Mr Gotham's Review: Lootcrate Agosto 2016

Viendo los locos tiempos en los que nos ha tocado vivir, podríamos aceptar como válido que la Edad de los Héroes haya quedado desfasada. En un mundo repleto de áreas grises, el clásico acercamiento a la lucha entre buenos y malos puede ser en ocasiones complicada de discernir. Es el momento del adorable granuja, el cazarrecompensas de buen corazón y el alocado mercenario que siempre hace lo correcto...en nombre de todas las causas incorrectas. Porque, ¿a quién no le gusta un buen antihéroe?Viviendo en todo momento entre la línea que separa el bien del mal, esto irresistibles personajes han estado siempre entre los favoritos de legiones de aficionados a la cultura popular, y con el papel estelar que sujetos como los integrantes del Escuadrón Suicida han ganado últimamente, parece ser el momento perfecto para unirse al equipo de los "no tan buenos, pero tampoco malos del todo".
Preparaos para enviar a vuestra moral de vacaciones...¡es la hora de los Anti-héroes!

Mr Gotham's Review: Lootcrate August 2016

Taking into account the crazy times we are living in, the age of heroes may have been completely outdated. In a world filled with gray areas, the ethic approach regarding classic conflicts between good guys and bad villains may be sometimes something difficult to discern. It's the moment for lovable scoundrels, good-hearted bounty hunters and the wacky mercenaries who always do the right thing...in the name of all the wrong causes. Because, who doesn't love a good (pun intended), well-defined anti-hero? Always living between the thin line that draws the difference between right and wrong, these extremely appealing characters have always been the favorites of many pop culture enthusiasts, and with the star roles that guys like the Suicide Squad have been getting lately, it seems that the timing couldn't be better to join the not-so-good-not-so-bad-either team.
Prepare to give your morals some vacations...it's time for the Anti-Heroes!

Review: Touch in Sol, a must-have K-Beauty brand for New Yorkers

Living in a city like New York with extreme temperatures can render useless the time you invested applying make-up by just waiting for the Q line. Finding light yet durable formulas is one of my personal quests. And I believe it is my civic duty to share my latest discovery for the benefit of my fellow beauty-obsessed Gothamists: Touch in Sol.

Bloggers around the world are raving about this Korean beauty brand, and with all the reason: It is awesome. Instead of concentrating on creating cute packaging (which on the other hand I love), Touch in Sol puts its efforts in creating amazing formulas that deliver top-notch results with colors and textures that match the latest trends. And it's a budget-friendly brand too!

Touch in Sol has found a permanent place in my summer make-up bag and with all the good reason. Want to learn all about my favorite products? Click on to read more!

The Compassionate Chick's Guide to DIY Beauty

I have to confess I'm into DIY big time. Although I don't have much free time to photograph and share all my projects, I love painting furniture, mixed-media art, making jewelry and doing my own cosmetic concoctions.

The Compassionate Chick's Guide to DIY Beauty is a wonderful guide to creating all-natural, vegan and cruelty-free beauty products that you can whip up in your kitchen with simple ingredients for pennies per treatment.
