The Surprisingly Cheap Solution To My Tiny-Space Book Storage Woes — Amazon Deal of the Day

Ever since I moved into my first tiny dorm room at 18, I’ve been juggling two problems: too many books, and not enough room to store them. In my current bedroom, I was able to keep the storage crisis at bay through frequent KonMari purges, but eventually my bookworm ways caught up to me. I found myself out of storage space, with books piling up on my floors. I finally turned to a long-dormant solution I had first used back in college: invisible book shelves.

This Super-Common Real Estate Tip is Actually Terrible Advice

We’ve all heard it. If you’re looking to buy, you should always go for the worst house in the best neighborhood. But have many of us ever stopped to question that conventional wisdom? I thought I was bucking convention when I bought one of the lowest priced houses in a neighborhood that many locals steer clear of (and to my eternal frustration that Uber drivers tell my Airbnb guests they should avoid) — but is it true?

A Shaker-Inspired, Hand-Built Vermont Farmhouse — House Tour

Name: Sarah Priestap-Porter and Jeffrey Porter. Our land-mates are Arlo (rescue mutt) and Glaumur (Icelandic Horse)
Location: Tunbridge, Vermont (Central Vermont, for y’all who have no idea where this is)
Size: 1620 square feet
Years Lived In: 1 year, owned

When I started dating Jeff back in 2009, one of the first things he told me was how his dream was to build a house for his family some day. It was college, and the time when everyone talked about big dreams, so I never took it seriously. After all, he was a photography major with a little woodworking experience at the time, not some experienced builder. It wasn’t until 2011 when we moved to Vermont and he began to apprentice with a timber-framer that I realized how real his dream may be.

The Bold & Beautiful Beverly Hills Home of the Founders of Too Faced Cosmetics — House Tour

Name: Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson, the co-founders of Too Faced Cosmetics, and their chihuahua, Clover
Location: Beverly Hills
Size: 2,121 square feet
Years Lived In: 2.5 years, owned

Too Faced Cosmetics—the cruelty-free global beauty and cosmetics brand started in 1998 and sold in over 30 countries—is known for its ability to not take makeup too seriously. Their “Better Than Sex” mascara is iconic with a cult-like following. They’re responsible for the world’s first glitter eye shadow. And frankly I appreciate any company that so freely uses puns in its product names (looking at you, “Chocolate Brow-nie“). And the Beverly Hills home shared by the company’s married co-founders Jeremy Johnson (CEO/Action Man) and Jerrod Blandino (Chief Creative Officer/Dreamer) is as similarly rebellious, tongue-in-cheek and colorful as the company they helm.

Dead Battery? How to Jump Start a Car Like a Pro

You run out of the house already late for work, hop in the car and turn the key in the ignition … only to hear a “click click” noise instead of the comforting hum of the engine. Obviously something’s not right. Is it the battery (easy fix), the alternator (more complicated), or both? Whatever it is, it’s not the end of the world. Take a deep breath, because you got this.
