These Fancy Heels Are The Finishing Touch Your Valentine's Day Look Needs

Unlike fancy purses or a trendy pair of mismatched earrings, shoes are all about practicality. They protect you from the elements, weather-related and otherwise (we're looking at you, public transit!). And for the most part, we play by the rules, choosing sneakers that double as therapy shoes and chunky boots that would be appropriate for a construction site. But there are a few occasions here and there that call for a variety of shoe that's a little less utilitarian and a little more fun — lik...

According to Tinder, This Is What Valentine's Day Smells Like

The freedom-inspired, soy-based candle is perfect for a night of self-care with its soothing blend of eucalyptus, sandalwood, amber, and citrus notes that transports you to a sunny day at the beach. See the relaxing candle a...

Let's Talk About Sex, Baby: Every Trick You Need To Seduce Someone With A Playlist

A woman goes home with a man. She looks around his bachelor pad, taking in his wall art: Klimt, Lichtenstein, and an Arcade Fire concert poster — clearly, he contains multitudes. While she's making the rounds of his black-leathered pad, he slips over to his record player (no matter what year it is, he has a record player, because he is “smooth”) and drops that needle. The dulcet sounds of Lana Del Rey’s “Cherry” start to pipe through the apartment. Or maybe it's Chet Baker’s “I Fall In Love Too...

Business Innovations of the Future

As a futurist, I often get asked to predict the business trends that organizations can afford to ignore, because, while they generate a lot of buzz, they are also likely to fizzle out. On the other hand, we must also pay attention to  business innovations  that are gathering such rapid strength that adoption is now essential. Let's look at a few. Blockchain A  blockchain  is a data structure that builds a digital ledger of transactions and shares it among a distributed network of computers...

Podcast #479: Becoming a Digital Minimalist

Practicing minimalism with your possessions has been a trend for the past decade, and it can be a worthy practice, as long as you use it as a means to greater efficacy outside your personal domain, rather than just an end in itself. But there’s arguably a minimalism practice that’s even more effective in achieving that greater efficacy: digital minimalism. My guest has written the definitive guide to the philosophy and tactics behind digital minimalism. His name is Cal Newport and this is his...

This Nail Brand Is Donating Money to the Ripped-Off Fyre Fest Bahamian Workers

In 2017, "business man" Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule teamed up to create what was supposed to be a luxurious Bahamian music festival called Fyre Festival, that ended up being a severe failure with tents and cold cheese sandwiches. In the last month, both Hulu and Netflix have both come out with documentaries on the now legendary disaster, and it's coming to light that many of the Bahamian workers that were hired by McFarland were not paid. The people behind nail brand Digits are just as d...

Cardi B's Makeup For the Pepsi Super Bowl Commercial Was Created With These Palettes

Cardi B, without fail, manages to steal every show with a flip of her multicolored hair and snap of her lavishly manicured fingertips. This time, that show was the Super Bowl.

Why Are So Many White Women Suddenly Wearing So Much Gold Jewelry?

There is a scene in Sex and the City I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Miranda Hobbs, Carrie Bradshaw’s very dependable and sensible friend, tried to help Carrie’s boyfriend at the time, everyone’s favorite nice guy who finished last Aidan, pick out an engagement ring. Carrie hated the ring. She hated it so much she threw up when she saw it. Dramatic, yes, but she couldn’t understand how the man she could potentially become betrothed to would buy her a gold ring. “But you wear gold,” Mir...
