Kate’s got that magic. 🧙‍♀️ Oh, this one’s easy. I rave about it all the time. Definitely Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion! It totally changed my skin…and my life. I’m prone to breakouts, and when I don’t use this potent, preternatural pimple cream, the zits return, and they return in full force. Anti-Bac contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, which really isn’t that cutting edge in terms of acne fighting ingredient, but the devil’s in the details I guess, because there’s something wonderful about this particular formulation that my skin loves. The effect is almost immediate. It goes to work clearing up any existing pimples I have and prevents new breakouts entirely. Seriously, like within a few days! Nothing else I’ve found works quite like it, and I’ve tried everything. I have to remember to use enough of it though. I massage two pumps all over my face (everywhere except my eyes,…

A pale yellow sheath of eggs, whipped with vegetable stock and heated in a cold pan in the style of a Japanese omelet, covers a block of fried rice like a weightless blanket. A roasted tomato sauce plays a role that ketchup typically fills, saucing slick kernels that make up most of the volume of the brick-sized package. A thick pool of dark brown veal demi-glace adds a third layer of richness for a spoon to carve before it hits the plate. This is the omurice at Cafe Spoken, and it explains the strategy behind serving hotel food in the COVID-19 era for one of D.C.’s most-trusted restaurant minds. Before the coronavirus pandemic, the Line hotel in Adams Morgan had three separate restaurants and a coffee bar. Now there’s only one, Cafe Spoken, a new all-day spot from Erik Bruner-Yang that follows the template of the kissaten shops that serve…

Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood is suing a host of cannabis companies that he says have falsely used his name to endorse their goods. The 90-year-old accuses the firms of spreading fake articles and tagging their websites with his name to make it look like he had backed their products. Nearly 20 firms are named in the suits, accused of trademark infringement and defamation among other violations. One firm, Sera Labs, said it had stopped the fake ads “immediately”. All of the companies sell goods with CBD, an extract from the marijuana plant that does not have psychoactive properties. It is used in products such as creams, oils and food. However lawyers for Mr Eastwood – who has starred in films such as Dirty Harry, as well as directing features including Mystic River – said he “does not have and never has had” any association with CBD. ‘No association with CBD’…

You’ve tried the new built-in orthotic sandals such as Vionic and Abeo, but the support isn’t customized enough for your feet and your doctor insists that you wear your custom orthotics. You’ve experienced enough frustration trying to fit them in your shoes, let alone sandals, and summer is coming. No, you don’t have to wear your tennis shoes all summer long, open-air options do exist! However, just because a sandal description states that it is “orthotic-friendly,” doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be friendly to each and every orthotic it meets. You may find that you have to trim your orthotics to get a good fit. See this video for tips on how to do so. Orthotic Sandals – Our Top 8 Picks Naot Papaki – orthotic-friendly sandal The Naot Papaki features a removable cork-latex footbed and an enclosed heel which helps to conceal and secure anorthotic insert. The Papaki comes from…

It would appear that 2020 is the year that the more famous GY welted shoemakers drop/update their Driving Loafer line, after previously never having one or giving it a massive revamp, most likely due to the fact that driving loafers by nature are not Goodyear welted, hence it never being focused on. Carmina just recently dropped theirs and I covered it on Tuesday and now, here is the covering of the new line by famous British shoemaker Crockett & Jones. C&J has had a line for many years (10 to be exact) but has recently given it a massive refresh and it is good to see both shoemakers expanding their collections and construction offerings. You know that times will really be different when they both drop a sneaker range. And remember, that I said it first. But I digress. Crockett & Jones’ New Driving Loafer range is split into 2…

In day where casual is overtaking dress style Carmina has gone on board with that idea and launched their own driving loafer range. It surprises me that it actually took them this long to do so. Being a complete shoemaker, I would have thought they would have started one ages ago. But its never too late so it is nice to see them starting now rather than never. And man, are they nice! The collection is impressive to be quite frank. A strong collection full of colors and leather types, you even see one made for the cult Cordovan customers in Black and Color 8 Horween Shell. Imagine that. Driving loafers in shell cordovan. Thats a loafer that will go the distance! And it better for the price on it!! The soles are precisely what I like in a driving loafer. The studs are luxurious for the uber rich who…

I could spend all day combing through the Neutrogena makeup section at the drugstore. ALL. DAY! Here are a few makeup items of note, which I’ve been using and liking, most of which are pretty new to the line… Precision Liquid Eyeliner I cut a [email protected] batch of onions with this on, and it didn’t budge, so LOVE. The felt tip is long and flexible, so if you like a little “give,” it’s perfect for carving sharp-edged lines and flicking effortless wings. It’s also intensely pigmented and a true black. Just all around lovely to line lids! I wish it came in more colors. Available in one shade, Jet Black, which comes in a 0.013-oz. pen for $9.99. Smokey Kohl Eyeliner Like the black liquid liner, these creamy twist-up pencils are no joke when it comes to staying power. I’ve cried with Smokey Grey on my lash and water lines,…
