Summer Splurges

While shopping this weekend I got some new summer things to brag blog about! I love love love everything about summer – the sunshine, the beach, the smell of sunscreen, poolside cocktails, and frozen yogurt!

Here’s a quick look at what I came home with this weekend:

Burberry Check Trim Bikini – Summer always calls for a new swimsuit! I’ve been anticipating getting a new suit since Christmas and finally found one I love! It’s a white 2-piece with a plaid trim by Burberry (and no, that is not a picture of me, that is the model from their website). I love that it’s white, but am hesitant to wear it to the beach where it could get ruined. I may have to designate this suit for pool use only and wear last year’s black suit when I go to the beach!

Korres Watetmelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer – In the summer I hate wearing heavy foundation and was in need of a tinted moisturizer. The Korres makeup line is one of my favorites – their all-natural products are environmentally friendly and contain natural extracts with antioxidants to keep your skin healthy. This tinted moisturizer is SPF 30 and contains antioxidant-rich watermelon extract to counteract free-radical damage. It is water-resistant and sweat-proof to hold up in the heat and humidity of the summer and is made without synthetic chemicals or dyes.

Mark Jacobs Daisy Rollbar – I love everything Mark Jacobs, including the new Daisy perfume. This perfume has a fresh, floral, summer scent; a mix of strawberry, violet , ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, jasmine, musk, vanilla, and white woods. Not to mention I bought the cute travel size rollbar to carry around in my purse or beach bag this summer!

Laura Mercier HydraTint SPF 15 – In the heat and humidity of the summer the last thing I want to do is wear sticky lip gloss or lipstick that is going to melt off my face. So I bought this tinted lip-balm in a peachy nude color to keep my lips moisturized and protected from the sun all summer long. I like that it doesn’t have a potent smell or taste, just a hint of mint and orange flavor. It contains shea butter, grapeseed oil, and green tea extracts to keep your lips moisturized, so whether I am at work or at the beach I can keep my lips looking fresh!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love makeup and that that I am playing with fire the minute I step into Sephora. But all things considered, I had such a fun time splurging there this weekend and am very pleased with the purchases I walked away with! Now that I am all geared up, let summer begin!

What’s you favorite thing to shop for in the summer?
