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.

BE FAB FRIDAY: A Lil Beauty, Style and Inspiration

Hey Sistas!

Here’s a few quick SOS tips to keep you looking + feeling fabulous….

{BEAUTY}

Keep your summer tan glowing into Fall with my fave new drugstore bronzer by Physicians Formula. Many bronzers look orangey or have too much sparkle which settles into wrinkles and can make your skin look older, ruddy and dirty. YIKES! This bronzer is a combo of a powder and cream which actually melts into the skin giving you a beautiful airbrushed glow!  Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Airbrushing Bronzing Veil Deluxe Edition

{STYLE}

As you begin pulling out your brown boots for Fall, remember to throw on a leopard belt for extra fabulous-ness. I got this calf hair skinny belt at Target, YEP… Target! I paired it with cognac colored clogs.

 The brilliant thing about a leopard belt is it goes with EVERY shade of brown. No more second guessing what belt to match!

{INSPIRATION}

I want to say thank you for receiving- with love- the recent blog about forgiving yourself. Many of you have sent me private messages sharing your journey with me. This is the beauty of the connection we have in SOS. It is a virtual circle of strong hands linked together in non-judgement and support. May we all continue to grow and make the best choices for ourselves and our futures.

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure to take some time for YOU!

SENSATIONAL, SMART + SASSY SWAG BAG SPONSORS

Hello Gorgeous!

Thank you all for posting + playing in the Summer Swag Bag Giveaways!  There’s only a few weeks left and I would like to give a BIG shout out to our fabulous sponsors! I really enjoy sharing and supporting great products and companies that I love– especially that are owned by women!  Most of the companies participating this summer are owned and/or managed by women who had a dream, stepped out, took a risk and made it happen! They all have an amazing story and I believe when we join together to help promote and build up our businesses– GREATNESS HAPPENS! I’m thrilled to introduce you to these amazing women:

Kelly Phillipson:

Owner of the fabulous boutique LUSCIOUS SOUL

LUSCIOUS (adj) highly pleasing to the taste or smell, sweet to the senses or the mind, richly adorned, luxurious, extremely attractive.

SOUL (n) the principle of life, feeling thought and action…the spirit within.

“These two words simply define everything I strive to find within myself and my surroundings of the people and things that I love most. With that in mind Luscious Soul has been created to bring my favorite things to one place. You will find my love of travel, distinctive home decor, clothing, jewelry, products for your skin and body and so many things in between….Eclectik is a State of Mind. Most of the lines I carry are in the family of eco friendly: re-used, re-shaped, and/or recycled in some way, shape or form.”

Monica Blanco:

Owner of COLOUR COUTURE SUNLESS TANNING

Monica Blanco is Hollywoodʼs “it” girl in the world of sunless tanning. Known for her signature application, Blanco and her team at Colour Couture are the most sought afterairbrush tanners in Southern California. Whether itʼs a weekend in Vegas or a wedding in Napa, Blanco and her team specialize in shading to help the client look thinner, more sculpted and healthier. Her trademark process gives clients a tan thatʼs safer and more flattering than what you get at the beach.

A teen mother turned entrepreneur, Blanco prides herself on giving her team at Colour Couture the opportunity to make money doing something they love. Each member goes through the most rigorous training in the market before they are certified to practice the Colour Couture method in cities all over the United States. This allows women to open their own tanning businesses and thrive because the Colour Couture method is so popular.

Alexandra Howard:

Creator + Owner of BEAUTY SPRINKLES

“With over 17 years experience assisting a world-famous Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, I have learned what can be done to care for skin without the help of surgery. One of my specialties has been Facial Mesotherapy Vitamin Injections. This not-yet-well-known procedure is the skincare secret weapon of movie stars and models for youthful, glowing skin, and I have performed thousands of these treatments over the years. Also known as Mesolift or Mesoglow, the treatment consists of multiple micro-injections of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote collagen production and stimulate the skin’s metabolism. And it works really, really well. But I know that many of the ‘luxury’ treatments available to us are unaffordable — lasers, fillers, peels, expensive vitamin injection treatments. So what could we all use? I always knew there was a better way…Being a cancer survivor, I also became concerned about the chemicals I was exposed to, and my skin was commanding attention at an accelerated rate. Through my health challenges, I was motivated to create something for myself that was totally natural, healthy, and effective. Something that combined my medical experience with my Greek heritage of using herbs and natural ingredients. My mother, who is from Greece, always used natural remedies when I was a child. Her favorite ‘cure-all’ was chamomile. From her, I learned the natural vitamin-packed powers of fruits, vegetables and herbs. So after years of research, self experimentation, testing with others (thank you) and numerous natural concoctions later, “ta, da, ta tah!” Beauty Sprinkles was born!”

SIA BOTANICS

“We are a small group of committed individuals producing skincare from a botanical perspective. We believe our products, our actions and our business practices will make a difference. We continually seek improvement through innovation and creativity. We love natural skincare, a good joke, a very dirty martini, a great pair of shoes, a buns burning hike, and figuring out ways to do things better. We think confidence is sexy, we think intelligence is sexy, we think great skin is sexy and we think that happiness is better than all of these. We think loving what you do is essential.”

MICHELLE COLON-JOHNSON:

Director of Marketing + PR for SOUND WISDOM

Sound Wisdom books, audios, and videos assist speakers in spreading the wealth of knowledge to a much broader audience than those speakers can reach individually.

Michelle Colon-Johnson is a Model, Author, Speaker and Director of Marketing + PR for Sound Wisdom Publishing. Michelle loves sharing her journey with others who are looking to make their dreams come true. Michelle is a Mother to an Autistic teenage Daughter, a five time stage four cancer survivor and like many of us has been through relationships that leave us emotionally bankrupt. What do you do when you file bankruptcy? You start all over again with more knowledge and a thirst for a better life. Where do you start? Michelle says we all start with ourselves. With every failure a success is created.You can have the life you want by Attracting the life you dream about.

I say “ditto” to this quote by Rachel Ray…

Thank you all for joining me in celebrating these strong and courageous women today!

High five + a Hip Bump,

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.

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

I HAD IT ALL WRONG! Part 3 of Tara’s 5 Minute Face: Powder & Bronzer

Thank God for Tara Dowburd-Luftman of Makeup Therapy!  In Part 3 of her 5 Minute Face, TDL shows us how to apply the RIGHT TYPE OF POWDER & BRONZER.   I found out I’ve been doing it all wrong for about 15 years now!   

Tara recommends translucent powder without color to set and get rid of shine.  I’ve been using a “dual finish” powder and always looked like a grease-pit by the middle of the day.  PLUS, she recommends using a  bronzer without shimmer in it.   Yep, I had that wrong too!

Her top pick for translucent powder is by LAURA MERCIER,

For bronzer she loves BOBBI BROWN,

BRING ON THE COLOR FOR SPRING 2011

I HEART SPRING and have checked out a bunch of Spring 2011 magazines and give you my two-cents on the top looks..and the ones to skip! First thing, it is all about BOLD COLOR this Spring.  Wear a beautiful tangerine orange top.  Guaranteed to make you feel powerful!  There is also muted blushes, head-to-toe white, liquid metallics and the city safari look.  Girls, it is time to channel your inner Charlie’s Angels this season!  Tie in accents of that RETRO 70’s look…MY ALL TIME FAV!

 

I also added a BONUS WEBISODE…a quick rundown of the Spring 2011 Accessories.

Remember this is a great time to spruce things up, clear the clutter, try a new nail polish color or new haircolor, get a facial, get a spray tan and shed the winter blah’s!

SHINE ON!
