Getting Beach Ready!

By now, you’ve no doubt seen several variations of the “beach body” meme: “How do you get a beach body? Have a body Take it to the beach Congratulations, you have a beach body! I love this meme for many reasons; dismantling the oppressive patriarchy that has, for generations, told women they had to look […]

New Makeup for May

New makeup for every type of makeup wearer! The lines between “want” and “need” have always been blurry for me when it comes to makeup; one person’s necessity is another person’s wishlist, and who am I to judge?! Be it for health reasons, for self-expression, or because the world is bleak and we need joy […]

Video: The Other Skincare Company

One doesn’t usually expect a skincare line made for sensitive and acne-prone skin to also be luxurious and rich, but such is the beautiful paradox of The Other Skincare Company. The brand was created with the goal to establish and maintain a healthy skin barrier, which is one of those concepts that a lot of […]

d’still Live!

(Read all the way to the end for details on how to win your own 3-piece d’still travel set!) Three time zones. Two cameras. One fantastic conversation!

I thought I never needed to “meet” another new skincare brand– what could one offer me that I don’t already have and love from Maya Chia, Josh Rosebrook, One Love Organics, Leahlani, Tata Harper, etc.? It turns out that my capacity for loving new skincare brands is like my feelings about my kids. When I had […]

What is the Supply Chain?

I don’t know about you, but, until recently, I had never given much thought to “the supply chain.” Which is strange, considering that I’ve put considerable research time into finding out where the ingredients for my beauty products are grown, how they’re processed, who formulates them, and other details like that that many consumers don’t […]

A [Skincare] Trip to England!

‘Ello, Gov’na! Okay, yeah, typing in a British accent is, at minimum, strange, at maximum, possibly offensive? (Sorry). So I will stick to typing as I usually do, but feel free to read this in your head with a nice, posh British accent. Greetings from Jolly Old England! Okay, fine, I’m not actually there– I’m […]

Soothing and Comforting Fall Favorites

What is more delicious than slipping into a cozy sweatshirt and slathering yourself with a moisturizing balm? Add a cup of coffee and either a romance novel (don’t knock it– they’ve come a long way) or a Parks and Rec marathon (I subscribe to Peacock just for the ability to do this), and you have […]

I’ve forgotten how to travel. I mean, obviously I know how to book plane reservations and how to fill my car up with gas. I know to lock my door, get a friend to water my plants, and leave lights on a timer. But I’ve forgotten all the small details. How to pack clothes. How […]
