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.
Packing for the holidays always seems easy - until you're staring at your empty suitcase and wondering what prompted you to go anywhere in the first place. You know what's nice around the holidays? Your apartment. But it's too late now. So you need warm layers, something cute for the holiday party where your ex-boyfriend may be lurking behind the punch bowl, and plenty of room for presents. Once you’ve laid everything out, ditch half of it. Now, look at what’s left. Ditch half of that too. There. You’re now in the zip code of What You Might Actually Wear. Because you never need as much as you think you do. A few beloved basics plus fresh socks and underwear for each day you’re gone and you’re set. For Hannukah, Christmas, for that winter solstice sage-waving ritual your sister keeps threatening.
Unicorn hot chocolate is the majestic and magical drink that will cure your winter blues.

Out with the old, and in with the new. But wait—not so fast. We’re giving you clear-eyed, full-hearted permission to abandon some of the year’s more, erm, troubling fashion trends. Specifically, weird headgear, spiked boots, drop-crotch harem pants, and festival chic (AKA “the dirty hippie look”) can peacefully fade into oblivion like so many nameless trends of yesteryear that we no longer devote brainspace to. (A good rule of thumb: Ask yourself “WWMKOD?” or “What would Mary-Kate Olsen do?” If the answer is “Wear it out with her sketchy old-man boyfriend!” then toss it in the trash immediately. There are, however, a few trends that are worth holding onto…in 2013 and beyond.

Here are a few of our favorite fall fashion trends being rocked by tough girls and pointers for wearing them yourself.
