What I love about this company is their creativity, quality and their goal to grasp the sense of a place and to bring to life in their products. By utilizing a lens of local identity, they aim to offer their customers so much more than just amazing makeup.

I was able to test out two of the companies individual Intense Eyeshadows that are made with four times finer pigments and PureSource™ ingredients. All of the companies shadows are PETA certified and cruelty-free and vegan. I loved the pigments and how vibrant they were. The yellow eyeshadow was something I had never tried before (Yellow isn’t my favorite color) but I was pleasantly surprised on how it was able to compliment my skin tone and acted as a great base tone to the accented purple shade.
Nomad Cosmetics are affordable, selling a $12 each and 100% worth it! This make up is truly longlasting and will give your daily routine an upgrade. So, point blank, if you want to spice up your makeup routine you need to give Nomad Cosmetics a try.

White Girl Sunscreen

Fun Fact: Skin is the human body’s largest organ. white girl sunscreen
It’s no secret that wearing sunscreen in the summer is important. However, wearing sunscreen during the year is extremely important too. As your skin is your body’s largest and most exposed organ, wearing sunscreen throughout the year helps to promote healthier and radiant looking skin your body will thank you for. So what’s the issue? Why don’t we all apply sunscreen year round? white girl sunscreen

We can blame it on the lack of being educated on the issue, but frankly, we all learn at a young age how important it is to protect our skin from UV rays so my theory to this dilemma is simple: laziness. That’s right, we are all too lazy to save our skin. And though that might seem crazy because of all the potential health issues we know can come from not wearing sunscreen, it’s still true. I myself am a culprit of choosing the lazy path, which is why I decided to venture on another one and thanks to White Girl Sunscreen I was able to. white girl sunscreen white girl sunscreen white girl sunscreen

The White Girl Sunscreen Pouch
I received the White Girl Sunscreen Pouch try which sells for $14.99 online for a 100 (SPF30+) travel size pouch. It provides protection against UVA/UVB radiation and other environmental aggressors while restoring radiance for a beautiful, healthy, youthful glow. As it is formulated to defend, soothe, and repair all skin types- this sunscreen is even great for the most sensitive skin. In addition, this sunscreen is also alcohol-free (doesn’t extract from your spray tan), Gluten free and Paraben free.

From my experience from using the White Girl Sunscreen Pouch, I did not have any breakouts or smudging like I have had using previous sunscreen brands so that was an immediate win for me. I enjoyed how this sunscreen had a fresh cucumber scent with its own unique formula, which was perfect because I used it on my face as a moisturizer before putting on my make up as well. Choosing to use this product during my morning makeup routine resulted in a refreshed and youthful feel and look before applying my “face” and honestly, made my makeup last longer. If you’re worried about white residue or greasiness, I found this product absorbs evenly into the skin, so you don’t have to worry!

Not sold yet? Another little-added bonus about the brand is that for every pouch purchased, a portion of the proceeds White Girl Sunscreen generates are directly donated to the Melanoma Research Foundation and the Save the Manatee Foundation! So not only can you save your skin, but you can help save other and wildlife.

 

White Girl Sunscreen is a best-kept beauty secret that everyone needs to know and is going to be your skins new best friend. Remember, preventing sun damage is much easier than repairing it; so give this sunscreen a try and start loving your healthy skin again.

Since a child, I have always wanted to be a fashion designer. I went to school for fashion, have worked in the fashion industry my entire adult career, but my soul and artistic juices were screaming to do something else. This is where Koko D Swimwear was born; it came from my love of warm weather, beaches and travel.

3. What’s your spirit animal 
My spirit animal is an elephant, as weird as that may sound…but [it’s] their calm demeanor, big presence, loyalty, love, and compassion is a lot of my characteristics.

Blue Coral

We sat down with designer, Callista Gifford-DeHart aka Callie of Blue Coral Swimwear to get an inside look at the brand and what to expect at Swim Week.
DS: What inspired you to start Blue Coral and why swimwear?
CGD: It is was always a big dream of mine to own my own business, as well as creating things. As a child when my family and I went on vacation I was always so excited to wear a new swimsuit and cover up. When I moved to Delray Beach, FL. in 2012 it only increased my desire to design swimwear that was different then what was in stores. In 2014 I finally started planning my reality. I can honestly say that I am so passionate about my company, and providing swimwear women can feel and look great in.

DS: What’s one thing that you wish more people knew about swimwear?
CGD: Swimwear can be a sensitive topic for many individuals because you show a lot more skin than other types of clothing. However, swimwear gives women the opportunity to go to the beach, pool, etc. to show off their unique style, and confidence in their bodies. Swimwear is truly an art.
DS: Besides being handmade, what makes Blue Coral unique?
CGD: Blue Coral Swimwear focuses on providing unique designs, as well as using high quality fabrics that you will feel extremely comfortable in. In the end Blue Coral believes that you make the swimsuit, not the other way around. Our great customer service will help you find what you are looking for, as well as answer any questions you may have about styles and sizing. We want to make sure you are 100% happy with your purchase and experience.

The collection will feature a variety of colors, as well as classic silhouettes with a modern twist that is sophisticated, but sexy.
DS: Name one celebrity that you wish to wear Blue Coral?
