5 Newly Released CBD Beauty Products Your Skincare Routine Desperately Needs

August 15, 2020

Between the social justice revolution and the pandemic, there’s a lot going on in the world right now—and you may find it difficult to embrace me-time.

But it’s not just our minds and bodies that need to decompress—our skin does, too! Typically, when something like CBD comes to mind, we’re thinking about our mental state. But the powerful ingredient does wonders for our skin as well, which is why we’re excited to bring you a handful of new innovations in the CBD beauty space.

Because you deserve it, treat yourself to one (or all) of the five brand new CBD beauty products below. From body creams to oils, these items should help you (and your stressed-out skin) relax to the max.

1. The Feelist’s Do Not Disturb Extra Strength Body Cream

Entrepreneur and digital industry leader Shea Marie is the brains behind The Feelist. Her line of plant-powered skincare is set out to pamper you when you need it most. There are two different creams and oils, along with a salt soak in this line. Every product is of interest, though the Do Not Disturb Extra Strength Body Cream really caught our attention. With 500 milligrams of broad spectrum CBD, this cream should aid in getting rid of aches and pains in your body.

2. Veritas Beauty’s Cucumber Eye Cream

Veritas Beauty is a CBD skincare line created by Veritas Farms, which is already well-known for their impeccable CBD products. Now, they’ve moved into the beauty industry. Veritas Beauty comes packed with a variety of products, including Rejuvenating Night Cream, Cucumber Eye Cream, Mattifying Blemish Cream and Hyaluronic Day Cream. The great thing is you can purchase them all in a handy-dandy kit. Though if your budget only allows for one, we’d opt for the Cucumber Eye Cream. A good eye cream is harder to come by than you’d think, so having this one in your skincare arsenal will make a world of difference.

3. Philip B’s CBD Scalp + Body Oil

Philip B is one of our all-time favorite haircare companies, so we jumped at the chance to snatch up their CBD Scalp + Body Oil when it was released. Your scalp needs more love than you give it. We’re all so guilty of trying to undo years of damage to our tresses that we forget about our scalp. Featuring 100 milligrams of CBD and 25 milligrams of CBG, this scalp and body oil moisturizes your skin to reduce redness brought on by environmental stressors. It really is one of the most soothing oils on the market, so your skin will thank you for using it.

4. MyCHELLE Dermaceutical’s Enhancing CBD Rinse-Free Wash

MyCHELLE Dermaceutical’s released a new line of CBD skincare products that features a serum, lotion, lip balm, and… wait for it… a CBD Rinse-Free Wash. What is a rinse-free wash? Instead of having to splash your face with water, you can put this product on a cotton pad, swipe it all over your complexion, and you’re good to go. The CBD in this is aimed at hydrating and softening your skin, which is something we’ve been having trouble maintaining during quarantine.

5. WLDKAT’s CBD 50MG Cupuacu + Mango Butter Lip Balm

WLDKAT is a clean, vegan, sustainable, and cruelty-free brand that also happens to be “femxle founded and fronted.” Their packaging is bright and in your face, but in the best way possible. We’re particularly fascinated by their butter lip balm. Containing 50 milligrams of CBD, cupuacu and mango butter, these balms should keep your lips hydrated for hours on end.

Wondering if CBD can help you get better sleep? HERE’S what happened when we tried it!

August 11, 2020

We’ve grown incredibly attached to TikTok during quarantine. Specifically, we’ve developed a close bond with some Los Angeles TikTokers.

Their content covers everything we love and loathe about the city we call home. From their personal adventures to the most scene-y L.A. destinations to the inside scoop on the people who live here, these local TikTokers do not hold back.

So, if you’ve ever wanted a real glimpse into L.A. life, the three TikTokers below are who you need to follow.

1. @itsmetinx

Tinx is the whole reason we even got the idea for this roundup, so we have to give a huge shoutout to her. As the self-proclaimed “oldest girl on TikTok” who lives in Los Angeles, she may be our favorite of all the TikTokers in our town. We love watching her daily trips to Erewhon and fancy dinners at the trendiest L.A. hotspots—all through her microvlogs, which we absolutely need more of. Tinx also dishes on the latest celebrity gossip in a way that’s refreshingly insightful. So follow her ASAP, because she’s about as real as it gets in L.A. (for better or worse!).

