ADORAtherapy: Mood-Boosting Aromatherapy Sprays

There’s nothing that will affect my mood quite the way the weather will. When it’s sunny, minor annoyances just roll off my shoulder; when it’s cold or stormy, I’m just PISSED.ALL.THE.TIME. To this day, I question how I survived four years at Cornell…though, truth be told, I didn’t go to class all that much because of my issues with the weather

Foods that will Affect Your Mood for the Better – and the Worse

It’s no secret that eating chocolate and french fries tends to only cause temporary delight (it’s not for nothing that they say “a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips…”). But that’s not all. Food can greatly affect our mood, and it goes way beyond “food guilt.”

Kusmi Now has an Iced Tea-Tox

Kusmi Now has an Iced Tea-Tox

When Kusmi came out with their BB Detox, I drank copious amounts of it (So good! Even better and more refreshing than their original). It was summertime about two years ago so I made an iced version.

The Future Is (Almost) Here: A Portable Molecular Sensor to Scan Food, Pills, Skin, and More

How cool would it be if you could scan a piece of fruit and find out not only if it’s organic, but all its nutritional information so that you could, for example, be sure that you’re buying the sweetest watermelon on display?
