So Memorial Day has come and gone, so that means that summer is here, unofficially!!!!

Y’all know that summer is my absolutely favourite time of year.  Hot, humid, bright….that’s all me!!!!  I love wearing bright colours, soft fabrics like linen, the beach weather, I’m a true Caribbean girl!!!

Enough about me!

So this Memorial weekend had the best weather that I could remember in a while!!! NYC was just sunny and warm.  I hung out with a great friend of mine, Jackie.  She is the founder and author of CooklikeJackie.com.  She’s a foodie and enjoys the art of cooking, dining and everything involved with making food amazing!!!! You like cooking gadgets? Find some great reviews here.

So Jackie asked me to help her pick some colours to wear to break out of her no-colour phase.  I suggested OPI‘s Hot & Spicy from Hong Kong Collection.  She’s about NC 35 or so (I’m purely guessing!) and I think that that colour would look great on anyone with bronzey skin!!! Especially paired with summer whites!

It just says SUMMER! Be sure to check out this colour!!!

Close up colour! A bright cantaloupe colour!

You can find this collection at your local retailer, like Ricky’s or ULTA or e-tailers like transdesign.com
