Summer is officially here. We had some gorgeous weather over the weekend and Mr. P&P and I got outside and made the most of it. Brunch on a lilac petal littered patio, strolls by the river, a summery cocktail or three, and a good old soft serve vanilla ice-cream. Divine. I thought I’d share a round up of some of the products I reach for most in the summer months to help overhaul your warm weather routine. This is going to be a long post so you might want to grab a cool drink. Let’s dig in to my summer beauty essentials!
I like to use a leave in conditioner on my hair before applying my styling product. This one was fine. It was not too heavy or greasy. It did not have too much of a scent. I love the Deva Curl shampoo and conditioner that I use but I have to say that this leave-in is nothing special. It does the job but I wasn’t blown away by it and I don’t feel the need to repurchase.
I’m on a bit of a wish list kick lately. I’m not sure why that is, but they sure are fun to put together! Now you and I both know that the last thing I need is more make-up, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wish right? Exactly.
Ok y’all, I am a curly haired lass. That means that I hate my hair, and I always have. I have never wanted anything more than I want long, swishy, straight hair. Alas, it is not meant to be. I’ve recently (within the last two or three years) started coming to terms with the fact that I’m never going to wake up and have straight hair. That means that I have started trying to work with my hair rather than attempting to beat it into straight submission. For the first time in my life I have a really fantastic (read “expensive”) hair cut, and it makes a huge difference. The other thing that makes a difference is product. I’ve tried all kinds, high end, as well as drug store buys. Some of my favourites include Potion 9 by Sebastian, an AG leave-in conditioner, and Morrocan Oil.
