5 apps for a more successful family vacation

ADVERTISEMENT


When we say a ‘more successful’ family vacation we basically mean that anything could happen, especially on a family trip. Things can either go really well or terribly wrong. There was a time when things were simpler and life was, well, much easier. However, everything started changing once kids got in the picture. As much as we adore them, when parents take their kids away from their normal day-to-day routine (which can be unbearable sometimes on its own), let’s just say that they feel more free than ever, and that’s not always such a good thing. Free to scream more, to get lost more and to have horrible meltdowns in the most picturesque places. Don’t get us wrong, a family vacation can also be amazing because it’s a time for pure bonding, a precious time that you don’t always get in your everyday life.

Thankfully, in this day and age, parents have apps to pretty much save them from anything that could go wrong. Ok, maybe not anything but if they want to ‘survive’ a family vacation with their kids, there are a few apps that will come very handy. Some are more useful than others and some are just about pure fun, isn’t that what a vacation is all about? Who knows, maybe some parents will even consider going on another family vacation very soon. Everyone needs some technical help from time to time, and that’s where these 5 apps come in.

GateGuru:

GateGuru is the one app you absolutely need when traveling with kids. It will be a real lifesaver in case your flight gets delayed, or god forbid, cancelled. Based on your flight schedule and details, this app will give you real-time updates so you won’t need to waste any of your precious time. You will also get ,major discounts on travel-related features such as car rental and list of shops and restaurants you can find at the airport.

Yuggler:

Yey, you arrived at your destination, congratulations! Now, if you haven’t planned ahead of time (which is probably not the best idea) then you’ll be very thankful for Yuggler. This app is all about fun and keeping your kids busy. Depending on your area, it will offer you suggestions and opinions of things you can do based on other parents’ recommendations and photos. There’s an option to filter according to your kids’ age, the season you’re traveling in and more.

USA Rest Stops:

In the case of a family road trip or just in case you have long drives as part of your trip itinerary, you will com to realize that your kids need to go, A LOT! The number of breaks just go up as they get older. With USA Rest Stop, you will get to find different rest stops across the country so you will always know when the next stop will be. ‘Are we there yet?’ will become a whole lot endurable.

Postagram:

Postagram will let you send your relatives back home an interactive postcard that will get to their phone way faster than a normal postcard would, obviously. Your Instagram snaps will turn into postcards in just one click.

Plates Free Family Travel Game:

Remember that license plate game you used to play with your siblings and parents when driving around the country? Well, it just went from traditional to digital. Have your children search for different license plates in different states, that way you’ll burn another hour or two.

Holiday Party Sportcoats, UK Made Dress Shoes, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

J. Crew: 35% off select w/ READYTOPARTY

J. Crew

That 35% off code makes me think of this:

Or, this.

Anyway, I do believe this is the first time this season that J. Crew’s party-ready, velvet shawl collar sportcoats have gone on sale. And there’s time to get em’ in the door and tailored before the mistletoe gets hung. Nice to see their Oar Stripe collection getting the cut as well. Big thanks to Brandon D. for the tip!

 

Massdrop: Made in the UK Loake Cap Toes – $ 239.99 FINAL ($ 360)

Made in the UK Loake Cap Toes

Goodyear welted, Made in the UK, and your choice of either a smooth leather sole, or a studded dainite sole for grip. It IS UK sizing though. So, most are gonna wanna size down a full size. Just be careful with that. Estimated ship date is December 19th. Final sale of course since it’s Massdrop.

 

GAP: 40% off Everything no exclusions w/ GIFT

GAP

Exclusion free? That means even their excellent, do anything casual – smart casual belts are getting the cut (leather accessories are usually excluded).

 

Allen Edmonds: $ 100 off Nomad Chelseas

AE Nomad Chelseas

The pearl clutching over the “new” Allen Edmonds has really hit a fever pitch. Its become a tiresome sport now, by some, to rag on what Allen Edmonds has been up to. Yes, some of it isn’t good. But that doesn’t mean the whole company is aflame. Yet. And I’ve had good luck with the Nomad collection. Super comfortable and wearable. And no, the “featherwelt” construction isn’t a cemented construction. It’s 360 Goodyear. Look, I hate to be an Allen Edmonds apologist. I don’t like everything the new owners (Caleres) are doing. But there’s still plenty to really like about AE. To me. For now.

 

Club Monaco: Extra 30% off Sale Items

Club Monaco

There doesn’t seem to be a ton in the Club Monaco sale section right now? But an extra 30% off is always appreciated. Some tempting cold weather stuff too, like that plaid coat and that wide color selection for their simple snap wrist gloves. No code needed here. Extra 30% off happens at checkout.

