The perfect “work to weekend” striped dress straight from Joe Fresh (and it’s only $29!). Follow my lead, get yourself to a Joe Fresh or JCPenney (if you’re not in NYC) ASAP and buy this in anticipation of the warm spring/summer weather that will eventually come our way.
Spring Closet Cleaning -
Last year I did a Spring Closet Makeover post and followed that up with a post about how to wear your entire closet. In addition to my spring cleanout last year, I did one pre-fall/winter and I just tackled my closet again yesterday. After several hours of sorting and resorting, I ended…
Jaclyn’s post last year was really helpful. Something tells me this one will be too.
i already texted this to lauren, because it was too important to wait for her to notice it on tumblr.
Don’t even get me started on my love of Cashew. She truly is the breakout star of Season 2.
In today’s world, there’s a lot of talk about social media, brands who are doing it right and wrong, brands that are good at engaging customers and keeping them loyal, it’s everywhere you look. First Aid Beauty is one of those brands doing it right.
They first came on my radar after I got a gift card for a spa facial at a work event last fall. After telling the facialist that I worked in nonprofit and couldn’t afford the high end stuff, she pointed me in the direction of the nearest Sephora & FAB’s products. You guys, their face wash, facial radiance pads, and ultra repair cream have been my skin’s saving graces this winter. I haven’t had dry itchy skin once and every time the polar vortex left me with windburn, my beloved ultra repair cream was there to save me. Being the weirdo that I am, I tweet them all the time gushing over their products. It is true love for real.
So I was incredibly touched when their social media manager reached out to me this week and offered to send me the purifying mask with red clay. And I was even more touched when I opened the package and found a bottle of their new Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery in there as well.
I’m not a “big” blogger. In the grand scheme of things, I’m probably not huge on their radar and my “social influence” probably won’t bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of sales. But I am a loyal customer. And when I believe in a product, I’ll tell everyone I know that it’s SO good and they HAVE to try it. After this experience, I will not only be sticking with them as a loyal customer, I’ll also be sharing this story with my friends as they compliment my gorgeous skin.
Thanks First Aid Beauty!
First Aid Beauty did not ask me to write a review or anything. I just think good brands deserve acknowledgement.

My Josh Schwartz loving heart is having SUCH a fangirl moment about this.
LittleLG turned 5 on Saturday. I forgot to mention it because I have no concept of work/life balance these days (our biggest fundraiser of the year is 12 days away!) and I was deep in a House of Cards pit (I’m finished, by the way. What’d everyone think?)
Anyway, thanks for sticking around and reading! I started this blog when I was unemployed, living in a windowless bedroom in a basement apartment in Brooklyn, and now I’m writing this post in between work emails from my sunny 5th floor apartment on the Upper East Side. Crazy what a difference 5 years can make.
Here’s to many more!
