Zara's May 2013 lookbook goes a little something like this: statement denim, fresh hues (both bright and light), and pops of fun prints. Starting with denim, we're smitten with two circle skirts that are perfectly retro. And when it comes to color palette, shades of cobalt, orange, crisp white, and baby pink should cover all the style-setter bases. Floral prints and stripes can be found on suits, skirts, and trousers, while another batch of sleek oversize clutches maintain their status as the perfect day-to-night accessory. For all this — plus a closer look at the Zara's signature cool-girl styling in action — click on for the complete lookbook now.

The countdown to the unofficial start of Summer has begun! We're counting down the days until Memorial Day weekend, and in preparation for the start of beach season, we're giving our beach bag a bit of a makeover.

This Summer, make eco-friendly choices when it comes to your kids' beach toys. Check out eight of our favorite green finds — the beach, and your children, will thank you!
If you've never had the aperitif known as Lillet Rouge, you'll want to know that it's fruity, complex, and satisfying in its own right. But it shines even brighter when paired with sweet and spicy ginger beer. Add a wedge of grapefruit, and you've got an unbeatable combination of ease and excellence.
Bold name aside, this aperitif is light and refreshing. At 18 percent alcohol, Lillet Rouge is a natural fit for day drinking, as it'll offer a subtle buzz without knocking you off your feet.
The pattern remains the same for a lot of us — we hibernate during the Winter months and get ready to shed our cold-weather selves as the weather heats up. By the time Memorial Day comes around, we're looking for a few smart ways to shed a few pounds before it's time to don that bikini.
For other's, it's not as frantic: your cold-weather workout routine differs little from your bikini-ready one, and you're careful to balance comfort foods with fresh, low-calorie options all the time.
We want to know: where do you stand on your Summer weight-loss goals? Are you looking to shape up for Summer, or does your diet and exercise plan remain the same throughout the year?

If you've had BluePrint Juice's refreshing concoction of pineapple, green apple, and mint (P.A.M.) and thought to yourself how good it would be in a cocktail, you definitely have the makings of a bartender in you! BluePrint's P.A.M. has everything you want in a great Summer cocktail — a balanced flavor profile of sweet and tart with just a little something extra from the fresh mint. All it takes is one sip to be transported to a tropical beachside destination. Adding to its taste appeal are of course P.A.M.'s many nutritional benefits: made from raw, live juice, pineapple and mint are both known for their detoxing and debloating benefits.
First we set out to hack BluePrint's P.A.M. recipe for ourselves, which was a success in its own right. But after mixing it up with a little rum, we may have even improved on the original.
Fans of the mojito, learn how to make your new favorite Summer cocktail after the break!
