On Beauty Q&A: Do You Smell What I Smell?

Eyeliner questioner: I just found out the best eyeliner look for every day and I'm OBSESSED with it: line the inner rims of your UPPER lash line. It sounds totally undetectable but it adds amazing depth and ~prettiness~ to your eyes. TRUST MEEEEEE

note: this works best on people who aren't used to wearing a lot of makeup on an everyday basis and who always rub off their eyeliner during the day if it's all liquid and winged out (me)

On Kerry, What's in Your Closet?


I disagree with Jane on the Hunter boots. They're cute and classic and make you look rich sorta but they're also big, clunky, heavy, and a little TOO warm. I live in Vancouver, Canada and own Hunters but rarely wear them because they're so daunting. I really really recommend Loeffler Randall rain booties: http://loefflerrandall.com/LRProduct.aspx?ProductID=236&CategoryID=10
They come in neutral colours, with or without laces (which I wouldn't imagine are functional, just provide a different "look") and totally go with what you're going for. I have a friend who dresses in the style you describe and these fit right into her wardrobe. Good luck!

On Canadian Heritage Moments

Wait, so, "Burnt toast" isn't a thing anywhere else but Canada? My whole life is a lie! I honestly thought that was a real thing (like, not even just a weird Canadian Heritage Moment thing)

On Lies, Kissing Biblically, and Translucent Officewear

@Diana I knowwwww I thought the response to LW2 was way too flippant as well! I'm just imagining telling something like that to an older male coworker (I can think of a few, though luckily for me none of them have a nipple problem) and I'm just mortified by proxy. Yeeeeesh. I have no advice to give in that regard.

On Beauty Q&A: Bullet Bras, Rancid Perfume, and Mascary

I see a lot of blondes and red-heads with super light lashes and their mascara doesn't go all the way down to the base of them. So maybe that's what the asker was talking about. Either way I think it looks weird! And Jane: lots of the "blondes" looking good in mascara you pointed out aren't natural blondes. And I love Gwyneth but her eyelashes look really weird there.

On We're All Murderers Inside Our Own Heads, or The Time My Boss Wanted to Kill Me

What what what what! You ARE nice. TOO nice. How long after did you work there? That's terrible that they didn't fire him.
