The Best Vegan, Organic and Eco-Friendly Beauty Buys for Earth Day

Apr 14, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Personally I’ve never been a fan of beauty that’s organic, natural or eco-friendly—I attribute this to my hippie parents where anything “natural” is immediately associated with the scent of patchouli oil. But now that it’s no longer the ‘60s, and women are looking to find beauty products that are better for them than their paraben-filled counterparts, there’s a decent selection of products that are good for you, good for the earth and don’t smell like hemp.

Casa Las Tortugas: Mexico's Hidden Gem is a Welcomed Break From the Crowds

Mar 10, 2015  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Though living in something a little on the smaller side may have once indicated financial woes, it's no longer the case. Many people choose a less expansive house in addition to their existing estate (think vacation home), while others do it to limit their carbon footprint and live more simply.

Jan 3, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Sparkling water is one of those things that will eventually win you over. Once you get the bug, you have a hard time going back to still. But unless you stock the fridge with bottles or get a gadget that carbonates beverages, like a Sodastream, you're pretty much stuck with boring old still when you're home.

Dec 22, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Some of us long for cold weather just so we can have an excuse to use our fireplace. To be honest, if we had a Cocoon Fireplace, we would be sorely tempted to blast the air conditioner during the summer so we could get that fire blazing. Of course, we wouldn't, because that would defeat the purpose of the super eco-friendly design of Cocoon.

Oct 31, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S has been getting a lot of press lately and judging by the early drive reactions, it deserves it. From the outside, it doesn't look all that different from other SUVs, but Porsche has packed enough inside to get it to stand apart. Starting at $74k (and rising up to at least $114k), the tiptronic S E-Hybrid boasts 420hp at 6,000rpm, with a  3.6-liter twin-turbo V6  that hits a 0-60 advancement in 5.2 seconds (5.1 when in Sport Chrono) and a top track speed of 161mph.

Aug 15, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Most people have no idea just what goes into landscape design, mistakenly believing that the job ends with plant placement.

Jul 29, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

There is something that we really love about ethically-derived, ecologically-friendly jewelry. Maybe it’s that there are limited resources or that it’s so much easier to buy a conflict-free diamond that not doing so makes us feel like bad people—our only issue is the selection can be sort of—limited.
