SACREBLEU! Calling All Fans Of Tintin The Little Reporter.

2016-09-25-1474845157-8104276-ok.jpg

I grew up in Paris reading the classic Tintin et Milou albums. I learned about some countries I had never been, and the best curse words I had never heard from Capitaine Haddock.

Nobody in real life used his blasphemous words. As a kid, I did not know nor realized that Tintin was in fact a slightly racist and homophobic young man. To me he was simply a brave explorer with a malicious dog and some flamboyant friends – think of the opera diva named La Castafiore, constantly and deafeningly out of tune!

I had all 22 available titles written by Belgian artist Hergé (1907-1983), including “Tintin au Tibet”, but my collection, passed down from my parents to my older brothers, and then to me was missing “Tintin chez les Soviets” – as that one had been censured and no longer for sale. Over 300 characters came alive in the 23 illustrated books, and many are still to this day part of many French school-age kids education.

I dreamed of going to the moon, about mysterious islands, desert treks, Chinese adventures, buried treasures, sunken ships, temples of gold, oil trade, pharaohs, Indians, magicians, Arabs, missing jewels, shady characters, deadly poisons, and wonderful endings.

The Tintin books were never disappointing, they always ended well, saved all good people, vanished (not killed really) bad ones, almost always saved the World. I learned about far-away countries, forgotten locales, strange planets, and Tintin was showing me the way in geography better than any school books ever did (my mother was a geography/history teacher and would likely turn in her grave if she was to read this.)

Milou (known as Snowy in America) made me chuckle at every page, with his tendency for being clumsy, smart, funny, and a practical helping hand to his young master Tintin. The genius of Professor Tournesol and the far-fetched idiocy of the Dupont/Dupond twins were mesmerizing to me.

The Capitaine Haddock had a serious problem with rum. He definitely drank too much, and the books were good at showing the bad side effects that alcoholism can have on people. His swearing was incredibly creative, with words I had never heard in the French language – and that I am not about to translate!

Tintin’s creator was from Belgium, but used French to write his beloved books. His name was Hergé, which stands for George Remi, his initials: R + G. Beginning at the end of the 1920s, the illustrated books often denotes of some incorrect political views about the then USSR, Red China, and other repressed countries.

2016-09-25-1474844052-5965874-tintin.jpg

People from then Congo (Africa), American Indians, cowboys and Chinese all have been stereotyped and shown under bad angles and blinded looks, but this never impeached my own joy at reading the books at a very young age, as I was never able to see all the racism and discriminations of the stories.

It’s only as an adult that I realized all of these problems with my adored childhood companions, and when time came to teach my own children, and to let them enjoy my books collection, I made sure to warn them about the very sad discrepancies in the stories.

Still to this day, I enjoy a good sitting with the books. The one missing from my Tintin collection, the very first published, was found a few years ago at an antique dealer store in Provence, where I had to buy it, despite the enormously exaggerated sticker price.

Now I have them all and they will stay on my bookshelves, part of my legacy for generations to come. I moved many times so far in my life, different countries, continents, cities, and my Tintins always followed, I would never leave them behind anywhere.

Tintin was a reporter and I always wondered if he was the one responsible for my own passion for the printed words and my newspapers career. I even had several Milous!

Now, a new exhibit at the Grand Palais in Paris is about to open and promises you will have fun with the show. Reviewing the entire career of Hergé and the many facets of his incredible success, the exhibit highlights with true colors the masterful publishing work of the vivid author.

Hergé’s influence came from several masters of classical art. Translated into hundreds of languages of the World, many have changed some of the names to resonate more with each culture, but Tintin is almost always Tintin!

How To Tell If You’re A Good Candidate For Couples Counselling

Many individual clients I know ask me if they and their partners would benefit from couples counseling. I have discussed how to convince a partner to start counseling, that men can be averse to counseling and why, and what types of problems can be helped by couples work, but I’ve never talked about the personality/relationship markers that make some people better suited for couples counseling than others.  So here’s the lowdown on traits that I feel correspond with a better couples counseling outcome, so you can end up as happy as this free png image I found online.

couple-294284_640

  1. Openmindedness. The more open you are to hearing and understanding divergent perspectives, the better couples counseling will work for you.  If you haven’t changed your mind about anything since your early 20′s, unless you are in your early 20′s, couples counseling may not be a good first step.  Individual therapy would be more productive.
  2. Love. If you feel like you don’t love your spouse at all anymore, couples work may be moot.  We couples therapists can and do work well with couples who “love each other but aren’t in love,” or who are bored or monotogamous. Even hatred can be worked with.  But indifference to whether the person lives or dies (except that if they died, your kids would be upset) is harder, although not impossible, to work with.
  3. Motivation aka Some External Reason To Stay Together.  You may be staying together for the kids, because you’re religiously averse to divorce, or because you just don’t want to be a quitter.  But there needs to be some reason, aside from inertia, that you’re still together.  Higher levels of motivation to remain married yield much deeper and more productive work in counseling.  Whether your reason is a house, a dog, kids, or even finances, it really helps to have some actual, tangible, mutually accepted reason that divorcing would be a Big Deal.  I have seen couples with no real “reason” to be together, and they are much less likely to benefit from counseling, since both of them frequently have one foot out the door.  Religion, family, and all sorts of societal strictures used to work to keep people together through the ups and downs of marriage.  Now, it’s commonly kids/pets and a mortgage.  Whatever works. Even a small amount of motivation can be harnessed, whereas even a magician cannot make much of two people with zero desire to work hard on their connection.
  4. Attraction. It really helps couples counseling feel less like business consulting if least one partner feels physical desire toward the other. Attraction can even function as the external reason to stay together, for at least the individual who feels it most strongly.

There you have it.  If you were wondering if couples counseling would help you and your partner, and you hit at least two things on this list, try it.  Every marriage has peaks and valleys, and a skilled therapist can help you ride yours out. (Incidentally, these same traits will make you ideal candidates to benefit from my email book, as well.)  And till we meet again, I remain, The Blogapist Who Says, If You Have All Four Things On The List, I Totally Non-Scientifically Bet You’ll Be Happier Within Eight Weeks Of Your First Session.

7 Reasons You Should Go Old School And Use A Shoe Cobbler

Footwear is incredibly important. Your shoes impact your posture, how you walk, and how you present yourself.

Why not take care of something that’s responsible for so much?

This is where a cobbler comes in ― and no, we’re not talking about a dessert.

There are a lot of benefits to taking your shoes in to someone who practices the time-honored profession of shoe repair. It may seem antiquated, but trust us: Your feet and wallet will thank you for the extra care.

Here’s why a cobbler is the best:

1. Repairing your shoes can save you serious cash, especially if your shoe collection is pricey. 

If you spend a ton of your hard-earned money on creating an awesome shoe collection, you’re going to want to preserve that investment. A little known fact is that better quality shoes can be resoled anywhere from three to ten times. So, ladies, those stilettos? Even if they’ve been shredded from weddings or long nights out, the soles can probably be swapped out.

The wildcard on most shoes is the upper part, under the ball of your foot. If the uppers get wrecked ― which usually happens on a more cheaply made shoe — those babies are likely a goner.

In general, most cobblers will tell you that if a repair costs less than half the price of new shoes, it’s more cost-effective to just repair the old ones.

