Summer Golden Glow

Urban Decay Naked Flushed in “Native”, Essie Nail Polish in “Cocktails & Coconuts”, bareMinerals Minerals Veil, Lipstick Queen Moisturizing Lipstick in “Hang Ten”, Aerin Lipgloss in “Festive”, bareMinerals Faux Tan Body, Urban Decay Naked Skin Illuminating Beauty Balm, bareMinerals Faux Tan Face, Urban Decay Naked Skin Bronzing Beauty Balm

It’s that time of year when everyone is looking for the perfect golden glow without having to sacrifice the health of their skin. I’ve tested out a few different products and selected my favorites to achieve that sun kissed summer look. I’ve been using bareMinerals “faux tan body and faux tan face” a few times every other week to keep up my leftover tan from Mexico. I put it on after I hop out of the shower, wash my hands and let it dry for a few minutes before getting dressed. I’m also loving Urban Decay’s Bronzing Beauty Balm and Illumating Balm (both with SPF) for that perfect dewy, golden, glowing skin. To top it off, I’ve switched up my bronzer with Urban Decay’s “Native” palette that gives just the right amount of color. A soft neutral nail color and lip are the perfect way to compliment all of the beautiful golden shades.

Also, If you’re in the SF area tomorrow, Thursday June 5th from 6-8pm, come stop by Joie on Fillmore for a fun summer styling event & 20% off!) with myself and Nichole from Vanilla Extract. You can find more details here and RSVP to

When the weather is gloomy in SF, we can always count on heading over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin to get our dose of sunshine. One of my favorite spots is Marin Country Mart. They have everything from Intermix, Calypso St. Barth, Hudson Grace and my personal favorite lunch spot, Rustic Bakery.

This Joie chambray top is a staple and I highly recommend buying it while it’s on sale or finding something similar. You will wear it again and again and chambray goes with everything. These little leopard shorts are quickly becoming a favorite as well. They’re high-waisted, lightweight and perfect for those warm weekends!
