Happy June!! Summer time is officially here, so I must share with you my Summer Essentials! Is this not the cutest set-up?!
First things first! Let’s talk Sunscreen. Lord knows we love that summer glow, and you’ll get it, but let’s get it gently, shall we? Lather up that body with the Essentials Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen from Rodan+Fields. WHY? Not only is it water-resistant, it’s non-greasy, lightweight, and won’t leave you smelling like “outside”, or a tanning bed! It smells absolutely delightful! It does more than just defend against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Vitamins C and E scavenge free-radicals, while maintaining your skin’s delicate natural moisture barrier and emollients help condition the skin to protect against environmental stresses!
You can’t forget your lips! Essentials SPF 25 Broad Spectrum Lip Shield (Two Pack) defends your lips daily against the aging effects of the sun while conditioning them with moisturizing lipid molecules and peptides to visibly smooth lip texture. This Lip Shield blocks harmful UVA rays while moisturizing lips with Shea Butter, Avocado, and Sunflower Seed Oil.
BAGS! You MUST have a fun, gorgeous summer bag to carry all your beach/pool gear/summer fun items. This bag is from Stella & Dot. Sadly, this is from a few seasons ago. I bought it for our Hawaii trip! Gorgeous. However, they get new bags each season! So find one you love and snatch it up! The worst thing ever is the remorse of not buying something you love! Don’t forget a giant beach towel! Bigger is always better!
Let’s just be real…Whether you are a mom or not, when you go to the pool with your girls, you need something ice-cold, and need it to stay that way! Maybe its a pre-made margarita…or not…. But keeping an ice-cold drink at arms-length is essential! A YETI is where it’s at!
EYES! You’ve got to protect those baby blues! (Or browns, or greens.) The sun can do so much damage to your eyes. Protect them with your favorite sunglasses! Ray-bans are my fave, but these are a dupe, and I love them!
Where do you put your phone, cards, and money so they don’t fall to the bottom of your awesome giant bag? This wallet is amazing! It fits my Iphone7 phone, cash, 6 cards, and my license. It’s the perfect size. I just throw it in which ever bag I’m carrying, OR if I choose to go light – just grab it and go!
The one thing I forgot to put in here is a super cute sun hat! Big or small, a sun hat is perfect for protecting your face, chest, and shoulders from the harsh sun. Ladies, too much sun is a NO-NO. We don’t want leathery skin. You have to live with your skin for a long time! Wear it well!
