The more I see lipstick around—on album covers, in fashion shoots, and out on the street—the more I seem to like it. I believe that’s called a mere-exposure bias (“a psychological phenomenon whereby a person develops a preference for a stimulus based solely on his or her repeated exposure to [and subsequent familiarity with] it.” –Robert T.

I’m super excited to share this recipe with you guys—I devised this because sometimes you just want something light for your skin.

It adds a bit of real life airbrushing without adding anything else. Brilliant.
I’m not a big fan of having my shower crowded with two dozen bottles. I’ve had friends with roommates that had so many shower products there was barely room to stand in the shower!

At the end of July I was at our family cottage in Manitoba. Before heading out to the cabin, which is rather well removed from anything other than other cottages, I stocked up on vegetables—bell peppers, a sweet potato, some chard, broccoli, and an oversized red onion. Grandma Irene also brought me a zucchini from the farmer’s market the happened to be size of my lower leg.
Come Thursday the majority of the peppers, sweet potato, and onion were still hanging around, and no one had dared to touch the limb-sized zucchini. I thought I’d make a grilled vegetable pasta sauce, and after a considerable amount of slicing, I had a pile of vegetables large enough to draw comments about feeding an army from everyone else in the cottage.
