Happy First Day of Summer ☀️

Hey Guys! 

I know, its been a minute since I've done a blog post, I'm so sorry I have been MIA! For those of you who don't know, I have been going through a pretty heart wrenching break up, which has been really hard on me both physically and mentally. I hope to be able to share more of my story with you all as my heart heals. But for today, I thought we should talk about summer, after all, it is the official first day of summer 2018! Happy summer solstice everyone! ☀️

Summer is the perfect time to take a little break from life and "reset" and that's absolutely what I intend to do! 🙌🏻 Last night I wrote out my "Summer 2018 Agenda", some of the items on my list included: nurturing my mind, body and soul 💆🏼, continuing to build beautiful friendships 👯, experience new places/things 🌎 and gear up for St. Raine's fall collection! ✨ 

Below you will find some of my favorite summer essentials, hope you enjoy...and I will talk to you guys soon! 😘



My @CostaKini hat is the first item I wanted to share with you guys. My girlfriend, @kendrabeth made it for me for my birthday trip to the Bahamas and I hardly took it off, the entire time I was there! 

To purchase or check out more of her custom items: CostaKini


The next item I wanted to share with you guys is this luggage set I picked up from Amazon! It comes with 3 hard shell suitcases, for $139 AND you can get it in just two days with Amazon Prime! I purchased them in gold but they come in a variety of different colors. ðŸ’ðŸ¼

As for swimsuits...If your like me and you like to take a photo in your swimmy and then you won't wear it again all summer long, this post is for you! ðŸ˜œ Ok, so here it is...my swimsuit hack and one of my holly grail/life hacks to my love for inexpensive bikinis! 👙

So this might not be a secret to some of you but for those of you who don't know about Zaful I figured I would share. After all, everyone should be able to have the cutest swimsuits for about $12 right!?! 😉 They also currently have a buy 2 get one free offer going on! 

I do have to say, the clothes on this website aren't the best quality but as far as swimsuits go these should do the trick for all your IG pic needs. ðŸ˜œ

I think they might come from China so sometimes the sizing can be off. I pretty much always get a medium or large because you know we don't want any muffin tops in our bikinis ladies! 😉

Below are some of the ones I have ordered, hope you guys enjoy this little money saving tip! 


My favorite sunnies this summer are these Gucci sunglasses. They are a little pricey but I have already gotten so much wear out of them! They are a great twist on the original square Gucci tortoiseshell sunglasses but these are a little extra (like me 😜) with the hot pink glitter on the sides. 💖


and I saved the best for last...I know you guys have heard me talking about my bestie, @blondieonthego sunless tanning line @soleilorganicsoffical but it is absolutely a summer necessity! You know we gotta keep our summer glow on without the harmful UV rays! â˜€ï¸ 

Soleil Organics is a luxurious sunless tanning and skincare line. Their products are made of up to 99% organic, natural and naturally derived ingredients that are designed to hydrate, improve skin tone, and provide a beautiful sunless tan! My favorite one is the "Radiant Finish" since it has a little shimmer to it! Blondie and her team have worked so hard to deliver their customers beautiful color with added benefits and I couldn't be more proud of her and all her hard work! You guys have to try it out! Oh, and use promo code: STRAINEJEWELRY for $ off. ðŸ˜˜

One tip I will give you guys is to buy the applicator mit! You don't want your hands being a different color than your body and the mit really helps ensure that won't happen! 

That's all I have for you guys for now, love you and hope you have a fabulous day and beginning of Summer 18 💋.