 

BONUS  Brooks Brothers: 30% off Select Sportcoats, 2 1818 suits for $ 1499

Big fan of Brooks Brothers sportcoats. Regent fit is more of an athletic fit, while the Milano is a true slim. Lots of exclusions, but there are some great looking jackets in there.

Your New Baby Will Cost More Than You Imagined. Here are 5 Ways to Save

The parenting books tell when you can expect your baby to reach physical milestones. The parenting classes teach you the proper way to bathe an infant and change a diaper.

But new parents, who are projected to spend an average of $ 233,610 from birth through age 17, are often clueless and unprepared when it comes to how to manage their financial lives after having a baby.

Laura Adams, host of the “Money Girl” podcast, sat down with Andrea Woroch, an expert on how consumers can save money, to discuss common money mistakes new parents make. Woroch also draws advice from her experience as a mom to a 2-year-old, with another baby on the way.

5 Financial Mistakes New Parents Make

“Having a baby is certainly a joyous time, but it can also be an emotionally and financially stressful time,” Adams says.

If you’re planning a family, learn from these new-parent money blunders so you’ll start your family off on a better footing.

Mistake No. 1: Not Building Savings

Having a baby comes with a lot of responsibility — and a lot of new expenses. It’s important to build up a savings buffer.

You may lose out on earning income if you or your partner takes time away from work after the baby arrives. On top of that, there are additional costs each month, like higher health insurance premiums and all the unexpected things that crop up, like ordering takeout on those days when you’re just too exhausted to cook.

When you plan to have kids, it’s smart to stash money in a high-yield online savings account. Also look into ways to cut costs, like lowering your monthly grocery bill.

Mistake No. 2: Not Preparing for Child Care Costs

Child care tends to be one of the most expensive recurring costs parents face in the first few years. However, a recent survey conducted by The Penny Hoarder showed about 85% of parents surveyed did not save up for child care costs before having a baby.

Doing research ahead of time can help parents know what to expect. There are also ways to cut costs, like finding more affordable care options or trading free babysitting with friends who have kids.

Mistake No. 3: Not Getting Life Insurance

Celebrating a new life isn’t usually the time when you think about end-of-life preparations. But buying life insurance is a smart money move when you have a little one who depends on you.

It’s good to have coverage for at least six to eight times your annual salary, but you should have life insurance even if you’re currently a stay-at-home parent.

Mistake No 4: Overspending on Baby Gear

It’s tempting to buy all those cute little baby clothes, snuggly toys and that vibrating rocker everyone swears you’re going to need, but infants can get by without all the extras.

Save money by clearly defining your needs and wants. Utilize hand-me-downs and buy gently used gear instead of paying top dollar for new stuff your kid will outgrow in a matter of months.

Mistake No. 5: Not Saving for College Early Enough

The magic of compound interest lies in saving early. It might seem odd to save for college when your little one’s still in diapers, but it’s the best way to optimize your college savings.

A 529 college savings plan is a great vehicle to get funds together for your child’s future education. You can even ask friends and family to contribute in lieu of birthday or holiday gifts.

Listen to the podcast for more advice on handling finances as a new parent.

Nicole Dow is a senior writer at The Penny Hoarder. She is the mother of a 4-year-old and has made nearly ALL the money mistakes as a new parent.

This was originally published on The Penny Hoarder, which helps millions of readers worldwide earn and save money by sharing unique job opportunities, personal stories, freebies and more. The Inc. 5000 ranked The Penny Hoarder as the fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. in 2017.

Monday Sales Tripod – Nordy Rack’s Clear the Rack, J. Crew Oar Stripe Shoes & Boots Sale, & More

The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait til the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.

Editor’s Note: Yes we’re posting today. For the last few years we’ve sat the “Veterans Day” sales out because the term just sounds odd (much like Memorial Day sales). But after hearing from more than a few Vets, our silence has probably been misplaced. Word is even stores on Military bases have Veterans Day sales, so, while much of the world sees November 11th (and the observance around it) as a solemn occasion, here in the States it’s a bit different. Our policy on keeping quiet on Memorial Day won’t change, but for Vets day, we’ve been given the green light from you guys in the Military. Thanks for all that you do.

 

#1. Nordstrom Rack: Extra 25% off Clearance Items

Nordstrom Rack

Not only is Nordstrom proper running a big fall sale, their outlet branch Nordstrom Rack is running an extra 25% off clearance items. That means prices that have seriously bottomed out. No code needed here. Prices are as marked online. Sale ends today.

 

#2. Jomashop: Extra 25% off Select Citizen Watches w/ CTZ25

Citizen Watches

Not a bad price for the Nighthawk. And that Promaster certainly could have been included in our recent best desk divers round up.