Your next vintage shopping experience will be the best one yet after you follow her tips.

3. @taliatalksalot

This is arguably one of the most accurate @’s out there. Talia talks a lot, it’s true, but it’s so worth it. She isn’t afraid to share her unbiased opinions about the most popular L.A. restaurants and roast some iconic L.A. Instagram spots. You don’t really know anything about The City of Angels until you hear Talia’s take on it. Her accuracy about the city’s locations (*cough* The Valley) will give you insight you didn’t know you needed. L.A. isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but Talia could tell you that.

I Started Dating My Boyfriend a Month Before Coronavirus—Here’s How We’re Dealing

April 1, 2020

In the wise words of Avril Lavigne, “He was a boy. She was a girl. Can I make it anymore obvious?”

And that about sums up the story of my boyfriend and me.

Prior to being a couple, we’d been friends for years. We met at a concert way back in 2012/2013, which should not come as a shock to those of you that know me. What’s even less shocking is he was in a band at the time.

We kept in touch here and there. But it wasn’t until 2017 we became really good friends. We texted regularly and I’d go to his shows as often as possible.

There was a point in 2019 when I could sense he had deeper feelings for me, though I was very scared of this being anything more than what it was. I have a terrible track record when it comes to dating. In fact, he’s my first “official” boyfriend, so there’s that. Still, I always wondered, “What if?”

Then 2020 rolled around and we started hanging out constantly, so much so that I knew I couldn’t be just friends with him. In late January, we finally kissed and the rest is history.

I know that was a lot of lead-up, but it had to be done. I’m trying to paint a full picture here, alright?

Anyway, back to my relationship. Things have been going really well. In February, I was gone for two weeks on a solo trip through New Zealand (yes, it was magical), and we stayed in touch every single day. He even drove me to and from the airport. That might not seem like a big deal, but I have been with many guys who wouldn’t drive over to my house to hook-up, because they were too lazy. So yes, my boyfriend’s a gem.

Those two weeks away were really tough. Even though I was having the time of my life exploring the north island of New Zealand, I missed him so much. I don’t think it helped that we had finally expressed our feelings, only to have me jet set across the world a week after the fact.

Once I returned, we were pretty much inseparable. We hung out as often as possible, texted, and chatted on the phone whenever we could. So when the coronavirus really started to make its way around the states, we had to decide the safest social-distancing measures for our new relationship.

At first, I stayed with him at his place, as to prevent my anxious thoughts surrounding the pandemic from spiraling, and to also be with him. But, some members of his household were still working, as they were deemed essential. This is when we made the difficult decision to physically stay apart until it was safe to see each other once again.

I was the one to initiate the plan, and while he agreed it was for the best, I know he wasn’t happy with it. It’s not that I was either, it’s the safest thing to do right now.

That was about a week and a half ago, and boy do I miss not seeing him in person regularly. Our time spent apart while I was in New Zealand was nothing compared to this. Obviously, what made those two weeks easier was how far apart we were and a set date on when we would see each other again.

Social-distancing during corona is tough, given we’re not that far from one another and we don’t know when we won’t need to be quarantined anymore. It could be days, weeks, months, years—who knows?

During this time, we’re staying in touch a lot more through technology. I literally just paused writing this for a sec to respond to his text and Instagram DM. We also make it a point to talk on the phone or over FaceTime at least once a day.

Some days are way easier than others. There have been times where either he or I want to ignore this whole quarantine protocol so we can see one other, but we both know that’s not what we need right now. We’re doing our best to fight those urges, so thank goodness technology exists to help with that.

One thing I really find helpful that we do is go on virtual dates. On these virtual dates, we get ready (I’m mainly talking about me, as I’ve been wearing the same sweatpants and sweatshirt combo for over a week now) and enjoy lunch, dinner, or a nice conversation over FaceTime. It honestly is so much fun, though we’ve only done one so far… well, two, if you count… never mind.

I’ve also been making it a point to do cutesy, romantic things here and there. For example, I made him a playlist the other day of songs that reminded me of him or our relationship. Though entirely cheesy, he truly appreciated the gesture.

