    Emily Ratajkowski Brings Her Cowboy Boots To the Countryside

    This summer the style set has been stomping around in cowboy boots and kicking up their heels in footwear that wouldn’t look out of place in a classic Western. But how to make sure you’re channeling the good, and not the bad or ugly? Take your cues from Emily Ratajkowski, who has been stalking the streets of Manhattan in a pair of calf-length boots from Zara paired with bright baggy sweaters and matching separates. 

    More recently, the model and mogul has packed her most practical boots for a trip to the countryside, where she’s been enjoying some downtime with her son, Sylvester, and dog, Colombo. EmRata posted snaps of her riding a John Deere UTV on her Instagram Story, as seen below.

    Well prepared for her muddy surroundings, she wore a cami top and jeans tucked into cowboy boots, in contrast to her more polished city looks, where she’s spent the summer in slinky slip dresses and skirts.

    Rachel Bilson Had an NSFW Answer to a Question About Bill Hader

    When it comes to her Emmy-winning ex Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson is not holding back. 

    In an episode of Bilson’s podcast, Broad Ideas, released Monday, August 15, guest Tommy Dorfman prodded Bilson about the former Saturday Night Live star. 

    “When you and Bill broke up, what did you miss the most?” she asked. 

    “His big dick,” Bilson replied. Then she laughed and said, “We can keep that…. And cut, let’s move on.” No, Rachel, I actually want to hear more….

    Steve Granitz

    Bilson, who starred on Fox’s hit teen drama The O.C., dated SNL alum Hader starting in the fall of 2019 and was later spotted in Hader’s hometown of Tulsa over the holidays that year. The couple made their red-carpet debut at the Golden Globes in January 2020. But by the summer, the couple everyone was rooting for called it quits, per an Us Weekly report. 

    This is not the first time Bilson has spoken about her relationship with Hader; she’s referenced the relationship several times on her podcast. In an episode released in June with guest Mandy Moore, per Vanity Fair, Bilson said that she “went through a really hard breakup and it was during the pandemic. I could not leave my house, you know what I mean? I had nothing else to do but sit in it, and deal with it and feel it. It was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done⁠, harder than childbirth.” Bilson added that the end of the relationship “hurt like a motherfucker.”

    Could Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader be the next Jen and Ben? I respect their privacy, but I’m also secretly rooting for them.


    Hailey Bieber Is Figuring Out Marriage Day By Day

    Hailey Bieber has bene married for almost four years, but she’s still figuring things out as she goes. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the model spoke about marriage and her husband of almost four years, recording artist Justin Bieber.

    The 25-year old Rhode skincare founder has a slightly unconventional perspective on the concept of marriage. Bieber, who got married in 2018 at 21, told Harper’s Bazaar that her approach to marriage is that she’d rather get married and figure things out, as opposed to the more conventional approach of figuring things out before getting married. Bieber says that she and Justin—who both experienced medical issues earlier this year—are taking on life together.

     “I just think life is changing all the time,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “Day to day, week to week, year to year. I think a perfect example of that is over the last six months, both of us have gone through very serious health issues. You have to figure out how to deal with this shit as it comes, you know? There’s a reason they say ‘for better or for worse.’ Like, that’s for real!”

    “He’s still the person that I wanna be rushing back to,” Bieber added about her husband. “I might fly somewhere and go do a job, but I can’t wait to come back and hang out. And I feel like that’s because of the effort that’s been put in on both sides. At the end of the day, like, he’s my best friend, but it still does take a lot of work to make it work. And then I know eventually, when kids come in the picture, that’s going to be a whole other season of navigating how to make that work.”


    Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly Reportedly Still Together Despite Breakup Rumors

    If you woke with a start this morning wondering, Are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly still together? then boy, do I have news for you!

    The couple is indeed still going strong in the face of breakup rumors, at least according to TMZ. Sources tell the outlet that “they’re doing just fine” and have “no big issues” which sounds… promising, I guess. 

    Rumors of a breakup have been floating about in the MGK-Megan Fox universe over the past few weeks, apparently because Fox hasn’t posted a photo of the two of them together since May. But that has less to do with relationship strife and more to do with logistics, according to TMZ’s source.

    Instagram content

    This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.

    “They obviously can’t be together 24/7,” writes the outlet, “both of them work and have kids, but we’re told they’re solid.” Fox shares three children with ex Bryan Austin Green, and Machine Gun Kelly has a 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

    Fox didn’t attend MGK’s recent performance in Cleveland over the weekend—which also fueled breakup rumors—but he did apparently refer to Fox as his “wife” on stage, which he has previously explained is not to be taken literally. 

