NARS Behave Blush Review & Swatches

Behave NARS Behave Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-opaque to opaque (two layers). The texture was smooth to the touch but slightly thinner, and while it didn’t darken too much when applied on bare skin, I would recommend applying it over more matte skin (as opposed to dewy skin or dewy bases!) to avoid the color deepenin...

What do you like about skincare sets? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Skincare Sets I like sets that offer smaller sizes with a few coordinating products, so you can have a good trial of a particular brand or line without splashing out for full-sizes, but they have to be large enough to be used for at least a couple of weeks. Sometimes sets seem like they include products that are more niche/user-dependent, so while it adds value, it doesn’t always add value to me. — Christine ...

Pasta with Kale and White Beans

This is one of our favorite meals which we usually eat over the winter months. This time we used a special German heirloom kale variety called ‘Lippische Palme‘.

Serving Size: 4 Ingredients: 8 ounces pasta, we used whole wheat penne 1 bunch 14 ounce kale 2 tablespoons cooking oil 1 red bell pepper, de-seeded and cut in bite sized pieces 1 medium onion 2 cl...

Making Sense of Infinite Possibilities

You could say that one reason we can make simple decisions each day with relative ease is that we only have a handful of options to choose from, and that makes it easier to make a reasonably good choice. For instance, if you only have so much food in your home, or so many stores and restaurants within reach, then you may find it easier to decide what to eat each day. You don’t have to consider infinite options. You narrow your focus to what’s most accessible. But what about making bigger l...

For the Love of Spice!

I'm quite sure most fragrance lovers recall the moment they were first entranced by a specific scent, and by that I mean of the manufactured variety. Sure, there were hundreds of interesting smells around, growing up: How does this big yellow thing they're shoving on my tongue manage to make me make a sour face (of course!) smell, really? How can smoke be good, when you know it's signaling a fi... Read full article: For the Love of Spice! from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

Podcast #579: Jack London’s Literary Code

The literature of Jack London has long been given the short shrift by scholars. They say he wrote some good dog stories for boys, but beyond that didn’t showcase any literary genius or high-level craftsmanship. Well, my guest today begs to differ with this assessment.  His name is Earle Labor. He’s the preeminent Jack London scholar and 91 years young. I’ve had Earle on the podcast two previous times: the first to discuss his landmark Jack London biography, and the second to discuss his own m...

Natasha Denona Love Glow Cheek Palette is a limited edition and stunning new Spring 2020 blush and highlighter palette that’s a following up to the Bloom Blush & Glow Palette that launched last March.

It's Been 10 Years Since These Memorable Oscar Beauty Looks Graced the Red Carpet

It's hard to believe that 2010 was already 10 years ago. And though so many trends have gone in and out of style since then - we've since welcomed back high-waisted jeans and said goodbye to feather clip-in extensions - rosy cheeks and glossy nude lips have stayed current and trendy. No event exemplified that more than the 2010 Academy Awards. Hollywood superstars like Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, and so many more put their own take on the fresh-faced look for the red carpet, a...
