The Wigs & Extensions Celebrity Hairstylists Actually Use

We can't be the only ones who saw Solange on the cover of When I Get Home and thought, I want her hair.

But recently, we realized it's easy to get all the looks we love IRL, because the celebrity secret to amazing hair — which is not so secret, really — is weave. We're talking bundles and bundles of e...

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: with Pirates of the Caribbean being rebooted, it’s time to note that this series is not all about a single actor or character.) In the year of our dark lord Cthulhu 2018, the only true zombies are movie franchises. No matter how steep the diminishing box office returns, no matter how loudly we collectively groan when another installment is announced, sequel a...

Whales & Sails Throw

When he was a child, Edward Juan's father sailed all the way from the shores of East India to the Red Sea. Captivated by that great ocean adventure, Edward designed this nautical throw. Its illustrations tell a story: whales and fish swimming beneath boats traveling to faraway lands. It's also the coziest. Woven from the threads of recycled shirts, it's like wrapping your whole body in your favorite worn-in tee. It has a weight, too: the kind you want to snuggle into and never want to snuggle ou...

We’re Losing A Friend, A Part of Our Family

Malnutrition so ravaged his little mind that the seizures began. His mother -- out of food and out of options, but full of love -- wrapped him in a blanket and kissed him one last time. She saved his life. She placed him outside a police station and waited. She hoped. Maybe she even prayed to one or many gods -- that her boy would be found and loved, fed and healed. And he is. Today, he's my son. My family and I in 2013. We adopted our son Sambhaji from India five years ago. He eats Cheerio...
