What does summer mean to you? For me, it means lots of fun in the sun and lots of outdoor time. Luckily for me, summer comes round a bit earlier here in Georgia. So, I get to take advantage of summer a bit earlier than most.
I figured now would be a perfect time to share my summer must-haves which also double up as great summertime gift ideas. For my book lovers, coffee and wine lovers, and even beauty lovers… I have a little something for everyone and I am positive that you will love them all.
I’ve been sharing a lot about the Vita Liberata Beauty Blur Skin Tone Optimiser on stories and it is amazing. The Beauty Blur Skin Tone Optimiser is a 3-in-1 tinted face primer that evens out skin tone. After using this you will be left with a radiant glow. I’m in the color latte and I enjoy using this with and without makeup. When I used it as a primer, I noticed that my makeup looked very fresh and glowy (not oily at all). It gives the illusion that you are glowing from within and minimizes the appearance of blemishes. It is a must-have for the summer.
Many of us had canceled vacations. I always look forward to beach trips so that I can get a tan but that didn’t happen so I tried out the Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Mist with the Luxury Tanning Mittand now I have a beach tan without leaving my home. I have tried many self-tanners before but this one dries so fast! You can also customize your tan and how well it conditions your skin. To use: Shake well, apply the mist to the mitt, and then apply to exfoliated and clean skin. Be sure to work upwards using long circular movements. After 8 hours, your tan should be fully developed. Lastly, rinse your skin off with warm water and avoid any oily shower gels. Be sure to keep your skin moisturized so that your tan looks its best. This tanning mist is awesome besides it’s also a safe way to get a tan right at home and achieve a healthy glow. Be sure to take advantage of the buy one, get one 50% off sale happening at Ulta now!

Let’s talk nails. I love sharing my manicures on the ‘gram but since the world went into lockdown, I’ve been experimenting with my nails and trying out different products. I came across the Cindi Nailsmanicure system. This manicure system is meant to last about 7-14 days with its unique formula base. First I must mention that these polishes are non-toxic and vegan friendly. Cindi Nails has been voted #1 by professionals and they are committed to women’s health. If you are looking for pretty neutral colors, I would recommend Ballet Shoes and Cheektini. I knew you guys would love this so Cindi Nails was so kind to offer my readers an exclusive discount!

4C Energy Stix
As many of us are spending more time outdoors, it is so important to stay energized. I love having 4C Energy Stix on hand. With these, you can easily have a low calorie and lightly carbonated energy drink on the go. Since it is sugar-free, you won’t have had the sugar crash. These are perfect, convenient, and cost a fraction of what you would pay for Redbull. This pack includes three delicious flavors. While they all taste amazing, I always go for the Berry flavor!
For anyone who knows me, knows I love cute cups, mugs, and tumblers. A summer must-have is a cup that will keep your beverages cold for hours. The Swig Stemless Wine Cup from the Party Animal collection is a must-have and also makes a perfect gift. If you love animal print, this one is for you! It will keep your drink cold for up to 9 hours and hot for up to 3 hours. These are perfect for poolside days or hanging out in the backyard.
Another favorite of mine, the Swig Travel Mug. This design is from the Swirled Peace collection. This travel mug is perfect for on the go, holds up to 18oz, fits most standard cup holders. This will also keep drinks cold up to 9 hours and hot up to 3 hours.
Swig has always been my go-to for gifts and even to update my little cup collection. They have amazing prints and solid colors to chose from. Click here to save 10% off your purchase and to shop all of the beautiful prints.
Book lovers, this is for you…
Lastly, if you are looking for a good backyard read, I would recommend The Summer Villa from Harper Collins by Melissa Hill. It’s about three friends that spent a summer at Villa Dolce Vita on the Amalfi Coast. While their secrets from their past come to the surface, each woman has to face these secrets to find happiness again. It is such a great read and such a great women’s fiction novel that you will enjoy. This book is also a great gift for a mom, daughter, or even your bestie.
I hope you guys enjoyed my Summer finds of the month. Be sure to share if you purchase anything from my favorites. I’d love to see it! I hope that you all continue to enjoy your summer!
