A Beautiful Summer Glow!

Though it is not officially the middle of Summer, whenever July 15th rolls around, I feel like it is the middle of the Summer. And it depresses me.

I am so into my self-tanning routine, and I am pretty bronzed and looking good, if I do say so myself. But my cheeks needed a little pick me up for a beautiful Summer glow. Enter two of Lancome's cheek products that have my cheeks really looking pretty cheeky - and glowing beautifully!

Star Bronzer Poudre Sôleil Sun-Kissed Bronzing Powder ($34.50). This powder bronzer is available in five shades. For my cheek look, I am using Bronze Terre.

On top of a sweep of Bronze Terre over my cheeks and nose, I apply Blush Subtil Shimmer Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush ($28.50) in Coral Heat to the apples of my cheeks.




Coral Heat leaves a soft shimmer to my cheeks and adds the perfect glow. The blush is also available in Shimmer Mocha Havana, if you opt for a deeper cheek shade.


Must Have Weekender Kit.

Are you getting away for just a few days or for the weekend this Summer? It is a pain to pack all of your favorite essentials, so a great kit is a must.
The Sephora FACE Weekend Set contains your must-have 3 step solution:
1.69 oz FACE Foaming Cleanser
1.69 oz FACE Moisturizing Gel Cream
1.69 oz FACE Refreshing Toner

No overnight bag should be without it!

Both Empowering and Refreshing.

Are you as hot as I am? I know I am not the only one looking for different ways to feel cool and refreshed.

Philosophy has some empowering products that will leave us both cool and refreshed. All you have to do is jump in the shower and use these:


Empowermint Body Mask ($25), Hot Salt Scrub ($25), and Body Butter ($25) will not only make you feel refreshed, it will instantly cool your skin, leaving it almost tingly. And I don't even think I need to mention how hydrating Philosophy's products are, so you know how soft and smooth your skin will feel after using them.

Check these empowering products at, Nordstrom, QVC, or Sephora.
