If there’s one item that gets the most use throughout the summer months, it’s unquestionably a pair of denim shorts! I’m always keeping my eye open for new pairs I love, because it’s one wardrobe staple you’ll always need. So, I thought I’d share the 12 best denim shorts for summer that suit every body shape.

We all have our favorite pair that are worn on repeat, but you won’t regret having an alternative on hand to mix things up and keep your wardrobe interesting. I personally have multiple pairs including a few classic blue denim (both distressed and a clean finish), black denim and a fresh white denim, which I absolutely adore.

Like a good breezy dress or comfortable sandals, a great pair of denim jean shorts are essential for summer. It’s important to know, not all denim shorts are created equal – some come in itty-bitty lengths, others hit mid-thigh, some are a looser cut and some fitted through the thigh. You have your low rise shorts and high-waisted short styles too. It can all be very confusing! But I carefully look at them constantly and I’m going to share some tips and tricks that you need to know about jean shorts – plus, my top picks for the best denim shorts.
 
 
Three factors to keep in mind are style, fit and color. We’ll explore these…
 

DENIM SHORTS – STYLE:

It seems there are endless options of denim shorts these days, from distressed denim shorts, to frayed hem shorts, to rolled denim cuff shorts​. Each style is unique and versatile, easily dressed up or down with the right top and accessories.
 
 

DENIM SHORTS – FIT:

The hottest new trend right now is longer denim shorts that hit just above the knee, like these distressed blue denim knee length shorts (LOVE them!) and these white denim knee length shorts. Depending on how you like your jean shorts to fit, there’s high-rise, mid-rise, low-rise, loose boyfriend-fit shorts and tighter pairs. There are so many different fits out there, so order a few different styles to try and you’re sure to find a pair that is flattering, comfortable and suits the occasion.
 
 

DENIM SHORTS – COLOR:

​Denim shorts are available in many colors, but most people stick to basic and neutral colors. The most popular denim short colors include classic blue denim shorts, black denim shorts and white denim shorts. I’ve also seen pastel colored shorts, such as these cute light pink denim shorts, or even bold prints like these leopard print denim shorts.

Easy and effortless outfits are essential for any summer wardrobe and I have to say, a classic combo of denim shorts and a stripe tee is the best summer outfit. It’s also perfect to pack on vacation!  I always find myself wearing a combo of maxi dresses and then denim shorts and stripe shirts when we’re away.  You can pack a million things, but I often laugh as I reach for the same few pieces each day… do you ever do the same? You can’t go past classic navy and white stripes with denim can you!

What is one of your summer go-to looks? I’d love some extra inspiration!

My savvy shopping friends, you won’t want to miss this! I’m sharing EVERYTHING you need to know about shopping the Amazon Prime Day Sale and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Between Black Friday deals and Christmas sales, we’re successful at saving money at the end of the calendar year – but what about the savvy shoppers looking to purchase big-ticket items in the summer? Right now, two of the biggest sales of the year are happening – Amazon Prime Day and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Mid-July is essentially it’s very own “holiday” for shoppers like me (and you, if you’re anything like me!). So, I’m going to walk you through both sales and share tips on how to get the very best sale deals.

 
 

Amazon Prime Sale 2019

I may or may not single-handedly keep Amazon in business – they have everything I want and need, and then some! To break it down for you, Prime Day is a 2-day parade of epic deals that are exclusively for Prime members. First things first, to take advantage of the sale you need to sign up for a free Amazon Prime trial here. If you aren’t already a Prime member, they have a 30 day free trial and you cancel anytime without being charged. Then, mark your calendars for the big Amazon Prime Day Sale 2019 dates July 15 and 16.

While the first-ever Prime Day back in 2015 only featured Amazon-centric products, like Kindle and Echo products, the biggest online e-Commerce company has since added a range of products to its sale inventory that can even be found by category themes. For 48 hours straight, you will find major discounts on thousands of items – with new products being rolled out throughout the day.

One thing that many people don’t know is not every deal will last the entire two days. Some are only offered for a limited time (eg.”for the next 60 minutes”), so if you see something you like, act fast and snap it up! Another tip; just because one product isn’t on sale when you check in the morning doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get it for a cheaper price later in the day. One way to ensure you don’t miss out on a deal is by tracking them throughout the day and setting an alert using the Amazon App.

Nordstrom Sale

With major deals on designer name brands, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the kind of massive sale that you set alarms for ahead of time. Things sell out fast, so you don’t miss anything! But it can be incredibly overwhelming if you’re not prepared. It’s no secret that the hottest items sell out fast, so here is everything you need to know about the sale before it’s go-time.

Early Access for Nordstrom card members runs from Friday, July 12 at 12:30 pm EST through July 18. Apply to become a Nordy member here and be the first to shop! You can also see the full catalogue and the sale homepage to view your favorites ahead of time. Public access will begin on July 19 at 12:30 pm EST and runs through August 4. Prices go up August 5th, so grab what you need – and the best part is, Nordstrom always have free shipping and returns!

