3.A good book
One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to read more books! So I am adding this onto the summer essentials because I have recently become obsessed with the pastime. I really love books that inspire you to be a better you! Here are some of my top picks that will help you do just that!
  1.  #Girlboss - Sophia Amoruso
  2.  You Are A Badass - Jen Sincero
  3. Settle For More - Megyn Kelly  
  4. A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life - Brian Grazer and Charles Fishman

4.A cute pair of sandals that go with almost every outfit
Okay ladies – let’s be honest for a sec. We all have that one pair of sandals that last us all summer long. Although sometimes that pair ends up being a $2 pair of flip-flops from Old Navy (we have all been there), this year let’s change things up. Check out some of these cute sandals that are on trend, affordable and will last you all summer long!!

5.The PERFECT swimsuit
This is ABSOLUTELY an essential for your summer swag bag! The big trends that are making a splash this summer are the one-piece and extreme peek-a-boo cut out situations. However, I feel like you should choose anything that makes you feel confident and sexy! Here are a few idea to look for when you are shopping this summer!



BONUS: Here are a few other products that I can’t live without during summertime and are TOTALLY worth checking out!

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE RECENT COLLEGE GRADUATE




Dear Recent College Grad,

First things first, CONGRATS! You have just completed a task that many never even set out to do. Although you want to take in the moment and savor the hard work that you just put into the past four years of your life, that may seem hard at first. Everyone around you is focused on anything but that. The only question that anyone can seem to ask you is what you are going to do next (am I right?). I am here to tell you that it is okay to not know - BREATHE! This is such a crucial time for you to really reflect on what you really want for your life and figuring out how to accomplish that in the best way possible. I think that one of the most important things to remember during this time of your life is that YOU make the rules and YOU are the one that gets to create your own destiny. You need to train your brain from the very beginning that you deserve what ever your wildest/crazy dreams are. However, it is also important to understand that while working towards those dreams of yours you WILL have to do some things that are defiantly not on the top of your to-do list. This is what they call "paying your dues". Although this stage of your budding career may seem a little pointless, remember that every single person who has had an amazing career like you WILL have someday had these moments too. Try to take the time to learn something from every experience that you have and make the best out of every situation.


"Be bold enough to use your voice,
Brave enough to listen to your heart,
and strong enough to live the life you always imagined"


I think that college allows you to find your inner bad ass and everything after that is showing everyone else how much of a bad ass you really are. Do not be mistaken however, that convincing others of these bad ass qualities that you have can sometimes be challenging. PLEASE remember in these times that you are not the only one who struggles with this post grad life and NEVER let anyone break your spirit - YOU ARE WORTH YOUR DREAMS. There is not a single person out there that has the right to tell you that you are not good enough, because in the end we are all just people (weird concept, I know)!

The one rule that you must always remember as you now conquer the world is that kindness always wins. No matter what business that you are going into this is one concept that is universal and will always put you ahead - trust me!Kindness, patience and motivation are KEY.

You have made it this far, so you must be doing something right. Believe in yourself and keep kicking ass!

XX,
Priscilla
