My beauty philosophy is simple. I think everyone is beautiful, and there is no need to plaster my face and body in toxic chemicals to feel so. I appreciate beauty in it’s natural form, and for the most part tend to shy away from entirely covering my face in makeup, because I think it creates […]

When it comes to beauty, I tend to ignore any advice anyone gives me. My make-up motto is basically, “Who’s gonna stop me?” I don’t pay attention to make-up trends, since I’m old enough to see how arbitrary and repetitive they tend to be. I definitely don’t pay attention to the silly surveys in which […]

Acure Argan Oil I know Argan Oil has recently come on the scene as the magic cure-all; from repairing split ends to minimizing wrinkles and softening […]

REVIEW: Essie Nail Polish

REVIEW: Essie Nail Polish

Admittedly, I am a little late jumping onto the nail polish bandwagon. Last year, total U.S. nail polish sails spiked to $768 million, a 32% spike over 2011,with no sign of slowing in 2013. Essie Nail Polish is my newest beauty obsession. I have rationally never been one for nail polishes, I can’t sit still for […]

Having been immersed in the cannabis reform movement and culture for nearly two decades, I’ve seen the gamut of stoner “fashion”. A lot of the pieces are really linear and well, boring. A few exceptions in my collection (which are leaning towards being vintage by now), would be a heart with cannabis leaf and RX […]
