Super Six: New looks, new must have products

KellyColumn415Newest815With the 4th of July weekend already behind us (waaaaah!), I suppose I should hop to it and talk about my summer Super Six picks before fall fashion takes over the internet. (Psssst, it’s already happening…but, I’m ignoring it, for now). That being said, here are my latest obsessions:

  1. I have an iPhone 6 but am eligible for an upgrade. Because I have given away all of my previous upgrades to my bratty children, I’m keeping this one for myself. I am considering the 6s Plus NOT because I am old and my eyesight is failing, but because the camera is supposed to be much better. Anyone have it? Do you love it or hate it?July-2016-Super-Six
  2. Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion spray is my latest hair product MUST­HAVE. Available at Houppette on State Street, this amazing formula is a salt and tropical oil concoction designed to create sea­tousled waves. It smells as good as it feels. Apply to damp or dry hair. Check it out : 101 W. State Street, Kennett Square
  3. I live in a brick house with black shutters and a basic, black front door. I’m bored of it. So, I’ve been scouring Pinterest for inspiration and stumbled across a turquoise/teal type color that I’m pretty psyched about. My husband thinks it is a phase…and, he’s probably right. But, it’s just paint and I’m going to go for it. I’ll hate it by December. Guaranteed.
  4. I have, at least, 10 lipsticks in my purse at all times. It’s a little crazy. What is worse is that I am constantly on the hunt for the next best thing. I think I found it! While you are getting your Surf Infusion at Houppette, pick up a Bare Minerals Gen Nude lipstick! This new formulation is ultra­creamy, gluten­free, and imparts stunning color. Ask the Houppette Girls to help you find your best shade. 101 W. State Street, Kennett Square
  5. My love for the fashion at No.109 Shop is deep! One of my favorite designers you can find at the boutique is Rails. You need to try on one of these soft, sexy, button­down plaid tops to know why I’m a fan. Whether you pair it with denim (Mother jeans are my FAV) or a slim, pencil skirt, you’ll look like a million bucks. Stop in and shop : 109 W. State Street.
  6. We are getting ready to escape the Square for a tropical destination! I’m so excited to have an amazing adventure with my family. Of course, I had to find some fun fashions to wear on the beach. But, because I am slathered in sunscreen and a fan of self­tanner, I hate to spend a lot of money on a cover­up. I found this one online at and I looooooove it! You put a tassel on something and it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll buy it. This cover­up was $21, people. TWENTY­ONE. If I get SPF on it, it’s OK. Cute, huh?

Well, there you have it! What are your favorite things this month? Please, share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Happy Weekend!
