2018 Summer Beauty Favorites from Beauty Brands

 

We all know the summers here in Kansas can be sultry so I have partnered up with Beauty Brands to talk about my favorite summer beauty products that help me beat the heat!

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream This one is a game changer it is super lightweight and helps moisturize your hair while creating a soft look for natural styles. This is the perfect oil to brush through your hair to help flyaway’s- do not use a lot it can make your hair greasy if you apply too much!

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray– With this heat I know I do not like to blow dry my hair all time so I use the Bumble and Bumble Surf spray to create a natural beauty look. You apply it to damp hair and let it air dry. I love keeping this in my bag to spray in my hair after getting it wet from the pool so all day I will keep the natural wave.

Luther clearly wanted to be in on the shoot as well.

 

Living Proof Restore Instant Protection- If you have never used a product to protect your hair from your heating tools I recommend this. It not only helps protect against the heat but as well against UV rays and humidity (Y’all the humidity here has been HORRIBLE so this will be your best friend!)

NYX Matte Makeup Spray– This matte spray provides a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is very lightweight and ensures that your makeup stays put throughout the day/ night.  All you have to do is spray this over your face after you apply your makeup, it’s that easy!

Make Up Eraser– Do you ever struggle with taking off your makeup? I know I have. I ditched the makeup removers that burn my eyes and found my self the Make Up Eraser. I wish I would have recorded myself using this for the first time because my mind was blown. It removes EVERYTHING, waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation you name it! All you have to do is get it wet and wipe off your face to get a clean face, I of course then follow with my cleanser. To clean the Make Up Eraser  you simply throw it in the wash every week.

SuperGoop! Everyday Sunscreen- Ever since starting my blog I became more aware of my skin and making sure I am using good products especially ones that protect my face from the sun. I have been religious with sunscreen. This lightweight everyday sunscreen you can put on before applying your makeup. Plus is it is oil-free so it doesn’t make your face feel like it has anything on it! It’s a win, win! Protect your skin people!

Tart Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof 4-in-1 Black Mascara Last but not least, on the far right we have one of my favorite mascaras that stays on through rain, sweat and tears! It lengthens, curls and volumizes as well as conditions your eye lashes to give you stunning lashes. Perfect mascara for a pool day!

My morning “me time” just got even sweeter!

This post has been sponsored by Coffee-mate® Creamers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We are halfway to the weekend and I am so ready to unwind. Do you live for the weekends like me? I think I look forward to the weekend when Monday morning arrives, ha! This weekend I could not be more excited to relax and sip on some coffee featuring my new favorite creamers.

Are you a coffee lover? Do you like to add a little sweetness to your coffee? Well, guess what, Coffee-mate® Creamers just came out with 3 new dessert-inspired flavors at Walmart and I am obsessed. Oh my yum. One thing you should know about me, and if you don’t, now you’ll know… I LOVE to shop whether that be for groceries, clothes, or basics, and Walmart is one my go-to places. They have affordable prices, variety and all the goods that make them a one-stop shop for any needs on your list. And they happen to carry the aforementioned creamers, too.

Coffee-mate® Creamers just released a line of Dessert Creamers in Coconut Caramel Latte creamer, Toasted Marshmallow Mocha, and Cookies & Cream flavors. Talk about melting in your mouth!  I may be a rare breed but I am not a “black coffee” type gal–give me all the sweets to add to my morning coffee and I’ll be happy! You can head to your local Walmart and purchase one of these 3 scrumptious flavors, heck get all three! You can find them in the dairy section. Oh! And be sure to look for the Coffee-mate in-store sampling event happening May 10-13th, too.

If I could describe each of these Coffee-mate® Creamers in one word…

Coconut Caramel Latte- Devine
This one instantly turns your simple, at-home coffee into a trendy and expensive-tasting latte. The coconut and caramel are the perfect compliment to each other. And the flavors kind of remind me of my favorite Girl Scout cookie.

Toasted Marshmallow Mocha- Savory
This creamer reminds me of summer nights by the firepit. It is the perfect amount of sweet!

Cookies & Cream- Delectable
Like ice-cream in your coffee–I just can’t get enough of this flavor! This one might be my favorite.

My weekend morning routine consists of this gal waking up to the fresh smell of the coffee pot going- thanks to Andrew. When I smell that, my feet are on the ground and I am up, and now that I have Coffee-mate® Creamers at the tip of my fingers, I get even more excited to wake up!

I choose to start my weekend on a positive note by creating “me time.” Whether that is reading a book (I honestly had to start my book over because it has been so long since I have picked it up), scrolling through social media (my guilty pleasure), or simply taking a deep breath by looking out the window, I find time to do one of those many things with my coffee in hand.

I am a huge advocate for creating “me time” I sometimes am the WORST at making that time for myself but when I do, boy do I love it. Balance is key on the weekends for me. That consists of just enough coffee to get my day started!

Is it just me or are all these colors and images on the packaging an eye-catcher? The packaging just makes my mouth water…

One thing I am excited about is to try these is in my iced coffee when the weather gets warmer here in KC. It really has not felt like Spring here, which is super disappointing.

Head to your nearest Walmart location to purchase the newest creamers added to the Coffee-mate® Creamers family. And head here  for even more inspiration and details about the new Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers!