The rest of my romantic antics have been much simpler, like sending him texts as to why I appreciate him or passing along sweet relationship quotes on Instagram. He’s dong the same, though I still haven’t received my playlist. Babe, if you’re reading this, please send me a collection of songs that remind you of me.

For now, we’re making do with what we have. It helps that I trust him and am very secure in our relationship, which hasn’t been the same with past flings. Still, it’s so tough being separated. I want nothing more than to hold his hand and kiss his cute little face right about now.

What really puts me at ease is knowing where I stand. We’re both pretty open with our feelings and unafraid to share whatever we’re experiencing with one another. Communication is always key in any relationship, but moreso now than ever before.

This has really pushed me out of my comfort zone, especially given all my past relationships have centered around sex, so I never felt entirely comfortable sharing my feelings with the person I was seeing at the time. I do now, which has made a world of difference.

For other new couples out there who are struggling by being separated from the coronavirus, I feel your pain. My advice would be to communicate as openly and honestly. Keep the conversations fun and flirty, but don’t be afraid to have serious talks every now and then, too.

Still plan on having date nights, as long as they’re virtual or you can maintain a six foot distance at all times. Do cute, spontaneous things for one another like sending a spontaneous “I love you” text or Venmoing them some money for groceries. Now’s the time to really get creative with showing your partner how much you care.

Quarantine (hopefully) won’t last forever, but you can start building the foundation now to make sure your relationship does.

15 Truths Every South Bay Resident Will Find Too Relatable

June 5, 2018

Living in the South Bay can sometimes be a dream.

You’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach, traffic (for the most part) is nonexistent and you’re about a 15-minute Uber ride to the airport. But the grass is always greener.

Though the South Bay has its perks, there are also plenty of struggles that accompany being a permanent resident of the area. If you happen to live in this part of town, you’ll find the 15 truths below all too relatable—for better or worse!

1. Being so close to the airport, everyone expects you to either pick them up or drop them off. Uber and Lyft exist for a reason, guys.

2. Living within walking distance to the beach is so nice, except you never have any time to go. And when you finally decide to venture out there, it’s always way too crowded or the temperature is at either end of the extreme.

3. Forcing yourself to leave the bubble is a difficult task. While you’d love to hit up a bar in West Hollywood or a ramen spot in Silver Lake, the thought of having to drive all the way out there is a nightmare.

4. Instead, you decide to go out on your side of town. Which is fun, except it’s not. All the bars are filled with the annoying bros and middle-aged women trying to find their second husband. You get over the nightlife real fast.

5. If you don’t play beach volleyball or know how to surf, good luck making friends. That’s all anyone does in the South Bay.

6. You see the same people everywhere. Everyone in the South Bay knows everyone.

7. It feels like it’s always summer, which means your productivity levels don’t exist. When the beach is your backyard, you suddenly become the most laid-back person on the planet.

8. Just about everyone and their grandma is constantly rocking boardshorts and bathing suits all year round.

9. Once you discover your favorite bar, it’s yours forever and no one can take it away from you. You will be there every weekend, till death do you part.

10. There are at least three bartenders who not only know your go-to drink order and how to make it the right way, but also your entire life story. They know every last detail, so keep ’em close.

11. The food options are… interesting, to say the least. Why there’s such an obsession with El Burrito Jr. (aka El BJs), you’ll never understand. But you still go as often as you can.

12. Whenever you hang out with your friends who don’t live in the South Bay, you make sure they come to you. You’re not about to venture anywhere outside of your comfort zone. Plus, your friends always want to hit up the beach anyway, so it works out for everyone.

13. Dating is awful. Every guy is a total bro who only owns Hawaiian shirts and army-print shorts. Fantastic.

14. Those who were born and bred in the South Bay are quick to defend it. Talk a lick of smack about it and you better be prepared to fight—yikes.

15. You might not fully appreciate all the South Bay has to offer, but you couldn’t see yourself living anywhere else. Once you make it your home, you’re stuck there forever. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is on you to figure out.

