There are so many fabulous IT bags under $500 this summer 2021 season! It is so nice to know we don’t have to break the bank in order to afford a beautiful IT bag which will definitely turn heads this summer season. Love that!

This beautiful straw tote bag is priced just under $500, and it’s an IT bag which is hot this summer season, and has been hot for several years now; it may already qualify for classic IT bag status! It really is a great investment bag!

Also, as you already know, pouches are hotter than hot right now, and these two are priced nicely at under $500. I own the yellow one and love wearing it often. It fits everything I need it to fit while being comfortable to wear; plus it’s super soft. Love that!

Do you see that cute little tan hobo in the collage above? I am in love! This bag is on my wish list. I am in love with it’s east/west, slouchy silhouette, and it’s ’90’s era strap. Plus, the color is on point for the summer season, and early fall. Love!

Summer skin care for summer 2021 from top left: neck cream / face cream / eye cream / body butter / lip sunscreen / body wash / hand cream / facial sunscreen / body sunscreen / body scrub /

It’s time for summer skin care! In addition to my go-to neck cream, face cream, and eye cream, I like to add sunscreen to my summer skin care routine. Of course, sunscreen is something to think about all year long; especially in sunny places like California! That being said, I use heavier sunscreen in the summer months due to all my outdoor activities.

Sunscreen and facial creams are important, but it is equally important to care for your body skin too! I love this hand cream from Colleen Rothschild. It isn’t greasy and works like a charm. I also love her body wash, body scrub, and body butter. These are holy grail body skin care products. Love them!
