Johnnyswim's Georgica Pond makes marriage sound wonderful - just ask TV's hottest couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines. "The album has been playing on repeat in our car since it came out in October," Chip says. The Gaineses' HGTV show, Fixer Upper, made ceramic farm sinks and "shiplap" paneling en vogue. Now they're promoting their favorite duo Johnnyswim as headliners at "Silobration" (the annual fan festival held at their company headquarters in Waco, Texas). Joanna says she and Chip can't get enough of the singers' new album. "Johnnyswim's music speaks to us on so many different levels," she says.

“Ok Ladies, Now Let’s Get In Formation: Why Do Celebrities' Fashion Lines Only Empower The Women Buying The Clothes, Not Making Them?
Huffington Post - 7 months
At the Republican Convention two weeks ago, Ivanka Trump wore a dress from her own clothing line to introduce her father. After Ivanka tweeted out the link to buy the dress the next morning, some were quick to point out that the dress, sold at Macy’s and Nordstrom’s, wasn’t “Made in America” — a jab at her father and his politics. With some research, I learned instead that the dress was labeled “imported”: its origins were masked by the fast fashion system. Even the brands and retailers responsible for making and selling the line would have trouble tracing where and how their product was made. The Ivanka Trump clothing line is made by G-III, a company which also produces lines branded Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole and Jessica Simpson. While their names are stitched on the clothing, most celebrities like Ivanka have little to no involvement in the design or actual production of the clothing. For Ivanka,  “her arrangement with G-III is … a licensing agreement; the company sell ...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
When stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham or Angelina Jolie talk about how hard it is being a working mom in Hollywood, you can guarantee there will be a collective eye roll from every non-famous working class mom out there. How hard can it be when you're a multi-millionaire and have an entourage of staff - think personal chef, personal trainer, hair stylist, make up artist, driver, pool man, gardener, holistic therapist, yoga teacher and a team of attentive nannies - to get through the day. What makes Margot Black's hilarious new memoir, "Where's My Award? How to Get Baby Barf out of a Red Carpet & Other Tales from a Working Mom in Hollywood" so refreshing is that she is just like you and I (even if she lives less than a mile from the Hollywood sign).

It opens with the birth of her son Jett, who is now eig ...
