Operations Coordinator, Loren, has a thing for nails—and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related

America’s birthday is almost here and to celebrate, a few of the ladies on the Operations team at Birchbox HQ are sporting some particularly patriotic nail art. To help inspire your own Independence Day designs, take a look at the fabulous digits below and get ready for those fireworks!
Spring is supposedly in full bloom, which means it’s the perfect time to embrace tiny tweaks that result in jaw-droppingly awesome results. For some Birchbox staffers those changes might include a wardrobe refresh or a breakfast overhaul, but I always welcome a new season with a new hair color.
Inspired by Mad Men's Joan, I took the plunge and dyed my cool-toned brunette locks a warm red hue. To score the ginger-y shade, I trekked to Brooklyn’s High Horse Salon and handed my lame tresses over to hair stylist Allison.
Taylor Swift is, without a doubt, one of 2012’s leading ladies. Thanks to her best-selling album Red (1.2 million copies sold in one week, thankyouverymuch) and some love life ups and downs (here’s looking at you, young master Kennedy), the Nashville-based country pop star was never ever ever too far from the spotlight.
But beyond the career and romantic escapades, Tay Tay also established a signature look this year: bold red lips, eye-grazing fringe, and a much more sophisticated style—and we totally want to steal it for ourselves. Luckily, the beauties at JolieBox have deciphered how to score her style in just a few steps.
Here’s how to get Taylor’s look.
Happy 2013! Our staffers have a long list of new year’s resolutions. What are yours?
It can be a bit of a black hole trying to sort through all the anti-aging beauty products on the market. That’s why we look to the all-knowing Jonell Copeland, the editor of the Ageist Beauty, a blog that focuses on dishing out beauty advice to ladies aged 35-50. This week, she’s giving us all the deets on her holiday season musts!
A red lip is an easy way to add a bit of holiday flair, sophistication and fun to your look. It can be universally flattering, if you choose the right lipstick.
Here are four easy-to-follow tips on how to make a crimson pout work for you:

If there’s one celebrity I look forward to seeing strut the red carpet, it’s rising star Rita Ora. Her attitude is refreshingly irreverent, and so is her style. As a huge fan of crimson lipstick, I loved that Rita rocked bold red lips on Sunday night at the MTV European Music Awards. I often use red lipstick to brighten up my shadowy fall wardrobe, but Rita’s head-to-toe crimson look inspired me to double down on red.

Earlier this week, I was having discussion with co-workers about holiday makeup and my input was this: Come December, all I see is red and sparkly. As much as I love experimenting with other colors during the rest of the year, during the holiday season I crave the glamorous classics. Since Chanel always seems to know what a girl wants (how do they do it?), I knew they’d have a wow holiday lineup in store. The 11-product collection is everything I’ve been dreaming of, and more. Some of the highlights: a luminous red polish named Rouge Carat, a perfect candy-apple-hued lipstick called Famous, a gold liquid liner named Or, and gilded shimmer gloss called Sparkle D’Or. Creating a holiday wish list has never been so easy.
If you can’t wait for the Chanel shade, get a similar red hot color from Deborah Lippmann.
