Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready.
The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.
I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized.
The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.
So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.
If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.
Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.
For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect!

With spring here and summer around the corner, sunglasses are not only an accessory but a necessity.
I have accumulated quite a collection with blogging and such, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite sunglass resources 🙂

Southern California is scorching hot right now. Minimal, and light-weight clothing is mandatory to beat the heat.

One of the most prevalent apparel items seen this summer, whether it’s meant to be under the radar or not, is the bralette. Usually peeking out under over-sized tees or flowing blouses, these frilly undergarments are making their mark in more than just the lingerie department.
Some of my favorite stores that have enabled me to stock up on several of these lacy apparel additions this season include:
- Forever 21
- American Apparel
- Urban Outfitters
- American Eagle (Aerie)
- Free People
- For Love & Lemons
Depending on how much you are willing to invest, the above list has options for every budget.
