So when it comes to makeup, I am super minimalistic. Shocker, I know. But especially in summer, I’m all about products that are lightweight and give a natural glow. Below I’m sharing what’s in my makeup bag this summer. Scroll down to see them all and as always click the links to shop 🙂
What’s in my makeup bag this summer
1.) Tula Sunscreen – SPF 30, non greasy and leaves a little glow on your skin so you can wear alone or under your makeup. This was named the best SPF by 2020 Beauty Awards. Use my code OURTINYNEST at checkout on Tula.com.
2.) Tarte Shape Tape – I know there’s much controversy about shape tape but the ultra creamy wears better! This one has a 24 hr eye moisturizer built in and I feel like gives better coverage.
3.) Tula Primer – It’s called face filter for a reason! This primer is so light, won’t clog your pores and contains pigments to illuminate your skin.
4.) Bronzer – I have been wearing this for a few years now.
5.) Blush/highlighter – I love this blush/highlighter combo by Flower cosmetics. It’s vegan and cruelty free too!
6.) Benefit Roller Lash – I have the world’s shortest eyelashes and this mascara lengthens them and gives them a nice curl.
7.) NYX Fortune Cookie – This is my absolute favorite lip gloss! Smooth, cruelty free and the shade is so neutral it’s gorgeous!
My other favorite color for summer is this one by Lune & Aster. The shade I got is “Poet”.
8.) Tula glow and get it – this is perfect for under your eyes and those cheekbones! Cools and brightens and gives you an instant pick me up. Use my code OURTINYNEST at checkout on Tula.com.
9.) OPI Cajun Shrimp – this is THE color for summer! It’s a pretty shade of orangey-red.

Nesting on this heatwave of a weekend in May.
Oh it has been a hot minute since I did one of these hasn’t it? We’ve been busy with the kid’s sports, yard work, and other have to’s.
1.) And if I’m being honest, I’ve been so wrapped up in the Johnny Depp trial that it has been consuming me. Who else has gone down that rabbit hole?
The other thing I’ve been watching when it’s not the J.D. trial is “The Staircase” on HBO. It’s based on the true crime and you can watch the documentary on Netflix as well. (If you’re a true crime junkie like me, click here to see some of my favorite True Crime docs).
2.) I’m finally getting my garden planted this weekend. Better late than never 🙂
We have to transplant our peonies so if anyone has any tips send them my way.
3.) I have been obsessed with this coffee concoction lately. It was inspired by the new chocolate cold foam cold brew at Starbucks but I like my version better. Click here to see how to make it!
4.) Did you guys see the dress that I recently got from Amazon? I call it my “art teacher chic” look. It’s so comfortable, is loose fitting and has pockets! I’m all about the comfort and coastal grandmother style this summer!
5.) Yesterday on the blog, I shared this week’s Friday Favorites. Click here to see them all!
6.) And introducing Happy Hour Fridays! Come on over to Instagram every Friday evening for Happy Hour to check out the week’s cocktail and come celebrate your week’s wins or just vent. (If you’re not following me on Instagram, click here!) This week’s cocktail was Lilac lemonade with prosecco. Click here for my lilac lemonade recipe and add some prosecco!
And now time to share some of my favorite things I found this week on the interweb.
I’m obsessed with this adorable DIY denim and lace flag from Cindy at DIY Beautify.
This idea from my friend Addy from Two Little Taylors is the sweetest for your kids for the end of the school year. I literally had tears in my eyes.
Or this one from Dana at House of Goldies.
How delish do these lemon blondies look from Rachelle at My Hubbard Home? Need to make these stat.
Hope your weekend is beautiful and you stay cool!

Coastal Grandmother Style is the new trend for this summer and I am here for it. Think Diane Keaton on “Something’s Gotta Give” or Meryl Streep in “It’s Complicated”- breezy whites and linens, perusing the farmer’s market then coming home and cooking dinner with your local produce in your open kitchen while enjoying a glass of wine.
I have been in love with the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic since I was little and saw Father of the Bride. I dreamt of living in that house and having a kitchen with my pots and pans hanging from the kitchen ceiling. Which is why whenever I’m cooking I listen to Nancy Meyers Kitchen on spotify.
Coastal grandmother is a feeling of carefree relaxation and being effortlessly put together. It’s being the ultimate hostess, having a bowl of lemons on your kitchen counter, making a delicious meal and having vases of fresh hydrangeas from your garden.
Check out some of my favorites below if you want to exude
Coastal Grandmother Chic this summer.
Hat – for the beach, in the garden, or strolling the farmer’s market.
Button down tunic – in white of course.
Linen blend pants – effortless and comfortable.
LL bean bag – I’ve had mine for years and it’s great quality!
Sweater – for layering and in a preppy nautical stripe or solid.
Classic flats – when you’re not barefoot strolling the beach.
