I had a busy, cozy week at home. This week was one of my biggest in terms of campaigns & collaborations going live and the balance of it all was a lot but I am so grateful for all of you showing up & supporting the content. Thank you, thank you! By the way – I continue to have issues with my RSS feed (Feedly didn’t publish 5 of my posts last week – yikes!) so the best way to get new posts continues to be by signing up to receive them in your inbox. Really sorry about the inconvenience! This has been a big headache that troubleshooting hasn’t been successful in resolving. Oy!
I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup & have a wonderful weekend!

Just popping by to say hello! I finally ordered the Caudalie products you suggested in your maskne article and I’m very excited to try them. I also finally got the chance to order the Eborian BB creme! Looking forward to seeing what all the hype is about. I can always count on you for practical product suggestions. It’s rare that you find an influencer that is so genuine about the items she promotes. I recently tried the Brigeo Scalp Revival shampoo you talked about in September and I’ve loved it. Thanks Meghan!
This made my day, Monica! Thank you so much for the kind words & trusting my recommendations!
