Parks and Food Trucks

Continuing on from our North Bay trip, we got up Sunday morning, packed into the car, and got on the road. First stop, South Bay Provincial Park (traditional territories of Michif Piyii, and Anishinabewaki). Or so we thought. Normally I do a more thorough check of our destinations, but didn’t this time. And when we plugged the park into our GPS, it dutifully took us into the woods as close as possible to the park, but South Bay is actually a “non-operational park,” with access via water. Gen...

MAC For My Next Trick, Say the Magic Word, Magic Charmer Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

For My Next Trick MAC For My Next Trick Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep pink with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips but pulled away and settled into some of my deeper lip lines, so it wasn’t as forgiving as other shades in the range. The lipstick had a denser, slightly thicker feel, which may have accounted for the settling. It wore...

Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard MAC Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard Hyper Real Glow Duo ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) swirls together to create a light-medium, rosy copper with soft, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. I don’t know in what world it makes sense to use the shades independently–the audacity to even give them separate names even!!–because the only way to do that would be to use very small eyeshadow brushes! It had a very ...

Do you prefer full-size or travel-size for complexion products? (Foundation, concealer, etc.)

I am really inconsistent about using concealer, so travel size is actually perfect for my use. I often mix two shades of foundations, so if it was a really expensive foundation (you know, like the La Mer Soft Fluid I love and loathe myself for loving!), I’d definitely go for two smaller-sized... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

The lives of vineyard owners and winemakers are far more unglamorous and unpredictable than you'd think

The romance associated with winemaking often falls away in the face of the hard work required for the business. Charles O'Rear/Getty Images Running a vineyard can be a complicated balancing act between multiple sides of the business. Weather is a merciless wild card - wildfires, freezes, and hailstorms can kill nearly a year's worth of grapes.

The love spy: how I became a relationship detective

As a teen, Daniella Isaacs sneaked a peek at her mother’s private journal – and was surprised at what she read.

I was 14, that despicable adolescent age when my friends were desperate to swap body fluids and I just wanted to stay home and do magic tricks. I found the sacred book one Saturday night when...

How do we talk to teens about sex in a world of porn?

Teenage boys’ easy access to violent sexual images is creating a crisis for them – and for women, argues the anti-porn campaignerViolence against women is never far from the news, but currently it is high on the agenda – and porn features again and again as a factor. From the murder of Sarah Everard to the paltry sentence handed down to Sam Pybus, the latest man to use the so-called “rough sex defence”, it seems the world is riven with misogyny.Sarah’s killer Wayne Couzens was attracted to “brut...

Little did they know that ‘boomeranging’ back home would change the way they saw their parents, foreverWhen David and Linda Ellis sent their daughter Juliette, the youngest of their three children, off to college in 2019, they figured they had become empty-nesters for good. In short order, the couple downsized from their family home in Raleigh, North Carolina, to a much more manageable three-bedroom apartment rental nearby.

A History of Gold: How Amouage Started its Saga

Even though I’ve got a perfectly good and helpful therapist, who’s helped me a lot in the three years since I was diagnosed with stupid cancer aged 43, I’m finding that the thing I want to do is probably quite female and when I mentioned it to him, he said: “That’s what women do.” Long story short: happily married ...
