I didn’t do any shopping this week, except to replace my birthday present from Leo (these Bose headphones) with the in-ear noise cancelling version. I desperately want to be able to wear over the ear headphones again, but now that I wear glasses, I can’t find a pair that doesn’t push the arms into my temple and give me an intense headache. The new ones are wonderful though.
I am going to REI today to use my 20% off member coupon, and to Sephora for a few things using my VIB 20% off discount (VIB20). I honestly don’t buy much at Sephora anymore, preferring Integrity Botanicals, Whole Foods, or The Detox Market for natural/organic beauty brands, but they do have a few things I’m stocking up on:
Koh Gen Do cleansing wipes – I bought these recently because I prefer to take wipes for traveling and they are THE BEST makeup removing wipes I’ve ever tried. Not entirely natural or organic, but they’re good enough for me, especially because they work and feel so luxurious.
Sephora brand Nail polish remover – Probably so bad, but so good…I just can’t quit this, and appreciate how quickly it removes dark polish.
Deborah Lippmann cuticle remover – I’ve tried all the “knock-offs” of this, but still find this one to be the best cuticle remover out there. I’ve re-purchased several times.
What are you ordering from Sephora? Any good natural recommendations for us?
Oh, and in case you missed it, there are some wonderful new arrivals at SLOWRE: Miranda Bennett!!
Maybe you noticed the foldover leather clutch from Everlane in the photo above? I received it (as a complete surprise) earlier this week in advance of their new Made in Spain leather goods launch and carried it to dinner Tuesday night with my husband. It’s very good, and holds everything I usually carry with me in a larger bag comfortably. It does bulge out a bit when full though. I appreciate that the zipper is more subdued than Cuyana’s and doesn’t have that obnoxious gold zipper pull though.
BUT, I don’t need another leather clutch, so I’d like to pass it on to one of you. I don’t know how yet, actually, I’ll think of a fun giveaway for next week though 🙂
THIS. over and over again. And just trying to listen, understand and love; judgement serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever…NONE. And I should know – I’m a really prolific judge and also on the receiving end. I want it to end.
I also ordered a few of the books on Goop’s “hard-hitting” non-fiction reading list and added the rest to my wish list. I had already finished Hillbilly Elegy last week and found it very enlightening. Incidentally, J.D. Vance was on NPR Wednesday with his thoughts. I’ll review more as I read them.
And earlier this week I published a follow-up with more of my thoughts on Everlane – please read and add your own if you’re interested, or commented on last week’s Friday post.
I hope you have a great weekend! On Monday we’re flying out to Salt Lake City for my husband’s work trip (I’m tagging along) and I’m ridiculously excited, although I see there is SNOW in the forecast for our last day there…hmm…
Just had to add this too, in case you don’t follow me on Instagram:
I’m not sure she’s actually cold, but when I have the heater on in my office, she loves to lay by it. Maybe not the best idea?? But it always makes me laugh. So yes, it’s finally cooler here, and we don’t have the heat on yet, so my office is chilly. And in the winter months we don’t get ANY SUN on the house at all, so it stays cold inside…
