If you need even more Best Of Beauty 2017 content to get your new year off to a good start, check out Priya’s here.

I loved this post from Into the Gloss about an actual French woman’s beauty regimen.

The Rise & Fall of the Basic Bitch: “In a lot of ways, it’s internalized misogyny given a name. It is the phrase ‘I’m not like other girls,’ packaged as an insult.”

The No-Win Conundrum Of The Golden Globes’ #MeToo Red Carpet

I’m absolutely in love with Greta Garbo’s bedroom. It appeals to my current obsession with rose-hued everything.

If you’ve got some time over the weekend, take a peek at goop’s Detox Shopping Guide. There are some admittedly wonderful products on here, but unfortunately I’m not sure I can say the same about the session with a “kitchen healer”, the colon hydrotherapy, or the coffee enema.

You Can’t Have Self-Love Without Self-Respect: “Self-respect is helping someone in need when no one is there to witness it. Self-respect is enjoying the acquisition of knowledge, without others having to know that you know it. Self-respect is leaving the party when you’re tired, instead of staying up for everyone else.”
A wonderfully (terribly?) relateable piece about the shame of not having money and the stupid things we do to avoid feeling it.

And secondly, it’s a problem for consumers, who are not being protected from unfair trading, who want to shop ethically and avoid the fur trade.”
