Lebanese Green Beans with Tomatoes (Loobyeh)

Out of Office Travel Bag Essentials!

My goal is to always have a well-stocked travel bag at the ready; packable, portable and chic beauty products that go the distance wherever I’m headed. I have an upcoming business trip and have just finished packing my “out of office” travel bag. Many retailers are now devoting entire sections to travel beauty, and the category is expected to keep growing. I can’t get through the line at Sephora, stocked with travel sizes, without picking up at least one or two things. Plus, the mini sizes ar...

Button-Down Shirts Are Gaining Momentum

The shirts I’m talking about today are not soft and silky button-down blouses. These button-downs — also referred to as button-through or button-up tops — are SHIRTS and there is a difference. They are more stiff than the silky blouse variety, and look more like a traditional menswear item. I know that some cotton, linen-blend, velvet and flannel shirts are soft and drapey, but when they’re in that typical menswear silhouette, they’re shirts and not blouses in my mind. This collection shows exam...

There are 2 types of god. Only one is within the boundary of science.

Science is about natural law, while religion is about ethics. As long as you keep these two separate, Kaku says, there's no problem at all. Problems arise, however, when the natural sciences begin to "pontificate upon ethics" and when religious people begin to pontificate about natural law. Albert Einstein believed in the "god of Spinoza" — not a personal god, but one who has set order and harmony in the fabric of the universe. "You can put the laws of physics as we know them on a simple sheet o...

The Best Hair and Makeup Trends From the Spring 2020 Runways Are Too Fun to Ignore

The Spring 2020 shows have come and gone, and in their wake are a whole lot of beauty trends to get inspired by. And here's the thing: you don't need to wait six months to start playing around with the hair and makeup looks we saw on the runways. Thanks to social media, the idea of strict, seasonal trends is a thing of the past. If this Winter you want to want to put a flower in your hair like the models wore at Etam, or apply a fluoro-orange shade of lipstick like the one we saw at Versace, go ...

Camila Mendes's Latest Nail Polish Color Is a Power Move, and It's So Fitting

On Riverdale, Camila Mendes plays Veronica Lodge, the headstrong and passionate daughter of the Lodge family who is often the first on the scene when a new mystery sweeps the town. In real life, Mendes is just as empowered in her projects (including her recent one with Secret deodorant), and while it is likely circumstantial, her latest nail polish just so happens to be this year's boldest color. Mendes debuted a glossy black nail polish painted on short nails. Since she wore the look at her rec...

The "Side Tip" Nail Art Trend May Be Your Next Go-To If You're Over the French Manicure

While the french manicure has been everywhere lately, some nail artists are choosing to put a modern twist on the look with the "side french tip" nail trend. The look includes straight lines drawn diagonally across the nail, from one side to the center of the tip. Kylie Jenner's go-to nail artist Chaun P. has been highlighting the trend on Instagram, referring to it as "side tips," and showing different variations of the trend on his clients. Many people are choosing to wear side tips in the cl...

How Our Editors Would Spend $25 on Beauty Products at the Drugstore

The best things in life are free, sure, but the not-far-behind second best - beauty products, what else? - can really add up, especially if you're just starting to devise a routine. And while there's something to be said for investing in yourself, there are some makeup, hair, and skincare buys that belie the price point. The key is knowing where to look (and, spoiler alert, it's in the neighboring aisle of Kleenex to help you with those happy tears). Yep, the beauty section at the drugstore is j...

Extravertierte Freunde: Für die Lauten in meinem Leben

Dieser Artikel erschien zuerst bei im gegenteil! Mir ist ein Fehler im System meiner Kolumne aufgefallen.

The Kosas 10 Second Eye Shadow Made Me Completely Rethink Liquid Shadow

Ordinarily, I'm not a huge fan of liquid eye shadows. I find that many of them crease, are too sheer, and flake off once dry. That's why I was surprised to find a collection I actually want to add to my already-packed daily makeup bag. When the Kosas 10 Second Eyeshadow ($28) first crossed my desk in the shades Element, Waterfall, and Fahrenheit, I was intrigued by the watery texture and "shake well" instructions on the frosted tube. The unique consistency was enough to convince me to give the c...

New Skincare and Skincare Gift Sets Available Now at Ulta

I find that more and more people that read my blog have started concentrating more on their skincare.

I always like when the Holiday season rolls around because it means a lot of different skincare sets launch making it easy to try new products at a fraction of the cost. I’ve selected some new sk...
