Our hair goes through a lot when we are at the beach or on vacation. The sun does a lot of damage, as does chlorine and the ocean.
However, we also want to achieve that summer beach hair, an effortless style of wavy hair that comes from being on the beach and in the sun.

Lately, I’ve seen “It-girls” sporting large, chunky gold bangles and chains and leather studded bracelets stacked on top of each other.
As my readers know..I’m not a fan of this look. It’s simply just too much arm candy and all it shows me is “i’m trying to show off how many accessories I have”
Yes, I do love a large watch (guilty as charged), but that doesn’t mean it should be paired with an arms length of jewelry as well.
These gem bracelets are my favorite kind of arm candy out right now. Each of these peices can either stand on their own, or worn with some simple bracelets or a ring.
These are classy and will draw attention without going over board. They can easily be paired with different outfits and really bring accessories to a classy level.
So if your going to invest in “arm-candy” keep it classy and simple. Remember, we are trying to feel classy and trendy…not weight down our arms.
Am I right ladies?
I know that throughout the year..whether it be for getting up to go to work..or barely sleeping through finals week at school..our baggy tired eyes take a serious toll.
There is nothing more unappealing about having baggy puffy eyes in the morning..but sometimes our concealer cannot even conceal our tired eyes.
Here are some tips on how to have bright and awake eyes even through the toughest part of the year!
Remember..the more awake and fresh you look..the more confident you will feel. It’s all about confidence!
1) Get Enough Sleep
It’s important to get enough sleep in order to prevent dark circles and puffy tired eyes. Sleep aids the body in repairing damaged skin and also works to keep our eyes bright. So try not to skimp on sleeping time…(if you can..)
2) Avoid Caffeine and Alcohol
Caffeine and Alcohol tend to dehydrate your skin and make eyes more dark. Instead..drink lots of water. It firms your skin and makes it much brighter.
3) Skin Lightening Moisturizer
Use a moisturizer that contains green tea, vitamin c, retinal or kojic acid. These skin creams have skin lightening qualities that will work to brighten up your under eye.
4) Light Concealer
Invest in a lighter concealer, use only in the corners and dark sections of your under eye. This will help brighten up your eyes and make them look as if they are not as dark.
5) Cool Compress
Use a chilled moist green tea bag, or a frozen bag of carrots or peas and place them on your eyes. Leave there for 10-15 minutes. This will help reduce those puffy dark circles!
A great way to dress casually and trendy for the summer is to get a pair of printed shorts.
they are beautiful, decorative and there are so many different choices out there to fit your style.
I love these shorts because you can wear them with so many different tops in your closet. They look great with a tank, a white button up, a tee shirt or even a slouchy sweater..
They are easy to wear..but look like a well put together, and complete outfit.
When it comes to “going out”, we want to look good..and hopefully catch someones attention (love interest..;-))
But we want to attract the right kind of attention… Dressing too slutty is undoubtedly going to get you attention..but from an equally slutty counter part.
I always say, you can’t control who you are attracted to..but you can control who you attract. So dress classy and beautiful if you want to attract a classy person. It’s as simple as that.
I love high, yet interesting necklines. They are sexy in their own way. They look beautiful, sophisticated and very trendy.
Women should buy more of these tops because they will be staples in your “going out wardrobe”. Perfect for a date to a nice restaurant or going to a bar with friends….
You will catch attention, but for all the right reasons!
If you’re looking to add some spice to your wardrobe, lightly studded heels are the way to go.
I put emphasis on the lightly, because I believe that shoes with too many large studs, or studs that are overwhelming the shoe are not classy or chic..however, here are some examples of some great studded shoes that are the PERFECT amount of spice without sacrificing everything that’s nice.
I love these shoes because they add a hint of edginess to a simple outfit.
I love an accessory that really compliments an outfit and takes it to the next level..that is how I feel about studded heels.
They are great paired with a delicate dress, or some work slacks or jeans.
Although they are studded, they are actually very versatile shoes..and you will find them to be an excellent addition to your shoe closet!
Here’s a new hair style tip that will leave you feeling glamorous without looking over done.
Instead of being afraid of rocking a full head of curls, trying rocking the curly pony tail!!
One of my BIGGEST style tips with hair is to ditch the curling iron. It creates curls that look unnatural and too tightly wound. They also do not last long..unless you plan on putting pounds of hair spray on..
Buy a set of hot curlers. They can be very cheap (some more expensive) but for the most part..they all get the job done.
These curlers create a more natural curl that stays longer. Just heat up for 20-30 minutes, roll in and finish getting ready. After about 10-15 minutes, unroll and you will have gorgeous curls that look NATURAL and stay LONGER. Only a little bit of spray is needed.
Now you may not want to sport a whole head of curls just on your atypical day. So i suggest curling your hair, brushing it out and rocking an awesome curly pony tail…
It looks chic and polished but it looks very natural at the same time. You won’t feel over done but you will look very classy and beautiful!
Give it a try! Feel like a Diva!
