Beautiful monuments you have to see in DC

ADVERTISEMENT


Fancy a trip to Washington DC? If you’ve never been to the capital of the United States, then you’re missing out. There are so many amazing sights to see that you might struggle to fit everything in during your visit. If a vacation in DC is on the agenda, then these are the monuments that you absolutely have to see while you’re there.

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Martin Luther King Jr. made a huge impact on DC back in 1963. During the March on Washington, the activist made his “I Have a Dream” speech which has now gone down as one of the most iconic speeches in history. If that’s not enough of a reason to see this memorial, then we don’t know what is. It’s located in West Potomac Park, just outside of the National Mall where a variety of other must-see monuments reside.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial

One such monument is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. This landmark covers two acres in the National Mall and is dedicated to members of the U.S. armed forces who fell during the Vietnam War. More than 58,000 names have been inscribed on the memorial, which has stood since 1982, and it ’s touched the hearts of the many thousands who visit it. Seeing the names of so many people who lost their lives can be quite depressing, but the wall is a moving tribute to those who fought for their country.

Other monuments have since been erected as part of the memorial. These are the Three Servicemen and Vietnam Women’s statues, which are located close by. They’re not as popular as the wall, but are worth a visit to remember everyone involved in the conflict.

Lincoln Memorial

One of the most prominent monuments in Washington DC is the Lincoln Memorial. It’s a building that many associate with the capital, and is one of the most popular landmarks in all of North America. As you might be able to guess, the memorial is dedicated to a man considered by many to be one of the United States’ greatest presidents – Abraham Lincoln. Thousands of people visit the monument on a daily basis to learn more about the man and see the statue of him that overlooks the Reflecting Pool.

The memorial has done more than pay tribute to Lincoln. It’s actually been a part of history itself. That iconic speech that Martin Luther King Jr. made during the March on Washington? Done right on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Washington Monument

You can’t visit Washington DC to look at monuments and not go see the Washington Monument. The clue is in the name. This obelisk stands at the foot of the Reflecting Pool opposite the Lincoln Memorial, and was erected in honor of George Washington. The monument is an impressive sight to see, especially as its the tallest stone structure to have ever been built. While you’ll probably catch glimpses of it during your time in DC, it’s still worth giving it a look up close.

Titanic memorial

One of the iconic monuments to see that isn’t located on the National Mall is the Titanic memorial found at Channel Park. It was originally erected in Rock Creek Park in 1931 to pay tribute to the men who died on the Titanic so that women and children could live. However, it was moved in ‘68 to its current location to make way for the Kennedy Center. While there may not be much to the statue, it’s iconic pose should strike a chord with most visitors, and remind everyone that Titanic wasn’t just an award-winning film.

Tempted to book yourself a mini vacation in Washington DC now? If you’re someone who loves a bit of historical sightseeing, a visit to the capital is definitely in order.

‘Ghost of Tsushima’ is a beautiful anthology of historical fiction stories

TwitterFacebook

Ghost of Tsushima‘s combat was the obvious star of its gameplay reveal at E3. But there’s so much more to this samurai game than sword fights.

We had a chance to speak with Ghost of Tsushima creative director Nate Fox and learn more about the story behind the game, its inspiration, and key features of the upcoming adventure.

To give a little background: Ghost of Tsushima stars Jin Sakai, a samurai on the island of Tsushima in Japan who is fighting back against an invasion of Mongols in the year 1274. Finding himself vastly outnumbered, he has to adapt his fighting techniques for more stealthy encounters and employ the way of the Ghost. Read more…

‘Pirate,’ Priest, and Korean Prisoner of War Emil Kapaun Embodied America the Beautiful

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

As we come to Memorial Day with at least the hope of a resolution with North Korea, we should remember U.S. Army Chaplain Emil Kapaun, who as a POW looked more like an eye-patched pirate than a priest, yet is credited with saving literally hundreds of lives with the pure power of spirit.

On a wartime Easter Sunday more than six decades ago, Kapaun caused an entire valley to fill with the voices of his fellow prisoners singing “America the Beautiful.” He posthumously received the Medal of Honor and is presently being considered for sainthood. The nephew who accepted the belated medal on his behalf in 2013 is certain Kapaun would be particularly pleased that there is now at least a chance of peace at long last.

“Wouldn’t that be something?” the nephew, Ray Emil Kapaun, told The Daily Beast on Friday. “That would be incredible. Without a doubt that would be good.”

Meghan Markle’s something blue is a beautiful, massive diamond that belonged to Princess Diana

Meghan Markle’s something blue is a beautiful, massive diamond that belonged to Princess Diana


Meghan Markle’s something blue is a beautiful, massive diamond that belonged to Princess Diana

As if we weren’t already almost quite literally blinded by Meghan Markle’s beauty, the newlywed stepped out in a jaw-dropping second wedding dress (a high-neck halter gown by British designer Stella McCartney) complemented by a piece of jewelry we can’t peel our eyes from. The Duchess of Sussex gave a wave as she hopped into (well, not really hopped, but more like elegantly floated into) the vintage Jaguar that she and Harry rode to Frogmore house, where the evening reception is taking place, and we couldn’t help but feast our eyes on the massive aquamarine cocktail ring she wore on her hand.

This, friends, is how you “something blue.”

Steve Parsons – WPA Pool/Getty Images, Tim Graham/Getty Images

Diana apparently wore the ring — part of a set that includes a bracelet and matching pearl earrings — to a charity auction at Christie’s in 1997, according to the eagle-eyed editors at People.com.

The piece is ostensibly a gift from Meghan’s new husband, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, as it seems to be royal tradition for the groom to gift the bride with a sentimental piece of jewelry. Prince William gave Kate Middleton Diana’s diamond and sapphire wedding ring to have as her own (and a pair of Diana’s earrings to match, according to Town & Country), while Prince Philip gifted Queen Elizabeth II with a bracelet featuring stones from his mother’s tiara.

Tim Graham/Getty Images

This wasn’t Meghan’s only bit of blue embedded in her wedding look: her Aquazzura shoes featured blue soles, which we imagine as intentional, considering Meghan’s pointed attention to detail. That attention to detail was beautifully on display at the wedding ceremony that happened in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle earlier on May 19th: from the forget-me-nots in memory of Diana in her bouquet (and flowers Harry picked himself around Kensington gardens), to the emotional inclusion of black culture throughout the ceremony, our girl Meghan did this whole royal wedding thing so. much. justice.

Now excuse us while we watch the royal wedding again and continue to ugly-cry over how beautiful, inside and out, this couple is.

Chesil Beach, Dorset: stark and beautiful, it makes your heart skip a beat

The beauty of the setting for the film On Chesil Beach is born of its rugged and rocky nature. The 18-mile sweep is best enjoyed in bite-size chunks, at its many beachside cafes

The notion of a British “beach” conjures up images of sugary sand between your toes, buckets and spades, deckchairs and jauntily painted beach huts. This, I’m afraid, is not the Chesil (in my experience of living in Dorset, fishermen, hikers and even local stick-throwing dog walkers never talk of “Chesil Beach” but simply “the Chesil”).

