I bought mine for 8 bucks at the grocery store. I am a proud zoodler. If you want to be a terrible human being, drop your zoodles in boiling salted water for 30 seconds and then top with sauce (picture on right). If you want to be a happy person, drop zoodles into the already boiling real noodles for their last 30 seconds, top with lots of parm.
Simple Micellar Water:
If there was one thing I could force every human to buy, it would be this stuff. Even if you don’t wear makeup, you need this because nothing is more satisfying than wiping off your morning eye crud with this stuff on a cotton pad. I have the most irritated dry eyes in the history of the world, and this stuff (even more than eye drops) keeps them feeling good. It is also great for washing your face when you can’t deal with splashing water on yourself, and it is the most effective eye makeup remover I have ever used. It is mostly glycerin, so even if you just wipe your face with it in the morning you are getting the first level of hydration.
I take more baths than showers (because standing feels overwhelming sometimes). My primary problem with most bath products is that they dry out my skin and leave my tub dangerously dirty and slippy. This for some reason does not scuz up the bath and leaves your skin moisturized. It also has eucalyptus, which is my favorite smell.
BareMinerals Mineral Foundation (matte/fair):
The only makeup that looks better throughout the day. Pro tip: don’t buff it into your skin. Stamp it into your skin with the Sephora mineral brush.
Elf Brushes (the black ones):
These brushes cost $3 at Target and they are as good as any expensive synthetic brush. Get them all, and in multiples in case you don’t wash your brushes often enough.
I can’t afford this. But boy does it work.
They require breaking in/professional stretching in the toe bed, but that’s the price you pay for flattering pointy toes.
A black hole of a work bag. I love that it is plastic (it is easy to wipe off). I really really want a Lo & Sons bag, but until I can justify buying a $300 work bag, this is a great option.
