Hi! How are you guys doing? Did you have a good week? Bad week? Up and down? Just wanted to send some positive vibes your way. And below is a picture of Teddy perched on the sofa looking as charming and sweet as ever.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // FareShare
I thought this was such a great grassroots organization in NYC. Private citizens can donate unused MetroCards to essential workers. Really simple idea that can make a small but meaningful difference for people who are still working and serving their community. You can sign up as an essential worker or find information for how to donate your unused MetroCards.
Not sure if these are new or if I’m just seeing them for the first time but how cute are these Rifle Paper Co pet accessories?! So chic and fun.
THREE // Hotel Providence Coloring Book
I stayed at Hotel Providence during my first trip to Paris and it was such a chic hotel. I loved everything about it, the location, the wallpaper, the morning croissants, and the restaurant downstairs. I’m still on their email list and they just sent out a fun printable coloring book. If you’re into coloring, you have to download it!!
FOUR // Daily Moisturizer
Follain, a clean beauty retailer, sent me this daily moisturizer. I’ve been using it for three weeks and I am impressed. I have tried a few clean moisturizers that just didn’t do it for me– some had weird smells, some never sank in, some were super greasy. This one is fantastic!! It does take a little bit of time to soak in (maybe four minutes), but I’m not really wearing makeup much so I don’t worry about it right now. (Though if I do put on makeup, I just wait a few minutes before applying.)
FIVE // J. Crew
I’ve been getting so many DMs asking for my opinion about J. Crew filing for bankruptcy. Ultimately, I really do believe it’s a good thing. They’re not going anywhere, just restructuring debt, and this would have happened pandemic or not. I’m rooting for them big time– and I hope this ends with them with a better brand and better product in the long run. I commented on the story for Adweek and thought the whole article shows where they might have missed the mark in the past and, hopefully, how they’ll get back to their roots. I love that they released a statement with a classic white button up as the background, I hope it’s a harbinger of what’s to come.
