Summer Night In: Create, Read, Apply, and Wear

Hiya!

I was reading one of my favorite blogs and I saw a post that was really cool and fun to read as a viewer and a blogger.  It seemed like a lot of fun, but finding the time to do it was very hard.  I know it’s summer and I should have all the time in the world, but I just don’t.  Anyway, the post was a “Girls’/Summer Night In,”  which could easily be a tag, as it’s very fun to do and customize.  So I present to you…  My summer night in!

To Wear: PJ Top (Forever 21 Girls)//PJ Bottoms (xhilaration)

While I’m rocking out to some of my favorite songs I like to be nice and comfortable so I put on my loosest attire… Pajamas!  The shirt is not actually from Los Angeles, though I have been there, and I miss the hot weather.  It’s actually a really loose t-shirt. Cute, right?  The pants are absolutely adorable, I mean come on, there’s polka dots.  Plus, they’re cotton, so it’s perfect for cooler summer nights.

To Apply: Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser//3-in-1 Acne Treatment//Acne Defense Face Lotion//Oil-Free Moisture//Power-Cream Wash//Baby Lips Sunscreen//EOS Passion Fruit Lip Balm

I have quite an intense skin care routine.  It involves quite a variety of masks, moisturizers, facial washes, lotions, and lip balms.  Right now I really like the Baby Lips Sunscreen Chap Sticks.  They’re perfect for the pool.  But when I’m not using that I’ve been loving my EOS Passion Fruit Lip Balm.  Trust me, they may be expensive, but they’re worth every penny.  To keep my face soft and acne free I really enjoy the Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Set.  It really does do everything it says.

To Do: Strathmore Sketchbook//Sharpie Fine Point//Bic Mark It Ultra Fine Point

I’ve been seeing these quote/lyric art pictures all over the internet now, and I decided to try some of my own.  I used my fancy smancy sketchbook from Christmas, and used the words from songs I’ve been loving.  And of course, you can’t use just any markers.  I had to use my favorite Bic markers.  They have a super thin point, perfect for drawing and outlining, making them my favorite markers ever.  And when I get tired of that I like to use transparent pictures and banners from Tumblr to make collages.  That’s how I made my header and the picture above.

 To Read: The Fabulous Girls’ Book//Twelve O’ Clocke

I’ve always loved this book, even though I got it for Christmas when I was younger.  Maybe 2 or 3 years ago.  It has a bunch of DIYs, crafts, style tips, and advice.  It’s a fun read if you’re looking for something to do on a lazy Sunday.  It even has projects for a girls’ night in.  But if I’m not in a book reading mood, I like to read blogs.  Particularly Gabrielle Noone’s Twelve O’ Clocke.  It’s what inspired me to start embroidering.  If you’d like to see a post about that, comment below.

See you soon!
