Here are seven brands I learned about and fell in love with while I was there.

An Ode To Our Favorite Opposites-Attract Style Move

image

It's Look Like A Fashion Person 101: Wear a pair of single-soled pumps with a pair of well-loved jeans, and you're set. It almost doesn't matter what you have on top; with a ratty T-shirt or a couture blouse, the combination of jeans and pumps gives your outfit a "on my way to a fashion show" verve.

And, while there are lots of ways to mix and match jeans with heels, there are a few rules to follow, too. The following six people have mastered the balance. Click through to soak in their secrets — and then give the style trick a spin for yourself.

Sweden Just Became The World’s First Country To Be Listed On Airbnb

sweden-airbnb
Why bother listing a venue on Airbnb when you can list your entire country. This is what Sweden has done in a bid to promote tourism, and it looks like it might just work. Visit Sweden has partnered with Airbnb to offer its stunning landscapes and nature as accessible to everyone, completely free of charge. In Sweden there is a constitutional right called allemansrätten, meaning ‘the freedom to roam’. This allows anyone to explore the best Sweden has to offer - lakes, mountaintops, forests, meadows (with private gardens and lands under cultivation being the only exception) – at no cost, and encourages visitors to hike, run, camp and cycle on the land and explore as they please. ‘In Sweden we have everything...

Stop Everything Because Champagne 6-Packs Exist

fb0803-1495491034

Summer just got approximately 2348230948234 times better, because now you can bring not only a six-pack of rosé or beer to the beach, but a six-pack of Champagne.
Created by Moët & Chandon, who recently introduced the Champagne vending machine, the Moët Mini Share Pack comes with six 187-milliliter bottles of Moët’s classic Imperial Brut.

Though adorable and convenient, the pack, which is available nationwide, costs $100. If you're committed to drinking mini bottles of Champagne regardless, the pack also comes with golden flute toppers so you can be classy as hell wherever you sip.

This Bra Company Wants To Make Underwire A Thing Of The Past

image (3)
"It would be a shame for you to leave with the idea that this is a strapless bra," Bree McKeen told Refinery29 at a preview event for the Everyday Bustier, the inaugural and hallmark item of the brand she founded, Evelyn & Bobbie. After all, this particular lingerie silhouette has a pretty bad reputation with anyone who's unsuccessfully tried to keep one on for the duration of a workday (or even just a couple-hours-long event). The Everyday Bustier has already distinguished itself: not just any strapless bra can meet and wildly exceed its fundraising goal on Kickstarter within a few days, with backers willing to shell out almost $100 for undergarments. "When people hear ‘strapless bra,’ they think special occasion,...

Spinner Mani In Honor of Her 3 Autistic Sons

natasha-lee-1495655281

When mom of three, Natasha Lee, a thirtysomething award-winning nail artist from Wales, United Kingdom, created fidget spinner nail art, she had no idea it'd go viral.
"I have three sons who are all autistic, so when I saw these through a special needs group, I bought my two oldest children — a 19- and 9-year old — each a fidget spinner, and then one for my youngest, who's 4, and likes to have his hands kept busy," Lee told Cosmopolitan.com. "And then they became really popular a few weeks later."

To bring back one of its retro sneakers, Nike tapped Bella Hadid to star in a new campaign (because who better to make something instantly cool again?).
The Nike Cortez sneaker, which you've definitely seen countless times everywhere from the big screen to the Olympics, rings in its 45th anniversary this year. In honor of the special occasion, Hadid stars in the ads for the classic red, white and blue shoe which dates back to 1972.

Though it doesn't take much for the fashion set to go crazy over a pair of throwback kicks, seeing the It model-of-the-moment wear them (while skateboarding, nonetheless) is enough to make us all add them to our shopping carts immediately.

How to Flawlessly Grill Fish Without Losing It

Grilling-Fish-Infographic-2
We’d all agree that patio grillin’ in the heat of the summer is where it’s at. But there’s *nothing* worse than being pumped about grilling a delicious salmon, and then watching it fall through the grate into a fiery pit of doom. (Nooooooo!) This summer, things are gonna be different. We’ve got eight valuable tips and tricks that will ensure your fish grilling skills are off the hook. 1. Heat the grill and grease it up. To keep delicate fish from sticking, season the grates, much like you would a cast-iron skillet. While your grill gets all hot and toasty, lightly dip a crumpled paper towel in oil. Grab the paper towel clump with tongs and glide it along the grate until it’s black and glossy, re-dipping the towels as...
