Drake recently gave Architectural Digest a home tour and sis, let me tell you—my spennanight bag is packed and ready to go.

In images that, frankly, made me feel poor AF, the rapper unveiled his extravagant Toronto mansion, which was expertly designed by luxury home designer, Ferris Rafauli, and it was a lot to process.

The home, which has been a passion project for the 33-year-old "Toosie Slide" rapper for the last six years, is one that Drake hopes will leave a legacy in his city for a very long time:

"Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel. It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong."

The 50,000 square-foot 19th-century limestone mansion features an in-home studio, a full-sized basketball court, and a two-story closet fully stocked with Birkin bags for his "future wife"; and may we all please have a moment of silence for his 3,200 square-foot bedroom, which is pretty much my apartment. Times two. He told the publication:

"The bedroom is where I come to decompress from the world at the end of the night and where I open my eyes to seize the day. The bed lets you float, the shower lets you escape and gather your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while you're getting dressed."

The property, which he originally purchased for $6.7 million is now worth more than $100 million dollars and features marble and gold trimmings, antique mirrors, 44-foot high ceilings, a champagne-equipped headboard, and a 4,000-pound marble bathtub that could probably wash your sins away, tbh.

Drake, who said that his "estate" was built with "overwhelming high luxury" in mind, wanted to be clear that his home looks expensive AF… because it is. The Canadian entertainer told AD:

"It's overwhelming high luxury. That message is delivered through the size of the rooms and the materials and details of the floors and the ceilings. I wanted to make sure people can see the work I've put in over the years reflected from every vantage point."

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
