BRONZE YOUR BEAUTIFUL BODY! [New Video]

 

Hey Love Bug,

It’s time to complete the beachy bronzed look we started last week. Did you try any of my tips for bronzing your face?  This week, I show you how I achieve an at home spray tan and camouflage the imperfections on my legs!

BRONZE GLOW is a multi-functional makeup blend formulated to create the most flawless and glowing complexion. It compliments all skin tones, easy to use and won’t clog pores.  Bronze Glow is not a sunless tanning spray but rather an HD makeup enhancer and can be used on the Face and Body to achieve a rich warm glow.  *It is supposed to fade evenly after 3-4 days, but actually stayed longer on me!

SUNGLO FACE & BODY BRONZER has a subtle touch of gold shimmer for a beautiful sun-kissed glow. It’s smooth and silky on your skin, evens out skin tone, blurring imperfections and covering tan lines, while giving you a youthful “tropical vacation” glow. Good for all skin types, This bronzer is best on fair to medium-dark skin tones. Fortified with natural oils and flower extracts such as chamomilla, calendula, tea tree and aloe extracts.

Many are asking already where I got this cute gingham dress, Nordstrom Rack y’all! The choker too. The bracelets are a combo stack of ronniemjewelry.com and taylorshayedesigns.com . Wedge sandals are Steve Madden from Nord’s!  Yes, they are high, but so so so comfy.

Stay Cool & Chic in the Office {New Style Webisode}

Hey Fellow Fashionistas!

Many of you have been asking for new style videos and today is the day! Thanks for being patient. I must admit- I thought I was all tapped out with style tips and started getting burnt out on it all. My right hand is in pain for a week after editing a video and I was starting to lose creativity. I realize I have to put in the grunt work and won’t have to edit everything forever. I don’t know how full-time computer graphic artists do it. Just keepin’ it real. I have so much more inside me to share than just shopping & style tips and many of you have expressed how much the motivational candid vlogs inspire you. That makes me so happy. But, I realized this is par for the course when you’re on your path & purpose. We have to take a breather and a step back in order to regain clarity of purpose, rekindle the flame and gather energy for the next part of the journey.

There have been many times since I started SOS that I wanted to quit. I cried to my hubby a few weeks ago because I felt like I was in limbo and being stretched to my limits. I wondered what was to come next. I had just passed on a publishing deal for my book and that broke my heart. It just wasn’t a ‘fit’ for me and my mission. I actually got mad at God. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO? I prayed…. and yelled a bit. Then, like always, I’m given peace and perspective. I thought of all the women who have written me saying how the blog & videos helped them transform and feel more confident. That is what motivates me to keep on keepin’ on!  SOS isn’t for me, it’s for you.

The TD Jakes quote came to mind, “Whenever God pulls back a bow, the arrow is going to go further than it’s ever gone before.”  I share this with you all because I know there are many of you who are feeling stretched right now. Summer is nearly over and the kids are going back to school. Schedules are changing and you are the one who has to keep it all going smoothly. The world is so fragile and we’re getting horrible news daily. Don’t allow the stretching or the shaky feelings to derail you from your purpose. Do not give up. Take a beat. A time out. Then get ready to go farther than you ever have before. WooHoo! 

Ok- enough of that. Ready for the new video complete with a brand spankin’ new intro!?  I’m so excited for the new look and vibe. I have to thank my hubby for supporting me and pushing me to take things to the next level. He cares about all of you sistas as much as I do! I read him the messages you all send me and it inspires & touches him to keep helping me.

Just as we need a ‘makeover’ from time to time- so does SOS. Hope you like it…

5 Must-Try Swim Trends for 2014 By Guest Blogger Susan Bodack

We are finally progressing into Spring and every day brings us closer to warmer temperatures and sunnier skies. So, if you haven’t started stocking up on some new swimwear, it’s time to get cracking! Hopefully you’ve already got a fabulous Spring trip planned, but even if you don’t think you’ll hit the beach until the 4th of July, it’s never too early to start thinking swim. Get ready to hit the beach in style with these top 5 must-try trends for the 2014 season:

 Sanctuary of Style - Tequila Y Sal flutter top bikini by Luli Fama1) Flutter Tops: The flutter top trend is the perfect way to feminize your look while subliminally emphasizing the bust line. Many designers are adding flowy, fluttery detailing to the front of tops which look equally gorgeous blowing in the breeze or draped along your torso while you’re chilling on a chaise lounge. Whether you choose a fun print, crisp white or pretty pastel, this trend will make your heart flutter.

