Dior House of Dreams (739) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

House of Dreams (739) Dior House of Dreams (739) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday release that included four more neutral shades (three shimmers, one matte) accented by a metallic silver in the center. The three lighter shimmers were more prone to running together, so the palette didn’t produce a lot of different looks as a result. The quality was there, though, as the eyesha...

Marc Jacobs Perfect Intense: A Popcorn Daffodil Like You’ve Never Smelled Before

I wasn’t a fan of the original Perfect by Marc Jacobs, let down by its anything-nothing floral DNA that (to my nose) did not carry anything it promised – the rhubarb was scant and hidden by musk, the almond imperceptible above the ambroxan and pear notes, and the cashmeran took up far too much space of the whole. With Perfect Intense, the brand has given us something completely different, and ... Read full article: Marc Jacobs Perfect Intense: A Popcorn Daffodil Like You’ve Never Smelled Before...

Don’t Wait Until Spring! Why Fall Cleaning is Way Better for Your Home & Health!

Everyone knows the frenzy that can begin when spring dawns after a brutal winter. The windows open up, the fresh air comes in, and we get the sense to chuck everything before summer.   But waiting for spring cleaning can have some drawbacks, and our homes can get a little unkempt during the second half of the year. So why wait to clean just once a year?  A great real estate broker will tell you that a clean house sells much faster than a dirty one, as dirt and clutter are often assoc...

My Purpose was Hidden Behind My Greatest Obstacles

I truly believe that before I came into this world, God asked me ‘what would you like to do in this life?’ And I responded, ‘I want to teach about self-reliance.’ And God said, ‘then we better get your butt into an orphanage.’ – Dr. Wayne Dyer You know the movie scene where the ship captain sees weather on the horizon, and when the storm hits, he’s up in the crow’s nest cursing the wrath of God? That was me in my early twenties. Angry, depressed, overweight, addicted – lost at sea. But...

To the modern Western mind, Byzantium is a land of wonder and luxury, almost mythical in its beauty and fatality.

The 6 Fire Lays Every Man Should Know

Every man should know how to build a fire. But every outdoor situation requires different types of campfire lays (set-ups in the firewood), so it’s imperative to know how to make more than one kind. Here we highlight six of the most common and useful fire lays. Teepee Fire Lay There’s a reason this is the go-to campfire lay for most outdoorsmen: it’s very easy to get a fire going with a teepee lay. It’s also a great fire for cooking and warmth. The one downside of a teepee fire lay is that it...

As many as 2.7 million 'missing workers' haven't returned to the workforce because they have a financial cushion thanks to unemployment benefits and stimulus checks

A "help wanted" sign is posted outside of Dunkin Donuts in Boston. Jessica Rinaldi/The Boston Globe/Getty Images JPMorgan estimates 36% of workers haven't returned to work because they have a financial cushion. Unemployment, stimulus checks, and rising home values have boosted savings for many households. Still, the median balance for lower-earning households is only about $1,000. The tight labor market could be at least partly explained by a larger-then-usual financial cushion among A...

Here's what's keeping 7.5 million 'missing' workers out of the labor force

A "help wanted" sign is posted outside of Dunkin Donuts in Boston. Jessica Rinaldi/The Boston Globe/Getty Images JPMorgan estimates 36% of workers haven't returned to work because they have a financial cushion. Other "missing" groups include early retirees, immigrant workers, and the newly self-employed. Another 25% are likely staying out of the workforce due to COVID fears and child-care constraints. The tight labor market could be at least partly explained by a larger-then-usual fina...

Why Air India going back to Tatas could be an example of successful privatisation

Tata’s management efficiency will allow Air India to better exploit operating assets like the lucrative routes to South east Asia, Latin America and Australia. With simple improvements in consistency of service, Air India’s existing bilaterals are goldmines.

Dior Hologlam Rouge Blush Review & Swatches (2021)

Hologlam (601) Dior Hologlam (601) Rouge Blush ($46.00 for 0.23 oz.) has a light-medium, peachy-coral base with flecks of iridescent pink and violet sparkle throughout a more satin-like finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out readily. On my skin tone, the color came through subtly, but the shimmer/sheen was more noticeable as it contrasted against the base color and my skin tone....

Have your preferences changed for what you like in a blush? (If so, how?)

Sort of. I’d say that I prefer buildable, more medium-coverage blush with some shimmer, which I’ve kind of preferred for a very long time, but I definitely don’t bother (personally! as a favorite!) with really intensely pigmented formulas in deeper tones, and I rarely will favor a matte blush. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Wie Zähneknirschen meine Beziehung ruiniert

Es ist 1:30 Uhr. Ich liege wach, obwohl ich hundemüde bin. Der Grund? Mein Verlobter knirscht mit den Zähnen und dieses furchtbare Geräusch lässt mir keine Ruhe. R. hat keine Ahnung davon, was gerade passiert und schläft friedlich mit unserem Hund neben seinen Beinen zusammengerollt vor sich hin. Deshalb kann ich es einfach nicht über mich bringen, ihn aufzuwecken. Deshalb drehe ich mich um, atme tief ein und aus und versuche, sein Knirschen zu ignorieren, aber es gelingt mir einfach nicht.

Alles, was du über eine Wimpernverlängerung wissen solltest

Manche Menschen verlassen das Haus niemals ohne Lippenstift oder einen Spritzer Parfum. Ich verlasse das Haus nie ohne Mascara. Warum? Weil ich mich damit wach und irgendwie “fertig” fühle. Perfekt gestylte, geschminkte Wimpern erfordern aber eben auch Zeit und Mühe – und genau deswegen habe ich schon immer mit der Idee geliebäugelt, mir die Wimpern verlängern zu lassen. Wimpernverlängerungen sind natürlich nichts Neues, aber inzwischen leichter verfügbar, günstiger und besser denn je...

Not Everyone Needs To Follow Their Passion

Everyone nowadays thinks that the pinnacle of self-expression and self-actualization is to follow your passion. The thinking goes that you must be passionate about work or you are basically dead and living a worthless life. In fact, this has become somewhat of a litmus test to assess whether we are living a good life or even whether we are living a valuable life. It seems that the common thinking has become that if we don’t follow our passions, then we are wasting our life, that we are aslee...

Sex, Love and Goop review – coming to a bedroom near you: Gwyneth Paltrow

Last year, she didn’t know a clitoris from a vulva. Now, Gwynnie’s all clued up on the female anatomy – and diving deep into the nitty-gritty of intimacy and orgasms. Result!Released on Netflix last year, The Goop Lab was Gwyneth Paltrow’s first foray into “factual” television. Amid endless talk of energy fields and snowga (yoga, in the snow), there was one must-watch moment: when Gwynnie, the undisputed leader of women’s wellness culture and pelvic steaming advocate, realised she didn’t actuall...

Why Eoin Morgan should definitely stand in the way of a World Cup win

We’re gravely worried about Eoin Morgan. We’re worried he’s lost sight of the basics. Speaking to Sky Sports earlier this week, Morgan suggested that he would consider dropping himself if he couldn’t regain batting form. He did however also make a point of saying that he’d come out of every spell of poor form he’d ever had, which kind of makes it sound like he can’t actually envisage circumstances where this whole ‘dropping yourself’ thing would actually apply. That wasn’t the worrying b...

The Sun is Up

B ut I can still see the Moon. There are so many things I could say here, but I just can't find the quiet time. Checking things off the to-do list. Almost.  Distracted by that. And confused by a troubled world.  Still. Taking a bit of time to stitch. And see the beauty in the fallen. We are not in the middle of nowhere. But this piece of land can sure make it seem that way.
