Gloria Vanderbilt Remembered By ‘Nothing Left Unsaid’ Filmmaker Liz Garbus: ‘Totally Surprising and Wonderful’

She was all of those things in one elegant package, which fueled her status as one of the 20th century’s most talked-about figures. Vanderbilt, who died June 17 at 95, was remembered […]

Bobby Hundreds’ Not So Surprising Path From Streetwear to Author

LOS ANGELES — Vernon is an industrial city south of downtown filled with low-rise industrial buildings, where big rigs heave and clog major thoroughfares. Here, as well as places dotting the San Gabriel Valley, is the California apparel industry’s beating heart, and it’s here, in a nondescript, 90,000-square-foot building, that The Hundreds sits. Framed art adorns one wall of the lobby entrance. There’s a screen printer, a recording studio and space to host the occasional punk show, most recently New York hardcore band H20. It’s what cofounder Bobby Kim (or Bobby Hundreds) calls a Never-Never Land of Lost Boys and Girls, holed up in a world created nearly 16 years ago.
WWD caught up with The Hundreds at an interesting time in its history. The business blew up, cycled into a contraction, the staff had to be cut and stores closed, but in recent years there’s been another upswing. The Hundreds is no longer an emerging brand, but it hasn’t been relegated to old and irrelevant either. Now it’s stretching its legs into a new endeavor — helping other brands get off the ground — through the fledgling Second Sons services arm.
Kim, on a more personal level, is perhaps at an

The Surprising Story Behind Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s Recreated Honeymoon Photo

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are celebrating their 70th milestone wedding anniversary with the release of stunning new portraits, but it was on their 60th anniversary that they shared an even more touching photo.

The longtime royal couple recreated a photo they took on their honeymoon in November 1947 down to the very last detail. But what made the 2007 photo all the more sweet was the fact that it was entirely their idea!

When photographer Tim Graham met the royal couple underneath a large tree within the grounds of Broadlands in Hampshire, he found them studying the original photograph and positioning themselves in the same stances, according to British author Robert Lacey, who is the historical consultant on The Crown.

Sixty years after the original photo was taken, the Queen hooks her right hand through her husband’s arm as he gazes lovingly at his bride. And the monarch has the same sweet smile on her face all those decades later.

And the Queen definitely did her homework! In addition to the couple wearing almost identical outfits, the monarch is also sporting a strikingly similar brooch and necklace in both photos.

The newlyweds spent the first part of their honeymoon at Broadlands House in Hampshire, which was owned by Philip’s uncle, Lord Mountbatten. They then traveled to Birkhall Lodge, which is on Balmoral estate in Scotland.

As they gather to mark the 70th wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth, 91, and Prince Philip, 96, at Windsor Castle on Nov. 20 with a private dinner, the royal family will toast the latest amazing milestone in a lifetime of records.

Keira Knightley Makes Surprising Return In New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ Trailer

You best start believing in ghost stories, Ms. Turner. You’re in another one!

Despite previously denying a return to the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, Keira Knightley is back! The actress makes a shocking appearance in a new international trailer for “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” 

The thing about pirates is they’re fibbers, and Knightley sure proved that. So you know what that means …

The actress reportedly started filming for the first installment of the franchise when she was just 17, so it’s understandable why she’d want to walk away. It’s been around 15 years since then.

Perhaps she still has cursed Aztec gold on her, and that’s what’s keeping her around?

Whatever the reason, the return means Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp and Knightley are all reuniting in the film. And that probably indicates the script was good enough to get them there. Or, you know, the money was. (They are pirates after all.)

”Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” hits theaters May 26.

Bride Ends Wedding Night By Surprising Her Grandma At The Hospital

Bride Jessica Brown was heartbroken after her grandma Margaret Harris suffered a heart attack on Friday ― the night before her wedding to Tyler Brown ― and was unable to attend the celebration. 

