Deal of the Day:

DC-based artist Ani Bradberry is selling industrial-inspired accessories that are perfect for all the feminists in your life. Bradberry primarily works in neon, industrial, and natural materials so this line is a reflection her intention to make our relationship with mass production and industry a tangible object. The jewelry serves as a form of resistance and power while the neon lamps are monuments to contemplation. She states, "The act of constructing a wearable item as a badge of agency allows me and the wearers to regain control over the overwhelming presence of mass-production in contemporary life within global capitalism."

Advice of the Day:

"If you don’t take the time to think about or analyze your life, you’ll never realize all the dots that are all connected."- Beyoncé
