Zappos Roundup: Dresses and Boots

In my experience, the Zappos online shipping experience cannot be beat which is why they made my list of highlights for 2018 — again! All shipping is free in the US, and it’s FAST. I’ve ordered something at night and received it the next day with no extra charge. Items are well packed, and the boxes are robust (an important factor when packages stand out in the rain here in Seattle). Zappos honours their return policy and refunds are quick. They’ll accept a return a year later, and listen to you...

Maneckji Bhumgara: The Indian bowler who took American cricket by storm in the 1900s

Southern California discovered cricket in the late 19th century, two centuries after the sport reached American shores, but the region lost little time in taking to the game with enthusiasm. 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...

8 Reasons To Implement HR Software System

Traditionally, HR departments had an air of mystique about them. Employees knew that HR professionals were responsible for “hiring and firing” workers, but seldom had any direct contact with HR staff. However, 21st-century HR professionals appreciate the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with employees at every level of an organization. A collaborative approach creates a strong company culture an...

Dual scale tape measures/Gmail tips/Papier

Dual scale tape measures In my ongoing campaign to make myself literate in metric (used everywhere in the world except the US), as much as possible I try to measure only in metric. I got a Komelon dual scale measuring tape (both metric and inches on one side) and after a month or so, I can think in metric. I really like Komelon measuring tapes because they are inexpensive but high quality. They have four in different sizes in dual scale from 3.5m/12ft for only $5, to a 9m/30ft for $8.50. The 9-m...

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask Review & Swatches

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask ($45) is a new cream sleeping mask that contains avocados and honey which acts as an overnight mask to address drier skin, dullness, and uneven skin texture as well as loss of firmness. What the hell is a sleeping pack or sleeping mask anyway? Sleeping masks are pretty common in Korean and Japanese skincare routines and for the past two years have become popular here in the US as well. I always find them rather strange simply because they remind me of a he...

Freud versus Jung: a bitter feud over the meaning of sex

On 27 February 1907, at Berggasse 19 in Vienna, Sigmund Freud fell in love. The object of his affection was Carl Gustav Jung: 19 years younger than Freud, the young psychiatrist was already the clinical director of the prestigious Burghölzli Hospital and a professor at the University of Zurich. Jung had gained international recognition for his invention of the word-association test, and his practice was renowned for its gentle incisiveness. But when Jung read Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams...

Depression, Health, Boredom, Interesting People, and Self-Esteem

I remember my first encounters with the self-improvement industry when I was younger. In many areas of the United States, people look at self-improvement as something that is absolutely crazy. That is how the people around me viewed it when I was growing up. When I think about self-improvement, however, I think about people doing things like: …trying to improve their mood and level of happiness …trying to improve their health …trying to become interested in new things …trying to meet other inte...

Why exercise alone won’t save us

Sedentary lifestyles are killing us – we need to build activity into our everyday lives, not just leave it for the gym. By Vybarr Cregan-ReidThis is the time of year when trainers are mined from under beds and gym kits are disinterred from the bottom drawer. Google searches relating to physical fitness peak in January. Many people even trawl the web to find out about “desk exercises” and “workouts on the go” in case they are too busy to use their new gym memberships.Our relationship with exercis...

Where To Buy Well-Made Lingerie For Under $100

We can't be the only ones who scratch our heads at the insane prices lingerie can go for. While we'll be the first to point out that luxury lingerie deserves admiration for its intricate designs and delicate fabrics, purchasing a pair of panties at a cost equivalent to a designer dress seems mind boggling. Dressing up — or down depending on how you see it — shouldn't involve also stripping your bank account in the process. And if we're digging deep into the intent behind shopping for lingerie i...

What I Miss About Berlin When I’m Abroad

Every time I spent a longer period of time abroad, staying in big cities always make me aware of what I appreciate the most about life in Berlin. Granted, it is exciting to roam through the restless streets of Bangkok or indulge in some ice cream while watching the sky go up in flames at sunset hour in LA, but never would I trade in Berlin for any other city in the world. Maybe this feeling can be blamed on the fact that I grew up here, but I believe that if you fell for Berlin once, you will st...
