What a Winter wonderland! This elephant enjoys a game of catch . . . with himself. He enjoyed making snowballs to toss at his head, in his mouth, and all over the place. Looks like he's having a blast all alone, no need for an elephant pal here at the Berlin Zoo.

Remember how cool Janet Jackson looked with long box-braids? Or the versatility of Brandy's microbraids? We do. A braided hairstyle can make afro-textured hair look really fly, but did you know it can also protect it from feeling really dry? Just as your skin needs to be protected during winter, women with afro-textured hair should protect their delicate strands from ice cold weather, and braids are a stylish option for hair hibernation. Here, some tips and inspiration.

The weather outside may be frightful, but these five trends will keep you hot and heavy.
We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!
'Tis the season for a marathon of holiday dinners and events, so I'm shopping for versatile winter pieces that'll take me straight from work to a few hot toddies. And while these picks may not be festive in the traditional "I'm a walking disco ball" way, they're still eye-catchingly cool (and warm!).1. Dress: I love how this gives almost complete coverage (except for the slightly open back) but still comes off as oh-so-sexy. Don't worry about what necklace to wear or pairing it with the right jacket—all it needs is a pair of black tights.

When it comes to hydrating skin dried out by cold wind and indoor heating, you don't have to go high-end to get something soothing and highly hydrating. For sensitive skin, my personal pick is Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($11). If you have oily skin that still needs a little bit of help fighting off the flakies, Neutrogena Facial Moisturizer ($10) is a nice oil-free option. People with skin prone to irritation and redness might consider trying Yes To Tomatoes Totally Tranquil Facial Hydrating Lotion ($10), which promises to help keep things calm. If you've got naturally dry skin made even drier by cold weather, then a heavier cream like CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM ($13) will probably work best for you. And for bargain hunters, Up & Up Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15 ($7) is about as inexpensive as it gets.
