Right now, I’m sitting in my apartment and working from the couch. The ceiling fan is spinning at top speed. The box fan is just a few feet away. I’m doing okay…for now. Those weeks before the official start of summer are particularly agonizing because one day could feel like a literal furnace while the next is rainy and cold. When do I set up the air conditioners? At this point, who knows?! Normally, my skincare routine gets stuck in a rut when this happens too. I know sunscreen is always a must, but what about my face oil and the rare makeup moment? Right now, the thought...

Most summers, we’re typically a selfie away from an Instagram-worthy moment: Venture outside with a straw hat, and boom. Drive to the beach and spend the day watching the waves roll in — done. Plan a rooftop party with your closest friends (and your friends' friends and their friends), and you have an entire album of mementos. But these days, with social-distancing guidelines implemented in most cities, finding fun moments will require a bit more creativity (and even with some parts of the country reopening, it's understandable if you were still cautious about social gatherings). To help you find inspiration, Unbothered has partnered up with Target to round up 14 standout beauty and fashion items that promise to liven up any photo opp, whether it's from your bedroom or your backyard. There are dresses rich in bold hues, a head scarf in a fierce print, and a matte lipstick that packs a punch. And we included sunscreen in the mix, because we both know the rumor isn’t completely true — Black can crack. Shop our favorite pieces, ahead.Like what you see?

If you're sticking to a keto diet, bagels can be tough because of their high carbohydrate content. Well, not anymore. We found eight bagels that all have less than 10 grams of net carbs per serving, and they're all available on Amazon! If you crave something savory, go for an everything bagel with cream cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes, and capers. And, if you're feeling sweet, go for a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese and raspberries. It's kind of dreamy, and making me crave a bagel right about now. So, get shopping, before I beat you to it! Related: This Cheesy Bagel Is So Low-Carb, We're Feeling a Little Emotional About It
