6 Serum Picks Under $30

  Serums are essential for great skin. They can target multiple skin concerns (like oil control, dry skin, hydration, dark spots, etc.) and are packed with powerful active ingredients that promise a goal-worthy, selfie-inspiring complexion, and radiance.   But there are so many kinds of serums presenting all sorts of benefits nowadays.

Weed Rituals with Mimi Lam

What’s your personal weed ritual?  My weed ritual has changed a lot over the last several years and I’ve incorporated weed more and more into my everyday life. In general, I roll joints and smoke them on my balcony or on walks after a long day’s work and when I just need some brain space to think. I also sometimes consume oil or capsules before I go to bed, which has been a real game-changer for my sleep. When I’m with friends and my team, a sesh in the park happens more often than not.   What I’ve also discovered...

Who's gaining from cannabis reform?

  Many reasons have led countries, and various states in the US to work towards the decriminalization of marijuana.   According to the BBC, one of the reasons was its growing need in the medical field as pain medication.

That’s even more than air travel AND international combined! Over the past two decades, the amount of...

Why I Trashed Fast Fashion + What To Buy Instead

Once upon a time, I was one of the many fast fashion aficionados, turning an important part of my monthly entry salary into mountains of polyester clothing piled up casually on the floor of the so-called ‘utility room’ in my apartment.

Every now and then, I had to get rid of those not eligible for another such ‘night,’ making room...

5 Best Clean Mascaras under $25

  We all know that a well-defined eye can make or break any makeup look, which is why it’s important that we have a reliable mascara in our beauty routine and not just any mascara.  A number of mascaras were reported to have carcinogenic properties like carbon black, a powder made from coal tar. Yikes. It’s appalling to know that standard mascaras will come with a certain amount of mercury and formaldehyde. We don’t that those near our peepers.    With all the options in the market, it can get overwhelming finding a clean, organic, and cruelty-free mascara that’s just right...