 

#3. J. Crew: 30% off w/ FRIENDS (or 35% off for rewards members w/FAMILY)

J. Crew

Getting another mention because I don’t recall all of those shoes getting that discount last week when this sale launched? I don’t have any in-person experience with their new oar-stripe shoe collection, but they’re claiming Italian leathers and Goodyear Welts. Don’t forget that you can save 35% (instead of just 30%) by simply signing up for their free rewards program. Prices above reflect that 35% off.

 

BONUS  Lands’ End 50% off Full Price (no limit) w/ GOLD & 9624

I can’t recall the last time Lands’ End did something like this. Usually there’s a caveat of just one item getting the deal when they go half off. So half off all full price items? No limit? Not bad at all.

 

BONUS II  Nordstrom Fall Sale Still Going on

Full picks over here. And as always, everything ships and returns for free thanks to Uncle Nordy.

Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Bonobos: New Arrivals & 25% off $ 175+ w/ QUARTEROFF

Bonobos

Good gravy. (And it is the month for gravy, no?) Bonobos stuff starts out expensive. Real expensive. But the styling sure does appeal to some of you guys, from what I can tell (me too in some cases). 25% off isn’t an extra 40% off sale, but this stuff is just in. And 25% off is better than the normal 20% off code. And it’s that kind of hard-hitting analysis that makes me the clown who runs this ship.

UPDATE: So this is 25% off $ 175+… not just 25% off across the board. Sorry guys, got some bad intel on that one. Anything under $ 175 in the picks above is gonna need an additional small item, from say the sale section, to trip that 25% off.

UPDATE II: Turns out it’ll be 25% off no min between 2pm ET and 4pm ET today?

 

J. Crew: 30% off w/ FRIENDS (or 35% off for rewards members w/ FAMILY)

J. Crew

AND it works on sale stuff too. AND it appears that the classic fit, wider lapel, Moon Mills herringbone blazer is back and up for the code. The darn things aren’t even getting excluded at checkout like they were a couple days back (despite saying they WERE up for the code). So… have at it. Don’t forget that their new rewards program is super easy to sign up for. Just your email and you’re good to go.

 

Huckberry: $ 30 – $ 40 off Buffalo Jackson Bags

Buffalo Jackson

Not the biggest price drop, but they are pretty darn handsome. I think (think?) these are imported from Mexico? Not sure. Free shipping and free returns at least.

 

EXPRESS: 40% off Everything

Express Leather Chukka

Seems like EXPRESS has been doing 40% off quite a bit lately, but, no complaints here. Those Red Wing ripoffs? Total guilty pleasure. They’re not half bad for around $ 80. Somewhere between a boot and a sneaker (the sole is really squishy/foam based). The leather isn’t half bad either. Will they last a lifetime like Red Wings? Of course not. But if you want something a little lighter weight and easier on the wallet, then might be worth a shot. Full review coming soon. Ships and returns for free.

 

GAP: 40% off Everything w/ FFTIME + Extra 10% off w/ BEST

GAP

Was set to expire but they’ve extended it, and added a stackable extra 10% off code. A couple of intriguing new arrivals have hit GAP’s site just in time for their friends and family sale.

 

BONUS Massdrop: UK Made Loake Kempton Chukkas – $ 199.99 FINAL ($ 300)

Loake Kempton Chukkas

They’re back! One heck of a pair of boots for just under $ 200. The problem? It’s friggin’ Massdrop. So it’s final sale. Also, beware of sizing. Sized in UK sizes. Some say go down a full size, some say go down just half a size. Full review here.

 

BONUS II  J.C.F.: 30%40% off Select items w/ 2DAYSONLY

J. Crew Factory seemed to have really cut back on its codes and promos in the fall, so 30% – 40% off feels like a rare treat. Not everything is getting the 40% off cut, but finally some of their fall sportcoats are NOT excluded from a promotion. Big fan of those cotton fisherman sweaters. Especially since they come in a slim fit.

Endometriosis: A guide to symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and more

The chronic condition can feel overwhelming, so we asked some experts for their help and insight

endometriosis

Endometriosis affects one in 10 of us, and an estimated 1.5 million women in the UK alone. But despite it being so widespread, there’s little awareness of what the condition entails (it’s not just heavy, painful periods) and how it can be managed.

With this in mind, we grilled a couple of ‘endo experts’ to help you better understand the condition. So whether you think you may have endometriosis, have just been diagnosed or simply want to learn more, read on for an in-depth guide.

What is endometriosis?

‘Endometriosis is the growth of endometrial-like tissue (the lining of the womb/uterus) outside of the uterus,’ explains Dr Anita Mitra, aka the Gynae Geek. ‘This is commonly on the ovaries, bowel, bladder and – in rare cases – on the liver and lungs.

‘The tissue responds to female hormones throughout the menstrual cycle as it would if it were in the womb; it thickens and then begins to fall away as it would during a period. However, because it’s not inside the womb with an escape route, it causes irritation, inflammation and often excruciating pain.

