Friday finds, volume II (Dec/9/2016)

There are so many non-dairy milks to choose from now; what is the most nutritious, and what are the benefits (and pitfalls) of each? // Would you like soy, cashew, almond, or coconut milk in your coffee?

It’s that time of year, any and all lists to sum up 2016. // Paperbacks, hardcovers, and Kindle downloads await you over the holiday break.

Caroline de Maigret has started her own lifestyle and fashion blog in partnership with Chanel. // What more could I wish for this holiday season?!

How many masks is too many? What to use and when to use them. // Masking, the new new.

Need a confidence-boosting new lipstick? // How powerful (#girlboss) does a fab red lip make you feel?

Don’t have time to travel to the world’s finest retail flagships to scout your fave holiday windows? // Escape with WWD and channel your inner holiday elf!

My heart beets for the lemons, spinach, and chia seeds that will make my skin glow this winter! // Look fresher than ever.

Bilinguals are better. Just kidding. // However, their brains can compute more than one thing at a time.

Oh Netflix, all I want for Christmas is you. // Offline streaming for when you're 30,000 feet in the air or are stranded in the middle of the New Mexico desert with Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

Almost daily, we continue to discover the bountiful benefits of yoga, but who knew it could help clear up your skin too? // Headstands, shoulder stands, lotus, oh my!

Do not ever give up. // “There is always something riveting about seeing someone whose life exceeds their dreams.”

XOXO,
