Rebecca Minkoff has some advice for e-commerce companies right now

When Rebecca Minkoff first moved to New York City, the then-18-year-old was making $4.75 an hour. “I just kept working for this designer and someone was telling me what to do every day. I just didn’t like that. And I thought if I’m going to work as hard, it’s going to be for myself and I want to call my own shots,” she said. “I didn’t want to be told what to do, frankly.” Self-employment for Minkoff turned out just fine; in 2001, she redesigned the iconic “I Love New York” shirt and it appear...

Like Walking Through a Sonnet: A Serene East Sussex Barn by Cassandra Ellis

I often return to the piece my colleague Alexa wrote on New Zealand-born, London-based designer Cassandra Ellis. In it, Cassandra offers a poetic approach to interiors and the spaces in which we live. Your place, she told Alexa at the time, is “a visual and very personal manifestation of who you are… Your home should be your story teller—the weaver of the red thread and a marker of you and yours.” It’s a sentiment that’s all the more fitting now that so many of us find ourselves indoors, confine...

Josh Gad, Jake Johnson & Gal Gadot Try to Make Coronavirus Quarantine a Little More Tolerable

It’s going to be a rough couple months as everyone in the United States (hopefully) spends as much time at home as possible. Cities like Los Angeles are getting a little more strict about keeping people at home in order to slow the spread of coronavirus around the country, and it’s only a matter of time before everyone else follows suit. Thankfully, even though production is shut down on movies and TV right now, some celebrities are taking the time to make self-quarantine and social distancing ...

Charities aiding hospitality workers

For many people around the country, this COVID-19 era is dark times. Restaurants and bars nationwide have laid off hourly employees. Hotels, airlines, buses, and other travel-related fields are surely not far behind. And only time will tell how far-reaching this month’s economic consequences may be. Organizations all over the nation are trying to help people who have lost their jobs or are otherwise struggling financially, and all are accepting donations. That means you, assuming you’re cash...

Queer events you can attend online

As the coronavirus pandemic alters daily life, queer events around the world are getting canceled, but there’s one event COVID-19 can’t touch: Couchella. That’s right — the hottest ticket in town is the house-party-of-one you’re hosting from your living room. Proximity doesn’t preclude us from gathering in the digital age. While it’s necessary to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the coronavirus, a social recession doesn’t need to be the byproduct of staying safe. Whether you ...

What to Do If You F*cking Hate Your New Haircut

It's the worst-case scenario we all know too well: after heading into a hair salon armed with plenty of haircut inspiration from Instagram, you sit through an appointment. Finally, the stylist spins your swivel chair around so that you can see your new look in the mirror, and . . . you hate it. We've been there. The good news is that you don't (and shouldn't) have to pretend to love your hair when you don't. In need of some emergency assistance? No matter the specific haircut conundrum you may b...

Notable pets, like Jiff Pom and Doug the Pug, have become celebrities and well-known stars through content their owners post on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube.

Following allegations and of fraud and sexual misconduct against RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Sherry Pie—real name Joey Gugliemelli, 27—as well as his apparent admission of guilt and subsequent disqualification from the reality show competition, questions remain as to how long and how widespread Gugliemelli’s con game reached.

Influencer-pet owners reveal what it's like to keep the legacy alive after Lil Bub and other viral animals died

Notable pets, like Jiff Pom and Doug the Pug, have become celebrities and well-known stars through content their owners post on Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. However, pets have significantly shorter life spans than everyday influencers, which raises a unique issue about what owners do with these accounts after their pets' deaths. Owners who spoke with Business Insider had a variety of responses: Some continue to post photos for the fans, others bring in another animal to carry on the account...

Democrats Left Joe Biden for Dead. Then They Decided He Was Their Savior

It’s a common refrain in electoral politics that Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line. But that axiom appears to have been dispensed with on Tuesday night, when several states voted for the candidate they and their party leaders best felt could do the one task they’re desperate for come November: beat Donald Trump. Former Vice President Joe Biden racked up a series of dramatic wins on Super Tuesday, starting with Virginia and sweeping through several other states, including Alabam...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Facebook Videos of Her Trip to Standing Rock Reveal Her Political Awakening

Almost everyone who came to Standing Rock repeated the same legend. Someone, maybe Crazy Horse, had made a prophecy a long time ago—probably in the late 1870s—about the looming destruction of the planet. The “who” and “when” parts of the story were always fuzzy, but the prophecy was always the same: the “black snake” of darkness and discord was going to infect the land, seeping into the fires and air and water, spreading conflict and violence, and threatening the reciprocal relationship bet...

An Artist Tricks Google Maps Into Creating a Virtual Traffic Jam, Using a Little Red Wagon & 99 Smartphones

Sometimes the miraculous time-saving conveniences we’ve come to depend on can have the opposite effect, as artist Simon Wickert recently demonstrated, ambling about the streets of Berlin at a Huck Finn-ish pace, towing a squeaky-wheeled red wagon loaded with 99 secondhand smartphones. Each phone had a SIM card, and all were running the Google Maps app. The result? A near-instantaneous "virtual traffic jam” on Google Maps, even though bicyclists seem to vastly outnumber motorists alon...

The "Mona Cut" Is the Angled Bob Haircut Trend Taking Over Your Instagram Feed

I can always count on my Instagram feed to help me stumble upon a hair trend or moment that stops me dead in my tracks and often leads me down a rabbit hole. First it was the knotless box braids that practically took over last year, and now it's the geometric curly bob haircut that may or may not just inspire my next trip to the salon. The style in question, also known as the "Mona Cut," is somewhat of a signature of New York City-based stylist Mona Baltazar. Baltazar has become well-known on s...

How Deleting Instagram for 30 Days Saved my Sanity

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - By now, it’s no surprise that 2019 was a pretty rough year for me personally. It was exacerbated by a difficult breakup at the end of the year, some financial problems, and a general malaise from all the news of the world. By the time December 1st rolled around, I had pretty much checked out for the year—unable and unwilling to do much work, and just generally ~ tired. Every little thing was affecting my mood;...
