THE PRESETS





Lash-tastic

Complimentary false lash applications at Shu Uemura SF

Like most women, I’ve come to think of false lashes as a special occasion beauty indulgence. I’ll squeeze in an application at a cosmetic counter a few times a year for, say, the ballet opening or the opera gala to achieve that camera-ready, extra diva-ish look. But after noticing how truly fabulous a girlfriend of mine always appears ever since she got semi-permanent lash extensions—whether she’s dressed in sweats or a cocktail dress—I just knew I had to change my inconsistent lash lengthening ways.

Let's Be Frank

Do any of you ever suffer from meal regret? It happens to me all the time (a hazard of the job, I guess)—most frequently when I have a disappointing, though calorie-rich, meal then wish that I’d saved I hadn’t wasted 1/3 of a my daily allotment of food on something that wasn’t even that tasty. But occasionally, the meal regret occurs when I’ve already eaten a full meal of deliciousness, then see something else delicious that I wish I could try but am too full to consider.

Hangover Remedies

There is an excellent article on hangovers by Joan Acocella in the May 26 issue of The New Yorker. We all have our methods of getting over one. Greasy burgers or eggs. Milkshakes. Recently, pickle juice was recommended to me. Unfortunately, it didn't help me last weekend, when I was suffering.

Sammy Hagar Does the Cabo Wabo


Lick a little lime, throwin' down: Sammy Hagar tastes tequila.

“The stupidest idea in the world can be the most successful one,” Mill Valley resident Sammy Hagar—that guy formerly known as the lead singer of Van-Halen—explained to me the other day, in reference to the origin of the term “cabo wabo.”
