It's officially summer! The time of year when short shorts, strappy sandals and dainty jewelry reign supreme and are best complimented by sun-kissed cheeks and bright smiles. In a nod to our favorite season, and in hopes to make your summer a bit sweeter, the #taudsquad wanted to share what we're absolutely loving right now.
Tiffany ("Tiff"), Owner & Designer
Favorite summer beauty product? I'm really into body scrubs lately and my new obsession is the Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub. I've been using it once a week and have noticed a difference in my skin, especially my hands. Thanks BirchBox!

Favorite summer song or summer Netflix binge? Definitely Bloodline.
Favorite summer trend? I can't get enough of off-the-shoulder tops!
Danielle ("D"), Director of Creative & Communications
Favorite summer beauty product? Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air serum tint. The lightweight, far-from-greasy formula offers coverage, but with a no-makeup look. Plus, you get that perfect summer glow. I also can’t live without my Sun Beam bronze highlighter by Benefit.
Favorite summer dish or cocktail? How about a combo? Cold Whispering Angel rose, with chips and mango salsa.
Favorite summer song or summer Netflix binge? The food snob in me is obsessed with Chef's Table.

Favorite taudrey piece for the summer? My favorite is the Five Golden Rings Necklace. It's dainty, but makes a statement.
Favorite summer beauty product? Has to be tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist! The full Rainforest collection is amazing but this multi-use product is a stand out. Use it as a primer under your makeup, spray it on throughout the day to keep your look from fading or spritz while on the beach for the ultimate facial refresher!
Favorite summer dish? I’m no whiz in the kitchen and so my easy and healthy go-to lunch is a kale and quinoa chicken salad. Add some pineapple chunks or strawberries for a taste of summer.
Favorite summer song or summer Netflix binge? Grey’s Anatomy! Yes, I know. I’m pretty late on the Grey’s bandwagon but if you're like me and never started, this 12-season favorite will surely get you through the summer.

Favorite summer beauty product? I'm going with Covergirl's The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara. I stays on all day, no matter how hot it gets, and doesn't smudge.
Favorite summer dish? My fav is a drink, rather than a dish. My frozen strawberry lemonade drink is delicious and oh-so refreshing on a hot summer day. Plus, it's super easy to make. Just toss ice cubes, water and lemonade concentrate into a blender and process until ice is finely blended. Add strawberries and puree until well mixed, and enjoy!
