Why It’s Time To Embrace The Athleisure Trend

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the athleisure fashion trend is exploding in popularity as people discover that it’s a lot more comfortable while they are doing Zoom meetings and homeschooling their kids. Since lots of people expect to work from home for the foreseeable future, there’s no longer any reason to dress up in uncomfortable formal attire for a day of office work. Not only that, but comfortable clothes that can go from taking a Zoom meeting to getting in some yoga poses to...

Spicematic 11.2 Pierre Guillaume Paris and its Family Members

In the spring of 2020, French niche brand Pierre Guillaume Paris presented the new fragrance Spicematic 11.2 - the third variation uniting spices and aromatic herbs. Its character is reflected in the name: Spicematic is made from the words Spice and Aromatic. This family was started in 2011 with Harmatan Noir 11 and then continued in 2016 with Indian Wood 11.1. As Pierre Guillaume explains, the ... Read full article: Spicematic 11.2 Pierre Guillaume Paris and its Family Members from Fragrantic...

Zaran’t You Glad I Sorted Through the Good and Bad So You Didn’t Have To?

This summer I gave birth to two very different encounters with a selection of perfumes from Zara. In the adjoining text, I had a good, hard think, scratching at the edges of an existential crisis staged in the derivative logics of affordable dupes chasing after current or recently current trends and tastes among perfume consumers in an economy of data-driven fast fashion. It can be read here —�... Read full article: Zaran’t You Glad I Sorted Through the Good and Bad So You Didn’t Have To? from ...

Warum sprechen manche Kamala Harris’ Namen falsch aus? Rassismus.

Mandatory Credit: Photo by Michele Eve Sandberg/Shutterstock (10742432a) On August 11, 2020 former VP Joe Biden named Kamala Harris as his running mate, making the California senator the first Black and South Asian American woman to run on a major political party’s presidential ticket.

Strawberry Coffee Cake | Eggless Baking

Strawberries may seem like an odd choice in a baked product, but they actually taste really yummy enveloped in a sweet batter cake. They cook and become incredibly soft and jammy. You almost feel like you are eating a jam cake with all the best flavors surrounding it - vanilla, cinnamon, strawberry. The crunch of the cinnamon sugar adds a wonderful texture to the finished product. There are two ways (well, so many actually!!) to enjoy this cake. The first is warm with a good vanilla ice crea...

Ho Hang Club Balenciaga: Black Means Masculine

There are no fragrances more similar in name and different in character than Ho Hang and Ho Hang Club. The first is a soapy-n-honeyed dense fougere, the second is a spicy chypre with an amber-leather base. The first tells about the morning's  hygienic rituals and is quite suitable for ladies, while the second shows its strong and elegant masculine character. Why did it happen that they are so dif...

Here’s the Face Mask I’m Feeling Safe in Lately And It Won’t Fog Up Your Glasses

‘Ello ‘ello! I hope you’re well today! It’s almost Friday yay! That doesn’t mean much nowadays but it does mean a bit of relaxation from work right? And I can sure use it because it’s been a bit of a busy week over here! I was talking to a very lovely reader and new friend on Instagram a few days ago and she’s a teacher here in New York and has to go back to school in the next month. I sure hope she’ll be ok and safe! It has to be hard being a teacher right now I’m sure. If it’s your job ...

Scientists haven’t found any major differences between women’s and men’s brains

People have searched for sex differences in human brains since at least the 19th century, when scientist Samuel George Morton poured seeds and lead shot into human skulls to measure their volumes. Gustave Le Bon found men's brains are usually larger than women's, which prompted Alexander Bains and George Romanes to argue this size difference makes men smarter. But John Stuart Mill pointed out, by this criterion, elephants and whales should be smarter than people. So focus shifted to the relati...

How Should Managers Deal With Bringing Employees Back To The Office?

Different approaches have to be taken to get workers to come back Image Credit: Brenda Kochevar There is no question that the Covid-19 pandemic changed everything. One day we were all in the office getting along and then the next day everyone was at home using Zoom to video conference with each other. As life slowly starts to try to get back to normal, managers have a real challenge on their hands. The Covid-19 virus has not gone away and yet we’d still like to restart our normal of...

Total Recall: Salvador Dali

   Salvador Dali was not advertised in Burda Moden, yet somehow many of us, including myself, learned about the perfume's existence from that magazine: a photograph of the fragrance and a very short description - just four lines - first appeared in Burda Moden's May 1989 issue (see photo below). Neither the perfume released in 1983, nor the parfum de toilette that appeared in 1985 were t... Read full article: Total Recall: Salvador Dali from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

Top Sex Positions Not to Get Pregnant

Sex is an incredible way to spend time with your partner, isn’t it? But, let’s face it, things sometimes get not that warm and fuzzy when your period is late. Nothing is worse than getting pregnant out of the blue when you’re far from being ready for a baby. That’s how many girls get pregnant against their will. Probably every girl thought at least once in life that she was pregnant due to some reasons. According to the research on NIH, 50% of pregnancies in the US are undesirable. Can you bel...

Bogart Jacques Bogart: The First Perfume

The name of the fragrance sounds like the famous phrase of Agent 007, "Bond. James Bond." Bogart. Jacques Bogart. In the circles of Russian perfumery fans in Russia, it is simply called the "Pen," after the ink pen depicted on the scent box. (In English-speaking countries, they prefer to call it "Signature.") This is the debut fragrance of the brand, created by Jacques and Regina Conckier in 19...

Eyebrow Essentials: Choosing The Best Tweezers

If you’re wondering how to choose the best tweezers out of all of them, you might be disappointed – there is no one ideal tweezer type! The variety of tweezer types all feature their own individual properties and characteristics that will work better for different purposes. Based on your own eyebrows and personal preference, you will likely find the best ones for you. There are plenty to pick from so choosing the best tweezers can be quite overwhelming, especially for beginner stylists. Wi...

Let’s Hope The Bath and Body Works Keeps Sunset Glow Around a Really Long Time

Bath and Body Works Sunset Glow is a late Summer 2020 fragrance released that just needs to stay around forever. I really hope they decide to make this a permanent scent because it’s really perfect. Sometimes Bath and Body Works does these one of scents. You know what I mean right? Those scents that don’t really belong to a collection nor do they follow a theme of a new floor set that they do. It’s just a one off scent that they release from time to time. This is why I think and I hope t...

Hard Candy Syrup Kiss Lip Stain Doesn’t Stain But It Does Give Me Zombie Lips

Hard Candy Syrup Kiss Lip Stain ($6) is a new lip stain that acts as a creamy lipgloss. You know me! I love a good lip stain! I used to be a fond fan of Morgen Schick’s Schick Stick when that was a thing in a beauty life far in the past. I’ve always just favorite lip and cheek stain especially when I was younger and not quite yet into heavy duty eyeshadow and blush. I also happen to still very much love them for days I just want something quick to slick on my lips for a quick wash of color that...

Grrr! Is it ok to buy some new lip sets from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and tuck them away for a time face masks aren’t a thing anymore?

10 Reasons to Have a Library Card

For many of us, the library is not a place we remember anymore. If I ask my friends right now about it, they would not even know where one is located. Some might not even be able to guarantee that one exists. I conducted a survey at the front door of the grocery store where a library was located within walking distance and got the following results. Last Time You Went to The Library Within the last 12 months: 15.7% Within the last 5 years but longer than 12 months: 7.8% Longer than 5 years: 76...
