The Ideal Valentine's Day Date According to Tinder

Here's what you should be doing today according to strangers on a dating app

I am currently actively not dating, so until about 48 hours ago, I really didn't give a damn that Valentine's Day was knocking on my door, red balloons and last-minute drug store chocolates in hand. Staring V-Day in the eye, an idea came to me. Tinder, the app I have cyclically downloaded and, when my phone ran out of space, deleted for the past year, sparked something.

Does Purple Primer Actually Make Your Skin Glow?

Let's talk about the new Becca First Light Filter Face Primer

Does BECCA's purple primer work for all skin

Go ahead, ask me: "Do you want glowy skin?" Yes. Duh. Obviously. Yes. Always yes. If I could look as radiant as Beyoncé looked at the Grammy's last night all the time (not possible because no one is Beyoncé, but still) I would shout "hell yes" without stopping a beat to think. So, when I discovered that there was a strange purple primer that promised to give me that luminous glow, I was prepared to bathe in it.

Faux Fur, Real Life

I've been getting life advice from a vintage fur coat

Vintage Faux Fur & Denim

This vintage faux fur jacket has lived many lives before it found itself keeping me warm through the miserable New York winter. I imagine in one of those lives it belonged to a grand dame who had no objections to drinking before noon and smoking a cigarette with dinner.

A little ditty about how you can't predict the weather

Cute Pink and Black Outfit Idea

For example, the day I wore this lil' outfit situation, there was no warning of million mile per hour winds, but lo and behold, I was damn near blown away. All I wanted to do was be cute in an unnecessarily frilly skirt and pink moto jacket, but the misinformed weather person wouldn't let me be great. When speaking metaphorically though, you really can't predict the weather.

Velvet for the Holidays

Who What Wear x Target is all sorts of festive

Velvet Wrap Dress for the Holidays

Every year, like clockwork, the holidays bring with it a feeling of "oh-my-gosh-this year-is-almost-over-what-the-how-the-did-I-even-accomplish-anything" confusion. And even though I most certainly did accomplish a lot this year, that feeling is still there. On the less maddening side, this is my first holiday season back in New York, and though it as cold as an ice box in the middle of the Arctic, I am expecting it to be magical.

4 Things You Need To Make An Updo Work

It's time to stop hiding behind your hair

Natural Curly Hair Updo

I love having big, thick, face framing hair—hair so big you could hide in it. For a long time, I actually hid behind my hair, rarely ever putting it up into a ponytail or bun.  Thanks to confidence that comes with getting older, I've come out from behind my hair, but there's also a formula I have that's helped me embrace updos.
