Although they channel a different energy, we believe neutrals can be as dazzling their brightest, most colorful counterparts. The look of super neutral, then, is discreet as it is dramatic, high-impact but low-key. It’s a look that begs admiration without being showy, elevating the simple to sublime. It’s a Sunday morning spent in a soft linen bed; it’s a cup of steaming coffee in rustic kitchen on a cool morning. It’s a bit messy, a bit imperfect: just like life.

Rebooting with Joe Cross: Our bodies are designed to be healthy and strong, and repair themselves in case of accident or illness. But these days, we’re introducing things into our systems that demand that those repairs are in overdrive. A period of juicing — which I call a “Reboot” — gives your digestive tract a rest while providing your body with incredible nutrition. I reckon about 2 lbs. of produce goes into every juice. Now, your rarely going to sit down and eat that for lunch or dinner. But juicing it is fast and easy, and allows you to flood your body with micronutrients, enzymes and vitamins, which are largely absent in processed food. That combination – reducing our consumption of stressors to zero, while taking our consumption of the good stuff to 100% — allows your body to reset itself and resume the nature state of greater wellbeing.

At the age of 14, Horst began a three-year apprenticeship in the beauty and salon industry. His intuitive talent, creativity and dangerous charisma catapulted him to the top of the swinging sixties hair competition circuit. A rock star life followed, leading him to the U.S. where fate landed him in the Midwest. By 1965, he started his own salons and a product line called Horst. In 1978, Horst founded Aveda Corporation, a global plant-based cosmetic company, and ushered a new consciousness into the world of beauty. Nearly two decades later, he sold Aveda to Estee Lauder. He shifted focus to Intelligent Nutrients, a health and beauty company that lives to the highest standards of 100% food-based, safe, non-toxic and organic ingredients. ♥♥♥

Gorgeous Indian Rabari Mirror Pillows. The Rabari are a tribal group who have roamed the deserts and plains of what is today western India for almost 1,000 years. They are now found largely in Gujarat and Rajasthan, as well as some surrounding states and Pakistan. Their name, meaning ‘outsider’, refers to the fact that, as nomadic herders, they would traditionally be found on the outskirts of towns, where there was enough land for their grazing herds.The Rabari are renowned for their embroidery skills and, as well as making their own traditional costumes, the women will make bags and bed covers, often using colourful twines and small pieces of mirror.

Susan Sarandon . At 67, even to her, Sarandon’s life feels like a slightly surreal soap opera. She longs to simplify things; to have a “blob day”, when she can just get up and have no plans. She was never particularly ambitious. “I’m here because all my plans failed,” she says. But there was something about the movie-making process that enthralled her. It wasn’t the reviews – she loved what it revealed about who she was; loved how it stretched her. “It’s hard to know who you are in a protected environment,” she says. “But if you’re bounced against people, you are exposed; you are vulnerable. When you’re making film, it’s fast and it’s intense.” She was in love with the danger.

Wimbledon 2014 . When Andy Murray walks out to open his Wimbledon defence, in the traditional 1pm slot on Monday, he will tower over his diminutive Belgian opponent David Goffin. This will be a David vs Goliath encounter in both physical stature – Goffin claims to be 5ft 11in and 10st 10lb on his ATP page, but was surely exaggerating in the style of your average match.com profile – and in world ranking.
