Summer is hear and I have definitely been feeling it. I live just north of Seattle so the weather here is very mild but I just had two trips to areas where the heat is up there. I went to my hometown in Brandon, MS the second week of July and Hawaii for the last week of July. The temps both places were mid-high 90s and the humidity in Mississippi nearly killed me. I am going to share a few things that got me through it and kept me looking and feeling my most chic!
Toes are out during the summer so you definitely wanna have them looking fantastic. That includes trending nail polish shades. The Butter London Lost in Leisure Lacquer set is limited edition, but is PERFECT for the warmer months. If there were ever four shades that remind you of vacationing some place tropical it is this set.
My favorite shade of the 4 is definitely the one named Rock Candy. My favorite treat during the summer has been shaved ice since I was a little girl. I always get the flavor “Strawberries & Cream” and once it gets melted down the color looks JUST LIKE this nail polish. Definitely get your hands on this set at butterlondon.com and if you use the code BabbleBoxx2016 you get 20% off of your first purchase.
Being outdoors when the weather is hot tends to leave us smelling less fresh than we would normally like. Having a perfume on hand to make sure you are smelling your best is always a plus. The new fragrance Tempting by Sofia Vergara is perfect for every day. I can detect juicy exotic fruits, florals, and even some wood notes. The mixture is seriously one that I think anyone would enjoy.
The 1 oz fragrance is sold exclusively through Perfumania right now and the 3.4 oz (as well as the 1 oz) will hit major retailers in September.
I know I mentioned our toes being out during the summer, but our legs tend to be showing more too. I personally dislike shaving because within the day I already feel the stubble coming back. Waxing is a way to remove the hair from the cuticle which helps it stay gone longer. I have been using products from Nad’s for years now and the new Exfoliating Body Wax Strips have me super intrigued.
Did you know that exfoliating your skin before waxing gives you the ultimate smooth finish? These give you an invigorating 2-in-1 exfoliating and waxing experience that you can’t get anywhere else. Check out where you can get them near you on MoreNads.com!
Skincare during the summer months is serious business; honestly, when is it not? I have been using the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel for the last few weeks and I have to say that I have enjoyed it. I took it with me on two summer trips and I love that it felt cool to the touch and it didn’t feel heavy or thick. It is pretty unique so I am going to share with you some words directly from the brand.
What makes Vichy Aqualia range so special?
Vichy’s Aqualia range is infused with the highest concentration of Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water of all the Vichy products (10%). A miracle of nature from the preserved region of the Auvergne, rich in 15 minerals; it helps strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier function to help protect skin against aggressors.
Combined with Aqualia Thermal’s unique 48 hours Dynamic Hydration technology to help distribute & lock water in all facial zones, for an immediate sensation of comfort and long lasting 48 hours hydration.

Last but definitely not least is cooling off from the heat with a tasty beverage. Sparkling Water has becoming part of my routine in the last year. The reason being is because the fizzy water actually helps me curb my soda intake. I tend to pick up the ones from La Croix pretty often because they have 0 calories and 0 sweeteners.
The LaCroix Cúrate flavors are a little different, as they are inspired by two cultures: French & Spanish. The LaCroix Cúrate family includes 6 flavors, all of which come in 12oz. tall cans, and all of which have slightly bolder flavors than LaCroix. I REALLY like the bolder flavors. Check out all the flavors they have at www.lacroixwater.com!
