The number one compliment I get from people (you, strangers and friends on TikTok and Instagram, strangers at the grocery store, my students…) is that I have really pretty hair. People have been DMing me and stopping me to ask what I use for so long that I decided to finally put together a post of all my products (all cruelty-free btw) and hot tools that I use. I hope this post bestows upon you the same smooth, shiny hair that I strive for!
I have some ambitious plans for 2022! Explore my 2022 Vision Board and see how I plan to reach the goals I’m setting for myself this year.
I haven’t written in almost an entire year. Here’s a brief explanation of what’s kept me away, my plans moving forward, our annual holiday card, and a very exciting announcement.
The holidays are such an important time for small businesses. The money they make between Halloween and New Year can make or break their entire fiscal year. With so many small businesses closing this year due to covid, let’s try to help give some owners (and boss babes, because I’m very proud to tell you that most of this list is female-owned and operated) some support to see them through these tough times. Below is a list of 50 amazing small businesses to support in your holiday shopping. Please help this list grow by adding your favorite small businesses in the comments.
I’ve tried a number of things to sleep better: melatonin, ZzzQuil, more exercise… the list goes on. Finally, after years of trial and error and nights of restless sleep, I found a few things that work for me. If you’re a “bad sleeper” like I am, hopefully some of these methods can offer you a better night’s rest too.
I used to do a monthly roundup of my current most used and loved products, but for some reason, I stopped. I’m not sure why this monthly roundup ended, but I’m very excited to bring it back. Scroll through to see and shop some of my current favorites.
I’ll admit, I don’t shop at Sephora a ton. Still, I can’t resist a good sale. I know the “real” beauty bloggers shared their Sephora Spring Sale favorites over a week ago, I’m sharing mine today. It’s short (in comparison). It’s inexpensive and quality stuff, and it features products I use and recommend, and some I’m really excited to try.
Like many, I’ve been working from home the last few weeks. Also like many, it’s taking some adjusting. It’s hard on my mind and body, especially because we don’t have space for a home office. If you too are having a hard time adjusting logistically, mentally, or physically, this post might be helpful. All links are shoppable, so please don’t go out to pick these things up! Just shop from the comfort and safety of home.
First of all, get your mind out of the gutter because what I’m talking about some good old-fashioned, wholesome fun you and your roommate/spouse/partner/person-who-is-stuck-inside-with-you can do to put down the phone, step away from the news, and enjoy some quality time together inside as we continue to try to flatten the curve.
So… you’re stuck inside. Now what? Well, I’ve got your solution… maybe. To be honest, this list probably has a lot of films and shows you’ve already seen, but I’m throwing it out there anyways. It’s mostly light-hearted shows and movies because I feel like that’s what I need right now, and maybe you do too.
