July Favorites & August Preparations!

Hello ladies! It’s been a while since I’ve seen you all! I am back with a July Favorites & August Preparations!

Recently, I have conducted a survey for the “most wanted” items in July.  While many women gave me a variety of clothing, accessories and beauty products, I managed to narrow it down to 10 items. Here are the top 10 popular items that many women have purchased and placed in their shopping carts last month.

Let’s start off counting down from number 10!

10. Starbucks Refresher Beverages

During this hot weather, there’s nothing like a cold drink to keep you COOL!  Throughout this long Summer,  lines at Starbucks build up with the hopes to purchase a cold beverage. Believe it or not, a lot of customers are purchasing cold beverages over hot coffee. The top requested cold drink at Starbucks is their Refresher Beverages. With flavors like Very Berry hibiscus and Cool Lime, you can’t go wrong. Refreshers don’t only come in a cup, but are also offered in cans and as instant beverage mixer.s On those hot days of bike riding and walks in the park, this is the perfect drink to cool you off! If you haven’t yet tried this drink, I suggest you get your hands on it!

9.  Organic Hair Products

A lot of women are now turning to the environment for healthier hair. You can’t go wrong with organic hair products that consist of less chemicals and more natural minerals. By using organic hair products, you are giving your hair the healthy treatment it needs. Most women are using these products because they want to be more cautious of their hair’s chemical intake. Many products such as Olive Oil and Organix contain butters and oils that are healthy for you hair. If you are interested in treating damaged hair or are in need of a healthier hair regime, check out organic hair products that can be found in stores near you.

8. A Bold Lip

A bold lip makes a high statement in fashion this season! From dark purples to deep reds and bright pinks, innovative fashionistas are wearing the trend. Though this is not a specific product, it is a trend that persuades many woman to purchase bold color lipstick. Sephora is the go-to retailer when it comes to make-up of all sorts. You can catch many woman walking out with Sephora’s Crush and Rouge Creme Lipstick in their bag. If you’re thinking about trying this trend, go for it!  With the perfect color to match your skin tone, you can’t go wrong!

When asking women their favorite shoe brand, many of them mentioned Steve Madden. From sandals to boots to heels, Steve Madden has it all! This season open toe shoes are a must have! In this warm weather, women are wearing wedges, sandals, and ankle strap heels. If you’re looking for a style that fits your personality, Steve Madden has it!

6.  Lace & Crochet Tops


Light weight tops are the perfect thing to wear when dealing with this season’s back-and-forth weather. When choosing a fabric, most women gravitate towards lace and crochet. Both fabrics are weightless and comfortable, allowing you to stay sexy and trendy at the same tie. Lace and crotchet  come in different patterns, colors, and designs, which makes more fun to wear them! Every girl needs at least one lace or crotchet top in their closet. If you don’t have one, that girl is YOU! 😉

When meeting someone, the first thing people usually sense is their smell. Every women has her signature fragrance(s) that puts on everyday, whether it be the scent of her body wash, perfume or lotion. I guarantee you will remember that person by their sense of smell. Bath & Body Works has always been my favorite spot to go to when looking for a new scented lotion or body wash. Besides their great deals, they are always coming out with a new signature fragrance. With over 50 fragrances, no smell is the same!

4.  Vibrant Color Nail Polish

The Spring trend of vibrant colors has rolled over into the new season. There’s something about bright weather and  vibrant nail polish that goes hand-in-hand. Your nail polish color is usually based off your style and personality. When wearing a bright color, it’s your choice and  doesn’t have to match what you’re wearing. All you neutral nail polish fans, it’s time to step outside of the box and try a bright yellow!

3.  Maxi Skirts

When I think of fun fashion, I think of the maxi skirt! Maxi skirts can be worn with any attire. Whether it be a crop top or a button up, your outfit always seems to fall together. When going to the beach, mall, or office, you can still dress the part with a simple maxi. With a variety of color and style choices, you can’t go wrong. The maxi skirt is comfortable, stylish, and weather appropriate!
