Sephora Sale: Add To Cart
It used to be that beauty products didn’t typically go on sale unless they were leftovers from Holiday. But now, a global pandemic and unstable economy have brought a slight silver lining for beauty shoppers: discounts. If you have a favorite brand, sign up for their emails and you’ll see what I mean. The exception: Sephora’s Insider sales have been on devotee’s April and November … Continue reading Sephora Sale: Add To Cart

If I’m being honest, I was a little underwhelmed by the Golden Globes red carpet looks this year but at least there were some pretty entertaining speeches. #jennifercoolidge #kehuyquan However, true to form, Rihanna — there for her“Lift Me Up” Original Song nom — did not disappoint.

Active Lifestyle: Fall Finds
It’s finally feeling Fall-ish in LA. Pumpkin lattes are brewing and Holiday Gift Guides are blowing up inboxes. I’ll hold off on gift suggestions for another few weeks but I will share some go-tos I’ve been enjoying during this transitional season.
I’ve always used Secret deodorant. No complaints. But the reported dangers of aluminum have motivated me to switch things up. TBH, unpleasant results of friends trying natural brands have kept me at bay for years.
After listening to an Art of Being Well podcast, I was compelled to try NATIVE deodorant. Coconut & Vanilla to be specific. Results: great! I’ve tried it at the beach, in a heat wave, hiking in Hawaii … and no stink! I even bought my sister a sample size in a scent I thought she’d like. If you’re looking to try a more natural, aluminum-free deodorant, I highly recommend NATIVE. NOTE: This isn’t an anti-perspirant so it doesn’t stop you from sweating if that’s a concern.
Another natural deodorant reco: HiBar. Success with Native got me confident enough to test-drive another natural brand: HiBar Fresh Rain + Cucumber! Results: So far, so good.
I’ve been using the CōTZ primer for years. Love! And now I’ve found another convenient CōTZ formula for face AND body. The Mineral Sun Stick is mess-free and fits in my fanny pack so on-the-trail touchups are simple. The finish is sheer with a touch of luminosity. It doesn’t sweat off and my skin looks healthy without being sparkly. Highly recommend!Continue reading “Active Lifestyle: Fall Finds”
