Olivia Burton Watches are delicate, trendy and sophisticated. This beautiful 3D honeybee design in rose gold is stunning and unlike anything else in my collection. The brand even engraved my name on the leather band as a personal gift and the feminine patterns and colors make each piece truly unique. The watch below retails for $319.00 at Hudson's Bay and if you are looking for a thoughtful gift for that special someone, this collection does not disappoint.
On sunny summer days you need an awesome pair of shades. I found these unique sunglasses at a small beach shop in Portugal for just €10. The distinctive navy frame is eye-catching and experimenting with shape can add variety to your look.
Avon has a lot of vibrant summer accessories at affordable prices like this pretty multi-colored Flower Market Necklace and Earrings Set ($11.99 at avon.ca). The matching flower ring ($9.99) completes the look and makes a stylish statement.
Mosquitoes are an unfortunate side-effect of being outdoors in the summer and they carry many diseases you should try to avoid at all costs. To protect myself against these annoying little blood suckers, I always stock-up on Avon’s Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus ($7.99 - $14.99). This is one of the best bug sprays on the market and it works without irritating my skin. Despite the fresh breeze fragrance it does smells like bug spray (no surprise there) but I don’t mind the aroma and who cares about a little repellent scent when you’re protecting your health?! I’ve taken this spray on every vacation and it makes a huge difference! When I forget to wear it, I get bitten and when I remember, I don’t get any bites. I spray it directly on my skin or over clothing and the formula is now available in portable wipes which are perfect for your purse or pocket. For even more protection I also use the OFF Clip-On Fan with refillable pads. Simply attach it to your clothes or purse and the fan emits repellent around your body for 360˚ of protection – those pesky little buggers don’t stand a chance!
Avon’s new Radiant Glow Collection will have you glistening in the sun like a golden Goddess.
Another new product I love is the Anew Gold Peel Off Mask ($39.00) infused with Vitamin B3, real gold, silver extract and botanicals. The formula enhances your glow by evening skin tone, smoothing and reducing the looks of blemishes and age spots. It dries in about 15 minutes and as you peel it off, you can feel the dirt, impurities and sebum lifting out of your pores! (Available at avon.ca).
I've tried many sunscreens that have irritated my skin, caused excessive greasiness and cast a weird blue or white film over my face with stickiness and disgusting scents. Prevention + from Image Skincare ($90.00) is the only sunscreen that works for me and the antioxidant rich formula creates a healthy glow with a lightweight finish and no residue. The tint melts into my complexion evenly and blends seamlessly with outstanding protection. It also works well under makeup without oxidizing.