6 beautiful scenic train rides in America

ADVERTISEMENT


If your goal is to get from one place to another as fast as possible, then a train is not your best bet. But if your goal is the journey, rather than just the destination, then trains are the way to go. The dreaminess of railway travel will take your breath away and is the best way to see America’s most beautiful scenery.  Here are some of the best rides.

Cascades

The Cascades train goes from Eugene Oregon to Vancouver, British Columbia and is a 156 mile, four-hour ride. Its name most certainly matches up with its views. From Eugene to Seattle it is mostly evergreen forests, and then once the train hits Puget Sound, passengers get an unbeatable view of the Olympic Mountains. This ride is a moving postcard.

Cass Scenic Railroad

The eight mile Cass Scenic Railroad which goes through West Virginia is not called almost heaven for nothing.  The scenery on this ride is completely stunning.  The train is the original locomotive that was once used to transport lumber to mining camps. Today it takes passengers up a four-mile slope with unique views of the mountains below.  Whittaker Station is found at the top of the ride, which is a restored logging camp. It is most recommended to go in October when the fall colors are out.

California Zephyr

The California Zephyr train goes from Chicago, Illinois to Emeryville, California, covering a distance of 2,438 miles. To do the entire route, and retrace the path of trail pioneers who settled in the West, it takes over 50 hours. It starts in Denver and goes through the Rocky Mountains, the red rocks of Utah, the Sierras, Donner Pass and then San Francisco Bay. It’s a great way to cover the West without renting an RV.

White Pass & Yukon Route

The White Pass & Yukon Route will probably have you wondering who was bold enough to build this cliff-drop railway in 1898. The train leaves from Skagway, Alaska in three different paths, however, all take you 3,000ft down mountain lakes, glaciers, and waterfalls. This trip goes down the path of the original miner’s supply route.  It’s not suggested for those with a fear of heights.

Cape Cod Central Railroad

The Cape Cod Central Railroad offers a ride through the salt marshes, cranberry bogs, oceanfront trails and cute towns. They offer an option of an information sightseeing tour or a dinner train with fine dining prepared on board. Both options take passengers through areas of Cape Cod that can’t be seen any other way.

Grand Canyon Railway

The Grand Canyon is a legendary American landmark that you will inevitably always get stuck in traffic while visiting. That’s why taking this 130 mile round trip train that leaves from Williams is your best bet. It begins in Northern Arizona in the pine forests and then goes into a high desert. The ride also goes through the San Francisco Peaks before getting to the Grand Canyon.

Britain’s beautiful abandoned places

ADVERTISEMENT


Britain isn’t just all about London, there are some beautiful landscapes just waiting to be discovered. While London is an amazing city, and a must-visit if you head over to the UK, give yourself a few extra days and explore some of the most visually stunning abandoned places Britain has to offer.

Hallsands, Devon

Once upon a time, Hallsands was a fully functioning village, with plenty of houses and a little naval community. The idyllic village on the Devon coast was unfortunately washed into the sea thanks to an erosion of its sea defenses. Once a few hard-hitting storms came by, practically the entire village was submerged and washed away. Only a handful of cottages remain now, and if you want to see them, you’d best get there quick, in case the shoreline washes the remaining part of the village into the water too.

Dunwich, Suffolk

Most settlements from the 14th Century in the UK have either disappeared entirely or were too big to go away, places like London or Edinburgh. One former community that was equal in size to London at the time has all but gone, and there is little trace left of it. Now if you were to visit Dunwich, all you would come across would be a few ruins.

Kenfig, Wales

Another village wiped out by the sea, Kenfig sat on the bank of the Bristol Channel but was submerged under the sand in the 14th century. Not much remains, but the dunes are a Special Scientific Interest site and have been renamed the Kenfig Burrows. If you are interested in bird watching this place is for you.

Rattray, Scotland

Much of the Scottish highlands are beautiful to take in thanks to sweeping hills and a green landscape. One village at the mercy of Mother Nature was Rattray, which vanished due to shifting sands sometime around the 18th Century. Now home to a lighthouse and a ruined church, the renamed Rattray Head is a beautiful place to be during low tide. You can spot shipwrecks on the beach at this time, and who doesn’t want to feel a bit like a pirate every once in a while?

Tyneham, Dorset

This village was abandoned during the Second World War after the Ministry of Defense seized it in 1943. The village was then used as a firing range for troops training to tackle the German infantry. Promised that they would be allowed to go back to the village after the war, none of the former residents did, and so the village is eerily preserved just as the army left it. Several structures have been converted into museums.

Winchelsea, East Sussex

Used as a naval base in the 13th Century, Old Winchelsea was a hub of activity before the sea had other ideas. It had over 700 houses and plenty of inns to keep the locals entertained. The original village is still there, but you’ll have to dig for it, as it is buried below the sand dunes on the beach.

Those were some of the most beautiful abandoned places the UK has to offer. Sometimes exploring the hidden secrets of the landscape can be just as rewarding and exciting as visiting major cities.

Is Sandra Bullock’s Cover of InStyle Boring or Beautiful?

It’s hard to believe that Sandra Bullock’s last notable appearance on a mainstream fashion glossy was for an over-Photoshopped cover of Glamour back in November 2015. Laura Brown welcomes Sandra back to the circuit, making the American actress InStyle‘s cover girl for June 2018 (following up a simply stunning Zoe Kravitz cover last month). Photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Paul Cavaco, Sandra radiates throughout the cover shoot and poses in a red printed Alberta Ferretti dress in the newsstand cover (below).

US InStyle June 2018 : Sandra Bullock by Carter Smith

Once the cover broke, our forums were a divided bunch. “Gorgeous, she looks so good,” Miss Dalloway approved at once.

“Always nice to see someone different on the covers of fashion magazines. I did used to love when Sandra would be photographed by Steven Meisel for American Vogue!” vogue28 chimed in.

KINGofVERSAILLES liked what he was seeing too, commenting, “Some of the best shots of Sandra I think I’ve ever seen! Sufficiently dressed up but it still feels like Sandra Bullock, not a stylist creation. They’re not particularly imaginative and bold, but they’re very flattering.”

[ Not a tFS forum member yet? Click here to join! ]

“Still hate what Laura has done with this magazine, but this is one of the best covers from her. Sandra looks beautiful, I’m always glad to see her,” voiced SallyAlbright.

The cover didn’t float everyone’s boat, however. “Easily the most unimaginative styling I’ve seen from a fashion magazine. These dresses would be perfect for Woman & Home. That’s not even regarding the excessive Photoshop,” complained Benn98.

“Typical Sandra Bullock cover…nothing new. She’s always predictable,” Handbag Queen ranted.

“That cover is insanely boring,” said Wintergreen.

Who needs water anyway? Take a look at these beautiful deserts

ADVERTISEMENT


There is something beautiful about the desert. It is almost completely silent, with only the whistling of the wind providing any sounds. These are the places of legends and dreamers, and where only the toughest are able to flourish.

With a serene beauty, these places are unique both as biodomes and in and of themselves.

