Alternatively, there are folks…

Edith Head – A Creator of Enduring Style

Has everyone seen today’s Google “doodle“?!?! It’s dedicated to (what would be) Edith Head’s 116th birthday! In case you are not aware of who this incredible lady is/was, she was an Academy Award-winning (EIGHT of them, out of 35 nominations!) costume designer.

Martha Stewart’s 2013 Halloween Magazine

For those of you equally obsessed with Halloween, you know the “special edition” Martha Stewart Halloween magazine is now on shelves! The past three or four years, this edition has been somewhat of a repeat, snoozefest, since much of the material had been used already and/or was available the website.
