Things I Bought & Liked (July 2020)

One of the things that kiiiiilllllssss me about influencers is that they’re always pushing products on you - many of which they’ve gotten for free or haven’t even tried at all.

And because it’s 2020 and cauliflower can literally be anything, it isn’t as hard as you’d think to swap out your favorite indulgences for healthier alternatives.
