Can you believe summer is less than a month away? I couldn’t believe it when I realized it this morning. Summer is my absolute favorite time of the year. Endless trips to the beach, breeze nights, cotton dresses, watermelon sangria… I can go on and on. So today we are getting into a sunny and relaxed mood. People StyleWatch recently curated a goody box with this upcoming summer’s must haves. These are four products varying from beauty, jewelry, and clothing that have become favorites of mine and that will definitely come in handy within the next few weeks.
So let’s get to it!
: Caliber :
I love shopping as much as the next person, and possibly slightly even more, but isn’t it great when your purchase also contributes to a much greater cause? The Caliber Collection™ is actually a jewelry line that was initially made up of the serial numbers from 250 guns and metal from bullet casings seized by the Newark PoliceDepartment. The main idea behind this project is to display the transformation a destructive weapon can go through in order to become a powerful symbol of renewal. What’s really great is that a portion of each jewelry purchase is used to fund future gun buyback and amnesty programs in American cities. The t-shirts are new to the mix, these are limited edition and were designed by Tibi to help Raise The Caliber™, a National Advocacy campaign to endillegal gun violence begun by Jewelry for a Cause. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Caliber Foundation.
So not only is this tee really cute and comfy, it also supports a good cause. The oversize fit is ideal since I can wear it over my bikini as I walk to the beach from my house. However, since it is white and really soft I don’t want to ruin it. Instead I’ll wear it out mostly like I did a few days ago. I dressed it up a little by putting on a pair of stylish jeans, a black knit blazer, and a lip color that really popped.

: Armitron :
Rose gold jewelry is this summer’s must have! Summer time is a great time to accessorize to the fullest as you’ll be going from festival to festival, beach party to house party and spending a lot of time underneath the sun. This rose gold beauty has been my go-to jewelry accessory since the day I got it. I love that the round case with Swarovski crystal bezel and accents offer a vintage-inspired look. The mesh bracelet makes it practical for everyday use.
: Skintimate :
Tropical and luscious is the only way to properly describe the fragrance of my favorite Skintimate® shave gel–Island Berry Breeze. The scent is so light and subtle that it makes the mundane shaving experience into a pleasant escape to the tropics. What’s even better is that this gel is full of moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Olive Butter to help replenish skin’s natural moisture for healthy-looking, smooth legs.
I really like how this isn’t just another shaving cream. Instead, it starts off as a bright pink shaving gel that magically transforms into a pastel pink foamy lather right in front of your eyes. This allows the razor to glide over the skin easily and smoothly.
I’m ready for my short shorts and endless beach days!
: DeveloPlus :
You know I would like to say “I’m not my hair” just like the India Arie song goes. But, to be honest my hair plays a very important part of my life. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to break the bond I have with my hair. And if I’m being really honest, I don’t think I want to. It has taken me a number of years to grow my hair to the length it currently is and back to my natural hair color. I try not to damage it too much for this same reason.
Luckily the Summer Goody Box included the ideal product for my hair care needs. DeveloPlus Anti-Aging Hair treatment consists of a breakthrough formula. A combination of Peptide, which helps replace lost collagen in the hair, making it stronger and more youthful. It also contains Alpha-Hydroxy, promotes cell renewal on the scalp, keeping hair follicles clear and open, allowing for thicer roots and healthier growth. It also contains Vitamin B and E. Vitamin B is directly responsible for slowing down the graying process and initiates regrowth of lost hair by stimulating nutrients in the hair follicles. Vitamin E on the hand is is rich in antioxidants that penetrate and help rejuvenate the hair cortex (outer layer). It helps soften and strengthen the hair fiber leaving it in better condition with less tangles. Not only that, but it is also full of Proteins that help regulate and retain moisture, resulting in soft, manageable hair, even in extreme humidity.
The treatment consists of a 3 step process, I have included the details below:
Step 1: Revive
Revive is a detoxing clarifier, formulated to help remove dull residue that hides your hair’s natural shine. Revive helps nourish your hair without weighing it down, revealing more luminous tones. Revive replaces your shampoo.
Step 2: Restore
Restore is a 5-minute reconstructing masque formulated with our Peptide Amino-Vitamin Complex to help minimize the graying process, initiate regrowth of lost hair and strengthen your hair’s natural fiber. Restore penetrates your hair to help repair micro-fractures, eliminate dryness and control frizz. Restore replaces your conditioner.
Step 3: Re-Activate
Re-Activate is a rejuvenating elixir, enriched with our Peptide Amino-Vitamin Complex. Formulated to help reinforce your hair shaft, soften, eliminate tangles and regulate moisture.
The benefits are numerous, not only does it remove dulling residue to reveal your hair’s natural shine, but it also helps protect it from the sun’s UV rays. I think this is really important as we protect our skin everyday, so why not our hair? My hair truly feels really good after using this treatment. I find it looking extra plush and more manageable lately.
