Style Stealer: Kate Bosworth’s Casual & Cool Plaid Look

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I really cannot get enough plaid flannel. It’s not just that I’m feeling ever nostalgic for the ’90s — the way flannel is worn now is much more put together than the baggy, shapeless plaid flannel I wore to my first Pearl Jam concert in 1993.

Amanda Seyfried’s Dog Finn Gets A Little Frisky

In addition to the obvious perks — the best kibble money can buy, designer collars, a jet-setting lifestyle — there are downsides to being the dog of a famous celebrity.

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Binge On “Sons Of Anarchy,” Read Kindred & Make Mulled Wine

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.

Etsy Spotlight: Wear The Universe Around Your Neck

This week’s Etsy Spotlight was a total no-brainer. My parents got me this beautiful galaxy print infinity scarf from Etsy shop ShadowplayNYC for Christmas, and I’m so obsessed with it I can barely talk about anything else.
