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!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!! Too Faced bronzer is pretty awesome!! I want to try the Chocolate Bar pallet!

  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:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
