Summer Camp Jewelry Trend Guidebook

Summer Camp Jewelry Trend

Okay campers, rise and shine. It’s time to swap out your everyday silver and gold jewelry for vibrant, fun and kitschy options that can withstand a dip in the water and ample sunscreen.

This summer I have created a nifty guidebook to introduce you to the season’s must-have jewelry and sunscreen. From beaded bracelets to stringy anklets and alphabet necklaces, the “Summer Camp” jewelry trend is EVERYTHING right now.

Spotted on celebs and all over your Instagram feed, this trend brings back all the retro feel-good vibes of childhood summer camp.

Packed full of the nostalgia from those simple sunny days of braiding rope friendship bracelets, exploring remote wooded areas, telling ghost stories and crushing on the camp counselors- it’s not only chic but also a mood booster!

Easy to style, playful and laid back (in the best way). You can rock them with just about anything, for any summer activity, without the worry of damaging them.


Since we are besties I wanted to help bring this happy-go-lucky optimistic energy into your wardrobe.  I gathered some of my favorite Summer Camp Jewelry from Kendra Scott at Fashion Show Las Vegas and paired them with my favorite SPF must-haves from Neiman Marcus at Fashion Show Las Vegas to create the perfect bunkmates.

What’s summer camp without sunscreen and friendship bracelets? Just relax by the lake and create some joy.

I Tried Lip Lab By BITE and Totally Geeked Out

The Lip Lab by BITE

Have you ever been so excited about something that you totally geeked out, I mean completely and totally nerded out over it?  Well, that was me this week as I walked into the brand new Lip Lab by BITE at Fashion Show.

Here’s a little back story… I am a BIG fan of lipstick. There is just something about lipstick that can turn your whole day (and look) around. I am also a BIG fan specifically of BITE’s Lipsticks, if they aren’t on your radar yet prepare to fall in love.

BITE was born with a singular idea: create a lipstick that is remarkably different. They use good-enough-to-eat all natural ingredients like fruit and vegetable extracts and pigments making them a fantastic cruelty free, clean, plant based company. Equally as awesome as what’s in their products is what’s NOT in their products!  NO parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates and all products are gluten-free.

Susanne Langmuir, the founder and driving force behind BITE believes “You eat what you put on your lips, so lipstick should be good for you”!

Lip Lab takes BITE one step further into the arena of Bespoke Beauty.

At Lip Lab you create your own lipstick!  Yes that’s right, from shade to finish, scent and even the name!  What you create is totally unique to you!

Lip Lab by BITE features the brand’s state-of-the-art rapid heating and cooling technologies, as well as high-speed centrifuges to blend each artisanal creation 2,500 times in 5 seconds – all to achieve the perfect lipstick in both performance and feel.  The lipsticks are made while you wait and you leave the lab with your creation.

The process begins with designing a shade.

You can choose from classic lipstick color families (nude, pink, red) or something edgier, like blue or black.

Next, customers can select a finish: matte, satin, sheer or a sparkly finish that Bite dubs “luminous.” Then add a flavor — choose from fruity, floral or fresh.

Your Lip Lab artist will then custom blend a few different options in the desired shade range for you to try on so that you can find your perfect custom colour.


Once you have your shade perfected the artist will create your bespoke lipstick. I made two, an orangey-red for everyday and a pink-red for the holidays.


Next, your formula is measured out, heated and blended in the high-speed centrifuge before it is poured into a mold.

Once in the mold, it is placed on the cooling deck to set.

When cool it is removed from the mold and placed in a tube.

And finally, you “name it and engrave it,” stamping your custom lippy with the moniker of your choice.

I went with “Skinny Marg” for my lime flavored orangey-red shade and “Santa’s Comin’ to Town” for my mint flavored pink-red.

Bite will keep your “recipe” on file and can mix it up again on demand.

This was such a fun process- I could have stayed there all day mixing shades like a mad makeup scientist!

I highly recommend you try it for yourself- I mean who doesn’t want their own bespoke lipstick that they get to name!
