Summer Essentials!

My latest YouTube video is all about the products that have become my must-haves this summer. Sunscreen, skincare, hair, makeup... in the summer I really opt for ease in all of these areas (except sunscreen - hello, gotta be SUPER diligent about that!) and so far this year I've found some new favorites that I wanted to share! 

I am pretty picky about my summer skincare, hair, and beauty routines - I want easy, glowy, pretty, and long-lasting even on the hot, hot days we get here in New Mexico. You can watch the video for details about the products, but the names and links for everything I mention can be found below!

A quick note - in the video, I also mention that my YouTube channel just hit a big milestone: 1,000 subscribers! This is so exciting to me - I have really been enjoying learning about making and editing videos and connecting with the great community on YouTube, and it's been a happy surprise that people have been commenting on and liking my videos and especially subscribing to see more. Thank you so much - I'm having a blast. I have a lot to learn when it comes to my channel and I am so motivated to keep at it! 

Ok - products below! (These are affiliate links - if you choose to use them, thanks!)

What am I missing? Do you have a new summer fave that you're loving right now? Let me know in the comments here or on YouTube! 

How I Plan: My Monthly Layout Process

In this video, I'm sharing my basic process for doing my monthly spreads in my planner! I keep my monthly layouts simple and focused on my time-sensitive appointments for both work and home. I like it to be functional and of course, a bit pretty too. If you're a "planner person" like me, I hope this is a useful video!
