Citi Bike Is The New Blowout
INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE ACCEPTANCE GROWINGSource: According to CNN "intermarriages" are on the rise since the Supreme Court struck down a ban on interracial marriage. The study was conducted by Pew Research Center's Social and Demographic Trends project. Social media sites had a lot to say about it. Some were excited others longing for a day where inter-racial marriages are no longer a big deal. These "inter-marriages" hit an all time high of 8.4% in 2010 compared to 3.2% in 1980. CNN has even more details as far as numbers so you can see the growth and where it's happening. What are your thoughts? How do you think these acceptances have influenced cultures in these areas?
Ride a Citi Bike every day—to my office, cross-town for after work drinks, to Brooklyn to visit my brother.
I’m all over it. I soon discovered that in addition to being my favored form of public transportation, riding a Citi Bike (or any bike) is also the perfect opportunity for a low-maintenance beauty person like myself to fake the look of “doing my hair.”
Here’s what I do: I wash and condition my hair, and then, while it’s still wet, I take a wide tooth comb and run it through. I have naturally curly hair, but if I comb it, the curls turn into waves. Then I twirl my hair (still wet) up into a bun and clip it. At this point, I let my hair dry naturally. Sometimes I do this at night, sometimes early in the morning. Once it’s dry (enough) I take it out of the bun and I use one product: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I spray it over my head, pretty liberally, and then work it through with my fingers. I get on my bike, and let the ride do the rest. Sometimes it works better than others, it all depends on humidity and which way the wind blows. I find that east-to-west rides are the best for getting that full, vaguely permed—but not too ’80s—look that I love.
