Shiseido Incense, J-Pop, Woodblock VisionAiry Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Incense (209) Shiseido Incense (209) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark peachy-coral with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. The color payoff was good in one layer, though the color could have applied more evenly along the edges. There was slight, but visible, streaking apparent that I just couldn’t seem to correct. The lipstick had a lightweight, creamy, and fluid texture that skated ...

Becca Gratitude Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter Review & Swatches

Gratitude Becca Gratitude Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle over a bright, metallic sheen. This particular shade seemed to have slightly larger shimmer/sparkle particles compared to most of the permanent range. The sheerer the application, the more noticeable the sparkles were. The highlighter yielded opaque color cove...

I was calm until I read about colleges staying closed until September 2022

Each night before I go to sleep, I lay in bed torturing myself with the day’s news. I know we are not supposed to do that, but there are very few vices I can fully engage in when we have five people living in a 1000-square-foot apartment. Screen-time news right before bed is one of few vices that takes very little space and does not involve the bathroom. Wait. You’re wondering about the five people, right? I didn’t know our apartment is actually approved for only two people. I found it out wh...

Videoconference Decorum: Get Out Of Bed And Put On A Shirt

Videoconference decorum is taking a hard hit with Covid-19, as those unused to videoconference etiquette are getting their first taste of certain baseline requirements. We all know the joys of conference calls (funny), but videoconferencing is taking things to a whole new level. When working on your personal branding as an attorney, being clothed and upright are two key items to keep in mind. You’ll leave a positive impression on your colleagues and, where applicable, the judicial system. “As ma...

Are Clickbait Articles Ridiculous or Am I Overly Critical?

Have you ever been on Facebook, Twitter, or maybe even just bring up Yahoo or a news site and come across some overly ridiculous clickbait article? For example, I need the 5 minutes back from life that I used reading an article on Instyle entitled “Who Gave Dakota Johnson the Right to Look This Good Right Now?” She was wearing ratty jeans, a hoodie, and her hair was a bit messy. So, wait, remind me again how is this looking really good right now? She looked like a normal, everyday girl and ...

Jorum Studio of Scotland Goes Psycho!

  In June 2019, Jorum Studio embarked upon an exciting and ambitious new project called Psychoterratica.

The end results displayed how one material can be used in very different ways. Armed with the three Psycho...

Revlon Glaring Red, Shine Stealer, Glassy Ruby Melting Glass Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Glaring Red (023) Revlon Glaring Red (023) Super Lustrous Melting Glass Shine Lipstick ($9.99 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighter, richer coral-red with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly in a single layer, but the product was more prone to sitting in my lip lines, both subtle and deeper ones at that. The shiny finish helped to distract from the imperfections ...

"A British woman in a long-term relationship with a 92-year-old German chandelier has been told that her attraction to historic light fittings is not considered to be a protected sexual orientation."

"The press regulator, Ipso, made the ruling after Amanda Liberty, a woman from Leeds in her mid thirties, complained about an article in the Sun mocking her public declaration of love for Lumiere, her name for an intricate lamp she bought on eBay. She argued that the newspaper’s article breached the regulator’s code of conduct which requires publishers to avoid prejudicial or pejorative references to an individual’s sexuality. Liberty identifies as an ‘objectum sexual’ – an individual who is att...

Podcast #602: The Case for Being Unproductive

Decades ago, economists thought that thanks to advances in technology, in the 21st century we’d only work a few hours a week and enjoy loads of leisure time. Yet here we are in the modern age, still working long hours and feeling like we’re busier than ever. What happened? My guest today argues that we’ve all been swept up into a cult of efficiency that started centuries ago and has only been strengthened by advances in technology. The remedy? Do nothing. At least nothing productive. Her name...

Trennung in der Corona-Zeit: So ist es, in einer globalen Krise verlassen zu werden

Als ich das Wort Corona zum ersten Mal hörte, feierten mein Freund und ich gerade unser Einjähriges in Mexico City. Wir führten eine Fernbeziehung, weil er in Amerika lebt und ich in Kanada. Es war Mitte Januar und wir hatten beschlossen, auf Geschenke zu verzichten und stattdessen ein kleines Abenteuer zu wagen und gemeinsam zu verreisen. Zwischen Markt- und Museumsbesuchs schrieb ich meiner Mutter eine Whatsapp und erwähnte beiläufig, dass ich gerade etwas schlechter atmen kann, was sich...

Consistent Awakening Times

One challenge that can make it difficult to create a consistent daily flow is getting up at inconsistent times throughout the week. If I get up at different times that could diverge by an hour or more, I find it difficult to have a consistent morning routine. Initially I thought it shouldn’t make a big difference if I get up at 5am, 6am, or 7am. As long as I get enough sleep, I can run through my morning routine when I first awaken. But for some reason, it does make a difference. I find it...