The Namib

The Namib is a beautiful, expansive desert which goes up and down the coast of Africa’s southern Atlantic shore, stretching 1,200 miles from Angola all the way to South Africa.

Meaning “the vast place” in the local Nama language, the desert is primarily sand dunes and has almost no human habitation in it whatsoever. Yet many animals have adapted to the tough, dry conditions, thriving in the heat. These animals include sidewinder snakes and a whole lot of beetles.

The coast of this desert is called the “skeleton coast” due to the fact that there are thousands of ships beached on the shores. There are no ports in this vast desert, so when trouble struck out on the open ocean, the sailors of these ships sailed straight for – and into land. They then left their ships to be taken over by the elements.

The Negev

The Negev comprises the entire southern region of Israel, taking up over 50 percent of the country. The desert has been conquered and reconquered innumerable times throughout the millennia.

Along with beautiful rock formations and incredible hiking trails, one can find ruins from the ancient Hebrews, ancient Egyptians, ancient Greeks, the Romans, and many others here.

Coming from the Hebrew root word meaning “to dry out,” the Negev is actually full of natural springs and wildlife. There are also lots of people living in this desert, from Bedouin Arab nomads to people living in towns dotted all across the landscape.

The Thar

The Thar is a beautiful desert located on the border between India and Pakistan, and has some of the most magical scenery in the world. The desert is also densely populated for how dry the area is, and has a rich and storied history going back thousands of years.

In fact, this desert has played a huge role in human history, specifically in the history of people living in the desert. For instance, it turns out that camels are indigenous to the Thar desert. The people living in this area were the first in the world to domesticate the animal who then went on to sell them to various civilizations throughout the millennia.

Additionally, Roma are thought to have originated from this desert. Having split off from the Dom people during their migration out of the Thar desert approximately 1,000 years ago, the Roma now live all over the world.

The Danakil


This magnificent looking desert is located in the Afar region of northern Ethiopia and is situated on the border with Djibouti and Eritrea. This desert is actually a natural depression on the African continent which is caused by the African continental plate moving away from the Asian continental plate.

The beautiful colors seen here are the result of various hydrothermal vents depositing minerals into the soil.

One of these minerals is salt. For thousands of years salt has been worth more than its weight in gold, and the people who live in this desert – called the Afar people – have been mining salt for over 4,000 years, transporting the valuable mineral via camel to markets all over Ethiopia.

The Sonora

This desert is known for its huge saguaro cactuses as well as its rolling red hills and scrubland. Despite being a desert, snow routinely dusts this beautiful landscape which borders the Gulf of California and crosses between Arizona and Mexico.

Many people have lived and become captivated by this beautiful desert, including seventeen native American tribes, as well as being home to both Phoenix and Tucson Arizona.

Although people don’t typically use camels or see huge sand dunes in this desert, the red rock formations, as well as the greenery which arrives during the winter and spring, are definitely worth the trip!

This is one of the best places to visit if you are after some stunning scenery, and you want a trip to remember.

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

It might be a little sad, but visiting the elephant orphanage is also an important part of Sri Lankan culture. And, as a plus point, you get to see some really cute baby elephants just chilling! Adorable factor – 10! This beautiful sanctuary, flanked by the stunning landscape, and the warm, shimmering Sun, is one of the most beautiful places on the island.

Polonnaruwa

While you’re here, you need to take in a bit of culture and history as well as the stunning views. And, one of the best ways to do this is to make sure you check out the ancient city and ruins of Polonnaruwa. This is one of the most staggering and sensational places in the whole country, and you have to visit if you want your Sri Lanka trip to be anything like complete. Full of stunning architectural treasures, this place is screaming out for you to bring a camera!

Sigiriya Rock Fortress

One of the most iconic and dramatic sights in all of Sri Lanka, this is a place unlike any you’ve ever seen before.

There are so many amazingly beautiful sights and experiences in Sri Lanka. And, it’s important that you make sure you enjoy as much of it as possible.

The beautiful weirdness of made-up family words

by

Laura Falin

posted in Life

Does your family have secret words or a family language that only you all understand?

You’re not alone. Last week, doctoral language student Iva Cheung asked people on Twitter what words their families made up. She called it “familiolect” (like a dialect, but just in your own family)…and she got some wonderful responses. Often these start as mispronunciations from little kids (my favorite), or inside jokes that only your family gets.

Okay, that makes total sense to me.

Growing up, we had a number of these in our house. My sister would always talk about going to the dentist, where he jizzled her teeth to get them clean (also makes perfect sense — both of those words sound exactly like what they mean!). She also frinkled a lot.

Once my husband misread a sign that said “Dinosaur Journey” and the kids now like to ask for dinosaur jerky as a tasty snack. And when my son was learning to read, he read the “U.S. Bank” sign as “us bank” — so of course that’s what we all call it now.

Hoda Kotb shared on TODAY that when her daughter delivers “the big message,” it’s time for a diaper change.

Or you could go with “bottom event.” I like that.

Now I’m hungry. For some hostages.

The woman in the following family had so many that she made a family dictionary, which is a really sweet idea.

Moms in the BabyCenter Community have also shared code names they have for nursing. Many of them sound similar even though they’re all made up, which I find fascinating.

“When my son wanted to nurse, he would make a sound like ‘neh neh’ so now I ask him if he wants ‘neh neh’ and he understands.”

“I call it ‘nom noms’ to my 5-day-old!”

“We called it ‘nummies.’ Nummies has become an all-encompassing term. It can mean breastmilk or the containers from which it originates.”

We do have a few mispronounced words I’m glad didn’t stick in our family, though. One day my son came home from school, very excited to tell me that he learned about how our bodies digest things…and he proceeded to lecture me on how his food goes from his “small intesticles” to his “large intesticles” on it’s way out.

What made-up words or jokes only make sense to your family?

10 beautiful modern baby cribs to consider for your nursery

by

Joyce Slaton

posted in Products

Cribs are getting cooler all the time, with features formerly reserved for luxury brands now available at easy, sometimes even shockingly reasonable prices: brilliant colors, clear acrylic sides, innovative wood treatments, new shapes like ovals. If your taste runs towards the stylish, but your wallet isn’t necessarily groaning with cash, you may want to consider one of the following lovely options.

