4 healing balms you need in your life right now.
These bleak days of hiver test both our will to live and our skin’s ability to stay hydrated. And much like how a generous pour of Okanagan Pinot can top up our emotional reservoir, these waxy balms restore and seal in lost moisture. Soapwalla founder Rachel Winard’s The Balm, which she calls a “miracle product,” took hundreds of formula tweaks and three years to fine-tune. The jellylike moisturizer reduces redness and soothes damaged tissue so your skin won’t look like Jon Snow’s when he’s coming back from beyond the Wall. “Infusions of calendula, arnica and St. John’s wort work synergistically to reduce swelling and calm redness,” says Winard.

Guess who Amber Tamblyn ran into at the Women's March this Saturday? (Other than hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets to express their opposition to the new Trump administration).
Not one, but two of her "sisters" from the Travelling Pants franchise!
First, Tamblyn bumped into America Ferrera in Washington.
And then, via some kind of miracle of teleportation (seriously, how) Tamblyn was in New York, where she marched with "Sister 2", aka Blake Lively.
As for sister #3, aka Alexis Bledel: She's currently filming in Canada at the moment, so hold the conspiracy theories.
In these troubled and uncertain times, we all need to develop healthy ways to process the madness we see unfolding around us...and for the Duchess of Cambridge, that apparently involves art therapy.
Prince William has previously mentioned his wife's love of adult colouring books, so it should come as no surprise to see Kate made a beeline for the craft table at an event in England today.
With nary a though for her brand new Hobbs suit, Kate grabbed a paint brush and drew her feelings alongside a group of children doing the same.
PS. Here's a full length look at what Kate wore today to visit a children's hospice.
City of stars...looks like the Hollywood gods are smiling upon Lalaland this Oscar season! Also: Meryl Streep.
The nominations are rolling in as we type, and it's looking like a big day for everyone's favourite Ryan Gosling / Emma Stone fronted musical. With 14 nominations, it's the most nominated musical of all time (sorry Mary Poppins).
Speaking of most nominations...Meryl Streep just got a nod for her work in Florence Foster Jenkins, which just made her the most nominated person in Academy Award history.
Other notable nominations:
Canada's Denis Villeneuve as best director for Arrival!
Lion is getting an unexpected amount of love—best picture, best supporting actor and actress for Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. (Remember when we interviewed Rooney Mara about her experience on the film?)
