Are you ready?  Here is what was included this month:

Beauty Products:

 NCLA - Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer - who doesn't love a little glitter and sparkle?  This red, white, and blue, festive nail polish was exclusively developed with Pop Sugar!  I think it looks perfect on it's own or painted over any color!  

Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes - I have never tried wipes but honestly have experienced times when I left my house in a hurry and forgot to put on deodorant!  These wipes are perfect to keep in your purse for those kinds of emergencies or just to freshen up as needed!  Plus they are an aluminum free vegan formula!  

Knock Knock...Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up) Compact mirror - this is the perfect size you need when you are going out and don't want to carry a bulky handbag.  Grab your small clutch and pop in the necessities such as your lipstick, credit card, ID, and this compact mirror to check yourself before selfies!  It's cheeky and durable!

Home Products:   

Sisters of Los Angeles "Cheers" Gold Bottle Opener - this is the perfect addition to your fancy bar cart at home! I plan to display it proudly and ensure I always know where to find it - next to my fancy bar glasses and gold striped straws...a cold drink is always best served with fun accessories!

Wild & Wolf Ridley's Games Room "Who Am I" Quiz - I love to invite friends and family over and it's always fun to have some fun games on hand!  This is an easy to play game where you guess the celebrity based on what's listed on the card!  I captured a sample in my video below!  

and the answer is...

Hat Attack Neutral Diamonds Printed Sarong - this is the perfect accessory to throw in your beach bag and use as a swim cover up!  It can be tied in a variety of ways that makes it versatile and functional!  Wear as a long skirt tied at the side, drape it around your torso and tie it around your bust, or wrap it around your neck to wear it as a dress!  I love the neutral color pallet as it will pretty much go with everything!  


Pressels Sriracha - I am a snack addict!  Sometimes I crave salty snacks and sometimes I need something sweet.  What I love about Pressels is they have less fat and sodium than other popular chip products and they are delicious and spicy - which happens to be my other sometimes craving next to chocolate and wine!!

Thanks POPSUGAR for making my day with some fun, useful, and terrific products! I cant't wait to see what will come in July!  

If you haven't tried POPSUGAR's Must Have box of goodies, then you are missing out!  New subscribers can receive $5 off the subscription by using coupon code MUSTHAVE5.  Receive your box in July and post your goodies on Instagram!  I would love to hear what you think about it!

Living In Color

One of my co-workers said to me today, "you wear color really well!"  I assumed she meant this as a compliment, meaning "I love the bright and vibrant colors you wear every day".  The fact of the matter is, I love to wear colorful clothing, lipstick, nail polish, accessories, etc.  One of the easiest ways to change your mood and mindset is simply by changing the colors you choose to wear.   For example, red, orange, and yellow have been shown to evoke a broad range of strong emotions, while colors like blue, purple and green can have a calming effect.

If you're drawn to wearing basic neutrals day in and day out, you may be apprehensive about adding brighter colors to your wardrobe. Don't get me wrong, I love a classic neutral look and often opt for this simple and classy style.  However, if you want to add more color to your life, it’s not hard to work a broad range of shades into your wardrobe via accessories and see an effect. Even a strategic addition of colorful accents can help you self-soothe, or feel more powerful and confident.

A good way to get started for a color "newbie" is to begin with a neutral base.  My favorite neutral base options include a comfortable pair of black leggings, distressed denim, white skinny jeans, black shorts, and/or a blue denim skirt,  These neutral base options can be worn with any color and I consider them part of my closet staples.  

Once you have selected your neutral base, the sky is the limit with color!  In the summertime, I like to wear bright bold colors and neon such as this fun geometric print sleeveless top.  I love the crochet trim detail and the longer length is perfect to wear with leggings.  In the fall, my color wardrobe generally switches to warmer hues inspired by nature...mustard yellow, cranberry, rust, orange...the changing leaves of autumn.  In the wintertime, I prefer beautiful jewel tones such as red, electric blue, hot pink, purple, etc.  Last but not least, spring is a great time to break out soft pastels,,,blush pink, soft yellow, lavender, and baby blue, to name a few.

Keep in mind, your neutral base can also be what you wear on top.  A crisp white blouse, a black peplum top, or a chambray button up are great options when you're looking to wear a pair of colorful printed shorts, pants, skirts, and/or colored denim.  

Once you have overcome the fear of adding more color to your wardrobe, you'll be ready to graduate to the next level and begin color mixing and accessorizing.  I have a few tried a true color mix favorites that I would love to share in a future post!  Until then...

Live Colorfully,
