Afternoon Snack

Ready to quit February and march on in to March? Fortify yourself first with this Afternoon Snack!


Last Monday we found out that Colourpop was releasing a Sailor Moon makeup collection, and this Monday we discovered that it’s already sold out. Where is Queen Serenity’s justice for the eternally broke???


Other things broke millennials will never have include HOMES, so instead we’ll just waste our free time daydreaming on Zillow.

Foodie hero Samin Nosrat (of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat fame) was recently profiled in the New Yorker, and has a lot of refreshing things to say about eating well and eating responsibly, even when you fail.
