    Next, instead of my usual spritz of perfume I use a soap in the same scent, and I've replaced my moisturizer with a spritz of hydrating rosewater. And speaking of hydration, I drink a full liter of water the moment I wake up. By the time I have my first sip of (iced) coffee, I'm ready for whatever summer has up its sleeve.

    Shopping Guide:
    1. Evan Healy Rosewater Tonic
    2. Byredo soap
    3. bkr Water Bottle
    4. White Linen Shirt
    5. Carefree ActiFresh Pantiliners

    What we have here seems to be a mashup of harem pants, high-waisted bell-bottoms and hotpants. A triple threat, really.

    She's also sort of rocking that two-piece trend everyone is wild about too. Well played, Kristen (maybe?). So would you or wouldn't you? Let's break it down piece by piece.

    The harem pant factor

    Pro: The slouchy, drop-crotch aspect of these pants reminds me of the gaucho pants we used to wear in the early 2000s, but only in that they are easy and breezy and really comfortable. Dress 'em up with a fitted blazer and a heel or dress 'em down with a tank and simple sandals.

    Con: Your boyfriend may not want to touch you for a week.

    The hotpants factor

    Pro: Hotpants (or, booty shorts) are only for the very, very brave (or booty-blessed). But these slightly-sheer pants Kristen rocks feature a nice body-hugging boyshort without going into R-rated outfit land.

    Con: You have to admit that your pants are part booty short.

    The bell-bottom factor

    Pro: The high-waisted denim look made popular in the '70s is back in a big way and it really enhances your curves and sexes up the jean look; all of which are happening in these mashup pants.

    Con: The beauty of the bell-bottom is that it elongates your legs. Since this bell-bottom factor gets slashed at the ankle by the harem look, we miss that benefit. It's certainly not gonna do most of us any favors.

    So… love it or hate it?

    Mouret, a celeb fave, has collaborated with Banana Republic on a capsule collection that highlights his understanding of fit and the female form. We love a designer collaboration as much as the next fashion-obsessed gal, but we're particularly excited to devour this one when it hits stores this August.

    Featuring nearly 30 pieces of apparel and accessories (think dresses, belts and more), the Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Collection was crafted using the store's signature Sloan fabric, a rich bi-stretch fabric that helps contour your body for the perfect fit. It was a natural choice for the designer, who's known for his impeccable draping and structural skills.

    The collection ranges in price from $50-$165 and you can check it out this August exclusively at select Banana Republic retail locations worldwide and online. To hold you over until then, we've got your first look at a few of our fave pieces from the collection.

    Sloan Colorblock Sheath Dress in Black/White ($140)

    Rolant Mouret for Banana Republic:

    Classic but oh so modern. We could see Jennifer Lawrence rocking this colorblock sheath for sure.

    Sloan One-Shoulder Colorblock Dress in Multi ($140) ; Perforated Belt in White ($50)

    Rolant Mouret for Banana Republic:

    Black, blue and pink: three of our go-to colors all in one dress. Can we pre-order this one, please?

    Cropped Short-Sleeve Poplin Top in White ($70) ; Sloan High-Waisted Legging in Black ($90)

    Rolant Mouret for Banana Republic:

    Now this is how we'd like to dress for work. Polished, sleek minimalism at its finest.

    3/4 Sleeve Colorblock Sweater in Blue/Black ($80) ; Sloan Leopard Panel Pencil Skirt in Blue/Black ($90)

    Rolant Mouret for Banana Republic:

    Blue leopard is the perfect way to infuse some attitude into your boring 9-5 style.

  • 07/24/14--11:30: The smartest beach bag ever
  • You can be the most meticulous perfectionist when it comes to adding and removing items, you can shake out that towel and not even put it back in the bag at day's end, but because sand is a wicked beast, it will find its way into your bag, and then your car and then your house (and your bed).

    Is it the cost of a sunny day at the beach? Penance for summer fun? No one can be sure, but this cosmic trade-off is finally a thing of the past thanks to a new tote bag called Shake.

    Just watch the video and be amazed for a second that you didn't think of this:

    Shakes bag

    Shakes bag

    Yes, it has a mesh bottom.

    Yes, it is adorable and has a pop of color and is exactly what you'd want in a beach tote anyway.

    Yes, it is affordable ($39).

    Yes, you should be abandoning this article and buying one right now.

    Shake bags are magical, in that they have a reversible flap that is pinned to either side, which lets you hide or reveal the mesh netting whenever you need to: items in, sand out. When you feel like too much sand has crept in, you just flip the flap and shake your Shake until all the sand is out.

    Genius, eh?

    Oh and also, it's made of a coated canvas that repels water. So congratulations, Happy Summer; now you have 99 problems but a beach ain't one.

