Glow: Blonde & Bronzed for Summer

At the end of spring, I went from an auburn hair color to a light red with medium #blonde highlights. I'm starting to think that blondes really do have more fun - especially in #summer! I've found myself more drawn towards #blush and #bronzer products lately, too - all I wanna do is glow, glow, glow.... and smell nice too.

Not only does this #dryshampoo do its job in refreshing my hair, it acts as a subtle, malleable #styling agent as well - kind of like a very lightweight #hairspray. Best of all, it has a #platinum finish, which takes my medium-blonde highlights to the next level. I spritz a little on when I'm feeling like I wanna glam up my look and brighten my hair, so it's almost like highlights-over-highlights. My new addiction...

Pacifica Suncare Coconut Probiotic Mineral Bronzing Sunscreen Spray SPF 30
Pacifica Suncare Coconut Probiotic Mineral Bronzing Sunscreen Spray SPF 30

If you asked me years ago whether I'd ever get into "bronzing," my SPF-90-covered gothy teenage self would have said "helllllno." But I'm over that stage of being pasty white - yet also not looking for that fake-tanned Real Housewives kinda look. In between we find a subtle, brilliant #bronze offered by this Pacifica Suncare #Coconut #Probiotic #Mineral Bronzing Spray. This is nothing like "Spray Tan;" it's just a good-quality sunscreen that adds a tiny bit of a #boost to your summer tan-lust. Sprays on fairly evenly though I do find myself rubbing it around to make sure I'm all covered. For fair skinned girls like myself, it offers the security of a decent #SPF combined with the brilliance of a slightly bronzed-out body. Goes great with #blonde. Bonus points: it doesn't even smell like sunscreen!

No7 Lash Impact Ultra Mascara

The packaging of this product just screams glow & #glam! I got it in "brown/black," ditching years of addiction to blacker-than-black mascara in favor of a more subtle, lighter shade that looks more natural with my fair skin and blonde locks. For the price, it's a really good mascara - not crazy about the wand, and it does take some time to settle (so don't rush the application), but once it's set you're in for a lashalicious treat - long-lasting, smudgeproof, fully-voluminous and long lashes.

Redken Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free Shampoo for Unisex
Redken Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free Shampoo for Unisex

I just love the name of this product - "blonde idol." Just owning it makes you feel like a million bucks with that title, doesn't it? I've been using this for about a month and find that a little bit goes a long way. It's #silky and #smooth, doesn't dry out or tangle up my hair and keeps my #blonde in check without letting it get too brassy. Love the packaging, too, & my hairstylist friends always say Redken is a go-to product line so you can't go wrong.

This #bronzer/#blush duo is perfect for summer and goes great with my #fairskinned complexion and #blonde highlighted hair. I love the #glow of the pink mixed with the subtle shading of the bronzer. Careful, a little bit goes a long way - a quick swab of the big brush and a sweep over cheeks, a dab on the forehead, center of nose and chin and you're set to rock the summer streets glammed up!

#Light and #refreshing, I am addicted to this fragrance and feel that it creates a calm, glowing aura around me. #Grapefruit has long been one of my favorite scents, here presented in a subtle mixture with my newfound love #verbena and a hint of #musk. It's not an overpowering scent, so I find myself applying it a few times a day for a pick-me-up without smelling like a perfume factory.
