Stress? Bad. Stress-combating skincare that makes you laugh, too? Very, very good.

It’s not often that skincare tells it like it is. More often than not, these packages are like the Wicked Stepmother’s Magic Mirror, promising that if you buy and use them you’ll be the fairest of them all. Counterpoint is the hilarious copy on boxes of Skyn Iceland, which bills itself as “The only skincare line designed to treat the effects of stress on the skin.” ...more

Think you can’t get great organic denim for under a hundred bucks? Think again.

Think you can’t get great organic denim for under a hundred bucks? Think again. We just discovered Good Society, which is all organic cotton, made on vintage shuttle looms, hand-sewn, fair-trade, and designed by some geniuses in Japan because seriously the fit is buttah. Emphasis on the butt. ...more

Sounds like an eco-fable: Coffee’s too jittery, tea’s too hot. Coffee berry? Just right!

There comes a day in every girl’s life when she drinks just a wee bit too much coffee. You remember, doncha? That time you mistakenly picked up someone else’s Peet’s and ended up with a triple espresso that didn’t let you sleep ‘til Monday? The all-nighter you pulled that left you with shaky hands and stomach cramps? ...more

Suds, rinse, repeat. Suds, rinse, save an acre of the Amazonian rainforest for a year!

Every morning it’s the same old drill: Suds, rinse, repeat. Sudse, rinse, condition. And yes, it’s a beautiful thing that many of us are now choosing shampoos that eschew sulfuric-acid derived sudsing agents like sodium laureth or sodium lauryl sulfate, which are skin irritants in favor of naturally derived sudsors that don’t mess with our skin and the ecosystem. But don’t you feel like there’s something missing? Can’t hair care do more? ...more

Don’t be a gold-digger! Try jewelry made from repurposed bullet casings. Now that’s recycling.

Gold-digger has so many negative connotations. First, there’s the obvious (she ain’t messin’ with no broke broke), then there are the devastating results of open-pit mining: Razed forests, disrupted eco-systems and giant trenches of earth poisoned by cyanide and sulphuric acid that pollute the water table. According to the EPA, gold mining generates more toxic waste than any other industry in America. Kind of puts that baby, baby please trinket you’ve been eyeing into a whole new perspective, now doesn’t it? ...more

Knotted muscles? Try a muscle massage bar infused with essential oils and go for the gold!

Feeling more like lying on the couch to watch hurling than going for your own personal best? When your neck is knotted up like last year’s failed crocheting project, it’s challenging—to say the least—to get that aching, stressed-out body into workout mode. ...more

Rachelle Carson-Begley gives a feminine perspective to the reality of hardcore greeniness.

Talking with Rachelle Carson-Begley about environmentalism must be a bit like comparing notes with Michelle Obama about the 2008 presidential campaign. Of course, Rachelle is gearing up for the second season of the HGTV reality show in which cameras go behind the scenes of her life with husband Ed Begley, Jr., while Michelle’s husband pretty much has the fate of the free world in his hands. (Or maybe that’s just our opinion.) But both men set the bar high in terms of their commitment and unwavering dedication to a cause. ...more

Perfect for après-sun or a night out, this dress is destined to be our favorite summer staple.

Did you know that a “slub” is a “slight irregularity in yarn produced either accidentally or purposely by knotting or twisting,” according to Dictionary.com? Probably not, unless you’re Morgan Freeman in “Wanted” or a weaver circa 1825, which is when the word was coined, according to Dictionary.com (the lazy girl’s source for etymological updates).  ...more
