How do we heal from sexual assault?


by Morella Devost, EdM, MA Since October, we’ve been both witnesses and participants in a historic set of events. Investigative journalism blew the lid off the open secret that the media world is rife with harassment. #metoo became an avalanche of voices speaking of the enormity of the issue of abuse everywhere. Moguls were toppled.    All of this has initiated two important trends: awareness and accountability.    From an awareness perspective, an enormous spotlight has been shone on the issue. The testimony of hundreds of gymnasts in particular made irrevocably clear that the problem lies not just on the perpetrator, but on the environments that made it possible for them to be systematically abused. The problem is cultural and systemic.  We are also seeing accountability and justice like we’ve never seen before.

Feed Your Glow


by Lisa Nogueira With wedding season upon us, let’s talk about some healthy and beautifying food options for your big day!  On the morning of my wedding, I woke up with swollen red eyes. It was an out-of-town wedding, and my overactive planning brain led me to insomnia, and then not sleeping led to panic and, ultimately, tears. So there I was on the morning of my big day, swollen and red-eyed. My sister and I were staying in a bed and breakfast, so we scrambled for a solution. All I could find was a box of stress relief tea bags. “It’s perfect!”, I thought. I was feeling stressed and usually [...]

Hair-Free is the Way to Be


by Lisa Profera The cold winter weather has been brutal, but warmer temperatures and “fun in the sun” are not too far away. You may even be getting “save-the-date” notifications of weddings, reunions, or other special events coming up later this year. Whether it is a formal occasion or a casual gathering, you will want to look your best. Even though you may still be wearing layers now, the time for bare arms, armpits, and legs is right around the corner. So, what does that mean? Well, if you are like most women, you spend a lot of time shaving, plucking and waxing — ouch! I challenge you to consider permanent hair removal. Now is [...]

Woman on the Street | My Legwarmers Are Magic


by Stephanie Saline It started innocently enough when I wore my LL Cool J t-shirt to the gym. Sure, my drawers are filled with snazzy yoga tanks and sleek running tops, but there was something in the air that was more ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’ than lithe workout pony. I shimmied into my standard issue skin-tight capris and, because it was cold and there was a good five inches of skin between where my pants ended and my ankle socks began, I added the finishing touch to my outfit with (wait for it) . . . legwarmers.  At first, I thought nothing of it. But once at the [...]

Love Your Swimwear — Any Size, Any Age


by Angela Harrison If you’re headed off to warmer climates for Spring Break this month, or just need a swimwear refresh for the coming summer season, I’ve got you covered. There’s so much more to swimsuits than what meets the eye. A good suit that will hold up through washing, and last several seasons, won’t come by cheap but is completely worth the investment. These swimwear lines tend to be made with a thicker, more durable padding and fabric (that lasts in the wash), are double-lined for less exposure while wet, and have styles with support technology, which can be crucial for the perfect fit. High quality swim [...]
