1) Favorite bronzer for summer? In the summer, I’m all about them bronzers, ’bout them bronzers, so it’s really hard to pick just one! I think the one I reach for the most is my N.Y.C. Sun n’ Bronze Bronzer in “Fire Island Tan”.

2) Favorite summer drink? I really enjoy light, sweet, and refreshing drinks during the summer like sweetened green tea, fruit juices mixed with water, or Snapple. I do love my frappuccinos from Starbucks occasionally, too!

3) Favorite summer lip product? My three most-used lip colors during the summer are L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm in “Caring Coral”, Maybelline Electro Baby Lips in “Pink Shock”, and Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipcolor in “Bare it All”. I use these all the time and definitely recommend them!

4) Pool or beach? I am definitely more of a pool girl! I can swim in the water, relax, and work on my tan, all without losing my bikini in a giant wave or accidentally choking on salt water!

5) What’s your must-have styling product for summer? I love my CHI Silk Infusion because it makes it my hair silky, shiny, and un-frizzy, plus it protects it from heat when I curl or straighten it. For beach or pool days, I love my new Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray!

6) Sun bathing or fake tan? I love to lay by the pool and get a nice natural tan!

7) Favorite summer nail polish? My favorite is the L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Lacquer in “Tangerine Crush”. It’s the perfect peachy coral shade for hot summer days!

8) Any summer traditions? Yes! My parents and I go to our timeshare in Maui every year! We have so much fun relaxing and spending quality time together while enjoying their beautiful culture and scenery!

9) Favorite summer scent? I just purchased a Pacifica Rollerball Perfume in the scent “Hawaiian Ruby Guava” and it is so beautiful and tropical! I would reccommend it for anyone who likes sweet and fruity smells.

10) Favoite BBQ Food? My Dad  barbeques the yummiest ribs in the world! No one can beat them! I also love S’mores for dessert!

11) What’s your favorite summer-proof product? I cannot survive without my Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray! Without it, my makeup melts off of my face and it’s just  a hot mess!

12) Any summer vacation plans this year? As I mentioned earlier, I go to Hawaii every year, which is where I just was! I made so many memories and can’t wait to go back next year!

I hope you liked this summery tag and I would love to know what your summer favorites are!
