The Point in Black was my very first pair of Rothy's, almost 3 years ago and are still my favorite style and color. I wear them constantly. Rothy's are created from plastic water bottles, machine washable, and incredibly comfortable. I love them for daily life + travel!

These jeans are made for gals with a little more junk in the trunk. Ya hear me? Most jeans are designed for a 10 inch different between your waist and hips -- these are designed for 12! Plus they're available in a petite inseam that is perfect for short gals like me.

This is my nighttime moisture. Vitamin C is a powerhouse against aging, and nothing has made a bigger difference in my skin like this has. It uses vitamin c, e, and green tea to nourish skin and I'm also crazy about the way it smells. Pressing it into skin before bed is my favorite ritual.

Beauty

I like to describe this as watercolor paint for your face. The gel formula evens out skintone but is still semi-sheer, allowing your skin to shine through so that it never looks cakey or overdone. SPF 30 and a clean formula are the cherry on top.

This is the eyeshadow I use and I love it. The ingredients are nice and the colors are subtle and not too sparkly. They look natural and make a perfect daytime look or a neutral smoky eye.

How can I summarize this mascara in 500 characters? It makes your lashes super long, has a soft, shiny formula that doesn't flake or clump. Your lashes look amazing all day and then it washes off super easily. Plus, it has lash-growing ingredients, too!

Limitless Lash Mascara

I don't have a discount code at this time but you can purchase these items through Ilia using the link below.

ILIA BEAUTY

An eye primer is one of my secret weapons. They help keep oils at bay to ensure your eyeshadow lasts all day (and night!). This one from ILIA has  naturally-sourced aloe, de-puffing arnica and rejuvenating rose hip ensure to give your eyes some extra TLC.

I started using clean makeup almost a decade ago, but the one product I struggled to replace until recently was my eyeliner. Natural ones just didn't hold up and always smudged. Then I found this one and I'll never look back.

NARS Orgasm has been my go-to blush for years, but this dupe, Nectar,  from Beautycounter is really good. I find that it needs a couple extra seconds of blending, but that it wears even longer than the NARS formula, without any of the bad-for-you ingredients.

One of my must-have products is a bright pink lipgloss. It's my go-to on days when I just want to brighten up my entire face and look quickly pulled together. I fell in love with Peony instantly and the formula is great --- smooth but not sticky.

I've lamented in the past about how I still use toxic lipsticks because it's so hard to find bright, bold colors with natural ingredients. Well, Beautycounter proved me wrong. This trio has all 3 of my signature shades and they are all perfection (and the formula is pretty awesome, too)!

I put a dime-size amount of this into my hair before blow-drying, concentrating on the ends. I'll also use a very small amount after my hair is dry to smooth any flyaways. It's a hair oil....but this one seems to work better than any I've tried and smells amazing, too!

There isn't a single hair product in the world that has made my jaw hit the floor quite like this one. Honestly I ran out of it for a few weeks during the 2020 Quarantine and my hair reverted to dry and brittle so fast. Getting a new bottle in the mail was a godsend.
