Summer Lips

It’s just as important to protect your lips from the sun as it is the rest of your skin.  There are some great lipsticks with SPF that are perfect for everyday wear throughout the summer.  Check out a few of my favorites below!

I love how smoothly Vincent Longo lip sticks glide on:

Summer Citrus!

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of rose fragrance.  I love rose-scented skin care, candles, soaps, body washes, etc.  But now that it is full-on summer, I find myself drawn to citrus fragrances, orange and lemon and lime.  Below are a few great products I’ll be stocking up on to bring some summer-scent into my home!

The Red Flower blood orange hand and soap set has such pretty packaging and it smells wonderful – great for the guest bathroom!
