Of the many things I love about summer a shiny, oil streaked face is certainly not one of them. My battle with shine has led me to three products that I can actually trust to control the reflecting mirror that is my forehead in the summer. Believe me I’ve tried it all, but with combination, sensitive skin it’s rather hard to find products I can trust. That is, of course, until I tried these. 


When it comes to makeup, skepticism is usually my go to attitude. When every cosmetic label screams “NO. 1 AGE DEFYING, ANTI-WRINKLE, PORE-ERASING, SUN-PROTECTING, FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!” it’s hard to take them seriously. But, I put my skepticism aside to try a new product by one of my favorite (and most trusted) makeup companies: Benefit Cosmetics. It’s called “the POREfessional” and I am officially hooked

You know, usually I try to keep things light here but as a result of the events in Boston, I thought it was time for a more serious reflection. I was actually on the East Coast coming home after celebrating my birthday weekend when the news broke, and the fear was palpable as I went through airport security. I was only 11 when September 11th happened, so this was really the first act of terrorism against the United States that I’m able to fully process. I felt that a reflection on life was a more appropriate way of handling my sadness than punching a wall or further glamorizing whoever did this.

I hate New Years’ resolutions, but this year I think I’m going to make one for the first time since I was in grade school. Recently, I’ve been thinking about what I could do to make a meaningful difference in my life. Admittedly, I will never stop swearing, I don’t aspire to run a marathon (the 10k I did without training two years ago nearly killed me), and chocolate and I will never divorce.  So, what’s available for me to try?

Since I haven’t really had the opportunity to introduce myself, I thought I’d take this chance to do so. I’m Dan. This post will let you know a little bit about me in some of my most embarrassing incidents. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes. Hell, hopefully can learn from my mistakes.  As the only male editor here, you won’t find me writing about nail polish, shoe trends, or fashion faux pas (I’m sure I’ve committed enough to be imprisoned by now). I have to adapt. So, let’s get to my stupidity.
