So, I started watching 100 Days of Summer on Bravo last week, and it is so bizarre. I don’t know who these people are or where they are, but that is not the Chicago that I am acquainted with! But like with all trashy TV, I found myself sucked in and watched a couple episodes in a row. They kept talking about how short summer in Chicago is, and everyone works hard and plays hard, and just cuts loose when the weather gets warm. That I can get on board with!

I don’t know about everyone else, but I am so incredibly tired of this winter! It feels like it’s been dragging on for forever. To keep myself from going insane, I’ve been dreaming of a hot, sunny, Chicago summer. I know I’ll be complaining about the ridiculous humidity and heat radiating off the city streets six months from now, but with the thermostat currently hovering at 1 degree I just can’t seem to make myself care. I’m too eager to get the feeling back in my fingers and toes! I already know what I’ll be toting in my bag for those 100 magical days, so scroll on down for some wistful warm weather dreaming.


Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream

I plan on spending my weekends at the beach, but I don’t plan on wearing a full face of makeup to the beach. I received a sample of this SuperGoop CC Cream in a Birchbox last summer, and will be buying the full size come spring! I like a little coverage, and I love a lot of SPF.


COOLA SPF 35 Sport Spray for Body – Citrus Mimosa

I can’t neglect the rest of my skin–remember, my New Years resolution! I’ve heard good things about this COOLA sunscreen. I love a spray instead of a cream or lotion, so this will be my go-to.


Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes

This was another Birchbox discovery, and one that totally saved my feet after moving to Chicago. Schlepping around in sandals can cause some major dirt and grime issues {gross, I know… but it’s true}, so I plan on carrying these wipes in my purse to freshen up my feet and get rid of dirt and sand. Plus, they smell totally delicious and minty and cool your tootsies.


Whish Coconut Milk Correcting Gel

Just because I’m going to try and take care of my skin doesn’t mean I’ll be totally successful. For those moments when I get too much sun, I’ll turn to Whish Coconut Milk Correcting Gel. According to the description on Birchbox.com: It’s formulated with a blend of hardworking natural oils, essential amino acids, and organic botanical extracts that help turn back the clock and even heals sunburns. How amazing does that sound? And I bet it smells incredible, too. Love Whish.
