Laura Mercier Chocolat Divin, Coral Nu, Coral Clair Rouge Essentiel Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Chocolat Divin Laura Mercier Chocolat Divin Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème LipstickLaura Mercier Chocolat Divin Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, deeper brown with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy finish.

Anastasia Soft Rose Stick Blush Review & Swatches

Soft Rose Anastasia Soft Rose Stick BlushAnastasia Soft Rose Stick Blush ($32.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish.

Podcast #729: How to Fight Internet-Induced Numbness

The ironic thing about our digital devices, is that they promise constant stimulation . . . and yet we find they end up making us feel numb. Numb in terms of struggling to be present. Numb in feeling overloaded with information and choices. Numb in feeling like we often view even our own experiences from a third-party perspective. My guest today, Dr. Charles Chaffin, has written a book called Numb: How the Information Age Dulls Our Senses and How We Can Get Them Back, which explores the vario...

Unreal Deli Sandwiches in Toronto

I’ve been following Unreal Deli (IG) online for a year or two, and have been curious about trying their products ever since. They looked really good, and I liked the variety of plant meats they had – things like corned beef, turkey, and now steak slices, but they were primarily USA only at the time, weren’t ready to ship to Canada at the time (though will do so now according to their FAQ) and it’s not like we will be crossing the border anytime soon, so I waited. Anyway, that wait is over. La...

A Story of Amy from Tiktok, How Small a World It Is, and How Hyaluronic Acid On Sale Inspired This Post (All Proceeds Generated by this Post Will Be Donated To Domestic Abuse Victims)

A long time ago (weeks ago) I was hanging out in a, well, it was, a thirst trap of sorts on Tiktok. We’ll call it that even though it was something else entirely different. And a little joke happened about Hyaluronic Acid which I won’t get into here because I don’t want to offend anyone but this is where I met Amy. And this is how very tiny and small the universe is. I made a comment on this interesting HA video and Amy quickly stepped in and commented back. She revealed that she read my bl...

Walter Manzke’s New L.A. Bistro Bicyclette Is on a Roll

Paco Rabanne Phantom: Frankenstein Never Smelled Better

Anastasia Cognac Diamond Stick Highlighter Review & Swatches

It had less luminosity as it did random sparkle particles that showed up, so it wasn’t as flattering as other highlighters or even ones within the formula’s range. The consist...

Nach den Lockdowns gab ich Online-Dating eine weitere Chance & das kam dabei raus

Anfang 2018 beschloss ich, ein Jahr lang ohne Fuckboys auszukommen. Ich hatte schließlich lange genug irgendwelchen Narzissten, die sich oft nicht einmal meinen Namen merken konnten, meine kostbare Zeit und meinen Körper gewidmet. Ich beschloss also, mir als Neustart eine Auszeit von Gelegenheitssex und Dates zu nehmen. Ohne groß darüber nachzudenken, wurde aus einem Jahr zwei – und gerade, als ich mich darauf vorbereitete, wieder mit dem Daten zu beginnen, brach die Pandemie aus. Zuerst fand...
