A difficult path in life is like walking in ‘cruel shoes’


Lucy Luginbill

Not too long ago I visited a friend’s new home, and I got lost … in her clothes closet.

A place equivalent to the size of an airplane hangar — and filled from top to bottom with enough shoes to make Imelda Marcos gasp, even at 92 years of age.

Hair accessories — the more, the better — have remained one of the most pervasive and persistent beauty trends over the past few years. But even if the accessories themselves are cute, what’s decidedly un-cute is if they cause damage to the hair. Snags, snarls and snaps can all result from harsh clips, headbands or hair ties that get tangled, rough up strands and create breakage.

That’s where materials like resin, silk and velvet come in: They slip over the hair gently, enhance smoothness, allow

Kendall Jenner’s Maxi Bag Obsession Is Far From Over

Ever since micro bags swept the runways several seasons ago (Jacquemus, we’re looking at you), extreme bag trends have become the new norm. Supersized shapes have been particularly popular this year, and with our ever-growing list of essentials – mask, sanitiser, etc – it kind of makes sense.

Lizzo’s Date-Night Dress Revealed A Different Side To Her Style

Lizzo creates the most playful and bright ensembles. You can always find a fabulous new quirky bag in her outfits, whether it be a crystal-encrusted chocolate bar clutch or an artsy-designed shoulder bag. She also adores an eye-catching dress, like the sheer purple number she wore to Cardi B’s birthday. However, for a recent dinner outing, the singer left behind her usual statement bags and flashy dresses for a more flirty and delicate look.

Jewelry Shop to Open on Trumansburg Main St. | Regional News

Jewelry artist Siedra Loeffler was born during a meteor shower, so her parents named her after the Urdu and Latin “Sidra,” meaning “Like a star.” 

It makes sense that she should have become fascinated by the sparkle of jewels and drawn to jewelry making.
