shield our lip area with our hands, and go on believing we’re the only women on the planet plagued by unwanted hair.
Well, chin up because more than 20 million American women are performing weekly facial hair removal rituals–some in salons, others behind (locked) bathroom doors. And there’s one thing we all have in common: we want to know the absolute best and worst ways we can wage war on facial hair. Here’s the scoop on 6 popular hair removal methods.
Pros: Waxing temporarily removes hair at the root for around three weeks and is not very expensive, says dermatologist and author Dr. Debra Jaliman. It takes a lot longer to grow back then shaving and, after repeated sessions, may not grow back as thick.
Cons: You’ll need patience–something most women who see pesky facial hairs sprout up in random places do not have in abundance. “Waxing need some regrowth in order to be effective so you need some stubble,” Jaliman says. “Also the treatments can be painful and can lead to ingrown hairs. If you’re using retinoids and waxing, the wax can pull off the top layer of your skin. And if you’re using hot wax it can burn you.”
Pros: If you’re in a rush and want to remove hair at home, Jaliman says depilatories–creams that contain chemicals that weaken your hair so you can just wipe it away– are convenient. “It’s painless and it’s inexpensive,” she says.
Cons: Dermatologist Dr. Chynna Steele has some choice words to share about her feelings on depilatories: “The worst option is a depilatory because it is caustic to the skin and can burn or irritate the skin,” Steele says. “Additionally, it’s completely temporary and the hair grows back quickly because you only remove the portion that is above the skin (versus taking it from the root).”
3. Laser hair removal.
Pros: The laser penetrates to the hair follicle and inhibits growth, which can lead to permanent hair removal, Jaliman says. Consider a life of freedom from razor stubble and ingrown hairs a pretty sweet perk, as well.
Cons: Laser treatment can be expensive–even more so when you consider the fact that one or two sessions isn’t usually enough for most clients. “After your initial set up treatments, which are about 5-6 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart, you will still have to do maintenance for long term results, which may be a treatment every 6 months or so (although it varies per patient),” Steele says. Do your homework before you choose a laser technician, as one of the risks of a bad treatment is burning, Jaliman warns. And, sorry ladies, but if you have blonde or grey hair, lasers aren’t going to work for you.
Pros: Electrolysis, which uses a fine needle to apply an electric current to the hair follicle, is good for small areas–and, after several sessions, can be permanent, Jaliman says.
Cons: Can you say commitment? “It takes many treatments,” Steele says. “It is hard for any provider to tell you how many because they say it varies from patient to patient. Treatment commonly lasts several months and can be years.” As with laser treatments, find a quality electrolysis, because if done improperly, it can lead to “ice pick scars and skin discoloration,” Jaliman says.
Pros: Got just a few stubborn, stray hairs? Grab your trusty tweezer. “Tweezing is a fine method of hair removal, but obviously is only reasonable when you have a few hairs (like those random chin hairs),” Steele says. “It removes the hair from the root so it tends to last longer than something like a depilatory.”
Cons: Unless you want to spend hours in the bathroom, only tweeze if you can count the number of hairs on your face. And don’t dig deep. “You can get in big trouble with causing sores, scabs, etc. in the skin by trying to ‘get hairs out’ that you believe are stuck under the skin,” Steele says. “If you tend to get ingrown hairs or hair bumps then I highly recommend laser treatment or using a cream that minimizes the bumps. Prescription Retin A cream, anti-inflammatory creams and antibiotic creams are good options.”
Pros: Like waxing, threading is a good option because it’s safe, affordable and salons that offer the service can be found in most cities and towns. “Because they both remove hair from the root, the hair removal lasts longer than something like shaving or a depilatory,” Steele says.
Cons: Ingrown hairs are always a possibility with threading and you’ll have to deal with the pain of growing your hair long enough so that it can be pulled out. And then there are aesthetic risks. “If someone isn’t careful they can take off too much hair, especially from your eyebrows,” Jaliman says.

If you’re thinking, “What sense does a leather tank top make?” you’re not alone. We initially had the same thought. But then we saw Rihanna rocking this Iris & Ink Ava leather top ($255) and we were like, “Hmm, it actually works.”
Now if you aren’t brave enough to pair a leather tank with head to toe camo like Riri, start slow with skinny jeans and some heels or even a trendy denim pencil and sandals. We promise you won’t sweat to death, but you will look sexy as hell.

The good news: earlier today Loeffler Randall sent out an email announcing they’d taken 30% off a bunch of their spring styles. The bad news: when I tried to get to their website it was down. Eek!
When I finally got on, I saw why the site was so slow–the prices are really good. Sadly, a lot of sizes were already sold out, but all hope isn’t lost as there is some merch still in stock. We can’t say for how long, though, so if you’re a Loeffler diehard you’d better get over there ASAP.
