When was the last time you were excited about cleaning? Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry, the founders of locally-based Method, are attempting to change that feeling by transforming mundane necessities like laundry detergent and hand soap into designer commodities. More
Free Flowing Environment with a Full Body/Soul Experience
By Nirmala Nataraj (Sep 10, 2004)
Editorial Note: One Taste Urban Retreat Center no longer provides spa or massage type services.


One Taste's upstairs lounge area is packed with a dozen Bay Area massage therapists and a slew of customers who are eagerly waiting to sample a sumptuous array of massage styles, from reiki to traditional deep tissue. At first, it's an odd semblance of a massage studio. With people lounging on velvet cushions and yoga mats, there isn't a clear line of people for the massage therapists, who seem to be going in 10-15 minute spates. More

It seems as though everyone's taking a ride on the yoga train these days. Rodney Yee is nearly a household name, celebrities, like Madonna and Sting, swear by it, even my skeptical boyfriend has a Yoga for Dummies DVD. As the ancient practice for self-awareness gains ever-increasing popularity, the places and ways to practice grow in numbers as well. Yoga means something different to each person and whether it's a spiritual journey, a designated chill-out time necessary for your sanity or simply a strengthening and energizing workout, San Francisco is the place to find the studio that fits your needs... More
A Cruelty Free Make Over
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 19, 2004)
Alternative cosmetics have recently pegged a finger on the pulse of beauty culture. Take Urban Decay, for instance; the trend-setting cosmetics company famous for color names inspired by the sordid realities of urbania (Roach, Smog, Rust, Oil Slick and Acid Rain) has flouted the puke-perfect priss of conventional makeup lines for years. Then there's Real Cosmetics, the pioneering company launched by Lubna Khalid that addresses the absence of products catering to ethnic skin... More
Coke Bottle Charm
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 19, 2004)
Remember when glasses actually became cool? When coke bottles gracefully converted to frameless lightweights, and four eyes morphed into the brainy ovals of the fashion model turned executive? Certainly, while glasses have given sophomoric parodies of the socially maladjusted (think "Revenge of the Nerds") their retribution, I still consider them the perfect fashion accessory for formerly affronted youngsters. I fondly remember my own transition from telescopic foci to tortoiseshell chic (in the incarnation of stylish Modo frames)... More

A massage is the apex of luxury. What could be more extravagant than soaking in the warm oils of a Swedish treatment and sinking into the bliss of an herbal mud bath after a good hour of deep tissue kneading? Moreover, the spa experience is about wellness and the synergistic mystery of relaxation and their effects on the beleaguered body More
Fresh Gets Fresher
By Amy Sherman (Aug 15, 2004)
LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics bath and body shop has taken the concept of fresh to the extreme by featuring many vegan products, mostly organic ingredients, no animal testing, recyclable containers and everything made by hand. They even have a refrigerated section of "bio-fresh" products. More
Oh, the hard life
By Nirmala Nataraj (Nov 1, 2003)
In a city teeming with glamour and the trappings of the image-oriented, havens for the beautiful are around every corner. Customized for every need imaginable from those of the no-nonsense executive with little time for extended periods of luxury to those of the penniless college student scrimmaging for the perfect facial, there's certainly a beauty spa for everyone. Ranging from lavish hangouts for debutantes and movie stars to hip and practical stopovers for those on the go, San Francisco is full of unique options for exfoliating and beyond. More
