I’ve had the best summer so far and still have so many fun trips and plans for the remainder of it. I wanted to share a few things I’ve been really enjoying this summer that I think y’all will appreciate.
I’ve been really stepping back and smelling the flowers lately…literally. I got this beautiful array of fresh flowers from Traders Joe’s for the amazing price of $5.99. I love having fresh flowers in the house and now that I found these for this great price I will be buying new bouquets every two weeks!
I’ve been really into au naturale-ness lately. I’ve been on an essential oil kick as well as planting my own herbs and flowers. Right now I’m growing basil, rosemary, and mint (planting mint only for mojitos). I also have a white petunia plant. Send my plants your prayers on surviving because I’m just winging this green thumb thing.
Shoutout to my father for buying this big beauty for me for Christmas. This shell float is HUGE and so much fun (not fun blowing it up…I’ve already bought a car charger electric pump for this). You can get this big boy from Urban Outfitters but I found it cheaper on amazon.com if you’re not wanting to spend almost $50 for it.
Screenshot from her YouTube channel.THIS. Jaclyn Hill teamed up with Morphe and is releasing this 35 custom creamy eye shadow palette. I am so excited it’s unreal. It launches today at 8am PST (10am central which is my time zone). Also, use codes to get $$$ off. The ones I know off the top of my head are JACATTACK (Jaclyn Hills code), MANNYMUA (Manny MUA’s code), and LauraLee (Laura Lee’s code). She has worked for two years on this palette and it really shows. Her swatches are so pigmented and the palette has all of the necessary colors to create a sultry or even a cutesy look.
I have quite a few summer fave’s but I want to spread them out more so stay tuned for more of my favorite items, makeup products, etc. that I have fallen for in summer ’17. What are some of your favorite summer products? I always love new recommendations.
