Mystical Reading List

Lately I find that just about anytime I sit down with friends for a leisurely hang out (and a few rounds of summer water) eventually the conversation turns to some sort of witchy mysticism. Okay in all honestly, it usually starts with a conversation about what's happening on instagram, then goes to a convo about what's happening in our current skin care routines and then after the 2nd or 3rd drink it goes to the writers, poets & musicians that are taking our magical thinking a little higher. 

And, since it's summer time and I'm pretty sure half of us have at least one more beach weekend or lake day left in us before fall comes (especially for us girls in the South, we've got months left really) I've put together a quick little reading list to round out your summer.

In truth, every book on this list is on my "must read all the time" list, not just for the summer - these are the tried and true books that keep my head in check when I go a little astray in my thinking and then there's a few new goodies that are quickly make their way into that list.

My sister, btw, after a night of summer drinking with her friends bought like 10 copies (on my Prime account) of #6. She bought them to give to each of her housemates and late night friends and then texted me at 2 a.m. to tell me so (she put her cc # in my Prime account if you're wondering) ... anyways it's kinda the type of book that's so good to read with your besties. The next day she asked what else is on my reading list. It was the second time in a few days I'd given out that list so I figured if she wanted it, you might too - and although you might do your book buying while sober, adding to your mystical reading collection during regular daylight hours or after a boozy night with your best people is kind of never a bad idea. 

Wanderfully yours,

Andi

5 Goodies for a Full Moon Slumber Party

Tomorrow night there's a Full Moon in Capricorn.

You all know I follow the moon cycles closely, and I love creating little rituals and celebrations around each coming full moon. 

If you've been following along on our Astrology updates from Mackenzie you know that this Cancer moon cycle has been about exploring our inner self and diving into our natural instincts. To connect a bit further with our inner child and because, hey, it seems everyone is doing it we're giving you 5 things to make your own full moon slumber party extra festive! 

Plan an impromptu one this weekend or save this cheat sheet for next month's Solar Eclipse or any time you want to have your best girls (& guys) over for the night!

Full Moon Slumber Party

1. Flower Crowns

Stating the obvious on this one however making your own with fresh flowers is a divinely feminine & fun slumber party activity or pick up a few from your favorite boho etsy shop. 

2. Floral Prints

Floral prints are truly blossoming this summer, so have your pick! Brighten up your summer style with a floral patterned shirt, shorts or swimsuit. You can also freshen up your summer party with floral decor - my recommendation: go to Trader Joe's and load up on whatever they've got in the flower aisle, well priced and the prettiest options! 

3. Popsicle Cocktails

Keep the party swingingly cool with frozen booze. The recipes in this book are all  premium alcohol, fresh fruits, and natural ingredients. Healthy drinking, am I right?

4. Bubble Wands

Bubble wands are the best way to add charm and magic to your summer party. They help to enhance the environment and allow for some pretty wondrous Instagram pictures (so make sure to have your phone charged, and film in your Instax).

5. Hair Beads & Face Paint

Hair beading is a perfect slumber party activity (and did you guys ever do hair wraps on beach vacations when you were like 10?). Plus face painting, from color to glitter, will add a little sparkly magic! 

Have fun out there full moon dancing you guys. Here's a few more things I'm loving for any slumber party.

5 Summer Beauty Must Haves

Hi hi,

After spending quite a few of my most recent days beaching or desert dwelling in my favorite swimwear I figured it was high time to share a little cheat sheet round up of the things making my beauty bag cheer YAYYYY as I'm traveling from destination to destination. 

For the record, I was always of the mind set that a bikini, tanning oil (GASP) and the rosiest of lip balms was all a beach bag really needed, but those days have changed a bit. Besides a solid SPF of course, lately I've been kinda swooning over a few other things. I'm loving all the one pieces out there and living for natural self tanners and body scrubs to keep my skin sparkly. 

So here we are, a summer must have cheat sheet to get you beach ready!

Summer Must Haves

1. Bali Body Golden Traveler

Billed as a package featuring "a creamy Luxe Lotion, a Moisturising Sunscreen, the tanning oil you love, and a BB Cream in your favorite shade" and packaged in the cutest travel pouch, I actually can't think of the a better beach kit. Pick from watermelon, cacao or natural tanning & body oil then pick the BB cream shade best suited to your skin.

2. Boys + Arrow One Piece  

A great bathing suit that I feel confident in is major. The retro fitting styles with high waist bottoms and cool one pieces this season are all chic and flattering to any body type. I've been working with a swimwear company in Florida that introduced me to this brand and I'm seriously obsessed.

3. Frank Body Products, in particular the shimmer body scrub!

Frank Body offers a ton of unique exfoliating coffee scrubs that help with acne scars while preventing cellulite and elevate natural glowing skin. The unicorn scrub exfoliates & leaves skin with a shimmering glow. And, honestly, unicorn everything is wayyyyy on trend.

4. Matrix Style Sunnies

A new pair of sunnies always make me feel cool and are necessary for the summer sun! Think early 90s vibes, and smaller lensed shades & cat eyes.

5. Smile Brilliant Whitening Kit

I mentioned this good stuff a few months back and honestly, a bright smile will have you feeling fully your best... add a little bronze glow, with a swipe of a rose tinted balm and you'll need nothing else. 

What's on your summer beauty list lovelies? 

Here's a few other things I'm loving.

 

Wanderfully yours,

Andi
