Much has been made, as of late, of the Danish philosophy of hygge. What you need to know: It's pronounced "hoo-ga" and is, in latent terms, an aesthetic and emotional celebration of all things cozy and convivial. And a new tome, The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living, out Tuesday, instructs on how to use the practice to cure the ailments of the modern world. Did we mention that, according to studies, Danes are meant to be among the happiest people on earth? Perhaps st
New York has been really cold lately. Negative numbers-cold. So cold, in fact, that this past weekend, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a warning for people to stay indoors to avoid the “life threatening” temperatures that were gripping the city with their icy, terrible hands. But do you think BDB’s decree was enough to stop New York Fashion Week’s dedicated troop of street style baiters from peacocking outside the shows in spring’s coolest wares while making exaggerated gestures at imaginary taxi cabs, all in the hopes of landing their curated outfits on a street style blog or highly regarded Instagram feed?
Freezing temps and frigid winds paired with dry winter heat adds up to seriously dehydrated skin, but these moisturizers that are powerful enough to heal even the worst case of dry skin.
The anticipation of a snow day is almost as good as the day itself. It’s all about imagining your dream day, one that’s full of relaxation and productivity. We stock up on bottled water and extra batteries like we’re about to go live underground for a few months (maybe that’s just my parents). We think about finally giving that baking project a go, or finishing up the novel on our bedside table, or having a Monopoly marathon—and then actually do it!.

At one point this past summer (a point that I’m not particularly proud of), I ate burgers for dinner for an entire week straight. In my defense, I was on a burger-high from discovering Ashley Rodriguez’s special burger sauce, had just discovered that my Emergency-Use-Only Fire Escape doubled as the perfect Burger-Eating Nook, and was doing “research” for an article. My recipe was simple and unchanging: I layered buns swiped with Ashley’s sauce, a freshly-ground patty, a tomato slice, onion rounds, and arugula.
Sometimes being trapped indoors because of the cold or snow can be great. Curling up for a Making a Murderer binge session with some warm hot chocolate — Netflix and chill (without the literal chill). But for some people, freezing temperatures are part of their winter lives and there are only so many hours of Steven Avery one can take before getting a little stir crazy. So let’s assume that’s why citizens of Minnesota, the United States’ own frozen tundra, have taken to freezing their jeans as a form of art.
Winter dressing means piling on the layers. As anyone knows, the base of a good cold-weather wardrobe starts with a trusty pair of thermals (see also: long johns or long underwear).

Last week we tested a Spiced Buttermilk Roast Chicken for a recipe contest and realized — after we’d eaten the entire chicken quickly, hungrily—that these spices are too good to reserve for desserts and sugar-spiked coffees.

Oftentimes when I tell my friends and coworkers about my love for long, oversized nightgowns, I get less-than-agreeable reactions. “Don’t they bunch up while you’re sleeping?” they ask, and “Why would you want to look like a grandma?” My answers are as follows: They don’t bunch up, because I take them off when I’m getting into bed.

You know winter is coming when everyone starts breaking out shearling coats and accessories. Recently we’ve seen Rihanna don a long tan version by Chanel for a trip to a nightclub, while Jennifer Lawrence — the perennial press junketier — opted for a hooded black number by Alberta Ferretti while out and about in New York City. Shearlings, which are lined in wool, don’t overwhelm your silhouette the way that puffer coats can. Here are three ways to wear the coveted piece.

Swap your lightweight summer moisturizer for something thicker and formulated with ingredients that will lock in moisture and repair your skin.

In woodsy New England, where I grew up, the most festive way we celebrated fall was with huge bonfires mediated by volunteer firefighters, the whole town cozying up around the flames with apples and cider doughnuts. The bonfire is a harder feat to accomplish if you live in a city, but it doesn’t mean you can’t crowd around something fiery with a few pals (or, you know, your town—or at least your neighbors). Reimagine the bonfire with these 15 spicy, spicy recipes. Don’t forget to keep some beers nearby in case you need to put out the flames
I may be a Paris Fashion Week newbie, but I know a good party when I see one. Everything was covered in paste-ups that were meant to evoke a lunar landing, and silver UFO-like constructions were scattered throughout the runway. The opening look was Parisian model-turned-DJ-turned-author Caroline de Maigret, who strode out in a silver onesie, armed with a remote control in one hand and a helmet in another. Then came the real show, which included a roster of top models that included Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Constance Jablonski, and Saskia de Brauw, among others.
