S.W. Recipe: Elana’s Veggie Sushi

If you know me, you know that I love sushi. I would eat it every single day if it was socially acceptable (is it?) and if I didn’t live with another human that enjoys some culinary variety. With this noted, sushi is always something I order in, which isn’t something I’m totally proud of — it can get expensive and it produces an awful lot of waste (hello, plastic-packaged soy sauces!).

Brooklynite’s Guide: Maui and Kauai

Yes, you must eat your weight in poké. And, no, you don’t need to attend a laui (they’re often touristy messes). But there’s perhaps no better piece of advice that I can give travelers to Hawaii than this one: Get on island time.

Let’s Talk About Sunscreen

Ah sunscreen. To be totally honest with you guys, we tend to cringe at all of the undeserving press, attention, and conversations that sun protection receives. Wait, don’t freak out at us. It’s not that we don’t understand and agree that it’s important to take really good care of your skin, and that one of the ways that you do that is by avoiding the dangers of sun damage. We get it. We’re not here to pitch you some radical notion that you don’t need sunscreen or that if you’re healthy that’s good enough. (And when you hear someone else say that, maybe run in the other direction.)

Being a natural skincare company that obsesses over holistic health, it makes sense we would get all up in wedding season. We have so much advice to share, especially if you’re the bride!

Wedding Season Wisdom: From the Bride

About seven years ago – as in, when I was in my early twenties – I was at the airport with my best friend Brienne. We were doing we normally do pre-flight: Spending inappropriate amounts of money on snacks and magazines in the airport’s Hudson News. While I don’t remember exactly what I purchased (probably a puzzling mix of highbrow / lowbrow –The New Yorker, US Weekly, Godiva chocolates, Cheetos), I do remember what Brienne bought: a Brides magazine.
