Victoria Beckham Partners With Reebok, Plans Collaboration for Next Year

BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM: With her new deal with Reebok, Victoria Beckham is the latest designer to link up with a major athletic brand.
The British-born designer let her 17.6 million Instagram followers know by posting a video of herself wearing the Club C sneakers outside of the company’s new Boston headquarters. She made the most of her first day on the scene, hosting an all-company meeting, touring the office, checking out the brand’s archives and holding initial design and planning meetings.
The choice of Beckham is meant to further Reebok’s message of women’s empowerment, which includes a roster of internationally known personalities like Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid, Aly Raisman and Teyana Taylor. With four children and a multimillion-dollar business, Beckham would appear to have little time for exercise. Whippet-lean as she is, Beckham has spoken publicly about her daily two-hour morning workouts and healthy diet. Reebok executives undoubtedly approve of that regimen. The fact that Beckham’s designs are meant to relay a sense of strength, confidence and power also met their approval.
Beckham said, “I have always championed instilling confidence in women and Reebok is a brand that has been at the forefront of this same message for decades. To have the

The consulting firm assigns the award, which is at its 21st edition, to entrepreneurs who managed, through their innovative spirit and strategic vision, to create value contributing to the growth of the Italian economy.

I consider this award a signification recognition, highlighting the continues efforts and the passion guiding our daily work aimed at reaching more and more ambitious goals.”
As reported, in the nine months ended Sept. 30, Moncler’s revenues climbed 15 percent to 736.8 million euros, compared with 639.3 million euros in the same period last year, lifted by all distribution channels and geographic markets.
On Oct. 24, Ruffini attended the

LVMH Young Artisan Program Celebrates Fourth Year

SCHOOL IS IN: “Passion for craftsmanship can take you very far,” said Bernard Arnault, recalling Louis Vuitton’s rise from a “lone craftsman in his native Jura” who “thanks to his skills allowed us to now have the first luxury goods brand in the world” during the matriculation ceremony of the Institut des Métiers d’Excellence training program on Thursday.
The initiative, which launched in 2014, has grown from 28 students at its inception to 300 matriculating this year.
“What creates desire is product, and creation would not exist without the skills of the craftspeople who are behind the success of our houses,” said Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH’s group executive vice president, human resources and synergies.
Gaemperle insisted on the program’s focus on “work-training to practical, tangible, certifying, free and paid educational tracks” to “encourage employability” and also underlined the need for “training strategies to promote learning throughout one’s career,” to address the evolving needs of employees called upon to work longer. She found satisfaction in seeing apprenticeship restored to its former sterling reputation, she later added.
Among the new educational tracks offered this year, which now range from the CAP to master’s degrees, are a leathermaking course with Florence’s Polimoda design school, one in goldsmithing at

LeToya Luckett Gets Engaged — with a Giant Diamond Ring — a Year After Divorce

LeToya Luckett is ready to walk down the aisle again!

The R&B singer is engaged to Texas businessman Tommicus Walker, she announced on Wednesday — sharing a stunning selfie of her jaw-dropping engagement ring on Instagram.

“I said, ‘Yes yeeeesssss’ on his Burfday!!” Luckett, 36, captioned the shot — adding the hashtags, “#issaengagement #GodShowedout #HesaGoodManSavanah #LoveWins #8/16/17.”

Her happy news comes a year after news broke that Luckett split from husband Rob Hillman, whom she married in January of 2016 and split from two months later. Their divorce was finalized last spring.

“Anytime you open up and allow yourself to love and love hard, that’s the risk you take of it possibly not working out,” she revealed to The Breakfast Club in May 2017. “And although we really did love and care for each other, it just didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.”

RELATED VIDEO: Property Brother Drew Scott Gives The Details On His Wedding Proposal

Luckett — who was one of the original four members of Destiny’s Child and sang on hits such as “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’ Jumpin’” — was surprised by Walker’s proposal, and teared up when he dropped down to one knee in front of their friends and family (including his young daughter).

The happy moment was captured by Luckett’s brother Gavin, who shared it to Instagram. “That one time @letoyaluckett planned a surprise Bday dinner for @iamtwalk2 but he had a bigger surprise for her,” he explained in the caption. “Congrats y’all!!!”

Aside from wedding planning, Luckett is prepping to portray legendary pop and R&B singer Dionne Warwick in the upcoming biopic, Dionne. The film will follow Warwick’s early career spanning from 1962-1968, during which time she recorded some of her biggest hits including “Alfie” and “I Say a Little Prayer.”

Along with channeling Warwick in the movie, Luckett will also record the singer’s songs for the soundtrack.

These 4 Dogs Have Been Patiently Waiting for More Than a Year for Forever Homes — Adopt Them?

Every pet deserves a warm bed and an even warmer hug.

Unfortunately, there are countless pets in this world that are homeless and yearning to make a human’s life better. Shelter and rescues like Best Friends Animal Society, the largest no-kill animal organization in the country, help many of these cats, dogs and other critters find that forever home, providing them with the medical care, attention and diets they need until that happens.

This magical moment of “finding their human” occurs at different times for every pet. Some are only in the shelter for one day, but others are left to patiently wait for months, sometimes even years.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day we want to highlight four superb canines that have been living with Best Friends for more than one year, hoping to find their forever. Maybe their wait is almost over.

Duke

“Handsome Duke is looking for a kingdom to reign over. This noble shepherd/Chow Chow mix is well-mannered and super smart. Duke likes to spend his time running around, playing, hoping for ear scratches and napping in his very own fashion: upside down, feet straight up to the sky. Duke is great with most other dogs and such a sweetie. He’d be a fabulous companion for any big dog lover,” gushed his current caretakers. 

If you think this active gentleman is for you, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Nina

Best Friends says, “Pretty Nina is a fun, active gal and the perfect exercise pal. She loves long walks, hikes and play time in the yard. Nina adores people and can play nicely with most other large dogs, too. She was recently in a foster home and was described as: ‘An absolute star! Nina’s an energetic, affectionate 75-pound lap dog.’ This special girl is so ready to be your best friend.” 

To learn more about this large lap dog, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Tyler

Best Friends describes 2-year-old Tyler as a young, lovable retriever mix that is smart, playful and super active. And he’s a smarty-pants who already knows sit, down and give paw! He has been in an amazing foster home with a trainer who is teaching him extra manners and commands so he can be your ideal companion. Tyler loves learning new things and going for long walks in the park. Tyler is a typical busy-body teenager and is looking for someone who shares his zest for life and is happy to help him work on his training. He loves other dogs but can be a little too wacky and wild for some.

