Friday Faves of the Month (on Thursday)

I cannot believe it's the last day of July! The summer is flying by (as it tends to do) and has been so fun.  In case you missed it, I had a guest post over at Bedknobs & Baubles sharing my 5 packing essentials for visiting Kennebunkport, ME. Here are the faves of the month - happy August tomorrow!

Summer tip: make your own tinted moisturizer

I ran out of tinted moisturizer recently and so in a pinch, created my own. It was so easy!
I just mixed a pump of my foundation (right now using this Laura Mercier one) and my daily moisturizer (this one by Clarins).

I will say that the consistency and coverage can vary, but I like being able to play around with the shade. I may not buy a pre-made tinted moisturizer again!

Do you have any DIY makeup tips like this?



A night on the town with Uber Boston & Ideeli

Starting today, Uber Boston is partnering with Ideeli to give Uber riders the opportunity for a night on the town! The package includes Ideeli credit to dress yourself for a lavish dinner in Boston, while cruising around in your private UberSUV.  Ideeli shares more details on their blog post.

When Uber approached me about sharing this opportunity, I was happy to participate because I use Uber all the time when going out with friends or out to dinner with DC.

It's just so easy: you download the app on your iPhone/Android/Blackberry, request a ride (SUV, taxi, or black car), and your driver will be on the way!  You store your credit card safely in the app, so there is no need for cash, yahoo!

Here's how the Ideeli contest works: download the app and use the code LaVieJaime for $30 off your first ride or use this link: https://get.uber.com/c/LaVieJaime. When you enter this code you automatically are entered in the Ideeli contest.  So fun!

PS: A few things above I am loving on Ideeli right now, perfect for a night on the town: this LWDturquoise wristlet clutch, and snakeskin pumps.

Disclaimer: I am provided an Uber compensation for anyone who signs up using this code. All opinions are my own.



Sailing kite

I love this sailing kite from Terrain. Can you imagine how fun it would be to see one of these on the beach?! It comes in blue too, but I am partial to yellow. I think it'd be a cute hostess gift if you were staying at a friend or family member's beach house. You can check out more styles and colors at Haptic Lab too. Anchors aweigh!


Seaside maxi inspiration

I love this Gypsy 05 maxi skirt that is part of Anthropologie's new July collection. The aptly titled "seaside" vibe and movement got me inspired to collect a few items in this color palette.
