Young royal¿s ear for fashion: Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor sports trendy ‘tragus’ piercing at Queen¿s pre-Christmas lunch

Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor, 20, showed up to the Queen’s pre-Christmas lunch sporting a tragus piercing When the Queen invited her nearest and dearest to a pre-Christmas lunch, the code was dress to impress. Quite what she thought about the new ‘tragus’ piercing being sported by the Duke of Kent’s grand-daughter, 20-year-old Lady Marina-Charlotte Windsor, though, is anyone’s guess. For the uninitiated, the tragus is the small flap of cartilage that sticks out in front of the ear canal. The piecing is usually made with a small hollow needle. According to those in the know, they ‘hurt like hell’. It wouldn’t have been the first time the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have seen such an outlandish body piercing. Zara, who had her tongue pieced when she was just 17 at a tattoo parlour near her boarding school, Gordonstoun, for just £35, famously unveiled her stud to the rest of the Royal Family at uncle Prince Charles’s 50th birthday party in 1998. Fortunately her unflappable mother, Princess Anne, took it all entirely in her stride and just asked her if she was able to speak properly. Lady Marina was educated privately at £30,000-a-year St Mary’s, Ascot and is believed to be ...

We’re back from the fall 2019 High Point Market and our editors were all over town

We’re back from the fall 2019 High Point Market and our editors were all over town scoping out the latest trends in new and best-selling products. Below are eight trends we spotted across all home categories — some are new and some are old favorites found in new places. We’ve created a gallery with even more examples of these trends, so be sure to check that out as well.  Jewel tones are still around this season, but we’re seeing them all — green, blue, yellow, pink and orange — in warmer hues. These colors combined with bold patterns — also trending — can help designers apply the layering techniques that we heard about throughout the week.  In addition to the warm jewel tones, we noticed champagne upholstery across furniture categories. Soft golden hues with a slight shimmer adorned upholstery in many of the showrooms we visited. Hygge is still hot. We saw boucle textiles and other soft textures adorn everything from sofas to rugs, creating a cozy feel. From tables and decorative accessories to lighting and even artwork, facets and faceted patterns are making a statement across categories. Natural materials are still around in a big way, and we’re seeing them displ...

Quarterly. $39 By submitting your email, you agree to our Terms and Privacy Policy and to receive email correspondence from us. When buying new sunglasses, people commonly ask the same question: Do I really need polarized lenses? As they should. After all, polarization is far from a small investment. For example, a classic pair of Wayfarers with polarized lenses ($203) lists over 30 percent more than the non-polarized version ($153). “The lenses look the same when you see them, but there are physical layers, not just coating layers, in these lenses that take a lot more time to make,” said Dave Barton, the founder of premium eyewear brand David Kind. Polarized lenses have an immediate effect on vision, reducing glare off of flat surfaces. The quality of material and method of manufacturing greatly affects both the price point and the optics. “A polarized lens in a $10 pair of glasses is going to have ...

Ask Hackaday: SawStop — Bastion Of Safety Or Patent Troll

At first glance, SawStop seems like a hacker’s dream. A garage tinkerer comes up with a great idea, builds a product around it, and the world becomes a better place. As time has gone on, other companies have introduced similar products. Recently, SawStop successfully stopped Bosch from importing saws equipped with their Reaxx safety system into the USA. This not only impacts sales of new saws, but parts for existing equipment. Who gets screwed here? Unfortunately, it’s the owners of the Bosch saws, who now have a safety feature they might not be able to use in the future. This has earned some bad press for SawStop in forums and on websites like Reddit, where users have gone as far as to call SawStop a patent troll. Is that true or just Internet puffery? Read on and decide for yourself. Back in around 2002, we first started hearing about a new technology called SawStop that made table saws safer. Table saws are one of the most dangerous tools in the woodworking shop, so anything that makes them safer to work around is a welcome innovation. Most Hackaday readers probably already know how SawStop works – the blade is used as a giant capacitive sensor. If the capacitive touch sensor...

Fighting fat with the Arosha-Pressotherapy treatment at Emirates Palace Spa

The main goal of the Arosha skin wrap combined with Pressotherapy is to reduce the appea­rance of that bane of female existence: cellulite. Although the recommendation is a course of eight, hour-long sessions, for this test run at Emirates Palace Spa, I opted for four. And it took me nearly all of them to wrap my head around this strange treatment. Each time, I started out on a spa bed while my therapist sprayed and smoothed a glycolic-acid serum containing fishy-smelling seaweed all over my legs, back, tummy and arms. The goal was to exfoliate, allowing subsequent products to penetrate better. She followed up with a serum containing a tightening combination of caffeine and L-Carnitine, a nutrient produced in the body that is increasingly being used in creams and supplements to target cellulite, with varying opinions on the results. I then stood up, feet apart, while she wrapped me in what looked like a wet tensor bandage, starting under my foot, encasing each leg and winding around my abdomen. It was then time for the Press­otherapy portion, which involved me crawling onto the bed, where Cassandra had laid out three black, Kevlar-type cases, each topped by a plastic sheet. One ...
