The 'Stranger Things' Kids Are The Breath Of Fresh Air We Need Right Now
Huffington Post - about 1 year
If awards season has taught us anything so far, it’s that the obsession with “Stranger Things” has caused a very real fascination with the kids who star in the hit show. Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo and Millie Bobby Brown were the epitome of squad goals on the SAG Awards red carpet Sunday night, not just because they’re the coolest kids on the planet but also because they were some of the best dressed.  Schnapp wore a cobalt blue velvet Mango suit with a Dolce & Gabbana shirt and matching blue J.Crew shoes, Wolfhard wore Topman, McLaughlin wore a bespoke striped tux and Matarazzo wore J.Crew. As for Brown, she wore a custom Giorgio Armani gown sketched for her by Armani himself and single handedly brought headbands all the way back.

This Is What Women Really Think of Your Cologne
Huffington Post - over 1 year
By Max Berlinger for GQ. A trio of models weigh in on fall's newest scents. While choosing a fragrance may be an incredibly personal endeavor — like picking out your outfit, or what you do in the shower — there's no denying that it effects those within your direct vicinity. And most importantly for guys, it has an impact on women who may come within sniffing distance. Knowing that, we brought in a trio of models to GQ HQ (nice work if you can get it, eh?) to smell some of the latest colognes to hit the market and tell us what they think about them, and about men's fragrances in general. Here's what we found. 9 New Colognes To Help You Smell Your Best This Fall Lisa Marie Jaftha Agency: Major Instagram: @lisamariejaftha Do you like it when a guy wears cologne? Yes, of course. I love Christian Dior Homme. Why? I don’t know. I smelled it on someone a year ago, and I was like, “Please tell me what that is,” and he wouldn’t. But I kept pestering him. I think it...

The Best Airline Amenity Kits Worth The Long Flight
Huffington Post - over 1 year
For Allure, by Jenna Mahoney. The friendly skies are anything but these days. Flight delays, endless lines and increased baggage loss all sully the allure of air travel. While some airlines may treat passengers more like cattle, there are some that are bringing the glamour back. Passengers in business, first, and sometimes economy classes receive stylish packs of beauty products to counteract the tiring effects of a long flight. From partnerships with Acqua di Parma and Christian Lacroix to Birchbox, these are are our favorite in-flight amenities. British Airways Travel fun fact: The British Royal family flies commercial. And when Duchess Kate and Prince William jet around the world, they do so on the U.K.’s premier carrier British Airways. Like Burberry and high tea, there’s something so quintessentially English about this airline, which is one of the world’s largest. So it should come as no surprise that the amenity kits presented to the upper classes brim with U.K.-favor...

7 Beauty Editors Own Up To Their Most Obnoxious Beauty Habits
Huffington Post - over 1 year
You’re likely all too familiar with white male privilege, but you may not know its very, very distant relative: beauty-editor privilege. Sure, it’s a lot less pervasive and problematic in the grand scheme of things, but it’s still real. And if you’re peeking in from the outside, it doesn’t look good. You see, beauty-editor privilege is the result of having jobs that allow us access to hundreds of amazing creams, lipsticks and perfumes — all of which we get to test-drive without ever taking out our wallets. We get jaded, we get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff in our medicine cabinets, and we start using that expensive hair mask as shaving cream. We think we’re being innovative; everyone else thinks we’re being wildly out of touch. But give us a bit more credit! Here we are, owning up to the obnoxious habits we’ve developed through our line of work. You’re going to roll your eyes, yes, but if you’re a product hoarder like most of us, maybe (just maybe) you’ll see hints ...

What This Princess Did After She Lost The Use Of Her Legs Inspired Obama To Meet Her
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Once upon a time, there was a princess. She was blonde and feisty and, like many other children around the world, she was blessed with everything she needed for a healthy life: Two sparkling eyes, a healthy heart, a lovely head (filled with the will to fight), two hands, two arms, two legs and two feet. One day, she fell prey to a sickness that might as well have been a curse sent by a wicked witch. When she woke up, she found that she had lost her hands, arms, feet and legs: Everything had been amputated to save her life. The princess was only 11 years-old when she had to learn to live without her limbs. She had lost everything that most people take for granted: Two hands, two arms, two feet and two legs. The story goes that as soon as she left the hospital, she pursued physical therapy with enthusiasm and, as soon as her prosthetics were ready, returned to her great love. Her love wasn't a handsome prince (many princesses know how to make do without one), but a sport: Fencing. She...
