I don't know about you, but when I think of outdoor entertaining, I immediately picture summer parties consisting of barbecues, swimming, cornhole and other games (like Giant Jenga and Connect Four), and roasting marshmallows to make s'mores. READ MORE.
"This is the summer of the plastic straw ban," The Wall Street Journal stated in a recent article outlining this season's extra push to ban said single-use drinking tubes. And they're not wrong. READ MORE.
Since Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) swapped homes in the 2006 movie The Holiday, I've been dreaming of doing the same. The idea is magical and if it meant meeting my soulmate (*cough cough* Jude Law), plus becoming BFFs with the person I swapped with for the week, I'd be even more down. READ MORE.
"When you're ready, come and get it," - Selena Gomez, regarding her mansion in Fort Worth, Texas, probably. Because after approximately two years on the market with no luck of selling, she's dropped the price of her home on Saint Laurent Court to $2.7 million and listed it with Christie’s International Real Estate.

Nobody can do it all, it's just an unfortunate fact of life. But if you have a little help, you sure can do a lot. When it comes to cooking — unless you're Ina Garten — chances are you have limited time, space, and/or patience, but thanks to the new June Oven, the kitchen just got a whole lot hotter (also smarter, it's not all about looks).

Upon learning that Lance Bass and his real estate agent for the Brady Bunch house weren't exactly (dare I say) ... n'sync, I was anxiously waiting to hear which corporate buyer was responsible for tearin' up his heart (OK, I promise I'm done).
So, I'm sure you can imagine the face I made when CNN reported that HGTV was the winning bidder, and Lance's opponent in the Brady Bunch Bid War of 2018. READ MORE.
Christina El Moussa is the first to admit that working with an ex is, well ... awkward and naturally, tension between the couple made for incredibly cringeworthy TV during the season 7 premiere of their HGTV show Flip or Flop. But, after successfully navigating this "new territory" (despite Christina being head over heels for beau Ant Anstead while Tarek is living the single life), the house flipping duo's journey together is not over. READ MORE.
Calling all Sam's Club members (and everyone else who needs to get a membership ASAP), now's your chance to stock up on all things fall because it's right around the corner. Not ready yet? Well, you better prep yourself, as stores are making it nearly impossible to say "no" to those pumpkins, witches, and leafy centerpieces (ahem, Target and Pier 1). READ MORE.
Just short of two months before the season 9 premiere of The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus (who plays main character Daryl Dixon in the hit series) and fellow Sky actress Diane Kruger have purchased a humble $11.75 million townhouse in New York City. READ MORE.
The next time you hear someone say they don't want flowers because they die too easily, please tell them they've been doing it wrong.
Teleflora, the flower delivery company, has recently made a huge push to incorporate succulents and other sustainable blooms into its designs, both to stay on-trend and so that people could enjoy their bouquets longer. It's a win-win, and apparently, it's seriously resonating with people. READ MORE.
Sure, you could enter to win a sleepover in an exclusive Airbnb atop the Great Wall of China, but why would you hold your breath when you can take fate into your own hands and book a vacation that lets you live la vida Gordon Ramsay? Not only would you be holidaying like the celebrity chef and restauranteur, but you'd actually be renting his home. Yes, you heard right. READ MORE.
Not to panic you, but all of those back-to-school sales and posters everywhere aren't just stores pushing their stuff on you (though it's certainly a factor). Summer's slipping away fast, which means the first day back is coming up faster than you might realize. It's an even taller order for college students, since getting packed up to live in a dorm isn't as easy as making a quick Staples run to call that basic black binder "good enough." READ MORE.
Quick question for all the "but it's only August" people: Your annoyance is just a bunch of hocus pocus, right?

Drive through the gates of 2345 Lake Avenue in Miami's prestigious guarded gate community, Sunset Island III, and you'll immediately be enchanted. This 19,281-square-foot beachfront mansion previously belonged to former pro tennis player, Anna Kournikova, and with 8 bedrooms and 8 baths, it's hard to wonder why she (or anyone) would ever want to leave.
