Iceland has been on my travel radar for a long time now, but for some reason I found myself pushing it to the back burner again and again. In my mind, Iceland was a destination that’s more for the type of person who enjoys hiking 20 miles in the rain and then sleeping in a […]
In case you don’t know, I recently challenged myself to a no buy month. I wrote about it for Apartment Therapy, so you can check out the article there when it’s live and read about all the insights I gained from the experience if you want, but TLDR: The four weeks of only buying essentials […]
When I think of 2019, I think of this leopard print skirt from Eloquii (out of stock but similar linked here). OK, and the Target jumpsuit (IYKYK). When I think of 2020, I think of my beloved Athleta workout leggings, and the Poplinen button-down that I wore all summer (well, I also think about a […]
Despite the fact that I’m always quite sure what I like when it comes to fashion, I’m never totally sure what other people will like. So when I shared some new, colorful beaded necklaces on Instagram and almost immediately had dozens of people asking me to link them, I was pleasantly surprised. Mostly, I’m just […]
There are two types of people in this world: Those who can pack for a two-week trip in one carry-on suitcase, and those who truly believe it’s impossible for them and check their luggage every single time. I am firmly in the former group, and I am passionate about it. Sure, I can also admit […]
For the four years I was a fashion and beauty editor, I don’t think I bought toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, lotion, or makeup even once. When I left my full-time editing job, I worried that my access to all these free products would go away. I thought I would get FOMO seeing other editors get […]
There is nothing I love more than a great jumpsuit. It’s a one-stop recipe for feeling great about yourself. And, honestly, wearing a jumpsuit is a power move. Don’t feel like matching a top and pants, but still want to feel like a badass? Perfect. Don’t feel like having the ability to easily and quickly […]
This post kicks off my Just One More Thing series, where I’ll be talking about one more thing I think everyone needs in their lives — all things I love completely and totally. No exceptions.
Until very recently, I believed flossing was stupid. Sure, my dentist told me I needed to for most of my life and I had like 19,000 rouge floss picks in my medicine cabinet that I wasn’t using. But still. For about 15 years, I just would rather my gums bleed profusely every time I went into for teeth cleaning rather than make myself floss daily. And then… I discovered Coco Floss. And my god, now I am a flossing apologist. I would stand on a street corner and talk about how Coco Floss saved me if I could. OK, it didn’t save me. But it did save my gums. And I love it.
Truthfully, I can almost gauge how I’m doing mentally and emotionally by how much time I spend on my nightly routine. If I’m cutting out steps and ignoring the skin care rituals I’ve come to love, something is almost always off with me. Usually this means I’m feeling anxious, down, or distracted. Forcing myself to get back into the routine ultimately helps me focus on myself, feel good, and take time to pamper myself a little. We all need that.
