Are stars just like us? It doesn't feel that way when gazing at some celebrity's multimillion-dollar estate through the window of a star-map tour bus.
Visit any factory-inspired condo development, or hip-and-happening home store, and you'll almost certainly find yourself wading through design history from the '20s, '50s, '60s and even the '70s. The reality is that much of what we consider 'cutting edge' actually predates our parents.
You know those seasons in life that you look back on and think, "Whew, those were some amazing times!"? Well, that's how we're going to look back on what's happening right now.
1. Super-luxe, pearly-iridescent, pressed face powder. Oh no, wait. On second glance, I believe that's roughly, and I'm just spitballing here, about one third of a cup of ground up Cheerio dust.
Actor Richard Gunn showed me that the interest is still there. When he's not filming television series, Granite Flats, or wrapping his latest film, Dark Places with Charlize Theron, he is enjoying a "pipe dream" of his own.
I have always felt that it is possible to have the world of luxury and sustainable fashion come together. If these two powerful combinations could meet, I am sure more people would be open to making the change to environmentally friendly trends. Luckily, my dreams are coming true. More and more there are greater options for vegan fashion.
It seems Barbie's mid-life crisis started around five years ago when this former beauty queen was traumatized after receiving her AARP card in the mail. Recent tattoos, endless diets, strict workout regimens, and bizarre anti-aging rituals- yep, her mid-life crisis was in full swing. Who can blame her?
An integrated sound system, a glass staircase and long, lean Italian style seating -- if the season finale of Colin & Justin's Cabin Pressure is anything to go by, it looks like Canadian cottaging just got a shot in the arm of European style...
When you are tastefully sexy AND doing things to improve the world, it's so much more powerful and inspiring than just looking hot in front of the camera.
Whether you're preparing for your wedding day, or just editing your permanent makeup bag stash, these products will take you from priming to prettifying in no time.
Hallelujah! We can finally reveal our cottage kitchen, whose transformation has been a veritable state secret these last few months. Truth is we wanted to avoid stealing our own thunder and opted, therefore, to throw a veil of secrecy across the mini miracle. Now we're revealing it in these virtual pages.
Oftentimes, it's nice to afford (and be afforded) a little privacy when friends arrive. Sure, we're all for mix and mingle, but personal chill time is welcome too. So come one, come all (overseas pals and family are you reading?) safe in the knowledge we've fashioned, as your holiday haven, an annex to which you can escape when our laughter becomes too raucous or our music too loud.
At home in LA, the normal life continues in the wake of her stardom. "It's beautiful," she muses. "I'll joke with my sister and tell her, 'Hey, I'm a film star.' Her response is always the same. She will say, 'That's nice, Amanda. Now go clean up after the cat.'"
Trying on jeans can be a really positive experience or a not so great experience. With those bright fluorescent lights in the change room and the sales person asking from the other side of the door, "how are they fitting?" Purchasing jeans can be a roller coaster of emotions.
The celebrities seen in magazines give me more focus on how to take my lunch time sweat style up a notch. You never know who you will meet in the grocery aisle.
A bomb shelter as inspiration for our cottage shower room reno?