So whether you’re looking for one-on-one personal styling consultations that’ll help you find exceptional, rare or transformative pieces, or if you’re hoping to sell some of your designer threads, LGS is the place to be.

While LGS offers more upscale items, Urban Air Market is open to those of you looking for more local and sustainable designs.

UAM’s free, one-day event will take place at Los Feliz Village on Hillhurst at Franklin and will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 3. We highly suggest getting there as soon as it opens, because UAM will feature 100 emerging, sustainable brands—including Amanda Sage Collection, Circuit King Classics, Daughters of Culture, Iron Lily and many more. Not to mention, there’ll be live musical performances from by MB3, Ipanema Lounge, Dani W., Jonny Sands, Irish Goodbye and Sylvia Bosco.

And if you get too tired of shopping or aren’t into the live performances, you can participate in activities such as hula hooping, tarot card readings or making DIY keychains, tassel necklaces or buttons. The choice is yours.

Mark your calendars and prepare to shop till you drop, because these are two pop-ups that no fashion savvy individual should miss out on.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Eataly

You live the most fast-paced lifestyle, Aries. You always have a million and one things to do, so you’re always on the go. Rarely will you ever be seen doing nothing of importance, which is why you spend what little free time you have wisely. As far as restaurants go, you need something quick. You generally always order your same, go-to dish, because you know what you want. For you, Eataly is the place to be. This Italian-themed food hall offers up everything from pizza and pasta to gelato and coffee. You can load up on carbs and caffeine, which are pretty much the only things someone like you needs.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): La Boucherie

Oh, you fancy, huh, Taurus? Your life is basically bad and boujee without the bad. You treat yourself whenever you can, because you work ridiculously hard to support your lavish lifestyle. You do you! Obviously, you need to visit a restaurant that lives up to your high standards. That would be none other than five-star steakhouse La Boucherie. You’ll have a grand ol’ time feasting like royalty on steak, seafood or whatever lavish dish your little heart desires. Just be sure to save room for dessert.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Rose Cafe

Curious and adaptable Gemini, you’re always ready to accept all life has to offer. You know there’s so much out there, which is why you’re always exploring and have a long list of things you love. The same goes for food. While you’re willing to try new things, you’ve got a laundry list of favorite dishes that instantly come to mind. A place like Rose Cafe is perfect for you. It has quite the extensive menu with a variety of items to choose from. You’ll want to try one of everything, but always remember that you can visit as many times as you’d like. Not to mention, the scenery is more than perfect for someone as creative as you.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): HomeState

Comfort is what you crave most in life, Cancer. Though you have a tough exterior, you’re more sensitive than you’d like to admit. At any given moment, there’s always something that’s bothering you. This is why you seek solace in things that make you feel at ease. Comfort foods is just one of those things, so HomeState is right up your alley. A Texas-style kitchen in L.A., you’ll feel right at home with the Tex-Mex menu. Be sure to wear your stretchiest sweats on your visit.

Instagram / @homestate

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Yami Yaki

Being the center of attention isn’t for everyone, but it certainly suits you quite nicely, Leo. The second you waltz into a room, everyone’s eyes drift in your direction. It’s safe to say you know a thing or two about being popular. But when you don’t get your way, you’re not the happiest camper. Control is something you so desperately need in your life, and you’ll do anything to have it. You like things a certain way, and naturally, the same goes with your food choices. This is why you should check out Yami Yaki. You’ll have all the control you want, when it comes to throwing together your teriyaki bowl, that is. Pick your meat, veggies and more, then the kind employees will mix it all together for you and serve it to you on a silver platter. No, they won’t, but you get it.

Instagram / @cookwithcourt

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Matsuhisa

Simplicity is your middle name, Virgo. While some may shake their tail feathers for anyone who’s willing to watch, you prefer to stay secluded in the background. You don’t need attention or praise to live a happy life, because you know better than anyone that there’s excess in moderation. Sushi is a food you tend to opt for more often than not, so Matsuhisa is perfect for you. Though the restaurant is innovative and sleek, the chefs let their food do the talking. While they tend to get creative, they also stick with what they know. You’re bound to find a new hand roll to love at this classy establishment.

