Looking through my magazine collection I came across Lindsay Lohan on the cover of Elle back in July 2005. Sure, she was a bit emaciated, but her hair was shiny, red and gorgeous, and her skin was clean porcelain and beautiful.
That was then, this is now.
No, these are not illicit shots from a new drug/sex scandal. It is a scummy new "editorial" Lindsay shot for Muse Magazine. If you'd like to see Lindsay smoke a pack of cigarettes in a motel room in a little video titled "LINDSAY'S PRIVATE PARTY" (a film of the Muse magazine shoot) then click below.
This collection reminded me of the editorial I love so dearly. The cargos & baseball caps worn dressed up with heels.

Christmas decorations don't have to be red, green, or involve tinsel. That was the mindset for this group of design students when they designed the annual Christmas party for the Royal Danish Embassy at the Ambassador's house. The theme was Hans Christian Andersen's "Snow Queen" in the context of the Copenhagen Conference currently being held. The design reflected climate change and all of the materials were recycled, reused, recyclable, or reusable.
The snowstorm that moved throughout the house was created using coffee filters, old newspapers, and paper out of recycling bins. I like their new spin on Christmas lights, grouping snowball lights on the ground and LED lights in jars hanging in the trees.
I love the candles in jars on the tree stumps, and the best part is these fantastic ideas can be used all year round!
