Odds and Ends

1. I read two things that we very disturbing about social media this week. This and this. Frightening.

2. 13 rules for female friendships. If the people you admire keep disheartening you with sex scandals, try admiring some women instead.

3. The dogs of UPS. How adorable.

4. What in the hell is this sound? Seriously.

5. A scientific look as to why songs take you right back to certain people, places, and events in your mind.

6. I know many of you are on the MUN bandwagon (the Anarose toner is a twice-daily ritual for me), so I had to tell you about this deal. The MUN daily essentials set is currently $40 off and if you use my 15% off code WHOORL, you can get all three full-sized products for $136. (Down from $200.) Such a deal, you guys.

7. And while we’re on the subject of great deals, Citrine is celebrating their 5th anniversary by offering a “glam bag” of $200 worth of goodies when you purchase $150 or more starting this morning. I made an Instagram Live video detailing everything in the bag, as well as my favorite items to purchase from the shop. My Instagram account is here, but the video disappears this afternoon so if you’re wanting to watch it, be sure and do it soon. These bags will definitely sell out! (And use my code whoorl10 for an extra 10% off!)

8. We have a rule that we can’t listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving (although I looooove me some holiday tunes and have cheated twice), but apparently, it can affect your mental health. #whatthewhat

9. And speaking of mental health, therapists weigh in on what Trump has done to ours. #prettymuch

10. Cards Against Humanity. For parents. Sign me up.

11. Ivory turtleneck sweaters are my jam during winter. This one is perfection.

12. This week’s podcast is all about skincare, where I detail every step and product of my morning routine. (Evening skincare will be next week!) Also, we talk with Caleb Gardner about staying sane during political strife. Um, so very needed.

Happy weekend to you all!

    Would love to order from Citrine and get the glam bag deal but their site STILL has issues. I have more than the qualifying value in my bag after hours of fighting with the site but cannot tell if I will get the bag so scared to hit the submit button. Should I have a “glam bag” item in my bag?

      I’m also trying to figure that out and would love to hear from someone who has ordered before.

    Yes, you don’t need a promo code for a glam bag. You will get the glam bag if you spend over $150. (And if some bizarre reason you don’t, which won’t happen, I will personally make sure you both get one!)

    Love your Friday Odds and Ends. Lots of good links here. Thanks for the MUN code. I tried to use another beauty sites ongoing 15% code; it was rejected as “already used” so I dithered. Yours worked, so I got a fabulous deal on products I use and love. Yes to the Everlane turtleneck in cream. My one hesitation is sleeve length. The model is 5’11” and I’m 5’4″. I’m thinking of trying an XS or an XXS and seeing how that fits me bodywise and sleevewise. I look forward to listening to your podcast. P.S. Last week I asked you in a comment which conditioner, or mask you used with the shampoo you talked about. I didn’t get a reply. Do you have a favorite?

      I use the matching Shea Moisture conditioner.

    Thanks for the tips on deals Sarah!
    Been interested in using the Mun line. Do you still use the serum or do you like the Maya chia better now?
    Want to make a wise investment :)

      Interesting question. I’ve been looking at the Maya Chia serum as well.

        There’s so many options and new things are coming out all of the time, it makes it tough to make a choice

        • Katherine C. James

          November 10, 2017 at 8:43 pm

          Agreed. The choices are not inexpensive, and they are a commitment. I wish to choose something I can use up, and which possibly has other items in the line I can use as well. Keeping my beauty routine simultaneously efficacious and streamlined is important to me.

      Hi Taylor. I don’t think you could go wrong with either serum, as I love them both. I find the Maya Chia Super Couple’s ingredients to be more active/powerful. (There are more ingredients overall in the Maya Chia product than MUN.) When it comes down to it, it’s up to what *you* are looking for in a serum, you know? What works for me might not work for you, but I understand wanting to make a wise investment.

      Both are fantastic, and for me, set themselves apart from the enormous amount of serums that have been sent my way to review. These are the two that I choose to spend my money on. Also, the scent profiles are very different on the serums as well. Rose is the main note in the MUN. Super Couple smells more like jasmine and frankincense.

        Thank you so much for your guidance!
        I appreciate your advice since you have been able to try many different lines.
        I will look into both.
        Love your blog xx
