Lancome Rosewood Ruby & Coeur de Ruby L'Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Rosewood Ruby (214) Lancome Rosewood Ruby (214) L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish.

I burned out working 4 jobs. This is how I rearranged my life to get away from hustle culture.

Rochi Zalani.Courtesy of Rochi Zalani Rochi Zalani worked three part-time jobs in addition to a full-time one after graduation. "Even unwinding had to be productive – not Netflix, but reading self-help books," she writes. She shares how she broke the spell and now works only five hours a day. Two years ago, I had a full-time job and was working on part-time side hustles. My obsession with being productive led me to feel burned out. I was only 20. My experience made me readjust my values.

500 Years of Haircuts: One Youtuber Tries Out the Hair Styles That Were Fashionable Between 1500 and 2000

“In Mankiewicz’s Julius Caesar, all the characters are wearing fringes,” writes Roland Barthes in his well-known essay on Romans in film. “Some have them curly, some straggly, some tufted, some oily, all have them well combed.” This fringe, Barthes argues, is “quite simply the label of Roman-ness”: when it comes onscreen, “no one can doubt that he is in Ancient Rome.” Ever since cinema first told historical tales, hair has been among its most effective visual shorthands with which to est...

So erkennst du, ob dein:e Partner:in emotional intelligent ist

Eine Frau wie mich zu daten, die sehr emotional und sensibel ist, ist nicht leicht. Meine Angst, als „verrückt“ abgestempelt zu werden, wurde irgendwann so überwältigend, dass ich lernte, meine Emotionen für mich zu behalten und so zu tun, als ob es völlig in Ordnung für mich sei, mit dem Strom zu schwimmen. Aber hin und wieder wird alles zu viel und ich kann meine Emotionen nicht länger zurückhalten. Dann schreibe ich dem Mann, den ich date, lange Nachrichten in der Hoffnung, dass er meine Sich...

I am not sure if it’s social phobia or stage fright, perhaps a bit of both. But I want it to stop. So I sign up for something that terrifies me – an improv classI am in the pub. It is dark, loud and at full capacity. Sitting with a group of people, my mind drifts towards something funny that happened at work. I wonder if it is funny enough to repeat and, if so, how it would sound if I were to say it out loud. I mouth the story to myself, word by word, trying out different intonations.Further ina...
