If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my recent post about Fetch Rewards. This genius little app rewards you for going to the grocery store which is convenient, because that’s basically all we’ve been doing for five months anyway. All you have to do is download the app and upload a picture of your grocery receipt (or e-receipt) to earn rewards and redeem giftcards to literally every store under the sun. We're talking Amazon giftcards, Nordstrom, Sephora, travel, entertainment, you name it. It's the simplest thing in the world. Don’t forget to use code MARY to get 2,000 bonus points when you sign up and upload your first receipt!
Let’s just call this charming new development what it is. Your skin might not be used to having a mask on it all the time, and it’s possible that it can be causing some skin irritation. This is a great post that walks you through a dermatologist's recommendations of what to do if you’re experiencing any skin issues caused by wearing your mask.
When’s the last time you cleaned your hairbrush? You know what, don’t answer that. Instead, check out this hairbrush cleaning brush. That’s right, a brush to clean your brush. It’s one of those things that once you know it exists, you can’t un-need it, you know?
I love it when an affordable internet product really lives up to its reputation, and this eyeshadow by Julep does just that. This less-than-ten-dollars eyeshadow comes VERY highly rated and in enough colors to keep you busy through the end of 2020. The stick format makes it easy to apply, and the powder finish means you’ll be able to create beautiful, blended looks effortlessly. Also, it's waterproof and promises not to crease. BRB I'm buying five of them.
I love a good marriage of classic and slightly prairie vibes, and those two moods come together beautifully in this Free People frock. The dress is a romantic take on late-summer style with a poofy sleeve, square neck, and beautiful button detailing. It comes in three colors but I have my eye on “Vintage Peach.” Also, how cool does it look in the product photos with that knit vest worn on top?!
Even during this excuse for a summer we’re having, negronis are THE drink. They’re such an easy, classic cocktail that’s been pairing perfectly with patios forever, even if the "patio" is your fire escape. Doesn't matter. The Infatuation recently published a guide to three takes on a negroni that will ensure you round out these warm weather days free of beverage boredom.
Among the rather significant inconveniences posed by a pandemic is the fact that there’s no new season of The Great British Baking Show. Fear not, broken-hearted friends, there’s a fix. Literally. It’s a show called The Repair Shop, and it’s all of the charming, heartwarming British niceness you need to see this summer. It's been out for a few months but somehow I just stumbled upon it for the first time this weekend. There are several seasons, ensuring you can spend a weekend on your couch wrapped in a blanket and gently cradling a cup of tea to soothe your nerves. Or so I've heard.
You know what’s fun? Afternoon iced coffee when you’re in a slump and/or sleep deprived and maybe also it’s brutally hot outside. You know what’s annoying? Having to make and then chill a whole pot of coffee just to satisfy a craving. Enter Jot, the liquid coffee concentrate that gives you instant access to glorious, glorious iced coffee whenever you want it. There are literally two ingredients in this concentrate, water and coffee, so you know you’re getting a quality product without any nonsense in it. Which is great because when I need an afternoon iced coffee, I am in no mood for nonsense, I assure you. But don't take my word for it, peep those reviews.
I don’t say things like this lightly, but every woman on earth needs these pants. They’re Spanx’s The Perfect Black Pant (aka Back Seam Skinny Pant), and they are indeed perfection. They feel like leggings, but are structured and designed to look like real pants. They’re pure genius in pant form and you need a pair—even better, you need a pair while they’re on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Now would also be the IDEAL time to grab a pair of Spanx’s faux leather leggings, while you’re at it...
I am (very) often on instagram asked where I get my gold earrings. So often in fact that I decided to create a real resource for anyone asking where I got the pretty things adorning my earlobes. Check out this post for some of my absolute favorite earrings that celebrate classic style and essentially go with everything.
