Get Candid with August's Guest Editor
This month we've partnered with boho-goddess Nicole Richie, star of Candidly Nicole, to curate a box of five of her favorite beauty picks. We love tuning in each week to take notes from Richie's individual (and totally enviable) sense of stylewhether she's sporting blue hair or blue eyeliner. Haven't watched yet? Catch up on the most recent episodes from season two on VH1.
Cool Off with this Portable Cocktail
The only thing more quintessentially summer than a salted frozen watermelon margarita? A salted frozen watermelon margarita on a stick. This popsicle-cocktail hybrid from How Sweet Eats is everything our warm-weather dreams are made of, which is exactly why we'll be freezing up a batch come Saturday afternoon.
Watch this Summer's Gone Girl
Last fall's film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl left audience members speechless (and Oscar-voters impressed). And now Flynn's words are back on the big screen this Friday with Dark Places, her second book-to-screen mystery-thriller. How will star Charlize Theron stack up against Rosamund Pike's chilling "Amazing Amy"? You'll have to watch to find out.
Plant a Desktop Garden
Your fish might get jealous when they spot this aquarium rock planter DIY from A Beautiful Mess. All you need is colorful gravel (the brighter the better) and an empty fishbowl to add a pop of color to any countertop. We plan on adding self-sufficient greenery and a wide range of cacti to the mixDIY thumbs are better than green thumbs anyway.
