For this post, I received products from Hand in Hand. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.
Every year I struggle to find good stocking stuffer ideas. Even though stocking stuffers are traditionally smaller in scale, I still want them to feel special and unique. More often than not, I navigate toward gifts that are natural and small-batch for this reason. This year I’m filling our stockings with these wintery soaps from Hand in Hand. Not only are they all-natural, but they are fair-trade, cruelty-free, and smell amazing!

If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories lately, you’ll know a little secret about me: I love beauty products and skincare. While I’m not exactly a beauty buff, I do really love testing out new masks, serums, and creams. My best friend is way more of a beauty-holic than I am and frequently educates me about the hottest new beauty trends. I curated this gift guide with her in mind!
This time of year, it’s really important to give yourself plenty of relaxation time (editor’s note: amen!). With the holiday season just around the corner, try to carve out some “you-time” and create a ritual of self-care. For me, that’s a nice hot bath after a chilly fall day. I’ve been really loving all the new fancy bath bombs on the market, but they can get pretty spendy and some are chock-full of artificial coloring and weird ingredients that I don’t want on my skin.
So instead of shelling out for weekly bath bombs, I thought I’d make my own recipe with a few of my favorite fall scents, like spruce and lavandin with a hint of orange. It has a sparkling orange color that’s completely organic from the Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt, a natural detoxifying clay mixture. These are a perfect handmade gift for anyone who needs a little extra relation in their life or a fun project to treat yo’ self.
Truly one of my favorite sales of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us and you guys can get early access HERE! I always shop this huge store-wide sale and use it as an opportunity to stock up on all of my favorite items from jeans to dresses to shoes (oh, the shoes… so many great styles this year) to beauty. Here’s my exhaustive guide to the sale and all of the must-haves I’m eyeing:
Lately we’ve been spending lots of time working out on Joanna’s new deck that was sponsored by World Market (if you haven’t seen the transformation yet, you have to check out the reveal right this minute!) and after a long afternoon in the sun, my super-sensitive skin needs all the help it can get recovering from the much-needed rays. That’s why I decided to combine 6 super-hydrating ingredients to create the ultimate after sun lotion.
With summer just around the corner, I’ve already started transitioning my beauty routine and paring down my makeup regimen. Last spring, we partnered with Onomie for one of our most popular giveaways yet, so we were totally stoked when they reached out with a new product! For those of you who don’t know, Onomie is beauty brand created to simplify beauty and maximize the benefits for women who recognize that beauty shouldn’t be complicated.
Joanna’s been using their products for the past year and, now that I’ve got the chance to try them out, I’m blown away. The trio feels like just enough to even out my complexion without feeling like I’m wearing a heavy face-full of makeup. Keep on reading to learn more + enter to win the Complete Complexion Trio!
Vaseline and I go way back. Growing up on the east coast, every winter we’d get at least one major snowstorm and my mom would coat both of our faces in this trusty moisture necessity. It was perfect for keeping our skin from getting chapped while we dug out the car (and had a snowball fight or two). From there, my love of Vaseline grew more and more. I always keep a mini jar by my bed to keep my lips soft year round. Not to mention how many times I’ve used Vaseline in a pinch to sooth my dry, chapped skin after rock climbing. When it comes to moisture, this has always been my go-to.
Here’s the thing though… this old favorite recently underwent a bit of facelift, so you can imagine my excitement to partner with Vaseline on today’s post!
