Happy Summer friends! While I am not usually the hugest fan of hot weather I am a fan of fun summer activities, products, summer TV, and summer clothes! Today I am sharing some of my summer favorites!

Summer Favorites


Summer TV: Obviously like most people I am pretty pumped for the Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise! Although not entirely sure if BIP is coming back… have y’all seen the news?! I am also sad Pretty Little Liars is ending 🙁 If you want something fun and new to watch check out Confess on Go90! You can download the app for free and watch the show, based on Colleen Hoover’s book, Confess. I am also loving 13 Reasons Why which I binged in April. Oh and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange Is The New Black on Netflix! So much good TV!

Beauty Products: I have no idea how I found Invisibobbles but I am obsessed. They are my favorite hair ties now. I am also LOVING my Clarisonic Mia FIT (gifted) and Garnier Micellar water. Seriously where have I been on this stuff? It takes makeup off better than anything. Also if you are looking for an amazing mask: The Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber mask is bomb! Seriously, I use it about 3 times a week let it soak in for 10 minutes and rinse it off and its perfect for summer.

Clothes: I pretty much live in Lululemon in the summer months and all year really. Power Y tanks are my favorite for summer. I also love this sports bra. I have about 6 of these EmiJay tanks for barre and just wearing around and I love them! For non workout apparel I am really into denim shorts. So easy to dress up or down.  How cute are these Steve Madden sandals? So trendy but great price point! Also wearing this baseball hat on REPEAT!

Random: Time at the lake is pretty much the best! We are taking Liam to the lake this week and I am so ready for lake, pool, beer, reading, and relaxing with my two guys. Also I have been back at Pure Barre for about 2.5 months now twice a week. You guys. I love it. I forgot how amazing barre feels. I have been going to Pure Barre Addison and the teachers, community, everything are wonderful!  If you are in the DFW area come take a class with me at Pure Barre Addison!

      We are looking forward to spending some time up at our condo in New Hampshire. We love the laid back atmosphere up there and are looking forward to doing some more hiking and exploring of the area.

      I’m so bad with the heat, but I love all the things you can do in the summer. I love the pool for one thing! I’ve been half living in LulaRoe actually. So comfy.

      I am also a lover of pretty little liars!!! I am not sure I’m ready to move on… lol! As for beauty, I need a good beach spray for my hair so I can just go with the messy look when it’s super humid outside! Happy summer!

      My summer staples are sundresses, Rosé, and every form of salsa imaginable… like, all of them. Watermelon salsa, by the way, is amazing. I also LOVE the Touch Liquid Foundation by Younique. I was recently diagnosed with rosacea and so far it’s the only foundation I’ve found that doesn’t irritate my skin, which is great because the coverage feels light but hides all the icky redness and the bumps!

      What great summer favorites. I love the summer TV shows and always look forward to them. Mine is switching out my makeup and styling some outfits for the summer weather.

      Toying with the idea of a lake house in a few years when we’re ready to move. It helps to have a draw if you want visitors! 😉

      I love Garner Micellar Water, it’s the best for taking off makeup and I love how it makes my skin feel. I really need to watch the new season of Kimmy Schmidt!

    8. Jackie Speed

      I love the bachelorette too and I haven’t heard bp is not coming back what?? I still haven’t tried lululemon but keep hearing how great it is. My go to workout clothes is VS . Thanks for sharing!

      Summer tv is the best! Growing up I was super hooked on MTV and the BEST shows always came out in the summer months. My parents would get so mad because I’d just sit in my room binge watching it all day haha but currently I’m loving the new seasons of The Bachelorette and Orange Is The New Black.

    10. Neha Saini

      YesYesYes! The only thing that I don’t like about summer is that warm weather. But I am huge fan of summer. I can wear anything that I want. The food and cold drinks. I love all of them.

      I’m loving all the good shows to watch lately! Sad that PLL has ended. I’ve watched that since graduating high school lol.

    12. Lauren Abigail

      The news about BIP is so sad! I hope everyone involved isn’t harmed or anything (especially Corinne). This is a wonderful compilation of your favorites! I’m definitely checking out that sports bra!

    13. Jolleen

      We love a lot of the same things! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is just perfection. Once I watch it, that theme song is stuck in my head for days! The lake is also one of our summer favorites. We live like 45 minutes away from a big beautiful lake and we go often throughout the hot summer months.

    14. Ana

      Micellar water is definitely one of my faves too! I love those Steve Madden sandals too, the pearl details are too cute!

    15. Alexis

      I was bummed to hear about BIP. I was going to watch it for the first time. Nick’s season was the first time I ever watched The Bachelor so I was getting excited about BIP. We are currently binging Orange Is The New Black. I hope you guys have a great time at the lake!!
