I've been traveling a lot this summer for work and play, and these packing cubes have saved me. I have 3 sizes, and every trip I go on I can fit everything I need into these 3. They take up very little room in my suitcase, and they keep me organized during my trip so that I don't wind up with a mix of clean, dirty, folded and unfolded clothes thrown into my bag by the end of the trip. They make my least favorite chore - packing and packing - a breeze.
The packaging is gorgeous, naturally, but I was curious to see if the contents live up to the hype? The product is also marketed as a solution for an undone beach hair look, so I wanted to see how it would work on my wavy-bordering-on-curly hair. I'm happy to say I really loved the soft, touchable hold it gave. I like to start out with a super light styler on wash day as I typically add a little more styler every morning throughout the week when I refresh. I even applied it to my roots as directed, since it has SPF and I'm guilty of not protecting my scalp as well as I do my face. I'd definitely recommend it for wavies with fine to medium hair who like light hold products with absolutely no crunch. If you're into scents, this one is botanical and fresh, not too sweet or loud.
I just discovered this YouTube channel and she has already changed the way I think about getting dressed in the morning. She calls it "playing dress up" and every morning she chooses a character that she wants to take on. You can tell she has a lot of fun getting dressed, and she's inspired me to get more joy out of that part of my morning routine. She also wears almost exclusively thrifted clothing and accessories, which suits my second-hand shopping challenge really well. I blogged more about B Jones and my challenge on my blog here.
