Bermuda is one of my favorite places in the whole world. Just an hour and a half flight from New York City, it’s my perfect summer getaway. I can’t wait to be on the soft pink sand beaches for the next couple of days hanging out with friends (and always under an umbrella, of course—that’s me below!). Here are a couple of the essentials I’m taking along with me, now I just need the weather to cooperate. Fingers crossed for nothing but sunshine.
Victoria’s Secret Daisy Triangle Top and Adjustable Hipster Bottom: Somehow every year I always manage to loose either a top or a bottom of a swimsuit, so I buy one new one every summer. This bikini is my latest purchase; I love the color and the adjustable bottoms.
Japonesque Tweezers: I never travel without tweezers. For years and years I was a Tweezerman devotee, but since discovering Japonesque, I have a new favorite.
Havaianas Slim Sandals: I first discovered this Brazilian flip-flop brand while living in Argentina in 2003 and have been addicted ever since. In the summer, I usually walk to work in them (I currently have about five different pairs to choose from) and they are a must for Bermuda beach-going.
Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Crime: In the winter, I love deep red berry-stained lip colors, but for summer, I am all about brights. As we proved last week, this hue is perfect for anyone and I think there is nothing more appropriate than rocking a bright pink pout when you’re somewhere tropical.
Ray-Ban Aviators: Many sunglasses styles come and go, but these are a classic.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer: I love the healthy, dewy skin look so I always keep my eyes peeled for products to help give me that radiant glow. With this Luminizer, it was love at first sight—I just swipe it on top of my cheekbones and instantly look more fresh-faced.
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+: I am a true nut about sun. I am as pale as can be, so I prefer to spray tan and load up on the SPF when going outdoors. This ultra-lightweight and fast-absorbing sunblock is the perfect addition to my daily regimen; I put it on my face, décolleté, and the tops of my hands before doing anything else in the morning and I definitely wouldn’t leave home without it.
