    When I think of summer, I think of going swimming Whether you're going to the beach or hanging out by the pool, there are definitely some essentials I'd recommend for you to put in your bag. Keep reading for my full list and why they're essentials!
    Summer beauty is the best because I feel like I don't have to wear as much makeup. It's a season to let your skin breathe! It's important to take have a good beauty routine that takes care of your skin in that summer weather.
    Sally Hansen Wax Products - Being in the water means being fresh faced, and I love that! It also means baring more skin - so getting rid of unwanted body hair is a must. Get hair free and be care free! I personally don't like body hair. I feel the most confident when my skin is silky smooth. Sally Hansen Wax Strip Kit for the body is easy to use. Smooth results last up to 8 weeks, and there's no mess and no microwave needed. Before you hit the pool, you can also use the Sally Hansen Microwavable Eyebrow, Face, & Lip Wax Kit to get rid of that unwanted hair. I purchased both of these at my local Walmart. For more information and how to videos, click here.
    Hat/sunglasses - Great to keep the sun out of your eyes and protect you from those sun rays.
    Sunscreen - After waxing, don't let that beautiful skin get burned! Lather up on sunscreen to keep your skin safe.
    Lip Balm -  My lips get easily wind/sun chapped, so lip balm is a necessity for me. Who wants flaky lips, right?!
    A good book/magazine - I love reading poolside. It's so relaxing and a great excuse to catch up on the latest trends or read a good book!
    Towel - this is a no brainer. Take one! ;) 
    Poolside snacks - in case you get hungry. I like nuts, granola bars, or fruit!
    Phone + headphones - Sometimes it's nice to plug in your headphones and listen to some good tunes on the beach!
    Stop by your local Walmart to get yourself Sally Hansen wax products and other essentials for your beach/pool bag!

    Oreo Cookie Inspired

    Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It's always hard to get back to work after a fun filled weekend, but hey. Such is life.

    Today's outfit is one I love (black and white! Simple! Comfy!), but it kind of reminds me of an Oreo cookie. Black with white in the middle. hehe. Now I'm hungry... 

    This white top from Caralase is seriously so soft and flattering! I love the ruffled hem at the bottom. It is just adorable and they have other great color options as well! It's a nice way to break up all my black from my hatjeggingsclogs, and bag ;)

    Thanks for reading today! xO

    Friday Faves on a Friday

    I know the title of this post might be confusing, but hear me out ;) First off, after years and years of not having a blog Facebook page, I finally created one here. I would so appreciate it if you guys could like the page! I PROMISE I will not be spammy and annoying, which is one of the main reasons why I never created one in the first place. But it's time to grow up and just do it haha ;) 

    Today I'm styling the cute Tiffany Blouse from Friday Faves, an online boutique! I love their shop so much that I bought myself this top (and it's actually on sale now... ha just my luck...) because Friday Faves has the cutest stuff!
    The dainty details on this top is what makes it so cute. I especially love the sleeve length, I think it's so flattering! I love the color combo of the white with the olive pants, tan hat, and black clogs. Can you tell I like these sandals? haha..
    Any fun weekend plans for you guys? I woke up today thinking it was Saturday, so that was a bit disappointing... haha.
    hat: Urban Outfitters || top: c/o Friday Faves || pants: American Eagle || clogs: Lucky Brand
    Have an amazing weekend! xO
