$2500 Is Your New Emergency Savings Goal

$2500 Is Your New Emergency Savings Goal

If saving up three to six months of expenses in an emergency fund feels like advice that’s wise but nearly impossible to achieve, there’s growing evidence that you don’t need quite that much money stashed away to cushion you from financial emergencies. $2500 may be enough to get you started.

The latest is a study by Jorge Sabat and Emily A. Gallagher, featured recently by CNBC Make It. They...

Let Michelle Obama’s #SelfCareSunday Be the Motivation You Need This Monday

Let Michelle Obama’s #SelfCareSunday Be the Motivation You Need This Monday

I don’t know about you, but my Mondays hit me hard. I don’t know if it’s the 6:30 a.m. start time (CST) or the result of my body clock being thrown off by sleeping most of the preceding weekend, but 9 times out of 10, I feel like I’m pushing a boulder uphill through the fog, struggle-blogging and editing my way to Tuesday (okay, Wednesday—when I get over the hump).

In short, #MondayMotivation...

The FTC Has Confirmed That Sunday Riley Faked Product Reviews

Sunday Riley, the maker of the cult—and extremely pricey—skincare product Good Genes, has been found by the Federal Trade Commission to have misled its customers “by posting fake reviews of the company’s products on a major retailer’s website, at the CEO’s direction, and by failing to disclose that the reviewers were company employees.”

According to the FTC, the company’s managers and even...

Norev 1/18 Toyota GR Supra Roadster (G29)

Norev 1/18 Toyota GR Supra Roadster (G29)

As promised, I bought the Norev 1/18 BMW Z4 M40i (G29) and have taken plenty of pictures.

Norev seems to be on a roll this year compared to everyone else. Although AutoArt and Minichamps have been producing excellent models, it seems like Norev has been consistently launching the newest and greatest from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and even Audi. Starting with the F90 and G15, they’ve also undertaken...

A Citroën, unexpectedly

A Citroën, unexpectedly

This one. An AX, common once but I haven’t seen one in ages.

Let’s do a little unpacking.

It’s lhd, so foreign.

No plates

French. How can we tell without plates? Because it’s got an A for apprenti in the back window. It’s the French for an L plate.

Driver’s door forced open, air of dereliction. Abandoned then. Some French person came to live here with their old AX, it gave trouble, has absolutely...

Fleurotica: Inspiration—and Education—Bloom in Chicago With a Floral-Fueled Fashion Show

Anyone who thinks the most imaginative looks on the runway happen during Fashion Week has clearly never been to Fleurotica, the incredible merging of floral and fashion design that took place at Chicago’s Garfield Park Observatory on Friday night. Garnering my first invitation to the 11-year-old event this year, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I entered the conservatory’s glorious,...

Ryan Murphy almost had a Watchmen cameo as Ryan Murphy, creator of American Hero Story

One of the cleverest ways that Damon Lindelof situates his elaboration of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen in the here and now is with American Hero Story, a show-within-the-show that unspools the Minutemen era of the world’s superhero culture in the style of Ryan Murphy, the mind behind FX anthologies American Horror Story and American Crime Story. Lindelof chatted about the choice in

These Photos From A Muddy 49ers-Skins Game Are So Good

San Francisco’s win in Washington may not have been good football, but it was beautiful in its way.

At a rainy, sloppy Landover, the Niners slip-slid their way to a 9-0 win that was a wholesomely good time—for the winners, anyway. “It takes you back to being a kid: You’re out there, you’re sloshing around and your shoes are full of water and mud,” Richard Sherman said. “It’s still a kid’s game...

Nicki Minaj explains last month's retirement tweet: “It was really about my fifth album”

Nicki Minaj explains last month's retirement tweet: “It was really about my fifth album”

The word “retirement” has never really held the same weight in the music industry as it does with the rest of the world. If an artist claims to be stepping out of the spotlight, that can mean anything from multiple farewell tours to an extended break; rarely does it mean they are leaving the gig forever. When Nicki Minaj tweeted back in September that she would be retiring in order to start...

Dear God, It's Me, Panama (Again). I See Rain in the Forecast for Spelhouse Homecoming This Weekend (Again). Let's Talk (Again)

Dear God,

What’s up, Big Homie—is it okay if I refer to you as such? I have no idea if the pronouns conversation has made it into religion yet, though I’m pretty sure it’s coming. I think for simplicity’s sake, I’ll stick with convention and you can correct me in the comments.

Again, what up, Big Homie? SpelHouse Homecoming 2019—that beautiful, unificatious homecoming weekend for both Spelman...

El Huawei Watch GT2 es un reloj deportivo que te enamorará si puedes vivir con su gran fallo de software

¿Qué es realmente un smartwatch? Llevo haciéndome esa pregunta desde hace un mes. ¿Es el Huawei Watch GT 2 un reloj inteligente? Tengo mis dudas. Lo que tengo claro es que este nuevo “smartwartch” tiene dos características que me hacen querer llevarlo a diario. Algo que el Apple Watch nunca consiguió.

Pero comencemos por el principio. El Huawei Watch GT2 es el último modelo de Huawei en...

Too bad so many of these fell victim to terrible, tacky mods and neglect. They may not have been a competitive luxury sports sedan, but damn they were badass.

You Can Now Use Google Maps to Find Out Where Cops Are Hiding and Police Don’t Like It One Bit

Law enforcement is “concerned” that citizens may try to abide by the law after the team at Google Maps announced the rollout of a new feature that will allow customers to avoid tickets, arrests, or being shot in the face by tracking the real-time location of police officers.

For years, Waze—a GPS-based traffic and navigation app owned by Google—allowed its users to report the location of speed...

Just how good a deal Apple Arcade ends up depending on the games. We’ve heard a lot about the captivating Day-Glo endless runner game Sayonara...

Huey Lewis sips White Claw, talks Sports and American Psycho in sprawling Ezra Koenig interview

Today, it’s hip to be a person who listens to Time Crisis With Ezra Koenig, the Vampire Weekend frontman’s internet radio show (available on Apple Music). That’s because this weekend’s episode of the show included an hour-long chat with Huey Lewis, th-th-th-th-th-th-the heart of Huey Lewis And The News. A lot of it is surprising, making for an interview that’s a lot of fun—almost as fun as “I...
