Stream Solange’s Album ‘A Seat at the Table’

A Seat at the Table
Just days after announcing her new album, Solange invites you to take A Seat at the Table.
The 21-track effort has been three years in the making and comes via Saint Records/Columbia.
The guest list includes familiar faces such as Lil Wayne, Kelly Rowland, Sampha, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, Tweet, and Q-Tip, among others.

5 Days, 5 Ways: Because Everything's Better Off-the-Shoulder

ESC: 5 Days, Jasmine Tookes
Off-the-shoulder tops (and dresses) are having a moment—and we're praying that moment never ends.
Not only is this trend extremely popular among top models (as you're about to see), but they're also endlessly versatile and undoubtedly sexy (as you're also about to see).
Take Jasmine Tookes' off-duty look as an example. It's about managing to show off an appropriate amount of skin while looking flattering from every angle. The cut works on every woman and pairs well with pretty much anything you have in your closet, from high-waisted baggy jeans (like the VS Angel's) to midi skirts to cutoffs. Now, her look is on the dressier side of casual—thanks to those heeled booties—but feel free to play up your comfort and swap open-toed boots like those with a fresh set of sneakers.

While on the subject of luxury, I discovered this $4,600 FENDI 3Jours Small Python and Leather Tote:

The Secretary Blouse

The high-collared ruffled neck of the secretary blouse lends itself well to mixing business with pleasure. This office appropriate top also happen to swing us effortlessly into cocktail hour with all of its flirtatious frills.  To bombshell this blouse, look for a structured version for an extra touch of couture. Opposites do attract, so pair the conservative pretty with a printed pair of cigarette trousers. Finesse with the ever-trending white sneaker, but upgrade to its bad ass stiletto bootie incarnation (Thank you, Riri!). Sprinkle in sophistication with crystal stud earrings, a pave crystal bracelet, and a chevron-printed shoulder bag. For added warmth, opt for the delicate drape of a funnel neck coat.

The Beauty Beat: Chrissy Teigen's Fave Beauty Buy Is Crazy-Inexpensive

ESC: Chrissy Teigen, Beauty Beat
Chrissy Teigen is one of those rare human beings who seem to have it all.
Not only is she married to the John Legend, mom to a precious little baby girl and likely the funniest celeb on Twitter, she always looks good doing it. You might think this is all thanks to an arsenal of beauty products, but no. When she's not on the red carpet the model is refreshingly low-key. She even used the words hippie and granola to describe her no B.S. approach to beauty.
If you don't believe her about the low-key stuff, just keep reading!

Angelina Jolie Working With Real-Life Olivia Pope for Brad Pitt Divorce

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie
E! News confirms that the A-lister's team has hired famous crisis manager Judy Smith to help with her highly publicized divorce with Brad Pitt. And this is pretty interesting, considering Smith is the real-life Olivia Pope who inspired Kerry Washington's character in the hit Shonda Rhimes series.
"She is typically a calming non-combative influence," a source tells us. "Certainly seems like someone to give better advice than what she has been apparently been getting."
In other words, it's handled.

TRIED IT!: I Went 21 Days Without Wearing Deodorant
No. I’m not a hippie or someone extremely earthy crunchy. While I do my part for the environment and am proud of my consciousness, this has nothing to do with a larger movement and everything to do with cancer prevention and the “little things” that can improve my overall health in the long-run. When I learned about the dangers of antiperspirants and deodorants, it was worth risking smelling a little funky.

7 Things Every Parent Of A Teen Needs To Know Before Having “The Talk”
Sitting down with your son or daughter to talk about the birds and the bees may be one of the most anxiety-ridden conversations a parent will have to face with their child. According to motivational speaker and teen relationship expert, Jackie Brewton, it’s never been more imperative: “Less than 50 percent of teenagers are given the talk, and if they don’t learn about it from you, they’re going to learn from their friends or the media. So much of the teenage sex that is happening now is happening out of obligation. Girls don’t get that they’re the prize. They feel like they can earn love and approval through sex.”

You're Doing It Wrong: Glitter Nail Polish

ESC: Demi Lovato, Nails

Nail trends come and go, but sparkly nails are forever.
For one, glitter nail polish is an easy fix for masking chipped polish and, for the most part, it lasts longer than other solid colors. On top of that, it's a festive, low-key beauty look that you can sport any time, any place.
However, if you're going to have your nails shine like Demi Lovato, it's all about getting the right amount on each nail, (a.k.a. no patchy areas). If you've tried glitter before, it usually takes a few layers to avoid those barren areas, but then, four coats in, it takes eons to dry. "If you want it to look as good as it does in the bottle, then, yes, there is a correct way to do it and make it look so much cooler," shared beauty pro Kelli Marissa.

Found: The Holy Grail of Concealers

ESC: Holy Grail Concealer
It doesn't matter how perfect your skin is, no makeup user should be without a good concealer.
Some people only whip theirs out for emergency breakouts, while others can't leave the house without dabbing it on daily. Personally, I fall into the latter category. I don't usually have harsh under-eye bags or uneven pigmentation, but I do have what I consider to be embarrassing, must-cover issues like acne and redness. No matter how good my full-coverage foundation is, I always use a concealer to seal the deal.
Even if your complexion is crystal clear, you're bound to need one at some point because, let's face it, we're all human. With so many concealers to choose from, which one comes out on top?
