Ellen's Summer Selects
I've always loved Fresh products, but I came across this scent on a fateful beauty closet clean-out day at the magazine where I was interning. It's citrusy, light, and perfect for summer. It also happens to be my favorite scent ever.

Anyone who knows me knows that I worship at the altar of Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen. They also probably know that I'm perennially on the hunt for a pair of stylish shades that will fit my face shape (it's square, FYI), won't break the bank, and won't fall apart either. I think these might be the ones.

I'm all about a good arm party, and mine has been sorely lacking in new additions lately. That's unacceptable, so it's about time I invest in a statement cuff like this one, which I've had my eye had on for awhile now.

Ethnic prints, pom-poms, and tassels are all essential components of my personal style, and life in general. My impulse purchase of this clutch was a no-brainer, and we've been very happy together.

I suffer from dark under-eye circles, and this pen is my secret weapon in correcting them. The formula brightens and conceals with one swipe, which is perfect for me, because I also suffer from lack of coordination.

I used to be a Converse girl, but daily exposure to fashion editors and a moment of weakness in a Soho shoe emporium have since proved otherwise. The Italian sales guy told me these looked more "high profile" than my trusty ol' Chuck Taylors, and I can agree with that.

This is Oprah's favorite kind of lipstick, and by no coincidence, it's mine too. My preferred shade is Blush Nude, and the creamy formula is both moisturizing and long-wearing.

I live and die for this thing. Maybe that sounds dramatic when we're talking about a face brush, but this little machine will change your life - and skincare routine. I think the only thing that would make mine better woud be if it was turquoise, like this guy.

I live in denim cutoffs during the summer, and I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect black pair. These distressed cutoffs are exactly what I've had in mind.

My personal style is pretty eclectic. I'm drawn to bohemian-inspired styles and ethnic prints, but I also like classic, preppy things as well. It's an unlikely combination, but I think if you like something, you can make it work. Currently, my wardrobe is an explosion of tassels and pom-poms, and my favorite piece is an ethnic print statement clutch that incorporates both of these elements. It's the ultimate grab-and-go piece that pulls together even the most boring of white tee and jeans combinations.

For me, beauty and fashion are synonymous, and I hoard beauty products in the same way that I hoard shoes -- in a pile under my desk. I'm attracted to products with beautiful packaging, but I also love stuff that works, so a drugstore lip balm is just as valuable to me as an expensive lipstick from the beauty counter at Bergdorf's.
