Do You Have A Random Hobby? A Celebrity Obsession? There's A Cruise For That

When Stefanie, a customer service representative from San Jose, CA, heard about Kesha Cruise, she knew immediately that she was going to go. “I was and still am anxious about going on a cruise, but it's Kesha so I had to do it. This is probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” she tells me. “It's funny, before this cruise was announced someone asked me if I would ever want to go on a cruise, and I had said ‘not really.’ But I'm willing to do pretty much anything to see Kesha.”Kesha Cruise: Ke...

You Can Redecorate Your Home From The Comfort Of...Your Home

Decorating a home or apartment is a fun project, but it's also daunting. Whether you're starting with a blank canvas or looking for a statement piece to upgrade an area, it can be hard to know where to start. That's where the internet can be your best — and worst — friend. Enter a few words into Google, and you'll open up pages and pages of every kind of bookend, end table, or table runner you can imagine. Now your search has gone from a treasure hunt to a needle-in-a-haystack hunt.To avoid sea...

The $5 Face Wipes Ariana Grande Swears By

Contrary to what you may have read at the nail salon or in the checkout line, celebrities are not just like us. Last time we checked, we didn't have a private chef, driver, or trainer — although we're totally open to all three — nor do we live in a gated community or vacation on yachts. (Again, we wouldn't mind...) But one way celebrities — even the richest, the most famous, the most successful — actually do seem relatable? They love cheap beauty products.Yes, sometimes even Kylie Jenner and Be...

The Better Your Product, the Better Your Life

--> One day, when I was growing up, I had a pain in my foot and my stepmother took me to see a podiatrist. I had never heard of a podiatrist and I have never been to one since, but I remember hearing the most unusual story at the time about a girl who became a podiatrist. Several years ago, some friends of one of my parents’ had a daughter who completed a few years of college and was pretty out of control. She had gotten horrible grades, had gotten into all sorts of trouble, and seemed to be hea...

Dior Homme Parfum: Europe Looks to the Orient

  The results of the recent Fragrantica Readers' Choice Awards 2018 voting were unexpected and interesting for me. For example, Dior Homme Parfum was ranked third in the category "Fragrances for Men" and fourth in the category "The Best Interpretation of the Classic," but last year it remained out of Fragrantica readers' focus (with only 8th place in the longevity category). I decided to get a... Read full article: Dior Homme Parfum: Europe Looks to the Orient from Fragrantica Perfumes and Col...

Stop Telling Me What To Do With My Gray Hair

When Lashawnda Becoats turned 40, she went on a two-week trip to Europe. At the time, she typically frequented the salon once a week to get her gray roots touched up, so she knew that by the end of the vacation, her silvery hairs would be more visible than ever.She was terrified at the thought, but after two weeks gallivanting across Spain and Portugal, something changed. "I was starting to feel differently when I looked in the mirror," Becoats tells Refinery29. "I had never seen my gray hair, ...

Innovation: Sparking Imagination With Field Trips

In my most recent Pluralsight course on innovation, one of my tips was to go on some kind of outing. The idea is that when you get out of your regular environment, and see different things and ideas and designs and solutions and even different problems, you can get out of a thinking rut. And hopefully, that brings some level of innovation to you. I experienced that on my five week trip to Europe, and a recent trip to Hawaii. But you don’t have to go far to get out of a creative rut. If you alway...

70 years ago today, Christian Dior unveiled what was called "The New Look."

Wikipedia:[T]he new collection went down in fashion history as the "New Look" after the editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar Carmel Snow exclaimed, "It's such a new look!...

Uganda only tolerates women’s bodies when there is money to be made

Amsterdam: How to dress and act like a local

Maybe it’s because I’m American, but I can spot our style from a mile away. I see it all over Amsterdam: The baseball cap, the oh-so-handy cargo pants, and a sporty, all-weather and near-fluorescent windbreaker. We stick out like sore thumbs in Euroland. Of course, standing out is not necessarily a bad thing, and it’s certainly a practical way of dressing. We are all for Cheapos embracing the style that makes them feel the most comfortable. But it’s also nice to blend in with the locals and not ...

Spaniards eat later and stay up longer than their European neighbours because of the siesta. But now that’s under threatMidweek in Madrid on a summer’s evening, it’s 25C and at 10pm the bars, cafes and squares are full of Madrileños, chatting and drinking.

From Le Pen to Alice Weidel: how the European far-right set its sights on women

In far-right populist parties across the continent, a new generation of angry white women are rising to leadership roles. Why are they turning to groups that have traditionally opposed feminism?It was a chastening lesson for any woman tempted to join the cut and thrust of rightwing populism. After Corinna Miazga was elected to the German parliament in 2017 for the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party, a male colleague suggested she would be better suited to being a pole dancer than ...
