July Favorites

Can you guys believe that July is almost over?! My family and I have been spending our time in the Hamptons and I’ve gone back and forth to visit Big Momma in Kentucky. I’ve been searching for some new goodies for you guys and believe me— I found some good stuff. 

In the summer I love anything that gets me through the heat and humidity while looking and feeling my best!

Ole Hendriksen Cold Plunge MaskI discovered this mask a little while ago but I wanted to make sure it did it’s job before I talked about it. Because it’s so hot right now, I tend to sweat a lot which therefore clogs my pores. This mask does a deep cleanse and completely removes the dirt, grime and bacteria. I like to use this about 2-3x a week and I’ve noticed a huge difference in my complexion and excess oil production. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Body Glow PadsI talked about the glow pads for my face in my Summer Favorites YouTube video but these body pads are also game changers. I’ve really been trying to stay out of the sun for the sake of not getting yelled at by Nurse Jamie and Shani Darden. These pads give me the sun-kissed glow that the sun gives you without the sun damage.

Hydrating Sheet Masks Hopping on planes so frequently leaves my skin very dry and flaky. I love to pop on a sheet mask from Sephora, especially the coconut one while I’m on a flight. These sheet masks lock in moisture and when I land, my skin is refreshed to tackle whatever I need to do upon arrival. 

Coconut Hair Mask Speaking of coconut masks, when I was going through Sephora, I saw that they have this new hair mask made up of coconut. When I’m home I like to use Olaplaex once a week but this is great for when you’re traveling. It’s extremely lightweight and won’t take up any space in your carry-on. I gave it a try last week and was so impressed with the results, my hair was silky smooth and hydrated. 

Gucci Raffia Mules The shoe of the season!! You guys know how much I love my Gucci mules. I really feel like I’ve gotten my money out of each pair since I wear them so much! Of course, they came out with a new style and it’s been on my wish list for a minute. They’re the perfect pair for summer with a chic white dress or a pair of shorts and linen blouse. 

Frankie’s Bikini Poppy one pieceOne of the girls who works for me is in her 20’s and is constantly keeping me updated with all of the cool new pieces that I need. This was a suit that she said I “had to have” for the summer. And she was right! This suit literally sucks everything in and is the most flattering. If you’re like me and don’t want your booty out like the suits these days, get the "classic" which is full coverage and size up! I can’t tell you the amount of compliments I’ve received on this suit. 

Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick I always get compliments on my lipsticks but it’s gotten to a whole new level with this new one. Earlier in the summer I asked my makeup artist, Nikki La Rose to tell me which lipstick I need for summer and this one is it. The pink is PINK and I love how compact it is; which is perfect for travel. I currently love the shade "Candy Venom" for the season. 

Tarte Eye & Face PaletteAnother great travel hack is to pack the most minimal makeup possible. I recently discovered this pallet and I’m obsessed. It has everything I could possibly need for my face… contour, powder, blush, you name it! I really don’t know how I lived without it before now. 

Micro Mobility This company asked me a few months ago if they could send my kids some scooters and I thought it’d be the perfect toy for the Hamptons. So I shipped them there and it’s the one thing that all three of my kiddos can do together and have so much fun. While Grey is still very young, they have a mini scooter for those who can’t push themselves yet. This brand is perfect  for all ages.
