Favorite Things

Summer Survival via Leslie ReeseThe summer season is fast approaching and temperatures are warming up. Beach vacations, outdoor workouts and dining Al Fresco are a few of my favorite things to do this time of year. For me, summers are all about keeping things light and simple. It's a laid back time of year. I'm all for no makeup days, simple accessories and minimal fuss to make the summer routine quick and easy. So when it comes to beauty and skincare I have some favorite things to help me lighten up for the season. These are some of the things that you'll find in my travel bag right now. Happy Friday!Summer CeraVe SPF

CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF

In January I shared a great tip from my dermatologist,  CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. It's inexpensive and effective. During the summer months I make sure I use the AM lotion with SPF 30 every day.

Summer Body ButterShea Body Butter from The Body Shop

I love  Shea Body Butter. It's hydrating and works well to keep skin soft without feeling greasy. I've been using it for years.


Summer Sugar Lip TreatmentSugar Lip Treatment with SPF by Fresh

Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15 is great every day but especially on a beach day.

Summer Almay Waterproof MascaraAlmay One Coat Waterproof Mascara

Remember, great beauty products aren't always expensive. Almay's One Coat Waterproof Mascara is my choice for smudge free eyes all summer.

Summer Benefit Watts Up Watt's Up! Highlighter by Benefit Cosmetics

A little touch of Watt's Up! Highlighter above your cheeks and you just brightened up your whole face. I love this anytime but it's perfect for those no makeup days!

Summer Bobbi Brown

Beach Fragrance by Bobbi Brown

One of my favorite summer fragrances is Beach by Bobbi Brown. It's a fresh, light scent that is so reminiscent of summers at the beach.

Summer Essie Polish Come Here

Essie Nail Polish in Come Here

A  bright summer color like Essie Nail Polish in Come Here is always fun for beach toes.

Summer Pura Vida BraceletsPuraVida Bracelets

PuraVida  bracelets are one of my favorite summer accessories. They are lightweight, colorful and fun to stack together. PuraVida donates a portion of the proceeds from each bracelet sold to help clean up and preserve beaches and oceans worldwide. Very cool.

Enjoy the warm weather and have a wonderful weekend!
