Summer is undoubtedly great, but with summer comes an endless list of beauty problems that tend to get out of hand. Untamed frizz, uneven tans, bubbly nail polish, cakey foundation, the list goes on and on. Need some help with these every day encounters? Keep readin' on!1) Put your nail polish in the fridge! This will help it stay smooth and cool for use! Say buh-bye to bubbly polish!2) Use dryer sheets to tame your frizz. It might look totally weird wiping your entire head of hair with dryer sheets, but anything to stay frizz free for the day, right?3) Instead of using foundation, switch to a light BB cream. BB creams are much less cakey, and will still give you that nice, sheer coverage!
4) Oops! Got a bit of BB cream stain on your white blouse? Not a problem. Use a bit of shaving cream. Dab a dollop of it on the stain before placing it in the wash. Your blouse will be good as new.
5) In a rush? Soak your nails in ice water to make them dry faster!6) Saline is your year old mascara's best friend! Put a couple drops of saline into your mascara tube, and BAM, reusable.7) Wait! Don't throw away your tea bags just yet. Toss them in the freezer for a couple minutes, and then place it under your eyes to de-puff.8) Place a bit of vaseline on your wrists before spraying your favorite perfume. The scent will last SO much longer.9) Sweat, ocean water, and perfume are the three biggest enemies of your jewelry. Try to keep your beloved pieces away from them!10) Did you know that beer cleans gold? And ketchup is also known to clean silver! Stop spending money on expensive cleansing solutions and use this hack to sparkle up your jewels!

Kylie's lip skits have been a huge hit, and by huge I mean literally HUGE- selling out just minutes after each restock. To many people, a beautiful lip color needs to go with the perfect eye makeup, bronzer, blush, and fleekin' eyebrows. What many don't realize is that a quality statement necklace will enhance the gloss better than any other makeup product. It draws closer attention to the lower half of your face, which is exactly what you want after spending $40.13 on a lipstick. Follow DearMissJ's exclusive fashion formulas to combine Kylie's glam with DearMissJ's boldness for the trendiest summer look!
Kendall Pearl Necklace + Kourt K = Bold ContrastKylie without Kendall? That's simply incomplete! The blue tassels and the hint of deep purple will compliment each other perfectly for a cool and warm contrast. You guaranteed the spotlight of any occasion.
Meggie Pearl Necklace + 22 = Modern ClassicRed lipsticks will always bring back a timeless look. 22's subtle hint of orange will still give off the same classy vibe, but with a bit of fun! The Meggie necklace features black mink fur that surrounds half of the necklace, bringing you back to the classy mid 1900s when fur was the biggest fashion statement! 22 never looked so hot!
Aurora Necklace + KoKo K = Chic, on a whole new level.The Aurora necklace is one of DearMissJ's signature pieces, bringing about a sense of playful youth and elegance. KoKo K, a rich pinky nude, will do the perfect job when it comes to complimenting pearls of any color, shape, and size.
Size totally matters. Especially when it comes to statement jewelry!
Last October, DearMissJ took you on a short and sweet staycation to San Francisco's hottest tourist spots. This month, we'll be introducing the most delicious foodie favorites SF has to offer!
Hollow. Find this cute little shop on 1435 Irving Street. Everyone deserves a cup of quality coffee to start their day. This hipster cafe will guarantee a cup of freshly grounded coffee at an affordable price!
The Plow, located at the heart of 18th Street. It's the best place for a large serving size of traditional American breakfast foods. The atmosphere is so relaxing, definitely a great family brunch spot!
The Franciscan Crab Restaurant. This glamorous restaurant provides a beautiful seaside view while enjoying your favorite authentic and fresh seafoods. Stop by for a bowl of creamy clam chowder after touring Fisherman's Wharf!
Dessert is a must, and Ghirardelli Square is the place to be. Located on 900 North Point Street, this is a popular landmark where people of all ages stop by to satisfy their sweet tooth. Besides ordering the famous Ghirardelli hot fudge Sunday, you also have the chance to browse around various other stores, and maybe settle for some more fine dinning!
Here's a toast to good eats, cheers!
Right about now is when you begin worrying about when to hit up the gym, what beaches to visit, where the new local hot spots are, how to get that Victoria’s Secret summer glow and most importantly...looking fabulous while at it this summer. Timeless and handcrafted, DearMissJ’s collections will keep you stylish all season long and beyond. Check out the hottest trends of summer 2016, because DearMissJ has the perfect jewels to revamp your summer wardrobe.
Stack on the Rings. Let your delicate hands make a statement by stacking your rings this season. This piece looks great with a loose white tee and distressed jeans, or with a flowy sundress and leather tote. The Lucy-Gold and Lucy-Silver rings add the perfect amount of sparkle to a casual outfit. Wear them alone or together, either way works!
Add Interesting Shapes. Eye-catching, geometric shapes are everywhere this summer from interior decor to statement accessories. The Courtney Earrings and Courtney Necklace are perfect statements to this trend. Minimal and classy, you will fall head over heels for its versatility. These dainty pieces will be the highlight of your summer collection.
Accent with lots of GOLD. Gold accents and summer go hand-in-hand. Nothing pairs better with bold turquoises, blues, and corals than a tiny pop of gold. We love the caged Sarah Pearl Necklace, because you can wear it to work, the beach or an evening summer soiree.
Try an Ear Cuff. Get trendy by showing off your inner biker chick! Not a fan of that punk rock style? Don’t worry, DearMissJ has the perfect solution for you. We love this gold leaf accented Rachel Ear Cuff. Classy yet unexpected, it gives off a sweet impression while subtly bringing out your daring charisma. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail and throw on your favorite leather pieces for a bold statement, or scrunch up a messy bun and put on a flowy dress for an easy day look.
Add a Splash of Color. We love accenting with deep emerald and ruby tones. This summer is all about adding subtle pops of color. The Lulu Emerald ring is our favorites go-to for achieving this trendy look. The deep emerald and gold combination is so chic, and can be styled with anything from a LBD to a crisp white blouse.
