My roommate Elka swears by it! I got her into it because I truly LOVE the taste, but I was having issues balancing hormones and I know Maca is known to balance them, and in effort to stick to one control variable I stopped Maca (long story that you dont even need sorry I talk too much) BUT - I personally LOVE the taste so why not. Elka says it helps with her migraines! 

TIME TO POUR ONE OUT FOR ALL THE BASIC BROS I MISTOOK FOR AN ALT BRO..

Today my non basic DJ friend who’s also a DREAM BOAT (shoutout Austin Millz) send me this amazing Complex break down of how to know you’re a basic bro.

I will tell you that although I did not go to high school with this caliber of bro (they were all rocking Jordans and listening to Lil Wayne) I definitely encountered my fair share in my small, private, pseudo art school quasi liberal arts university and it was rough! In my adulthood on the beautiful island of Manhattan, in my quest for the perfect alt bro I encounter these sad sacks ALL-THE-TIME. And it’s time they are called OUT.

I’ll let you all browse the article for yourself HERE, but I want to point out #3, #5, #7, #9, #10, and #11.

A few specifics that really resonated with me (sadly) - 

You call women “broads.”  - That shit was cool in 9th grade. How old are you????

"Basic bros hate being alone and thrive in environments where they are surrounded by men who look exactly like them." - This is the main difference between an alt bro and a basic bro. Basic bros can NOT and will not plan for themselves. Leave a pre game? Go to a GAY BAR?! *GASP*…Visit a club with a girl A L O N E? Go to an artsy/edgy location (read: any bar that doesn’t play top 40) …All of the mentioned will terrify a basic bro! 

And number 7 is the absolute biggest disgrace in the universe. Grow up. YOU WILL NEVER BAG A BAD BITCH. YEAH I JUST USED BAD BITCH, NEVER CALLED MYSELF A FEMINIST YA’LL.

SMH….It’s sad that I mistake some of ya’ll for alt bros…

New York or Los Angeles? I know you live in NYC now (btw, you're doing a fabulous job in regards to fashion/social media) but would you ever consider living in LA? Additionally, your blog and Instagram inspire me to become a healthier person! I definitely look up to you and thank you for the inspiration. X

Aww thank you so much! That’s really sweet of you. I have never been to the West Coast so it might be unfair for me to judge BUT I despise driving more than anything in the world and my whole family is here. Someday maybe, but it’s unlikely :)

ALT BROS FEEL SOME TYPA WAY ABOUT #NORMCORE

When I asked my Alt Bro bb’s how they felt about the #Normcore movement, it was kind of..presh! I waited a bit because A. I’m lazy and B. I had to give ‘em a chance, you know normcore may be dated to us internet babes but they’re bros! They’re smoking blunts and blacking out at sports bars in all reality. So I had to give it some time to make some traction. I didn’t want to put ‘em in a box so I simply asked

"How do you feel about #normcore?"

ALT BRO#1: I have no thoughts - Normcore has not hit my realm yet.

ALT BRO #2: #beennormcore - outside of twitterverse and fashion blogs no one really knows about norm core besides our dads because they just read the article in the NY Times and now feel a weird sense of self worth for being inadvertent trendsetters.. i think normcore is cool as long as it subtle, who doesnt want to look like a tourist? all tan everything. i hope normcore transcends and the mid to late 90s come back in full force - nautica jackets, clunky white nikes, pleated khakis etc

ALT BRO #3: I had to google normcore because I actually have never heard of it and I’m not fashionably in tune with trends and whatnot. From what I’ve gathered seems like it’s a bland style…. Cool, whatever, not gonna get my panties in a bunch if someone can rock it. Probly wouldn’t think twice if they can’t. Fashion ain’t my strongpoint, I know it, so I stay away from judging it. My words of wisdom would just be, if you like it and think it looks good on you, Go ahead. Be my guest.
