I had these silver studded flats, but I really don’t wear silver anymore as I’ve realized gold is my new color. I found some gold acrylic paint lying around and instantly went into DIY mode.
Carefully paint the studs
Wait for the paint to dry and wear out!
I just got back from the Big Apple, which as usual, was a-MAH-zing. I am generally a horrible packer. I always bring too much, so this time around I planned out almost every outfit like a good fashion/beauty blogger should. And I must say, it worked out perfectly. Here’s are the complete outfits I packed. Not shown are shorts + t-shirts for the train rides and lounging around.
Packing tip: roll up your clothes! It saves a ton of space. And I always place my shoes as if they’re in a shoe box.
Everyone is expected to be tan in the summer, yeah? And while you know all about the dangers of tanning, people still do it. That will never change. I love being outside, and there’s nothing like a tan from natural sunlight. But like always, you have to use protection (see what I did there?). I used to go to the tanning bed all the time, so trust me- I see the appeal. And I have a strong aversion to self tanners due to their tendency to make me a coconut-scented Oompa Loompa.
Well FakeBake sent me their Flawless Tanning Lotion ($24.95) which did not turn me orange, but it did leave me smelling as if Hawaiian Tropic invented an air freshener even after I showered. The tan is pretty dark with the first application, and it stays on for a decent amount of time. Self tanners can be tricky to apply without streaking or splotches, but I’ve got some basics for you. The most important part of getting a good tan with a self tanner is patience.
