A "Do Not Forget" List for Beach Days

A

Alright babes, I put together a list of your beach must haves that you definitely won't want to forget for your days at the beach. You're Welcome (;

 

1. Towel or Sheet

This one is kind of obvious. No one wants to lay on the hot sand. A sheet is huge so you'll have plenty of room but a towel will do just fine. I suggest bringing a towel if you plan on taking a dip in the water.

 

2. Dark Tanning Oil

If you have fair skin or burn easily, for the love of God, do not forget sunscreen you will regret it and it's totally not worth the gnarly sunburn. For my ladies who tend not to burn I suggest wearing sunscreen but definitely make sure you bring your Dark Tanning Oil by Sainte Muse, you will leave the beach with an effortless dark tan.

 

3.Water

Do not forget to bring water. This is bound to take a toll on your body that only water can restore. It is so important to stay hydrated when spending a day in the hot sun.

4. Book or Magazine

I prefer to stay off my phone while I'm at the beach and although the view is nice and people watching is entertaining, I like to bring a good book or magazine to get into while I'm relaxing on the beach.

 

5. Luxe Rosé Facial Mist

Your skin is definitely not feeling it's best when you're sweating your a$$ off at the beach, so bring a facial mist like the Luxe Rosé Facial Mist to spray on your face when it feels gross or sweaty. It will leaves your face refreshed and feeling better than ever.

 

6. Sunnies

You'll most deff want a cute pair of sunnies to protect your eyes from the sun while you're laying on the beach looking fab, and to stunt in cute insta photos.

 

Those are the basics that I can't have an enjoyable beach day without. Of course you can personalize your bag to fit your needs but make you're not forgetting these 6 things and I promise you a beautiful successful beach day. Enjoy.

xoxo, Taylor

5 Tips for Beautiful Summer Skin

5 Tips for Beautiful Summer Skin

Summer is officially here and in honor of that, I am going to be sharing five tips to get that beautiful summer skin without too much effort. I know in the summer months I tend to shy away from wearing makeup as much. It’s hot and I hate having to worry about if I am sweating off my makeup or not, and besides who want’s to wear a face full of makeup to the beach? Not me. BUT if I am not going to be wearing makeup, I need my skin to be on it’s best behavior. So these are the five tips and products that I use to make sure my skin is looking it’s best.

 

Exfoliate. Get rid of dead skin with the Coconut Coffee Scrub from Sainte Muse. The scrub gently removes dead skin cells and the Coconut oil moisturizes, leaving your skin smelling great and feeling smooth. The Coconut Coffee Scrub is gentle enough to use on your face as well.

Cleanse. Start and end your day with a clean face. Massage the Créme Cleanser from Sainte Muse, made with a powerful blend of vitamins and antioxidants, onto your face to wash away dirt and oil. It will leave your skin radiant.

Hydrate.Your face and lips need hydration just as much as your body and in the summer you could use some extra moisture, something lightweight, like the Doux Moisturizer by Sainte Muse. It is oil free and will nourish your skin while you’re soaking up the rays. Treat your lips with the Mega Balm from Sainte Muse with a blend of the best vitamins and antioxidants. It will eliminate any kind of dryness.

Glow. Facial oils help hydrate your skin and give you a natural glow. The Gloss Face Oil by Sainte Muse is the perfect facial oil if you’re looking to add clarity and radiance instantly. It is formulated for all skin types and also helps soothe irritated or damaged skin.

Refresh. With the sun comes heat. Refresh your skin with the Luxe Rosé Facial Mist from Sainte Muse. It will help control excess oil and strengthen skin cells. Perfect for an afternoon out in the sun when your skin just needs a nice quick refresher.

3 Early Summer Skincare Essentials

3 Early Summer Skincare Essentials

Having clear, healthy looking skin is important in the summer. I don’t know about you ladies but I find myself wearing makeup way less in the summer, so a good face wash is a must. My favorite cleanser is the Créme Cleanser by Sainte Muse. It always leaves my face feeling clean, smooth, and refreshed. The powerful blend of vitamins and antioxidants work fast giving your skin a fresh and healthy look.

