You Asked, (And Complained), We Listened, (And Redesigned): The New Guest of a Guest Calendar Is Here!
Announcements

Last week, after many months of effort, we introduced a totally new Guest of a Guest. 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! Did you know you can highlight and feature your event in our "featured events" section that lives at the top of our homepage and other pages around our site?

16 Non-Toxic Products To Create A "Green" Makeup Bag For Earth Day

16 Non-Toxic Products To Create A
Things We Love

News flash – it’s just as important to be aware of what we put ON our bodies as what we put in them. So while most of us know to steer clear of GMO’s when it comes to our food, what you may not realize is that they’re also present in a lot of beauty products. Many popular bath, body and makeup items also use other dangerous toxins like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemicals, all of which have been linked to health issues and scary diseases including cancer. Yikes! 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?

News

The recreational use of marijuana has become increasingly kosher due to the legalization in Colorado and other states' flexible legislation. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, pop star idols to the young and impressionable, often post pictures of themselves smoking what appears to be weed-like substances. A drug that was once reserved for the stereotypical hippy has spread its wings and is flying high, so to speak, throughout the entire population. 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.!
