Happy almost 4th of July! I can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by. For today’s post, I wanted to share with you all some of my go to outfits for the 4th if you are needing some inspiration or are panicking to find an outfit last minute.

Outfit #1

For the first outfit, I wanted to share with you all something really easy to throw together last minute that still looks super cute and is affordable. This outfit would be more suitable for a dressier 4th of July party and great for a get together with friends and family. I went with a romper for this one and of course it kept the stripes theme haha. I love this romper and it is the perfect amount of dressy and cute so you aren’t dying in the heat. It almost looks like a dress, but it is way more comfortable. For the shoes, I got them from Urban Outfitters for Christmas and I have been waiting for forever to find something to wear them to. I thought the 4th would be perfect since they are a silvery metallic fabric. They are actually really comfortable as well. Finally, the sunglasses were only $7 from Forever 21 and shockingly I haven’t broken them yet so I definitely would recommend. I tried to keep the same silver vibe going on with the silver lens sunglasses as well.

For the next outfit, I was inspired by the whole stripe trend going on right now because I have so many striped tops and rompers. I seriously love the top I am wearing and I just got it in the mail the other day and it is already one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I definitely plan on wearing it again when I go to Orlando next week. I didn’t get a picture of the shorts and shoes I am wearing, but I will share them with you as well. The shorts are from Lulus, but the brand is Billabong, The shorts are so comfortable for being high waisted, which I am not usually a fan of since the have such a weird fit and I ordered them online so I didn’t know what to expect. For shoes, I wanted to keep the all American girl vibes I guess and went with some basic white Converse. I love how this outfit turned out and I think it is perfect for the 4th and gives off a cute, but casual vibe.

Hey guys! Happy Summer! For today’s blog post, I want to share with you all some of my summer essentials for 2018.Screen Shot 2018-06-18 at 9.48.23 PM.png

Essential #1

I definitely am a fan of the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Moisturizing Condition for my hair. It smells SO GOOD! I totally suggest it if you don’t live by a beach, but you want your hair to smell like it.

Essential #2

For the next essential, I suggest picking up some aloe vera because it is great for when you get burned.

Essential #3

Moving on, to capture your summer memories definitely get a Fujifilm Instax Mini polaroid camera because it is so easy to use and keep the memories alive.

Essential #4

I seriously love Lilly Pulitzer sunglasses. I think they are the cutest and they have so many patterns. The lenses are great because they keep the sun out of your eyes and they are probably one of my favorite pairs of sunglasses I own.

Essential #5

On the fashion side, I really love throwing any sneakers like Converse on for the day. They are perfect for any outfit including shorts and a t shirt or even a cute dress.

Essential #6

Another essential I have been loving for the summer is any type of a straw hat or sun hat. I think they are so cute for summer and definitely spice up any outfit. I personally love the ones on ASOS and Show Me Your Mumu.

Essential #7

Aerie swimsuits are a must this summer! They are also a great price. My favorite one currently is the Ribbed Scoop Bikini Top in Harvest.

Essential #8

Finally, I am a big fan of ripped jean shorts. I love these ones I am wearing from Gap.

Hey guys! Recently on my Youtube channel, I made a video on my Summer Beauty Routine for 2018. I thought it would be helpful to explain the products more in depth in a blog post so that’s what I am doing today! Make sure to check out the video here to see me use the products.

Skin Care:

Starting out with skin care, I use a couple different products on a regular basis. On a typical day, I use my Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Face Wash twice a day to cleanse my face. Then, at night I use a dermatologist recommended moisturizer lotion and Epiduo Forte for spot treatments. On occasion, I sometimes use a Lush face mask or a Carbonated Bubble Clay Face mask. I think they are so cool to use and leave your face feeling fresh for the summer! For the video I filmed, I worked with the brand Bealuz to try out their exfoliating foot peel masks. The masks remove dead skin and are an easy way to exfoliate your feet from home rather than at the salon.

Makeup:

Now moving on to the makeup, I use a variety of products depending on the look I am going for that day, but I like to keep my summer makeup simple.

For foundation, I like a light and not to thick look so that it appears somewhat airbrushed if you know what I mean. I use the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear to achieve that look.

Then, for concealer I use the drugstore Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. It is probably the cheapest one I have found yet and it looks surprisingly the best in my opinion.

As for bronzer, I picked up the Benefit Hoola Bronzer because I have heard so many beauty gurus rave about it so I thought it was time I step on the band wagon lol. It definitely does wonders haha.

During the summer, I feel like my face always gets somewhat greasy and dewy from all the makeup looks I try so I like to use the Sonia Kashuk Loose Powder from Target.

Then, for eyebrows I like the drugstore Loreal Frame and Set to darken my brows.

Recently, I purchased the Aspyn Ovard Tarte Palette and it is seriously the best makeup purchase I have EVER made! I love it so much and it has everything all in one. From blush, highlight, to a variety of eyeshadows. It has it all! If it isn’t sold out yet, I would recommend picking it up while it lasts at Ulta. It is a limited time palette and is perfect for my skin tone so that’s just one of the reasons I love it so much. I use all of the shades on the palette actually if you were curious!

To finish my eyes off, I use the Loreal Voluminous Original for my mascara.

I use a variety of lip products depending on my outfit choice during the summer time, but pictured is a Revlon Lip Gloss in the color Sandstone.

Hair Care:

For my hair, I use a lot of products since I have bleach blonde hair. For shampoo and conditioner, I use the Obliphica Seaberry Shampoo and Conditioner from my salon. About 1-2 times a week I use the Joico Color Endure Violet purple shampoo to tone the blonde and cancel out the golden tones. If I go swimming, I use the Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three to keep my hair from turning Green since I have blonde hair. I use it immediately after I get out of the pool and get home. Finally, once a week I use Olaplex Number 3 to help my hair since I do bleach it.

I hope you guys got some more details about my summer beauty routine from this blog post! I definitely love the products and this is not sponsored in any way. You should definitely check out the products and let me know what you think. My Summer Beauty Routine video will be linked here!
