Five Favorites of Summer

Growing up on the Gulf of Mexico meant that I was instantly a beach baby. I thought everyone’s beach was like mine: white sand and emerald coastlines. Now that I am a city girl, I don’t always get to spend every day on the water, but you better believe that I try to feel like a surfer girl even in the concrete jungle. Here are five of my favorite products that I like to use all summer long.

Sun Bum

I am all about using sun screen to protect my skin, and this brand is my favorite! It smells incredible and keeps me from being burned from a long day on the beach. It’s waterproof, so I can stay in the water for about an hour without having to reapply. And the company’s mascot is a monkey (how cute is that?!)

Sol De Janiero

I just discovered this brand, and I am its biggest fan. Seriously. This company is unreal, and I use their products every day. The body spray and lotion literally smell like vanilla and coconuts. And the product use natural ingredients and no animal testing (I love furry friends).

Essie Nail Polish

Essie is my fav.  And Minimalistic is my favorite nail color. Hands down. I actually use it all year long (gotta have that pink mani). I have tried so many shades on pink, and they always look too sheer, too bland, or too bright. But Essie has it right with this one.

Solar Recovery

This product changed the game for me and the sun. I use this spray after every trip to the beach. If I think I have had too much sun, I spray this and I will not look like a lobster the next day. The brand uses lavender and other oils that keep my skin from peeling. I have been in the sun for way too long in the past, but after spraying this on my sun burn, I have never peeled once. Ever. It is like a miracle worker in liquid form.

Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara


Y’all, I have used many mascaras, but this one is so good. The wide brush makes it easy to layer and never clumps. It’s not waterproof, but I can wear this swimming and not have black under-eye. It is on the expensive side on the mascara market, but I have found that it lasts and worth the value.
