    What I bought this week: Goop Goods

    Item(s): Manta hair brush and Goop GoodGenes Lift + Depuff Eye Masks. Reason: I’m actually not sure why I bought a new hair brush. … especially because, at $30, I think it’s the most expensive hair brush I’ve ever bought tbh. Anyways, it’s more like one of those soft bristle baby brushes that you probably […]

    Sold out? Read this first, then ask Gab

    If you read this blog, you know how much I love sourcing something “hard to get” myself. From Chanel Jade nail polish in 2009 to the 2022 Loewe x Spirited Away collaboration, the thrill of finding something that’s “hard to get” by myself is unbeatable. … until, I was looking for a gift for my […]

  • What I Bought This Year: Best of 2022

    What I Bought This Year: Best of 2022

    2022: Did it go by in an instant? Or was it a slow burn that sped up at the end? Either way (and personally speaking), this year was filled with Mt. Everest-like highs (visiting Montreal after ~10 years and how my husband immediately took to our puppy, Puddles!) and Davey Jones’s Locker lows (my dad […]

  • What I Bought This Week: Cosmoss by Kate Moss

    What I Bought This Week: Cosmoss by Kate Moss

    Item(s): Face Cream, Face Cleanser, and Sacred Mist from Cosmoss, by Kate Moss. Reason: Cosmoss is Kate Moss’ inaugural wellness line! Most of the ingredients are either moss extract (Cosmoss/Kate Moss, get it?) or CBD (which is snake-oil imo). … but, I bought it because of Kate Moss. As a fan for almost 2 decades, […]

  • What I bought this week: Glossier You Candle

    What I bought this week: Glossier You Candle

    Item(s): You Candle from Glossier. Reason: Just FYI, this would have also covered the Glossier Holiday Kits, but I ordered the You candle two weeks before the Holiday Kits came out… and my order for their Holiday Kits has been cancelled FIVE times and their customer service STILL hasn’t gotten back to me about how […]

  • What I bought this week: A.P.C. x Jane Birkin T-Shirt

    What I bought this week: A.P.C. x Jane Birkin T-Shirt

    Item(s): A.P.C. x Jane Birkin London t-shirt, in white. Reason: … because Jane Birkin, of course. Since it’s a seasonal item (or “collaboration”) and not a standard t-shirt you can buy at any time, I didn’t include it in my white t-shirt challenge. I don’t love buying expensive t-shirts… and this APC x Jane Birkin […]

    What I bought this week: MOTHER crochet top, because…

    If you’re here because of the Lavender Haze video, you might also like my “What I’d Wear At the Eras Tour” post! Item(s): MOTHER The Open Back Tank Top Reason: … is this enough of a reason? View this post on Instagram A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) Seriously though, I love MOTHER denim […]

  • What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    What I bought this week: We Are Doré

    Item(s): Le Trio from We Are Doré, which includes… Le Baume, Le Cleanser, and La Crème. Reason: I enjoyed Garance Doré’s blog (when it was a thing) and her book (still in publication). … and I also really enjoy French pharmacies. It’s true — if I’m in France or a French off-shoot, like St. Barths, […]

  • What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    What I bought this week: Guppyfriend Washing Bag

    Item(s): Guppyfriend Washing Bag Reason: … because microplastics are in synthetic clothing and that’s not OK! Seriously, I didn’t know this before. … but, it’s true. When you throw synthetic fibre clothing in the washing machine (at whatever temperature) microplastics/fibres are released and then the grey water from our washing machines basically is drained into […]

  • What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    What I bought this week: Maelove Skincare

    Item(s): Maelove The One Cream and Glow Maker Antioxidant Serum. Reason: I heard that Maelove’s Glow Maker serum is a solid dupe for Skinceuticals Vitamin C serum (~$170 USD) and since I’m at the bottom of the Skinceuticals bottle, I figured I should try Maelove’s next. Similar to Skinceuticals’ serum, I’m not entirely sure that […]
