How To Pick Out Your Bridal Party

Being a bridesmaid or groomsman can require a lot of work – and cost a pretty penny. If you’re going to put someone on the spot, it’s helpful to know the finer points of whom and how to ask.

 

Before you start filling out your bridal party with every friendly girl and guy you’ve ever met, keep in mind that you’d likely feel awkward (and might resent the time/expense) if asked to be an attendant by someone who’s only an acquaintance.

Bunk bed built for kids in attic of home!



Kids enjoy having unique areas to play in or even a small area to call “home”.  A modified bunk bed custom-built in the attic/loft of this contemporary home would be the envy of any child, while still serving a functional secondary purpose via storage space for books, games, and other items.

In lieu of a bottom bed of the bunk, a play area instead occupies this space and gives the child offers plenty of open space for creative fun.

The bunk bed’s ladder splits the open space into two separate areas. One side is meant for fun while the other is meant for doing homework and keeping up with his or her studies.

Even myself, as an adult, find myself envious of this uniquely built attic bunk bed. I imagine children would have a blast sleeping, playing, and studying in this attic or loft  creation!

Would You Live In This 86-Square-Foot Apartment?

 Tiny Appartement in Paris
Could you live there?

In a Haussmann-style building in Paris, “away from the hustle and bustle” of the city, there is a very, very small “maid room” apartment, (barely) fit for one.
The functional apartment, possibly one of the smallest in the city, is “accessible by a simple service door, after climbing seven floors, and crossing a long and narrow corridor.”

What’s all the fuss about the new sheet masks? Besides being virtually mess-free, dummyproof, and travel-friendly, these single-use masks take skin transformation to a whole new level. “The fabric sheets are soaked in serum—a light liquid made of very small molecules—so ingredients penetrate faster and more deeply than a standard cream or gel mask,” says New York City dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD.
