This Skinny London Home Has Gorgeous Interiors, But It’s Only Six Feet Wide

While tiny homes have become popular over the years, skinny homes haven’t really caught on. You may recall this previously on-the-market skinny house in Chicago that went viral for its slender frame. Although it caught the attention of many (and did sell), it seemed the general consensus was that it was just too thin. But what if a home of a similar width was looking for a new owner and its interiors were absolutely gorgeous? Would you reconsider? Did I mention it’s in London?

It’s hard to find home decor collections that truly blow me away when it comes to patterns, colors and style. But Drew Barrymore’s Flower Home line never disappoints.

While the actress has been building up her empire with Flower Beauty and a daytime talk show aptly named “The Drew Barrymore Show,” her Flower Home collection at Walmart might be my favorite project from the star — despite one of her most-loved movies “50 First Dates,” of course.

Barrymore launched the first Flower Home collection back in March 2019, and her latest fall collection is some of her most beautifully designed products yet.

Cheslin Kolbe ruined England’s World Cup dreams and now he’s got Exeter Chiefs in his sights

That’s the problem with virtual interviews – you never quite know who is listening in.

Sixteen-and-a-half minutes into a chat with South African wing Cheslin Kolbe about Toulouse, Exeter and the European semi-final a box at the bottom of the screen interrupts us.

Kolbe’s agent is still on mute, her camera off as she is travelling on a train to Manchester while hosting the Google Meets call, but another person wants to muscle in.

Cheslin Kolbe celebrates after scoring against England in the Rugby World Cup final last year

Isaac Lugudde the name-tag says. He joined a while back, silently. What does he want?

But, wait. The face we now see beaming back at us is not him, another agency representative.

It’s Siya Kolisi.

The World Cup winning South African captain has just turned the camera on.

It turns out he has been eavesdropping. He is Kolbe’s biggest fan, shares

Remodelers Showcase will open doors to 43 homes

Most Minnesotans are spending a lot more time at home these days, getting well acquainted with its comforts — and its shortcomings.

If your home could use some improvements to function better or just feel more enjoyable, next weekend offers an opportunity to get ideas and inspiration by seeing how other Twin Cities homeowners have remodeled their dwellings.

The Fall Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase, Oct. 2-4, will open the doors to 43 recently remodeled homes around the Twin Cities.

In addition to perennially popular projects like kitchen and bath makeovers, the tour will showcase some projects of special interest during the pandemic, including home offices and spaces for outdoor socializing that help extend the season as the weather cools, such as porches, patios and a rustic industrial “man shed” with a commercial-style door (R16 in Hopkins by Great Northern Builders).

The pandemic is definitely having an impact on remodeling,

My Friend and Boss, Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an intimidating boss. Though small in stature and quiet in demeanor, she was a legendary lawyer and jurist who was fiercely devoted to her work. And she never lost sight of the principles—and the people—that made that work worth doing.

I served as a law clerk for Justice Ginsburg during the Supreme Court’s 2013 term. It was the privilege of a lifetime, yet something I will never feel that I quite deserved. In the days since she died, I’ve felt my mind drifting back to that time, the glimpses it gave me into her life, and how it shaped my own.

[Read: What Ruth Bader Ginsburg taught me about being a stay-at-home dad]

The justice was 50 years my senior. Even into her ninth decade, she demanded the world of herself, and expected no less from us. When

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Shaped Me As a Lawyer and Father

For as seriously as she took the work, the justice knew that family always came first. Immediately following my clerkship, I spent a period at home with my daughter, trying to make up for all those late nights at the Court. The justice was thrilled when she learned that I was planning to be a stay-at-home dad for a while. She believed fervently that her life’s work of furthering equality in the law could never be realized without equality at home as well.

When I contemplated writing publicly about my experiences, which I ended up doing for The Atlantic, she was my biggest supporter. The justice knew the power of example—that if you live your own life according to your principles, others will follow. Her example has given permission to millions of women and men—including myself—to break free from artificial

Why RuPaul’s music is the fuel that keeps ‘Drag Race’ running

Midway through every episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul materializes on the runway, serving a lewk that is sickening, as a quartet of fabulous judges claps.

This moment—the transition into the most competitive portion of the reality competition show—has been soundtracked by the same song for 12 years. By now, they are inseparable.

“Cover girl, put the bass in your walk,” the song insists, an audio cue for any viewer whose attention has strayed, to hurry back to the TV, post-haste.

When this song blares in the countless bars that host Drag Race watch parties—or that did pre-COVID-19, anyway—it provokes a Pavlovian response in anyone stuck in the bathroom: finish up and get out. Because the song is actually performed by RuPaul, though, perhaps he’s also singing it to himself on the runway, as much a reminder to slay as it is a flex.

“Cover Girl” is just one
