    Frankly, we don't even want to use the P-word to describe Robyn Lawley's latest swimsuit editorial for Cosmo Australia. It's not that plus-size is a dirty word — far from it — but we're afraid that would make this whole editorial all about her measurements, and honestly, there's much more to it. Yes, the Australian model may wear a label with a double-digit number, but, in these photos, we're far less concerned with that than how amazing she looks in these suits.

    Clad in one- and two-pieces alike, Lawley is practically flawless in the shots from the magazine's December issue. But, what's even more refreshing than her beachside photos and sun-kissed glow — summer, where art thou? — is the image of a lady who's not the cookie-cutter replica of most other fashion-editorial stars or swimsuit models. In fact, we think you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who could claim that Lawley not only looks beautiful, but also healthy. And, let's face it: She is a model and does portray an aspirational image, but for once we appreciate that the glossy inspiration has taken a different shape. Click on for a look at more of the images from the spread.

Over Carrying 2 Bags To Work? So Are We...

Leaving work at work is easier said than done. Often, we find ourselves lugging our laptops to and from the office — not wanting to part from important files or programs we may need offsite. (Sad times, we know.) That, in turn, can lead to toting around two bags instead of one. Here's the dilemma: Our regular satchel read
