Brain fog, dryness: This OB/GYN wants to normalize menopause

A few days after Dr. Jen Gunter learned that she’d made the New York Times bestseller list with her new book “The Menopause Manifesto: Own Your Health With Facts and Feminism” ($18.95; Kensington Books), the obstetrician and gynecologist was back on Twitter and Substack discussing poop, dispelling myths about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy and weighing in on Naomi Wolf and Christiane Northrup’s ban from social media after they were accused of distributing misinformation about vaccines.

Gunter, who is known to her 340,000 or so Twitter followers as its resident gynecologist, has always been unabashed

Peter Do Announces His First New York Fashion Week Runway Show

Our show will be a hybrid of digital and IRL, blurring the line between what is real and what is not. There is a duality in the nature of all our processes and we are always pushing the boundaries of the liminal space that exists between the digital world and real life. It’s always been very important for us to have offline moments as a family even though the brand was built on the internet. We’ve made so many memories watching old shows together and dreaming of one day creating one ourselves. 

This show is an opportunity for us to

Sustainability in fashion | CBI

The fashion industry is a big culprit when it comes to sustainability. 114 billion items of clothing were sold in 2019. More than 70% ends up in landfill or incinerators. About 8% of global greenhouse gases are emitted each year by the apparel and footwear industries. And, as for a figure everyone can probably relate to, on average, we don’t wear 30% of what we own.

Social fashion rental app, By Rotation, wants to change that.

Founder Eshita Kabra-Davies refers to the platform as the Airbnb of contemporary and designer fashion, through which users can lend and rent items of

Grass-fed beef not best source of omega-3 fatty acid | Lifestyles

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a question about omega-3 fatty acid intake, either through fish consumption or by dietary supplements like fish oil. Apparently, many American diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. One possible reason is that most American beef cattle are fed primarily on corn rather than their natural diet of grass, leading to meat that is low in omega-3. Most arguments for increasing omega-3 fatty acid intake seem to be related to cardiac health. But omega-3 fatty acids are also important for brain health. I’m wondering specifically if there might be a correlation between these dietary-induced low

Summer Dresses and Boot Outfits to Test Out This Summer

Sandal season is in full force, but some of the most stylish stars are zigging while everyone else is zagging. Instead of the tried-and-true sandal/dress combo, summer dresses and boot outfits have been populating street style images. Turns out, there’s no need to wait until fall to wear those combat boots.

Just a day ago, Lily Aldridge posted a picture on Instagram showing off a beautiful floral Dôen dress and a pair of classic tan suede ankle boots. Fellow model Adut Akech seems to love the contrast, too. Her interpretation of the winning outfit included a red mini dress and

23 fine jewelry that’s worth the splurge


There are certain items that have an intrinsically low cost per wear — like, say, your favorite pair of workout sneakers, or the tote bag you never leave home without. But jewelry isn’t too far down the list: Save for a few special occasions, most people wear the same necklaces, bracelets or earrings day in and day out, making it easier to stomach a high price tag.

“I tend to splurge on items I know I’ll get my money’s worth for,” says Alyssa Coscarelli, a brand consultant and fashion influencer. “And sometimes, if I can easily picture

For Christina McCann, shopping at the mall involves sifting through the women’s and the men’s aisles in search of the perfect outfit.

McCann, who is nonbinary, often starts out by perusing dresses, which tend to be a better fit for a female body type. Then, McCann will shift to the men’s side of a store to pick out more masculine items: combat boots, oversized tees and sweatpants. McCann, who uses the gender-neutral

Opportunity knocks for unlikely quartet in Paris

After a wildly unpredictable women’s singles at the French Open, four Grand Slam semi-final debutants will line up on Thursday with a golden opportunity knocking.

Not since the 1978 Australian Open have a quartet of players reached the semis of a women’s Grand Slam for the first time.

Chris O’Neil, ranked 111 in the world, won the title on that occasion although it was a relatively weak field with few of the top players even bothering to play the event.

The same cannot be said this year and whoever out of Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Slovenia’s Tamara Zidansek, Czech Barbora Krejcikova
