"I take a bath at least once a week," Lauren tells People of her Laguna Beach home, where she can smell the salt water from the ocean. "I wanted a romantic feeling in my bathroom."
Bubble baths are Serena's preferred way to relax in her favorite room when she's not hard at work on the tennis court. "I designed the bay windows around the tub to accentuate [the bathroom]," Serena says. "It really makes the room."
Even if you don't live near the ocean, you can unwind with these relaxing and romantic products:

In a girl's life, there are a select few occasions when it's considered completely appropriate to go all out with a truly spectacular dress. Her wedding day comes to mind, of course, and maybe her Sweet 16. Prom night, however, is certainly at the tip-top of that short list of special events.

- Wed, Apr 9, 2014 5:15 PM EDT | CommentsWe all know fashion is cyclical, but who would have thought '90s fads like chokers and Hypercolor shirts would return so soon?

Poor jellybeans and chocolate rabbits-somehow, they've become the also-rans of the spring candy season. Unlike the almighty Peeps, no one argues about whether it's best to eat them fresh, stale or microwaved. No one sponsors diorama contests around them, and their merchandise is considerably less cute (seriously, just look at this Peeps dog plush toy!). For whatever reason, the 60+-year-old Peeps have quite the cult following-and the goods to prove it. Check out these clever iterations, even if you don't like the real thing.

It seems everyone we meet has a different mascara they swear by. Yes, some cult favorites pop up time and time again, but we're always intrigued by the multitude of mascaras mentioned by makeup artists, models, and celebs alike. So, why are some lash enhancers cast aside by one person, yet totally beloved by another? It's because, just like hair texture or skin type, the state of your lashes is unique to you. Unfortunately, mascara marketers don't use a problem-based approach to pedaling their products. So, it's not easy to tell which lash enhancer would best benefit your particular lash needs. To get to the bottom of it, we called in makeup artist Elisa Flowers. She's coated the lashes of many a top model and A-list celeb in her day, so we knew she'd have some insight into how to find the right mascara for every type of lash - from short to straight. Click on through to discover your ultimate mascara match.
