Celebrity collaborations are a dime a dozen, but every once in a while you land on a collab that just seems to make sense. This week, we’re coveting pieces from Jessica Biel’s new athleisure line with yoga and fitness brand, Gaiam. Biel, who’s one of those people that gives us total #FitnessGoals, says she wanted to create a collection of pieces that you could wear to the gym, but not feel weird wearing out to brunch or errands, too.
Read on to find out our favorite pieces from the collection and to see what else SPY readers were checking out this week.
1. Jessica Biel Just Launched An Athleisure Line and Here’s What We’re Buying
The newest Gaiam brand ambassador, Jessica Biel, has just launched her signature apparel collection, and we’re in love. The debut athleisure line of the actress, mother and activist is a mix of capris, tops, leggings, jackets and jumpsuits that boast a subtle sexiness not often seen in the workout world.
Deep V’s, open-back styles and cut outs bring the runway to performance wear that can be worn to the gym, out to dinner or to pick the kids up from school. Before the release of the line, Biel stated the goal of the collection was to, “create something that looks out of your price range but quite pleasantly is not.”
These are our favorite six items from Biel’s new collection with the popular yoga and fitness brand, but honestly any piece you pick will fill you with confidence on — and off — the mat.
2. SPY Guide: How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster
Your hair only grows about a half an inch each month. Whether you’re suffering from a bad hair cut or simply longing to add length to your luscious locks, there are a number of proven ways to encourage your hair to grow quicker. One of the best ways to promote faster growth is by getting regular “micro-trims,” which remove split ends that inhibit the growth of your normal hair. While trimming your hair may feel like a counter-intuitive step, it’s more of a one step back for two steps forward case.
In addition to regular trims, there are a number of products available to put your hair in the best shape for maximum growth. Treating your hair with a blend of protein therapy and intense hydration is key to helping it grow, repair, and avoid breakage. These helpful products range from vitamins to scalp stimulating massagers.

2018 marks the 90th birthday of everybody’s favorite cartoon mouse. Ever since Mickey Mouse first appeared on screen in Steamboat Willie back in 1928, the charismatic, little mouse has been finding his way into the hearts of children and adults alike. A seemingly endless number of heartwarming cartoons, timeless films and the 7 Disney theme parks keep Mickey’s popularity as high as ever. And he doesn’t look like he’s aged a day in the last 90 years.

Disney and Vans have come together to offer a limited edition line of socks, shoesand clothing celebrate Mickey’s spectacular 90th birthday.

Whichever treatment you choose, patience is essential when trying to heal scars and fade stretch marks as it takes time and diligence.
