Living Life Like It's Golden




With the holiday weekend coming up, many of us are heading for a pool, a beach or some bar-b-que party. I hope that you are well prepared to spice up your looks as we transition into summer! You've got your show stopper sandals right? A spicy swimsuit, killler sunglasses, a perfect go-to dress that you can easily change up with different accessories like bangels, long necklaces, and stunning earrings? If you're not into the fedora look, what about a glam scarf that can double as a wrap.
I dare not forget sunscreen, Hawaiian Tropic has a spf 50 body lotion that smells like pina coladas in a bottle! You'll need a hot new lipgloss or lipstick in a shade that pops up your gorgeous factor like coral or fuscia and top it off with a little brush of bronzer around the corners of your face. Lastly, as you breezily leave the house, it's time to put away the heavy winter perfumes and experiment with something light and fresh to give you that extra summer sparkle. Keep it glam. xoxo

I haven't had any plans for the long weekend, but after seeing this post, I think I should plan a trip to the beach or something! I can't wait to start swimming and laying out in the sun again.

Ok, I've got to go to a beach NOW! And I think Kate Moss looks so fab in these pictures!

its simple love said...

she does not look like a 12! Love that magazines are featuring more natural woman. Though there is so so much more room to grow in that department.

I will have to try the Hawaiian Tropic, I would love the pina colada smell! I hope to be pool side with my children and my sister's family! Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

stephanie Toole said...

Totally have the Hawaiian Tropic.. was waiting forever for them to have more than that tanning oil.. I just think of the sun and get burnt.. But i love the pearl necklaces in that one pic.. have to find some like that!

MarchMusings said...

Loved looking at the sidebar with some of my fave icons like Christy, Helena and Yasmeen. Wonder where Yasmeen is now? I don't see her in any ads.

the southern hostess said...

Such gorgeous finds! Love all those jewel tones.

Miss*Kimmy said...

This is a great post .. I love all the photos of Kate Moss you have. I want to try the KISS KISS lipstick .. its expensive though =P

Love, Sweetcheeks said...

OMg! I love just about every photo you took on your post! that green bathing suit is wicked hott! It totally caught my eye. Its amazing how one-piece bathing suits are so in-style now and how much more and more they begin to resemble club attire. that makes them all the more sexier!

Great post hun :)

Jen said...

this is a great summer post! i'm craving that yellow bikini and all those sandals and wedges are fantastic. :)

Ashley said...

I can't believe summer is here! I better start doing some crunches, lol! I loooooove that first green bathing suit you posted, it's simply stunning!

Pop Champagne said...

ohhh these swimwear are nice, I've been wanting a sexy 1 piece for a while now, but I'm not sure if I'd wear it tanning cuz it might leave some funky tan lines hehe. Regardless I'm still really thinking of buying one!

bollywoodstylediaries said...

I am totally ready to transition to summer but my body is refusing to let go of at least 20lb:-) beautiful pics!!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Your posts are truly the most inspiring things!! :)

Fé... said...

Wow, a whole lot of inspiration in a single post. Only you can do this marvelous thing, Taj Acosta. All those series of picture give me this urge to go summer shopping. I'm so in love with the green-yellow bag! The only problem is it keeps raining here in Surabaya. Damn. I want my summer!

Bardot in Blue said...

I love all the fabulous one pieces!

Dusk said...

Your collection of images always makes my mouth water...which sounds rather sick actually!!
These are all soooo evocative, provocative and stunning!!

KÍA said...

somehow this summer Im obsess with swimwears and wedges

Roxy Te Owens said...

Stila's Outrageous lip color is a red orange that I love! Burberry Brit Sheer is divine for everyday and especially the beach. A smashing bikini from Galleries Lafayette en France did me well ;)