    “I think when I speak about terminology—it never felt like my girlfriend,” he told Entertainment Tonight back in June. “It feels too adolescent for the depth of our relationship.”

    The couple, who announced their engagement in January of 2022, are also busy planning a wedding and drinking each other’s blood, both of which are time-consuming activities (or so I’m told) that may have contributed to the dearth of coupled up pics of the pair in recent weeks. Understandable, tbh!


    Can Michellar Water Really Fix Oily Hair?

    If greasy hair is your beauty nemesis, it might be because you’ve been washing your hair wrong all along. The secret, at least according to a some TikTok hair influencers? Micellar water.

    That’s right, TikTok has presented us with yet another supposed hair hack—and this time it’s for all those oily-scalped folks out there. According to one viral video, the key to non-greasy lengths is rinsing your hair with micellar water before shampooing. Who knew?

    Abbey Yung first tried out the technique back in April, and the video has since picked up 1.2 million views. In the clip, she pours micellar water over the top of her head before shampooing twice, saying, “I applied the micellar water directly to my scalp and evenly saturated my roots… [and] massage it in.”

    This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.

    Showing off her results once her hair was dry, she said, “WOW my hair feels SO clean. Also so soft and shiny! I’m obsessed.”

    Another TikToker, Daniela Flores, has shared that she likes to spritz a micellar water product to refresh the roots of her curly hair, rather than washing it. “I am just now finding out about this technology, but it’s the tea!!” she’s captioned her own video.

    In theory, micellar technology could be beneficial for greasy hair or product build up considering it’s used in a similar way on the skin. Micellar water is made up of micelles—that is, tiny cleansing balls suspended in water—which attract oily substances and draw them away from the skin. Or, it seems, hair. That’s why it’s not so surprising that some have found them to be clarifying as a hair treatment.

    However—as many have pointed out—dousing your hair in micellar water every time you shampoo isn’t exactly cost-effective or eco-friendly, for that matter. For a homemade alternative, you could try an apple cider vinegar hair rinse. Simply mix 3-4 tablespoons with around 2 cups water. Micellar-infused shampoo also exists, which could potentially give you the benefit of the technology without having to use so much product.

    We’ve rounded up some micellar waters, shampoos, and treatments below…

    Your Ultimate Guide to Bob Maintenance

    Bob haircuts are all the rage right now, but if you’re thinking of making the big chop, it’s important to remember bob maintenance too. From the effortless curls of the Boticelli and baby wave bobs to the cool-girl vibes of the boyfriend and bottleneck bobs, different cropped cuts require upkeep to look their very best. 

    So, how often should you get your bob cut? In general, make sure to get trimmed regularly to maintain the shape and style. According to Sarah Lund, style master at Kevin Murphy, this means you should hit up your stylist every month and a half for a trim. “This all depends on personal preference, but hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month,” says Lund. “So the sweet spot to maintain your bob is around six weeks.”

    This timeframe also depends on the type of bob you have. If you’re looking to transition to a lob, celebrity hair stylist and SexyHair ambassador Clayton Hawkins says you can wait a few months before trimming. “If you have a soft bob that hits your shoulders, you can get away with going several months before trims,” he says. “It can easily transition into a lob during this time as well. If you have a sharp bob that hits above shoulders, ideally you’re going in every six weeks.”

    There are exceptions though—if you have a cut with bangs, make sure you stay on top of trimming. “Any haircut with bangs requires a lot of maintenance,” Hawkins says. If making the trip to the salon regularly doesn’t work with your schedule (or your wallet), there are other ways to get your bangs looking sharp. “Luckily there are lots of tutorials on TikTok to show you how to trim your fringe,” he adds. “But generally, the blunter or sharper a cut is, the more frequently you need to get it refreshed. If you don’t want to go to the salon a lot, ask for a softer cut that will grow out well.”

    Ready to get your bob looking fresh? Ahead, the best tips for bob maintenance and styling. 

    What bob haircut style should I get? 

    If this is your first time making the big chop, it’s important to factor in your texture and hair type. “Picking a look with your natural hair texture in mind is always going to give style longevity,” says Lund. “For instance, a sleek, blunt bob on straight hair will last between washes. Naturally curly and wavy hair works great with a textured, layered bob, by simply enhancing the natural texture of the hair.”

    How often should I wash my bob haircut?

    This fully depends on your hair type and texture, but keep in mind that length plays a factor. “Shorter hair tends to become oilier quickly,” says Frédéric Fekkai, founder of Fekkai. “I recommend those with fine to medium hair to shampoo hair every day, and for thicker hair, you should wash one to two times a week. If you’re washing hair more regularly, try a shampoo that targets hydration.”

