Nailpad | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[productsample] This is a handy (cough) little accessory for anyone who is clumsy with their nail polish. I’m usually pretty good but a pair of pyjamas with a dot of orange polish on them for ever emphasises the ‘usually’ :-). Nailpad So, Nailpad is a portable pod that folds out to reveal a bottle holding slot on one side and a sort of fin on the other side that you can slide between your knees to ‘grip’ it so that…

Clean Up Your Act – Beauty Article

I decided it was only fair to give baths a real shot, and let me be the first to admit I did not know what I was missing. Baths are the best.   Confession time: up until about a year ago, I hated baths. While I’d been lucky enough to live in a variety of apartments that all had tubs (a luxury, I’m told), I almost never took advantage of the bathroom feature. Instead of using my bathtubs as they…

Your Blackhead Survival Guide – Beauty Article

While I may always have a smattering of blackheads on my face, it’s far better to learn how to care for and deal with them in a smart way. While I’m the first to admit that there are few things in life more satisfying/gross than successfully squeezing something out of your skin, I’m also the first to admit that self-extractions aren’t a good idea. Especially when it comes to blackheads. After “learning my lesson” more than a few times, I’ve…

Paul & Joe Make Up Collection 2019 – Beauty Article

[productsample] Yes, yes it is…. an Advent Calendar. But Paul & Joe call it a Make Up Collection so I have too.

Plus, I’m bursting to share it because it’s so lovely. Paul & Joe Make Up Collection…

When Stephanie Capuano’s two sons hit puberty and began experiencing the skin issues that are so common among teens, she wasn’t thrilled with any of the conventional offerings on the shelf. As a mother, she was concerned not only that what her boys were slathering on their faces would work to calm and heal their skin, but also that…

If you find yourself in Montauk this September, The Surf Lodge’s The Sanctuary is holding space for your — and  your gym bag’s — wellbeing… Montauk, in spite of its growing incantation as a thriving summer mecca, remains peaceful at heart — accepting and resilient, and quick to revert into a sleepy sort of existence once the annual migration of city folk subsides. “The End,” nicknamed that because Montauk sits at the literal end of Long Island, beckons people to…
