Odds and Ends


1. Perfect timing – this brand new set has travel sizes of my favorite products mentioned on Monday. It’s part of the holiday collection and comes with a chic white travel case. A great deal!

2. This necklace will never let you down.

3. Do you believe the whole mercury-in-retrograde thing? Just as I was about to publish this post, I lost the whole damn thing and had to start over. So, yeah, I’m a believer. Come on, October 9th!!

4. Let’s move to Sweden. Right now.

5. Oh, this video is SO GOOD. I’ve watched it 10 times. Selfie time!

6. Not to be a debbie downer, but look at this chart of mass shootings in 2015. Something has to change, friends.

7. Hey guys, it’s okay to not like things, but….

8. One-star reviews of national parks on Yelp. Absolutely hilarious.

9. How people treat mental illness vs. physical illness. Sad, but true!

10. If this isn’t the most perfectly lovely little necklace, I don’t know what is. Love the photo of it paired with others.

My Top 10 Beautycounter Products


I’ve been using Beautycounter products as part of my skincare and cosmetics regimen for over a year now, and it’s safe to say I’ve tried almost every line from the product. However, there are a handful of products that have become total staples for me – meaning I have emptied many a bottle and repurchased over and over. And over again. I adore these products and will SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.

Let’s get started.




Odds and Ends


1. Quiz time! What your Starbucks order says about your age.

2. Um, I’m not fond of spiders either, but this is a little much.

3. OMG, this is so hilarious and perfect and so wrong.

4. Have you seen this 6-year-old talking to her mom about divorce? Ohhhhhhh, it’s amazing.

5. The doggy rescue train! Makes me smile.

6. Another quiz. What’s your tendency? Mine was the questioner or something, which sounds 100% NOT like me.

7. I’m so happy Jon Hamm won. And that’s he’s newly single. Call me, Jon. I think we could be a good team.

8. Annnd back to reality, perimenopause. It’s a real thing, yo. MY hormones are absolutely WHACK.

9. Did you see the news about the new season of Serial? I’m so ready.

10. I am so happy larger retailers are starting to carry more and more green beauty brands. I love this one (best bronzer and lip gloss ever!) and this one (you must try the resurfacing mask) and this one.

Happy weekend to you all! I’ve got my last yoga teacher training this weekend before our exam in October. #fistbump
