4 People From Around The World On Keeping Up With KonMari Months Later

On January 1, Marie Kondo 's now-infamous home makeover show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, dropped on Netflix. Since then, our homes and our lives have not been the same. We, along with pretty much everyone we know, have cleaned, purged, sorted, folded, and even told our remaining belongings how very thankful we are for them. But as much as we love KonMari method, it can be a little hard to keep up with after, say, three decades of hoarding all the beauty products you can get your hands on, or ...

Clean Cleaning: How Eco-Friendly Companies Are Rebranding Your Least Favorite Chore

It’s become apparent that sooner or later, every market will be made over in the millennial image. What started with brands like Glossier and Warby Parker has now grown to include direct-to-consumer toilet paper and consciously-crafted olive oil with packaging so hip it could have been designed by Rachel Comey. Now, the cleaning supply industry is being similarly disrupted, with so many new brands touting alternatives to traditional cleaners that aren’t just eco-friendly, but are also elevated,...

9 April Fools' Pranks We Wish Were Real — & Some We Don't

Today is no ordinary groan-inducing Monday, it's also April 1 — a.k.a., "jokes on you," day. We can choose to grumble our way through April Fools, OR we can sip the onslaught of pranks down as smoothly as that second double-espresso shot. While we aren't having any of those inane, "free bagels in the break-room," gags, we are here for the more creatively-involved subterfuge carried out annually by a slew of mainstream brands (that sometimes offer real deals).Ahead we've lined up 9 of these bril...

Apartment Gardening Is The Latest Trend In House Plants — But What Is It?

All the plants in said plant collection seem to be doing pretty well, and now you're wondering, what's next? I have two words for you: Apartment. Gardening.What, you may be wondering, is apartment gardening?

Where To Buy Affordable Bridesmaids Dresses When Matchy-Matchy Isn't By Choice

There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to plunk down some hard-earned cash on a dress that she just isn't feeling. We’ve all been there: your best friend, sister, cousin, or — awkwardly — the college roommate with whom you’re no longer super-close with is having a great big wedding, and you’re asked to be in a bridal party the size of a small soccer team. And hey, that’s awesome. Those who can and want to splash out, should. With a 250-person guest list, the affair in question is...

Two Experts Answer Every Question You've Ever Had About Tiny Homes

Seemingly everyone loves looking at pictures of tiny homes on the internet, and it's also not uncommon for many of us to daydream about parting with our worldly possessions (and monthly rent check) in favor of the simpler life they provide. But how much do those of us residing in average-sized homes really know about tiny home life? For example: What kind of customizations can you make? Where do you store the belongings you end up hanging onto? And, uh, how the hell do you have sex in one?We po...

Every new season brings with it the promise of a wardrobe overhaul, and spring in particular has the ability to whip us into a frenzy. First, we Marie Kondo 'd (yep, she's a verb now). Into storage went the oversized sweaters, Carhartt beanies, and turtlenecks that kept us warm all winter as we scurried into the office, sun barely risen, our bodies hunched against the cold.

The One Beauty Product Jennifer Garner Gave Up During Her Marie Kondo Purge

A look back at old photos often leaves us wondering: What were we thinking? Thank goodness portrait mode wasn't around when we were going through that over-plucked brow phase or when pink hair streaks were a thing. Luckily, the majority of our beauty regrets are hidden deep in our mothers' old photo albums. And if you were to get your hands on Jennifer Garner's old family pictures, you'd see a bright-eyed teen burnt to a crisp after hours of sailing on her dad's boat.She and her siblings did w...

Mark International Women's Day With One Of These Feminist Tees

International Women's Day is this Friday, March 8th, and has been celebrated in some capacity for over a century. (Way too short of a time, if you ask us.) Here in the U.S., suffragettes celebrated a National Women's Day from 1908 until 1913. Across the Atlantic, over one million feminists (men and women alike) from a cluster of Eastern European nations publicly demonstrated for women's rights on March 19th, 1911.The United Nations observed it for the first time in 1975, and 2001 saw the launch...

7 Bras So Comfortable, You’ll Forget You’re Even Wearing ’Em

Bras are pretty much the BFFs of our everyday wardrobes. Think about it: They offer the kind of daily support ( wink, wink) that can only be matched by a particularly lit group chat — and good thing, because there's nothing better than having a trusted team you know you can count on. That's why, when we're on the lookout for new lingerie, we're pretty serious about adding only the cream of the crop to our undergarment arsenal.So where does one start when looking for the very best bra?
