No One Will Believe Your Chic New Wallet Is From Amazon — and Costs Only $15

No One Will Believe Your Chic New Wallet Is From Amazon — and Costs Only $15

Few belongings sustain as much wear and tear as your wallet. Your wallet is on you at all times, thrown into whatever tote, backpack, or suitcase you need that day or carried bare in your hand as you rush out to buy lunch. A good wallet can seamlessly transition from occasion to occasion, but when it inevitably gets knocked onto the street or scuffed by a zipper (or flat-out lost), you’re going to be pretty upset if you’ve spent hundreds on a designer card carrier. 

What few people know is that Amazon is actually a great source for carefully crafted little luxuries, like wallets, card holders, and coin pouches. With the detailed construction of some of these items, your friends and family will assume you got them at high-end department stores or from well-known designers. Take Lavemi’s mini leather bifold wallet, for example.

The compact envelope design is crafted out of 100 percent leather with a pebbled finish, giving it a soft texture and delicate sophistication. Although the wallet is small, the storage options are mighty: The design features six card holders, a clear photo or license slot, a full-length bill section, and a zippered coin pocket. In addition to keeping your money and cards organized, the envelope wallet will keep your personal information secure with propriety blocking material to shield the RFID chips on your cards and IDs.

The style comes in two versions, a color-blocking envelope with zipper trim on the top flap or two-tone and solid options with a more traditional snap closure. If you like both styles equally, the even better news is that the wallet is priced as low as $14.49, like this slightly metallic champagne gold option, so you can pick up a few for the same price that one wallet could cost you other places. 

With nearly 1,000 reviews cumulating to an impressive 4.8-star rating, the small leather piece has reviewers shocked by the storage capacity. One five-star reviewer explains, “This wallet holds everything that my full size wallets held. All of my cards fit and several slots have 2-3 cards inside with plenty of room to slide them in or out. It is not bulky and it has no p

Loyal Dog Dies 15 Minutes After Owner Loses Eight-Year Cancer Battle

Loyal Dog Dies 15 Minutes After Owner Loses Eight-Year Cancer Battle

After Stuart Hutchison died from brain cancer, his beloved French bulldog Nero passed on just 15 minutes later.

Despite trying surgery and chemotherapy, Hutchison died on August 11, at age 25, after an eight-year battle with cancer, Mirror reported. Things took a devastating turn in June, when Hutchinson learned that his cancer had spread to most of his brain and to his bones and pelvis.

After trying to treat the spread with minimal success, Hutchison made the choice to move into his mother’s house to enjoy his final weeks in a comfortable space with his mom as his full-time caregiver.

During this time, Hutchinson’s wife, Danielle, was spending time at the house to be close to her husband. On the day Hutchinson died, Danielle’s father went to the home Danielle and Hutchinson shared to pick up glasses for Danielle, allowing her more time to stay by her husband’s side.

While he was picking up the glasses, Danielle’s father noticed that Nero appeared to be ill and decided to rush the dog to the emergency vet. Veterinarians discovered a rupture in Nero’s spine and the French bulldog died not long after arriving at the animal hospital and just minutes after his owner passed away.

“Stuart died about 1:15 p.m. that day, and Nero died roughly 15 minutes later,” Fiona Conaghan, Hutchison’s mother, told Mirror. “He had three dogs, but him and Nero were like one man and his dog.”

“Nero was the dog which was always with him,” she added, touching on the bond her son ad his dog shared.

While losing Hutchinson was expected, it was still “a shock and traumatic” when it actually happened and the added tragedy of Nero’s death has made the sad situation even more tragic.

“Danielle was heartbroken to have lost both of them, but she has been so strong,” Conaghan said.

Robert De Niro's Company Sues Employee for $6 Million Who Allegedly Binged Friends at Work

Robert De Niro's Company Sues Employee for $6 Million Who Allegedly Binged Friends at Work

Robert De Niro‘s Company, Canal Productions, has filed a $6 million lawsuit against a former employee who they allege binge-watched Netlfix on the job and embezzled money.

Chase Robinson — who was first hired as an assistant to De Niro in 2008 and was later promoted to “Vice President of Production & Finance” to ensure that Canal was not being used by employees for their own personal gain or expenses — has been accused of abusing her position to inappropriately use “her employer’s fund for her personal gain.”