If Tyler sounds like a perfect fit for your home, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Churchill

Churchill is a man of simple pleasures. This American bulldog mix just wants your love, some yummy treats and the occasional belly rub. Churchill takes a little extra time to warm up to new people, but with some extra TLC and patience (and treats!) he’ll be your bro, too. He’s got the most ridiculous and adorable underbite that makes him look like a character from Lord of the Rings. And he has the sweetest brown eyes. Churchill has also decided that he’s all the dog that anybody should really need and prefers to be the only dog in his home.

To become Churchill’s human, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Busy Philipps Says She Made More Money Doing Instagram Ads Than Acting Last Year

Busy Philipps is getting honest about her money.

The 37-year-old actress opened up about her income in a Thursday Instagram Story, revealing that she made more money last year doing sponsored ads on the social media site than through acting.

After someone said that they liked Philipps’ Instagram because she wasn’t always posting #spon like some other celebrities, the actress revealed that she “wasn’t above it” and had done sponsored content in the past — but only for brands she actually liked.

“I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year,” Philipps said. “I made more money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands.”

It is common for celebrities to promote brands on the photo-sharing site. Stars like Khloé Kardashian, Lea Michele, Bella Hadid and more have gotten in on the action.

“I’m not above it, guys,” Philipps said in the clip. “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels partnership, which, you know, is my favorite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”

Busy Philipps Describes Her ‘Freaking Creepy’ Uber Scare

The mother-of-two‘s Instagram account has several posts promoting the arts and crafts retail chain along with Campbell’s Soup and more.

However, she noted in the video that she likely wouldn’t promote a product that she deemed “random and weird” — “Unless it was, like, a billion dollars.”

“I’m gonna sell things,” she continued. “That’s my only point.”

Philipps currently plays Gale Liptrapp in HBO’s Vice Principals and last year made appearances on New Girl and Angie Tribeca.

Here’s Why Queen Elizabeth II Has Two Birthdays Every Year

We all have that one friend who loves their birthday so much, they manage to extend it into a birth-week each year. As it turns out, Queen Elizabeth II is one of those friends. Kind of.  

The queen has not one, but two birthday celebrations every year. The first is her real birthday (April 21) and the second is her “official birthday,” held each year in June. While the exact date varies, the celebration is held on a Saturday and coincides with the Trooping the Colour. You may have thought that 2016’s seemingly endless celebration was only in honor of her milestone 90th birthday, but she actually celebrates it more than once every year.

But why? The reason is kind of hilarious, and so British.

Best-selling royal author Robert Jobson, who has chronicled the royal family for 25 years, told The Huffington Post that the tradition goes way back to 1748, in the time of King George II. “George was born in November, and felt the weather would be too cold at that time of year for his annual birthday parade,” he said. “So instead, he combined his birthday celebration with an annual spring military parade known as Trooping the Colour, in which regiments displayed their flags or ‘colours’ so soldiers would be familiar with them.”

In other words, the queen has two birthdays because of Britain’s notoriously unpredictable weather

Trooping the Colour, which will be held on June 17 this year, is a public affair. The royal family famously makes an appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the ceremony, to the delight of royal enthusiasts everywhere. But the queen’s actual birthday, April 21, is celebrated with much less fanfare, according to Victoria Arbiter, royal correspondent for CNN. 

“The queen is not one for fuss and so birthdays are generally marked quietly and privately,” Arbiter told The Huffington Post. “For the milestone birthdays such as her 90th last year the whole family will come together for a special dinner, but by and large the queen prefers a low-key affair.”

Knowing how much the queen loves cake, we presume there is one involved in the celebration.  

Arbiter explained that while it’s not required for the queen to have two birthday celebrations, “It is tradition. And if there is anything for which the royal family is most famous, it’s tradition.”

Leave it to the queen to prioritize a tradition that involves more parties. Now that’s our kind of monarch. Happy 91st birthday, Queen Elizabeth II! 

Check out some photos of the queen celebrating both of her birthdays below.

What John Legend And Chrissy Teigen Learned In One Year Of Parenting

It’s a big day for John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, turns 1 today!

What a year it’s been for the couple, who have opened up about parenting experiences like sleep deprivation, postpartum depression and shaming― on and off social media.

Happy birthday, Luna Simone!

A post shared by John Legend (@johnlegend) on

In honor of Luna’s birthday, we’ve rounded up some of her famous parents’ standout quotes about raising kids. Keep scrolling for some reflective, hilarious and always real thoughts on parenting from John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. 

On birth:

“No one told me I would be coming home in diapers too.” ― Chrissy

On the pressure to “bounce back”:

“Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we could ever need to be able to shed everything. So I think people get this jaded sensation that everybody’s losing [pregnancy weight] so quickly, but we just happen to be the ones who are out there. We have nutritionists, we have dietitians, we have trainers, we have our own schedules, we have nannies. We have people who make it possible for us to get back into shape. But nobody should feel like that’s normal, or like that’s realistic.” ― Chrissy

A post shared by John Legend (@johnlegend) on

On being a new parent:

“It just takes over your life when you have a child … I spent a lot of time at home with her for the first three months and with my wife, you know, it just humbles you. I think everyone struggles with being a new parent, everyone’s trying to figure it out and I think it’s a humbling process.” ― John

On shaming:

“Funny there’s no dad-shaming. When both of us go out to dinner, shame both of us so Chrissy doesn’t have to take it all. We’ll split it.” ― John

“I know that when I post something, if she’s in a car seat, I’ve got to be ready for the million people telling me she’s in the car seat wrong, even though she’s in there correctly. At this point, I know what they’re going to say before they say it. If I’m holding her while I’m cooking, or if I’m holding her within 10 feet of a stove top, I’ve kind of just come to expect it.” ― Chrissy

“Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers.” ― Chrissy

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

On equal parenting:

“[There are] a lot of people that still think it’s a woman’s job to do the child rearing. I think it’s something we should share.” ― John

On breastfeeding:

“I just think it’s so funny. Sometimes I’m Googling how to do it better. I’m like, ‘Is it working? Is it taking? I don’t think I’m feeling enough pain!’ You just get so confused about how it’s supposed to feel, and as hard as anyone said it was, I feel like it somehow managed to be harder.” ― Chrissy

“They just use you for your milk and you just feel like you are just a cow all day.” ― Chrissy

“Just spray tanned around my breast pump outline. The logistical challenges of a healthy beach glow while boobing are incredible.” ― Chrissy 

have you ever seen a more "why me?" face

A photo posted by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

On postpartum depression:

“Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my ­shoulders — even my wrists — hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me … I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of the role: ‘Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom.’” ― Chrissy

“You don’t see it coming. You’re not emotionally prepared for someone that’s going through a dark time as you’re welcoming this new life. When you don’t understand what’s happening, it’s a bit challenging to figure it out and you don’t know if it’s something you’ve done or some other ­reason why she’s not feeling well. Once you understand what the reasons are then it makes perfect sense and you can adjust accordingly.” ― John

“You should read about it and understand what it is and really just be there to help. You need to be present and you need to be compassionate. And we’re all learning and trying to figure it out as we go. At least do that and try to figure it out together.” ― John

Back on set for #lipsyncbattle season 3B!

