[MUSIC] Even though I'm a New Yorker, you'd never catch me wearing all black. I love color. I love pink, but I'm really loving right now coral pink, so I'm always reaching for that perfect shade of pink lip gloss. Now that summer is coming, it's time to fee your most radiant skin. When it comes to skin care, the most straight forward approach is typically the best for me. Make sure to hydrate. And moisturize your skin. I always use a very healing moisturizer, like Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum. It locks in the moisture, makes me feel so radiant and beautiful. I think gold is the perfect color for summer. I think it looks great with tan skin. It's great for jewelry. I love gold hoop earrings. Also, strappy shoes for summer are the best. Go for the unexpected. And use unexpected patterns in your everyday items, like I've done by bringing my love for Asian influence alive in my dining pieces. Old colors and patterns are what I love to surround myself with. Get textural. My hair is naturally straight, so I love to put texture in it, whether it's curling it or making a cool, beachy-look wave Or maybe even braiding it. I think it looks great for summer to add a little texture into your hair.
