LUXURY CARS | by: JUSTLUXE TEAM

Buying a luxury car is cool, sure, but countless others will have that same car sitting in their garage too — not too special. Instead of getting one from the dealership, check out the cool customization job Onyx Concept did on their Range Rover Sport San Marino. With new front and rear bumpers, carbon-fiber rear and front diffusers, aero side sills, custom exhaust tips, and extra spoilers (among much more), this SUV is pretty much a whole new beast.

Rhythm 1.1 Preamplifier Brings the Concert to Your Living Room

Backert Labs ,Rhythm 1.1 ,preamplifier
TECH | by: JUSTLUXE TEAM

Anyone truly serious about getting the highest quality sound possible from their home entertainment system knows that they should find a really good preamplifier, specifically one that actually takes rhythm into account. Backert Labs recently released their tubed preamp Rhythm 1.1, designed to give you dynamic rhythmic sound and get you as close to a live concert as possible. With the "first-and-only power supply that can utilize the finest capacitors on earth," the luxury gadget doesn't use any aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which helps to improve the sound quality and makes it more environmentally friendly — full power consumption amounts to less than a 25-watt light bulb. The tubes continually adjust themselves so you don't have to, always giving you balanced voltage and current. It's also worth noting that instead of hiding the tubes underneath a bolted panel like other brands, Backert Labs puts them under a door that pops up with the touch of your finger.

Chef-Curated Pantry Collection For the Mother's Day Gift Win

IfOnly pantry collection mothers day
LUXEEPICURE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

Mother's Day is Sunday and that means if you haven't bought a gift yet, you may have a hard time finding something in such short notice. Grabbing a last minute gift card is a decent option, but you know your mom is going to read between the lines — i.e. you fail at giving gifts and were never her favorite child. Don't let your little brother win the Mother's Day war (if you think this doesn't exist, you're naïve or an only child).

Years ago, during a 2 a.m. conversation with a bartender, I laid out my fantasy wedding while we watched I Love Lucy — this is going somewhere, I promise. The plans got more and more ridiculous as time went on, finally ending up with my riding a black bear down the aisle and the wedding party dining from banquet tables suspended off the Cliffs of Moher.

Stand Aside Fifty Shades of Grey: 14 Mainstream Movies That Pushed Serious Sexual Boundaries

blue is the warmest color
ARTS & CULTURE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

Ever since the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey was announced, fans have been losing their minds over just how sexy the movie will be (newsflash, they want it really sexy). Last year producer Dana Brunetti voiced his interest in making two versions of the movie, one R-rated and one NC-17 — though now it seems that the film will be sticking with R. The buzz and controversy around the highly anticipated bondage flick made us think back on past mainstream titles that were almost too sexy for an R rating — and some that definitely were.

Swing Into Nostalgia With the Simple & Classic Ovis Hanging Chair

Ovis Hanging Chair Ladies & Gentlemen Studio
HOUSE | by: JUSTLUXE TEAM

Suspended chairs are one of our favorite pieces of furniture, because they always remind us of swinging outside on long summer days. The Ovis Hanging Chair from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio immediately grabbed our attention because of its simplistic and classic look. Available through Bespoke Global, the chair is made up of a leather sling (in either brown or natural) with a wood and metal frame (either brass or copper), and is suspended from the ceiling using natural cotton rope. If you're wondering where you would hang it, we suggest adding a couple to a game room, kid's playroom, or study.

If you’re binge watching VikingsGame of Thrones or any other lusty/bloody medieval dramas of the season, then you already know that if the royals aren’t brawling or bedding, they’re feasting. And they don’t bother with utensils either (except maybe a dagger — that wedding still hurts, GOT). Here’s a lineup of equally kingly feasts that you can order in the modern age — trencher by special request — and not to worry, there are no bloody surprises in the third act.

Win "Favorite Child" Title On Mother's Day With Agraria TasselAire and Bath Salts

mothers day, agraria
HOUSE | by: MILA PANTOVICH

It's officially May and that means that Mother's Day is going to be coming up fast. Instead of scrambling for a last minute gift — trust us, she'll know — get something ahead of time. Agraria is one of our go-to companies for pure aromas and fantastic packaging, and their TasselAire ($35) perfumed tassels have become our new must-have. Get mom a couple of them (in complementary scents if you want) and she can hang them throughout her home for a lasting fragerance — they come with a bottle of essential oil that you drip onto the core underneath the fringe. While they can be hung from a door knob or closet hook, the tassels look especially cool attached to a key for an armoire or grandfather clock. Pair the tassels with Agraria's special custom-built 40th Anniversary Bitter Orange Gazebo Candle ($325), made with finished alder wood and their traditional woven cane. Round the gift out with their two-pound decorative box of Lemon Verbena Bath Salts (which comes with a scallop shell used for scooping; $45) and you can officially start calling yourself the "favorite child."
