If you're curious about the slick-looking wheel popping up on the Pinterest boards of your yoga friends (saves for this fitness prop were up 72 percent according to this year's Pinterest 100 ), welcome: you've discovered the world of the yoga wheel. Not to be confused with our friend and torture device the As Seen On TV ab wheel, the yoga wheel is exactly what it sounds like: a 12-inch (give or take) simple circle, maybe plastic, maybe cork or other natural material, to use in yoga practice.

If you're like me, you have two minds about the holidays. On one hand, it means a month of parties, mulled wine, and deeply unhealthy finger food (which you then try to counteract by grabbing something off the crudité plate). On the other hand, it's full of the stress of trying to prove your love to people via rampant gift giving. Some people are relatively easy to buy for, while others are more difficult and require way more thought than expected. If you're stuck on what to get some of the more esoteric people in your life, then please look to the below gift guide (that you definitely never asked for): The 2017 Etsy Gift Guide for the Incredibly Specific People In Your Life.

I can still remember the Kindergarten tradition of making homemade menorahs at my Jewish day school like it was yesterday. Take a sawed-off 2x4, glue 10 small square tiles atop it, in a line (two at the center for the tallest candle), then place 9 screw nuts in a row, one on top of each tile. I'm pretty sure my parents even still have mine — somewhere. READ MORE »

She didn't know anyone and wasn't working, so she started making things: "I was dying of boredom, I had to do something...I was making artwork and upholstering furniture pieces. I had some friends in the silk business, and I got silk samples from them, and started making pillows and curtains. One thing led to another, and then I opened my shop." READ MORE »
