Can I Get Paid To Take Care Of My Child?

Depending on where you live, you may have access to federal, state, and local resources that can pay you a stipend or an hourly wage to act as your child’s caregiver.  If you have a severely disabled baby or child who has a condition like cerebral palsy or autism, chances are you have missed work and the costs of caring for your child have increased. When my third child was born with a disability, I ended up having to leave my career behind.  Luckily for me, there are ways to get pai...

Perfumed Horoscope: June 1 - June 6

  Our minds can occasionally become like a puppet show, where nothing sticks out as meaningful. Then, like thunder, strong emotions arrive and rearrange us, and push our priorities in front of us. This is a common Lunar Eclipse pattern (June 5th.) It is like a regular full moon, only stronger. Frustrations with relationships culminate, “and lack of self-control could turn love to hate, re...

Discovering Avon Imari Through its Celebration Edition

There is one Avon fragrance I've always been very curious about, but somehow I never smelled it: Imari. This enigmatic original vintage bottle of a burgundy color from 1985 has never crossed my path, so I don't know how it smells like. However, as I was browsing for cheapies on Notino, I stumbled upon Imari Celebration Edition, for only 6 euros. Well, I couldn't say 'no' to a cheap thrill and poss...

What happens when your natural sleeping pattern is at odds with the rest of the world?For as long as she can remember, Jenny Carter has gone to bed late and not woken up until late the following morning, sometimes even the early afternoon. Growing up, she didn’t have a bedtime, and at university she preferred to write her essays between 6pm and 10pm. She loves evenings. They’re when she feels the most creative and can concentrate the best. But that’s not when her employer or society expects her ...

Who's more handsome: Alexandre or Aleksandr?

There are two fragrances in my collection named after Alexanders. The first is Aleksandr by Arquiste, dedicated to the famous Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin and his last, fateful duel. The second is Alexandre by Prudence Paris; brand owner Prudence Kilgour made it with kind thoughts about her father, Alexandre. Both are the same age, released in 2012. Different legends led to the cre... Read full article: Who's more handsome: Alexandre or Aleksandr? from Fragrantica Perfumes and C...

Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze + Airbrush Bronzer Swatches

Last week, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer ($55.00 for 0.56 oz.) launched in four shades along with a new, all-matte eyeshadow quad. I had some (unresolved) issues applying and blending out Tan and Deep (what’s published is my second and third attempts respectively), so I have to dive into that a bit more. The other two are so light that it was harder to tell if they had similar issues, so I’ll be looking more closely at those as wel...

This or That: Coral Blush Edition

This week, I shared my breakdown of how to make more critical comparisons between two products when you’re choosing between two options, whether you’re in decluttering mode or considering a new purchase or have been tempted by something new and shiny! Here are those methods applied to some of the recommendations I made in my A to Z Guide to Coral Blush. In that post, I included a variety of shades from light to dark, matte to shimmer, cooler to warmer and so on across different brands and price...
