Low-key wedding for the mum of a not so low-key boy band member
Harry Styles dressed similar to the man of the hour, Robin Twist.
This weekend, boy band heartthrob, Harry Styles, suit and tied to escort his mother down the isle and speak on behalf as best man at her wedding, instead of his usual ritual of suit and tie-ing for thousands of screaming girls.
The One Direction golden boy wore a slim-fitted classic black and white suit, matched of course with his distinguishing curls in quite the relaxed quiff up. Harry’s quiff embodied the sentiment of his mother’s wedding, one fitting to the season, as Ms. Anne Cox kept the summery wedding classy—partially outside, low key, and private, only forty-two attendees present.
Anne Cox and Robin Twist were married at the reputable Pecks restaurant, served buffet style, in Cheshire, followed by a reception at a local pub—both dressed to fit the simple and personal vibe the couple deemed necessary.
The intimate setting highlighted by candles, ivory decorations, glittery table settings, and dozens of small pastries kept the mood light and playful on the warm English night, as seen in Mr. Styles' Vine of the family (bride and groom included), chomping down on sweet treats and champagne. If you’re looking for simple and intimate wedding inspiration, especially in these economic times, it looks like Harry Styles' mum knows how to do it! She clearly has got that ‘One Thing’—that having classy taste.
Harry Styles Lived in an Attic for Almost 2 Years. Yes, an Attic
Harry Styles is apparently the ideal house guest.
In a TCA panel Sunday night, the executive producer of upcoming CBS sitcom Happy Together Ben Winston divulged how the former One Direction star became a tenant in his London home. Variety’s TV features editor Danielle Turchiano tweeted the details of Winston’s former housemate situation. According to Turchiano, Styles lived in Winston’s attic for 18 months. It appears that Styles appeared relatively incognito throughout his time there. “No one knew he was there,” Turchiano wrote.
Styles crashing in Winston’s attic provided some artistic inspiration for the producer. “He said living in a quiet ‘boring’ family environment while undergoing a crazy time in his life helped him and inspired Winston to develop #HappyTogether,” Turchiano tweeted.

The singer handed over cash, but the robbers wanted his phone. When he refused to unlock it, one of the men lifted his shirt to reveal a knife, and Harry’s first instinct was to sprint and run and try to ask an oncoming car for help.

Harry has always struggled with finding the place that fit him best. London was nice because it was similar to where he grew up and close to family, but it didn&rsquot hold his heart. The states were just so different from what he was used to and so far from family. It held the appeal of Malibu and everything Los Angeles has to offer. He always spent his time bouncing between the two.
She came into his life as a force of nature, smiling and changing every fiber of him as she went. Harry knew that he had to talk to her or he would regret it until the day he died.
I can&rsquot tear my eyes away from her even if I were lit on fire, I&rsquom sure of it. She is throwing her entire body into the music, her eyes closed as she&rsquos entranced in it. She doesn&rsquot care what she looks like, but dances with how she feels. I&rsquom in awe of the energy she&rsquos providing. The club scene has never been my favorite, especially in L.A but I know if she were always here I would never leave.
She finally opens her eyes and they meet mine instantly. It&rsquos as if she knew I was staring. She could feel it in her soul like the way mine is right now. I feel my cheeks heat up, but I smirk at her completely unashamed. Her dancing doesn&rsquot even falter for a second as she winks before turning back to her friend.
She spins around, jumping around occasionally to the beat. The light shines on her perfectly. I&rsquom sure I&rsquom not the only one in this club that recognizes there&rsquos an angel on the dancefloor tonight. She throws her head back in laughter at something the friend said and all I can wonder is if I could make her laugh like that.
She makes me want to get up and leave the VIP section, which I&rsquove never done to catch the name of a girl. I don&rsquot know if I can go much longer without knowing her first name. Against my better judgement, I leave the higher up VIP area and wander down to the dancefloor. It&rsquos warmer down here with all of the lights and the bodies, it takes me a few minutes for me to find the mystery girl. Once I do, it&rsquos like my feet glue me to the ground. I don&rsquot know what I would say to the girl that I think might plague my every thought for the rest of my life.
