On Controversial Opinions Post: The Moisturizer I Don't Like

I hate when makeup articles tell me that that Maybelline Great Lash is the best mascara, because it is NOT. It's terrible. It's definitely one of those products that I think keeps getting touted because of the ouroboros of people buying a product just because it's recommended and then parroting back that advice to others.
(this concludes my diatribe)
This was really interesting, because I have the Lait-Crème Concentrate saved in my Sephora "loves" right now, having been told it was The Best but I haven't tried it yet.

On Face Masks with Absolutely No Placenta Listed in the Ingredients

"Good for: people who are little babies about normal problems and like to put a skincare-treatment buffer between a bad day and a good day." THAT'S ME!
I became a Sephora VIB this year, because I was on maternity leave and shopping online was my only joy (other than my kid, I GUESS) I love these reviews, you guys.

On Kim Kardashian: Trapped in Her Own Game

I read the entire thing yesterday during breastfeeding sessions, and it is completely amazing. Kind of makes me want to pick up the game again (I got bored with it for all the reasons mentioned in the story) I love that it's not mean but it's still really funny.

On Famous People It Took Me Way Too Long To Realize Are Not the Same Person

I have trouble when I see Michael Strahan's name, I always think of David Strathairn and then wonder why he's interviewing celebrities?

On Fathers Head To The Kitchen

I can't believe it! I thought only women were capable of using a stove, kind of like how only virgins can touch unicorns. Imagine my surprise when discovering that men can, and do, prepare food for themselves and their families! What an interesting new trend!

Why do I keep clicking on these lifestyle articles from NYT. Why.

On Bloodfeast: Scary White People Tacos

Hah - I've always called these "Mom-style tacos". My mom whips up that Ortega taco dinner kit, with MILD salsa. It's the most exotic recipe in her repertoire, other than "chicken cacciatore", which for her consists of boneless chicken breasts over spaghetti with a jar of Prego dumped on top.
