The Aleph Rome Hotel – Boutique Luxury in the Heart of the City

Enjoying Rome is a new sensation for me. It started last fall when I returned after a very long absence and surprised myself by falling in love with the city. There’s something about it that resonated with me on my recent visits that hadn’t happened before so, when I learned that my Viking oceans cruise ended in Rome, I knew I wanted to extend my stay. I spent two days in Rome after the cruise, with the mission of enjoying the city’s holiday traditions as well as revisiting favorite spots aroun...

Jenna & Haydn’s Luxe Twilight Engagement Shoot

  Jenna & Haydn I first fell in love with today’s engagement shoot when I saw images of a clearly very much in love couple dancing below festoon lights after dark. I am a firm believer that lights can magic just about anything up and when it comes to an engagement session, which rarely needs much magic, it adds a little touch of sparkle – as evident through every image of this luxe twilight engagement shoot captured by Israel Baldago. The shoot take place at the beautiful M...

How To Wear The Metallic Makeup Trend Like A Boss

Take a minute to scan your memory of the most iconic party images you've ever seen. Maybe you think of Grace Jones in living color at Studio 54. Perhaps Bianca Jagger, almost always in sequins on a night out. Or Daisy, shimmying at Gatsby's opulent, sparkling affair. And who can forget '90s-era Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss? Those silver dresses, that metallic makeup. There's a reason these moments stand out — and it's no coincidence that they don't involve cotton dresses, matte brown eyeshadow,...

2018 Audi A5 & S5: Performance Meets Design

( = || []).push({}); Audi is an interesting company. They’re not consistently right, year after year, but when they do get it right, they really knock it out of the stadium. Ask Walter Rohrl or Michelle Mouton. Ask anyone who’s gone up against an R8 on a rainy stretch of road. Further, look at Audi’s 5 Series. The 5 models, the A5 and higher performing S5, are in a very difficult arena: The sport coupe market. It’s crowded. The margins are thin. It’s hard...

In My Beginning

They met at a masked ball in Prague. I never learned what their costumes were, but certainly her mane of auburn hair must have entranced him, and his tall dark handsomeness no doubt caught her eye. He came from Vienna but was working here in a business established by his grandfather, as he'd done since he was 16 and his father died. She was born in the town of Beroun, just outside Prague, and never went to school in her life. Her father, director of a textile mill and anglophile in his ways (or...

‘The Simpsons’ Airing Their First Hour-Long Hip-Hop-Themed Episode

The Simpsons only has a brief relationship with hip-hop — we’ve seen cameos from 50 Cent, Cypress Hill and Pharrell, and who can forget Bart’s short-lived rap career? — but for the show’s upcoming 28th season, Matt Groening and co. are planning their very first hour-long episode with a hip-hop twist. Continue reading below… According to Entertainment Weekly, the two-part episode, dubbed The Great Phatsby, centers around a bromance-turned-beef between Mr. Burns and an enigmatic hip-hop mogul...

The Danger of Judging Others

When I was growing up in Grosse Pointe, a suburb outside of Detroit, I lived on a street where all of the other families were married, and my mother was the only single mother on the street. At some point it became clear to me that the other families in the neighborhood did not approve of the fact that my mother was single. Our next-door neighbors, for example, did not particularly like living next door to a single woman. One time I was doing some work on my mother’s front lawn and the fath...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,I recently read a Buzzfeed article that listed out the top 50 most beautiful sentences in literature. What are some of your favorites?-My Name Here A: Dear diction, I absolutely adore the poem The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. No, but listen to these lines: Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.     Eagerly I wished the morrow;—vainly I had sought to borrow     From my books surcease o...

Gatsby Dandyism Watch

Today's watch isn't anything particularly special in the looks department, but I added it to my collection because of the unusual name. The watch is called Gatsby Dandyism, with the name written in a way to suggest that the brand is called Gatsby, and Dandyism is the name of the line of watches or the watch itself. Searching for Gatsby Dandyism doesn't get many hits apart from auction sites where the watch has been sold, so I haven't been able to find out anything about the brand. With regards t...

10 Books That Shaped Our Teenage Years

SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue By Linda Bernstein Let me begin with this: The kind of YA (Young Adult) books that are marketed to teens these days (think The Hunger Games) didn’t exist when we boomers were in our teens. In fact, I’d argue that the first actual YA book wasn’t published until 1967. I’m thinking specifically of The Outsiders by the then-teenage S.E. Hinton. Many of us devoured this novel, though our parents and teachers disapproved of it. The characters smoked cigarettes (Eeek! Smoking t...
