The NEW Long Agolde Parker Shorts



The NEW Long Agolde Parker Shorts


Where my curvy ladies at? Did you suffer from aggressive thigh chaffing and wedgies every time you wear denim shorts?

If you answered yes, keep reading.

I solved all my denim shorts problems a couple of years ago when I wrote this post about the AGOLDE parker shorts, but flash forward to today and your girl needs a little extra length in her jorts.

With a worn-in vintage feel, the new long AGOLDE high-rise cut-offs are easy to pair with everything from graphic tees to a lightweight sweater. With a super flattering fit and new longer length, these are guaranteed to become your new summer staple.

I always size up in 100% cotton denim ANYTHING.

The $68 Day To Night Convertible Slip

Free People Slip Dress

nine colors | sizes xs-xl

I love this dress so much I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to it. It’s just one of those Free People bangers that I can’t stop wearing or chatting about. Easily transition from day to night in this sultry and slinky slip dress. I’ve worn this stunner everywhere from the beach in Maui to brunch in San Francisco. The adjustable adjustable ruched sides allow you to wear it long or short and it is truly a 10/10 piece in my closet.


Details: adjustable straps, cowl neckline + adjustable side ties <- for the perfect hem length


The slip dress is characterized by its minimalist appearance. Often done in one color, with spaghetti straps and a midi length, it was the must-have item in the 90s and everything from the 90s is back in full effect today!

The slip dress is also commonly done in a silky material.  The slip dress is popular to pair with more casual elements such as sneakers, a denim jacket, or shacket. It’s also popular to embrace the more nightgown appearance of the slip dress and work a pair of slippers with the dress. This slip dress is a great summer piece as it’s lightweight, easy to style, and relatively wrinkle-free, and easy to travel with.

January Beauty Favorites


1| Diptyque, Set of Candles

I always snag a set of Diptyque candles during the holidays and light them while I apply my skincare routine. I like to create spa vibes in my apartment (since we can’t go to the spa right now) and it really helps!

Diptyque’s mini candles are crafted in France and housed in glass vessels. Packaged in a neat presentation box, this set makes the perfect hostess gift.

*If you are looking for a VERY affordable home scent ->snag this SANTAL oil and put it in your diffuser! Thank me later 🙂


2| Biologique Recherche, Lotion P50

Allow me to introduce you to the stinky skincare line that has completely transformed my skin! It smells like shit, it is EXPENSIVE AF, and it works like a MF!

Lotion P50 Review

ALL the fancy beauty blogs told me that it erases dark spots, shrinks pores, and balances your complexion…so I logged into the Shop Rescue Spa website and ordered my first bottle of P50 about 6 months ago.

How Does it Work?

Industry experts and beauty enthusiasts alike have long been reaping the glow-boosting benefits of this chemical method of exfoliation! Compared to manual exfoliation (ie: scrubs), it is so much more gentle and effective as it is working from the inside to the outside of the skin, as opposed to just touching the surface.

6 Month Update

It still smells like shit and it has completely transformed my skin. I’m on my third bottle and I will use this product every morning and evening for the rest of my life. Brace yourself for stinky skincare for the rest of your life. My Lotion P50 Review is a 10/10. Once you buy it you will never look back!


3| Nécessaire, The Body Serum {sephora sale}

The daily hyaluronic acid treatment for skin health that you NEVER knew you needed. This serum has completely transformed my dry winter skin. If you are looking for hydrated/glowy skin -> this is your product.

full Nécessaire brand review here


4| Donna Karan, Cashmere Mist

The HYPE is real! I am fully addicted to this deodorant. The anti-perspirant stick checks all the boxes for me and tt is ALWAYS sold out, but I found a few here.

More on my love for pricey beauty products here.


5| Saint Jane, The C-Drops Brightening Elixir {sephora sale}

The C-Drops Brightening Elixir is a potent, clean brightening treatment for glowy skin. Formulated with 20% active glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C, ensuring maximum penetration to the skin’s deepest layers to power your glow and even skin tone, while 500mg full-spectrum CBD calms and soothes.

Ferulic Acid boosts Vitamin C + CBD absorption, while Kakadu Plum, Lemon, and Lime exfoliate for bright, radiant skin.


6| Saint Jane, Lip Shine {sephora sale}

Saint Jane’s Lip Shine is a silky gloss infused with 8 clean, antioxidant-rich ingredients. The high-shine formula glides on smooth with 50mg CBD and calming botanicals like Sunflower, Chamomile, and Aloe, delivering a wash of sheer, luminous color.


7| Herbivore, Emerald + CBD Glow Oil {sephora sale}

Herbivore Botanicals Emerald + CBD Glow Oil is a soothing blend of 100mg Full-Spectrum Organic CBD, Hemp Seed Oil, and adaptogens to visibly calm the look of redness, protect against environmental stressors, and nourish skin with lasting hydration.


Tanning Drops

The Isle of Paradise drops give you COMPLETE control of your glow. Use as part of your existing regime, adding these magical multitasking drops to transform your moisturizer into a custom self-tanner. The more you drop, the more you glow!

(the vitamin C, avocado oil, eucalyptus oil, and coconut oil in the drops are also great for your skin)

How I use it: Add 1 to 2 drops to your favorite moisturizer, mix together, and apply to the skin.

More drops = deeper tan!

Wash hands after application.



