3 Best Summer Fragrances

While I generally don’t subscribe to the #lovesummerhateeverythingelse mindframe, I do believe summer fragrances are superior. There is something about my summer wardrobe style that just feels best punctuated by a final walk through a misted cloud of a spot-on seasonal scent. Although I’ve tried many, there are three that I’ve been loving for years and one is under $20. These are the 3 best summer fragrances:…

The Refreshing Organic Mist Sunscreen I Am Using Daily

Coola Full Spectrum 360° Refreshing Water Mist Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 18

It’s peak hot girl summer over on the East Coast, and by that I mean I am melting. It’s a sweltering mix of dry heat and thick humidity and I will take any relief I can get. I recently tried a new water mist sunscreen, which vaguely reminded me at first glance of my mother’s Evian spray from back in the day. Apparently, it’s still a popular beauty item. However, my new perk-me-up has SPF and smells subtly like a…

The Best Hair Mask

The best hair mask

I casually mentioned to my friend the other day that my hair had seen better days. Normally when my hair is short it looks and feels healthier, but between the sun, the sand, and pool, my ends were feeling dehydrated. Since cutting my hair short, I still try to hold off on washing at least every two days, however, my lob requires a bit more styling than my long locks. Rather than air dry every other wash, I feel like…

The Best Self Tanner

Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Drops Review

I have tried self tanners in the past and had given up hope that any brand would ever work for me. My skin is on the browner side of the spectrum thanks to my Mexicana mama, but I sometimes want a little more even color on my legs and face. After week 6 of quarantine, I caught a glimpse in the mirror and thought I had seen a ghost (maybe I’m being dramatic but I feel it). My complexion looked…

The DIY Root Touch Up Kit You Need Right Now

DPHue Root Touch Up Kit Review

The only thing worse than my nail roots were my grey hairs all over my scalp. For some backstory, I have had grey hair since around my 12th birthday. I started dying my hair Liv Tyler Empire Records era auburn in middle school to mask it, which went well with my Doc Martens and flannels. As an adult, I’ve come to rely on 4-6 week apart root touch-ups to keep things copacetic. At first I accepted my roots and it…

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…
