Farmhouse Refresh: An Antiques Dealer’s Clean and Simple Family Retreat on Shelter Island

Pre-marriage and pre-kids, antiques dealer Jonathan Burden and costume designer JJ Joseph spent summer weekends in a group share on Shelter Island situated off the eastern tip of Long Island, New York. Both are people who gravitate to the old and untouched, so they couldn’t help but admire the scraggly farmhouse across the way.”It had fantastic old trees and the house itself was always empty,” says Jonathan. “It was clearly a gem that needed to polished and that’s what I do.” Several years later...

Jumping Down a John Voelker Rabbit Hole

The other day I came across an article that the American Museum of Fly Fishing posted on their website called "The Fishing Notes of John Voelker, Michigan's Mightiest Piscator" and found it to be a really wonderful read.You may or may not know who John Voelker is, or you may know him as his pen name, Robert Traver.  I learned to fly fish over twenty some years ago in northern Michigan and "Trout Magic" and "Trout Madness" were, and still are, considered required and favorites reads.   I'm always...

The Birth of Drugstore Cleansing Balms in the US is Upon Us

The birth of drugstore cleansing balms is the US is upon us! Pond’s Cleansing Balm recently launched and is one of the first mainstream drugstore brands to bring a cleansing balm to US drugstores. Ok, so, you can argue you that point as there have been a few others such as NYX Stripped Off Cleansing Balm, Yes to Coconut Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm, and Equate Wipe the Day Away Cleansing Balm were around way before Pond’s every entered the scene. But I think Pond’s is definitely a more mainstre...

Sunscreens That Won't Make You Break Out, Because That's Not Cool

The moment when you suddenly realize you're an adult can come amid a seemingly random activity — depositing money in your newly-formed 401k, making dinner that consists of something other than almond milk and cereal, leading your first department meeting at work. For us, though, that moment came when we finally mastered the fine art of applying sunscreen.Finding your perfect SPF number and knowing exactly when you need to reapply, and how often, made us feel like we had become true, responsible...

Icelandair Buying Wow Air: End of Low Cost Europe Fares Coming?

Low cost transatlantic carrier Primera has gone out of business while Wow Air cuts routes. Norwegian is selling planes and could still be acquired by British Airways parent IAG. The market for flying passengers across the Pond at low prices is being shaken up. There was too much capacity pushing down prices too far especially as fuel prices rise. Now it looks like we're seeing some actual consolidation in this market. Continue reading Icelandair Buying Wow Air: End of Low Cost Europe Fares Com...

Pond’s Cleansing Balm Review

Pond’s Cleansing Balm and Makeup Remover ($9.99) is a new solid, rose scented balm that turn emulsifies when water is added. There have been a few cleansing balms that launched at drugstores this past year like NYX Stripped Off Cleansing Balm and Yes to Coconut Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm but I think Pond’s Cleansing Balm actually nailed the formula in a way both of these formulas did not. This is very close to the popular Banila Co Clean It Zero out of Korea in terms of consistency and texture....

9 Genius Latina Beauty Hacks That Everyone Should Know

American Hockey League seasons can be difficult to forecast. Until the puck is dropped, you can’t know how prospects, veterans, and everyone in between will come together on the ice.

Transatlantic Business Class From $650 One Way

Business class fares originating in Europe to the US are often cheaper than fares which originate in the U.S. I occasionally see $1000 roundtrip fares originating in Europe. Last year there was even a $400 one-way Europe-US fare on Star Alliance member TAP Air Portugal. TAP is back with amazing fares across the Pond, originating in Europe. You can book them either one way (Europe to U.S.) or roundtrip (Europe – U.S. – Europe). In fact $651 or $656 one way fares are available most days from mid-...

Following Pittsburgh’s Aviation Roller Coaster Ride Through Its London Flight

British Airways has decided to return to Pittsburgh starting April 2, 2019 with a four-times weekly flight to London’s Heathrow Airport on a 787. This flight alone seems like a natural extension of BA’s efforts to penetrate into mid-size US cities with its 787, but this isn’t the first time Pittsburgh has seen a London flight. There is a larger story to be told here. You can actually track Pittsburgh’s fortunes just by looking at the history of this London route over the years. While any city...