Masks

At $0.80 a set the Pixi DetoxifEYE masks are ALWAYS in my fridge <- NOT just in January

(buy these eye masks if you need to instantly de-puff before a zoom call)

and

the variety pack from Loops Beauty fulfilled all my dry skin needs!



Stay AWAY from Away Luggage – Away Luggage Review


KatWalkSF carrying the The Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition, AWAY Luggage Review


Away Luggage Review


I’ve shared a couple of quick Away luggage reviews on my Instagram stories over the past couple of months, but I finally had the time to give you the proper Away luggage review that you deserve and need.

It all started on September 9, 2020.

AWAY launched their first-ever online sale and I snagged an Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition for 50% off! I was oh-so excited because I had a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the books and I was ready to take my shiny gold suitcase for a spin.

Flash forward to October 1, 2020. I extended my time in Jackson Hole (because Jackson Hole is amazing) but it was time to return home to San Francisco. There are very few direct flights from Jackson Hole to San Francisco, so I had to connect at O’Hare to get home. The flight from Jackson Hole to Chicago was short and sweet. I popped out of my seat in my new suede fringe jacket that I scored in Jackson Hole to find that my new Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition had BUSTED open in the overhead bin like an overstuffed burrito! This is where the Away Luggage Review gets good…My personal belongings were popping out of the overhead bin and I started to sweat and immediately regret wearing the suede fringe jacket.

Now I want you to close your eyes and picture me walking through O’Hare wearing a suede fringe jacket and holding my BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition like a baby across one of the world’s largest airports. That’s right my friends I was cradling that bag between terminals and doing my best to not lose any of my personal belongings.

I finally made it to my new gate with enough time to slam a glass of sauvy b and write to Away about my BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition PROBLEMS.

I share my busted carry-on story with Away and this is what I get back ->


Hi there,

Thanks so much for getting in touch. For the past few weeks, we’ve been overwhelmed with gratitude by the response to our sale. Because of this, it will take up to 14 business days for us to get back to you. We know this isn’t fast enough and we’re doing everything we can to speed up the response time.


Needless to say the up to 14 business days wait for a response wasn’t going to work for me. I was FIRED up and sitting at a Maggiano’s drinking white wine out of a plastic cup. I needed a response and I needed it now…

So I went to the Twitter (something I usually try to avoid) and got the immediate response that I wanted. They were very apologetic and offered to send me a FREE shipping label to exchange the bag.

Trust and believe when I tell you that I did NOT want to exchange the bag. The BUSTED dual locks on the side of the Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition have a SERIOUS design flaw and this was not the bag for me. I am an avid traveler and this bag was made for the gram NOT the overhead bin! The team behind the Away stayed strong and only offered me an exchange. They did however make an exception and allowed me to exchange the bag at the San Francisco store due to the fact that I was only home for two days and then heading to Utah.

So I exchange the BUSTED Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition for a new Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition and head to Utah.

Did it BUST again?

YES

I’ll save you the story (you get the picture by now).

I return home to San Francisco and after nearly a hundred DMs and emails, Away lets me keep the 2nd busted Away Bigger Carry-On: Aluminum Edition (why?) and decides to send me the Expandable Bigger Carry-On pictured below.

The Expandable Bigger Carry-On is fine, but honestly, nothing to write home about. I prefer my trusty 3 Piece Expandable Hardside Spinner Luggage Set that has never let me down and won’t bust open mid-flight. Away really let me down and I can honestly say that every time I look at my Away bag I flashback to me cradling that bag across O’Hare and I immediately get fired up!

Stay away, my friends. Stay away!


AWAY Luggage Review, The Expandable Carry-On, The Everywhere Bag


the one item from Away that you don’t need to stay away from is the

The Everywhere Bag

This water-resistant nylon travel bag is made to keep you organized. With thoughtful compartments, including a 15″ laptop pocket, a zippered waterproof umbrella pocket, and a roomy interior, it can fit anything from an extra pair of clothes to in-flight essentials. It’s designed with a trolley sleeve that perfectly secures to any suitcase and fits overhead or under the seat in front of you.

Why I love the Everywhere Bag ->
  • It is easy to clean! The water-resistant nylon looks good as new after one Clorox wipe.
  • THE ORGANIZATION SYSTEM – I am not an organized traveler, but this bag has seriously helped me get my shit together thanks to the six interior pockets and the padded laptop sleeve (fits my MacBook Pro), the exterior pocket is perfect for quick phone access + your passport.
  • A trolley sleeve on a travel bag is a MUST. It secures the Everywhere Bag to any suitcase <- your bags will NEVER topple over again.
  • Meets the airline requirement as a personal item

Sneakers are a universal pair of footwear that just works no matter your style or age. But if you’re on the lookout for more current and fresher ways to wear them on your day-to-day hustle and bustle (like me), it’d be wise to peep how the younger generation is doing it.

Well I peeped and at the ripe old age of 34 I don’t think that you are going to find me in Air Force 1 sneakers, but you will find me in my Palestra Alta Platform Sneakers from Italian shoe company M. Gemi. These sneakers are super comfy and ideal for all-day wear. I wore them all over Mexico (without socks) and never saw even a hint of a blister. They’re lightweight, have no-squeak rubber bottoms, and leather that uniquely molds to your foot.

The Palestra Alta—features everything I love about the low-profile version of their famous Palestra Sneaker (sleek, minimal design and less-is-more details), with added height and a raised platform sole for a punch of trending street-style to keep the Gen Z fashionistas happy.

These sneakers have a uniquely cushy, leather insole, there’s no break-in period required—ever.