‘Eventually, it can cause scar tissue to develop, which in turn causes the normally mobile internal organs of the pelvis to become stuck together, further adding to the pain. Endometriosis can be staged during surgery according to where it is, how much there is and how much scar tissue is present. Stage I – minimal, Stage II – mild, Stage III – moderate, and Stage IV severe.’

Endometriosis symptoms

endometriosis

‘A lot of people think endometriosis is just heavy, painful periods; while that can be true, and it’s probably the most common symptom, it can be a whole lot more than that,’ explains Anita.

The most common symptoms include pain in your lower tummy or back, severe period pain that stops you doing normal activities and difficulty getting pregnant, according to the NHS.

‘Symptoms also depend on where exactly tissue is growing,’ Anita continues. ‘For example, excruciating pain on having your bowels open could be a sign that it’s growing on your bowel. Endometriosis also commonly causes bloating, diarrhoea and constipation, and the presence of scar tissue can make having sex painful.’

Diagnosis

Diagnosing endometriosis can feel like a long process. After seeing your GP, you’ll be referred to a gynaecologist and will also need an ultrasound. ‘Endometriosis doesn’t show up on scans or blood tests, but it’s important to do a scan for other causes of pain,’ Anita explains. The scan can pick up other signs of the condition, such as a certain type of cyst with a classic appearance.

‘A normal scan doesn’t rule out the diagnosis however – the only definitive way to diagnose is endometriosis through a laparoscopy, keyhole surgery that involves putting a camera through your belly button to look directly inside your tummy.’

How to treat endometriosis

endometriosis

The good news is that the condition is completely treatable through medication and surgery. ‘Surgery will sometimes be performed at the time of diagnosis, and involves releasing adhesions [fibrous bands that form between organs and tissue] and removing or destroying deposits and cysts,’ Anita explains.

‘This should always be performed by a specialist in endometriosis surgery and, although many people will notice an improvement, there is a high rate of recurrence in symptoms post-surgery.

‘Many surgeons will advise some form of hormonal therapy, such as the contraceptive pill, Mirena coil, or injections of something called a GnRH analogue. This is also an option for people who don’t want or need surgery; the aim is to block the hormones that cause tissue to grow and shed every month, thus reducing the amount of pain and bleeding.’

Endometriosis pain management

Anita advises that painkillers can be used, but when endometriosis pain is at its worst they may not be that helpful. ‘But it’s definitely worth a try,’ she adds. ‘Hormonal medications are the next step because they stop the build up and shedding of endometriotic plaques, which is a cause of a lot of the pain.

‘One of the biggest problems I see is constipation, which is surprisingly common because a lot of us don’t drink enough water or eat enough fibre. Constipation can make endometriosis pain worse, as it can make your stomach quite bloated and pull on the scar tissue, but it also means you need to strain more to open your bowels – which for many women is already incredibly painful. So simple things like increasing fibre and fluid intake could see an improvement in symptoms.’

A very common worry is that there’s a link between endometriosis and cancer, or even that it is a type of cancer – possibly because pain is such a red flag for so many of us – but that’s not the case.

‘While there are a few small studies suggesting a possible link, there are no large, robust studies confirming a causal link between endometriosis and endometrial cancer,’ Anita says.

Endometriosis and diet

endometriosis

First things first: there is no need to eliminate entire food groups from your diet. ‘There are a lot of people who have read about cutting out dairy and gluten, although there’s no solid evidence that these worsen endometriosis’ Anita says.

‘But I think everyone should be treated as an individual – what might work for one person may not work for another. If you want to try it, by all means go ahead and try to keep a symptoms diary. But if this doesn’t improve your symptoms, there’s no need to cut things out of your diet for fear it’s making your endometriosis worse.’

Nutritionist Henrietta Norton is not only an expert in nutritional female health, but also on what it’s like to live with endometriosis, having been diagnosed in her twenties. After her laparotomy and laser treatment, she sought the help of a nutritional therapist, which she says changed her life.

‘Research continues to prove that nutrition and diet can be fundamental to managing the condition,’ she says. ‘Studies show that taking the right nutrients through supplements can reduce symptoms significantly – 98% of the women in one study experienced improvements.’

So, what is it worth trying to consume more of in your diet?  ‘Zinc and magnesium are used in abundance during states of both physical and mental stress; as endometriosis is a state of physical stress, the demand is even greater than normal,’ Henrietta continues. ‘Women can actually lose up to half their magnesium supply during menstruation.

‘Endometriosis sufferers often experience heavy bleeding during their period, significantly reducing stores of iron. This, along with the trace mineral molybdenum, is required for the elimination of oestrogen (it’s thought that endometriosis is characterised by a dominance of oestrogen), and without adequate iron stores the pain management process can also be affected.’

