Every Woman’s 3 Summer Essentials

Summer just might be my favorite season. The days are longer, flowers have bloomed, trees are full of gorgeous green leaves, and there just seems to be SOOOOO much more to do. Summer is also my favorite in terms of fashion. I live for sun dresses, sandals, and all white ensembles. I realize not everyone shares my enthusiasm for the summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t slay everyday during the warmer months. The following three things are essential for every woman wanting to look good all summer long! (more…)

The 3 Hottest Summer 2016 Swimsuit Trends

I’m not sure where all of you are reading this from, but if you are in St. Louis you know that we have been seeing temperatures in the 90’s the past week or so. Seeing these high temperatures so early let’s me know that we are in for an extremely hot summer. Lucky for me, I’m a babysitter to two kids who basically think they’re fish (and their family just bought a house with a pool) so I will be spending most of the summer near the water. If I’m being totally honest, I probably won’t be doing a ton of swimming, but that won’t stop me from shopping the hottest summer 2016 swimsuit trends. While shopping for myself, I found some amazing swimsuit trends I knew I had to share with all of you!

Royal Review of Kylie Lip Kits + GIVEAWAY

Alright royals, it’s confession time. I am a Kardashian-Jenner fan. I pretty much love anything they associate themselves with and I’m convinced that Khloe would make a better Presidential candidate than the two front runners we currently have.

When the youngest of the clan, King Kylie, decided to launch Kylie Cosmetics, I knew I had to eventually get my hands on one of the always in demand Kylie Lip Kits. (more…)

3 Ways to Smooth Skin that Don’t Include a Razor

Summer officially starts in just a few weeks and that means us ladies will be showing off more skin. We’ll have a greater need and desire for smooth skin. We all want our bikini lines, under arms, and legs to be as smooth as a baby’s bottom, but if you’re anything like me you dread having to pull out your razor blade and shaving cream. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few things about shaving I can appreciate. It’s inexpensive, not terribly messy, and I can do it right at home myself without making an appointment. Unfortunately, shaving tends to irritate my sensitive skin causing razor bumps and in grown hairs. Also, shaving doesn’t keep my skin smooth very long. I swear every time I shave my legs, two days later they’re prickly. For these reasons, I’ll be trying three alternatives to shaving in hopes of finding a better solution for longer lasting smooth skin. (more…)

GUEST POST: 5 Tips on How to Be a Well Dressed Man

You all don’t get to see The Boy very often because he’s usually behind the camera taking pictures of me. While he may never admit it out loud, I know that he takes great pride in his appearance. One of the many things I love about him is his effortless fashion sense and the secret joy I know he feels when someone compliments his ensemble. Being that I love fashion and value his opinion, I’m always asking him about my own outfits and striking up conversations about the latest trends in men’s fashion. It was during one of these talks that we both agreed the men of 2016 could use a little guidance when getting dressed and I thought who better than to help them out than my super fly honey. (more…)
