I spent the summer in Oneonta, NY at an archaeology field school dig, working at my college, and babysitting. These are a few of the things I've been loving.
The Body Shop Tea Tree face wash, toner, and moisturizer have been great for keeping my skin clean and clear even in the summer heat.
ELF corrective concealer
Bobbi Brown oil-free tinted moisturizer I don’t wear much make-up during the summer, just a bit of light foundation.
Hat- H&M This is super fun to wear around when the mood hits, it makes anything feel classy. I really like this hat's vintage feel.
Bigelow I Love Lemon Tea- Delicious hot or iced, plus I feel really healthy drinking it since it has a day’s worth of Vitamin C in it. I’ve gotten into lemons lately... Can you tell?
Lemon shorts are from Forever 21. These fit so well- soft and comfy, but the high waist and tight cut makes them a little fancy, yet still very fun. I get compliments every time I wear them, because how many people have lemon shorts?
Marvelous Oil- Garnier Fructis I’ve been using this stuff for a year now and it is perfect for anything- it keeps my hair soft and just a few drops combed through after a shower/swimming made it air dry quickly and minimizes frizz.
Field School necessities (aside from a trowel and bucket) included these sandals from Teva. I thought these were kind of ugly when I first bought them before my trip to South Africa two years ago, but they've been my favorite things to wear lately and so useful. I hate wearing socks in the summer and these shoes are so sturdy, they’re perfect for hiking or running around. The open toe is also great because water doesn’t get stuck in them and it prevents some awkward tan-lines, plus the design of the shoe keeps my toes out of harm’s way for the most part.
The water bottle is a Brita Sport Bottle. Filtered water bottles are amazing for travel/making chlorine-y water at an environmental campus drinkable. This one is a great size to fit in a bag and doesn’t leak either, no matter how hard I shake it.
Aerie lace bralette- Everyone needs one, they're so much more comfortable and just as cute as a real bra. Susan inspired me to get one because she swears by bralettes.
I found this huge “A” mug at TJ Maxx, because so much tea in one cup!
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin-I finally started reading the series and it’s even better than the show, obviously.
American Eagle Striped “Soft and Sexy” Hoodie- I’m not a big hoodie-wearer, but I love the snuggly-softness of this hoodie and I wore it every rainy day.
Moleskine notebook- I really like stripes, and I’ve been making it a habit to have a little notebook with me everywhere so I can write down ideas I have.
Dell Venue 7 Tablet (case from Amazon)- I never thought I’d have a tablet, but I love the size of this and it’s quite handy to carry around it fits right in my purse instead of a laptop or having to work with my phone, plus it is nice to be able to start reading a book on a tablet as soon as it interests you
I've been eating loads of apples lately, they're a great summer snack.
Coasters- a gift from a friend all the way from Paris tracing the Paris subways. You gotta have something to put your tea on, right?
