How I Honor My Japanese Culture as a Vegan

I've been stealing cold, plain tofu cubes from my mom's cutting board since I could reach the counter. Soy and I have a bit of a love affair. So when I decided to go vegan two years ago, I thought it would be as simple as substituting the meat for tofu in all of my mom's traditional Japanese dishes. Food has always connected me to my culture, and I wanted to preserve that part of my heritage, even if I were avoiding animal products. This proved to be harder than I imagined.

Monday Haircare, Monday Born, Sunday Riley, Sunday 2 Sunday, Saturday Skin, Summer Fridays — there are more than a handful of beauty brands named after the days of the week, and most of them have popped up in just the last few years. While we put a lot of thought into our location in the week — routinely using phrases like "Sunday Scaries," "Sunday Funday," "Monday Blues," and "Happy Hump Day" — the idea of naming a brand that sells makeup, hair, or skin-care products after that fact feels a bit more random.

Christina Clemons Qualifying For the Olympics While Wearing Doritos Earrings Is Simply Iconic

Christina Clemons earned two new titles this weekend: first-time Olympian and internet-adored fashion icon.

The kitschy accessories were shaped like teeny-tiny bags of old-school Cool Ranch Doritos, and Christina chose to wear them because, as she later explained on Instagram Stories, she herself is "shaped like a Dorito."
