I’ve had lots of requests for another new finds post – apparently you guys like them! I like writing them : )
First off, I was recently interviewed by Cville blogger and podcaster Jenée Libby for her podcast Edacious. Check out our interview here! I had a great time talking with Jenée and was humbled to be asked to be a part of Edacious. All of her episodes have been so fun to listen to – there are episodes about No Bull Burgers, Splendora’s Gelato and Brookville – all local favorites of mine!
Amika Dry Shampoo
I absolutely love Birchbox, and this was the best find of the year. I hadn’t tried a dry shampoo before, but my hair is definitely the kind that needs to be washed everyday so a shampoo without a shower sounded appealing. This product is AMAZING and can make my hair look freshly washed if I’m going to the gym or showering later in the day for some reason. Plus it makes it look blonder somehow! Also the smell…..incredible. Everything in the Amika line smells awesome.
This mozzarella is SO GOOD! Probably because it’s from free range and grass-fed dairy = high quality. Amazing with tomatoes! Found it at Whole Foods!
Stitch Fix Summery Tops
Stitch Fix has been killing it this summer – I have kept nearly everything they’ve sent! My favorites have been sleeveless summer tops. I love them all! Clearly lace is in…
This book is such a great summer read. I am only halfway through, but I’m really enjoying it. The women characters are so real, and the storyline is good!
I discovered it because the author Kristy Woodson Harvey (also a design blogger!) reached out to me about including a KERF recipe in a companion cookbook. Inside you’ll find my Better-Than-Fried Okra recipe along with a bunch of other Southern recipes. To get a PDF copy of the cookbook with your book purchase, just email Kristy at [email protected]!
Rodan And Fields
My friend Katherine recently started selling Rodan & Fields products, which are developed by the dermatologists who developed Proactiv. She gave me a sample set to try out and share my thoughts with you guys. I’m using the Reverse line, which is designed to brighten and even skin tone, reduce lines and wrinkles and defend against sun exposure. It comes with an exfoliating facial cleanser, a toner, vitamin C and retinol serums, and a sunscreen. I love the simplicity of the four steps – everything you need all in one set. And, as a smell person, the smell is great – very fresh and like a shampoo (and I think shampoos are the best smelling products!) I like all of the products so far! Email Katherine at [email protected] if you want to learn more!
I have been listening to so much music this summer! Absolutely obsessed with One Direction at the moment. I know – boy band and all – but their songs are just so good. My favorite is Steal My Girl, but I also love Happily, Where Do Broken Hearts Go, No Control and You and I. Undecided on the new single Drag Me Down, but it’s really growing on me!
What is playing on your summer soundtrack!?
