Someone once told me that on a subconscious level, our biggest fears do double duty as our most secret desires. I’m not sure whether that’s true (most things I fear are too terrible to imagine any positives coming from them), but it would make perfect sense in certain contexts of my life — especially when… READ MORE »

I have a short temper when faced with minor annoyances, but when it comes to big-picture problems like a major loss, betrayal, or simply having some seriously bad luck, I tend to shy away from anger through no active choice of my own.

I had never heard of Simple Sugars scrubs until a few weeks ago (how is that possible?), but most of the world knows the product through the entrepreneur-focused reality show “Shark Tank.” Creator and company founder Lani Lazzari was just eighteen-years-old when she appeared on the show in 2013 to seek out investors, and her business… READ MORE »

“Tattoo” is one of the more emotional songs on Hilary Duff’s new album Breathe In. Breathe Out., so she decided to take things up a notch by recording a stripped-down acoustic session in her own backyard, joined by a kickass guitarist who remains awkwardly nameless.

Last I heard, Hilary was living in Brooklyn, and if… READ MORE »
