How To Choose The Perfect Commuter Bike

It’s officially summer now! Among other things, that means activity has picked up a lot in my online and local cycling groups. Aside from that, my job just started offering a commute club (aka, perks if you agree not to bring a car to work). Then Lexington finally got a bike share!

A Beauty & Fragrance Lover’s Guide to New York City

  I’ve been curious about the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership eyeshadow palettes ever since they came out. Stunning cover art, out of this world pigment in all the swatches I’ve seen, and a mix of everyday and editorial colors. Perfect, right? Unfortunately there’s nowhere remotely near me that I can try them out in person, so I’ve been trying to hold out until I could.

The Best Lash Curler For Your Eye Shape – 2018 Edition

  I’ve been blogging about (mostly) beauty stuff for nearly five years now, and I’ve learned a bunch of lessons. Most relevant right now: I’ve learned that all you lovely visitors here really like you some eyelash curler diagrams. Every single month, my ancient post on the Shu vs Shiseido curlers continues to be my most-viewed post, followed closely by the lash curler roundup I did a while later. Unfortunately, the Shu curler isn’t widely available in the US  ...
