Cabo

For the first unofficial Summer Friday of the season, I spent my day Out Of Office (ok well not really, thanks to wifi) in Cabo. I am so happy I got to spend the long weekend here and wanted to share some links to what I wore or links to similar items.

I stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Pedregal and it was so nice to be able to come back to this property, my room was perfect with it’s own little pool and beach chairs so I didn’t even need to leave my own space.

Summer Skin

We officially have body products and I couldn’t be happier about it. When I take care of my skin, it isn’t just the skincare on my face — it also extends to my body. If you’ve followed me for awhile, you probably have heard me speak about the sensitive skin I have on my body. I always have to be pretty particular with what I put on my skin, I use fragrance free laundry detergent and plain old dove soap. I always had such a hard time with body lotion because how my skin would react – so when we formulated this product I wanted something that worked for my skin, smelled delicious without irritating, and hydrated without sticking to my clothes and that is how Summer Fridays Summer skin nourishing body lotion was born. It is available now at SummerFridays.com and Sephora

Summer Skin

Packed with plant-derived butters and oils, its non-greasy formula instantly melts into the skin for all-day hydration, while replenishing ceramides deliver a lasting baby-soft feel. 

It is:

  • vegan and cruelty-free
  • lightly fragranced with our signature summer scent of coconut, vanilla blossom and warm almond
  • fast absorbing

Reviews

“Obsessed is an understatement!!! This body lotion smells just like summer and feels so hydrating but not sticky at all – another summer fridays phenomenal product. I can’t get enough and honestly the scent may be my fave ever!!!”

“Summer Fridays never disappoints and their new lotion is no exception. First off, the smell is DIVINE and actually smells like summer in a tube. The coconut-vanilla scent makes me want to go somewhere tropical stat. In terms of moisturizing, this definitely does the trick. My hands have been extremely dry and flaky because I’m washing and sanitizing them so often. We invest so much in our face, and often times our hands and body go unnoticed so I’m so glad to have a reason to start a full-body routine. I will purchase this again and again”

“Such a lightweight hydrating lotion! Melts into your skin effortlessly .. doesn’t leave a sticky tacky film! Makes your skin feel super smooth. It’s also scented (a coconut/vanilla) that reminds you of a summer day! Smells good and keeps you hydrated all day long!”

Guest of a Wedding

Wedding season is here and this year is much busier than usual with rescheduled ceremonies. I have gotten so many requests for what to wear to weddings this year and wanted to share a few favorites. When it comes to buying a dress to wear to a wedding, I like to buy a dress I will actually wear again so it doesn’t get worn once then sit in my closet for years to come. There are a few different types of ceremonies you may attend, so here are some picks depending on which celebration you may go to.

Little Black Dress

Formal

Casual, Daytime or Destination

Valentine’s Day Wish List

Valentine’s Day is coming up — if you’re buying a gift for yourself, your BFF or want to drop a hint to your partner … here are some ideas of gifts that I would want for myself.

Summer Fridays Cloud Dew

Obviously our new moisturizer is on the list, not only is it a great moisturizer for all skin types – but the pink packaging is extra cute for this holiday.

Dyson Hair Airwrap

We all know how much I love this hair tool. I literally cannot do my hair without it and there are endless ways to use it. It is a pricy gift, but it is something you will use over and over again and also protect your hair from heat damage in the process.

Slip Silk Hair Ties

I wear the skinny hair ties and the scrunchies all the time — I love them because they are gentle on my hair and my hair doesn’t snag on them. I leave these all over my bathroom, bedroom and any area of the house so if I need to tie up my hair without leaving a crease — I’ve got one handy.

Jewelry

I love jewelry because they are gifts I can wear over and over again and hold so much sentimental meaning. There are so many incredible brands who create special pieces that are perfect no matter what you are wearing — I love to dress up my sweats at home with accessories so I feel a little more put together. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite styles.

Prada Re-Edition 2000 Nylon Mini Bag in Pink

This bag is just too cute! I have it in three colors and I may just need to add one more to the rotation. They go with everything and surprisingly fit so much! I also have it in black, tan and blue — but no matter which color you get it is for sure a great gift.

Amina Muaddi Shoes

It doesn’t matter which style you pick, they are all too good. You can wear them for your at home date night and save them for a later date – no matter where you wear them, they are just the best. I have so many styles and they are so comfortable, sexy and cool.

What To Wear

Now that you have a few gift ideas — what to wear? Here are a few things to pick from no matter what your Valentine’s Day may look like. From a casual day date to a cozy dinner at home.

Gifts For Him

And incase you need a few ideas of gifts for him, here are a few to pick from.

Knit Sets

New year, same outfits. Knit sets are on repeat in my wardrobe as I still want to be comfy in my WFH outfits while still being somewhat presentable on zoom. These sets are perfect to wear to lounge at home and still look put together enough if you have to run out of the house.

The set below is from Aimee Song’s brand, Song of Style available on REVOLVE. It also comes in this really pretty blue color, both with matching socks.

Summer Fridays Cloud Dew

I feel like this product has been long awaited so I’m so glad to finally share that it is here! From the start of Summer Fridays, we have been all about hydration with our first baby – jet lag mask.

