Here at Blossom Lounge we recently received the complete summer collection by One Love Organics. The collection featured four new products 2 for face (Apple a Day Cleanser and Pretty Pores Toner), and 2 for hair and body (Healthy Locks Dry Shampoo and Gardenia Body Serum). We here at Blossom Lounge already knew how much we loved One Love Organics, but Blossom Lady Kaylee had yet to give them a try. After falling for the entire summer collections packaging and scents, she purchased a few more things and is now a complete OLO convert! Read below to see what she uses for her daily face and body routine to keep her feeling loved by One Love Organics.

There could really be nothing better than taking a mini vacay on a hot weekend and heading to the cottage. Spending mornings relaxing on the deck, days hanging on the boat and evenings going into the local town for dinner, are three of the ways you should plan to pack for a jam packed cottage weekend! But just because your weekend is jam packed, doesn't mean your suitcase has to be! Read below to see how to mix and match your suitcase packing only 10 things!
What I packed:
1. Hat- Joe Fresh
2. Sunglasses- Ray Ban Aviators
3. Necklace/Bracelet- Jenny Bird at Blossom Lounge
4. Graphic T-shirt- Sundry at Blossom Lounge
5. Jean Shorts- Mavi at Blossom Lounge
6. T-shirt Dress- Sundry at Blossom Lounge
7. Cross-body Bag- Rebecca Minkoff at Blossom Lounge
8. Graphic Tank Top- Sundry at Blossom Lounge
9. Sweat Pant- Sundry at Blossom Lounge
10. Flat Shoes- Franco Sarto
LOOK 1: ON THE BOAT
When planning on heading out for a day on the boat it is important to stay comfy and protected. Make sure to pack sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses to keep yourself safe from the sun! For your outfit stay chic and comfortable with a classic denim shorts and t-shirt combo. We love this nautical anchor top from Sundry, perfect for a boat day! Keep jewellery basic and summery, and make sure to wear flat shoes...the boat can be slippery!
LOOK 2: OUT TO DINNER
If the cottage you are staying at is within driving distance to the nearest town, we say go explore! You can always find the best little shops and restaurants in the tiniest of towns. Don't get too fussy with your outfit, a simple fitted t-shirt dress, flat shoes, and a great bag will do the trick! For jewellery we used the same Jenny bird necklace and bracelet from the boat, and just doubled up the necklace for a more formal style.
LOOK 3: RELAXING AT THE COTTAGE
Just because you are hanging out at the cottage all morning doesn't mean you should keep your button down flannel pj's on. a comfy look can also be stylish! These light grey sweats with cool dip dye tassels and graphic print tank are perfect for lounging on the deck and sipping lemonade. You can even accessories with the jewellery and cute, comfy shoes!

What could be more luxurious than a gold dipped manicure? Although the name may sound pricy and difficult, it is actually cheaper than a manicure at the salon and so easy! Liquid gold leaf is one of those items that can be used on just about any item, from jewellery to housewares, and of course...nails! So when us here at Blossom Lounge found the perfect shade of blue from Butter London we knew instantly that a little liquid gold glamour would make for the prettiest of summer nail art. Read below to learn how to do this opulent gold mani for yourself and don't forget to check out more Butter London polishes at blossomlounge.com to create endless gold dipped combinations!
1. Butter London "Poole" Nail Polish
3. Nail Polish Remonver
4. Painters Tape
5. Angled Brush
6. Liquid Gold Leaf
Step 1: After shaping and buffing nails to your preferred shape, start by painting nails with a thin coat of nail polish. Three coats of Butter London's Poole nail polish will give you a fully opaque look.
Step 2: Remove any nail polish mistakes by dipping a Q-Tip in some nail polish remover and gently rub it along fingers. Let nails dry completely before moving onto step 3.
Step 3: Using painters tape (scotch tape shown here), tape a diagonal line from the middle top of your nail to the middle bottom. Press firmly on the tape to ensure no liquid gold will bleed.
Step 4: Using a very small amount of liquid gold, gently dab it onto your nails moving slowly and carefully. Allow the gold to dry fully and gently remove the tape. If there are any patches gently fix them using a small ammount of gold.
