I've had some not-great experiences with laser hair removal, probably because I haven't done what they told me.
When Glossier launched in the U.S. back in 2014, it felt small - but in a good way. We were able to introduce ourselves locally, start a community, and build something special together.
Throughout your teens and twenties, it's pretty easy to live in a suspended reality - one where you never get old or need to spend much time thinking about 401Ks, mammograms, or renewing your license. You don't need me to tell you: that ends.
I like a semi-stressful massage - one where I can really feel something being worked out.
Where Halloween is concerned, I peaked in 2007.

Nobody said being platinum was easy.
I think reality television has made the fashion industry and the beauty industry, any industry - frankly, just life - it has made life seem much different than it really is.
I've never been one for color theory or color wheels or undertone rules or anything like that. I don't know if my red lipstick 'should' be more blue or more orange.
Instagram has a faster chance of reaching me than CNN, and if I really want to know what's going on, I refresh my Twitter feed.
I like books that explore identity and youth culture or rites of passage.
When you own a pair of haircutting scissors, you cut your own hair constantly.
This is hard to admit, but historically, I haven't worn sunscreen. I know - not good.
Sunscreen, in the world of beauty, is the ultimate in adulting.
My wardrobe falls into two camps most of the time: either very monochromatic and tailored or really vintagey, with '30s and '40s-style long floral dresses. I don't buy that much, so every time I invest in something new, it has to elevate what I have hanging in my closet.
So much of venture capital is pattern recognition.
