Velvet has been super hot over the winter, and it's not stopping there. Enter: velvet swimsuits for your spring and summer pool days. Now, this isn't the silk or cotton velvet you're familiar with; it's a nylon and lycra stretch velvet that can move with you and quickly dries after getting wet. Have we captured your curiosity? Whether you're ready to dive in head first, or want to dip your toes into this luxurious trend, we've scoured the web to bring you the velvet swimsuits at every price point.

Alcohol lifts us high and crashes us down, usually by way of terrible side effects like temporary vertigo (aka “the spins”) and what I like to call selective memory (aka blackouts, brownouts, or “I did what last night?!”). Almost everyone who drinks has experienced at least one of the discomforting and embarrassing side effects of alcohol. But how do they happen in the first place?
Today, I'm talking new holiday makeup collections. I don’t know about you, but I’m always eager to see all the new holiday makeup this time of year as we get closer to Christmas and the New Year. It’s usually around this time the collections are unveiled, and it’s always a treat to see what festive goodies are coming our way! I’ve got a little preview of my favorite holiday makeup including coveted collections that have just been released.
When we want to dress up or make an outfit look a little nicer, a pair of sky-high heels is usually the first place we turn. But whether you're battling blisters, walking a ton, or just bored with your heels at the moment, there are times when a comfortable pair of flats is too good to pass up. Luckily, there are some amazingly fancy flats out there, so your outfits (and feet) don't have to suffer. Leave your pumps at home and slip on a pair of sophisticated pointy-toe flats, pretty leopard loafers, or chic ballet flats—we've got 20 perfect pairs for you to choose from!

Sun protection can sometimes seem like a hassle. First there’s like three types of sunscreen (face, lips, body) and then you have to reapply what seems like every five minutes. But sun protection that justifies a new accessory purchase and looks totally chic? That’s one we can get on board with. So we found 12 cute hats—from floppy hats to fedoras to baseball caps—that will not only protect your pretty face, they’ll make your outfit as well!
Leather has always been—and probably always will be—a key component of any winter wardrobe. But this season, it seems we’re getting an even heavier dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll. From revised motorcycle jackets and leather-trimmed tees to all manners of perforated and paneled, there’s something for everyone this fall.
Hot chocolate just might be the best part of winter. It's decadent and delicious, and it warms you up faster than a Snuggie straight out of the dryer. Who would turn down chocolate, arguably one of the best creations known to man, when it's melted down to a thick, rich liquid? What's more (yes, there's more!), hot chocolate accoutrements hardly end there--think cayenne pepper, pumpkin puree, and even Fluffernutter. If you're craving a steaming cup of cocoa this season, go beyond the usual mix of instant powder. There's a wide world of hot chocolate recipes like these just waiting to be tried, tasted, and treasured.

Winter means sledding, frost on windows, boozy hot chocolate by the fireplace, and conquering the black diamond slope you wouldn’t even look at last year.
