    My high school guidance counselor once told me to fake it until I make it. That advice was immediately put to the test. The $300 bottle of perfume that had been on my radar for months was finally mine, sort of. The designer imposter version of it cost only $35 and smelled exactly the same. The scent was so distinct that everyone really thought I was wearing a fragrance that was clearly out of my price range. I ended up going back to the same shop and buying a knock off Gucci bag and some earrings to boot.

    California is the nationwide trendsetter in the ongoing saga of flame retardants in office furniture.
