Playing With Association – The Fine Line Between Toothpaste And Artistry

  Mint is so polarizing in olfactory expression because it’s so emotional (in the sense of associative) – there is such a strong link between mint’s traditional use in bathroom settings for teeth-cleaning and sanitizing that it is difficult to un-engage the mind in bathroom narratives, therefore killing the fantasies of sensuality and aspiration that often spearhead a perfume’s appeal.

3 Easy Ways You Can Remove Your Gel Manicure at Home

There are many reasons to love a gel manicure, but a few in particular stand out. For starters, you really can't beat the fact that they require little to no drying time, meaning that you don't have to spend hours after your nail salon visit being too afraid to use your hands out of fear that you'll ruin that glossy finish. Still, gel manicures can only last for so long, so when life gets hectic, it can be hard to find time to squeeze in a removal appointment before you resort to just peeling th...

I Only Washed My Hair With a Shampoo Bar For One Week, and I’ve Officially Converted

Over the last few years, I've been on a quest to make my daily life more eco-friendly. I compost, separate my recycling, and dutifully carry a reusable bag everywhere I go. The one thing I haven't quite mastered? An eco-friendly and sustainable beauty routine. Case in point: my haircare situation. As every hairstylist I've ever seen has informed me, I have fine hair, but a ton of it. That means it gets greasy much faster than I'd like, so I've always prioritized shampoos that really fight oil. ...

Five years ago, not even the most revered beauty editor could have anticipated the meteoric rise of chipped nail polish or french manicures in 2020, and yet - it's that element of the unexpected that makes a trip to the salon feel more like a Bear Grylls adventure. This Spring, the coolest nail color trends are no exception.

Schools are closed. Kids are home. What’s the long-term impact of that?

Sometime in February, it was clear that the US was headed toward crisis, and every day we don’t take major action would make the crisis geometrically worse. Suburban schools closed first. The last school districts to close are bigger cities, because they had to figure out how to get breakfast and lunch to the kids who depend on it . For homeless kids, and hungry kids, school is a home away from home.  Taking kids out of school is the silver lining of coronavirus. Coronavirus presents a snaps...

The Stun Setting

Lately I’ve been feeling like we’re living through a particular Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. No, not “Contagion” – that’s about a computer virus. Not “Thine Own Self” either, but that’s a good guess. I’m thinking of “The Ensigns of Command.” That’s the episode where Data, the android character, must convince a bunch of stubborn colonists that they need to immediately pack up and leave the colony they worked so hard to build. The human colonists must leave because thanks to...

Yep, This Is Actually How Often You Should Be Showering Right Now . . .

So, you're social distancing. (Or at least you should be.) That means venturing outside to get your hair done or working out at the gym is temporarily off the table, and when the most face-to-face contact you're getting with other human beings is via Google Hangout over spotty WiFi, it's easy to wonder: do I really need to shower as often as I used to? Basic hygiene principles aside, that's a fair question - although its answer largely depends on a number of factors. "Under normal circumstances,...

Rush Limbaugh’s guest host blames the gays for COVID-19 lockdown

Styen filled in for Limbaugh for the March 17 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show. During the broadcast, he made the ugly (and false) statement that San Francisco had gone on lockdown to prevent “all the gays dropping dead on the San Francisco mayor’s watch.” London Breed, Mayor of San Francisco, placed ...
