white knot top bathing suit

Everyone knows the self-tanning basics.

Exfoliate prior.

Apply lotion on dry areas (elbows, knees) before application.

And use a mitt for even application.

There are several more but why discuss what we already know? Instead, let’s talk about 3 of my favorite self-tanning hacks (techniques I use on the reg) that aren’t so frequently covered. Why?

  • It’s the time of year for glowing skin.
  • Hemlines are only getting shorter and you need some color on those limbs.
  • Sun damage is not an option. Gross.
  • And because sharing is caring.

With that being said, let’s dive in to perfecting our self-tanning routines, ladies!

Rust tie-front dress

Rust Tie Front Dress

I wore this gorgeous privacy please dress to a friend’s graduation party this past weekend. It is the perfect knit for summer. The shade of rust is everything and I’m crazy about the cut-out with tie detail in front.

Time is flying and Memorial day is almost here. I recognize the holiday as the first day of Summer, even though the calendar claims it to be June 21st. We all know that’s a bunch of bullshit.

Where to shop my sunglasses

black and white polka dot romper cat eye sunglasses

Hello, hello!

I receive a lot of questions regarding the sunglasses I wear, so I thought I’d do a quick post highlighting my favorite brand- ZeroUV. I love their shades not only because the styling is so good, but also because they are incredibly inexpensive. I always tend lose mine during day drinking debauchery, so I prefer not to spend more than $20 on a pair.
