Hey there! I know it’s been a while, but I have really missed you all. While I took a bit of a break to focus on academics and getting everything in order, I am finally back and ready to share more amazing content with all of you.
When thinking about what to write first, my head jumped all over the place! I want to talk about new books that I am loving, my new favorite makeup products, summer trends I am living for, and so much more. I came to the conclusion to do a summer recap, where I discuss all my favorite products, books, and more, in hopes of inspiring some of you!
If you’re still around and reading my posts, I just wanted to say a big thank you! Your support means the world and get ready for some more consistent, amazing content!
This summer has been a real hot one, with temperatures reaching 100 degrees here in Los Angeles it has been so important to find products that not only keep my skin protected from harmful UV rays, but also keep myself looking nice, glowy, and youthful.
This has become my HOLY GRAIL sunscreen. It leaves your skin looking glowy but not greasy, and I love wearing it alone or with makeup! It is a great base, and I won’t leave the house without it on. I also tend to breakout from sunscreen, but this one has caused zero problems.
This is a miracle in a jar! A friend of mine recently gave this to me, in the shade dusty rose, and my life has been changed ever since. Anytime I step out wearing it, I get a bunch of compliments about how dewy and beautiful my skin looks. I also love how versatile this products is. It can be used on your cheeks alone, over foundation, on your lips, and even eyelids! It is made with amazing ingredients such as Vitamin E, Argan oil, and Jojoba seed oil, leaving my skin nice and moisturized. It is the perfect addition to a “no makeup” makeup look.
If you’re anything like me, then you just want to look tan all summer long. This bronzer will do just that! It’s soft texture and perfect color leaves my skin looking naturally bronzed. The product just melts and blends into the skin beautifully, and the best part is that it’s now 50% off! It comes with a great mirror and a ton of product.
Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I zipped through this book and loved every second of it. Without giving too much away, the story follows four siblings primarily the eldest daughter Nina, and how they navigate their lives in Malibu. There is drama, an epic party, and even some twists I never saw coming. The writing is modern, sexy, and exciting. It’s the perfect summer read!
Everything I Know About Love: A Memoir by Dolly Alderton
The perfect blend of comical, provocative, and raw writing. Filled with funny stories, anecdotes, lists, recipes, and more, this book is sure to keep you entertained. Dolly Alderton’s style of writing makes you feel like you’re hearing stories from an older sister or close friend about love, breakups, getting drunk, and finding yourself.
Do It For Yourself Guided Journal by Kara Cutruzzula
This guided journal has been a blessing! It is what motivated me to continue working on my blog. Filled with great prompts and stunning illustrations, this journal will get you on a track with whatever passion project you have!
Peal Charm Chain Bracelet from & Other Stories
Pearls have been huge this summer! While, I think this trend will die out soon in the fall, I have been loving it for summer. Instead of splurging on an expensive pearl and beaded necklace or bracelet, opt for cheaper versions like this one or even make your own. The trend is cute and playful, and is perfectly beachy for summer!
Zadig&Voltaire Rock Novel nano suede cross-body bag
This has become my summer bag. I absolutely love the bright burnt orange color and the mixture of suede and leather. Surprisingly, it holds a lot, and has been a great pop of color in my wardrobe. I love the hardware and how easy it is to throw on and head out the door.
Over the past year my hair has changed so much. I don’t know if it was the stress of the pandemic or starting college, but I found that my hair was thinner than ever and my part showed more of my scalp than usual. These vitamins have transformed my hair! My scalp is way less visible and my hair feels thicker and shinnier than ever!
Thanks for reading all about my summer favorites! Let me know if you try any of them out or have anything you think I might like. Have a great rest of your summer. Enjoy the sun and relax!
