1) Five Easy Mindfulness Exercises You Can Do at the Office. (It’s finals, I need all the clarity I can get.)

2) This Moda Luxe handbag in pale grey is perfection for work or travel.  How is it only $50?

3) ISIS enshrines a culture of rape in its theology.  (From last week, but some stories need to be told.)

4) I finally snapped up this Ann Taylor midi-dress in bright poppy.  It’s fantastic.  I’m also loving this dotted, crepe shirtdress.

5) Two women have made it to the final segment of the Army’s Ranger School.  If they complete it, they’ll be the first women to do so, but they’ve already impressed top commanders. #yougogirls

6) This Maggy London mesh-inset dress in raspberry is incredible.  (Incredible.)  Also in plus-size.

7) Man poses as a Target customer service employee on Facebook to hit back at those who hate that the toy section will no longer be labeled by gender.

8) Need a cool athletic flat (that’s not a sneaker) to wear to yoga?  These Cole Haan ‘Zerogrand’ flats are incredible.  These New Balance ballet flats are an affordable alternative.

9) Colleges are inflating ‘cost of attendance’ figures to increase NCAA stipends for student athletes.  Because college wasn’t expensive enough already.

10) I just switched to these Simple Micellar makeup removing wipes and I don’t know how I lived without them.  Gentle, but powerful.

11) Looking for a chic appetizer?  These endive, goat cheese, almond and fig boats look incredible.

Eye Candy. This Antonio Berardi cocktail dress has so much drama it needs a therapist.

    Belle, thanks for sharing this extremely moving article on ISIS. It is sad to know that this is happening in the world and I’m glad that our country is doing what we can to help stop it. I regularly watch TV news and they never seem to put out “real news” like this. They only want to talk about which politician supports going over to the Middle East to stop ISIS or who is at fault for us being there in the first place. Articles like this bring some perspective to why we want to stop this militant group.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
