This or That | Critical Comparisons for Mindful Purchases

Have you ever seen two products and thought it was impossible to decide between the two of them? Do you have two similar shades in your stash but haven’t been able to explain why one stands out to you over the other? There are more obvious ways to compare between two products, like looking at the price, size, whether the brand is accessible (or desirable to have or purchase), and so on.  There are also more nuanced ways of really looking at how you use your products, what you like the best, wha...

5 Most Expensive Purchases You Won’t Regret Making in 2020

Did you know that getting a typically expensive product on sale leads to a crazy dopamine spike in your brain? This, of course, explains why shopping is such an addictive venture. However, more and more people have started to question their spending habits and now make smarter choices on what to spend on. For instance, why buy a super expensive couch when you can cop a beautiful one in a thrift store for less? That said, there are some expensive purchases that you cannot compromise on. The...

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer Swatches (x11)

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer ($38.00) is a high-shine gloss and lip stain hybrid that’s supposed to have “maximum shine, intense color and lasting hydration.” I fear these might be getting discontinued as they are disappearing from some retailers, and there’s a newly-released gloss by the brand that sounds very similar (but has a new name). At $38 a pop, I figured I should swatch the ones I already bought before it’s a total loss! And yes, Daybreak REALLY applied ...

MAC Bronze Collection Swatches

MAC Bronze Collection released earlier this month at Ulta, and a lot of it sold out (go figure!), but the collection is supposed to launch on MAC’s website on June 1st, so here are swatches for your perusal! As a FYI, the five Foiled Eyeshadows are actually previously-released shades but with new names–which is really odd for MAC as they repromote but usually use the same name! For reference: Sunphoria = Feminine Wiles (slightly cooler this time around), White Haute ...

How Many Ways Can You Remix a Feminine Fougère?

There are only 54 fragrances in the Fragrantica database that are catalogued as being both a fougère and marketed towards women. Of course, there have been countless lavender soliflores produced over the years that are encouraged for wear by both men and women. The recent rise of the feminine fougère roots in a different aim: incorporating traditionally masculine fougère DNA into feminine scent...

3 Practical Tips for Overcoming Productivity FOMO during the Coronavirus Downturn

When it comes to working from home, I’ve noticed that the number one enemy of productivity is social media. I hear this from college interns. I hear it from direct managers. I’m not immune either – you should see me scroll through Twitter during the Oscars season. Americans spend an average of 2.35 hours every […] The post 3 Practical Tips for Overcoming Productivity FOMO during the Coronavirus Downturn appeared first on Lindsey Pollak's Blog.

What Are The Best Wireless Earbuds For Moms

Wired technology is already on its way from a once-trendy thing to a horse-and-buggy one. When you listen to your gut, it tells you that you hate being a fuddy-duddy. Go wireless then to make sure your headphones and you keep up with the times. As new, feature-rich earphones crop up at a blistering pace, there’s never been a better time to make a cord-free switch. So, what are the best true wireless earbuds to do so? There’s no one-size-fits-all pair of cans, but there’s one tha...

Break Free From The Shackles Of Imposter Syndrome

What is imposter syndrome? Well, to cut a long story short, have you ever felt like a fraud in your career? Do you often feel as if your success is down to simply sheer luck? That’s pretty much imposter syndrome in a nutshell. It’s that niggling feeling, that you’re just not good enough and sooner or later you’ll be found out. First recognised in 1978 by psychologists Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes, Imposter syndrome can be crippling and has the ability to erode one’s confidence, subseque...

The Pride Makeup Collections Are Coming and I Expect Beauty Brands To Do Better This Year

June commemorates the Stonewall riots that occurred in 1969 but it’s also a month long celebration for the LGBT+ community to celebrate their sexuality loudly and proudly. I identify as straight but many of my greatest and bestest friends are part of the LGBT+ community and I consider myself not only their ally and advocate but also an advocate and ally for all of the community. As they say in Toy Story, you got a friend in me. Last year, I wrote a ranty post about how I felt some beauty bra...

Three New Fragrances and a Body Mist in the Holi Line by Rituals

The Dutch brand Rituals finds inspiration for its various scent collections in Eastern traditions, for instance the wisdom of Ayurveda from India, the ancient Chinese concept of Jing, or the Japanese legend of the Tsuru. In 2018, the brand launched a product line based on the celebrations around the holiday of Holi. Holi is an ancient tradition from India that celebrates the arrival of a colorfu...

The 10 Best Sherlock Holmes Stories

Over the course of 40 years during the late 19th and early 20th century, Arthur Conan Doyle published 60 Sherlock Holmes tales in the form of four short novels and 56 short stories (which are generally published in five separate collections). The adventures of Doyle’s iconic detective proved a craze from the start, and since then, no character has been as reproduced and adapted in film, television, stage, and the printed word.  I’d long been intrigued by the idea of Sherlock, but wasn’t real...

Maybelline The Falsies Lash Mask Eyelash Conditioner Not for Lash Growth But All About Lash Conditioning

Maybelline The Falsies Lash Mask Eyelash Conditioner isn’t grow you some new lashes overnight but it will condition them! So, hi there I’m like super anxious about using anything on my lashes overnight. Why? Because I tend to sleep on my stomach with my face smooshed into a pillow. Listen to me, don’t ever sleep like this. It’s not good for your eyes, your face, etc…! It causes wrinkles. Lay on your side or your back if possible. Or at least invest in a silk pillowcase or two. I’ve tried...

