Oct 31, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S has been getting a lot of press lately and judging by the early drive reactions, it deserves it. From the outside, it doesn't look all that different from other SUVs, but Porsche has packed enough inside to get it to stand apart. Starting at $74k (and rising up to at least $114k), the tiptronic S E-Hybrid boasts 420hp at 6,000rpm, with a  3.6-liter twin-turbo V6  that hits a 0-60 advancement in 5.2 seconds (5.1 when in Sport Chrono) and a top track speed of 161mph.

Aug 15, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Most people have no idea just what goes into landscape design, mistakenly believing that the job ends with plant placement. In reality, you should be thinking of hiring the right designer for the job outside just as seriously as you handle the one for inside the home—especially if you want your luxury residence to look like your celebrity neighbor's.

There is something that we really love about ethically-derived, ecologically-friendly jewelry.

The Best Vegan, Organic and Eco-Friendly Beauty Buys for Earth Day

Apr 14, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Personally I’ve never been a fan of beauty that’s organic, natural or eco-friendly—I attribute this to my hippie parents where anything “natural” is immediately associated with the scent of patchouli oil.