1. Ubabub Nifty Clear 3-in-1 Crib: With clear acrylic sides, this design-marvel of a crib will give your nursery a midcentury-modern spin. It coverts to a daybed, and then a toddler bed when your child’s outgrown the crib (the conversion crib is sold separately), and though, granted, it’s on the pricey side, but has the good looks of cribs that run into the $ 2000 range and above. Note that the toddler guard rail that turns the Nifty into a toddler bed isn’t clear — but it does come in walnut and white. (Amazon, $ 900; Ubabub Toddler Bed Conversion Kit for Nifty, Amazon, $ 100)

2. Dream On Me Folding Full Size Convenience Crib: It’s on wheels so you can move it anywhere in the house, and its mattress adjusts to two positions, so it can be used for a baby or a toddler. But the best feature of this crib is that it easily collapses to a flat package that’s a cinch to store, making this aptly named convenience crib very easy to keep in a closet at Grandma’s house, or in the basement for when young family members visit. (Amazon, $ 195-$ 330)

3. Babyletto Hula Oval Convertible Crib: Oval cribs are hot, and until relatively recently, would run you $ 1000 or far more at a specialty shop. But not only is Babyletto’s beautiful Hula a looker, it’s got solid function too. It arrives as a mini bassinet for your newborn (with a bassinet pad for sleep); as your baby grows, it transforms into a full-size crib (still with its oval shape), and then a toddler bed. The conversion kit to turn the kit into a full-size crib and then a toddler bed comes with the Hula, but (downside), the crib requires its own custom mattress, which adds another $ 200 to the price. (Amazon, $ 500-$ 700)

4. Little Seeds Monarch Hill Ivy Metal Crib: With eye-catching arches and spindles that look like they belong on a gingerbread Victorian house, the Ivy has heirloom appeal without the accompanying potential safety hazards of a vintage crib. It comes in colors with modern appeal, too — bronze, pink, grey, and our #1 favorite, gold, ideal for your white-and-gold or pink-and-gold nursery. Like the style? Little Seeds offers a number of other coordinating Monarch Hill pieces for the nursery, including a changing table, bunk bed, dresser, and night table. The Ivy doesn’t transform into another bed style like many other cribs — it’s just a crib, and once your child is able to climb out of it, you’re done using it. (Walmart, $ 170-$ 200).

5. Union 3-in-1 Convertible Crib: Like the Alissa, the Union is simple and comes in extra-cool colors: bright emerald, sunny yellow, subdued gray, and this winter-sky-blue (Union calls it “lagoon”). Adjust the mattress to four different heights as your baby grows, and change the crib to a toddler bed with a rail and then a daybed when you reach that stage. You don’t need anything extra to convert the Union into a daybed, but if you’d like to convert it to a toddler bed, note that the rail for the bed is often sold under the DaVinci name, since Union is a DaVinci brand that’s exclusive to Amazon. Look for the M3899 model number, or just follow our link. Note that the toddler rail isn’t currently available in all the Union’s colors, so you may have to put up with a two-tone effect. (Amazon, $ 110-$ 128; DaVinci Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, Amazon, $ 50)

6. Child Craft Parisian 3-in-1 Convertible Crib: It has a groovy low-slung curving shape and minimalist appeal — plus the Parisian coverts to a toddler bed and a day bed once the crib years are through. You’ll have to buy the toddler rail separately, but since the Parisian takes a standard crib mattress, you can find them for as low as $ 50, making this crib an incredible bargain. The Parisian comes in white, cherry finish, and our favorite, cool grey. (Amazon, $ 161; Child Craft Toddler Guard Rail, Amazon, $ 64)

7. Dream On Me Alissa Convertible 5-in-1 Convertible Crib: The Alissa wound its way into our hearts with its simple style and gorgeous, vivid color choices: nautical navy, dreamy sky blue, beachy coral, and this incredible emerald green. Alissa doesn’t stint on functionality, either, with a mattress that adjusts to 4 heights to fit your quickly growing baby. As befits the “5-in-1” part of its name, the Alissa converts to a toddler bed, a day bed, and then a full-size bed — wait, that’s only 4. The full-size bed can be used with or without a footboard, so Dream On Me’s counting that option. The conversion kit is sold separately in two pieces, as a toddler guard rail and bed frame — and if you go for a non-traditional crib color, you may want to buy the guard rail of the same color at the same time you buy the crib, to prevent having to go with a two-tone look later if you can’t find the right color. Dream on Me doesn’t manufacture its own bed frames so any standard “adjustable bed frame” sold at any retailer will work to convert the Alissa into a full-size bed — and color doesn’t matter, because the frame be hidden beneath your child’s mattress. (Alissa on Amazon, $ 130-$ 170; Dream on Me Universal Toddler Guard Rail, Amazon, $ 50)

8. Sloan Acrylic Convertible Crib: If you love the modern look of clear acrylic-sided cribs (but not the major price tag that comes with them), the Sloan may be what you’ve been looking for. The long sides of the Sloan are made with crystal-clear acrylic slats, with a white wood frame. The whole crib looks kind of like it’s floating on air, and your nursery (and your baby, too!) will quickly take on a styled-for-photos vibe. Unlike the similar Ubabub Nifty, the sold-separately guard rail that changes the Sloan into a toddler bed has clear slats — so you won’t lose the transparent look even when you switch over to the next stage. The Sloan’s conversion power stops at the toddler-bed stage — you can’t turn it into a daybed or full-size bed like some of the other cribs on this list. (Pottery Barn Kids, $ 480; Sloan Acrylic Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, Pottery Barn Kids, $ 111)

9. DaVinci Fairway 4-in-1 Convertible Crib: If “rustic,” “farmhouse,” or “shabby chic” are your design watchwords, you’ll love the weathered finish on DaVinci’s pine wood crib (not to mention the fact that it converts to a toddler bed, a daybed, and then a full-size bed with sold-separately accessories). If you really fall in love with the Fairway crib, you can buy a 3- or 4-drawer matching dresser for your baby’s nursery. DaVinci makes many different crib models, so make sure the accessories you buy are meant for the Fairway, or follow our links. (Buybuybaby, $ 300; DaVinci Toddler Bed Conversion Kit, Amazon, $ 70; DaVinci Hidden Hardware Full Size Bed Conversion Kit, Amazon, $ 82-$ 90)

10. Babyletto Lolly 3-in-1 Convertible Crib: With its cool two-tone styling in black and natural wood, the Lolly reminds some of a piano (it’s also available in all white, and white-natural); the slender feet of the Lolly give the crib an airy look, too. For a nice price, the Lolly comes with the conversion kit to turn it into a toddler bed with a safety rail, and then a daybed to tide you over until your child’s ready for a regular bed — it takes a standard-sized crib mattress too; no need to shell out for a custom-made model. (Amazon, $ 400)

The Most Beautiful Election Photos—Without the Politicians

In October 1976, the photographer William Eggleston traveled from his home in Memphis to Plains, Georgia, the home town of Jimmy Carter, who was days away from winning the presidency. He took pictures along the way, most of them in and around Plains. The results were first published in a very limited edition entitled Election Eve, a slightly edited version of which will be republished later this month by Steidl.

Ensemble: The Bold and the Beautiful

This is the final ensemble post of 2017 and we’re ending with a celebration. One real outfit, and one imaginary one, and everyone can participate. I wore my real one last week. I felt like wearing bright colours from head to toe. To some they would be clashing, but to my eye they are harmonious. I combined orange pants with a burgundy turtleneck, belt, booties and bag. I was going to wear my navy or cream coat, but topped the lot off with my shocking pink man coat instead. I also added an orange pom-pom to the bag. The collection below shows the exact items from my wardrobe.