‘Women with endometriosis have also been reported to have a lower intake of carotenoids (found in vegetables like carrots, kale and spinach) and D-glucarate (found in cruciferous vegetables, which blocks beta-glucoronidase) than women without endometriosis.’

Wild Nutrition’s Endometriosis Complex was created with the latest research in mind to use as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to managing the condition, Henrietta says. ‘Using natural forms of nutrients that are efficiently absorbed and used by the body in combination with organic herbs [magnesium, methionine, probiotics and more], the curated formulation addresses the complex condition affecting the immune and digestive systems and hormonal stability.’

Can you get pregnant with endometriosis?

endometriosis pregnant

A common worry is that an endometriosis diagnosis means pregnancy is unlikely or even impossible. But is this actually the case? ‘Not always,’ says Anita. ‘Generally it depends on the severity, but saying that, we do see a lot of women with severe endometriosis on the labour ward delivering their babies, so it’s not impossible.’

Case in point: Despite being told that she would never have children, Henrietta now has three sons, all of whom were natural conceptions and healthy pregnancies.

‘I also see a lot of patients being diagnosed with endometriosis during the investigative process for infertility,’ Anita continues. ‘On further questioning, the vast majority report a long-standing history of the common symptoms, which is saddening to hear as they often say they thought it was normal, or something they just had to tolerate as part of being a woman.

‘This is why we need to get more comfortable with talking to our friends and families about periods and women’s health – to know what is normal and what might require further investigation. And it’s also a reason we shouldn’t leave potential gynae issues right up until trying to get pregnant.’

As part of her mission to educate women everywhere about their reproductive health, Anita is about to publish her first book, which you can pre-order nowThe Gynae Geek: Your No-Nonsense Guide to ‘Down There’ Healthcare tackles all of your burning gynae-related questions, from periods to smear tests to PCOS – it’s the definition of essential reading.

Day-to-day life

endometriosis

As with any condition, it’s important to listen to your body and know when it’s telling you to take it easy. ‘I have become acutely aware of how the foods I choose to eat and my lifestyle affect my symptoms,’ Henrietta says.

‘I understand the importance of slowing down, taking time to restore and just “be” in everyday life, which has a profound affect. I now use my symptoms as gentle reminders signalling me to slow down and to rest and digest.’

Things may feel very overwhelming – especially at first – but there are a number of support groups, helplines and online forums you can visit to get more advice and emotional support. Head to endometriosis-uk.org (Anita’s go-to patient resource) for more information.

Note that the purpose of this feature is to inform, not replace one-to-one medical consultations. For advice tailored specifically to you, always discuss your health with a doctor.

Women who give birth to boys much more likely to have postnatal depression

A new study into postnatal depression (PND) found the odds of developing this condition increased by 79 percent when mothers had baby boys compared to baby girls. Overall the researchers identified that women who give birth to males are 71-79% more likely to develop PND. Furthermore, women whose births had complications were 174% more likely to experience PND compared to those women who had no complications.

Books coming out this week: Nine Perfect Strangers, The Woo-Woo, and more

Books coming out this week: Nine Perfect Strangers, The Woo-Woo, and more


Books coming out this week: <em>Nine Perfect Strangers</em>, <em>The Woo-Woo</em>, and more

I know this is a space where we talk about books, but I would be remiss not to talk about the election, too. When I say “the election,” you might get a sinking feeling in your gut thinking about November 8th, 2016. But I’m hopeful that soon, we’ll start associating the term with the midterm elections taking place tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6th. It will be one of the most important elections of our generation and has the potential to “flip the house”—a.k.a. vote in enough Democrats to hold the majority in the House of Representatives.

If you’re not registered to vote, you may still be able to do so. Over 15 states—including California, Illinois, and Minnesota—have same-day voter registration for last-minute voters. After you cast your ballot and take your “I voted” selfie (with your “I voted” sticker), dive into a new read from this list of books coming out this week. You earned it.

Here are six books coming out this week that you don’t want to miss:

1. The Woo-Woo: How I Survived Ice Hockey, Drug Raids, Demons, and My Crazy Chinese Family by Lindsay Wong, out November 6th

Arsenal Pulp Press
available at Amazon | $ 12.16

When Lindsay Wong was a young girl, her grandmother was terrified of Chinese ghosts called “the woo-woo.” After her aunt and mother started behaving strangely and blaming the woo-woo too, Lindsay herself began feeling the effects of the ghosts and wondered if she could escape. Don’t miss this darkly hilarious memoir about mental illness, survival, and growing up in a dysfunctional Asian family.

2. How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don’t by Lane Moore, out November 6th

Picture of How to Be Alone Books
Atria Books
available at Amazon | $ 11

Lane Moore’s collection of essays holds nothing back. With stories about growing up with toxic parents, never feeling love, and turning pain into art, it isn’t always easy to read. But you won’t be able to put it down. How to Be Alone will make you feel less alone. It deserves an extra special place on your bookshelf.

3. Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, out November 6th

Flatiron Books
available at Amazon | $ 18.61

This is it. It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies (ever heard of it?) is back with a new novel. This one’s about nine strangers at a health resort seeking 10 days of mindfulness, meditation, pampering, and some tough self-love. And it’s Moriarty’s most page-turning book yet.

4. An Unexplained Death: The True Story of a Body at the Belvedere by Mikita Brottman, out November 6th

Henry Holt and Co.
available at Amazon | $ 18.30

Calling all true crime junkies: If you binged Season 2 of Making a Murderer and never miss an episode of the My Favorite Murder podcast, you’re going to be downright obsessed with An Unexplained Death. It investigates the mysterious death of a man named Rey Rivera. The police ruled his death a suicide—but is that what really happened? Here, Mikita Brottman seeks the truth.

5. The New Order by Karen E. Bender, out November 6th

Counterpoint Press
available at Amazon | $ 17.10

I’ve come to love short stories in 2018, and The New Order is one of the best collections of the year. My favorite story? “Mrs. America,” a timely read about a candidate for local office and all the things threatening to upend her campaign.

6. Those Who Knew by Idra Novey, out November 6th

Viking
available at Amazon | $ 17.10

Speaking of timely reads, it’s extremely fitting that Those Who Knew hits shelves on Election Day. Set 10 years in the future after the collapse of the U.S. government, it’s a powerful novel about a male politician, his bad behavior, and the people who bring him down.

Happy reading!

Extra 40% off Bonobos Sale, East Dane Sale Picks, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

UPDATE: The calendar flips to November and everyone loses their friggin’ minds. LOTS of updates below in case you’re checking back in from early this morning. It’s one of the better handfuls in recent memory to be honest…

 

Bonobos: Extra 40% off Sale Items w/ GHOULS

Bonobos

The Bonobos sale section has been real picked over for a while now. So a fresh injection of some new stock, to said sale section, is welcome. And now it’s an extra 40% off, no need to lean on the lesser 20% off code (ECLIPSE20.) Use that GHOULS for an extra 40% off.

 

Target Black Friday Select Deals Preview (exp today, 11/1)

Expires today, so, hop to it. Okay, not exactly our wheelhouse, but big thanks to Brandon D. for the tip on this. Of which he said: “This one is actually pretty good. Especially this Instant Pot, normally $ 100, now $ 70 AND they give you a $ 10 Target gift card. I have the Lux version (the most basic – the Duo is better), and it’s fantastic for cooking for up to 4 people. And if you don’t know what to cook, use that gift card to buy this book!” And as an owner of a cordless Dyson stick vacuum, I can say those things will change your life. Especially if you have pets. Who cares if it’s fuschia. It’s $ 110 off. Also, those wireless beats just got a mention by the Blue Stones the other day. This one is more of a Dappered Space alert, but still. And don’t forget, everything is now getting fast and free two day shipping now, no sign up or membership required.

 

Spier & Mack: Italian Flannel Sportcoat Sale – $ 249 ($ 328)

Almost $ 80 off? That’s… a really nice price for an Italian flannel, half canvas sportcoat. Plus, you can add pants (not on sale) for $ 138 and make it a suit for $ 387. Available in navy, light gray, and medium gray.

 

Massdrop: Orient Bambinos – $ 109.99 – $ 124.99 FINAL

Orient Bambino

Plenty of different Bambino styles to pick from. Still final sale of course. Estimated ship date is December 3rd. Lots of style variations to pick from, some of which are an extra $ 10 – $ 15 at checkout. No small seconds this time which is kind of a bummer.

 

Massdrop: Glycine Combat Vintage Automatic Watch – $ 279.99 FINAL

Glycine Combat Vintage Automatic Watch

Swiss made, automatic movement, 100m water resistance, and timeless vintage military looks. Comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty. Crystal is a domed “hesalite,” which is probably an intentional choice being that these are vintage inspired. It’s plastic, but scratches can be buffed out. Like the crystals on the original Omega moon watches. Goes for $ 320 over at Jomashop, so, some savings, but these are final sale since it’s Massdrop doing the selling. Estimated ship date is November 26th.

 

BONUS  Suitsupply: Future Outlet Item? 

Suitsupply

Suitsupply just released a new line from their fancy pants “Jort” collection, and, well, I don’t know how many of these things they made, but, if there’s more than a handful, I can see these ending up in the outlet post holidays. I… I got nothin’ fellas.

