Take a look at these personalized gifts for that special someone, favorite sibling or your parents. [12 Personalized Gifts You Can’t Go Wrong With, Fashionista.com]
  1. Besides bringing about the constant urge to drink hot chocolate, winter also brings dry skin and chapped lips for days. If you’re sick of constantly having to reapply moisturizer and chapstick, check out this tutorial that has some good tips for keeping your skin less dry.

  1. Since it’s universally known that college students are broke, buying gifts for friends and family can be tricky. Here are some beauty gifts that are $20 or less that you might actually be able to afford.

  1. If you’re a lady going shopping, it’s probably normal for you to think, “Oh, I should only be shopping in the women’s department because, after all, I’m a lady.” WRONG.

  1. Let the slew of holiday parties begin, because ugly (and by ugly, I mean awesome) Christmas sweaters and sequined dresses need their time to shine. What better way to let them than with sugar cookies and eggnog? These holiday outfits are definitely way out of my budget, but at the very least, they are inspiring. So take a look at them, and maybe you’ll garner some new inspiration for your holiday attire this season. [10 Party Pieces, Refinery29]
  1. I’m a sucker for horoscopes. It’s actually the first thing I check in the morning, even before the weather. If you’re a believer, you should read these horoscopes because they are truly funny. [Ho-Ho-Horoscopes, Manrepeller.com]
  1. Art, design and parties all converged in Miami this weekend at Art Basel. With a combo like that, you can only imagine that the street style was pretty cool.

  1. If you didn’t know, Pantone announced their color of 2015: marsala! But not chicken marsala. It’s more like a brownish-red color that’s actually quite pretty. So find out how to incorporate the famous color into your wardrobe right now. [25 Ways to Wear the Official Color of 2015 Right Now, Luckymag.com]
