t-shirts
A little company called Litographs has brought together two of my favorite things: books and T-shirts.
skincare
A day routine may have anywhere between five and seven key products. A night routine -- and this is where most people balk -- can be between six and ten products.
hair accessories
Fear not, long-(or thick-)haired friends, I have four solutions to the problem of getting updos to stay up when you’ve got a lot of hair.
lipstick
19 xoJaners gush about what they've been enthusiastically smearing all over their mouths lately.
shoppables
twin peaks
I recreated wearable, updated versions of five characters’ looks, because everyone has a "Twin Peaks" archetype.
accessories
It's the one accessory I always have on me, not to mention the only one earning its keep. (Necklaces are so lazy, am I right?)
shoppables
hair color
summer
Days spent by the seaside are the best, but what’s a girl to do when the sun starts to set and that ocean breeze becomes shiver-inducing?
short people
I’ve spent my whole life thinking I’m too short to wear long skirts and dresses, but lately I’ve decided I don’t really care!
shoppables
I continue to be fascinated with questions and issues that form the core of the "Starglass" duology: feminism, identity, trauma, religion, heroism. And girls -- messy, complicated, real, and dynamic girls.
weddings
Whether you're the bride or a bridesmaid, you deserve to be happy with how you look on such a big day.
puns
statement jewelry
They’re bright, they’re shiny, and they just might hypnotize everyone you speak to while wearing them.
cotton swabs
As long as you don't poke yourself in the eye, you'll never regret making the switch.
josie maran
I love argan oil because it can be used for just about anything, but it’s not always the most practical product to tote around.
summer trends
Please help me justify my inevitable shopping spree in which I buy all these tops and dresses.
makeup
My picks for people who prefer a wider silhouette in their lip products.

Sometimes you need a little extra inspiration to get out there and sweat.

"From one email to the next, I went from 'unagented writer, dejectedly planning next book' to 'book deal!' which was probably one of the most bizarre experiences in my life."
