Clean Friday Sale Roundup!

Hello! It’s the most wonderful time of the year – HOLIDAY SALES!

I have been looking forward to this sale for quite a while now and am so excited to share the details. Beautycounter is offering 15% off sitewide with free shipping on orders over $50. Some items are excluded from the sale (regimens, collections, flawless in five), but the holiday sets and the NEW Countertime line is included!

I’ve rounded up my five favorite products to purchase at the sale –

Counter+ Skin Care Favorites


This is my favorite way to try the top products in clean skincare. It includes four travel size products that are great for all skin types. First is the Lotus Glow Cleansing Stick – it is the new version of our top selling Cleansing Balm and it comes in a stick. When it meets water it turns into a creamy makeup remover, but it doesn’t strip away the good oils on our skin. Also included is our Overnight Resurfacing Peel, #1 Brightening Oil, and the Balancing Charcoal Mask. With the 15% off this set becomes $75!

Body Butter Trio + Hand Cream Trio


These two sets are great gifts – I usually like to gift a hand cream and a body butter in a cute little gift bag for teachers, friends, or mother in laws. Each set comes with three in different scents. The best part is that these are clean products safe for all. No need to worry about any toxic chemicals in your lotions.

Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion


Our top selling moisturizer has to be on this list! It’s one of the founder, Gregg Renfrew’s, favorite products. The Countermatch line is great for anyone with sensitive, combination skin. It adapts to your skins needs at the time of application and feels lightweight all day. With the sale this moisturizer is $42 and a tube should last around 3 months! When clients are looking to make the switch to safer – this is the first product I recommend. It’s EWG Verified as well!

Counterman Carry-On


We can’t forget about the men in our lives! They deserve clean, safe skincare too! This set comes with four of the products from the Counterman line in travel size. Jake has all four in his travel bag for his overnight trips and loves them. This set comes with the purifying shampoo, energizing charcoal body wash, oil free face lotion, and the daily exfoliating cleanser.

Mini Lip Gloss Vault


This set is the best value! You get ten mini lip glosses for $75. When I get sets like this I like to break them up and gift individually. This is such a sweet gift for teachers, babysitters, friends. I’m planning to gift a lip gloss and Starbucks gift card to each of Everly’s teachers this year! Nine of the ten colors are brand new to Beautycounter — hoping that they keep amber shimmer around because that’s my favorite!


The other great way to save this time of year is to sign up for the Band of Beauty rewards program for $29 – it gives you lots of great perks with no order requirements, autoship, auto renew, etc. – you earn 10% product credit on every order, free shipping on orders $100+ and you get the Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa (as a free gift) if your product total is $50+ when you join.

I hope this round up was helpful! Happy Shopping!



Holiday Outfit Planning with LIT Boutique Part Two

Good Morning! Last week I showed the first outfit from LIT Boutique in the North End. Today I’m sharing another fabulous look that they styled me with perfect for an upcoming holiday event. TBH, I was a little hesitant to pull a look this bold off, but it was awesome. The key to any outfit is feeling comfortable and these pants are exactly that.

Pants: Greylin Sequin // Blazer Top: Carbon Leather Black Blazer // Clutch: Electra Metallic Silver // Earrings: Quinn Large Hoops // Heels: Lima Suede Sandal Black

These pants have a zipper enclosure and were true to size. They hit right under the ankle which is perfect to wear with a strappy heel. They also have pockets – win!



The blazer runs true to size and can be worn with a bodysuit underneath and buttons undone. We kept it buttoned and wore it as a “top”. It has plenty of structure, but is also soft enough to wear all day.




The clutch is so versatile and has a removable silver strap – it also comes in a few colors!





This outfit would be great for a holiday party, but could also be multi-functional. I absolutely love how bold it is for a special occasion. As I mentioned before LIT Boutique has the best staff available for styling – they are informative without being pushy and they really know their stuff!



Gifting Ideas: Husband’s

I put up a question box on Instagram and asked “Who is the hardest person to shop for?”

The number one answer from my followers was husbands and dads! I can totally relate – Jake has everything and he never asks for anything! With his help, I came up with a men’s gift guide. Perfect for any man in your life – interested in sports, tech, lounging, etc.

