Summer brings forth plenty of opportunities to experiment with new makeup trends and colors. Whether it’s glowing skin, sultry eyes, or a perfect pout, I’m always ready to tackle it all. One thing I’ve been really into is lip color! What’s great about lips this season are the different finishes. I don’t think there’s anything prettier than glossy lips with a hint of color, but I can also get on board with a fiery matte hue. The perfect pout can be challenging to pull off in humid weather when I’m constantly reaching for water or sipping the occasional margarita. But that’s not stopping me from enjoying the full range of gorgeous, colorful hues this season! Luckily, Clarins has us covered with two long-lasting lip colors I’ve been obsessed with!

Swimsuit season is finally setting in with Memorial Day weekend only another week away. That means pools and waterparks are officially opening up – and beaches are becoming a common destination. If you haven’t started shopping for your summer swim gear yet, don’t fret because there’s still time! One of my new favorite brands for all things swim-related is Athleta because they literally have the best swimsuits for every body type. With a wide range of pieces that flatter different shapes and sizes, you’ll feel empowered and confident in no time!
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but my spring and summer has been packed with trips! I love visiting new places and exploring the unfamiliar but the downside to it is ALWAYS packing! I have a strong urge to overpack every. single. time. Whether it’s clothes, shoes, or my beauty bag, my luggage is brimming to the top. My week-long trip to France really challenged me to pare back and only take the essentials! Since skincare and makeup goodies tend to be my biggest battle (and the heaviest to pack), I wanted to share a basic packing list that caters to sunny, gorgeous weather and perfect skin. Read on to find out the basic skincare products to pack for long-haul trips and why I always pack eos products!
Considering how many time that we’ve stayed in Sandestin, I can’t believe I’m just now putting together a Sandestin travel guide! We’ve been coming and staying here for YEARS. Between weddings, both friend and family vacations and my dad’s annual business conference trips, I’d like to think I’ve done it all and have some pretty good pointers including why staying at the Hilton Sandestin is the perfect hub for every type of activity. I’m sharing all of my favorite things to do if you’re planning a summer trip to these white sandy beaches (the MOST beautiful you’ll ever see.)
Today’s post about gift ideas for busy moms was inspired by my sisters-in-law, Aubrie and Peyton! Believe me when I say that they do their fair share of running around (and running their households) on a daily basis. So I thought how perfect would it be to gift them with the perfect comfy shoe to wear when they’ve got their hands full and their feet on the ground running. I’m always saying how the Sofft Somers slip-on is my favorite sneaker (no really, see this post and this post too), so I gave them each their very first pair as an early Mother’s Day gift!
