GUEST POST: Her Late Night Cravings (Top Pick Thursdays – The Beauty Edition)

Morning dolls! So excited about today's guest post.  I met Jayme and Mendi a few months ago and we quickly formed this crazily close BFF relationship via blogging.  I have told them MANY times, but I'll say it again - I think they were my bff's from another life.  Wish they lived closer to TX!  I tune into their blog DAILY to read up on the LATEST and GREATEST "cravings," especially their great beauty tips. So, with the summer here, I hit them up for THEIR top picks for this season.  Here's what they had to say.  I can't wait to try that anti-frizz cream on my new hairstyle and the new Jennifer Aniston perfume! PLEASE check out their awesome blog HERE if you haven't already!  These ladies are sooo wonderful!


Hello from Richmond, VA!  This is Jayme and Mendi from Her Late Night Cravings and we are thrilled to be guest posting for our favorite blogger, Ms. La-La Linh.  Every time we see or say Linh’s name we can’t help but smile and think POSITIVITUDE.  Her “Top Pick Thursdays” posts are some of our favorites and they never fail to leave us with many fashion cravings…in fact, we are still dreaming about the ChristianLouboutin Electric Blue Block Platforms…ahhhhhhh.

If you aren’t familiar with Her Late Night Cravings then please allow us to introduce ourselves. We have a love for everything from fashion to beauty products to home décor to travel and much much more.  We blog about those loves and all about our “late night cravings.”  And while our blog is filled with a variety of topics we do have a special place in our hearts for all things beauty-related which leads us to “Top Pick Thursdays – The Beauty Edition.”   The products selected below are TEN Summer Must-Haves – between the two of us; we own all of these products so they are tried and true in our opinion.

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Nourishing Body Wash with NutriumMoisture (prices vary by store)
Origins A Perfect World SPF25 Moisturizer ($39.50)
Philosophy Aloha Girl Body Lotion ($24)
Tan Towel Express Self-Tan ($30)
Fekkai Smooth Sailing Anti-Frizz Cream ($24)

Linh, thank you so much for the opportunity to guest post about a topic on which we are so passionate. We believe that true beauty comes from within and if you feel good on the inside, then why not celebrate it on the outside.

Oh, Linh, you're the best... We're completely blushing over here at HLNC & it isn't because of the warm temps in Virginia right now!

We're getting ready to publish a post on our blog today with a link to our guest post on your site. So, be on the lookout for it soon!

We were SO meant to be friends! This is definitely just the beginning of a beautiful friendship!! We look forward to many MORE opportunities to support each other in the future.

Ok...after work today, I am heading straight to the nearest CVS, Walgreens, or Target to get this nail polish. EVERYONE is raving about it. I think I'll stock up on every color I can find. It's been a while since I splurged :)
