Yea, that’s right, it’s Monday and instead of feeling sluggish and overwhelmed, we are eating every single one of these cookies. Which is fine because they’re one hundred percent vegan and practically a health food. God bless coconut oil. ***Bonus Monday points for silly mug***
You can find these vegan treats and soooo many more right HERE:
Documenting the zootiest silver-haired women and men of New York and beyond since 2008, Ari Seth Cohen and his eagle eye for the “sartorial splendor” of the over-fifty set are showing us and everyone how confidence and creativity in personal style encourages vitality, despite the year on your driver’s license.
For those of you who live under rocks, you know how good the earth smells. (see what we did there!?)
…Seriously though, you might not yet know about Juniper Ridge, some magical West Coast alchemists who make wilderness fragrances by distilling real life plants, wild herbs, bark, moss, and mushrooms they forage while hiking in the backcountry. One hundred percent harvested and distilled by hand, the old fashioned way, and it shows (smells). Their Big Sur Backpacker’s Cologne doesn’t smell like Big Sur, it is Big Sur. It’s a little part of that world, that ecosystem, in a bottle. Their Death Valley Camp Incense isn’t some weird blend of chemicals to imitate palely the visceral force of North America’s most bad ass desert, it is that visceral force.
Pharrell has a new solo album! We cannot stop listening to it. It’s sexy, poppy, sinuous, ethereal, weird, raunchy, awesome, booty-poppin, slick as all hell…Girl is an homage to the 1970s, Smokey Robinson, The BeeGees, the Jackson 5, and many others.

You know what they say: bounce and the whole world bounces with you, no matter how ridiculous your hat is.

Each month features one herb noted for it’s magical properties and a small hand-lettered day and date section.” So reads the tagline to this local illustrator’s amazingly brilliant March to February calendar “for lazy wizards who like art and herbs.”
Happy March 1st!! Like everyone else in America, slowly crawling out of our polar vortex hell holes we have SPRING FEVER. And nothing says spring fever like bright colors and children’s books and one of the most influential graphic designers of the twentieth century, right?! Right!!
We don’t love the moniker “super food” for a number of reasons. One, everybody just calm down. Two, it sounds like it’s trying too hard at a party. Three, it often has a “super” hefty price tag to match (we mean YOU, acai berry smoothies and Pom juice for twelve dollars a bottle!). ANYWAY, it looks like science is pretty solid on the fact that our favorite snack is a superfood and here’s why we love it, just this once.