The big day just wouldn’t have been complete without her grandma’s presence, so the newlyweds and other family members decided to end the wedding night by paying a surprise visit to Harris at the Jacksonville, Florida hospital where she was recovering 

“It was the equivalent of not having a parent there,” Brown told ABC News of her grandma’s absence. “This woman helped raise me and become who I am. She’s been there for everything.”

Still decked out in her wedding dres, the bride walked into her grandma’s hospital room and sat down next to her on the bed for a sweet, tear-filled hug. 

“My granny is the sweetest woman and has a hug so full of love that it makes the whole world feel OK,” Brown told ABC News. “To finally hug her lifted my heavy heart.”

Photographer Amanda Brown of Pink Shutter Photography, who is also the groom’s sister-in-law, documented the heartfelt moment in a series of photos.

Millennials Are The Least Religious Generation Yet, And Here’s The Surprising Reason Why

A large body of research shows that Millennials are significantly less religious than previous generations of young Americans. But as to whether the lack of religion seen in today’s Gen Y’ers (born between 1980 and the mid-1990’s) is transient or lasting, scientists aren’t sure.

But now a new review of surveys of more than 11 million adolescents, conducted over the course of almost 50 years, suggests that the religion divide between Millennials and their predecessors is a true generational one. According to the data, Millenials are much less interested in organized religion — and also less interested in spirituality in general.

“Unlike previous studies, ours is able to show that Millennials’ lower religious involvement is due to cultural change, not to Millennials being young and unsettled,” Dr. Jean Twenge, a psychologist at San Diego State University and of the researchers, said in a written statement.

Twenge is referring to studies like a 2010 Pew survey — which suggested that people may consider religion to be more important as they get older — and a 2014 survey that suggested Millennials do have a strong sense of faith in God, despite identifying less with organized religion.

Religion’s decline. For the new study, the researchers reviewed four surveys conducted between 1966 to 2014 and involving 11.2 million American adolescents between the ages of 13 to 18. They found that Millennials were less likely to attend services, less likely to say religion was important in their lives, and less approving of religious organizations than Boomers and Gen X’ers were at the same age.

Millennials “were also less likely to describe themselves as spiritual, suggesting that religion has not been replaced by spirituality,” Twenge told The Huffington Post in an email.

The decline in religiosity was found to be greater among young women than young men. The decline was also found to be greater among Whites than Blacks, and among Northeasterners than Southerners.

A cultural shift. What explains the religious declines? Twenge believes the changes may reflect a growing emphasis on individualism in U.S. culture.

“We found that religious involvement was low when individualism was high,” she said in the email. “Individualism is a cultural system that places more emphasis on the self and less on social rules. Individualism can conflict with religion, especially as religion usually involves following certain rules and being part of a group.”

As for whether the decline is a good thing or a bad thing, she said “I’d rather leave it up to others to decide.”

Whatever the reason, there’s no doubt “this is a time of dramatic change in the religious landscape of the United States,” as the researchers wrote in a paper describing the research, which was published online on May 11 in the journal PLOS ONE.

3 Surprising Beauty Benefits Of Lavender

Ah, lavender. Just thinking about the plant brings on feelings of relaxation. Sipping on tea made out of its leaves, or smelling its scent will calm your mind or help you sleep better. But did you know that you could also use this purple flowering plant for homemade beauty treatments?

Lavender has been used through the ages for of its cleansing and healing properties. Romans started using it to scent and purifying their baths centuries ago, ancient Egyptians turned its essential oil into a perfume for the mummification process and people burned bundles of lavender during the Great Plague of 1665 in London to try to ward off infectious diseases.

Whether used alone or with other soothing ingredients, there are plenty of reasons why you should keep this herb handy. Here are three surprising uses for lavender.

