Sponsored Post: Throw A Better-Than-A-Picnic Picnic With The Better-Than-A-Hotdog Hotdog

You can't have a great picnic without great food. For your end-of-summer outing, look for products that are portable, easy to serve and eat, and that have healthy ingredients. Hebrew National is a great choice for hotdogs because of their simple ingredients - like butcher quality cuts of beef with no fillers, by-products, artificial flavors or colors. To make sure your picnic fare is grilled perfectly every time, follow these four quick steps: 1. Start clean! Scrape the grill grates clean between each use. 2. Adjust the grates. Food cooked too close to the coals might burn before it's cooked through. 3. Separate. Raw and cooked meat should always be on separate plates. 4. Avoid flare-ups. Trim away fat and drain off high-fat marinades to avoid flames flaring up. For tips on grilling a great hotdog, visit HebrewNational.com.

Shop 8 Of Our Favorite Summer Outfits – Like Stepping Into Our Fantasy Closet

Nobody gets more excited about seasonal clothes than us. So we've partnered with National Jean company and The Shoe Box to create a little boutique filled with outfits we love. You can click the items to see them individually, or shop the whole boutique here. We kind of want everything. 1. Park-Bench Picnic For a relaxed picnic (at which you still want to look really good), we love this corset-detail floral dress ($110) with a big leather bag ($595) and luxe, slightly bohemian Delman sandals ($226). A bohemian bracelet ($50) is all the jewelry you need. 2. Best-Dressed Girl at the Dive Bar For a slightly-rowdy night out, try a slouchy vest($56) and printed scarf ($148) over the season-standout J. Brand skinny cargo pant ($230). A tough pair of wedges ($140) adds a good dose of height without looking too girly for a dive-y beer bar. 3. Wednesday Pick-Me-Up Add a dose of '70s style glamor to your workweek with a this Winter Kate cardigan ($145) over a pair of J Brand wide-leg jeans ($139). This neutral platform pump ($168) is walkable enough to qualify as workwear, and stackable gold rings ($145 for 7) tie the retro-inspired look together. 4. Dinner Out, Spontaneous Cocktails This two-tone dress ($88) is easy to wear a billion ways, and affordable to boot. We'd pair it with comfortable Modern Vintage sandals ($158) and minimal jewelry for a night out: The stackable rings ($55) and stud earrings ($30) below add just the right amount of shine. 5. Sunday Errands Stay comfy but pulled-together for brunch and errand-running: Layer an on-trend sailor-striped tank ($42) over a pair of leggings ($55) and under a light, flow-y cardigan ($96). Add patent Bloch flats ($190) instead of flip-flops for a polished-casual vibe. 6. Laid-Back Family Dinner A sleeveless button-down shirt ($98) paired with a swingy mini skirt ($54) is fun but not too formal; add super versatile braided flat sandals from Tapeet ($350) and textured gold hoops ($72) for dinner with the family, or high wedges and a cocktail ring for a night out. 7. Spring-Style Day-to-Night We love this Gypsy 05 dress ($138) for its easy shape and summer-y color. Pair it with flat sandals, or for an edgier look, throw on a long cardigan ($74) and belt the ensemble with this Joes Jeans chain belt ($68). Finish the look with one of our favorite wedges of the season, from Cynthia Vincent ($405). 8. Casual Friday at Work For a casual day at the office, start with a summer-white blazer ($84) and a proper pair of metallic Michael Kors flats ($185). Dress down the combination with Genetic Denim's distressed skinny jean ($196) and a plain white tee; an intricate gold necklace ($72) adds a nice dose of femininity.

7 Fashion Fixers That Are Small Enough To Carry In Your Clutch

Between sweaty commutes and one-bag weekend jaunts, you might start to fret about how to keep all your clothes in tip-top shape. But don't. Today on Better.tv, we're showing you seven quick fixers that you can carry just about anywhere. Save Sweaty Clothes Prevent those annoying underarm sweat marks altogether with Garment Guard Clothing Protectors ($10.95 for 5 pairs) - just stick the cotton discs on the inside of your top, and throw them out when the day is over. If you do end up with a sweaty shirt, freshen it up with Tide Swash Fresh It Up ($5.99), which is affordable enough to stash at the office, at home, and in the car. And when sweat stains (or seriously any other kind of stain at all) creep onto your clothes, grab a Madame Paulette Professional Stain Removal Kit ($12.50) - it has detailed instructions about how to get rid of almost any spot. Just Look Sharper If your clothes need a quick pick-me-up, Gal Pal has you covered: Their Deodorant Remover pads ($8.99) and Lint Remover Mitts ($10.50) are easy to use, and simple to toss in your purse. Just run one over fabric to remove white marks and stray fibers. To rid yourself of wrinkles without a steamer, simply spray Tide Swash Smooth It Out ($5.99) and tug on fabric - you can even do it while a skirt is on your body. And if your beach diet worked a little too well (or not at all), add or remove inches from your favorite jeans with Bristols 6's Adjust-A-Button ($18), a simple pin that serves as an extra button for your denim.

