There is nothing like the fond memories that come with every passing holiday season. This year the girls felt they were both old enough to start the new tradition of baking cookies for Santa and we couldn’t agree more. After much discussion, Mika and Colette jointly agreed that Santa’s favorite cookie was chocolate chip-which wasn’t surprising being it’s their favorite cookie too. We spent the early afternoon baking together and learning the different dynamics of how a kitchen works. The entire activity was a creative and educational way to get the girls involved in a kitchen and introduce them to their unknown world of culinary. Each one had their own designated job which helped teach responsibility and controlled cleanliness. After a long afternoon and second successful batch we each treated ourselves with a cold glass of milk and a few leftover sweets.

It only makes sense the editor and creator of Man Repeller, Leandra Medine’s new office space is just as chic as she is. An urban retreat that evokes a sense of calm, her main focus was on clean and minimal details. “I’d seen an image of a white room with rustic wood floors and a ladder positioned somewhere that didn’t lead anywhere. It made me laugh/feel comfortable so I wanted to approximate that vibe,” says Medine. A fresh retreat, Medine’s Soho office is perfect for getting down to business.

Season after season the arm party continues to reign. It’s clear dressing your limbs has never been more fashionable- some even call it a form of art. It’s the creative process of stacking, layering and displaying jewelry on your fingers and wrists that make the most basic ensemble brilliant. When considering how much attention is placed on the wrist and arm these days, it makes sense that people are stacking everything they own up to their forearms. A fad born in the streets, this over-accessorizing phenomenon has feigned prosperity and permeated fashion scenes around the world. We suggest if you haven’t jumped on board yet, it’s definitely time to give it a try!

Whether it’s a pair of boyfriend jeans, denim cutoffs or a roughed up jacket, there is no better staple for your everyday outfit.

Stray from the super-sloppy look and keep your outfit pulled together by paring your denim with basic staples such as a feminine jacket or silk blouse.
Where have all the eyebrows gone? We’re not really sure and frankly we aren’t that interested in finding out. Whether they’ve been bleached to oblivion or completely shaved off, this new trend has cropped up fashion innovators around the globe. The “browless” look first arose last fall on runways and models like Lara Stone and is now reflected in magazines and designer advertisements. “Everything is possible right now, and that’s a great way to look at this moment,” says Sarah Brown, the beauty editor of Vogue. Not everyone is as open-minded on sacrificing their eyebrows but if you’re interested in shaking things up, maybe this cutting-edge look is for you. On the right face there is no denying its chic attraction but we kindly request to please proceed with caution.
