This winter has been so hostile and brutal, I'm tempted to think that it's all been a promotional tactic from the makers of Star Wars to boost ticket sales, and we're all living on ice planet Hoth. When the weather turns mean, this frequently translates to cracked hand skin and flaky fingers. No good.
Lush has you covered, though, with their new Love And Light hand cream. This stuff is made with softening neroli and fair trade cocoa butter, and the Brazilian orange oil makes it smell delightful -- organic jojoba oil sinks into the skin, hydrating your paws without leaving them greasy or gross, and trust me, you're going to need the moisture when winter decides to gnaw on your hands.

You pride yourself on your good decisions after a night of drinking; you used Uber to get home, preemptively placed a big glass of water by your bedside, and managed to avoid drunk texting an ex before bed. Keep the responsible streak going and rehydrate your skin the morning after with Rodial's SUPER ACIDS X-Treme Hangover Mask. It's chock-full of exfoliating and moisture-enhancing fruit extracts. Wash up, apply the mask, and let it dry for 10 minutes while you make yourself a big pot of coffee. Rinse off and pat yourself on the back for being totally responsible.

If you want to dress for success you need to understand the concept of power dressing.
Modern power dressing is nothing like its 1980s forbearer, it's much less formal and instead only part style and part confidence (both are needed to guarantee your success in the workplace -- your clothes have to send a message to your colleagues and your boss).

Tweed jackets have been around for centuries, and some may feel that this heritage cloth belongs in the past and not in modern fashion, but we're here to tell you why that line of thinking is itself a little old.
Tweed emerged from Scotland in the 18th century and was loved for it's hardwearing sturdiness. Its twill construction ensured that it was a good insulator, and over the years the rugged fabric became a menswear staple.
However, designers recently breathed new life into this classic fabric, which is now a must-have garment for the fall and winter months for women as well as men.

On one hand, it's heartening to think about the coming spring; warmer weather and more sunshine are always welcome! On the other hand, spring is a messy, messy business. Most of it is spent gingerly dodging rain puddles and muddy patches in inadequate footwear because we've (wrongly) gambled on suede flats or cutesy heels.
Welcome this year's transitional season with preparation in the form of these Caldwell Rain Boots from Sam Edelman. Sure, it means a few extra weeks of packing your work shoes, but the rubber-soled duck boots are trendy in their own right and, better yet, are built to keep your feet warm and dry.

When you think of couple dressing you may remember Britney Spears' and Justin Timberlake's hideous denim ensembles they wore to the 2001 American Music Awards, and because of this you may have sworn never to dress in matchy-matchy outfits with your significant other. But just because this celeb couple ruined it for you doesn't mean you have to avoid matching outfits forever.

With a watch as stunning as Skagen's Anita Steel Mesh Watch, you can just, you know, estimate time. The face's small crystals pop like stars against the midnight blue background but don't exactly aid you in your quest to tell if it's exactly six oh three or maybe six oh four. (If you really have to know the exact time to the minute, you can just check your phone, right?) This watch is an elegant timepiece that's been perfectly designed to complement your business wear during the week, or help you gussy up a cute weekend frock.

No matter how great you look when you step out of the house, inevitably, accidents happen. From buttons popping off to staining a blouse and scuffing your shoes, sometimes you need more than just a sewing kit put yourself back together. Or at least until you can make it back home to change your outfit into one that isn't falling apart.

Basic fashion pieces don't always have to be boring. Consider this Applique Woven Tee from Eloquii. The versatile white top can be worn with just about anything; layer it under a cozy cardi or fitted jacket, use it to tone down a bright colored or large printed skirt, or rely on its great texture to bring a little fun to your work ensemble. Trust me, this top will stand out much more so than a solid knit tee or a simple camisole; it'll add depth, dimension, and polish to your look.

Feminine, functional and flattering--these are just three of the many adjectives that can be used to describe dresses and why women love them so much. Different dress styles suit different figures, but one universally flattering style is the sleeved dress.

The Victorians couldn't get enough of it. The Kardashians swear by it. But is waist training really all it's cracked up to be?
Though it's one of the newest crazes to hit Hollywood, waist training is hardly revolutionary. Women have used corsets for centuries to alter their shapes and appear slimmer. Nonetheless, the practice is coming back into the public eye thanks to a bevy of selfies featuring the Kardashian sisters, Amber Rose, and JWoww rocking waist trainers.
So when WaistShaperz, a New York City-based retailer specializing in shaping garments, approached Outblush with a sample waist trainer and an exclusive offer of 40% off an order with code BLUSH I was beyond excited. What kind of va-va-voom could a trainer create on my boyish figure? Not gonna lie, the thought of living when corsets were part of the daily uniform has intrigued me for a long time.

This Smooth Kinematics 116n Necklace by Nervous System, however, is printed for the everywoman. It boasts of a unique cut out shape, a smooth nylon finish, and a pretty humble price tag. It's a showstopper, so be sure to wear it with something subdued--an LBD or solid color top with a simple neckline will do!
