I’ve never really liked carrot cake. The concept of putting a relatively healthy vegetable inside a dessert just seems like a trick to get you to eat more vegetables. Add on to the fact that many versions contain raisins and the entire concept comes across as a cruel joke. However, as my tastes have matured, I’ve grown to appreciate the subtle sweet flavor of this Cook’s Illustrated recipe, combined with a great tangy frosting. And since I’ve never been a fan of nuts in my desserts, I decided to decorate with edible flowers instead.

Sure, it would be great to stay in celebration mode forever, but eventually you have to hit the reset button on your life. Here, 10 easy ways to do it.
1. Be Radiant
If you buy only one new skin-care product during the long, dry winter months, make it a luminosity- enhancing serum, such as Kypris Beauty Elixir III Prismatic Array ($150). It’s chock-full of antioxidants like vitamin C, which brings tired, dull complexions into the light, and is gentle enough for those who have sensitive skin.
2. Boost Your Lashes
For an instant eye-brightener, reach for a tube of Maybelline New York The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara ($10). Its name is as long as its staying power but more important is its brush—a fan-shaped, short-bristled wonder—that ensures curled, are-they-real-or-not? lashes with every swipe.
3. Get Fuller Hair
Nutrafol ($88), a blend of marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E, is the buzziest hair-growth supplement around. Riawna Capri, who tends to the manes of some of Hollywood’s A-list (Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez), swears by it. “I have seen a huge difference with my clients after taking it for three months,” says Capri. “Their hair is so much thicker, especially around the hairline.”
4. Shop Wisely
Lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop Clean Beauty is packed with advice on how to choose the right beauty products and how to eat better as well as clean-living tips like”Energy, enthusiasm, and glowing skin do take you pretty far, actually.” Amen to that.
5. Replace Your Lipstick
Red lip color will wake up your face in a flash. Our pick: Nars Velvet Lip Glide in Mineshaft ($26). This poppy shade is flattering on most skin tones, and it goes on like a dream, leaving behind rich, high-impact color that wears evenly and keeps lips soft all day long.
6. Find Your Zen
Get an Apple Watch for the holidays? Go launch its built-in Breathe app. “Wait,” you may be thinking, “I don’t need an app to tell me how to breathe.” And you would be right, but it does much more than that: It blocks out time for you to meditate, which studies have shown can significantly reduce stress and anxiety in just minutes. For non-Watch-havers, the Headspace app (from $6.24 per month) is a good option.
7. Whiten Your Smile
Already a devotee of Crest Whitestrips? The newest version, Crest Whitestrips With Light ($100), is souped-up thanks to the addition of blue-light technology, which works in conjunction with the strips you know and love to accelerate the whitening effect.
8. Exercise Anytime, Anywhere
You can get a serious workout with the Cody app (classes from $10), if you have access to a screen (yes, your phone counts). Big-time trainers (Ashley Galvin, Jacquelyn Umof, Dylan Werner) coach you through yoga, Pilates, HIIT, and barre classes streamed to you, on your schedule.
9. Repair Your Hair
Restore overworked strands to peak condition with b3 Demi Permanent Conditioner. This in- salon treatment combines the deep hydration of a mask with the rejuvenating qualities of a bond builder, leaving hair stronger and softer for up to 12 shampoos (from $45).
10. Self-Tan Smarter
Tan-Luxe takes the guesswork—and the smell—out of at-home tanning. Add a few drops of The Face ($50) or The Body ($60) to your moisturizer or body lotion of choice, and smooth evenly on your skin. In a few hours you’ll develop a natural, streak-free glow (without staining your sheets or clothing). Want deeper color? Use more drops. Simple.

A big hug to the great Leonardo di Caprio, also like me of Italian origin, with honor and pride, I rejoice in this success
When Leonardo Di Caprio accepted his Oscar for Best Actor Sunday night for “The Revenant,” he took the opportunity to highlight an inconvenient truth.
“Making ‘The Revenant’ was about man’s relationship to the natural world,” he said in his acceptance speech. “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”
As DiCaprio pointed out, 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. The average global temperature over land and sea was 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.90 Celsius) above the 20th century average — 0.29 F (0.16 C) hotter than the previous record set in 2014.
“Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow,” DiCaprio said.
As The Washington Post reported, the actor’s speech comes on the heals of a recent studywhich suggests climate change may be worse than we thought. The report found that humanity must keep our emissions of carbon dioxide to less than 1,000 billion tons if we’re to have a good chance of keep global warming below the widely accepted limit of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
This is not the first time DiCaprio has taken a stand on climate change. In December, he addressed mayors from around the world during the Paris climate talks, calling for countries to divest from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, The New York Times reported.
“Now to get there, we must act. We must finally leave behind the inefficient technologies of another century and the business models that they have created,” he said, according to the Times.
In January, DiCaprio received an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, for his foundation, which focuses on climate change and protecting the world’s wildlife and ecosystems.

I’m loving these easy summer style lookbook photos from Intermix… which I think are all on sale at the moment. I was going to PIN them all for style inspo and thought I’d share here instead. Just a few relaxed looks I want to recreate with my own wardrobe to get that casual-cool summer vibe I’m loving right now.
