Paris Hilton Got Her Hair Braided, So She Must Be at Burning Man: The Best Instagrams to Emerge So Far

The annual Burning Man festival, which sees the construction of a small tent-opolis in Nevada's Black Rock Desert each year, got underway Sunday, bringing out devotees of the bacchanal—self-described "Burners"—clad in the usual Barbie-meets-Mad Max fantasy looks. (After all, the festival even offers a custom tailoring table for any inevitable wardrobe malfunctions.) For the uninitiated, the festival, which was founded in 1986, has garnered a reputation as a hedonistic spectacle for prominent Hollywood and Silicon Valley figures, a weeklong spirit quest of sorts during which participants make "theme camps" in the temporary Black Rock City. (This year's themes include such heady titles as ")*(Aloha = H'Aloha," "404: Village Not Found," and ""#Octothorpe.") It has earned so much cult appeal that its attendees...

You Can Visit The Real-Life King’s Landing, But Locals Don’t Want You To

gettyimages-169340004-1504026710

Now that there’s probably more than a year until the next (and final) season of Game of Thrones comes out, you have time to check out some of the real-life locations for yourself. But if you want to visit the real-life King’s Landing, be wary, because every other Game of Thrones fan has had the same idea. Insane overcrowding has led the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, to crack down on the number of tourists who can visit the area Cersei Lannister calls home.

According to the Telegraph, Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković is set to cap the number of people who can visit each day at just 4,000, which is half of UNESCO's recommendation. That’s because the pedestrian-only medieval section gets overcrowded with visitors.

Aka the Korean beauty holy mecca

Peach & Lily’s founder Alicia Yoon takes us on a beauty tour of Seoul, Korea. Join her as she shops for products and participates in the best self-care that the city has to offer. A visit to Korea wouldn’t be complete without a proper beauty tour; after all, it’s considered to be one of the most exciting beauty meccas in the world, where you’ll find everything from high-tech skin bars, where you can pop into to for a lunchtime treatment, to stores filled with masks for every part of your body. To help guide you, I gathered up a thorough list of my favorite places to shop for K-beauty products and spas to visit. Just,...

The Politics of a Woman’s Body Hair in the Workplace

GETTYSTOCKBYTE

How much better at my job would I be if I didn't have to add "figuring out what to do about my body hair" to the list of things required for me to do it?

The night before what was indisputably going to be the biggest day of my professional career, I should have been up late prepping interview questions, packing extra batteries for my recorder, or even catching a few extra hours of sleep. Instead, I was staring at the thick, black hair on my legs in frustration.

As a freelancer who mostly works from home, I don't often have to worry about the tendrils of hair that grow, visibly, down my legs. But I was going to be reporting...

5 Travel Destinations For Pastel Lovers

Less about the hotel and more about the hue.

When you’re trying to decide where to take your summer holidays, there are a number of factors that can quickly turn the idea of a last minute long weekend getaway in to a mammoth 13-hour flight across the Atlantic, in search of a destination that’s obscure enough for you to actually Geotag. Your final decision could be based on finding somewhere with that elusive combination of hedonism and culture (yes, even Ibiza has a contemporary art museum) or you could be on the hunt for somewhere that’s so overwhelmingly aesthetically pleasing that you’ll risk your entire data roaming allowance to get that ‘gram. And now with Pantone’s bubble gum shade of ‘pale dogwood’...

How Lilly Pulitzer Turned A Mental Breakdown Into A Fashion Ampire

Lily Pulitzer

Palm Beach's "Queen of Prep" launched her namesake brand in the confines of a psychiatric hospital. That was just the beginning. 

If you happened to find yourself strolling along Palm Beach's tony Worth Avenue on a warm day in the mid-1950s, it wouldn’t be unusual to encounter a small rhesus monkey. The monkey (Goony, as he was known) would likely be perched on the shoulder of a young, barefoot woman named Lillian McKim Pulitzer, who—despite what her dirty toes and unkempt hair might imply—was a local Palm Beach socialite with a privileged pedigree. For many people, the name Lilly Pulitzer conjures up images of an affluent, prim-and-proper woman on her way to the beach; not a free-spirited bohemian who loved martinis,...

Pitch Perfect 3 Won’t Be The End Of The Barden Bellas, According To Anna Kendrick

Instagram+pitchperfectmovie+Universal Pictures

Aca-awesome.

Pitch Perfect 3 might not be the end of the Barden Bellas, according to star Anna Kendrick.
Back in April, screenwriter Kay Cannon revealed that the upcoming threequel will be the "end of the Bellas as we know them" and that if there was a fourth movie, it would focus on a "new crop."
However, that doesn't sound like the case for Kendrick when EW asked her if there is going to be another encore for the Bellas: "Hell, yeah! We'd do them forever."

Anna believes bringing new blood onto Pitch Perfect 3 in the form of director Trish Sie helped keep series fresh. "She has such positive energy. She's this kind of crazy, lioness woman – a real force of nature," said Anna. And it sounds like Trish is...

What A Healthy Period Really Looks Like

No cramping, no clotting, no spotting, no acne and no mood swings.

If I could compare my period to something, it would be as dry the Sahara Desert. I was 18 years old and in agony when my gynecologist handed me a packet of birth control pills to address my insane cramping, heavy bleeding and acne. “I have horrible cramps,” I told the nurse who chuckled and said, “Haven’t we all,” before handing me a packet of Advil. I was told too many times that cramping was a part of being a woman and to accept the painful side effects. So I was given synthetic hormones to mask the symptoms—rather than addressing the route of my hormonal problems—and after being on...
