Summertime Fine



Hey Glams! It's the last Monday in April which means we are right around the corner from summer!  We all love summer and everyone I know is making preparations for vacations, road trips, and fun.  Beauty is on my mind and before summer gets here I thought this would be the perfect time for us all to get summertime fine (a phrase dubbed by rapper J. Cole).

So today I'm going to share my "Summertime Fine Formula" with you all!  I'm always discussing beauty here on the blog whether that be inner or outer beauty.  Sometimes our beauty shines best when our inner and outer beauty are combined and working together.  That's why I created this formula, because it's what works for me whether I am meeting a new business partner, making a new friend, or catching the eye of a new guy! Want to know more? Check out the formula below!


How To Get "Summertime Fine"

Beauty (Outer)

Let's face it, we all are concerned about our looks.  Unless for a special occasion, I think outer beauty should be kept simple.  The way I keep my outer beauty simple is by simply using my beauty basics.  Every girl should have what I call "beauty basics," and these are the products that you can use to enhance your natural beauty in less than 5 minutes. Mine include mascara, lipgloss, nail polish, and a yummy smelling body spray or perfume.
Summer Beauty Basics





The other part to this is knowing what your style is and embracing it.  For example, I would describe my style as feminine, flirty, and fun!  Pieces you find in my closet will reflect that.  Before summer, go out and get staple pieces that reflect your style. Pieces that you can dress up or down.  It's important to know your style so that if you get a spur of the minute call to go out and have some fun, you'll always be ready!

Brains (Inner Beauty)

An intelligent lady is a beautiful lady. Intelligence is not all about being educated, that's only part of it.  The other half is about being present and living in the moment.  Keep up with current events and decide which ones are important to you.  Read some of the latest books and make time to go see some of the latest movies out.  Know about what's going on currently with your favorite causes.  Don't have any? Find some.  When you're out and about and conversations are going on you don't want to be the odd one out because you have no clue about what's going on around you. To live in the moment means to know what is actually going on around you in the moment.




Confidence (Inner Beauty meets Outer Beauty)


Being confident is probably even more attractive than being well dressed or even well made up!  Confidence happens when interesting meets authenticity, meaning when you are able to truly be you and express what is important to you and how you feel.  How you feel about yourself and what you think about yourself is how others will feel and think about you.  When you go out, make it a point to have fun and learn something new, but remember to be yourself!





Beauty + Brains + Confidence = Summertime Fine








What makes you "Summertime Fine?"  Will you be using this formula this summer?

  6. I just got my first Essie Nail polish. It's called stitches. I think it's the perfect summer pink, not too bright but not too dull. Excited to see what more summer picks you have in store.