2. You’re helping the environment.

Shoes are difficult to recycle because they’re often made of different plastics, fibers and other materials. By repairing them, you’re keeping them out of landfills.

If you have to trash your shoes, donating to charity shops like Goodwill or Salvation Army is a good bet, according to TreeHugger. Even if the shoes are in poor condition, those shops will send the items that can’t be sold (in the U.S. or other countries) to textile recyclers. Nike also features a reuse-a-shoe service, recycling footwear of any brand.

3. You’re likely supporting a small business.

Many cobblers are small business owners and have been running their shops for years. They help bolster the communities they’re a part of and they can offer customized, personal service where larger stores can’t. 

4. Even your new shoes can get soled to prevent damage from ever occurring in the first place.

Cobblers offer (seriously underused) preventive care. They can put rubber soles on the bottoms of new, leather-soled shoes to keep them in good condition.

Leather wears down very quickly,” David Mesquita, owner of Leather Spa in New York City, told Woman’s Day. “Thin rubber soles, which are available in many colors, will blend right in with your heels or flats. Not only will they prevent the leather from wearing down, but they’ll also keep water from seeping into the soles, which can travel to the upper part of the shoe and create even more damage.”

Cobblers can also put on inserts that’ll ease the pain of a tight strap or heel, heel grips on the bottom of treadless shoes, and lifts on the bottom of low-to-the-ground shoes that are susceptible to fast damage. 

5. Cobblers enable you to snag the gotta-have-them pair of shoes that are maybe a little too small or too big.

Cobblers have stretching machines that can increase length and width. They can even stretch the front of a shoe where it squishes your toes. For shoes that are too big, they can insert thicker soles, tongue pads or heel grips.

For those having issues with boots fitting their calves, cobblers can also take those in or let them out a bit.

Despite all of this wiggle room, be cognizant of materials when thinking of getting them stretched or stuffed with inserts. If a shoe is leather or suede, odds are good you can stretch them a bit. Patent leather or other plastic-y materials? Move on to another pair, friend.

6. Cobblers will make your shoes capable of weathering the weather.

You can buy a water repellent for your shoes in most big box stores, but a cobbler can also apply the stuff if you’re not down to DIY. Spraying your suede or leather shoes will keep the elements from ruining the inside of your home where you spray it.

7. Your feet will be more comfortable.

When you break in a pair of shoes and they mold to your feet like a second skin, they sort of become your go-tos. Why not put in some dough to keep those babies in your rotation? Or, a better example, what about those high-priced shoes that make you feel like a million bucks and look great? Taking care of those shoes instead of hoping that lightning strikes twice is a much better bet.

Blood-Soaked Zombies Spark Police Alert On English Highway

Two actors driving to a job in full zombie make-up sparked a police alert after other motorists mistakenly thought an assault had taken place.

Concerned drivers called the cops after seeing what they thought was a blood-soaked man biting a lady and assaulting her on the M62 motorway near Manchester, in northern England, on Sunday evening.

After a patrol car tracked their vehicle down, officers from the North West Motorway Police Group were relieved to discover the unidentified pair were simply covered in fake blood.

Officers were sent out to search for the vehicle as it is a serious incident,” a Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman told the Manchester Evening News.

“But when they found the car in question, they saw they were covered in fake blood,” she added. “Thankfully the man and woman were extras on their way to a job and it was a funny ending really.”

It’s not known which television show or movie the duo was working on.

George W. Bush Interrupted Obama To Ask Him To Snap A Picture Of Him And It Was Amazing

When you’re the president of the United States and leader of the free world there are undoubtedly certain perks, like flying in your own airplane or being able to skip traffic in your motorcade.

But that doesn’t mean you’re exempt from snapping a picture of someone else every once in a while. On Saturday, following the dedication of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, former President George W. Bush asked President Barack Obama to snap a picture of him with someone attending the ceremony.

Obama was shaking hands when Bush tapped him on the back and made the request. After fumbling around with the phone a bit, the president happily obliged.

The 10 Best Beauty Instagrams of the Week: Adele, Behati Prinsloo, and More

Photo: Courtesy of Adele / @adele

As if to welcome the fall equinox, this week’s best beauty Instagrams offered a heavy dose of the glamour that we tend to crave with the changing season. Case in point: Adele. The songstress traded her recent no-makeup makeup selfies for a return to the cat-eye, power brow, and contour that define her onstage persona, posing mid-application as her beauty squad finished off her Boston concert look.

Nocturnal Animals newcomer Ellie Bamber channeled sparkle-strewn sensibilities—lids heavy with a coating of warm-toned glitter that offset the actress’s burnished lengths—while Alexa Chung modeled her shimmering, feminine, fresh-off-the-runway London hair accessory. Elsewhere, Willow Smith piled her dreadlocks high and paired them with a seriously fresh complexion and simple septum ring.

Karlie Kloss kept up her outdoor #FriYay fitness routine, though it was model Amanda Murphy’s on-the-road, big-sky antics (and wind-blown lengths) that have us searching for ways to keep summer’s insouciance alive. Last but certainly not least, Behati Prinsloo posed for one last baby-bump shot, featuring her own beachside silhouette and an aptly captioned bomb emoji—just days before welcoming baby daughter Dusty Rose. Something tells us her new family addition will prove every bit as photogenic.

Ask the Experts: Bridal Hair and Makeup Tips

2016-09-22-1474554938-9724483-Bhldn42Jen_Huang002782R1010.jpg

When it comes to your wedding day look, choosing the right gown and accessories is only half the battle. The other half? “What on earth am I going to do with my hair?” It’s a question made all the more significant by the pressure of wedding photos that will live on for duration of your lifetime (nbd, right?). And makeup! What about makeup?

Resources such as Pinterest and Bridal Beauty Magazine are great places to gather beauty inspiration, but asking the experts helps turn inspiration into reality. We teamed up with noted Southern California hair and makeup artist Chiali Meng and renowned wedding photographer Jen Huang to share their insight on looking like the best version of yourself for your big day.

What should brides do to care for their tresses leading up to the big day?

Chiali: Get a good hair cut with long, graduated layers that frame the face, especially if you’re in the process of growing your hair out. Layers will help your stylist build the architecture of your look and maximize the overall effect. Also, treat yourself to a rich, multidimensional hair coloring, especially if your locks are dark. The lighter tones will showcase the intricacy of your hairstyle and look better in photographs.

How should brides to go about picking the perfect wedding hair accessory?

Chiali: Find something that reflects your unique personality and style, but keep your dress design in mind, along with the proportion of your hairstyle, and how your hair accessory will stand out. Your headpiece should complement your look, but not overwhelm or dominate.

Jen: My personal favorite hair accessories are the timeless ones – as with photography, you don’t want to embrace every trend that comes along, rather stick to simple designs that will remain classic years down the line. The Laurette Combs (pictured above) are a great example of this.

Hair and makeup trial appointments — are they necessary?

Chiali: Absolutely necessary! I can’t emphasize how important having a trial is. This is the time when you can consult, play around with different ideas and looks, and get on the same page with your stylist. You want to feel confident and look your absolute best on your wedding day. There’s no time the day-of to play the guessing game!

