Pie Wars - Pumpkin or Squash?

Tomato tomahto? With squash and pumpkin, it's much worse than that timeless debate. Without even daring to step into the omnipresent 'Pumpkin Spice' arena (I wouldnt dare), this post does demonstrate how we humans sometime just get carryied away with perception and marketing.My point here is this: There is no such thing as pumpkin pie.It's all Squash. Seems like even brand marketers can't make up their mind. Or they feel that this option is the safest route. Sort of, because there is s...

Not enough time? 3 Impromptu Ways to see your Girlfriends

I met my girlfriends for Happy Hour tonight. We haven’t seen each other for too long and while we talk about getting together more, it is really hard to do when we all have jobs, lives, schedules that completely fill our lives almost 24/7. (Can you relate?) We decided, over our second glass of wine and countless shared updates and laughs, that we HAVE to get together more often. HAVE to. While we’d love to be on a schedule of making time for each other every week or every other week, or even on...

My Face Has Never Felt Cleaner Than After I Tried This New Cleansing Duo

When I was growing up, all I wanted was to be squeaky clean. I shampooed my hair until I could hear the strands between my fingers, and I washed my face until my cheeks sounded like a squeegee on a shower door. Years later, I've found a product that replicates that feeling - sans the drying ingredients I was likely slathering onto my body each day. The Cleansing Duo ($68) is the first and only (so far) product from Then I Met You, a new line by Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho. After years of c...
