Hi Friends, happy Tuesday. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. Ours was very fun and relaxing. Although the weather wasn’t great, we made the most of it. I spent most of last week recovering from my skin cancer surgery and did not feel like blogging at all, so I listened to my body and took the week off. I am doing much better now and I wanted to thank all of you who reached out with your kind words and loving thoughts. It really meant so much to me. One thing that cheered me up during recovery was that we booked a trip to Cabo San Lucas this summer. We are all so excited for sand, sun and fun and the boys are plotting their adventures. Hence, I have had vacation on the brain, and it becomes quite evident in this month’s edition of what I am currently loving. Enjoy!
1// This nail polish has become a fast summer favorite. It is technically a ridge-filling base coat, but I love it has a sheer, unfussy polish. It is perfect for the summer. I simply apply 2 coats to bare nails and pop on my favorite top coat. Done!
2// We have a new favorite toothpaste brand in this house. Hello is a naturally friendly line of toothpaste, mouthwash and tooth brushes, and we love it all. They have a wide range of toothpastes and flavors, but I love the sensitive one, and my son LOVES the Charcoal. (It is actually black toothpaste. What kid wouldn’t love that?). He also loves the watermelon mouthwash and brushes his teeth twice a day without prompting. If you subscribe, you also get a new toothbrush with every order. I love mine – it is super soft and great for my sensitive teeth.
3// One of my favorite summer fragrances is this Beach scent from Bobbi Brown. It just oozes summer and smells like suntan lotion, sun and ocean. This travel friendly, TSA approved rollerball is small and convenient to put into my purse or carry-on, so I can enjoy my favorite scent anywhere, anytime.
4// I am obsessed with pom poms. This crisp, white top is a cute alternative to a tee and look super adorable with denim cut offs and my new favorite summer hat. (I talk more about that below)
5// I have been a long-time fan of the Hudson + Bleecker line for all of my travel and beauty bag needs. I am currently obsessed with the Genoa Voyager toiletry bag. This bag is so practical and absolutely gorgeous. It is so chic and perfect for traveling this summer. It has separate, clear compartments that snap inside the bag and also a cute makeup pouch for my summer beauty essentials. There are a few colors to choose from, but I love the white. Perfection!
6// Blax clear hair elastics are a staple of mine year round, but are especially vital during summer and pool season. They are gentle on strands, yet sturdy and won’t snap. They are perfect for all summer hairstyles, such as braids and top knots. I buy them in bulk on Amazon.
7// A perfect summer hat is so important for sun protection. I love this one. It is made from raffia and you can smush it into your suitcase or beach bag 1000x and it will retain its shape perfectly. It is also on sale today only for 40% off. The hat runs small, so size up one size. I got the medium/large.
8// I am a huge fan of the Supergoop brand and their products never disappoint. ( You get 15% off your first order here.)I talk about their hand cream in this post. Unseen Sunscreen is one of the best facial sunscreens I have ever used. It has a velvety smooth, makeup gripping finish and is perfect as a primer. It will be a constant companion in my summer makeup bag.
9// One of my favorite makeup lines is Wander Beauty. I shared these super hydrating beach balms in this post. My favorite color is Sol, the perfect pink. I am also a huge fan of these liquid eyeshadows. They are so easy to apply, anyone can do it. Once dried, they do not budge and stay in place all day. They are absolute perfect for hot summer days and beach and pool season. I love them all and just socked up on all 4 shades.
