Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, and their kids flew LA to NYC yesterday, arriving at JFK with several suitcases, presumably to spend Christmas somewhere in New York. I say somewhere because they’ve a place in the Hamptons and an apartment in Manhattan and there’s always Beyonce’s. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Every year, near the end of the year, we come to Tofino for a couple of weeks and we stay on the beach at Pacific Sands and it’s beautiful and stormy and comfortable and relaxing away from the city and the wireless is mostly reliable and we can be connected but also not connected at the same time.  Read Full Intro
