Welcome to June! Sharing my favorite buys from this month below. Some are random, some are just fun... all have made my life better.
Invisible Shield SPF
I've mentioned this before. This is the magic sunscreen I've been waiting all these years for. It seriously is way way way better than anything else I've ever tried. It's completely clear, does not smell like sunscreen, goes on smooth under makeup, doesn't make me break out, and is actually enjoyable to put on. Even knowing that sunscreen is a non-negotiable, I've cycled through so.many.other.options and pretty much dreaded using all of them. This one is legit. i will be buying it again as soon as it runs out.
Waterless Pet Shampoo
This is incredibly random but I'm SO glad I discovered it. Giving our dogs a bath ends up in a messy bathroom, wet couch, water everywhere, and traumatized dogs. I'd rather not. This shampoo is a foam that doesn't have to be washed out, so you don't have to get your pups wet. It makes them smell great - it's made by Paul Mitchell so you know it's the good stuff.
AG Maternity Jeans
Truth: feeling cool in maternity clothes is hard. Also true: it's easy to talk yourself out of spending money on clothes you'll wear less than a year. Most true of all: these jeans have been worth it. These jeans have made me feel cool while pregnant and also very comfortable. I waited about 1.5 months too long to buy these and I pretty much wear them every other day now. A Pea in a Pod is kind of lame, and kind of expensive, but don't be deterred. Wait for sales and then be strategic. Blog post coming soon about other maternity dressing tips. Let us know your questions in the comments below.
I have gotten so much use out of these since I bought them. The high edges make spills easier to avoid. They're perfect for dishes with a lot of sauce that still look best served on a plate. Fancy plates make me feel like I'm eating at a restaurant even when I'm eating leftovers. Budget friendly version here.
Killers of the Flower Moon
This is my book club book this month and I'm loving it. It's hard to put down but I'm trying to pace myself. This is one of those "I can't believe I didn't know about this" non-fiction books.
Here's the plot:
"In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.
Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances." Source
