As an owner of a house with wooden floors, I am all about DIY rugs. They’re great to have underfoot but so expensive (well, for the nice ones anyway!). There was a rug I loved from Freedom almost identical to the one on the right in the picture but it was $600! This tutorial is fantastic and means I can get the same look for less - which is what we all want right?!
DIY Isabel Marant for H&M Inspired Lace Up Pants Tutorial from A Matter of Style here. These are a more wearable version of the Isabel Marant pants because the lacing isn’t from top to bottom - just the knee down.
Sandra Bullock’s box office take over the last five years is as good or better than most male leads. The same can be said of Melissa McCarthy, who also has the attention of about 10 million viewers a week on Mike and Molly when she’s not on the big screen. Both of them have been integral to the marketing and promotion of their films, so it’s clearly not that moviegoers won’t watch a blockbuster with a woman in the lead.
But in very specific terms, Gravity was marketed as a co-headlining movie from Bullock and George Clooney, but anyone who saw it knows that it was Bullock’s film. Clooney was perceived as being necessary to market the movie in spite of the fact that since 2008, his movies have generated about $634 million total at the domestic box office, compared to Bullock’s $891 million. During that time, Clooney made nine films to Bullock’s six, meaning that the per-film average is even more heavily skewed in Bullock’s favor.
During that time, the total budget for Clooney’s films came to a minimum of $307 million and the budget for Bullocks clocked in at $214 million. That means that for every dollar spent producing a George Clooney film, the studio saw $2.07 back. That isn’t half bad, really. You know what it is half of? The $4.15 they saw on every Sandra Bullock dollar they spent during the same five-year period. Each of them had a couple of low-budget indie films and a couple of failures during the five-year period, but Clooney–the name Warner Bros. was convinced was necessary to promote the film–averaged just over $70 million per film during that period while Bullock averaged upwards of $148 million.
So, what you’re saying is - we can’t get a Wonder Woman movie because movie executives can’t count?
Pretty much - or….could it be that movie executives can’t think?
Jennifer can’t leave Duke, well, I couldn’t leave him. NO!!!! It’s over!! NO!!! These hour shows should be at least 55 minutes.
On December 6th, 1989, shortly before five ‘o’ clock and the end of classes before Christmas break, fourteen female engineering students were shot and killed at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec by a gunman who claimed he was “fighting feminism”.
The massacre stands as one of the most tragic hate crimes in Canadian history.

when will it end. we are such a cruel species. Altho, there are people I could cheerfully kill and figure a ticket for littering is the most I should get.
My dinner arrived. Meanwhile, back in Haven,
"Something went wrong" understatement.
Fucking William is like a drug dealer - maybe Duke will get his trouble back?
"I think going down there is a real bad idea" Ya’ think???
Why do they always need Four People?
Duke, what if it goes wrong?? This is fuckin’ Haven!
William is such an abuser -
"I have to do this to you for you" or whatever. Okay, so they can’t kill him, they’ll lose Audrey. I wonder if that works in other ways, for example, does he get cramps, PMS? What did he feel when she gave birth to her son?
Can they put the baby in a sound proof room? Nah….it’s supernatural.
Tingly trouble…..what could go rong?
Wait, this is Haven, everything could go wrong.
William is such douche. Why is he there? If they had to introduce another character, why that actor?
To be fair, Tthe first time I saw this actor in Eureka, I knew that was a face made for slappin’.
William is arrogant, controlling, pompous and may I say ugly.
Damn, what a trouble! When this family cries, people die.
I love Nathans faith in Audrey
Damn, that ‘cry & die’ trouble family should be spayed & neutered.
The Harper family funerals must be small & definitely a crap shoot. How could they even think about having a baby? They’re probably of the Republicans persuasion, I want what I want & screw the world.
How about doing a SIDS on the baby?
