Sooooo... this is awesome. Net-A-Porter is currently offering 15% off everything in their current season collection—even the designer handbags you’ve been lusting over like this dream right here. Cult-favorite beauty and skincare is also included in the sale, because clearly my shopping habit needed another temptation, including Sunday Riley, Nars, and Charlotte Tilbury products. Check out my full round-up of sale favorites here and remember to use code NETAPORTER15 at checkout!
Any brand that’s all about multitasking products (therefore enabling me to skip steps in my routine) is absolutely aces in my book. First Aid Beauty recently launched an eye cream that combines retinol AND hyaluronic acid, essentially the under-eye dream team. I’m also super excited about their new primers, which I’ve recently had the opportunity to test out. The Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer is great for dry, dull skin, and if you have super dry, sensitive skin, you should try their Ultra Repair Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer. Pores Be Gone Matte Primer is also great for oily or combination skin. Applying a primer under your foundation is an absolutely essential step for ensuring it stays in place all day and I’m a big fan of these products because they allow me to skip other skincare steps by packing the primer in with those ingredients as well. For example, on dry days, I’d typically apply a hyaluronic acid product before my primer—now I don’t have to!
Spoiler alert: This show is a MUST-SEE. The New York Times Critics’ Pick Come From Away Musical is about the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them—unveiling a side of the September 11th tragedy that few know about. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. The music, cast, staging—everything—is spectacular. Can't recommend highly enough!
I’m refreshing my tees for spring, as one does, and I really love the neckline on this beauty. Yes, yes I could continue right along with the standard Vs and crewnecks, but why not have a little more fun with the stuff you wear preeeeetty much constantly? I think we’ll be seeing more of this neckline this year, just a thought. One note, a review mentions that it runs small, so size up. Otherwise, enjoy a killer top that shows off your collarbone.
I just want to talk about seasonings for a moment, okay? These are both AMAZING and can be thrown on so many things to add flavor and end meal monotony. The Everything Bagel Seasoning (which is exactly what it sounds like) is PHENOMENAL on chicken, salads, eggs, a random avocado—you name it. The Chili Lime Seasoning, similarly, is my favorite on a hard boiled egg, roasted cauliflower, chicken, even fruit (just trust me). Essentially if you’re bored with something you eat all the time, these seasonings will un-bore you. Yum.
Never a fan of relying on WIFI I haven’t met before, I’m a big believer in traveling with one’s own solution to sketchy on-the-road internet. We traveled with this one while we were in Europe, and it’s a winner. It’s a rental product, so you tell Hippocket your travel dates, and they send you the device before you go, or send it to your hotel for when you arrive. Then, you just return it in the prepaid envelope at the end of your trip. There’s no device rental fee, and shipping is free both ways. If you’re traveling for seven days in Europe, unlimited data is only $10 a day! For the ability to work securely wherever, whenever, that is a steal. I’ve also heard this one on Amazon is also fantastic, and particularly great for traveling in Asia.
New Yorkers! Or anyone who’s planning to visit New York! Niche Niche is a new, ridiculously fun restaurant, where the essential vibe is “a dinner party every night,” and they mean it. The menu changes each night, and the food is paired to the wine, not the other way around. Each night a different “host” curates a wine lineup (wineup, hi) featuring really amazing wines you’re probably unfamiliar with but will obsess about soon enough. It’s an intimate space, the playlist is perfect, and the concept is simply so fun.
