BRONZE YOUR BEAUTIFUL BODY! [New Video]

 

Hey Love Bug,

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.

Brrrrr In Style

I’m freezing and my teeth are chattering so I’m making this quick! It’s time to crank the heater, jump into my cute leggings, uggs & sweatshirt. It got below freezing this morning in Dallas and of course, I had to traipse around downtown in it on the way to a photoshoot. I wasn’t ready for it. There’s still a little bit of LA in me, I guess. My beanies, berets, faux fur scarves and gloves still need to be dusted off from the top of my closet.

Brrrrrrrrr.

I layered up. My trusty American Apparel V-neck Tee under a flannel plaid shirt gave me instant comfort and warmth factor.  Just because we’re getting hit hard with the low temps doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice style.  

Here are a few things I can’t live without in winter: 

Plaid_shirt-ralph-lauren-long-sleeve-plaid-print-shirt-profile

PLAID FLANNEL SHIRT

You may be thinking frumpy lumberjack, but there are so many cute flannel shirts at Target that are tapered to show your figure. I love these because you can layer them and throw them over a T-shirt. Because they button up, it’s easy to take it off once you’re in the warm indoors. Pair with skinny jeans, cute boots and a scarf and you have a great casual winter go-to outfit.

LONG PUFFER COAT

This is a savior and is always in style. I’ve had a long puffy coat like this for nearly 10 years and it’s saved me when I’ve had to take trips to colder climates like NYC or Aspen. Your bootie and legs are covered, plus they usually come with a belt or are tapered at the waist so you don’ look like the michelin man.   

 

floppy_fedora

FLOPPY FEDORA

I don’t care what you are wearing, if you add a floppy fedora – you look instantly glam. With the crazy winds & freezing rain during winter, a great hat will keep your hair in place as well as keep your head warm.

Target_gloves_touchscreen

TOUCHSCREEN COMPATIBLE GLOVES 

Since we lives on our phones, it’s a pain to keep taking our gloves off and on to return texts. I love these rouched microfleece gloves from Target (on sale right now for only $6. 40) with special touchscreen thumb and index fingertips. Of course, when you are getting dressed up- opt for a beautiful pair of leather gloves instead.

 

There are several other winter items I can’t live without, but these things were fresh on my mind today.. the first true wintery day. All of these items are timeless so invest in the good stuff. 

Stay warm. Stay stylish sistas! I’m off for a big bowl of hot soup.

Hey, what is the one item you would die without during winter? Comment and let us know. 

Love, Tiff

 

 

SICK OF YOUR LOOK? 5 Ways To Get Out Of A Beauty Rut

Do you cringe when you see a photo of yourself because you’ve had the same old look since 1995?

Are you itching for a beauty change, but not quite sure what to do? 

Can’t gather the courage to make a change? 

As your personal cheerleader and instigator of change- here are 5 ways I get myself out of a beauty rut and if you’ve been watching me webisodes for a while you know I’m not afraid to change my hair. That’s the easiest and fastest way to make a transformation. I think I’ve had every hair color possible except pink or purple.

Here’s your nudge…

sephora

1) PLAY IN MAKEUP

On your day off, take an hour to play in makeup at Sephora and ask a makeup artist or consultant to give you some fresh ideas. It can be overwhelming and confusing because there are so many makeup lines. Try different color palettes that you normally do. If your skin has been dull and ruddy, test some new illuminating foundations and powders. I tend to lean toward muted colors on the lip, but it always makes me look washed out in photos. With the holiday parties around the corner, try a brighter red lip for fun.

2) GET YOUR HAIR DID 

This is a difficult one for most women, but it’s also very liberating when we just go for it. There’s something emotional about cutting our hair. I’ve cut my hair in a pixie, a bob, a faux hawk (yes, in my Hollywood days when I realized I was miserable) and it’s been every shade between black and blonde. I am usually itching for a change by Fall and recently had my bangs cut and ombre highlights. That little change helped me get out of my beauty rut from the Summer. If you can’t do a total style change- at least try a more vibrant or lighter/darker version of your current color and try a few extra layers or change your part.

3) CREATE A SPA IN YOUR SHOWER

With the change of season, I tend to get bored with the cleansers, body washes and lotions I’ve been using during Summer. Try a new aromatic healthy body wash that creates a spa-like vibe in the shower. Plus, if you have dry skin it’s best to change up your body washes and lotions for winter. Look for hydrating and moisturizing brands like Whish Coconut Body Wash from Nordstrom. The ingredient list is so yummy! Also, the pH levels change in our skin with the change of seasons. This is an important time of year to pay special attention to our skincare regimen so if you’re in a rut- try a new cleanser. I recently started using the chemical free, all natural, aloe based skincare line – Hard Night/Good Morning by D’Andra Simmons. I especially love the AM Cleanser!  It’s an antioxidant rich exfoliating cleanser enhanced with jojoba beads to gently slough off dead skin cells and leave skin glowing. You feel like you’re giving yourself an at home mini facial every single day!