Jen: It’s important to choose the hairstyle or makeup look that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable. That might not always end up being what you originally planned, so a trial is a great idea. Updos are great for those who know their hair may fall flat if it is loose and down. But a casual curl is one of the most loved styles I see with my brides because they feel like themselves and not overdone. It’s important to choose a look that fits with your overall wedding style and a trial will help you figure out what that is!

When it comes to wedding makeup, what’s the one thing you wish brides knew ahead of time?

Chiali: To be very upfront about your likes and dislikes and give your makeup artist guidelines on the direction of the look that you want to achieve. Visual cues are very helpful in helping us nail your vision!

Jen: As in all relationships, communication and trust is key, and an open, respectful line of dialogue is very helpful in achieving a bride’s desired look. I always advise my clients to choose a makeup artist who makes them feel so comfortable they don’t even have to look in the mirror to check the final outcome — like they could step out of the room and feel confident and beautiful the entire day.

What are some of the hair and makeup products every bride needs? Do you have any tried and true go-tos?

Chiali: The Hard Formula eyebrow pencil by Shu Uemura has been in my makeup kit for twenty-something years. It is an absolute must-have and creates the most natural looking brows. I have every single color that I mix and match for my brides. I also have to make sure they remain flawless through all kinds of weather and emotions, so I turn to MAC Liquidlast Liner. No raccoon eyes here! Two of my other favorite products are the Shiseideo Eyelash Curler for the long-lasting, perfect curvature it creates that really open up a bride’s eyes, and NARS Luster Blush for its versatility and ability to flatter all skin tones!

What are the biggest hair trends you foresee in 2017?

Chiali: I’m loving the effortless and touchable, textured hairstyle that’s trending right now. It’s romantic and fashion-forward and such a nice departure from the tight, princess barrel curl that was so popular in weddings for a long time. We will also see lots of twists and knots, with the braid trend remaining strong well into 2017.

Jen: While trends may come and go, remember that makeup and hair are only one part of a larger day, a day whose purpose is to celebrate love and put your best foot forward on the start of this brand new chapter of your life. Choose a look that speaks to who you are, who you want to become, and what type of couple you wish to remain.

Read This First Before Your Second Honeymoon

2016-09-21-1474416843-753585-Depositphotos_10302608_s2015.jpg

It’s a well-known fact that I’m a big proponent of “seconds”–all sorts of seconds, from second helpings (that’s where the “big” comes from) to second chances. So preparing for a second honeymoon with my second husband should have been–what else?–second nature to me. Or so I thought when he made the surprise announcement last month on our tenth wedding anniversary. I swooned like a schoolgirl as he detailed how we’d spend two glorious weeks together in France and Italy where they practically invented romance. So what if we were well into the second half of our lives (unless, of course, we live to be 140), we were still young at heart, right? Right. But along with that lovely sentiment, allow me to offer a few tidbits I learned the hard way on our second half second honeymoon that may come in handy when planning yours.

1. Stay Young at Heart, but Pack (Both) Your Arch Supports

My feet began morphing into my mother’s about ten years ago–bunions, fallen arches, planter fasciitis–and finding comfortable, somewhat fashionable shoes that accommodate my various orthotic devices has been my life’s mission ever since. I felt like Cinderella the day I found a cute pair of black flats that were roomy enough to hold both my arch supports and my feet in reasonable comfort. I snapped them up and took them with me to Paris. Fast forward to the Champs Elycees, where the pain in my left foot completely sidelined me after a very short stroll. Leaning against, appropriately enough, the Arc de Triomphe, I removed my shoes and saw the problem. Apparently I’d gotten distracted when packing and had only put an arch support in the right shoe! So my first purchase in the fashion and style capital of the world was a pair of Dr. Scholl’s gel insoles at a pharmacy. So glamorous.

2. After a Certain Age, Jet Lag Is More Like Jet Sag

It had been a couple years since my last transatlantic flight, but I was fully prepared to have my circadian rhythm thrown off for a few days. I was not, however, prepared to have my jet lag express itself so conspicuously as upper eyelid sag. At my age, the only place I want to see droopy puppy dog eyes is on a puppy dog–and definitely not drooping back at me not in the mirror. I swear that whole first week, it would have taken a system of pulleys and levers to hoist my upper lids to an “awake” position. I took to hiding behind my sunglasses even when it wasn’t sunny. Like inside…at night…in the shower.

3. There’s Something Rotten in Venice, but It’s Not the Canals

You know that god-awful smell that wet clothes take on when left sitting in the washer for two days? Well, that’s the smell that accompanied us across Europe for two solid weeks during the hottest months of the year. The night before we left for our trip, I threw my default shoes, the white sneakers that allow me to walk pain-free for miles, into the washing machine and set them out to dry. The next morning they were a wee bit damp, so I wrapped them in a plastic bag and packed them. Never Do This!

Unwrapping them when we hit Paris was like opening the Pandora’s box of odors! Gagging on the noxious fumes, my husband and I raced each other to the nearest air vent. Since laundering the shoes was not an option in our hotel room, we tried to neutralize them with everything from perfume to deodorant to medium-hold hair spray. The only thing that contained the stench was keeping my feet in the shoes, so I wore them A LOT. When I took them off, I had to wrap them in plastic and shove them in the farthest corner of the room so we could breathe freely. After one particularly sweaty day of walking in Venice, I had to hang them outside the bathroom window all night!

4. Fling Caution to the Wind, but Not Your Nightie.

Now let’s face it, soaking up all the culture and history is fine and dandy, but this is a second honeymoon, dammit, so let’s get down to the romance. Believe it or not, it is possible to still feel romantic despite the unpleasantries of smelly shoes, fallen arches and sagging eyelids. I’ll leave to your imagination the maneuvers involved to accommodate one partner’s bad knees and tennis elbow and the other partner’s positional vertigo and carpal tunnel syndrome. What I want to warn you about is getting so caught up in the moment that your slinky new negligee, the one that tastefully camouflages all your figure flaws, gets flung across the bed and you completely forget about it until the next night when it’s nowhere to be found. This is because it got wrapped up in the bed sheets and carted off to the bowels of the hotel laundry facility from which it will ne’er return. And you paid full price for it and everything!

So, there you have it, my friends. Learn from my mistakes and make your trip a smashing success. Of course, don’t forget to take your sense of humor along with you, too. You just may need it.

Happy (Second) Honeymooning!

What about you? Have you taken or do you plan to take a second honeymoon? I’d love to hear your tips, tales and anecdotes, so join the conversation!

Drop Everything: Prince George And Princess Charlotte Have Arrived In Canada

Well this is awfully exciting, eh?

Another royal tour of Canada kicked off adorably Saturday afternoon as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte arrived in Victoria, British Columbia. 

The trip marks Will and Kate’s second trip to Canada ― the first happened in 2011 ― and, even more exciting, little Charlotte’s first-ever tour with her family. The former Kate Middleton looked flawless as usual in a navy Jenny Packham dress and the queen’s much-borrowed maple leaf brooch, but it was a very curious George and one-year-old Charlotte who really stole the show. Just look at this wave! 

