Getting a Facial at the Heyday Skincare Spa – Tips for a First Timer

Before I had my first facial, I honestly had no clue what to expect. I’ve seen facials listed on every spa men I’ve ever been to, and while I do care about my skincare regimen, I honestly never wanted to choose the facial when at the spa. What would they say about my skincare routine? Would it hurt? Would it even help? Well, I let those worries and lack of information keep me from ever even trying a facial. That is until recently, when I was invited by Harrys to try their newest mens grooming p...

7 Highlighter Sticks To Try If You Love Glossier's Haloscope

When Glossier first launched in 2014, no one really cared about minimalism — at least, millennials weren't talking about it yet. Then, the straight-to-consumer beauty brand began to redefine what it meant to want a less-is-more look. And while Glossier fans love the all-purpose balm and tinted brow gel, it was the sweat-in-a-stick highlighter, Haloscope, that secured the first cult-like following for the brand.What about this highlighter stick is so special? What does it do that the hundreds up...

My Partner & I Make $165,000 A Year — & We Saved $65,000 To Buy A House

Nearly 10 years ago (!), I found myself in pretty much the same situation as the woman featured on this week's episode of Money Diaries: The Podcast: My fiancé, now husband, Ken, and I were trying to simultaneously plan a wedding and buy our first apartment in Brooklyn. It was stressful to say the least. And two years into being a mother who also holds down a full-time job, I still have to say that first-time home-buying mixed with wedding planning is more insane than raising an infant.I also d...

This Mom Went To Prison For Enrolling Her Son In A School Outside Her District

The college cheating scandal that has ensnared at least 50 people, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, has sparked a much needed conversation about privilege and money in the U.S. educational system. And while the scam has also produced lots of funny commentary due to the sheer ridiculousness of the lengths these parents went to get their kids into college (like photoshopping their kids' faces onto stock photos of athletes) and the level of privilege these people have (Lough...

You Won't Believe How Much Elizabeth Holmes Has Changed

Once upon a time, Elizabeth Holmes was America's youngest self-made female billionaire and the head of biotech company Theranos, which promised new blood-testing procedures that would revolutionize health care. But, beginning in 2015, the cracks in Holmes' tech empire and veneer of prestige started to show, with reports trickling out that the level of technology she championed was "exaggerated" at best. In 2018, Holmes was formally indicted on charges of fraud, and now faces upwards of 20 years...

This $8 Cleanser Convinced Me To Break Up With Makeup Wipes

After braving my pubescent years with a face full of hormonal acne (which then left me with a face full of dark spots) and a T-zone so greasy you could make a grilled cheese on my forehead, I didn't think it was even possible for me to have dry skin. But here I am, waking up with dry patches around my mouth, peeling skin on my nose, and a forehead that's more sandpaper-y than slick.A far cry from my oily teenage years, moisture has become the single most important part of my skin-care routine. ...

Here’s John Steinbeck Asking Marilyn Monroe for Her Autograph (1955)

When asking a celebrity for a special favor, it helps to be a bit of a celebrity yourself. As Keith Ferrell details in his biography, John Steinbeck: The Voice of the Land, the Nobel laureate had little patience for autograph seekers, pushy young writers seeking help getting published, and “people who never read books but enjoyed meeting authors.” The shoe went on the other foot when Mrs. Steinbeck let slip to her nephew that Uncle John had met the boy’s movie star crush, Marilyn Monroe. Sudden...

9 Nail-Polish Colors That Are Basically Spring Break In A Bottle

Ah, spring break. Even if you've been out of school since 2011, there's something universally nostalgic about the idea of taking a full ten days off of real life to jet off somewhere warm and sunny with your friends. The realities of 2019 spring break may be less than glamorous — maybe you're carpooling home to see mom and dad, or stuck somewhere frigid — but you can still feel the vibes with a fresh mani-pedi.Before polish indecision sets in and you reach for classic black, consider one of the...
