My Summer Staples
Here are some of my every day staples of summer. Links lead back to my original review if there was one.
Havaianas- I used to think what's all the fuss about these flip flops? Then I got a pair. Now I have 4 and feel like I need many more. Far more sturdier than most and very comfortable .
Guerlain Terracotta LipGloss- They release these in summer for a reason, they're totally right for the season. Usually they have SPF , unfortunately this time they don't. But the new bright coral shade is sheer and juicy, and really not overly bright. Perfect for a pop of color. Still using last year's more neutral bronze shade as well. Doesn't hurt either that the packaging is so hot.
Dusting Powder- I live for dusting powder when it's hot. They refresh, cool and add light scent. Right now I am loving Caswell Massey's Lilac and Honeysuckle scents and Penhaligon's Violetta ( when do you ever see violet powder ? I've hoarded my tin for years now).
Citrus Fragrances- As much as I love fragrance, when it's really hot I can't do the heavier scents. I adore citrus always but especially in summer. There are too many to show all of here, but Dior Escale a Pondicherry and Acqua Di Parma Arancia di Capri are two tops favs. Lancome's new O d'Azur and Annick Goutal's Eau de Hadrien and Ninfeo Mio are others that get a lot of use.
What are some of your summer staples? I'd love to hear .
