What are your tips for resisting new beauty products?

1.) Figure out if you can dupe it, whether that’s very similar shades that you already own or by layering two or three products together or just recreating a theme/vibe with what you own. 2.) Be aware of your goals and how giving in might make those harder to achieve. 3.) Push pause and give... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Love Stories: Max Factor's Liaisons and Worth's Fragrant Messages

Much like the infamous sequence of love letters by the brand of Worth, from which only one survives in current production, Je reviens, the idea of a story told in fragrance names is a very romantic one. In the early 20th century, times when social media was but a dystopian fantasy and telephone calls considered too modern and vulgar (if only people knew then what we know now...), the communication...

Sunday Firesides: Push Back From the Table

At the start of the holidays the first plates of cookies, treat-laden gift baskets, and big special meals are delicious. Yet by New Year’s Day, with your pants tighter and your body bloated, you find yourself craving . . . a simple salad. Researchers speculate that the reason we have trouble controlling our consumption of fat- and sugar-laden foods, is that in primitive times, our next meal was never guaranteed, so it paid to overindulge. That makes sense. Yet it equally makes sense that once ...

Xmas leftovers Part I: The Strange Hinterland of Vinceness

For one reason or another, a piece sometimes falls by the wayside - inbetween commissioning and arrival, things shift and the spike is inserted. I've had a couple this year, so thought I'd throw them up here. The first was written around the start of the World Cup. It's about James Vince and the predicament of being England's spare man. Ultimately, he hed the fort and played his part, so here's to the great JV...   Ah, James Vince. A breathy sigh across the face of the ga...

5 New Year’s resolutions from the poz community for a year of self-care & great health

It’s December, which means we’ve just celebrated World AIDS Day and we’re soon to celebrate New Year’s Eve. So instead of a list of pie-in-the-sky New Year’s resolutions, which most of us will forget come February, we’re turning toward the poz community for the bare-bones, ninja-level self-care plan for 2020. If you haven’t noticed, people with HIV tend to regard health and well-being very seriously. Self-care has become such an art form the life span of those living with HIV has consistently ri...

"Plenty of women do the work of sex work without trading sex for money or capital. The work of sexual entertaining..."

"... as well as the many emotional labors of sex work. Every woman is expected or pressured in heterosexuality to do the labor that sex workers do, but not every woman is a sex worker. I think sex workers are strangely more equipped, though, to ponder the problem of romance, because we sell sex and love as our job, and have this strange distance and closeness with the theater of gender relations... Sex can be a vehicle for self-expression and it can be a theater; sex doesn’t have to be serious, ...

Do I have HOCD?

From a teen in the U.S. :So, recently, I’ve been having doubts about my sexuality. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t tell if I’m just obsessing over it or if I’m in denial. I’m 19 years old, and I have a beautiful girlfriend who I love very much. The thoughts started about a month ago, and it hasn’t gotten any better. It’s like my mind just keeps repeating the words “am I gay?” Over and over. The thing is, I know deep down that I’m straight, but my mind just keeps making me think I’m not. H...
