Some interesting charts regarding COVID.

35 women tell their stories about being assaulted by Bill Cosby. (I cannot believe he is being released. Makes me sick.)

I’m the condiment queen and approve of many of these.

Up to 30% off at True Botanicals this weekend only! Here’s my list of favorites.

Deb Haaland is a badass.

Exa Beauty just launched their Light Show Color Melt Pigments and they are so fun. I really love the Dear Diary shade for adding a bit of sparkle to any existing eye shadow. Wearing it here.

Just received this top in the blue/white pinstripe and it’s even prettier than I expected! A summer staple.

This tweet made me LOL. I think I shall do that as well.

Flash dance mobs always make me smile.

Loving the best beauty Instagrams of the week feature via Vogue.

Sometimes I prefer a canvas hat over straw and this one is perfection. (My two other favorite hats are here.)

This exfoliating lip balm is hands-down my favorite product of the year so far. I do my thing with it in this video.

Speaking of lips, have you seen the Precision Colour Pencils by 19/99?! They are DIVINE. My summer lip shade is Rosza and I’ve actually been rocking the Wasser shade as an eyeliner. Love how they also created a gloss to add shine to the lips. Use code SARAHJ15 for 15% off!

We live in a 100-year-old house where the downstairs has to be freezing in order to keep from melting upstairs during the summer. Needless to say, this cardigan gets major play. 100% cotton FTW.

Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend…I’ll be actively trying not to melt. #soveryhot