1. Acne treatment. Most people with acne don’t realize that a plant oil such as lavender won’t clog pores, according to Marina Peredo, a board certified dermatologist at SkinInfluence NYC. “The antiseptic and antibacterial properties may be a more natural solution to mild acne,” she says. To create your own facial toner, Peredo recommends combining a few drops of lavender oil to witch hazel. The lavender works to heal and treat breakouts, while the witch hazel tones your complexion. Dab the solution onto a cotton ball and apply to cleansed skin.

2. Scalp rinse. If you’ve tried just about every dandruff shampoo to relieve dry, itchy scalp, don’t give up hope until you’ve mixed up the lavender hair rinse by Amy Jirsa, a master herbalist and yoga instructor. In her book “The Herbal Goddess,” Jirsa shares a recipe that combines dried lavender steeped in boiled water and apple cider vinegar to make a nourishing rinse that will remove build-up, alleviate irritation and restore the natural pH balance of your scalp. Watch her explain the steps on YouTube.

3. Wound care. Suffering from a bug bite? Gary Goldfaden, a dermatologist and founder of Goldfaden MD skincare, suggests smoothing on a bit of lavender oil to reduce the swelling and minimize itching. Because of its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, it also helps to soothe wounds and improve the development of scar tissue, which can be beneficial to healing the skin.

Goldfaden notes that many people have allergic reactions to lavender, most commonly in the form of skin rashes. If you have more sensitive skin, Peredo recommends mixing it with natural oils or even your regular moisturizer. But you should always perform a patch test or consult with a physician before trying any homemade beauty recipe.

How to Eliminate Procrastination (The Surprising Strategy One Man Used)

In 2009, Fred Stutzman was a graduate student at the University of North Carolina and he was trying to grind out some important work on his thesis.

But there was a problem.

His favorite coffee shop, which had previously been a quiet sanctuary where he could escape distraction and get work done, had just added a new and very dangerous feature.

Wireless internet.

Now Stutzman found himself constantly distracted by the endless supply of entertainment and social media on the web — even if he really wanted to get something done. He tried disconnecting from the internet, but it wasn’t that simple. He was always clicking it back on to “take a break.” He was constantly fighting the urge to check his messages and updates.

Thankfully, Stutzman happened to be a programmer studying Information Science. When he went home that night, he decided to create a software program that would solve his problem.

The program was simple. You turned the application on, told it how long you wanted to focus, and it prevented your computer from going online for that amount of time. If you wanted to get back on before your time was up, you had to turn your computer completely off and reboot.

The program was called Freedom and not long after Stutzman created it, the application went viral. It was picked up by NPR, The Economist, The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, Time, and nearly every major news outlet you can imagine. More than 500,000 people downloaded it.

It seems that many people were struggling with online procrastination.

Why did Freedom work so well? And what can it teach us about sticking to better habits and mastering our willpower?

The Power of Decision Elimination

Making decisions over and over again will drain your willpower. This is true even if it’s the same, tiny decision — like constantly resisting the urge to check your email. (Another example: continually trying to follow a new, strict diet.)

You might be able to resist for five minutes or an hour or maybe even a week, but eventually, your willpower will begin to fade and you’ll give in. This is known as decision fatigue and I’ve discussed how it has a measurable impact on your willpower and the choices you make throughout any given day.

The Freedom app that Stutzman designed is effective not only because it prevents you from reaching the web, but also because it reduces decision fatigue. It eliminates your options and, as a result, doing the right thing becomes much easier. In other words, the application places a constraint on your behavior.

This brings us to an important point: constraints can make it easier to stick to good habits by eliminating the number of decisions you need to make to move forward.

Constraints are a Good Thing

People often say that they want options. When it comes to getting things done, however, options aren’t always a good thing. When everything is a possibility, it actually becomes harder to make the right choice (or any choice at all). This is the paradox of choice.

Meanwhile, when we place a constraint on ourselves, it can become much easier to get something done. This is especially true if it is a constraint that forces us to start small.

