Posted on August 28, 2023



PinLa Terraza Rooftop Bar, Restaurant and Lounge – Madrid, Spain


We regret to inform you that it is MONDAY once again. We don’t know what to tell you, darlings. This keeps happening and no one seems willing to do anything about it. We have no choice but to spend the day in a fabulous rooftop LOunge. It’s messy business, but someone has to do it. We saved you a seat. Hell, we saved you all of the seats.


From Jackie Kennedy’s Watch To Princess Diana’s Cross Pendant, Inside Kim Kardashian’s Museum-Worthy Jewellery Collection
It seems that Kim Kardashian has flown all the way to Tokyo in order to get her hands on the dazzling diamond and gemstone necklace from Chanel’s spring/summer 1995 collection, complete with interlocking Cs and tear-drop pearls, that features in Greta Gerwig’s record-breaking Barbie movie.
For those of us who have been following Kardashian’s growing jewellery collection, it comes as no surprise that she would want to acquire the statement piece so soon after the film came out.


Bob Barker, Longtime Host of ‘The Price Is Right,’ Dies at 99
The winner of numerous Emmy Awards, he was almost as well known for his advocacy of animal rights as he was for his half a century as a daytime television fixture.

Mr. Barker, who was also a longstanding and prominent advocate for animal rights, was a fixture of daytime television for half a century — first as the host of “Truth or Consequences,” from 1956 to 1974, and, most famously, starting in 1972, on “The Price Is Right,” the longest-running game show on American television.


Relatable, real and rooted: Why Keke Palmer is truly an inspiration
“Baby this is Keke Palmer…”

Hollywood has a revolving door of talent where fame’s clock ticks louder than applause; not for our Keke Palmer though.
Our triple-threat (singer, dancer, actress), multi-hyphenated, talented queen’s first on-screen role was in Barbershop 2: Back in Business at only nine years old, and then she stole hearts all over the world with her debut leading role of Akeelah on Akeelah and the Bee. After the movie came out, subscriptions for spelling competitions must have sky-rocketed as she really made spelling bees an It girl aesthetic.


The best luxury bars, restaurants and beach clubs in Ibiza
From late-night hotspots to relaxing beach-side eateries

There’s a reason that Ibiza remains a popular summer destination. Aside from the beautiful beaches, world-class nightlife and reliably warm temperatures, it just has a vibe; a stirring, magnetic force (perhaps a literal one, if you’re interested in geomagnetic energy – more on that below) that draws the crowds back year after year for a dose of well-earned hedonism.


6 Weird And Wonderful Aesthetics That Have Defined Summer 2023
Summer holidays are always an excuse for an indulgent social media post (or 10), but this year the holiday aesthetic has gone into complete overdrive. It has been the year of the gimmick (we have TikTok to blame for this), where rather strange movements like “Tomato Girl Summer” and “Rat Girl Summer” have come to the fore. When it comes to summer holiday tribes in 2023, it’s no longer a case of whether you decamp to a beach in France or to a villa in Italy.

Netflix’s original and acquired films have gotten a lot of flack over the past few years.

Adele’s Las Vegas Residency Marred By Back Pain, Chattering Crowds
The legendary singer said a chronic condition means ‘I have to waddle’ across the stage, or must sit down completely.

It’s been a long road to Las Vegas for Adele, with postponements and delays snarling her much-anticipated residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace for nearly a year.

I Asked Four Former Friends Why We Stopped Speaking. Here’s What I Learned
I needed answers. Concrete ones—not those generic suggestions that I “put myself out there” or “just give it time.” Everyone around me had managed to hold on to friends throughout their lives; everyone seemed to be on girls’ trips and boozy brunches; seemed to have a tribe of confidants ready to drop everything for them. And here I was, a lonely, overworked 28-year-old who spent way too much time in her apartment, wondering why she didn’t have any of that.

How Does Dating Change in Your 30s?
I spent the first half of my 30s in a long-term relationship. Having now been single for over a year, a friend recently asked me the seemingly innocuous question: So, what are you looking for? “Well…” I said, taking a deep, anticipatory breath. “I’m looking for a guy who’s ready to commit, who is handsome, kind, successful, fit, creative, funny, in therapy, taller than me, can fix things around the house, who wants a family but ideally doesn’t have kids yet, and who’s between the ages of 36 and 43—ya know, give or take a year.” My friend looked at me like he feared for my life. “So, you’re basically trying to hit the world’s smallest target?” he asked.


Love Champagne? Try These 25 Bottles of American Sparkling Wine
It’s never been a better time to try bubbles made back home.

American sparkling wine, long considered by some as a little cousin of sorts to Champagne, is very much a star in its own right.

Why the Color of Your Mug Can Make Your Coffee Taste Better
Brunch just got a little bit more interesting.

If you could change the way you taste and find new pathways to appreciate what’s on your plate, wouldn’t you want to? In her new book How To Taste: A Guide to Discovering Flavor and Savoring Life, Mandy Naglich breaks down what taste is, and how you can fine tune your tasting abilities. […] The number one takeaway you’ll find from Naglich’s book is that the way something tastes to you isn’t just dependent on what’s physically on your tongue. Taste is multisensory; What you touch, see, smell, and hear can all impact the flavor you perceive.

The Emotion behind Van Gogh’s Brushstrokes
