It’s my turn! Hi–it’s Vanessa. This month, I’ve selected products and items to share that have made my life more pleasant when I’m out and on the go. No, I don’t just sit at a computer all day. I love spending time outside, but it’s so important to me that I make myself comfortable. If you’re looking to enjoy the sun these next couple of months, I hope you’ll find this useful!

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40

I went to my first Coachella this year. I bought this product knowing I’d spend a lot of time in the sun. It truly is a unique formula–it’s clear and feels like a makeup primer, even though I’ll wear it without makeup too. Every year I get older, the more I’m careful about protecting my skin, and this sunscreen makes it quite easy.

Ray-Ban Aviator Flash Lenses in Gold Silver Flash

My boyfriend was the one to make me aware of the benefits of polarized lenses. Those include eliminating glare, increasing visual clarity, and reducing eye strain. I get compliments on these all the time! The arms are light without being flimsy. And that I don’t have to overthink about pairing gold or silver jewelry with these is great; I can wear either or both.

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask in Original (Berry)

This past winter was BRUTAL on my lips. The skin on and around my lips were both incredibly dry and flaky. Popping this lip mask on every night before bed is wonderfully soothing and luxurious. The formula instantly melts into the lips and doesn’t feel sticky or thick. Plus, it comes with a silicone applicator, making it super easy and sanitary to use. BUTTONS Bluetooth Earphones in Gold

If you’re looking for bluetooth earphones but AirPods aren’t quite your flavor, try these. To be honest, I got these because I thought they looked pretty; I’m a firm believer in owning things that are both pretty and practical. I was pleasantly surprised to find the sound quality really nice. It also comes with different sized ear pieces so you can create your perfect fit.

Adidas I-5923 Shoes in Red

I’ll admit it–I’d choose sneakers over heels any day. Like I said, comfort is important to me! I get compliments on these all the time, too. They’re available in many different colorways, and are a perfect pop of color in an otherwise simple outfit. These will be in my rotation for a long time.

Thanks for reading! xoxo, Vanessa
