Harry and Meghan Resign From Royal Duties – What Does That Mean?

We don’t follow this drama as closely as other people, but my guess is that Harry and Meghan are going to be just fine. Now expecting their 2nd child, the couple are announcing that they are leaving behind their days of royalty. So what exactly does that mean? Haven’t they already left? The previous announcement was merely stepping back from duties to care for their first son.

It seems that this announcement, however, means that any official work going forward is done. In a statement made by by the Palace’s official website, Queen Elizabeth II shared that their titles and appointments will be redistributed to other members of the family. While the formality of all this seems to be tying up, at the end of the day, they are still family.

Sharing more of their story, the Harry and Meghan will sit down with Oprah on March 7th for a primetime interview which will likely detail the drama of the last year.

Instant Noodle Aisle = Instant Serotonin

In a pandemic, you need to be able to find joy in the little things. When the highlight of your week is a trip to the grocery store, you zero in on what will become your favorite purchases. The instant ramen aisle is endless. There’s no shortage in new things to try and its array of colors and packaging make this aisle a lively one.

Also, I’m not sure where this trend came from of influencers taking photos in grocery aisles (we’ve done this too!) but it’s interesting to see what trends come out of pandemic times. Who would’ve thought that poorly lit aisles and mediocre items would be a hit? Not us, but here we are. I’m always on the hunt for some of the best instant noodles though my mother would not consider this a healthy diet. Share with us your favorite recommendations? So far my favorite has been anything involving Jajangmyeon!

Hero Cosmetics Expands To Your Skincare Routine

If I had to pick one brand that saved me during quarantine, it would be Hero Cosmetics. Since the beginning of mask wearing their patches have always come through for me. I hope you’ll believe me when I tell you that the maskne was rampant. It’s also the brand that I’ve been sharing with my own friends. Now that they’ve clearly succeeded in this area, they are introducing a line of new products that they hope will be incorporated into your skincare routine.

Their [Clear Collective Collection] is a three-step system that they believe will prevent future blemishes. For the set of three products, the bundle will cost $35 or you can buy each one individually at $12.99. I’ve watched many videos of people’s skincare routines that feels like a 10-step process and honestly, who has time for that in a day? Hero Cosmetics is making a promise that you really only need three essentials: their [Exfoliating Jelly Cleanser], [Balancing Capsule Toner], and [Clarifying Prebiotic Moisturizer].

“We want to make products for the entire life cycle of the pimple. Clear Collective is basically our foray into the ‘prevent’ category,” founder Ju Rhyu says, noting that the patches fall into the brand’s “treat” category, while the Rescue Balm and Lighting Wand fall into the “repair and restore” bucket.
