Thankfully, it is that time of year when we take out our much needed summer preparation checklist. For those of you lucky enough to live in the ‘sunny’ states year round, I have taken it upon myself to educate you as to what a “New York City Summer Checklist” entails.
It goes something like this:
___ Transition closets from winter to summer clothes, since a closet in NYC capable of holding more than one season’s wardrobe is a rare commodity. Heck, I even use my oven to store my shoes.
___ Confirm invite with friends to the Hamptons or Jersey Shore for Memorial Day Weekend.
___ Purchase self tanner or hit the spray tan salon. (The risk of baring your winter white legs could be a visual hazard to those around you.)
___ Run to Bloomingdales for a new bathing suit. Mental note for next year: force myself to go to the gym all winter long, instead of hibernating like a grizzly bear.
___ Run to Sephora and purchase the latest “Summer” color lipstick and eye shadows. Oh ya, if you confirmed the invite to the beach, then don’t forget water proof mascara.
___ Boots to sandals…a pedicure is a MUST!
___ Buy sun block!
___ Get excited for Friday summer hours at work. Half days baby!
Once you have checked off your list, the unofficial start of summer is here!
But, as I started this entire blog with the teaser of “Cocktails”, I feel as though I owe you a few delectable recipes! After all, what would summer be without a few cocktails’?
There are cocktails you get at a bar, cocktails you can make at home… then, every now and again, a fresh take on a cocktail comes along to take your ‘summer days of beauty’ to a whole new level.
Let me be your Mixologist this summer and refresh yourself with one of SerafinoSays Beauty Cocktails. It’s a sure way to guarantee a summer of fun in the sun…
Pretty in Pink:
Mixing Directions: Start with a base coat then apply one coat of Sugar Daddy, let dry completely, then finish with one coat of Fed Up. Let dry and reach for another cocktail. Your nails will glisten against the backdrop of the cocktail.
Mixing Directions: Start by applying a coat of Avon Ultra Color Rich Moisture seduction lipstick in Red Kiss. Wow, seduction, Red Kiss…I’m loving this cocktail already! Then apply a small amount of Smashbox In Bloom Lip Gloss in Endless Kiss over for a sexy pucker.