 

BONUS II Banana Republic: 50% off F&F Sale

In case you missed it… but… pretty sure not many of you did. Still, one of the better sales that they run. Didn’t get a personalized code in your email? Text Family to 89532 and you should get one back from BR. But pretty sure you’re opting into their promotional texts at that point. If you’re a cardmember, use BRCARD for an extra 10% off at checkout. If your purchase is north of $ 100? Use BRSHIP for free 3-5 day shipping. Full picks can be found here.

 

BONUS III  East Dane: Up to 40% off Surprise Sale

East Dane

So while East Dane can be a great place to pick up Loakes or the odd Billy Reid Peacoat on sale, there’s also a lot of weird (and expensive) stuff over there. As evidenced by the picks above. Those were the least weird/expensive stuff that I could find.

$500 Billion: Study Finds Parents Spend More on Adult Children than Retirement

Recent study insights reveal a telling tale of the extent of a parent’s love — and maybe even negligence — when it comes to their adult children. According to research, retirement security has taken a backseat for parents who are putting their children’s financial well-being ahead of their own future financial security, and they’re halting their golden-year plans just to make sure their offspring are thriving.

According to the study, “The Financial Journey of Modern Parenting: Joy, Complexity and Sacrifice” which was conducted by Merrill Lynch in partnership with Age Wave, parents today spend $ 500 billion annually on their adult children — ages 18-34 — double the amount they contribute each year to their retirement accounts.

More than 2,500 American parents were surveyed for the study which marks the third in a multi-year research series from Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, a company that studies maturing consumers.

“In this new era of delayed financial independence of young people, financial planning is no longer a solo or coupled activity,” Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., CEO, and founder of Age Wave said in a news release. “It’s become an ongoing family project with longer and different social, housing and economic interdependencies than we’ve seen before.”

80% of parents say they would be willing to make a major financial sacrifice for adult children, including dipping into their savings or cutting back their lifestyles. 25% would take on debt or pull money from retirement accounts. The research also found 31% of early adults ages 18-34 live with their parents, but even if the child is out of the house, parents are chipping in on school costs, health insurance, rent, and car expenses. 59% expect to help pay for their children’s weddings, 26% expect to contribute to their children’s first homes, and one-third plan to contribute to their grandchildren’s college costs.

Despite the financial sacrifices, 93% of respondents said being a parent was the most rewarding aspect of their lives and 94% said raising their children — and the costs that come with doing so — has been worth “every penny.”

“When emotions and money become intertwined, parents risk making financial decisions that can compromise their — and their children’s — financial futures,” Lisa Margeson, head of retirement client experience and communications at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said in the release. “Parents can navigate this difficult balance by setting clear boundaries about their level of support, fostering financial independence in adult children, and reconciling spending on children with long-term savings goals to avoid jeopardizing their own financial security.”

Julia Roberts Talks Ageism In Hollywood And More!

The famous actress got candid about her own career in Hollywood as well as the expectations of the industry. Julia Roberts tackled topics such as ageism, equal pay, as well as her Amazon series during a new interview, reports HollywoodLife.

Homecoming is set to premiere in just a few days, and she made sure to share with her fans that the psychological thriller is ‘a great old-fashioned yarn set in this really modern conundrum of a morality play.’

She went on to reveal that ‘I heard the podcast and, months later, I got a call about getting together with Sam Esmail [from Mr. Robot]. We had a Facetime meeting, and I just fell under the spell of his unique, nerdy genius. He is a total treasure, and I loved every minute that we spent together creatively and socially.’

Despite having a very successful and long career in Hollywood, Roberts still realizes that discrimination based on age is very much a reality in the film industry.

‘I think that’s made-up bulls**t that at a certain age, the bell is going to ring and you are done, go on back home. It is silly, and I do not think anyone buys into that. I do not think I am special. I have always been fortunate that I’ve always found the work I’m looking for. I mean, 30 years is a long time, and I’m grateful and satisfied.’

The actress also talked about equal pay for women.

‘It’s an ongoing thing that we wish was more in the rearview. But every day… today I know the World Surfing League announced they would have equal pay for their female and male surfers. And Manchester United has a female team that started this year. I think there are places where people are making those efforts in the right direction. So if it is a little bit of time, then we have to take it and be happy for it,’ Roberts told the outlet.

The T Rex’s tiny baby arms might have been way more useful than they seem

t rex arms

Running into a Tyrannosaurus rex in the wild would have been a truly frightening thing for just about any animal that roamed the earth between 65 million and 80 million years ago, and for an obvious reason. The mighty meat-eater was huge in size and had a mouth built to turn bones into powder. If it snagged you with its jaws you were probably going to have a bad time, but nobody was afraid of its puny little arms… or were they?

As Live Science reports, a new study presented at a recent meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology took a close look at how T. rex’s arms would have functioned, and it makes some bold predictions.

