She is the Queen of Meereen and Empress of killer braids — bottom line, no one conquers the hair game quite like Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). In honor of the final season, I decided to create a Khaleesi inspired ‘do that's perfect for lounging around the castle or the beach. The Mother of Dragons' hair is always on-point, and with these two-tiered French braids, you'll be rockin' her go-to style for slayage!
I am officially all about no-makeup makeup. It's won me over thanks to its quick routine and has been my go-to look all summer. I've found that cream-based products are key, because they melt right into your skin, giving you a completely natural vibe you just can't achieve with powders. The Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30), which is part of the Peaches and Cream Collection, is the best of both worlds.
When it comes to finding the right look for your bridal party, there are so many factors to consider.

Enter Etsy, your one-stop shop for all things uniquely bohemian.
Ladies First highlights women and girls who are making the world better for the rest of us. Public education in America has many fundamental inequalities, many of which were highlighted when Betsy DeVos became the US Secretary of Education in February. Without a Net: The Digital Divide In America is a new documentary from Oscar-nominated director Rory Kennedy that looks at one of the major disparities in American schools — internet and technology access — and with it, the importance for the coun
Anna Faris is offering up relationship advice and Taylor Swift is making good on her promise in this morning's top news stories. Check out those and more below in the Thursday Morning Buzz. 1. Anna Faris's relationship advice following her split from Chris Pratt is heartbreaking — but also empowering.
It's hard to believe that this weekend marks the 16th anniversary of the first Princess Diaries. While plenty has changed over the years — like the fact that the film's star, Anne Hathaway, is now a mother and Oscar-winner, and beloved director Garry Marshall has passed away — we're as eager as ever to catch up with Princess Mia and her (fictional) kingdom of Genovia.
If you feel like you haven't spotted an engagement announcement on Facebook or Instagram in a minute, that's not just your imagination. The winter holidays and the summer season are typically when jewelers are dishing out diamond rings left and right. But so far this year, sales have been struggling.
Prince George may be busy at school these days, but when he's at home with his mom, dad, and sister, the young royal likes to relax in front of the TV (although his parents try to limit his screen time). And one of his very favorite things to pop on is a Disney classic that has some interesting parallels to his own life.
Between their Insta-perfect #OOTDs and omg-inducing red carpet ensembles, celebs serve up an endless supply of style inspiration on the regular. The designer duds and impeccably put-together looks are nothing short of #goals, but the glitz and glamour factor can make them feel a little out of reach for the average working girl (because #adulting).
Since last fall, Olivia Palermo has been partnering with Banana Republic as the style ambassador, editing down her favorite picks from the store for shoppers like you. Well, it was only a matter of time before the two joined forces giving us just a bit more OP. Enter: Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo — a 70-piece capsule collection, which ranges from $48 for accessories to $998 for leather outerwear.
Memorial Day tends to conjure images of heavenly BBQs with tricked-out grilling gadgets and (weather permitting — oh please, oh please, oh please!) pool party fun.

