I Went to Walmart and Discovered My New Favorite Toothpaste

First thing’s first: I’m not going to pretend for a second that this post is sexy or stylish. It’s about toothpaste! A really amazing toothpaste, but still. I think we can all agree that the days of making everyday life look like a magazine spread are so over. Real life looks like me high-tailing it to Walmart in the middle of the day for new toothpaste from Burt’s Bees.

Walmart, where the lighting is not designed to make you look like a supermodel, it’s designed to help you find what you need. That is no small feat these days in the toothpaste aisle. When did it become an entire aisle?! I’d almost rather floss than shop for toothpaste. Kidding … of course I floss 😉. And yet, I am admittedly obsessive about oral care. I have a dental hygienist mom to thank for that.

Finding a toothpaste that is both effective and healthy has never been easy. Most products with simpler ingredients look adorable on the sink but don’t really deliver. The new Burt’s Bees Toothpaste is formulated with ingredients you can trust, and the Fluoride formulas work like the leading toothpastes at fighting cavities – there are Fluoride-Free formulas as well offering users the freedom to choose. (It also looks lovely on the sink because it’s Burt’s Bees).

Unlike standard toothpastes, the new line from Burt’s Bees is made without SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and artificial flavors & sweeteners. Yes, these things can be found in most toothpastes! And let’s be honest: we don’t just brush with this stuff, we ingest it.

I’m as thrilled about the simplicity and efficacy of Burt’s Bees Toothpaste almost as much as I am about the taste. So refreshing and minty, with none of that bitter taste or gritty texture—you know the one. You will actually look forward to brushing your teeth (after you wash your face, right?!)

Be sure to get yours at Walmart ASAP! I’m pretty sure everyone at my store snagged a tube after watching me make a scene. Just keeping it real.

Spring Break, Palm Springs Style

It’s finally heeere! And not a moment too soon. I’m in Palm springs co-hosting a Healers retreat with Fit & Fly Girl and you should see my suitcase…Or should I say suitcases. We are working out in 100-degree heat, getting our woo on, and of course luxuriating by the pool. Throw in group dinners and that’s easily 2-3 outfit changes A DAY. Here’s what I brought along!

I buy all of my coverups from J.Crew but this one can double as a dress! I have a feeling I’ll buy it in all colors before the season is out.

For the life of me I don’t know why the review on this aren’t better! Charlotte Tilbury’s Overnight Bronze & Glow Masque is my go-to self-tanner for face. The shade is PERFECTION—not too dark and never orange-y—and I love that it hydrates my skin overnight.

I take zero chances with sunblock and always prefer a physical or mineral formula because they’re a) healthier and b) easier on my skin. I’m on my second MyChelle Sun Shield Stick SPF 50 tinted because it’s perfect for travel or on the go. Also: $12!!

I don’t go anywhere without a BKR bottle. The glass keeps water fresher even during hot yoga, the loop is easy to hold on hikes, and the colors make me happy!

Aside from the fact that packing a rattan tote in my suitcase was an wildly inefficient use of space, it’s THE CUTEST. And it’s half off! Seriously, just buy it. Or buy the pink one. Farmer’s market, beach, around town . . . you’ll use it everywhere.

P.S. It’s also included in the Shopbop Event of the Season Sale: 20% off order under $500 and 25% off order over $500, now through 4/12. Use promotion code: EVENT19

s5 ep6: The ABCs of CBD with Beryl Solomon

It’s time . . . we’re talking about CBD. Joining me today is fashion industry alum Beryl Solomon who is making CBD accessible with her smart and yes, very stylish commerce site, Poplar. If you think CBD is just for hippies or people who want to get high—think again. Hemp-derived CBD is federally legal and it’s being used by everyone from your mom to that surprisingly chill woman sitting next to you on the subway. I’ve been known to serve it at parties and I like it. What is CBD for? Everything from anxiety relief to pain management to a better night’s sleep. Some people are even using it in place of anti-depressants. We’ll leave that up to you and your doctor to decide.

Spring Beauty Trends with Nordstrom

Every New York Fashion Week, Nordstrom goes backstage to assess the biggest beauty trends and then brings this intel to the rest of us. I don’t normally report on NYFW here because the looks can be so unwearable (remembers neon eyeshadow and invisible brows?). But this season I’m loving what I’m seeing. And who doesn’t need a refresh come spring? You can play with any of these trends, get help selecting the right products, and scoop up samples  and insider tips at Nordstrom’s Spring Beauty Trend events, going on now through May! For dates, store locations and to nab a spot at one the live runway shows head over here!

TREND: POWER POUT
Spring’s lip is amped up shine and vibrant color. No more matte, thank goodness! If you’re feeling shy, experiment with a bright tinted balm or sheer gloss.
Try: Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lip Lipstick (the texture is unreal)

TREND: ALL YOU
No more one size fits all in beauty! It’s all about finding the perfect shade, scent, and skincare regimen that works for YOU and lets your natural beauty shine through. When it comes to foundation and concealer, the finishes, formula and technology just keep getting better and better.
Try: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-wear Weightless foundation SPF 15

TREND: TROPICALIA SPRING
Color is back! It can be bold, bright, or subtle, the point is to play! Sunny citrus shades and saturated accents will put a spring in your step and update any neutral wardrobe. Why wait?
Try: NARS bronzer layered over a pop of NARS Liquid Blush in Torrid

What spring beauty trends or products are you looking forward to?
