The early aughts - Britney loved it, My Chemical Romance hated it, and you are probably trying to forget about it. However, just like your MySpace profile, AIM username, and awkward mirror selfies, the early 2000s will never truly go away. In fact, the trends of the time are making more of a come-back than Jonah Hill circa 2007. Have mercy.
We look to Science for many things - solutions, breakthroughs, concrete details to support an argument we're making. However, rarely does Science, that unquestionable entity, deliver us such a tidy justification for our most ill-advised (or so we thought) habits as what we've just found published in a scientific journal. As they've reported in their study "The Impact of Sad-Spending on Emotional Recovery Process," researchers have found that spending money on superfluous things while sad actually does make you feel better.

The MTA has been flirting with the idea of a breakup with the L train for a while now. Hurricane Sandy put a strain on the relationship and the repairs are going to need some time. The MTA finally decided it was better to cut things off for 18 months rather than get into an open relationship with less frequent visits, starting January 2019. So what are all the hipsters going to do to get their organic vegan cheese fix? Or, more realistically, what are the Manhattan-based workers who can only afford Brooklyn going to do?

The very first (hopefully annual) Panorama Music, Art, and Technology festival went off this weekend without a hitch. Sort of like Gov Ball's chicer older cousin - one who's more mature, more cultured, and on less drugs - Panorama brought only the chillest, artsiest, and most stylish out to Randall's Island for a 3-day fest featuring an expansive VIP "compound," gourmet bites from the likes of the Beatrice Inn, Roberta's, and high-end vegan eatery Nix, and headlining performances by FKA Twigs, Sia, and LCD Soundsystem. Even Kendall, Gigi, and Jaden Smith checked in. Click through for some Instagram highlights, from street style and selfies to the star-studded stage.
Talk about a small fortune; these hotel suites are the crème de la crème of hospitality and the price tags are no joke. If you thought that hitting up the mini bar was treating yourself, think again. These glamorous suites cost a pretty penny, offering everything from personal chefs and butlers to heli pads and diamond rings, but they're definitely worth it. Check out New York's finest (and most expensive) hotel suites but beware, they will probably make you want to redecorate your apartment... or move... or maybe just cry.
