Little bit of what I’ve been up to lately. Lovely breakfast at Sunday in Brooklyn. The farmhouse decor gives me feel good vibes. Overall v cool place to go with friends or on a date.
Pancakes 🥞 yum. You know when you eat some bougie breakfast that’s hyped so hard and you’re expecting it to be the most amazing thing you’ve ever put to your lips? Yeah. This was okay. Should’ve tried something else. Very decadent, but too malty and chocolatey for me. Looks amazing though!
Some easy car shopping at McLaren. LOL just kidding. This Mirawai White color though, looks gorgeous. I want all of the things in this color. Blue white. Into it.

I'm listening to this on audiobook. Many times. Trying to absorb.
he Great South Bay iced over. Starting to melt a bit finally, these pictures were from a walk I took on an almost 60 degree day in January this past Sunday.
IT’S HERE!! Glossier launched SOLUTION today. It’s an chemical, not physical exfoliator. So far, I LOVE it. Been using this product at night since last week and will say that my skin already feels softer and my chin feels smoother and looks clearer.
“gently sloughs dead cells away through chemical exfoliation, dissolving the bonds gluing problematic dead cells to the healthy skin beneath.”
It’s made up of the perfect blend of 3 acid actives:
AHA – exfoliate skins surface
BHA – goes deep to unclog pores
PHA – increases potency while keeping the formula gentle on skin
I have been using Biologique Recherche P50 1970 on and off for about 2 years and love the results. I get hormonal acne and lots of small under the skin bumps on my chin and around my mouth & t-zone area. I’ve had luck with P50 1970, but don’t like to use it too often because it tends to make me a bit red. Hoping that the gentle component of Glossier Solution will solve that. I highly recommend starting off light when you start this product – maybe use it once every other day at night to start and make sure you moisturize after. If you use it in the morning, do NOT forget to apply SPF for the day! Glossier Invisible Shield is a really nice, lightweight option – new price point too! Fresh skin is on the surface so you want to protect it and avoid burns!
Strongly recommended based on the clinical trials. The before & after photos are incredible! From my own trials, I’m also strongly recommending. I’m also very obsessed with the packaging pump! Insider tip – Glossier also launched cotton rounds! Use code “SOLUTION” for free shipping when you order both Solution & Cotton Rounds.
Chemical exfoliation > physical exfoliation. Much greater.
THE Mirror – online at Target – it’s sold out online – but I was able to find one at my local Target – ordered online for in-store pickup. Recommended by fellow Glossier rep and amazing beauty blogger Amelia.
Some product favorites:
Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich – this cream is so luxe, its thick but not oily, its dense and nourishing. Its full of ceramides and fatty acids. It has a very very light lavender scent that is quite enjoyable. Best part about this cream is that its not a “night cream”- you can use it under makeup everyday! Love this for when my skin needs some extra love. aka all winter long!
Youth to the People Superfood Eye Cream – combining superfoods & science. But honestly, this eye cream is not oily, absorbs quickly, it’s lightweight, I really like this product, would re-purchase.
