Jennifer Lawrence Is One of Elle’s Women in Hollywood 2017 …

Jennifer Lawrence has been named one of Elle‘s Women in Hollywood, with a special mag cover for the month of November.

Also chosen for the annual honor are Tessa Thompson, Margot Robbie, Jessica Chastain, Laura Dern, Cicely Tyson, Riley Keough, and Kathleen Kennedy. Stay tuned for more!

In her issue, Jennifer spoke about the pressures of making films.

“The only time I find myself worrying about the result is when I’m filming, because I’m working all day, and then I come home and my brain’s just like, What should we panic about? After I’ve finished the process, though, it’s done for me. I’ve done my work, and I’ve gotten what I need to get out of it—I’ve fulfilled myself. What happens next doesn’t really matter,” Jennifer responded.

FYI: Jennifer is wearing Dior.

Room for everyone

As with most things in life, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” After years of being barred entry to the man cave – that mysterious lair for sports watching, video game playing and general tinkering – the ladies have responded with their own private sanctuaries.

The escapes for those of the female persuasion are typically well-appointed and sunlight-laden, and are used as anything from a yoga or art studio to a reading or tea room.

Rustic retreat

Ann Preischel’s Hamburg “she-shed” was inspired by childhood memories of the one her Aunt Jane had at the family farm in Youngstown.

“I felt like royalty in that little building; it was like something out of a movie,” Preischel said of her aunt’s oasis. A sign reading “Velvet Hall” hung above the door and inside, visitors were surrounded by fresh flowers in Mason jars, antique tablecloths on every surface and welcoming throw pillows on the chairs. “It was her own personal castle.”

A clear nod to her aunt’s homestead, the décor in Preischel’s shed might best be described as farmhouse chic. Choosing a mostly white motif, it is filled with charming collectables and a coziness that makes it the perfect place to enjoy a good book, play cards with friends or simply relax with her dog out of the sun’s hot rays.

Said Preischel, “It’s quaint. It’s quiet. It’s 30 feet away from my house. It’s the most affordable getaway I could have ever asked for!”

Designing den

For Julie Berrigan of Lewiston, her private upstairs area is a bit more functional than fanciful. An independent jewelry and accessories stylist, it serves as a mini showroom of sorts and helps keep that part of her life organized.

“It’s my own little Pinterest room,” said Berrigan, who also uses it for gift wrapping and crafting. “It keeps me from cluttering the kitchen countertops or dining room table. I love that it’s my own space and I can dump what I want in it and know where to find it.”

Spending up to two hours a day in the hobby hideaway, Berrigan laughed that her two young daughters often ask their father where she is. And while they are certainly welcome to craft alongside her, it’s understood that this is Mommy’s room.

“Let’s just say they know to proceed with caution,” joked Berrigan.

Soul-feeding
sanctuaries

Sometimes your designated space can be more than just an escape…it can be a sacred place to nourish your mind, body and spirit.

Firm believers that creating peace around us inspires peace within us, Susan and Ciara Morreale – owners of Her Sanctuary, a boutique and collaborative workspace on Hertel Avenue – have teamed up with Roswell Park to create sanctuaries for women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

Using products from their store – including health and wellness books, meditation pillows, yoga mats, home décor, crystals, essential oils and diffusers, wellness teas, juices, snacks, and oxygen-increasing plants – the mother/daughter pair has designed a space within Roswell’s Resource Center to promote healing and well-being for all patients. Later this fall, they will begin drawing one name each month, to help that woman create a personal sanctuary in her home or office.

“Everyone’s space is going to be very individualized, and very much about what each person needs to nurture their soul and take care of themself from the inside out,” said Susan Morreale.

Celebrating ten years as a breast cancer survivor, Susan herself was treated at Roswell, so this is an especially personal endeavor. “There are so many decisions these women have to make about what they’re going to do; it will just be nice for them to be surrounded by empowering, inspirational, feel-good stuff,” she added.

Wedding Registries: Keeping up

Over time, the wedding registry has changed, and what couples now register for are not just china, silverware, and items that help fill a new home.

Amanda Manke, gift registry director at Younkers said, “Registries have become much more casual over the years, allowing couples to inject color and fashion into their registries. Things like blue dinnerware, colorful and metallic cookware and kitchen electrics in every color of the rainbow.”

Nowadays, the couples ask for a variety of gift items and this even includes gift cards.

“Having a wedding registry ensures that you will get the gifts you want to need to build a home together. If you don’t tell your guests what you want you never know what you will get,” Manke said.

For the bride and groom, registering for wedding gifts should be fun and the perfect time to upgrade some household items, and most of the time the guests want their presents to be useful, wanted and needed.

“The No. 1 tip I give to all couples is to take an inventory at home of what they need, what you need to replace, or upgrade,” Manke said. “This way you can be confident that you are requesting all the right items for your home together and also don’t be afraid to register for fun items like outdoor furniture or higher priced items like a stand mixer. You never know who will buy you what.”

But there are trends in gift buying, just as there are trends that drive any other aspect of a wedding.

For instance, according to Younkers, in recent years some of the top trending items have included stand mixers, Keurig coffeemakers, waffle makers and luggage. They compete with the more classic gift choices of wine glass sets, bath towels and bedding.

But tradition seems to rule.

“Towels for the bathroom and kitchen in neutral colors like grays and browns are our most registered for items,” Manke said.

Non-traditional registry items include items that can be shared with friends or family when they have a get together.

Manke said, “We are seeing a lot of nearly-wed and newlywed couples entertaining friends and family casually at home, Sunday brunch, sporting events, cookouts, game nights etc. This means they are registering for more serving pieces, serving utensils and drinkware than ever before.”

It is also best to register months before the wedding so the guests have plenty of time to choose what they want to buy.

It is also best to register at two to three stores so the guests have plenty of places to go, along with plenty of times to choose from.

“Couples should register six to nine months prior to their wedding, this ensures that they have a full list of gifts available for wedding showers,” Manke said. “The main focus should be having enough gifts for guests to choose from on each of their registries. For example, if you only have two to three gifts on your list at one store your chances of getting those items goes down. Guests just like the registrants like choices.”

There are tons of options out there on what to register for, which is why it is better to decide early on what to register for and where to register.

Many stores even offer post-wedding discounts that will allow couples to purchase registry must-haves that the guests did not purchase on the registry.

If cash was gifted, this would be a perfect opportunity for the couple to personally choose items they registered for but did not receive at a great discounted price.

Remember, registry shopping should be one of the more fun parts of wedding planning.

As a couple, you have hand selected everything needed for the kitchen, bedroom, and beyond. All the items are a great way to help start a beautiful future with your spouse-to-be.

Manke said, “As registries have changed over the years the new rule is that there are no rules. Have fun, add items you want and need. Just because someone says you should or shouldn’t register for something doesn’t mean you have to listen to them. If you want to register for a pair of yoga mats so you can work out together, just do it.”
