8 Summer Items Picked By A Beauty Founder


When it came to making a list of my favorite items for the season, I’ll be honest, I was stumped. There are so many great summer items I could fill endless tote bags, but in reality there are five to ten that we all need in our lives. As I searched for the perfect things to take with me on vacation and incorporate into my daily life, I enlisted the advice of an influencer, podcast host and co-founder of Summer Fridays Marianna Hewitt. I’m a fan of Hewitt and have followed her on Instagram for a while now and remember when she started her first beauty business.

Hewitt’s business savvy mixed with her super-chic fashion sense and mental Rolodex of all the best skincare and beauty products made her the perfect person to ask to share her favorites. When Hewitt and I started chatting, we talked about all things summer, from the vacations we take to what we’ll be wearing all season, and the new beauty products I have to buy like yesterday. On the subject of travel, I asked Hewitt what travel plans she was most looking forward to. “I’m looking forward to my next summer vacation. I have a work trip planned to Paris in July, and I’m going to go there a few days before to take a little vacation for myself. I’m really excited. I think I’m going to St. Tropez for a few days,” she told me. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see all the summer European content that Hewitt will be blessing our IG streams with. I myself am planning a trip to Europe this summer and will definitely take notes from her.

She continued, “I am also going to Aspen this summer. I’ve always been to Aspen in the winter, but the last time I went everyone was saying how amazing it was in the spring or summer. I can’t wait to see what it’s like in the summer. I know there is horseback riding, biking and hiking so I am looking forward to an adventurous summer vacation. I like it for her. I have lots of family in Colorado and have been visiting for years in the summer and winter, and Aspen in the summer is as good as it sounds – another trip I look forward to following via Hewitt’s social media.
