    Perusing the web for interior inspiration is hands-down one of our fave time-sucks. Whether we wind up on Pinterest or a stellar design blog, we're always wracking our brains for ways to copy the creative layouts we peep. But forget the sleek Eames lounge or the lush, plant-laden backyard—if there’s one standout feature we can’t get enough of, it’s a carefully curated bookshelf.

    The ravishing repositories of reading material and knickknacks provide so much more than a mere mantle to display tomes.

And in this case, maybe it's okay to judge a book by its cover…just a little bit.

The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
