Dear Abnormally Long Chin Hair,
We’ve been intimately acquainted since I first noticed you my sophomore year of high school. I looked in the mirror one day before school and was horrified to find a thick whisker protruding from my chin. I might have cried.
Growing up, I’d watched my mom curse her Mediterranean genes as she plucked the dark hairs from around her mouth, and I’d seen similar whiskers dotted along the jawline of my 90-year-old great grandmother as she gnawed on Parmesan rinds in her favorite recliner by the fireplace.

Pi is one of the sexiest math concepts in the game, because it’s huge (recent calculations have mapped it out to 5 trillion digits) and poetic and mysterious. My friends and I have been celebrating this sacred holiday for the past few years. Want to honor the almighty pi? Here are some ways to get in on the fun… Keep reading »

One of the most important aspects of goal-setting is writing them down, but I think it’s even better to go a step further–turn your goals into pretty pictures, interactive lists, and tactile objects and you’ll be much more motivated to make them happen. Here are five simple and crafty ways to help organize, envision, and manifest all your goals, from your daily to-do list to your biggest dreams in life…
The main character in The Hunger Games is a teenage girl named Katniss Everdeen. She has a fiery personality, and, thanks to a creative stylist, a fiery wardrobe to match.

Marc Jacobs attended the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris last week wearing this semi-sheer knee-length pink polo dress. When I was 12, I had my own knee-length pink polo dress from Lands’ End (which was also semi-sheer, although it took me a year to realize it), and I can confidently say that Marc looks way better in his.
