When we met with entertainment goddess Giuliana Rancic to discuss her first clothing line, G by Giuliana Rancic, she was glowing-and with good reason. After years of infertility and a public struggle with breast cancer last year, the E! News host is not only healthy, but recently welcomed her first son, Edward Duke, into the world.
"Being a mom is the best kind of job in the world," she gushed before we touched on her new collection-which is actually pretty gush-worthy itself.

Priced from $29.90 to $129.90, the range is available in sizes XS-3X, and includes all sorts of fall essentials, from faux leather jackets and skinny jeans to silk blouses. As she walked us through the pieces, the newbie designer shared why she decided to launch this line, her biggest inspirations and how she's balancing work with motherhood.

In a sea of how'd they convince anyone that was a good idea pilots, there are ten newbies that you should not miss, that everyone will be buzzing about because they are so transportingly fun. One comedy, The Mindy Project, that's the funniest, sharpest thing I've seen since Happy Endings surprised me a couple years ago, with flawed yet sympathetic people saying things people actually think (and don't always actually say, but that's the entertaining part.) Dramas that bring fears to frightening life like Revolution, The Last Resort, and, in it's own way, 666 Park Avenue. There's a juicy sexy soap, Nashville, and a few crime shows that surpass the genre's norm. The most fun? Arrow on the CW, a deliciously dark take on super-heroism that should be a must-watch for any Avengers or Dark Knight lovers.

I've been seeing dipped furniture everywhere -- furniture that's been partly "dipped" in brightly colored paints. While I think it's a pretty cool way to perk up a piece, I'm wondering if this trend is here to stay or just a passing phase.

Hmmm ... hot pink was a pretty bold choice for these table legs, but I love how it livens up the space.
If painting good wood makes you nervous, why not just do it halfway?
I've spotted this side table several times in my browsings, and I have to say, I think it looks awesome!

Did you know that one out of every four couples sleep in separate beds? That’s according to the National Sleep Foundation. Our Shine viewers confirmed that sleeping apart is not uncommon. In fact, when we polled our Shine Facebook family the number of couples who sleep separately was even greater than the national statistic. Almost half of those who responded say they sleep apart from their partner! Kendra from Arkansas says, “Both separate beds and opposite ends of the house”. Deb from Iowa writes, “Separate and love it”.
This sleeping apart trend can create a design dilemma for a lot of couples out there, but interior designers like Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of the design website Apartment Therapy, says there are all sorts of great new ways to make sleeping apart, stylish and comfortable. “It’s more prevalent than we thought. We’ve been seeing a lot of it on our site.”

Save money on cleaning products using these tips We're always looking for creative ways to cut costs and making cleaning products last longer is one way to help reduce your grocery bill. Here are my five favorite tips for getting the most bang from your cleaning product buck:
1. Don't automatically fill both dispensers in your dishwasher even though the detergent box recommends it. It's always best to adjust the amount of detergent to the soil level of the load and the hardness of your water. Start by filling each cup halfway, adding a bit more for extra dirty dishes and hard water. Also, using too much detergent can leave a filmy residue on your glasses and flatware.
2. Always measure laundry detergent before adding it to the machine. I know the numbered lines inside detergent caps are impossible to see, but with today's 2x and 3x concentrated detergents, a full cap is too large a dose for most loads. Adding more detergent won't get clothes any cleaner. Instead,Read More »from 5 Ways to Stretch Your Cleaning Product Dollars

Cover Crops Just when you thought your work was over, the growing season is winding down, the days are growing shorter, the winds colder but your garden still needs your attention.
Huh? What can the garden possibly need now?
Other than "blankets" to keep it warm and snuggly as the temps drop, your garden wants to keep busy and one of the best ways it can do so is by amending its soil. How does it do this?
Cover crops. These will vary depending on your region and can range from rye to legumes, brassicas to flowers but most important-they all have a purpose. Say you're an organic gardener (of course you are!) and you want to enrich your soil with organic matter. You live in a temperate climate and can grow year round…why not plant a crop of beans? They're an excellent choice because, not only do they like it warm, their wide leaves will shade the ground for weedRead More »from Get Ready to Close Up Your Garden with Cover Crops
