My RMS Beauty Favorites

RMS Beauty has been a favorite of mine for years and it’s high time I post my favorite products for you! Two of their newer products that I’m super impressed with are the “Re” Evolve Radiance Locking Primer and the Straight Up Volumizing Peptide Mascara. (This mascara is hanging right there with my beloved Ilia Limitless Lash in the top spot.)

While the Living Luminizer has cult status, my favorite highlighter by the brand is the Champagne Rosé shade.

You can watch my step-by-step application of these products in this video and shop my favorites in the list below!


Odds and Ends

I thank my lucky stars almost every day that this jaw massager came into my life.

Mercury is in retrograde for the last time this year but what does that really meeeaaaan?

One hopes nobody is taking medical advice from a Real Housewife of OC. Yikes.

Nothing beats a trench coat for the fall – it’s soooo chic and a personal staple in my closet. This trench is lovely and the price is even better!

ABC’s new “Wonder Years” reboot centers a black family in history. Are you watching?

Obsessed with this collared cashmere sweater. #swoon

I love a good berry/plum lipstick for fall and this Bitten Lip Tint in Bisou is such a lovely, subtle everyday shade. (It looks much darker in the tube than it goes on.)

Ancient footprints suggest humans lived earlier in the Americas than we thought.

Dollar Tree is branching out. #punny

Whole Foods and other major retailers are now accepting cryptocurrency. Do you use Bitcoin?

I was looking for something in my blog archives and found my daughter’s daily outfit posts when she was itty bitty and about died from the cute overload. Where does the time go?

New haircare alert! I’ve been using the Ceremonia line the past few weeks and I LOVE IT. (Smells so yummy and I love the price too!)

I’m telling you right now, this will be me in 40 years. lolololol

Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Odds and Ends

The changing of seasons usually triggers my anxiety for whatever reason. Here are 8 things I’ve learned about anxiety over the past several decades.

Did you see the Arc de Triomphe wrapped in fabric? It took 60 years to plan and it was definitely worth it. #swoon

Walking is one of the best things for our health and happiness. Would you do this 100-mile walk?

Love this sweater for fall. Love the texture, love the sleeves, love the price.

The Gabby Petito situation is downright heartbreaking. I just learned that 710 Indigenous people (mostly girls) were reported missing (and many found murdered) over the past decade in the same area. It leads you to wonder why we never heard about those victims and if racism is to blame.

Related – Sabrina Nessa murdered while walking in London and many are asking why there isn’t public outrage when the victim isn’t white?

Male enrollment in colleges has fallen behind women by record levels.


These silicone lipstick holders are perfect for makeup storage. Look at how organized mine are now!

Speaking of lipstick, my favorite lipstick brand is currently at an incredible discount. Wearing all the shades here.

This right here is brilliant marketing.

How lovely is this tote bag? I want to carry it everywhere.

Last but certainly not least, have you seen the Beautycounter mascara that looks like a silver sex toy? I thought it was just my dirty mind, but thousands of you agreed with me on Instagram. (FWIW, the mascara makes my lashes insanely long and thick *no pun intended*, but it did flake a little bit by the end of the day. #worthitthough)

Happy Friday! Wishing you a wonderful weekend – we had a slight peek of Fall this week, but are back into the 90s again. COME ON, COOLER WEATHER.
