Streamline Your Routine With These Make-Ahead Lunches

It can get quite pricey to pop out of the office for lunch every day, but that doesn’t mean that you should be reduced to a peanut butter sandwich alone in your cubicle. Instead, prepare these make-ahead lunches on Sunday night and you’ll have tasty and affordable lunch options all week long.

Planet Dailies: Farm-to-Table Fare and Cocktails Fit for Celebrities

September 16, 2015 4:10 pm

Snooki, Mario Lopez, and Rod Stewart all have something in common (other than their hefty paychecks): they've all eaten at Planet Dailies.

After all, the Los Angeles eatery sits just a stone's throw from Hollywood, and it stays on the cutting edge of culinary trends by sourcing all of its fresh ingredients from California farms. And yet, the menu pulls together a spate of international influences. Spicy Thai chicken pizza, ceviche pico del mar, and Mongolian beef all make an appearance on the menu, in addition to American cuisine—and some specifically Californian eats, like barbecue ribs and Cali burgers topped with avocado, California cheddar, and California micro greens.

But many of Planet Dailies clientele, celebrity and otherwise, head to its on-site sister bar Mixology 101. There, you can imbibe the creative cocktails of master mixologist Salvatore Calabrese. The huge cocktail list encompasses everything from martinis and margaritas to sangria.

Organize Your Dresser in 4 Easy Steps

September 9, 2015 12:14 pm

If you’re like most people, your dresser is likely prone to becoming messy, jumbled and, after a long work week, maybe even overflowing. If you want to finally organize your dresser drawers — and keep them that way — use these four simple tips for daily dresser maintenance.

  • Tackle the top. Begin by adding an attractive tray to the top of your dresser where you can corral perfumes, lotions, spare change, and other smalls. Hang a mirror if the dresser doesn’t already have one, then consider adding a lamp if your space is lacking in light.
  • Add dividers. For drawers that hold folded items, such as t-shirts, purchase drawer dividers from a home goods store to keep everything in its right place.
  • Fold clothes vertically. Instead of folding your clothes and stacking them horizontally on top of one another, line them up vertically so that you can easily identify each item.
  • Think outside the drawer. While you might think of using dresser drawers only for clothing, you can also use them to store other loose items. Line a bottom drawer with shoes, add felt liners for jewelry or even use a top drawer for beauty products if you don’t have space for a separate vanity.
