Kosas Helios Color and Light Palette Review & Swatches

Helios Kosas Helios Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a muted orange blush paired with a warm, light-medium gold highlighter. This is the lower intensity duo, so it was intended to have sheerer, more buildable coverage, which was accurate for both shades. The texture was slightly tackier with the highlighter (true of other highlighters in the same formula) compared to the blush, but both applied well and blend...

As A Millennial It’s Your Responsibility To Put Avocado In Your Hair

Apparently millennials are spending way too much money on avocados. Bred, born, native New Yorker here meaning we pay $16 bucks or more for avo toast on a good brunch day. What the hell are we thinking? I’m almost positive I can do avocado toast for $2-4 bucks at home but I’m too scared I’ll burn the house down attempting it. Listen, I can burn boiling water over here. Adulting is hard enough bring cooking into it and I’m so scared I need you to hold me through it. Avo toast, guac, and avo...

Vegas and the Virus

On Sunday Rachelle and I went for an early morning walk along the Vegas Strip, mostly outside. I wanted to go mainly for curiosity’s sake. Normally the Strip is very uncrowded in the morning and then gets busier as lunchtime approaches, so I wasn’t expecting much activity till 10am or so. I figured the risk would be relatively low relative to what I might learn and share. Some casinos are still open while others are still shuttered. What we saw, however, were varying degrees of safety measure...

Pat Mcgrath at TJ Maxx is Apparently a Thing Now

Hi there I’m addicted to Home Goods and that sort of extends to TJ Maxx too kind of?! You don’t understand how much I miss Home Goods. This is a source of many, many text conversations with my bestie Sam. We’re all over here holding our breath waiting for it to re-open but I have a feeling I’ll be too paranoid to actually go when it does.

Sydney Grace Beverly & Faith Lip Creams Reviews & Swatches

Beverly Sydney Grace Beverly Lip Cream ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which spread well across my lips, but I had some product that settled into lip lines, and the color have sat more smoothly overall. The consistency wasn’t heavy but was light-medium in thickness and had moderate tackiness. It had better adhesion and lon...

Willkommen bei Money Diaries, wo wir über das letzte Tabuthema sprechen, das Frauen von heute wohl noch haben: Geld. Wir fragen verschiedenste Frauen, wie sie ihr hart erarbeitetes Geld in sieben Tagen so ausgeben – und verfolgen dabei jeden Cent.  „Und, wie lange denkst du, kannst du das noch machen?“ Das ist die häufigste Frage, die mir jüngere Models stellen, wenn ich sie am Set treffe.

Facial Masks and Foggy Specs

For the last couple of months I’ve been wearing a facial mask whenever I’m outside the safety of our home — a very unexpected addition to my daily outfit. It’s taken a while to figure out the most comfortable fit, but I have some good options. The biggest challenge has been preventing my eyewear from fogging up, and I still don’t have a flop-proof solution despite trying every tip I’ve read. I’m down to three types of masks that work well. A disposable mask, a shaped mask, and the Karen Kane mas...

The Realm’s England XI – 2. Marcus Trescothick

We’re picking an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most. We’re all expert epidemiologists these days so it’s tempting to think there’s some sort of favourite player infection going on here. Gooch opened with Athers and infected him and then Athers opened with Trescothick and infected him. It’s not like that though. It’s just that we’re doing this in batting order. It’s not entirely unlikely that our favourite openers batted together. Superfit Gooch and Young Athe...

How does gravity bend spacetime?

We typically think of events as happening in space and in time. "In reality, space and time are strongly intertwined things and the union of them is called spacetime," explains Konstantin Batygin. The force that we understand as gravity, according to Batygin, is the result of the spacetime continuum being curved by Earth's gravitational field. Depending on how close you are to the source of gravity, time will pass at different rates.Traveling backward in time is not possible. Traveling forward t...
