Summer 2014 Essentials

Summer has arrived for several people and is quickly approaching for the rest of us.  Even if you are working through the sunny months, that does not mean you have to miss out completely.  As a Floridian, I am spoiled by the ability to take day-trips to the beach and Disney World.  For those of you a little further from sand, make your own full on the pool deck with hip music, cool friends, and sweet snacks.  Here are a few essentials you might need (or want) this summer.

Summer 2014 Essentials

TOMS retro glasses / Lilly Pulitzer tote bag / Sunscreen makeup / MAC Cosmetics lipstick / Jack Rogers sandals

Why I picked these items:

Jack Rogers sandals - These sturdy shoes are adorable and can be the perfect accessory to your favorite summer outfit.  Jack Rogers' offers a large collection of colors and styles.  Can't find the color combination to match your new bathing suit? lets you order a custom pair, you can even add your monogram.

M.A.C. Lipstick - Summer is the perfect time to experiment with new make-up and fashion choices.  M.A.C. always makes amazing products, and their lipstick is amazing.  Don't believe me?  Read some real and honest reviews about this product on influenster.

TOMS Sunglasses - These sunglasses are functional, classy, and, with each purchase, provide one blessed individual with eye care.  It always feels good to share with people less fortunate than yourself and TOMS makes it even easier!

Lilly Pulitzer Resort Tote - Like everything Lilly Pulitzer creates, I became obsessed with this bag the minute I laid my eyes on it.  It is perfect for road trips, days at the beach, or holding your extra summer reading books at the pool.  This bag fits perfectly on your shoulder and includes a small zip pocket to keep your valuables from getting lost.  

Mary Kay SPF CC Cream Foundation - Everyone needs to protect their skin and Mary Kay includes SPF into their amazing CC Cream Foundation.  This product is easy to apply and lasts all day.  Looking for a Mary Kay consultant?  Let me know, I know a few!

What products are you looking forward to using this summer?

What's in my Bag - Make-Up UPDATED

Like every woman, my tastes in clothing, make-up, music, movies, and everything else tend to change year after year.  One of the largest changes I have experienced came after my Mary-Kay bridal shower.  My maid of honor wanted to do something special and unique for my shower and she picked the perfect thing.  I always thought Mary-Kay was for older women who just wanted to look younger.  Boy was I wrong!  The Mary-Kay make-up I wore on my wedding day was perfect!  Everyone kept complimenting me on my make-up and it lasted through the night. Since my wedding I have been wearing Mary-Kay make-up and using their Botanical Effects Skin Care line.  My skin has never felt better!

Here are a few of my favorite products:

My review of each product individually will be posted soon!

Please leave a comment letting me know which make-up brands and products you are crazy about.  I would love to give them a try!
