Summer Celebrating

Leave a comment

Hoorah! Today is officially the first day of summer! Summer brings many new things. From popsicles outside to switching up your everyday routine, summer calls more many new additions. I am going to try to help you all out with some of your new additions. As you know, I am newly subscribed to Birchbox and I am super excited. What I love about the site is how they test every product and bring you only the best of the best. Below are some of the products that, I agree, are truely the best, but also below are going to be some products that I am hoping to try out. Enjoy, and, happy first day of summer! Spend the evening outside or hit up the beach, just enjoy those 14 hours and 37 minutes of day light!

products we both love…

Juicy Couture – Juicy Couture Fragrance : a chic, fragrance with top notes of watermelon, passion fruit, and mandarin combine with bright whiffs of marigold and green apple. Rose, vanilla, and yummy caramel undertones anchor the scent. Perfect for everyday or a night out, this will definitely be  your go to fragrance for all your seasons and events.

Larabar : with 9 ingredients max per bar, forget those fillers and preservatives and learn that a delicious snack can be all natural…even with flavors like carrot cake, apple pie, chocolate chip cookie dough, and peanut butter cookie (my favorite).

Luna Bar : if you haven’t noticed already, I am obsessed with bars. These yummy ones pack tons of essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs all under 200 calories and with delicious flavors (i adore the chocolate peppermint stick and the chocolate dipped coconut).

Viva la Juicy Fragrance : a head turning floral and fruity fragrance that will without-a-doubt make you feel more than glamourous. Top notes of wild berries and sweet mandarin flirt with lady-like middle notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, and gardenia. Warm base notes of caramel, amber, vanilla, sandalwood, and praline hover beneath it all.

products i hope to try soon (in my box)…

Boscia Green Tea Blotting Papers : these all natural blotting papers soak up excess oil and sweat without smearing your makeup. Perfect for girls on the go (or us dancers).

Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream : forget the coffee and get up already! Luckily for you, with  the addition of this eye cream the fast-absorbing formula minimizes dark circles, deflates puffiness, and boosts hydration.

The Balm – Stainiac : this two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives us a natural, understated flush and helps us get out the door faster. The gel formula looks dark in the tube but delivers a sheer tint. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink, Prom Queen is a lovely rose pink, and Homecoming Queen is a dewy peach.

Yes to Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes : these sweet-smelling towelettes are designed to a) remove makeup, b) cleanse skin or c) moisturize.

Benefit High Beam : a perpetual award winner, Benefit’s High Beam subtly highlights and enhances your features — a necessity when you want to draw a little extra attention.

Jouer Lip Enhancer : it’s deeply moisturizing, smells amazing, and delivers the prettiest hint of sheer pink color. The best part? It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and boosts your lips naturally without that annoying tingly sensation found in so many other plumpers.