 

 

 

 

When thinking of the heat and humidity that comes with summer days and nights you might think I’ve gone crazy suggesting a facial oil is your skin care routine. Why would you load your skin with oil when you’re already trying to combat sweat and shine on a daily basis? BUT as it turns out, your skin can really benefit from using a facial oil. Facial oils are awesome all year round. Regardless of the season, the nourishment, hydration, and protection oils offer are beneficial. The Gloss Face Oil by Sainte Muse will leave your skin feeling hydrated like never before. It absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy feeling on your face. It will leave your skin clear and glowing.

 

 

There is nothing better than late summer nights, but the dark circles under your eyes the next morning are not so great. The 24K Gold Under Eye Mask by Sainte Muse will totally take care of that. In under 20 minutes the mask will rid your eyes of dark circles and smooth fine lines. The gold hydrates and expels toxins while 100% collagen and a host of skin-tightening minerals reduce wrinkles and soften the areas around your eyes for tighter, more youthful looking skin. 

 

 

These are the three things I can’t survive summer without. I definitely recommend investing if you want to maintain beautiful, healthy skin through out the summer months. I hope you babes enjoyed, sending all my good vibes and positivity.

5 WAYS TO GET BEACH WAVES!

5 WAYS TO GET BEACH WAVES!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Beach waves are a summer essential. They look incredible on short hair or long, thin or thick, straight or curly. Also, it really doesn't take much effort and there’s so many ways to achieve beach waves. Count me in.

 Below are 5 different ways to get the best looking beach waves!

 

 

1.) Braid before you sleep: This is the lazy girl’s ways to get beach waves, so me. After you shower, towel dry your hair. Separate your hair into 2-6 sections, so that you end up with 2-6 braids depending on how big you want your waves to be. Braid the sections. Go to sleep looking like some kind of alien and wake up with beautiful beach waves. Run your fingers through it and spritz with a sea salt spray for some more texture.

 

2.) Wand it: Another way I curl my hair is with a curling wand. It gives you that beach wave look without too much time or effort. The size of barrel just depends on how big you want
your waves to be. Before you begin curling, spritz your hair with a heat protector, your hair will thank you. Then take one
inch pieces of hair. wrap around barrel (leave the bottom 2 inches out) and keep it there until your hair is warm to touch. Reminder, be incredibly careful not to burn yourself. Once you’re done curling, let your hair cool, then run your fingers through your waves for a more natural look, then spritz with hairspray.

 

3.) Scrunch it: If your hair is naturally wavy, you can get beach waves in like 2 minutes. Literally just spritz some sea
salt spray, to towel-dried hair and scrunch it. Let it air dry and you’ll have that perfect beach wave look.

 

4.) Straightener: A flat iron, can have many uses. You can not only use it to obviously straighten your hair, but also curl it! Take one inch sections of straight hair, clamp a few inches

below the root, slowly move the iron down and rotate in a halfway turn. While rotating seamlessly move the iron down your hair.

 

5.) Curling Iron: Before doing anything involving a hot tool, make sure to spray hair with hair protectant. Follow that up by brushing through to get rid of any tangles. Using a wide-barrel iron, take on inch sections of your hair, open the clamp, twist & curl, and move it down your hair, leaving out the bottom two inches. For beachy, messier waves, you should alternate between curling your hair towards and away from your face.

 

 

With five different waves to get that perfect beach wave look, I’d say you’re just about ready to hit the beach. Just don’t forget your Dark Tanning Oil by Sainte Muse so you can get a perfect tan to match your perfect hair. (;

Boss Babe Interview - Danielle Rocha

Boss Babe Interview - Danielle Rocha

I got the pleasure to interview Danielle Rocha, owner and designer of Rocha Swim, a hot swim suit line, that you totally need in your life. She not only designs all the swim suits but also hand makes them. Now we are giving you the opportunity to hear a little bit about her life, her business, and her advice! 

