Phytosurgence Dew of Dawn Spectral Shine Radiance Balm Review & Swatches

Dew of Dawn Phytosurgence Dew of Dawn Spectral Shine Radiance Balm ($26.01 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a satin sheen.

The Overture Center's "Evening With David Sedaris," originally slated for April 27, 2020, finally took place last night.

I adore David Sedaris — and listen to his audiobooks probably more than anyone — so I'd bought 2 tickets, for me and Meade. But when the rescheduled date finally came around, there was some new fine print: "All who enter building must wear a face mask and show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test with a photo ID." It's stuffy inside that mask, and it's harder to laugh out loud. Some of the laughing in an audience is social. You want to be seen to be laughing, enjoying yourself, but if ...

Major US tech firms keep pushing back their return-to-office deadlines. Maybe it's time to admit defeat.

TIMOTHY A. CLARY/AFP via Getty Images Google, Lyft, and Meta have all pushed their mandatory office return in the last two weeks. This has happened before, and it's a sign that setting a hard deadline isn't working logistically. Plus, requiring workers to come back to the office has many of them frustrated and mystified. When it comes to a mandatory return to the office, it may be time for employers to admit defeat. In the last two weeks alone, some of the biggest tech companies in th...

I’m a long-distance dad so Covid was terrible – but it helped me let go of my guilt

I worried so much about not seeing my son, who lives in Canada, during Covid, but then I realised that he was fine – and being very well looked afterGetting to Canada from the UK in August 2020 was a faff, as you might expect mid-pandemic. There was lots of stress – tests and isolation, rules, regulations and forms. I was doing the preparations at my mum’s. She could see I was getting upset and insisted on taking over, assuming I was being pathetic. Within five minutes, she had lost it as well. ...

My mother failed to protect me from sexual abuse as a child
