First Day of Summer 2018

It is officially the first day of Summer. I woke up in a relatively great mood. The weather is incredible, as it is not too hot or cold. Although the humidity prevents it from being pristine, I would say the environment is close to it for the first day of the hottest season. I am going to leave for work shortly, but want to make a smoothie before I go. I am thinking banana and dates with perhaps some chocolate almond milk? I like to add some coconut sugar for good measure. I don't know what it is with me and coconut sugar, as I seem to really be loving and appreciating it. 

And speaking of coconut sugar, I do have to go grocery shopping after work today. I really love the fruit and vegetable stands here in Idaho. Everything is modestly fresh and organic. The prices are exceptionally good. I have lived all over yet I find myself appreciating this. One thing about Idaho that I find fascinating is the fact that it is hotter in the evening than the late morning/early afternoon. I think it is the only state I have ever been in that is like this. Perhaps this is why so many grow crops (potatoes and onions more than anything else) here.

For work today, I am wearing a simple mustard, gold colored v-neck shirt with a black belt and black pencil skirt. The shirt (which is visible) is from J.Crew. As you can kind of tell in my selfie today. The skirt is from BCBGMaxAzria (which is non-visible from the selfie) and the belt I bought from Forever 21

In terms of beauty products, I am very much obsessed with the Giorgio Armani Beauty Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Face Balm, LORAC POREfection Foundation, By Terry Paris Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow Pen in Bronze Moon (No. 4), Benefit Cosmetics goof proof eyebrow pencil, and Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick in Libra. I love more things, but I only have a few minutes. I want to also add that I am currently obsessed with the Goutal Paris Rose Pompon Parfum. I own an array of perfumes yet I find myself reaching for this one the most. The fragrance is one of the best things you will ever smell in your life. I'll create a beauty favorites and share what I love for the month. 

Anyways, I am off. Off to work that is. Have a wonderful day!

Get the hair look: Frankie Bikinis 2017 Summer collection

When it comes to a fun California vibe that is seductive in nature, Frankie’s Bikinis 2017 Summer collection epitomizes it. Made up of flirty floral and pretty pastels with a hint of cute crochet, this collection is everything you would imagine it to be. To complement the style and the playful aesthetic of the entire collection, Frankie's Bikinis teamed up with TRESemmé Stylist Tyler Laswell for voluminous, beachy waves.

So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, you are going to want to the prep the hair. After doing a full blow out, you are going to want to take the hair and split the hair into four even sections. These sections include the top, the bottom, the left and the right sides of the head.

Then, you are going to want take the TRESemmé TRES Two Climate Protection Mousse through each section, one at a time. As you continue, you are going to want to blow dry using a diffuser. This works amazingly to protect against humidity and bring out natural wave.

As you continue, you are going to want to twist each section around itself, as if you were turning the hair into a rope. Then, take that hair and wrap it into a loose bun. Next, you want to secure the bun with safety pins. For extra texture as well as hold, you can add a little bit of heat by using a blow dryer.

To finish the look, you are going to want to  release the braids. Then, shake out with fingers and set the look with TRESemmé TRES Two Climate Protection Hairspray.

Congratulations! You have just re-created the amazing hair look for Frankie's Bikinis 2017 Summer collection.
