Odds and Ends 6.19.20

1. It is hot AF outside and I’ve become the Queen of lightweight, cropped workout tops. This one is my fave and this one is a great affordable option.

2. TACO BELL HOROSCOPES. Mine (Scorpio) is so spot on.

3. Masks are now mandatory in California. (Whereas here in Oklahoma, a burgeoning hotspot, we are hosting an indoor Trump rally for thousands. Should be just fine, guys! #SERENITYNOW)

4. Bye bye, Anthropologie.

5. 5 takeaways from John Bolton’s memoir.

6. In June, I’m donating 5% of my personal earnings from the Whoorl Skincare and Makeup Kits to the Loveland Foundation and Fitglow has offered to match me dollar-for-dollar! If you are thinking about purchasing one or both of the kits, this month is a great time to do it!

7. Now, this is some good news! #SCOTUSFTW

8. For those who only speak Christianese, an interesting piece.

9. I finally found the perfect high-waist, cheeky-but-not-too-cheeky bikini bottoms. (Okay, I mean, they are pretty cheeky, but SO flattering.)

10. I made this meal shared by a super-stoned, super-cool woman and it was effing delicious.

11. Buy this. I mean, just do it. Wear it after the shower, wear it by the pool, wear it around the house, wear it sipping rosé on your patio…I’ve had it for years and still get compliments on it regularly.

Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend – we are celebrating Dustin’s birthday and Father’s Day! #doublewhammy

Odds and Ends

1. This Google Doc of anti-racism resources is super thorough and helpful.

2. I’m a sucker for a racerback dress and this one is super comfy and only $30. (psst – this is the best bra for racerback styles.)

3. My dear friend Kristen’s book launched this week! It is hilarious and poignant and embodies everything that makes Kristen such a stellar individual. Highly recommend.

4. 75 things white people can do for racial justice.

5. Sephora became the first beauty mega retailer to take the 15 Percent Pledge. This is huge! I’m more than happy to spend my dollars there – here’s a roundup of my faves.

6. Also loving the Pull Up For Change initiative and pleased to see so many clean beauty brands showing up.

7. One of those brands being Fitglow and I’m working with them to make a donation from the proceeds of my two kits in June! Specifics are being hammered out, but know that a percentage of your purchase will be going to a Black-focused organization. Details soon- an even better reason to buy one of my collections.

8. Way to go, NASCAR. Didn’t expect to see this.

9. I clearly don’t need any new clothes since I rarely leave my house, but I really want this and this and this.

10. Have you signed up for the Good Newsletter? It’s much needed right now.

11. I’ve learned a lot over the past few weeks, but nothing has rocked me to the core more than these 6 minutes. I urge you to watch.

Wishing you a good weekend.

I am beyond thrilled that Sephora is the first beauty company to sign the 15 Percent Pledge! Black people make up 15% of the US population, and signing the pledge promises at least 15% of shelf space devoted to Black-owned brands and businesses.

Sephora carries some of my most-loved clean beauty brands like Kosas, Ilia, Briogeo, and Bite Beauty. And they are always adding more.

As for the 15 Percent Pledge, we will see what companies follow suit, but in the meantime, I’m happy to support Sephora for stepping up. Here are some of my all-time favorite clean beauty products you can find there at Sephora.