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

On watching your baby grow up:

“I love seeing Luna grow and develop. I love all the new things that happen every week, every day even. And I LOVE when she smiles!” ― John

“I want to work less now, you know? I want to be home more, and be able to just help my wife with whatever she needs. Also, just be there to experience [Luna] growing up. I want to take them on tour. I want to be around.” ― John

On “doing it all”:

“My mom lives with us. I have hair and makeup people. I’m not getting up and doing all this by myself. If I’m not being done for something, I’m not going anywhere. A lot of hands go into it. We have help. It’s important for people to know that.” ― Chrissy

6 months old!

A post shared by John Legend (@johnlegend) on

On sleep:

“My biggest parenting conundrum: why it is so hard to put someone who is already sleepy to sleep?” ― Chrissy

“When Luna is awake I want her to sleep and when she is asleep I want her awake. This is my parenting life.” ― Chrissy

On date night:

“I’m not kidding, I go there not to watch a movie, I go there to sleep. I order food, lay on my side and shovel it into my mouth. I get the blanket and lay there and he watches the movie and I am passed out.” ― Chrissy

On hopes for the future:

“Just having the product of our love right in front of us, it’s a really powerful thing. I feel the responsibility that comes with that. We want to raise her into a great human being and hopefully, we can do that. It makes you kind of reprioritize what matters the most to you, and think about the kind of world you want to raise your daughter in.” ― John

On Thursday, the National Father’s Day Council said the football player-turned-media star has been named a 2017 Father of the Year honoree. He’ll be honored alongside J.C. Penney Co. Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Marvin Ellison at the 76th annual event, which will be held at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel on June 15.
Strahan has a successful men’s wear collection with Penney’s that started with tailored clothing, dress shirts, neckwear and accessories. It has since expanded into ath-leisure with T-shirts, polos, jogger pants, chinos, and last month added underwear.
Strahan, a father of four, is an Emmy Award winner and Super Bowl champion and currently cohosts ABC’s “Good Morning America” and serves as an analyst for “Fox NFL Sunday.” He’s also the host of the “$ 100,000 Pyramid” on ABC, which is produced by his own company, SMAC Entertainment, in association with Sony Pictures Television. Through SMAC Entertainment, he is coproducing “Religion of Sports,” an original documentary series that tackles sport’s cultural and spiritual impact in regions around the world. He is also executive producer of “Tackle My Ride” on the NFL Network,

A Year After Winning For Portraying A Victim Of Abuse, Brie Larson Hands Casey Affleck An Oscar

At last year’s Academy Awards, Brie Larson took home the Best Actress award for her performance in “Room.” The film by Lenny Abrahamson told the story of a woman called Ma, who we eventually learn had been imprisoned in a small shed years before by a man called Old Nick. Although Nick is only briefly seen, his presence is known by the abuse, sexual and physical, he inflicts on Ma and her young son, Jack.

The actress dove into the role, shutting herself away for a month and meeting with psychologists to understand the trauma of her character. She showed great empathy as she hugged each sexual assault survivor after Lady Gaga’s awareness anthem “Till It Happens to You” as they departed the stage at last year’s ceremony. 

During Sunday night’s Oscars, Larson took the stage again to announce 2017’s Best Actor winner. The honoree? Casey Affleck for his performance in “Manchester by the Sea.” The thing is, Affleck has been surrounded by controversy after 2010 sexual harassment allegations against him leapt back into headlines last fall.

The announcement made for one uncomfortable picture onstage. Although unlike the time she presented Affleck a Golden Globe in January, Larson chose to give the actor a quick hug as she handed over the gold statue.

Yes, Affleck took home an Oscar in spite of the allegations. (Sexual abuse allegations have squashed Oscar hopefuls in the past; “The Birth of a Nation” was pushed aside for its director’s controversy.) During the 2009 production of another film, Affleck allegedly made repeated sexual comments and unwanted sexual advances toward two women, a producer who he’d worked with him for 10 years and the film’s director of photography. They included the accusation that Affleck crawled into one woman’s bed as she slept.

The cases were settled out of court, and this awards season Affleck scored the BAFTA, Golden Globe, Critic’s Choice, Gotham and National Board of Review awards for the role as Hollywood seemed all too happy to overlook Ben Affleck’s brother’s transgressions. 

Then, at Hollywood’s most coveted event, an audience of millions watched a woman who made a wholehearted effort to become familiar with the experience of sexual abuse award a man who’s put all his effort into denying and brushing away accusations of sexual harassment.

It’s true that the allegations against Affleck are far from the scarring experience with which Larson became familiar. But still, although it’s customary for the year’s previous Best Actress winner to award the new Best Actor, the Academy chose to pair the two of them onstage instead of making an exception. In doing so, it sent a disturbing message.

In Hollywood, it seems, sexual harassment is not a serious matter.

Rihanna Is Harvard’s Humanitarian Of The Year

As if Rihanna hasn’t contributed enough to the greater good of humanity with more than a decade’s worth of irresistible pop bangers, it’s her work outside the recording booth that’s had the biggest impact. 

Every year, Harvard University selects a leader in public life who’s dedicated themselves to service by honoring them with the Peter J. Gomes Humanitarian Award. On Thursday, Rihanna was named the 2017 honoree for her charitable work promoting healthcare and education in the Caribbean, joining the ranks of actors James Earl Jones and Sharon Stone, as well as former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and activist Malala Yousafzai.

“Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” the Harvard Foundation’s director, S. Allen Counter said in a statement. 

