Stay Home Because You're Well Day!

News of the Day:

+ Instagram just revealed which celebrities got the most likes on the app this year. Here are the top five:

Naturally, Queen Bey came in at No. 1 with her iconic pregnancy announcement.

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo took second place with an update on his newborn daughter, Alana Martina, earlier this month.

One of the most talked about posts of the year came by way of a heartfelt thank you from Selena Gomez to best friend Francia Raisa, who saved the pop star’s life with a kidney donation this year.

Beyoncé made yet another appearance on the top five list with this unforgettable photo of her twins, Rumi and Sir Carter.

Ronaldo appears on our list once again with a sweet post dedicated to the “two new loves of [his] life,” twins he had via a surrogate.

+ Vegans, rejoice! After a successful trial run in select locations, Pizza Hut will now offer dairy-free Violife cheese in stores across the U.K. Adding the new "cheese" to your pie costs an extra £1, a small price to pay for the big freedom of being able to order a pizza at a major chain instead of relying on specialty restaurants. Right now, the option is only for U.K. residents, but with a bit of luck, the already-promising demand will expand that reach.

+ Sam Smith has released a video for "One Last Song" from his latest album, The Thrill of It All. The one-shot video, directed by Joe Connor, follows Smith through various passageways in London’s opulent Palladium theatre, singing the tune as he breezes past feather-clad dancers, paparazzi, and more. Check it out, below!

+ Pop-up season is in full swing, and two of the best are happening this week! First, Personnel is hosting the Hometown Heroines designer spotlight this Thursday, November 30, from 6pm to 8pm, where guests can hang with designers from some of the best women-run labels in New York City (Dusen Dusen, Ilana Kohn, Loup, and more), sip cocktails, and enjoy complimentary aura readings. Check out the event page for more info.

Then, the GIVE holiday sale at the VEDA showroom runs December 1 through 3 and features work and appearances by womenswear designers like VEDA, Nikki Chasin, and Merica Lee to name a few. More details here.

+ Looking to give your daily makeup that extra pop? Stila just released a line of shimmering liquid eyeshadows in six new shades guaranteed to turn heads at any holiday party. The Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows are available at Ulta for $24. Grab them here.

Deal of the Day:

Much-loved fashion label Creatures of Comfort is hosting its annual Holiday Bazaar event, both online and in their New York and Los Angeles locations, with 20-plus selected artisans selling their work. New Yorkers, pop into the flagship store on Mulberry Street on December 7 from 6pm to 9pm for a cocktail launch party and a chance to chat with the featured artists. For those in L.A., stop by for a glass of wine and preview the work.
