Manicure Monday: Dripping Paint

Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm introducing a new weekly series that I will be staring. Manicure Monday! You probably heard of this via Instagram or Twitter, right? Well, that's how I got the idea for this series! Every week I will be sharing what I'm currently wearing on my nails whether it's a fun artsy design or a new beautiful nail polish color. So now you can look forward to some more nail polish related posts!

For my first Mani Monday post I am sharing the nails I did myself for my birthday yesterday. Enjoy!
I wanted a simple yet cute and colorful look that would go great for my birthday so I did this dripping design. I was going for a ice cream dripping look but it looks way more like paint dripping. Either way I love this look!

My Summer Essentials

 I hope you guys are all having a wonderful summer! In honor of summer I will be sharing my beauty essentials for the summer with you all. These products are all must haves for me and I cannot live without them or I will melt, stink, and not look good at all! Enjoy!

Stila Bronzing Powder: I don't normally use bronzers that much but one time you can catch me using them is during the summer. You can create a beautiful summer glow using a bronzing powder.

Supergoop! Sunscreen Day Cream: Sunscreen is absolutely important to use everyday! My favorite brand is Doctor T's Supergoop! Their products are non greasy, fragrance free, and silky smooth. I highly recommend their products!

Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum: If you have any sunburn spots this serum will help reduce any reddish burnt areas.

Revlon Lash Potion in Waterproof: Waterproof mascaras are important to wear during summer because you don't want your mascara to get washed away by sweat or water.

Maybelline Baby Lips Quenched with SPF: Protecting your lips is just as important as protecting your skin from the sun. I like to keep two SPF lip products with me during summer. This one comes out easily so I can put some on whenever my lips feel dry.

Supergoop! Acai Fusion Lip Balm with SPF 30: This other lip balm is a squeezable but works just as good as the Baby Lips one.

Oil-Absorbing Sheets: An absolute must! These sheets will absorb any oily spots you get during the day.

LUSH Eau Roma Toner Water: This is a spray toner that can refresh your face on those hot summer days. I like to take this with me everywhere I go just in case I need a light mist of water.

Etude House 8 in 1 CC Cream: I wear BB creams on a daily basis but for summer I decided to start using CC creams. This is my first one and it's pretty good. If you don't know what a CC cream is it's basically a very light coverage BB cream. If you would like a post on CC creams let me know!

China Glaze Neon and On and On Nail Polish: I love using bright bold nail polishes during summer. This one is my new favorite summer polish, it's a bright neon pinkish coral color that screams fun! Check out my full post on summer nail polishes here.

Got2B Beach Trippin' Waving Spray: Wavy beach hair seems to be the most popular hair style during summertime. Using a spray with sea salt can help you  achieve those mermaid waves with just a few sprays.

Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof: This is my new favorite deodorant because it works incredible! This stuff won't make your armpits sweat at all and makes them smell fresh instead! I high recommend this product!

What are your summer beauty essentials?

What's In My Summer Bag

I'm finally back from my trip to Florida! I had a wonderful time and am so happy to be back home on my comfy bed! Today I will share with you a "what's in my bag" post but summer themed! These are the things I keep in my bag when I was in Florida. Yes, its the same bag I used in my previous what's in my bag post but I have some different items in this bag. Enjoy and do mind the tacky hotel bedding background.

Kitty in Wonderland card wallet and sunglasses from Forever 21.

Supergoop! AcaiFusion lip Balm with SPF 30, Maybelline Baby Lips Quenched with Sunscreen SPF 20, Maybelline Baby Lips in Melon Mania, Soap and Glory Hand Food, and ear buds.

Coin purse and oil-absorbing sheets and iphone (used to take these pictures).

Do you carry any different items in your bag during summer?

Road Trip Snacks

Today's post is a fun one! I will be sharing the snacks I took on my road trip with me. Of course we stop by to get lunch but these are the snacks that we will be eating during our trip to Florida. I always try to get the healthier treats instead of getting just greasy chips and a soda (which I don't eat either). Take a look below and let me know which snacks you like to eat on long trips.

Snapea Crisps Lightly Salted: One of my favorite crisps! I would highly recommend these if you have not tried them out! You will seriously get addicted to these!

Buddy Fruits Squeezable Pouches: I think these are suppose for babies but I still grab a few each time I go to the grocery store. They are blended fruit in a easy travel friendly pouch. I especially love the ones with coconut milk!

CLIF Energy Bars in White Chocolate Macadamia and Coconut Chocolate Chip: Energy bars are a must have for me when I'm traveling. Since I am going to be in the car the majority of the trip these bars help me stay up instead of sleeping through the whole trip. These are my first CLIF bars but I heard they're really delicious!

Naked Pure Coconut Water: I'm still pretty new to coconut water but I'm going to force myself to like it because of the nutritional benefits! 

Planters Cashews: I love cashews so of course I have to get myself a container of them! 

Lindt Chocolate Sticks in  Cookies and Cream and Strawberry Cheesecake: Probably the most unhealthiest thing in my snack bag are these chocolate sticks by Lindt. I saw these at Target and me and my sisters all got a different flavor. I choose the strawberry cheesecake and my younger sister choose the cookies and cream one but she promised me she would share some of hers with me. 

What do you guys normally eat on road trips?

Mini Asian Beauty Haul

 Today I have a fun mini haul to share with you all today! As you may know I'm really into Asian related things especially beauty things! I've collected these items within the past two months and finally get to show them to you guys. All items were purchases off of ebay. Enjoy! 

Etude House 8 in 1 Multi-Function CC Cream in Glow: CC creams seem to be the newest thing in the beauty market so I decided to pick up this one by Etude House. I got the glow version but they also have a silky one.

Hadalabo Hada Labo Goku Jyun Super Hyaluronic Deep Moisturizing Lotion: Sunnydahye uses this so I decided to try it. This is a very different moisturizer compared to the other creams and gels I have used. It's a liquid but dries with seconds after applied. So far I love it!

The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer: This is another product I decided to pick up because of Sunny (she's my new favorite person on Youtube). I've used this for a couple of weeks and love how it covers up any imperfections such as pimples and other blemishes. It's not so great at covering dark circles though.

Holika Holika Bulgarian Rose Eye Cream: I haven't used a eye cream in a couple of months so I thought it was time to start using one again since I'm turning 20 soon. I've only used this for a few days so I can't say much however I love the light rose scent! This was also recommend by Sunny.

Lioele Deep Pore Cleansing Brush: The last thing I got was the Lioele deep cleansing pore brush. I've heard that deep pore brushes are very popular in Asia so I thought I would give it a chance. I hadn't made up my mind if I like this or not I guess I need to keep using it to find out.

Would you like a review on any of these products?
