In literature, in outfits and in life, it's the details that truly matter. A bathroom that's been decluttered, scrubbed and sanitized can still look a little bit off if you're not minding your lines. For a sparkling clean bathroom—top to bottom and wall to wall—you'll want to make sure your grout is really clean, too. READ MORE »

Between moving to a new country, getting my first real job, changing careers, moving apartments, and dealing with a host of other Life Stuff, I've learned a lot about financial health in the past decade. To anyone just starting on this journey of adulthood, here's the financial advice I wish I'd had—or followed—way back when. READ MORE »

(Image credit: Sweeten ) The 'before' kitchen in this Upper West Side two-bedroom wasn't in terrible condition, but it was plagued by a few issues common to small kitchens — teeny tiny appliances, and a serious lack of cabinet and counter space.
