Son and Heir? In Britain, Daughters Cry No Fair (NYT) : Though the law of primogeniture seems antiquated, it still exists inEngland’s rigid society.

Seven Summer Reds (LE) : Lisa Eldridge will always top my list of the most beautiful women in the world. Lucky for the rest of us, she shares her makeup tips weekly on her blog. This week’s offering was a guide to summer red lipsticks. I dare you to read it without opening your wallet.

Magazines:

Mindful