The second outfit is the imaginary one I would wear to the YLF ball. I asked my Fairy Godmother for a long-sleeved classic tomato red ballgown so that I could make a statement with colour without feeling cold. I completed the look with a multi-strand pile of vintage Chanel pearls, a cream faux fur shawl, and a gold clutch. My Fairy Godmother added sky high gold pumps to keep me from tripping on my train. I can of course, magically walk in the four inch pumps just for the night.

Over to you. What was your boldest outfit of the year, and what are you wearing to the YLF ball? Remember that your Fairy Godmother can make any ball outfit happen. Feel free to post your bold and beautiful outfits on our forum. ‘Tis the season to be festive!

Beautiful lakeside towns in Europe

ADVERTISEMENT


Europe is one of the finest vacation destinations in the world and a stunning continent that needs to be discovered right now! If you’ve never been to Europe, you’re in for a treat, as there is so much diversity here. You get some of the amazing big cities where everything is urban and technological, and then there are areas of serene rural beauty, with sprawling beaches, rolling hills, and Mediterranean climates.

If you’re looking for a magical getaway that you will remember for years to come, Europe is definitely the place to enjoy this. This continent is home to some of the most breathtaking surroundings, such as stunning lakes, and mountainous backdrops. If you want the perfect vacation choice, why not choose one of these incredible lakeside towns in Europe.

Lake Bled, Slovenia

We have to say, Slovenia is one of the most underrated tourist destinations in Europe. So many people pass it by in favor of better-known locations, but we would definitely recommend it. The gorgeous Lake Bled is one of the most jaw-dropping lakes in Europe and has stunning views of the Julian Alps mountain range in the background. There is a quirky little church on an island in the middle of the lake that is well worth a visit, and the views are simply unforgettable.

Plockton, Loch Carron, Scotland

Recently, the Scottish Highlands were rated as the most beautiful travel destination in the world, and it’s tough to argue with that. If you ever get the chance to go, head to the small lakeside town of Plockton, on the shores of Loch Carron. This little village has less than 400 inhabitants, and, thanks to the North Atlantic Drift it enjoys a very un-Highland type of climate. In fact, you even get palm trees growing here. It’s a fascinating place because it’s unlike so much of the rest of the Highlands, but it’s certainly no less beautiful.

Salò, Lake Garda, Italy

Italy is one of the best places in Europe to visit because it has so much wonderful diversity in terms of geography and climate. And, as stunning lakeside towns go, Salò is one of the most picturesque in the world. Lying on the banks of Lake Garda, this pretty town has kept its medieval touch and has some Gothic architecture thrown into the mix as well. It has a huge promenade that is well worth checking out, not to mention some views that are truly to die for.

Annecy, France

In the Haute-Savoie region of southeastern France, the town of Annecy lies on the shores of Lake Annecy, right where the lake feeds the Thiou River. Stunning alpine views of the surrounding area make this one of the best towns to visit. And that’s before we even get to mentioning the famous lake. With canals running through the center, and a famous old castle, you simply have to check out the ‘Venice of the Alps.’

These are just a few of the most remarkable and memorable lakeside towns in Europe. You have to do as much as you can to figure out what the best sort of town for you would be (although hopefully we’ve given you a headstart). There are so many of these stunning locations throughout Europe, and we’ve provided you with just a snapshot of some of the best. Your introduction to the beautiful side of Europe is just beginning, and these are places you should keep in your mind!

15 beautiful holiday books to read with your children

by

Laura Falin

posted in Products

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is snuggling up with kids in their pajamas (and more often than not me in mine, too!) under a thick blanket on the couch and reading to them before bed. Even my older kids will wander in and pause to hear these stories I’ve been reading since they themselves were little. We may plan exciting trips to get trees or ice skate or visit Santa, but these quiet reading times at the end of the day are the ones I secretly hope stay with the kids when they’re grown.

15 beautiful holiday books to read with your children

(Oscar and the Eight Blessings; Amazon, $ 9.57)

Layering Beautiful Shades of Brown

A new outfit from Daniella Robins of LellaVictoria, whom we introduced to YLF in July 2013.

Daniella continues to be a layering wizard with this Autumn outfit in beautiful shades of brown. She’s layered a white turtleneck under a toffee cashmere sweater with deep V-neck, and has tucked both into a pair of statement culottes. The white echoes the retro swirl pattern on the below-the-knee culottes and adds crispness to the look. Tucking the oversized V-neck sweater tempers its volume. Our blogger then added  a chic dark brown wool maxi gilet for a dressy dramatic effect. Belting the gilet creates structure and emphasizes the waistline. Ankle socks in a third shade of brown and suede block-heeled pumps in an orange-y brown make for a fashion-forward effect. The V-shape vamp on the shoes helps to lengthen the leg line when wearing midi skirts or culottes. A cute cream retro bag and oversized pendant earrings with neutral wood effect finish off the look to perfection.

Exploring the beautiful Reykjavik

ADVERTISEMENT


Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, and one of the great chameleon cities of the world. A decade ago, after slumping tourism and a poor economic book, Reykjavik decided to reinvent itself and now ranks as one of the most popular destination cities in the world. The secret behind its success? Push the natural beauty and wonder of this amazing city and its geographical location. And now Reykjavik is a city booming with tourism, and one of the most stunning places we’ve ever seen.

It has metamorphosed into a city for those seeking a health and wellness destination, as well as those of us out there suffering from the wanderlust bug. Iceland is such a striking and unusual country, and this is a big part of what makes Reykjavik so appealing as a destination. We’re going to look a little closer at the beauty and wonder of this European gem.

Geothermal springs

You’re in for a treat, for Reykjavik is one of the most uniquely stunning cities in the world. There is so much here, and we’re going to try to narrow it down to a few must-see things. Definitely make sure you check out the hot springs – the city is full of them, and they are refreshing, healthy, and stunningly beautiful. Nautholsvik is one of the awesome beaches here, and it contains a natural spring. But, the Blue Lagoon is definitely the most famous place to go, where you can indulge in the natural hot springs full of minerals.

Whale watching

No trip to Iceland would be complete without a spot of whale watching, and there are some great opportunities to do this in Reykjavik. The natural environment attracts these beautiful creatures in abundance, and the best thing to do is book a whale watching tour that leaves from the harbor. This is the sort of unique thing you’re rarely going to get the chance to do again, so make the most of it. There are so many different whales you can see here – Blue whales, Sperm whales, Killer whales, Humpback whales – the list is endless! Whale watching is the perfect way of enjoying the beautiful landscape of Reykjavik, combined with the stunning beauty of whales in their natural habitat.

Take in the landscape

We’ve mentioned how stunning the landscape of Reykjavik is, and now it’s time to really explore it properly. The way to do that is to hike the city. Some of the main points of interest here are the stunning mountain peaks, gorgeous valleys, glaciers of ice, gushing rivers, and the Golden Circle. You are spoilt for choice here, as the beautiful landscape attacks your senses, and you get to enjoy the stunning scenery. Where else in the world can you find stunning lava fields, epic fjords, and bubbling hot springs all in the same place? Magical!

