Sunless Tanning!:)

Hey!! I haven’t done a post in what feels like FOREVER!! So todays post will be on what my favorite sunless tanning products are:)

Tanning is extremely bad for your skin and even though the tan looks pretty while you have it, your actually causing premature wrinkles and you are also at a higher risk for skin cancer:( If you do choose to tan, which everyone does lol, at least use spf 30 but spf 50 is much better:) Tanning beds are a HUGE no-no!!!

So here are two products that I LOVE to use to get a gorgeous, natural looking tan!

Jergens Natural Glow Lotion

This is a gradual tanning product. The tan progressively builds as you continue to put this on your skin till you have a very natural looking, healthy glow. You can use this product everyday because it is a lotion. I used up a whole tube of this, and I could clearly tell that my skin did look tanner:) Downfalls to this product: it does smell really wierd, not really overpowering, but like an awkward smell…… lol:)

St. Tropez Tanning Mousse

This would definatly be my favorite out of the two, while it is a bit pricey it is SOOO worth it! When you pump this out of the bottle, it foams and looks like a gross brownish green and its kinda really scary. After you put it on and follow the directions and what not, you will get the most gorgeous tan!  Downfalls to this product: none what so ever! I love it!!

***Side note: This is a gradual tanning product as well, but with each use, you get noticably darker where as the jergens it will take a couple uses:)

XOXO!

Spring Fashion 2012

I love the fashions this spring! Everyone trend is very possible to wear everyday without looking overdone, and you can also dress them up! Every picture is from the Spring 2012 Fashion Week:) Hope you all like it!

Here we go…….

Don’t put away all your floral print dresses just yet! Florals are still in style for this spring 2012! At New York Fashion Week, Jason Wu’s Design really caught my eye! I thought that a sheer floral romper was a fun twist! Especially since sheer tops are in too!

For all you tom-boys out there, I’ve got a trend for you as well! I really like this trend because it goes along with my style! I love how you can mix different textures with this trend! Specifically at the Spring fashion week, 3.1 Philip Lim’s take on it really caught my eye! I love the sweatshirt wrapped at the waist and the gray color gradient.

Another trend I think is super cute is the geometric color blocking:) The harsh edges of the shapes make each of the colors stand out against each other. My favorite was by Narciso Rodgriguez because I really like how the shapes and colors guide your eyes across the whole outfit. They put movement into the piece.

Finally, pastels. You all know I love pastels and the trend with pastels. I think my first post I did was on the trend lol:) But pastels are really in every spring because of how they represent little baby ducks and chicks! lol! So I really liked Proenza Schouler’s take on the trend because she incorporated zebra print into the dress!! OMG!! lol:) sad to say but you can’t see the print in this picture:(

Trends also include tribal prints, super bold prints, color blocking in general ect..

How cute are these!!!!!!!!!!!lol

Song Inspired!!! Drive By , by Train

Drive By

This outfit was inspired by a song called Drive By by Train. The song reminds me of like driving and what not so and this is what popped into my head!:)

So first, we have a pair of distressed skinny jeans and a leather jacket to give off that tough chic vibe.  Then to make this outfit a little more wearable I paired it with a pair of  black converse, and no jewelry. For hair, go with a really messy beachy hair( for a post on this just ask:) ) and a small winged eyeliner with your water line lined. And to finish it off, go for red lips and you’ll be center of attention:)

So there ya have it:) Hope you liked it:):)
