July Faves: What I’m Looking Forward to This Month

It’s a new month, which means new obsessions for this Miami fashion blogger. Here’s a few of my new faves you’ll be seeing and hearing more about this month.

For me, summer smells like Miller Harris Citron Citron. It’s the perfect blend of citrus and black liquorice— summer with a kick. But it’s hard to find (it hails from London), so whenever I come across it, I snatch it up and then decide whether a situation is Citron Citron worthy or not.

Mosquitoes suck, but Swarovski-encrusted beetles from the Tropical Paradise collection are A-OK.

Butter London hits the nail on the head with this trio of hues: Japser (yellow), Fiver (green), Kerfuffle (pink). Get creative and use all three for a pretty pastel-powered paint job.

In Miami in the summer it’s OK to be shady. I’m keeping things under wraps with these round Great Escape sunnies from Vint & York. The shape is summer music fest approved.

Red is my go-to when it comes to lips, but M.A.C. Mineralize Rich Lipstick  in Lady at Play  is an amazing summer alternative that’s part hot pink, part coral, part perfect.

For those of you who can’t live without keys, the Blackberry Q10. It’s kind of amazing and the camera option that takes time elapse-esque pics is uber cool. Besides, you’re typos will be way less worse than the droves of iPhone users.

Why use regular hand wash when you can have one from Crabtree & Evelyn that conditions and smells like a yummy fruit salad and actually makes your hands softer?

If you haven’t used Bib + Tuck yet, you’re missing out. I scored this boho chic necklace for free. Yup, free.

What feels like silk, hides all of your skin’s imperfections and keeps you from having summertime shiny face? L’oreal Miracle Blur. Haven’t left home without it since I discovered it. If you by one new makeup product this summer, make sure this is it.

You absolutely cannot sun your face. It’s the ultimate no no. But you also can’t walk around with your face 12 shades lighter than the rest of your body, so cheat the system with Pixi’s Summertime bronzer.

Because the chlorine in the pool and the summer sun are drying out your hair, this Olez Inception Stem Cell Masque uses apple stem cells, Muru-Muru, Capuacu and Carite butters to bring your mane back to life.

Cheeki Brand undies come pre-packaged, so you can toss them in your gym bag, beach bag, purse (Hey, I’m not judging what you do on Tuesday nights), and also have a spare.
