Happy Friday! What a gorgeous week we’ve had – I’ve been living outside with my little guy. Can we get this weather to hang out for the rest of the season?

I just got this book that had been on my wishlist for a while, and it’s such a winner. I’m already planning next year’s garden, and we are still harvesting this year’s tomatoes. I especially love how much space is dedicated to the design and building of the garden beds themselves – and how she packs each bed full of goodness.
I stalled on trying Marcia Kilgore’s new venture, Beauty Pie, for a while. Now that I’ve tried it, I am ruined for other skin care products. Like a Costco membership, you pay a fee to shop their site, and you’re given a limit for how much you can spend per month. It’s brilliant, the products are super effective and luxurious, and the prices are lower than products from the drugstore. There’s currently a giant box of goodies on the way to my Mom for her birthday! Use this link and get a free month when you sign up.
- Super Healthy Skin Nourishing Body Polish ($17)
- Plantastic Overnight Miracle Face Oil ($12)
- Plantastic Apricot Butter Cleansing Balm ($19)
- Superdose C C-Suite Rapid Action Power Brightener ($14)
When I saw that this was sold out at my CVS, as well as Amazon and Target, I panic-bought two tubes from Ulta. This is my favorite sunscreen, with mineral coverage, not chemical. It has a sheer tint that looks way too dark for me when it comes out of the tube, but smoothes out to give my skin a great glow and blur red spots and dark circles. To top it all off, it cost $17, and lasts a good six months or more of daily wear. If you have a lighter/fair skin tone like mine, I very highly recommend you give this sunscreen a chance.
I think I saw Anne Sage of @citysage do this, and now I’m hooked. I usually add a cup or two of kale to my smoothies, and even with our super-strong blender, I still end up chewing my smoothie a bit. I saw Anne freeze their salad greens for a full 24-hours, then crush them into a green powder blend. This is far cheaper than a greens powder, saves salad greens about to go off, and makes for a way smoother green smoothie.
For a city gardener like me, I love seeing someone take their small space to the next level, creating a true oasis.
Have a lovely weekend!
