Last we checked, rules, even of the style variety, were made to be broken.

'The Beginning of all Beauty Is Knowing and Liking Oneself'

Think positively. It's something we've been told our whole lives -- by our parents, our grade school teachers, our significant others and even bumper stickers. Call it the Oprah Effect, but there's no denying that the idea of positivity has a strong hold on our culture. Proponents of positive thinking would have you believe that changing your outlook can cure cancer or help your lotto chances.   read more

8 Grown-Up Charms to Add Flair to Your Handbag

Remember when you were in grade school and your backpack had so many colorful keychains hanging off the zipper that you were pretty sure they weighed more than your books? I miss those days. Apparently, so did the creative teams at Fendi, MCM and several other high-end bag designers, because keychains are back. OK, we call them "bag charms" now, and you're more likely to see them on an expensive satchel than a JanSport backback. Call 'em what you want -- we're on board. From luxury charms resembling our favorite designer to colorful pom-pom-adorned bag charms, these trinkets make us want to start a new collection. Here's why you should, too.   read more

Charlotte Tilbury has been a prominent figure in the beauty world for decades, and you no longer have to be a Hollywood A-lister to get her professional makeup secrets. We've been eagerly anticipating the launch of Tilbury's makeup line in the U.S. since we first got a peek at the rose gold packaging (this is serious vanity quality makeup here).

See every piece here before you rush out to purchase the collection come September.

How Pilates Changed My Body

After having a baby, I wanted to get back in shape. (Shout-out to all the new moms out there -- I know it's not easy.) I decided to try Pilates because it's all about core strength, I can do it at home and it doesn't require much sweating. (Sweating means showering, which is not at the top of the New Mom Priority List.)   read more

Bright Color in Fall: It's a 'Do'

With fall just around the corner, we're programmed to pack up our short shorts, sandals and summer brights and trade them in for sweaters, boots and considerably more subdued colors like beige, navy, gray and black. But the fall collections of top designers show it's still cool to wear bright pops of color in fall. Instead of stowing your pinks, teals and yellows for next year, mix them with fall's traditional cool-down colors to create a runway-ready look that's completely on-trend. Keep these summer staples in your wardrobe rotation as the temperature cools down.   read more
