There's no feeling like it. Walking through a cloud of glitter, surrounded by an aura of aromatherapy, you're in. You're in Lush. Nothing else in this world matters, because all of the remedies for all of your troubles are right here.

Going through a breakup? There's a bath bomb for that. Under so much stress your losing hair? There's a conditioner for that. Freaking out about what you're going to do after graduation? Me too. Allow one of the associates to show you this mask that's going to change your complexion and thus have you forgetting about it all.

I really feel like all of the fairy tale creatures we read about when we were younger took a bunch of Molly and conjured up this store. I mean really, it's as magical as it gets.

Though Lush appeared that it could not get any more divine, it came up with zero-waste shampoo. Yup, a shampoo that's both nourishing for the earth and your hair.

Trademarked for its vegan products which fight against animal testing, Lush is now taking one step further by using a zero-waste approach.

Their most popular take on the zero-waste movement is their shampoo bar. What appears to be a very fragrant macaron is actually a bar of shampoo that you run through your hair as you do a bar of soap to your skin.

It activates just as shampoo does to your hair leaving it nourished and clean. Of course, its ingredients include are all natural, I mean its Lush we're talking about. However, the bar wears down over the course of about 25 uses, and then it is gone. No trash, no waste, and no BS.

I have been critical towards the zero-waste movement in the past — while I believe it to be an exemplary way to live, it's also vastly implausible for a majority of people. However, taking approaches each and every day to cut down your waste is important no matter who you are.

We have all of the simple bases covered: use a reusable (preferably BPA free) water bottle, use reusable bags, try and buy bulk yadda yadda, this one is something that is so incredibly effortless. At about 12 dollars for a bar (again about 25 uses) you get effortless hair cleanings and do not have the hassle of finding a place for your oversized, clunky shampoo bottle.

More high-end shampoos which, by the way, are most likely filled with sulfates and unnatural ingredients that will end up doing more damage to your hair, in the long run, go for about, what, $65 a bottle? For like 40 uses perhaps? If we do the math correctly, that's 24 dollars for 50 uses.

While you may not be the kombucha drinking, hike for fun, brush your teeth with baking soda kind of person, we can all get along with cutting our waste down as much as we can. Especially if it involves less hassle than our wasteful lives.

I'm done explaining, there's no reason you shouldn't at least try one of these little guys out.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