We always were looking for more hydration in our skin and moisturizer is one step I could never skip in my skincare routine. I’ve been using our jet lag mask as a moisturizer for many years now, but sometimes I needed a different level of hydration or a different product to add in my routine depending on the season, what makeup I was wearing or how dry my skin was.

And thats how Cloud Dew was born! Our oil-free and fragrance-free formula is the most plush gel cream texture. In a review posted from Nylon, Tanish Pina wrote,

“The near-weightless, serum-like feel of this gel cream instantly soothed my skin without feeling slippy or greasy. It leaves my skin looking dewy and plump, and retains that feeling throughout the day.” 

Here’s how I use it in my morning skincare routine:

A few of the key ingredients in this formula include:

  • HYALURONIC ACID COMPLEX Three types of hyaluronic acid molecules penetrate skin’s surface on multiple levels for long lasting, line-plumping hydration.
  • GLYCERIN A natural humectant that helps attract water and helps strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier for more hydrated skin all day long
  • AMINO ACIDS These natural building blocks of healthy skin help provide antioxidant protection and support skin’s strength and resilience.
  • PINEAPPLE ENZYME Rich in vitamins E and C, this natural exfoliant gently smoothes, softens and reveals brighter, more even-toned skin.

Cloud Dew is available NOW at SummerFridays.com + Sephora.com, coming soon to stores and more retailers.

Goal Planning + Vision Board

If you’ve followed me for a long time, you’ve probably seen how consistent this topic is in my life. Each year towards the end of December, I start working on my vision board for the upcoming year.

Tucked away in a room at home I still keep all the past years boards and it is so gratifying to look at the past and see what I was able to accomplish, what I am still working towards or how my goals have changed.

I recorded my first solo episode for my podcast all about goal planning and how I make my vision board that you can listen to here — and please subscribe to my podcast if you haven’t yet! It’s free and I have new episodes every Tuesday that I hope inspire you.

Podcast Episode

To go along with this week’s episode, I’ve created two free printables that you can use while you think through your 2021 goals and create your vision board.

Goal Worksheet

For the goal setting sheet, you’ll write your end goal at the top of the sheet then write the steps backwards it takes to get there. This will help so that the big goal doesn’t seem so overwhelming and you can start to work towards your goal in mini steps.

Vision Board Planner

The vision board is something you will create, but I share in the episode how I like to write a list of actionable items or specific things to have on the back of my board. You can print this sheet to go along with your vision board and remember to check in during the year and make sure you are on track.

How To Print

  • On a desktop computer, click on the link for the printable
  • They will open in a new window
  • Drag the file to your desktop or right click / control click and “save image”
  • Open the saved image, then print and select “scale to fit” to fill the page when printing

I hope that these sheets + the episode will help you with your 2021 goals and to visualize the life you desire. Best of luck and have a safe and Happy New Year!

Xo, Marianna

Love Languages Gift Ideas

I’m a big believer in Love Languages. Learning what your giving and receiving Love Languages are can really help improve the way you interact with all your loved ones — especially when it’s time to shop for gifts around the holiday season. Not only do they help you shop for other people, but knowing yours also helps other people shop for you. (And when it’s not the holiday season, Love Languages really help inform how you communicate in every interpersonal relationship.)

There are five Love Languages:

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Physical Touch
  • Gift Giving
  • Quality Time
  • and Acts of Service

Words of Affirmation are positive words that can be written or spoken. Physical Touch can be hugs or any romantic or physical intimacy. Gifts can be anything, but they’re usually something tangible. Quality Time means “good” time spent together, uninterrupted and undistracted. And finally, Acts of Service are things you can do for the person.

As you get your last-minute holiday shopping done, here are some gift ideas based on the different Love Languages and if you don’t know what yours is, you can take a free quiz here.

Words of Affirmation

People whose receiving Love Language is Words of Affirmation like gifts where words are at the forefront. While a gorgeous piece of jewelry will make them smile, it’ll be an even more meaningful gift if it’s accompanied with a handwritten card. Invest in personalized stationary or ornate greeting cards to show your loved one how much you care about them.

Physical Touch

Physical Touch is a little harder to present in a tangible, gift-able way, but your loved one might like a massage or facial. You won’t be able to personally perform the service, but they’ll be thinking of you while they indulge in a bit a of self-care. (Keep in mind that a lot of places are still closed due to COVID, so make sure the gift certificate is valid for at least six months.)

Gift Giving

This is probably the easiest one as you get your shopping done! All you need to do is get your hands on your loved ones’ wishlists. People whose receiving Love Language is Gifts usually like more elaborate packages, so keep that in mind as you shop. (A gift card might not cut it for these people — make the gift really personal!)

Shop my gift guides here and shop small here

Quality Time

If your loved one wants Quality Time with you, that means they want your undivided attention. No phones, no distractions — just one-on-one time when the two of you can really bond and catch up. Take them on a small road trip, staycation, or weekend getaway when the two of you can really devote some time to your relationship. You can also buy an activity that you can spend time doing together … phone free

Acts of Service

Acts of Service is another type of gift that’s difficult to present in a tangible way, but offer to do things that are meaningful to them. You can cook a meal, help clean their place, or offer to babysit or pet-sit. Be mindful of activities that require you to be in a close vicinity because of COVID, but if you’re already in each others’ pods, then that’s one less thing to worry about.