SHEfinds On The Today Show: Where To Get The Eco- and Wallet-Friendly Beauty Buys We Showed You This Morning

This morning on The Today Show, we showed you six decidedly un-crunchy eco-friendly beauty finds. They're more natural and more sustainable than your average cosmetics, but just as glamorous - and sometimes even more affordable. Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy Wash Your Face With Something Natural Green your morning skin routine with Melvita Cleansing Foam ($19) and Yves Rocher Wake-Up Lotion ($16) - they're both over 95% natural, with lots of ingredients you'll be able to pronounce: Melvita's Cleansing Foam has aniseed and olive to cleanse and even out your complexion, while the Wake-Up Lotion combines peppermint, witch hazel, and aloe vera to revive tired morning skin. Feed Your Hair Real Nutrients Shampoo with Kiss My Face Miss Treated Shampoo ($8.29), with organic herbs and extracts, plus essential oils that clean hair without drying it out - plus, it smells just like a treatment room at a fancy spa. Follow up with Emmet Cooper HAIRCARE Repair Masque ($12), a deep conditioner that uses avocado oil and milk proteins. Don't Eat Paraben-Laden Lip Gloss NVEY ECO makes gorgeous lip glosses ($24) that are 100% organic, so you don't have to worry about eating toxins every time you re-apply. For a skin-friendly pop of color, try Physicians Formula Organic Wear 2-in-1 Bronzer & Blush ($13.95): their Eco-Olive complex helps shield skin from the environment, plus the packaging is eco-friendly, with 93% less plastic than similar compacts. For more green inspiration, check out our guides to Eco-Friendly Shopping and Vegan Shoes and Handbags.

Four Spring Trends You Can Afford: Fashion And Beauty For Your Budget

Today on Better.tv, we're showing you four of our favorite spring trends - and how you can snag them on a budget. Sparkly Embellished Tees The best part about these feminine tees is that you don't have to worry about wearing a necklace - perfect for warmer weather, when you'd rather not pile on layers of chains. For all-out glamor, try this simple tee ($93.99) covered in matte white sequins. For a more low-key, lower-budget option, try Liz Lange's (non-maternity) tee ($49.90), which we'd wear with jeans on the weekend, or as a lunchtime cover-up on trips to the beach. Pastel Eyes That Pop Give your dark winter colors a vacation, and switch to lighter, brighter pastels for spring; By Lauren Luke palettes ($37) have all the colors you need to create the perfect pastel eye, plus the lips and cheeks to go with it. If all you need is the eyeshadow, try Maybelline's four-color Eye Studio palettes ($8.49) for a budget pastel fix. Walkable Wedge Shoes Wedges are easier to walk in than sky-high heels, and they're back in stores this spring, in lots of brights and neutrals to complement warm-weather clothes. We love these two yellow pairs: Chie Mihara's suede wedges ($390) are luxe but substantial, and Old Navy's faux leather version ($29.50) is a good way to try a bright shoe without an expensive commitment. Easy At-Home Beauty Any way you look at it, at-home beauty treatments are less expensive than multiple spa visits. emerginC skin care ($50-$150) makes spa-quality skin treatments packed with vitamins and natural ingredients to keep skin glowing. Garnier's skin care line ($5-$20) looks and feels luxe, too, but at drugstore prices (and we love their moisturizers). Sign up for our newsletter and get finds like these delivered right to your inbox, or browse our Maxi Dresses or Summer Dresses guides for more seasonal finds.