The next seven days are chock full of activity for the family, who will visit five communities within British Columbia, attend a reception with Canadian youth, visit the Great Bear Rainforest and more. They’ll also spend Sunday with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie, which can only mean countless photo ops in the very near future ― and the most consecutive Charlotte sightings since she was born in May 2015. 

Take in all the cuteness below.

Good News! Kim Kardashian Made Up Her Mind And She’s Voting For Hillary Clinton

Kim Kardashian has made up her mind about who she’s voting for in the upcoming presidential election. On Saturday, the 35-year-old took the time to explain the context in which she told Wonderland magazine that she was “on the fence,” about who to vote for ― implying that she was considering voting for Donald Trump. 

In a post on her website and app, Kardashian made it clear that she intends to vote for Hillary Clinton. 

“There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly,” Kardashian wrote. “But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.”

Kardashian explained that she had a “long conversation” with her stepparent Caitlyn Jenner, who encouraged her to research the candidates and their policies before making a decision. 

“And so that’s what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion,” the reality star wrote, ultimately coming to the conclusion that she “without a doubt” stands with Clinton. 

 “I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”

Kardashian did, however, appear to leave herself a little wiggle room in case Trump wins:

Now that I have made my choice I want to be clear… I would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs. I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.

Well, that’s all cleared up. 

To read Kardashian’s entire post, head over to her website.

Dina Brodsky: ‘The Secret Life of Trees’

While pregnant with her son, artist and miniaturist Dina Brodsky began drawing trees as a way to keep making art while no longer painting. Selected works from the portfolio of 126 images that resulted are now on view at New York’s Bernaducci.Meisel Gallery, running concurrently with a show by Dina’s sister Maya. Executed primarily in ball-point pen, along with traces of other media, Brodsky’s trees present a dazzling array of formations and textures.

They are both a diary and a rumination on the infinite variety of nature.

John Seed Interviews Maya Brodsky

Tell me a bit about where and how you grew up

I was born in Belarus, but my family immigrated to the US in the early 1990s and my formative years were spent in Massachusetts, between Boston and Amherst, where I attended college. As to how I grew up, I read a lot and compulsively made lists of the things I read about. My family talked a lot: I suppose that between talking, reading and list-making I became the person that I am.

When did you realize you were an artist?

My first week at university, at 3am, while working on a homework assignment for a foundations art class that I took because I thought it would be an easy way to pass the time before I could drop out of university and hitchhike around Europe, which was my plan at the time. It was a charcoal self-portrait: I had never used charcoal before, and wasn’t particularly good at it, but I was more absorbed in the portrait than I had been in anything, possibly ever. That was when I realized that this is what I want to do, for as many hours as possible, every day of my life, this is who I want to be. That was almost exactly 16 years ago, and I still feel this way.

I ended up hitchhiking around Europe as well, mostly to draw old buildings and go to museums.

What kind of experience did you have at the New York Academy and who were your mentors?

The New York Academy was an absolutely amazing place. It was everything I ever wanted from my education, and, after my undergraduate years, where I had very little guidance in the kind of art I wanted to learn to make, it was a sort of epiphany. I was incredibly hungry for information, and both the professors and my fellow students were incredibly knowledgeable, hard working, and had similar beliefs about what constitutes art that I did. As for mentors, all of the professors were fantastic.

Wade Schuman was one that was particularly inspirational, for the scope of his knowledge, as well as simply how much he cared, both about art and his students.

How did you decide to begin your series of trees?

A lot of my sketchbook drawings through the years are from long distance cycling trips I have taken, where I would mostly camp in the forest. Trees were a good thing to sketch as a warm-up in the morning, and I have a lot of them in my sketchbooks. The tree drawing project I just finished “The Secret Life of Trees” began when I was pregnant the summer before this one, and was getting progressively less mobile (and unable to use oil paint).

I started drawing from my sketches and photos I took while traveling. Then people I knew—friends and family at first, then people I only knew through social media—started sending me photos and stories of their favorite trees -some sent poems, as well as tree related traditions specific to their part of the world. The project continued after my son was born, as a way to vicariously see bits of the universe I wouldn’t otherwise have access to. In a way it was a sort of tree diary of that year of my life, during which my life changed dramatically.

Your trees are done mainly in ballpoint pen: how did you choose that medium and how do you make it work for you?

Honestly, ballpoint pen is the only drawing tool that I’m comfortable with. It’s been my favorite and only sketching instrument for over 10 years, although these are my first ballpoint drawings outside of my sketchbook. I like the level of control you can get with ballpoint, also the fact that it doesn’t allow for erasure creates an immediacy of sorts: I have to truly focus on the drawing in front of me.

Tell me about one image in particular

Tree #60: These are poplar trees from France, sent my way by the painter Brian Neish, who I have never met in person, but corresponded with over the last few years. He sent me some photos of a poplar grove, along with some paintings he made of the same place. He also told me of an old tradition from the part of France he lived in: when a farmer’s daughter is born, he plants a poplar grove. Poplars take 16 or so years to reach maturity, and, when a daughter reaches 16 and is considered of a marriageable age, the poplar grove becomes her dowry.

What have you learned while working on this series?

I learned that I work best, and think most creatively when given a reasonably strict structure within which to operate. the project evolved organically throughout the year, growing—sort of like a tree itself—in directions I wanted to explore, experimenting with different varieties of trees, different textures of paper, different mediums, as I started to add watercolor, gouache and finally oil to the ballpoint.

Also that the deeper you go into a subject, the more interesting it becomes- the more I drew the trees, the more I learned about them, I started seeing the trees around me in an entirely new way.

Tell me a bit about your life and interests outside of art.

Right now my life outside art is mostly centered around meeting the various needs of a very small child. Before that, my interests vaguely revolved around reading, cycling and lurking (which is the way I think of just observing the world and people around me). All of these feed the art I make, also, other than reading, my sketchbook has always accompanied me during my lurking and cycling.

Is there anything else you would like to mention? I think it is my sketchbooks, more than anything else that have shaped the way I see the world. All of my thoughts, observations, travel and ideas end up as my sketchbook pages, which in turn inform my finished work.

The Cool Street Style Trend Rihanna and Kendall Jenner Have in Common

Rihanna

Not many of us would dare to go sightseeing in a lime green Vetements skirt suit à la Rihanna, or go braless in a sheer top like Kendall Jenner . But not every attention-grabbing celebrity look involves outré fashion trends. Turns out, the jumpsuit is the easiest superstar-worthy look to pull off. The workwear-inspired piece happens to the stealth hit in an off-duty Hollywood wardrobe. Kendall Jenner put her stamp on it this past summer, stepping out in a sleeveless utilitarian white jumpsuit, which she elevated with a pair of slick black patent leather ankle boots. It’s a look that’s easily repurposed for fall with a bomber jacket.

If you’re feeling a bit more daring, like Hailey Baldwin, opt for a loose-fitting plaid version and bare a little shoulder. It will lend some femininity to the men-at-work boilersuit. Rihanna certainly knows how to transform the military-inspired jumper for a night out. Her trick? She throws on heels and a dash of red lipstick. Looks like slipping into fall with one cool piece has never been easier.

Guy Surprises Girlfriend With Proposal And Wedding On The Same Day

September 16 was a day Catie Bossard will never, ever forget.

