Must Haves

It has been crazy hot lately and this has been a lifesaver!  This is so refreshing when you come in from the heat to spritz on your face and neck to cool down.  I also love putting this on before moisturizer or facial oil so that it locks in extra moisture.  I've been using this since the winter and somehow love it more each month.  Definitely a must have all the time for me!

This is amazing for moisturizing your skin and helping to keep oil production in order.  I like to put this on at night after washing my face and spraying it with the rose water from above.  I have crazy dry skin and this really helps to keep it hydrated, but never clogs my pores.

This probably seems like an odd 'Must Have' since it is a cream for diaper rash.  I've had eczema since I was a kid and used to get it all over my body, however as I've gotten older I'll just get patches of it from time to time on different spots.  The most recent eczema patch I've had was on my face and because of its location I couldn't use my typical prescription cream so my doctor recommended this.  I've been putting it on every night now for a few weeks and the eczema spot is almost gone!

Lately I've been letting my hair air dry and this is my secret for beachy waves like in this post.  Growing up I had stick straight hair and it finally has a nice texture to it when I let it air dry and this spray really brings out the waves.  I wash and condition my hair like normal, brush it out with this, add this and this, then add the sea salt spray, and let my hair air dry completely.  In addition to creating dreamy waves it also smells amazing and won't dry out your hair!

I've been wearing this romper on repeat lately.  I wore it to NYC this past week and wore it several times before that.  It's super comfy and very versatile, which makes me want to wear it all the time!  It's also on trend and keeps me cool in the sweltering temperatures we've been experiencing.  I'm sure you'll see it make an appearance on Instagram a few more times this summer!

These are my go to shoes when I know I will be doing a lot of walking.  They're very comfortable and never rub the backs of my ankles (or leave blisters) like traditional Converse sneakers do.  They also look super cute and are on point with the white sneaker trend.  You can see them in my post from my New York day trip, too.

I always like to use all natural lip balms since there is a strong chance you're going to ingest some of it.  This organic lip balm is made with beeswax and natural oils to soothe and moisturize lips.  It sort of melts onto your lips when you apply it, which feels so good.  I love it so much that I have the peppermint in my purse and keep the lemon lime by my bed!

I've been trying to remember to put this on every night before bed to combat the dark circles under my eyes.  In all honesty I haven't noticed much of an improvement yet, but I want to give it a really good try before I decide on whether I like it or not.  My goal this month is to put it on at least once every day so I can see how it works.

This is my Mary Poppins bag.  It fits everything I need for a day to day basis and is perfect for travel.  It's roomy, very lightweight, and looks adorable.  This bag is a wardrobe staple for me and well worth its price.

I have these earrings in four different colors and wear them constantly.  Lately I have been wearing the clear and silver ones I have the most because they look good with everything.  They're an easy earring to throw on with every outfit and add a little extra something to a look.  They're also really comfortable and I usually forget I have them on!
