1. How To Follow The 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine
Korean beauty and skin care have turned into a global phenomenon; one that pulls up endless videos on YouTube when searched and one that might have you buying numerous products you don’t really need or know what to do with.
While the much talked-about and followed 10-step routine may seem extreme and time-consuming, the ultimate goal is to help you understand the way each product is formulated and how it works, so that you can select and choose the ones (or all) that work for you, your skin type and lifestyle.

2. The Best Pieces To Buy From Khloe Kardashian’s “Good American” Collection
By now you have heard of the clothing line co-founded by Khloe Kardashian, Good American. What started out as a denim-only brand reported sales of $1 million less than two months after launching. It is no wonder the line is continuing to expand, and its latest offering is a performance and activewear line described as “activewear for every woman.”
The addition of workout gear is no surprise really as Kardashian has been documenting her own fitness journey through the years, through various social media channels and her hit reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians .
The Good American clothing brand is focused on size inclusiveness and the activewear line was made to enhance your shape and performance, fitted and perfected on real bodies, sizes 00-26. The training gear was developed using the highest-quality fabrics, featuring four-way stretch and UV protection. Designed to be worn from intense workouts to post-gym outings, there is an option for everyone and every body.
Below we have featured eight pieces from the line that will not only make you look and feel great, they will get you excited about getting out and moving your body again.
3. Hair Hacks: How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster
Your hair only grows about a half an inch each month. Whether you’re suffering from a bad hair cut or simply longing to add length to your luscious locks, there are a number of proven ways to encourage your hair to grow quicker. One of the best ways to promote faster growth is by getting regular “micro-trims,” which remove split ends that inhibit the growth of your normal hair. While trimming your hair may feel like a counter-intuitive step, it’s more of a one step back for two steps forward case.
In addition to regular trims, there are a number of products available to put your hair in the best shape for maximum growth. Treating your hair with a blend of protein therapy and intense hydration is key to helping it grow, repair, and avoid breakage. These helpful products range from vitamins to scalp stimulating massagers.
4. This T-Shirt Features An Electric Guitar You Can Actually Play
The T-shirt has been around for a while. Its current form dates back to the Spanish-American War, when the US Navy started issuing them as a cooler alternative to 19th century long johns. Proto T-shirts showed up millennia ago as a simplified version of the Roman tunic, and a T-shaped pullover made of rough, scratchy wool was used by monks in the middle ages.
But in all those long years, and despite some memorable moments in T-shirt history, such as James Dean’s use of the sleeve to hold a pack of Lucky Strikes, no one has thought to turn this humble garment into a playable electric guitar fully capable of rocking out. That is, until now.
