DIY + Design + Lifestyle



Lauren Makk, HGTV host and DIY expert, is taking the design world by storm with her unique and accessible take on luxury design and DIY.

Listen to Lauren Makk and Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast RSS / SPOTIFY

You don’t often hear the words ‘DIY’ and ‘Luxury’ in the same sentence, but that’s because we didn’t know…until now. DIY expert, interior designer, and TV host in Nashville, Tennessee, she has caught the attention of fans with her budget-friendly approach to luxury DIY and design.

Lauren may be familiar to you from her appearances on various design shows such as Trading Spaces and ABC’s FABLife, but today she’s reintroducing herself and taking on the world of design with a unique perspective.

Across her digital and social media platforms, Lauren reveals her best thrifty design tips and tricks, as well as her luxury DIY and redesign projects. Click HERE to see some of her work.

Lauren Mark’s goal is to change the stereotype of DIY in the past, which is why she insists on being an “Interior RE-Designer,” focusing on re-using common everyday materials in new, impressive, and sophisticated ways. ”I love being in the design game with depth and texture,” she says.

Her sincerity and dedication to making design affordable have earned her the title of “Home Girl Next Door,” where you can find a lot of great finds for decorating your home or anywhere else. She shared: “I want my space to really reflect who I am or who my client is.” Click HERE to view some of her creations, such as ”Spring Inspired Floral Arrangement”.

”It all started with my great passion for graffiti,” Lauren confesses. Her plan from a young age has been to become an artist through a passion for design, which was fostered at a young age by her mother, who helped her gain those domestic skills that Lauren has mastered today through her deep African American roots from the South. She gathers her inspiration from being generations of housekeepers in her family. ”My mother really instilled in me a passion for creating that feeling of HOME,” she says.

Lauren Makk, a native of Oklahoma City, grew up in the home improvement industry. ”I have learned in the last two years, how important our home is. It’s our safe space,” she assures. ”I don’t care if you’ve been on vacation for two weeks or two years in jail. Everyone wants to go home because that’s where people feel safe,” she adds. Lauren and her mom enjoyed flipping houses as a hustle.

With her years of experience in construction, she has wanted to combine her three innate talents for DIY, design, and art to create her renowned firm Lauren Makk Interiors, which specializes in “Accessible luxury.”

Makk is now building on her brand and influence to take DIY and design to a whole new level. In fact, she currently judging the talent of young builders on Shop Class for Disney+ and Design Star: Next Gen on HGTV, among other shows.

Makk’s distinct perspective and experience have set it apart from others in the industry. ”I honestly feel like design is what my purpose here on Earth,” she says.

Congrats Lauren on your 1.5-year mark of sobriety. We’re always here for you.

ABOUT ELTON JOHN: 

Elton’s career achievements to date are unsurpassed in their breadth and longevity. Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time. In the UK and US charts alone he has 1 diamond, 32 platinum or multi-platinum, and 21 gold albums as well as over 70 Top 40 hits. He has sold more than 300 million records worldwide. 

He holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind 1997”, which sold over 33 million copies. Released in 2017 ‘Diamonds’ the Ultimate Greatest Hits album, became Elton’s 40th UK Top 40 album and has spent over 200 consecutive weeks in the top 75 of the UK album charts, over 110 of these in the top 20, and in August 2022 surpassed the threshold for 1 million combined chart unites in the UK. This release celebrated 50 years of his songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin. August 2018 saw Elton named as the most successful male solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 chart history. At present, he has logged 70 Billboard Hot 100 entries, including nine No. 1s and 28 Top 10s. ‘The Lockdown Sessions’, an album of collaborations recorded during the COVID-19 Pandemic, was released in October 2021 and went straight to number 1 in the UK album Charts, becoming Elton’s 8th UK number 1 album in the process. It’s lead single “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix) with Dua Lipa” became a bona fide global hit, reaching number 1 in the UK and Australian singles charts. Its success meant that Elton became the first ever solo artist to score a UK Top 10 hit single in 6 consecutive decades. His most recent release, “Hold Me Closer,” featuring Britney Spears debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, providing Elton with his tenth Top 10 hit. The song also climbed to #1 in Australia and Canada, #3 in the UK, and most notable, #1 on iTunes in over 40 countries upon release. In America, Elton John holds the record for longest span between Billboard top 40 hits at 50 years.   

Elton announced the ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour at New York’s Gotham Hall in January 2018. Encompassing 5 continents, and over 350 dates, this 5-year-long tour started in September 2018 and marks his retirement from touring after more than 50 years on the road. In 2019 it was named Billboard’s Top Rock Tour and Pollstar’s Major Tour Of The Year. To date, Elton has delivered more than 4,000 performances in more than 80 countries since launching his first tour in 1970. 2019 also saw the release of ‘Rocketman’ and global bestselling autobiography, ‘ME’. An epic fantasy musical motion picture of Elton’s life, ‘Rocketman’ has been a commercial and critical hit, taking close to $200m at the box office. It has won an Oscar, two Golden Globe Awards and a Critics’ Choice Award and garnered BAFTA nominations. Its soundtrack was also nominated for a GRAMMY Award. 

