Jouer Passion Blush Bouquet Review & Swatches

Passion Jouer Passion Blush Bouquet ($30.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new blush duo that features a matte, dusty coral and a shimmering tangerine. Both shades had good pigmentation, were blendable, and lasted between eight and nine hours on me. I liked that the texture was more firmly-pressed in the pan, so they weren’t powdery and easier to work with across preferences (whether sheer, buildable, or full opacity was desired). ...

The 10 Best Indie Rock Albums of 2018

None Indie rock may be one of the most fluid and intangible terms currently imposed upon musicians. It holds no real indication of what the music will sound like, and many of the artists aren't even independent. But more than a sonic indicator, indie rock represents a spirit. It's a spirit found where folk songsters and punk rockers come together to dialogue about what they're fed up with in mainstream culture. In so doing they uplift each other and celebrate each other's unique qualities. He...

Remembering Randy Weston (1926-2018)—A True Musical Giant

On September 1, 2018, we lost a true musical giant, innovator, NEA Jazz Master, and a warrior for the elevation of African-American pride and culture. His compositions disseminating the richness and beauty of the African aesthetic are unparalleled. Randy Weston was born during an era of extreme racism, segregation, and discrimination in the United States. His life’s mission was one of unfolding the curtain that concealed the wonderful greatness and extraordinary accomplishments inherent on the A...

Randy Weston: Music is Life Itself

Video presentations and photography by Molly Sheridan Transcription by Julia Lu It has been more than three quarters of a century since the bebop revolution transformed how people made music together. So it is not surprising that so few musicians who came to prominence during that era are no longer with us, especially since so many—like Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, Herbie Nichols, Elmo Hope, Eric Dolphy, and on and on–had tragically short lives. But what is more surprising is that one of thes...

Solo Female Travel in New York City — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel to New York alone? Absolutely. And I would know: I’m a travel writer specializing in solo female travel who lives in New York City. Since moving here, dozens if not hundreds of women have asked me the same question: I want to visit New York, but is it safe if I go alone? I believe that with the proper research and preparation, almost anywhere in the world can be safely traveled by a woman on her own. And that goes for New York, too. Millions of women from around...

There's an Old Australian Bush Song

Almost every song in Cole Porter's Anything Goes score has a trick or a central joke to it.Now to be fair, that's not true of every song in the original 1934 production, which included some very conventional musical comedy songs, among its sharp satire. But with the 1962 revival, its deletion of those more conventional songs and the addition of quite a few Porter songs from other musicals -- the '62 revival essentially created a Porter "greatest hits" show, sort of like My One and Only.And with...

The Ultimate Guide To Cafes In The East Of Singapore – 30 Cafes To Explore

If there is one thing to be envious about those who live in the East, it is their close proximity to some of the best cafes in Singapore. As much as the rest of the population would hate to admit it, there is nowhere in Singapore where you are able to find such an extensive range of independent cafes, brew bars, ice cream parlours and dessert studios. In summary, the cafe scene in the east is nothing short of exciting—with new F&B projects and initiatives popping up every once in a while. We’ve...

The Biggest Mistakes New York Tourists Make

New York is a dream destination for so many travelers. And there are so many things to do in the city, it’s overwhelming. Perhaps that’s why so many tourists end up staying firmly on the beaten path, afraid to venture out of their comfort zone in the slightest. And they end up making the same mistakes over and over. As a New York resident, I’ve made it my mission to show travelers what NOT to do in New York. With a bit of careful planning, you can avoid the pitfalls to which so many tourists f...

Sweet Thai Chili Jam - Toast Topper #78 #ChileWeek

Think of a spreadable Sweet Thai Chili sauce perfect for topping cream cheese bagels, baking into brie or stirring into a stir fry. It hurts so good! If you've read some of the previous chile-laden goodies I've shared here on What Smells So Good?, you know I have a soft spot for spicy sauces that still manage to eke out some other flavours. May saw my version of a classic - Sweet Thai Chili Sauce - the homemade, grown-up version of my childhood "plum sauce and chili flake" concoction.This jam t...

The Majestic Malacca – You Must Stay In This Iconic Colonial Hotel In Malacca

For many Singaporeans, Malacca is a delightful place to go to for a short weekend getaway as the drive to the city is but a couple of hours. As part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, Malacca is also dubbed as the ‘Historical State’ due to its rich history as a colonised city under the Portuguese, Dutch and British rule. Having an accommodation that completes the entire experience is important for us when we travel too! The Majestic Malacca takes you all the way back to the 1920s when it used t...

A Gourmet Food Escape near the Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is arguably Australia’s most famous drive, but I’ll let you in on a secret: there’s so much more to the Great Ocean Road than the limestone cliffs and beaches its famous for. While the region may be known for tourism and dairy-farming, there’s a growing scene of artisan food and beverage producers, many of them award-winning. In many of the local stores around Port Campbell, you’ll spot a the 12 Apostle Gourmet Trail map showing a 75-kilometre loop starting in Port Campbell ...

The Arrogance of Country Folks

If you consider yourself "country folk"...oh you know who you are...and provided you can may want to stop now before you get your britches all in a bunch.

50 Ways To Use Spreadable Cheddar Cheese #ThisIsCheese

This post is sponsored by Alouette Cheese. In case you haven’t noticed from reading my recipes, I love cheese. I incorporate it into many recipes. In fact, my husband claims I can’t make a recipe without cheese. He’s wrong. (Nothing new, LOL.) I can but often choose not to. Besides cooking with cheese, I also like to eat it all by itself, and on different things like crackers. When I learned that Alouette had introduced their new Cheddar Collection, I could not turn down the opportunity to try...

Comment on peach melba popsicles by Tina

Yum!!!! These look like summer. I had never heard of Peach Melba until listening to a Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast episode on Nellie Melba. The podcast includes the story of the creation of the Peach Melba. Sounds like she was quite the interesting lady for her time “Her life was everything you’d expect from a diva: foods named for her, command performances and a scandalous royal affair.”

Comment on peach melba popsicles by Debby

Excepting the mutton chops, I remember those ’50s style restaurants. Delmonico’s and a dining room at the Plaza Hotel come first to mind. I haven’t had a peach Melba in years. But if you wanted to make this more healthy, why not add the purees to yogurt and have it for breakfast.
