GeneralModel Moment: Carolina Sanchez

It’s time for another model moment! Last month, we had the pleasure of working with beauty Carolina Sanchez! Summer had just begun and this shoot was all about relaxing by the pool and basking in the sun! We love using playful prints in the summer, whether it be florals, polka dots, or stripes, and Carolina’s look was perfect for these summer trends. Wanna learn more about this summer goddess? Read on for an exclusive #bts interview!

Must-have beauty item?

Eyebrow gel! 

What pet would you love to have?

A white horse… 

Who is your inspiration?

My friend Jessie. She is my spiritual guide. I met her in NY over 2 years ago. We haven’t seen each other in over a year-and-a-half but she keeps inspiring me every day.

Your favorite place you have shot a campaign?

Outside of Italy in a villa/castle so far up in the mountains… the view from there was amazing, so green and humid, most charming “Castello” I’ve ever been. 

What’s the coolest experience you’ve had modeling?

Traveling is my pleasure, so every time I get to travel I’m happy! 

I would say a week in Mexico where we only shot 2 days and I had the rest of the time to explore and get tan! 

Who is your celeb crush?

At the moment, Jason Momoa!

What would you never leave the house without?

My reusable water bottle to refill. (Helps with plastic pollution. If every single one of us did that, we would live in such a better world!)

What is your fave beauty tip?

Moisturizer instead of foundation to keep your skin fresh and shiny, and brushing my eyebrows up all the time! 

What are your must-haves for 2018?

Mini dresses, highlighter, little diamond necklaces, and sliders!

DIYHappy Hour: Star-Spangled Spritzer

One of the best parts of summer is the outdoor parties, and no sunny soirée would be complete without something yummy to sip on! If you’re throwing a 4th of July bash, our Star-Spangled Spritzer belongs on your guest list! This refreshing cocktail not only tastes amazing but will wow your guests with its festive presentation. Spritzers can be made with really any fruit your heart desires, but we wanted to take advantage of the summer’s delicious berry harvest with this patriotically-themed cocktail. We also added a tiny splash of Limoncello for a tart, citrusy kick, but you can add in any liqueur that suits your preference! Read below for the how-to on this party pleaser!

Star-Spangled Spritzer

Ingredients:

-2 oz. white wine

-2. oz. French Champagne or sparkling white wine

-Splash of Limoncello

-Granny Smith apples, blueberries, and raspberries

Star-Spangled Spritzer - overhead view

Directions:

-Slice your Granny Smith apple into thin slices. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, carefully press the apple slices into star shapes.

-Add crushed ice to the bottom of a glass and layer your raspberries, blueberries, and star-shaped apple slices on top.

-Pour equal parts white wine and sparkling wine or Champagne over the ice, then top with a splash of Limoncello (or your favorite liqueur).

-Give it a gentle stir, and garnish with a few more fruits if you’d like!

Note: You can easily make a big pitcher of this ahead of time and have your guests serve themselves! Just mix equal parts white wine and sparkling wine, a healthy splash of Limoncello, and prepared fruits together in a pitcher or punch bowl. Yum!

If you prefer an alcohol-free version, just swap in flavored seltzer water or your favorite clear soda for a delicious mocktail!

The easiest way to accomplish a chic red, white, and blue look for July 4th is to focus on two of the three colors, then add in a pop of the third for a little punch of festive color. Try the Arlene Navy Blue Off-the-Shoulder Top with cutoffs for a casual outfit. Or wear the Sea Day White Skater Dress with blue sandals, then add a red lip for a finishing patriotic pop!

6679

Trade out your typical summer dress for one with a little length this 4th of July. The Lulus Maretta Blue and White Floral Print Wrap Midi Dress is flirty and fun, not to mention perfect for taking a Boomerang with your besties. Take advantage of this year’s sneaker trend to get America’s favorite comfy casual look and pair with a white denim jacket if it gets chilly out.

Trying to find the perfect look for a BBQ with your S.O. or a pool party with the girls? Stick with something comfortable when the temps start rising and beat the heat in festive crop tops and cute denim shorts. The effortless design of the Here I Go Red Lace Brami is easy to dress up or down, and perfect to pair with your favorite denim mini skirt or shorts all summer long. Or if you prefer a one-piece option, the Carraway Navy Blue and White Striped Romper is a chic way to show your stripes!

Nothing screams Independence Day like red, and for July 4th a red swimsuit is the way to go! If red isn’t your thing, try a chic white bikini you can wear on repeat all summer long or get into the spirit with a fully red, white, and blue suit! After all, you can never be too festive, right?
