BROO Wants You To Wash Your Hair With Beer

Man you can learn a lot roaming the aisles at Whole Foods! Did you know, for example, that beer is actually great for your hair? Well, it is, and that premise is precisely the basis for BROO.

Still Standing Spray: Mitigate High Heel Pain

I wish Still Standing existed when I was in high school! Back in my teenage years and through my early 20s I had no consideration for comfort. Blisters? Who cares! I didn’t even care if my shoes were the right size as long as they looked good. Needless to say my feet back then were heinous looking.

TumericALIVE: New Juices Worth Trying

It’s hard to keep track of all the juice brands and shops (remember when it was just Organic Avenue and Blueprint??). Rarely is there a brand that offers something new. TumericALIVE however is worth singling out.

Palais des Thes’ New Box Sets

I am tea obsessed. The fastest way for me to lose respect for a restaurant that considers itself top tier is if they give me a Twinings tea or something similar (in Tokyo I had the pleasure of dining at a steakhouse where said Twinings cost $14!). I approach tea the same way a sommelier approaches wine and I’ve developed a pretty discerning palette over the years.

Get Summer Ready With These New Razors

Get Summer Ready With These New Razors

Razors have been getting a lot of attention lately thanks to this article in New York Magazine and while I will agree that a rotating razor seems like a gimmick and that I am always surprised at just how expensive my refills are ($26ish for 8 new cartridges?!), there are some new developments worth getting behind in the realm of razors, one of which will actually save you money.
