These 17 Investment Pieces From Nordstrom's Winter Sale Will Never Get Old

It's here, the trustiest sale of the year! While Nordstrom's Winter Sale might not be the sexiest sale happening this week — that title is a toss-up between Lovehoney's Deal of the Day (NSFW!) and Mango's extra 20% off, on top of its crazy sale — but it's arguably the one most worthy of your hard-earned cash and internet surfing time. Because what the customer-pleasing Seattle-based department store lacks in intimate toys and fast fashion, it makes up for in its spades of reliable brands like H...

How Michael Jordan became a brand (even though he almost skipped the meeting with Nike)

What today seems like the no-brainer that should have enticed bids from every major athletic shoe brand should be viewed more accurately as a first-of-its-kind gamble that almost didn’t happen.

New York City Plans To Wipe Out Discrimination Based On Hair

This week, New York City will take the necessary — and overdue — step of codifying mistreatment based on hair texture or style as racially discriminatory, reports the New York Times. The law specifically ensures protection for Black New Yorkers, who are often targeted at work and in schools, from facing disciplinary actions based on hair. Black Americans have long experienced discrimination in employment, housing, and education because of how they choose to wear their hair.The new wording of th...

The first perfume of the Boucheron jewelry house had its premiere in 1988. Its floral-oriental fragrance with strong character became the symbol of a generation of women.

In 2019, a new, contemporary interpretation of this classic arrives on the market, called Boucheron Fleurs . This fragrant b...

Do You Feel Like There Isn’t Enough of You To Go Around?

We all have a lot of expectations to live up to. We’re supposed to keep a household running smoothly – and immaculately clean at the same time. We’re also cooks, housekeepers, household finance managers, launderers, counselors, childcare givers (and sometimes parent caregivers, too), chauffeurs, activity managers, employees or business owners…the list is endless. Somehow, we’re supposed to do all of this, look our best at all times, have perfectly behaved and well-groomed children, and nev...

How to Hardwire Your Happiness

If you’ve been reading/listening to AoM long enough, you likely know I describe myself as having a melancholic, Eeyore-like temperament. While I think those who know me would say I’m a generally friendly, good humored and hearted fella who has his stuff together, I also have a tendency to focus on the negative, think in worst-case-scenarios, and look at life with a jaded lens. In times of significant stress, my low-level negativity can turn into a full-on depressive episode . Even in or...

Beyoncé Challenged You To Eat A Plant-Based Diet — But Is She A Vegan?

The answer is no: Beyoncé isn’t a vegan.And no, Jay-Z isn’t either.The New York Times put an end to recent speculation with information straight from Bey and Jay’s personal trainer, Marco Borges: “Beyoncé eats ‘a plant-based’ — i.e. vegan — ‘breakfast daily’ and consumes no meat on Mondays. Jay-Z eats ‘two plant-based meals a day.’”So perhaps the best way to characterize the superstars is as part-time vegans (or rather, excuse me, part-time “plant-based” dieters). And “part-time” is key here, a...

Did You Hear About The $88 Off $100 at Sephora Deal?

88OFF was apparently a Sephora coupon code circulating around forums and social media that actually worked! What did it get you? $100 worth of makeup for $12! Yup! That’s right! Spend $100 and get $88 off your order at Sephora Canada (I don’t believe the code was available on the US website). News sources were quick to jump on this one when it popped up last week but I honestly didn’t hear a whisper about it! Maybe because it was a Canada thing. Well, chaos was sure to take place when you ha...

The Path To Success Is Not Perfect (or is it??)

I was listening to a Ted talk this morning and this soundbite caught my attention: The path to success is not perfect. I immediately thought about those Family Circus comics where a kid was supposed to go “straight home” and went all over the neighborhood, a few times, in anything but a straight line, before he got home. We have a plan of how our careers will go (mine was a pretty straight path to some executive corner office…. undergrad, MBA, and then a quick path up management to the executive...

Decades ago, ecstasy — yes, MDMA — was used in marriage counseling

For the first decade after it was synthesized, MDMA was used in individual and couples therapy.Many therapists spoke against the criminalization of MDMA in 1985 due to the drug's therapeutic potential.A revival has occurred in recent years, with the government allowing clinical trials to move forward. None Before the second "M" was affixed to "MDA," researchers spent decades searching for a utility for the mescaline derivative. Patented as "methylsafrylamin" in 1914 by Merck, the drug was shelv...
