A sneak peek of 9 beautifully designed homes by Hollywood architect Paul McClean. Pictured above is a home for Calvin Klein that features an entry bridge passing over a water courtyard below. Simple and stunning!

The Architecture of a Salad

Thought it was really interesting to hear thoughts on the evolution of salad style from the big bowl to the “platter salad” – a low slung arrangement across a plate. This way you pick and choose what to take, not to mention, it’s very Instagrammable!

World’s Best Vineyard

See the top 25 of the “World’s Best Vineyards” including the number one spot winner – Zuccardi Valle de Uco in Argentina’s Uco Valley, located about 40 miles south of Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes. Modern architecture, mountain views, and great wine – what more could you ask for?

The Business Behind Amazon

Amazon – everyone’s favorite retailer (or at least mine!). Amazon is so new, and so dramatic in its speed and scale and aggression, but many of the business practices it’s using are actually very old. More from the history of mass retail that inspired Amazon.

Healthy Foods to Avoid Eating

This list serves as a really good gut check to make sure you aren’t getting tricked. These 26 foods may present themselves as healthy, but may not be as nutritious as they seem!

Doing Nothing, Nowhere

Simplicity is the ultimate luxury as travelers search for new ways to unplug. People whose daily routines are consumed by digital demands and distractions are going to great lengths to do nothing in the middle of nowhere. Pictured, Sheldon Chalet in Denali National Park, which you get to by helicopter.

Rent a Stranger’s Swimming Pool

It’s called Swimply – and think of it as an Airbnb for pools. This new site lets you rent a stranger’s swimming pool by the hour. What will they think of next?!

Hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing rest of the weekend!
