Loving This Week: Watermelon Glow + Luxe Laundry Detergent

COS Sweater - Dried van Noten Boots - Glow Recipe Sleeping Mask - The Laundress Detergent - Misha Nonoo Shirt

It’s so rare to find a skincare product that 100% delivers on all its promises. So, when I tripped across Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow in a bag of samples from Sephora, I wasn’t expecting a lot. But, I’m happy to report that this delicious-smelling sleeping mask made my skin as glowing and even-textured as promised. I’ve found a new favorite.

In other shopping news, a pair of brocade boots that are richly detailed, but still completely at home in a neutral wardrobe. And perfumed laundry detergent that will make your wardrobe smell just

Winter Vacation in Europe? Here Are The Best Clothes To Pack

I am the least likely person to enjoy a winter vacation. I was born and raised in California, and currently live in a part of Nor Cal that does not have weather. Like, any weather. Below 60 is a super cold day; anything above 80 is a massive heat wave. I’m nicely acclimated to room temperature.

Loving This Week: Comfort Pumps + a Mulberry Silk Dress

Modern Citizen Blouse - Longchamp Tote - Naturalizer Pumps - Kiehl's Skincare - COS Dress

This week’s picks answer some pressing shopping questions like, “Can Longchamp really improve on their already perfect travel tote?” And, “Can a trendy heel also be orthopedic-level comfortable?” The answer is “yes” to both.

Also, buying holiday-packaged beauty goods in January is the best. The prices are fantastic, and literally no one is going to ever see (or care) that your lotion has snowflakes on the label.

Loving This Week: A Cozy Cape + The Warmest Hat Ever

Uniqlo Cap - By Terry Eyeshadow - Foundrae Ring - J.Crew Cape - Everlane Crossbody

I love winter, but my thin California blood can’t handle real cold. I’m so glad I found out about Uniqlo’s Heattech line. I’ve been a loyal Heattech customer since the days where you had to special order it from Japan. Luckily Uniqlo is now available in major cities and online. I couldn’t make it through winter without it. A couple of snuggly Heattech knit caps were high on my shopping list this week. In other news, an inspiration quote ring that isn’t too sweet to pair with a mostly-black wardrobe. I had no idea this was possible.
