Happy Sunday. Sorry for the delay on getting CRL live this week. It’s been a crazy few days but really excited to share all the projects I’ve been working on very soon. Some exciting launches with ABLE and Follain and of course my Newport Guide! Hope all of you had a great weekend.

News to know about. Texas is offering a $10,000 bounty on anyone who provides abortions or abortion related support after six weeks.
I got a lot of questions about the letter necklace I was wearing this week. It’s actually going to be a part of my capsule launching in the fall but it’s currently available on ABLE’s website. Use code JESS20 for 20% off.

These almond brown butter cakes only look super fancy, they’re actually so easy to make.
Do you have plans to view the Perseid Meteor Shower in August?
Did you see this makeup video I shared? I am in LOVE with the Saie Glowy Super Gel in Sunglow (it’s the perfect combination of glowy and dewy with a little bit of sunkissed tint for summer). I mix it with my tinted moisturizer or sunscreen. Also right now buy two shades of slip tint get one free. I wear shade three. (J)
Local, RI residents.
If you haven’t been to Bayberry Garden, get there! The atmosphere is idyllic and the food is sublime. If you’re a veggie lover, they get an A++ in creative veggie preparation.
Major props to Glamour’s first Community College Women of the Year. Katherine Haley is a local woman with an absolutely incredible and inspiring story. She’s headed to Brown in the fall.
This organic cotton sports bra from Pact is SO comfortable and soft. I’m going to try some other bras from the brand and I’ll let you know what I think. (J)
A great read about using filler words, and the expectation for women to be more “ladylike” when expressing ourselves.
Craig will not stop talking about this sustainable sneaker brand he discovered Cariuma. I think it’s popular with skaters and BMX riders but he’s now purchased two pairs (and he is SO picky). He said they’re really comfortable and great quality.

An interesting piece on what makes a cult a cult and the blurry line between reality and delusion.
