Craigslist can help you find way more than an internship or cheap furniture. In Chelsea Marshall and Joe Predham’s case, it can find you your soul mate! “Joe and I met in September of 2010 when we became roommates,” says Chelsea. Yes, they answered ads looking for roommates, and they found each other.

The couple shared their first kiss on the roof of the building where they lived together, and in March of 2016, they returned to that same rooftop and Joe proposed. “As we started planning, we looke

On Chronic Illness and Clothes

Heels click neatly on the slick pavement; fog settles faintly down on a warm February night. It’s hard to keep up with Elsie A. Tellier ’19 as she marches down the mostly empty streets, talking—and walking—a mile a minute.

“A lot of people in my freshman year knew me as that one girl who made this really long post in the Facebook page explaining the history of women’s sizing and why women’s sizing is messed up.” She pauses. “It’s a long story.”

Today, Tellier is wearing blush-colored heels, light-

There’s no hiding from the fact that the fashion industry has a problem with diversity. Despite years of activist pressure, the runways still reflect a very white, thin and one-sided view of the world, one which serves to marginalize many of the people whose creativity drives the industry in the first place.

Thankfully things are starting to move in the right direction. The runways for Spring/Summer 2018 were some of the most diverse yet in terms of race, size and trans/non-binary inclusion. Whil

Business ideas for 2018: Inclusive beauty

Over the last two years, there has been a significant step-change in the beauty industry, with both established brands and new players embracing inclusive beauty and celebrating diversity across variables such as race, gender, and age.

In America, singer-turned-entrepreneur Rihanna recently declared “beauty for all” with her widely-acclaimed Fenty make-up range, featuring 40 foundations for “women of all shades, attitudes and colours” to enable “all women to feel included”.

Beauty by Science

Saying that all facials are the same is a bit like saying all wines are the same. Yes, on a fundamental level, they all treat you (and your mind) to some pampering and relaxing, with the added bonus that your face looks great afterwards. But just like there’s a world of difference between a box of Franzia and a bottle of Dom, there are facials and then there are facials. I had one of the latter just before the holidays at Breathing Space Spa on the East Side.

Function over Fashion

One of the very best things about winter is winter clothes. Winter allows one to liberate one’s inner fashion outlaw. Cold weather eliminates or overrules the dictates of style all in the name of keeping warm. As the temperature drops and we seek to keep the energy bill down, you can get away with fashion faux pas like wearing your husband’s hooded sweatshirt that’s super soft inside. Fabulously comfortable items including full zip sweats and cardigans emerge from their summer hibernation in tru

At one point in season two of The Crown, Princess Margaret asks Queen Elizabeth II with withering froideur, “Don’t Philip’s Nazi sisters come back to haunt him? Or his lunatic mother? Or his womanizing, bankrupt father?” It’s not just a jab, it’s foreshadowing: A few episodes later, The Crown tackles Prince Philip’s haunting past and Prince Charles’s tormented present by intertwining their days at the Scottish boarding school Gordonstoun.

It’s a beautiful episode, already reviewed as one of the s

While shopping for your wedding trousseau, don’t forget to lay the solid foundation it needs to be built on: the lingerie. Buying your wedding lingerie is just as important and requires the same amount of thought as picking up an outfit. There’s nothing worse than finding that perfect looking lingerie set only to find yourself uncomfortable in it. Feeling sexy comes from confidence, and if you’re lacking conviction in what you wear, it’s hard to pull it off.

“Lingerie has to be beautiful, comfort
