writing summer roundups often make me sad simply because that means the end of summer is nigh. while I don’t want it to be completely over (hello weekend beach trips!), I’m not completely sad (fall shopping!). so as we’re in the midst of august, why not do a round up of my summer must haves?
Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh
In a Vaseline® Total Moisture® Study, 93% of the members said they’d recommend Vaseline® Total Moisture® lotion. Count me in! The aloe fresh lotion is super lightweight, smells good, and provides great moisture (without feeling thick or heavy). The scent is wonderfully light, meaning it doesn’t interfere or compete with my fragrance. This is actually something I plan on continuing to use into the fall.
Bobbi Brown Beach Eau de Parfum and Caudalíe Beauty Elixir
Bobbi Brown’s Beach eau de parfum is summer in a bottle. I spent most of my summer tracking it down — so popular it was sold out everywhere! Some say it smells like sunscreen but, oddly enough, I don’t get that at all. It has an intoxicating blend of jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin; it’s perfect for day because it’s not over powering, but super fresh and crisp. Caudalíe’s Beauty Elixir is something that’s been in my beauty arsenal for a while but have never used. Why? NO CLUE! Part serum mist, part toner, all amazing. I use it before applying moisturizer and carry it in my bag for a quick pick me up during the day. Super refreshing on super hot days.
Maybelline Color Nail Lacquer in Pink Shock and Sweet Clementine
Maybelline recently launched a new nail lacquer line complete with 40 shades, an app where you can virtually try on the colors and a Pinterest board for inspiration. Talk about going HAM. First, kudos to Maybelline for putting the labels on the top so I don’t have to dig to find a shade. While all of the polishes vary in texture and opacity, I’ve found that Pink Shock (a bright pink) and Sweet Clementine (pretty tangerine) look great with 3 coats and lat about four to five days without chipping.
You’ve no doubt seen these in my outfit posts but I had to include them anyway. I’ve been wearing these everyday since I purchased them and refuse to wear anything else most days.
Theyskens’ Theory Atter Medium Turnlock Bag
Ladylike, compact, and super red. I’m trying to get into smaller bags and this is doing the trick.
