Sportswear Brand Jack Tar Togs Relaunched

SARASOTA – The brand Jack Tar Togs, which helped to popularize the sailor suit for American youths and women for most of the 20th century, has returned.

The brand, which began in Baltimore, was all abo...

Meet The Crystal-Loving L.A. Nail Artist Behind Julia Roberts' Mystical Manis

Celebrities are often the target of online trolls, but thanks to social media, some of Hollywood's most familiar faces have a chance to respond to their haters — and we all get to watch it play out. Case in point: When Julia Roberts was recently criticized over her "ugly black nail polish" the Homecoming actress clapped back like a pro. "It is in a fact a navy nail polish with garnets [ sic] crystals as a grounding accent," she replied. "In case you would like to edit your comment from 'ugly bl...

How To Know Which Amazon Alexa-Enabled Device Is Right For You

Siri might have come first, but since Amazon introduced Alexa on the first Echo device in November 2014, the virtual assistant has taken over. Even after a strange laughing incident and privacy concerns, Alexa still reigns supreme, ready to offer up the day's weather forecast or tell a joke on command.As Alexa's popularity increases, Amazon has also expanded the number of devices it is available on, from the original Echo to the newer Echo Show and Echo Look. With Cyber Monday fast approaching...

10 Party-Ready Essentials To Get You Through The Holidays

There really is just so much to love about the holiday season. Cozy nights with festive cocktails, gift buying for our BFFs, and all those parties (think everything from fancy black-tie galas to chill group hangs) that give us an excuse to play dress-up. Which, if we're being real, never gets old.You know the drill: meeting up with your girlfriends hours beforehand, swapping beauty tips around the one full-length mirror, and trying on every pair of shoes you own until you find the perfect match...

This Dessert-Inspired Body-Care Line Doubles Down on Salted Caramel

The early 2000s were a simpler time, when we watched Jessica Simpson figure out if tuna was chicken or fish. In addition to her Newlyweds shenanigans alongside Nick Lachey, the stunning blonde had a cosmetics line at Sephora called Dessert Beauty. Each scent was sugary, sweet, and over the top, and we've been grieving the loss of the brand until now. Body-care brand Being by Sanctuary Spa has spunky, fun packaging and the same sugary-sweet scents Simpson's line was famous for. One product in pa...

When Will Midterm Election Results Come In? Here's When Polls Close

Tuesday marks the end of perhaps the most consequential midterm election in recent history. To summarize: A record number of women are running for office, plenty of candidates could make history, people participated in early voting at a rate that outpaced previous midterm elections, and Democrats have a chance at flipping the U.S. House of Representatives. It's, well, a lot.That means that the entire nation will be watching Tuesday night to figure out the results. But since all good things come...

Here Are All The Discounts For Your Voting Selfie On Election Day

If you've been on Instagram or Twitter in the last week, you've probably noticed the influx of brands and retailers offering deals on their social media channels as reward for voting in tomorrow's midterm election.These posts tend to go something like this: "Send a voting selfie — but not in the voting booth, as this is illegal — and DM it to us for a 40% discount on our [insert product name here]." This stipulation is important: While laws vary by state, taking a selfie with your ballot is a c...

9 Beauty Ornaments For Your Most Gorgeous Christmas Ever

Christmas ornaments already have their charms. They're shiny, sparkly, and can carry a ton of sentimental value (see the fingerpainted ornament that I made in kindergarten that my father refuses to throw away). Add a beauty product inside, and it crosses the line from charming to straight-up impressive, because who wouldn't be excited to decorate their tree with long-lasting lipsticks or the mini version of the Fenty Beauty product they included on their list to Santa? Below are the prettiest be...

Best Affordable Eco-Friendly Gifts for Your Greenest Friends

When you have friends that come from all different walks of life, gift-buying and gift-giving can be challenging. Fun! But challenging. Things get even more complicated when you have friends who are conscious of their consumption, or who have strong ethical views about consumerism. What is the holiday season if not a consumerist’s playground? But fear not – you can still find gifts of appreciation for your greenest, crunchiest, most Earth-friendly friends, and you can do it on a budget! Here we ...

7 Easy Ways To Get Smarter With Your Daily Expenses

When thinking about our spending habits, we tend to only fixate on the major costs (rent, clothing, trips, student debt). But our smaller daily expenses can impact our budget just as much as those big-ticket necessities. Between morning coffee runs (and afternoon coffee runs, and late-afternoon coffee runs...), pricy chopped salads, casual trips to the drugstore that always end with a receipt as tall as we are, and post-happy-hour cabs home, our day-to-day spending can add up way quicker than w...

6 Confetti-Packed Beauty Products That Are So Much Better Than Snow Globes

Between Halloween falling on a Wednesday (and therefore requiring two party-packed weekends) and the rightful pressures of tomorrow's midterm elections, this fall has been more stressful than monitoring the slow demise of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's relationship. But now that we're nearly a full week into November, it's almost time to relish what's left of the year and redirect your attention to things that won't stress you the fuck out. (Pending tomorrow's outcomes, of course.)Yes, we're...

Review: Volta

I’m not the type to chase adventure. Some people hop on roller coasters, travel to far-off lands, skydive out of planes… but I don’t pine for that rush of adrenaline. I’m more of a homebody, thriving most on routine and safety. My idea of an exciting time? Masturbating with a bizarre new sex toy to determine, once and for all, how its weird shape feels against my genitals. I first saw the Fun Factory Volta in a brief, fleeting Instagram video my friend sent me to ridicule. “It looks like a vib...

Uranus Might Get In Your Head This Week — Here's How To Prepare

For such a distant planet, Uranus sure has given us earthlings plenty to talk about this year. Back in May, the planet of revolution and change moved into Taurus after spending about seven years in the previous sign on the Wheel of the Zodiac, Aries. As astrologer Kimberly Peta Dewhirst told Refinery29 at the time, this shift kicked off a period of gradual change in the spheres of life that Taurus rules. Namely, Dewhirst predicted that the next seven years would see an uptick in e-commerce, sus...

11 Political TV Shows That Thankfully Aren't Real

Intrigue! Pantsuits! Devilry behind closed doors! The occasional dose of Latin philosophizing! Politics as TV fodder is a tale as old as the late-20th century. Beginning in the '30s with Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Hollywood enjoyed skewering that powerful force on the other side of the country. The stories were all vaguely similar: An idealistic fellow (often a man) would venture to Washington, D.C., only to find himself corrupted by the promise of sweet, sweet power. There was All the King'...

Ikea Is Having A Black Friday Sale Two Weeks Early

Traditionally, Black Friday sales occur on, it almost goes without saying, Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. However, that's only about a month before Christmas and just a little over a week before the start of Hanukkah this year. For many of us, that's simply not nearly enough time to prepare for holiday gift giving and party hosting. In order to give customers a head start on holiday planning while still offering epic deals, Ikea is having a Black Friday-esque sale this weekend, two w...
