Summer clothes may be on sale, but that doesn’t mean that summer is over! We still have a good month; even two of this steamy weather! Here are just a few things that have been getting me through the summer months.
A friend recently introduced me to this and it is my new favorite beauty product. I am a girl with bad spider veins and (sad but true) cellulite. While this won’t get rid of these things, it will certainly conceal them to a certain extent. It is easy to apply (spray and then rub in really good) and it gives a nice color that will last a few days even after the shower. It is waterproof too, which makes it great to spray on before you go to the pool! Get the Deep Glow; it is the best of all the colors, even for fair skin. It is $14 at target, but I found it online for $10 HERE. … Continue Reading
Summer…bring it on! I don’t care if we go straight to 80 degrees. I am so ready for it! When warmer temps arrive it’s time to switch up my beauty routine. For Summer I always love a lighter fragrance. I tend to gravitate to lighter scents anyways, so most of my favorites I only can wear this time of year. Here are 4 that I wear and love

I am totally riding the fun nail polish train as long as possible. It’s so refreshing to be able to use colors other than pink, red or coral! Essie’s resort collection is amazing! 4 bright fun shades perfect for toes or fingers.
Think of all the beautiful places you have taken a vacation. Remember the color of the water? That is what “in the cab-ana” reminds me of. The most perfect shade of tropical blue. love it.
You can find the entire collection for sale HERE.
We have a gorgeous new grocery store here in Kansas City (for you locals, it’s the HyVee at 95th and Antioch). It’s enormous with all your typical grocery store product, but then it also has a HUGE organic and health food section. It’s amazing! Finally, you can get all of your shopping done in one place as opposed to making two trips.
The beauty section sucked me right in. Ahhhh, it’s so hard to pass up inexpensive beauty buys! The first thing that caught my eye was this all-natural beauty line called Love & Toast. Margot Elena, the name behind the brand is also the woman who started Lollia, a very popular fragrance line (found at Anthropologie).
The packaging is impeccable. So colorful and pretty; it is hard not to notice.
