So I went into this expecting to come up with my top 10, or rather bottom 10 beauty products of the summer, but rather than fueling the drama and sensationalism of being angry about stuff, I decided to just stick with eight. These are the products that really stood out in my mind as not good or not enjoyable and I didn’t want to start throwing in random products that are “just okay” for the sake of having 10. Sorry to anyone that has a thing for multiples of five like I do, that itch will not be scratched here. Top 15 Summer Hitlist to follow!
Okay okay, I’m not going to lie to you – I’m using the term essential veeery loosely here. Some items are a “must,” but many are just a “want” because I like to be prepared for anything – especially when traveling back to my hometown for special events like weddings and birthdays. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m back in Philly this week for a small stomping grounds reunion and a major wedding in NY, so here’s everything I brought with me for a few nights out with my closest friends, two separate looks for the wedding ceremony (daytime) and reception (evening), plus The Boyfriend’s birthday the very next day. I guess you can call this the “special occasions” version of my travel essentials.