A denim shorts and linen shirt outfit is a summer fashion staple. This effortless style is perfect for everyday and definitely what you need to pack for vacation.

I wanted to share some real life photos of an outfit I wear all the time. I hope you don’t mind the mirror selfies, but I really believe it’s important to keep things real in this online world. As much as I love doing photoshoots, I want to balance that with real day-to-day life – and that means a few quick photos in the hallway mirror on my way out of the house.
 

Wearing Linen and Denim

Linen is my favorite fabric, it’s beautiful to wear. As a natural fabric, linen helps regulate your body temperature, so it’s very comfortable to wear and keeps you cool in summer or warmer when you need it. I love these linen shirts, they come in a range of colors.

Because this outfit is based on clean, classic style pieces that every girl needs, I need to do a special shout-out to denim shorts! I wear them almost every day in summer and love that they’re so easy and virtually indestructible (it’s nice having clothing pieces you don’t have to be precious with).

As I’m sure you know, I’m very into leather jackets too. I live in this cropped leather moto jacket and find it’s great to throw on with shorts, skirts and dresses when the nights still feel cool.

Do you love wearing denim shorts and linen in summer? I’m on the hunt for an extra pair of denim shorts, so if you have any recommendations please leave a comment below and let me know the brand and style – I definitely want to check them out!

Multiple ear piercings are major right now! Leading the way, LA’s coolest ear piercing trends are undoubtedly the ‘constellation piercing’ and ‘the vertical lobe’. I currently have one piercing in each ear, but will be getting an extra three piercings done with top LA piercer Brian Keith Thompson over the summer. Brian is famed for being the go-to celebrity piercing artist, with everyone from Beyoncé to Jenna Dewan having their ears pierced at his LA based institution, Body Electric Tattoo.

I have been doing tons of research about piercings and looking for inspiration for what style of ear piercing I want to do. So today, I wanted to take you through the top LA ear piercing trends and also share my top picks for beautiful diamond and gold earrings.

Tell me, do you have multiple ear piercings? What do you think of them – love or hate? Do you have a story about your own experience? I’d LOVE to hear about it before I get mine done.
 

Earring Inspo from Zoe Chicco
 
 

LA’s Coolest Ear Piercing Trends


 
 

Vertical Lobe Piercing

A vertical lobe piercing is simply two or more piercings stacked closely together. It started trending last year when people realized it was a great solution to balance out an existing piercing that wasn’t placed properly (perhaps leftover from a 5th grade mall trip or just poor placement to begin with).

Brian Keith Thompson, the owner and piercer of the wildly popular Body Electric who has pierced stars including Beyoncé and Scarlett Johansson, told Refinery 29 that he “started adding to them instead of ignoring or replacing them, thus ushering in a new trend.”
 


 
 
 

Constellation Piercing

Then there’s the infamous constellation piercing. This is an artful group of piercings, usually three or more, that are as unique as the star clusters they’re named after. Thompson said this about constellation piercings, “Right now, I am really into doing something big paired with something dainty—like a planet and a couple of moons.”

What I personally find intriguing about the constellation trend is no two constellation piercings are exactly the same, so the possibilities are endless! I also love how personalized it makes this ear piercing option, so although it’s a major trend, it’s still totally individual.

Celebrity Ear Piercing Style



For some great inspo, look to celebs for ear piercing trends and style ideas. I loved Jenna Dewan’s curated ear piercings, below are her exact earrings for you to shop.

  Ear Piercing Tips

There is an obvious art to piercing, so here are three tips from the master piercer himself, Brian Keith Thompson, to doing it right the first time:

 
1. PLACEMENT IS EVERYTHING
“Where you get pierced should be based on your personal style, but not all jewelry should go in certain areas. Do your research and ask for piercer’s opinion.”
 
 
2. CARE FOR YOUR PIERCINGS​​
“Don’t forget to take the time to clean your jewelry. Soap and water is all you need, not rubbing alcohol. A lot of people come in and their ears are extremely dirty. And that’s from body oils, hair products and lotions. All this stuff starts building up, and it just looks like gunk on the jewelry itself.”
 
 
3. GET A FEEL FOR TRENDS
“I’m seeing a lot of clients around my age, 40-something, and they’re still wearing a lot of these old captive bead rings from the ’90s. That ship has sailed. Your jewelry needs to change. Out with the old, in with the new.”
 
 
I’d love to hear your thoughts on these trends in the comments below!Do you have multiple ear piercings? What style of earrings do you like to wear – delicate studs? Huggies or hoops? Statement earrings? As always, thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend!

I’m obsessed with reading beauty and skincare reviews online. I never buy a product without researching it – after all, who has time to waste money or time on a product that doesn’t do amazing things? Not me… and I’m sure, not you. So to help us all, I’m sharing the best-selling beauty products at Sephora and Nordstrom.

