My Ipanema Wishlist


Spring is here and summer is not far behind. It is officially time to start dusting off those flip flops. I must admit that I am a flip flop addict. I simply cannot resist purchasing them if I see a cute pair. They are so versatile especially when you live in a warmer climate. Ipanema is one company that offers a nice range of styles and they have no shortage of cute. I've compiled my wishlist below.

1. Jewel II
This style can easily be taken from day to night. It comes in a variety of colors (5 in all)
and retails for £25. I love the added touch of jewels. The coral and gold just screams summer to me. I'm sure you'll find a combination for your summer adventures too.

2. Ipanema Heart II
Black is the most versatile and this style is the perfect blend of edgy and cute. The large heart detail gives you a bit more coverage than your average flip flop but they are still fun enough to wear while bearing some leg. They retail for £20 and come in four different colors. These would be my go-to flip flops for everyday.
3. Ipanema Lovely II
Finally for that pop of color we all crave during the summer months we have the Ipanema Lovely II. This one is perfect for lounging on the beach or strolling the shops along the shore. It retails for £17 and comes in 6 fashions colors. I like the orange and pink combination below.

Now that I've shared my wish list, what would be your picks? Head to Ipanema and check out all of their designs to find your favorites. In addition to women's styles, you can also shop for the kids and men in your life. They are quite affordable compared to other brands. You will not be disappointed!

Benefits of Ginger Tea

Did you know that Ginger tea can help your digestion, ease menstrual cramps and lower inflammation? Neither did I!

I actually came across some awesome pins on this very subject today because I had some ginger tea in my cupboard and wanted to get the scoop on the benefits of it. I was slightly bloated too and since the packet stated it helped with digestion I gave it a go and it really helped. I also had a mild headache going on and it eased that pain as well. 

The tea I had was Yogi ginger tea. I've also read ginger and lemon is an awesome combination and Yogi teas offers this combination. So long story short, if you're shopping for tea give ginger a try!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips. They came in my Spring beauty VoxBox from Influenster. What really impressed me about these strips is that they are not stickers. They are actually real nail polish that you stick on. The best part is there is no dry time!

Well, I was hooked. I have since purchased 3 more! I've even done my toes with these. They last a really long time too. I went two weeks without chipping. I'm sure your results will vary but they come off with regular nail polish remover and are very simple to apply so if you're in the market for some new nail polish I urge you to try Sally Hansen Nail Strips instead! Learn more at (Retail $9.99)
