Here are this week’s Friday Faves! Enjoy.
The Sill’s Instagram Page
I first stumbled upon The Sill while reading Apartment Therapy. The two partnered for an article helping plant lovers choose the best plants for urban settings with low light. After more exploration, I learned that The Sill was founded on this premise. Since we spend most of our time indoors, founder Eliza Blank saw it necessary to fill our spaces with greenery, increasing our quality of life. I am a plant lover (sometimes killer), and I find their blog to be a great resource for tips on plant parenting. The Sill’s Instagram page is perfect for all your plant inspo needs, giving us a daily dose of chlorophyll in an aesthetically pleasing way. Their website has plants for purchase, but I can’t wait to shop their store in New York City on my next visit. Hopefully, I can make it through security with my new plant babies.
The Read Podcast
Kid Fury and Crissle dish out seriously funny commentary on pop culture’s current events weekly on their podcast The Read. Nobody is safe from their wrath unless of course, you are Queen Bey. I love that they are both queer persons of color and their world view leaves me in stitches every time. You can listen on iTunes and SoundCloud. Check out their latest show below.
NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer
NYX Gotcha Covered concealer has made my makeup routine effortless. It’s super thick and provides great coverage when paired with a damp beauty blender and some setting powder. It comes in 20 shades, so I am positive that you can find the one that is right for you. I struggle to find foundation and concealer that matches my red undertones, but this one is my EXACT shade. I won’t ever buy another and it’s only 6 bucks! Get you some here.
Aptoyu Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser
You will never take me away from my essential oils! I used to burn them in the old fashioned oil diffuser where you put the tea candle under the ceramic lid. (Hopefully, you know what I’m talking about. lol) Then I found this Aptoyu diffuser and it changed the game. The thing I love most about it is the option to release the steam every 30 seconds instead of continuously. This option keeps the diffuser running for 6+ hours without having to refill with water. It also changes colors and you can stop it on any that you choose. I love the pink shade. 🙂
Love and Light Tarot
I’m always talking about my mystic ladies in my posts, and Lady E is one of them. Her monthly zodiac tarot readings are scarily accurate and provide great guidance for weaving through life. When I first discovered her, I was skeptical. But after watching my first reading in hindsight, I was shook by how true it was. I couldn’t wait until the next month’s video was posted so that I could see what she had to say. Now I can’t even plan my month ahead without hearing her advice. I’ve gotten all my friends hooked on her readings. They do not disappoint. You can find her videos on her youtube channel. Visit her website and support this queen. She is the truth!
