Hey Kale, Your Closest Relative is Crunchier, Yummier and Even Healthier. Oh, and Apparently It's Cool Again - Some Cabbage Love

As Food and Wine magazine wrote this month - 'The Cabbage Craze is Officially 'Real'.

The Tiny Skin-Care Tweaks You Should Make When It's Cold Outside

Photo: Courtesy of HBO. We've heard the warning before: "Winter is coming." In fact, we heard it for about seven seasons of Game of Thrones. Still, not once during Jon Snow's defense against the White Walkers did we see him ready his skin for the inevitably harsh winds and icy climate past the Wall. Luckily, we're planning on being far more prepared this winter than Snow was.It's time to face the facts: The moment the seasons change — from a moderately crisp fall to brick-cold winter — your...

And like many others, we’ve been waiting to see what’s left of our home and community.The waiting sucks. It's been a nasty cocktail of regret (why didn’t I g...

28 Styles You Need To Learn If You're Transitioning To Natural Hair

But, as more and more new growth began to replace my straighter strands, I became concerned about not only the heat damage that might occur in the long run, but the fact that I was relying on somebody else to do all the work. So, I ...
