The spooky-scary Esther Perel & Orna Guralnik of newsletters—the people have spoken!—is getting big stuff off our chest, voice-acting Vanessa Carlton’s forthcoming memoir, and swimming quite fast.
Re: the tweens ands Drunk Elephant. My 22 year old daughter works at Sephora and was surprised at the tweens coming in asking for DE specifically, and using retinols in general. So much harshness on skin that doesn't need it! I also work retail and was witness to a child who couldn't have been more than 10 asking for Dior Lip Oil ($40 lip gloss!).
And I feel you on the Britney. Her eyes always look so sad to me, even on the People mag cover (that awkward pose is the best they could get? Also, the photo shoot was done for People but the interview took place via email, which means anyone could have answered the questions). Interestingly. the inset photo, where she is topless, she looks much happier than in the fully covered pic.
