3. Tata Harper sale! 15% off sitewide and free 2-day shipping on orders over $100. Now through Sunday the 18th! Can’t live without the Regenerating Cleanser daily and the Resurfacing Mask. Also LOVE her aromatherapy.

4. Some hilarious country tourism slogans here. Colombia is MAGICAL REALISM. Okay.

5. Want to help out with the horrifying situation in Aleppo? Here’s the information you need.

6. OR you could spend your money sponsoring a Millenial.

7. I love Bruno Mars. TLF.

8. This is the greatest thing I saw all week. I’m all over these cell phone alerts.

Holiday Gifts for the Beauty Lover


Um, Christmas is in less than two weeks. (WHUT.) If you’re like me and scrambling for last-minute gifts for friends or loved ones. (or, hey, just need to treat yourself for effectively dealing with all of the holiday stress…), might I suggest these lovely items from Petit Vour?

Yep! Not only does Petit Vour have a fabulous monthly green beauty box, but a fantastic green beauty shop.

Here are some of my favorites – all under 35 bucks! (Okay, except for the last candle, but it’s worth every penny, friends.) Enjoy!

1. Lily Lolo Eye Palette – This is my most-used eye palette. Love the shades and the wearability.

2. Apoterra Tulsi Try-Me Set – Love love love the scent of these products!

3. Jardin de Paris Memoir Notebook – So lovely. Needs to be on a bedside table or in a purse.

4. Habit Nail Polish – Great nail polishes – I’m partial to Camp, Deep Sea, Santa Sangre, and Hussy.

5. French Girl Organics Sea Soak – Oh, this scent is divine. Rose and Ylang Ylang…perfect for a long evening soak.

6. Little River Sock Mill Color Block Knee High Socks – How cute are these? Love the colors!

7. Gressa Lip Boost – These lip boosts hydrate and stay on the lips for a long, long time. I love Radiant and Bare.

8. Moon Juice Brain Dust – Time to get on the Moon Juice train. I personally have the Brain Dust and Beauty Dust, and love to put them in smoothies.

9. Fitglow Beauty Pressed Blush, – Joy is my favorite shade for that flushed wintry cheek look.

10. Lite + Cycle Vetiver Candle – If you love Vetiver, run don’t walk! Smells amazing.


Odds and Ends

2. Did you guys see the whole coyote prank thing this week? Pretty damn funny.

3. 13 things mentally strong people do not do. I need to work on #13. A lot.

4. OMG! This song perfectly sums up 2006. Laughed so hard.

5. “Life is not a series of problems to be solved, it’s a journey that you should be fascinated by.” Letting go is hard, y’all.

6. Credo Beauty is one of my favorite green beauty retailers and they are having their friends and family event right now. 20% off all orders over $75 with code CredoLovesFriends. I love their perfume and candle selection, and they pretty much carry every skincare brand that I use.

8. This right here is my 5-minute makeup look for the winter months.

9. Well, now that you are mandated to bury aborted fetuses in Texas, here are some ideas for funerals. (I can’t BELIEVE this is now a law.)

10. Looking for a gift box or stocking stuffer this holiday? Check out this one and this one. Sustainable, eco-friendly, and handmade! I’d do a cartwheel if I received one of these.

11. Haha, the 2016 Hater’s Guide to the Williams-Sonoma catalog is just on time. The Poop Bucket Peppermint Bark had me smirking.

12. Love this post on how to get more involved in your community.

13. “The purpose of education is to become yourself so you can make meaningful and innovative contributions to society.” Great read.
