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 shoes –… More »


Frisky Eats: The Healthy, Tasty, Wholly Underrated Turnip

Winona Dimeo-Ediger | June 12, 2014 - 9:00 am

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 »

Sophie Leon | June 11, 2014 - 9:00 am

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 in the market… More »

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!

Sophie Leon | June 7, 2014 - 1:00 pm

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 contains… More »


Must Haves: 7 Paper Bag Shorts

Sophie Leon | June 6, 2014 - 4:00 pm

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 »

5 Genre-Busting Comic Books For People Who Think They Hate Comic Books

Kate Conway | June 1, 2014 - 1:00 pm

Until I was in my early twenties, I was never that into comic books. See, I have a lot of trouble being a “dabbler” when it comes to things that captivate me. A coworker of mine recently joked that he’d want me to be president of his hypothetical fan club, because he knew that I’d… More »

Hallelujah, beautiful, balmy weather has arrived! Yesterday, the temps in New York City reached optimal levels (in my opinion) and I celebrated by drinking beers on my roof and cultivating a patchy base tan.

Sophie Leon | May 25, 2014 - 12:00 pm

Arancini is a popular Italian dish in which balls of rice, often mixed with cheese, are breaded and deep fried. Thus the common nick name, rice balls.
