May 22, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There may be a large gender divide in many workplaces, but in the realm of wine, women have been steadily rising to the top. Not only do female consumers outweigh that of men, the number of female winemakers and sommeliers continue to rise every year. There are probably countless reasons as to why women are reigning supreme on the vineyard, but we’ll leave reasoning to the 10 talented ladies we recently spoke with. From California to Italy, from winemakers to sommeliers, these women’s stories are funny, touching, kismet, and inspirational. Plus, their favorite wines make a pretty amazing shopping list.

May 19, 2015  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

After a recent, mind-blowing meal at Napa gastropub newbie, Atlas Social (the latest offering from local restaurateur tag team, Michael Gyetvan and his wife, Christina), I knew I had to score an interview with Chef Nick Ritchie. Ritchie totally knocked my Manolo Blahniks off with his innovative menu that offers many “they may be small, but they’re packing humongous flavor” plates.

Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander On the Delicate Balance of Playing a Robot Who May Be More Human Than You Think

May 7, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Ex Machina is one of those films that will completely blindside you, and not in the ways you may think. I struggled with whether or not this interview with star Alicia Vikander should be kept 100 percent spoiler-free—since the less you know about this science fiction thriller before seeing it, the better—and ultimately opted to omit the details regarding its ending.

Now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner, men’s grooming trends have been narrowed down to two looks: clean shaven and a light stubble. And while we love a bearded gentleman, we understand warm weather can be a serious deterrent for the lumberjack look.

How Three Top Chefs Collaborate to Make Machneyuda One of Jerusalemís Best Restaurants

Apr 1, 2015  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

Machneyuda, Jerusalem’s award-winning, wildly successful restaurant is definitely unusual. The homey, hodge-podge space is filled with mismatched hand-me-downs, colorful wallpaper embellished with childhood photos of the wait-staff, and stacks of wooden crates full of fresh produce gathered during the chefs’ daily market runs. Even more extraordinary is the fact that it’s owned by three highly accomplished Israeli chefs: Asaf Granit, Yossi Elad and Uri Navon.

Mar 31, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The circus industry puts a lot of effort maintaining the illusion of caring and safety, into the idea that their animals are part of their big circus family and that they perform because they like to.

Inside the World of Divergent: Stars Chat About Auditions, Training, Fears & Favorite Scenes

Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.

Feb 18, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Here's Why Everything You Thought You Knew About Thread Count is a Lie

Feb 17, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When it comes to the thread count of our sheets, we’ve always been told that the higher the number, the higher the quality and the higher the price—add the term “Egyptian cotton” and the price goes up again. It all seems logically sound until you start noticing Egyptian cotton sets boasting 800+ counts being sold at various discount stores for less than $100.