 

Hometown: Santa Barbara, CA

Current Location: Santa Barbara, CA

Birth Sign: Taurus

Hobbies and Interests: Gardening, being active, outdoors, drawing, riding dirt bikes, fashion & design 

 

Describe your style: I've always been a tomboy, but I also love feeling pretty... My style is usually street wear/casual but I love including one piece into my outfits that enhances my womanly curves. And I've done the same with my swimwear, they are designed for the everyday active girl that loves feeling pretty and loves her curves.

 

What do you say was the biggest challenge when creating a company from scratch?: My biggest challenge would definitely be my age, and not because people wouldn't take me serious but not many 19 year olds have a ton of money saved up to start a business from the ground up and I did not grow up in a wealthy family. Of course my parents and boyfriend helped me however they could, but the start up costs of a business is what I struggled with.

 

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?: In the next 5 years I see myself having a family, Rocha Swim running it's self for the most part, traveling even more than I do now for events, photoshoots and different fashion weeks. And walking into boutiques and seeing a Rocha Swim display with all our products.

 

So you created your own bathing suit line which is incredibly impressive, can you tell me a little bit about it and what inspired you to start it?: Rocha Swim is a Brazilian/ 1980s inspired bikini line. I was inspired to start Rocha Swim when I kept dealing with the same issue over and over again. As a very petite woman with curves I've always had a hard time finding suits that fit, it seemed like the only ones that fit were the suits in the Junior Section (which I was not fond of.) The more women I ran into that had this issue made me realize there was a problem that needed to be fixed.

 

You design and hand make all of the bathing suits, which means you have complete creative control how do you come up with new ideas for designs?: Yes having complete creative control is awesome! (and exhausting at times.) Because my line is Brazilian/ 1980's inspired means I am always looking in the past and present. Whether it's looking at pictures of my mom when she was younger and studying the clothes they wore, or studying the daring cuts of bikinis that are popular in Brazil right now. As a creative its hard to explain what inspires me, I could look at a piece of stone and see different images in it or see texture that I think would look great on a bikini.

 

Do you have inspiring female role models that motivate you? Tell me about them.: YES!!! Im pretty sure if I wrote about all of them this would turn into a 20 page interview. I have a great friends, family and co workers that inspire me every single day. Some inspire me business wise, or some inspire me fashion wise and some even inspire me to be a better person/ business owner.

 

Advice for Future Boss Girls?: NEVER, EVER give up. It's so easy to give up when times get tough, but all you gotta do is remind yourself that you truly are a Boss Babe and no one can stop you from succeeding.

 

How do you stay inspired and refreshed?: Traveling, I recently went to Japan for a couple weeks and I could not believe how inspired I was by the culture, the fashion, the food, the scenery.

 

What is the best piece of business advice you have ever received?: Quality over Quantity.

 

What does a “typical” day look like for you? : My typical day, usually I wake up eat some breakfast, get ready, head out to my shop, work there most of the day, head over to the post office to drop off everyones order's, head to the gym after, then eat dinner, post to social media on Rocha Swim, read some fashion blogs and then get ready for bed. Some days depending on how stressful my day was I like to put on a mask right before bed to relax a bit.

 

On that note, what does your morning routine look like?: My morning, I wake up around 7:30am. Watch Good Morning America for a bit while checking emails and social media notifications on my phone, get up, wash my face with my whole skin care routine, while my moisturizer is soaking in I make some breakfast, if I'm feeling lazy its cereal, if I'm feeling really hungry and in the mood to cook I'll make avocado toast with an egg, turkey bacon and potatoes with a glass of OJ. Once I'm done eating, I brush my teeth, apply my make up and then do my hair.. pick out what I'm wearing for the day and put it on and usually right after that I'm out the door and on with my day. 

 

 

 

 Hope you all enjoyed this interview, and a special thanks to our Boss Babe Danielle for her time on this interview. Don’t forget to check out Rocha Swim and stock up on bathing suits for the summer, and nothing goes better with swim suits than my all time favorite tanning oil, The Dark Tanning Oil by Sainte Muse. With a dark tan and a hot swim suit, you'll be ready to slay at the beach all summer long!