    Joe Jonas Has Some Thoughts About Injectables

    It’s no surprise that the cosmetics industry wants to help men hide signs of aging too (hey, cash is cash). But Joe Jonas as a spokesperson for an “aesthetic treatment” was not a choice I saw coming. Wasn’t he just wearing a purity ring on Disney Channel? 

    The former boy bander opened up about his new gig on August 16. “I personally care a lot about what I put in my body, and with an aesthetic treatment like this, I wanted to be mindful of what was in it,” the father of two told People about his new partnership with Xeomin. What is in it? “A prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrow,” per the company’s website.

    According to the article, Xeomin’s product has a “uniquely purified formula that removes unnecessary proteins,” which I had no idea was a problem a person could have. Too much protein in my face! Whoops?

    Jonas added that he “tackled” a scar between his eyebrows and some frown lines which gave him a “confidence boost” (not super healthy but often unavoidable to get confidence from your appearance…), and what I’m getting at here is that the man is 33 years old.

    Thirty. Three.

    “I liked that it relieved the area a little bit and I was like, ‘Okay, this is great,’ without it being too much for my liking,” said Jonas, adding, “I appreciated that it wasn’t over the top. It’s very light.” No kidding! 33!

    26 Early Labor Day Sales You Really Shouldn’t Miss

    This summer brought more than its fair share of markdowns—thank you, Amazon and Nordstrom—and it’s not over just yet. The best Labor Day sales of 2022 are popping up early, and they’re shaping up to be some of the best we’ve ever seen, just in time for the unofficial end of the season.

    Although Labor Day weekend is still a few weeks off, retailers like Madewell, Dermstore, and Brooklinen are already slashing prices to make way for some fall newness—whether that manifests itself in your closet, on your vanity, or in your bedroom. The last few weeks of August are a great time to unwind by the pool, light up the grill, or bask in the great outdoors, of course—but now’s also your chance to hit the virtual shelves and snag tons of gems across fashion, beauty, and home for way below retail. (If summer has to come to an end, at least it’s going out in style.)

    There’s no telling when fall weather will swoop in this year, but transitional staples like jackets, boots, and knits are essential—and they’re already on sale for the holiday. Cult-favorite beauty products are also in the mix, as are a bevy of tech, smart home, and mattress deals, meaning there’s something for everyone and every budget. (We’re also keeping an eye out for Labor Day sales events from retailers like Best Buy, Wayfair, and The Home Depot, and we’ll update this story as they roll in.) Ahead, shop the best early Labor Day sales of 2022 before they—and summer—set like the fading sun.

    Best Early Labor Day Fashion Deals 2022

    The fashion destination may have just closed out its Anniversary Sale, but Nordstrom’s deal section just got replenished with some very chic finds from the likes of Reformation and Agolde. You’re going to want to do some digging.

    There’s always a sale (or a million) happening at Amazon, but the retailer is pulling out all the stops for the end of summer. Right now, you can snag Black Friday-worthy gems like a classic Levi’s jacket and a cashmere dress to start transitioning your summer wardrobe to fall. (Keep an eye out for coupons for extra savings.)

Use code FIRSTLOOK for 25% off at checkout—then start daydreaming about apple orchards and pumpkin spice lattes.

    Shopbop’s underrated sale section is one of the best places to zhuzh up your closet ahead of chillier weather. We’re talking chunky sweaters and chunkier clogs, plus steals on year-round staples like T-shirts and jeans.

    Whether you’re headed back to campus or college is a distant memory, one thing is certain: Urban Outfitters denim should be in your wardrobe. BDG, the brand’s in-house line, turns out consistently cute and well-made jeans for women—and it’s all an additional 25% off right now.

    Net-a-Porter’s sale section always swells at the end of every season, but the site’s selection of marked-down designer finds is especially good right now. (We’re talking up to 80% off, people!) Stretch out summer in a breezy dress or build out your year-round wardrobe with a pair of slick sunnies; there are no wrong answers here.

    Why pay full price for designer goods when you can just wait for it to go on sale at MatchesFashion? The multi-brand retailer stocks both established brands and up-and-coming labels, ensuring you’ll find something unique in its massive selection of markdowns. Our only advice: Act fast, because the best stuff sells out quickly.

    Ahead of Labor Day, all of Aerie’s cult-favorite leggings, bras, and bralettes are a whopping 40% off—and the rest of its collection also happens to be up to 30% off for a limited time. You’ll want to live in those tights as soon as October hits, so go ahead and stock up now.

Thanks to the brand’s biggest sale ever, you can score up to 60% off sitewide through August 31, no code necessary. Go get a head start on next summer’s wardrobe while you’re at it.

    It’s not every day that you can snag top-shelf beauty products for up to 25% off—but today is an exception. Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale is stocked with hundreds of our favorite hair- and skin-care products, from skin-clearing pads to lotion that’s ideal for drier days ahead.

