Sandals with Support by Earth

I love wearing flip flops during the summer but my feet end up achy from the lack of support. I recently discovered these super comfortable and supportive sandals by Earth. The Earth shoe technology was originated by a Danish Yoga master to naturally align your body. But the arch support and super cushy bottom are what I really love.

Swimwear: Stylish One Pieces

When shopping for swimsuits I usually only consider two pieces. But this years sexy styles have made me re-think my selection. The deep cuts of these necklines are truly just as sexy as any two piece out there and cover a little bit more in the stomach and waist area when you are not prepared to bare all. Scallop Print 1-Piece £30.00 at Topshop and Mainsail Maillot swim suit $198 at Anthropologie.

Unique Engagement Rings

Every soon to be bride wants a unique engagement ring that fits her own personal style. When perusing cabinets of rings I found that many stores carry the same styles, which don't really seem to be unique at all. Here are some new ideas. If you don't usually like to wear flashy jewelry try going with a simple styized band like this one by Catherine M. Zadeh. Another detail that can add something unique is an embellished band like this one from Vera Wang.

And guys, before making an engagement ring purchase, take notice of the type of jewelry your loved one already wears. This will ensure you are searching for rings that match and fit their style.

Summer Hair Cure: Headbands

As the humidity increases, as does my time spent outdoors, I find that my hair turns into an unmanageable mess. But these innovative headband designs keep my locks pulled away from my face and give a fresh look. The first one is the Prima Ballerina Headband and is probably the most simple and the my favorite one. All styles available at Anthropologie.
