It’s been named the holy grail of skincare by top beauty editors around the world, and after trying Lotion P50 from Biologique Recherché, we definitely agree!

Game day bracelet 

Represent your favorite college football team this season with a game day beaded stretch bracelet from BOEM Boutique. We’re Alabama fans, so we picked up a Bama bracelet for $18, but they also come in plenty of other teams like Clemson, South Carolina and N.C. State. (They also make Carolina Panthers bracelets, by the way!)