In addition to her work in the healthcare sector, the “Love on the Brain” singer is being recognized for creating the Clara Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program, a foundation named after her grandparents that supports Caribbean students attending to college in the U.S. The university also notes Rihanna’s engagement with the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, which aims to ensure children in developing nations have access to an education. Just last year, she headlined the organization’s festival in New York, drawing thousands to Central Park in the name of ending poverty worldwide. 

Those lucky enough to live in the Boston area are welcome to witness Rihanna’s greatness in person when she’s formally presented with the award at Sanders Theatre on Feb. 28. Tickets are free, but bejeweled flasks will not be provided.

We’ve Got A Right To Be Mad About Beyoncé Losing ‘Album Of The Year’

No. Those who expressed their disappointment in Beyoncé losing the Album of the Year Award at Sunday Night’s Grammy Awards were not overreacting.

Yes, there are ostensibly “more important” things going on in the world than a multi-millionaire superstar losing one award on a night where she won two others, but it’s possible ― and even necessary ― to care about more than one thing at a time. 

And this is worth talking about. 

On a night that opened with a very political message from Jennifer Lopez who quoted Toni Morrison and said that “at this particular point in history, our voices are needed more than ever,” Beyoncé losing Album of the Year, the most important award of the night, felt like a much bigger loss than the usual award show snub. 

Adele’s “25” is a good album. It was an immensely successful album. After five years outside of the limelight, Adele came back with a highly anticipated record that sold over 8 million copies in the United States alone in 2016. “Lemonade” sold only 1.5 million.

If the criteria for Grammy wins was based solely on records sold, then maybe Adele’s win for Album of the Year would make more sense, maybe it would be easier to accept. But even Adele herself said on stage that she couldn’t “possibly accept this award,”(though she did) and that “The ‘Lemonade’ album is just so monumental.” 

She’s right. Again, “25” was a good album! But “Lemonade,” whether you enjoyed it or not, was a cultural event, a moment in which Beyoncé put all her personal, spiritual, and artistic cards on the table. It was a cohesive body of work that, as Beyoncé described it in her only acceptance speech of the night (for Contemporary Album) gave “voice to the pain,” and strength, of black women.

“Lemonade” said something and meant something to so many people, especially young women of color who saw themselves reflected in the stories and tableaux crafted by Beyoncé and her team (both in video and in song). Arguably the most popular black singer in the world had not only churned out a stellar piece of work, she’s also chosen for that work to be black as hellspecifically black, unavoidably black. 

Because of “Lemonade,” phrases like “Becky with the good hair” and “Jackson Five nostrils” and “hot sauce in my bag” entered the mainstream lexicon. While others tried to claim them, dismantle them, and rework them for their own use, they still remained to intrinsically ours, so intrinsically black. That was huge. That was a moment

Lauryn Hill was the last black woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys. That was in 1999. Since then, Beyoncé has become the most-nominated woman ever at the show, with a whopping 62 nominations. Of the three times she’s been nominated for Album of The Year, she’s lost out to Taylor Swift, Beck, and now Adele. As Adele said to the press Sunday night, “What the fuck does [Beyoncé] have to do to win Album of the Year?”

The disappointment and even the outrage flooding Twitter and Facebook in the aftermath of Bey’s snub should really come as no surprise. The Grammys have a long legacy of using important and popular black artists like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar to boost ratings while failing to give them the big noms and awards of the night. But, damn.

If even Beyoncé can’t get the top award of the night for a record like Lemonade,” after turning in an incredible performance (while pregnant with twins, no less), what exactly does that say about the black experience in America? Seriously? Yes, Beyoncé is the winner of many awards. She’s rich and successful and has definitely benefited in the past from her light skin and bleached locks. It’s interesting how, now that she’s incorporated her blackness and her politics more explicitly in her music, no longer here to just grind and sing catchy love songs to the masses, the systemic realities of being a proudly black woman in a white-dominated industry have come to light. 

What’s important to remember is that Beyoncé is an artist. And that’s what’s so frustrating about America’s love of black culture. So often, black entertainment is sought after and greedily consumed, but it’s delegitimized as art because of its inherent blackness. Look at the histories of black musical art forms like jazz and hip-hop, cultural phenomenons that were looked on as nothing but fads until they were validated by white audiences and artists who consumed and regurgitated them for the mainstream. 

That’s why “Lemonade” has meant so much to so many black people who needed (and continue to need) an album like this to exist. It’s nice that Adele said something in that moment up on stage. Though some chafed at her mention of what “Lemonade” meant not only to her but to her “black friends,” the album’s significance as a specifically powerful black cultural moment should have been acknowledged, and celebrated. It’s sad that it wasn’t the Recording Artists Academy that thought that was worth celebrating.

Sorry, You Don’t Actually Have A Year To Send A Wedding Gift

You may have heard somewhere that guests have up to a year after the wedding to send a gift to the newlywed couple. 

These days, though, etiquette experts insist that a year is way, way too long to wait.

“A year is a long time and a lot can change!” Amber Harrison of Wedding Paper Divas told The Huffington Post. “For example, it is totally possible that the couple might be making a big cross-country move or welcoming a new baby one year after the wedding, in which case receiving a wedding gift might feel out of place.”

So how long is the window, really?

“Guidance for proper timing of the gift is not as clear cut,” Harrison added. “Gifts are welcome and appropriate at any time before the wedding and even at the reception. It is perfectly fine for gifts to also arrive after the wedding, but it should be soon enough that the wedding is still top of mind. There are always exceptions to the rule, but sending a gift more than a month or two after the wedding is probably too long.”

There you have it.

Seven Steps to Completely Turn Your Life Around This Year

How can I change my life completely in the next year or two? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Max Lukominskyi, CMO at Sliceplanner, on Quora:

Changing your life completely is a huge step that requires a major effort. Nonetheless, the result is worth the struggle. Commit to this 7-step challenge and you will arrive at the desired destination already next year:

Begin With The End In Mind. While making a decision to commit to something, take a moment to get it crystal clear what change you would like to experience and what kind of person you would like to become within the next year or two. Imagine how you achieve your goal and try to design a blueprint of how you are going to move towards your desired destination. Then you will know exactly what steps to take.

Declutter Your Life. Slow down and take some time to simplify your life. Get rid of the things that have always been holding you back. Get rid of the stuff that associates with the life you would like to change. Stop comparing yourself with others and prioritize your goals. Clear your mind from the unnecessary thoughts and create more space in your life for new pure energy and massive wins.

