Cute Summer Essentials

Summer is in full swing! We’ve been enjoying the last few weeks since summer school ended. I took a week off just to enjoy and not worry about anything. After that one week, I realized I needed to get back into cleaning and organizing everything. Since last year changed everything, I’ve been using this time to get caught up on doctor and dentist appointments. Now, it’s time to explore cute summer essentials!

Find your glow

Your perfect look starts with your skincare. After cleansing, you want to use a toner such as the Press & Glow from Medik8. Since I received the toner, I’ve incorporated it in with my other Medik8 products

Medik8 Press & Glow

Before even cleansing, you can remove your makeup with Medik8’s Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil. Then follow up with your Press & Glow, serums, moisturizers, and retinol if you’re using it. 

I use a few pumps of the Press & Glow for my neck and face twice a day! My skin is looking bright and feels smooth. The toner does not dry out my skin or feel sticky, so I can easily apply my serums and moisturizers without issues. 

Lips & Cheeks

When it comes to lips, I am more of a lip balm and sometimes lip gloss kinda gal! I was sent the Lip Pencil Plus in Carnation Pink and the Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic

Merle Norman Lip Pencil Plus in Carnation Pink

Both products are beautiful and I ended up giving them to my neighbor who loves makeup just as much as I do. She immediately tried the Lip pencil! I love that it’s one versatile product as a lip color and lip liner! I knew I wouldn’t use the lip pencil, so I am glad my neighbor will use it! 

Merle Norman Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic

The Lasting Cheekcolor in Mauve Magic is a beautiful color. I like that these products are perfect for all skin tones. It goes on silky and smooth, fade-resistant, and blends so easily! 

Eyes

I am always looking for new eye shadows to try! Also, I have never tried the Merle Norman brand, so I was really excited to try their shadows and shadow sticks! 

Merle Norman Eye shadow

I am so excited to receive three shades including Sky, Orchid (limited edition), and Desert Bronze (limited edition). Of course, all three colors are beautiful and I think they work perfectly with my skin tone. I can attest that the colors last, go on smooth, and stay in place all day, even through my sweaty workouts! They are every crease/smudge-resistant! 

Desert Bronze is my favorite color as it is a neutral and it adds a little sparkle to my look! Sky and Orchid are perfect when I want a beautiful color to my look! 

I was also sent shadow sticks which match perfectly with the three eye shadows I was sent! 

Merle Norman Shadow Stick

I was sent limited edition shades in Misty, Denim, and Bubbly! All three colors are so pretty and last all day, even through my sweaty workouts! I also like that they blend easily when needed. 

Misty matches with Orchid.

Denim matches with Sky. 

Bubbly matches with Desert Bronze.

I use the colors together and create my own look!

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer
Beauty Brite Disclosure

What’s that old saying? It’s the dog days of Summer! I’m a dog person plain and simple. Growing up I remember us always having a dog, and as soon as I moved out on my own. It’s a memory I wanted my children to share also. So let’s talk about some of my favorite pup products and how they will help you in beat those dog days of summer!

Recently our beloved dog Twinkie passed at the old age of 12, I got her when I was 18 and she was one of the most amazing dogs ever. When she passed at the end of 2019 my children were heartbroken. I wasn’t really ready to get another dog just yet but my children started asking for another puppy and in May of 2020 our sweet Arthas was born. We just recently brought him home and couldn’t be more excited to have paws in the family again. Arthas will actually start training to be an emotional support pup for my 6-year-old Ansley who has several anxiety disorders.

Emotional Support Animal

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer!

What do you need when you have a new pup? New toys for him to love! Now with Pupcycle, you can have them shipped right to your front door. Pupcycle is the first Eco-Friendly dog toy box with fun goodies that your pup is sure to be over the moon for. What is my favorite thing about this box ( well it actually comes in a 100% recyclable bag )? It’s that there is no monthly subscription! This is what has turned me off on so many other dog boxes it because it’s another added expense each month but with Pupcycle you order when YOU want.

So what comes inside the bag? Arthas’ favorite toy is the plushie by far. Perfect for tiny chewing teeth. We also got a hide a treat toy, and a squeaky toy, both of which he’s growing into. Help the planet, and help your pup have fun and get your very one Pupcycle box, and be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram for more information!

Bug be gone.

With Summer and with getting a dog that means you are outside a lot more. Being outside brings those dreaded fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. We live close to a wooded area so we get all kinds of creepy crawlies. Don’t worry because Wondercide can take care of those pests. These amazing products kill on contact and keep them at bay. It’s a great choice because it’s safe to use around pets and your family.

Wondercide

My favorite items that came in my Wondercide package was the Scent Sampler Flea & Tick Pack. This sample comes with four different scents to make sure you love the product you pick for your pack! My favorite scent is the Lemongrass Spray With a clean crisp smell it leaves your home refreshed while keeping those fleas and ticks away. It’s proven to start working in just 2 minutes.

Flea and Tick home spray

Not only is this product safe for pets but it’s safe for home and use for your family. Great for outdoor play for your little ones, made with all-natural ingredients, I don’t have to worry about chemical contact with my kids. Are you interested in getting your very own Wondercide products? Be sure to visit their Website, Facebook, and Instagram.

Seeing the joy that our new pup has brought to my kid’s lives is something that every parent is thankful for. Since getting Arthas my children have that little part of their lives back that they were missing when Twinkie passed away. I hope that you love these pet-friendly products from Pupcycle and Wondercide as much as our family does, and helps beat those dog days of summer!

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary

The beach is one of my very favorite places in the world to be. So, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to skin care products I love it when I find a quality line of lotions, bath products, and other personal care choices that not only nourish and care for my skin but also can transport me right down to the water’s edge with a breezy, tropical scent.

Summer Soft Skin: No Beach Necessary - Nubian Heritage Mango Butter Collection
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nubian Heritage is one of a few favorite brands when it comes to both keeping my skin looking and feeling great, as well as providing a nice variety of scents that I love. Our sense of smell is central to everything we do from preparing delicious meals to recalling nostalgic personal memories to promoting calm and relaxing atmospheric ambiance in our surroundings. It’s no wonder that companies that produce essential oils and diffusers, candles, potpourri, perfume and cologne, air fresheners, etc. are such a big business. We all use these products to invoke a response from within to find peace and calm in our lives.
