obsessed with succz right now.
It's no secret that we're into succulents. They're easy to take care of, cheap, easily propagate, don't need much water and come in tons of beautiful colors and textures. Below find our favorite suc...

Imagine walking into your hotel room and experiencing this! Artist Tilt has created Panic Room inside the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. The unique hotel has five rooms which are redone annually by a different artist. In essence, they invite artists, graphic designers and painters into their rooms to create amazing and distinct atmospheres.

Though there isn't much information about this particular room yet, the photos, taken just last month by designer and photographer Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin), speak for themselves. While one side of the room is decorated in stark white, the other has Tilt's colorful graffiti spray painted all over, including the walls, the floor, and even the bed!

Talk about messing with your mind...

wish my arms looked like that!
I love this woman. Always have. Ever since I understood what the Olympics meant. Like a singer who listened to Whitney Houston's National Anthem over and over again to psych them up for a ......

What a depressing excuse for a hotel. This Day's Inn is a disgrace and should be demolished. I booked two rooms, one for my husband and myself and one for my parents. I was deeply embarrassed of my hotel selection. Our "non-smoking room" reeked of smoke and I was afraid we'd get cancer from sleeping in the room overnight. There were cigarette holes all over the two comforters and they went through to the sheets. The water tasted funky. I stay in a lot of budget hotels, and don't expect the Ritz, but I expect cleanliness at the very least. Do NOT stay here. You would be better off sleeping in your car in the parking lot.

I was spending Thanksgiving week in Sag Harbor, having driven up to NY from South Carolina over the course of two days with my 5yo bulldog rescue. She behaved really strangely one night and when we got to grandma's house she peed blood in the living room. We all panicked, called an urgent care facility, only to discover they were an hour away. They then thank heavens directed us to this vet. They were lifesavers! They were open on Sundays (BONUS!) and told us to come at our earliest convenience. Luckily we discovered Agnes only had an infection and they gave us the pills and we were on our way. Dr. Turetsky was so sweet and friendly and took care of us like we were his regular clients. We are all so grateful they were able to take care of us over the holiday weekend or it would have been a very stressful time for everyone. Thank you again!

Going to a hair removal place is as exciting as going to the dentist. I can barely sleep the night before because I'm nervous about whether my body will be able to withstand the pain. From the moment I walked in the door for an initial consultation, SCMS made me feel relaxed and totally at ease with the whole process. Their staff is always really friendly and they go out of their way to make the experience as pleasant as it can be. I've been four times and am always greeted with smiles and cheer. They are extremely helpful with any questions/concerns you may have, and the women doing the actual laser removal are experts, usually they have masters in some field of science or medicine. I always leave very impressed with the quality and professionalism of the team and how seriously they take their jobs. Thank you South Coast Medspa, I can't recommend you enough!

If 10 stars was an option I'd give SCM 10 stars. WOW!! I've moved at least 20 times in my life and I can't think of a more enjoyable moving experience. These guys worked with a smile and they were lightning fast. I mean, WHAM! BAM! and stuff was out of our 10x20 packed storage unit and in the truck (we recently relocated from Los Angeles, but left stuff in storage until we purchased our home). Our team consisted of Dwight, David and Giovanni and they were so much fun. I seriously could have kept them at the house all day they were such a pleasure to be around. I cannot recommend these guys enough. The last movers we had were horrendous and I was so terrified of having a repeat of that awful experience, but SCM totally changed my whole attitude of what a move can/should be. We cannot thank them enough and hope you stop looking any further and book this company! Thanks again guys!!!
