The scent of lavender has long been associated with bedtime and a better night's sleep. John Parkinson, a 17th-century London apothecary believed that...
What did that decision-making process look like? "Hmmm, well my dog is a FEMALE and I think she is so PRETTY so I'm going to name her either 'she' or 'beautiful' in another language and I will love it until the Apocalypse.
Sure, we've all decided on our favorite looks from the Emmy's. Some of us even had opinions before the stars set foot out of their cars. Like me with Lena Dunham. I always know she's going to look mildly disheveled. Is that fair? No. Is it true? Yes.
With the final races of the America's Cup set to begin on Sept. 7 between Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand, now is a good time to assess what has worked and what hasn't during the troubled "summer of sailing' that started the July 4 weekend on the San Francisco Bay.
It's August and New Yorkers know that means two things: First, if you need a shrink you'll find it, as Woody Allen once quipped, in the Hamptons.

Over Memorial Day weekend, a select few eschewed beaches and mountains traversing through a barren wasteland to a Mecca in West Texas known as Ballr...
These two designers are both Italian, but Schiaparelli worked in the 1930s to 1950s and Prada designs today. The exhibit plays up their similarities and contrasts, in both their clothing designs and in the imagined dialogue between the two women.
"I still really liked the exhibit. The clothes were very pretty and it made me feel inspired to go out and be a more powerful woman." "You just want to justify spending too much money on a summer wardrobe." "Yeah, pretty much, yes."
