Luxe on a Dime: 15 High/Low Hacks for Using Marble Scraps, from the Remodelista Archives

Lately one high/low hack has been popping up everywhere we look: using bits and pieces of discarded or leftover marble around the house for a luxe look on a budget. Case in point: When we wrote about this Two-Week, $1,000, 500-Square-Foot Rental Overhaul in Bushwick, Brooklyn, design student Kristina Line revealed that she scoured nearby marble scrap yards for unwanted pieces to create shelving and backsplashes in her DIY apartment; the restauranteurs behind the design-forward Portuguese wine ba...

Davelle: 13 Ideas to Steal from New York’s Tiniest Jewelbox Restaurant

A magic thing about New York is the way that, every now and then, you stumble upon a little jewel box—a room, a restaurant—on a side street, behind an innocuous storefront, where you least expect it. When Julie and I both spotted a photo of Davelle, a new restaurant on the Lower East Side, a while back, it seemed just that sort of small gem: not much from the outside—easy, even, to walk by, if its grate were pulled across the front its narrow shopfront—but inside, a bright and thoughtful little ...

Comment on confetti cookies by Mimi

I JUST made these. Used dark green, lime green and white sprinkles for St. Patrick’s Day. Festive, but not nearly as much work as rolled and frosted cookies! My house smells like a bakery.

10 Design Ideas to Steal from Verjus in San Francisco

Traveling through Europe in recent years, designer Lindsay Tusk and chef Michael Tusk noticed “different variations on the same theme” of an informal and energetic style of dining in Paris, Venice, and San Sebastian Gambero. So the Tusks, known in San Francisco for their restaurants Quince and Cotogna, came up with the idea for Verjus, a bar à vin and cave à manger (eat-in cellar) with a “high-fidelity atmosphere full of gusto, spontaneity, and excitement,” says Lindsay Tusk. An all-day menu wit...

AK Monthly Recap: February 2019

What’s the best thing that could have happened this month? I became an auntie again! My beautiful friend welcomed an adorable baby boy to the world and that, more than anything, made this month special. I’ve been an auntie for ten months now and it is one of my favorite roles I’ve ever had. I love having a few special kids in my life, watching them grow, and knowing that I’ll be a loving, supportive adult in their lives. Beyond that, this was a month of being a workhorse and not being super soc...

The Best Neighborhoods in London: Where to Stay When You Visit

Posted: 2/25/2019 | February 25th, 2019 I’ve always liked London, but when I visited last year something in me just clicked—and poof! I finally saw the light and came to love it. London has a million things to do to keep you busy a lifetime over. With its amazing architecture, world-class art museums, tons of historical sites, and unique shopping experiences, what’s not to love? What’s not to love about a city where the pubs are so small everyone just stands on the street with their pint glass?...

How to read fiction to build a startup

“The book itself is a curious artefact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable. If a book told you something when you were 15, it will tell it to you aga...

JeJoue Mimi Soft

JeJoue Mimi Soft £69.99 from Toys 4 Naughty Boys Seven years ago, I reviewed the original Mimi in a short, lackluster (both in my writing skill and my opinion of the toy) review. The truth was, I always suspected my original Mimi was defective because people loved it. I mean, almost every review was a rave one, and people discussed the strength of the vibrations favorably. I thought little of mine, and while I didn’t really discuss it in my review, I was also underwhelmed with the buttons,...

How Do I Love a Problem Like ‘Rent’?

The televised Fox production of Rent Live,  other than the production hiccups that led to it being majorly pre-recorded rather than actually “live,” resurrected both the problems and affection I had with the original stage musical. The lyrics still resonated with me even if I now scratch my head at the story, characters, and the handling of the historical context. In 2007, I was a middle schooler in Texas exploring the concept of sexuality. As a middle schooler under a conservative father...

In their first town halls, new Southern California Democrats pressed about progressive campaign pledges

Democrats dominated Southern California’s House races in November by telling voters they would pursue universal health care, immigration reform, stricter gun laws and green energy programs. They also promised something else: accessibility. Now, just weeks into the freshmen Democrats’ first terms, voters who helped elect them — and a few who voted against them — already are asking, “What are you doing to keep those promises?” That was the context at a handful of well-attended town halls hosted ar...

Comment on cozy cabbage and farro soup by Mimi

This looks absolutely delicious! I must be the only one who doesn’t think the color is a problem. I have a quick question about your jars. Where oh where is that adorable jar (with the broth in it) from? Do you freeze your stock in it or can it crack in the freezer?

Singapore Airlines Killing Close-In Waitlisting For Award Travel

Back in 2012 I waitlisted Mimi and me for Singapore Suites at the saver award level when it first became available for miles. The waitlist cleared and we were able to redeem tickets in a couples suite for just 57K Singapore miles each. It was truly incredible to have that kind of space on a […]

You Can Currently Redeem United Or Star Alliance Miles For Singapore Suites On Select Routes

Generally speaking, you need to use Singapore miles to book business or first class awards on Singapore’s premium planes.

How the Framing of ‘A Private War’ Does a Disservice to Its Subject – And Misses the Point Entirely

“I want people to know your story.” A Private War recognizes, in words, Marie Colvin’s ethos right from the get-go. Her mission, first and foremost, was to speak truth to power, unearthing the horrors bequeathed to civilians by leaders and governments. Rosamund Pike, who plays her in the film, repeats this mantra frequently, stressing the importance of telling individual stories from the world’s war-torn regions. Men buried in secret for decades (“ Uncovered: the secret grave of 600 murdered...