Among the many awards and honors bestowed upon him are six GRAMMYs, including a GRAMMY Legend award, a Tony and two Oscars, a Best British Male Artist BRIT Award, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Kennedy Center Honor, Legend of Live Award, 13 Ivor Novello Awards between 1973 and 2001 and a knighthood from HM Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music and charitable services”. Most recently, Elton was awarded the 2021 iHeartRadio “Golden Icon” Award in recognition of his incredible influence on music and pop culture. In February 2022, he topped the inaugural Pollstar Artist Power Index, a weekly rank of the world’s most popular artists based on streaming, touring, airplay, and social media metrics.  

In 1992, Elton established the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which today is one of the leading non-profit HIV/AIDS organizations and has raised over $515 million to date in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. In June 2019 President Emmanuel Macron presented Elton the Légion d’honneur, France’s highest award, for his lifetime contribution to the arts and the fight against HIV/AIDS. Elton was awarded the Companion of Honor in the 2021 New Year Honors list. The highest acknowledgement in the list, Elton became one of only 64 people to hold the honor. September 2019 saw The Royal Mail issue a set of 12 stamps as a tribute to Elton being one of the most popular and enduring music artists of all time. Elton was only the second individual music artist to be featured in a dedicated stamp issue. In July 2020 the Royal Mint released an Elton John commemorative coin, the second in their music legends series to celebrate ‘one of the most successful and enduring artists of all time’. Always a tireless champion of new artists, Elton has been a leading industry voice in lobbying the government for young artists visa-free touring rights in Europe post Brexit.

Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever via 360 MAGAZINE.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack, produced by Ryan Coogler, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Dave Jordan is set for release on Nov. 4 from Roc Nation Records/Def Jam Recordings/Hollywood Records. The soundtrack is available for Pre-Save/Pre-Add/pre-order here. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, opens in U.S. theaters Nov. 11, 2022.

Rihanna’s lead single “Lift Me Up” makes history this week as it becomes the most-added song in U.S. radio history, amassing the most ever single day spins and the largest ever single day audience.

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By soundtrack features over 40 international artists recorded in Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico City, London and Los Angeles. Featured artists include Rihanna, Tems, Fireboy DML, OG DAYV Ft. Future, CKay Ft. PinkPantheress, E-40 and many more.

Ludwig Göransson, who has two Emmys®, two Grammys® and an Oscar® to his credit, composed and produced both the score and the original songs on the soundtrack. His extensive work producing artists (Childish Gambino, Adele, Haim, Justin Timberlake) as well as his work scoring films and TV series (Black Panther, Creed, The Mandalorian) made him uniquely qualified to helm both parts of the soundscape. 

For their fourth cinematic collaboration, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Coogler and Göransson set out to create an innovative soundscape where Göransson says, “The songs and score are one.” The two artists have talked about this approach since their days attending USC Film School, and finally made it a reality with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

In what became a massive labor of love, Göransson spent over 2500 hours recording the score and soundtrack – which involved six studios, across three continents and five countries. Over the course of the film, the audience will hear over 250 musicians, two orchestras, two choirs and over 40 vocalists. 

Coogler was intimately involved in the creation of the music for the film, from co-writing lyrics on the Rihanna track “Lift Me Up” to suggesting the cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” performed by Nigerian singer/songwriter Tems and bridged together with Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” for the film’s instantly viral trailer.

Göransson said, “Ryan and I talked about the importance of creating an immersive journey of sound and voice. If we used a song in the film, we wanted it to be the entire song, and to be connected to the story. Thematically, we wanted to move the audience from grief to celebration. When you listen to the soundtrack, you can close your eyes and relive the experience of the movie. That was the intention.”

Given the story is inspired by both Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures, recording sessions were set up in both Lagos, Nigeria, and Mexico City, Mexico, as well as Abbey Road Studios in London. Producers worked with popular artists from Lagos including Tems, which has become a hotbed of musical innovation. In addition, emerging rappers and artists from Mexico City are featured on the soundtrack including rapper Pat Boy, who raps entirely in Mayan. 

While in Mexico City, Göransson worked closely with music archeologist Alejandro Rojas to explore and research Mayan music. Instruments native to both Nigerian and Mesoamerican cultures were featured in the creation of the soundscape.

In Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – one of the most highly anticipated film events of the year – Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta Mejía as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livinalli.

STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE

LADY QI’RA, DARTH VADER, THE KNIGHTS OF REN, AND MORE OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS OF STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE COME TOGETHER ON STEVEN CUMMINGS’ CONNECTING VARIANT COVERS

See all five STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE connecting covers together for the first time and pick up

STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE #1 on November 16

Following Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters and Star Wars: Crimson Reign, writer Charles Soule will complete his trilogy of game-changing Star Wars comic book epics this November in STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE! The five-issue limited series will continue to spotlight the breakout character from Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lady Qi’ra. Since her comics debut, the criminal leader has had a tremendous impact on Marvel’s Star Wars comics storytelling, and STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE will see Qi’ra set her bold overarching plan in motion: ridding the galaxy of the Sith! The series will be drawn by artist Steven Cummings, who also worked on Star Wars: Crimson Reign. In addition, Cummings has crafted a stunning connecting piece that will adorn all five issues. These variant covers show some of the stars of the saga including Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, the Knights of Ren, and more key characters who will take sides in the upcoming conflict!

The mysterious syndicate Crimson Dawn and its leader Lady Qi’ra have become the galaxy’s most wanted criminals, as Emperor Palpatine realizes the scope of Qi’ra’s plans against him and moves to destroy her. But Qi’ra still has tricks up her sleeve, and with the help of the Knights Of Ren and her many other allies, she will not go down without a fight!

Hidden Empire is set between Episodes V and VI. So, there are things this story can do and things it can’t,” Soule explained to StarWars.com. “That said, I think it will deliver a deeply satisfying conclusion to Qi’ra’s arc here, and readers will understand how her choices in this story impacted events all across the Star Wars galaxy at this time. As with many of the comics and novels and ancillary stories beyond the films, the idea is to deepen the experience and understanding of the characters. There are direct connections here to both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi — and beyond — and I think the fans will be very happy.”

Check out all the covers now and be there when Qi’ra’s deadly ambitions send shockwaves throughout the galaxy in STAR WARS: HIDDEN EMPIRE #1 on November 16. For more information, visit Marvel.com

Cebulski. “Looking ahead to 2023, we’re excited to expand the anthology series to broaden our focus on characters and families, giving our writers, editors, and readers more stories and more characters in the grand tradition of Marvel’s Voices.”

Loki at Madame Tussauds via 360 MAGAZINE

LOKI × MADAME TUSSAUDS

LOKI OF ASGARD WAX FIGURE COMES TO MADAME TUSSAUDS NEW YORK WITH GLORIOUS PURPOSE

Loki Makes Worldwide Debut at New York Comic Con Before Arriving in Times Square, Adding a Little Mischief to the World’s Greatest Wax Museum

Loki, God of Mischief, is teleporting straight to Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square after an official debut at New York Comic Con. The Loki figure is inspired by his character from the quintessential ‘Battle of New York’ sequence featured in Marvel Studios’ The Avengers (2012), making New York City the perfect home for The God of Mischief. To celebrate the arrival, Madame Tussauds placed the Loki figure in front of Grand Central Terminal, an iconic view immediately recognizable by Marvel fans as the site of the battle and one of the most historic New York City landmarks. The notorious Asgardian trickster is sporting his classic headpiece, glowing scepter and green and gold cloak. No, this Loki is not shape-shifting, but strikingly based on the likeness of English actor Tom Hiddleston.

“We’re so excited to introduce everybody’s favorite villain, Loki, into the Hall of Heroes,” said Madame Tussauds New York Marketing Executive Ben Shapiro. “The Loki figure will live around the corner – but never in the shadow – of his brother and frequent foe Thor. We know fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be beyond thrilled to encounter the mischievous Prince of Asgard at Madame Tussauds New York.”

Each figure created by Madame Tussauds represents people, characters and icons who have reached the top of their field or made a significant impact on the world or within the pop-culture zeitgeist. As one of the all time favorite arch-supervillains turned anti-hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki is the perfect character to receive the ‘royal’ wax figure treatment and stand amongst other Marvel Super Heroes, including Black Panther, Spider-Man, Thor – God of Thunder and the legendary creator Stan Lee. Tom Hiddleston’s iconic character is featured in more than six feature films, as well as the eponymous role in the live-action series Marvel Studios’ Loki (2021) on Disney+.

“Our teams at Marvel and Madame Tussauds have been working together for years to bring some of our most iconic characters to life, so we’re thrilled to see Loki join their lineup of Marvel Super Heroes for fans to see for themselves in New York,” said Brian Crosby, Director of Themed Entertainment Development at Marvel. “We can’t wait to unveil the first look for this Loki figure during New York Comic Con this year at the Marvel booth.”

This latest wax figure installation comes on the heels of the recently added Marvel Universe 4D cinema experience and an expansion to the MARVEL Hall of Heroes, both part of a multimillion-dollar investment into North America’s flagship Madame Tussauds attraction.
