Home Inspiration: Petite Succulent Pots From Etsy

By: Sophie Leon / June 18, 2014
Succulents are low maintenance plants that provide owners the illusion of a green thumb. Unlike more temperamental plants, succulents simply need a few hours of sunlight and a bit of water. Because these plants have shallow roots, the planter possibilities are endless! The hardest part is picking which pot to plant yours in... More »

My Top 5 Formative Geek Crushes

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / June 17, 2014
The wonderful thing about a hefty amount of geek/nerd culture is that it is super-optimistic. John Green, author of A Fault In Our Stars, says that nerds are basically people who are “unironically enthusiastic … too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.” Which is awesome! The first time I hung out with my now-boyfriend,… More »

Hi/Lo: Flat Sandals For Summer

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / June 16, 2014
I'm sad. After years of depending on J. Crew's Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just… More »

Etsy Spotlight: 7 Weird & Wonderful Feminist T-Shirts

By: Jessica Wakeman / June 14, 2014
Etsy is the go-to place to find homemade soaps and Christmas ornaments, so why not feminist T-shirts? But maybe a simple "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" tee won't get the point across.  Maybe only a vagina dentata T-shirt will cut it. Don't worry, Etsy sellers have got you covered! [Image of a confused woman via… More »

GUYS.  The "Game of Thrones" finale is THIS WEEKEND.  How did the season go by this fast?  Why must we wait another year until we get our fix of our favorite Westerosis?

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / June 12, 2014
I've found that it's surprisingly easy to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There's certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there -- if you're willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of… More »

Frisky Eats: The Healthy, Tasty, Wholly Underrated Turnip

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / June 12, 2014
Turnips are by no means a glamorous food. They're a hard root vegetable with a rough, bitter peel that you may only recognize from going to the farmer's market, picking one up, and saying, "Damn, that is one ugly radish." But listen up, people: turnips are SO GOOD when prepared correctly, they're packed full of… More »

By: Sophie Leon / June 11, 2014
I do a lot of bathing suit browsing, but I have yet to replace my worn out swimsuits. Ever notice how some pool decks and bottoms have a grainy finish leaving your swimsuit bottom with a patch of snags? My favorite one piece is suffering from scuffled butt. If you too are i… More »

Fashion Math: Pink + Orange

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / June 10, 2014
Pink alone is alright, but pink with orange? Now that makes me think of summer! I know what you're thinking. Uh, don't orange and pink clash? Yes! But in a good way! How else could a scoop of rainbow sherbet ice cream look so insanely delicious? (Especially right now -- I'm going to Baskin-Robbins at lunch.) I… More »

By: Sophie Leon / June 7, 2014
If you're anything like me, you realize all your fruit is ripe at the same time and put everything you have into a bowl and call it fruit salad. Well, turns out, technically it’s not fruit salad. It is a bowl of chopped up fruit. Oh. Real fruit salad is so yummy because it contai… More »

Must Haves: 7 Paper Bag Shorts

By: Sophie Leon / June 6, 2014
Let’s be honest, a lot of short styles are not particularly comfortable. They dig in at the waist and crotch, or fit great at the waist but squeeze into your thighs. And once you eat lunch? Forget about it. Paper bag shorts, with their cinched waist and roomier fit, are a cute alternative to regular… More »
