links of the week

Happy Friday everyone! Summer is finally here in Chicago and I’m excited to relax by the pool this week and detox my body and apartment this weekend before the crazy month of August begins. Can you believe that it’s already mid-July! PS: I’m getting married in THREE months. Holy schmokes.

Onto my favorite links of the week…

A friend of mine was featured on Glitter Guide this week spilling out the contents of her beauty bag. I can attest to her amazing skin/beauty habits and will definitely be picking up a few of these must-have items myself.

I’ve been told over and over again that drinking lemon water has amazing health benefits, but I never knew exactly what it did until I read this article. I’m up for anything that helps your metabolism and has skin benefits!

If you haven’t  heard…Nordstrom is having their anniversary sale this weekend. Brighton has some of the best shopping guides that I’ve seen around the bloggersphere. I especially love her buy now, wear year round guide. If you’re looking for beauty specific finds, check out my post from earlier this week!

The Beauty Department shared tips on how to prevent concealer from creasing. I can’t wait to try their method this weekend!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
