- Can the Fashion Industry Really Become Carbon Neutral? -Burberry, Gucci, and Gabriela Hearst – these are a few of the major names that are going carbon neutral.

- Kim Kardashian Wears Shapewear Just as Often as You Wear Underwear — Every. Single. Day. – Two things shocked me when I met Kim Kardashian. First, she’s probably the nicest celebrity I’ve ever interviewed (she called me “boo” during the interview, and, no, I’m still not over it).