&ldquoAnd he leaves his kingdom to come down and join the peasants.&rdquo A voice yells closely. My eyes refocus as my attention is pulled to the Mystery girl now in front of me.
&ldquoIs that what you think of me being up there?&rdquo I ask, mustering the courage to speak to her. I don&rsquot think a person has ever had this affect on me, not like this. Her sass is even more intriguing.
&ldquoWhat? Do most girl you eye-fuck just come right up to you begging to sit with you in VIP?&rdquo
&ldquoThat&rsquos not what I was- eye-fuck?&rdquo I chuckle.
&ldquoYou have been eye-fucking me all night.&rdquo She smirks and takes a few steps closer to me. Her breath fans across my cheek. &ldquoIt&rsquos alright though, I don&rsquot blame you.&rdquo
&ldquoWow.&rdquo I roll my eyes, I can&rsquot let her know she&rsquos right.
&ldquoBullseye. You know I actually thought you might be different, though it&rsquos rare, I am wrong sometimes.&rdquo
She starts to walk away, but as if my body is acting for itself now I grab her upper arm and pull her back.
&ldquoDifferent how?&rdquo You don&rsquot even know me?&rdquo
&ldquoDon&rsquot I? I see the appeal for you, Harry Styles.&rdquo
&ldquoThe girl who isn&rsquot fawning over you, I&rsquom not drooling. I&rsquom just some girl. You don&rsquot know her story.&rdquo She smiles, &ldquoBut trust me, I&rsquod only break your heart.&rdquo
&ldquoI think you already are.&rdquo I tease, causing her to smile, &ldquoCan I at least get a first name, Mystery Heartbreaker?&rdquo
&ldquoOoh, I quite like that. It&rsquos fitting. It sounds like a song title if you ask me.&rdquo
And just like that, she disappeared from my grasp and the dancefloor. Unfortunately, she didn&rsquot leave my head however. For weeks I had lyrics inspired by her floating around my head until I finally sat down in the studio and put everything together. I even went back to the club one night hoping to see her, but she never showed.
&ldquoHarry, where is this coming from? The album was nearly finished.&rdquo Mitch asks, tuning his guitar as we record the final take.
&ldquoI was inspired. I feel now that the album is incomplete without this on it. We still have a few weeks until the release, just enough to add this.&rdquo
The song is one I am very proud of, it&rsquos one I&rsquom sure performing will be outrageous in the best way possible.
I&rsquom sure she&rsquos proud somewhere. The tracklist was released today, the last song being simply titled Mystery Heartbreaker. She was right, it&rsquos a great title.
It didn&rsquot take much time after that for the album to be released. I wonder if she listened to it? She came across it and had the curiosity to see what I had written about her. It took me months to find out the answer to that question.
&ldquoWe&rsquore back in our city!&rdquo Mitch announces with a cheer. I&rsquom sure he&rsquos happy to be back in Los Angeles. We first performed the album here at the Forum and now we&rsquore back.
I can faintly hear Jenny Lewis&rsquo voice echoing through the stadium. This year has flown by. It&rsquos hard to believe 2020 is already more than half over. I hear Jenny on her last song, we&rsquore close to showtime. We all make our way towards where we make our entrance. I smirk hearing the fans get louder in the dark. They&rsquore just waiting in anticipation, it builds and builds until the first note of Light&rsquos Up begins. The lights come on and we kick off the night.
It flies by and I&rsquom sweating, the energy is absolutely amazing tonight. Every night on tour so far has been great, but there&rsquos something about tonight. Being here, I can feel that I&rsquom performing better.
It&rsquos one of our slower ballads from the new album, I finally slow down and look around the audience. I read a couple signs and smile. My gaze dances across all of the faces in the pit that I can see. Faces filled with joy, tears, excitement, until finally a proud smirk. A smirk I have been thinking about for months. Her smirk only widens once she catches my stare.
I finish the rest of the song, my eyes unwillingly drift to hers. It kills me knowing that I hadn&rsquot seen her until this moment in the night. I know what I need to get off of my chest. The finale, which it has been all tour is Mystery Heartbreaker, the powerhouse that the fans have grown to love. Every night I&rsquove sung it, my mind going back to when I met her. I know tonight I have to give it my all since she&rsquos here. She came to my show.
