The Monday Rundown

the monday rundown

Aveda Pure Abundance Style-Prep: I’m really loving this product lately.  In fact, I’ve been catching whiffs of the amazing “Aveda smell” that all of their products have, and I’m way into it.

Reese Witherspoon: I don’t normally cover anything pop culture-related in The Monday Rundown, however, this was too funny to pass up.  “You’re about to find out who I am,” indeed.

Haute Betts Gypsy bracelet: After a weekend at Coachella (ok, really just staying at The Ace in Palm Springs), I’m feeling a fun friendship bracelet.

A classic milkshake: Currently craving ice cream…in fact, I just bought these old-fashioned dishes at the 99 cent store so I can re-create the full look and feel.

One Bag & Three Beauty Obsessions


I haven’t done One Bag & Three Beauty Obsessions in awhile, BUT it’s back.




  • Narciso Rodriguez for Her: My perfume staple since college, this fragrance is a winner EVERY time.  The men love it. Trust.
  • Kate Somerville Exofilate Body Intensive Exofoliating Treatment: An intensive exfoliating treatment on my face?  Absolutely not.  On my body?  Yes, it’s a different ball game.  I love a good body slough and this stuff does it’s job.
  • Bumble & Bumble Prep: Lately I’ve been all about the prep.  I’ve been using a makeup primer and now, I’m also into the hair styling prep.  Bumble & Bumble’s products are fantastic so I wasn’t surprised when I started using and loving this prep product.

Tattoo-Inspired Scents by Inky

So after being at Coachella all weekend, I’ve actually been thinking about getting a second tattoo.  Ok, well I’ve actually been thinking about a second tattoo for about three years now but as of this past weekend, I’m getting a little more serious about it.  As a strange coincidence, I just received some info on this cute link of tattoo-inspired fragrances by Inky, all of which are customized to fit individual personalities.  Perhaps one of these fragrances will be a good placeholder until I can figure out my sitch?  We will see.  Sadly, they are not available online but you can grab one (or all of them) at your local Target for only $5.99!

Skin Cancer Awareness Month

So if you don’t already know, May is national Skin Cancer Awareness Month.  This is something especially near and dear to my heart, as my closest Aunt passed away of skin cancer when she was only 43 years old back in 1996.  Luckily, more and more people are becoming aware of how harmful the sun is to our skin and health but it’s still not enough.  One in five Americans will STILL get skin cancer every year and even though it’s the most preventable cancer, it’s also one of the most deadly.  Can you even believe that 50% of Americans don’t even use sunscreen?!

Skincare giant La Roche-Posay created this great new public awareness campaign called “Save Our Skin” in hopes to increase awareness. For every person who signs up for the campaign, La Roche Posay will donate money to The Skin Cancer Foundation and The Women’s Dermatological Society.  In the meantime, here are my current SPF favorites.

Too Faced Love Lisa Luxury Lip Balm SPF 15 – People often forget that, yes, even your lips can sunburn.  This product is inspired by the brand founder’s sister, Lisa, who is battling stage 4 melanoma (and kicking it’s butt).  A huge portion from sales goes towards the Love Lisa Melanoma Research Foundation Grant to help find a cure.

La Roche-Posay Anthelious 45 for Face -My complexion is tricky at best.  I’ve tried a lot of “for the face” sunblocks and this one is by FAR my favorite.  It’s super light but you still get excellent protection from the sun, with out the breakouts.

Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Body Mist Sunblock SPF 70 – I already listed this cooling mist as one of my Coachella essentials but I use this on my body pretty much any time I go to the beach.  As a freckled white girl, the sun gets me hot faster than most and this is the perfect cooling agent.
