I know I've procrastinated on this...


Eek! Swimsuit season is definitely here! I still haven't bought one but I've kept my eye on this one from Victoria's Secret for a while. I'm a bit paranoid of online shopping especially when it regards things like bras and swimwear where fit is essential. My swimwear dilemma involves having a fuller bust but with a 34 band size and a relatively small bottom half. So if I really had the urge to go swim at a topless beach, I'd have no issues shopping for swimwear off the clearance rack at Target. *sigh* So my options are somewhat sparse. I also liked this brown and turquoise tankini but I like the metal hardware on my first choice better. Oh, the decisions.

I do need a swimsuit soon though because my new place does have a hot tub and my fellow housemate is throwing a hot tub party very soon!

Chic, Cropped, and Rocking Hair!

Last week while perusing my local Barnes & Noble, I checked out the July issue of ELLE. This issue features an article titled "The New Radicals" which features the next direction of hair. Short and swingy bobs, pixie cuts, and brighter hues are the next big thing! I've seen a few ladies rocking the platinum blonde pixie cut as of late but I'll stick to my golden swingy bob. The best part is that these styles relatively low maintenance except for keeping your color up if you try a bold shade that's not as close to your natural color. So summer is the perfect time to have your stylist break out the scissors and SNIP-SNIP! Besides, it will grow back and why not mix things up a bit and try out a new style.

Summer Skin Essentials

Summer is the season for waterproof mascara but removing the stuff at the end of the day can be a bit of a hassle because no matter how much you wash your face, there's little black bits of mascara goop stuck to your lashes. However, I've discovered that Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is to the rescue for stubborn makeup removal! This stuff literally melts away mascara. I'd reccomend using the balm first and then wash your face with your cleanser of choice to remove the filmy residue.

I've also become addicted to Evian's Mineral Water Spray which is great for setting my makeup in the morning and to freshen up throughout the day. This product definitely has made a huge improvement in my skin the past few days and I don't look as tired while my makeup holds up a bit better!

Finally, don't forget the sunscreen! I love Clinique's City Block line and I've been using it for years. I can't say enough good things about it!

Stay cool and fresh my friends!!!
