So much so, in fact, that we’ve replicated Carly, Kate, and Amber’s tropical escape. For you. To win.

As soon as the seasons change, so does my skincare regimen. Sure, I slather on the SPF-infused moisturizer year-round, but now that it’s spring, I’m looking to liven up my pale Northeast complexion – without any damaging rays of sun. Cue Clarins to the beauty rescue.
I spoke with one of the brand’s insiders, who gave me the scoop on its new Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. Which, as it happens, is what super-chic celebrity stylist Sophie Pera uses to maintain her enviably bronzed complexion. I dare you to tell me you’re not preemptively obsessed after watching the video below.
It’s a normal day at the office, and then you hear it – a sneeze coming from your cubemate. You know the drill. Grab the Clorox wipes, whip out the Emergen-C, and subtly suggest they head home early. But what do you do when it’s your coworker’s stress, not cold germs, that’s contagious?
According to the Wall Street Journal, this is actually a real thing – a coworker’s high stress levels are infectious. So that frazzled colleague who’s always slamming the phone down, racing from meeting to meeting, and in a 24/7 panic is, whether you realize it or not, giving you secondhand stress. And here you thought secondhand smoke was annoying.
The worst part? There is no Emergen-C for this little predicament – unless doling out Xanax is allowed in your office (and I’m guessing it isn’t). Until then, I plan on sending around this study to a select few colleagues. And I’ll probably throw in a wink face, because emojis make everything acceptable, right?
For your locomotive-loving nephew (or uncle) visiting from Atlanta
Lionel Polar Express Freight-Train Set Built to look exactly like the train in the forever-classic holiday book and movie The Polar Express, this electric replica is any kid’s – or, you know, adult’s – dream come true. Complete with a round track (that happens to fit perfectly around a tree) and an air whistle, there are few things that set this locomotive apart from the original, besides the lack of a wisecracking conductor who looks and sounds remarkably like Tom Hanks.
Deos “Shine” In-Ear Buds
She’s always the first to try out a new trend. Her mailbox is filled with every fashion magazine known to man. And when it comes to commuting, this fashionista wants two things: a seat on the train, and a stylish way to listen to her music. Meet these sleek Swarovski crystal-studded earphones. But, wait for it – she can actually personalize them to match her outfit. One day black goes best, the next? She adds the interchangeable embellishments and she’s rocking bedazzled earbuds from suburb to city center. Boom.
“Nightmare Travel Ahead.” “Wicked Weather.” “Winter Storm to Affect Everybody.” The headlines and weather reports are in. This Thanksgiving weekend, snow – and lots of it – is headed your way.
So break out some shovels, stock up on hot cocoa, and pull out those mobile devices. We’re talking cell phones, iPads®, whatever you have – make sure they’re charged and get ready to shop. You see, we took everything you love about Rue La La and translated it to fit your favorite mobile device, which means instant access to style must-haves, no matter how snowed in you get this weekend.
So, while your favorite stores may be closed, we’ll be open. Simply download our app and cozy up by the fire. That whole snowed-in thing – it’s really not so bad now, is it?
There’s one thing everyone has in common during the holidays: gifting. But checking everything off those lists isn’t the simplest of tasks. Until now. See below for five of the ways Rue is making holiday shopping easier than ever. Oh, and picking up something for yourself in the process? Totally acceptable.
It’s amazing how good you feel when you find those pieces that flatter your every curve. Especially when it’s a dress that can take you from desk to dance floor with the addition of a few glittering extras. But which cuts are compatible with each shape? Here are three of the most common pairings:
This is as universal as it gets. Nipping in at the waist and skimming loosely over the hips and thighs, this dress works on everyone, from pear-shaped to athletic body types.
Sporting a flattering V-neck that draws the eye down, this classic style works well for fuller busts and hourglass shapes.
By accentuating the top half of the body just above the natural waist, this cut best flatters women with apple-shaped body types. Details around the neck also help to bring the focus up.
There’s always someone on your list that you just don’t know how to shop for. The solution? The Rue Gift Card.
Here’s how it works:
Purchase The Rue Gift Card directly on Rue for the amount of your choice. It’s electronic, so you don’t have to wait for something to arrive in the mail.
