Summer Checklist


I am so ready for summer! Are you? Here’s a little checklist to make sure you’re all set! You’ll need…


A signature scent: I associate different times in my life with the perfume I was wearing at the time. It may sound silly, but scent can be a powerful memory trigger. My mom bought my sister and me two mini Morocco Orchid & Pink Amber perfumes from Bath & Body Works and I fell in love! It’s fresh, sweet, vanilla, but also a little floral. I am definitely going to get the full size.

A sun-kissed glow: I’m not huge on self tanners but I do like this Beach Glow Body Lotion, also from Bath & Body Works. This new scent, Oahu Coconut Sunset, is amazing. It is tinted tan and has a little shimmer, perfect when you want to look a little bronzed without committing to a self tanner.

A white smile: This NYX lipgloss is blue, but don’t be afraid! It looks pretty clear when it’s applied but has just a tiny hint of blue to make your teeth appear whiter! It looks great on it’s own or perfect paired over you favorite lipstick.


Flip Flops: I love Havaiana flip flops. I’ve never had the strap pop out like with other flip flops, and they last for more than a summer. If you have a Nordstrom Rack around, they are half the price there and often times you can find them at TJ Maxx and Marshalls for cheap.

A do-it all dress: You need a dress you can wear with a bun and flip flops or a statement necklace and wedges. My dress is from Forever 21 and was only $12.80. This is a great Maxi dress option for only $14.80.

Denim Shorts: It’s not summer without denim shorts! I love this pair from Gap or this pair from Target.

Sunglasses: My gold rimmed aviators are from Target.

Now all you need to do is make a summer playlist and you’re all set!
