So I had this fun idea of having two members of our editorial team duke it out over which cut of a t-shirt is better — crew neck or v-neck. A quickly realized this was not possible as our entire edit team is Team Crew Neck. I started asking around outside our edit team, to my friends, family, strangers in the street, the local bodega guy, only to find they were also all very much on Team Crew Neck.
Growing up, I was surrounded by women: I’m from an all-woman family (me, my Mum, my two sisters), and I went to a small, all-women school in rural England.
Less than a decade later I was working in Silicon Valley, managing some of Facebook’s most sensitive product policies. While I worked with many strong, amazing women in Silicon Valley, I was ultimately in an area and an industry dominated by men. I had to re-learn how to use my voice, and learn how to lead in an industry that embraces traditionally masculine ways of work and communication, without sacrificing my feminine strength.
Here are some of the most important things I learned.

“Way before green juices became an acceptable beverage choice Carla Oates was in her kitchen fermenting foods and creating probiotics to try and find a solution to her daughter’s skin allergies. That solution was The Beauty Chef’s Glow Powder, the cult ingestible beauty product with 24 lacto-fermented superfoods – a product that graces the beauty shelves of every single beauty editor in Australia, and is their not-so-secret secret to clear, glowing skin. A former beauty journalist for an Aussie national newspaper, Carla combines her thirst for research and passion for natural beauty solutions to create innovative products that don’t just disrupt the market – they create it. If I sound like a crazed fangirl, you’re mistaken – I basically run the Glow cult. Not only did it change my digestion – and skin – forever, it’s the number one product I recommend to everyone I meet. Just ask Veronica, and her newfound addiction to the stuff. Read on to hear about the wellness life of this Aussie dream girl.” – Sarah Tarca
