Memorial Day has passed which means summer will soon be upon us. I thought I would share a few products that will be helping me get through the hot summer months...
Hairspray- L'Oréal Elnett
I love this hairspray, it gives me the perfect amount of hold without looking like I am wearing it at all. 
Tinted Moisturizer- Stila Illuminating 
This tinted moisturizer has SPF 15 and a slightly pearlescent tint. It gives my skin a dewy, natural look which is exactly what I want in the summer.
Volume Spray- John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster
I spray this on my wet hair before I blow dry. It gives my fine hair body and volume, which makes it much easier for styling. 
Travel Candle- Nell's Compass in South 
I  love bringing this little guy with me when I travel. It makes me feel at home and smells like a lush garden.
Lipstick- Revlon in Love That Pink
Such a fun bright shade of pink. I think it will be my summer go to.
Self Tanner- L'Oréal Sublime Bronze
I have tried many self tanners and this one works best for me. I have both the gel and the spray.
Nail Polish- Revlon in Minted
I am loving all things mint green these days and this nail polish is perfection.
Dry Shampoo- Batiste Colored Dry Shampoo
When it starts getting hot in LA, dry shampoo is my savior. It gives my hair life in between washes.
Blush- Tarte in Tipsy
This cheek stain is the perfect peachy shade. 
Bobby Pins- Forever 21
Sweaty bangs is not a good look, so I like to keep bobby pins in my purse to pin back my bangs on hot days. 


You may have noticed I wear my hair wavy most of the time. My hair is wavy naturally, but trust me it looks nothing like that. It is that weird in-between wavy/straight/frizzy, which is so rarely cute. I few people have asked me how I do my hair, so I thought I'd turn it in to a how-to. It is super easy once you get the hang of it. I can do it in 5-10 minutes and be out the door... 

What you'll need: Brush, Volumizing Spray or Mousse, Hair Clips, Curling Iron {1 inch- 1.5 inch}, Hair Spray
***{I use a 1.5 inch Conair Curling Iron, John Frieda Vomumizing Mousse or Spray and a chopstick to make the perfect middle part}

1. Start out by putting volumizing spray or mousse in your wet hair and blow it dry. The mousse/spray gives hair more body and helps the waves stay.
 2. Part your hair in the middle and separate the top half of your hair and pin it up. This is to make it easier to curl the bottom pieces.
 3. Start with the back sections and wrap your hair around the curling iron barrel away from your face. Leave the curling iron unclamped and hold the end of your hair away from the iron. 
 4. Now unwind the iron. The hair should look like this.
 5. Continue curling each section of hair until every section is curled. Remember to curl away from the face and do not use the clamp.
6. Once finished curling every section, straighten bangs with hair straightener and brush them out. ***Obviously this step is just for the ladies with bangs.
7. Spray hair with hair spray and scrunch curls with your hands a little to mess them up slightly. You don't want them looking too perfect.
8. It should look something like this. Hope this helps! Good luck!

You will have to excuse my late post today. I am recovering from a fantastic bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas. I have fun photos from my weekend that I promise to post sometime this week!

Here is a list of face, hair and body products I can't get enough of...

Loreal Eye Makeup Remover $6.59, I use this everyday and have for years. It is delicate, oil free and best of all inexpensive!
Alba Coconut Cream Lip Balm $3.49 is organic, hypoallergenic and smells delicious.
I am crazy about Korres Wild Rose Moisturizer $35. I love the way it feels on my face, better than anything else I have used.

 I can't even begin to say how important sunblock is for a fair skinned gal like me. I have worn it everyday of my life since I was 11 years old. I use Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock SPF 60 $11.88. I have very sensitive skin so this works great for me. It melts right in to my skin which I love, I hate greasy sunblocks on my face.

I get really dry skin so sometimes I mix Aquafor Healing Ointment $13.72 and Alba Kakui Nut Organic Body Oil $5.59 for the perfect body moisturizer. It gives your skin that sexy sheen perfect for a warm summer night and it smells like Hawaii!
I have tried my fair share of self tanners and for the price point, Loreal Sublime Bronze in Dark $9.49 works the best for me. The only thing I dislike about it is the sparkles it leaves on your skin after applying it. They wash right off after you shower, but that means for the 8 hours or so you need to leave it on, you look a little Vegas.
Korres Body Butter in Fig $21. The smell is intoxicating (I love anything fig) and feels luxurious on your skin.

I use Davines NouNou Shampoo 19.90 and Conditioner $19.17. It protects my color treated hair and make my hair soft without weighing it down. 

There is a reason why Loreal Elnett Satin Extra Stong Hold $13.99 is used by all the celebrity hair stylists, it works! I holds my waves perfectly and smells kind of like musk (one of my favorite scents).
Batiste Colored Dry Shampoo in Black $5.06 was introduced to me by my English roomie a few years back. It brings your hair back to life and because it's slightly colored it doesn't leave you hair with that white residue that some dry shampoos do. I don't have black hair, its brown, but the black is not that dark so I suggest it for all you brunettes.
 John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Spray $5.24 is genius. I use this on my wet hair before I blow dry and it gives my fine hair lift and volume.
