Mented Cosmetics Vacay Bronzer Review & Swatches

Vacay Mented Cosmetics Vacay Bronzer ($22.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that seemed finely-milled but also a little drier as a powder. It was easiest to apply and blend out over a lightly-set, more luminous base, but it seemed to emphasize my skin’s texture and slight dryness when applied directly on bare skin or if...

ColourPop Pop a Cork, Fizzy with It, Sippy Sippy Lux Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Pop a Cork ColourPop Pop a Cork Lux Gloss ($8.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a very pale, yellowy-gold tinted gloss base with flecks of iridescent sparkle throughout. It had just a smattering of shimmer/sparkle, so it yielded a lot of high-shine and some twinkle but wasn’t as impactful as other shimmery glosses might be (which may be just what you’re looking for!). The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky texture that was on the thicker side, but I d...

Podcast #764: Prototype Your Way to a Better Life

I used to wake up early, around 5:15, and do my workout right after getting out of bed. But I noticed I was tired all day, and just felt kind of stiff and not very strong during my workouts. So I decided to try waking up a couple hours later, and doing my workouts in the late afternoon instead. I found that setting up my schedule this way gave me greater energy, both overall, and during my workouts. My guest says that this tinkering I did with my routine is an example of life prototyping, a p...

Introvertiert, extrovertiert & ambivertiert – helfen oder hindern uns diese Labels?

Vom Myers-Briggs-Persönlichkeitstest erfuhr ich bei meinem ersten Job in einem Start-up-Unternehmen mit Anfang 20, als wir alle den Test machten. Dieser ordnet dich einem von 16 möglichen Temperamenttypen zu. Der Test wurde während des Zweiten Weltkriegs von Mutter und Tochter Katharine Cook Briggs und Isabel Briggs Myers entwickelt und sollte Frauen, die zum ersten Mal ins Berufsleben eintreten, dabei helfen, zu verstehen, welche Jobs am besten für sie geeignet wären.

Mein Freundeskreis zerbricht gerade – aber das ist okay

Die ersten Facebook-Fotos von mir stammen von 2007. Darauf bin ich 13 Jahre alt, habe sorgfältig geglättete Haare und tonnenweise schwarzen Eyeliner im Gesicht, und sitze mit sechs anderen Mädchen vor einer Reihe aus Schließfächern. Jedes der Mädchen hat genauso geglättete Haare und Waschbär-Augen.  Ihre Namen sind wohl für alle Ewigkeit in mein Gedächtnis gebrannt: Sarah-Annie-Ellie-Amanda-Maggie-Sophie – und ich. Selbst heute kann ich diese Namen genauso locker runterrattern wie das Alphabe...

Is the ‘cozy season’ trend a secret cry for help?

Coziness has become a powerful aesthetic, but are we using it to chase a feeling that the outside world denies us?Take a peek on social media, and it’s obvious we are burrowed deep within “cozy season”. It surrounds us with clouds of neutral-toned knits and the steam of freshly-brewed hot drinks. Our socks encase our ankles with seasonal droopiness. Our beanies threaten to envelop our entire heads in their snuggly embrace. We have a candle burning, a new book ready to crack. We are not getting u...
