Offering lots of great beauty benefits and an overall calming feeling, from green to black, there’s a variety of teas out there that will make you feel great. Between anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, the beauty benefits of herbal tea are pretty endless. Check ‘em out below!

I have to admit, I was over-the-top thrilled to hear that fashion icon, Vivienne Westwood recently announced that she’s writing a memoir. Getting help from friends like Pamela Anderson, Prince Charles and historian, Ian Kelly, Westwood plans to give us some pretty great stories from the 70s. Seeing the world through Westwood’s eyes will be pretty amazing – I can’t wait!
Following her life as a self-taught designer and her wild ascent through the fashion industry, I have a feeling this memoir won’t disappoint. She’s been known to push boundaries in fashion, leaving people curious for more.
Vivienne Westwood Memoir Coming October 2014
“Vivienne is much more than what you first see. She is passionately committed to human rights and to eco-politics, but as well as that I am keen to tell the truth about a huge-hearted, warm and witty individual, whose face and clothes are known the world over – but who is also recognisably the Derbyshire primary school teacher who met and fell in love with Malcolm McLaren and changed the world.”- Ian Kelly
Who else is on the edge of their seat for the release of the grandmother of punk’s memoir? (I’m not so sure I can wait until October 2014!)

Wow! Have you heard of this new online marketplace called Twice? Founded by two smart guys, who met while working at Google, Twice is an online shop for reselling used clothing. It’s such an awesome concept – making it super simple to clean out your closet with some great incentive too. Here’s how it works:
- Clean out your closet and make a big pile of clothes you’re ready to donate or resell.
- Download a free shipping label from liketwice.com (or you can even request a free shipping bag).
- Send in your clothes.
- The team at Twice receives your clothes. They measure and photograph everything while also deciding which pieces they want to make an offer on.
- The Twice team sends you an offer for the clothes they’d like to resell – the payment is deposited in your Twice account or you can choose to receive a paper check.
- Twice resells the clothes they chose and donates the rest of your remaining items to Goodwill.
Twice founders Noah-Ready Campbell and Calvin Young both grew up wearing mostly second-hand clothes – so they get it. You can buy and sell great used clothing – and find some great pieces while you’re at it. Twice takes the guess work out of the whole process, making it super simple and fun!
Would you resell your clothes through Twice? Have you tried it? (PS: they are having 40% off everything right now!)

With eating a delicious meal and hanging out with family being my Thanksgiving priorities, it’s important my clothes be comfy but still chic. Jeggings or leggings with a cozy sweater are an absolute must and paired with boots and festive scarf, I still feel dressed for the holiday season.
And how lovely is that phone cover? Be thankful today and every day – it’s a reminder we all need.
