Holbox Photo Diary + Recommendations.

If you follow along on Instagram, then you will know that two of my girlfriends and I took a little vacation to Isla Holbox at the beginning of the month. Holbox (pronounced “Ole-bosh”) is a tiny island about 40 miles northwest of Cancun. It’s absolutely beautiful and totally off the …

I really, really love how these photos turned out. It was really windy so at first, I was like “SHIT,”...

This is the most luxurious body oil I’ve ever tried. I am really, really into this brand right now – all of their products are heavenly but this is especially luxe.


I love everything Rixo makes but this dress is a favorite because of the vibrant print! It’s so pretty and so easy to just throw on and look polished.

I laugh a little at the name of this lip duo (sex machine) as this is actually my favorite everyday lip duo. The perfect natural, rosy pink. LOVE.

My ice roller is life. I did a thorough review of it here, but man – it’s the best $17 I’ve spent in ages. Leaves skin instantly more lifted + tight.

  • HEYYYY FAKE FRIENDS, COME BE OUR REAL FRIENDS!!! @beccamfreeman and I are going on TOUR! (Said in my most obnoxious voice ever.) It's a mini tour... but guys - we're going on TOUR! 😆 We are both so, so unbelievably excited to announce the first round of what is hopefully many many more @badonpaperpodcast live shows!! Come hang out with us for a night of book + friendship talk, games, (and probably tequila shots).

  • Tonight’s plan is to curl up with a good book and a nice cold glass of Rosé. @Prophecywines is becoming my go-to wine. I love that they have so many different styles of wine from around the world… Rosé tastes crisp, fresh, and bright! It’s perfect wherever you take it, even if that means (in tonight’s case) just staying in! #sponsored #prophecywines
JK - moving slowly as ever BUT this look is on the blog today and this outfit is a definite favorite! ❤️✨ (📸: @carterfish)
  • While in LA for the #SephoraSquad launch event, I decided to make you a highly professional and very complicated video with how I did my makeup for the party. I am admittedly not great at makeup but have learned a few things over the years from having it done professionally (and have found some great products that are hard to mess up)! All products are linked here: https://thestripe.com/big-night-makeup-for-idiots/
  • when one of your fav drink spots starts serving brunch!!!! ✨🙌🏼❤️✨Thanks for having us in @beaubklyn - everything was amazing - especially the breakfast udon, tamago crispy rice, and THAT BACON. See more on stories! (PS I save all my fav food stuff to highlights so if my story expires you can see it there.) 📸 by the inimitable @adick206
  • Blogger, podcaster... COOKBOOK MODEL? It's TRUE. Me and @calebthill and @dan_churchill snapped these photos for @tastingtable's cookbook almost three years ago and it's finally here! It's called Cooking With Friends and it's all about fun, easy, lighthearted entertaining. I am so excited to finally have my own copy... AND TO BE A STAR! I put a link to the cookbook in my Amazon shop (link in bio) and you should GO BUY IT.  And if you have a cookbook and want a model, I'll do it. For free! I'm like, really good at this. Swipe for a better (slightly terrifying) look at my modeling skills. Also this makes me miss having long hair. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • To me, the best part of working with a stylist is having someone show you something you'd never choose for yourself! Case in point: my recent visit to the @mmlafleur showroom on 42nd street in Bryant Park! If you saw my stories a few weeks back, you probably remember all the cute outfits I tried on. My consultant Ismelka pulled four looks for me and (on the hanger), this one was actually my least favorite. But once I tried it on, I was OBSESSED. These culottes are so comfy but still professional; and they pair so well with this silk blouse. New favorite meetings outfit. #ad (📸: @carterfish)
