So few celebrities keep it real on Instagram. Photography has been a hobby of mine since college, so when Instagram debuted in 2010, I became an immediate and passionate convert. The platform turned my smartphone into a creative tool, and I found that taking and posting pictures actually helped me slowdown and tune in to my surroundings. But as Instagram’s popularity exploded, my relationship with it began to shift. Rather than inspiring me, scrolling through it—and viewing the impossibly fabulous lives of friends and strangers—made me tense up. Rationally, I knew that everyone’s feeds were curated and filtered (after all, mine was too). Nonetheless, I systematically unfollowed accounts that made me feel “less than,” which, of course, meant I nixed almost all the influencers and celebrities in my feed. Except for one:…

Meet… ANTHEA LEVI Assistant Editor My ideal summer Friday: A leisurely breakfast. Pilates class. A nap.Wine outdoors with friends. Bed by 11. A beauty hack I swear by: After curling my lashes, I apply a bit of Vaseline. Itmakes them look “done”—and no smudging! Best advice I ever got: You talk toyourself more than anyone else. Make sure you’re saying the right things. My favorite no-cook meal: Zoodles topped withahearty spoonful (or three) of pesto, plus shaved Parmesan and cracked pepper on top. WHO WE’RE FOLLOWING ON INSTA @thecrunchyradish “I love dietitian Miranda Hammer’s veggie-forward feed. If flax pancakes and salmon grain bowls are your thing, you’ll probably love her account too.” —Kathleen Mulpeter, senior digital editor @kinkysweat “Fitness instructor and trainer Alicia Archer is a master of flexibility. Seriously, she takes contorting her body to the next level. She’s #goals for…

Now in Bloom Go on, stop and smell the roses! From scrubs to toners, rose-infused and-scented products are having a major moment. The nostalgic aroma is perfect for this time of year and will leave you feeling pretty and feminine. Smell the bouquet every day with these sophisticated and soothing floral finds. SIP ON THIS Orange Wine See ya, rosé—there’s a new It drink of summer. “Orange wine is essentially a white wine made like a red wine,” says Lauren Friel, consulting wine director at Dirt Candy, a vegetarian hot spot in New York City. “In modern white-winemaking, the grape juice is separated from the skins after pressing, while the juice in red-wine-making is usually left in contact with the skins for a few days, weeks, or months.” Orange wine (which is made from…

kids’ summer safety

First Aid for the Win Whether they’re playing at picnics or digging up shells on the beach, kids are sure to get cuts and scrapes, so it pays to have a first aid kit around. One we love: Swiss Safe’s 120-Piece First Aid Kit ($28; amazon.com) is stocked with essentials like an instant ice pack and antiseptic wipes. Sound the (Swim) Alarm Children need to be watched around pools at all times. To be sure they never swim solo, install an alarm—like the PoolGuard PGRM-2 ($280; amazon.com)—in your home pool. The alarm goes off as soon as one enters the pool, so you’ll know ASAP if anyone’s wading sans supervision. Travel Smart Going abroad? Bring an Allergy Translation Card ($8 per card per language; allergytranslation.com) to help communicate what your kids can’t eat at restaurants.…

FACE REBOOT “I use Biologique Recherce Lotion P50. It’s like a toner. You use it after you wash your face but before you put your serums on. It feels like your skin’s burning…but then you feel beautiful.” GOOD MORNING “My Vitamix is essential. I make my Bulletproof coffee in it—I whip it up, and then it’s like a latte. We also make broccoli soup, and fresh tomatillo salsa, and this amazing saag sort of Indian [dish] with spinach and mustard greens.” ALL DRESSED UP “Natalie Martin Collection dresses are so easy in the summer. My 5-year-old daughter calls these ‘Mr. Nightgowns’ because if I’m out all day, I’ll come home and throw one on—and she knows that when Mr. Nightgown comes on, it’s bedtime soon.” SWEAT IT OUT “I love Varley and Outdoor Voices for workout gear—especially…
