Beauty

The Beauty Department has an interesting idea–moisturize with body oil before getting in the shower.

Use juice from the inside out for beautiful hair, skin, & nails. Check out the recipe from Politics of Pretty.

Beth has very pale skin so this “how-to” from Huffington Post if you have pale skin really struck a chord with her.

Style

Neon yellow lace overlay skirt paired with a simple white tee, crystal necklace, black pumps and a black purse = perfection from Kendi Everyday:

Love this “edgy chic” ensemble sported by Keri Russell (and recreated by Frankie Hearts Fashion).

Travel AND style envy from Kendra’s Closet Confections (she went to Italy, plus she wore great clothing there–double whammy).

J.Crew Factory is offering 30% off new arrivals. Our favorites: the neon floral burst necklace, square drop earrings, and dotted shapes necklace:

Lifestyle

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Here’s a fun round up of unconventional V-Day cards from A Cup Of Jo.

Throwing a birthday or anniversary party with a number theme (like the big 5-0)? Check out these cute ideas from Martha Stewart.

There’s a reason this video of a bulldog papa teaching his baby pups to play has gone viral. Adorable:
