Elsie’s Fashion Challenge – Three Months In!

Hello friends! I’m here today to share an update on my 2019 fashion challenge, which was to buy only used clothing for one year. I’m in the middle of my third month now and happy to say I haven’t cheated even one time! I thought it would be really tough not to buy any new clothes, but it really hasn’t been. Sure, I’ve had a few temptations, but overall I’ve been shocked how easy it is to shop pre-owned. Since it’s winter and my personal busy season at work (I’m busting ass finishing things to pr...

Why you might want to start a subscription box business

We’re used to thinking of physical products as one-time rather than recurring purchases, so why might you want to start a subscription box business? Until recently, the idea of paying for something on a monthly or bi-monthly basis was reserved for services like electricity, TV, and phones. Subscription box businesses are trying to change that. Brands like Dollar Shave Club and Blue Apron have subscribers instead of one-time customers. They send products on a regular basis so that their customers...

Want to Improve Foot Traffic? Beautify Your Building Inside and Out

#sponsored Small businesses and freelancers rarely start with a physical store or an office that isn’t a co-working space. I’ve a friend who started his ribs business from his parents’ kitchen.

After months of networking and gaining visibility, he finally saved enough to open a physical store. His stor...

Low-Waste Alternatives to Makeup Remover Wipes

Every time I run out of makeup remover wipes, I get a sinking feeling. With all of my attempts to be more environmentally-friendly, it’s getting harder and harder to turn a blind eye to my favorite beauty habits and they waste they produce. Disposable wipes are so easy to replace with low-waste options, too. And with the rising awareness and popularity surrounding low waste beauty routines, the reusable options are becoming abundant.

The Windrose: 9 Ideas to Steal from a Bright Apartment Hotel in Savannah

Some might call it a rough start: When Kate and Ben Towill, the married design duo behind Basic Projects, bought the 1800s four-story building in Savannah’s historic market district three years ago, it smelled of stale beer from its days as a tired restaurant and nightclub. But Kate and Ben saw potential. “It was pretty rough looking,” says Kate. “But I remember how large it felt inside, with very tall ceilings and exposed brick walls.” Kate and Ben set forth transforming the historic space into...

Style Remake: Cozy Bedroom with Metallic & Faux Fur Accents

When I was a kid, I based the aesthetic dreams of my future on what I saw on TV sets, music videos, and MTV Cribs. Little did I know that, as a grown woman, I would divert my source of inspiration completely and obliviously… to stock photos. Once again, I have been utterly duped by a stock photo on Pinterest. I found a gorgeous, glamorous-yet-inviting bedroom that was decorated just enough to feel luxurious without looking too cluttered or garish. It was an ad for Joss & Main, and when I clicke...

Many of my friends have become atheists. I am in touch with my inner atheist. One of them said to me once, “Either God is everywhere or God is nowhere. I choose the latter.”Many years later I’ve come to the conclusion that they are both the same. It’s just l...

Amazon Prime members can choose a weekly delivery date with launch of ‘Amazon Day’

Amazon this morning launched a new delivery option for Prime members that will allow them to control when their orders arrive, Amazon Day. The option lets shoppers pick a day of the week to take delivery of their recent orders. The boxes arrive together on the selected Amazon Day in fewer boxes, the company says, which makes deliveries more predictable. The move clearly benefits Amazon by reducing the number of deliveries drivers have to make to the same address, while positioning the opti...

Best things to do in Columbus, Ohio

Cities on the coasts like San Francisco and New York City offer a cultured vibe that’s hard to match. But with the astronomical cost of living and ultra-competitive housing markets, simply surviving in a trendy urban center is increasingly difficult to afford. People looking for an innovative and entertaining place to live that won’t empty your bank account shouldn’t pigeonhole themselves along the Atlantic or Pacific, though. They should instead be looking toward the Midwest. More specifical...
