odds and ends

1. Not to brag or anything but I got a 20/20 on this quiz. I am a genius or a total nerd.

2. Now, this is my kind of quarantine cooking show. When the host starts with “I’m tired,” I’m 100% in.

3. Caftans are my jam and appear to be on the up and up during the quarantine.

4. Did you see my skincare and makeup kits at Fitglow Beauty?! I have my own kits at Fitglow Beauty!! #pinchme

5. Science, you all. It’s a thing.

6. The day the live concert returns. I love Dave Grohl and this piece he wrote.

7. 3 reasons Evangelical Christians fall for conspiracy theories. Very interesting. (And written by an Evangelical.)

8. Closing the streets in Berkeley for outdoor public dining? I like it!

9. You’ve probably heard, but HAMILTON. JULY 3RD. #thatrhymed

10. Oh man, I’m falling really hard for this luxury clean makeup line.

11. British writer pens quite an accurate description of Trump. I mean, it’s not that far off, y’all.

12. Block people and pretend they died. Okay, this made me lol.

13. Just a friendly reminder that false reporting comes from both sides. Respect the facts.

14. The fastest way to look refreshed and lovely. Just fake it ’til you make it.

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a great weekend.

Fitglow Beauty x Whoorl Collaboration

Oh my goodness, I am so excited to finally announce what I’ve been up to over the past few months with Fitglow Beauty. Whoorl-Approved Skincare and Makeup Kits! If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know that I am one of Fitglow’s biggest fans and supporters – they are total pioneers in the clean beauty space and consistently introduce great products to the market.

Over the past few years, a handful (maybe even two handfuls, if we want to get technical) of products have landed in the coveted Best of Best spot at Whoorl and remained there ever since. Well, we thought it was time to share my very favorites with you all in two limited edition kits that showcase my tried-and-true, shout-from-the-rooftop products at an incredible discount!

Odds and Ends

1. People sharing their 1 minute of fame stories. Awesome. (Mine? Being a Pantene Girl. If you’re curious what it’s like to film a national television commercial, I dished every detail here.)

2. Been thinking a lot about the class of 2020. Wonderful photo essay. Also, Obama delivering the national commencement gives me all the warm fuzzies.

3. Integrity Botanicals is hosting the most lovely Mother’s Day giveaway this weekend. Everyone who makes a purchase will be entered to win a May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon, The Youth Dew, and The Jasmine Garden, all wrapped in a signature box. (A $400 value!) Just enter “May’s giveaway” in the comments section upon checkout.

Also, Integrity Botanicals is including a free Henné Luxury Hand Cream with every purchase over $75. You can choose between Citrus or Blomma – enter CITRUS or BLOMMA in the discount field. (Yes, you can do both!)

4. Teaching life skills during the pandemic. I’m a fan of this idea.

5. I’m all about comfort right now, but sometimes I don’t want to wear leggings. This super-soft dress is the answer, especially as it warms up.

6. This is the problem with thinking you know more than the experts.

7. My diet has been trash as of late so I just enrolled in this service and it’s being delivered today! I will definitely report back.

8. Oh, THIS is my kind of show. Can’t wait.

9. Did you know May is Mental Health Month? Here are some inspiring quotes.

10. Dolphins swimming through bioluminescence. So beautiful.

11. The best highlighting/glow technique for the 40+ crew.

12. Have you found yourself more frugal since the pandemic? I’ve definitely become more cognizant of wasting food.

13. Nearly half of men say they do most of the homeschooling. 3 percent of women agree.

14. When the small things are everything. Lovely.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and caregivers out there! Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
