Are laptops going out of fashion? When it comes to entertainment, the answer might be yes. According to a new study, as a second screen option, more people use tablets to watch TV shows than computers, with 15 percent of full-length TV show watching happening on a tablet vs. a laptop.
Despite the smaller screen size of tablets, users spend 2.4 hours a day on average on entertainment. This is, in part, thanks to the rise of cable and satellite TV apps, and those like Netflix and AirPlay. Not to mention, they're a lot easier to handle while chilling on the couch.

Frans filmed his now 12-year-old daughter, Lotte, weekly from her birth to early adolescence and edited together the videos for a time-lapse story of her life. From the moments stitched together in the film, we watch as Lotte grows from a baby cooing at the camera to a cranky toddler, to an elementary school student losing her baby teeth, and to a preteen chatting endlessly for the camera.
Watch the video below for home videos at their finest.
The saying goes that we're all made of stardust, and the Constellations Collection may very well have been cut straight from the heavenly bodies that line our night sky.

With earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings, there's a little something for everyone. Check out a few more images of the collection in the gallery!
