Supreme Court grants marriage equality in all 50 states

By Jessica Broverman, Editor

As of Friday, June 26 2015, it is now legal for all Americans, no matter what their sexual orientation or gender, to marry the person they love.

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 on Friday morning that this law be instated in all 50 states. The law is listed under the 14th Amendment and cites that couples will receive equal protection and due process.

Extending the right to marry protects families and “without the recognition, stability, and predictability marriage offers, children suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser,” the justices wrote this morning.

Why you should keep your beauty au naturel

By Jessica Broverman, Editor

We have all gone to certain lengths for our appearance. Whether it be getting a haircut or applying makeup every day, we all have been there. This not only is a part of how we as a society view beauty, but also how we see our personal beauty due to the media. It is far more of an advantage to embrace our natural beauty, rather than change it.

A large concern that should be taken into consideration is the fact that we are destroying our skin, hair, pores and many other parts of our bodies with harsh chemicals. Have you ever looked at the ingredients for your favorite concealer or that fantastic smelling conditioner? Those beauty products contain all sorts of chemicals.
