We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.
In addition to all things nebula-inspired, metallics always make my heart skip a beat. I rocked the look above this past New Year’s Eve and kept the gilded theme going with bold treasures by LAS Jewelry, VeraMeat and TOMTOM. (I don’t have the exact shade name, sadly, but it’s by Color Club and I received it in a Birchbox a few months back.) Besides making an instant statement, what’s rad about this trend is that it’s a great way to rock bling sans actual jewelry, which is necessary for a writer like myself. (Try typing for hours with fussy rings on and you’ll see what I mean.) If you’re ready to give your digits a futuristic upgrade, here are a few of my favorite shades of the aluminum foil-inspired variety.
These days, it seems like just about everyone in beauty is doing a collaboration with some celebrity, designer, big-name artist, or other. (Well, they do say two heads are better than one!) But nothing could have prepared us for the triple threat presented by these new, limited edition nail wraps from Glamour's seventh-annual Fashion Gives Back program. Born out of the efforts of Los Angeles nail brand NCLA, Glamour, and 10 Crosby Derek Lam, these babies give a nod to beauty, fashion, and tech.
