beat the heat

this post is a tiny bit funny considering the weather we've had the past 2 days. utah weather is always weird so i shouldn't be surprised that winter showed up again in june. i already had this post planned before the weather went crazy so let's all just pretend like it's actually still summer here ok?!?

i love summer! i live for summer all year long. i know seasonal depression is a real thing, but i always joke (but not really a joke) that i have seasonal anger disorder. winter makes me so mad. each time the seasons change i feel like i need to stock up on the essentials. my summer essentials include
1. bright summer nail polish (i'm currently obsessing over OPI and Essie neon collections)
2. an over sized beach towel for all the time spent at the pool
3. mix and match swim suit separates
4. suncreen/tanning lotion with enough SPF to lose the guilt of being in the sun
5. good water bottle

So, there you have it! My must have, beat the heat, essentials. I'm sure you all have your summer essentials too, right? Well, if you haven't stocked up yet, don't you stress! Why?

  14. Some new books for reading by the pool--favorite way to spend a summer day! :)

  15. I would like to get a Steamer off of amazon, need one badly!
