all the ouai | Ouai, the haircare line created by celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, released its first hair mask for those with fine to medium texture hair, and like the rest of Ouai’s product line, it’s ah-mazing. The mask is perfect for dry, breakage-prone or already damaged hair—issues exacerbated by dry winter air. A blend of shea butter, panthenol, hydrolyzed keratin and protein help restore, hydrate and soften hair to its full glory. And if you don’t believe me, just check out Ouai’s Instagram for the army of celebrities and influencers raving about it.
It’s hard to scroll through Instagram without coming across a 20-something influencer perfectly displaying a bottle of Avaline wine on her curated dining table. Founded by Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power, Avaline wines are organic, vegan-friendly, contain no artificial additives and have no added sugars, colors or concentrates. Who knew wine had artificial colors in the first place? Taking a mindful approach to wine, Avaline is changing the way we think about alcohol and raising the standard for wines everywhere.
Making hot chocolate just got a little more fun. Cocoa bombs have gone viral thanks to TikTok and are super easy to use. Just place the cocoa bomb (a hollow chocolate ball filled with marshmallows and cocoa powder) into a mug and pour steamed milk on top. After a few seconds, the bomb ‘explodes,’ releasing what’s inside. It’s fun for all ages and a delicious winter treat.
it takes two
If you’re in the market for an engagement ring this Valentine’s Day and want something less traditional than a solitaire but not as played out as a halo, two-stone engagement rings are quickly becoming a hot bridal trend. Whether you’re undecided about your center stone or want to combine your two favorite cuts, it’s the ideal way to create a striking, unique look. The trend was first introduced by model/actress Emily Ratajkowski’s pear- and square-cut diamond engagement ring and was quickly reinterpreted by many a jeweler, including famed New York jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb who created an impressive heart and emerald-cut diamond design.
