Can Beauty Change The Face Of Homelessness?

Shirley Raines isn’t your typical beauty influencer. The 51-year-old mother of six, who’s worked as a medical biller in Long Beach, California for two decades, only started her Instagram account two years ago. But in the past six months, she’s racked up more than 20,000 followers, a prestigious award from the iconic Bronner Bros beauty show, and devoted fans that send her packages weekly. Unlike most bloggers, Raines isn’t hawking hair gummies or reviewing new products. Instead, she takes to so...

Sunday Firesides: Run at the Wall

Our family recently decided to move from reading different picture books to each of the kids at night, to reading chapter books aloud as a family. We chose as our first book, or really, book series, the Harry Potter collection. As none of us had ever read the books or seen the movies, it’s been fun to finally get to know this famous world of wizarding. One scene in The Sorcerer’s Stone particularly struck me: Harry is about to embark for the first time to attend Hogwarts, and must board the tr...

ColourPop Between the Sheets Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Between the Sheets Colour Pop Between the Sheets Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a drier, more clay-like texture that was less emollient, which I found made it harder to pick up with a brush as well as with a fingertip–the latter being the only manageable way to apply it decently. The color went on with semi-sheer color payoff when I applied with my fingertips, which I was able to build to about medium...

5 Changes Your Body Goes Through After Turning 60

With Mother’s Day around the corner, my mother and I got together to spend some quality time. Seeing that we work so much, and we stay in two different towns, we hardly get to see each other. After catching up, we went to have lunch together so we could talk. After telling her about my aches and pains since turning 40, she just said wait until the 60s come calling. After she was giving me the low down on how the body changes, it was kind of scary. When we arrived back at my mom’s house, we tal...

Tom Ford Double Indemnity Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Double Indemnity (05) Tom Ford Beauty Double Indemnity (05) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, permanent quad that features a pale white, faded green, taupe, and sparkly black. There was a nice amount of contrast between light and dark, though those who are serious about having at least one matte will be less enthused that all four shades have shimmer to them with the sparkly black having the least shimmer. The eyeshadows were pigmented, smooth, blendable, and easy to work ...

Bite Beauty Toronto & Chicago Amuse Bouche Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Toronto Bite Beauty Toronto Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had intense color payoff that adhered well to lips with smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The texture was lightly creamy, dense without being thick or too firm in the tube, and was comfortable to apply and to wear. It stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn. Top Dupes Formula ...

Lights, Camera, No Action In Georgia: Hollywood Fights The State’s Abortion Law

Georgia spoiled more than a few peaches with its controversial new abortion law, and now Hollywood is clapping back — but perhaps a bit softer and slower than what you would expect, especially after how vocal it was about boycotting the state following Democrat Stacey Abrams’ unsuccessful run for governor.Georgia has become a go-to production destination for the film and TV industry, with shows such as The Walking Dead and blockbuster movies like Avengers: Endgame among those filmed there.

Can we pause for a moment and try and take stock of Mohammad Nabi’s ridiculous career?

Mohammed Nabi (via YouTube) Mohammad Nabi didn’t play for Afghanistan against Scotland yesterday. Nothing too unusual there. Nabi has been at the IPL, playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad, and they’d qualified for the closing stages. Except it is unusual. It’s highly unusual. This was Afghanistan’s 112th one-day international (ODI) and Mohammed Nabi played in all of the first 111. Every single one. The IPL has gone well Nabi took eight wickets in eight games at the IPL and t...

Sudden Change in Sexual Appetite

Me and my girlfriend have been dating for more than 9 months. We first had sex after three weeks of dating, and she asked me to have sex with her. When we had been dating for three months, she slowly started not wanting to have sex, and I even went a whole month without sex. She started taking birth control pills at the three month mark, so this might be why she acts like this. But upon talking to her about it, she says that she loves thinking sexual thoughts and fantasizing about me, but when i...

The age of rage: are we really living in angrier times?

In a world in which populists whip up anger that spreads on social media, it’s easy to conclude we have never been more furiousIt’s a standard observation that the world is getting angrier – but the truth is that taking the emotional temperature of an entire era is a mug’s game. For one thing, it’s almost impossible to get the necessary historical perspective: road rage, for example, feels like a modern phenomenon, until you learn that in 1817, Lord Byron was reported to the police for deliverin...

Curated links for your weekend reading: Be Wiersbe I’m telling you this because I think Jesus needs less empty suits and more Wiersbes. Warren wasn’t flashy, and he wasn’t about himself. He was real—what the kids call “authentic”—and he was funny. He knew who he was, and he loved Jesus in his normal, ordinary way. Warren was a very human saint, which is the best kind of saint. I didn’t appreciate that enough when I first met him, but I do now. How an Obscure Dutch Historian Helped Me Un...
