I love the holidays because they give you an extra excuse to experiment with makeup, accessories and, of course, manicures!

Personal confession: Second only to babies, puppies, and babies snuggling with puppies, there’s nothing that gives me quite as joyful a rush as those fleeting moments when I decide to make an unplanned beeline for the nearest beauty supply store, mind and wallet open, pretending for five whole minutes like money grows on trees and I’ll buy anything I can manage to carry up to the counter in two hands. From nail polish, to bronzer to essential oils and bath soaps…and perfumes, and mascaras, and face masks and lip stains and eye lash curlers and those little bottles of Evian spray that I’m totally sure are nothing more than tap water in a can…I would literally spend every last dime in my bank account, every single weekend, on arbitrary beauty products if I knew there’d be no consequences.

With Summer Solstice finally here, the fun is finally beginning! The night gets longer; skin gets darker, life gets better, but hair does not always agree with our feelings towards the summertime. I find my hair really having a mind of its own with the hotter weather. The sweat, humidity, in addition to the heat of blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons make my hair my biggest enemy in the summer. Not until this summer that is, I have finally figured it out! No heat in the heat will keep your hair sane! Braids, buns, and some cute hair accessories still give you that “I just spent hours on my hair” without the actual time being spent.