Nearly every major brand you love is likely offering some kind of discount this weekend, giving us every excuse in the book to shop to our heart's content for the fierce new summer wardrobe of our dreams.
Anytime a high-end fashion designer decides to collab with a brand we can actually afford, insanity usually ensues (read these six stories from the H&M x Balmain days for proof). Our go-to lingerie brand, Victoria's Secret, has just announced its OWN wallet-friendly collection with the design house helmed by Olivier Rousteing.
No one needs to twist anyone's arm to get them to eat more cake, amiright? But if you're looking for a dessert that's also part spectacle, a girl's gotta aim high. From DIY watercolor cakes to rustic naked cakes to cute peekaboo cakes, there are so many amazing designs out there. Enter the very latest trend: drip wedding cakes.
There are few things in life that make us feel more nostalgic than camping. The smell of campfire, sleeping under the stars, and time spent distraction free with family and friends? Sign us up! One of the best parts of slower camp mornings, days, and nights is getting to cook up some seriously tasty eats.
Canada is known for many things. Their hunky Prime Minister, Drake, Celiné Dion, and of course, its very unique drunk food, poutine. This mix of fries, cheese, and gravy was invented in French-speaking Quebec, but has since become a national dish. In honor of the country's national celebration of Canada Day on July 1, Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons is mixing the standby up a bit with plans to sell a — get this — poutine donut .
With the excitement of peach season being at its peak comes the realization that summer is coming to an end. There's only one thing to do in the face of this sad truth: EAT ALL THE PEACHES! First, treat yourself to the experience of sinking your teeth into a few ripe ones and letting the juice dribble down your chin.
Since taking office as Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos has been at the center of a few controversies. Most recently, it has been over her freezing of Obama-era regulations that limit for-profit schools. DeVos' recent announcement that she would be freezing regulations aimed at for-profit colleges prompted student advocacy groups to take action, and now, a group of attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia is suing the entire Department of Education.
If the avalanche of high profile sexual harassment and assault allegations unleashed by the Weinstein revelations and the #MeToo movement has taught us one thing, it's that things need to change — and it would seem that a societal shift is indeed taking place. But when the punishment for an alleged sexual harassment falls outside the parameters defined by the legal justice system — as it most often does — and is instead meted out in career loss, public shaming, and social ostracization, it's har
Stephen Colbert has been known to sometimes be a little over the top with his humor. While his run on The Late Show has been pretty tame, sometimes the comedian goes a little further than expected with his jokes. While it's no secret that Colbert (like some) is not a fan of the President, a joke he made earlier this week was not only unfunny; it was downright homophobic.
Disgraced comedian Louis C.K. will buy back the rights to his film I Love You, Daddy for $5 million, reports Deadline. Back in September, distribution company The Orchard purchased distribution rights to the film for $5 million after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Deadline reports C.
Hillary Clinton (and anyone who has raised a child) was right: It does indeed take a village to raise a child. If you don't have a supportive group at the ready to embrace, utilize, and to beg for last-minute babysitting, you know what you gotta do? Make your own village. It takes time, but the support and empathy you'll get from your new parent-based community is worth the effort.
It's almost Halloween, and you have two things on your mind. To start with, you're trying to Pinterest your way to a totally DIY costume for your kiddo. And then, there are the treats. Not the bulk candy that you buy in those pillowcase-sized bags (but those are nice too) — we're talking about Halloween desserts that you whip up in the kitchen.
Ah, nostalgia. It's that old friend who gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, taking you away from everyday adult life, like answering work emails, changing dirty diapers and doing tons of laundry (where does it all come from?). You can find it in old photos, an origami-esque folded note from your middle school BFF or a classic flick that reminds you of a very specific time and place.
Babies aren't cheap…but you already knew that. What with the shabby chic (and perfectly pricey) modern crib that you absolutely need, the mountain of onesies and all the other essentials you filled in from your baby registry, even outfitting your nursery on a budget has already used up part of your savings on the new kid.
Even on the nights you do everything right — go to bed early, turn your phone off, sleep on lavender-scented pillows — it's hard to make sure you're getting enough beauty sleep. And if you stayed up all night to hit a deadline (or the bottle), chances are the sleep deprivation is going to show. If you can't grab a power nap at work, try some of these tricks to give yourself an energy boost and fake a well-rested look.
To say it's been an interesting year for Apple would be a huge understatement. Not only did people freak out over the iPhone 7 losing the headphone jack, but now the new Macbooks are having battery problems too. So when it came time to write their annual "Best Of" lists for 2016 (including music, podcasts, movies and apps), the Apple editorial team definitely decided to play it low key.
Jessica Biel's face is everywhere lately for her return to TV in USA Network's much-anticipated thriller The Sinner.

When Lea Michele isn't filming her spooky show Scream Queens, she's escaping the Hollywood chaos in her own private sanctuary tucked away in West LA. The actress only recently bought the four-bedroom house, but she's already transformed it into the perfect retreat to recover and recharge.

Last year, Marian Call, an Alaskan singer-songwriter, asked people to list their #firstsevenjobs as inspiration for a new song she was working on. The hashtag quickly caught on — because everyone loves an origin story — and soon, everyone from celebs to CEOs were joining in on the fun. We learned Buzz Aldrin washed dishes, Lin-Manuel Miranda made slushees, Maria Shriver shucked oysters and Sheryl Sandberg babysat and got fired…twice.
We're all on the hunt for a girls' night out or first date idea that will seriously wow our gal pals or potential significant others, because honestly, dinner out and viewing parties of The Bachelor can get a little old.
