T.J. Dillashaw trades pounds for glory to face Henry Cejudo and become a UFC legend

For weeks, T.J. Dillashaw posted pictures of his transition from bantamweight to flyweight. The UFC 135-pound champion looked shredded as he trained his body to move down an entire weight division in his pursuit of MMA history. To fight fans, though, the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler appeared on an unhealthy path. They bemoaned how Dillashaw looked terrible, drained and dry. “That’s just expected no matter what,” the Orange resident said of his move to 125 pounds. “Someone who wants to try...

Object of Desire: A Minimal-Luxe Water Carafe and Glasses from Rose Uniacke in London

English designer Rose Uniacke has a way with the luxe-minimal look: her London house and conservatory alike are glamorous without being gaudy, old-world and sumptuous (she was trained as a furniture restorer and gilder) but not overstuffed. The same holds true for the wares in her online shop, including this covetable faceted water glasses and pitcher. Take a look: Above: The cut-crystal Water Jug & Glasses have faceted sides: “perfect for the bedside table, small meeting, or lemonade in the ...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Clawfoot Bathtubs

When we think of clawfoot bathtubs, we think of luxury: deep baths you could spend all day in, with candles (and maybe a glass of Champagne). Aesthetically, we tend to prefer freestanding baths over built-in versions: they feel classic and timeless in any washroom. But there are, we admit, a few practical downsides that could outweigh the positives. If any of the following 10 apply to you, you may want to rethink springing for a freestanding bathtub. (And remember that it’s always a good idea to...