Master Your Mindset. Embrace the truth: Everything worth doing is going to be neither easy nor fast. It holds true for this challenge as well. Therefore, be ready to face tough obstacles and deal with the unexpected issues. Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean you cannot succeed. It only means you need to be ready. Stop doubting your strengths. Make the goal to change your life completely your priority. Become obsessed. And get down to work.

Start Small. Your life is a set of little seemingly innocuous decisions, choices and actions. The repeated ones constitute your daily habits. These are the ones that eventually shape your life and define your level of productivity and success. Start small and strive to develop a good habit attitude by breaking bad habits and developing only routines that are the perfect fit for the life you would like to live.

Grow 0.1% A Day. Whatever you want to achieve, try to approach that goal with the constant pace: 0.1% a day. Since your personal growth has a compounding effect, these seemingly trivial steps will eventually allow you to grow 37.78% a year and become multiple times better than you are now already in two years. Commit to continuous and consistent growth. Do the things that take you closer to your aspirations every single day.

Avoid Negative People. Your environment is crucial. The chances are that you are not likely to experience any change if you stay in the stagnant and not challenging environment. You need to surround yourself with people who are better, smarter, stronger and faster. Choose your environment wisely and avoid negative people who are always too pessimistic and skeptical towards your goals. Get around greatness and make sure the people who you hang out with are supportive and inspiring.

Leave Your Comfort Zone. No change will come if your stay within your area of ease and convenience. All the opportunities for growth are far beyond your comfort zone. Learn to leave it on the consistent basis and do the things that scare you. Very soon you will find out that the life in your discomfort zone is not that frightening but rather full of new earlier unfamiliar, interesting and exciting things that indeed take you closer to your desired aspirations. Expand your comfort zone – change your life.

Nintendo Aims to Make 2-3 Mobile Games a Year

Nintendo has said that it plans to continue its recent foray into mobile gaming by releasing multiple smart-device games per year.

At a Q&A session for investors, president Tatsumi Kimishima said that “we plan to continue releasing two to three titles per year that consumers can enjoy as Nintendoʼs smart-device applications.”

It follows a successful first year in the market, with Nintendo’s own Miitomo, Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes all performing to or above expectations, alongside the huge success of Pokemon Go (which Nintendo part-owns).

Despite only releasing three of the five games it promised by March 2017 (with the fourth, Animal Crossing, delayed into the next financial year), Nintendo says its partnership with mobile developer DeNA is “going extremely well”.

The Year of Courage

2017-01-10-1484073658-7328710-Courage.jpg
Copyright: crazymedia / 123RF Stock Photo

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
―Anais Nin

Years ago I gave up New Year’s Resolutions, because they always fell apart for me by March! Now instead I choose a theme each year – something I want to ponder, practice, and live into.

2016 was the year of noticing. I practiced noticing all year and got better and better at it – noticing small things and large patterns, how beautiful aging faces really are, and what people leave unsaid.

I’ve named 2017 the year of courage.

As we grow older, courage sometimes shows up in ways that are different from how it showed up in our younger years. For example, it took courage for my friend Joy to decide to stop downhill skiing. An excellent skier, she has loved skiing. And she’s past 70 and notices her reflexes have slowed down. She felt vulnerable and less confident the last couple of times she skiied. So – does her decision not to ski shrink or expand her life? I asked Joy. Her response was interesting. She said that although she thought it would shrink it, she now feels it actually expanded it. A good friend of hers fell and broke a leg skiing last year. Recovery has been slow and painful. “I had the courage to stop before that was me,” she said. And she’s recently started cross-country skiing, which she’d never tried before. “It’s a whole new skill,” she told me. “And I’m loving learning something new.”

Maybe it’s also true that as we age, the courage we need is different – not physical daring-type courage, but emotional and relational. Think of the courage to keep learning, to acknowledge when we don’t know, to see the humanity in someone we disagree with, to forgive.

I can already think of many ways I’m hoping to have courage this year:

  • To say “yes” to opportunities, challenges, life
  • To say “no” when I don’t want to do something
  • Not to be so sure I’m right about things
  • To listen deeply to people who have different views of things
  • To take care of myself, including eating less sugar
  • To create and participate in things that are a lot of fun
  • To stretch myself – keep learning
  • To speak up in the face of prejudice and injustice
  • To speak openly of spiritual matters
  • To love people deeply and well

Anne Lamott calls me to find new depths of courage:

“If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must.
Otherwise, you’ll just be rearranging furniture in rooms you’ve already been in.”

What would be a good theme for your 2017? My friend Donna named her year “Simplify.” Before choosing courage, I considered curiosity, generosity and love. Somehow this quote tipped me to courage: “Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.” ―Baltasar Gracian

COACHING QUESTIONS

  1. Consider choosing a theme for 2017.
  2. What will your theme for the new year be?
  3. How might it make 2017 a better year?
  4. Have a meaningful, fulfilling New Year!

Lamar Odom Celebrates the New Year with Kids By His Side in First Instagram Post Since Entering Rehab

Lamar Odom is ending 2016 on the right note.

The former NBA star checked himself into a 30-day rehab program earlier this month to address the demons that led to his near-fatal overdose. And while he reportedly intends to be there when the ball drops, it appears he spent some time during the final hours of the year with the ones he loves most.

Odom, 37, posted a photo of him and two of his kids, Destiny Odom and Lamar Odom Jr., to Instagram Saturday morning — the three of them smiling in the sweet family photo.

“No better way to end 2016 than with my two favorite people,” he wrote, hashtagging the shot “#TheOdoms” and “#RichSoil.”

It was Lamar’s first Instagram post in nearly seven months.

In October 2015, Odom suffered a near-fatal overdose and was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel. PEOPLE confirmed that cocaine and opiates were in his system when he was admitted for emergency treatment and lapsed into a four-day coma at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Months later, in the summer of 2016, he was often spotted out at bars and strip clubs while spending time back home in New York City.

He’d been keeping a low profile since then, returning to Los Angeles this fall. The move was a positive choice for Odom, according to sources who told PEOPLE it was “a great thing” for him to be away “from the negative influences in New York.”

Also a positive choice? Checking into the substance abuse program — something another insider told PEOPLE was Lamar’s choice.

“This is a precautionary measure,” the source said, explaining that Odom was clean and not abusing drugs when he went in.

While in rehab, Odom’s protracted divorce from estranged ex-wife Khloé Kardashian, 32, was finalized. The couple tied the knot on national TV in September 2009, but the marriage fell apart after Odom’s cheating scandal and drug relapse.

