Market basket of roses

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary is the first Saint I remember learning about as a kid. She appeared in a picture book I owned, and I can still remember the illustration: a beautiful princess with loaves of bread under one arm and red and white roses under the other. I expect she was, and still is, […]

Clean beauty finds for the holidays

Most years, my holiday makeup mantra is “just add a red lip.” This year, however, mask-wearing means my lipsticks have been rolling around in my makeup drawer for months.