    Ashley Greene recently rocked the most perfect beachy 'do and we've been dying to know how to recreate it ever since. Luckily, we tracked down her mane man, celebrity stylist Richard Collins, and got him to dish on his inspiration for the 'do: “The look I create is always inspired by the dress,” Collins said. “With Ashley’s chic, geometric white dress, I wanted her hair to be a bit edgier with lots of movement and texture, while also playing off of the fun atmosphere of the music awards.”

    Get the look

    1. Start by misting dry hair with Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection Spray to protect your locks from heat styling and to keep your style soft and shiny.
    2. Taking a 2-inch section of hair, twist it. Wrap this twisted section around the barrel of a 1.5-inch curling iron and leave out the ends to give your look a bit of edge.
    3. Going section by section, twist and curl the whole head. Make sure you keep some pieces straighter, especially around your hairline, to create a tousled look.
    4. Spritz each section at the root with Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo after curling. This will give your locks a nice boost of body and texture.
    5. Complete your look with Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer to keep those sexy waves in place, but leave them nice and touchable.

    Mostly I just focus on my go-to beauty essentials so I can breeze out the door in 20 minutes or less. I'm pretty casual with my look, but that doesn't mean I don't have a set routine. I'm always such a fan of those "make-up bag dumps" that other bloggers do (I'm such a voyeur), so today I wanted to share one of my own.

    Because I recently moved and changed climates completely, I had to revamp my entire morning ritual. Let's just say my skin was less than thrilled about the change in climate. It was a trial-and-error process, but I'm really pleased with the results now that I've solidified my routine.

    I start with a pore-normalizing cleanser from Paula's Choice, then once my skin is dry, I follow with a primer and tinted moisturizer.

    After that, I add a touch of bronzer because I'm pale, and some cheek stain for a hint of color. I'm all about the natural look that stains give, so I also use a lip stain.

    As for my skin, I smooth on vitamin C body oil. I only use a few drops, keeping my skin moisturized and fresh all day. Another great secret is using Carefree Acti-Fresh Pantiliners; they offer a fresh feeling all day long. Then, last, a spritz of my favorite perfume and I'm out the door. This simple beauty routine keeps me fresh and lovely throughout the day.

    Selena Gomez

    The Ischia Global Film & Music Festival has turned out to be quite the style parade for Selena Gomez. The singer and actress has been spotted in an array of jaw-dropping, sexy outfits, and we definitely found a fave from the bunch.

    Selena stepped out in this awe-inspiring embellished LBD this week and definitely made us look twice. An up-to-there slit, revealing back and a plunging neckline bring loads of sex appeal, but the gorgeous embellishment and waist detail help make this look more classy than trashy. Selena wisely selected plain black pumps and a no-fuss updo to keep all the attention on her incredible gown. Oh and did we mention her skin was absolutely glowing? Yeah, that's the way to get some attention on the red carpet.

    The final verdict? Selena has evolved into quite the fashionable young woman and has come such a long way since her Disney days. We can't wait to continue to watch her style change.

    Sarah Hyland

    To attend the Celebration of Dance Gala, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland got all dolled up in a sexy, summery LWD. Lest you think she selected a boring casual style, Sarah actually blew us away with an embellished style.

    Strapless gowns are tricky fashion territory; they can look slutty on super tall gals but petite gals like Sarah can look more proportional in them. Paired with cute gray pumps, Sarah's detailed strapless white dress elongated her petite frame and helped show off her curves in a classy way. Side embellishments, a metallic clutch and minimal jewelry helped keep the white look clean and totally streamlined.

    The final verdict? Check out Sarah's super shiny locks and pretty pink pout. This, folks, is the perfect beauty look to accompany a strapless embellished dress. Why? Because it's sophisticated without being pretentious.

    Here's a tip, free of charge: It's hard to make friends while openly discussing pubic hair. I should know, since I recently polled several acquaintances about their grooming habits. Interpersonal discomfort aside, I tend to think the subject is fascinating because it can give us a peek at what society thinks about women, sexuality and the female body.

    What's society saying these days?

    The results are in, and it appears as though society is returning to a more natural ladyscaping aesthetic. We have collectively pushed back against Barbie doll expectations and the toll of easily-accessible pornography that glorifies a completely bare look. Indeed, all of the women I spoke with told me that they have abandoned the days of extreme waxing and shaving in order to embrace their grown-up womanhood.

    "I keep the majority of my pubic hair for aesthetic reasons," says Abigail Ekue. "I used to go completely bald, but after a while it didn't look normal to me."

    Businesswoman Sarah G. echoes the sentiment. "From the age of 15, I thought I had to shape my pubic hair," she says. "About five years ago, though, I stopped all that and went for a full bush. I love the look of my body this way — it's more balanced."

