Why You Should Stop Buying Jewelry with No Value

While plenty of people pick the right jewelry for purely aesthetic reasons, it is sensible to think about the pieces you select in terms of their investment potential and likelihood to hold their value in the long term. As this is a $300 billion market, the sheer amount of choice can be a pitfall. Here is a look at why opting for designer gold earrings and other high end jewelry is actually a lot more sensible than saving some cash and settling for products that won’t be worth anything ...

Sunday Firesides: Put Your Loves in Order

Saint Augustine defined sin as disordered love: giving one’s heart too much to things which are not worthy of it, and too little to that which is. Virtue, conversely, he defined as rightly ordered love. It’s easy to pay lip service to having our loves prioritized in the right order. But it isn’t our words which reveal where our hearts lie, but our actions. If you say you love God above all, but spend more time looking at Instagram than reading scriptures, you really love social media more than...

Hidden Rainbow Balayage | New Hair for Spring 2020!

Happy new hair for spring! I’m calling this one “hidden rainbow,” because it started with the concept of rainbow hair but in such a way where it would be rainbow-esque regardless of whether it was up, down, curled or worn natural. Most pieces have two shades in a gradient but some have three and a few have the full rainbow gradient. We went with more dominant purple and pink (with more purple at the crown and with a veil of babylights) around my face. Hair was color...

Best of Pat McGrath OpuLUST Glosses

Here are all eight shades of Pat McGrath OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) ranked from best to worst! The formula is supposed to “seamlessly glide” onto lips with “multidimensional sparkle with a smooth, non-sticky finish” that has a “shimmering, move-resistant glasslike finish” and “otherworldly opacity.” The pigmentation varied from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with most shades applying evenly and having good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle.

How To Care for Your Aging Parents

Your aging parents cared for you when you were a child, and there may come a time where you have to repay the favor. As your parents age, they’ll slowly find it more and more difficult to perform tasks that they have been used to performing their whole lives. As they lose their independence in this sense, sooner rather than later, they’ll find it difficult to retain the standard of living that they are used to, and this can then have a serious impact on their quality of life. It is at this...

I Tried the "Clean Color" Makeup Trend - and It Was Surprisingly Easy

Colorful makeup can be a lot of things: fun, playful, expressive. It can also be intimidating and seemingly "over the top" - especially on an average day. I hear you and agree with all of the above. Luckily, there's a new makeup trend on the horizon, and it's closing the gap between the two sides of the argument. Enter clean color. Used to describe looks that pair vibrant hues with an otherwise neutral face, it's perfect for minimalists and makeup-lovers alike. Whether you're a fan of liner, ey...

Bite Beauty Leche & Hard Cider Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Leche Bite Beauty Leche Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, soft coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish.

Why are Oscar voters still afraid of two men having hot, steamy sex?

Boy meets boy. Boy kisses boy. But boy, oh boy, they both had better keep their clothes on and step away from the bed. That seems to be the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ rule when it comes to straight male actors portraying LGBTQ characters onscreen.

How do you feel about sheer eyeshadows?

I don’t think that I gravitate toward sheer eyeshadow much, if at all. The closest I come is something that is very sparkly with a more transparent base, but the ones I reach for/like the most are still higher coverage (just with shimmer/sparkle). I am the opposite of one and done, LOL. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

5 Tips To Help Lower Your Grocery Bill

Food is probably your biggest expense aside from housing. After all, you always have to eat. So is there any way you can really cut back on this category? The easy answer is to stop going out to eat and spend more time cooking at home, but what if you’ve already done that and still can’t afford to be spending what you’re spending on food? The answer lies in your grocery bill. Just because you’re cooking your own food doesn’t necessarily mean you’re saving a lot of money. Groceries can cost a lo...

Babar Azam knows the rules of Test cricket in Pakistan

Babar Azam (via YouTube) Babar Azam was 14 when Test cricket exited Pakistan and headed for the UAE. While the nation’s not against picking players who are (supposedly) that age, he didn’t play first-class cricket until he was a wisened old 16-year-old. That isn’t to say he doesn’t know how Test matches played in Pakistan are supposed to go however. Test matches played in Pakistan are to a great extent about painfully relentless run-scoring by frighteningly good middle-orde...
