Summer Beauty Faves

Tarte Pearl Glow

Great for an on the go whitening session. If you have a big date, a wedding to attend, maybe just to brush up after a coffee date with a friend, this is a great solution. Simply twist the bottom for the solution to be released onto the brush and swipe over teeth. It feels silly but you just have to smile until it dries (45 seconds - 1 minute) and then continue throughout your day. I like to brush my teeth afterwards because I don't like the texture but either with do!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

I've been looking for a moisturizer that doesn't 1. sit on my dry skin and stay and 2. doesn't make my skin too greasy. I just need the right amount of hydration. I use Beautycounter's Countermatch moisturizer for my face but my forehead needs a little bit more attention,. This Repair cream works miracles! Truly! Also, it's super affordable!!

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

I use this as lotion on the tops of my legs and near my "bum bum" to help tighten and firm. Seriously, I know it sounds a little nuts, I can see/feel the difference. Great to swipe on before the pool, lake or beach!

Rose Water Spray

Another great help for my dry skin out here in Northern California! I spray this on my fresh face after the shower, before applying makeup and after my nighttime routine. It's wonderful! The fresh smell of rose wakes me up! If you want to take it to another level, store it in the fridge to make it a fresh cool feel when you get in from the summer heat!

Highlighter + Bronzer Stick

I mean, a lifesaver when I want to either spend time doing my makeup or run out the door. I apply a little of the bronzer on the sides of my nose, the corners of my forehead and below my cheekbones and blend with my middle and pointer finger. For the highlighter, I apply it on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. If I'm wearing lip stick, I also apply it on my cupid's bow.

 

In Portland

Portland’s quirky but not super weird, colorful but still tasteful and has the perfect blend of local favorites and classics when it comes to shopping.
Seriously, you must add Portland to your bucket list if it’s not already there.

A shortsleeve sweater (like this one) is perfect for this misty + foggy, chilly summer weather. I don’t mind the rain when it means I can wear my favorite rain boots 🙌🏻

Safe and sound in PORTLAND! So excited about venturing around a new city with a close gal friend of mine! 

If you’re going on a trip soon, you NEED to know about Barefoot Dreams sweaters. They’re the softest sweater you could ever imagine which makes the perfect loungewear for a flight. These leggings have side pockets for holding your phone, boarding pass and ID. Genius! + gotta have those tennis shoes in case you need to run to your next flight.

Blue Light Glasses

It’s almost been a week in California and we are loving it! I’ve been cranking out some projects (personal and for clients, secret and public) and cannot wait to share more!

With me being on my computer or iPad most of the day, my eyes are screaming at me by bedtime + my brain is still going nuts. But I’ve found a solution and we have GOT to talk about these glasses.

They seem to be 🔥 around this corner of Instagram since putting them on my stories yesterday! Basically they block your eyes from the blue light in your screens leaving yourself not so wired at the end of the day 🙌🏻 plus, they’re only $30!!!

You can get the link for them and others I love (and this cutie sweater) by finding me in the @liketoknow.it app!

Casual Date Night Outfit

Today we spent some time settling in and then I pampered myself with an extensive at-home spa day  (see my stories for more)

To end our first day here @thomasawtrey and some friends of ours grabbed pizza in town 🍕 

Loving this little ranch valley of ours and can’t wait to spend our 4th summer here 🙌🏻 🐄 🌲 

Obsessed with this new peplum pullover for chilly evenings. This texture is 😍 comes in lots of colors! And these gold slides are $20!

My In-N-Out Order + Outfit

The inaugural “we made it to California” trip to In-N-Out 🍔 🍟 
After a long flight and a late night, we’re on our drive to the ranch! Can’t wait to settle in, take a few deep breaths and make this place home again. California, we’re back and so glad to see you ☀️
P.S. this sweater is the best to have to thrown on in airports + while traveling or just for fun 🙌🏻 linking it in my bio + stories. Plus, it’s on sale 🎉

What I get: a protein style burger (aka lettuce burger), fries and a coke. Try the neopolitan shake!