    These snippets are borne out by the numbers, as well. A recent UK survey revealed that 51 percent of women don't groom their pubic hair at all, and 62 percent state that their partners prefer the natural look, anyway. Of those 49 percent of women who groom, 33 percent shave their own pubic hair, 27 percent rely on the expertise of a waxing professional and 15 percent use hair removal creams.

    This is a far cry from what I was thinking in my early 20s. I was pretty certain that I was the only woman who didn't go to the salon every week for a Brazilian.

    A look back at yesteryear

    It wasn't always this way, though. The decade that ended in 2011 saw Americans spend $2.1 billion on hair removal in the form of waxing, shaving, tweezing and beyond. Women went for the triangle, upside-down triangle, landing strip and completely bare. Women almost never went for the full bush.

    For good or bad, waxing salons have seen a decrease in revenue in the last few years. So what changed? It's hard to say, but it doesn't hurt that celebrities have hopped back onto the bushy wagon. Gwyneth Paltrow recently stated that she "works a 70s vibe," and photographers snapped Lady Gaga with a full bush not too long ago.

    So, ladies, the surveys and the celebrities have spoken: It's OK to go natural.

    5 Ways to wear metallic eyeliner

    The triangle

    The Triangle

    Step 1:

    The Triangle Step 1: Draw along lash line

    Take a metallic eyeliner pencil (creamy pencils glide on easiest); starting at the outer corner of your eye, draw a line along your lash line and stop halfway across.

    Step 2:

    The Triangle Step 2: Draw second line

    Draw a second line along your bottom lash line and stop halfway across (mimicking what you did on the top).

    Step 3:

    The Triangle: Close up

    The eyeliner shape should look like a sideways triangle. This shape is unique and fun, but doesn't scream eyeliner!



    Step 1:

    Undereye Step 1: Draw straight line across your lower lash

    Draw a straight line across your lower lash line only (starting at the outer corner going inward works best).

    Step 2:

    Undereye Step 1: Go over twice for intense color

    Go over the line twice for more intense color.

    Step 3:

    Undereye: finished



    Step 1:

    Crease Step 1: Draw thick line along the crease

    Starting at the outer corner of your eye, draw a thick line along the crease of your eyelid with the eyeliner. (Tip: use a waterproof eyeliner. It's helpful to apply an eyeshadow primer first to prevent natural eye oils from smearing the eyeliner throughout the day.) The shape of this line should be slightly curved, like a half moon.

    Step 2: 

    Crease Step 2: Repeat on the other eye

    Repeat this line on the other eye. Go back over for more intense color.

    Step 3:

    Crease Step 3: Finished

    This look is an unexpected fun pop, especially when you look down.

    Top lid

    Top Lid

    Step 1.

    Top Lid Step1: Apply a straight line to top lid only

    Make a thick straight line along your top lashes only. Make the line thick enough so the eyeliner is visible when your eye is open.This application lets you rock the trend in a classy way.

    Step 2:

    Top Lid Step 2: Apply to other eye

    Repeat this line on the other eye.

    Step 3:

    Top Lid Step 3: Finished


    Inner rims

    Inner Rims

    Step 1:

    Inner rim Step 1:apply to inner rim of your bottom lashline

    Take your metallic eyeliner and line only the inner rim of your bottom lashline (you may need to go over two times to make the liner pop).

    Step 2:

    Inner rim Step 2: apply to other eye

    Repeat this motion on the top inner rim of your lashline. (Tip: it's easiest if you tip your head back and gently pull the eyelid up, while looking into a mirror.)

    Step 3:

    Inner rim Step 3: Finished

    You can wear this liner look alone or combine with any eyeshadow. Wearing metallic eyeliner only on your inner rims gives your eyes a subtle but sassy pop.

    How to style the look

    Summer style is supposed to be comfortable and simple, so don't try too hard. A pretty sundress is always a statement maker, and a soft beauty look and minimal accessories can add that touch of detail you need to easily take this look from day to night.

    I pretty much start off every single day the same exact way, even if I am on vacation. That means that I pack all of the products I need regardless of the length of my stay away. And yes, I usually always have to check a bag.

    Wake up with a splash

    My routine ensures that I feel fresh all day long. It all starts off with a morning splash. A rinse with cold water to remove any excess oil that built up overnight. I don't use soap in the morning, believe it or not. I do the majority of cleansing at night right before I get into bed. In the morning, it's more about reviving my skin. A few splashes at the sink is good enough to awaken my cells.

    Cleanse and tone

    If I am feeling particularly oily, I will then reach for some toner. Toner is something that not many people use these days. It's almost like a lost art. Most products have combined multiple benefits into one and I think women feel that toner must be included in one of their go-to bottles. But I like using one specifically made for sensitive skin and I don’t mind the extra step, truly.

    Listen to your skin

    Depending on what time of year it is determines my next move. Do I reach for a serum or do I reach for a daily moisturizer? Is my skin breaking out? Does it need a little extra TLC? I constantly change this step in my routine to help combat whatever issues I might have going on around my T-zone.

