Favorite Summer Finds and Summer Gift Ideas

It would be fair to say that I get really excited about each season of the year. I love all the bright colors of summer and fun products that give off the summer vibe. Here are some of my favorite summer items this far.  Any of these poroducts would make a great summer or beach gift!

Trying to drink lots of water this summer is so much easier when it’s out of a super cute personalized yeti! Plus it keeps my water cool for hours! My children each have their own yeti too!

Great lighting makes everyone look better. Becca’s shimmering skin perfector does just that! The shimmer reflects the light on your face just right giving off a soft glow. Love this!

Having seasonal products throughout my home literally makes my heart happy.  In my opinion the summer wallflowers are the best! They make me feel like I am back in my happy place, Hawaii! I also update all my bathrooms with summer soaps! Many of my guests have commented on how good my home smells when they come visit.

See the previous blog post for the details on this Supergoop sunscreen setting powder. But it’s another one of my favorite summer products.

I will honestly never forget the day (like 5 years ago) that I first set foot in a Soma store.  It was love at first feel! When I am at home I love nothing better than to feel cozy but I don’t want to look or feel sloppy.  I can best describe soma as chic and cozy! I go to soma at the beginning of every season to fuel my seasonal fix. So when I found these beach themed pj’s I was more than thrilled.

This year I converted from self tanning lotions to foam. The foam dries fast and is easy to apply.  The secret to a streak free tan is a mit! Another benefit of the mit is that you don’t get the tanner all over your hands so clean up is easy.  The two foam tanners below are my favorite and for different reasons.

Rodan and fields sunless tanner goes on easy and the tan looks light and natural. The dry time is also really quick. Because there is no instant bronzer ,in this brand, I like to put this on the night before because it takes a few hours for the tan to shown up.

St.Tropez bronzing mousse doesn’t dissipoint with its summer glow. This tan is a bit darker than Rodan and Fields. St. Tropez has an instant bronzer so it’s easy to see where you applied it and you don’t have to wait a few hours to have that nice summer glow.
