To soothe dry hands This won’t work for dry digits when you’re on the go, but at home, coconut oil can work wonders on your dishwashing-parched hands. “I keep a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil by the kitchen sink and put a little on after washing my hands to keep them soft and moist,” says Dr. Low Dog. And if you cook with coconut oil—you can sub it for butter in baking recipes […]

Product Reviews: Intelligent Nutrients New Hair Shine (Plus Two Other Leave-Ins I Love)

In my good-hair-day arsenal, there are three products. They each serve their purpose, and I use none more than the other, so I’ll tell you about all three at once! One is sort of new and achieves such a pretty air-dry that it makes me want to do so even when it’s cold out; and the other is an old favorite that I buy over and over again; and the last one is brand new and so versatile that I use it on my arms and legs, too. Yarok Feed Your Ends Leave-In Conditioner What it’s good for: Bounce, waves, […]

My MM: Greta’s Meatless Menu

Meet Greta, and her fabulous meatless menu. She’s trying to cut out dairy, but has an (understandably) hard time parting with cheese. In my experience adding a drizzle of olive oil with some nutritional yeast can really curb the craving. Anyone else have tips for quitting cheese? Name: Greta Location: metro-Detroit, MI Dietary Leanings: Omnivore, and trying to eliminate dairy due to a sensitive stomach (tough for this cheese lover!). Heavy on the fruits & vegetables. I go through vegan phases regularly, and tend to favor fish/seafood when I’m eating animal products. Fave vegetable: Gimme greens! Collard and kale make […]

Happy Friday Deal From NuboNau!

Would’ya look at that, it’s already Friday! It’s also, um, October. Which means time continues to throttle along, and fall is officially here. That’s why we’re stoked that today is a NuboNau deal (well, we’re always stoked when it’s one of their deals). But especially so because NuboNau carries a wide range of products we love, and right now we’re in the process of rethinking our routines with the changing of the seasons. More on that next week, but in general, we like to reach for some heavier creams and decadent body oils as temperature cools. Not to mention new […]

We Heart FASHION Magazine (And Not Just Because They Heart Us)

Guys! FASHION, which is the best (and just generally super-chic) fashion magazine from Canada, has named us a National Treasure in their November issue! We’re in great company. The list, as you can see, also includes our beloved Rose-Marie Swift, the ladies of Revolution Organics, and others. We’re over the moon. Also, and this part is insane: This marks the first time a women’s fashion and beauty magazine has covered No More Dirty Looks. Literally the first. Ever! Don’t get us wrong, we’re super grateful for all the love the book and the site has gotten in TIME, in New […]

Get Happier: Wish for Five Nice Things

The other night over dinner with friends, I invented a new game. As we tore into our appetizers of fennel salad, roasted cauliflower and Cabernet (yes, wine counts), we played a round of something I’ll call Wish for Five Nice Things. Our friends are good sports, and they know me well enough to just roll with this kind of cheesy forced-participation dinnertime activity when inspiration strikes. The three of us have played Say Five Nice Things together several times over shared meals. On another occasion, we decided that everyone at the table should say something nice to the person to […]
