And, while most of the feedback we received was glowing, the one page we received the most criticism over was our calendar pages. It reconfirmed what we already knew - our calendar is important to you! We were grateful for the feedback and furiously set out redesigning our calendar pages to meet your requests, making it easier to navigate based on your feedback. You can now browse by time, date, and city, as well as view an entire month at once, making it possible to find exactly what you're looking for. Plus!

Luckily, sites like Birchbox and Sephora now offer ways to shop products based on their ingredients, so you don’t have to go blind reading each label yourself. But to make it even easier to rid your beauty routine of cancer-causing chemicals RIGHT NOW,  we’ve rounded up our 16 of our favorite toxin-free products. What better time to go natural than Earth Day?

Whether you're a soccer mom or a Fortune 500 CEO, the social stigma of smoking weed has increasingly fallen to the wayside. And now, with this weekend's 4/20 holiday, there are a lot of reasons for marijuana supporters to celebrate with the recent legislation movement in D.C.!
