Patriotic Pride with Target Style + Good HUES-Day Linkup


June went by in a flash-- I can't believe we're already heading into July-- I feel like we just moved in and summer has just begun. I always like showing my patriotic pride in red, white and blue for Fourth of July and found a few stylish and affordable pieces for the holiday at Target. Their clothing section rarely disappoints and i know I can shop there for fun, festive pieces. In fact, you can re-create this entire outfit head-to-toe for about $100 at Target!

A Peek Inside the June POPSUGAR Must Have Box

PopSugar June Must-Have Box

POPSUGAR sent me this Must Have Box to try, all opinions are my own.

It's the last week of June, have you picked up your POPSUGAR Must Have Box, yet? The June box is filled with tons of goodies and must-haves to make your summer absolutely perfect, including a beach sarong, festive nail polish, yummy snacks, even a party game for your summer BBQs! Here's a closer look at this month's goodies:


PopSugar June Must-Have Box

Before I delve into this month's content, you might be asking yourself  what exactly is a Must Have Box? Simply put, it's a lifestyle subscription box curated by the fine editors over at POPSUGAR that includes beauty, fashion, fitness, food, even home items. Every month contains new items (full-sized!) from these categories; this month's theme being outdoors summer fun.

When I'm at BBQs or chilling at the lake, I'm always on the hunt for  a bottle opener so this Sisters of Los Angeles 'Cheers' Gold Bottle Opener ($12 value) is just what I need. Plus, it's super stylish so how great would it look on a bar cart?? Another get-together must is the Wild and Wolf Ridley's Game Room "Who Am I?" Quiz ($12.95 value). This is a fun and easy-to-play game you can play with a group-- the more the merrier!

Truth time- I love pretzels and I LOVE Sriracha-- what beach/pool snack is there than these Pressels ($1.29 value)? Plus, they're low in fat and low in sodium so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your snack without the guilt.

Oddly enough, I think these Pacifica Underarm Deodorant Wipes ($9 value) are my favorite item in the entire box. They smell SO good and feel SO refreshing. Perfect to throw in your bag when you're out and about on these sweltering summer days and need to freshen up.

Also packed in the box is this lightweight Hat Attack Neutral Diamonds-Printed Sarong ($58 value). Great for a beach or pool cover-up, this multi-functional sarong will pair perfectly with any swimsuit.

I am also loving the patriotic NCLA Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer (value $16). You can bet my nails this coming weekend will be sparkling in this fun polish. Speaking of fun, how adorable is this Knock Knock Are you Ready (For Your Close-Up) Compact (value $10)? Another perfect item to stow away in your beach or travel bag to make sure you are always camera-ready!

Each box is valued at $100- $175, yet costs just $39.95 each month. They also have the Mini Must Have available for $18.95.

Nail Color Picks & Tips For Summer-Ready Toes

Hot Summer Nail Shades

Summer= sandal time which means toenails are now in full view. I tend to stick with fun, bright colors on my toes-- bold corals, punchy bright pinks and pretty peaches, or even something a bit unexpected like teal or metallics, which are super 'in' this season. In addition to a bold color, I like to make sure my feet and nails are looking sandal-worthy. Here's a few tips to make sure those piggies are summer-ready:

Good HUES-Day: Flares & A Crop

Summer Style: Flares & Crop Top
Top: H&M (on sale!) | Flare Jeans: STS Blue (similar style here)| Floppy Hat: H&M | Sandals: Franco Sarto

Happy Good HUES-Day! Hope you all had a fun Father's Day weekend and have been surviving this crazy heat. There is absolutely no doubt that summer is here and it's going to be a hot one... clearly. My parents moved out to the High Desert (or as I refer to it, BFE. Classy, huh?) recently so I took a trek out there to spend the day with them. While there's a lot of dirt and uh, more dirt, I will say that the desert has some of the most gorgeous sunsets.

I picked up this crop top last year at H&M (pssst, it's on sale!) after falling head over heels for the gorgeous lace design.  Click 'read more' to see more of this outfit (along with the pretty sunset!) and to join this week's Good HUES-Day Linkup!

Strobing 101: Best Highlighters for the Best Glow

Strobing 101: Best Highlighters for the Best Glow

Highlighters have been having a serious moment and being the highlighter junkie that I am, I couldn't be more thrilled. While beauty trends, much like fashion trends, can come and go, I think strobing is around to stay. At least for awhile. There are so many unique and gorgeous highlighters out that you can use to get the strobing look, not to mention so many different types of formulas from liquids to powders. So many in fact that it can be challenging to figure out what really is the best and how to best use them.

Luckily I'm here to break it all down for you. Keep reading to get the low down on my must-have highlighters to get the best glow>>

5 Tips for Summer-Ready Glowing Skin

5 Tips for Summer-Ready Glowing Skin

Earlier this week I started thinking about some fun summer things I wanted to do-- go to the beach, camping, upcoming trips, BBQs- and then I realized something. A hits-you-like-a-ton-of-bricks realization. My skin is so not summer ready.

Once that realization set in, I figured the same would be for many of you, especially those of us who are cooped up in offices all day. Below are my top 5 tips for getting summer-ready glowing skin:

Good HUES-Day: Late Spring Work Look


Complaining typically comes with a big move, first there's packing, then unpacking, not to mention the move itself is always pretty stressful. Even though our moving day was 2,000-degrees out, I think we kept our cool. Not literally. The only thing I can really complain about is all the bruises I wound up with on my legs. I'm one of those people that are constantly running into things-- tables, boxes, chairs, you name it, I hit it.

Hence pants pretty much 24/7, or at least 5-days a week while at work. In late spring. Which is basically already summer here in SoCal.  Keep reading to join this week's Good HUES-Day linkup...

Makeup Monday: ColourPop Cosmetics Review

ColourPop Cosmetics Review

If you’re even slightly interested in indie-beauty, you’ve probably heard the buzz about Los Angeles-based ColourPop Cosmetics, the brand known for shockingly pigmented shadows and awesome colorful matte lips. Speaking of lips, word on the street is that their sister company produces the Kylie Lip Kits. I recently picked up a bunch of ColourPop products to test out, keep reading to find out if I’m totally digging this line or not so much…

How-To Live Without The Internet

How To Live Without the Internet

Hey all- I'm back! It's been a rough past few weeks (check out my last post to get the 411 on what's been going on) and I just had to step away to get myself in a better place mentally. I didn't think it would be fair to my readers if my heart wasn't in it, but I'm happy and excited to get A Good Hue back on track with fresh content, ideas and inspiration.

On top of everything going on family-wise, we also had the stress of packing up and moving (and then unpacking) a week ago. We're getting settled in and we're super excited to be out of the apartment and in a much bigger place (no stairs!) but there is one problem... NO INTERNET.

I know, I know...I don't know how we're surviving either. No internet means no blogs. No Netflix. No Housewives. Okay, I'm not that devastated, I may or may not even be writing this from a nearby Starbucks, drink in hand. So what have I been doing without The 'Net?
