Mixfit V2 – Review 2021

As someone who has maintained a plant-based diet for the past eight years, it’s important that I pay attention to whether I’m getting all the vitamins and minerals I need from what I eat, and using supplements to fill in any nutritional gaps. So when I heard about the $180 Mixfit V2, a Keurig-like smart kitchen appliance that blends up personalized nutrition drinks, I was intrigued. The Mixfit combines 23 essential nutrients in drinks that aim to help you fill in the gaps in your diet and meet your health goals. You use an app to specify your goals, log your daily food intake, and connect a compatible fitness tracker to monitor your activity levels. Based on this data, an algorithm identifies the nutrients your body is lacking, and creates a drink to give you what you need.

While I really like Mixfit’s goal to deliver personalized nutrition on a

From Harper’s BAZAAR

After working in the fashion industry for 11 years, Akram Abdulla was finally ready to design for the women he knows best. The founder and designer of Sahar New York, a new line of everyday and formal hijabs, launched the brand in late 2019, just before the pandemic—but that hasn’t slowed him down.

A mix of essential and specialty hijabs, Sahar New York offers clients a range of scarves in simple fabrications and colors, from neutrals and pastels to bold hues. The brand encourages its clientele to play with color, dress boldly, and consider the hijab as one accessory of many.

The People Who Created Facebook & YouTube Are Sorry

I’ve always been suspicious of what I consider tech alarmism. You know: dire headlines about how our phones are giving us all insomnia, deteriorating our ability to connect IRL, tanking our self-esteems, and maybe ruining our skin, too.Once COVID-19 hit, I even felt grateful for my access to technology. Email, Google, Slack, Zoom, Twitter, Instagram, iMessage, Whatsapp, TikTok, Reddit, Libby, YouTube. Those are some of the tools that help me do my job, stay in touch with friends, relax before bed, and work out. Then I watched a screener of The Social Dilemma, Netflix’s new documentary about the more hidden, extremely serious consequences of our social media use. It’s not that it made me feel guilty about my reliance on tech, more like, it made me sick to my stomach — and scared for the world.The documentary, which will be
