Last Days of Summer (Essentials)


I have a love/hate relationship with summer. I live in New York City and it can be unpleasant to traverse around the city in blazing temperatures. These essentials not only help me survive the summers here they had me looking forward to spending some much needed time in the sun! 

Lo&Sons The Pearl Leather Travel Crossbody & Clutch Bag

This bag is my go-to summer crush. The Pearl is small but versatile - the perfect day to night purse! 

EAU Club Cap Blanket 

Not just a summer essential - this blanket is a must have all year-round. What’s great about this blanket is it's not just a great beach blanket, it's a staple home essential too. I even brought it with me on a recent trip to Italy! 

Lou&Grey Fluid Twill Tie Front Shirt

I like to keep my arms, neck and shoulders covered in the summer for extra sun protection. I love a great white collared shirt and Lou&Grey always has a variety of styles to choose from.

Sakara Energy Bar

I can get sluggish in the summer months and this little bar is packed with plant-based protein and contains stimulating theobromine to give me a boost. 

Standard Dose CBD Tincture

Summer woes are a real thing and this tincture is both an excellent mood enhancer and anxiety curber - plus it’s pink!

pfrank UV Shade

I typically forgo heavy makeup in the summer and will substitute foundation for a tinted moisturizer. Luckily my dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank MD makes this amazing UV shade that absorbs quickly and has a matte finish - it’s heaven. 

Box Naturals Cucumber + Witch Hazel Wipes

When my hands get dirty or my face needs a refresh on the go I reach for these wipes. All their scents are light and fresh.

Lively Bandeau

I love bandeaus and I happen to love this Lively one so much I’ve been wearing it as a bathing suit top all summer!

Infinity Jar Ultraviolet Glass Water Bottle

These bottles are great for preserving freshness while blocking all damaging visible light rays, (yes that's a real thing.)

Carolina Lemke Sunglasses 

Carolina Lemke women’s collection has a selection of unique shapes. Who doesn't want to look futuristic? 

The Xenofeminist Manifesto

Great summer read in preparation for the fall (of the patriarchy that is.) •