4) SWITCH UP YOUR SCENT

I had an interesting chat with some ladies a few weeks ago. We discussed who wore their same scent year around compared to those who squirted a different scent every time they walked out the door. How about you? Have you worn a signature scent all your life or do you switch it up? When I was a teen, my first favorite perfume was Tatiana by DVF named after her daughter. I wore it for years. I tend to stick to one scent until I get into a rut and am completely sick of it. I remember going through the Angel by Thierry Mugler phase. I wore it to death and can barely stand to smell it now. Sorry if that’s your fave! But if you’re in a rut, take some time to experiment and squirt some new fragrances on your trip to Sephora

5) FAKE IT DON’T BAKE IT

By now, your Summer glow has turned to pasty white so add some color with a great self tanner. Nothing makes you feel better -instantly- like a tan. In fact, I’m about to exfoliate and shower then apply a good coat of the Banana Boat above. I prefer doing this at night before bed so you awake with a glow. Make sure to wear a long sleeve tee and long pajama pants to keep the color on your skin and off your sheets.

These five tips help me tremendously and I hope they help you too!  I know it takes courage to try new things even something as simple as a new hair color, but the beauty of hair is that it always grows back and you can always change the color. What have you got to lose? You may gain a fabulous new look. Life is too short to live with the same hairstyle each decade! Just sayin’…

These aren’t the traditional cat eye, but I just love them with the two-tone acetate butterfly cat-esque shape. So unique!

BE FAB FRIDAY: Channel Your Inner Disco Diva

Tiff_ headscarf[Headcarf: Vintage, Aviators: DVF , Earrings: Taylor-Moseley, Sundress: Mossimo for Target]

Who loved the styling on Charlie’s Angels

For Summer, one of my favorite go-to styles is the retro 70’s look. It’s timeless and always in style! Just about everyone can rock this look, effortlessly. With the temps heating up, our hair can get unruly so throwing it up in a headscarf will give you instant glamour while keeping cool. In the selfie above, I simply swept my rolled hair to one side and threw on a scarf. I was attending a b-day party that was tentatively planned for outdoors and didn’t want my hair blowing all over the place. If you’ve been part of SOS for a while, you know I am a HUGE headscarf fan. It’s probably because I’m lazy when it comes to styling my hair during Summer and this is truly a hair SOS rescue! Many of you express you can’t quite get it right so I encourage you to grab some scarves in different sizes and play around with them this weekend. It just takes a bit of creativity!  

Here are several ways to rock a headscarf:

Video Replay: 

 

1. Wide Legged Jeans like these at Nordstrom 

2. Flowy Crochet Top. Forever 21 has lots of styles.

3. Target has beautiful, affordable maxi sundresses.

4. Jumpsuit like this one from Michael Kors 

5. Nordstrom has great metallic heels.

6. Chic floppy hat like this one by J. Crew

 

This weekend I’m heading on our first family vacay in years. I’m excited to chill with my parents, sis & hubby. We’re heading to the spot in West Texas where we went camping as kids! I’m so excited for Aaron to see that part of the state and for all of us to go offline & unplug for a few days. No makeup, cabin, cutoffs & flip flops. Instead of my inner disco diva, I’ll be unleashing my inner redneck hippie chick! 

Where are YOU headed on your Summer vacay?

Don’t forget to strut.

Love, Tiff

Look Cool + Stylish on a Budget (plus some motivation)

Who is loving Twenty Twelve so far? 

I’m sure everyone is getting back on the program and with all the gifts, extra dinners and groceries that are bought during the holidays- we’re all cutting back not only on the eating, but on the spending too!  So, right now is the perfect time to chat about one of my favorite topics…BUDGET SHOPPING!  Actually, now is a great time to pick up any wardrobe basics you need.  Most stores are having huge sales through January. 

After I got married and finances were tight, I learned very quickly how to keep up my passion-for-fashion and look stylish on a fraction of my previous shopping budget!  Now,we have more options than ever for finding great deals on great clothing, accessories and shoes!  I’m planning on taping more webisodes on how to put together fabulous outfits from places like Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and H&M.  Those are the first 4 spots I hit!
