Summer Craves-Part 1

With the official temperature of Atlanta 10 degrees just cooler than hell, I think it's safe to say we're officially in summer. So today I thought I'd share my summer essentials with you!

What the celebs are wearing and slathering on, what this chica is loving and what the cool kids are reading....

-Hawaiin tropic oil 
I've just recently started rubbing a little splash of this on after I moisturize. It keeps your skin soft and helps accentuate your muscles. Just don't get too excited or you'll look greeezzzy!


Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunnies 
These are on my summer wish list!



Vitamin Water Zero 
I've been hooked up to a Vitamin Water IV this summer. I seriously crave it!  


Man Razors
Man razors are so much better than womens! They're made for a closer shave and minimize the dreaded "razor rash"



St. Tropz Spray Tan 
I've been dying to try this. I have not been dying to shell out the 35 bones it cost per can. 


Colored Denim 
Colored denim is all the rage this year. I stalked this girl in the target the other day to ask her where she got her bright blue skinnies....I do this all the time - is that creepy? - Only to find out they were these Sam & Lavi Vivien lovelies from Bloomies.


Essie Nail Polish
  While I'm loving bright colors in my wardrobe this summer....I'm loving neutrals when it comes to beauty products. We all know my love for Essie nail polish and my new fav shade is Sand Tropez.


iPhone Incase for Andy Warhol
Summertime  every time your phone blows up
What are you L-O-V-I-N-G this summer?

I started using mens razors a few year ago and love them. So much better than ladies and last so much longer!

Angel Glover said...

haha, i love how the skinny jeans were from bloomies! coral is still my favorite color, so i'm dying for a coral dress, one of those slightly oversized striped shirts from f21, and my tan. seriously, last year i didn't have to work at all, but this year since i've been gone three weeks, i don't have it. thank goodness im naturally darker. i'm also really loving those nike exercise shorts and Tshirts.. so comfortable!
ever since you've talked about it, i've been dying to try Essie polish.. i'll break down and buy a bottle after china. :)

I drink at least two vitamin water zeroes a day in addition to my regular agua intake. It totally helps keep me at 100 ounces of water a day.

Gotta keep hydrated, yo!

Katie said...

Drinking Vitamin Water (Zero) now...I read minds! haha I drink the "Rise" in the morning all the time and love it. I love those sunnies..I'm a sucker for aviators!

Meghan said...

I so need me some colored denim! I am loving the blue!

Young and Fabulous said...

confession: ive never had vitamin water before!! i need to try it!

ok back to your post. I love Hawaiian tropic brand and this stuff looks awesome...but yeah if i put on too much id look like those wrinkly leather old men who stalk the beaches

man razors=YES YES YES!

this summer I am LOVING the color coral. I bought coral nail polish and basically want to eat it up! And also hair flowers are so cute right now too! oh summer I love thee!

-The Frog Princess- said...

I also use men razors! funny stuff. Love the phone case :)

CMae said...

I LOVE THE ANDY WARHOL phone case ONLY problem....I don't have an Iphone. I'm an android HTC EVO girl.....:( I get so bummed seeing all these super cute cases and yet cell case makers don't seem to wanna share their designs with any phone other than apple. :( sad face.

ohmygosh could it be any hotter in Atlanta?? It was almost unbearable this weekend! Love all these things you picked - definitely couldn't last through the heat with out my shades and those blue skinny jeans are so fun! One other necessary thing is my 30 or 45 spf sunscreen - I would be a lobster without it!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Chelsea said...

Greer's Gossip said...

So agree about the razors. My husband always wonders why I pick his razor over mine!!

Rachel said...

Yes to VW's Zero calorie water.
Yes to Essie.
Yes Warhol everything.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

oh i love everything here! i love colored denim and are still on the hunt for the perfect pair. and yes - vitamin water is super addicting!

Ashley said...

I need to get some of that tanning oil! Good tips, Ash! And, those colored jeans...too friggin' cute! I wonder if I could pull them off...hmmm. Confession...I buy men razors too! They do work so much betters than ours!

Sam {fitnessfoodandfaith.blogspot.com} said...

i never thought to use a man's razor!! brilliant. trying it out tonight.

Carolyn said...

OMG! I use men's razors too! SO much better!!!

Rissy said...

if a girl followed me around to ask where I got something I was wearing, I'd probably want to be friends with her. Does that make me creepy? Don't answer that.

I plan to find a bf in the near future and steal his razors so no worries there ; )

Michaela said...

Don't even tease me with those sunglasses!! I want them so bad. Essie rocks, too!!

dana @ wonder forest said...

i need to grab myself some man razors lol. i always use man shaving cream because it is cheaper, you get more in a can, and it works just the same as the women's!
p.s. i am your newest follower :)

Sand Tropez is one of my favorite summer colors too! Essie has some really great shades... I also really like Chinchilly and Tart Deco!

I have totally given up on the self tanning. I just refuse. Haha. It all streaks!!! UGHHHHHHHHHHH.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I NEED sunglasses pretty much all year round but ESPECIALLY in the summer!

Jamie said...

I've used a guy's razor for years! You're right...they shave so much better!

The Southland Life said...

Why am the only one who didn't know about guy razors being better?!? I must have missed that in my many years of reading seventeen! Hope u had a Happpppy 4th!!! xx.

Tatiana said...

I LOVE that vitamin water too. It's the best I've ever had! And those men razors are awesome, especially for those hairy beasts as myself! haha

Stefany said...

My mom thinks I'm crazy but men's razors do work sooo much better than women's! I've been buying man razors ever since I tried my boyfriend's razor once and fell in love! Haha. :)

natasha {schue love} said...

I've always wanted to try St. Tropez! Love all your picks!

Katie said...

I don't know why I'm just now putting two and two together...but one of my besties is moving to ATL this week! I'll have to get some good city tips from you to share with her :)

Kara {A Little Bit of Lovely} said...

I just posted about those MJ sunglasses and Michaela told me that I had to check out your blog! So glad she did, b/c your blog is adorable. I am now following you!

Thanks for the mans razor tip. Also heard that Neutrogena spray tan is great (and a bit cheaper!) :)
