I have just discovered a new summer indulgence: basil lemonade.
Hello! I’ve had mint lemonade (also amazing), strawberry lemonade, raspberry lemonade, and of course — straight up lemony lemonade. But basil? Never would have come up with that! I’m currently letting the basil/lemon syrup steep, and the house smells amazing. Really, someone needs to turn this scent into a plugin. It is to die for! And what says summer like a tall, icy glass of lemonade?
No, wait. Tall, icy glass of lemonade + sassy swimwear + good book + poolside lounging. Now that is summer.
Oh, I forgot the pool boy!
Okay, now I can’t stop adding to the list. But I am finding a common theme, so let’s talk summer pampering.
Body: My dentist just sent two 1-hour massage gift cards for Hubby and me to thank us for referring so many friends. What the what? Definitely not going to question that one! Too bad it’s a one-time deal, sigh. Unless you are lucky enough to get regular massages, try pampering your body with lotions — we She She Girls are loving JASON Natural Apricot these days. Brighten and smooth with detoxifying masks, exfoliating scrubs, and polishes.
Lashes: Eyelashes are getting hoards of attention right now. For a pretty penny, you can get gorgeous extensions that last months. My baby sister got some and is in love! To quote her, “I feel beautiful right out of bed — with no mascara!” While extensions are awesome, why not start by enhancing your natural lashes with a lash conditioner? RapidLash and bioLASHX3 are two we’ve tried here at She She Me headquarters, and they are A-mazing. An everyday application will make lashes thicker and longer, and will also help to fill in sparse areas. They work on brows, too!
Face: Faces love pampering! If your goal is to brighten, SKINSYNC has a whole line of amazing skin brightening products. For sun protection, Tarte has some incredible +SPF products right now, and you know I’m both an SPF and Tarte addict. Their LipSurgence lip tint is my new favorite lip product and has earned a special spot in my purse. Needing some sunkissed color without the sun damage? I do, and I know the public would thank me for using self tanning lotion or bronzing powder. Shopgirl got a spray tan earlier this year and thought it was thebomb.com (yeah, I said it), but I just haven’t worked up the nerve to try it out! Would I look like an oompa loompa, or would I get a J-Lo glow? Makes me nervous. Feel free to share your experience!
Feet: A great pair of wedges and a pedicure. Perfect. For those days/weeks/months between pedi sessions, work wonders on your feet at home by investing in a fabulous heel softener, a pumice stone or PedEgg, and some exfoliating foot scrub. So relaxing after a long day.
A Good Book: If you like chick lit that isn’t too chick lit, Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos is an excellent read. How about intrigue/thrillers? Next on my list is the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, and I hear The Hypnotist is a killer (pun!) murder mystery. Are you a fan of YA fiction? Because I am. And Hubby is obsessed with Harry Potter, so you know where I’ll be at 12am on July 15th! Anyway, I’m told The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a major page turner. I guess the trend is moving from vampires to zombies? Oh, boy. My Goodreads.com to-read queue is getting out of control!
Wow. After all this web surfing, I am seriously looking forward to some relaxing summer pampering! Starting now.

Star Studded Skin
(with some stripes thrown in)
Introducing LIBERTY, a new STEAMCREAM tin design making its debut in time for the Fourth of July. Featuring stars and stripes and resembling the American flag, show off your red, white and blue, and a silky, smooth you.
Harnessing the power of a revolutionary steam-infusion manufacturing process, STEAMCREAM provides a long-lasting, intensive and effective form of skincare, first and foremost for the face. However, because the steam technique produces a gentle, loosely-bound emulsion that allows each ingredient to breakdown, it can penetrate the skin where needed and where other creams find hard to reach. It noticeably nourishes and softens the skin, and with regular use, improves its overall appearance.
Star (and stripe) studded skin is within reach with STEAMCREAM.
Red, White and Beautiful 4th of July Looks
Patriotic summer holidays call for festive looks, but no one wants to look like a walking flag. Red, white and blue beauty looks offer an attractive and chic alternative to donning stars and stripes. Sporting a flash of red, white or blue is patriotic and on-trend, and fashionable doesn’t have to mean expensive – each of these instant updates is available for under $20 at stores across the U.S.A.
Pair a bold red lip or nails with a summer white ensemble for a look that’s daring but elegant. L’Oréal Paris Infallible™ Le Rouge Lipstick in Target Red ($8.99 at Target) conditions lips for long wearing color that lasts from daybreak through 4th of July fireworks and beyond. ORLY Lacquer in Star Spangled ($7.50 at Ulta) delivers megawatt shine and classic color in a formula that’s free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin.
Any summer look requires a bright, white smile. The new REMBRANDT®Deeply White™toothpastes and mouthwash ($6.99-$7.99 at drugstores) work together to provide superior whitening by using Active Dental Peroxide, the ingredient dentists use to whiten below the enamel surface.
For an edgier approach, use NP Set Eye Palette in Seattle ($20 at Target) to create an alluring metallic smoky eye accented with shimmering navy. Apply ORLY Royal Navy Lacquer ($7.50 at Ulta) to toes for a hint of azure blue color that’s the perfect complement to metallic sandals.
Protect Your Skin with Vichy
It's time to shake up your sunscreen routine with Vichy Capital Soleil Soft Sheer Sunscreen Lotions. This new full range of sun care products features an advanced UV filtering system to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and employs a potent antioxidant combination of White Grape Polyphenols and Vitamin E that helps provide cellular protection and neutralizes almost all types of skin-aging free radicals.
tested on sensitive skin and family-friendly, Capital Soleil melds beauty and science for sunscreens
that are as pleasurable and flattering to use as they are clinically effective.
The line is highlighted by a daily face protection fluid utilizing “shaka shaka” technology to deliver an
ultra-sheer, matte application. A partial emulsion, the fluid is packaged with two separate components – oil and water – that are combined by an enclosed ball bearing when shaken before application,
making the “shaka shaka” sound. This dispensing innovation in the Capital Soleil SPF 50 Ultra Light
Sunscreen Fluid provides the perfect sheer consistency, unlike many sun care products offering a
similar SPF protection. With a virtually transparent and smooth finish, the Capital Soleil SPF 50 is ideal
for everyday use and under makeup.