Her boyfriend Zach Baldwin proposed to her last Friday during a weekend getaway in Vail, Colorado. Moments later he outdid himself when he revealed that he had also planned a wedding for that very day (yes, you read that right!) with the help of their family and friends.  

In a post on the Love What Matters Facebook page, Catie shared the story of her dual engagement-wedding day and expressed her total gratitude for Zach and all of the other people who made it possible. 

Here’s how it went down. After first popping the question on a deck overlooking the Rocky Mountains, Zach revealed the second part of the surprise. 

“He told me, ‘Everyone is here but I have a second question for you.’ I look up and see his family and a few friends come running down to celebrate,” Catie wrote in the post. “’I have a second question. Would you want to get married today? Everything is set up. Your dress, plans and everyone is here.’”

That’s when Catie saw her mom, sister and other relatives running towards her. She immediately burst into tears, but her response was an emphatic, “Let’s do it!”

Over the next few hours, the couple got ready for the ceremony. Everything was taken care of: hair, makeup, the suit and most importantly, the wedding dress.

“Everyone we tell this story to is so concerned about THE DRESS!” Catie wrote. “My mom and sister picked out a dress and my two best friends Alex and Amanda picked out another. It was easy. Tried them both on and went with the one that I felt most comfortable in. Oh, and it was beautiful.”

Four hours after the proposal, the couple was married. One of Catie’s best friends officiated the ceremony and Landon Momberg, a friend of Zach’s, was there to photograph the occasion. 

An impromptu wedding might not be for everyone, but for this bride, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Catie wrote: 

I will never fully understand what was going on in Zach’s head but I am certain he knows me better than anyone in this world. I never wanted a big wedding. I never wanted to spend hours finding a “perfect dress.” I never wanted to make a guest list and think I left someone out. I never wanted to plan this “perfect wedding” that I never wanted. What I wanted was to marry my best friend. I wanted exactly what Zach gave me. Love. Friendship. A sense of peace when he’s around. Marriage is so much more than a wedding or party.

Below, more photos from the couple’s big day:

Bill Maher Slams Donald Trump For Blaming Charlotte Protests On Drugs

Bill Maher tore into Donald Trump for suggesting that drugs are “a very big factor” in the Charlotte protests on Friday.

The “Real Time with Bill Maher” host compared the GOP presidential candidate’s asinine reaction to the demonstrations, which erupted in the North Carolina city following the fatal police shooting of 43-year-old black man Keith Lamont Scott on Tuesday, to those of a “90-year-old aunt.”

Watch the clip here:

Of course Donald Trump is making the situation better, as he always does,” Maher said, sarcastically. “He (Trump) actually said this, ‘if you are not aware, drugs are a very big factor.’”

“He’s like your 90-year-old aunt, ‘they’re all taking something,’” the comedian added. “Yeah, they’re taking something alright — bullets.”

Trump connected the protests to narcotics, seemingly without any evidence to support his assertion, during a rally in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. “Drugs are a very, very big factor in what you’re watching on television at night,” he told the crowd.

But Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts later told CNN it was “presumptuous” of him to have done so “without having thorough conversations with some of the folks who are here on the ground and are really aware of what’s going on and what the reasoning is.”

Check out Maher’s monologue in the clip above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly serial liar, birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

The Silk Road: Perfumes and More from the East at Pitti Fragranze

2016-09-24-1474700527-9519929-LRB_2.jpg

Image courtesy of Richard Lüscher Britos

I look to the East for my inspiration, because I believe understanding — not indifference — promotes peace.

I was reminded of this recently when I heard Italian journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci say, in an old TV interview, that we “don’t need soldiers and armies but we must use the power of passion if we wish to combat hatred”. Her rhetoric was aimed at the Muslim world, where she prophetically perceived, years before IS and the likes, misdirected passion aimed at creating hatred and wars.

While I don’t agree with our respected Italian journalist on a lot of points, I do wholeheartedly take her words as gold when it comes to combating hatred. It’s only a positive, passionate heart that will see this chaotic world as a grand possibility, a chance to discover something magical and wonderful rising from its metaphorical ashes. And at our most basic level, it’s our senses that allow us to perceive the humanity around us — the sights, sounds, touches and smells of the world.

It is on this last sense, the olfactory one, that I wish to concentrate for this blog. In particular, what comes from the East, the so-called Orient, a word that has now fallen on hard times, both literally and in a sense, figuratively. The Middle East has exploded in wars and revolutions, while the far East falls under tidal waves, hurricanes, monsoons and earthquakes. And yet, when we step into a store to purchase a new fragrance, or shop for perfume to gift our loved ones, we can’t avoid the oils, scents and ingredients hailing from the East.

At the recent Pitti Fragranze, a grandiose scent event that takes place every year in Florence inside the historic Stazione Leopolda, I met, talked to, smelled and tried on everyone and everything that has to do with perfume. And I came away with a few notes of the Orient. From Oud, a prime ingredient in many luxury perfumes today, to distant memories of Morocco, Afghanistan and Iran, I found the Middle East within Florence.

Richard Lüscher Britos — ’32ºN 08ºE’ Marrakech

Three childhood friends started the brand Richard Lüscher Britos out of their passion for cultural and biological diversity. Their fragrances are inspired by “terroirs”, a French term typically used to describe the particularity of a wine, due to the environment where it is produced. Marvin, Lukas and Serena, hailing from Switzerland, vouch for their perfumes to be fair trade, with ingredients produced in a sustainable manner, transparency of origin and harvesting and a pure nature — 75% of the components in Richard Lüscher Britos perfumes are organic.

2016-09-24-1474700566-8220681-Untitled.jpeg.jpg

Now that said, a perfume has to smell great, inspire visions of faraway lands and distant memories to impress me. And their latest scent, the “Sixth Terroir” is inspired by the city of Marrakech and bears its coordinates “32ºN 08ºE”. It’s a magical journey down the alleys of the Red City, complete with Moroccan mint tea, honey sweet roses, hints of figs and oasis sands. Lukas Lüscher explained the thought process behind the scent:

Hospitality is sacred in the Arab world. People could not have survived in those harsh desert environments without helping each other. And it is out of the spirit of this sacred hospitality that our scent is created. If you find yourself in Marrakech, you would probably be invited by a kind host inside his home, where he would offer you a cup of sweet mint tea. It’s a ritual of welcoming the guest, and igniting a conversation. After a leisurely tea, you would then probably venture out into the alleys of the city, and there you would smell the fragrance of spices.

On a personal note, this scent felt joyous and fresh, the mint tea and watermelon notes simple and sweet while the spices made it dance in a new sphere, a bit like what happens to Marrakech’s main square, Jamaa el Fna, when it changes from the morning market to its evening open-air-restaurant and magical meeting place. I fell in love with “32ºN 08ºE” and I’m about to finish my sample… Which means a trip to the world wide web to figure out where to buy it.

Otta – An Iranian Renaissance in Florence

2016-09-24-1474700604-2065453-IMG_3251.jpg

Iranian-born Roshanak Nouri is an artist, a wearable artist. Her beautiful, handmade in Italy silk scarves combine the beauty of a Persian garden with the skills of Florentine craftsmanship. Nouri believes in Renaissance, as a sort of personal word — she felt reborn in the city of Florence which she now calls home — and also a rebirth of style, of certain influences in a new environment. Which means that Persian garden gets reinvented with Florentine flowers, or the portrait of a woman is interpreted in a beautiful Iranian palette.

