Hi Friends, Happy Friday! I have been so crazy busy because … we moved! It went pretty smoothly but you know how much moving just in general sucks. Although, I can say it was worth it as we moved into a bigger place and we are loving it so far! I promise to get some pics up on the blog of the new digs once its decorated, so like in …. 20 years. Just Kidding. Kinda.
Moving right along, I posted on Instagram about how I have been using Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Full Coverage 12 Hour Foundation and loving it! First and foremost, I love that it is free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and gluten. Additionally, it provides excellent coverage and has SPF 15 which is always a must in a foundation. I am also using and loving Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, it is the real deal when it comes to covering dark circles. It has a thick and creamy texture that is buildable and also has anti-aging ingredients! This stuff was my best friend after moving, I needed it desperately to cover my VERY dark circles! Highly recommend checking out Tarte products for anyone looking to swap out their “junky bad ingredient” brands for these high preforming natural products!
Our new place is really close to a Costco so we decided to change up our routine and grocery shop there. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was VERY impressed at all the healthy/organic/clean products they are selling. We stocked up on lots of organic veggies and fruits, grass fed beef, organic ground turkey (two 1 lbs. packs for $4.99!!!), organic eggs, organic cold brew coffee, True Story Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage, Suja probiotic fruit water (so yummy!), Chipotle Bitchin’ Sauce and Wild Planet Albacore Tuna (both mentioned in a previous post, PALEO PANTRY). I was pretty excited to see that Costco has some pretty excellent prices on quality meats which can sometimes be too expensive to buy at Whole Foods or any other high end grocery store. Costco for the win!
Are you guys watching HBO’s Big Little Lies!? It’s sooooo juicy! My book club is reading the book right now but I opted to watch the show instead because the cast was too good to not watch! Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Adam Scoot, Alexander Skarsgard, and Zoe Kravitz!!! INSANE casting! I have seen the first 3 episodes and am already hooked. Not to mention the scenery is amazing, the story takes place in Monterey, CA and there are awesome shots of Big Sur in the opening scene. I cannot wait to see how this murder drama plays out!
Lastly, I wanted to share a new podcast I started listening to and LOVE … Lady Gang. It is 3 chics that hilariously interview celebrities and share their personal stories about life and what Hollywood is really like. I highly recommend the episode with Kate Somerville, esthetician to the stars, where she delves into all the best skincare tips! You know from my previous post, SKINCARE 101 WITH NIKKI OF JEZEBELLE SKIN SOLUTIONS, I am super obsessed with skincare! Check out this podcast and get ready to laugh your ass off!
I hope everyone has a fun weekend! Cheers!