 

Sanctuary of Style - Arrows fringe bikini by L Space

2) Fringe AccentsAlthough this trend was huge last season, funky fringe accents are back with a vengeance for 2014. In addition to adding movement and playfulness to a swimsuit, fringe also lends some boho-chic flair. Plus longer-cut fringes can add a bit of camouflage as well as distraction from certain “problem areas” like the torso and upper inner thighs.

 

Sanctuary of Style - Secrets crochet bikini by ACACIA

3) Crochet DetailsA sexy crocheted swimsuit? Definitely not what your granny had in mind! In addition to creating texture, crochet can also add a bit of peek-a-boo allure to your suit. Perfect for both boho-chic beach babes and flirty fashionistas alike, this trend is a must this season.

Sanctuary of Style - Serra strappy bikini by Vitamin A

4) StrappyWhile swimsuits in general bare some skin, this sexy trend takes it up a notch. Whether you’re looking to tantalize or tease, you can easily find swimwear styles with strategically placed strappy detailing that offer glimpses of your skin that would ordinarily be covered.

Sanctuary of Style - Denim bikini by PilyQ5) Denim: Most of us don’t think denim is a very beach-friendly material, but that’s because we typically associate it with jeans and shorts. But this year’s hottest collections feature some denim-inspired swim styles that are sure to stand out. Some designers take the trend a step further and add denim-inspired detailing, such as pockets, rivets and golden camel-colored stitching to complete the look.

2014’s hottest swimwear collections feature a ton of fun and flirty trends, making it hard to choose a favorite! Whether you stick to one or rock them all, you’re guaranteed to look as sizzling as the summer sun.

Susan is a blogger at Beauty and the Beach–a swimwear and lifestyle blog by InStyleSwimwear.com! Whether you’re prepping for an upcoming beach vacation or simply getting a head start on your summer style, InStyleSwimwear.com will have you looking beach-chic in no time flat.

END OF MAY SOS BEAUTY/STYLE/INSPIRATION

Hey Style Sistas!

WOOHOO!  It’s officially Summer and as the temps continue to heat up, here’s a few tips for staying cool and looking fabulous, plus some inspiration for the week ahead:

WRAP THAT HAIR UP!

Tiff_leopard_headscarf

Regardless of your hair length, it can get so sticky and uncomfortable, plus the humidity can have you looking like a wet mop during summer.  There are so many ways to keep it off your neck without reverting to the boring old ponytail.  This summer, the Retro 50’s look is everywhere from swimsuits, rolled up jeans, cat eye shades and headscarfs–which you all know is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!   Channel your inner Old Hollywood actress like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn and play around with scarves.  Check out my Pinterest Board on headscarves for more ideas and inspiration.

SPRAY THAT FACE!

rosepetalsrosewater

Keep a bottle of aromatherapy hydrating spray nearby at all times during the hot months.  I even keep a small travel size bottle in my purse!  When you’re skin is feeling parched, spritz it on your face, neck, decolletage and down your arms.  My favorite is the Rose Water by Heritage Products.  There are also easy DIY recipes by adding your favorite essential oils, pure aloe vera juice, cucumber or lemon to distilled water. 

 

BE INSPIRED!

‘NUFF SAID.

Whew, the month of May whizzed by!  Did you set any specific intentions for the month?  If so, please share any magical moments! 

Let us be grateful for the good times May brought, any special memories made with new or old friends, exciting experiences and opportunities then begin to set your intentions for June.

DOES YOUR SKIN NEED A MIRACLE?

Happy Monday Style Sista’s!

I am so giddy about the SPECIAL addition to this week’s summer swag bag! As you know, I am sent products on a regular basis to test out and give my feedback on.  There are many things I do not share with you because I only endorse and put my name behind things that are super effective and good for you. My girlfriend, Carla Masley, from Canada introduced me to what I call a “MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE”.  She always has her finger on the pulse of the latest + greatest healthy skincare products. It’s the most unique and technologically advanced skincare product I have ever seen called SKINCERITY Nightly Breathable Masque.  My belief in this product is so strong that I had to become a rep so I could make it available to all of you right here on my blog. It is also helping my beautiful mom with her rosacea!

