A collagen hair treatment, a panama hat like Meghan’s and an electronics organizer

From CB: You might remember the conversation cards we talked about last month. My friend had them and I’ve used them a few times since. I’ve purchased this other set by the same brand, Table Topics, called Do It Yourself Therapy and it’s coming tomorrow. It’s a little deeper than the standard set and includes questions like “what’s your nervous habit,” “who can drive you crazy in five minutes or less” and “which of your mother’s silly instructions do you still obey.” I’m looking forward to trying it out! They have similar sets like Happiness, Best Things Ever, Dinner Party and What Would You Do which would be excellent for keeping on hand for company and would make great gifts. Here are some more things Hecate and I are looking at on Amazon.

A panama hat, like Duchess Meghan wears, for stylish sun protection

From CB: I bought this super cute hat with the pink ribbon after seeing a thread on Twitter of Duchess Meghan in a panama hat with a black ribbon. She looked so stylish! This unisex fedora by Pineapple&Star arrived in a special box that protected it from being smooshed. It comes in sizes small, medium and large and in several different colors with different color ribbons. It’s priced from $35 to $50 and has an adjustable fit band inside the hat. This has 4.7 stars, almost 6,700 ratings and a B on Fakespot. Reviewers love it too. “The quality is extraordinary compared to other amazon brands I bought. Even though it is more expensive than others, I would definitely recommend it. It’s worth it. I like the design and detail.” “I bought this hat for a vacation to Florida and New Orleans. I absolutely love it!! I Had at least a half dozen strangers compliment me on my hat in the first 24 hours in New Orleans!”

An electronics organizer to neaten up your laptop bag

From CB: My laptop bag is currently a mess of chargers, headphones and cords. This travel electronics bag by Bagsmart has so many compartments and velcro straps to keep everything organized and easy to find. It has 4.6 stars, over 6,000 ratings and a B on Fakespot. People say that it’s just what they needed and they wish they had it sooner. “This is a great little bag if you’re in a hybrid environment (work/home) so you have what you need to work, wherever you go.” “I finally have a great organizer for all my cables and drives! No longer are they all tangled up in a bag. Really great for when I travel.”

Versatile rose earrings you’ll want to wear every day

From CB: I got these little rose earrings in black and silver over a year ago and they’re still my favorite earrings in rotation. They can be worn with dressy or casual looks. They’re easy to wear with masks and are so pretty. They come in black and white with gold or silver finishes, most under $13. You can get three sets for $18. These have 4.6 stars, over 6,500 ratings and a B on Fakespot. “I bought these earrings for myself. I absolutely LOVE them!! They are just the right size, not too small, not heavy, and not too big.” “I really like these earrings! It is hard to find some that have the post centered in the back and that are a perfect size. These are it for me!”

A light day cream with vitamin c and SPF 30

From CB: I was looking for a summer day cream that included sun protection. I ordered Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter this week and I like it so far. It smells nice and it hydrates without being heavy at all. It’s priced well at $13 for over two ounces and has over 3,000 ratings, 4.5 stars and a B on Fakespot. Many reviewers write that it’s safe for sensitive skin and helps face sun spots. “This product doesn’t leave the skin greasy, smells nice, helps with dark spot fading, feels fresh on the skin, and overall makes the skin even and lovely. Been using it for almost 10 years and it’s the product I always go back to.” “Omg! This sunscreen is amazing if you don’t like oily sunscreens. It’s not tacky like a serum either. It is a super light lotion and dries quickly and greaseless!”

A cleansing balm for double cleansing

From Hecate: This JUNO & Co Clean 10 Cleansing Balm is Amazon’s Choice for oil-based cleansers. It’s organic with only 10 ingredients including pearl barley that brightens skin. It also has Vitamin E for anti aging. It usually costs $20 for a 3.0 oz jar, but this week it’s $15. Clean 10 has over 7,900 reviews with 4.6 stars and an A on Fakespot. Customers said that even though it’s oil based, it doesn’t leave a residue, “Removed eye makeup really well without greasy feeling and didn’t irritate my skin or eyes.” Plus you don’t need much to clean your face, “I love the way this melts and spreads easily over my whole face, just a little goes a long way.” Almost everyone talked about how good it smells.

A portable lounger for comfort at the beach

From Hecate: Summer is approaching, at looong last. Our minds turn to sunshine, fruity drinks and, most of all, the beach! I’m loving this portable beach chair with an extendable mat and inflatable pillow. It folds up so you can carry it like a bag and it’s only four pounds so it’s not a PITA to lug out to your perfect beach spot. There’s also a zippered pouch where you can keep your keys, book, phone, etc. “It was super easy to fold up and carry and the blow up pillow was great too. The zipper pillow area could also be used to carry various small items.” If you aren’t a beach goer, it would work great for a park or poolside as well. Each chair is $35. This has 4.3 stars from almost 300 reviews and an A on Fakespot. The biggest drawback is you won’t want to get off it, “It is so comfortable i dont want to leave the beach.”

A collagen and protein treatment for silky hair

From Hecate: I’m an 80’s girl so I’m a sucker for a good leave-in hair treatment. I’ll put just about anything on my hair if the instructions say it has to stay for 20 minutes. So imagine how thrilled I was when I found this Elizavecca collagen hair protein treatment. It makes your hair shiny and healthy and it’s only $8. Teenage me is beside herself right now. This has 4.4 stars, over 30,000 reviews and a B on Fakespot. The treatment is very good for over-processed and sun-damaged hair, but it works on all types of hair. “I have 4C hair and was looking for a protein treatment for my thin and fragile. I was very skeptical about this product because I have never seen anyone with my hair type use it. Boy was I wrong to doubt this product, it left my hair looking and feeling beautiful.” And it’s not too heavy, either, “I have very fine, light blonde hair. I have been using this mask as a conditioner and LOVE it.”

    Question: do you have to click purchase immediately for you to get credit, or can it be left in my cart until payday?

    • SpankyB says:

      I think you can wait. Their name is in the link so as long as you used that link to put it into your cart it should be fine. I’m almost 100% sure of that. More like 99%.

  2. Liz Version 700 says:

    The hat is adorable I definitely want to try it. Also I think the cable cord organizer would solve a lot of problems for my husband and I when we travel!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      It would be ideal just to have. I have all of mine labeled in zip lock bags that had a purchased item in it with the name of the product labeled on front.

      I am going to check out that hair mask. I have 3C hair and I color it too. No amount of conditioner seems to cure my dryness.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Yeah, I want that hat, too. I’ve been looking for Meghan’s exact hat (Madewell x Biltmore), but it’s from some previous season & no longer available, so I’ve been looking for a good alternative. I’ll have to check this one out.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Yay! Back to say I ordered the hat with the pink band (really cute!) & will try out the Garnier day cream w/SPF30. I’ve never tried a Garnier product before, but I’m just about out of my SPF30 day cream (Boots No7), so this is good timing.

  3. Christine says:

    The conversations cards are my worst nightmare. If someone brought those out I would just leave lol

    • Fig says:

      Same lol

    • BeanieBean says:

      I do the same thing in zoom calls as soon as they say ‘we’re going to break out into rooms & get back together in 20 minutes’. Nope, I end call.

  4. BothSidesNow says:

    I loved those pictures of Cher and Sonny!!! It’s been such wild time for her and her clothing!!! I remember all of the gossip about her having ribs removed to be that thin 😝😝

  5. AC says:

    I have had an electronics organizer for six years. I travel with my job weekly and it comes in handy.

    I got the rose jewelry as part of my costume for Halloween in Salem last year and I really liked it. Affordable sturdy and quite pretty.
