Someday when I am rich and famous, I am going to go to the Cannes Film Festival in the south of France and I am going to drink champagne 24/7 and get caviar facials and ride to every premiere at the helm of a yacht, dressed in finery like these 22 fashionable women…

Home Inspiration: 10 Tempting Ottomans

Ottomans aren’t getting the attention they deserve for being, um, brilliant. They provide extra seating, act as a footrest, and add interest to a room, plus, some even have storage options! Need a convenient place to put a drink? Top it with a tray. Unlike a couch, beautiful ottomans can be found for as little as $60. If you’re itching for an update, consider these furniture finds.

Frisky Eats: 10 Ways To Drink Your Beer And Eat It Too

Here at The Frisky, we spend a lot of time talking about wine – our favorite kindsthe crafts we can make with all the leftover corks, etc, etc — but that doesn’t mean we don’t love us some beer too! And beer, like wine, is a surprisingly versatile ingredient in the kitchen. You can use it to add rich, full flavor from everything to soups to seafood. Crack open a cold one and click through for some beer-based recipes, from the classics (beer cheese fondue!) to the novel (pale ale pasta sauce!) to the OH MY GOD GET IN MY MOUTH RIGHT NOW (beer-candied bacon!!!)…

14 Cool Foreign Words With No Direct English Translation, As Illustrated By Designer Anjana Iyer

“Sure, you can borrow that Junot Diaz book. It’s in the tsundoku pile on my desk.”

As a writer, I’m totally fascinated and obsessed with language, including the absence of specific words from the English language that match fairly common experiences. Like, for example: I have a growing stack of books that I buy and then don’t read — at least not for awhile. When I walk into a bookstore, I just can’t seem to help myself and I know I’m not alone — so why isn’t there a word to describe this impulse?

Well, turns out there is — in Japanese. Tsundoku is defined as “the act of leaving a book unread after buying it, typically piling it up together with other such unread books.” And here is how tsundoku is visually explained by designer Anjana Iyer, who’s embarked on a 100 day project to visually explain untranslatable words from non-English languages. Iver is on Day 41 of the “Found In Translation” series and I am obsessed. So many words I’ve been dying to learn — just in other languages.

Here are 14 of my favorite words that Iver has illustrated so far, along with how you might go about integrating them into your English vocabulary. (And be sure to keep an eye on Iver’s website for a new word and illustration every day!) [100 Days Project]

Fashion Math: Biker Jackets + Flowy Midi Skirts

Who says models aren’t smart? Adriana Lima gets an A+ in Fashion Math for this fantastic spring ensemble, combining a floaty below-the-knee skirt with a cropped moto jacket. Another way of looking at this equation: Tough + Feminine = Perfection. Get out your calculator, here are 10 versions to consider…

10 Bad-Ass Prefab Homes Made Out Of Storage Containers That’ll Make You Reconsider Your Current Living Situation

If you currently live in a big city and your last name isn’t Hearst or Rockefeller, there’s a good chance that you already live in a box — a really expensive box, at that. For me, I can’t tell you how many times my parents tell me the type of house I could afford in my hometown for the same amount I’m paying each month in rent in Los Angeles. (Hint: The same mortgage could probably land me a 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom abode with a screened-in porch and fenced backyard. I looked it up on Howard Hanna and nearly choked on my second cup of coffee.)

With that in mind, it’s no wonder so many people are embracing the pre-fab lifestyle by bucking money-saving traditions of fourth-floor walk-ups and random Craigslist roommates in favor of a true hybrid way of living. Not only does it save a shit-ton of money and space, but I’m guessing it decreases your carbon footprint by, like, generations. Still not convinced? Then take a look at what some talented and resourceful individuals made into a home by using a $2k portable storage unit as their framework.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be on the phone with PODS. [APlus.com]