As you can see, Reykjavik is one of those places that is full of extreme natural beauty and elegance. This is not the place to come if you want a city break spent shopping and dining. This is somewhere that demands a love of the great outdoors, and the willingness to be swept away and caught up in the stunning landscapes of a beautiful city. There are so many things to see here that you can’t experience anywhere else in the world. Reykjavik might not be the cheapest city in the world, but it’s one of the most unforgettable.

5 beautiful Natural Pools Around The World

ADVERTISEMENT


The world is simply stuffed full of so much natural beauty these days, and there’s so much you need to try to experience. If you don’t get out and see the world, you’re going to be seriously missing out. Make sure you do a bit of traveling and experience all the wonderful beauty and majesty the world has to offer. Start with some of the most stunning natural pools on Earth. These are the perfect places to visit for either a spot of secret swimming or to just marvel at the magnificence of them.

The Devil’s Pool

Judging by the name, you’d imagine this to be a pretty intimidating place, and you’d be exactly right. The Devil’s Pool is an infinity pool located in Zambia, which overlooks Victoria Falls, one of the world’s biggest waterfalls. You’d have to be quite the daredevil to swim atop these amazing falls. Yes, it might be the best experience of your life, but, we don’t like the idea of falling over the edge of that waterfall! When the water levels drop, the Devil’s Pool has minimal current, making it perfect for swimming and getting a stunning view.

Figure Eight Pools

If you want to enjoy one of the great natural wonders of the world, make sure you visit Sydney and check out the Figure Eight pools. These pools, aptly named for their shape, are located in Royal National Park. They are naturally formed this way, and definitely an experience well worth having. Once a secret hotspot, the pools have become more popular with tourists in recent years, but, that’s no reason to shun them. Bear in mind it is in an isolated location, and you may well have to hike to get there – totally worth it though.

Barton Springs Pool

There is another great natural pool in Texas (Hamilton Pool Preserve), but this is our favorite. Dating back centuries, and once used by Native Americans, this pool is formed by freshwater underground springs. It covers more than 3-acres, and holds a temperature of around 65-degrees all year round! Admission is free during the day as well, so this is the perfect place to come for a wonderful swim, and a serene environment.

Cenote Ik Kil

Mexico has loads of natural pools, but there are none quite as iconic and breathtaking as this one near Chichen Itza. Surrounded by lush greenery, hanging vines, trees, and rainforests, it’s 85-feet deep, and one of the most stunning natural swimming holes in the world. You will feel like you’re in a different world when you pay a visit here. It will almost feel like time stands still as you swim and bask in the natural beauty of the exceptional surroundings. And, you can even go visit Chichen Itza afterward too!

Jellyfish Lake

Located in Palau, this lake might seem like everyone’s worst nightmare, but bear with us! Have you ever wanted to swim with jellyfish?! Okay, probably not. Well, what about if they couldn’t sting you? That’s the big appeal of Jellyfish Lake, and one of the main reasons to come swimming here. Because of this unique opportunity, and the truly stunning surroundings, it makes our list as one of the most beautiful natural pools in the world.

So, there we have it, some of the most gorgeous natural pools in the world. These are places you can go swimming, or simply lounge around and relax for a while. One thing is sure though, these places are so iconic that you’re not going to forget them in a hurry!

Beautiful places you didn’t know existed in Europe

ADVERTISEMENT


When it comes to finding your perfect vacation destination, most of us like to avoid the tourist traps – because nobody likes to bump into thousands of sweaty bodies all day every day and miss the beautiful sights because of the constant wall of selfie sticks. Thankfully, there are some hidden gems on one of the most incredible continents in the world; Europe. Europe is full of wild and wonderful spots that have been left untouched by travel agents and tour guides. Check out the most beautiful places you didn’t know existed in Europe.

Burano, Italy

If you’re going to take a trip to Burano, you’ll need to remember your sunglasses – and not because of the sun. Located just a short boat trip away from the bustling streets and canals of Venice is the island of Burano. This little island is truly a sight to behold. With houses of every color adorning the bright green canalways, you won’t know where to look first. Luckily, you’ll get a good view of the Instagram-worthy location, as very few people take the trip to this color-crazed residence. Follow the canals to reach the enormous bell tower, and look over towards those who are slightly less comfortable in Venice. Bonus.

Isle of Skye, Scotland

Choosing a destination in Europe is super easy; but for some reason, most people forget about Scotland. The Isle of Skye lies just off the coast of the north west of Scotland and is like a fairytale. There is no other way to describe this destination. It really is otherworldly. With mystical lakes surrounded by mountains, with some of the best sunsets in the United Kingdom, and some of the most beautiful little coastal towns, the Isle of Skye needs to be seen to be believed. No trip to the Isle of Skye would be complete without a trip to the Old Man of Storr, a rocky hill that looks like it has been taken from the pages of Lord of the Rings.

Sintra, Portugal

If you’re looking for a romantic getaway; look no further. Over the course of thousands of years, Sintra in Portugal has been the inspiration for hundreds of novelists, poets, and artists who have all been charmed by the intense romanticism of this city. This lovable little city is nestled in between the statuesque Sintra Mountains on one side, and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, and boasts some of the most impressive architecture in Europe. You can explore the numerous hilltop Romanticist palaces and castles, the beautiful gardens, the colorful buildings, and views across the impressive ocean and surrounding forests. This place will truly take your breath away.

Hvar, Croatia

Unfortunately for lovers of beautiful places, tourists are slowly but surely realizing the true potential of Croatia and taking over. Thankfully, they haven’t managed to steal all of the hidden gems just yet. Hvar is still relatively unknown to the tourist trade and is ready and available for true adventurers to explore. This Mediterranean island is full of terracotta roofs, hilltop fortresses, beautiful churches, and beautiful scenery. Surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, this destination offers some of the most astounding beaches in Europe on the coast. Yet, as you go inland, you’re greeted by magnificent fields of lavender that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Bohinj, Slovenia

Thankfully, the whole of Slovenia is normally kept off the tourist destination list – which is great for us folks who love to explore untouched gems. Although you have the whole country to choose from, Bohinj is one of our favorite destinations in Slovenia. Bohinj is less of a destination and more of a landscape.

How Becoming a Beautiful, Bald Bella Gave Life to a New Business

On Episode 2 of Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, Ehdra – the “Beautiful Bald Bella” Frazier from Atlanta, pitched her product, Dome Essentials. Brandon Andrews of Values Partnerships sat down with Frazier after the show for an exclusive one-on-one conversation.

Brandon Andrews: Tell us the Dome Essentials story.

Ehdra “The Beautiful Bald Bella” Frazier:  My experience is in marketing, small business development and business administration. I’ve worked alongside pastors, CEO’s and visionary leaders in the corporate and nonprofit communities for over 25 years. In 2012, I decided it was time to stop helping everyone else achieve their visions and dreams and start a new journey of my own.

I had just turned 50 and felt it was time to do some new things in my “Round 2.” So I made the big chop (cut off all my hair) gave myself a big 50th birthday celebration, recorded a single, and started packing in preparation to relocate to a big city. The decision to move to Atlanta to be near my oldest daughter and two grandchildren seemed like a great fit. While living in Atlanta, I began to notice that wearing my bald head was not an issue as it was up north. It was welcomed and I was admired. I felt comfortable sporting my bald head and was surprised at how many women and men began to acknowledge my look; commenting on the confidence and boldness I exuded.

