EauMG’s August 2017 Favorites

Dohany Street Synagogue

August was a busy month. I went to Budapest. We had a great time. However, it was 100º-107° so that wasn’t that great. (Also, a reminder that I’m never traveling in August ever again). While I was there, I saw some lovely architecture, toured synagogues, ate a lot of cold fruit soups, drank the best wines and bought a ton of German pharmacy products. (Shout out to DM for taking all my money). I also got a haircut at a place called “Horror Barbie“… Continue reading | 10 Comments

EauMG’s July 2017 Favorites

Flavin Dia

Where did July go? I felt it went by really quickly.

Overall, it was a really chill month. It’s summer so a lot of people are vacationing. Throughout the month I was able to entertain folks from out of town. It was nice to catch up with old friends; we’re all spread out all over the place.

June was a great month. I started a class at Columbia. I’ve been taking myself to museums and galleries. It was Pride. Life has been rather stress-free and my skin is looking great. I can’t complain about anything.

Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Unlike my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face, you won’t… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Favorite Sunscreens for the Face – 2017 Edition

Alla Nazimova

I wear sunscreen every day. I reapply it if I’m out in the sun. I’ll go out without makeup or without a bra before I go out without sunscreen.

I’ve been wearing sunscreen every day since I was 13 years old. This was a rarity for someone in my age range that grew up in the Deep Tanning Bed South. A lot of this had to do with gothness but also realizing that people that embraced their skintone always looked younger (and were happier) than those that didn’t… Continue reading | 18 Comments
