Summer may be over, but pool days are not

Summer may be over, but pool days are not

Hi ladies and gents,

Ya know the saying ‘when it rains it pours’?? Well that has been my life in a nutshell lately because just 3 days after my car giving out on me, my computer was hacked. ‘Twas a great time, truly. But we are on the up and up round here and my life has made a steep improvement with a functioning computer and great possibility of getting my car back in the morning! Yee doggy.

But I was just thinking about the fact that summer is practically halfway through and I will be headed back to school soon enough, but it still seems to be a good idea to do some swimsuit shopping if you ask me. It is hotter than Hades and looks to be staying that way for the foreseeable future so I say there is no better time than now to get a few more swimmies and some other summer essentials. Like really, who says you can’t buy swimsuits at the end of summer? Probably some people.. but we don’t like those ones because we make the rules around here.

Really though, get those swimsuits now because once winter comes and you are planning to jetset off to Cabo, the only options you will have are the competitive suits that squeeze in all of the wrong places. And maybe the new bathing suit will give you that incentive to book the tropical vacay you need.. $50000 might be better incentive but we have gotta take what we can get. So buy them now and thank me later. 🙂

Also just wanna chat about summer accessories that you should NOT leave the house without.. If you said clothes, you are not wrong.. just because it is summer , doesn’t mean you can saunter around naked. However the real accessory we should discuss is some good skincare. Slap sunscreen on here, there, everywhere. The only thing worse than a fried lobster is a wrinkly, sun-damaged one some years down the road. And then invest in some serum or gel to soothe your skin and add some moisture after a long day in the sun. I shall include my faves here so you can stay protected all year round. K enjoy them now.

So take my advice for once in your life.. I am right occasionally. K bye.

Hey honey pie sweet bottoms,

The sun is shining, I am covered in dirt from the marina, and Oakley is soaking wet while passed out on my bed.. so no better time to write a blogpost than now. And of course today’s post is all about my current faves so you are in for a real treat.

Lately I have been trying to change up my products and try new things instead of sticking with the exact routine every time just so I can tell you all about the hippest and happenin’. I figure it is my civic duty to spend my money on the trends so I can save you some time and money by leading you in the right direction. You can thank me now or later, your choice. 😉 but really, hopefully these blogposts give you some ideas of the things you absolutely need and the ones you can most likely skip.

Alsoooooo I don’t really believe in negative reviews on my blog because that is no good for anyone so don’t expect me to tell you a list of things you shouldn’t try, but instead the best of the best things you SHOULD try. Okay, I will get off my soapbox now.. just had to give a quick little spiel (and let us all laugh at the fact that up until now I thought that ‘spiel’ was spelled ‘schpeel’… close)

Now onto the favorites, so here we go!

Number one – Bio oil is where it’s at. It heals all wounds, probably contains unicorn tears and locks of angel hair to make it work so well.. but to be honest it is the best moisturizer/skin healer known to mankind. This stuff has made my battle scars disappear.

Number two – the CUTEST pink suede hat you will ever see. My mom and I are on the constant hunt for cute Dodgers hats and I think this one officially tops the list. They also have it for the Yankees, but no one really likes them anyway.

Number three – Watermelon glow mask… I am the biggest fan of watermelon you will ever meet so I may be biased, but this stuff is top notch. Ever since I started Accutane my face has been dryer than the overcooked chicken Brittany and I attempt every week, but this mask has saved my life. It leaves your skin real glowy and smells so good you could eat it.. I wouldn’t do that though.

I hope you loved this week’s installment once again. Until next time. <3

It’s a favorites kind of day

It’s a favorites kind of day

Howdy partners,

Not super sure why I started out with that intro but I will not be taking it back now. Today does not have any sort of western theme, but the greeting felt right. I hope everyone’s Wednesday is going well, and hopefully someone out there has nicer weather than I am experiencing right now. The storms are out of control, and although I am a fan of summer rain, this weather does not make for good/easy to take blog pics.

But anywayyyy you all probably don’t care too much about my sob story, and instead came here to read about some of my favorites, or maybe you just came here to see pictures of my shining face.. you don’t have to tell me! Buuuuttt today’s favorite things are real real good, let me tell ya.

First on the list is POLKA DOTS! They are the pattern of the season and will most definitely be carrying into summer as well. They are super cute and fun to mix n’ match with other patterns and colors. 🙂 And like uber cute in this set form from Nomad Boutique. (Here are some other cute polka dot numbers also. :))

And the other two favorites are the holy grail of all hair products. Number 1 is the dry shampoos of all dry shampoos by IGK. There are three levels of this brand of dry shampoos, and this particular one is the highest level and I swear to you that it covers up 4th day oily hair like it’s nothing. I don’t even know how it does it, but it’s magic. And then next is the Ouai texturizing spray. As a girl who has flat and straight hair naturally, I need all of the help I can get and this spray does just that. It gives ya that volume you need to take on your day and be the hot, sassy mama you are. 🙂

So dear friends I hope your Wednesday is extra fantastic and you have some sunshine on this rainy day. 🙂
