Pretzel Pencils

19
Pretzel Pencils are a fun back to school candy recipe! Pretzel sticks are covered in candy coating and decorated to look like pencils, in this variation on chocolate-dipped pretzels. This is one school supply you don't want to miss! I used pretzel "dipping sticks" to make this recipe--they're smaller than pretzel rods and about the circumference of a pencil. If you can't find them, you can always use pretzels of a different size, as long as they're straight sticks! INGREDIENTS 12 oz (2 cups) yellow candy coating 4 dozen pretzel "dipping sticks" or rods 1/4 cup white candy coating 1/4 cup chocolate chips 1/4 cup licorice bites (see Note below for substitutes)   Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes Yield: 48 pretzel pencils   PREPARATION 1.

This New MAC Cosmetics App Is Perfect For The Makeup-obsessed

15

tch out, Sephora. MAC is fueling the fire that burns our makeup addictions by giving us two of our favorite things: stuff to look at on our cell phones and free rewards. As PopSugar reports, they’ve just rolled out an amazing new app that gives us access to fun membership benefits (think early access to products!), keeps track of our purchase histories (which is kind of a scary prospect, TBH, but we’ll take it), and allows us to easily locate our nearest MAC counters (this would totes come in handy when we run out of “Ruby Woo” and need a refill ASAP).

Go out with a bang! #Regram by @makeupsessions of the #MACBanginBrilliant lipstick shades 💄 M∙A∙C Cosmetics(@maccosmetics)님이 게시한 사진님, 2016 8월 28...

We’re so excited to see our fave English actress, Emily Blunt, in The Girl on the Train this fall! Speaking of The Girl on the Train, the talentedmom of two looked amazing at the film’s premiere today in London. Her look, from head to toe, was super hippie chic – and we loved every bit of it.

 
Emily wore a floor-length, long-sleeved gown, adorned with an awesome floral print. It’s seriously unlike anything we’ve seen on the red carpet this season!

Her hair was pinned back in a neat, yet effortless bun, and we can’t get enough of this gorgeous headpiece! Great choice, Emily!

5 Fitness Apps That Make Morning Workouts Actually Doable

1

Full disclosure: I love waking up early—but my intentions don’t always align with my circadian rhythm. Recently I’ve made a deliberate effort to wake up earlier so that I can train in the morning and basically crush the day before starting work. It took a few weeks before the days felt less miserable and my coffee intake normalized, but these are the fitness apps that have helped me own my morning workouts.

 
Rock Clock is the app that I use when I know waking up is going to be a struggle.

Alex Eagle’s Fashionable Guide To Soho, London

40

Alex Eagle is a collector of all things timeless. Her knack for curating collections of simple, well-crafted clothes, home goods, books and art has landed her two stores – one in London and one in Berlin – both of which are anything but ordinary. Her shops feel more like a friend’s inspiring apartment – open, light-soaked spaces that are inviting, clean and simple. It’s a place to not only shop, but create, socialise and have a pressed juice or two.

Salted Caramel Molten Chocolate Cakes

34

What could be better than a chocolate cake? A chocolate cake that oozes pure gold deliciousness, of course. This isn’t gold in the actual sense (that would be a fairly toxic food option, we imagine) but salted caramel sauce, the kind of liquid gold you can gobble down until passing out from a sugar high (also a fairly unhealthy option). We ask that you exercise due caution when eating these sweet treats (slow down; take breaks; sip your tea in between bites), and add plenty of cream. Because then you can always say you’re getting your dairy. That’s a thing, right? Take a peek at Top With Cinnamon to see the full recipe.

Saint Laurent Campaign By Anthony Vaccarello

The inimitable Saint Laurent has teamed up with founder of 25 Magazine, Anja Rubik for their newest campaign, which was unveiled this September. The campaign by Anthony Vaccarello sees the model standing in as the new face of the house, representing the new Saint Laurent woman, who will grace Parisian billboards from September 28 with an outdoor campaign. Behind the lens is the iconic duo and longtime collaborators of Rubik, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, who have shot a romantic ode to Paris. The campaign displays a mysterious and hedonistic woman, who floats through YSL’s hometown elusively, her hair hiding her face. Inez and Vinoodh have also produced a video with Anja that debuts on September 27 through the brand’s...
