The family will be enjoying a home-cooked meal “made with fresh vegetables from their garden.”
While September covers are the most anticipated of the year, December covers also have a lot to offer. Magazines tend to focus on the holidays to close out the year. Which we’re totally fine with. (Especially since 2020 was pretty horrible.) So we’re happy to report that many December 2020 covers embraced the season in style.
Six years ago, my family experienced a huge scare when my then 65-year-old mom was rushed to the ER in order to receive an emergency cardioversion—aka a medical paddle used to restart her heart. The day before the trip to the emergency room, we’d been traveling, and my mom (who has since discovered she has an extreme sensitivity to sugar) had a pumpkin spice latte and an almond-filled French pastry for breakfast and then later on after dinner a small vanilla ice cream cone. As she explains, it was enough sugar (at least for her) to send her heart into atrial fibrillation, or an uneven heart rhythm.
“As scary as the experience was, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise,” she tells me. “I banished heavy sugar doses from my diet and noticed that my skin started looking better. Soon after this, I forced myself to watch a … Read the rest
We’re all well aware that Lily-Rose Depp is affiliated with Chanel. Since 2015 she’s appeared in the French fashion house’s eyewear campaigns and mainline ads (alongside Cara Delevingne), worn Chanel on countless magazines covers (even posing with Karl Lagerfeld on Vogue Paris) and became the face of the brand’s N°5 L’Eau scent. So we aren’t surprised to see the young model starring in Chanel’s Cruise 2021 campaign captured posing around the grounds of a Mediterranean villa by Karim Sadli.
“It’s Chanel x H&M?” wondered an unimpressed thatsfierce.
There’s no denying the fact that Americans are obsessed with French-girl style. As we’ve discussed pretty tirelessly, Parisian women dress in a way that, for whatever reason, American girls aspire to achieve. Normally, we ask our favorite French girls all about the items they’re buying, wearing, loving, etc., so that we can all go off and make our purchases accordingly, but this time we wanted to switch it up. Intrigued yet?
We reached out to a handful of our favorite French women and asked them what, if anything, it is about American style that makes them laugh. I tried guessing before I asked them the daunting question, but my answers were nowhere close to what they had to say. When it comes to the differences between American and French style, these Parisian ladies have quite a few things to say. Ahead, find out what French girls said they find … Read the rest
Around the holidays we all feel a little stressed out. But it’s generally a happy time as we anticipate gifts and the start of a new year. After all that excitement, it makes sense that we may feel a little glum come January 2. Especially with the ongoing pandemic. Plunging temps and inches of snow don’t help matters.
The Winter Blues
All of this can lead to a serious medical condition called seasonal affective disorder, fittingly known as SAD. “SAD is a type of depression that’s caused or related to the decreased amount of sunlight during the winter months,” explains Stephanie Catalano, LCSW and author of Mindful Makeover. The sun gives off UV rays and vitamin D, which cause serotonin to be released in our bodies.
I’m really sorry to say it, but when it comes to our body, time takes its toll on just about all of it. And although we know all too well what aging does to our skin, when it comes to other areas of our beauty regimens, age is rarely factored in. From swapping in serums that tackle fine lines and wrinkles to acid treatments that work against age spots and pigmentation, products that cater to aging skin seem to be everywhere.
But what about our hair? It turns out that besides going gray, aging can affect our hair in a number of ways. From thinning to dryness, the ways in which our hair deals with getting older means that as time goes by, we may need to change up our routines. And one of the most effective ways we can do that is by trying out a new … Read the rest

Normcore was the fashion buzzword a few seasons back, but it has since been replaced by other trending words. Like athleisure and grandpa fashion. But normcore is far from done. Those who thought it peaked with the socks-and-sandals frenzy will notice it has made a comeback. Just look at all the boilersuits, turtlenecks, mom jeans and — wait for it — fleece out there.
