Dai Mo by Lubin: Unknown Artifact Research

  Today we will review a rather rare fragrance in our Vintage Perfumes column. When I came across it, the perfume was not listed in the Fragrantica and Osmotheque databases, which suggests that the perfume is not popular, even among vintage perfume admirers. The fragrance name is Dai Mo, and it was released by the old Parisian perfume house, Lubin. Unknown perfumes launched by legendary brands a...

Coquette 2.0: Making Things

  Hi friends! I have taken a couple months off from the blog for two reasons. I actually wasn't even sure until recently that I was coming back. The most important reason I wasn't around was that my 78 year old mom injured herself before Thanksgiving. I spent most of December and January caring for her -- taking her to doctors, specialists and her physical therapy appointments. She is doing so much better now but it will be a slow recovery that will most likely take the rest of this year. Secon...

How You Can Fight Off Excessively High Rents

Sponsored.  Renting an apartment in Berlin has become outrageously expensive and doesn’t fit the anti-capitalist flair that many residents are here for. In fact, rents in Berlin have almost doubled in the last 5 years. The more often I talk to friends about the situation, the more I get used to it. And that’s even scarier. The other day, a friend who recently moved to Berlin told me that, she pays a staggering 920€ for 35m2 in Sonnenallee. That’s over 25€ per sqm! Allegedly luxuriously renovat...

How Cancer Helped Me See the Key to Successful Organizational Change

Article Published by SmartBrief Sometimes life lessons come from surprising places. In early 2004, just nine months after completing treatment for breast cancer, my wife, Katie, was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. During the months that followed, I learned an important lesson about connection that influenced my perspective on how to approach organizational change.

The Cool New Piercing Trends Everyone Will Be Trying This Year

It used to be that - much like tattoos or ripped jeans - piercings were reserved for people with Steven Tyler haircuts, cigarettes, and Sex Pistols jackets. Now, thanks to modern-day celebrities redefining what it means to "look cool," they have become far more mainstream - and anyone with the capacity to play air guitar has been pulling them off with aplomb. The last few years especially have seen a meteoric rise in ear piercing trends - from where you get it to the sheer number of jewelry you ...

Lady Gaga Just Got a HUGE Back Tattoo That Would Make Jack Maine Proud

It looks like Lady Gaga is basking in her recent Grammy wins with some fresh ink. On Feb. 14, the 32-year-old debuted not one but two new tattoos by LA-based artist Winter Stone. She first shared an Instagram photo of a sizable back tattoo that features a delicate rose sprouting up along her spinal cord.

I Tried the Copper Hair Trend Everyone's Talking About, and It's Even Better Than I Expected

Copper hair is nothing new, but it's certainly caught the attention of everyone in Hollywood and has since trickled its way into almost every Instagram hair account as well as everyday life. After seeing Julianne Hough debut the hue last year, I pledged I'd follow suit and give it a go myself. I did my research, which consisted of creating a hair inspiration board on Instagram, and called in the professional I truly trusted with such a major hair makeover, Jack Howard, colorist at UK's Paul Edm...

Bucket Hats Are Your Street Style-Approved Replacement For Beanies

When bucket hats started showing up atop the heads of every street styler, from New York to Milan, last September, we admittedly were skeptical. While a new hat trend is certainly appreciated, we weren't quite convinced that these were the ones to take that long-awaited spot. So when below-zero temps and freezing rain arrived, calling for winter hats of the more utilitarian variety, we were sure that the bucket hat craze would die off.But boy, were we wrong. According to our most-trusted trend ...

The Girl Who Burned Her Hair Off With A Curling Wand Is Back With A New Video

With any good viral video comes 15 minutes of fame. It seems every day a new internet sensation is dominating our social media feeds, appearing as a guest on talk shows, and being referenced in casual conversations. Then, just as quickly as they reached national fame, they exit the zeitgeist altogether. But these shooting stars aren't always gone for good. Sometimes they boomerang for a "where are they now" moment, which is exactly what we're getting from Tori Locklear. After a video where she...
