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.

BOOTIE GAME STRONG

It’s FriYAY!

Did you know the right shoes can make you feel powerful? Just ask Cinderella.  A shoe that makes me feel extra sassy is the bootie. What exactly is a “bootie”? It’s basically any boot that is cropped short around the ankle area. I stumbled upon a few fabulous pairs from Nordstrom Rack last week and just had to share them with you in this candid video:

My 4 Must Have Booties For Fall 2016:

1. BLACK SLOUCHY. “Laurel” Kristen Cavallari for Chinese Laundry

If you had to pick just one, I highly recommend getting this Kristen Cavallari for Chinese Laundry “Laurel”.  Seriously, I have no idea how I have been living without these. Thanks Courtney Kerr!

2. PURPLE OR BURGUNDY SUEDE. GX By Gwen Stefani

3. NUDE/TAN SUEDE SLOUCHY. Dolce Vita

4. BLACK CHUNKY LUG SOLE. Kendal & Kylie for Steve Madden

Rock on with yo bad self,

BEING MISS THRIFTY IS STYLISH & SMART: A Day In My Life

Thrift_books

 

Happy Sunday Sistas!

Since moving to Dallas, my husband has been in and out of town every month with his CD launch and we haven’t had much time to explore this fab city. Since he was in town for the 4th of July weekend, I decided to introduce him (and reintroduce myself) to all that Dallas has to offer. I love to just get in the car and go on excursions without a hard set schedule. We knew we wanted to have a chill day with some browsing, nibbles and I wanted to get in some thrift shopping.

We started at Bishop Arts District which has changed and grown since I last lived here. This charming, Austin-esque area has some of my favorite eateries as well as eclectic shops and vintage stores. Grab brunch at Oddfellows or dinner at Tillman’s Road House. Tillman’s private dining room is amazing with real trees lining the walls. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Put this on your to-do list when visiting Big D!

One of my favorite things to do when I lived in Dallas 15 years ago was thrift shopping. The greater DFW area has fantastic thrift and vintage stores. Yesterday was my first opportunity to go hunting – and bless my hubby’s heart – he was so patient. I’m sure thrift shopping is comparable to getting teeth pulled without anesthesia for a man. He was not only patient, he asked Siri where the best locations were!

One of my intentions for the Summer is making the time to read more. I have ordered a few new titles off Amazon, but the very best place to get books is Goodwill. I’ve mentioned this on the blog before and several of you commented that you also shop there for your books. Well, yesterday – my thrifty shopping angels were on it and led us to a gigantic Goodwill where I found 13 hardcover books at only $2 a pop. HOLLA! I found books to fill many of my interests from leadership and spirituality titles from John C. Maxwell, Max Lucado, Sarah Ban Breathnach, M.Scott Peck MD, Thomas Moore and John Eldredge to Suze Orman’s financial wisdom to a few biographies of successful female TV hosts. I also love giving away the small, but powerful reads by Bruce Wilkinson on the message of John 15 and the Prayer of Jabez so I pick up extra copies whenever I find them. 

I was excited to find that my favorite Dallas Salvation Army on Harry Hines was still open and guess what I found there? Three beautiful silk scarves in gorgeous Summer colors for a whopping $8 total. Can I get a double… Holla, Holla! Although thrift shopping takes some skill, a good eye and high tolerance for that funky “vintage smell” – it is so fun and rewarding when you score! Most books average $26 retail and I got 13 for the same price. A good quality silk scarf will run you from $30-300 depending on the brand. So, being thrifty is both stylish and smart, sista!

We still have so much to explore in Dallas, but for our first jaunt around town- it was a total success!  We ended the day hydrating and snacking on the best chips & salsa on the planet at Rafa’s on Lovers Lane. Add it to your list when visiting! You can’t visit any city in Texas without indulging on their best Tex Mex.

STYLE Q&A

Hey Style Sisters!

There were several great questions submitted here on the blog and on the Facebook Page and {woohoo} it makes my job a whole lot easier knowing exactly the issues you girls are dealing with in your closets!  In today’s webisode, I tackle 3 great topics:

  1. What to pair with navy?
  2. How to layer without looking like you added 10 lbs?
  3. What’s a cute outfit to wear to my kids games instead of my typical yoga pants?

 

 

{Navy is for the fashionista not just the corporate biz man}

{Key to layering= wear thin fabrics}

{No yoga pants except to yoga class}

Wishing you plenty of blue skies, leopard print, red lipstick and bouncin’ & behavin’ hair to make you happy the rest of the week!

Spring Fever at TJ Maxx

Hey Ladybugs!

