Become a ‘Money Queen’ and Reign Over Your Financial Future

If you don’t know how to manage your money — or you’re relying on someone else to do it — you could be in a real bind when one of life’s many curveballs is thrown your way.

No one knows this better than Cary Carbonaro, personal finance expert, author of “The Money Queen’s Guide for Women Who Want To Build Wealth and Banish Fear”

Why You Should Be Booking Your Next Trip During ‘Shoulder Season’

It’s probably of little surprise that summer months are the most popular season for travel. The kids are out of school, the sun is shining and the time is right to make memories. But in recent years, international travel during winter months has become popular in its own right, too. Folks are jetting off in record numbers to soak up the culture (and sun) of other countries, no doubt hoping to avoid snowstorms — and those awkward annual Secret Santa exchanges

Why It’s So Important to Negotiate Your Starting Salary

If you’re one of the country’s current 6.6 million unemployed citizens, you’d likely jump at a job offer — any offer — if it came your way, without negotiating your starting salary. Other circumstances might make you eager to accept a position, too. You could be working in a toxic environment, or switching career fields and convinced that your lack of industry experience warrants lower pay. But think again.

That Dream Trip to Iceland Might Cost More Than You Think

With airlines such as WOW air offering trips from major U.S. cities to Reykjavik, Iceland, for a mere $99, you might find yourself daydreaming about hot cocoa under the Northern Lights.

Movie Review: ‘Logan’

The solo “Wolverine” movies have been a let-down for a lot of fans of the swarthy, clawed, quick-healing hero. Though they’ve arguably gotten better along the way, hopes have been riding high that “Logan,” Hugh Jackman’s last portrayal of the iconic character, will be better than the rest. All signs have been pointing to this being the one. Director James Mangold revealed early on that Jackman had taken a salary cut in order to ensure the movie could be rated R; Jackman has said that he loved the script from the moment he read it, and this felt like a solid film with which to leave the character behind him; and the trailers and promo materials have all been gritty and cool.

Fortunately for all of us, “Logan” does not disappoint.

Interview: Director Ed Gass-Donnelly Talks ‘Lavender’

Lavender centers on Jane (Abbie Cornish), a woman muddling through life with her daughter Alice (Lola Flanery) and less than perfect husband (Diego Klattenhoff). She spends her time photographing old, empty houses, viewing each one as an “epitaph” to the family who once occupied it. She soon becomes transfixed by one house in particular but doesn’t know why she feels a pull toward it. She doesn’t have any memory of it. In fact, she doesn’t remember anything of her life before foster care. No family. No childhood. Nothing.

TV Review: ‘Trollhunters’

“Trollhunters” is an adaptation of a novel of the same name created by Daniel Kraus and director Guillermo del Toro. It was picked up by Dreamworks with del Toro at the helm, and made available exclusively on Netflix.

The show tells the story of Jim Lake (voiced by the late Anton Yelchin), a teenager who has a lot going on, like schoolwork, caring for a busy mother, and navigating the social ins-and-outs of teenagerdom. He adds one more thing to his plate, when a mystical amulet calls out his name.