Even the name of the company is an ode to Florence, though of the city seen through classical eyes. In fact, during Dante’s and Boccaccio’s era, Otta was the ancient Italian way of saying “hour”.

Otta scarves can be worn by men and women alike, and I personally loved the idea of wearing one as a men’s pocket square, each day changing the colors according to the fold. Nouri’s creation are also perfect tied on a handbag or, of course, worn as a traditional foulard. Whichever the way, Otta scarves feel like the perfect accessory for this trip down the Silk Road.

From Morocco to Afghanistan with Coquillete Paris

2016-09-24-1474700644-7716264-IMG_3287.jpg

Nothing says successful perfume to me like having a few people stop you on the street to ask “What are you wearing?” I’ll admit this happened a couple of times when I was wearing both Coquillete Paris‘ ‘Herat’, inspired by a poetry contest for young Afghan women, and ‘Tan-Tan’ which is named after the Moroccan desert city where the Venus of Tan-Tan, an ancient artifact which may be the first ever made outlining a woman’s naked form, was found.

‘Herat’ is, almost tongue in cheek, an interpretation of Afghan hashish, the company claims, combining tobacco and jasmine notes with actual wood amber hashish, myrrh and vetiver. It smells like a beautiful jasmine incense, but more feminine and delicious than any words could describe. ‘Tan-Tan’ is instead a mystical blend inspired by pine and absinthe, interpreted by combining notes of Moroccan white fig, bergamot, jasmine, patchouli and sandalwood. It feels like a magical day in the desert, surrounded by a breeze from the ocean.

Again, a trip to the internet is needed…

The Leather of Andalusia by Rania J.

2016-09-24-1474700712-779950-IMG_3283.jpg

Talking about the Arab world cannot exist without talking about perfumers from the Middle East. Rania Jouaneh is one such perfumer and nose based in Paris, whose childhood traveling around the MENA region has given birth to a wonderful niche line of perfumers named after her — Rania J. I stumbled upon two samples of her ‘Cuir Andalou’ — Andalusian leather — almost by accident in Florence — a happy accident!

The fragrance is perfectly unisex, as most great perfumes are these days, irreverently smoky with a delicious flowery finish. It combines notes of leather, of course, pachouli, saffron, neroli, rose and violet, with a balance of oud, and vetiver — notes that add that more masculine touch, and round it out to perfection. The packaging is also divine and made me think of both Rumi’s poetry and Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.

And, Jouaneh has the perfect quote on her website, one I deeply believe in when it comes to scent:

She envisages her perfume as a key accessory, one to be worn as jewelry for the skin.

Creating an India Scent Story with CRS TrendLAB

2016-09-24-1474700800-8812503-CreatinganIndiaScentStory007.jpg

I’ll admit, I’ve grown very fond of Annou Iyer and Roney Simon directors of CRS TrendLab, a marketing, consulting, imports and distribution company based both in Delhi, India and Torino, Italy. They share an enthusiasm for cross-cultural exchanges and sharing experiences that will open up the world to new opportunities. And they do it through fashion, and now fragrance.

This time around at Pitti Fragranze, CRS TrendLAB offered a great talk, an introduction to the world of scent in and from India, featuring Shakti Vinay Shukla, the Director of the prestigious Fragrance & Flavour Development Centre and Rajiv Sheth who is an Entrepreneur and Founder of the brand, All Good Scents, India’s first and very unique online fragrance perfumery.

It’s unbelievable to realize that India is an untapped market, when it comes to the distribution of international luxury perfume labels to the upwardly mobile middle class, which has boomed in the last ten years. But the market is also relatively unused for prime resources, and India is where Ayurveda comes from, after all, a practice founded on essential oils and natural Attar.

Iyer explained:

The earliest scents known to India were the healing scents practiced from the times of pre-Vedic and Vedic periods, introduced through Ayurveda. Ayurvedic remedies with the use of aromatic herbs and fragrant plants for well-being, hygiene, treatment of ailments, beauty and age-control is well known even today.
 
Ayurveda is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Ayur (Life) Veda (Knowledge or Science) provides an integrated approach to preventing and treating illness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies.
 
The distillation of scents, perfumes, fragrant liquids and ointments is one area where the knowledge of chemistry was applied in India since ancient times.

My own journey into Indian fragrances started as soon as I set foot on the ground of the Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Bombay. There, wafting from all sides, was a mixture of engine oil, tar, burning tires and jasmine hair oil that will forever represent the perfume of India for me. It’s a scent I chased around temples, through souvenir shops and finally found, in a completely different incarnation of rose oil, outside the main palace in Udaipur.

So, I personally can’t wait for the first best-selling Indian perfume, one I hope will pay tribute to the cacophony of scents that represent this wondrous country!

Barack Obama Advises His 2009 Self In Hilarious Jimmy Fallon Clip

If you had the chance, what advice would you give to your younger self?

Jimmy Fallon has hilariously imagined what the President Barack Obama of today would say to himself when he first entered the White House in 2009.

And POTUS’ biggest tip? Well, apparently it’s all about the hand sanitizer.

With the election so close, President Obama’s time in office is winding down,” Fallon said on “The Tonight Show” on Friday.

“Of course, Obama has changed a lot during his Presidency,” the comedian added, before playing the amusing spliced and diced interview between the “duo.”

Check out the fun in the clip above.

China ‘Fixed’ Its Great Wall And The Results Are… Not Great

When you picture the Great Wall of China, images like the one below probably come to mind.

Rolling hills, ancient towers, beautifully carved stonework. You certainly don’t think of ugly cement.

Photos of a 2014 “repair job” done on a 700-year-old portion of the Great Wall in northeast China emerged on the internet this week sparked outrage in the country and across the world.

It’s fair to say that part of the ancient wonder now looks more like a modern-day bike path.

 

Local officials promised they did not use cement to repair the wall, writes The New York Times. Instead, they said they used a combination of sand and lime, a solution that was reportedly approved by the local government in Suizhong county, near the boarder of the Liaoning and Hebei provinces.

Great Wall of China Society deputy director Dong Yaohui said the restoration work had been done “very badly,” CNN reports.

“Repairing [the wall] like this has wiped out all the culture and history,” he told the Times.

UNESCO says the protection and maintenance of the the world heritage site is led by China’s national administration on cultural heritage and provincial cultural heritage administrations where sections of the Great Wall are located. These organizations are responsible for guiding local governments on restoration efforts. The two-year old repair, which took three months to complete, is reportedly under review amid the growing criticism.

The five-mile stretch was known as the “wild” area of the Great Wall and was less visited than other portions. The wall once stretched for more than 12,000 miles.

