5 Trends I’ve Been Loving This Summer

Hey, it’s me Glory, and I’m back from vacation. Our son and daughter had an incredible time visiting Disney for the first time. I’ll try to share some pictures with you later on this week.

Now, let me share with you the five trends I’ve been loving about summer:


Yes, all white, from head to toe; nails, toes, and outfit.

  • Myth: White will make you look fat. It’s true that dark colors, like black, absorb light and make you look thinner. But don’t assume that means that wearing all white will make you look like a giant white whale.

There are so many great summer trends, but to me, nothing screams summer like white. White is so versatile, you could wear it anywhere in the summer months. You could dress it up or down and look stunning. From strapless tops and dresses, lace, and linen shorts, dresses, pants… anything goes! Let me show you:

This dress, Dee wore to an all white birthday party. Since it was a backyard party, she dressed it down by not wearing a necklace, and wearing nice flip flops. She’s not short, nor petite, but she looked gorgeous! (Thanks Glory! I felt great wearing it.) The dress only cost her $16.99 USD at Rainbows.

Here are a few other white outfit ideas for less than $30 USD. The one one the left is a one piece skirt that I found for $20 USD at Mandee. The one on the right is two pieces: an A-line skirt at Windsor for $12 USD, and the top is a cross halter that I also found at Mandee for only $8 USD. Both outfits can be dressed up or down. And could be worn for any occasion. Another plus, is that you could accessorize with any color.


White mani-pedi. It’s simple, yet delicate. Plus, it helps highlight your tan!

2. UP-DO’S

Normally, I am the kind that let’s my hair loose. But this summer I am loving my hair up in a messy bun and/or braid.
These are my favorite very easy styles, I’ve been rocking this hot summer.


“Capture that sexy glow with our lightweight multi-functional illuminator. Use as a foundation base or over cheekbones décolletage or cupids bow for that refreshing luminosity that’ll have everyone talking.”

I use NYX Born to Glow Liquid illuminator in Gleam. I only paid $7.50 USD for this product. Use it to highlight, or as it’s been renamed, strobing.



“With our unique Climate Control Complex, gently cleanses and moisturizes hair while controlling frizz. This advanced hair care system leaves hair shiny, soft and manageable. This hair protection system helps you face weather head on.”

Say no more! I am very happy with this shampoo and conditioner. It helps with the frizz and humidity and for only $3.88 USD each at Walmart.



Individual lashes from i.ENVY by KISS in Ultra Black Medium:

“Darkly beautiful, these individual lashes have more lashes per cluster! They apply quickly and easily and let you create an eyelash look that’s exclusively yours. All of our lashes are contact-lens friendly.”

I am in love with these. These are the ones that I used in my Individual Lashes Tutorial. They are easy to apply, and they give you a natural look. There is nothing worse than it being obvious that you are wearing falsies.

That is all for today. Want more beauty tips or tutorials? Check out my past blogs.
