The backpack is that ultimate summer vacay bag that can carry you from beachside to street side but can also deliver you straight into fall for all your back-to-school needs.
Top handle backpacks are exploding in a plethora of styles this season, from playful embroidered florals and metallics to the sleek mini-leather tote versions for your more sophisticated styling needs.

After making her debut in the blockbuster hit The Best Man, and shooting her way into our hearts after appearing in urban romance classic, Love & Basketball, this week’s beauty crush has been on Hollywood’s radar ever since. Award-winning actress Sanaa Lathan has racked up accolades with a résumé boasting everything from television to theater to film and even animation, showing her comedic side by voicing Donna Tubbs on The Cleveland Show. Though she’s a busy one, the 45 year old always allots time to get glammed up for the red carpet, always emitting a youthful effervescence about her.

Since Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered in 2007 (yes, you've been watching the show for an actual decade), Koko has back and forth between blonde and brunette hair. She's been blonde for awhile, so we've been on watch for her next switch up. Instead of going back to dark brown, the beauty star decided to stop right in the middle, giving life to a new word: bronde.
What does it take to join the Balmain Army? Turns out, it has very little to do with your clothes.
Last Sunday, Balmain's first-ever LA flagship opened its Melrose Place doors, and high-end shopaholics went absolutely nuts...for good reason. In celebration of this, sources sat down with the brand's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, to chat his famous muses, his love for the city and, of course, what it would take for us to join the ranks of his celeb besties (like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian) as part of the Balmain Army.
The Bachelorette's matched her bottoms to her top in this 2(X)IST sports bra and leggings set (originally $36 and $48, now $18 and $24) while out for a late-night workout in Dallas, her hometown.
Not only did Rachel get all matchy-matchy with her attire, but she also paired the look with complimenting purple sneakers (well played).
Has anyone ever looked better after a good ole sweat sesh? Debatable.
The problem: dirty makeup brushes. Be honest, how often do you clean your tools? Between the time it takes to wash and dry makeup brushes (at least half a day), most of us try to go as long as possible without having to clean them.
Longer, fuller lashes enhance your eyes as well as add a dash of drama to any good beauty look.
This is especially true when that cue comes in the form of new jewelry for you. ICYMI, adorning your limbs in dainty earth-inspired details is the more sophisticated way to wear your jewelry these days.
Rihanna continued her role as a global humanitarian, meeting France’s President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron in Paris on behalf of her Clara Lionel Foundation.
JLo! 48 has never looked better. With that glowing (poreless) skin, breathtaking bod, and luscious locks, JLo has reached unearthly aspirational results when it comes to maintaining youthful looks, so i went on a hunt to get the details to her age-defying beauty regimen. Here’s what JLo recommends for slaying it at 48 and beyond!
Nicole Scherzinger had some fun in the same in one of my favorite places in the world—Capri! For a dip in the pool, she sported a $266 Melissa Odabash White Zuma Mesh One-Piece:
Cardi B rocked the ‘Gram in a curve accenting Versace Spring 2017 Multicolor Paneled Jumpsuit, previously worn by Lady Gaga at Super Bowl LI in February.
While Lady Gaga enlivened the look with a statement Moschino leather football shaped handbag, black block heeled sandals paired with a long matching windbreaker, Cardi kept the styling simple, opting for a pair of Hanifa Zoila bronze sandals.

While gingham may feel like an antiquated pattern of yesteryear, it’s actually one of the most fashion-forward motifs this summer. To avoid looking dowdy or, even worse, like a picnic table in this old school pattern,stick to carefully cut, stylish silhouettes that give it a 2017 upgrade.
Here are my favorites:
When you're obsessed with your eyebrows, it's hard not to be tempted by a stray hair under your arch or between your brows. BUT, Anastasia Soare, the brains behind Anastasia Beverly Hills and beauty behind Kim Kardashian's next-level eyebrows, is saying hard pass to shaping your brows with this tool.
Not only are celebs wearing them on their days off, everyone else seems to be wearing them IRL, too. But how many times can you really wear the same white sneaker before it starts making every outfit feel basic?
But basic you are not, and thanks to the platform sneaker (a.k.a. your new everyday footwear), you never have to feel basic again. Yes, the lifted shoe has a slightly throwback vibe, but luckily the '90s are also having a moment.
You gotta love enterprising women who see an unmet demand in the market place and jump to supply!

There are some people that just love beauty products (*looks in the mirror). And, if there was a bulletin board for the beauty obsessed, you may find a sign that reads, "Attn: Drew Barrymore's Instagram is lit!" this week. It's true. The self-described "true blue beauty junkie" spent the entire week sharing her beauty favorites, and it was very revealing.
For red carpet regulars like Taraji P. Henson, skin care is everything. And, the 46-year-old star has clearly mastered her routines, appearing near-flawless on a consistent basis. Her go-to makeup looks are never overdone, monochromatic mostly, allowing her skin to speak for itself.
If you're already daring enough to go for a bright color, then you clearly want it to have a punch. Fuchsia, orange, hot pink, blue, purple—there are so many hues of lipstick, yet a perfect pout is less about the actual color and more about its luminosity. If you want to truly pop, like Winnie Harlow and Lineisy Montero, add one step to your lipstick routine.
The Power star hasn't shied away from showcasing her gym-toned physique on Instagram as of late, and why should see? La La's put the work in! E! News caught up with the stunning celeb as she fit in a workout with Kirk Myers, founder and CEO of New York City-based gym The Dogpound, where she opened up about transforming herself from the inside out.
Celebrities love showing off a little leg here and there, but the chicest way to approach that concept is to pull out that early ‘2000s era mini skirt. Yep, it’s back like it never left, but for the Summer of 2017 it’s getting edgier by the day.
Behold a few fabulous examples, as modeled by some of our favorite ‘it’ girls:

One of my favorite hotels around the world is the Four Seasons. They have a beautiful logo that reflects the conventional winter, spring, summer, and fall seasons in a simple, symbolic manner. I remember relaxing in my room on one occasion, reflecting on just how far both my husband I have come. It had been quite a long time in the making but it seemed that finally, the winds of joy, peace, and prosperity were blowing in our direction.
