Favorite Summer Beauty Products

Hey Guys!! Happy Friday!! This post is going to be about my favorite beauty products that I love to use all Summer long!! I'm thinking of turning this into a seasonal post.

Tinted Moisturizer

When it starts to get really humid and hot outside, I like to keep it light on my face. I put away my BB cream and other foundations and only use my tinted moisturizer. The only one that I have found in my shade is by Stila. This was $34 but so worth it. It is so lightweight, I forget I have it on. It blends so well with my complexion and gives a nice fresh and flawless look. It also has SPF 20 which is good when you are in the sun. Hopefully I can find another tinted moisturizer that matches me but for now I'll stick with this one.


I just love the glowy, bronze look during the summer. These are two of my favorite bronzers to use during the summer. I have two from Victoria's Secret but I dropped one and it is in pieces :( so I have been using this Mega Glow Bronzer. It has just the right amount of shimmer and just looks amazing. I got this during a Semi Annual sale so I'm not sure if this one is still being sold but they do have great bronzers. When I don't want to wear a shimmer bronzer, I reach for my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Medium/Deep. This smells just like chocolate and makes me want some every time I use it. I love the color pay off and just how good it looks.

Gold and Bronze Shadows

I love rocking a gold or bronze shadow during the summer. It goes so well with the glowy, bronze look that I love so much. I do use other colors but tend to grab for gold or bronze shadows. These two are Mulch and Amber Lights by Mac.

Bright Polish Colors

I love bright colors and cannot wait until Spring and Summer to wear them on my nails. I always wear bright pink all summer but try to switch up the colors with yellows, blues, corals and other fun colors. I have so many bright nail polish colors to choose from.

Fruity and Floral Scents

When it starts to get warm, I put away my musky, strong scents and bring out my floral and fruity scents. To me, these scents are lighter and perfect for the warm weather and just scream summer.

So that is it for my favorite summer beauty products. What products you do love to use in the summer? Comment below and let me know!!

  4. Love your picks! I'm all about the tinted moisturizers and I love your nail polish choices. Ok so I have a question, I've been wanting to try bronzing but I have no clue how to chose a bronzer for my skin

    1. Thanks Rhondine!! I know Mac has pretty good bronzers and NYX. You want to pick one that gives your skin a nice glow.

  5. I go for gold and bronzy shadows too every Summer. I'm trying to add some color on my eyes lately but I usually stick to these shades when I'm in a rush. Those bronzers are pretty, I still have to try that Too Faced bronzer which everybody loves. Great faves and it is so Summer-y!

    1. Thanks Jackie. The Too Faced bronzer is pretty great if you want a matte bronzer!

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
