Mommy blogger Angie, who gives her 4 year old daughter the nickname Mayhem to preserve some anonymity, noticed early on that her daughter was into fashion far more than a typical toddler. Mayhem withdrew interest from her pre-made princess dresses and started using Angie’s scarves and sheets to create her own dresses. In attempt to restore order in her closets, Angie suggested that they make dresses together out of paper. Mayhem was hooked and still is 9 months later, which is an eternity in toddler time, leading us to believe this is more than just a phase. Angie started the hashtag #fashionbymayhem and has begun gathering a following of people who can’t wait to see what the two will come up with next. [Read more...]

It was an unforgettable moment in cinema history and some of the most beautiful theaters were built during this period. [Read more...]
