Odds and Ends

1. My fellow African Botanics junkies, 20% off starts today through Monday with the code WHOORL2021. Full updated brand review here!

2. What does clean beauty mean? This article hit it home for me.

3. This is EVERYTHING. The shaking coffee mug at the end is * chef’s kiss*.

4. Have you seen this movie? Might be just what we need.

5. This is the yummiest dish. It was a hit with all family members.

6. Ten diverse voices in the wine industry.

7. I’m fully obsessed with stylish Italian women on Instagram.

8. I updated my hair product faves and overall routine this week. (psst – included is a killer discount on my favorite T3 styling tools!)

9. President Biden revokes the controversial classical architecture order from the previous administration. BRAVO.

10. The recent polar vortex was bone-chilling, but this is next-level.

11. Wait, what? This is just sick and wrong.

12. I would very much like to visit this capital of culture someday.

Happy Friday! Wishing you a relaxing weekend.

    Yes to that article about clean beauty! So many of my thoughts summarized perfectly. If there’s one thing I learned from 2020, it’s to trust science. I not joining the hating bandwagon but the white women/ privileged/ overpriced land of clean beauty no longer sits as well with me. I’ve been venturing into the land of “labby” beauty lately and found a sunscreen I actually liked by Peter Thomas Roth. It’s the mineral tinted 45 SPF and it makes my skin happy and glowy.

    Hi, I recently turned 40 and I’m in search of an excellent moisturizer. I’m currently trying to decide between the Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream and the Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream from Beauty Counter. Is there one you would recommend more and if so why?

    Thank you!

    Hi Gabriela, I would definitely go with the Supreme Cream because it has actives in it that help refine the skin, whereas the Sleeping Cream is just moisture. http://bit.ly/bcsupremecream
