Are you all enjoying your summer? I can't believe my spring favorites post was already more than three months ago when it was still cold outside in Brooklyn. Let's get into my favorites:
francesca's palazzo pants
I ordered these beachy, palazzo pants from Francesca's and they're my new favorite thing. They're so flattering, breezy, and feel like pajamas. They're the perfect thing for hot days and luckily, there are lots of other ones like them like these, these, and these.
le labo hinoki hand soap
This has been one of my very favorite beauty purchases of the year. The smell is so good: warm and almost a little peppery. It makes washing my hands feel like a luxurious ritual!
indie lee brightening cleanser
Another favorite beauty purchase is the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser. It's a nontoxic formula that smells like strawberries and has been the perfect hydrating cleanser for summer.
I've wanted a face steamer for a long time and finally got this one. It's small, so you can hide it away easily and super simple to use. I like to drop a little essential oil in the water for aromatherapy steams. This has been so good for my skin and also my sinuses when I recently had a cold.
dr. teal's coconut bath bombs
I love these little bath bombs! You can find them easily at the grocery store or on Amazon. They smell great and are made with Epsom salt, plus they dissolve really quickly which is good thing in my eyes.
california vineyards candle
I am loving this black cherry merlot scented candle from Bath & Body Works. Every time I light it, my entire space smells amazing in minutes.
eucalyptus room spray
Another favorite from Bath & Body is the stress relief eucalyptus and spearmint room spray. I love B&B room sprays because the scent is so concentrated that it doesn't take much to fill the entire room. This scent in particular is super calming.
God bless coconut Lacroix. I pretty much love any sparkling water but this one is my favorite. It's crisp but with a sweet coconut essence and it's the best with a little slice of lime.
blue buddha lemon elderflower tea with ashwagandha
Another drink that's been really good this summer is the lemon elderflower tea from Blue Buddha. It's really mild and light, plus it has the adaptogen ashwaghanda.
sweet corn salad
I've been making a really delicious sweet corn salad lately that's sort of a mixture of two different recipes. It's simple---just mix together cooked sweet corn, halved cherry tomatoes, diced chives, basil, and dressing (equal parts apple cider vinegar and olive oil with salt and pepper to taste). This is such a good dish to pair with a crusty baguette and cold white wine.
Do you guys listen to her? I swear I've been playing her music nonstop in my car for the entire summer. She has a really stylized pop vibe which I love. Some of my favorite songs are "Casanova", "Old Habits Die Hard", and "Vintage" (written by Troye Sivan which is probably why I like it so much).
the higher self podcast with sahara rose
This has been my favorite new podcast of the summer. Sahara talks all about different ayurvedic and wellness topics from intuitive astrology to ayurvedic nutrition. It's a fun and educational one to listen to on your commute.
