The core of the bare soul: Nastya Karzan by Aaron Feaver

It takes one single photograph, one utterly beautiful woman, one generous hint of nudity lost in the purest sense of grace and the scenarios unfolding in one’s mind could easily be spreading over hundreds and hundreds of words still unwritten.

Bite Beauty: Where Two Worlds Collide

August 19, 2013 6:15pm As far as I’m concerned, women fall into two distinct camps: those that prefer gloss, and those that opt for lipstick. I myself am a lipstick girl—the slippery texture and hair-to-mouth situation every time the wind blew never appealed to me. I’ve tried liquid lipsticks that claim to provide the...
