    by Leo Newhouse, LICSW on March 1, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    Crying is a natural response to a range of emotions, but is it good for your health? Crying is an important safety valve: it acts as a safety valve for our emotions, and emotional tears flush stress hormones and other toxins out of our systems.

    by Claire McCarthy, MD on February 26, 2021 at 11:30 am

  • Seeking solace, finding resilience in a pandemic
    by Adam P. Stern, MD on February 25, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    Over the past year, so many of us have experienced various forms of trauma, and reported mental health symptoms have increased dramatically. But at the same time, people have shown resilience and found small moments of solace, relief, and even joy in life’s simple pleasures — and these moments help.

  • Lowering cholesterol protects your heart and brain, regardless of your age
    by Hanna Gaggin, MD, MPH on February 24, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    Studies have consistently shown that lowering LDL cholesterol reduces the risk of cardiovascular events and death. But do older adults — even those with existing cardiovascular disease — get the same benefits from lowering cholesterol, and do they face any additional risks from taking cholesterol-lowering medication? An analysis of data from previous studies reached some favorable conclusions.

  • Perfect Cranberry Orange Muffins
    by Katie Wells on February 23, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    I found a bag of cranberries in the bottom of my crisper drawer the other day. I had to think really hard about when I might have bought them. When they were on sale around Christmas, maybe? Either way, they needed to be used so I modified my lemon blueberry muffin recipe to make cranberry orange muffins. … Continue reading Perfect Cranberry Orange Muffins...

  • What do you like about shimmery blushes? What don't you like?

    My comfort zone! I love a highlighting blush--two steps in one, easier to blend, and often quite pigmented (without being too intense to work with!).

  • MAC Teddy 2.0, Sheer Outrage, Brickthrough Powder Kiss Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
    by Christine on March 1, 2021 at 5:00 pm

    MAC Teddy 2.0 Powder Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a darker, peachyb eige with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that adhered well to my lips and glided across them smoothing as the texture was lightweight, thin, and velvety. The lipstick sat decently on my lips but was a little more prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture, so you'll definitely want to ensure you've properly exfoliated and I'd skip this shade if you have naturally drier lips (with cracking, flaking, or peeling). It wore decently for three hours and felt non-drying. MAC Sheer Continue Reading…

  • Tower 28 Rush Hour BeachPlease Cream Blush Review & Swatches
    by Christine on March 1, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    Tower 28 Rush Hour BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush ($20.00 for 0.158 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The finish looked dewy after the formula had dried down (though it remained flexible and wasn't 100% budge-proof or anything, but it didn't feel creamy or tacky to the touch after about 20 seconds). The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy with enough slip to make it blendable and spreadable over bare skin as well as over foundation, but it didn't sheer out so much that it lost its coverage. It built up readily, too, Continue Reading…

  • Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 667
    by Karen on March 1, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    So…what is the Monday Poll? Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 🌻 1. Can you dance? I want to say “YES!” because, you know…I just want to. 🙂 I used to take dance classes back in the day, and when I was in my 20s and early 30s, you would have found me dancing until the wee hours every weekend. Now, though? GIRL! My dance skills are questionable. I mean, I can still stay on the beat, but it’s not like I’m doing anything cool while I’m moving. My arms swing, my feet shuffle, but that’s about it. Soooo, I guess my answer is “yes, kinda. But mostly no.” Hahaha! 2. Tote bag or backpack? Backpack, because my hands need to be free! 3. Would you rather go running or swimming?Continue reading "Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 667" on Makeup and Beauty Blog.

  • Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 648
    by Karen on March 1, 2021 at 2:10 am

    Rosie is a multifaceted cat. Yes, she has a knack for numbers and science and logic, but she also loves getting lost in a good story. I found out that she really enjoys being read to, especially storybooks. We’ve gone through half of Connor’s library, and Rosie just can’t seem to get enough. Her favorites, surprisingly, are the picture books with a soft, dreamy feel to them. I think she likes exploring other worlds through fiction and stories. She’s also a dreamer, which I didn’t expect based on our initial conversations about dark matter and astrophysics. I used to wonder if she ever led with her heart, and I think she just might. I catch her sometimes thoughtfully staring out into the distance watching butterflies and looking as though she’s crafting an elaborate storybook world in her head. Well, duty calls. Rosie just asked if I’d read her another book (Hans Christian Andersen’s Complete Fairy Tales). A cat lady’s work is never done. 🙂 Of course storytelling always came naturally to Tabs. He was a true showman (cat?), after all. Continue reading "Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 648" on Makeup and Beauty Blog.

    Good morning, my friend! Rise and shine, morning glory! I see signs of spring around these parts! I know we’re still a ways away, but just think — pretty soon the trees will be filled with lush, green leaves and pink and white flowers. This year the Lady Sanctuary is gonna be LIT! LOL. 😃 This weekend we’re celebrating Coywolf’s 5th birthday. It’s actually March 2, but we’re doing a few things this weekend to celebrate. The festivities kick off today with a small outdoor get-together with a couple of the children from the neighborhood with cupcakes and pizza. The two children are brothers (4 and 6) that Connor plays with all the time, and I’m hoping that even though it’ll just be a few socially distant kids and a low-key party, Connor will really enjoy it. Truth be told, way back before 2019, I originally envisioned Connor’s fifth birthday would be a Disney princess blowout at Disneyland, but ya know, pandemic times. We gotta adapt. After the party today, the fun continues tomorrow when we spend the day with her uncle outdoors at the San Francisco Zoo! 🦁🐘🐧 Anywho, that’s what’s going on here.
