The One Product Every Eyeliner Novice Should Be Using

Eyeliner is wonderful — there's nothing like a bold graphic line or subtle cat-eye flick to make any look pop — but applying eyeliner is a different story altogether. Unless you've mastered the craft (and more power to you), drawing lines on the lids can get dicey, a struggle that ends with you looking like you fell asleep with a Sharpie in your hand. But what if we told you that there are options out there that are actually ideal for beginners... and you might even have had them in your makeup...

Marie Kondo’ing my kitchen: What a food writer learned from a total pantry re-org with a food-waste expert

The Freshest Home Buys From Target's Winter Refresh Sale

It's a common misconception that spring is the main season tied to at-home tidying.

The Game-Changing Launches That'll Make 2019 Your Best Hair Year Yet

Every year we make a bunch of resolutions that we barely never stick to. In January, we set out on a mission to Marie Kondo the crap out of our apartment, save money, and cut back on sugar. But by the time the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday hits, we're splurging on new ASOS gear that just so happens to re-clutter said apartment. And, well, Trader Joe's new pancake bread threw the whole no-sugar thing out of the window.But there's one resolution we always plan on — and actually stick to — and ...

Marie Kondo Has A Reasonable Response To Your Reasonable Criticisms

It’s rare, even among celebrities and mega-influencers, that a person manages to carve out a niche so well-defined that their name becomes a symbol of their singular ideology. Think Gwyneth Paltrow, Sophia Amoruso, or unfortunate as it is, Donald Trump. Perhaps Marie Kondo isn’t a household name of that magnitude, but she certainly belongs on the same list. Since releasing her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, in 2012, the Japanese org...

10 Creative Ways to Save Money in 2019

I don’t know about you, but money has been on my mind a lot recently. Probably because I’m anxiously awaiting several end-of-year payments from work I did last year, and also the fact that it’s the NEW YEAR and I’ve got to start planning for the future…I guess. As a freelancer & business owner, I’m always a little anxious about my fluctuating income. And with the volatile market the past month, my future is increasingly…worrisome.

These End-Of-Year Sales Will Turn Your Home Into A Cozy Hibernation Station

December's holiday festivities are over and we're now entering true winter — a time we like to call, "hibernation season." From January until March we hunker down at home in attempts to not only avoid frigid outdoor temps, but also to stick to our most extreme New Year's resolutions (a.k.a. eating out less, cooking in more, etc., etc.). So, while we gear up to lock down at home for the three months ahead, we may as well give our safe spaces a winter-refresh.Creating the coziest possible hiberna...

We Asked 6 Highly Organized People How To Stay Neat & Tidy All Year Long

If Thanksgiving is a holiday that centers on being thankful for what you have, then the new year is a celebration of half-assed attempts to acquire whatever it is that you don't. Hence why phrases like "getting organized" and "de-cluttering" tend to get tossed around a lot this time of year, right alongside similar sentiments about exercising more, "figuring your career out" (whatever that means), and not texting your scummy ex-boyfriend back anymore. It's all very festive, isn't it?But while i...

How To Become One Of Those People Who Likes Exercise

When many of us think about things that bring us "joy," we think about sleep, puppies, chocolate, Netflix, or Marie Kondo’s viral organizing method — not necessarily exercise. Exercise usually makes us think about working out, which makes us think about planks, mean trainers, sweat, sore muscles, smelly gyms, and people grunting at nobody in particular in the weight room.It’s not your fault if this is how you currently feel about exercise. If you grew up in the era of diet culture, fitness trac...

I Spent 24 Hours In A Tiny Home & It Made Me Realize How High Maintenance I Am

For all we’ve read and watched and heard about tiny homes, no one has discussed the business of getting ready inside one. By “getting ready,” I mean not just the basic concerns of personal hygiene, but the whole production of makeup application, hair styling, and ensemble selection — arguably the most enjoyable part of any social engagement. And also something that is decidedly not easy to do in 170 square feet of space.I came to this realization while straddling a toilet during my day-long sta...
