Everlane’s “Choose What You Pay Section” Just Got A Major Refresh

Hold on to your butts, friends. We just got wind that Everlane’s “Choose What You Pay” section has been quietly refreshed with some stylish new additions from their full-price section. (We spied covetable wardrobe staples like their high-waisted slim jeans and perfect-shaped denim jacket in the mix.) If that weren’t enough, many of the existing marked-down pieces have gotten even deeper price cuts — we’re talking Stretch Ponte Skinny Pants for less than $40.It’s hard to beat Everlane’s already ...

The James Bond Shower: A Shot of Cold Water for Health and Vitality

As a kid, I was a big James Bond fan. Saw all the movies and read all the books. One thing I noticed about the book version of James Bond was that every time he took a shower, he would start off with the water nice and hot, and then turn it down to cold for the last few minutes. Perhaps this little detail of Bond’s personal bathing regimen was a subtle way for Ian Fleming to illustrate Bond’s Scottish ancestry, as this type of shower is commonly known as a “Scottish Shower.” Who knows. Being a...

Bite Beauty San Francisco & Miami Amuse Bouche Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

San Francisco Bite Beauty San Francisco Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, neon coral-red with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered well to my lips with a smooth, even lay down of color. The texture was lightly creamy, dense without being heavy, and comfortable to apply and to wear. It wore nicely for five and a half hours, left a faint stain behind, and was hydrating over time.

Authenticity is Overrated: How Asian-Americans Use Food to Explore Their Identities

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 ...

Nothing Helped My Prewedding Stress Zits Until I Found These Acne Healing Dots

I woke up two days before my dream wedding with the skin of my nightmares. I didn't consider myself a "stressed-out" bride, but my face told a different story on the morning my fiancé and I made the drive from San Francisco to San Diego, CA. A long distance away from the safety of my dermatologist's office, I tried to ignore the cystic bumps growing under my skin. This was easier said than done, however, since the zits were conveniently located in the middle of my forehead and chin. Thankf...

San Francisco Tourists May Soon Have To Pay To Drive Down This Famous Street

San Francisco ’s Lombard Street is affectionately nicknamed Crooked Street, and for good reason. The winding road is flanked by beautiful landscaping and colorful homes, earning it a spot in many city guides and on many Instagram feeds (of course). While the street is a remarkable sight on foot, the full experience comes from driving down its steep hill — but that might soon come at a cost.Legislation proposed in the California state legislature earlier this week would implement a reservation ...
