Alba Botanica Sunscreen
I'm still on the hunt for a good mineral sunscreen that doesn't make me turn white as a ghost, but for now I'm really loving how this sunscreen smells and that it's free of a lot of gross ingredients! Maybe this is a Florida thing, but I have this on Subscribe and Save and get a fresh bottle each month. 

Believe it or not, I woke up to a clean kitchen. You can't tell that from the following photos, however, because I made a giant mess with a marathon of cooking and meal prepping! This morning I made air fryer bagels, cut up a watermelon, tried a new recipe for energy bites, and made a fresh batch of my laundry detergent. Needless to say, my kitchen was a wreck!

Looking on the bright side, it made for some pretty incredible before and after photos. Let's get to work!

Kitchen Cleaning Routine
Hi Friends and Happy Friday! Here are 5 things I want to tell you about:

One | Target Dress
I'm loving the tiered dress style! I picked this dress up on my last Target run. I might look a little frumpy, but I will totally get over it for how comfy this dress is! I can't find the exact dress to link, but Target has several similar styles right now. 

Mercair Versus Poshmark | Which resale platform is better? |

If you've been reading for any length of time, you know I have a passion for shopping used. I love the thrill of finding the perfect item for a fraction of the cost as new! Almost as much as I love that feeling, I also love making money from things we aren't using. Ebay has been really successful for me over the years, but I've also ventured into other apps/websites.

I mainly used Poshmark, but in the last few months Mercari also popped up on my radar. I was used to using Poshmark, and didn't really think that one app was better than the other. Then again, I wasn't really having huge success with Poshmark, so I decided to give Mercari a go. Spoiler alert-Mercari is now my preference. Let's talk about the differences and why I have a new favorite. (But, also why you might like Poshmark better!)

Because I'm really nosey, and I love to see what other people are buying-I thought maybe you guys are curious too. Grove Collaborative is something I talk about on the blog all the time, so you are probably already familiar with the company. In a nutshell, it's an online store for clean beauty and home items. It can be set up like a subscription and you can get all your favorites sent automatically. 

If you are a new to Grove you can get a free cleaning gift set with my link. (And don't forget to use Rakuten with your first purchase for cash back as well!)
Here's what I got:

ColorStreet Nails
My sister in law started selling ColorStreet Nail Strips, and she gave me a sample to try and it turned out so cute! It's a really easy process and it lasts a long time. Plus they are easy to remove. Perfect timing for not being able to get a manicure at a salon. I tried the color Tokyo Lights, and paired it with Essie's Bahama Mama.
You wouldn't believe how excited I was to write this post! It seems like while everyone has been stuck at home more, cleaning and cooking trends have gone viral. One of those viral cleaning hacks I've seen over and over again in the past few weeks is laundry stripping. I had never heard of laundry stripping before, but the before and after photos pulled me in right away!

How To: Laundry Stripping

Drugstore Beauty Faves |

I've been a It Cosmetics concealer person for years, but lately I noticed it was settling under my eyes in a very unattractive way. (It's perfect for blemishes though!) I wanted to try something thinner, and this was the perfect choice. I love the colorstay foundation, and have been equally happy with this concealer. I got the shade light medium. 
Clean With Me | Master Bathroom |

Is there anything more satisfying than a clean house? Yes. Watching other people clean their houses and you didn't have to do any of the work. 😂 I hoping to supply a little before and after satisfaction for you today!

We've been using Instacart for over a year now, and it has been a lifesaver! Especially in the last few weeks. Since we've been using it, most of our shoppers have been excellent. I can really only remember once or twice when we were brought the wrong thing. Lately, Instacart has hired a bunch of new shoppers, and in the last few weeks I can tell we've had some newbies shopping for us.
