5 Spring/Summer Beauty Products I’m Loving

Spring has FINALLY sprung & I could not be happier. Honestly, I feel like an entirely different person in the spring. Just as the flowers are blooming & the trees are regaining their leaves, I, too, feel rejuvenated. It’s incredible how much warm/sunny weather can boost your mood.

Along with the theme of spring cleaning (check my post about spring cleaning your whole life here), I’ve been itching revamp everything in my life. This has mostly come out as buying new warm-weather clothes and beauty products, oddly enough. In general, I’m not the biggest makeup/hair/beauty routine girl, but for some reason this year I’ve been dying to try new products to change it up. It resulted in a very expensive trip to Target. It happens.

Sooooo I wanted to do a quick post about the beauty products I’m currently loving this spring/summer. Have any recommendations for me? I’d love to hear them (leave a comment below!)

How to Find the Perfect Gift for Any Occassion

I love giving people gifts. I know it’s super cliché, but I actually like giving gifts more than I like receiving them. And one of the best feelings in the world is stumbling upon the perfect gift that just instantly reminds you of someone (I already have my sister’s Christmas gift bookmarked on Etsy).

But sometimes it’s hard to find that extra special something for that extra special someone, especially when you’re pressed for time. Well, luckily for you (and me!), there’s a company out there dedicated to helping you become the best gift-giver of all time.

I’d like to introduce Two Pretzels, a Philly-based curated gift box company that’s all about celebrating the best (and worst) moments in life. Birthdays, engagements, breakups, promotions, pregnancies, bad days, you name it, Two Pretzels has a uniquely curated box for it. The masterminds behind Two Pretzels were kind enough to gift me their “Good Times & Tan Lines: Summer Seasonal” box which has the most amazing & sassy essentials to party all the way through Labor Day. Keep on reading to see what’s in the box & get a special discount code!
