C. Wonder, preppy haven of all things monogrammed and colorful, is closing its stores. The line was seemingly created as a copycat revenge project against C. Wonder owner Chris Burch’s ex-wife, designer Tory Burch, which makes me feel slightly less sad about missing out on the store’s semi-gaudy goodies. Still, I can’t help but mourn the loss of some of C. Wonder’s better designs. Here are some of the line’s cutest offerings, many of which are on sale, to snatch up while you still have the chance!
Bathroom mirrors got you down? Are you tired of always having to make awkward explanations to ER doctors about how you injured yourself trying to take a picture of your butt for your Instagram feed? Unable to tell if that sore on your ass is infected or what, and don’t feel like asking a friend? Wondering if your yoga pants are see-through and everyone in your Vinyasa class is secretly laughing at you (literally) behind your back?
DO I HAVE A PRODUCT FOR YOU!

Lilly Pulitzer is teaming up for a collaboration with Target! The collection will include 250 pieces ranging from $2 to $150 and will feature plus sizes, which some of Target’s past collaborations had left out.

But, as a recent convert to the cult of fancy face water, I’m here to say that there’s some truth to their mystique. Keep reading »
When I went to the gym early-early on Monday morning, I was shocked: Three of the four squat racks were occupied, two personal trainers were working with clients, and people were already on the Stairmaster (I don’t know why the Stairmaster is the first machine to get used at my gym every morning, but there it is). At 5:30 in the morning, at 10˚F, on a Monday, the gym was relatively packed. I wondered if I should skip my barbell workout and do a free-weight workout instead. Fuck that, I thought. I didn’t come here this early for nothing. Keep reading »
I was scrolling through nutrition news today when I happened upon this article on the decline of the Three Meals A Day paradigm. It’s weirdly depressing: It starts out talking about the fact that back in ye olde days, before electricity, people didn’t actually eat three meals a day — they had bread for breakfast and then one really big meal out in the fields in the afternoon, before it got dark. The argument is that there’s no biological need to eat three meals a day. Keep reading »