Instagram / @matsuhisabeverlyhills

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Ramen Hood

You’re what many would refer to as a “people-pleaser,” Libra. Some are quick to scoff at your ways, but there’s really no harm in you wanting to be a friend to all. You’re simply doing your part to make the world a better place, so disregard those haters. With your food choices, you also like things to appease not only you, but whoever you’re with. Ramen is one of those dishes everyone likes, including yourself. Vegan spot Ramen Hood is the next joint you should hit up. Both your vegan and non-vegan friends will find something to devour on the menu, giving you the ability to make sure everyone gets what they want.

Instagram / @ramenhood

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Howlin’ Ray’s

You’re a tough one to figure out, but you sure as heck enjoy leaving people guessing. It’s more than thrilling watching others try to uncover all that lies beneath you, mysterious Scorpio. To say you’re fiery would be an understatement. That’s probably why you’re a fan of spicy foods, and Howlin’ Ray’s makes for your best restaurant. This Nashville-style hot chicken joint speaks to your soul. There are some pretty spicy meats on their menu, but someone like you is sure to enjoy the heat without so much as breaking a sweat.

Instagram / @howlinrays

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): E.P. & L.P.

The most adventurous spirit in the zodiac, you always have your passport and a packed overnight bag ready to go. If one of your friends wants to go on an adventure, you’re more than ready to leave at a moment’s notice. You constantly need to feel like you’re traveling somewhere new, even when you’re not actually leaving the comfort of your own home. For you, E.P. & L.P. is right up your alley. A restaurant and rooftop bar, you’ll be transported to Asia with their blend of Chinese, Fijian and Vietnamese food. And you can take in the stunning sites of West Hollywood from their scenic rooftop. The best of both worlds!

Instagram / @eplosangeles

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Pirolo’s Panino

You’re hardworking as they come, never letting anything or anyone get in the way of achieving the mountain of goals you’ve set for yourself. Fun has its place in your life, but it’s very minimal. What you’re more concerned with is convenience—same goes for food. You’re a busy person with a lot on your plate… metaphorically, of course. You’re a huge fan of sandwiches for this reason. Clearly, sub shop Priolo’s Panino was made for you. With a menu full of delicious and savory sammies, you’re sure to find something you like.

Instagram / @pirolos

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Scratch Bar & Kitchen

There’s no one else out there quite like you, Aquarius. You march to the beat of a far different drum than everyone else, always standing out loud and proud from the crowd. Try saying that three times fast. Your uniqueness translates to the foods you eat, as well. Scratch Bar & Kitchen is the only restaurant that can provide such a fun and different dining experience for someone as eclectic as yourself. Everything on their menu is made from, well, scratch. No two dishes are ever the same.

Instagram / @scratchbarkitchen

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Firefly

You’re someone who simply loves love. Everything about it leaves you feeling all sorts of giddy inside and out, so it’s no surprise that you’re known as the hopeless romantic of the zodiac. When it comes to your dining experience, you want things to be as amorous as possible. It’s not about the food, so much as it’s about the atmosphere. Firefly’s intimate location will provide you with the perfect backdrop for all of your date nights to come. Book your reservation now.

The Substance You Should Take at Coachella, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

April 9, 2017

Unsplash / @ericjamesward

Dust off your headpieces and crop tops, because Coachella is finally here!

This festival has it all—music, art and a ton of people offering up all sorts of drugs for you to try.

Not sure if you should stick with smoking a joint, chugging a beer or going on a wild hallucinogenic trip with shrooms? Scroll below to discover the illicit substance your zodiac sign thinks you should try at the festival.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Adderall

The go-getter of the zodiac, you never show any signs of stopping. Your “live life in the fast lane” attitude gets you in trouble often, but you don’t care. You have no problem charming your way out of the situation. When you’re at Coachella, you’ll be fluttering from place to place, like the busy bee you are. You need a substance that’ll keep you extra energized over the three-day-long festival, and Adderall will do just the trick. Its time-release effect will keep you going strong throughout each day, while still keeping you focused on the acts you want to see. Sounds like a win-win!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Cocaine

As boujee as you are, you need a drug that will satisfy your appetite for the finer things in life. No other illicit substance will do that for you like cocaine. It’s a high-class drug for a high-class individual like yourself. So make like Halsey allegely did below, and treat yourself to a few bumps as you grind up on potential lovers during the performances of your favorite artists at Coachella.

