We've teamed up with Philips Sonicare to share functional (yet beautiful!) products that'll make your bathroom feel like a brand-new space—without spending a fortune. We're starting by upgrading our toothbrush to the new Philips One by Sonicare. It not only comes in four very cute colors, but it's battery-operated and super portable, thanks to a sleek carrying case you can take just about anywhere.


For a space that gets used multiple times a day, my bathroom isn't a place I think about much, in terms of style and design. On the other hand, I dream about redecorating my living room on a weekly (if not hourly) basis.

17 Last-Minute Thanksgiving Recipes for When Life Gets in the Way

I am the queen of procrastinating. Some call it a bad habit; I call it efficient. This has applied to many corners of my life throughout the years, from writing term papers to filing my taxes, but none so much as in the kitchen.

I am the queen of procrastinating. Some call it a bad habit; I call it efficient. This has applied to many corners of my life throughout the years, from writing term papers to filing my taxes, but none so much as in the kitchen.

Both work and life are hectic enough as it is to give any meal of the day much forethought (cut to me eating shells and cheddar from a box). Throw in all the curveballs of 2020 and, yep, I'm leaving just about everything down to the last minute. And seeing as I'll likely be spending this Thanksgiving solo, I'm pretty sure I'll let any Turkey Day preparations—the planning, the shopping, the cooking—come down to the wire.

How to Store Butternut Squash So it Lasts & Lasts (& Lasts)

Even though butternut squash is most closely associated with crisp, cool weather and cozy dishes (like this hearty lamb stew, for starters), it’s actually available all year round.

Even though butternut squash is most closely associated with crisp, cool weather and cozy dishes (like this hearty lamb stew, for starters), it's actually available all year round.

"Despite what the name might suggest," writes former Food52 editor Lindsay-Jean Hard, "winter squash doesn't grow in the winter. The name actually refers to the fact that most varieties can be stored and used throughout the winter." All to say, it lasts a very long time. How long, exactly? Well, that depends on where (and how) you keep it.

The One Spot in Your Home You’re Definitely Forgetting to Clean

Growing up, I absolutely loathed how clean and tidy our house was at all times. OK, I didn’t hate that it was clean, but the fact that my mom always insisted that dishes were cleaned the second they hit the sink, and bedsheets and pillows tucked and fl…

Growing up, I absolutely loathed how clean and tidy our house was at all times. OK, I didn't hate that it was clean, but the fact that my mom always insisted that dishes were cleaned the second they hit the sink, and bedsheets and pillows tucked and fluffed before the day even got going.

I found it endlessly annoying as a kid to live in what one person close to me once described as a "model home"—sparkling kitchen counters and all. But now, as a result, I can't imagine living anywhere even remotely disorganized (have you met my kitchen storage MVP yet?) or messy (my BFF is a purple vacuum).

When I'm feeling stressed or overwhelmed, there's a little trick I sometimes use that makes me relax in a near instant: turn on an episode of Barefoot Contessa starring Ina Garten, a cookbook author, lover of all things Paris, and of course, the Hamptons' very best host.

I'm not sure if it's the easy listening vibes of the show's opening theme song or Ina's serene, sprawling estate (that kitchen! those gardens!), but it's hard not to feel ultra-calm as you watch her effortlessly cook through a handful of recipes—whether she's setting up a laid-back lunch for company or preparing a special meal for none other than Jeffrey himself. (How easy was that, right?)
