    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!

    It's finally starting to feel more like fall up here in the Bay Area, and we couldn't be more excited to swap out our summer cardigans for something a little more substantial.  Capes, coats, and vests are all we can think about these days.  Here are some of our favorites:

    The Cape: The quintessential fall look of sophistication.  With its minimalistic style, you can dress to the nines effortlessly.  
    J. Crew Crepe Jacket
    Burberry Color Border Cape

    The Coat: The staple everyone has in their closet.  Reinvent your look with a new coat this fall, or re-accessorize to bring an old coat back to life.  



    The Vest: With so many versions of the vest, it's hard to choose our favorite.  The puffer vest is great for casual on-the-go days, while the longline vest can even come with you to work.



    Outerwear can be like jewelry.  It can completely change your look with one piece.  Go get your coats out now and see for yourself!
