How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace
Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in God—an atheist who prays.

Therefore, his fans have given him the nickname "iron-lipped brother". In Li's eyes, helping his fans to buy the most suitable products at the lowest cost is the best part of his job. In addition, sometimes he would ask companies to give coupons to his fans.
Creamy, cool, and luxurious. The year-old California native, who co-owns the coffee shop with his brother, has designed a serene and carefully curated space. The menu—consisting of hearty toasts, waffles, drinks—is simple but beautifully sneaky. Considering how busy Harris finds himself designing floral installations for Ava DuVernay, Florence and the Machine, and this year, a flower-themed Vogue Ukraine editorial featuring it-model Alton Mason one wonders how he found the time to open a second business while also building a healthy and honest social media presence. Each creation is altar-like in its harmony, vibrant and richly hued. Like Fantin-Latour goes electric. In person, Harris—a dancer— is a flurry of movement.
