I’ve been such a busy girl, traveling for work, beach vacation, work, kiddos and more that I haven’t had a chance to share some of my summer favorites with you, so here they are!
Chevron Bangles – Don’t judge, I know the chevron thing is way overdone, but these chevron bangles look so cute mixed with other bracelets and a chunky watch for a easy, casual look that doesn’t look like you are trying too hard.
Forever 21 Cross Body Bag – I have tons of cross body bags, they are perfect for a day of sightseeing, music festivals and more. I was in DC for the 4th of July and forgot my cross body bag and refused to carry around my gigantic handbag all over the city. So on to the nearest Forever and I found this little gem, the caramel leather (obviously not real) is a great color and it actually looks way more expensive than it is. This little puppy has great compartments and can hold a ton of stuff surprisingly. I actually have been carrying it around on a day to day basis b/c I like it so much!
New Music – I have been doing a ton of downloading from iTunes lately. My new faves are Skylar Grey and Lindsey Stirling. Grey is produced by Eminem and has a girly sound with a bit of edge. Stirling is an amazing violinist with a cool techno/dance feel. Both are great additions to my collection and I have been rocking them in the office, in the car, while I get ready etc.
Emi Jay Hair Ties – I have been in love with these for a while but since its so dang hot out I decided to bring them up again. These amazingly soft and functional hair ties make any pony a bit more chic and comfortable. They aren’t tight like normal ponytail holders and they don’t damage your hair. I love using them for a loose wavy low side pony for a soft daytime look.
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation – I’ve honestly been having this foundation forever, and while I like my Sephora brands like Urban Decay, Too Faced etc my guilty pleasure is sometimes cheap cosmetics. After going to the beach my face was a bit more sun kissed than normal leaving my day to day foundation a bit vampirish, this foundation had never been used b/c it was too dark. Perfect timing, the matte finish is perfect for the humid days in Louisiana and looks great all day!
Cappuccino – Finding your signature coffee order is a pretty life changing experience. Coffee is fairly new for me but I have found my one true love through a lot of trial and error. Skim Cappucino, two raw sugars, simple, not too sweet with a perfect amount of jolt!
Color Club Brights – I got two little color club samples in my birch box and I am obsessed. One is a hot neon coral which is perfect for nails/toes at any time of the year and the other is a mint/neon green which is super fun and summery. All the ladies at the nail salon are totally jealous of my cute/tiny polishes that the owner decided to order the line….your welcome!
Blue Bell Strawberry Fruit Bars - These things are AMAZING! Chunks of real strawberries make these popsicles feel healthier but they are so decadent! While they are lower in calories b/c of their natural ingredients, be careful b/c its not difficult to eat the whole box in one day :/
