MAC x Selena Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Bidi Bidi Bom Bom MAC Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light pink with moderate, warm undertones and lots of shimmer and micro-sparkle throughout. The consistency was thicker than your typical gloss, though consistent with MAC’s formula, with moderate tackiness, but it had a smooth, plush feel as it spread well over my lips and smoothed out some of my lip lines. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that lasted ...

BLEU LILAS Candle by Nicolai Parfumeur-Createur Paris

  Lilac is not a usual choice for a candle, and even in perfume, it is not the easiest ingredient to recreate. However, we all need to bring a little bit of warm and blooming spring into our homes, especially when it is not easy to enjoy the blooming season outdoors.   Notes:lilac, jasmine, ylang-ylang   Lilac is a “silent” flower revealed by the perfumer. It is a great interpretation... Read full article: BLEU LILAS Candle by Nicolai Parfumeur-Createur Paris from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

How to Work Productively on Big Projects

Recently I’ve been a in terrific productive flow. Due to the coronavirus situation, I have no in-person obligations now, so there’s no need to go to the gym, to guitar lessons, to run errands, or to meet up with people. My hair is growing longer, but my focus is growing deeper. This has given me the space to tinker with my system for managing tasks and projects. I’ve had time to experiment with different approaches and to observe closely how those changes affect me. There’s less variety of ac...

It took science 2,000 years to find the clitoris (and it's 10x bigger than most people think)

In the 1990s, Australian urologist Helen O'Connell performed the first magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans on aroused women's clitorises. She found that the clitoris is 10 times larger than most anyone suspected. In this video, science journalist Rachel Gross, who is currently writing a book called Lady Anatomy, shares some medical history and takes us on a tour of the "clitoral complex."

Your Work From Home Life – 7 Optimizing Apps

Your work from home life likely differs significantly from your pre-pandemic environs, but you must make the most of it. Remote workers must optimize productivity and, fortunately, there are apps for that.

Best Pearl Bracelets

Pearls, whether genuine or simulated, are one of the most sophisticated gemstones because of their glistening shell and exquisite appearance. They have a timeless elegance that makes them coveted as jewelry. They are forever in style, dating as far back as ancient Greece. Before they became accessible to everyone, only emperors were allowed to wear them. Today, pearl jewelries are worn mostly on special events like weddings and Christenings. Sometimes, they are even paired with casual outfits to...

MAC La Reina & Selena Vive Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

La Reina MAC La Reina Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging during application. The texture was lightweight, dense without being too firm, and had light slip, so it glided on but didn’t feel slippery while it was worn. This shade lasted nicely for four and a half hours ...

MAC Inolvidable & Queen of Cumbia Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Inolvidable MAC Inolvidable Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle throughout. The texture was noticeably gritty from the glitter–it wasn’t the most comfortable to apply in a fluid motion–and did not seem to apply evenly. The product was prone to settling into my deeper lip lines and emphasized lip texture/imperfections. It had semi-opaque color coverage tha...

The Science, Techniques, and Recipes to Elevate Your Grilling (+ Grill Giveaway!)

As we dive into spring and summer, there are many sacrifices being made during this pandemic that are necessary for the greater good. I’ve quarantined myself and my family here in Nashville to do my own small part. However, that doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped living or, dare I say, enjoying my daily life. That’s especially true when it comes to my most favorite craft; whether in good times or bad, as the title of my newest book declares, I confess to being a serial griller. The way I see it, ev...

Let’s pick the All-Time Greatest Middle-Aged XI

Which cricketers performed best after the age of 35? Let’s put them into a team. If middle-age is about anything, it’s about attributing all of the failings you already had to the ageing process. It’s still hard to get out of bed, but now it’s because of your age. Your waist size is still bigger than you’d like, but now it’s because of your age. You still forget everything, but now it’s because of your age. This kind of ageism is great – but not if you’re a sportsman. Cricketers ...

Warum du es wie Kylie Jenner machen & mit dem Gärtnern anfangen solltest

Weil Kylie Cosmetics wegen der Corona-Pandemie bis auf Weiteres dicht machen musste, hat Kylie Jenner aktuell – wie viele andere Menschen auch – mehr Zeit für Hobbys als sonst. Auf Instagram teilte sie jetzt mit ihren Followern, womit sie sich seit neustem an liebsten die Zeit vertreibt und ich staunte nicht schlecht, als ich die Story sah. Denn: Jenner ist unter die Gärtnerinnen gegangen! Wer hätte das gedacht? Dass sie, wie wir Normalsterblichen, drei Stunden vorm Baumarkt ansteht, um sich Blu...

Ich habe den Corona-Impfstoff getestet & so geht es mir einen Monat später

Als klar wurde, wie schnell sich das Coronavirus auf der Welt verbreitet und wie tödlich es ist, ging die globale Suche nach einem Impfstoff richtig los. Zurzeit ist von 115 Impfstoffkandidaten die Rede, von denen wiederum aktuell 78 weiterentwickelt werden. Die weltweit erste Versuchsreihe am Menschen wurde von Moderna, Inc, einem Biotech-Unternehmen in Massachusetts, ins Leben gerufen. Vor einem Monat bekam dort eine Gruppe von Freiwilligen den Test-Impfstoff gespritzt. Die erste Pers...

Send Pics: ripping, brutal, amazing novel about teens, sextortion, revenge and justice

Nikki and her friends have a reputation as the "ice queens" of Jonesville High, but their demeanor is a form of group defense against the school, dominated as it is by a cultish group of teen wrestlers whose single regional win five years before is still the pride of the school and the rich suburban parents who dominate the school board. Suze is the new kid, a girl whose academic nomad parents raised her in exotic places, whose worldly independence marks her out as different from anyone els...

Street Style, Sheltering In Place Edition

Here in Seattle we’re six weeks into working and staying at home with almost everything around us shut down. Time passes slowly, yet the days fly by. Things feel a little surreal, but we are getting used to the new normal. One of the changes I notice is the new street style of sheltering in place.  We live in a loft apartment that is close to the waterfront in downtown Seattle. We don’t go anywhere except for Yorkie Sam’s short walks and the very occasional run to the pharmacy or grocery store. ...

Living Like We’re Not in Control

Char and I lived through the death of a dream lately. Something big didn’t turn out the way we always thought it would. Here’s the crazy part. It’s almost like we expected things to turn out the way we’d hoped. We imagined the future, and then considered ourselves entitled to what we’d dreamed. We do this all the time. I catch myself thinking about what it will be like to write my next book, to move into our next building as a church, to pay off our mortgage, to retire, to grow old with my...