    Planning a skincare switch-up for fall? Open a new tab for SkinStore. The retailer is offering up to 30% off cult-favorite beauty brands with no minimum spend. Plus, orders of $130 or more also get a free gift from PCA Skin.

    The two sexiest words in the English language? “Free shipping.” Through September 21, you can use code FREESHIP at Sephora to unlock complimentary shipping on your order. And since the beauty retailer’s sale section is already popping, that translates to even more savings on your favorite products.

    Ulta hasn’t announced any details about an official Labor Day sale just yet, but the site is known for going big this time of year. Until we know more about what to expect, you can shop markdowns at the site’s stacked sale section, which is full of brands like Revlon and Bio-Oil.

    Best Early Labor Day Home & Tech Deals 2022

    Those of you who take your bed (or bath) situation very seriously, pay attention: Brooklinen is currently offering 15% off nearly everything for new customers, plus 10% off for returning ones. Don’t miss the chance to stock up on its top-rated sheet sets, luxurious bath towels, and editor-beloved robes.

    Dyson’s best-in-class vacuums and air purifiers cost a pretty penny, so if you have the chance to snag one for $100 or $150 off, respectively, why not take it?

    The mega-retailer knows its way around a good sale, and its pre-Labor Day promotions are pretty impressive: steep discounts on Apple products, college essentials, and kitchen appliances, plus extra markdowns on clothes.

    You can always count on Bed Bath & Beyond to serve up deals during major holidays—and during back-to-school season. Shop markdowns on new mattresses, kitchen appliances, area rugs, home decor, patio furniture, washers and dryers, and more while supplies last.

    Walmart’s trademark rollbacks are in rare form right now. We’ve already spotted great deals on AirPods and air fryers, and if last year’s sale was any indication, more of the best Labor Day deals are on their way as the holiday weekend gets closer.

    Uninterrupted sleep is the dream, and with Casper offering 25% off its bedding bundles (complete with a mattress, foundation, and mattress protector), we can pretty much guarantee some quality shut-eye is on the horizon.

    Leesa is offering up to $400 off many of its top-rated memory foam mattresses, plus two free pillows, in honor of Labor Day. Oh, and you can also score 10% off all bedding, too.

    DreamCloud’s Labor Day mattress sale didn’t come to play: Right now, the brand is offering 25% off sitewide, and it’s throwing in nearly $500 worth of sheets, pillows, and mattress protectors with its mattresses for good measure.

    Helix is offering a sliding scale of discounts on its mattresses via a slew of discount codes; you’ll get anywhere from $100 off of $600 or more to $350 off $2,950 or more. The brand is also throwing in two free Dream pillows with your order for a truly relaxing night’s sleep.

    Best Early Labor Day Sex Toy Deals 2022

    14 Waterproof Mascaras That Do Not Budge

    Few things deliver such instant satisfaction as longer, darker lashes. The best waterproof mascaras do all that and more. A really great formula takes everything you love about the all-time best mascaras—falsie-level length, major volume, long wear—and gives it the power to withstand whatever you throw at it, whether that’s a beach day, a workout, or your run-of-the-mill grocery run on an 80-degree summer day.

    But waterproof formulas are also notoriously tricky. By nature, tough-acting, sweat-proof options tend to be drier, clump faster, and leave your lashes feeling brittle and hard. Or they’re a huge pain to take off at the end of the day. So if you’re new to the game or you’re still wondering whether the perfect waterproof mascara really does exist, here are a few basics to keep in mind.

    Is waterproof mascara better than regular mascara?

    There’s no clear-cut answer here because choosing a waterproof mascara largely depends on what any given day looks like for you. If you have a sweaty yoga class coming up, opting for a smudge-proof formula might be your best bet. The same goes if you live in a humidity hellscape, which can wreak havoc on even the most minimal no-makeup makeup look. But if you have fine or fragile lashes, you might want to avoid heavy-duty water-resistant formulas, since taking them off could tug or pull your lashes out.

    How to remove waterproof mascara

    The last thing you want to do is damage or lose lashes while taking your makeup off, so arming yourself with a great makeup remover is key. Soak a reusable cotton pad with a liquid formula or gently hold a micellar wipe to your lashes for 10 seconds to remove—just be sure not to rub or tug on the delicate eye area. If stubborn remnants continue to cling to your lashes, try nudging it free with a soaked Q-tip.

    Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk options. We polled Glamour editors with strong opinions on the topic, and they didn’t hold back in their reviews. Here are the best waterproof mascaras that withstand workouts, Nicholas Sparks movies, Queer Eye marathons, and—yes—even your best friend’s wedding.
