Readers raved about this lip balm in the post on beauty empties (as in, products they actually finish), but I wasn’t sure I needed another tinted lip balm. I gave it a try based on how much the readers love it, and now I love it as well. I have the berry/glow color.

This top can be the perfect layer beneath cardigans and blazers — and it’s super affordable when it goes on sale.
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This dress is gorgeous, and for once I love it on the plus size model more than the smaller model.

This tote looks lovely because it’s a great size (15″ x 5.5″ x 12.75″) and I like the little details like the red piping.

There are a million sandals out there with a kind of schlubby look, or a glam, disco-diva look on the other end, but if you just want a slight heel to wear with shorts for a put-together weekend look, I think this is your perfect shoe.
