I do most of my reading on my Kindle. The device is perfect for two things: reading books you don't necessarily want to hang on to (Royal We, Sookie Stackhouse series..) and reading enormous tomes. I've read and reread the Lord of the Rings trilogy a few times since I've had my Kindle, nerd that I am.
There are a few genres that I insist on buying in physical form. Poetry, always, and all manner of art and design books.
The Very Best Semi-Flats
I bought a pair of Repetto pumps in Paris and I will never look back. Versatile, comfortable, and chic. Do note: they were about $100 less in France, even with conversion rates.
Potions & Lotions
After a few run-ins with big, honking cystic lesions and zero progress with Sephora-enabled skincare self medication, I got a dermatologist. I'm on prescription cream now, but she also recommended CeraVe products for cleansing and moisturizing.
I like the moisturizer, but I LOVE the cleanser. It removes most makeup, even raccoon eyes, and never dries out my skin.
Another magical cleanser is Ren Cleansing Balm. It's a bit of a production: applying the balm, adding water as you massage the balm, removing the balm with the provided cloth. I don't use it every day, but it's a treat when you feel particularly grimy, and it removes every last stitch of makeup.
Rosewater Mist, how I love thee. Half of me thinks these mists are bullshit, and the other half doesn't care, loves the absurdity of spraying my face with scented water. I can make zero claims about this product, other than it feels good. 😎
There was a point in my skin self medication phase where I believed my salvation came in the form of as many acids as I can apply to my face as possible. I found this Ren lactic acid mask during my fervor and stuck with it. It's awesome for occasional dry patches.