&ldquoAlright, our night has come to an end unfortunately, but I would like to thank each and every one of you for coming tonight. We have one more song-&rdquo
The crowd becomes defaning, they know what song remains. I glance to the woman and she&rsquos laughing looking at the audience reaction.
&ldquoThis next one is called Mystery Heartbreaker. I would also like to announce that we are in the presence of the Mystery Heartbreaker herself, so lets make it a good one.&rdquo
I&rsquom sure that my bandmates are surprised to find out the woman that they ask endless questions about is here tonight, but before they can we start. The beat kicks off and I can say that the entire four minutes of the song were euphoric. I feed off of the energy that the crowd gives me. I know that I am adding more to it, knowing that she&rsquos watching my every move.
I glance down to find her, and it&rsquos just like the night all those months ago all over again. She is throwing her entire body into the music, completely enchanted by the music while I&rsquom completely enchanted by her.
The night ends all too soon. I don&rsquot know how to find her, it&rsquos not like I can just walk back out there to ask for her number. The band and I go back to our big green room with all of the food and a few others hanging out while our equipment gets packed up.
&ldquoShe was here tonight?&rdquo Clare asks, smacking my shoulder. She almost makes me drop my water bottle.
&ldquoDid you know she was going to be here?&rdquo Mitch asks.
&ldquoNo clue. I just saw her face looking back at me from the pit. And it&rsquos killing me because I don&rsquot know how I&rsquom supposed to find her.&rdquo
&ldquoIf she wanted to find you, she would.&rdquo
As if on cue and God had really blessed me, a knock on the doorway rings out. My head snaps in the direction.
&ldquoJohn?&rdquo I ask, the head of security is standing in the doorway.
&ldquoI have a woman here claiming to be Mystery Heartbreaker.&rdquo He looks over his shoulder and doesn&rsquot look so sure of himself.
&ldquoIt could be any fan, you said she was here tonight.&rdquo Adam says, stepping in.
&ldquoAre you sure?&rdquo John asks, making sure.
&ldquoWell that&rsquos awfully high-handed of you.&rdquo She comments as a tease. &ldquoI&rsquom glad you didn&rsquot just kick me out.&rdquo
It&rsquos her. Up close and real.
&ldquoYou know I couldn&rsquot do that to you.&rdquo
&ldquoI would introduce you, but I still don&rsquot know your name.&rdquo I smirk. It makes her smile.
&ldquoSo you&rsquore the girl we&rsquove been singing about for months?&rdquo Mitch asks, stepping closer to meet her.
&ldquoThat would be me, but Mystery Heartbreaker seems a bit formal, you can just call me Y/n.&rdquo
Y/n. I finally know her name.
&ldquoY/n.&rdquo I say her name out loud for the first time.
&ldquoThat would be me.&rdquo She smiles.
She waves goodbye to my bandmates over her shoulder as I usher her out. We walk around the arena backstage.
&ldquoSo, you came to my show.&rdquo I smirk, looking down at her as we keep walking.
&ldquoI did. I kind of felt that I had to once you released a song about me.&rdquo She smirks right back, unwavering. &ldquoI just kept hearing you on the radio sing about how amazing I am, and I figured coming here is the least I could do.&rdquo
She teases so effortlessly. I stop and trap her between me and the wall. She&rsquos unfazed and still smirking up at me.
&ldquoHey!&rdquo I groan with a laugh. &ldquoI didn&rsquot think I was going to ever see you again, and I have to say you left quite the impression.&rdquo
&ldquoApparently. I thought maybe I should give you a second chance.&rdquo
&ldquoReally, but you should be warned, this offer only lasts for tonight.&rdquo
&ldquoWell then, what are we waiting for.&rdquo
We go back towards my dressing room so I can change into something more comfortable and casual. We decide to go out for drinks.
&ldquoSo what does the Harry Styles do for fun?&rdquo She asks, spinning her straw around her finger.
&ldquoWow, are we to the &lsquoget to know you&rsquo part of the night?&rdquo I tease.