$500 Billion: Study Finds Parents Spend More on Adult Children than Retirement

Recent study insights reveal a telling tale of the extent of a parent’s love — and maybe even negligence — when it comes to their adult children. According to research, retirement security has taken a backseat for parents who are putting their children’s financial well-being ahead of their own future financial security, and they’re halting their golden-year plans just to make sure their offspring are thriving.

According to the study, “The Financial Journey of Modern Parenting: Joy, Complexity and Sacrifice” which was conducted by Merrill Lynch in partnership with Age Wave, parents today spend $ 500 billion annually on their adult children — ages 18-34 — double the amount they contribute each year to their retirement accounts.

More than 2,500 American parents were surveyed for the study which marks the third in a multi-year research series from Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, a company that studies maturing consumers.

“In this new era of delayed financial independence of young people, financial planning is no longer a solo or coupled activity,” Ken Dychtwald, Ph.D., CEO, and founder of Age Wave said in a news release. “It’s become an ongoing family project with longer and different social, housing and economic interdependencies than we’ve seen before.”

80% of parents say they would be willing to make a major financial sacrifice for adult children, including dipping into their savings or cutting back their lifestyles. 25% would take on debt or pull money from retirement accounts. The research also found 31% of early adults ages 18-34 live with their parents, but even if the child is out of the house, parents are chipping in on school costs, health insurance, rent, and car expenses. 59% expect to help pay for their children’s weddings, 26% expect to contribute to their children’s first homes, and one-third plan to contribute to their grandchildren’s college costs.

Despite the financial sacrifices, 93% of respondents said being a parent was the most rewarding aspect of their lives and 94% said raising their children — and the costs that come with doing so — has been worth “every penny.”

“When emotions and money become intertwined, parents risk making financial decisions that can compromise their — and their children’s — financial futures,” Lisa Margeson, head of retirement client experience and communications at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said in the release. “Parents can navigate this difficult balance by setting clear boundaries about their level of support, fostering financial independence in adult children, and reconciling spending on children with long-term savings goals to avoid jeopardizing their own financial security.”

Aretha Franklin Tribute Brings Out Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Mary Mary and More at the 2018 American Music Awards [Video]

Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Donnie McClurkin, CeCe Winans and Mary Mary came together at the American Music Awards Tuesday to pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.

via Billboard:

Following a special video homage to the legendary Queen of Soul that focused on the artist’s long history as a host, performer and winner at the AMAs, Knight took the stage to perform Franklin’s drawn-out interpretation of “Amazing Grace.” Then, minister and gospel singer McClurkin relieved Knight to perform “Climb Higher Mountains,” which was used as the recessional song at her funeral. 

From there, gospel legend Winans delivered a rousing rendition of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” followed by R&B/jazz singer Ledisi belting an invigorating “How I Got Over.” Contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary closed things out with a backing ensemble-assisted “Old Landmark.” 

“What an amazing night!” was all host Tracie Ellis-Ross could say in review after.

This ex of Kate Middleton’s made Prince William more jealous than most

Yes, really.

Kate and William holding hands
REX

Kate Middleton and Prince William are one of the most talked about couples in the world, from their happy family life with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, to their relatable day to day habits at Kensington Palace – they’re just like us really!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem so happy in fact it’s hard to remember that there were ever rocky patches.

In 2007 however, Kate and Wills briefly broke up, with Kate even leaving the country to process the split, heading to Dublin with her mum and a group of friends to relax.

It has emerged however that also during their break up, Kate had a brief romance – and it is reported to have annoyed William more than most.

Why? Because it was with one of William’s Eton school friends, shipping heir Henry Ropner.

REX

It gets even more dramatic as Harper’s Bazaar Australia reported that William once dated Ropner’s ex back in the day.

Drama!

‘We were both very young,’ Prince William explained of the split in their 2010 engagement video interview. ‘It was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up.’

He continued: ‘It was just sort of a bit of space and a bit of things like that, and it worked out for the better.’

Kate certainly seemed to agree, explaining, ‘I think at the time I wasn’t very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person.’

More Men Are Wearing Stilettos—if They Can Find Their Size

Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

Shaobo Han put on his first pair of heels at age 11. The pair wasn’t Han’s, exactly—he’d stolen them from his mother, to practice “prancing around the house when no one was around.” Han thought that boys weren’t supposed to wear heels, so he made sure to play with them in private.

“I have other male-presenting friends who have the same memory of trying on their mother’s clothes,” Han told The Daily Beast. “It’s fascinating that a collective memory exists. Even though nobody taught us how to wear heels, we all tried on our own.”

Years later, Han went to Forever21 to buy his first real pair of heels for $ 40. “I was lucky that my shoe size is a men’s eight, which is a women’s 10,” said Han. “Other people aren’t as fortunate. If they have larger feet than mine, it’s almost impossible to find something that fits.”
