Getting ready for a graduation party, I was thinking of all of my favorite products I use to get ready to meet my friends on a lovely summer day (I'm ignoring the stormy weather today). I love the beginning time of summer when its not too hot and not too cold and there's a soft breeze wafting through your hair and your sun-kissed skin is subtly shimmering in the light. So here are some of my favorite Summer Essentials picks to help you prepare for that perfect summer day out with friends and family.
