Let's get one thing straight. I don't think "lazy" is a dirty word. In fact, I think it can be quite the opposite. We live in a fast-paced world that values productivity over so many other, more important things. Consciously choosing to slow down and embrace stillness feels like some kind of quiet rebellion.

Lately, I've joined this rebellion by entering what I'm calling my lazy-girl era. This means that for the foreseeable future, I'll be indulging in slow moments, whether that's catching up on all the shows I said I'd watch, finally making a dent in my pile of unread books, or just enjoying a really good cup of coffee. I'll also be turning to my collection of lazy-girl beauty products. These are the skincare, makeup, and haircare items that give me the results I want without absorbing too much of my time or effort. From a hair-smoothing silk pillowcase to an easily removable tubing mascara, I invite you to join me in a well-deserved lazy era.
