Disney just announced a new Annual Passport (AP) option — the Disney Flex Passport. This AP will be available on May 21, 2019, but is it the right option for you?

Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Review

This post may contain affiliate links; all opinions are my own.

Sunscreen is super important to me; it’s rare that I leave my house without wearing any. In fact, aside from a vacation to the beach, I try to avoid the sun at all costs. That may sound extreme, but I’ve spent my fair share of time in the sun growing up, and I want to protect my skin the best I can now.

My go-to sunscreen for years has been the Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer which is amazing and has SPF 47. I have really enjoyed all of the Tatcha products that I’ve tried so when I heard about the Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen, I wanted to give it a try.

It was time for something new so I purchased the new NARS Ignited eyeshadow palette.

I saw that Casetify had released this new sequin phone case and it looked super cute. I ordered my case and it arrived 3 weeks later (I did order two other cases at the same time). Usually it doesn’t take that long for my order to arrive, but these sequin cases are hand-sewn so I guess the processing time is longer. Here’s my review of the Casetify Hidden Message Sequin phone case:
