ONE TUNIC, TWO WAYS






As I mentioned on Friday, J & I had the chance to go out to East Hampton over this past weekend. The weather was pretty good & we had a ton of fun! I am one of those people that almost always over packs because you never know that the weather might be or what activity you may end up doing. #GottaBePrepared
Anyways, since we were only going to be away for 1 night, I threw some items in a bag and figured I was all set.  Lucky for me, this tunic dress from Tobi is super versatile. I ended up wearing it as a cover up to the beach during the day & adding jeans and heels to wear it as a tunic top out to dinner over the weekend as well!

PS. Get this tunic and more for 50% off today only! Read on below!

SUMMER BBQ + LINK UP




One more reason I love the summertime (as if there weren't enough reasons already?): BBQs! I really think I could eat hot dogs and turkey burgers every night for dinner - I love them so much! Not to mention cole slaw and potato salad - yum!  My outfit for a BBQ is always laid back and relaxed - the epitome of summer time casual, if you will. As a denim lover, double denim is a favorite outfit of mine and today I transformed the look to make it work for an afternoon BBQ.

CASUAL FRIDAY: TUNIC DRESS





TGIF! We made it to Friday! I am extra excited for this weekend bc J is off on Saturday so we are heading out to East Hampton for the night.  I haven't been out there since 4th of July and J hasn't come out once this entire summer, so we are excited for a beach day together!

5 BEAUTY PRODUCTS I USE TO THE VERY LAST DROP

Today's post is all about my FAVORITE beauty products.  I buy & get sent a ton of products to try & I enjoy using many of them but there are only a select few that I use to the very end & buy over and over again. Today I'm sharing my best of the best beauty products.


BareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation - I have been using this foundation for years and I absolutely it. This product is available in 20 shades so you are guaranteed to find your perfect match (I wear number 8). My favorite part about this foundation is the natural finish; since my shade matches my skin, you can barely notice that I am wearing foundation. It is also made with vitamin C, SPF 20 and does not include fragrance, oil or parabens which is a blessing for my sensitive skin. I highly recommend getting the face brush that Bare Minerals offers to help blend your foundation for a flawless finish. 

Thrive Causemetics Waterproof Eyebrow Liner- I was introduced to this eyebrow pencil during Fashion Week last year and have used it everyday since then. This liner is all natural and created by one of my favorite brands: Thrive Causemetics. It's only available in 2 shades but they are universal thanks to smart pigments in the formula and amazingly, I can vouch for the fact that it's true! When I lightened my hair for summer, my colorist also lightened my brows and I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to use this product anymore, but it managed to blend just as perfectly with my lighter brows. Remember, for every product purchased, Thrive donates one to a woman going through cancer treatment. You can get $10 off your order here.

Revlon Highlighting Palette - Another product that I have been using for years. So long in fact, that I actually have to buy it on eBay since it's no longer available in stores.  I love the sun kissed glow that this product gives me and how it saves me a step since I can apply my blush & bronzer at one time. I'm sadly down to my last palette so I have been searching out similar bronzer/blush palettes and came across this super similar one, also by Revlon. I plan to buy the Peach Glow shade.  Has anyone tried it??

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - Hands down, my favorite product of all 5. If there's one product I wear everyday, it's mascara. I was already a fan of Benefit mascara (I had used 'They're Real' mascara a while back) When this mascara came out, I was selected to try it blindly before the product officially launched and after using it only a few times, I knew that whatever it ended up being, I was going to purchase it. I love that only a few swipes lifes, curls and lengthens my lashes. Plus, it lasts all day.

ELF Nude Lip Balm - When I'm not wearing a bold lip color, I'm wearing this lip balm. It is the perfect nude color for my skin tone, includes SPF & is super moisturizing. I wear this lip balm because of it's benefits but also just because it looks great!


Let me know your absolute favorite beauty products in the comments below.

ELEVATE YOUR DENIM SHORTS




Is there any summer outfit that's better than a tee shirt and denim shorts?? I don't think so. I toss on my denim shorts for just about every weekend occasion and love the idea of wearing them all day, every day during the summer. One fool proof way to elevate your denim shorts outfits is to toss a blazer on top of your look.  It instantly takes your outfit from basic to chic. Add a pair of heels (or wedges!) and some delicate jewelry and you're out the door!
