Love is a strange thing. Everyone can come up with at least a brief list of things they find attractive in a mate, but sometimes we find ourselves drawn to people for totally unexplainable reasons.

Master and Dynamic Partners With Johnny Dowell

Johnny “King Nerd” Dowell has teamed with Master and Dynamic.
The London-based artist, who graduated from Central Saint Martins, has hand-engraved 10 MH40 Over-Ear headphones.
Dowell, who spent 15 years engraving at James Purdey and Sons, a British gunmaker, is known for working with some leading watch brands but had more room to play with this partnership.
“The sleek and modern designs of Master and Dynamic headphones combined with the premium quality and materials have always stood out to me as a product with engraving potential and here we are,” said Dowell. “For this particular project I was inspired by a traditional scrolling style, which starts with a nice curve and features ornate details that flow back and forth between the patterns, juxtaposing classic techniques with contemporary product.”
The headphones, which retail for $ 999, are available to purchase now. Master and Dynamic has previously worked with filmmaker Sam Kolder and architect David Adjaye.

Helping People, and the Planet: Nordstrom Partners with Operation Warm

MORE THAN A COAT: This year, Nordstrom employees join a list of other retail partners, such as Abercrombie & Fitch Co., Hollister Co. and TJX Cos. Inc. in volunteering their time in partnership with Operation Warm to provide coats to children in need — and also help the planet.
Marking 20 years in helping the unfortunate, Operation Warm is on track to achieve three million coats distributed with the aid of corporate partnerships and the corporate employee volunteer program, which is in its third year. Other avenues of assistance come directly through community groups, firefighters and schools for where the help is most needed.
Through its inaugural partnership with Nordstrom, “the green guardian” coat gives back. Each coat is designed and manufactured by Operation Warm and made out of 32 recycled plastic bottles.
Mutually excited in their partnership, Nordstrom and Operation Warm believe the mission is in line with company core values as well as demonstrated need.
As the holidays warrant a pleasure in giving, “This holiday season, Nordstrom is excited to be partnering with Operation Warm to outfit 1,500 children in New York City with new winter coats,” said Chris Wanlass, vice president and general manager of Nordstrom Manhattan.

Why your number of romantic partners mirrors your mother

A new national study shows that people whose mothers had more partners — married or cohabiting — often follow the same path. Results suggest that mothers may pass on personality traits and relationship skills that make their children more or less likely to form stable relationships.

Are You The Breadwinner? Have You Seen Issues When Women Out Earn Their Partners?

When women out earn their partnerWomen breadwinners are more common than ever, and there have been several recent(ish) articles and studies about the issues that crop up when women outearn their male partners. So let’s discuss, ladies — are YOU the breadwinner in your relationship? What issues have you noticed when you out earn your male partner? (For those of you in same-sex relationships, have you noticed conflict or just general noise over who earns more, maybe where chores or parenting duties are concerned?) We haven’t talked about breadwinners in a few years, so let’s discuss!

To jump-start our discussion, here’s an overview of those recent articles and studies about the issues that come up when women out earn their male partners:

  • A 2018 study by the U.S. Census Bureau reported that women who out-earn their male partners are likely to downplay their salaries, or their male partners are over-reporting their own incomes, or both. The paper about the study described this as “manning up and womaning down.”
  • The New York Times recently reported on this study: “Women are now much more likely to have an education and a career. Yet across most marriages, they still do much more child care and housework than their husbands, and men still feel strong pressure to be the family breadwinner. Today, women earn more than men in almost a quarter of couples, according to the new study and previous research, up from 18 percent in the 1980s. Yet 71 percent of people say that to be a good husband, men should be able to financially support a family, a Pew Research Center survey found last year. Only one-third said that about women.”
  • Reporting on the same study, Slate added: “This study echoes others that show women earning more has far-reaching societal costs. In 2013, researchers at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, also using census data, found that marriage rates decline when a woman has the potential to out-earn her husband. When a woman makes more than her husband, the likelihood of divorce increases by 50 percent.

The rise in woman breadwinners is partly because we are are more likely than men to extend our education into graduate school and beyond in many subject areas, including more women than ever enrolling in law school — and a higher level of education often means a higher salary. However, whether women with the same education and experience make the same as their male counterparts is a different matter. Also, since the early 1980s, women have had a lower unemployment rate than men, so even if the husband is capable and qualified to earn more, the jobs might not be there, or they might pay less than before.

To readers in relationships: Are you the breadwinner, or does your partner earn more? Either way, has it affected how you relate to each other? Have you ever felt the need to bend the truth about your salary, whether to a potential date or even friends and family members who may think your partner is earning more than you? Or would you proudly say you earned your high salary, and too bad if anyone doesn’t like it? With regard to chores — is there any link in your relationship to who does more chores and who earns more money? 

Psst: in the past we shared an excerpt from the book When She Makes More, as well as offered advice for dating a guy who makes significantly less money, as well as talked about different married money management strategies.

When women out earn their partners or husbands, YES, there can be relationship issues and power struggles, even in 2018. We took a look at some fun studies (including one called "manning up and womaning down") and asked the readers if THEY'RE the breadwinners in their relationship -- and if so, how their earning power has affected their marriage or partnership...

Talbots Partners With the ‘Christmas Spectacular’ Starring the Radio City Rockettes

HOLIDAY CHEER: In one of the more unexpected branding coups, Talbots has partnered with the “Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes,” and will be the official women’s fashion and footwear partner.
In addition to being a sponsor with presenting sponsor Chase, the Massachusetts-based chain of boutiques will have a replica storefront in the department store scene during this year’s “Christmas Spectacular” production at Radio City Music Hall. That scenario centers on two brothers who are on the hunt for the ideal Christmas gift for their sister and they wind up on a wintry adventure to discover the magic behind Santa Claus.
