Summer is on it’s way! It’s time for flip-flops, shorts, and sunshine. This also means it’s time to get rid of the autumn and winter clothes you’ve been sporting and change them out for brighter, lighter clothes. Whether you’ll be recycling last year’s summer clothing or replacing it with new threads, you can brighten your summer wardrobe and look polished and adorable with summer accessories. Check out some of the tips below.
Cute Summer Sunglasses
A definite must for summer is one or two cute pairs of sunglasses. This is a big trend with celebs, and you can really make your wardrobe pop with the right styles and colors. Aviator sunglasses are in style now, and look great with long, straightened hair and big hoop earrings.
Or, you can go for those huge, celebrity-style sunglasses that make you look like you’re avoiding the paparazzi. Choose a few different pairs in colors that will match your favorite summer outfits or swimsuits, so you can always look polished and put-together.
Make your denim shorts or capri pants really stand out with adorable, large belt buckles. The great thing about using belts and belt buckles as summer accessories is that you can easily dress up any plain jeans and t-shirt outfit. Throw on some strappy sandals and bangle bracelets and you’re ready to go. Or, you can add that belt buckle to a pair of long jeans, a blouse and high-heels for a night out on the town.
There was an official vote not long ago and now it’s practically illegal to do summer without cute tote bags. Find adorable summer tote bags that match your favorite flip-flops or sandals, and you’ll have both a fashion statement and a convenient way to carry everything but the kitchen sink.
These are literally perfect for everything; whether you’re going to spend the day at the library or the beach, a weekend in Miami or grocery shopping with the family. Another great thing about tote bags is that they’re affordable, so you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to look fashionable with tote bags!
Summer Hair Accessories
Finally, you’ll need to think about some cute summer hair accessories. Since it’s so hot, many girls decide to wear their hair up, and this means you need cute doodads to add to your luscious locks. Even a pony tail can look elegant and adorable if you have the right kinds of hair clips. Again, these are super-cheap so you can really stock up and have a different hairstyle and look every day. Purchase several in different colors so you’ll have something for every outfit.
Now that you’re all stocked up on adorable summer accessories, you can look your best as you enjoy all that glorious sunshine!

I read a TON of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, and one of my favorite by far has been Clockwork Angel. If you really enjoy a lot of action and some romance – not too much or too corny – then check out the review below, because you’re in for a treat.
Tessa Gray believes she’s a normal girl, on a trip to meet her brother after her aunt’s tragic death. However, instead of her brother being there, Tessa is met by the ‘Dark Sisters.’ Telling Tessa they’ve been sent by her brother to pick her up, they take Tessa to their home. Here, they reveal to her that she has a special gift, and tell her it’s their job to train her to use this gift. If she’s unable to do what they tell her to do, they will kill her brother.
After a very long time in torturous conditions, Tessa is shocked when she’s rescued by a strange boy, who turns out to be William Herondale. Will is a shadow hunter who investigates downworlders (warlocks, vampires, faeries, etc.) and slays demons. His investigation into a particular death has led him to Tessa. Once Will has Tessa back safe at the Institution (the shadow hunter headquarters), she tells them what she knows and asks for their help in finding her brother.
Tessa also meets James Carstairs (Jem), an odd boy with silver hair and a beautiful, gentle demeanor. But it’s Will’s hot temper, snarky attitude, and hostile words that capture Tessa’s heart. Still, every time she attempts to get close to him, he pushes her away. Why? While investigating her brother and the Dark Sisters, the shadow hunters and Tessa discover a huge plot and while reading, you’ll be quite surprised to find out who is caught up in it.
I couldn’t put this book down and I cannot wait for the next in the series, Clockwork Prince. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story and even more, a great storyteller. Cassandra Clare weaves beautiful metaphors, dark humor, and of course, romance into her story lines with elegance. I’d give this one a definite 9 out of 10!

Looking for a great book to read; one with a little romance, a little adventure, and maybe a little magic? Keep reading to determine if this series is right for you!
The first in the series, Hush, Hush centers on Nora Gray, a typical high schooler…or so she thought. When ‘Patch,’ a pushy, attractive, and obnoxious new guy takes her best friend’s place as her biology partner, Nora isn’t happy. When he flirts with her and makes uncomfortable comments, it’s even worse. Her biology teacher refuses to make a change, though, and when they’re assigned a project where they’re forced to get to know each other, Nora has no choice but to accept the reality. She’s stuck with Patch for a while.
Pretty soon it becomes apparent that Patch has a strange hold on her, and when things start happening that Nora can’t explain, he seems to be the only one to hold the answers. With a series of attacks and the growing feeling that someone is out to get her, Nora is faced with an uncomfortable fact. Either Patch is behind the attacks, or he is the only one who can help her…in any case, he knows something about them.
**SPOILER** As Nora falls more and more for Patch, she discovers a startling secret about him. He’s in her life for a reason, and it’s a nefarious one. As a fallen angel, Patch can receive his wings back if he sacrifices a specific kind of person – and guess what – Nora fits the bill.
Thoughts: I loved this book. Patch is a bad boy, super-hot hero that all the girls will love to love. Nora is completely identifiable as well, and Becca Fitzpatrick creates a world where the stakes are high, especially when it comes to love. What I hated about this book was that it ended…but luckily, I had ‘Crescendo’ waiting for me; the second in the series. Review Below.
In the beginning of Crescendo, Nora is unbelievably happy with Patch. He’s sexy, protective, and strong…and she loves him. She slips up and tells him one night after a date and is met with awkward silence. This is when Patch’s strange behavior starts, including his sketchy visits to Nora’s mortal enemy!
When those visits turn romantic, Nora is understandably LIVID. This is when her mother jumps in and tries to hook her up with a boy from her past, who behaves strangely. Before long, Nora realizes he’s one of the Nephilim and something is going on, but she’s too mad with Patch to pay much attention to anything else.
**SPOILERS** Nora is the focus of another plot, although it’s one she can’t quite figure out. When she receives a mysterious note with a ring and the tip that the ‘Black Hand’ killed her father, she begins to be suspicious of everyone. In fact, the more she investigates, the more it looks like Patch may have been the one who took her dad’s life all those months ago.
As the danger increases and Nora gets closer to the truth, she’s in for a real shocker. I don’t want to spoil the book completely, so I’ll just say that this one has lots of steamy romance and plenty of action.
Thoughts: I loved this one even more than I loved the first, and was surprised a few different times throughout this one. If it’s possible, Patch was even sexier in this one and it was even more heartbreaking. With some serious enemies coming after Nora, it seems like there’s absolutely nowhere to turn!
Overall, both of these books were great. I’d give them a 7 on a scale from 1 to 10, and recommend them to anyone who liked books like Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Vampire Academy Series and The House of Night Series. I personally can’t wait to read Silence, the next in the series.
