There is a song with a hook that goes: “Kissing you is all that I’ve been thinking of…” That song is our grownup jam — our adult version of the playground lyrics that teased our elementary school crushes. Kissing is fun and sexy and essential for many of us but you’ve got to come to the table…or bed prepared to pucker up. In a week we will officially be into a new season and you know what that means. “More kissing!” you say? Actually it’s the start of dry, cracked and ashy lips season. A non-good look if there every was one. Some people notice a difference in their lips by the end of summer way before winter approaches so we’re cutting the flaky lip beast off at the ankles with these seven tips for how to get soft, smooth, kissable lips fast.

This satchel is just so cool—and roomy enough to hold a weekend's worth of stuff. Wear it on your arm or slip on the detachable shoulder strap. Any way you carry it, this one is a winner (and will be for a long time to come).
There is something to be said about white privilege. Case in point, Vogue's recent article entitled, “We’re Officially in the Era of the Big Booty.” In my Tracee Ellis Ross voice, "Could somebody please tell my ass?" I thought we've been here all along.

Remember when you opened up your mom’s newest edition of Essence and Susan Taylor’s bright smile and cornrows laid to the gawds gleamed back at you? That’s what were talking about. READ MORE

Need a hair cut or your spit ends chopped? A stylist will incinerate your ish right off of your head if you are brave enough. All we want to know is what happens if there is a backdraft? We saw the movie so we're just saying.

Hair brushes have been used by humanity for many creative things outside of hair. It’s the go-to microphone for our inner Aretha Franklin that’s waiting to burst out in R-E-S-P-E-C-T at any moment.
