British agents smuggled tons of opium into China in exchange for tea, legally and illegally, taking sil...

Sind Dessous wirklich so sexy?

Als ich gerade in die Oberschule gekommen war, ging ich in einem Einkaufszentrum an Victoria’s Secret vorbei und fühlte einen Stich des Grauens beim Anblick der Fotos von den Models in Unterwäsche. Das war die Zukunft, die ich scheinbar herbeisehnen und anstreben sollte – eine Zukunft voller rüschenbesetzter Tangas und Spitzen-BHs, die mir noch zu groß waren, mit dem Ziel, sexy auszusehen und mich so zu fühlen. Schon als Teenie ließen mich Dessous eher kalt. Natürlich war ich nicht immun gegen d...

Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume A Dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540?

I’ve been trying to locate a bottle of Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume in stores since it launched but no luck. I’m finally just grabbing it at Target as it’s 25% off which kicked me into a blind buy purchase. Why is it sold out? Probably because everyone and their mom is saing that Pacifica Dream Moon Spray Perfume is a dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540 or at the very least Cloud. Don’t come for me but Ariana Grande’s R.E.M. Eau de Parfum smells a lot more like BR540 to my nose than Cloud. The...

A bar with no booze: ‘Anybody seeking to practice their sober pash skills should give it a try’

Australia’s first nonalcoholic bar has opened in Melbourne. So what is a bar for, if not for drinking?It must take steely nerve to open a new hospitality venture in the current climate.

The Iranian kings who thought the world revolved around them

While not as well-known as that of the Achaemenid dynasty (550–330 BC), the second Persian empire ruled by the Sasanian dynasty (AD 224–642) is a pivotal but often overlooked period of ancient Western Asian art and archaeological history. Standing at the cusp of the ancient and medieval worlds, the Sasanian empire was the last great Iranian empire to rule over Western Asia before the coming of Islam, extending at its height in the seventh century from the Nile to the Oxus. Over the course of lat...

That Damn Patrick Ta Fan Unlocked Beauty Products I Forgot About….!

We haven’t done a beauty blast from the past moment in ages! AGES! I tend to bring back all my vintage beauty on Instagram lately but I rarely do it on the blog anymore.

Victoria’s Secret to be spun off a year after sale collapsed

By MICHELLE CHAPMAN | Associated Press A year after an agreement to sell Victoria’s Secret fell apart as the pandemic emptied malls nationwide, the chain will be spun off by its owner to become a separate company.

Victoria’s Secret was to be sold to Sycamore Part...