Kardashian first filed for divorce in 2013. The stars finally both signed divorce papers in July 2015 — but a few months later, Kardashian called off their divorce following Odom’s overdose. She reinitiated divorce proceedings in May.

“He wants to stay clear and focused,” the source added. “With the divorce from Khloé being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up. He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better. His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”

“’s being very adult and mature and just wants to be a great father and brother, a better friend,” another source told PEOPLE. “The goal is for him to be inside during Christmas and New Years. Crazy things happen during those times. There’s been amazing reports from the doctors thus far. He’s doing extraordinary well, he’s in great spirits.”

In January, Odom is expected to appear on The Doctors for his first sit-down interview since rehab. No air date for the program has been set yet.

A source also told PEOPLE that the star is also planning on filming a reality show about his road to recovery.

ROYAL RECOGNITION: Queen Elizabeth II has released her annual New Year honor’s list, with names including Anna Wintour, Anya Hindmarch and Victoria Beckham set to receive accolades in the coming year.
Wintour, the British-born, U.S.-based editor of Vogue and Condé Nast artistic director will be named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire or DBE, for her services in the fashion and journalism industries. She joins women including Vivienne Westwood, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Zandra Rhodes and Natalie Massenet.
The DBE will be Wintour’s second honor, as she was named OBE, or Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, in 2008. The Queen’s cabinet office noted that this second, higher accolade recognizes Wintour’s ongoing contribution to the fashion industry, and her help for emerging designers.
“Anna Wintour has been a tireless advocate for established and emerging designers. In the U.K. alone, she has promoted the careers of such talents as Sarah Burton, John Galliano, Christopher Bailey, Erdem Moralioglu and Christopher Kane,” said a spokesman for the Cabinet Office, the corporate headquarters of the British government.
Hindmarch is being recognized for her services to fashion and will be named Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE. Hindmarch also

Start the New Year Right By Organizing Now

Organizing during the holiday…it’s practically an oxymoron, right? I know with all the whirlwind that leads up to the first of the year, the last thing we typically think about is organizing. However, with the New Year just days in front of us, you may want to consider how to make the last week stretch a homerun.

Here are a few things that I believe are helpful. And, really, these can lead you into the New Year with a plan. It may sound simple but I like to plan on a calendar. My plan consist of having both an immediate calendar and a long term calendar.

My immediate calendar consist of things that I need to complete leading up to the beginning of the year. This may be items like “attend Aunt Mary’s party” or “purchase new basketball shoes for my son’s end of year tournament”. It could also include tasks like packaging the receipts that I need for my current year’s taxes to ensure they are separate from anything that I will be tracking during the upcoming year. Either way, you get the idea.

My long term calendar consist of items that I plan to complete in the next month to six weeks. This includes items such as; inventory my product line or replace any of my tools that may be wearing out or need updating. Other areas of focus could be organizing my suite or even repainting it.

I typically ask myself two questions when determining which list an item should go on. First, is this an issue of urgency that has a timeline for completion? If the answer is “yes” then I place the task on my immediate calendar as long as it must be completed prior to the end of the year.

The next question that I ask myself is “what level of importance does this item have?” If the item is important but not urgent, I place it on my long term calendar.

For me, being disciplined enough to go through this simple exercise helps to alleviate stress as well as keep me on track. Look at this as a gift to yourself. This week, take 20 minutes for yourself and make note of the items that are urgent and important, then designate them on to the appropriate calendar. And most important, don’t forget to have a wonderful holiday!

Year in Fashion: Luxury Hits a Speed Bump

It has been a topsy-turvy year for luxury goods players. Decreased tourist flows and spending — notably from China — political uncertainty and terrorism fears have all contributed to making 2016 a complex vintage for high-end wares.
Third-quarter results from several players have pointed to an uptick in business, leading to more optimism, especially in soft luxury categories, but concerns linger for the once seemingly invincible sector.
“The first half of 2016 was the most challenging for the luxury sector since 2009,” observed analyst Rogerio Fujimori of RBC Capital Markets. “In Q3, we saw improving trends driven by the Chinese cluster, most notably buying in China due to a repatriation of purchases and in the U.K. due to a weaker sterling. Growth is still modest, but at least getting closer to 2015 levels.”
Fujimori predicts 3 percent average organic growth for the sector as a whole this year overall, driven by 4 percent gains in the second half compared with just 1 percent in the first.
“My sense is that the worst is behind us,” said Exane BNP Paribas managing director Luca Solca. “The comps were very difficult in the first half of 2016 — and they get substantially easier in the second half.

The Top Planners to Organize Yourself and Your Life for the Coming Year

I fully admit it, I am a planner addict. I have tried just about everyone out there, I will change one part way through the year because I find one that will better meet my needs, or I feel like my current one if getting too cluttered. I will never give up my physical planner for an electric one. I am tactile, I am visual, and I like being able to map out upcoming events and due dates on paper. I also like something that I can truly personalize to not only meet my needs, but to keep my inspired. So although I run through planners like water, there are a number that I have come across that I really like, should meet your needs, and I would go back to without hesitation.

1) Let’s start with my current obsession, the Passion plannerhttp://www.passionplanner.com ($ 25-$ 35). This is not a mere planner, this is a true book of planning, inspiration, goal setting, with areas for weekly focus, good things that happened that week, personal and professional goals, and an area called the “space of infinite possibility.” I LOVE this planner and could actually see myself building upon it and making it the whole year with it, which says more than I can express. This one just taps into my creativity and truly inspires me to motivate me and keep me going.

2) Erin Condren does the LifePlanner (starts at $ 55 and quickly goes up from there). While this is an investment, you pick your cover, you can personalize it, and you can choose the ring and cord color, whether you want your weeks vertical or horizontal, and has wonderful clip in and add-ons available. You can truly personalize this to meet most people’s needs.

3) Gallery Leather has regular year and mid-year planners that cover 18 months. While they have a professional planner, I actually suggest anyone getting the family planner. It has all the professional areas that you could ever want, plus it covers important areas like medical information, utilities, birthdays, credit cards, phone numbers, and lots of pages for extras, is very affordable ($ 30), and has a sleek design that fits almost any bag.

4) Draw Your Tomorrow Planner ($ 36) works well if you are looking for a straight to the point organizer. On top of that, there is also room to doodle, draw, inspire and entertain you. If you are visual, this is an amazing way to illustrate your goals and activities.

