Serve Dharma Food And Drink At Your “Lost” Series Finale Party

If you’re hosting a “Lost” season finale party this Sunday (or attending one), make sure to pick up some Dharma Initiative snacks and beverages for the gathering. Your local grocery store doesn’t carry the brand? No worries. Just print off some handy-dandy labels for products from beer and wine to chocolate bars and cashews, and your guests will feel like they’re stuck on an island with a scary smoke monster.

Cute As A Cupcake

Yesterday we saw a sweet pair of ice cream cone heels that we’d actually wear. This cupcake dress, however, might be too cute for its own good. Maybe for Halloween? [devaniweaver/Etsy] Keep reading »

Wedding Gift Ideas For When There’s Nothing Left On The Registry

When couples get married, they generally register at a few stores for plates, kitchen appliances, and other household items so their wedding guests can buy them exactly what they need (or want). For the most part, these lists are extensive enough that it’s not hard to find a salad spinner, table setting, or set of towels that fits into your budget. But if you wait until right before the wedding to purchase a wedding gift, a $400 mixer might be all that’s left on the registry. Since we’ve experienced the desperation that comes with shopping for a couple when everything on their registry has been taken, we asked a few of our recently married friends what route wedding guests should go when this happens. Read their advice after the jump. Keep reading »

Hermes Origami Set: The Luxury Item We Hope No One’s Buying

Luxury brands make everything, even basic items like playing cards, fancier and pricier. It bags, we understand (sort of), but high-end origami sets? Hèrmes now offers one, which includes sheets of scarf print origami paper, a hand-stitched black saddle leather envelope, and black lacquer box, all for the ridiculous price of $750. We’d rather spend the money on a trip to Japan, where we’re pretty sure they sell origami paper that’s just as lovely. [Luxist] Keep reading »

Quotable: Chris O’Donnell Chose Not To Be A Playboy

“I knew when I got into this business I couldn’t have it both ways: I could live the playboy lifestyle, which is not a bad thing to do, or have a traditional family life, which is how I grew up.

— Chris O’Donnell, on his decision to be a nice guy, even turning down film roles because, he said, “I knew if I continued on that track, I probably wouldn’t have gotten married.” [Redbook] Keep reading »

Women Board Members In Fashion, Beauty, And Retail Industries On The Rise

Women have made huge progress in the workplace over the last several decades, and the findings of a new study commissioned by WWD prove that we’ve come a long way, especially in industries with largely female consumers.

The study looked at how many women serve on the boards of various fashion, beauty, and retail firms in the U.S. and other countries. Among a selection of 17 of those types of companies in America, women represent 23.8 percent of board seats compared to 21.3 percent, the average for the Dow 30. Keep reading »
