What NOT to Forget on Your Next Trip (...and probably will!)

Thank you to UpBra for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are solely my own!

No matter how early - or late (guilty) - you start packing for a trip, you're bound to forget something every. single. time. It always happens to me no matter how many lists I make or how organized I feel like I am. Real talk - packing is SO stressful! I think part of it is the stress of having to fit everything, stay under the 50lb weight limit and check everything off of your list at the same time. These are the things you likely have forgotten before on a trip; if you're getting ready to travel this summer, make sure these are at the top of your list!

The Top Amazon Finds You Need to Buy this Summer


Amazon never, ever fails. From things you know you can get in a matter of days for summer - sunscreen, sunglasses, a new pool float - to the things you'd never expect them to have, you can always count on Amazon to make you spend a TON of money, hah! I found so many great finds on Amazon that you NEED to have this summer - you'll love these and will use them all season (and beyond) long!

Golden Summer Yellows Under $100


One of the hottest colors this season is golden yellow. We're seeing it everywhere and as someone whose never owned much yellow of anything, or ever been interested in wearing yellow... I'm LOVING it! In my opinion yellow can be tricky because there's so many shades but golden yellows are really pretty on everyone and especially so for the summer. I've been on the hunt for some of the best golden yellow summer buys and whether you're all-in on the yellow trend or just want a few pops of yellow to add some color, these are under $100 and will have you loving yellow more than you thought you would!

The Best Summer Beauty Products for an Everyday, Flawless Look


Your skincare routine likely evolves as you try new products and changes as the season does - I know that's the case for me! There's always endless pages of new beauty arrivals at cosmetic stores and with so many things that are new and "improved" and "the best ever", who knows what to try?! And not to mention how expensive it can get to try new products and have a draw full of face masks and foundations... Getting off topic here, but you get the point. ;) Summer skincare is unique in that you likely have been in the sun, have a tan or maybe burned a little bit (oops! But we've all been there...) or you feel like your skin is needing some extra TLC before/after/during a trip. I'm a firm believer that less is more AND that your glow comes from your skincare products you use. They technically go hand-in-hand, right?

Sticking to the less is more theme (clearly channeling my inner Meghan Markle, which isn't ever a bad thing! ;), I've been trying out all sorts of new products to achieve a simple, quick and affordable summer glow without using too much product. Here's everything you need to add to cart - for real - to achieve that flawless look this summer!
