Travel Is The Road To Transformation

In an age of connectivity, we have never been more disconnected. The next time you’re walking down the street, waiting for a flight, or sitting in a café, take a look around. Smart phones are glued to our hands, faces are buried in our smart phones.

Bath Towels 101: What to Know Before You Buy

There’s a riddle that goes like this: “What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries?” The answer is, of course, a towel. But recently, shopping online for towels for my new apartment, I found myself perplexed by the paradox. “The higher the surface density the more absorbent the towel,” read the description for the Ikea towels I was considering. But then: “A towel with a lower surface density dries faster.” I admit I had to read it more than twice to make sense of what that meant. How to decode...

I'm A Porn Star — & I Spend $8,790 A Year On My Beauty Routine

Makeup tends be heavy. Hair tends be luscious, just like the lips. Skin is largely free of not only wrinkles, but also scars, body hair, and bumps.As Leigh has worked her way through this industry, she has spent thousands and thousands of dol...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

Tourists line up at Roy's Peak

There is no such thing as a beautiful secret spot any longer. With the advent of Instagram influencers, “outing” (and ruining) cool locations on social media has become increasingly common.
