|Yesterday during my lunch hour, I literally ran into an Ocean Spray Blueberry bottle sitting in the middle of the street- 33rd Street and Broadway in NYC, to be exact.|
|Have you seen anything like this?? I took this picture standing 3 feet away from this huge bottle. If only it was full... :) Several feet away from this ginormous inflatable bottle, were JetBlue attendants handing out samples of the drink.|
|The rest of June will be even more fun with a few more coming up this month, including Shecky's Girls Night Out this week. (I'll recap everything I see and love so you won't miss a thing!)|
|Also, this Sunday, June 20th marks two special occasions.|
First, it's Father's Day (need gift ideas for your Dad?) and I found some great gift ideas depending on what kind of Dad yours is. If he's the outdoors kind of guy, Surf-vival has some great SPF natural products. There's also C.O. Bigelow cologne that smells incredible and will make a great gift!
|The Bare Escentuals products|
|A volunteer getting her face made up with Bare Escentuals. I was sitting in the back, so you can see it was a pretty small area. Each table sat about 6-8 ladies, and there were only 2 tables.|
|The Fashion Bash takes place in other cities across the US for the rest of the year, so if you missed this, no worries! They will be at San Diego, LA, and Vegas this Fall!|
|The Josh Flagg Million Dollar Makeup Kit (PROS: new eye shadow colours- all in FULL SIZE CONS: Don't like the All-smiles blush and not sure about all the shadow colors)|
|Utopia Blooms- 25 Eyeshadow Kit (PROS: 25 different samples of eye shadows CONS: I have about half of them already)|
|On The Reef, Coral Collection- (PROS: I don't have any of the colours and they contain great neutral shades CONS: none :) )|
|Naked Natural Collection- (PROS: Contains their new blush/bronze combo CONS: Have some of the colors already)|
|With every beauty routine, you need to start off with a clean slate. Use their Lip Polish ($6 USD), to slough off dead skin cells, made with organic coconut flakes (smells yummy!) and sugar to get your lips super soft. I haven't tried a lip scrub before but I think this is necessary to keep them healthy looking and keeping your lipsticks look smooth without any flakiness.|
Tip: Use once a week for smooth lips!

To get sun protection naturally, you have to try their tinted lip glosses or lip tints balms($4-5 USD). They come in three colours- Coral Charm, Natural Honesty, and Shell Pink. So depending if you like gloss for shine or tints for the balm-effect, they will both give you the sun protection you need from Iron Oxides, great natural colour to show off your sexy, natural pout, and the non-stickiness goo they many other companies' glosses feel.
|The Softlips PURE lip conditioners are probably the most popular since they have great flavors with the new formula of their original lip conditioners. I have fallen in love with these (carry them in all my purses/bags and even keep one by my nightstand!) These lip conditioners contain organic oils, beeswax, shea butter and vitamin E that are USDA-certified organic so I know even if I lick my lips, it's ok!|
|At the Beauty.com Summer Stock-Up event in NYC, I scooped up the Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist.|
Packaged in a crisp white box with its signature floral stem to symbolize simplicity and purity, the Citrus Purifying Mist is a summer must-have!
