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 ...

What the scarf-mask tells us about fashion in the new normal

As seen on everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Amber Heard, this aesthetic and virus-preventing statement is a win-winThe first must-have look of the “new normal” doesn’t have a designer label, or a hefty price tag. In fact, you probably already have what you need in a drawer somewhere. And while this may not stand as concrete proof that lockdown truly has ushered in a new era of shared community identity and mindful consumerism, I see no reason why we can’t take it as a cheering sign.The scar...

Whisk Whiskers Away with This Grape Bubblegum-Scented Waxing Kit

I’m just saying if it wasn’t for the Glee The Face Wax Kit I would be a monkey by now. I picked up a Glee Face Wax Hair Removal Strip at when things were really bad in New York and a trip to get my eyebrows or upper lip waxed was not in the future (and still isn’t because hello, that’s so scary right now!). I’ve been using these for the past four months in place of keeping my normal waxing appointing and they work a treat. Keep in mind I’ve tried a few different brands of wax st...

Revlon x WW84 Celebrates Makeup Inspired by Wonder Woman (Maybe!)

Revlon x WW84 is a new makeup collection inspired by Wonder Woman and the new Wonder Woman 1984 Movie that is starting to launch in stores in preparation for the movie release in October. The movie was supposed to be a major Summer blockbuster but with the pandemic the launch got pushed two different times and finally a Fall 2020 date was set. I dunno about you but movie theaters in New York aren’t yet open or at least the ones around my area aren’t. I believe they open after Phase 4 is compl...

Everyday Parsi: Homi Gandhi

Our third author in the Everyday Parsi 2020 is Homi D. Gandhi Homi writes… When I was a child, Muktaad prayers at the Gandhi household on the Gandhi Street of Parsiwad, Fort, Bharuch had a special significance, as it was one of the few Parsi homes hosting the 18-day Fasli Muktaad at home. Although I had participated in the rituals, I was very young and unaware of their significance. Sometime in February 1946, my Bapaiji (paternal grandmother) confided in me that our community handyman,...

The last of the Zoroastrians

My grandfather had never been a tall man, and now he looked absurdly small, no bigger than a child. Swaddled in off-white sheets like a newborn, with just his head and the soles of his feet visible, his eyes were open and mouth disconcertingly agape, as if in surprise. His corpse was slightly raised from the floor, lain atop a rickety wooden stretcher. Beside the body, three priests in white robes intoned in Avestan, the long-dead language of the Zoroastrian scriptures, as a small fire burned i...

We tried an at-home gel manicure kit. Here’s how it went. | Damn you, social media ads

During the Covid pandemic, we’ve seen people do some wild things to get their nails done. There have been the women doing manicures through the mail slots in their front doors. There’s the mobile manicure truck that’s cruising around New York. And, as the ads all over Instagram and Facebook have let me know…there seem to […]

My Bath and Body Works Shopping Experience During the Pandemic

Wondering what it’s like shopping at Bath and Body Works during the pandemic? Here’s my experience at Bath and Body Works during the pandemic and how I’ll likely will stick to shopping online until this is over. Ok, soooooo….. Bath and Body Works opened in New York a few short weeks ago but I avoided going to stores because I was still feeling pretty paranoid about going into stores and I was also seeing long lines due to the fact that Semi-Annual Sale had started and I was really not wanti...

Saklatvala Mausoleum in New York

An email from my friend Kersi Shroff tipped me off on what turned out to be a great treasure hunt in search of the Saklatvala Mausoleum in the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx in New York City. Kersi writes… The Woodlawn Cemetery has cuneiform inscription on the tomb of the then well-known Phirozshah Saklatvalla, whose mother was the sister of Jamshedi Nusserwanji Tata. Phirozshah became a U.S. Citizen in 1904, making him one of the earliest non-whites to be granted citizenship. Prof. John ...

Here’s a Love List and All The Info You Need About Gotham At the Moment

Wakey wakey! It’s almost Friday! The weekend looms ahead and I’m ready to live deliciously!

New Digital Archive Opens Access to Thousands of Digitized African American Funeral Programs (1886-2019)

Funeral rites, burials, and other rituals are held near-universally sacred, not only due to religious and cultural beliefs about death: We preserve our connection to our ancestors through the records of their births and deaths. For many Black Americans in the U.S. south, grief and loss have been compounded by centuries of violence and tragedy, but funerals have still tended to be “celebrations of life” rather than mournful events, says Derek Mosley, archivist at the Auburn Avenue Research Libra...

Due to the Pandemic I Purchased the Following Makeup and Beauty Products

What’s your life in quarantine been like? Are you slowly creeping outside like me and my follow Gothamites or are you closing yourself inside still? My life has rebooted, restarted, and it’s slowing moving forward.

The power of touch: when my son visited in lockdown, we couldn't hug. It was a reminder of the saddest truth

My son’s 14th birthday was the first he and I had spent apart – then he called to say his mother had Covid-19. We were faced with a reality I had hoped to forestall for everWelcome to the Guardian’s Power of Touch seriesWe Jacksons are not effusive types. There ain’t a helluva lot of hugging and touching at family gatherings. However, one of the few exceptions is my son, who’s been unfettered with his affections since he was toddling around his mother’s New Jersey home – he and I have never live...
