Color Inspiration: The Last Days of Summer

Image for Color Inspiration: The Last of Summer

If you need us this weekend, we’ll be poolside or outside somewhere enjoying the last days of summer and soaking up as much sun as possible. We can’t wait to relax and enjoy the long holiday weekend before the new season begins. We’ll also be wearing Seething Jealousy, the passionate teal green creme that is the perfect transitional color. Cheers and happy Labor Day!

What colors are inspiring you this week?


Back to You Beauty with Ginny

scotch natural back to you beauty

Every August like clockwork we get into the mind set of “newness” as we gear up for back to school. For us adults instead of back to school shopping, we’re all about “back to you” shopping. At the top of my “back to you” list are new skin care products so I stopped by Citrine one of my favorite natural beauty bars to stock up.

First on my list was Tata Harper’s Reparative Moisturizer, which is a favorite because it’s super hydrating. It’s ideal for dehydrated skin and perfect for our harsh desert climates. Next on the list were two new products, May Lindstrom’s Skin Problem Solver Correcting Masque and Kjaer Weis’ Cream FoundationMay Lindstrom’s Correcting Masque works to reveal radiant skin as it purifies, heals and detoxifies. Not only is this product perfect for my skin but I can share it with my teenage son who suffers from bouts of acne. The Cream Foundation by Kjaer Weis (I absolutely love their eye shadows) is formulated to moisturize and includes age-defying ingredients. I love the coverage.

I can’t wait to try out the goods and ensure that my skin is ready for the new “school” year ahead. The best part is all three skin care products are natural so you don’t have to worry about any nasty chemicals.

What’s on your “back to you” list?

Trend Alert: Graphic Lines

graphic lines with scotch naturals

Recently on InStyle, celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi shared a DIY tutorial for nail art inspired by graphic lines. We usually shy away from DIY nail art but this tutorial looks super easy and anything really goes, from criss crosses to vertical and horizontal lines. The best part is you don’t have to worry about it being too perfect and that’s a nail art trend we’ll support. So this fall we’ll be rocking our graphic lines with low key outfits to let our DIY nail art really pop. Cheers!

What nail art trends are you excited about?
