Odds and Ends 7.3.20

1. A Guide to Shaming Idiot People Who Don’t Take Covid-19 Seriously. Very much enjoyed reading that.

2. ALL THE FEELS. Especially in terms of working mothers.

3. Watched the Jeffrey Epstein documentary last week and wondered why in the hell Ghislaine Maxwell wasn’t behind bars. She was finally arrested yesterday.

4. I just had an epiphany about aging faces and blush placement! (Video coming soon.) Current favorite cream blush is this one in Petal.

5. My friend Skye Latimer took over my Instagram account on Wednesday as a part of the #sharethemicnow movement. It was such an incredible day – here’s one of the videos she created on anti-racism resources.

6. Did you see that Oklahomans approved Medicaid expansion this week? (In a “deeply red state,” mind you…) Also, Mauree Turner (a Black, Muslim woman) won the democratic nomination for my district. Times are a-changin’ and I’m here for it!

7. I found out this week that there are only 8 Whoorl Makeup Kits left at Fitglow! I’m sad to see them almost gone, but elated at the response.

8. On my body all the damn time. In every color.

9. Do Americans understand how badly they’re doing? It’s so sad that this pandemic has become politicized. #wearyourmask

10. I’ve known Julia for over a decade and am SO happy to see this come to fruition.

11. A look into one of OKC’s COVID hospital units.

12. A Go-Gos documentary!! Also, are you ready for today?

13. New caftan alert. You can never have too many, folks.

Happy Friday! I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend and please wear your masks if you’re out and about.

Constellation Ear Piercings: Everything You Need to Know

Constellation Ear Piercings

In 2018, I added a constellation ear piercing to my right ear while taking my daughter to get her ears pierced. We were spending our annual week in Laguna Beach (heading that way? Check out my guide to Laguna Beach here!) and I wanted to do things right so I took her to see celebrity piercer Brian Keith Thompson at Body Electric Tattoo in LA.

I had been all over Instagram coveting multiple piercings (check out #triplelobe for your viewing pleasure) but knew that it could be a more challenging piercing since placement and spacing are crucial according to ear shape, so I wanted to go to the best of the best. Here’s what I’ve learned from the process.



Odds and Ends

1. Bizarre physical symptoms over the past few months? Blame COVID-19.

2. Best new summer products from Trader Joe’s. I need that vanilla non-dairy frozen thing.

3. Almost Famous is having a 20th-anniversary reunion! #howhasitbeen20yearsomg

4. People. What is up with the large family gatherings? STAHP IT.

5. Right now is the best time to get your skincare in check. Not much longer to get three of my most-used skincare products at an incredible price!

6. New iOS 14 features families will enjoy, coming this Fall.


8. Oooh, Osmia Sunset Body Oil lovers…yes it’s been out of stock for a year, but now you can receive a free travel-sized Sunset Body Oil (1 oz/$25 value) with any SITEWIDE purchase of $60 or more through this weekend at Integrity Botanicals while supplies last. Just use the code OSMIA.

9. Same shirt for 40 years. This is amazing.

10. I…errrr….what? (Don’t even ask how I came across this.)

11. The Dixie Chicks changed their name.

12. Amazon’s Big Style Sale is happening! Love this swim cover-up and this robe.

Happy Friday! Wishing you a relaxing weekend.