Sponsored Post: Upgrade Your Day AND Night Wardrobes With Rent The Runway

By now you may have heard of Rent the Runway, a site that lets you rent dresses (and very soon, jewelry too) for about 10% of their actual price. This can be a lifesaver if you have, say, a fancy wedding, but it can also provide some welcome and not-too-pricey respite from a wardrobe that's starting to bore you. Below, we've taken five Rent the Runway dresses, and shown you how to wear them to work on Thursday, then out Friday night, using pieces you probably already have in your closet. Doo.Ri ruffle-front dress ($100 rental, $850 retail) Day: Add a blazer ($168) and a simple pendant necklace ($78) for a feminine office look. Night: Sexy, strappy gunmetal sandals ($180) work well with the dress's color and floaty shape; a big faceted cocktail ring ($39.50) adds sparkle. Halston Heritage dress ($50 rental, $325 retail) Day: An all-white dress can stand up to bold accessories, like colored-stone earrings ($105) and a print-happy handbag ($98). Night: For more structure and shine, add a beaded belt ($132); a sleek clutch ($98) won't interfere with the dress's clean lines. Vena Cava Kinga dress ($75 rental, $575 retail) Day: Button a cropped cardigan ($19.50) over the dress and get the look of office separates, then add a simple black flat ($70). Night: Peep-toe, cutout booties ($298) do well to temper the dress's sweetness, as do edgy chain earrings ($48). Lela Rose Portrait Collar Dress ($150 rental, $1,275 retail) Day: Patent pumps ($298) and a ladylike bracelet ($195) are all you need to dress up this piece for work. Night: These right-now strappy shoes ($385) elevate the classic silhouette into eveningwear. And you really can't argue with a purple sequined clutch ($160). Catherine Malandrino dress ($50 rental, $395 retail) Day: A big, neutral satchel ($268) and woven sandals ($29.50) provide a work-friendly counterpoint to the bold color and body-conscious ruching. Night: Sky-high platform heels ($365) and a glossy black bracelet ($195) make the outfit feel totally seductive.

Sponsored Post: Win This Free Trip To Vegas And You’ll Agree – Temptation Is Beautiful

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of KAO Brands. All opinions are 100% mine. Need a tempting break from your usual routine? We have an idea for you: Head over to Temptation is Beautiful, and enter to win tempting beauty basket - they give one away every day - filled with products from John Frieda, Jergens, Curel, Biore, and Ban. And you could win the grand prize, too: A 3-day trip to Vegas for you and three friends, with a $1,500 spending budget. That's $500 a day, for those of you who are counting - we think we could have a pretty good time in Vegas with $500 a day. Free beauty goodies and free vacation...sounds pretty tempting to us. If you just need a 5-minute break, take the temptation quiz - eight questions to determine your "Temptress Temperature" - it'll tell you whether you're "hot, hot, hot" or "cool as a cucumber." (Apparently I'm somewhere in between:) Find out yours...and enter to win a trip to Vegas while you're at it.

If You’re Petite And Cheap, Shop J.Crew’s Kids’ Line. We Did.

Can't afford an entire wardrobe from J.Crew? If you're petite, you're in luck. I bought about $400 worth of J.Crew stuff...from the kids section. For myself. A comment in this month's Lucky piqued  my interest: If you're petite, the article said, you can shop Crewcuts for cheaper than regular J. Crew. Game on: We ordered up a ton of size 14s. Also on the horizon as per WWD, Stella McCartney's newest Gap Kids line is due out March 25. For fair comparison and effect, I tried (one can only try) to pose like the 10-year-old models on JCrew.com. The verdict? This cardigan ($49.50) and tee ($34) fit great on my small frame. The skirt ($32.50) was a little short, but mostly looks like what it is: a tutu. I think Carrie Bradshaw was the only grown woman who could ever pull this trend off, so I'll pass. This dress ($62) is adorable. If you have a very small chest, it will fit you, but might be a little short if you're over 5'3". At the very least, it could be a really cute tunic or beach cover-up, and at $62, it's pricey for a kid, but a lot less than many of J.Crew's dresses. That jacket ($54) is perfection as it's fitted and cropped at the same time, and the tee ($16.50) underneath fit too. The shorts, ($36) however, were tiny, and as one co-worker pointed out, looked more like Spanx than shorts. (Thanks a lot.) Here are four little lessons learned from our little experiment: 1. If you wear an XS in women's tees, you can buy them from Crewcuts for less. The ones I tried were made from the same slub material as the Women's tees, but up to 50% cheaper. They don't accommodate breasts, though (see item #2). 2. Tweens don't have boobs, butts, or thighs. So if you're going to try to squeeze into Crewcuts, clothe your least womanly parts instead. I have thighs, so the bermuda shorts above were way too small. 3. Check the sizing chart. The measurements are basically correct, if you take 2. into consideration (those shorts zipped up, but were in no way presentable). 4. The kids' knit jackets are actually kind of amazing. I'm keeping this one and this one. If you can't fit into kids' clothes, no worries: head over to the J.Crew sale and get 25% off dresses today. See more sales and deals, and check out our online sample sales to plan your week.

