Fur Your Consideration: #MakeFurHistory

According to meteorological predictions, the polar vortex is destined to strike once again this winter, making the desire necessity to keep warm more pronounced than ever. While technological advances in the fashion world have produced efficient garments designed to trap heat (UNIQLO’s popular Heattech is one noteworthy example), most individuals continue to gravitate towards more traditional materials like fur despite their widely advertised ecological detriment. With New Year’s around the corner, LUSH Cosmetics is launching a new campaign to inspire customers to make some early resolutions.

How To Dress For Thanksgiving Based on Your Favorite Feast Day Entrée

While every family does their feast a little differently, traditional Thanksgiving staples are pretty run-of-the-mill. With so many tasty ingredients, it’s hard to choose the one to top our favorites list, but let’s face it, we all have “that one dish” from which we can’t help but take seconds (even if when we’re bursting at the seams).

Given that people often say that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they eat, we’ve compiled a specially-themed Thanksgiving style guide catered to your taste preferences – literally. Obviously, we know that a “cranberry sauce coveteur” would never be caught dead in a “mashed potato sucker’s” sweater!