Twitter / @PopCrave

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Weed

Ruled by the twins, this is the reason there are two opposing sides to your character. You can be the life of the party one day, then you’re the most introverted person the next. You definitely need to take something that’ll satiate both halves of your personality. Weed can totally do that for you. You can switch between a Sativa or an Indica for different effects, depending on what you’re feeling. Or you could opt for the best of both worlds by smoking a hybrid. Either way, you’ll be in for one heck of a time at Coachella.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): OxyContin

Though many may not notice it, you have a lot of pent up feelings that you hide away from the outside world. You act tough, but you’re really just one big softy underneath that harsh exterior. You need to feel a lot less of this, especially if you want to thoroughly enjoy all Coachella has to offer. OxyContin makes for the perfect potent substance for you. You won’t feel a single thing. What more could you ask for?

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Molly

Proud Leo, you love, love, love being the center of attention. You crave endless admiration from your peers so badly, that you’re willing to do just about anything for it. We all have our things—constant praise happens to be yours. If you really want to keep your time in the spotlight continuous, taking Molly will work for you. Once the euphoric feeling takes over, you’ll breathe new life into the festival. Everyone will remember you. Everyone.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): None

Being the perfectionist you are, you’re way too innocent and responsible to do any sort of drugs at Coachella. Because of your analytical approach to life, you can’t help but always play it safe. Risk-taking isn’t a term in your vocabulary. But that’s totally fine, because at least you’ll be the one to make sure all of your besties aren’t puking in porta potties or making out with way too many randos.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Lean (Sizzurp)

Libra, oh, Libra. You’re the type of person who’ll be joined at the hip to whomever you’re going to Coachella with—which is actually a great thing, because you tend to be the only person who can keep the peace when it all goes haywire. To add to your calming presence, find yourself sippin’ on some sizzurp to leave you even more tranquil. Ingesting this mix that includes Codeine, Sprite and Jolly Rancher will have you feeling cool as a clam, even when the festival chaos comes out swingin’!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): PCP

You’re a true mystery, Scorpio. Not a single soul has you figured out and you intend on keeping it that way. One thing’s for sure: You’re full of passion and don’t let anything hold you back from following through with your plans. No one is willing to take more risks than you, which is why such a dangerous substance like PCP could only be enjoyed by a Scorpio. It’s wild, but so are you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Shrooms

Free-spirited and adventurous Sagittarius, you’re the first one people call when they want to try something new or go somewhere they’ve never been before, because you’re always down. You’d literally drop whatever you’re doing to take a trip to some far off place. While you can’t always be in a new place every second, tripping on shrooms at Coachella will make you feel like you’re on another planet while you’re listening to musicians perform or checking out the art installations.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Alcohol

Acting a little uptight and controlling at times, you often get a bad rap for being boring and dull. But that’s not the case. You know how to let loose and have a good time, but you definitely set your parameters, of course. This is why gulping down all the alcohol at Coachella would suit your needs best. You’d be able to enjoy yourself, but not too much to the point where others would be worried about your safety. Chug! Chug! Chug!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Ketamine

While you’re known for being the humanitarian of the zodiac, the thought of being surrounded by hordes and hordes of people doesn’t really wet your whistle. You’d much rather spend your days indoors with no one but yourself as your only company. Unfortunately, you paid a ton of money to be at Coachella, so it’d be a waste not to go. You really need something that’ll sedate you, so say hello to Ketamine. You won’t feel at all irritated by the monsters surrounding you, because this drug will keep you in a peaceful trance all weekend long (provided you don’t overdo it and put yourself in a temporarily paralyzing “K-Hole”).

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Xanax

You’re that one friend who constantly puts everyone else’s needs above their own, which is fine and all… until it’s not. Listen, people have their own lives and sometimes they don’t need you to hold their hand through it. Sorry to be blunt, but you had to hear it from somebody. Coachella is time for you to sit back, relax and take a chill pill—aka Xanax. You’ll be able to keep your cool like no other, thanks to this handy-dandy substance.
