Jonesing for Summer

That season is almost upon us!  With the heat this past week, it could be argued that it already is, but I like to count a few consecutive days without the threat of thunderstorms before I commit wholly to the summer.  But, in preparation, I've assembled some goodies that will totally make for a great summer look.

Perfect Summer Prep and Wear

You've got to keep your hair out of your face if you want to rock a summer glow!  I love this simple headband from BCBG, adds a little glam without being too dressed up for casual beach time.  Of course, you've gotta protect your skin, so lay on the sunscreen and go for an ultimate self-tanner.  I've had my eye on the No Sun Tanner by Perricone MD for quite some time, and I'm hoping it will join my summer kit soon.  Keep those lips moisturized with a fruity lip balm, and don't forget to exfoliate your legs to keep 'em looking nice and healthy!  My favorite scrub is Soap & Glory Flake Away Sugar Scrub.  Tough enough to do the job, but soft enough not to irritate, plus it smells exceptional.

To jazz things up, I've been eyeing the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick.  Long-lasting and hydrating, with a big punch of color, I think it would look stunning with a tan.  Swipe on some black mascara, accent those nails with a summer orange like Nina by Julep, and you're good to go!

What look are you going for this summer?
