    Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Self-Care Products

    After writing my Earth Day post with eco-friendly alternatives to common household items, I started thinking about other areas where waste and single-use plastics abound. It didn’t take me long to land on the beauty and self-care section of my life. Beauty and makeup products are notorious for their hard-to-recycle packaging and overuse of plastic, and […]

    11 Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Common Household Items

    Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

    I’m not a proponent of super couple-y Valentine’s Day traditions. Max and I religiously avoided going out to restaurants on vday even in the pre-pandemic era, and we don’t exchange gifts on this holiday.

    Sun Seeker: My Favorite Resort 2021 Looks

    One thing I think we can universally agree upon is that we could all use a vacation right about now. Even though I have no plans to venture somewhere warm anytime soon, I find myself perusing resort wear items and dreaming of sitting on a beach with a (strong) drink in hand. If you’re lucky […]
