ANDREA BROKAMP is the co-founder of Coastal City Goods (@ coastalcitygoods) and a mother-to-be (due late January). She and her husband live in Ocean Springs and came to the Coast in 2018 for her husband’s training at Keesler Air Force Base.
Originally from the Carolinas, Andrea fell in love with the coastal lifestyle and was inspired to start Coastal City Goods, an online premium gift and apparel company with products that showcase the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Here, she shares the beauty products she’s currently loving:
YOUNG LIVING LAVENDER MINT DAILY SHAMPOO
I have used this natural shampoo throughout my pregnancy to help keep my scalp and hair moisturized, especially during winter.
BUFF CITY SOAP WHIPPED BODY BUTTER
During my pregnancy, I have used this body butter every night before bed to moisturize my growing belly. The scent, oatmeal honey, is beyond amazing. I love that I get to support a local Ocean Springs business, too! These body butters make great gifts.
I use the color “rouge pur coutoure,” a vibrant berry hue that goes with almost any outfit. This lipstick is long lasting and feels nice on your lips.
GIMME BEAUTY SCRUNCHIES
These velvet scrunchies hold my thick hair well and don’t leave a crease.
OLIVE & JUNE NAIL POLISH
I have enjoyed using this innovative, at-home nail polish kit for do-it-yourself manicures, especially during these COVID times. The Olive & June system includes six polishes, cuticle serum, polish remover, a buffer, clippers, a nail file and a super glossy topcoat.
LULULEMON MAKEUP BAG
A stylish, yet durable and functional, makeup bag that fits all my compacts, makeup brushes and then some.
COASTAL CITY GOODS T-SHIRT
The softest tee for sleeping or pairing with some comfy leggings. This color is so pretty and looks good on everyone.
I first discovered this perfume in a shop in downtown New Orleans, and then I received it from my husband as an anniversary gift. The scent is to die for — sexy and sophisticated. It comes in a stylish perfume box and spray container, too.
GARMIN VIVOMOVE HR HYBRID SMARTWATCH
I always wear a watch, but I need something sophisticated, yet functional. This watch is the perfect combination to help me stay fashionably fit. It has a discreet digital display to alert me to calls and texts but also classic hands for a professional look with rose gold features. It also tracks your steps and monitors your heart rate, among other smart features.
L’OCCITANE SHEA BUTTER LIP BALM
If you buy nothing else in the L’Occitane shop, buy this lip balm. During the winter months, I am always using it to keep my dried lips feeling moisturized and smooth.
