Happy summer! Here are the things I’ve been loving this summer. I will try to leave as many links down below at the end of this post. And please let me know what you’re loving this summer in the comments below!
I’ve always been the person who would mix and match my bikini sets. My current favorite is my Cotton On Body black bikini top with my Hollister hot pink bottoms. The black looks great with a tan and the pink adds a nice pop of color.
During the summer, I typically don’t like to wear a lot of make-up, but when I do, I always always always use this The Body Shop bronzing gel. It’s very lightweight and adds a nice shimmery glow.
Although I naturally get tanner during the summer months, when I get dressed up for a night out, I love spraying on this Sephora self-tanning body mist. It’s a very fine mist, doesn’t leave streaks and leaves a nice glowy finish.
Although I have been lifting for a while, I’ve never tried crossfit until I watched the documentary, Fittest On Earth. And now that I’ve started, I’m hooked. Your heart rate goes up almost right away and even over the first 2 weeks I felt myself getting much stronger.
I am OBSESSED with everything Kate Spade, and when I saw this coconut cross-body on sale, I had to get it. It’s the perfect size to fit my phone, cards and money, and looks so good with any summery outfit, day or night.
Last summer, my family was constantly on the lookout for good poke restaurants, and this summer we decided to start making it at home, and it’s delicious! To make it healthier, add tons more veggies and swap out white rice for a brown rice.
This is kind of obvious, because it’s summer, but I have been out in the sun every second that the sun is out. I take my book (for summer reading) and try to get through about 20 pages every day. I also (I know this is weird) have been reading old issues of People. I don’t know why, but I’ve been loving it. My mom has always stressed the importance of getting tan, not burnt, so I use the Coppertone Sport on my body and the Neutrogena ultra sheer on my face. I have not gotten burnt at all so far, but I have a deep tan:)
Since I’m counting down the days I have left in Singapore, I’ve been paying extra attention to all the things I may have taken for granted over the last 18 years. Since the weather has been so nice and the sky has been so clear, the sunsets have been absolutely stunning! #nofilter
*Disclaimer: I am of legal drinking age in Singapore (the drinking age is 18). Tiger beer is the local beer in Singapore, and now that I am 18, I have been loving being able to drink a local drink. Although it may not be the best beer in the world, it gives me such a sense of home.
