Curious About Natural Deodorants? These Are Our 12 Favorites

It seems like everyone we know these days is making the switch to natural deodorants, or at least wants to know more, and it's easy to see why.

An Easy Breakdown of How to Apply Individual False Lashes

False lashes are great, especially if you need a budget-friendly option for long, thicker lashes - and quick. But lash strips can make even the most expert beauty aficionado fall to their knees. If you've dabbled in faux eyelashes, you know that it takes practice to perfect. Mercury has to be out of retrograde. Winds have to be less than 15 mph. You have to be out of direct sunlight. (You get the gist.) It's an art! Whenever friends ask me to do their lashes or ask for suggestions on to apply t...