HAPPY LEAP YEAR DAY!  About every four years, we get an extra 24 hours of the year!  Woohoo!   How are you going to spend yours?  What a luxury to get an entire extra day! I really love this time of year when Spring is approaching!  One day may be 75 degrees then the next it could be 60 degrees.  This is a sign that Spring is around the corner and I ALWAYS get a raging case of  SPRING FEVER!  I feel like a grizzly bear ready to come out from hibernation and shed the winter coats and furry boots!  Hmmm, maybe more like a butterfly emerging from her cocoon!  Yep, that’s sound better!

I popped into a new TJ Maxx last week and felt like Dorothy entering the Land of Oz! A 2-story magical place filled with colorful Spring clothes, shoes and handbags.  HEAVEN!   I was thrilled to find a few great MUST HAVE’s to share with you.  If you are active on Facebook or Pinterest– forgive the repeat info, but I wanted to make sure you fabulous bloggers were in on the fun too!

COLORFUL JEANS!  Last year, the red jean was on everyone’s ‘must have’ list- this year it’s all about the YELLOW jean.  I found a great outfit online by Rag & Bone which totaled $495. just for the sweater and pair of jeans. NO LIE!  Many of you have more important things to spend $500. on- like maybe important things like food and clothing for your children:-)  I found a comparable version of that outfit at TJ MAXX for only $45. Of course, the quality of the fabric is different, but for a trendy piece (like colored denim) that you may not wear next season- this is a wiser investment!

Rag & Bone $495.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         TJ Maxx $45.

SOMETHING MINTY FRESH!  I was a bit iffy on MINT being the new hot color for Spring, but it’s grown on me.  It’s fresh and feminine and pairs with a variety of other colors!  Since I have so much yellow in my skin- mint isn’t flattering around my face, so I will opt for a jean/pant/skirt or a great HOBO BAG like this one from the Maxx…

CORK WEDGE! This is one my absolute favorite MUST HAVE’S for Spring!  Every woman should have a great, go-to cork wedge in her shoe collection.  A fresh twist for this Spring is a colorful wedge or one with a splash of color as an accent.  These by Steve Madden are so fun!  Only $40. HOLLA!

There’s just a little teaser!  I’m sure I will find many more MUST HAVE’S as the weather gets warmer!  Stay tuned!

Feel free to share this with your friends- everyone likes money saving tips.

A DAY IN MY LIFE…

Hey SOS Sista’s,

I hope everyone is feeling Sassy, Stylish and Superfly today!   As I write this, I am gearing up for a fun girlie day of shopping and getting my hair done (honestly, I hate sitting in the salon chair) to get “purdy” for my B-day weekend coming up.    I have no clue what the festivities will be, but I know my honey and friends have something up their sleeve!   I want to hear how YOUR summer has been so leave a COMMENT BELOW and let us all know! (Hey, I made a rhyme)

In the latest webisode, I wanted to try something a little different and bought the newer version of the FLIP camera in HD.  That lil thing rocks!  Highly recommend you get one to record fun occasions with fam and friends!   They’re inexpensive and very user friendly.  Ok, back to the subject… I decided to tape my lovely Go-to-Girl, Vio Meyners in a typical day of ours.  We start with a workout, play in her closet, head to an audition, lunch and tape an SOS webisode with Marcy Guevara (coming soon!!). 

Just FYI, no- I do not go around looking this made up on a daily basis unless I have auditions or meetings!  The tomboy is still very alive in me and on most days, I’m sporting track pants and tennis shoes!  Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my life.  Let me know what ya think and if you would like to see more “reality show”style webisodes…

I get so excited every season to see what the latest & greatest styles will be!   Good thing for all of us FASHIONISTA’S, many of the trends we’ve been seeing since last Fall 2010 through Spring 2011 are the same.  Makes it easy on the wallet!  Get ready to shop your closet before hitting the stores.  You know me, I’m googoo gaga over all the LEOPARD print out right now and did purchase a smokin’ hot pair of leopard shoes. Could not resist.  PURRRR!  So,  if you have a leopard print piece, this is the season to ROCK IT!  

In fact, upload a photo of yourself rockin’ your leopard to the SOS facebook page and a winner will be chosen to win a VERY special prize – one of MY FAVE ACCESSORIES!   ONLY SUBSCRIBERS TO THIS BLOG ARE ELIGIBLE!

My Fave Quote This Week:
“Oftentimes, people allow the opinions of others to hold them back & water down their dreams. But, we have to realize that there will always be critics & naysayers in life. One of the most important things you can learn is that other people don’t have to believe in you in order for your dreams to come to pass. Other people don’t set the limits for your life — YOU DO! (Joel Osteen)

FLY HIGH!  xoTiff
