The holidays are a time for gathering your nearest and dearest to eat, drink and be merry. And during our regularly scheduled Instagram scrolls, we’ve been noticing a trend: Group selfies. Also known as a "grelfie," it’s basically a selfie with a large group of people. To try it yourself, tap the person you’re with who has the longest arms and ask him or her to snap a pic of your whole party.

Teddy Bear Coats

Spotted on celebs, Instagram influencers and random women on the street, teddy bear coats are everywhere this season. Think: Giant silhouettes for maximum coziness. Interested? Here are 16 you can buy right now.  

Unapologetically Cheesy Holiday Movies 

After last year's A Christmas Prince, Netflix is doubling down on low stakes, semi-cheesy holiday movies. This year you’ve got a couple of options: A Christmas Prince 2: The Royal Wedding (the sequel to A Christmas Prince, natch), The Christmas Chronicles (starring Kurt Russell) and The Princess Switch (starring Vanessa Hudgens). Basically, the streaming service is banking on viewers watching something they know will never win an Oscar but love anyway, dammit.

The ketotarian diet

Everyone’s talking about the keto diet, but there’s only so much bacon, chicken and cheese a person can eat. The ketotarian diet is a trendy, slight modification on keto created by Dr. Will Cole, which permits meat, fish and cheese in moderation but focuses mostly on plant-based fats and low-carb veggies. With “New Year, New Me” and healthy-eating resolutions just a couple of weeks away, expect this guy to make it into many a 2019 resolution.

Neon Holiday Decor

Are red and green over? According to Etsy’s Holiday Trends Report, maybe. Per the report, more than 1.3 million people are searching for neon holiday swag. From greeting cards to yarn garland, this decor trend is both merry and bright—literally.

Jorja smith

In the past year, this uber-talented, 21-year-old Brit released her debut album, Lost & Found; collaborated with Drake; and co-wrote a song with Kendrick Lamar for the Black Panther soundtrack. Soulful and jazzy, she cites Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys as inspirations. She’s about to wrap up a U.S. and Canada tour, making now the ideal time to get on board (if you haven’t already).
