The cricketing season began every summer in May. Several counties—including Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Diego, and San Francisco (in mid-California)—had their own leagues. Practice matches between league teams would kick off the season and near its end, a combined Los Angeles team would take on Santa Mo...

Motivation Over Discipline

There’s a popular maxim in personal development circles that goes: “F**k motivation. It’s fickle and unreliable and isn’t worth your time. Better to cultivate discipline.” Everywhere you look these days, people are exalting the sentiment behind this mantra; they’re down on motivation and high on discipline. Your Instagram feed is probably full of “influencers” shouting at you to get disciplined. Discipline, discipline, discipline! We used to beat the discipline drum ourselves. In fact, we were...

"Negative Space" Hair Is the Coolest Winter Color Technique Every London It Girl Is Wearing

With art, manicures, and eye makeup, negative space - the area that surrounds an object or color - is the key to creating a balanced three-dimensional effect unlike anything else. Now, the technique is making its way to hair color, and we have a feeling it's going to be everywhere come 2019. But what is it, exactly?