Glion Dolly Scooter – this is Jake’s way to get to and from work every day! It was his Father’s Day gift and he loves it. It would be perfect for someone to use for short errands, a commute or just riding around the neighborhood. This model goes 15mph for 15 miles on one single charge! It weighs 28 pounds and has a handle to travel easy when you’re walking through crowded areas.

Lululemon City Sweat Pants – Jake has these in two different colors and loves the softness and look. He wears these to lounge around the house on the weekends when playing with E. I am a huge fan of Lululemon and love their Align leggings. You can’t really go wrong with anything from this store as a gift.

Patagonia Fleece Pullover – This pullover is perfect for cooler temps in Boston. Jake got this as a gift for Christmas last year and it’s held up so well. Patagonia is also a B Corp and practices sustainable business practices which is so cool!

Bose Home Speaker 300 with Alexa – We have an older version of this speaker, but I’ve had my eye on this new one! It has Amazon Alexa built in and 360 sound. Bose has incredible customer service as well – we’ve never had any issues with any of their products. AND they are based in Framingham, MA.

Honest Beef – I am a huge fan of this Nebraska based company. It is run by one of my Boston mom friends who recently moved back to NE. I have ordered from them lots of times and I love sending their packs to my dad for Father’s Day or Christmas. This is the perfect gift for someone when you have no idea what to get them. They are a sustainable, family owned ranch with the highest quality cuts and the best customer service. The Ribeye Share is my favorite!

Beautycounter Counterman Carry-On – Couldn’t make a men’s gift guide without including the Counterman collection. This gift set includes four travel size products from the Counterman line. The products are the purifying shampoo, the charcoal body wash, the exfoliating cleanser, and the oil-free moisturizer. Perfect for any guy that travels a lot for work!

Apple Airpods Pro – These are a brand new release from Apple. They include wireless charging and free engraving. They also sell a carrying case that can easily clip into a laptop bag or backpack.

UGG Ascot Slipper – Thank you Tom Brady for making Ugg’s cool for men haha! Another perfect gift for your guy that likes to lounge! These make a great gift for Father’s or Father-in-laws too!

Belkin Wireless Charging Pad – I’ve been searching for a new wireless charging pad for my iPhone and Apple Watch and this one has REALLY good reviews. There are so many different brand that make these, but this one has a two year warranty. It can charge a phone from 0 to 80% in 35 minutes!

Hope you guys enjoy these options for the men in your life! If you have any recommendations, leave them below in the comments!

It’s time to get gifting! The holidays will be here before you know it. I’ve put together eight items that any mom would love to receive.

The first gift is a silk pillowcase – I’ve tried other brands off of amazon and this is by far the best one. It keeps your skin from wrinkling and your hair neat while sleeping.

Number 2 – the best booties! They are so comfortable and easy to dress up or down. Every time I wear them I get so many compliments.

The third on the list is the Counter+ Skincare Favorites Set. This set was a favorite of mine last year and it’s quickly becoming a top seller. It’s still in stock for now, so don’t miss out on this one!

If I’m not curling my hair with my straightening iron – this T3 curling iron is my go to. It it so easy to use and gives the perfect beach wave curl that I’m always going for.

#5, This might only be for my mama’s in cold weather temps but it is GOOD! The coat runs true to size and for the price it is SOO warm. I ordered the beige color and have been loving it. Temps are dropping very quickly in Boston as of late!

The sixth on the list is the Lemongrass Body Set. The scrub has been one of my go-to’s in the shower for a while now. Having the body butter in the set has been sooo nice. The scent is perfect and it feels so luxurious.

Number 7 is a weighted blanket that I’ve had my eyes on for a while! Weighted blankets are used to reduce anxiety, calm and relax. Sign me up! The color is beautiful and I’m excited to try one to see if it lives up to the hype.

For the last and final item on the gift guide I chose a new pair of headphones. These were actually sent to me on accident, but they are so good! If you’re looking for something better than AirPods these are the ones. Put in the ears and tune out the toddler whining hahah!

Hope you enjoyed this gift guide! I’ll have a bunch more coming in the next few weeks. Happy Shopping!