Best Find Of The Day: Banana Republic’s Layering Tank To Wear Just About Anywhere

I've kind of been on a quest for a layering tank that's jersey (looks neater than cotton), sleeveless (not bra-baring spaghetti strap), and long enough to peek out under blouses and cardigans. You'd be amazed how hard that is to find. But! I found it last week at Banana Republic - and promptly bought two. Now it's on sale so you can take advantage of the deal. The Sleeveless Luxe Tank ($22.13, from $29.50) is 25% off today and tomorrow (along with all other regular-priced merchandise) if you use coupon code BRSAVE25. Wear your new tank with one of this season's spring trends (under a menswear-inspired shirt, perhaps)  or as a cover-up over one of our favorite bathing suit styles - you'll figure out how to wear it with pretty much anything more of our best finds of the day, and today's highlighted sales and deals.

Sponsored Post: SwimsuitsForAll Has Cute Swimwear That Fits You – For Under $70

We can finally see the sun here on the east coast, so naturally, we're thinking about shedding a few layers and daydreaming of the beach. Thankfully, SwimsuitsForAll has great deals on sizes-8-and-up swimsuits right now, so you don't have to get caught paying full price come Memorial Day weekend. Plus, you'll save an extra 10% on all non-clearance items when you enter 10OFF at checkout. A few of our favorites (with discounts conveniently calculated already): This simple red square-neck suit ($49.50, from $88) has a retro vibe we love, plus the underwire bra and tummy control panel ensure you'll have enough support. The cute, flirty skirt on this swimdress ($59.40, from $78) can disguise a less-than-perfect behind, and the ruching by the midsection will make your tummy look taut, even if it's not. This strapless tankini ($48.98, from $124) has on-trend nautical details at the bust that draw eyes up, and a top that's cut long, so you're not constantly tugging it down. Looking for more swimwear ideas? Check out SwimsuitsForAll's selection of black swimwear and chlorine-proof swimwear.

Our Favorite Hanky Panky Thong Has A Hole In It

Hanky Panky is making crotchless underwear. It costs $16, doesn't look like something out of a low-budget porn film (I think), and is actually pretty comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, that you can wear it all day, just like a regular Hanky Panky - and we love (love) our regular Hanky Pankys. I'm not saying, mind you, to stock up on this underwear as an everyday go-to, as I might suggest with Gap's Ultra Low Girl Shorts or my beloved Hanky Panky Signature Lace Thongs. Lets not kid ourselves, that'd be a bit bizarre. What I am saying, is that should you purchase this thong as a funny-slash-actually-kind-of-hot present to yourself and your significant or not-so-significant other, you'll be able to wear it like a normal thong, too, under work clothes and cocktail dresses. Without feeling bizarre. Get Yours: Bare Necessities (where you won't find it by searching "crotchless" - it's called the Lace Low Rise Thong with Open Panel, because it's classy, like you). See our picks for the best underwear (no holes) and the best bras to wear with it.

Sponsored Post: Get $1.50 Off The Vaseline Lotion That’s “Definitely Soft And Smooth”

Something you could probably use to beat the end-of-winter blahs: A not-too-thick lotion (that won't feel overwhelming come spring) that uses three moisturizing ingredients to really get your skin soft and smooth (just ask the ladies in that video above). Vaseline's new lotion, Vaseline Sheer Infusion, does all that for under $7. And if you buy it now at Wal-Mart with this coupon, it's under $4. So actually, we're revising our first statement: You can probably beat the winter blahs with a little guilt-free beauty treat - this one is calorie-free, and costs about the same as a fro-yo. Adios, winter blahs. This post is sponsored. To read our policy on sponsored content, click here.

Sponsored Post: Vacation-Ready Slimming Swimsuits From Bare Necessities

Bare Necessities isn't just a great place to find underwear and PJs - they also carry some of the most flattering swimwear styles around from masters-in-slimming, SPANX, Miraclesuit, and Magicsuit. There are a bunch of SPANX styles available at BN, and this one shoulder one-piece ($178) is one of our favorites (we're even giving you a chance to win one this week, courtesy of BN). The flirty ruffle and sleek cut are miles away from the stodgy shaping one-pieces of just a few years ago. Bare Necessities also has a ton of updated styles from Miraclesuit, a slimming standby. We love the sexy plunging neckline and stylishly flattering rushing on the Sonatina One-Piece ($130). We're super excited to finally see shaping tankinis, and Magicsuit (Miraclesuit's little sister) is making some adorable ones, including this Nina Halter Top ($87) - we love the thick, supportive straps and pretty embellishment at the bust.
