Why Policing is the Perfect Career for a Housewife Looking for a Change

Sometimes in life, all we want is a little bit of change. There is nothing wrong with admitting to the fact that you are ready for something different, as can often be the case if you have been a housewife for a few years. Being a stay-at-home mother can be rewarding, and it is totally subjective as to how enticing this is depending on who you are; however, if you are ready for a bit of a change, you may be looking for some kind of employment.  Again, the type of employment you go for w...

Danessa Myricks Truth Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Truth Danessa Myricks Truth Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a blackened purple with warmer, brownish undertones and flecks of copper and violet sparkle throughout. When it was more opaque, it had a cooler, purpler hue, but the sheerer it was applied, the browner it appeared. I struggled to apply it as a cheek color as it looked quite patchy, which made it look like a legitimate bruise. It was easier to get a plummy effect on m...

ColourPop Melty & Missin' U Blotted Lip Reviews & Swatches

Melty ColourPop Melty Blotted Lip (2021) ($8.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to semi-sheer coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin, and non-clingy, despite having no traditional creaminess; thankfully, it had more of a velvety glide, so it was still comfortable to apply. It lasted for three hours and fe...

Three Musks by Nicolai Parfumeur Createur

For me, modern musk in perfumery is a difficult subject. Because, usually, I can't stand them. Even in the most delicate fragrances from the Les Exclusifs de Chanel series and in Narciso Rodriguez' fashionable creations musks are razor-thin and razor-sharp. I have no choice but to put up with them. However, a razor hidden in a floral bouquet or fresh-smelling linen is not the worst manifestation...

The Manly Art of Hospitality

We don’t typically think of hospitality as a manly thing. And indeed, it is typically the women in our lives who more often take charge of throwing parties, cooking meals, and preparing the guest room for visitors. But for thousands of years, offering hospitality was considered an essential part of being a man and living with honor. While many ancient cultures had a code of honor which required the practice of hospitality, this code was especially typified by the form it took amongst the Greeks...

Podcast #766: The Real (Decidedly-Less-Sentimental-Yet-Still-Wonderful) Story of WWI’s Christmas Truce

One of the most famous stories to come out of World War I is that of the “Christmas Truce” of 1914, in which German and British forces engaged in a spontaneous and unofficial ceasefire and spent the holiday fraternizing with each other. In the popular imagination, the Christmas Truce was a time in which enemies put aside their differences to sing carols, exchange gifts, and even play soccer, and represented a sentimental flowering of peace and goodwill. How much of the popular legend around t...

The person who got me through 2021: Huey Morgan comforted me amid a deluge of human waste