&ldquoSomething like that.&rdquo She shrugs.
&ldquoWell, I like to write music obviously. I spend a lot of time in the studio when I&rsquom not touring.&rdquo
&ldquoBut what do you do for you? Just you, no one else. Something that&rsquos fun and selfish.&rdquo
It takes me several seconds to think of what I could answer for this.
&ldquoI paint my nails.&rdquo I flatten my hands on the table to get a good look at the colors on my nails this week, &ldquoI know it&rsquos not a traditionally masculine thing to do, but it brings my joy.&rdquo
&ldquoThat&rsquos a good answer. The colors suit you by the way.&rdquo She admires the colors, her fingers lightly trace over the rings while she looks.
&ldquoAre all men as entranced with you as I seem to be?&rdquo
The question seems to catch her off guard, her hands falter for a second as her eyes shoot up to meet mine.
&ldquoThat depends, how entranced are you? I mean, I don&rsquot think I&rsquove ever had a song written about me before. Definitely not one sung in front of thousands of people. But who knows, as we&rsquove said, I make a good first impression.&rdquo
&ldquoI wouldn&rsquot be surprised, you did say that you would break my heart. Do you still think that?&rdquo I ask, leaning in closer across the table.
&ldquoI don&rsquot know. I definitely could do some damage, but I don&rsquot think I want to.&rdquo
&ldquoReally? You&rsquove had a change of heart?&rdquo I reach my hand forward to join hers.
&ldquoHmm, you could definitely say that.&rdquo
I can tell she&rsquos slightly scared. She&rsquos always been so confident in my encounters with her, a relationship is new territory.
&ldquoThis is going to be fun, you&rsquore already almost in love with me.&rdquo She teases.
&ldquoOh lord, what have I gotten myself into?&rdquo I ask, rolling my eyes as a joke.
&ldquoOne of the best things of both our lives.&rdquo She smiles.
Before I know it, she&rsquos leaning over to connect our lips in a blissful kiss. I have dreamt of her lips many nights before, but nothing could ever compare to the real thing. The feeling of her fingers in my hair, her cheek soft under my thumb.
&ldquoAlright Styles, let&rsquos give this a go.&rdquo
Things couldn&rsquot be better between Y/n and I now. The first two months had a few hiccups, it took awhile for her to let me in completely. Once she did, I couldn&rsquot ask for a greater love. I never believed it when people said that &lsquoyou&rsquoll know when it&rsquos real love&rsquo until she said those three words to me.
It&rsquos been over three years since we officially started dating. We&rsquove been through so much together at this point, it&rsquos weird to think of a time before her. I was happy to tell the fans that she was no longer a mystery nor a heartbreaker. She happily became a new muse for me in a thousand other songs which fans loved picking up on.
&ldquoWow, both of my girls out here talking about me.&rdquo I mutter, noticing Y/n and my own mother whispering about me at the kitchen counter over cups of tea.
&ldquoWell obviously, I have to complain about you to someone.&rdquo Y/n giggles.
&ldquoI&rsquom moving out.&rdquo I tease, our banter still going at this point in our relationship.
&ldquoI&rsquoll make sure to keep that in mind when I go back to my secret lover.&rdquo She teases, her mischievous smirk making an appearance. She presses a kiss to my temple before walking out of the room to give me some time with my mom. It&rsquos been a while since we&rsquove come to visit.
&ldquoShe really is the perfect one for you.&rdquo My mom smiles, watching Y/n leave to go outside with the dogs. Y/n happily taking them out, she&rsquos been complaining about wanting one for awhile.
&ldquoShe definitely keeps me on my toes.&rdquo I smile, looking at her run around outside. She&rsquos still got that childlike spirit as she falls over laughing, the dogs piling over her. She gives me goosebumps and butterflies still. She&rsquos always kept me guessing, but I&rsquove never felt so comfortable around someone.
She brought my soul home to Los Angeles. I never found completely at home in a place until I was in her arms. She made is so I could live anywhere and be perfectly happy, as long as she was there with me. She&rsquos my angel that still enchants me daily.
As I grip the velvet box in my pants pocket, all I can hope is that I can be the same for her.
Separation Anxiety in Pets
Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.
Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.
Separation Anxiety in Pets Can Lead to:
Chewing, Digging and Destruction
What Causes Separation Anxiety:
A number of things can cause separation anxiety in pets. A clear reason right now is due to covid-19 requiring individuals to stay home for extended periods of time. Then these individuals were able to return to their daily lives leaving pets along for extended periods of time. Another reason is some adoptable dogs may have separation anxiety when first adopted because they fear their guardian may leave. Another cause is if a pet experiences a sudden change in its normal routine for example covid-19 it can in return cause separation anxiety in them. Be aware that also moving can cause separation anxiety so if your dog and you move around a lot it can trigger separation anxiety in your pet.
How to Maintain Separation Anxiety:
If your pet has a mild case of separation anxiety try turning when you leave into something exciting for your pet. This can mean offering them treats before you leave so they start to associate you leaving with getting a treat. It can also be helpful to leave them puzzle like toys like the brand KONG offers toys that you can put treats into or put food like peanut butter, or cheese in. This toy will distract your pet for a while, and they get a reward when they play with the toy. These toys try to offer only to your pet when you leave the house. This will train your pet to start to enjoy the time when you leave because they know they will be given a reward.
If you pet has a moderate case of separation anxiety it can take more time to get them accustomed to you leaving. This means taking the process of leaving them way slower. Start only leaving your pet for short periods at a time and continue to reward them. As they begin to get used to it increase the period of which you are gone. Over time your pet will start to recognize that it is oaky you are gone because they receive rewards. For dogs who have severe anxiety especially when they notice you put on shoes or grab your keys. For these pets try to associate these items with you not always leaving. Try to use these items but not leave to show your pet they are not to be feared of these items. If you have a pet who typically follows you around try to do things like telling your dog to sit and stay outside a bathroom door while you enter that room. Gradually increase the time you leave your pet on the other side of the door. This trains a pet that they can be by themselves and will be okay. This process will take a while so remain calm and patient with your pet. This process should start out in a room but should overtime get up to you being able to leave your house and go outside without your pet following. Continue to watch for signs of stress in your pet like pacing, trembling, panting etc. If any of these signs and others appear take a step back and move slower. During this overall process it is important you take it slowly so try to not really leave your pet at all which can be very difficult. Try to arrange if you do need to leave that someone like a friend can stop by and be with your pet or try using a doggy daycare service just so your pet is not totally alone.
Some Other Tips:
When greeting your pet after being gone say hello in a calm manner and then ignore them until they begin to remain calm. Same thing with saying goodbye remain calm and do not give into them being wild and crazy. To calm them try having them perform a task they know like sit or down. Another tip is to possible crate train your pet. If your pet associates their crate with being a safe place this can ease their anxiety when you do go to leave. It can also be helpful if you do not crate your pet to provide a safe room that your pet typically fees the most comfortable in. Another tip is to provide plenty of mental stimulation for your pet like treats and toys. Also try giving your dog some sort of exercise before you leave every day. Leaving hidden treats and food for your pet to find throughout the day will also keep them busy and entertained. If none of the above tips help, try seeking help from a professional in pet behaviors. They will be able to determine a regimen to help you and your pet get better. Medication may also be necessary for severe cases so to speak to a veterinarian about the different options for your pet.
Separation anxiety can be common in pets especially after the year everyone has had. Look for signs of separation anxiety in your pets and notice the different ways you can assist your pet in getting better. Also remember to never punish your pet for any anxious behaviors. Do your best to not discipline and instead use these tips to avoid future behaviors. Separation anxiety can be maintained with patience.
Musician (NEW ENTRY)Frank Ocean’s Met Gala outfit, consisting of a Prada cagoule, white shirt, black tie and black slacks, was shocking because it was so. normal. Boring, even. It cut through the sea of camp outfits (which was the dress code, FYI) and somehow ended up coming off even camper than, say, Katy Perry in a chandelier. A maverick in the true sense of the word.
Elgar Johnson, Deputy Editor, GQ Style:“Frank Ocean is the epitome of understated cool. He has his own mind and isn’t influenced by anyone but himself. He is a true artist who has mastered the art of selecting key pieces that work with his attitude, so he is always in control.”

