Proper Menswear

I rarely discuss menswear, or anythign realted to mens fashion- and in honor of my Fashion Friday post tomorrow, I thought I should dedicate a little time to this! I love bowties, polos, khakis (clean pressed or slightly distressed), faded colors, bright colors, and madras. In short, I am a firm believer that real men wear seersucker.

I Want Beach Hair Too!

Although I am not a huge fan of the beach (I find the sand to be irritating on my very delicate skin), I do adore the look of just having freshly gone to beach, with freshly sun-kissed hair and a summer glow! And the summer is obviously the time when most of us actaully consider putting down the flat irons and picking up the wave enhacing spray (try Blow's Beach Blow Texturizing Mist- it has the smell of a delicious girly product, and enough hold to actually hold your waves and curls throughout the day)!
  
I love how carefreee and loose it looks, plus it is so easy on your hair- and if you actually are exposing your hair to a lot of heat and sun during these summer days, your hair definitely deserves a break- let it go natural!

To get this look, simply wash and condition your hair with a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to elimate any frizz, and to get your hair as soft and healthy as possible. Then, depending on how naturally frizzy or trangly your hair is, try smoothing a little bit of anti-frizz serum on your hair and comb through evenly. Then simply spritz the wave enhancing mist throughout your hair, comb through if you wish, and scrunch it! You can either let your hair air dry or gently dry it with a diffuser! Voila, you are as cool as can be.

Top 5 Recent Drugstore Finds!

Although after I made this list, I realized most of these items are things I have been using on and off for a long time, but they are always a product that I come back to after trying something else. These are all great basic items that never fail me! Plus, they are cheap and can all be found at your local drugstore!

This is a great eyeliner that is perfect for smudging it up after you apply it. I am not a fan of the stark, clean line of eyeliner, and like to smudge it with my finger after I apply it. It also comes with its own sharpener on the end so that you can make you application precise if need be!
This is a dense, opaque concealor that is small and compact and perfect for on the go. I also love it for undereye circles, as it is thick enough to cover that area thoroughly. It is also great for touch ups on any blemishes or discoloration. The waterproof factor is perfect for summer, and it helps hold up throughout these sweaty summer days!

This is a great daily conditioner that I always keep in my shower. It instantly removes any tangles my hair has in it, and leaves it smooth and soft as silk after I rinse it out. It smells great, and seems to really moisturize my hair even after it is dry! Definitely the best drugstore conditioner I have ever found, for sure.
I am a sweater. There, I said it. I have always sweat a lot, same as my father and brother. But at least I don't smell while I do it (do I?). I have used probably ever deodorant out there, but this one inparticular has stuck with me. I apply it at night before bed and because it works overnight, I am all set for my early gym sessions the next day! The smell and wetness protection definitely holds up well!
I love these, and it is the only eye makeup remover I will use. One pad takes off all my eye makeup (mascara, liner and shadow)! It is also oil-free, which is key for me- my skin is oily enough without any extra help, and I hate not being able to see clearly out of my eyes following the use of an oily remover- its weird and gross.

Fashion Friday: Falling for Flats

I don't know about the rest of you cool kids, but on a day to day basis I wear flats. I am not one of those girls that can wear heels everyday, and I won't ever be. I will break out heels for a special occasion, a big meeting, or to go out (sometimes), but otherwise I am flats all the way. Luckily, they can be super cute and can make almost any outfit look absolutely adorable. And please remember to check out the rest of the Fashion Friday posts over at Kori's Blonde Episodes. Enjoy!
