5 MUST-HAVES for Summer : #5!

The end of the list...

MUST-HAVE # 5: A Summer Glow

To top off your summer ensemble, you gotta have your summer glow.

What do I mean by that?
I mean, beautiful glowing skin.
In the winter, skin is more prone to dryness, ashiness and dullness due to the weather.

However, in the summer time , the sun kisses the skin with a tan and sometimes the heat makes us sweat, which actually is good to get impurities out etc.

To get a nice summer glow, keep your skin clean, protected and moisturized (sunscreen and exfoliation is important )
Lotions and creams with a little shimmer and/or tint in them are nice, as long as they aren't the ones that rub off on everything. 
If you wear makeup, illuminating powders , highlighters and soft blushes are good as well as lightweight foundations and powders that match your skin color to enhance your natural beauty. 

Also, remember that lovely skin begins with the inside, so drink lots of water and eat healthy...and don't forget to smile :)

5 MUST-HAVES for Summer: #4!

The list continues...

MUST-HAVE # 4: Flip Flops!

Yes y'all, Flip Flops.
But not the dollar store kind that you just use for questionable showers or those cheap pairs to slip your feet in real quick at home.

I'm talking about the platform, wedge or  ones with small heels, bejeweled or printed, relatively quality flip flops. 
If you are going to rock flip flops, they have to be right!

Why Flip Flops Though? Cuz It's Hot!
Sometimes you want your feet to be able to breathe a little more on really hot days or you just want a more laid- back, casual yet cute look that's fast and easy.

Looking for really cute flip flops?

5 MUST-HAVES for Summer: #3!

The list continues...

MUST-HAVE #3: Sunglasses!

Sunglasses, or "Sunnies" as Rachel Zoe says, are an absolute must-have!

Because not only will they keep your eyes shaded from the sun, they instantly bump you up in Style Status.
There's something about sunglasses, whether aviator, bug eye" Nicole Richie style etc, that say "I'm Fly."

No makeup today? No Problem!
Tired eyes or just feel like being incognito today ? No problem. 

Charlotte Russe or Chanel, Bust out the Sunnies within your budget!