5) Adam Kurtz’s Unsolicited Advice Planner ($ 14) , is fun, funny, and practical. It is a very quirky planner that is off the beaten path. It serves if general purpose, but it keeps you laughing as you plug along. For the price, it seems well worth the investment.

6) Bando ($ 28 or $ 32) is a fantastic, fun and functional planner. I love it and was using it for a long time. It had everything I could need to organize and entertain me, great sections, sayings, stickers!!!a pocket for storage, monthly and weekly pages. It is tons of fun and has accessories that will have you exceptionally entertained and interested. The only drawback is the size. I literally has to get rid of a few of my bags, as it is very large, and would not fit them, however, I think the tradeoff was well worth it.

7) Modcloth is “Glam with a Plan ($ 22).” It is organization, gorgeous, has stickers!!!!, but still maintains a feeling of being a balance of fun and straightforward. Fashionable and functional, this is for anyone who wants that mix of beauty and high organizational value.

8) Kate Spade comes out with wonderful planners year after year, which I think keep getting better and better ($ 36). They are pretty and practical, have monthly and weekly sections, and an elastic band to hold everything in place. They have sections for notes, contacts, and laminated dividers. They manage to look good keep you super organized. They offer lots of great accessories and it is a very sturdy product.

9) Day Designer is a planner that is on a mission to get you organized and on your way to living with, “intentional, meaningful, and well-designed life.” They help you to set goals, and make plans to achieve them. They are cute,, practical, and help you develop great habits.

10) The Purposeful Planner is designed to be purposeful about all aspects of life. Something we can all appreciate about living with a purpose. There is no wasted time and energy with this planner, and you won’t regret the investment.

What’s The Best Thing The Duchess Of Cambridge Wore This Year?

The Duchess of Cambridge had quite a year. She worked to end stigma surrounding mental illness, showed off her photography chops, hiked a huge mountain in Bhutan without a visible trace of sweat, hung out with the Obamas, guest edited The Huffington Post, wore tiaras, shopped at a thrift store, took a selfie with Serena Williams… the list goes on. 

As usual, the former Kate Middleton did it all with the utmost style and poise. We should know, as we’ve spent many an hour this year tracking her every move

It’s difficult to choose a favorite between the many dresses she wore (and re-wore) in 2016, so we’ve laid out our top 11 for you to choose from. We’re partial to the white Self Portrait gown, but that’s likely because we now know Kate has at least one item in her closet that none other than Paris Hilton has in hers.

Year in Fashion: Remembering Industry Figures Who Died This Year

JAMES GALANOS
James Galanos, 92, was among the West Coast contingent of designers who dressed the society set in California, but who shot to fame when one of his clients, Nancy Reagan, became first lady. A loyal supporter, she often wore his gowns to state dinners. Shortly after the Reagans left the White House, Galanos left fashion. He spent the last decade or so focusing on art and photography.
“I had my career. I never looked back. I only look at tomorrow,” he told WWD in 2008.
Galanos was remembered as a consummate gentleman with exacting standards. Harold Koda, former curator-in-charge at the Met’s Costume Institute, said of the designer, “It was apt that he moved to Los Angeles because he had a sense of glamour that was different from the Francophile kind that East Coast designers would cleave to. On one hand, he was known for refined and subtle things, and on the other hand there was this boldness and this love of opulence.”
He founded Galanos Originals in L.A. in 1952; he designed for the movies and dressed the stars. He retired in 1998. In 2007, he received the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award.
“I had big ambitions to do what I

Sadly, ‘Puppy’ Isn’t Merriam-Webster’s Word Of The Year

Surreal” is Merriam-Webster’s (yes, the dictionary) word of the year.

The announcement comes after Oxford Dictionaries’ choice of “post-truth” and Dictionary.com’s choice of “xenophobia” for their respective Word of the Year picks.

Merriam-Webster defines surreal as “marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream,” with its synonyms being unbelievable and fantastic.

The dictionary publisher established their choice due to the high volume of lookups “surreal” received in 2016.

The word spiked after the Brussels terror attacks in March, the coup attempt in Turkey, the terrorist attack in Nice, and the U.S. election in November, according to the site.

Merriam-Webster editor at large Peter Sokolowski noted in a press release how unusual it was that the word had been so frequently searched.

“Historically, surreal has been one of the words most searched after tragedy, most notably in the days following 9/11, but it was associated with a wide variety of stories this year,” he said.

“Surreal” was an even more surprising winner for Word of the Year when you consider that both “puppy,” “flummadiddle,” and “fascism” were all trending this month. “Fascism” was leading the pack for a while, but in an effort to, you know, not have “fascism” be the Word of the Year, the folks at Merriam-Webster sent out a call to arms to ask people to search literally anything else.

But don’t worry: this election was not rigged. Merriam-Webster assured us all weeks ago that they’d select a winner appropriately.

“Our Word of the Year cannot be rigged. We encourage people to look up new words at all times, particularly if those words are strange 19th-century Americanisms or words for adorable doll-like creatures, but our Word of the Year is based on year-over-year increase in lookups,” they said on their site. “We look for a word which got a high number of lookups and increased dramatically in popularity when compared to previous years.”

The Year in Fashion: We Need to Talk About Kanye

This story was assigned shortly before Kanye West was admitted to the hospital Nov. 22 for what was to be a week-plus stay for some sort of mental breakdown, capping off what had already been an incredibly dramatic year with another very dramatic, and by all accounts serious, incident. It cast a different light on the events leading up to it, including two massive fashion shows for West’s Yeezy Adidas collection. Calling him crazy has new meaning and seems a bit cruel at this point, but that was the descriptor favored by members of the industry who bore witness to either show.
Both were wildly ambitious fashion week aberrations, the first staged in February at Madison Square Garden, where West showed his Yeezy Season 3 collection and played his new album “The Life of Pablo” for the first time before fashion and music press, as well as thousands of ticket-holding members of the public. They stood in line to buy West’s tour merch that would later drive runs on a slew of global Pablo pop-up shops. The floor of the Garden was filled with hundreds of models milling about in a scene reminiscent of a refugee camp, while the actual collection

John Mayer Calls The Day Taylor Swift Was Born The ‘Lamest Day Of The Year’

Happy Birthday, Taylor Swift … from everybody except John Mayer

On Tuesday, amid a barrage of birthday wishes from her squad and beyond as Swift turned 27 years old, ex-boyfriend Mayer slipped in the shadiest message in the game.

“Tuesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually,” he tweeted before deleting it once his followers put two and two together. Bad blood apparently flows both ways between the two songwriters. 

Of course, Mayer was probably referring to the Dec. 13 as the anniversary of Sir Francis Drake setting sail around the world, in 1577, or the day the city of Los Angeles dipped to a cool 28 degrees, in 1938. Both are so totally lame, right? 

Eh, nevermind. It’s totally about Taylor. 

Swift and Mayer briefly dated from November 2009 until their tumultuous breakup in February 2010, but their connection was strong enough to allegedly inspire the classic Swift ballad “Dear John.” 

(Lyrical excerpt: Dear John, I see it all now that you’re gone / Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with? / The girl in the dress / Cried the whole way home / I should’ve known.)

Mayer tweeted a follow-up to his original message to dismiss accusations that he’d knocked Swift on her birthday, writing that there was “absolutely no shade” ― before deleting that, too.

“NOPE. No. Nuh-uh. People I am 39,” he wrote. “I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade.”

Sure, John.

Federico Marchetti Wins Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Italy

MILAN – Federico Marchetti, chief executive officer of Yoox Net-a-porter Group, is the winner of the annual Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The award, which Marchetti received on Thursday evening at the Italian Stock Exchange, recognizes his “original intuition” about the future possibilities of the Web and his creation of Italy’s biggest tech firm, with a market capitalization of more than 3 billion euros, or $ 3.18 billion, at current exchange.
“Anything is possible,” said Marchetti. “I started from scratch and as an outsider in 1999, so I would like to dedicate this award to the younger generation. Italy is a country of innovators and talents, which has given us a great competitive advantage. It’s not a question of capitals, but rather of execution. People are more important than capitals, they are the ones that turn ideas into reality,” said the entrepreneur, who also credited his team for growing the group.
Marchetti spearheaded the merger between Yoox and Net-a-porter in 2015, listing it on the Italian Bourse as YNAP. As reported, a strong performance in all channels and global markets helped YNAP close the first nine months of the year with sales of 1.33 billion million euros, or $ 1.47 billion, up 12.8 percent compared with pro-forma revenues of 1.18

Stephen Colbert Goes Off On Oxford Dictionaries’ Word Of The Year

Stephen Colbert has beef with the Oxford Dictionaries’ new “Word of the Year.”

The “Late Show” host lightheartedly claimed he was “pre-enraged” with the institution’s editors for selecting “post-truth” as 2016’s most important word.

“First of all, post-truth is not a word of the year, it’s the two words of the year, hyphens are for the weak,” the comedian said. 

His second and more major concern, however, was that “post-truth” was “clearly a rip-off of my 2006 word of the year ‘truthiness.’”

Colbert went on to compare his decade-old definition of “truthiness” and the Oxford Dictionaries’ interpretation of “post-truth.”

And there are some very definite similarities in the words that can both be used to partially explain why the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union and what led Donald Trump to win the U.S. presidential election.

“I personally believe I’m getting ripped off,” Colbert later quipped. 

Check out the full monologue in the clip above.

A Year With Winker Leafkin

A Year With Winker Leafkin


Long ago, America was settled not only by Europeans crossing the great ocean, but small, enchanted folk like fairies, dwarfs, and elves. Deep in the forest, they set up hidden communities that spread and flourished. In time, it was possible to find, almost anywhere, swarms of fairies flying beneath the woodland canopy or tiny elves scurrying through the underbrush. And one of them went by the name of Winker Leafkin…. This book shares twelve exciting adventures of Winker Leafkin as this tiny elf plunges headlong into trouble and magically finds his way out again. Winker battles storm-tossed seas, gets mistaken for a leprechaun, and makes the fireflies dance. He is always hiding from humans, or escaping from them. With each predicament he finds himself in, the young elf grows a bit wiser than before, but that never stops the fun with Winker Leafkin. Each story relates to a month of the year. Many relate to holidays: New Year’s Day, Groundhog’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, April Fool’s Day, May Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Story Titles: The New Year Flute The Groundhog’s Shadow The Leprechaun’s Shoes The April Fool May Wood Night Midsummer Melody Yankee Doodle Spies There Once Was a Birthday Lesson Plans Snap Apple Halloween The Thanksgiving Place The Christmas Stone The book contains 25 color illustrations and makes great bedtime reading for children from five to nine. It can also be used in the classroom for fun holiday-themed reading. Each story has a short note concerning interesting facts about Colonial America or natural history.

In the years to come, the AI historians among our future robotic overlords will look back on 2015 with fondness. We were such an entertaining species, what with our misbehaving drones and detonating hoverboards and Ashley Madison hacking scandals.

The Year 3000: A Dream

The Year 3000: A Dream


First published in 1897, The Year 3000 is the most daring and original work of fiction by the prominent Italian anthropologist Paolo Mantegazza. A futuristic utopian novel, the book follows two young lovers who, as they travel from Rome to the capital of the United Planetary States to celebrate their “mating union,” encounter the marvels of cultural and scientific advances along the way. Intriguing in itself, The Year 3000 is also remarkable for both its vision of the future (predicting an astonishing array of phenomena from airplanes, artificial intelligence, CAT scans, and credit cards to controversies surrounding divorce, abortion, and euthanasia) and the window it opens on fin de siècle Europe. Published here for the first time in English, this richly annotated edition features an invaluable introductory essay that interprets the intertextual and intercultural connections within and beyond Mantegazza’s work. For its critical contribution to early science fiction and for its insights into the hopes, fears, and clash of values in the Western world of both Mantegazza’s time and our own, this book belongs among the visionary giants of speculative literature.

The Simple Beauty Resolutions Allure Editors Are Making This Year

Does anyone actually want to start their new year with daunting tasks, like learning a new language or forgoing gluten? Instead of overwhelming overhauls, our editors are planning simple beauty tweaks and little lifestyle improvements that are a snap to maintain—and are a hell of a lot more actionable than those grandiose-yet-vague mantras that also tend to crop up this time of year (looking at you, “live life to the fullest”). And besides, maybe we don’t want to stop replacing entire meals with cookies, OK?
The latest from allure.com
Getting a group of people to agree unanimously on something isn’t easy. Case in point: the 2016 elections. But in the Allure offices, we freakishly all agree that there were a number of new products this year that changed the course of our lives forever. OK, that’s dramatic, but they did give us cleaner hair, sharper cat eyes, and longer lashes than we’ve experienced in the past. These are the best new products we obsessed over in 2015.
