Current Summer Favorites

Summer Essentials

Hi everyone! I hope your Friday is going well. Anyone have fun weekend plans? 

Today I wanted to share a few products I've been loving this summer. I never do "Favorites" or "Haul" videos on my channel so this is my way of showing you what I've been using the most lately. I hope you enjoy!

  • Fedoras: As if I wasn't already lazy when it came to doing my hair, now the fedora allows me to be flat out lazy! Over the past few weeks it feels like I've been buying every fedora I see. They are not only cute and comfy, but they hide my "fell asleep with me hair wet" look. Perfect for a bad hair day!

  • Bare Minerals READY Foundation: I seriously have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. I wore it forever, loved it, then wasn't into it, now I'm back to loving it! I think the ultimate deal breaker with this stuff is the brush that your using to apply it. I found that I didn't like using the Precision Face Brush with it because I felt as if it didn't buff into the skin very well. Now, I only use it with my BM Synthetic Angled Kabuki or my Original BM Brushes. It's so easy and quick for summer!

  • PINK Body Mists: These are seriously my favorite body mists of all time, especially for summer time. The newest one I got was "Beach Weekend", I've mentioned it before and how I thought it wasn't going to be for everyone due to the "salty" scent but I love mixing it with "Exotic Coconut" by Bath and Body! Another PINK mist I love is the "Fresh and Flirty" from the Summer Vanillas collection last year, I don't think it's available anymore though! :(

  • Living Proof Prime Style Extender : This has been my newly discovered hair product for summer. The Living Proof Prime Style Extender is basically a primer for your hair. It's supposed to make your curls, waves, or even straight hair last longer. I can definitely tell a difference when I use it. I love it!

  • Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick: I've been loving these ever since EmilyNoel83 recommended them! They are so moisturizing (even better than Clinique Chubby Stick) and have the prettiest color payoff - not too intense but not too sheer. The smell is heavenly also - almost like fresh peaches!

  • Julep Nail Polish: Of course I have always loved Julep but I feel like they have the best summer color selection as far as nail polishes go, not to mention the BEST formulas (woot woot for paraben free products) Not only have I been loving their polishes, but also some of their body products. If you haven't checked them out them please do so!

  • Bauble Bar String Bracelets : There's just something so simple but chic about these bracelets. I always get compliments when I wear mine! Not to mention they are so easy to style. A lot of the bracelets don't even require a clasp, you just simply pull the string to loosen or tighten the bracelets up. Love it!

So, that's what I have been loving this summer! Let me know what you've been using up in your daily routine :)

Until next time...


  1. I love the Bare Minerals brand. I've been using it for over 5 years now.

  2. The Pink body mists from Victoria's Secret are amazing. I own the 'Sweet & Flirty' scent - I love it!

  3. Do you like the BareMinerals foundation? I use the matte powder usually, but it's such a mess to take with me; I'd like to try the foundation, but the girl at their store said it would make my skin almost *too* hydrated. Frustrating.

    Also, I love your blog - I do beauty posts too, and just reviewed a lipstick you did(and snagged, with appropriate credit, one of your pics, so thanks!). :)
