A falling bra strap may be cute in the bedroom, but in the boardroom? Not so much. Shoulder shape is often the culprit, as women with narrow or downward-sloping shoulders often report that their bra straps won’t stay put, even when the straps are properly tightened. Lucky for petite-shouldered women, the solution involves an excuse to go shopping! U-back style bras prevent slipping because they generally have narrower-set straps and the additional coverage (compared to a bra with a traditional back) creates a more secure fit to the body.

Every holiday season, you tell yourself you’ll finally brave wearing something sequined to one of the many festive occasions on your calendar. And every year, you’re simply too intimidated to try incorporating the sparkly, flashy embellishment into your look. Sound familiar?

Blackheads can be even more annoying—and tougher to get rid of—than the occasional pimple flare-up. That's because a blackhead is the result of excess oil and dead skin that gets trapped inside your pores. When the clog is exposed to air, it turns black and—voila—a blackhead appears. Once they're there, they can hang around for months. And as unsightly as they can be, picking at them usually only makes things worse (like, turning-into-a-giant-pimple worse).
In lieu of taking matters into your own hands (literally) in front of your magnifying mirror, try one of these pore-clearing masks. They'll help loosen up existing blackheads (making it easier to perform safe extractions) and help prevent new ones from popping up.
Read on to see seven masks that can help banish blackheads.
If you live anywhere in America that's basically not located right on a beach in California, then you're probably quite aware that a blast of cold weather called the Polar Vortex has hit much of the country. Snow, ice, and cold rain have taken the nation by storm.
Raise your hand if you pretty much live in denim on the weekends! It can’t just be us. The great thing about denim is how versatile it is, but the other edge of that sword is that a lot of times your denim-based outfits tend to grow a little dull and monotone after a while. It becomes challenging to do new things with the same pairs of jeans, you know?

At last night’s opening of Nasty Gal’s first brick-and-mortar in Los Angeles, we caught up with the brand's incredibly cool founder and CEO, Sophia Amoruso, to learn more about the store and her on-going success as a #GirlBoss. Amoruso worked hard to make the store, which sells a mix of vintage and Nasty Gal clothing, a fun place to shop, including features like a killer shoe selection, which Team Nasty Gal named The Shoe Salon, mirrors in every corner, bright furniture, and a dressing room with one-way mirrors as the centerpiece.

Shopping for bikini tops and breezy t-shirts in the wintertime may seem counterintuitive, but it’s actually not.

Just over a year ago, we packed our bags and left our beloved London for the sunnier climes of Los Angeles. We tearfully kissed our loved ones goodbye and hoped we would find a tribe in our new city, old and new. Lo and behold, the City of Angels brought forth amazing opportunities for all of us, and for me in the form of the most excellent moms at our new school. One of those beautiful, hardworking, entrepreneurial and creative women was none other than Monique Lhuillier, and we struck up the idea for a collab during a school event. We decided to do a perfect holiday capsule collection, from her main line, and also from ML, the more accessible line, so that there is something for everyone. Not only do we share a love for beautiful, well-made clothing and a belief in other working moms, our sons share the same classroom. This one is for Jack and Moses.
It's probably pretty clear that my favorite dressing up outfit is a black jumpsuit. It's a no-brainer, always flattering, and always brings an edge of cool to a fancy evening. Rest assured, I've tried every contender, with this Band of Outsiders version being a stand-out. I've had it for three years, and worn it what seems like a hundred times—so many people have asked me about it that I asked Scott to reissue it for us at goop. I'm pretty excited about this collab with one of my all-time favorite brands: I wear Band of Outsiders all of the time because it never goes out of style.
