As we've made it into summer, I have narrowed down what have been my go-to summer items that I haven't been able to do summer without!
Bathing Suits from Asos: Bathing suits are hard to find, especially when you’re looking online. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered online just to not love them and be stuck not being able to exchange or return them. This is how I fell in love with Asos, they have so many styles, so many mix, and match options, usually free shipping, (fast shipping) and you can return them if you don’t like them. (hallelujah!) My body shape calls for high cut (super important) high waisted bottoms which I simply search on the site to find styles I like. Not to mention they are so affordable you don’t feel bad throwing a few in the bag.
SPF from SunBum: SunBum has been my go-to sunscreen for me, the hubs, and the babes for going on 3 summers now! It not only protects you from harmful UVA/UVB rays while enriching your skin with Vitamin E (an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging) it smells amazing (imagine the scent of summer bottled) and works even better. The entire fam gives it double thumbs up. Every time I’m at the store I notice more and more products that they’re coming out with which I need to start to try, until then my current go to’s are the Sunscreen Spray SPF 70 and Face SPF 50.
Summer Hats from TheLifestyledCo: Hats are my thing. Like, throw a hat on a bam you just turned it up a notch. So it was only natural that I was on the search for the perfect summer hat. Well, look no further! TheLifeStyledCo is my favorite interior design firm and boutique that just does everything so perfectly right. They feature the cutest summer hats that are perfect for every summer outing. Let's just say I'm a tad bit obsessed.
The Perfect Summer Tan: If you know me, you know rocking a killer sunless tan is my confidence-boosting secret. Since the pool and ocean can strip my spray tans I had to find some backups that would keep me looking bronzed + beautiful all summer long. You’ve heard me rave about the 1 Hour Violet Mousse, (my 2020 favorite product, hands down) but we now have another product to add to the list. Evolv. Daily Glo Moisturizer is enriched with tea tree oil to keep your skin hydrated and extend the life of your spray tan. I love applying this product after the shower daily because it gives you a hint of color with every application. (Can we say tan all summer long?!)
Summer Cocktail Winner: Truly Wild Berry So you know my margarita loving self had to find a skinny cocktail in order to be able to still fit in my swimsuit. However! I had tried EVERY SINGLE “skinny” cocktail out there and just couldn’t do it. (yuck! I know, I'm picky) Until Truly Wild Berry poured over extra ice with a freshly squeezed lime on top came in my life. I’m not saying it’s a margarita, but mama now has a light and refreshing cocktail I can enjoy without the guilt. Score!
These are a handful of my top summer must-haves that I have fallen in love with, share yours with me, I’d love to hear!
