Designed for outstanding and courageous personalities, the Calaphya Esplandian Collection contains an array of intricate fine art and high fashion pieces. After recently discovering their artistic tops, an instant affair began as the shirts are beautifully designed and made from genuine Supima® cotton which feels like pure luxury. Hence, the inclusion of these beauties in my Summer Essentials post the other day. I'm also giving away one of these gorgeous Calaphya tops, so all of the details will be at the end of this post.
I love that this Young Rose top can be dressed up with a black A-line skirt and heels or kept casual with silk shorts and block heel sandals. Additionally, each motif has been released as part of a limited edition collection so 500 pieces have been exclusively designed and each piece comes with a certificate. It gives that one-of-a-kind look and feel.
Summer is my favorite season for endless reasons - warm weather, beautiful sunsets, beach days with my little man, and cold watermelon on my lips. In celebration, I'm sharing the top Summer essentials on my list and products or brands that this girl is simply loving right now.
1. Calaphya Tops
The combination of high-end fashion and fine art make this line of clothing and accessories so beautiful. Since 2012, Calaphya has built an array of gorgeous tops inspired by creating art and design for everyday life. Whether dressing it up with an A-line skirt and heels or keeping it casual with a pair of black jeans, Calaphya tops have been my go-to on an everyday basis.
Hydration is key during the Summer. After my recent trip to New York City, I was dehydrated and needed a pick-me-up (now enters Flurowater). What makes Flurowater a favorite of mine is that it contains 14 nutrients, contains less than 10 calories, with zero sugar, 6 grams of fiber per bottle, and it makes drinking water a little more exciting. Since I work out often and don't take many vitamins, this is my lifesaver. It also comes in delicious flavors like Watermelon Raspberry, Kiwi Cucumber, Macoun Apple, and Dark Cherry.
Subscription boxes typically offer sample sizes; however, Memebox offers 4-8 FULL-size beauty products to give the best experience. After trying out various subscription beauty boxes Memebox has become my BFF not only for the full-size products, but all of the items are from Korea. If you haven't tried out Korean beauty products, you must try this out. They are unique and amazing!
4. Hollywood Fashion Tape
Fashion tape should be in every girl's purse. Whether sweat is dripping down your body, clothes are slipping or you're wearing a dress that needs a lift, Hollywood Fashion Tape helps keep it all together.
5. It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product
The Holy Grail beauty product for the Summer (or ever). After showering and washing my hair, I apply the It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product for a silky all-day shine.
6. Anatomie Travel Clothing
Made of Italian and French fabrics, Anatomie travel clothes are essential for Summer trips when comfort and style is key. When I was in New York, I wore their Merika Wind Breaker pretty much everywhere. Anatomie also offers a custom "Find Your Pant" service where they take your measurements and information to find the exact pair of pants that fits best. If I'm ever traveling and need pieces that will keep me comfortable on the plane but chic once I touch down, I gravitate to Anatomie.
As part of my everyday skincare routine, I've been incorporating the Doll Face Illuminating Face Polish, Anti-Oxidant Protective Moisturizer and Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask to keep glowing skin that stays fresh throughout the hot Summer days. The Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask really helps clean out any toxins that enter during the days, when my face feels like it's melting off in 90 degree weather.
