Life Update

Spring. Everything becomes so fresh when the weather turns warm and sweet in preparation for Summer. The flowers are up, the night air is crisp, and if you're reading this from a cozy seat here in New York, everything is wet because it hasn't stopped raining for days. I'm not one for being dreary on [...]

Ditch Those Disposables

Ditch Those Disposables

For this eco-friendly Friday, we're going to touch base on reusable razors. They can be a little unnerving for people who tend to shave around some more delicate areas like the armpit and the back of the knee, but they're not as scary as they seem.
