The Best Natural Deodorant

Megababe Rosy Pits Deodorant

I am fairly certain that over the course of my past three pregnancies and nursing cycles, I tried every single aluminum free natural deodorant on the market. Some of them just don’t keep you dry or fresh, and almost all of them turned my armpits bright red. My skin is sensitive, and most scents irritate it. The best natural deodorant is the Megababe Rosy Pits Daily Deodorant. Some of us crunchies will be hyped to hear it’s made  with sage…

5 Things I Do Not Miss During Quarantine

5 Things I Do Not Miss During Quarantine

I’m officially at a point where I am stuck somewhere between hell and the life I once knew: a purgatory of sorts. It feels as if some days we are bombarded with messaging telling us to stay positive all the while reading news that says people are dying all around us and we won’t be going back to anywhere anytime soon, let alone back to the way things were ever again. This messaging cycle has been sending me down a…

10 Cute Sweatsuits To Elevate Your Quarantine Wardrobe

Part of my new normal includes wearing my fair share of sweatsuits. At this point, I’ll take comfort in any form I can get it, but I still like to look somewhat put together and polished. Lucky for all of us, joggers are in right now, and Saks Friends and Family sale is a gold mine of chic sweats. Soul Cycle’s Big Sale is also worth a look if you’re seeking Lululemon or Aviator Nation, but be advised a lot…

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

I’m sure you’ve seen recipes boasting the best chocolate chip cookies ever, but I know for a fact that only one exists and it’s this one right here. They’re a snow day staple at our house, and since we are on an extended worse-than-a-snow-day-hiatus from life, what better time like the present to bake a batch? These disappear whenever my husband is around, until the last cookie. I asked him once why he never eats the last cookie, and he…

The Best At Home Manicure You Need To Know About Now

The Best At Home Manicure You Need To Know About Now

I remember a recent conversation very clearly that I with my mother BC (before COVID-19). I told her that the one thing that makes me feel put together more than anything is having a manicure. For this admitted gel addict, the closure of nail salons was just the tip of the iceberg of mounting stress, uncertainty, and fear surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. I am that friend who received countless memes of nail roots in my DM’s the day non-essential businesses…
