Arianna Huffington learned the hard way that “success” isn’t always what we think it is. The new-media pioneer and mother of two daughters has written a new book that explores well-being, wonder, and wisdom as critical to true success—especially for working women raising children.

Huffington spoke with us recently about her book, her daughters, and how to unplug.
J.Crew is marking the debut of its first collection with Paperless Post by giving away 200,000 Mother’s Day cards in stores from May 6th through May 11th.
Our collaboration with the ready-to-wear powerhouse will launch mid-month with more than 30 designs for unforgettable parties and everyday occasions alike. J.Crew for Paperless Post will be available to send online and on paper.

Next month, we’re throwing a celebration of delightful proportions in honor of all our design partners. Stay tuned for pictures from the party complete with photo booth gems and open bar shenanigans.
