Hello friends, I missed you! Over the past week I’ve been recovering from my June road trip to and from Santa Fe, checking in with friends and trying to settle back into some semblance of a routine, which has been challenging.

Aside from what you see here, I didn’t make it home with much in the way of souvenirs, unless you count snugger fitting clothes courtesy of Santa Fe green chile, frybread and Sierra Nevada on tap. I’m pretty sure this is why summer, bikinis and beaches were invented–to keep these kinds of indulgences in check.

As much as I missed Laguna’s breezy weather, the 4,300 species of flowering plants to be found nowhere else in North America but California and the comforts of home–now that I’m back, I find myself thinking about the night blooming lilies and cottonwood trees that look exactly how Georgia O’Keeffe painted them. I’m also missing the discipline of daily drawing class and the new friends I made.

It seems only fitting that this week’s beauty round up be inspired by the colors of the desert.

The tans and corals of the desert make for pretty lip colors – The Hollywood Nude Lip Palette by Skinn and Mally’s Lip Magnifier in luminous Petal Pink are a couple of easy to wear lip options perfect for summer.

Normally I don’t wear a watch but I fell for the turquoise face of this Michael Kors chunky watch and decided it might be a good idea to rely on more than my iphone for the time.

The bleached bones of New Mexico are the inspiration for including Everday GLO Teeth Whitener in this roundup. I’m not one to have patience for teeth whitening strips so I adore this pack-and-go pen that slips into your purse, doesn’t have an icky taste, texture or downtime and gives you nice breath too.

Soap and Paper Factory’s Solid Perfume Bella, with its mix of Bergamot, Grapefruit and Black Pepper somehow reminds me of Santa Fe.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze gives a sunlit glow to your skin without the heaviness of a self-tanner and can be worn as sheer coverage without any foundation.

How has your summer been so far? Please fill me in!
