Summer Faves

When I think of summer, I think of fireworks, ah-dorable boys, sweet smelling perfume and gentle waves crashing in the background. So to celebrate the first offical day of summer, I’ve compiled this fabulous list of summer favorites for under 15 dollars. So grab a glass of iced tea and start reading.

1. TIGI Bedhead foxy curls mousse (depends on source)
This product manages to turn my super thick wavy hair into curly yet beachy perfection. A must have for naturally curly/wavy hair. Just don’t go nuts. Too much can turn those curls into crunchy instead cute.
Note- I bought this from my stylist, but if your salon doesn’t have it, order off of Amazon.

2. QT/Quick Trip Peach black tea (69 cents)
I love the Peach Black tea because it has a ton of antioxdents (a must for great skin), is zero calories and tastes great. The price? Even better.

3. Forever 21 Lacquered bow necklace (1.80)
A charming yet cheap necklace that adds a cute touch to any outfit. It’s good quality for the price and the metal hasn’t tarnished one bit.

4. e.l.f. Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine (1 dollar)
The best lipgloss for a dollar. Perfect amount of shimmer and decent staying time. Only issue is that the site’s colors are a little off from the real thing.


5.
Vera Bradley Seashore Keychain (15 dollars)
So cute and goes with tons of purses. This would also make a cute school tote/backpack addtion and the quality is fantastic.

6. OPI Minnie Mouse collection mini laquer set (14 dollars)
4 way too cute colors in even cuter bottles. Sold!
OPI is great quality and this new collection is to die for.

7. Bath and Body Works Signature Collection Body Cream Aruba Coconut (12.50 dollars)
Best body cream I’ve ever used! This smell is like summer in a bottle and is so great for dry skin. Best part is, it’s only 5 dollars till July 3rd 2013!!!

Updates-
– I currrently have over 2,500 views! (2,709 as of right now) This is so ah-mazing and I just wanted to thank everyone from the top commenters to casual glancers.
– My links have been messed up, and WordPress won’t let me fix them. So I had to copy and paste links recently which looks so unprofessional. 😦 Hopefuly, I’ll get this issue sorted out but it the meantime, my posts will still look like this.
– Need advice? Head on over to Ask the Alpha for ah-mazing help ASAP.

Let me know your summer faves in the comments 🙂

Pretty for the pool

Bikinis to one pieces, everyone wants to look fabulous at the pool. Here’s how 🙂

Getting toned

– With all the extra time in summer, it’s a great time to try a new sport or fitness activity. If you have any “trouble areas”, do a few extra things for that spot (ie- Lunges for your butt and thighs) but don’t obsess. Check out https://massieblockonabudget.wordpress.com/2013/04/13/get-a-goregous-body-part-2/ for some great tips and vist sites like fitsugar for workouts.

Perfect bag

– To haul around all the water proof mascara, smart water liter bottles and SPF 50 bottles, you need a cute but sturdy tote bag. Avoid materials like leather and choose ones that can stand pool water and coatings of SPF 50. Cotton, mesh, and canvas are perfect.

Packing it up

– To complete that fab bag, fill it with pool essentials. SPF is a must, along with cute lip balm, a fun coverup, towel, goggles, a magazine or two and a few ponytail holders.

Sunscreen shumscreen

– I know, everyone from Teen Vogue to your creepy dermatolgist says to wear sunscreen, but they are all right. And since when are wrinkles and cancer in fashion? Bottom line, reapply every 2 hours when you are outside and choose makeup with SPF. Take this fun quiz (http://www.totalbeauty.com/content/quizzes/q_sunscreen) to find out the right one for you.

Bikini so teeny
– If you don’t like bikinis, don’t wear them. The key is to find a swim suit that fits you well, has a reasonable price and makes you look ah-mazing.
http://www.xojane.com/clothes/hey-huge-breasted-girls-it-our-swimsuit-season is a great source for bigger busted girls. (disclamer- some swearing is in this link. I have no control over what the author says or any of her statements.)

Makeup up your mind
– Puh-lease skip the makeup. You are at the pool! Waterproof mascara (Covergirl 24 hour LashBlast mascara seriously lasts. It may not say waterproof, but trust me it is!), tinted lip balm with SPF, sunscreen and you are done chica!

Terrific toes
– Use a sugar scrub to exfoliate (not much $? Make your own. Just combine sugar with hydrating ingredients like coconut oil then mix it together and add a cute label. Done!) then put on a thick body butter for extra moisture.
– Finish it all off with 2 coats of polish, add some top coat and grab some flip flops! You look wonderful 😉
