Summer is for road trips, drop tops and listening to music…

like Justin Beiber’s new one with David Guetta, “2U.”  Love it!  And the remix of “Despacito” is totally growing on me.  Justin’s having a good summer.  Also “Slow Hands” by Niall Horan.

I will continue to buy giant tubs of coconut oil to use in the kitchen and rub all over my body.

is not worth losing any sleep over, that’s for sure.

In case you missed it, USA Today recently published an article titled “Coconut oil isn’t healthy.  It’s never been healthy.”

According to the article, coconut oil is bad because it contains saturated fat, which the American Heart Associate claims will give you heart disease.  This is the same association that pushes margarine over butter and says that sugary cereals are “heart healthy.”  Seriously, AHA, wtf?

Personally, I think this whole thing is a load of crap.  And I will continue to buy coconut oil in giant containers on a regular basis.  Because not only do I use it in the kitchen, it is an awesome moisturizer…love slathering it all over myself when I get out of the shower. Continue reading

My pick for song of the summer…

is “I’m the One,” by DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne.  I might have left a rapper out.  Love blasting this with the top down driving to the pool!

A few other faves:  “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers.  That one gives me the chills…love it!  Also into “Attention” by Charlie Puth and “Strip That Down” by Liam Payne and Quavo.  Which I mentioned in my last post, but it bears repeating if you haven’t listened yet!

And here are some of my picks for protecting your skin (and giving it a shimmery glow!) while you’re hanging poolside or at the beach:
