Anastasia Caramel Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

A recent college graduate, he was new to the job and struggled to click with his teammates. Maybe, he thought, this would be a nice break from “the face-to-face stuff”: the office politics and small talk. (His name has been changed for this story.)“I couldn...

I can’t commit to anything, I feel no eagerness to live

Something or someone stole the steering wheel of your life, you need to get it back, says Philippa PerryThe question I have reached a point in my life where I am having to make the major commitments expected, like marriage, homeownership and children.
