a face wash duo // i’ve been mixing cleansers this month by using the trader joe’s nourish cleanser (i’ve linked this to the amazon listing, but it was $4 in store, not $14) as a first cleanse (more soapy, but not stripping) and following up with the first aid beauty cleanser (more moisturizing). they work together to perfectly wash my face and control my acne while also offering moisture and hydration. and i just feel really clean in the best way.
mad hippie vitamin c serum // this is my second bottle of this magic potion and i really do love it. because my acne is curing due to a variety of products i can’t necessarily say this is making that much of a difference, but i do think it makes my skin brighter, more even, and very hydrated.griffin remedy stimulating shampoo // i am in love with this shampoo. truly, in love. i’ve previously written about the pura d’or shampoo and conditioner, but i think this takes the cake in helping my hair feel healthy and strong. if you aren’t used to sulfate-free products this might not be for you, but i love that it brings out my natural texture without feeling soft or flat. and i really do think it’s stimulating! i usually skip conditioner for added grit (i’m sure this is bad but whatever).
nars pro prime smudge proof eye shadow base // now this is a funny favorite because i don’t actually have it in my possession currently. after finishing up my tube i decided to try out the wet-n-wild eye shadow primer that is supposedly a dupe for the nars. and it is terrible! it completely dries out my eyelids and is too smudge-proof in that it feels like the shadow is glued to my eyelids. i cannot wait to repurchase the nars and this has shown me that i’ll suck up the price because i don’t want anything else.h&m jean jackets // i’ve lived in my madewell jean jacket for about 5 years now and just needed a change. i first found this amazing washed pink jean jacket at h&m and after falling in love with the fit i searched around for a regular denim one as well. they were pretty pricey at $49 but i’ve been living in them. i don’t typically shop at h&m but i know i’ll have these jackets for years to come.eve babitz // the true los angeles queen. i absolutely adore her style of writing and the stories she tells. i cannot get enough! there is a reason why we think of l.a. the way we do, and eve is why. i’m currently finishing eve’s hollywood, absolutely adored slow days, fast company, and can’t wait to start her novels.
murder maps // a netflix show highlighting london’s nasty murderers in the 18 and 1900s. sooo creepy and so good. love the mix of history and horror.
won’t you be my neighbor // hands down the most beautiful movie i’ve ever seen. needless to say i was moved to tears. i can’t say much more than that because i really am speechless.. . .