I wore hair pieces, wigs, hats, and scarves since middle school. Many could not tell the difference between my hair and the “doos” I sported. No one ever told me, but I now believe I had female pattern baldness (or alopecia) around the edges of my head. My hair was so thin and fine that I could not wear many popular styles most of my life. So when India Aire’s song, “I am not my hair,” first came out, my response was, “I am not my hair, but it sure helps!”

 

I began to notice that the things which used to stress me were no longer issues like: going swimming, riding in a car with the windows down, sitting comfortably on the couch and having my hair push up, doing modern dance with a scarf to hold my hair on tight, and the worst, riding a roller coaster (which I loved the most).  I began to notice that my stress levels were reduced significantly as a result of not looking over my shoulder or being concerned about my hair.  I never realized how much stress I was under until then.  I felt a new calling emerge. I was already encouraging by nature; but even more so now. It became my mission to stop every person I met to proclaim: “You are rocking that beautiful dome!” So I began calling women, Beautiful Bald Bellas, and men, Beautiful Bald Beaus. The name stuck so I was branded the original, Beautiful Bald Bella.

Unsuccessful in locating a natural shave system, void of toxins and damaging chemicals, God gave me the blueprint to create my own. In the spring of 2015, while living in the lower level of my daughter’s home, and unable to find work, I had a dream (a Noah experience, I call it). I saw a complete business model for an all-natural shave system, the manufacturing, reselling, marketing, branding, packaging, shipping and delivering processes and all the people involved in the entire process. I even saw Mr. Steve Harvey in this dream, along with some other dome centered items; and in the late summer of 2016, Dome Essentials Inc. was born. I had found my new purpose.

A prototype for The Dome Essentials natural shave system was completed in less than a month. Many men and women in Ohio and Georgia sampled and tested the product. I was ecstatic at the results. The system includes: The Shave Oil—which softens stubble and prepares the scalp for the shave; The Astringent—nourishes the scalp and deposits essential nutrients into the skin, as well as soothes, repairs, and cleans the pores after the shave; and the After Shave Cream—which conditions and protects the scalp.

The key natural ingredients include: Aloe Vera, Tea Tree, Shea Butter 100% pure, natural oils, organic essential oils (which are used to clean the skin, control irritation, and improve circulation are among a few of their benefits); vitamins E and D for healthier skin, and other good stuff. The Dome Essentials natural shave system is a faster, cleaner, healthier shave experience!

 

Does your scalp need special care? How does it differ from other parts of the body?  

 

Yes, all scalp skin is thick, has several layers to protect the brain, and unlike the rest of the body, the scalp has extra oil glands. Additionally, most people have an abundance of hair for added protection, but it can create a problem for the scalp when we add chemical overload, shampoo goo, conditioners with little or no healthy ingredients, and other products that can clog the pores and cause dandruff and disease to the skin. Many people neglect the scalp all together and focus solely on the hair.

 

How was your experience pitching on Funderdome? How did you prepare for your pitch?

 

My experience being on the set of Steve Harvey’s Funderdome was amazing.  The staff treated me like a rock star!  Mr. Harvey was such a gentleman and is a hoot on stage.  He kept the dialogue entertaining and intriguing. A bit too intriguing in my case.  I laughed so hard during my segment, trying not to blush, that I couldn’t complete my product pitch.

For me, this was my opportunity to jump head first into deep waters. To win or lose was not the top focus for me. Just being showcased on national television and given the opportunity to share my product was a blessing. Then to have it re-run two weeks later was more than I could have asked for. It gave me a double boost of sales!

What role has faith played in starting and growing your business? 

 

Have you heard Ericka Campbell’s song: I love God, you don’t love God? What’s wrong wit chu? I really do love Jesus and trust God to fulfill every promise in His Word to us.  So I pray and thank God every day for this new vision and for using me to carry it out for Him. He provides every resource. He opens every door. I try to pray before every major decision and step I take. God’s way is so much better than mine. He knows what’s ahead and I try to listen closely for cues and notes from Him to get everything done.

 

Give us a post-show update. How do you plan to grow your business in 2017?    

Since the show aired, business has done well! Dome Essentials was invited to be listed on Amazon Exclusives, one of the largest retailers on the planet. Having Dome Essentials highlighted under the Funderdome banner gave us the extra push we needed.

I believe in the philosophy, if you build it, they will come! So, I have established a customer service call center in preparation for the ABUNDANCE of business we will receive, and have a blue print for our manufacturing and production facility already in the works. I’m getting my team ready!

Next steps are to manufacture the Dome Essentials natural shave system in volume, create inventory to expand, present to select resellers, and begin production on the additional items in the line. I have a special addition to the line coming in 2018, which is very exciting and I can’t wait to launch it.

What do entrepreneurs like you need to be successful? How can shows like Funderdome help?   

 

I encourage every entrepreneur to pay attention to every connection. Every person you meet has a purpose. Every conversation or meeting is not by chance, it has a purpose. You need a team or a TRIBE to manage a business and be successful in creating a legacy. Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to do anything meaningful in life! Every one of us has a gift or gifts to make a positive impact on the world; and each of us needs the other’s gift or gifts to make it work. We need each other.  So, find your tribe!

Husband Turns Spare Closet Into A Beautiful Vanity For His Nurse Wife

Christmas came early this year for wife and mom of three Kari Koelsch.

After casually mentioning to her husband Todd that she wished she had her own space to get ready in, he decided to convert a spare closet in their Tiffin, Ohio home into a vanity where she could do her makeup. And it’s all kinds of gorgeous: 

“I was talking about how we are always rushed when we are getting ready to go somewhere,” Kari told The Huffington Post. “We are very busy and I mentioned it would be nice if I had my own place to get ready. That way none of my things would be in his way.”

The couple, who tied the knot in July 2015, have number of other home improvements they are hoping to tackle. But Todd prioritized the vanity project so it would be complete in time for the holidays and Kari’s birthday, which is also in December. 

“My husband always puts me first, which is nice,” she said. “As a nurse, I don’t often get the luxury of putting myself first. So it’s so sweet that my husband does.”

Todd told his wife not to look in the closet until he was finished, but ultimately Kari couldn’t stop herself from sneaking a peek at his progress. 

“I was completely shocked when I saw it,” she told HuffPost. “I could not have asked for anything more beautiful and perfect for me.”

On Sunday, Kari’s sister Molly Maksemetz tweeted a before-and-after photo of the vanity closet. The sweet gesture clearly captured the Internet’s heart: the photos were retweeted more than 66,000 times. 

According to Kari, Todd is planning to complete the project this weekend. He still needs to add additional lights around the mirror, install another drawer and finish the seat.  

“I took those pictures when it wasn’t even done yet,” she said, referring to the images above. “I couldn’t wait! I was so excited.”

Kari told HuffPost that she is a fan of the color pink, sparkles and “anything girly.” So the decor, from the pink and white walls to the gold accents to the crystal light fixture, perfectly suits her taste.

