IKEA Photoshops Women Out Of Saudi Arabian Catalog

Photoshop, you beast! Look at all the problems you cause. I kid, I kid. The real problem here is Saudi Arabia's backwards attitude towards women, which is the reason why IKEA airbrushed all the women out of its Saudi catalog.

New Life Goal: Take A Leisurely Nap At IKEA

If you've ever been to IKEA, you've probably wandered into one of the elaborately staged bedrooms or living rooms, plopped down on a bed or couch and pretended--if just for a moment--that you lived there.

Foosball, cricket, video games and hot dogs — it's just another afternoon at Sydney IKEA's new "man cave," where weary husbands and boyfriends can unload while the womenfolk go shopping.

Nesting: I’m Back, Baby! Check Out How I’ve Decorated My New Bedroom

It took three months, 612 moving boxes (or thereabouts), and the very last smidgen of my sanity, but this weekend I moved out of my parents' house (where I'd been staying after a bad breakup) and back to New York City in a "single girl" apartment again.

Nesting: Bed Shopping Makes Me Want To Cry

Truth: I love me some shopping. But I'm the kinda girl who has always been on a Forever 21 budget. Thirty to fifty bucks here or there is typical; a few years ago I bought a $250 pair of high heels from J.Crew and I still feel guilty about it. When you decorate a new…

Like IKEA? Then You’ll Love …

IKEA has helped many young college students and families get their homes furnished on the cheap. It's also helped us organize our offices, furnish our bedrooms, stock our kitchens and prepare for the real world.
