Happy Friday! I have wanted to do a post like this for quite awhile, and figured that fridays would be the best day to have a chit chat post. I come across a ton of things during the week (books, food, beauty, clothing, etc) and always want to share it with everyone.
1 | I’m a huge fan of podcasts. I love that you can be doing other things while listening and absorb info without having to be stagnant. One that I've really been enjoying lately is called Monocycle. Hosted by Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, it's a super-short podcast about anything and everything. She cracks me up and often makes really good points on a variety of issues. A great episode to start with is Am I Comfortable or Complacent?
2 | Two of the leading organic makeup artists and makeup line founders, Rose-Marie Swift of RMS Beauty and Kirsten Kjaer Weis of Kjaer Weis, have launched new products that I’m keen to check out.
+ RMS products are pretty pricey and the pots last a long time, so I was so stoked to see the new Signature Sets, which offer a way to try out multiple products from the brand at a significantly lower cost than purchasing everything individually. There are two sets available, each containing five of RMS's most popular products: two lip2cheeks, two highlighters/bronzer, and one lip & skin balm. It's a lot of bang for your buck -- I've got my eye on the Pop Collection for sure!
+ Kjaer Weis launched its first skincare product, The Beautiful Oil, to be used as a primer under foundation. The oil is causing quite a stir due to the eyewatering price tag – $300 CAD for 65ml, $255 for refills. I am a complete oil junkie so am very intrigued to see exactly what this does differently from other oils. At that price I’d expect life changing. Would love to hear from anyone who’s tried it.
3 | You guys! This chocolate will change your life. If you're a health conscious foodie, you'll appreciate the quality ingredients and the amazing flavour. Despite being dark chocolate, it feels smooth and creamy in your mouth. I literally CAN'T STOP eating it. Breakfast, evening snack, and maybe even secretly a little after lunch. OBSESSED. You can get these at most health food stores.
4 | Nothing makes me feel more relaxed than using my (new) jade roller to either wake my skin up in the morning, or soothe my skin before bed. It puts me in a meditative state of mind, especially at night when I roll my face while lying down in bed. I just love it!
5 | I truthfully just cannot stop wearing this striped shirt from Everlane. It's become my daily uniform.
6 | A few posts worth noting: These top brands said WHAT about natural beauty products?, Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Expands Into Vitamins and Work Is My Self-Care.
Happy Friday to you.
