Odds and Ends

Listen, I don’t want this to be a sale-heavy Odds and Ends, but a few are too good to not mention. (Why always over the same weekend though?)

25% off Ilia with code THEBIGONE. This will always be a top 3 eyeshadow palette for me. My other faves are here.

20% off Tatcha with code FRIEND23. This is the best oil cleanser on the planet and this cream is summertime perfection for mature skin.

20% off Kosas with code SUMMER. My top 5(ish) are here.

Names for your middle-aged dad band.

Haha, I do not like not knowing the parking situation.

Did you see my hair after using the new Airstrait? I still can’t get over the shine.

Juneteenth, explained.

Sigur Ros’ new album releases today. All the feels with this song.

The most satisfying stop-motion tutorial.

Why so many people care about Formula 1. (Honestly, my interest has waned this season.)

Last but certainly not least, my new Substack! The response has been incredible and I just LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. My first newsletter detailing my full exercise routine/diet can be read here.

Happy Friday! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Best of the Best: Kosas Cosmetics

Best of the Best is a series showcasing my favorite, tried-and-true, go-back-again-and-again green beauty brands.

Since the inception of the brand in 2015, I have been borderline obsessed with Kosas Cosmetics. First came the lipsticks – fast forward 8 years and it’s a full-fledged line of cosmetics boasting fantastic skincare ingredients. As Kosas says, it’s a line for “skincare freaks.”

Here are my favorites!

You’re not a real parent unless you reach these milestones.

Weird lipstick is everywhere.

This dress is easily the most lovely dress I’ve put on my body in quite some time. It looks like it should cost thousands of dollars. If your size is available, don’t hesitate. (I wear a 2.)

Hahaaa, Carrie Bradshaw reflects on the smoke from the Canadian wildfires.

Do I need to make this cake?

The Kosas lip product reformulations are insanely good. (psst – don’t buy them just yet *wink*)

I’m on Substack! I’m on Substack! I’m absolutely giddy over this and have so much up my sleeve. You can learn more about what I’m doing here.