Robinson didn’t immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Robinson allegedly ran up huge gratuities bills on the company American Express card. She also used millions of De Niro’s frequent flyer miles for personal trips, and submitted false information to get paid for 96 days of “unused” vacation time, for which she received $70,000, per the filing.

The suit, which was filed on Aug. 16, alleges that she spent $12,696.65 in unauthorized charges at Paola’s Restaurant over the course of two years, on top of $8,923.20 at Dean and Deluca and Whole Foods.

She also spent $32,000 on Ubers and taxis, according to the documents, and bought herself a $1,311.94 flower arrangement for her birthday.

The company also alleges that she “loafed during working hours” and spent “astronomical amounts of time” watching Netlix when she was supposed to be working.

During one four-day period in January, she allegedly watched 55 episodes of Friends. In another four-day period during March, Canal claims she watched 20 episodes of Arrested Development and 10 episodes of Schitt’s Creek.

According to the filing, Robinson was making an annual salary of $300,000 while working for Canal, and she “abruptly resigned” from her position via email on April 6, 2019.

In her email she “brushed off” any concerns the company had about her for “corporate sabotage” and even went on to write herself a recommendation later in June, which De Niro refuse

Hillary Clinton Slams Trump's 'Debunked' Claim That Google 'Manipulated' Election Votes

Hillary Clinton Slams Trump's 'Debunked' Claim That Google 'Manipulated' Election Votes

Hillary Clinton clapped back this week at President Donald Trump‘s baseless assertion on Twitter that Google engineered his significant popular vote defeat in the 2016 election.

“The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters,” the former secretary of state, 71, replied to Trump on Twitter Monday. “For context that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted.”

Trump, 73, has long pushed nonsense allegations of voter fraud, at one point even claiming that voters cast multiple ballots by returning to polling places over and over again in new outfits.

On Monday, he brought up the topic once again — this time to say that Google must have “manipulated” millions of votes for Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. He narrowly won the Electoral College but lost the popular vote by nearly three million.

“Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!” Trump tweeted, adding, “Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!”

The president did not identify or link to a specific report, though the one he’s apparently referring to was published in 2017 by psychologist Robert Epstein, who testified before Congress in July at a hearing called “Google and Censorship through Search Engines.”

As CNN notes, Epstein’s conclusion that Google could have helped sway millions of undecided voters into voting for Clinton re-emerged Monday morning on Fox Business, which is likely how it caught the eye of the president, an avowed viewer.

Clinton was quick to respond to Trump’s latest jab with one of her own that questioned the validity of Epstein’s report — and poked at Trump’s circle.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver Navigate a Devastating Divorce in Marriage Story Trailers

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver Navigate a Devastating Divorce in Marriage Story Trailers

Fans eagerly waiting for Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver‘s next film are in for a treat.

Netflix released not one, but two first-look trailers for its upcoming Marriage Story, starring Johansson, 34, and Driver, 35, as a couple taking stock of their relationship while going through a heartbreaking divorce.

And just like in every fight where there are two sides to every argument, the trailers offer mirror perspectives on the relationship, each narrated by one side of the couple.

Both trailers feature Driver and Johansson stating the things they love most about the other as scenes from their marriage and their life as parents to their little boy play.

“What I love about Nicole: She’s a great dancer, infectious,” Driver’s Charlie starts. “She’s a mother who plays — really plays. She gives great presents. She’s competitive. She knows when to push me and when to leave me alone.”

The second shows some of the same images as Johansson’s Nicole takes a turn saying what she loves about Charlie.

“He loves being a dad. It’s almost annoying how much he likes it,” Nicole starts. “He cries easily in movies. He’s very competitive. He’s very clear about what he wants. He’s a great dresser. Never looks embarrassing, which is hard for a man. He takes all of my moods steadily, he doesn’t make me feel bad about them. He rarely gets defeated, which I feel like I always do.”

Both trailers end with the same scenes: Driver and Johansson looking solemn in a courthouse before switching to the two sitting on opposite sides of a living room.

“I thought we should talk,” Johansson’s Nicole says.

“Okay,” Driver’s Charlie answers as the two look at each other in silence.

“I don’t know how to start,” Charlie finally says as the trailers ends.

The movie, directed by Noah Baumbach (Margot at the Wedding), also stars Laura Dern, Alan Alda and Ray Liotta.

Marriage Story, an Oscar hopeful, is set to hit Netflix and select theaters this fall.
