12 Watercolor Tattoos You'll Want To Get For Summer

When J.Lo was asked to give her thoughts on her ex Ben Affleck’s vibrant phoenix back tattoo — besides leading with "Awful!" — she gave a piece of advice: “His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful. You know what I mean? They should be cooler."Many people agree that body ink looks best when limited to a simple palette of black, gray, and other neutrals. However, there's one tattoo trend that might just change that misconception. Hugely popular in Japan and South Kor...

Luckily, you can have both — the richness of your natural brunette with a sunny, almost tanned glow to it — when you go to your colorist with the two magic words: brunette balayage.The term "balayage" may be best associated with blonde highlights, but it's undeniably the best coloring technique to take your hair to a sun-kissed color regardless of your b...

Spike Lee Directed Crooklyn — Black Women Brought It To Life

One of my most vivid memories from my childhood is the night in 1994 when I first saw Spike Lee’s Crooklyn with my family at the drive-in theater near our house. I watched my parents search for the radio station playing the movie audio as my older sister and I sat in the backseat cuddled up with blankets and pillows.That night I met Troy Carmichael, a rough and tumble nine-year-old tomboy who could both jump double dutch and outrun the boys on the block, who rocked beautiful braids and beads in...

Like most Americans, Mackenzie Fegan grew up eating her weight in Campbell’s chicken noodle soup. But there was a twist, courtesy of her mother, who had moved from China as a child.“She would stir an egg into it with chopsticks and make a sort of egg drop soup mashup,” recalls the Brooklyn-based food writer, whose family opened the San Francisco institution Henry’s Hunan, once described by the New Yorker as the finest Chinese restaurant in the United States.But the best seller at Henry’s Hunan ...

Sincerely Tommy Owner, Kai Avent deLeon Shares Her Journey To Motherhood

I never gave childbirth a lot of thought until I got pregnant in 2018. I can honestly say I was not well versed on what it meant to be pregnant and give birth outside of what mainstream media shows us. When it comes to diet and wellness, I have a pretty holistic lifestyle, so I was attracted to the idea of working with a doula through my pregnancy journey and giving birth at home. Going into this pregnancy, I experienced some anxiety after suffering two losses: a miscarriage in February 2017, f...

I Got A $20 Prenup — & It Helped Me Have Some Hard Conversations About Money

It was a hot Sunday in June, and we were lazily sitting in our tiny Brooklyn apartment, hanging out with the dog, and chatting about everything and nothing — the neighborhood, the strange guy at work, and where we’d be living the following year. Neither of us had *planned* to talk about marriage, but before we knew it the conversation took a pretty serious turn.Before I keep going with this story, let me give you some context. Dalmar and I had been dating for 10 years and living together for 2 ...

Gifts For Moms Who Love Food As Much As We Do

Mother's Day and food go hand-in-hand. Blame the tradition of breakfast in bed (an activity that, more often that not, just gives the gift of a dirty kitchen).

Or, on the flip side, maybe borderline platinum is what you've been dying to try, and you just need a little inspiration to convince you to take the plunge at your next appointment.So, to help get you to your version ...

9 Women On Why They Decided To Pay For Their Engagement Rings

Buying an engagement ring is often the first big financial decision a couple makes together. These days, it's pretty typical for couples to shop for rings well ahead of the proposal with the proposee choosing the ring and knowing the cost. But who should pay for that ring? Tradition stands that it's the man who pays and does the proposing (of course, this goes out the window in same-sex relationships), but as more women out-earn their partners, it seems only natural that they would chip in (or ...
