Patti LaBelle’s skincare routine is a classic and also super celebrity. Vaseline as a makeup remover is a thing we all did if you’re from a certain generation. It removes eye makeup which… now I’m wondering if I should go back to that because while the wipes definitely work, I often wonder whether or not it’s too harsh. As for La Mer, well, obviously Patti can afford it. I’ve never seen a La Mer container in the wild, like in real life, not on a shelf, let alone try it. If you’ve ever tried it, let me know, does it really work? Because I have to say I’m using a Korean product right now that is really, really great. (Cele|bitchy)  


I must have missed this and it sounds like I didn’t actually miss a thing because there was a rumour that Brad Pitt and Andra Day might be happening, which she has shut down by saying they’ve actually never met. Which tracks. You know why? Because the original report came from a British tabloid. (Dlisted)  

Is Charlize Theron wearing a skort? It looks like it. And it’s a good classic outfit – crisp white shirt, black skort, black booties, this works in any era. As for the skort, I’m obsessed with them right now because it’s golf season and my clothing purchases lately have all been sporty skorts for golf, that are not official golf attire. Nothing I wear to play golf is for golf, because women’s golf clothing is… well… I don’t think they know what they’re doing. I would totally wear Charlize’s skort to play golf if the fabric is breathable. (Go Fug Yourself)  

Can a week go by without some kind of Bachelor controversy? This time it’s not to do with the show’s racism but with the contestants’ taking government pandemic relief funding. (Pajiba)  

When I was, like, 12 or so, all I read were Jackie Collins books. Lucky Santangelo was my literary hero. So I am saving this piece on Jackie Collins for bedtime tonight and I’m going to slowly savour every word and then I’ll probably spend the whole weekend re-reading her work. (The Atlantic)
