If you’re one of those Sex and the City stans still holding out hope for a SATC 3 with the full cast…sorry, friend. Kim Cattrall has made it clear that she will never, ever participate in Sex and the City 3. Of course, Cattrall—who brought PR exec by day, heartbreaker by night Samantha Jones to life—has long been outspoken about not wanting to return to the beloved franchise, but a recent interview with The Daily Mail is the most definitive she’s been yet.
When asked if she would appear in another SATC film, she told the publication, “Never. It’s a no from me.”
She then added, “You learn lessons in life, and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.” The Daily Mail dubbed this “a swipe” at her former costar Sarah Jessica Parker, though Cattrall doesn’t name check Parker—or any Sex and the City costars, for that matter—in the interview.
While there have been rumors of tension between Parker and Cattrall for years, things came to the surface last winter after Cattrall’s brother passed away. Parker shared her condolences on Cattrall’s Instagram, to which Cattrall replied, “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depends on who you ask) Amazon basically carries every single product known to man and trying to find the best fashion pieces that you actually want to wear is no easy feat by any means. So we’ve gone ahead and done the dirty work by narrowing down the hundreds of Amazon Prime fashion deals to the thirteen that we’re actually pretty excited about.
For anyone with a serious beauty obsession, Amazon Prime Dayis basically a holiday—albeit one your office colleagues might not understand you phoning in for (which is why we have work from home days, right?). It’s one of the biggest sales of the year from the online retailer. Consider it the halfway-to-Black-Friday sale, and this year with Amazon Prime Day’s sales, you’re definitely not going to want to wait all the way until November to score some luxe beauty deals.
There’s plenty of luxury beauty selling on the website, so now’s the time to stock up on your staples or try a pricier moisturizer you’ve always wanted to try but might not have taken the plunge for yet. And if you need further help justifying any of your purchases, there are plenty of products where a drop or a spritz will do you just fine—meaning these products will last you months.
The only downside is that there are so many items on sale, narrowing it down to what’s actually going to wind up in your cart can be close to a full-time job. Luckily, that job is ours: read on for 11 of the best luxury beauty products from Amazon Prime Day, from the best eyeliner we’ve ever tried to Olaplex’s hair-saving treatment. You won’t even have to wait that long to try your spoils—with Amazon Prime, most products should be at your door in two days or less.
Amazon has some of the best rated sex toys on the internet which means that Amazon Prime day has some of the sexiest deals out there. As luck would have it, Swedish brand Lelo—known for making some of the most luxe and powerful sex toys on the market—is offering up to 50% off it’s best selling vibrators and toys this year. Basically the deal makes Amazon Prime Day 2019 better than Christmas and Black Friday combined.
If you don’t know where to start, we’d recommend Lelo’s Sona Cruise, currently on sale for $56. (According to one of our writers, is the best vibrator ever.) If you want something more discreet, there’s a lipstick shaped compact that brings whole new meaning to the word travel companion. And if you’re looking for something to bring home to your partner, there’s the Lelo Tiani 24k which is made with actual gold.
With so many of these sex toys coming in at way less than $100 with the Prime Day discount, we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to get a couple. Twice the pleasure for half the price? Yes, please. Shop all the best Lelo sex toys on sale this Amazon Prime Day below.
We’re more than halfway to Black Friday, which is the official start of holiday shopping season, but you’d be forgiving for forgetting that the phrase “Christmas in July” was coined before Amazon Prime Day became a thing. For beauty product obsessives, it’s one of the best days of the year: A ton of incredible skin care products are marked down with huge discounts, often more than 50 percent off the normal purchase price. It’s a perfect time to fill in the gaps of your skin care routine, totally overhaul it, or just treat yourself to a few sheet masks (truly, can you ever have too many on hand?).
There are a lot of great offers on sale, but you don’t need to take the time to go through them all—we’ve done that for you. You’ll find 10 of the best skin care products on sale for Amazon Prime Day below, whether you’re after a new sunscreen or a moisturizer that will keep your skin hydrated for the coming months. With the kind of discounts available on Amazon Prime Day, it’s time to move these picks from your wishlist to your cart—just be sure to get them before the deals sell out (we have a feeling these gems will go fast).
There’s no place like the Internet for surprisingly in-depth reviews for pretty much any kind of product, from cosmetics to sneakers. When people really love an item, you’ll catch on quick—because all of a sudden you see it everywhere. For the second winter in a row, there’s no question about what the Very Best Coat is: No jacket is quite as hyped up as that one quilted puffer from Amazon. And for Amazon Prime Day 2019 the famous coat is 40% off which makes it just $84.
It’s technically called the Women’s Thickened Down Jacket, by Chinese outerwear brand Orolay, but Internet users lovingly refer to it as “the Amazon Coat.” By all means, it’s a fairly standard winter coat—waterproof and slightly oversize, lined, with large pockets, available in multiple colorways. Perhaps its most important quality, though, is that it’s instantly shoppable (and very much available) on Amazon. You shouldn’t mistake this for yet another impulse buy, though. According to Amazon reviewers, Orolay’s Women’s Thickened Down Jacket is the best coat they’ve ever found.