These are 10 cult beauty products you need to know about. Have you tried any of these beauty and skincare products? Leave a comment and please let us all know – it helps everyone to hear what you thoughts of them!

I hope you enjoy a fabulous weekend. My husband Chris and I are heading off on a weekend away for a friends’ beach wedding, which will be beautiful.

10 Cult Beauty Products You Need to Know About


 
 

 
Best Selling Beauty Products: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten
 
 
 
1. HERBIVORE EMERALD CBD + ADAPTOGENS DEEP MOISTURE GLOW OIL

An oil with 100mg full-spectrum CBD, hemp seed oil and adaptogens to visibly calm the look of redness and nourish skin with lasting hydration. This skin moisturising oil provides skin with rich moisture and a glow that is lit – all in a lightweight, quick-absorbing formula.

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
2. ​SUPERGOOP! UNSEEN SUNSCREEN BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 40​​

Sunscreen and Primer in one! A weightless, colorless, scentless, oil-free formula for your face that smoothes the appearance of pores. This sunscreen and primer has amazing reviews!

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
3. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin

This is my go-to for everyday wear. I discovered the color Sin in one of my Urban Decay Palettes and used it up before all the others (you know how it is). So I went and bought a single shadow in this shade. It’s a neutral champagne color with a little shimmer to make your eyes sparkle and look alive! Not too warm, not too cool, it’s perfection. What I love about Urban Decay eye shadows is how pigmented they are, so you don’t need to use a lot. Pro tip: tap a little water over your eye-lid before applying the eyeshadow as this will intensify the color even more.

With over 2,000 five-star reviews and more than 350,000 loves at Sephora, it’s a must-have you won’t be disappointed with.

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
4. LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURIZER

A sheer-coverage multitasker for a healthy, no-makeup look and a natural dewy finish. This best-selling tinted moisturizer has over 1,000 five-star reviews and more than 20,000 loves at Sephora.

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
5. LANCOME DEFINICILS LENGTHENING & DEFINING MASCARA

Totally iconic, award-winning mascara that delivers lavishly long and perfectly defined lashes with ultimate separation. With over 3,000 five-star reviews and 40,000 loves, you’ve just found your new favorite mascara!

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
6. ESTEE LAUDER BRONZE GODDESS POWDER BRONZER

Hailed as a super-luxurious powder bronzer, it truly gives the perfect glow and sun-kissed color. I’ve used this best-selling bronzer for years, one compact seems lasts forever too (so it’s great value for money). it has hundreds of five-star reviews and with great reason!

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
7. NAILS INC LIFE HACK PERSONALITY NAIL POLISH​

Personality nail polishes that let you match your manicure to your mantra. Each shade is a highly-pigmented, creamy formulation for full-coverage, long-wearing results. With a patented brush that’s ergonomically designed to work with the shape of the nail, and is also wide and flat to minimize the number of strokes required, it helps you create a flawless manicure at home.

At only $11 (yes, you read that right), with over 6,100 loves and all five-star reviews, it’s one to grab.

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
8. REPLICA BEACH WALK PERFUME​

This Beach Walk perfume is a modern floral fragrance that evokes the memory of a stroll along the ocean, capturing the sunny scents of a summer day with radiant notes of lemon, coconut milk, and cedarwood. It is a distinctive warm floral fragrance that evokes the impression of sun and carefree bliss. Beach Walk is part of the ‘REPLICA’ Memories Collection – a family of scents designed to evoke personal memories that each one of us can recall. I love this perfume and personally use it as one of my everyday fragrances. With over 30,000 loves from Sephora, it’s a really beautiful and popular scent!

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
9. DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C SUKARI BABYFACIIAL AHA AND BHA MASK

Your beauty salon at home! This is a professional quality AHA/BHA “facial” that resurfaces to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone and a more youthful radiance. This innovative at-home facial contains a whopping 25 percent AHA and two percent BHA blend including the dream team glycolic plus tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids to gently but efficiently resurface as it exfoliates the pore lining, getting rid of built-up dead skin cells by breaking down the substance that holds them to the surface.

With over 1,000 five-star reviews and more than 190,000 loves at Sephora, it’s the holy-grail of skincare products… definitely a must-try!

​ ​
​ ​
​ ​
10. LOVING TAN SELF TANNING MOUSSE

Guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how OBSESSED I am with this self tanner, it is the best self tanner ever. I use their darkest color called Ultra Dark, but don’t be scared – it’s perfect. I get the rich almond tan color I want with only one coat. Why I love this tanner so much? It goes on dark – so not only do you know where it’s been applied to get an even finish, but it also means when you need a tan in a hurry, you’ve got one. It dries quickly and doesn’t smell. The other important thing to me is how a fake tanner wears off – this one lasts a full week and then just fades, it doesn’t go patchy.

I always use this deluxe tan applicator mitt, which makes all the difference and gives the most flawless finish (plus protects your hands from tanner).