  • If you want to start exercising, set a rule for yourself where you are not allowed to exercise for more than five minutes. You have to stop exercising after 5 minutes. I talked with a reader named Mitch who used this strategy to make his first six weeks of exercise very easy and then gradually built up to doing more. He ended up losing over 100 pounds. (Nice work, Mitch!)
  • If you want to become more creative, you can use constraints to drive your creativity. For example, you could write a book by only using 50 different words. This is the strategy Dr. Seuss used to write Green Eggs and Ham. (Full story here.)
  • If you want to eat more vegetables, you could limit yourself to only one type of vegetable this week. By limiting the number of choices you have to make, it’s more likely that you’ll actually eat something healthy rather than get overwhelmed trying to figure out all of the details of the perfect diet.

We often think that we want an open road and the ability to choose any direction for ourselves. But sometimes, what we need is a tunnel that can reduce our choices and send us in a focused direction.

How can you eliminate the need to make the same decisions over and over again? How can you use constraints to drive your habits forward — even if it’s in a very small way?

P.S. If you are interested in more strategies for increasing your willpower and sticking to better habits, I explain all sorts of techniques and the science behind them in my Habits Workshop.

7 Surprising Myths About Success

2015-03-10-1425953570-9830597-getty.jpg

There’s more to success than what we’ve been sold.

We’ve been told it’s an exercise in elite living, measured by dollars and followers–that if we have enough sports cars, mansions, and paparazzi, then we’re someone. If not, we’re told to settle with envying success from afar, or to just strive for the rest of our lives. For those who believe it, this garbage is killing the dream.

I’m so tired of seeing news, articles, and books calling out “success” as something reserved for big-name celebrities and out-of-reach rock stars. Why be limited to such a shallow definition when you were destined for so much more?

Let’s get back to the real meaning of success by getting clear on some popular myths about it:

#1. Success is all about money. The lifestyles of the rich and famous don’t compare to the lifestyles of the real and authentic. Those who keep score in life based only on their bank account will find themselves bankrupted in the big things. Success is all about service.

#2. It takes forever to get there. Success can be experienced every day in sharing a smile, completing a project, and serving someone. It’s about thinking differently every day about life.

#3. Success is measured by followers. Measuring success by views, likes, and followers is the fast track to missing meaningful moments in life. Yes, it’s great to influence people, but success is about so much more. There’s no way of knowing how much impact real kindness, generosity, or courage can have in someone’s life.

#4. It’s all about you. Ever heard this one? You won’t find successful people focusing only on themselves. They live and breathe service to others. They don’t think less of themselves, they just think less about themselves and more about powering others around them.

#5. Success is about winning the political game. Some people believe that the only way to win is to act like someone else. Successful people stick with their real identities and don’t make them a secret. They’re authentic, and filled with a brightness of possibilities. They’re bold in what they believe, in how they behave, and in what they ultimately become.

#6. It takes sacrificing your values. Your values are part of the success equation, and successful people know they shouldn’t be ignored. They get and stay connected to their deepest and best self through meditation, prayer, whatever it takes. And it makes all the difference.

#7. Success means no “you” time. Success is about escaping the demands so often swarming around you. Burying the cellphone and stepping into places where pondering is allowed, where you can get deep clarity, and connect to yourself and others.

What myths have you heard about success? What above stands out most to you? What can you do to become truly more successful today?

Conventional wisdom holds that the Internet makes the world flat and reduces friction, erasing the impact of the physical world on our buying habits.But Wharton professor and marketing expert David R. Bell argues that the way we use the Internet is largely shaped by the physical world that we inhabit. Anyone can go online and buy a pair of pants–but the likelihood that we would do so depends to a significant degree on where we live. The presence of stores nearby, trendy and friendly neighbors, and local sales taxes play a large role in the decision-making process when it comes to buying online.” Location Is (Still) Everything” is for anyone who wants to understand the patterns underlying how and why we use the Internet to shop, sell, and search, including entrepreneurs, students, and investors.
