Summertime Sadness

I guess I am officially supposed to be saying goodbye to summer, but that doesn't mean I will be coming to a complete halt with my current routine. It is time to transition some of the products that I have been loving lately over to the start of cooler weather. 


Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self Tanning Oil | To keep that summer tan in tact, I love using this self tanning oil right out of the shower. It doesn’t offer a big dose of color, but thats why I like it for the cooler months. It keeps skin golden, without looking fake. Unlike other self tanners, this is has a lovely subtle scent and you can wear it throughout the day without feeling sticky. 

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist | My ultimate, can’t live without facial mist. I literally discovered this years ago in San Francisco, before it became such a popular brand. I am fussy about scents, especially synthetic ones, but this is formulated with natural orange blossom water and it is divine. Plus it leaves skins fresh and dewy. I mist my friends all day and they always do a double take, “wait what is that?!” My little secret and now it’s yours. 

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer | Another oldie but a goodie in my book. This all-natural creamy highlighter is not only beautiful, but you’re actually using a makeup product that is good for your skin. Formulated with less than 5 ingredients, this is subtle, but light-catching and lovely. I wear this even on days I am not wearing any other makeup.


IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm | After towel drying, I love applying a dime sized amount of this hair balm to damp hair. I will either blow dry or air dry. Hair is left soft, shiny, and polished. 

IGK Beach Club Texture Spray | If my day old hair is feeling bit blah or flat, I love giving it a boost with this texture spray. The fine mist allows you to have much more control than other sprays, so you can never overdo it. It also smells like the beach, so I can hold onto summer that little bit longer. 


Parker Thatch Valet Tray | I am completely obsessed with this monogrammed catch-all. I have a tendency to throw my bracelets down in any old place, but now that I have a designated area, I have become much more responsible. These are great next to your bed or even on a desk, plus it flattens completely so you can stick in your suitcase to travel with. Genius! Come December, this will be a staple gift I will be giving at the holidays.

House of Harlow x Revolve Quinn Sweater | Best purchase for Fall so far. As the summer nights were getting a bit cooler, I decided to get this chunky cream sweater to wear over shorts or even a bathing suit. I have been wearing NONSTOP and will continue to do so. So soft and not too bulky. (I am wearing in the picture above and below.)

Janessa Leone Panama Hat | I know I am beating this hat to death, but I just love it! The unique shade of brown will allow it to transition easily into the Autumn months. I never would have thought just how much use I would have gotten out of a hat, but this has been worth every penny. I can’t wait to get one of her wool hats for winter. I have been spying this one | 

Herewith Magazine | A new discovery for me, this modern beach lifestyle magazine is a photographers dream. Breathtaking editorials, it is worth having a look at. Purchase online or in Sleepy Jones on Montana Ave,