{Watch my testimonial}

{Watch this video for more details on how it works}

 

How spoiled are you girls….the lovely Carla is giving a bottle of Skincerity to one of my awesome Canadian blog followers!  It is simple to enter, if you live anywhere in Canada, you must connect with Carla via Facebook.  Here’s the steps:

  1. Friend request Carla at https://www.facebook.com/carla.masley
  2. Also send her a message stating you are entering her SOS giveaway and are a blog subscriber of mine.
  3. Share my blog link  http://sanctuaryofstyle.net on your FB page and encourage your Canadian friends to subscribe and enter!

*PLEASE NOTE, if you are in Canada- you are only allowed to enter this single bottle giveaway and not the full swag bag giveaway for this week. For the girls in the US, the regular swag bag rules apply.

{A simple style tip}

No matter how old you are, wearing pink can totally change your mood and make you walk tall in your GIRLPOWER!  I never wore pink because I thought it was too girly, but as I’ve gotten older I love the way it makes me feel.  It just gives everyone’s skintone a gorgeous glow.  Remember when you need a little lift–throw on a pink scarf, a pair of pink pumps or paint your nails pink.

{Inspiration}

Let’s all make these affirmations for the week ahead! Have a fabulous week sista’s!

1. I will walk tall in my power no matter what.
2. I will not allow anyone to take that power away.
3. I will shine my light + strut my stuff.
4. I will handle everything with grace. (even if I’m PMS’ing)
5. I will give to others w/o spreading myself too thin.
6. I will wear a colorful top + fun jewelry.
7. I will drink plenty of water.
8. I will write a list of things I’m grateful for.
9. I will fill my body w/ dark green veggies.
10. I will take some me time.

Beauty+Style+Inspiration Quick Tips

Here’s just a few quick tips for mid-summer…

{Beauty}

I am loving the ARCHIPELAGO Grapefruit Sugar Scrub during summer! The sugar is finer that the more course salt scrubs and the grapefruit scent and essential oils are divine.  It’s so important to exfoliate your skin during summer especially if you are out in the sun and in a chlorine pool on a regular basis.

{Style}

One of my summer must have’s is bold colorful necklaces. Have you rocked one yet? Turquoise is one of my fave’s because it looks so beautiful with a tan! Throw in some gold jewelry and you’ll look modern, chic + ultra glam!

{Inspiration}

Remember you become who you hang around. Do you surround yourself with negative nellies, whiners, mediocre people who want you to stay where you are? Make it a priority to hang around those who see your potential, encourage your gifts and help you come up higher. I am so grateful for the circle of cheerleaders and positive friends who make me want to be better!

If you have a great beauty or style tip for summer, make sure to leave a comment!

Have a stylish + successful week ahead,

Tiff

PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES ON

Hey Sass-a-frass!

Giving you a big high five, a hip bump and double cheek air kiss for kickin’ butt through another week.  What are your plans for the weekend?  Here’s a quick video to remind you of a few things:

Make sure to join in on the fun convo’s on the FACEBOOK PAGE next week!  We have some stellar sponsors for the Summer Swag Bag Giveaways every week.  I had to pleasure of checking out the crazy cool boutique in Thousand Oaks called Luscious Soul and met the fabulous owner, Kelly Phillipson. We hand-picked some unique and fun items to give away. Plus, we’ve got self tanning spray, extender lotions and foams from my fave Colour Couture! Also, healthy and effective organic skincare products from Sia Botanics. They have some of the best concoctions like a blueberry oxygenating scrub! Check out their site and read their “about” section.  Sounds like a super cool group!  There are a few more killer sponsors coming on board, but I’ll leave the suspense.

{Kelly Rocks}

{Colour Couture Self Tanning Products}

{Sia Botanics}

Remember, a big part of you shining brightly is to fill up your lamp.  By the end of the week it’s usually running low,  you are basically running on fumes or you barely have a spark much less your total level of illumination- RIGHT!?

Cheers to filling up your lamp this weekend! Do whatever you have to do to ‘giterdone’.  If you have to put on your big girl panties, stand up for yourself and say no to some things- then SO BE IT!

A big wink,

Tiff