BN Style’s Best Dressed List at the 2016 Oscars: Remember, There’s only one GAGA and she is now a LADY!
Every movie role, PR stunt, red carpet appearance in the past 12 months has led to this moment—the 2016 Oscars red carpet, where it literally rained supremely gorgeous celebrities draped in diamonds and slinky silk dresses on the red carpet. Literally Hollywood’s who’s who all stepped out with only one thing in mind—to slay or be slayed—and ultimately make it to the very top of every best dressed celebrity list there is, and yes, some have graciously earned our #BNStyleStripe, while others, not so much.
Below are our best dressed celebrities at the 2016 Oscars.
9. Cate Blanchett: Cate looked dreamy and whimsical like a character off a Disney animation in her heavily appliqued sea blue Armani Prive number. Cate supplements with diamond drop earrings, bracelets and ring. The appliques kept the look fresh and youthful—which we most especially love about this look.

8. Jennifer Garner: Structured look had little dominance last night, except in a few cases where Ms. Garner knocked every single contender out of the park. She kept her shoulders bare with a neat up do all packed to the back and drop earrings. C’est chic!

7. Olivia Wilde: Choker plus pleats have never looked this good before. Olivia served major boob game—tastefully though—while infusing her signature high fashion appeal to this risqué (albeit hard to pull) Valentino Haute Couture dress.

6.Megalyn Echikunwoke: Nigerian-American TV actress and now more popularly known as Chris Rock’s new girl friend made her Oscar debut like a seasoned Academy award winning super star actress. For most people, their first major red carpet appearance is usually their worst, but this starlet has proven that you can put your best foot forward even at a mega event like the Oscars, and truly, she did not disappoint. We love the disheveled hair, the all white cut out number and most especially that cuff-like stiletto, we can give anything for them!
5. Jennifer Lawrence: J.Law is always a red carpet delight—this time, she decided to take the edgy route with no less a power house designer than Dior Haute Couture. She looked resplendent in her layered lace number which not only complemented her body but also did magic to her complexion, especially with the blonde bob she had on with her barely noticeable Chopard jewels.

4. Charlize Theron: Charlize can literally do no wrong in our eyes. This red Dior Haute Couture number on Charlize is like a diamond on a diamond ring, which literally mean nothing. She kept it simple with her make up and hair, but some how missed the mark with her super pricey Harry Winston diamond neck piece. If she had walked that carpet without that neck piece, Charlize would have definitely contended for our best dressed lady with the lady Gaga. Over all, Charlize still shines through even brighter than her $3.7 million neck piece which in our books is a huge triumph for her!

3. Daisy Ridley: Moments like these herald the coming of age of a style star, and this, is no exception. Look at those delicate embroideries, imagine the man hours, craftsmanship and jewels put into it—definitely unimaginable. Daisy brought all that value to life as she looked absolutely poised, confident and fashion forward in something that would have either looked underwhelming or overwhelming on another person. She above all brought youth, vitality and her signature pizzazz to this classic house of Channel Haute Couture number.

2. Rooney Mara: Where to begin? Ok, there are starlets and there are stars, and then in really really rare occasions there are superstars. Simply put—Rooney Mara looked every inch a super star in her head to toe sheer Givenchy lace dress. She gave it a super edge with her sleekly packed bun and burgundy lip stain. We adore Rooney’s look for pushing the envelop and yet staying within the bounds of functionality.

1. Lady Gaga: Yes, it is true and cliché – but indeed, we did save the best for the last. Lady Gaga has proven once and for all that it takes literally the barest of everything for everything else to work to perfection. And For Lady Gaga, we imagine this being her most tasking red carpet appearance of all time, and as we imagine, stripping it all down (the drama, eccentricity and constant cry for attention) to this crispy white number is indeed her biggest style moment of all time and for Gaga, that must have been the most excruciatingly difficult thing to do. We absolutely applaud the minimal makeup, the old Hollywood glam-bombshell-esque hair and most of all her $8 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewels. And without a doubt, there can only be one Gaga, and last night—for the first time, she proved to be a Lady too!
