Late Summer Favorites

It's technically autumn now but the weather isn't cool yet. So no mugs of hot cocoa or over sized sweaters and knit leggings yet :)

It's averaging around 85 degrees here so I'm still dressing (and sweating) like it's August!

I would like to share some things that I have been using to stay dry and smelling good as well as my favorite summer recipes on pinterest and some outfit inspiration.


SKINCARE

Summer Skin Care Favorites 2017


Absolute favs: ♥ Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Polish is now a staple in my skin care routine! It smells like mandarins, peaches and amber. It leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and smelling good for hours. ♥ Burt's Bees Dusting Powder is very very helpful in the summer time because I am *cough*cough* well endowed and I hate sweating in my bra =/ Applying this on dry skin anywhere where chafing and sweating can occur (armpits, underneath and between breasts, between thighs, etc) leaves you dry all day in warm climates.

BEAUTY

Everyday Summer Makeup


Absolute Favs: ♥Bath & Body Works Mentha Lip Shine is perfect for summer because it's clear so it doesn't clash with your eye or cheek makeup, long lasting and smells like mint! ♥Kiss EZ Lashes are amazing because they are easier to apply than strip lashes and less time-consuming than trios/clusters. ♥ My first highlighter I have ever worn was from Koyvoca, a brand that I found on Instagram months ago. I purchased 1,000,000 babe and Goddess Olivia, both of which look great on dark skin! Check them out on ig @koyvocacosmetics! I don't wear eyeshadow or eyeliner or even foundation in the summer because I feel like it's too heavy and time consuming.
