November’s Sneak Peek, A Grizzly Bear Playlist, Cynthia Rowley Beauty, and More

We know you don’t have oodles of time to browse through everything on the Birchbox blog and in the magazine each week. Here’s a short list of the top blog posts, articles, videos, and news that we don’t want you to miss.

1. November 2013 Sneak Peek: In case you haven’t heard yet, our theme this month is “More Good.” Watch our co-founders go through some of their favorites in the November box and don’t forget to let us know how you’re giving back in the comments.

2. The Ed Droste Playlist: This week, the crazy-talented Grizzly Bear frontman chatted with Birchbox about his favorite new tunes. Prepare to discover your new obsession(s).

3. How to Fake Looking Awake: We can take a hint! Our UK counterparts serve up a cheat sheet to looking like you caught a full eight hours (even if you were out dancing instead).

4. Cynthia Rowley x Birchbox: This week we launched Cynthia Rowley Beauty exclusively on our site. For a limited time, snag her debut collection complete with a no-fuss liquid eyeliner, a five-shade shadow palette, and a luxe case for carrying them both. Here, Rowley dishes on the making of her namesake line.

5. Bridesmaid’s Got Back!: The bridal pros at Lover.ly clue us in to the latest trend in wedding wear: backless bridesmaid dresses. Would you dare to have your friend’s go bare?

Backless Bridesmaid Dresses: Lover.ly

We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their best tips for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.

Bridesmaid’s got back! While wedding gowns with dramatic and elegant backs have been a major trend in 2013, after October’s Bridal Fashion Week we’re willing to bet that the backless trend will hit bridesmaid dresses in 2014. We love that it’s subtly sexy and more fashion forward than your traditional bridesmaid silhouette.

When it comes to getting a beautiful back for the big day, we recommend exfoliating with dirt. luxe salt scrub followed by a little Caudalie Divine Oil for seriously glowing skin.

Here, our favorite new ways to get the look.
