I’ve typed and retyped a million clever intros for this week’s Happening Now.
None of them clicked enough to hit the publish button though.
Sometimes I have to remind myself to KISS- keep it simple sweetheart.
So without further ado, I will let these news pieces speak for themselves.
Nars, the cult classic brand, is FINALLY bringing their dreamiest shade to a nourishing lip balm. Orgasm is the perfect orangey pink with the loveliest amount of shimmer. I currently own the blush, lipgloss, nail polish and the multiple in the Orgasm shade and I’m counting down the days till I can add this to my makeup bag!
Y’all I can’t even with how excited I am about the fact a Star Wars theme park is in my future!!! I’m a total SW junkie and being able to live the movies in real life will be a childhood dream come true. Anyone else with me?
On a more serious note, the city of Cape Town, South Africa is facing a serious water crisis. The city is facing Day Zero when the water will be shut off. At the moment, residents are allowed 13 gallons of water a day for cooking, drinking, cleaning and self care. To put it in perspective, the average American uses 88 gallons a day! This article from Glamour talks with the women of Cape Town and how the water crisis has changed their beauty rituals and daily lives. Information is power- perhaps this story will give you the knowledge to be more aware of water use to prevents such crises from happening in our cities.
