My Five Favorite Summer Essentials - Beauty & Fashion

Happy Summer friends! I hope yours is off to a good start. It's time for another round of
My Five Favorites, we're chatting about our favorite summer products. Friends are always
 my go-to for beauty product and fashion recommendations, and I'm anxious to see what
 these girls' must-haves are.  

Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

Our guest this month couldn't be sweeter or more perfect for our topic! Sheila @
Maison de Cinq is a former fashion stylist, and has a great eye for decor and all things
 home, as well. How beautiful is this cool, casual vibe she's created for her summer
 living room?

#1 - Rapid Lash

You guys NEED this, whatever the season! I've always had good eyelashes, but they
were gradually getting shorter. I checked with some friends and started searching
 reviews, which led me to this AWESOME, REASONABLY priced lash serum. My lashes
are SO long, and it only took a couple of weeks. I originally bought it at Ulta, with a coupon
 I found online, it ended up being $40, and then saw this deal at Costco - 2 for $49!
I'm still using my original tube I bought over 3 months ago and have skipped nights here
 and there.     

#2 - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

This is my favorite cleanser that easily removes all of my favorite mascara and has
a refreshing, soothing cucumber extract. The smell makes me feel like I'm at a spa. :)
This cleanser is a little pricey but it goes a long way. I was first introduced when I received
 it as a gift, when I went to get a replacement at Sephora they said it was their best selling
 cleanser. The smaller size ($15) is fun to tie on a special gift (perfect for any age) or for a
 hostess gift. 

#3 - Forever 21 Studded Slide Sandal 

  The perfect chic but inexpensive sandal to wear to the pool or beach. I hate my nice 
sandals getting dirty but I still like to wear something prettier than $1 flip flops. I love
the Valentino Rockstud look of these without the $700 price tag.
 Available in black or white.

#4 - Target Kona Mules

If I wear something new I judge the cuteness factor by how many compliments I
get. Haha! These super comfortable Target mules are perfect Gucci knock offs and are
 off the chart on compliments. I always tell people they're from Target, I really thought one
 stranger was going to hug me, she was beside herself excited to get a pair. 
They're available in Black, White, Red & Silver.  

(The photo on Target website is SO poor, they don't look like someone dumped 
a bottle of glitter on them, they look like photo below)

#5 - H & M Floral Skirt

This lightweight watercolor pattern skirt is easy, breezy and so versatile. I've worn mine
 with a fitted knotted white t-shirt and fun tassel earrings. Perfect dressed up or down.

I am receiving maybe 2 of your blogs a year. Is that all you are blogging or is something wrong with my email? I love your post. You were one of the first ladies I followed when I discovered blogs. I would hate to loose touch. Please get back to me. Thanks. Charlotte

Okay as soon as I posted my comment I saw the problem. You have the wrong email for me.

Oh I'll take one of each please! Love your favs!

Sheila @ Maison de Cinq said...

Okay, I think I need all of these! LOVE those mules (like the stranger, I might hug you for sharing this!), and that skirt is absolutely adorable! I love the fresh summer colors.

And the Rapid Lash might be the best tip ever! I had been wanting to use the more expensive ones, but heard they can change your eye color which turned me off immediately. Yours sounds safer and less expensive. I can't wait to try it!

Thank you for including me Pam, and for your sweet introduction:)

Oooooooh I'm excited to check out this lash serum! And also the cleanser - I am getting to the end of my pricey one and need something new. How cute is that skirt - you must look adorable in it with a knotted white tee and tassel earrings!! Please post a pic of yourself in this outfit!!! xox

Unknown said...

Hi there. I was excited to see your post and have missed you on blog land. Your DIY and design ideas always inspire. Are you still actively posting? If yes, may you check my email? If no, I hope all is ok and just know you are missed :)

Unknown said...

I'm totally going to buy that Rapid Lash - I use to have the best lashes but aging hasn't been good to them! And that skirt is gorgeous!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

You always find the chicest bargains! Great list!

Pam said...

Hi Pam,
Love your blog! I ordered those mules from your link and they are super GLITTERY! I quickly realized yours were by Merona and the ones I linked to are a different shoe by "a new day" They are going back pronto. Found the correct ones on Poshmark!

Mary Ann Pickett said...

Great advice, Pam! I want to try that eye lash serum...means I will have to go to Costco with my husband (ours is a zoo in SF)! :)
