The Other Woman Sweepstakes: Win an Escape to The Cove Atlantis

If you haven’t noticed, we’re a bit (fine, very) obsessed with Fox’s new movie, The Other Woman. Right down to its dreamy Bahamian locale, The Cove Atlantis.

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

The Cove Atlantis

Enter The Other Woman Sweepstakes to score a getaway to The Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas, including complimentary access to a luxe poolscape, the Aura Nightclub, and more. The best part? You can bring two of your favorite partners in crime – er, best friends.

Our Movie-Inspired Style: The Other Woman Boutique opens Monday, April 14, at 3PM ET. And be sure to catch the movie, premiering everywhere April 25.

Spring Is Here: Get Glowy (Sans Sun) with Clarins

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.

Spreading Stress at the Office – Yes, It’s Real

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?

Is Stress 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?

Our Gift Pick of the Day: Polar Express Electric Train Set

For your locomotive-loving nephew (or uncle) visiting from Atlanta

Train Set Gift Pick

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.

Our 24 Hours of 24 Fixes: Holiday Edition Part II Boutique opens Monday, December 2 at 8AM ET.

Goof-Proof Gifting Reason #1: Free returns. For everyone on your gift list. Learn more.

Matchmaking 101: Find Your Body’s Best Dress Shape

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:

Find Your Body's Best Dress Shape

A-Line
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.

Wrap
Sporting a flattering V-neck that draws the eye down, this classic style works well for fuller busts and hourglass shapes.

Empire
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.

Our 10 Ways to Wear: The Little Black Dress Boutique opens Saturday, November 9, at 11AM ET.
