DIY: Healthy Summer Drinks

Lifestyle

Happy Canada Day and with July 4th right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with refreshing summer drinks to cool off during the hot summer days. Keeping yourself hydrated and well-nourished during the summer is extremely important, especially since you’ll be losing water from sweating. Instead of the plain and boring water, you can definitely add a little pizzazz to make a delicious beverage. Most of the ingredients I use are items you can find in the grocery store, and they’re all natural. With that said, I decided to share with you some of my favorite summer drinks recipes, that are both good for the body and for the skin!

Cara Delevingne is iconically known for her eyebrows!! Thanks to her and the on-going trend, we’re all doing whatever we can to get those thick, luscious brows. A lot of us struggle with sparse areas or eyebrows that don’t grow back easily.  It has been highly requested that I share with you guys what I do to make my eyebrows look full and lush. In a recent Get Ready With Me Video I asked people to comment below with what they use to grow their brows and I told them I would provide a blog post with my experience.

I know many of you requested for a sweat proof and waterproof makeup tutorial, so I decided to film one for my Five Minute Friday series! Make sure you’re subscribed (it’s FREE) to my blog below to gain early access and watch it first!  So I tried my very best to edit today’s video, but it’s actually 7-minutes long. Don’t be mad! I just wanted to cover as much as I could about my sweat proof routine. For this post, I listed alternatives that wasn’t mentioned in my tutorial; these products are some of my recommendations, and they’ve definitely proved to be long-lasting even after sweating. Summer is definitely the season for the beaches and outdoor activities, so it’s important to use products that say “waterproof” to ensure all-day wear.

Beauty

Last week I was able to play with the Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar . We can use makeup to change the appearance of our eyes; we can make them look bigger or smaller with tricks, we can enhance certain colors in our eyes, or just make them pop and shimmer. How do we do that? With eyeshadow, of course! I’ve been having so much fun with the Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar, which allows you to create your own collection of eyeshadows through a multitude of options suitable for every taste.

Top 5 Summer Bronzers

Beauty
top 5 summer bronzers

As lovely as the summer sun feels on our skin, we have to remember that in large doses, it’s not good for our skin. That’s why sunscreen should be part of your daily routine. Even though we need to protect ourselves from harmful UV rays, some women grapple with wanting to be healthy but also wanting that bronzed look. Since summer’s around the corner, here are my top five bronzers (in no particular order) for you to consider to help you achieve that coveted golden summer glow. Just so you know, these bronzers are for adding a nice glow to your skin. If you’re looking to contour, I suggest finding a matte bronzer to give shape to your face. These shimmery bronzers I’ve recommended for you are absolutely wonderful for some summer shine, and aren’t too frosty so you don’t need to worry about it looking caked.

AVON Summer Favorites

Beauty

The summer sun will be beaming on us very soon, which means beach days, fruity cocktails, and lots of sweaty days. It can be difficult to wear makeup during the summer because it can melt off so easily. You may even feel like there isn’t much of a purpose in wearing much makeup for fear that it’s just going to smudge and come off. But how about those summer weddings? Those nights on the patio of a bar with your girlfriends? I think you’ll be missing out on wearing a lot of fun, bright colors if you don’t consider that you CAN wear makeup during the summer if you use the right products – like some AVON treasures I found!
