In Love With Amala Beauty (Plus, Enter to Win Amala on Facebook and Instagram!)

In Love With Amala Beauty (Plus, Enter to Win Amala on Facebook and Instagram!)

It’s rare that I’m wowed by a beauty brand. It’s even rarer when I spend my own money on products from that brand. (I mean, have you seen my beauty closet? Are you familiar with how many products cross my desk every month? So many. So very, very many.)

I have an entire shelf solely devoted to expensive, well-reviewed moisturizers from brands like La Prairie, Shiseido, Restorsea, Orlane, and Chanel. Yet, I recently dropped $116 of cold hard cash on Amala Advanced Brightening Emulsion, which I discovered last year and which my finicky, acne-prone, ruddy skin simply ADORES.

If that’s not an endorsement of how much I love Amala and believe in the efficacy of their products, I don’t know what is.

Here they are on the cover of Vanity Fair with Prince George: his first cover appearance, but surely not his last. From the Vanity Fair article by Katie Nicholl, we learn that Prince George was a colicky baby who cried a lot and didn’t sleep through the night (so, a baby, then?), was breastfed by Kate, and might be getting a sibling next year after Will ‘n Kate give it another go this summer.

Ashley Ashoff James Goldstein Crocodile Dandy T-Shirt

Ashley Ashoff James Goldstein Crocodile Dandy T-Shirt

While procrastinating from writing–whoops, I mean, working extremely hard on my next book–I came across this article on Refinery29 identifying James Goldstein: the “mysterious cowboy at all those fashion shows.” Now, it is VERY rare that I’m in-the-know when it comes to fashion, but while reading this piece, for once in my blooming life I felt cool.
