Girl Power

Words by Michael Nied   Pop music was overwhelming defined by men in 2017. After a summer dominated by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito” and Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” it was not until September that women like Taylor Swift and Cardi B found love in the charts. This became increasingly evident when the nominees were announced for the 2017 American Music Awards.

Nice Outfit

Words by Kathryn Monsewicz   If you’ve ever thrown on layers of clothes for the sole purpose of hiding from the world, you’re not alone.

A Touch That Tells

Words by Kathryn Monsewicz   Have you ever felt raindrops on your shoulder? In the middle of sunshine without clouds? And you just know there’s a rainbow waiting at the end of it all? What about a snowflake, swirling in the wintry breeze, settling into place on the tip of your tongue? That tiny, cold burst that melts on impact, your mouth warming it up, later to be chased down by a cup of hot cocoa sitting in front of a cozy fire? How about a mountain of old clothes you never wear come tumbling down on top of...
