Btw, if you missed the last Volume 3 from spring, you can check it out here!

360 Stainless Steel Cookware (1)

Nothing says adulting like buying new cookware, amiright? 🥘 I use a combo of different types of non-toxic cookware in my kitchen depending on what I’m making. One of them is stainless steel, BUT, it’s important to note that not all stainless steel cookware is created equal.

I discovered this brand 360 which is actually made here in Wisconsin (West Bend)! They use surgical-grade, non-leaching 18/8 stainless steel. You can use it in the oven up to 500℉ and pop it in the dishwasher to clean. The company also adheres to a lot of green manufacturing protocols. Very high-quality stuff and most of their materials are sourced from within the US!

360 Stainless Steel Stock Pot

I mostly like that it’s not as heavy as the other cookware I use (cast iron and ceramic) and not as fragile. And, 360 has a lifetime warranty on their cookware!

I have a couple of their items: 11.5-inch Fry Pan, 6-Quart Slow Cooker Set, and Jelly Roll Pan. Extremely happy with all of them! You can read my separate review of 360 Cookware in this post.

Beauty by Earth SPF30 Body Spray (2)

I’ve been testing SO MANY body sunscreens this spring/summer 🧴 and this has been a standout for me! It comes in multiple scents: Unscented, Vanilla Coconut, Vanilla Mint, and Peppermint Geranium. I got the Vanilla Coconut and it’s to die for!

I would consider this more of a spritz vs. a spray. So be careful when spraying it because it might splatter a bit. I tend to spritz some into my hand first then rub it onto my body. However, I do appreciate that it’s NOT an aerosolized spray because it can be dangerous to inhale sunscreens, even the mineral ones. It has a lockable nozzle so you can take it on the go.

The formula is quite thin and runny, but it blends in fairly easily and I don’t notice a white cast! It’s more on the oily side so it feels moisturizing and silky, instead of a chalky/thick sunscreen. I’ve really been enjoying this one!

Beauty by Earth & Erin's Faces Mineral Sunscreens

Erin’s Faces Peptide SPF30 Face Sunscreen (3)

An SPF30 sunscreen for your face that’s also very moisturizing! It goes on so silky smooth and I was honestly shocked at how well it blends in – no white cast! I can even layer it without pilling or pastiness. It sits nicely underneath makeup too; I just like to wait a few minutes after applying it before I put on my makeup.

This one is vegan, reef safe, and uses non-nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the active sunscreen ingredients. Plus it has a fancy Matrixyl 3000 peptide that improves sun damage, builds collagen, and addresses fine lines. This is definitely like a combo of sunscreen and skin care in one!

Oh, and there is not much of a smell to it. So, my husband even approves and uses this! So good.

Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo (4)

Lovesong launched some new products a few months ago and I was lucky enough to try them! The Evergreen Shampoo has been working so well for me and my thickkkkkkk hair. It’s vegan, cruelty free, color safe, non-GMO, uses a lot of certified organic ingredients, is bottled in aluminum, and is ideal for all hair types and textures.

Read the full review: “Lovesong Evergreen Shampoo & Body Lotion Review (Natural, Vegan, Non-GMO)

The scent is woodsy and energizing with botanical extracts of orange, lemon, lavender, balsam fir, ylang ylang, and eucalyptus. I use about 8-9 pumps and it leaves my hair feeling clean (but not stripped dry), soft, and hydrated. I really like it! I wish they offered smaller sample sizes so you could try without buying a full size, but I hope you trust my recommendation enough to give it a go!

Magic City Brightening Glow Elixir (5)

This is a facial oil created by my friend Kate who owns MADE. It has a super impressive ingredient deck (so pure and uses 14 plant-based oils!) and is formulated to restore hydration, even skin tone, reduce inflammation, and brighten dull skin (ideal for all skin types too).

MADE Magic City Brightening Elixir

It uses tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (5%) which is a gentler form of Vitamin C. I loveeeee using Vitamin C products in summer to keep pigmentation and sun spots at bay ✨

Not only that, but it’s a gorgeous bright green color and has a beautiful silky consistency. But it feels lightweight and absorbs into skin without feeling heavy which is perfect for the summer months. The smell is pleasant and not too powerful; a bit fruity with hints of blue tansy and jasmine! I’m truly obsessed.

Origo Barefoot Sneakers (6)

Shoes that are both good for your feet AND made with natural materials! I’ve been phasing out my older footwear and swapping for minimal barefoot-style shoes when it’s time to replace them 👟

At the basic level, modern shoes are rigid, heavy, don’t follow the primitive shape of our feet, and don’t allow feet to really sense the surface they’re walking on. They squish our toes and weaken feet over time.

I recently got two pairs of Origo sneakers and LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They have a wide toe cage, no heel drop, thin/flexible sole, and are flat. I have the black Cotton Canvas and blue Natural Leather styles. The soles are made from a biodegradable plant-based oat/corn starch biopolymer and thermoplastic rubber, and the laces are waxed cotton. And Origo maintains ethical working standards and a supply chain within North America.

They’re comfortable, cute, AND sustainably made. Win win win. I want to get a pair for my husband too!

Perfect Supplements Desiccated Liver Capsules (7)

Perfect Supplements Desiccated Liver Capsules

Mmm, liver capsules! Is your mouth watering yet? 😂 Liver is known as nature’s multivitamin because it’s jam-packed with Vitamins A, B12, D, E, K, iron, and folate. I try to consume organ meats in my diet, but these capsules are nice for in-between! They are JUST desiccated beef liver, and nothing else, so you’re still getting the whole food.

I like this brand because it’s grass-fed, pasture-raised, glyphosate residue-free, non-GMO, tested for heavy metals and histamines, and tested for microbial (yeast, mold, E. coli, etc.).

I’ve been taking these consistently for a few months now and honestly feel NOTICEABLY better! Like, more consistent energy and fewer PMS symptoms. I’ve been doing 3 capsules about 4-5x a week. Heads up though, they have a gross aftertaste so you might want to wash them down with some orange juice.

This is not intended to be medical advice, so check with your doc before taking any new supplements 🙂

Saie Airset Powder (8)

This setting powder is DEEEEEE-lightful! It comes in 3 shades and I wear Translucent for very light/light skin tones. It’s a loose powder with a touch of mica in it for a subtle glowy shimmer. I like that it diffuses excess shine and oil, but is not too matte or cakey; it has a very natural-looking finish!

Saie Airset Powder

It feels velvety yet weightless and I’ve been using it all summer long! I definitely recommend the Fluffy Brush for applying the powder; it’s an ideal size for getting in smaller areas like under your eyes. You can also use the brush to apply cream blushes. If you have oily or combo skin like me, this setting powder is a godsend in the humid, warm summer months!
