It is officially the first week of summer and I’m ecstatic to share with you my 6 Top Obsessions! Every season has it’s swoon worthy pick’s and I can’t let you get started without knowing what’s trending BIG and what's catching my eye. From the coolest dessert…pun definitely intended lol, fashion styles, accessories, and a cocktail that was made for an ocean front view. Your girl has got you covered. Let’s get to it!
#1 Keep Cool
- The Best Summer ICE-CREAM
My absolute favorite summer ice cream is from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Their ice cream literally tastes like a dream come true! It's that good! The first time I was introduced to their ice cream I didn't understand why the line was wrapped around the building. But after my first spoon full coupled with their dynamic service I quickly understood why. They strongly advocate for community and believe that service is an art that should be taken seriously and executed with excellence. I mean a message AND ice-cream…I'm sold! So be sure to stay cool this summer by getting a scoop or two of their amazing multi flavored ice creams and just in case you need a recommendation the "Salty Caramel" is BOMB!
Psss… if there isn't a scoop shop near you…they'll deliver to your door step. GUARANTEED FROZEN…I know INCREDIBLE.
#2 The Bold &The Beautiful
-Daring Statement Earrings
You ever have those days where you don't want to put much effort into your outfit but still want to be cute. You know, a chill day but you also don't want to look like you're chillin too hard lol. Well, if you're in the same boat as me statement earrings are our best friends! They are the perfect outfit picker uppers . Taking you from drab to fab really quick. They're perfect for those jeans and a t-shirt days and if you manage to be fabulous 24-7 they are definitely a fly additive to even the fanciest of fits. So be sure to snag you a bold pair and don't leave the house without them this summer!
#3 A Lil' Shoulder Action
-Trending Off The Shoulder Tops
Skin is in and so are off the shoulder tops! In my book anything that allows you to flaunt your glow is a win! These tops are not only trending but they also make it easy on a girl to be comfortable and sexy. You can go chic with a solid black or white or up the amp with a bold pattern. Either way it goes you'll be stylish and killing the game.
#4 Summer Sippin

I mean it's the prefect entertaining cocktail for when you have all of your friends over for your mid summer soiree. Yep,that just happened.
