Summer Favorites

Hi Everyone!

So summer is really truly coming to an end *cries* but this summer has been a great one and I have definitely checked off a lot off my summer bucket list!

To wrap up the summer I wanted to share a few of my summer favorites with you because this summer has been quite a minimalistic summer for me and I have stuck to the quality over quantity rule. In other words, I’ve found a few products that I absolutely love and those are all I’ve been using. So… since I love these products so much I thought it might be cool for you guys to see them!

  • Lilah Beauty – This summer I think I have really fallen back in love with all natural brands. I’ve always been interested in being green, but I never really looked into eco-friendly brands. But when I was looking for a new makeup brand and was introduced to Lilah.b I was OBSESSED. Their products left my face with a dewy, natural look that made me feel amazing, and their products did not irritate my skin at all. I have very sensitive skin and tend to break out a lot, so I usually shy away from wearing a lot of makeup unless I really have to. But recently I’ve wanted something to use that will make me feel good and does not damage my skin. Lilah.b is perfect!! Honestly to anyone going through a hard skin time please please please try this brand, not only are they amazing but almost all their products are vegan and they’re all animal cruelty-free! They’re also just really wonderful to work with,  whenever I tag them or write about them they are sure to leave a comment which I think is just so sweet! Also be sure to check out their products now, as they are currently having a 20% off sale!!! Find them here: @lilahbeauty or here

  • Charlie The Shop – Before this summer I was having a small dilemma with clothes. I was just so tired of going into a shop and seeing the same styles and quality in every single store. So when I traveled to Lisbon and came across Charlie The Shop I was over the moon. My style is quite simple but elegant, and I like to wear clothes that are good quality. Charlie the shop offers all of this! It was totally by accident that we came across this store. We were walking down a street and saw the window and decided to take a look inside. I can tell you I went crazy looking through the racks of clothes because there were about a billion things I loved. This store is an independent boutique, which means that their clothes have a unique style. Their clothes also come in one size, but I can tell you that this isn’t a problem because their clothes are adaptable and quite flowy. The women in the shop were really nice as well, helping me with my clothes and offering advice. I’ve basically been wearing their clothes all summer long, and I would definitely go back if I could!

  • Tata Harper Skin Care – this is another one of my favorite natural brands and something that greatly benefits my skin. I can tell you that since I started using this brand of skincare I have not had one breakout. Their products literally smell like you’re in a spa and are really amazing for your skin. They’re all natural and non-toxic, and they’re a sustainable business! WOW. They grow all their own produce on a farm in Vermont, which is what they use in their products ( I think that’s super cool!!) Their products are a little pricey, but they are definitely worth the cost. Find them here: @tataharperskincare or here
