It’s that time of year again, so allow us to get this out of the way: “Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.” But much like the seasonal flowery finery from Canadian brands like Narces, Judith & Charles, and Smythe, these cannabis accessories are in homage to your more-than-average spring buds. And from foliage to branches to fruit, there’s no end to the natural selection of 4/20 accessories out there to perk up your next session. To heighten the ambiance, we’ve included some scents that will make any room bloom.… Read the rest
My summer is looking a bit different this year: I don’t have any international getaways planned, all of my group trips are on hiatus, and now my patio has become my source of capturing that vacation feeling. As I sit on my outdoor chairs and sip on a homemade (and poorly mixed) cocktail, in my mind its an Aperol Spritz, and I’m aboard a yacht along the pastel shores of the Amalfi Coast. It’s a bit of a stretch, and a long way from anywhere in Italy, but what’s been helping me at least transport there mentally, is wearing a chic designer bikini.
As much as I love a good bargain, even I succumb to the beauty of a designer swimsuit. From the luxurious looking fabrics to the one of a kind details, it’s really hard to pass up a fancy bikini when the design is right. Right now I’ve … Read the rest
What do you get when combine the mega-watt star power of Julia Roberts, the youthful creativity of Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan and the legacy of Chopard timepieces? A positively joyful interpretation of the iconic Swiss luxury watch and jewellery house’s free-spirited ethos that feels like a balm for the soul during these uncertain times. Roberts and Dolan joined forces for Chopard’s new Happy Diamonds campaign and the joie de vivre is palpable as Roberts shimmies to the sounds of “Upside Down” by Paloma Faith. Yes, it could have something to do with Roberts’s famously radiant 24-carat smile.
Get a sneak peek of Roberts, looking fresh in a white puff-sleeve blouse and blue jeans, in the new campaign ahead of its launch.

If you’re not familiar with Emily DiDonato’s name, you’d probably recognize her face from the countless Maybelline ads she’s appeared in (she became the face of the brand when she was fresh out of high school) or her modeling for Victoria’s Secret and countless other designers. She’s only 30 and has already had an impressive career that has given her opportunities to collaborate with some of the best makeup artists and hairstylists in the industry. “I’ve been on set for thousands of photoshoots, have tried so many products, and picked up so many tips and tricks along the way,” says … Read the rest
British actor Ed Skrein is most well-known for his roles in Game of Thrones, the superhero feature Deadpool and the war flick Midway, which might explain why he’s garnered somewhat of a macho reputation. However, he wants you to forget everything you think you know about him.
We caught up with Skrein to chat about one of his latest roles outside of film — starring in the ad campaign for the Carolina Herrera fragrance, Bad Boy, alongside Karlie Kloss (who is the face of the brand’s Good Girl fragrance).
Below, Ed Skrein tells us why he’s over outdated notions of masculinity, why crying feels so good and the feeling he wishes he could capture in a scent.
What drew you to the Bad Boy fragrance?
I was immediately attracted to the freshness and the deep, dark sensuality of Bad Boy. It makes me think of my good and … Read the rest
A good hair day gives me the same feeling I get when a Corgi passes me on my walk, or after a hard workout, or even a spoonful of peanut butter. A really good hair day makes me feel warm and fuzzy, ridiculously happy, and carefree. You know what else it makes me feel? Like I’m a confident 30-something with her life together, and that, my friends, is no easy feat.
It’s hard to come across clean and effective products that cater to all hair types and make you (and your locks) feel as if you just left the salon. Briogeo, which recently launched at Ulta Beauty, claims to be and do all of the above (plus every product is free of sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, DEA, and artificial dyes, which is just an added bonus). The beauty editor in me needed to find out the truth, so I enlisted … Read the rest

On April 20, Michael Kors is unveiling its Fall 2021 collection, and you can livestream the show right here at 9:00AM EST. Return back next week to see the thumbnail above transform into your own front row seat. This is a milestone for the American label, as it celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

We get it—it’s a little painful to fork over large sums of money on undergarments and the like that rarely see the light of day. Equally painful is wasting your hard-earned cash on lingerie that lives up to the old “you get what you pay for” adage. That’s why we made it our mission to share with you the brands that do affordable lingerie the best, from fast fashion (think Topshop) to niche labels (think Baserange).
Our advice when shopping for affordable underwear, bras, slips, and sleepwear? Stick to muted or classic hues (they look more expensive than bright colors) and avoid embellishments and prints when you’re going for a high-end look. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it makes. Keep scrolling to check out the brands we recommend and shop our picks from each.