    Hair care

    To freshen up my locks, I just spray a little dry shampoo around the roots. It's amazing what a little spritz of that product can do. If my ends are looking a bit frizzy, I reach for some taming cream and lightly apply where needed.

    Feeling and staying fresh throughout your day is completely attainable and easy to do. With a few simple steps, I can take care of every issue my body has all while ensuring I won’t have to worry about anything for the remainder of the day.

    What steps do you have as part of your morning routine to help you stay fresh all day long?

    Designers used to dream of what folks in the year 2000 would wear. They would be deeply disappointed to see that none of us are rocking skin-tight metallic-colored unitards paired with fishbowl-style space helmets covering our heads. They would also probably be sad that flying cars are not a thing. I know I am.

    Luckily for us, some plucky (read: possibly disturbed) designers are doing something that could shake up the fashion world. I've got two words for you: Scented. Jeans. There's more than one company out there trying to make stinky denim a good thing.

    First off we have Salsa, a brand out of Portugal. Their Colette Fragrance Jeans are a skinny cut that comes in several fruit-inspired, washed-out white colors. Each pair has a distinctly fruity scent, and is meant to keep that aroma for 20 washes. Why? That is anyone's guess. I feel hungry and nauseated even considering this idea.

    But don't worry, if it appeals to you, the guy in your life doesn't have to feel left out. Naked + Famous has Scratch-n-Sniff Denim available for the menfolk. They look just like a pair of 401s, or any other classic cut of jean. But they smell like a raspberry soda. Now you and your loved one can both stink of fruits together — just don't wash your jeans at the same time unless you're trying to create some sort of fruit cocktail.

    While I appreciate the ingenuity these companies are bringing to their lines, doesn't this seem a bit (pardon the pun) fruitless? Who is going to pay slightly more to have jeans that are particularly pungent? Usually that's something we try to avoid with soap, water, and you know, general hygiene.

    Also, the stank that makes these jeans more expensive doesn't last forever. Think of the science wasted on these pants. I want my haute couture space helmet. Heck, I'd settle for truly smudge-proof glasses, shirts that deflect rain and pants that come with a personal heating or air conditioning unit.

    The calendar (like most calendars) is put out once a year and the 12 spots are highly coveted by models and actresses. Part of the appeal is that there are so few made and distribution is limited to a small number of important clients and celebrity VIPs. But the real draw is because the artistic portraits are done by the best photographers and posed by some of the biggest names in the biz.

    A look at previous years reads like a who's-who of Hollywood. Previous beauties-of-the-month have included Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Milla Jovovich, Doutzen Kroes, Heidi Klum, Sophia Loren, Penélope Cruz, Brittany Murphy, Amy Smart, Julia Stiles, Karolina Kurkova, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. But a new name is being added to the list this year and it has everyone buzzing: Candice Huffine will be the first plus-sized model to be featured in the 50+ years the calendar has been made.

    "My presence on this set — the most glamorous in the world — is a sign that things are really changing," she told Vogue.

    And this is some good change happening. With the average U.S. woman being a size 14 (the size at which plus sizes start), approximately 70 percent of the population fits the definition. Yet plus-sized women have been woefully underrepresented both in stores and in fashion spreads. Casting the gorgeous Candice, who has also been featured on the cover of Italian Vogue, Moda and other magazines shows the industry that yes, you can be plus-sized and fashion-forward. (It should be noted that a "plus-size model" is often not the same as a plus-size normal woman. Candice is a U.S. size 12.)

    You can also, apparently, be into fetish as the theme for the 2015 calendar seems to be bondage with lots of black leather, skin and bustiers. (12 shades of gray?) Yet a criticism often leveled at fashion spreads featuring plus-sized women is that they are often posed nude or nearly nude, as if modelling lingerie is the only role they can "fit into." And it seems this shoot will be no different.

    "Seeing a wider variety of body types in fashion is good, obviously, but associating larger women with sexual availability is problematic (and a total cop-out on the part of the stylist)," writes fellow model Jenna Sauers of a previous magazine cover that featured Candice.

    "It seems like we're getting to a place where straight-size models are hired to wear clothes and plus-size models are hired to take them off," noted Dodai Stewart on Jezebel.

    And yet despite how frustrating fashion can be, at least we are now talking about plus-size women in fashion, which feels like a win. Candice has definitely earned this, and it's refreshing to see someone who represents a different standard of beauty. More, please!

    According to Giuliana Rancic, it was do or "dye": "I'm a big fan of 'go big or go home,' so I don't wanna do like wishy-washy. If I'm gonna do blond, I wanna do blond," plus she didn’t even tell her husband Bill about her decision until afterwards.

    And when she updated her Twitter profile pic, everyone went nuts. Because, well, we have nothing better to do I guess?
