@SarahP What kind of trade is occupied by a Jason?
"Juice your spine."
"Hit the bottom of your ribcage as you draw your elbows down and you will unlock your karmic powers."
"This asana has protective qualities that will help guard your body against radiation from Fukishima."
This is why I no longer do yoga!
@Daisy Razor Sadly, I do... see my comment below. This should have been a major hint that this woman's values weren't in line with mine anymore, if they ever had been to begin with. The reward for pushing is the baby...
I am sad to say these are real - my former best friend demanded one from her husband. They still can't make ends meet, but she totally needed a third diamond ring because of all the hard work of making the baby - yuck.
@S. Elizabeth Actually, chemo can make people much more sensitive to certain cosmetic ingredients. I watched it happen with my mother. And since someone going through chemo wants badly to look and feel like herself again, it's a real kick in the teeth to find out that your old makeup makes you break out in painful rashes.
I'm sorry, but some of the comments on here don't even seem aimed at the article at all. All she's talking about is makeup, not medicine. And while I agree that "toxins" can sound vague, it is absolutely true that women in the United States are being sold products that contain lead and formaldehyde. Which, regardless of your affinity for things all-natural, you should probably try to avoid.
One last thing, then I'm off my soap box - this is definitely not the only promotional piece the Hairpin has ever posted - see the article pushing natural deodorant from etsy, or just about any author pushing their newest publication.
My grandma and grandpa got married when they were young and very poor. He invested well, and later became pretty wealthy. As they got older, almost every anniversary would bring a new fancy ring - emeralds, sapphires, and more diamonds.
I inherited the first little ring, and it has a lot of sentimental value. I love the story, too.
Sorry, but is AskMen different from Men's Health? If you want to ruin your day, check out their relationship advice... uggggh.
Easy, and not impressive-sounding, but SO good and SO easy: Mix a can of canellini beans with a jar of marinara sauce and stuff it in a pita. Amazing. Gotta eat it right away, though, it gets messy.
My favorite comments go like this: Vegans can't be healthy, I know a fat vegan - OR - Vegans can't be healthy, I know a really skinny vegan.
So, the take away is, vegans are shaped more or less like the rest of us? Awful.
