refinery29 @PariDust's patterns and colors got us feeling some type of way this Monday. Here are a few of her style tips:
1) The one fashion rule I always break is..."'Unacceptable' color combinations." 2) I would never compromise on... "Dulling my personal style in any situation." 3) My closet is filled with... "Jumpsuits." 4) An unlikely accessory I love is... "A sculptural shoe or eccentric headpiece." 5) To switch up my style persona, I wear... "Sunglasses. Like bangs, they can transform your face and create a layer of mystery and an aura around you. Intrigue is always preferable." (She's wearing some killer @Gucci shades here!) #R29xGucci #ad

refinery29 "In Amalfi, lemon groves span from coast to coast. Their giant, world-famous lemons taste like sugar, and the markets are filled with every citrus product under the sun. Try all of the lemon candies, limoncello and lemon-flavored pastas that you can get your hands on! There's no better way to get your Vitamin C." — @cassidyturner

Sip on the freshest lemonade and travel through Italy with us throughout the week🍋

refinery29 "After driving through the winding mountains of southern Italy, you'll reach the coastline town of Amalfi. This fisherman village is bordered by turquoise water and made up of pastel buildings and old cathedrals. Take a quick ferryboat to the island of Capri, and be sure not to miss the mountain-top town of Ravello for handmade ceramics and goods." — @cassidyturner, Assistant Photo Editor

refinery29 #VivaLaBrunch Fun Fact:
The garbanzo was first cultivated approximately around 3,000 B.C. We love a good legume that's tried-and-true.

refinery29 Sometimes makeup is best applied with your fingers. Here's how to get this eye look:
1) Use your ring finger to blend a Champagne-colored cream shadow across each lid.
2) Tap a cream shadow in a rich, chocolaty brown through your crease to create depth.
3) Once you have this base, you can go nuts. Intensify the shades as much as you'd like by layering on powder shadows in the same color family.

refinery29 Imagine you're on the best date of your life, the sexual chemistry is palpable, but you're looking for a long-term thing — not just a hookup. Should you jump into bed with him or her as soon as you’re alone? Or should you wait until you've gone out on a few more dates before sleeping together? The short answer: Do whatever the hell you want.
With Americans staying single longer than ever and singles outnumbering their married counterparts, there really is no norm nowadays when it comes to the timing of sleeping with new partners. According to Pew Research Center, as of 2007, only 38% of adult Americans believed premarital sex was wrong, a number that’s likely only gotten smaller in recent years. Deciding when you’re ready to have sex with someone is really a different-strokes-for-different-folks kind of thing, but what leads couples to hit the sheets at any given moment in their relationship?

refinery29 "I enjoy surfing a lot. Standing on the board, I feel freedom. My life was a complete routine before I started surfing in 2013. I had never had the chance to do sports like this, and initially, I hid it from my parents. They wouldn't approve. I will practice a lot, so maybe one day, I can become a professional surfer. People gossip all the time, but I just don't care about it. My family was offered a couple of times already to arrange my marriage. Many girls get married in my village when they are 12 or 13. As a girl, there are many things we are not allowed to do. It scares me when I see how some women are treated. Sometimes, some people are very nice, and the next time, they are totally mean. I would love to travel abroad to see how girls and women live in other countries." — Maisha, 14
