Glossier’s New Chicago Pop-Up Is Everything We’ve All Been Waiting For

A look inside the magic of Glossier and its new pop-up shop in Chicago’s West Loop.

Glossier coming to Chicago feels oddly like a visit from the Pope. The New York-based beauty brand is globally beloved, but there are only two permanent showrooms in the world today, and they’re located in—guess where—New York and LA. After months of teasing, Glossier opened its first brick and mortar pop up in the Midwest, and even though its only temporary, it still feels like we’ve won some kind of prize. Read More

2017 American Music Awards Best Dressed List

How to Cool Your Digital Motor

Being constantly engaged online is like munching from the party snack bowl. You can’t seem to stop and no one will put it away. Step away from the Cheez-its! They are dangerous and so is your constant online activity.

I sound like my mother, but let’s face it, she is always right in the end. Read More

2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards Best Dressed List

Your event recap in five sentences or less: The MTV Movie Awards underwent an exciting/progressive format change this year and will now honor both film and television with gender-free awards; Adam Devine sang his opening monologue to the tune of “Beauty and the Beast” (cleverly re-titled “Movies and TV”); Vin Deisel accepted the 2017 generation award on behalf of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise and paused to honor Paul Walker while we all started bawling; MTV’s “best fight” award sustained an unnecessary name change to “best fight against the system;” Emma Watson took home the award for best actor in a movie—the first genderless acting award in history.

TIME 100 Gala Best Dressed List

For 13 years TIME has penned an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world—the good, the bad and all those in between—and then invited them all to dinner. This year’s TIME 100 gala was held Tuesday, April 25, at Frederick P. Rose Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City. Each year the list becomes more colorful, and at times, disheartening—but TIME is not to blame. In real news, the truth is unbiased. See Time’s full list of the 100 most influential people in the world here and let me know what you think. But for now, forget that Putin, Trump and Kim Jong Un all made the list, and enjoy the following couture-clad influencers. Read More

Product review: The Silicone Beauty Blender

The original Beauty Blender is the number-one purchased tool at Sephora, and yet it has an ideal 90-day shelf life according to the company website. If you’re loyal to the Beauty Blender, that’s $80 of income each year FOR SPONGES. Let that sink in. It’s less wasteful than buying cosmetic sponge wedges in bulk at your local drug store, but no less costly. And let’s be real, there are more important things in life. Like puppies. Read More

Introducing ‘Girl Talk,’ the official newsletter

Newsletters have become synonymous with all things I detest—lackluster content, junk mail, spam, sales calls. They are the offspring of this fantastical idea that we should have all the news we care about delivered to us in one beautiful well-written email, a private piece of tailored content just for us.

Maybe in a perfect world that’s possible. Read More

God Save The 90’s

Upon the return of the choker earlier this year, one thing became abundantly clear—the 90’s had come full circle. Just when you thought some things would never be cool again, they start popping up in Vogue. Take mom jeans, bucket hats, or wearing chunky high heels over calf-high dress socks. But then, maybe we were too busy trying to dress for our given decade to notice that they were always cool. Granted, there are a few trends that we wish would just stay away, like manpris, terry cloth, bike shorts and butterfly clips on adult heads (never again). Inspired by the best looks of the decade and the style icons that made them timeless, this season we’re pairing our patched denim and nerdy graphic tees with our favorite fall staples. While you’re fishing the grunge out of your closet, make sure to call your mom and apologize for telling her that her mom jeans weren’t cool. Read More