The Ultimate Itinerary for Road Tripping Iceland’s Ring Road

Iceland

If it seems like everyone’s talking about Iceland lately, that’s because they are. But, ask them where they went and there’s a good chance they’ll give you a similar response: “Well, we stayed in Reykjavik and took excursions during the day.” And while there’s nothing wrong with that (Reykjavik is great!), there’s a lot more to Iceland than its famous Golden Circle attractions. Of course, the locals know this, which is why they built the Ring Road, an 800-plus-mile loop encircling most of the country, meant to help get visitors out of town and onto the road slightly less traveled.
Venture out into the countryside and you’ll find yourself hiking a massive glacier one minute and then tumbling across a black sand beach that plays home to seals and puffins the next. Most amazing of all, though, is the fact that if you journey far enough from the typical tourist track, you can find yourself utterly alone on one of these stunning glacier hikes, even in the height of tourist season. Here, an itinerary for eight amazing days exploring Iceland’s Ring Road attractions.

Day 1
If you can swing it, book a flight that lands early and head straight from the airport to the famous Blue Lagoon, which opens at 8:00 a.m. about half of the year. After 9:00 a.m., tour buses arrive caravan-style and you’ll find yourself elbowing tourists out of the way as they rush toward the in-lagoon bar (yes, that exists). Oh and do coat your hair with conditioner before entering the lagoon. Many an unlucky visitor has had her locks turn to straw by ignoring that crucial pre-soak step.

A few hours of lounging in the lagoon (and testing out the silica mud masks) can work up an appetite. Head out of town to Fridheimar, a family-run tomato farm and restaurant that serves all things tomato (even the cocktails are tomato-based). The home-baked bread is a highlight, and is perfect for dipping into bottomless bowls of tomato soup.

You’ll be tired from your flight, so take the afternoon to relax and recharge. Drive south, allowing plenty of time to stop for photo ops (there are a good deal of those wildly beautiful, oft-photographed Icelandic horses in this area), and check in to the cozy—if slightly kitschy—Hotel Rangá to rest up for the packed day ahead.

Day 2
Wake up early and hit the road. The immense Seljalandsfoss (foss means waterfall) is your first stop. Get there early and you’ll have the place mostly to yourself. And don’t forget a poncho and some waterproof shoes, as you’ll want to climb the stairs that lead up and behind the waterfall for a stunning vista—but you’ll get fairly wet while doing so. After you’ve seen the main fall, walk about half a mile down a path, along the area campground, to the lesser-known Gljúfrabúi waterfall. It’s smaller but perhaps even more magical. You’ll have to scramble over rocks (or if you have wellies, wade right into the stream) to climb into the cave where the waterfall is located. But, once you arrive, you’ll be rewarded with an amazing, up-close view of this stunning fall.

Hop back in the car and drive a bit further along Route 1 (the Ring Road) until you come to Skógafoss, another stunning waterfall. Climb the stairs adjacent to the fall for a beautiful panoramic view. You’ll see a lot of waterfalls throughout your trip (seriously, hundreds), but this is one of the most impressive.

A few more miles down the road, you’ll notice some cars pulled over and parked in front of a gate. This is the road to the Sólheimasandur plane wreck. It’s a 1970s DC-3 plane that crash-landed on a black sand beach (the crew all survived) and has stood abandoned for years, making for a very popular Instagram shot. The farmer who owns the land used to let cars drive the few miles down to the crash, but the gates are now closed, so you’ll have to walk it (it’s about two hours round-trip) if you want to see the wreckage.

Afterward, drive on toward the town of Vik. About 10 miles before you get there, you’ll see signs for Dyrhólaey. Make the turn and drive toward the rocky black sand coast. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to spot puffins wandering among their nests on the windswept cliffs. Stop also to see the immense basalt columns (a crazy-looking natural phenomenon) along the black rock beach at Reynisdrangar—just beware the wild waves (i.e., keep a safe distance from the ocean).

Stop for a late lunch at the very casual Sudur Vik in town. The seafood is, unsurprisingly, the thing to order here, although, their pizza also hits the spot after a long morning of adventuring (if you’re not a seafood fan, you’ll find that pizza becomes a staple of your Iceland diet).

You can spend the night in Vik, though for the sake of time, it helps to venture on. After lunch, take a hike up through the Fjadrárgljúfur canyon (yet another take-your-breath-away kind of landscape). Then, hop back in the car and find your way to the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Pull off before you get to the bridge, hike a few minutes over what looks like a sand dune, and you’ll be rewarded with a staggeringly beautiful view of a crystal clear lagoon filled with enormous ice chunks (melt-off from the nearby Breiðamerkurjökull glacier). Stand quietly by the edge of the water and you’ll hear the ice cracking in the distance. Then drive onto the bridge where the ice chunks rush en masse out to sea. It’s an incredible sight and well worth the stop.

Finally, head to Fosshotel Vatnajökull, a perfectly modern and comfortable property, placed in the middle of an impossibly green meadow, with big picture windows looking out on the Vatnajökull glacier. Eat dinner on the property and fall happily into bed.

A note: If you do decide to spend the night in Vik to break up this day, another excellent stop is the Skaftafell park, where mega waterfall Svartifoss is a major draw.

Day 3
After breakfast, drive just a few miles (down a rocky dirt road) to a little-trafficked hiking trail near a “glacier tongue” of the Hoffellsjökull glacier. Carefully wander the dramatic landscape (signs warning of quicksand and other dangers abound, though if you’re vigilant, it’s perfectly safe). Then scramble up a steep path for a several-kilometer hike across the mountains and back to your car (the whole hike takes two or three hours). And make sure to take many breaks to soak it all in. Moments like these, when you’re exploring pristine nature without a single human in sight, are what make Iceland feel so wildly special.

Get back in the car and drive on toward the town of Höfn. Pakkhús is a solid spot for a tasty lunch. After walking around the small town, drive north through the breathtaking fjords of the east coast. There’s not much to do but enjoy the scenery here, so make sure to stop often for photos or simply to take in the large-scale beauty of this incredible area.

In the afternoon, you’ll drive up through a slightly terrifying (but gorgeous!) mountain pass and down into the valley on the other side where you’ll find Silfurberg farm and guest house. The charming family-run spot offers incredible home-cooked meals (one of the best you’ll have in Iceland) and plush beds, perfect for a deep night’s sleep.

Day 4
Your fourth day will find you driving inland, toward the implausibly weird region known as Myvatn. En route, you’ll pass the town of Egilsstadir. You’d be wise to stop at a grocery store for picnic provisions along the way, as restaurants are few and far between on this stretch.

Myvatn is beautiful in its own insane, stark way. It’s filled with otherworldly lava fields and crater lakes. Be warned, the entire area smells strongly of sulfur. You get used to it after a while. Stop first at the Viti crater, a massive hollow filled with impossibly bright blue-green water. Next, hike through the Krafla lava fields, where parts of the ground are melt-your-shoe hot and you regularly stumble across pools of boiling mineral water and steam pouring from massive holes in the ground. It’s a post-apocalyptic scene in many ways, and unlike anything else you’ve likely seen.

If you have the time, stop at Lake Myvatn itself and wander the many paths around its lush green banks. It’s a lovely, bucolic setting that stands in peaceful contrast to the former region’s stark barrenness.

Afterward, drive on toward Iceland’s second largest city, Akureyri. Break up the drive with a quick stop at yet another waterfall, Godafoss, along the way. Then, check in to the Icelandair Hotel Akureyri and walk into town for dinner. An easy, casual, and locally favored spot is Bautinn, where fresh seafood and a well-stocked salad bar are the highlights.

