The ‘Clean Eating’ trend is putting young people at risk of developing eating disorders. I don’t think there’s anything healthy about a controlled diet where foods are referred to as ‘unclean’ or in other ways tied to guilt and shame.

I’m a huge fan of lingerie, and am thinking of adding some posts about it on this site – I think lingerie and beauty share many traits like intimacy and tactility. I do realize that it’s a little crass to post a photo of a skinny model after discussing EDs but let’s just focus on the beautiful blue lace… This (600+ euro) set by ID Sarrieri is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life. (If you’re interested in lingerie, you have to follow The Lingerie Addict.)
Love the idea of using a lip tint as a multi-use product.
