Color Alert for Summer: Melon

I’ve been MIA lately…my birthday and school really kept me busy! But I’m back with an important announcement about summer 2018! You might not see a lot of it yet, but I’m predicting that melon is going to be HUGE this summer. I’ve been living on Free People’s website lately, and apricot/melon has been popping up everywhere. With tanned skin, this color is going to POP!melonn

I made a little inspiration board with fun ways to rock this melon color next season. Check out a few of these garments from Free People. Start stocking your wardrobe now with this color. BLUSH PINK IS OUT. MELON IS IN!

Must Have on the Go: Panty Fresh

Introducing the newest and most convenient way to guarantee freshness during long days or period weeks…PANTY FRESH! I was so happy to receive these little packets from Panty Fresh’s founder and creator in the mail. I love that women are creating unique ways to find more comfort during their period cycles. They’re hard enough to deal with, but this little box will make life easier! Finally, a discreet way to freshen up down there all in one packet that you can store in a desk, pocket, or purse. Great for the workplace, travel, school, etc! I really wish I had this compact kit on my 18 hour plane ride to Morocco. These are perfect to take into the airplane restroom with you for a quick change or to freshen up! Working women who travel and have long plane rides, THIS IS FOR YOU!

But you know what else I love about this company?! For every post with the hashtag #givebackwithpantyfresh, $1 will be donated to autism research and awareness! Autism awareness has been my personal pageant platform for years now, so this means the world to me, my family, and the autism community. I just love all of these philanthropic organizations that sponsor me!

Arbonne Foundation and Primer=MUST BUY!

My friend from modeling school, Caitlyn Wagler, is a distributor for Arbonne makeup products! She sent me some samples of primer, skin care, and foundation and asked if I would honestly review them. I had my doubts because I rarely use products that aren’t sold in stores, but I have nothing but positive things to say about Arbonne!!!

First of all, everything from Arbonne is vegan certified/cruelty free and formulated to the European Standard, which does not allow harmful chemicals in the products. Also, there is a great variety of cool, neutral, and warm tones.

I used the moisturizing lotion which made my skin feel hydrated and fresh before I put on the makeup. I didn’t even need any face oil or priming spray; the lotion was enough. Then, I put on the primer, and a little bit goes a long way! You won’t have to stock up on a primer for a longgg time with the Arbonne brand! I’m done living off of Sephora primer face samples because I finally found a favorite! Finally, the foundation felt light and airy and didn’t clog or cake up my pores, yet had a completely flawless finish with the best coverage I’ve seen in a while. (And I’ve gone through many products looking for full coverage!)

Check out Arbonne’s face products HERE through Caitlyn’s page, they don’t disappoint! Contact me or connect with Caitlyn on Facebook to buy your next fav face products! Get the primer or foundation at the preferred client price, just $35 each! Get a totally natural formulated product cheaper than the popular foundation choices at Sephora.
