we are family

We call our annual family reunion the Orr-Deal. I apologize for the corniness, but I didn’t name it. (I’d pin that honor on my Uncle Roland’s particular brand of humor.) My dad’s side, with 50 or so people, has been gathering every July for as long as anyone can remember. I don’t get to attend every year, but family reunions have long been beloved by this branch of the family as a time to catch up on people’s busy lives, to reconnect, to meet new grandkids, and to sit around and “visit,” as my mother used to call it.

obsessed with ticking stripes

Originally made to encase feathers or straw for mattresses (ticking comes from a Greek word for covering), the tightly woven striped fabric emerged from under the covers in the 1940s when decorator Sister Parish used it as upholstery.

keep calm and   carry-on

[PRO ADVICE] HITHA PALEPU Author of How to Pack: Travel Smart for Any Trip PLAN AHEAD Assess your kit one week before your trip, Hitha says.

master masks

SHEET WHY PICK IT No-rinse convenience HOW IT WORKS Materials like paper and hydrogel (a biodegradable jelly) prevent the serums in these masks from evaporating, which means more time for your skin to absorb the active ingredients. Drape a mask over your entire face (think of it as the beauty version of a hockey mask) or apply patches on targeted areas, like under eyes. GOOD TO KNOW Ideal for travel.
