Dior New World (365) Rouge Blush Review & Swatches

New World (365) Dior New World (365) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral base with flecks of lavender and gold sparkle over a more satin-like finish. It was a more sparkly (or “glittery” in effect, but it did not contain plastic glitter) product where some of those sparkles seemed to disappear during application. The blush was richly pigmented and applied evenly to bare skin with a formula that blended out beau...

Fear and Overwhelm

I got laid off in January of 2006. The writing had been on the wall for a while but you know, until it finally happened I figured I’d be hopeful and optimistic. “We’re going to have to let you go.” I had no idea how these words would change my life. I found myself, my purpose, my joy and happiness in my career. I love what I’ve been able to make of my career since that horrible, unfair, illogical layoff 15 years ago. The pain was real but it got way, way better. When I first thought of my job se...

ColourPop Sundae Funday Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Sundae Funday ColourPop Sundae Funday Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes a shimmery, white gold, matte strawberry milk pink, pearly fuchsia pink, and brighter, matte yellow.

Scented Swimsuits Show Renewed Value Of Novelty

With roots that web back to both the oddities of early science (think of the camera obscura and later awe-inspiring contraptions presented at World’s Fairs) as well as objects brought home from 18th-century “Grand Tours” (antiquated gap years), the novelty item has fluctuated in cultural prestige throughout the 20th century. By 1980, within a newly globalized world run by America and Western... Read full article: Scented Swimsuits Show Renewed Value Of Novelty from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colo...

3 Essential Books for Understanding Our Disorienting Modern World

The economist Tyler Cowen describes books that fundamentally change your perspective as “quake books.” These are books that so shake up your mind, and your preexisting understandings, that you can’t view the world the same way after you’ve put them down.  Below I list three books that aptly fit this description: After Virtue by Alasdair MacIntyre, The Triumph of the Therapeutic by Philip Rieff, and A Secular Age by Charles Taylor. What these three books have in common is that t...

Dior Nude Glow Dior Forever Couture Luminizer Review & Swatches

Nude Glow (01) Dior Nude Glow (01) Dior Forever Couture Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy gold with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to adjust to sheerer, more buildable coverage if desired by using a lighter hand.

"While workers of all ages have become accustomed to dialing in and skipping the wearying commute, younger ones have grown especially attached to the new way of doing business."

"And in many cases, the decision to return pits older managers who view working in the office as the natural order of things against younger employees who’ve come to see operating remotely as completely normal in the 16 months since the pandemic hit. Some new hires have never gone into their employers’ workplace at all.... In a recent survey by the Conference Board, 55 percent of millennials, defined as people born between 1981 and 1996, questioned the wisdom of returning to the office. Among me...

11 Lifestyle Hacks To Make Big Impacts On Your Health

Health is a vital component of life. The word denotes mental, social and physical well-being; when one mentions health, we imagine the absence of disease, where the body is at peak functionality.  In the 1970s, health experts chose to expand this definition. From that point on, in addition to physical wellness, health started referring to mental welfare. Furthermore, all three aspects are interlinked; if one criterion is not met, the other two will likely be deficient. The dictionary...

Während du dich umziehst, stellst du fest, dass du in aller Eile deinen Sport-BH vergessen hast.

Millennials are 'questioning the wisdom' of returning to the office more than older generations, even though in-person work might benefit them the most

A generation gap is emerging over the debate over whether to return to in-person work. Hinterhaus Productions Younger workers are more likely to resist calls to return to in-person work. Like in-person work, remote work also comes with tradeoffs. Some companies are becoming more flexible with in-person work to retain employees. See more stories on Insider's business page. As companies increasingly call for employees to go back to in-person work, younger people are becoming some of the ...

We watched the first episode of This Could Go Anywhere and this is what we think

We said we’d report back on This Could Go Anywhere, the Netflix show where Phil Tufnell and Brendon McCullum travel New Zealand playing golf. We watched the first episode last night and we have… uncommonly few thoughts about it, actually. To recap, the somewhat head-scratching premise of This Could Go Anywhere is that, “Cricketers Brendon ‘Baz’ McCullum and Phil ‘Tuffers’ Tufnell go on an exhilarating road trip to explore New Zealand’s most picturesque golf courses.” It’s very obvious fr...
