Could There Be A Math Equation For Perfect Life Balance?

These days it seems like a lot more life choices are driven by data. And now that I live (most of the time) in the start-up land of tech-savvy San Francisco, I find myself often pondering what the numbers can tell us. Perhaps surprisingly, NMDL has a favorite formula. It’s called the 80/20 rule. And as many of you know, it works like this: As long as you make good choices 80% of the time, you can be a little bit naughty for the other 20% (a little!). We’ve always applied this practice to personal care products. In other words, […]

Have You Used Apple Cider Vinegar On Your Hair?

*We first published this in the early days of the site, and guess what? We still love ACV as much as ever. How about you? Every time someone new comes over, I wonder if they’ll be alarmed by the magnum of apple cider vinegar that sits next to my tub. The salad-dressing staple, most of us know, is amazing for use on our hair, in part because its pH is similar to that of most conditioners—making it an easy nontoxic way to get smooth strands without forking over the big bucks for a fancy conditioner. (Not that I don’t love […]

Skin: Pale with pink undertones, combination, sensitive Hair: thick and wavy and medium brown Favorite Star from past: Joni Mitchell In the Shower… I’m not exactly what you would call a morning person (the transition into becoming one is a slowly dying New Year’s Resolution), so I usually shower at night to save time in the morning.

The Whys and Hows of the Bold Brow

Seems like it was a few years back when I noticed bold brows starting to trend, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised to see it continue.  Looks like this is going to hang on for a while, so I thought I’d kick in my two cents.  Prepare yourself for some bold brow advice from a gal who’s been sporting the look since toddlerhood.  Several months ago I decided to let my brows grow out even more, though I’ll admit this was based more on laziness than trend following.  I’ve got some serious brows, and I tired of tweezing every single day to keep things […]
