Love, love Coco!! One of my faves but my ABSOLUTE favorite is Jo Malone Orange Blossom. Actually all JM perfumes are wonderful and you can mix and match and can’t go wrong – but Orange Blossom is my go to (and what Kate Middleton wears) 😉

Love that perfume! I wore it on my wedding day and on my honeymoon. I save it for dates or trips with my husband and it reminds us (yes! He remembers it!) of our wedding and honeymoon!

I love your lip color! Can you tell us what it is?!

Lindsay says · 03.08.17

I second this request! 🙂 It looks spectacular on you, and unusual compared to the pinks and nudes you often wear (which look great too). I have similar coloring to you, and would love to try it out.

Where does the wet brush rank compared to a wide tooth comb?!

Kate says · 03.08.17

Disclaimer: I’m not *the* Kate … just a Kate. 😉

Speaking for myself, the wet brush has changed my life. I have curly/wavy hair but the strands are super-fine. I used to use a wide-tooth comb to detangle but still struggled with tangles, pulling … it was just a mess. The wet brush is amazing – gently smooths out my wet hair and gets all the tangles. For me it totally outranks the wide-tooth comb.

Hi Kate!

I’m new here, so I don’t know if you ‘help’ your readers, but I have a question (or two), and feeling desperate, I’m going to take a stab at it! 😉

I’ll be 31 in two weeks, and am in the middle of craziness with littles and pregnancy, which makes me feel—and look—more aged than I’d like. 😉 I’d love to visit a dermatologist, but know that’s out of our budget, at least for now. I’m wondering if you know of a magic potion/cream that can reverse—or at least slow—my aging skin. A few points:
1). I only shop at Fred Meyer or Walmart (we don’t have a Target), so those are my store—and budget—options.
2). I use a 10% benzoyl peroxide face wash almost every day. I’m sure it’s not doing any favors to my skin, but it seems to be the only thing that’ll keep my moderate-severe acne in check.
3). I’ve always had oily skin, but it’s finally starting to head more towards normal. Definitely don’t have dry skin.
4). I have large facial pores. I actually recently tried a pore blurer called Baby Skin by Maybelline. It actually worked, but even with using a tiny amount, it made my skin soo greasy and I had a hard time putting any makeup on top. I’ve heard of a pore silicone filler which sounds interesting, but don’t know where you’d get it (or if that’s the right route).
5). And finally, I’m asking your help because I tend to not believe all the claims of expensive beauty products, and looking online is only confusing, so figured you’d probably know heads from tails a lot better than I would! 😉 You probably have already addressed these questions, so directing me to their appropriate blog posts would be super!

Thank you so very much for your time! And if this isn’t up your alley, that’s okay too… no worries! 🙂