How to Survive a Grenade Explosion

Grenades are diabolical little devices that go back as far as the 8th-century when soldiers from the Byzantine Empire began putting incendiary compounds in small stone or ceramic jars and hurling them at their enemies. Today’s grenades aren’t a whole lot more elegant. There are a few kinds of grenades, with time-delayed fragmentation grenades being the most common in modern armies. Frag grenades are made of steel or some super-hard synthetic, and filled with explosive material. When you pull th...

So schufen Magazine & das Patriarchat das Märchen von der Cellulite

Cellulite ist nicht echt! Schluss. Aus. Ende. Oh, das war nicht klar genug? Dann lass mich noch etwas tiefer in die Materie eingehen: Wir alle haben Unterhautfettgewebe und Fasergewebe. Das ist real. Und tatsächlich gibt es bei den meisten menschlichen Körpern Bereiche, an denen die Haut Dellen oder Unebenheiten aufweist. DAS IST NORMAL. Aber bis vor einiger Zeit gab es kein Wort, um sie zu definieren, denn sie waren kein Problem. Vor einem halben Jahrhundert wusste kein Mensch, was Celluli...

Home Sweet Home! by The Pioneer Woman

I hope you’ve all been doing well, staying safe, and (hopefully) getting back to some glimpse of normal. I know normal is a relative term, and I swear, I still have moments where I am hit with this strong “What just happened?!?” feeling regarding the past couple of months. What a time. I hope things continue to get better—for you, for your family, for the world.   On the ranch, the kids and I are going to continue to shoot our own shows for awhile.

Did You Know You Can Buy Really Cool, Vintage Beauty At the Vermont Country Store?

One of my biggest joys in life is watching old, vintage makeup commercials on youTube. I get such a kick out of all those old Love commercials because, dude, Donovan (he follows me on Twitter, I’m just throwing it out there so you can be jealous and stuff ha!)… I really wish I grew up in the 60s or even the 70s because makeup, beauty, and hair care looks like it was brilliant back in the day. Hell, I still want to look like Twiggy when I grow up! Ok, so, makeup, skincare, beauty all of it ju...

I Promise the Lack Of An Ulta 20% Off Coupon Isn’t About You But Something Entirely Different

I’ve gotten a ton of e-mails asking when is the Ulta 20% Off coupon coming because I really wanna do an order. I totally get it. I did a little bit of damage at Sephora during the Rouge Event but I was actually overall really good. There just wasn’t anything I really needed. I did get some skincare both old and new items like the new Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer with Skin-Smoothing Peptides. But overall, my haul was kind of boring. I do have a few bits and bobs I want from Ulta thoug...

Create and Share

Many people who want to earn a living from creative work get stuck trying to figure out a business model. Meanwhile they’re not actually doing much creating. They’re waiting for clarity. Waiting for clarity is a waste of time. So is trying to figure out the perfect transition plan in advance. It’s easier to find clarity when you’re in motion. I suggest that you start simpler. Focus on getting into the rhythm of creating and sharing. Don’t worry about monetization. Don’t worry about the bus...

Still Going in May

I t rains every morning here. It just gets greener and greener. Food is growing in spite of critter interference, in the deck planters. Decided to try a patchwork version of a green themed baby-sized quilt Just to show how that might happen. I picked the cross pattern. Nine 5" squares.  A green(ish) cross. A new Nine Lives Patch configuration.  Works for so many reasons right now. As a symbol and as a simple project. I guess I could call this one Life as well. Oh, maybe the life series . Oh ...

Which Fruit Do You Choose For a Makeup and Beauty Theme? I Choose Banana!

I’m currently bananas about banana beauty and makeup! It all started when I got bored and I rearranged by pantry ten times. After ten times it was getting boring so I moved on to my beauty closet which was a really good idea because I had some stuff in there like these cool EOS Lip Balms that I forgot about. Sometimes I feel so much more human when I get a random text from my friend Sam saying, “I purchased so and so and I don’t know where I put it!” This is me lately. I forget I have thin...

Underworld, by Christele Jacquemin - Seductive in Chiaroscuro

Among this year's finalists of the Art and Olfaction Award, I discovered a name that I had never heard before: Christèle Jacquemin. The photographer and perfumer released three perfumes last year that come with their own imagery, but the one that captured my heart was not the one that the jury chose for an award. Impermanence may be stunning and just glistening with its beauty and natural feeling... Read full article: Underworld, by Christele Jacquemin - Seductive in Chiaroscuro from Fragrantic...

"I was obsessed with femininity for years after I transitioned in 2001. I reveled in using cosmetics..."

"... and flattering outfits to look both more convincing and attractive as a woman, forms of expression my old gender denied me. But apart from how much time it took to dress up this way, I also grew weary of the awful feeling that my beauty was always on the verge of collapse, that a mere rub of the eyes or bunching of the cloth would ruin the effect. Also, the attention from men that at first felt intoxicating turned oppressive over time.... So I stopped wearing so much makeup.... More comfort...
