The Baldwin Report
Every year at about this time, I am plagued by the same dilemma: the perfect Halloween costume. It’s not that I’m going to a party or even dressing up. I just want to think of it--that perfect outfit that makes everyone say, That. Is. Awesome. I nailed it in 2009 when I got Whiny and his friends to go as the Chilean miners; but since then, I haven’t really, you know, hit it out of the park. I will say this, though: I may not always know what costume to wear on Halloween, but I can definitely tell you what not to wear.
As a filmmaker, there’s something of a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t aspect to a project based on a true story. If the film sticks to the actual story, the result can be anti-climactic. On the other hand, if the filmmakers manipulate the script to make it a Cinderella story or to intensify the drama, they are criticized for it. This film is yet another example of a true story falling flat--although I’m not entirely convinced that’s what left me cold.
Metallics. Deeply colored lips. Smoky eyes. Fall’s color palette is all about intensity—and a splash of playfulness.
Well, Oscar season is officially here, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler is an early contender. The film follows the life and career of a White House butler as he watches history unfold over the decades. Many words describe this film: sweeping, moving, heart-wrenching and heart-warming. Unfortunately, slow and didactic also are on the list, but all in all, the film certainly is a valiant effort.
Woody Allen is a film legend. Yes, he has missed the mark on occasion. Yes, he is showing his age. There is no doubt, however, that he is at his best when he simply is telling a story. This film, an uncomplicated tale of a woman who has fallen on hard times, is a prime example. Blue Jasmine is Woody Allen at the top of his game.
The Colonial Marketplace in Ladue is almost complete. With only a small handful of vacancies left and stores opening left and right, this shopping strip is becoming a destination—in fact, so much so we thought you might like a guide book.
There’s no need to have a cruel summer (unless you’re a Bananarama fan) when it comes to presenting your best face forward this season. Check out these sun-ready shades that will keep you looking hot, day or night.
At the age of 26, Ellie Hock has done a lot of things—she’s earned a master’s in speech therapy, she’s done the show-dog circuit, and she’s started her own business: Urban Nectar was the result of a journey Hock took after the death of her mother in the fall of 2011 from brain cancer. We talked to her about how it all got started.

Do you have a secret? Are you living a shameful (or shameless) existence? Do you hate your body? Do you have a sex tape? Do you think your toddler needs to go on a diet? Have you stabbed your lover? Do you have a more-than-meaningful relationship with your car, your pet chimpanzee, or an inflatable doll? Do you grocery shop at a gas station? Well, there may be some good news for you. Your outrageous, unrefined, crude, addictive, aggressive, compulsive, self-loathing behavior might make you rich and famous…well, rich and infamous. A quick glimpse at the array of what we so literally describe as 'reality shows' may have you wondering if there’s hope for you yet.
While it may seem obvious to showcase red items for the month of February, I have not completely abandoned featuring an actual trend. Red was big for fall and is continuing to be a strong color for spring (yes, spring is slowly arriving into stores).
This movie comes with a tornado of controversy surrounding it. People have accused the film of being propaganda created and released in a calculated effort to aid in Barack Obama’s re-election. On the other side of the aisle, critics are claiming the film is 'pro-torture,' supporting the most extreme methods of interrogation. Is it? I don’t know. What I do know is that this thriller about the decade-long manhunt for Osama Bin Laden is one of the most intense, gripping films I have seen in a while.
In the world of professional gardening, winter brings on different tasks. Hopefully, most of these jobs will be indoors when the weather is at its worst, as snow-shoveling and ice-chipping rank near the very bottom of our favorite jobs list. About the only things lower on that list are cleaning up the bird messes under the seed feeders, mucking out the pond on a cold spring day or spreading ripe manure in the heat of the summer. Gardeners usually use the winter season to plan future plantings, research new materials, order specialty items and peruse plant catalogs.
Got an app for that? ALEXA MILLER does! The St. Louisan is the developer of the StagePage Concert App, a free iOS app that allows concert-goers to document their experience in a multimedia scrapbook. When THE RASCALS recently reunited in Port Chester, N.Y., for the first time in 40 years to perform Groovin’, Good Lovin’, and other 1960s hits, Miller was in the fifth row, using her app to create a virtual scrapbook of the event. Following the concert, she and her father, PAUL MILLER, joined group members and the E Street Band’s STEVEN VAN ZANDT for dinner. Van Zandt, who inducted The Rascals into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, masterminded The Rascals’ Once Upon A Dream reunion, which alternated live performances with a million-dollar multimedia production retracing the band’s story.

It begins innocently enough. A white or yellow spot appears under the tip of your toenail. You don’t think much of it until you notice it’s spreading. Soon, your nail begins to thicken, develop a ragged edge and discolor. It’s ugly, and it could be somewhat painful. You have a fungal infection.

Even at her lowest points, 5-year-old Izzy would coax doctors and nurses into enjoying ‘pretend’ tea parties and princess movies with her. The now 7-year-old was battling leukemia during a two-and-a-half year period at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. “She never gave up,” her father, Dale F., notes. “It was inspiring as a parent because even when we were exhausted and wanted to give up, she carried us.”
Now that you’ve seen all the colors that are hitting the stores this fall, it’s time to make them work for you. LN got the scoop from Marc Reagan, master of artistry for Bobbi Brown.
Story: Israelite Joseph is the 11th of the 12 sons of Jacob and his father’s obvious favorite. Joseph, who has a penchant for dreaming and for interpreting dreams, becomes the subject of increased jealousy when Jacob gives him a beautiful, multi-colored coat. Angered by this extravagant gift, his brothers threaten to kill Joseph but instead sell him into slavery to Ishmaelites who take him to Egypt.
