  • Is Tilapia Healthy for You?
    by Katie Wells on July 11, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    Fish is considered a healthy source of protein because it’s lean, easy to digest, and filled with healthy omega-3 fatty acids and other important minerals. However, the dark side of the story is that about 50% of the fish we eat are factory farmed, and tilapia takes a fair share of that percentage. According to Seafood Health … Continue reading Is Tilapia Healthy for You?...

Unfortunately, this effect most often requires the help of damaging heating tools like blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. If you’re no stranger to these tools, you probably use some … Continue reading Natural Heat Protectant Spray for Hair...

  • Sephora Auburn & Taffy Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches
    by Christine on July 14, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Sephora Auburn Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, deeper copper-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff in a single stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without tugging. The texture felt like a melting gel-cream as it skated easily across my lips but didn't feel traditionally wet--more velvety, like a silicone-based primer. The color took a solid 15 minutes to really get to mostly matte in finish, though it was fairly set after five minutes (where it wouldn't lift but still had a bit of sheen). Continue Reading…

    by Christine on July 14, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Sydney Grace Colorful (Light) Mystery Bag (2020) ($25.00 for 0.89 oz.) contains five eyeshadows (one matte, four shimmers), one pressed blush, one loose highlighter, and one loose glitter. All of the products were pigmented, blendable, long-wearing, and easy to use. Pink Fury looked less vivid after the initial application but held that more faded hue for the remainder of its wear. This is the Light version of the bag, and I don't have the Deep version, so I am not sure what is different between the two bags exactly at this time. I did purchase it yesterday, so we shall Continue Reading…

  • BREAKING NEWS: California Closes Salons, Barbershops in 30 Counties
    by adodds on July 13, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Amy DoddsEarlier today, California governor Gavin Newsom ordered the mandatory closure of hair salons, barbershops, nail salons and personal care businesses, among other indoor businesses, in 30 counties in an effort to control the spike and continuing spread of COVID-19 cases. The counties represent about 80% of the state's population. Newsom says the state is moving back into a modified version of its stay-at-home order, comparing the order to a dimmer switch—not fully on with an open economy, but not fully off with a lockdown. Those businesses in 30 counties, including Los Angeles county, affected by the closure include:  Hair salons and barbershops Nail salons Personal care services Fitness centers Worship services Offices for non-critical sectors Indoor malls Additionally, all indoor operations will be closed statewide for restaurants, wineries, movie theaters and family entertainment, zoos, museums, cardrooms and bars. News

  • Checking In: Camping at Clear Lake, a New Book, and a Shrimp Pesto Salad Recipe
    by Karen on July 14, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    It’s been about a week since we got home from camping at Clear Lake, and I think I’ve *finally* recovered. HA HA HA HA! I know. You would think that sitting outside, like, making s’mores, playing Go Fish, parking your butt in a chair and reading for two hours straight (DREAMY) would be totally relaxing, but…no, not really. I learned a lot from this trip, including that camping can be kind of exhausting, especially if you have to plan the trip and parent a young person at the same time. I mommed SO HARD, you don’t even know! Camping as a parent is waaaaay harder Honestly, I did not realize how tiring parenting while camping was until now. Most of my previous experiences with camping were trips where I just showed up with a sleeping bag and a box of Frosted Flakes, because every summer in high school, my best friend Jen’s extended family would pack up all the gear and the kids and the food and drive out to a lake somewhere in the middle of nowhere, where we’d spend a few days camping. I didn’t appreciate all of the work involved in the planning and the food prep and the packing.

  • Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 634
    by Karen on July 13, 2020 at 2:23 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. 🌻 The Perfume Edition! 1. Scent (or scents) you’ve been wearing the longest? MAC Turquatic (13 years!), Clinique Happy (almost 20), Chanel Mademoiselle (10), Byredo Gypsy Water (6 years) 2. A perfume or scent you associate with fond memories? All the scents from The Body Shop remind me of my early 20s, the phase in my life when I had just graduated from college and moved back to the Bay Area. It full of lots of highs and lows — big adjustments and lot of bumps in the road, but at the same time, I had so much fun. I wore pretty much anything you could find at The Body Shop, but my favorites were Moonflower, Dewberry, Ananya and Indian Gardenia. I wish I kept those old bottles, just so I could smell them again!

  • Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 615
    by Karen on July 12, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Total pool weather today. It was 91! This was the type of day Tabs would have spent by a body of water of some kind, and of course he would have been fashionable. I’m sure there also would have been toys… Tabs loved lounging by the pool. It was his favorite way to recharge after a rough week of jet setting and kitty modeling, and he also thought it brought out the orange tones in his fur. He didn’t just rely on the sun for that though. He was also a huge proponent of bronzer. 😊 Rosie likes to lounge in the sun too, but not as much as Tabs did. Tabs would sleep in a sunny spot on the carpet and follow it as the sun moved across the sky. He would get up, scoot over, and plop back down over and over until the set went down, and he did that almost every day. He also got kind of fussy when it was overcast. He was definitely a solar powered tabby. Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict, Karen Continue reading "Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 615" on Makeup and Beauty Blog.
