July Picks

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved a statement ring. Chrysoprase, Moonstone, and Aquamarine are what I’m naturally drawn to. And while I try to branch out to deeper jewel tones and earthy colors, I feel most comfortable wearing shades reminiscent of clouds and sea. Seen here are rings by unknown artists that I've collected over the years.


Our refreshing and rejuvenating skin primer is one product I use every single day no matter if I'm wearing makeup or not. I either apply it after my sunscreen for fresh and natural radiance, mix a drop together with my favorite foundation for a sheer veil of color, or use it before foundation to help prime, smooth, and set my skin. What I love most are the skin-loving ingredients such as Niacinamide (B3), Hyaluronic Acid microspheres, Vitamin E, Glucomannan, and Nasturtium Flower Extract.

Twice a week I apply eye gels that add radiance and wake up the skin around my very tired eyes.  After a day of Zoom calls, not drinking enough water, and getting lackluster sleep, these are a welcome addition to my weekly beauty rituals. Illuminating Eye Gels by Patchology.com


Age-related vision loss is par for the course for so many of us and really takes getting used to! While I have numerous readers spread throughout my home, bag, office, and car, I always revert to this elegant magnifying glass when I need to really read the fine print.

As a mom of both a teenager and a young adult, I tend to hold onto so many memories by hoarding every single card and piece of art they ever created. I’ve recently learned to reign it in and display what has the most personal impact, store others that I think they’ll want to keep for themselves one day, and take pictures and dispose of the rest. This little marker drawing my son did when he was little always warms my heart. He and his sister holding hands...a time of innocence and unconditional love for each other without the banter and saltiness the teenage years tend to bring on.
