Remember when we were all like "LOL global warming rules!" last month? Now, we're paying for it. The temperatures in New York are practically negative 45 degrees and the wind is strong enough to provide a free face peel while walking down the block. Needless to say, prepping for a night out has become the ultimate struggle.
After 28 wonderfully aesthetic years at American Vogue, everyone's beloved redheaded fashion icon is taking one step back from the tall white ivory tower - settling into a more part-time, special projects based roll as Creative-Director-at-Large.
Producing a seasonally appropriate minimum of four photoshoots per year, she'll have plenty of room to pursue outside campaigns. And with a portfolio to kill for, as well as at least three or four good industry contacts, we're not too worried for her next step. Especially since word is she's already on board for a perfume campaign with Comme des Garcons, and a coffee table book with Phaidon.
Though the adjustment to the slower paced life will be hard, life beyond Vogue is most definitely worth living for. If only to indulge in more furry face time with these kitties. Because really, who wouldn't trade fashion for felines?

Athleisure is the coolest style trend for the busy city woman who runs from boxing to meetings to drinks. How to put together a knockout look? Hannah Bronfman, of HBFIT, has teamed up with Bloglovin' to curate a shop of her favorite fashion and beauty picks to mix and match for "elevated athleisure" looks. (Don't be basic.)
The key is to pair authentic fitness wear with high-quality designer toppings—sweaters, outerwear, accessories—while keeping your hair and makeup relaxed and groomed. Add in an energetic color, like electric blue, for a punch in contrast with athletic black and grey. Shop Hannah's picks, and shop our GofG picks here as well.
Looking for an excuse to visit some of the city's hottest restaurants without breaking your budget? Look no further than NYC Restaurant Week. From January 18th to February 5th, participating restaurants will be featuring three course prix fixe menus for lunch ($25) and dinner ($38). Book your reservations on OpenTable before they fill up!
All liquids all the time is not exactly our thing. After one day of straight up juicing, our canines are chomping at the bit ready to rip up just about anything. Still, seeing as it's an Instagrammed wellness-loving world, and we're just living in it, we figured we'd give Juice Press and their new Clean Eating Plan the old New Years try.
It's a five day curated cleanse stocked with plenty of solid foods for all you chewers out there. We're talking Marinated Kale Salads, Butternut Squash Soups, the ever delicious Get Rich Quick Sushi, and juices sprinkled in between. After all, it's not called Juice Press for no reason.
Of course, there are many things to expect when starting a cleanse or diet. The ups, the downs. Take note and prepare yourself for the side effects of your newfound nutritional high - the deep spiral into the life of an amateur wellness expert. Just try not to get too carried away with the kale.

While we may not completely back the sentiment - hey, we love a good party - No More Parties in L.A. is a tune we can most certainly get behind.
Take note of our five favorite, most incontrovertibly Kanye lyrics below, and settle in for a reminder as to why such a ridiculous human being as Yeezy has been able to stick around for so long.
Hey baby you forgot your Ray BansAnd my sheets still orange from your spray tan
A backpack nigga with luxury taste budsAnd the Louis Vuitton store, got all of my pay stubs
My psychiatrist got kids that I inspired
Every agent I know know I hate agentsI'm too black, I'm too vocal, I'm too flagrant
Pink fur got Nori dressing like Cam, thank God for meWhole family gettin' money, thank God for E!