Day 5
You’ve got less driving today, so sleep in before heading north toward the Vatnsnes area. As you drive along these windswept cliff roads, stop every now and then to hike down to the black sand beaches below. Pack a pair of binoculars and you may be rewarded with a seal colony sighting or two. Stop for lunch at Geitafell, a little family-run restaurant offering steaming bowls of soup and fresh-baked cookies.

As you drive west and emerge from the fog-covered cliffs, you’ll find yourself in sunny Hvammstangi. Stop into the grocery store, stock up on dinner supplies, and make your way to your Airbnb. Hotels in this area are sparse, so a cozy cabin is your best bet.

Day 6
Wake up and head to Erpsstadir dairy farm for a bowl of skyr, Iceland’s traditional thick, creamy yogurt. This little farm specializes in making it in wild flavors. And be sure to pick up some skyr truffles for later!

If you’re an adventurous type, drive to a hike called Glymur. The four- or five-hour trek involves shimmying across a slippery log bridge, scaling near-vertical rocks (with the help of wire ropes installed along the trail), scrambling across boulders, and, eventually, fording an ice-cold stream uncomfortably close to the mouth of one of Iceland’s tallest waterfalls. The trail offers stunning vistas and, frankly, after so many hours sitting in the car, you may be grateful for the physical challenge. That said, the risk-averse may want to skip this stop.

After all that action, Hotel Húsafell will provide a welcome respite. Spend the afternoon soaking in their mineral pool before tucking into an indulgent dinner at their on-site restaurant.

Day 7
Today you’ll head back toward civilization and the Golden Circle’s famous Thingvellir National Park. After so many days off the beaten path, it may feel like culture shock to return to this world of tour bus–filled parking lots. The landscape in this region is still stunning but less dramatic than some of the more remote areas. If tour buses just aren’t your speed, you could spend your last few days exploring the western fjords (one of Iceland’s most outstanding landscapes) and skip the Golden Circle entirely.

If you’re sticking with the Golden Circle, one of the more popular activities in the area is snorkeling (or scuba diving) in the Silfra fissure. Book a private excursion with Magmadive and they’ll quickly have you slipping into a dry suit and jumping into the freezing water. And though the temperature is initially shocking to your exposed face, it’s actually quite peaceful to swim along in this crazy-clear water, literally floating between two plates of the earth.

If you’re spending the night in the area, a popular choice is the design-centric Ion hotel. However, it’s worth noting that the property sits mere feet from a massive geothermal power plant, which means that when the wind shifts you may be assailed with the scent of sulfur from the plant. If eau de sulfur isn’t up your alley, you could spend the night in Reykjavik as well.

Day 8
On your last day, you’ll want to make some time to explore Reykjavik. The city is easily walkable, so drop your bags in your room at 101 Hotel and wander over to the famous Harpa opera house. From there, head into town for some souvenir shopping (the hand-knit wool sweaters are seriously cozy), though there are plenty of high-design options, too. And don’t miss the incredible ice cream at Valdís. Finally, tuck into a dinner of Icelandic staples like lamb and lobster at Kol. After dinner, wander the streets and stop in for a drink at any one of the brimming bars. Reykjavik comes alive after dark, and you’ve got plenty of time to sleep on the plane home tomorrow anyway. Skál!

Barack Obama Is The Cusser In Chief In Hilarious Jimmy Kimmel Clip

President Barack Obama confesses to cursing in private.

But what would happen if he peppered his more important public speeches with profanities? Jimmy Kimmel hilariously imagined such a development on his show Thursday night.

The comedian referenced Obama’s interview in the latest Vanity Fair, in which he admitted to “cursing more in this office than I had in my previous life.”

His staff are accustomed to his explicit rants, but “unfortunately we don’t get to hear those profanity-laced tirades,” Kimmel said.

“So tonight, to get a taste of what it’s like, we went through the past eight years of bleeps and blurs and we put together this all-Obama edition of this week in ‘Unnecessary Censorship,’” the host added.

Match Your Workwear To Your #CareerGoals With These 7 Fashion Tips

From ultra-modern athleisure to Savile Row–style suitings, the landscape of women’s work attire has transformed radically over the past decade. While the variety ensures we can finally move away from #ThrowbackThursday classics like shoulder pads and powers suits, the shift also has brought countless confusing options. “Dress for the job you want” is valuable advice and all, but how many of us are left wondering, Was there more to that memo?!

To navigate the maze that is modern work attire, we partnered with ModCloth to share exactly how to sartorially highlight your top professional talents. Whether your workplace persona is the boss in charge, the trusted client-facing star on the rise or something else entirely, by following these simple tips from top personal style experts, you can get your clothing to work for you.

If you want to showcase your … 

1. Creativity

Aesthetics and bold design are your raison d’être, so dip into your vintage clothing reserves to make the ultimate sartorial statement. “Reinvent a vintage menswear piece,” stylist Sara Cooper suggests.

2. Client-facing chops

Client management is only part people skills. To convey confidence, Cooper recommends sticking to a uniform color. “Keep it monochromatic head to toe,” Cooper says. Consider an ensemble of polished separates in the same solid hue the new power suit, tailored to your specific style.

3. Trendspotting eye

You can predict the hashtags that will light up Twitter and pinpoint the “It” bag of next season months in advance. Give your attire the same prescience by adding in an autumnal mainstay: accents at the neckline. “Try a choker or neck scarf and keep the rest of your look classic,” Cooper suggests. Bold neckwear is the ideal finishing touch for a simple suit or shift dress.

4. Leadership

Poise conveys power in every leadership role, and one way to demonstrate your prowess is through fierce pieces in your wardrobe. “Wear red. Nothing stops a show more than a woman in a red dress,” stylist Meg Gallagher counsels. If a crimson dress is too radical for your taste, wade in to the waist with a streamlined red skirt instead.

5. Individuality

What do the wild and wacky street-style stars of Fashion Week have in common? Their idiosyncratic ensembles demonstrate innate individuality ― however outre it may be. You share that sense of whimsy ― but how do you express it at the office? Inject your outfit with a personalized touch for an instant  demonstration of your unique vision. Gallagher suggests finding that one signature piece, like a strong shouldered jacket or a blazer with a nipped waist, you can wear again and again and make yours. Just be sure it strikes “an authoritative silhouette,” she adds. “Black is fine but a color will knock their socks off.” As a bonus, the topper will serve as an extra layer of warmth as the autumn weather cools.

6. Tech savvy

When selecting the perfect accessories for an ensemble, Gallagher has two words for techies: “Statement footwear.” Consider bold shoes a mark of individuality, and an opportunity for further outfit customization. “Rock a funky velvet or embroidered shoe or boot with a neutral colored outfit and let your footwear statement shine through,” the stylist says.

7. Love of numbers

Drawing conclusions from data sets is second-nature to you, so consider clothing yet another code you can crack. To demonstrate an acute understanding of analytics, “Pair a fitted turtleneck with wide leg slacks or a high-waisted pencil skirt,” Cooper advises entrepreneurs. “This shows your ability to edit, keep it simple yet classy and not distract from business.”

Whether you want to demonstrate business acumen or creativity, dressing your best is one strategy for demonstrating your flair. This autumn, ModCloth has the perfect picks for revamping your work wardrobe and achieving your career goals.
