Survive the Summer

Summertime is for surely fun-time, but it's definitely a needy season.  Here are some things that I have grown to rely on and love that are pretty summer specific. Enjoy!

Evian Facial Spray $15
A bit of Evian's Facial Spray is a dream come true on a hot day.  The mist instantly cools your skin and leaves you feeling pretty refreshed.  This stuff is also a great tool to set your powder make-up in the morning.
Peppermint Oil $25.99
Last summer I was overheating at work and Stacey suggested I rub some peppermint oil on the back of my neck to help cool off.  The tingly sensation definitely made me feel like I had an ice pack on my neck. BONUS: Peppermint oil is great to rub on your belly to help relieve an upset stomach.
Wet Ones Singles $2.99 
Wet know...because we don't have time to shower multiple times a day when it's a gazillion degrees outside.

Alba After-Sun Lotion $11.95 
Quoting Alba, "After a day in the sun, skin needs a little pick-me- up. Exotic and aromatic, the natural acids in coffee help soften skin and revitalize circulation, while caffeine and green tea help neutralize free radicals incited by sun exposure. Botanical emollients soothe, hydrate and nourish tired skin. Après-sun delight." Delight, indeed.
Maui Babe Browning Lotion $15
 This stuff is seriously the best tanning lotion you'll ever use.  If your desire is to become a bronzed beauty, Maui Babe's (All Natural) Browning Lotion is a must.  When you apply the lotion, it gives you a bit of color, however it doesn't "stain" in any way.  Now, I'm not making any promises, but for some reason when I've used this lotion in the past, I don't burn...I just get tan. Oh, and it smells good too...smells a bit nutty.
Rainbow Double Arch Flip Flops $53
I have been wearing Rainbow Flip flops for a while now, and I feel zero desire to experiment with any other brand.  These sandals are made to last, and with leather uppers, they're made to mold to your foot, giving you a custom fit. They're crazy comfy because of the bonus arch support.
