finding a summer look

It's summer here in the hot desert sun and I have been playing around with some looks to get an ideal summer look!

Here's what I have come up w/ so far:

Could you tell that I got my hair cut... I don't know if I like it but I usually don't like my hair cut. It takes me a few weeks to get used to it. The layers are kinda weird...

I was going for the tanner but natural look.

I think what sets off the look is my lip color - and I think this is a really awesome lip color:

It is the Palladio Herbal Tinted Lip Balm in Golden Pink that the youtube guru - emilynoel83 - has raved about for the longest time. It is a hard color to take a picture of because it reflects light but it is definitely a bronzy-neutral pink kinda color. It goes on pretty sheer but it gives you that bronzy look which is great for any summer. One thing about this product is that I don't find it that moisturizing - not as moisturizing as my Burts Bees or CO Bigelow's lip glosses. So I suggest putting a balm first. Also, when I first opened it, it had a really strong smell and the taste isn't so great either. Interestingly enough, I've had it for 2 months now and I don't notice it anymore. Perhaps I've gotten used to it or it had gone away. No matter, the issue is resolved and alas I can fully enjoy this product.

Besides this, I keep my eyeshadow light and bronzers are a must! I would put some highlighters on too but the blush I had on that day was already kinda shimmery.

Now I am off to look for more comfortable things for the summer to wear. All I know is that I cannot handle jeans anymore. IT IS TOO HOT!!!

Also, my family and I are going on a cruise - from LA to Mexico!!! - and so new dresses are a must!!! Ha ha - yeah, I'm planning to live in bermuda shorts, tanks tops, and dresses all summer long. Doesn't sound bad - does it?

Oh, and update on job: nothing yet... :( ** BIG OLD SAD FACE ** Has anyone ever seen the movie "The Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman (so sexy when he was young!! I still love that man though") ?? I feel like that's what I'm doing right now - just lying around the house not doing much. Maybe I'll have an affair w/ someone... ha ha - yeah, no, I'm not doing that.

Have you seen "Post Grad" w/ Alexis Bledel?? Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel too... It was a horrible movie that I was forced to watch on the plane to Hawaii. Ha ha - good times!!

AND FINALLY - I am trying to stay away from facebook for at least a week! You know, when you get bored, you go on facebook and then suddenly you find yourself stalking some people (oh come on people, I know I'm not the only one that do this!) and it just isn't healthy! Ha ha... so, I am hoping to stay away from facebook for awhile. Maybe when summer gets a little busier *FINGERS CROSSED!!* I won't have to force myself to stay away. With that said, I went on last night... ugh... but I will start today! Stay away from facebook for a bit. I honestly hope people won't try to contact me there... well you know what, there is always the phone.

Thanks for reading! I promise to update way more - cuz that is one of my summer goals.

But now let me know something:
What is your summer look??? Let me know - share you secret!


  1. Very cute summer look!

    Have fun on your cruise and good luck with the job hunt!

  2. You look so radiant! :)

    Since we don't have summer here, I've never really changed my makeup routine nor the way I dress. Here in Indonesia I think people wear jeans all year long. Lol. So yeah, it must be really hot there?

    I think summery clothes are very cute though. You should definitely get them. ;)

    And LOL I loved The Graduate! I agree, Dustin Hoffman looked hot back then. :D

  3. I like your new haircut and your smile. :D A family cruise sounds really fun! Good luck on the job hunt!
