As I turned the calendar to May (what happened to April???), I thought it would be fun to share some of the things that help get my summer vibe started up. Can I have a "vibe" at my age, you ask? Why, yes I can, lol!
My first fave is Philosophy Lemon Custard shower gel, body mousse and fragrance spray. This is totally my go to summer fragrance - light and fresh. I just bought a 64 ounce mega bottle of the gel, lol! Love, love, LOVE this fragrance line. A little pricey, but totally worth the splurge as far as I'm concerned.
The next summer must have is a product I use year round, but it really makes a name for itself during the hot and sultry days of summer.
ELF makeup setting mist will only set you back $3.00 - yep, three bucks. This product gives your makeup staying power beyond belief. It is truly the postal service of setting mists..."through rain and snow and gloom of night," this product keeps your makeup looking good through it all.
When I first saw these "midi" rings, I'll admit I thought they were kind of goofy - as in a ring that doesn't go over your knuckle goofy. But I 've had a change of heart and I've been wearing this Lauren Conrad ring every day. I am somewhat obsessed with looking at it and admiring how it looks on my finger. It has sass - and summer is the perfect time for sass!
May marks the time of year in my part of the country where patios put on their summer finery and the outdoor entertaining season begins. I love our patio, especially at night when the lights are twinkling and the soft summer breezes swirl.
Who doesn't love a fresh and crisp salad on a hot summer's day? The fresh veggies and fruit available from the farmer's markets make for endless combos of deliciousness!
I am a self professed lover of all things sangria - red sangria, white sangria...who cares? This fruity wine concoction is summertime delicious no matter what the color, lol!
Although not cool and refreshing, I totally have to put a plug in for my new found Keurig coffee that I found at ....Menards! Yes, Menards, the home improvement store. A box of 36 is only $8.98 - you read that right! Twice as many K-Cups for half the price. I 'll admit I first bought a box of it because of the price, but whoa! The Chocolate Caramel Brownie is my all time favorite, best ever coffee. Ever.Ever. Ever. There are lots of flavors to choose from, and at zero calories it is a guilt free indulgence.
There are so many things I love about this time of year, but thanks for joining me in this snapshot of some of my top favorites. What are your May faves?
Thanks for stopping by,