Currently, this Orolay coat ranked as the number-one best-seller on Amazon’s site. It has an average rating of 4.2 stars, with 5,958 customers chiming in in the review section at press time. From 2014 until now, it’s earned comments like “I absolutely LOVE this jacket” and “I am so in love with this coat” consistently. (Can any other hyped-up fashion drop say that?)
I’ll be the first one to admit I’ve never gotten the hype over Amazon Prime Day. It’s just not my thing. I tend to buy all of my household items in person and I’m really bad with technology (I’ve broken not one but two Amazon Echos, don’t @ me). Recently though I discovered that if you dig really deep, Amazon has some surprising fashion gems. The retailer is particularly useful for when you want to upgrade your basics from easy to wear moto jackets to the perfect pair of affordable gold hoops.
This year Amazon Prime day is two days long and runs through July 16. That may eliminate the sense of urgency but the best stuff is bound to go fast especially when they’ve got classic pairs of Levi’s jeans and designer sunglasses all on sale at prices we’ve never seen before. If that sounds overwhelming, that’s because it is. Thankfully we went through all of the fashion deals Amazon has to offer this year and narrowed down to the 11 best below and yes, they’re all under $50.
Amazon Prime Day is finally here, and for the first time ever it’s two full days long. Sure we can use this as an opportunity to stock up on cleaning supplies or an extra Amazon Echo, but we’re seeing it as an opportunity to buy every single beauty product and tool we’ve been eyeing instead. And with Glamour Beauty Award–winning brand Foreo offering up to 35% off all its best-selling skin care devices, this Amazon Prime Day might just help us get our best complexion yet.
Foreo’s line of Luna facial cleansing devices may look like something from outer space (their masking tool literally has UFO in the name), but they’ll give you results like none other. Everyone from celebrity facialists to very impassioned Amazon reviewers swear that Foreo makes the single best skin care tool they’ve ever used. Considering they all work in tandem with your skin to give you a customizable treatment while also removing makeup, oil and dirt, it’s not hard to see why.
While we were able to get a good look at Middleton’s pale blue, textured Emilia Wickstead dress while she watched the match with a nicely-coordinated William, it wasn’t until she stepped onto the court to present the trophies—she’s a patron of the All-England Club—that we saw that she opted for something other than her signature wedge style for footwear.
Here’s a good look from the front:
And the side view:
The bone-colored, block heel pumps with an adjustable ankle strap were a perfect summery pick—and the best news of all is that they’re still available at the totally affordable price of $56. Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge apparently loves Aldo as much as the rest of us do. As with all things Middleton wears, these are likely to sell out fast, so grab the while you can. Case in point: Her Emilia Wickstead dress, which retailed for around $957, is totally sold out.
“[I think] Sweetbitter can’t tell the difference between making a joke about how a piece of ginger looks phallic and blatant racism and sexual harassment,” says Sophie*, 29. She’s worked as a barista, waitress, and bartender over the years and has, along with the other women interviewed here, watched the first season of the show.
In the real world, Sophie says she’s experienced harassment with disturbing frequency: She remembers seeing a chef snap the exposed thong of a server who had bent over to pick something up. In another incident, Sophie says she went to her boss, a restaurateur who encouraged staff to report harassment, in tears over the harassing texts a male coworker had sent after they got in an argument at work. The coworker was disciplined, and the texts stopped.
To Sophie, the most demoralizing aspect of restaurant work is actually mistreatment from customers—an issue which Sweetbitter addresses more directly in season two. One memory still makes her shudder: While working as a cocktail waitress, a customer commented that her “bra fit really well.” She felt she couldn’t tell him off without risking her job.
“Sweetbitter focuses on sexual tension and partying, but it doesn’t really show how draining and demeaning it can be to work in the industry,” Sophie says. “Being treated like you’re second class or like you’re an idiot [by customers] gets exhausting.”
Lilly*, 29, has worked in food service for over a decade. She says one of her biggest challenges has been watching women, herself included, get overlooked for raises and promotions while male colleagues confidently sought out and were awarded these accolades. And like Sophie, she’s dealt with abusive customers.
“I was talked down to, spit at, shamed, and made to feel ‘less than’ for no other reason than my job. Classism is alive and well,” she explains. “Tess is an earnest twenty-something who always looks adorable. That was not my reality. I felt disgusting and mortified constantly.”
Sweetbitter does get a lot right, though. “I thought the way Tess was objectified seemed pretty accurate,” Lilly says. “She’s young and therefore immediately the target of aggressive flirtations. She’s also constantly navigating unwritten rules. I do think the show captures that sense of being brand new and entering a fully-formed universe.”
The scenes in which the staff enjoy free drinks at the bar after the restaurant’s closed are also familiar to the women I talked to. Sophie recalls feeling pressured to participate in these nightly rituals to build camaraderie amongst the team. Once, she agreed to take shots with a fellow server in the bathroom during dinner service, worried she’d alienate her coworkers if she refused. When they were caught, she nearly lost her job.
