Loving This Week: Magic Toothpaste + Minimalist Sneakers

Monday, May 27, 2019 • Permalink • 

Franco Sarto Sandals - COS Jeans - Herbivore Face Oil - Apagard Toothpaste - Veja Sneakers

Check out a few of my favorite online shopping finds for the week…

1. Sarto by Franco Sarto Gannon Slingback Buckle Sandal, $79.95
The oversized square buckles give these black leather sandals a vaguely Marni-esque vibe. Except at literally 1/10 of the price.

2. COS Slim Leg Jeans, $115.00
The slim, cropped fit is the on-trend look for summer and you’ll be sure to get the perfect abbreviated fit as these jeans are available in 28 and 30 lengths. Bonus: this washed black rinse is still pretty unique amongst the more affordable denim labels.

3. Herbivore Emerald Hemp Seed Deep Moisture Glow Oil, $48.00
I’ve been very happy with Eve Lom facial oil for the past few months, but my bottle is nearly empty and I’m itching to try something new. This blend of hemp seed oil, squalene, and meadowfoam seed oil is antioxidant and amino acid-rich to boost glow and nourish the skin. With 227 reviews and nearly perfect 5-star rating, this oil is worth a try.

4. Apagard Premio Toothpaste, $16.24
Ok, so maybe “magic” is taking it a bit far. But, this toothpaste is completely unlike anything else I’ve ever used. It delivers results you can see. After hearing a few different Japan-based expats rave about this re-mineralizing toothpaste, I gave it a try. It really does what all the fans say it does. I’ve been using it about six weeks and the translucent edges have nearly vanished from my teeth and all my teeth are noticeably whiter. Fair warning: it’s a Japanese product and all of the instructions are written in Japanese, but nothing a run through Google Translate can’t take care of.

5. Veja V-10 Leather Low-Top Sneakers, $150.00
Why pay $150 for simple white leather sneakers? Aside from the stylish minimalist look that really is hard to find in a sneaker these days, Veja is a brand you can feel good about supporting. The French label is committed to ecologically responsible, fair trade practices that support local small businesses in Brazil and France. They are completely transparent about their sourcing and offer a fabulous range of vintage-inspired sneakers with both leather and vegan options. Shiny, happy shopping feels.
