    It's been a busy summer for me thus far, without much opportunity to hit the pause button.

    I'm cranking out my Social Media Marketing classes, toward a certification (will start the fourth of seven classes tomorrow). And I'm about to finish up another core class toward my Journalism degree. Summer school is flying by, learning everything from audio editing with Audacity, to videography with Adobe Premiere, to analytics analysis (aka graphs on graphs on graphs), all in a matter of weeks.

    If you've been keeping up with my outfit archives, you've seen a lot of lace and crochet recently. This festival-ready last-season top is still a favorite, and it's all about the scalloped lace trim and keyhole back. Paired it with a super flowy asymmetrical-hem skirt by Lush, in camel.

    How to Fake a Salty, Sun-Kissed Beach Glow

    Beach vibes beauty guide: For a day at the beach, or for when you want to look like you've spent a day at the beach. [Reviewing: Sea Plasma spray moisturizer, L'Oréal Sublime Bronze self-tanner, Bumble & Bumble Surf salt spray]

    Summer's in full swing, and that natural, fresh-off-the-beach look is trending hard. Not all of us will get the chance to escape for a little coastal getaway, but these beauty products will help you fake it 'til you can.



    Focus 21 Sea Plasma Hydrant
    One of my favorite drug store finds — a big bottle for under $10. This all-in-one hair and skin moisturizing spray with aloe is light and fresh, and it smells like a spa day. They advertise that a little spritz pre-hair coloring will help prevent color fading, too.

    L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Mist
    Sublime Bronze is an easy to use and natural-looking self-tanning spray — another drug store product you can find under $10. Shake well to ensure a light, fine mist, and build up the color gradually to avoid over-saturating.

    Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, 4oz
    Bumble & Bumble's sea salt hair spray has been around for awhile, but I tried it for the first time earlier this year. The bottle pictured is 1.7oz, but you can get 20% off the 4oz size from 11 Main with the code MAINEXTRA20 (normally $35). Code expires Sunday, but if you're a first time buyer the expiration date is extended through the end of the month, and ends 7/31! I definitely see what all the hype is about — it really works well to create messy, natural waves (you can see the texture it gives my hair here).