“I’m almost shocked that Todd came up with such a feminine design,” she said. “He is a utility worker that’s usually covered in mud. He’s a big tough guy that wears work boots every day. I’m definitely surprised he thought of pink stripes.”

And while some couples may choose to buy pricey gifts for one another, Kari said it means so much more that her husband makes her presents instead. 

“When I look at my vanity I think of all the time he spent designing it and how much love he put into it,” she said. “He told me he didn’t spend very much money on it and most of the things he put in it were on sale. But when I look at it, all I can think of is how priceless it is to me. Money can’t buy the things I have.”

12 Pieces Of Safety Pin Jewelry To Wear For A Beautiful Cause

The unsettling rhetoric from Donald Trump’s campaign, as well as the countless acts of hate that have been reported in the days since his election, have left many people wondering how they can be an ally to those targeted by hateful actions and words. 

There’s one incredibly easy way to show your support ― wear a safety pin. Adapted from a movement that spread in the United Kingdom following the Brexit vote, Americans have been encouraged to wear safety pins on their clothing to signal solidarity. If you’re wearing a safety pin, it’s a sign that you’re a safe ally. 

According to an Instagram posted by user b00kn00k, wearing the pin shows that “immigrants, refugees and anyone else threatened by the hate and fear mongering of Trump and his many supporters can know that I care and will do all I can to combat xenophobia, racism, sexism and ableism.”

As it happens, safety pins happen to be lovely in design on their own accord, and have been the inspiration for jewelry of all different types. If you are looking to show your solidarity and want something a bit more permanent than a safety pin, here are 12 lovely pieces of jewelry to consider.

The Beautiful Discomfort of John Ridley’s American Crime

When many of us reach for our television remotes, we also grab our cell phones, computers or iPads to connect to Twitter, Facebook or some other social media site to engage with millions around the world as we tune in to our favorite shows. Watching television while interacting on social media is the new normal. For many, this new form of engagement is wonderful. Yet I’m curious as to whether this constant stimulation, connection and interaction ever really allows us to “feel” what we are witnessing.

Enter Academy Award winner (12 Years a Slave) John Ridley’s American Crime, a new ABC drama, which asks us to not just engage with others on social media, but to pause and engage with our hearts. Much of what we watch on television is a form of art, which has historically introduced us to many individuals, narratives, ideas and questions that challenge what we know (or think) to be true. As we engage with art, many of us experience moments of feeling uncomfortable. American Crime, set in Modesto, Calif., is a work of art that embodies this characteristic to captivate its audience in an unnerving way. As Executive Producer and creator John Ridley explains, “(the show is) edited so the audience will not disengage.”

American Crime begins with the murder of a young military veteran and the brutal assault of his wife, who is subsequently hospitalized and fighting for her life. As their parents are informed of this tragic news, the audience begins to become familiar with the world of other characters connected to the murder. “Unlike most television,” as Executive Producer Michael McDonald describes, “which focuses on the extremes, the poor or the privileged.”

American Crime centers itself on the lives of “everyday” Americans, and shows how complex and contradictory we all can be. As John Ridley states, “We like to think that we are consistent. And yet we are not. And that’s ok. After watching, I hope we all walk away knowing we are all a little of this and a little of that. Every person is complex. And complexity makes us beautiful and that’s ok and that uniqueness is beautiful.”

As viewers watch American Crime, seeing this “beauty” may not be immediately evident due to the uncomfortable subject matter that this drama so intentionally confronts. Salient issues including race, class, immigration, drug use, and faith are weaved throughout each episode, forcing the viewer to feel uneasy and without escape. Ridley wants this certain level of discomfort as he explains, “Discomfort is usually a sign of growth and change. I would like a level of discomfort. This is not business as usual or story telling as usual. This show will help us move out of our ruts. “

As our country celebrates 50 years since Selma and continues to brace for legislation on voting rights, immigration and marriage equality, moving out of our individual ruts and static thinking about how we engage with others is exactly what we need to achieve. As Michael McDonald explains, “I want people to examine and reflect on our own biases and get to a place where we can accept each other.”

Acceptance and forgiveness cannot happen without being self-reflective. American Crime, in many ways, holds up a mirror to us all, causing internal and hopefully external awareness to occur around the ways we care for each other. John Ridley explains, “We all carry biases. Can we see them and evolve?” That evolution is only made possible through feelings of discomfort. As we all tune in to watch American Crime while squirming in our seats and interrogating our prejudices, we should embrace the words of African American author Pearl Cleage, “Discomfort is always a necessary part of enlightenment,” and never turn away.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Marie Southard Ospina, an associate fashion and beauty editor with Bustle, decided to put beauty in the hand of the beholder, asking photo editors from around the world to Photoshop her profile picture and make her “beautiful.” Ospina was inspired by journalists Esther Honig and Priscilla Yuki Wilson, both of whom conducted similar experiments earlier this year. While Honig focused on how culture and beauty pertain to women, Wilson examined how culture and beauty pertain to race; but Ospina, a 23-year-old, plus-size woman, focused on the cultural relationship between weight and beauty.

In her Bustle piece, Ospina writes:

Having grown up predominantly in the first world, I’m aware that in countries like the U.S. or the U.K. being fat is (although quite common) perceived as an inherently negative thing. Stereotypes include, but are not limited to: laziness, selfishness, stupidity, naiveté and even a lower socioeconomic class. But I’m also aware that the notion of “thin is the only beautiful” doesn’t permeate the entirety of the world.

Editors from 17 countries, of varying skill levels, were paid between $ 5 and $ 30 to “make me look beautiful, whilst keeping in mind the looks they see in the fashion/beauty mags of their countries.”

(Story continues below.)

The results from her experiment proved surprising. Though Ospina thought most editors would digitally alter her bone structure and weight to make her look thinner, only three out of the 21 did just that.

“I was extremely positive about the results in the sense that I felt they showed just how different we all, as individuals, define and perceive beauty,” she wrote in an email to The Huffington Post on Thursday. “The reality is that the ‘beautiful’ we’re often taught to aspire to is quite linear, and rooted in being thin. But that’s just one type of beauty. I don’t think the experiment served to show that all of a sudden we, as a species, fat shame any less. Or that all of a sudden we are perfectly accepting of diversity in size. But it did show that defining this six-letter word is nearly impossible. And that’s kind of as it should be. We should all be entitled to our perceptions and our attractions. I don’t ever expect everyone in the world to look a plus-size body and think, ‘My god, he/she is stunning.’ But I hope for a day when the fact that a lot of people do find that larger body attractive isn’t met with such surprise, shock and sometimes anger.”

She said the response she has received from her experiment has been overwhelmingly positive, and she believes that is because people are “tired of being told there is only one kind of beauty.”

“I want women to know that they don’t have to be thin to be beautiful or worthwhile or important or good,” she wrote to HuffPost.

“We need to remember that beauty exists in all forms, styles, shapes, sizes, colors,” she added. “We need to remember that the fact that beauty is actually undefinable is, in of itself, a beautiful thing.”
