Lindsey here, I hope everyone had a great weekend! We are so thrilled that so many of you are enjoying our posts and following our adventures on Instagram! We just got back from California last night so coffee is definitely in order to make it through this work day!
Today, I am going to be sharing with you Six Summer Essentials (well at least I think they are essential!)
My first summer essential is: A Great Magazine!
Whether I am riding in the car on a road trip or relaxing by a pool, I am a huge fan of magazines! Runner’s World is a favorite of mine because I can get immersed in the articles and find inspiration in the stories. Another fun magazine I enjoy reading is Glamour. While I do not love all of the advertisements this magazine contains, I do enjoy the stories.
My second summer essential is: A great hat
Summer = Sunshine! If I forget a hat, especially while on vacation, I usually wind up rocking a really read nose and burnt scalp. Luckily, I have a collection of race hats and this amazing MU hat from Disneyland. P.S.- MU RULES!
My third and fourth summer essential are both really important: Sunblock and Chapstick with SPF!
While I typically hate the heavy feeling of sunblock on my face, especially when heading out for a run, I have had really good luck with the Banana Boat Sport Performance lotion. It is light on my face and keeps me burn free! I typically use a higher SPF on my arms and legs since they get more exposure during my trips out into the sun but SPF 15 works perfect for my face, especially when paired with a cute hat!
My summer essential number five is: Sunglasses
As you’ll notice in a huge majority of my vacation pictures, I almost always have on a pair of sunglasses. This is mostly because I do wear contact lenses and find that my eyes have gotten more sensitive to the sun. This part in-particular was received after the Country Store Fun Run and I always say that because they were free, they will never break of disappear. I have worn them kayaking, zip lining, skiing, in the pool, to the fair and dropped them on the ground countless times. I am under the impression that if I threw them in the ocean, I would still miraculously get them back. However, I will not be testing this theory because these sunglasses are the perfect accessory to every outfit.
My sixth and final summer essential is: Brightly Colored Nail Polish
I don’t know about you but I am very partial to bright nails in the summer-time. This color is perfect for both your fingers and your toes and definitely stands out.
