You Don’t Have To Be A Cyclist To Love Biking

  A few days ago I was browsing the internet while I could have been doing something much more productive (as usual) and I came across an article titled ‘Why cyclists make great employees.’ So of course I clicked over to it – who wouldn’t want to see how they can spin a hobby in their favor? But I realized as soon as I read it that the points they made – cyclists being meticulous, competitive, etc – were 100% not relevant to me. And that, friends, is  ...

Happy Birthday Popsugar Must Have! (Spoiler Alert)

  Are you a subscription box fan? Historically I haven’t been – Birchbox and Sample Society were both a bust for me – but I’m making an exception for the Popsugar Must Have Box*. Unlike most of the options out there, it’s not limited to beauty products – it has all sorts of lifestyle goodies including home decor and snacks.

Fondant of You is a really pretty pastel orange that reminds me of orange sherbet. It’s a great summer color but since  ...

Dermaflash: Smooth Skin You’ll Love, No Spa Required

  The internet just looooooves ‘weird beauty hacks’ and one that’s been getting a lot of air time lately is women shaving their faces. Why we’re still thinking of it as a strange trick is beyond me since it’s been coming up off and on in beauty articles since at least the 90’s, but I digress. Being the beauty addict that I am, I’ve tried more than once to jump on that bandwagon and I’ve regretted it. Every. Single. Time. It seems no  ...
