We envy those Brit babes for many reasons: jolie-laide, rockstar hair; a close proximity to Harry Styles; and of course, a penchant for trench coats. See, it's as if those gals from across the pond were born with an innate sense of easily throwing on said outerwear and heading out for tea.

Come to think of it, trench coats are every bit a necessity here in S.F. as they are in London (hello, Karl!). From the classic number that Audrey Hepburn famously donned as she kissed in the rain, to the new-wave trench that brings a pop of brightness to a foggy Friday, we've got you, well, covered.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, compact electric scooters and stylish electric bikes with ranges of at least 20 miles caught the spotlight. But price points of $1,500 or more for products still in prototype may brake riders' enthusiasm. Fortunately for frugal urban dwellers, there are cheap, petrol-free personal transportation alternatives, from electric scooters and bicycles to bike-share programs.
Electric Bikes. Electric bikes get riders to their destination with minimal effort and cost little to refuel. Charging is as simple as plugging the bicycle or removable battery into a wall outlet. Electric bikes come pre-built or as kits that transform a standard two-wheeler. "Bike commuting allows you to get to your destination without harming the environment, spending money on gas, or contributing to already congested roadways," asserts Melanie Lipton, editor of Bike Shop Hub's blog.

Electric Scooters. Electric scooters as adult transportation are sometimes referred to as "dirt scooters" because their large, inflatable tires easily traverse bumps, cracks, and all sorts of urban terrain. Like electric bikes, electric scooters propel riders forward with speeds reaching up to 25mph with a simple twist of the wrist. Note that range and power for both vehicle types ultimately depend on riders' weight (including backpacks and grocery bags); each model specifies maximum weight capacity.
We also added two non-motorized options for those who want to spend even less and reduce their carbon footprint even more (while staying in shape).

Legos have gotten a big boost in pop culture lately, thanks to "The Lego Movie." This delightful photo series is sure to build up your love of the colorful building blocks even more.
British photographer Andrew Whyte's "Legography" photo series features a Lego minifigure snapping shots of landmarks and scenic vistas. The photos offer a wonderful new way to see the world -- from the perspective of a one-and-a-half-inch toy.
"The idea originated after discovering a Lego camera accessory that fits in a minifigure's hand," Andrew tells the Good News. "I started placing it into the sort of snaps I'd be taking day-to-day, from abstract textures to seaside sunsets and urban views. Adding the character turned these random images into a cohesive series."
As a nighttime long-exposure photographer, Andrew has tons of high-tech equipment, but for his Lego series, he relied on his iPhone camera to get up close and personal with his little buddy. He takes a camera-toting minifigure with him wherever he goes, whether he's just wandering about his hometown of Portsmouth, England, or traveling abroad.
If it isn't already obvious, he's seen "The Lego Movie." "We -- my family, not my Lego collection -- saw 'The Lego Movie' on the opening weekend," he tell us. "It's amazing, so much fun and just beautifully produced."
We'd say the same thing about these photos!

There's no way around it: Makeup brushes are confusing. Are they necessary? (Yes.) Are fifteen necessary? (No.) Are they expensive? (Potentially!) Do they neeeeed to be an investment? (Nope!) And then there's the whole issue of trying to figure out which brush goes where-compounded by the fact that most aren't even labeled. MAC 217, for instance, is an excellent brush, but what the heck is it for? The vague number doesn't exactly spell it out.
But from watching the professionals to testing ourselves, we're confident we've uncovered the best brushes for every occasion and we're ready to tell you what's what. Before you know it, you'll be a bonafide brush-wielding beauty pro. Watch out, Pat McGrath!

- Mon, Feb 24, 2014 5:00 PM EST | CommentsOne of the most talked-about models of the year isn't Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen, or the gaggle of early 20-somethings who partied their way through recent Fashion Weeks around the globe; it's Jacky O'Shaughnessy, the 62-year-old face of American Apparel. Since the brand introduced the statuesque model on its Facebook page along with the phrase, "Sexy has no expiration date," she's become one of the most admired faces in the industry, and a member of an elite club of successful working models over 60. Here's a look at some of the more mature leading ladies in the business right now. —Sarah B. Weir, Yahoo Shine

The most compelling hair and makeup looks on the runway this week in Milan were a study in extremes, combining the city's quirky conceptualism with the neoclassic appeal of a bold red lip, a sharply winged eye, or a reworked braid. Here, beauty rules we're taking with us to Paris.
