Summer is my favorite time of the year! Okay next to football season 🙂 Each year I usually latch on to certain products that I cannot do without. This year I have found my favs and decided to share them with you!

1). The first thing I cannot be without are my Jack Rogers sandals. I know…such a cliche thing for a Southern gal to say. But seriously! I love these sandals so much. I like how their certain look let you know they are JR without a tacky logo on them. Last year I really fixated on my Birkenstocks and while they are still a favorite of mine- these babies took the cake this summer.

2). The next thing I am loving are bright liquid lipsticks. This one is from Stila Cosmetics and I cannot get enough of the bold pop of color. Liquid lipsticks are all the rage this season. I like them, but some leave your lips feeling dry. This liquid lipstick feels great on my lips and doesn’t crease. It’s a total hit for me.

3). Something else I am totally loving this summer is sea salt/ beach spray. It is great for throwing in a beach bag for a quick refresher- especially if you have any natural curl in your hair. I like it because I have super straight and fine hair and spraying this stuff in it gives me some texture. I am in love with this Marc Anthony Beach Waves spray. It is super affordable and smells like an exotic island. Yummmmm 🙂

4). Another thing I am loving is the Laura Geller Baked Gellato Swirl Illuminator.  I think they call it an “illuminator” instead of a “highlight” because it is subtle enough to put all over your face or body. It can also build and be an amazing highlighter. The price is pretty good. I have a travel size, but a full pan is HUGE! At the same time, a lot of highlighters out right now you can generally get for around $40 and they have more than one pan/color.

5). Lastly, I am LIVING for St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse. I kind of had a major breakdown recently when I realized I was getting hives from their gradual tan tinted body lotion. This mousse has been great though and it is definitely my go-to. It gives the perfect summer glow without any nasty uv rays or spray tans. It is amazing. The product is definitely a little pricey, but I reason to myself that I am not having to pay for other pricier methods of tanning so it is worth the splurge.

There you have it! These are all of my summer favorites at the moment! Thanks for reading!
