July monthly favorites
I am really excited to start doing monthly favorites! I have been more so experimenting with beauty products this month - thank you Amazon Prime haha... My skin has been a little crazy, it is so sensitive to the weather changing. Even when I travel, I break out depending on the humidity and climate. This year in Canada the weather has been so hot, heat warnings, air quality warnings and it has also effected my skin. I will share more about that below.
I also wrote a blog post about my summer makeup routine and how to make your makeup stay on your face! haha.. during these hot months. I also included some celebrity, beauty blogger tips that I love.
Check out that post here -> Summer Makeup Routine
I am also going to be talking about my fashion favorites.I know a lot of people are slowly starting to go out, wanting to look cute, as do I! So I will be sharing with you some of my most versatile, on trend for summer clothing pieces that will never go out of style.
Y'all really love when I talk about skincare so I am making an effort to do that more -> These are my everyday products ! my skin care holly grail products :

My favorite thing to do is paint my nails. I hate having chipped nails or no nail polish on at all. Here are some of my favorite summer nail polish colours.
I like to add glitters to change up my nails. I get a lot of complements on the gold nail polish glitter I use.
I also included the Nails Inc nail growth nail polish. This has saved my nails after acrylic nails. They grew, got stronger and after using this polish for 2 months I do not have to use it as often as I used to. When I started I used it once or twice a week as a base coat. Now I use it as a base and top coat. I find my nail polish lasts longer if I do so.
FASHION FAVORITES !
This summer has been all about lounge wear, working at home and banana bread. However, I have been dressing up everyday. Summer fashion trends have been: white dresses, polka dots, denim shorts, biker shorts, sun dresses etc...
MY FAVORITE DISTRESSED JEAN SHORTS ! so light weight perfect for a hot day . I paired it with this could shoulder top such a great staple in my closet. This belt helps to tie the look together. Belts just really elevate your look!
Fashion Tip - elevate your style with accessories
I also wore these leopard print slides, it makes the look fun and adds a pop to the outfit. This shoulder bag is my moms but I linked similar ones below. Shoulder bags are a huge fashion trend, they have been in style before in the 90's and have made a come back!

Now that things are starting to open back up pre-covid we can go to the beach. Summer is beach wear. I love to rock a cute swim suit with a fun beach bag. Wicker bags, wicker beach bags are still trending in fashion. I added some amazon fashion, banana republic and other brands to my top beach bags.
As for swim suits and beach wear I included one piece swim suits and bikinis. I love sets that you can mix and match from shein, forever 21 and zaful.
