You’ve just spent all day doing barre workouts and posting photos of your favorite luxury bee pollen on your Instagram account. Now, you just want to lounge on your couch made of naturally breathable, sweat-wicking Luxtreme™ fabric.

The interior of a Cheesecake Factory looks a lot like the dishes and cakes they serve: enormous and over-the-top, filled with different, rich textures and colors. There might be what looks like a Rococo painting on the ceiling, but then the columns that flank our table seem straight from ancient Egypt. And the…
Ever find yourself watching a home renovation show and thinking, “Damn, wonder where I could get those chevron-striped pillows?” (Marshalls. The answer is always Marshalls.) Struggle no more!

Quoth the jeans-meister, "There was never any question for me... Because how could you ever find another room like this?" Well, fair enough then. Who doesn't want to be 16 forever?
Of the many, many differences between men and women, the bedroom is one place where there are definite contrasts. I'm not talking about sex; I'm talking about the actual décor of the boudoir. From sheets to artwork, it seems that men are so much more likely to make horrifying choices. And if you check out these…
Has the economy got you down? Thank God for editors of Daily Candy Dallas, who are always looking out for those passionately pinching pennies.
