  April 17th starts a whole new period around healing, as Chiron enters Aries for the next nine years. Known as “the wounded healer” who could help everyone but himself, the asteroid Chiron (nestled in between Saturn and Uranus) aids us in learning from our personal pain to benefit the world around us. For the past nine years, he has been swimming through the spiritual Piscean waters, showing us how to repair our souls through community and a higher purpose. Taking fifty years to cross the...
Food stylist Kaoru Mitsui gives her profession a whole new meaning with her art project Food on a Photograph (@

The Tokyo-based creative seamlessly adorns black- and-white images with colorful bits of herbs, fruits, and vegetables, so that Adele sports a cherry fascinator, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes wears pea pod earrings, and her main muse, Audrey Hepburn (the star of her ’zine Dress the Food, $18, kitchenartsandletters.com) models a coat made of cauliflower.By Lisa Butterworthimages via Food On A Photograph/Kaoru Mitsui This article originally...
As a lifelong tree hugger, deciding to go zero waste (i.e. creating as little trash as possible) was a no-brainer for me. So many resources are put into the products we consume, only to be destined to live forever in a landfill. When I embarked on my zero-waste journey (#trashfreeinla), I realized most of my trash came from eating out and single-use disposables like coffee cups, straws, utensils, and napkins. Not only are these items used for mere minutes, but also an alarming amount end...
"A cheap whore that got lucky": that’s the general historic consensus on Jeanne Bécu; more commonly known as Madame Du Barry, rival of Marie Antoinette and scandalous mistress of Louis XV. BUT I’D ARGUE THERE’S WAY MORE TO THIS LADY THAN JUST BEING THE SIDE JOKE OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION.See, the tale of Madame Du Barry is Mean Girls in Versailles, with a smattering of Showgirls AND an underdog story built around scandal, rivalry and determination. Its got love, sex and one hell of a leading lady...
Societal pressure to have the perfect body isn’t new, but societal pressure to have the perfect nipples might be. In a recent video with The New York Post, Dr. Norman Rowe, a plastic surgeon New York, reports an increase in women looking for what he calls the “designer nipple”—one that is perpetually hard, with a small, light-colored areola. “A lot of patients are coming in with the intent of, you know, burning their bras,” Rowe says. “More recently, the more prominent nipple has become a very...

In the world of money, cryptocurrency (and the blockchain technology that supports it) has moved from the realm of tech-savvy investors to the mainstream. The shift has created a modern-day tech gold rush: students are dropping out of college and becoming Bitcoin millionaires; coins that emerged on the market for mere pennies are now worth (tens of) thousands of dollars. But for the uninitiated, it’s hard to understand what cryptocurrency is, let alone why you should care. The simple answer? Because it’s only getting bigger.  Cryptocurrency...

Many historical novels feature a serving girl who has gotten herself into “trouble.” In fiction, the understanding mistress of the house is quick to intervene and, in short order, the serving girl’s future is secured to everyone’s satisfaction. In reality, female servants of the 19th century were expected to preserve their reputations in order to maintain genteel employment. The character of one’s servants was a reflection on the house as a whole. To that end, no respectable Victorian lady wanted a light-skirt for a housemaid or...
