Yay!!! It's officially summer!!! My favorite season! Since it's the second day of summer! I though I would share with you some of my summer essentials!
Since I'm a summer baby! My birthday is August 4th! I love the hot weather! With the high temperature it is really important to stay hydrated! Which brings me to my first essential!
Obviously we all know that water is an essential on an every day biases! But in the summer it is crucial to stay extra hydrated! With the high temperatures and being outside more in the sun. You obviously sweat more and lose more water in your body. Therefore, it's really really important to stay hydrated in the summer!
Another important essential for me in the summer (and year round too) is SPF! I cannot stress enough how important SPF is for you! Especially in the summer! With the sun being closer to the earth, the sun raises becoming stronger you're more likely to get tanned! Which we all want, but we all most be careful with!
With that being said! I have tried my fair share of SPF, but I have to say that my most favorite one that I have yet to come across is this one from Supergoop!
This is the Supergoop - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40! This stuff is awesome! I have never tried anything quite like it! First off, the constancy of this SPF is a clear gel and all you need to use is a dime size! Since it's a gel it will glide over your whole face and neck, giving you full protection from the sun! Also this has no smell, so if you have really sensitive skin this will definitely work! Also it acts great as a primer for under your makeup! Like it says it's 'Unseen' so it doesn't have any white case or anything like that! Plus it sinks into the pretty much instantly!
If you check out the whole Supergoop brand they have such inovaitve products when it comes to SPF!! They pretty much have everything for your sun protection needs! I really highly recommend! FIVE STAR!!
Speaking of protection! In the past I wasn't really such a big sunglass wearer (is that a real word?!). But, recently every time I go outside when the sun is out. I notice that it's really hard for me to see. I feel like the more I get older the more sensitive my eyes get, because latterly when I go out I'm like blind and my eyes get teary. So a few years ago my husband got me these Ray-Bans as a gift and I wear them every time I go out when the sun is shining bright!
Hahaha, ok one more thing about protection! Like I said before about the high temperatures and being out side and sweating more! You're more likely to smell a little bit more then usual. I know this isn't a pleasant thing to talk about, but if you are looking for a new deodorant then I really recommend this one! I did show this, well not this exact one! But, I showed the one that I used up in my last empties! I have been using Suave deodorants for the longest time! They are so good! This one is the Sauve - Everlasting Sunshine Invisible Solid! I don't really care about the scents in deodorant that much. So I just picked up this one because I just really need a new deodorant since my other fell apart! But these 24 hour ones really do stay on for 24 hours! I use it every day!
I can't remember the last time I owned a pair of strappy sandals for the summer. I usually wear flats, flip flops or Birkenstock style kind of sandals for the summer. This year I decided that I'm finally going to get a pair of strappy sandals for the summer! So, I ran into Payless Shoe Source a few weeks ago and picked these up! My feet couldn't be more happier this summer! I really recommend getting a pair of strappy sandals for the summer! You're feet will get to breath and you won't have to try to keep them on because they are stapled to your feet! Win win!
Ok, I couldn't write this post without mentioning a little beauty in it!
Since I don't wear much makeup a lot in the summer because of the heat. I like to still add something that makes me sparkle a little! The way I achieve that is by applying this Kani - Moon Milk Shimmering Body Oil! Dude!! First off this smells amazing! Second off! This is just fun to wear! I got this in one of my Petit Vour boxes few months ago. Probably like more in the winter time. So I have been saving this to be used and I finally get a chance to! If you ever just want some sparkle to your life! Then apply this anywhere on your body and it gives you this nice shin and a little glitter to your body! Such a fun product to use!
With the days (along with shabbat!) being longer and more people chilling out at the beach or in the comfort of their own bed! What a better way then to spend your relaxing time reading a book! If you are looking for a book that will take you to another place and take you into a different city then I highly recommended We'll Always Have Paris by Jennifer Coburn. I did do a review on this book last year if you want to check that out here! But I'm really thinking of reading this book again this summer!
Well, that is it for my summer essentials! What are your summer essentials?! I would love to hear! Leave them in the comment section bellow!
I hope you enjoyed!
Have wonderful day!
