I took a stroll through one of our friendly neighborhood malls this past weekend - something I don't do very often since I'm addicted to indie boutiques - and felt like I had been transported 20 years in the past. The H&M looked like the wardrobe trailer from the first season of Friends and floral reigned supreme. I knew '90s was trending, but had no idea how hard people were rocking the look.

A new addition to the growing list of attractions filling up lunch schedules comes courtesy of Greenstreet - formerly Houston Pavilions. The three-block "shopping, dining and entertainment destination" will now play hosts to fashion trucks as part of their weekday events calendar.

New York and Los Angeles may have a lock on the fashion industry in America, but they do not have the monopoly on designers (or fashion staples for that matter).

If you are one of the helpless victims of this year's flu--or even just a really bad case of seasonal allergies--chances are you've found yourself bedridden in the last few months. And because there are only so many syndicated episodes of Parks and Recreation one can watch, you may have found yourself extremely -- even terminally -- bored during your illness and recovery.
You also probably found yourself, after a day or two, to be pretty freaking gross looking. While there is no reason to embark upon a full, Academy Awards-level grooming during a bout of the flu, there is something to be said about using that "lost time" to make you feel better by doing small, no-to-low effort things that may even help you look a little better.

Summer equals sunscreen. If you live in Houston, and sunscreen isn't a 365-day-a-year ritual, you should revisit the idea. Immediately. Clothes, hats, scarves, and sunglasses are great barriers to the sun's harmful rays, but your skin needs protection all the time, guys.

Each year, drugstores and beauty counters roll out new, SPF-laden products for us to play with, and no release is more exciting than Sephora's annual Summer "Sun Safety" Kit.

Thus far, we have no word on a kit for 2014; in the meantime, let's take a look at the latest buzz on how to protect your skin this summer.More »
