OFF-TOPIC, BUT I WANNA MAKE YOUR DAY. How does this resonate with you? Here’s the students and teachers of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta welcoming their new 5th grade students. Just imagine if all schools (and beyond) encouraged this kind of support and love between one another. Like my little nephew used to say, “More dis.” Congrats @mrronclark for your gorgeous vision that’s SO needed today. The majority of us are incredibly good, we just need more outlets to express it...especially kids. #love
NEW THINGS IN TIME FOR SPRING! Yes, we are in the middle of yet another snowstorm here in NY (which, to be honest, I don’t actually mind) but it’s all about Spring Green Beauty on my blog as I’ve written about a new aromatherapy fragrance release, blue algae and mushroom supplements and a 10% off of H Is For Love’s new Kinu glowy body balm with code: KINU10 until Sunday! Link in my bio!
MY ADIDAS I thought only Run DMC could make me truly love Adidas, but when they hooked up with the Parley organization to create a sneaker line? Oof! Link in bio. These, the Ultraboost, use yarn spun from Parley Ocean Plastic (made from recycled waste intercepted from beaches and coastal communities before it reaches the ocean). Do I even need to get into how perfect that is? Parley founder, Cyrill Gutsch, calls plastics a “design failure” and one of many threats to the oceans. Agreed. Smart guy doing good work for our Earth. Get yourself a pair, link in my profile. ♀️
SPRING SALE NOW. Get up to 15% off on green beauty! Link in my profile, Boo. I recommend checking out the new Ilia foundations that ah-mazing makeup artist Sheri Stroh keeps raving about to me on DM (I have to figure out my shade). Profile = link. *Plastic bubble wrap is from a recent order and is set to be reused!
DESK OF A BEAUTY BLOGGER. I just looked down and was like, “Is this normal?” Other people have spread sheets and calculators and I’ve got gloss, a Gua sha tool, a glass of The Beauty Chef’s Glow (and, here’s the buzzkill...a Jury Duty notice ). I’ve been trying to get you some good swatches of these new KW glosses, but the pics aren’t doing them justice. So, the best swatches are still the ones on my blog. Let me also note that these new Kjaer Weis glosses are refillable! I am so loving them and I’m very picky with glosses because I either detest the scent or the texture, but these are perfection! Link in profile.
OPRAH SAID that the first thing she says in the morning after she opens her eyes is, “Thank you.” I do the same, but (and this is true) I say, “Thank you for my bed.” If you know me, you know that nobody loves a nap quite like me and I get about 8 hours of sleep a night. SO...to the point of this post...I only wish I had known to buy a non-toxic/green mattress when I was shopping for one. If you are in the market for a new mattress, my readers can get $100 off one. They’re made from natural materials, made without toxic flame retardants/pesticides, made with certified organic cotton, they’re handmade and they have free shipping and returns. Plus, they donate 1% of all revenues to environmental nonprofits! Link in my bio.
GLOSSY! No one loves a new green beauty lip product more than me, so I was foaming at the mouth to get my hands on the new Kjaer Weis Lip Glosses! As you know, gloss can be a tricky thing, so I was thrilled to finally test them and love them. Semi-sheer, non-sticky and made with organic ingredients, they are LOVELY! On my blog now, I describe the colors and there is even a special deal for you (limited, tho). Link in my bio!
SOLD OUT! Okay, so click the link in my bio to get this Limited Edition Glam Bag free with your $125 purchase. You can also use my code: TGPJ for 10% off (no May or Kypris with code). What do I suggest you get? The new Kjaer lip glosses (natch), some Beauty Chef, Osmia and Ilia! Deal ends Sunday or until they’re out! ♀️
BLACK MINT. On my blog (link in bio) I’ve added some new green beauty releases (and limited free gifts with purchases, too). Here’s the latest from Odacité, their vegan, non-gmo Black Mint Cleanser that transforms from a gel to a super detoxifying (and invigorating) foam. Perfect for oily/acne-prone skin and it won’t leave your skin dry! Odacité does it again. Check out my blog for specials, new releases and scoop on this cleanser.
PUHLEAZE tell me that you’re wearing a SPF everyday! If you’re not, I can guess why...in the past they’ve felt heavy, made you break out, were sticky and smelled awful, right? Well, I’ve just written a little blog post on four of my favorites with different feels, scents, consistencies etc., however, they all have a few things in common: they’re good for your skin, are light, feel lovely going on, have clean ingredients and won’t give you that “I feel like I have a layer of Silly Putty on my face.” So, click the link in my bio if you’re in the market for some new sun protection!
CURRENT HAIR/SKIN SITUATION...this morning I used The Hair Oil from Prim Botanicals and the scent is otherworldly (lavender, rosemary, orange bitter and vanilla). Plus, the scent actually stays in your hair. If you’ve never used a hair oil before, I recommend you do, especially if you color treat your hair as it will TOTALLY revive your it. I also just started using The Face Oil and my skin is drinking it up. They also have a lip tints and more. DEAL: for a limited time, get a free travel size The Hair Oil with any Prim product purchased. Use code: PRIMGIFT. Link to to offer in my bio!
MARCH, BABY! If you love yourself some super-nourishing skin care, go for the March box! For $39 ($105 value) you get the Siam Seas Yen Heal & Hydrate Toner (it’s a unique toner and serum in one) and the Morning Delight Cleanser. I’m telling you, they’re like food for the skin! Get them before they sell out. Link in bio.
SPRING-ISH. Today is a gorgeous day here in New York and I just can’t help thinking about warmer weather. If you, like me, like to update your makeup bag seasonally, I recommend taking advantage of my 15% off over at vegan Clove + Hallow. They have some LOVELY lipsticks and glosses in pinks, nudes and peaches. Link in bio!

It’s a GREAT one with a Bkr bottle, W3ll People Nude Peach Multi-Use, Hum Killer Nails supplement (not pictured because it’s on my desk and I forgot), Kahina Argan Oil, Mermaid Sea Salt Spray, Erbaviva Body Lotion, Goop Exfoliating Instant Facial + Olverum Bath Oil ($190 value). Everything in here is lust-worthy!
POWER DUO. Only a few left! Okay, so subscriptions for the February Boxwalla Box are closed, BUT... if you click the link in my profile, there’s a few left for ONE-time purchase. This box has a total retail value of $165 and is selling for $59.95. With two full-sized products (and a makeup bag) it’s a superb deal. Contains Mun’s Aknari Brightening Youth Serum (smells like roses and is for face, neck and eye) and Amly Face Mist to support healing sleep, collagen production, helps fatigued skin and more. Click link in my bio before they’re .
SKIN MAGIC. Out of all the oils that I’ve tried, I have to say that Geranium from SkinOwl is one that made an *immediate* difference for my skin. I am also totally obsessed with their Beauty Whip Mask (I currently have a few bottles in my refrigerator and just used it this morning as a makeup primer). Get this box for as little as $39 (it has a value of $115). Link in my bio. I’m not sure how many are left, but I received mine today.
MOROCCAN BLISS. Okay, I’m kinda Kahina-obsessed, but since I just received their new releases, I can’t help but be! Kahina has teamed up with Ulili to create this a candle scented with cedar, clove, ylang ylang and orange blossom essential oils. Everything about it is so superb, from the stunning ceramic jar, to the beautiful box and the candle itself which is crafted from vegetable and beeswax harvested at the base of Morocco‘s Rif mountains. I wish Instagram had a smell feature because it is SO lovely and romantic-smelling. Link in my bio for more information on this and their other their new release!
