The Lowdown on Reusable Period Products

In recent years, reusable alternatives to common feminine products have emerged on the market and are becoming favorites among the Gen-Yers who are highly committed to supporting ethical business practices and sustainability. Every year, approximately 12 billion pads and 7 billion tampons are thrown away, many of which end up in rivers and oceans.

Secondhand Clothes, Firsthand Style

Even before Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” song emerged, the mainstream population was just starting to appreciate the value of a thrifted T-shirt. Brick-and-mortar stores like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, and small local shops, leave no shortage of options in your area. There are even some apps including Depop and Poshmark that allow you to sell your own goods or buy straight out of someone else’s closet.

Six Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands to Try Now

For those who place special attention on the treatment of our furry companions, buying cruelty-free products is a must. While shopping for beauty products, you always check the labels for that familiar little bunny rabbit giving you the green light to buy. You might even look at blogs and online lists of companies that test on animals or the companies that do not test on animals, but their parent companies do.

Five Things You Need to Change Before You Get to College

I don't care how prepared you thought you were for college, no one is that prepared. First and foremost, you need to adjust your attitude to the imminent sh*t storm that will be coming your way.

Get ready for whatever is thrown at you because the only way to leave school sane is to take all the hits as gracefully as possible.

Live in Technicolor: Alternatives for Nude Makeup

Nude makeup shades have become incredibly popular this past year, with many women flocking to the stores and to their laptops, looking for their perfect beige and brown colors to complement their look. While it is admirable that women are embracing a more natural look, it all feels a bit plain. It almost seems that women have lost their sense of playfulness when it comes to their beauty regimens.

Style Inspiration: Wednesday & Morticia Addams

When I was a little girl, I adored Wednesday from the Addams Family. Her attitude, her composure, her strange hobbies, and her personal style all fascinated me and made me want to look and act just like her. Others were more drawn in by matriarch Morticia Addams for her personal brand of creepy sensuality. This is for the girls who wanted to grow up in the Addams Family.

Portrait of a Wearist: Sayoko Yamaguchi

Considering herself a “wearist” rather than a model, Sayoko was not simply a hanger to display the clothing, but an element of the artistic process in representing the clothing. She had respect for the craft that exceeded dressing well. Sayoko applied her love for the art of fashion to other platforms of expression.

Fashion Style: Rude Boys Funk Things Up

The term Rude Boy dates back to the 1960s ‒‒ pre-Rihanna ‒‒ in the streets of Jamaica. At this time, Jamaica was facing overpopulation that led to housing, food, and employment shortages. Young men called ‘rude boys’ were hustlers and hoodlums, taking on illegal activities to substitute for the legal employment they could not find.

Waving Flag

Though the fourth of July may have come and gone, the spirit of red, white and blue lives on. This trio associated with summer festivities is not limited to one day of the year anymore. Besides being a national staple as the colors of our flag, red, white and blue are a classic combination that hold up all year long.

Getting Caught In The Wind

Sometimes it’s fun to walk down the street and feel the breeze against your face. The wind picks up and tosses your hair back for you. You may not be a supermodel, but for that moment, no one can tell you otherwise. Some types of clothing make it easier to have the feeling of a wind machine with you.

Boy Meets Girl

During the season of flowy sundresses and bright floral prints, it’s easy for a girl to get lost in the abundance of femininity. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see a Fashionista in a summer look that keeps us from overdosing on girliness. Don’t get me wrong, this is certainly a look for college girls, but it doesn’t throw that in your face.
