Don't you just feel better when you're tan? I'll admit it: I DO! There's something about that sun-kissed glow that makes me feel more confident, it makes my makeup look better; I just feel radient.
And while I do hit a tanning bed from time to time (bad, bad, I know), I really try my best not to, for the obvious reasons. If you're in the same boat, check out these sunless bronzing options that I've been using and stocking up on just in time for the warm weather!
SOL POTION STUDIO
I'm obsessed with this place. I just went to a black-tie event this past weekend, and hit up Sol Potion to get an all-over glow: Face and body. The tanning technicians at Sol Potion give you a customized sunless (airbrush) tan designed just for you and your skintone. It's flawless, every time. No streaks, no orange skin. (Sol Potion is on Woodward in Royal Oak. Check out their WEBSITE).
ST. TROPEZ SELF-TAN BRONZING MOUSSE
It's a bit pricey, but a bottle of this lightweight mousse lasts a long time, and it gives you a bronze glow. Plus, it's infused with moisturizers that are good for your skin. You will get a perfectly natural looking, streak-free tan that dries in 60 seconds and doesn't stink! (You can buy it at Sephora).
L'OREAL SUBMLINE BRONZE SELF-TANNING TOWELETTES
Probably the easiest way to get a glow: One-time use towelettes that you simply smooth over your skin! (Get 'em at Ulta.)
I was in NYC a few weeks ago celebrating my birthday, and I got to hang out with my BFF from college, Ashley.
The best way to describe her: Fashionista.
She's always impeccably dressed, knows the latest trends, finds the best deals, etc.
You get the idea.
And throughout the weekend, I felt like I asked her a dozen times, "I LOVE your outfit. Where'd you get it?" Her response: Joe Fresh. I had no clue what this Joe Fresh was all about, or where I could get my hands on it.
So you can imagine the SQUEAL that came out of my mouth when I walked into the JCP at Twelve Oaks Mall and saw their newest line ... JOE FRESH!
Ahhhh! The secret is out.
Here's the thing I love about the Joe Fresh line: The clothes look super-expensive, but they're actually super-affordable.
I have so many friends that are in the process of planning weddings, and all of them have the same frustration: Everyhting is so expensive!
It's true. When I was planning last year, I was trying so hard to cut corners to stay on budget in any way that I could.
One of my little "secrets"? The Ruffled blog. Particularly, the "Recycle Your Wedding" portion of the blog. Basically, brides who have already gotten married sell their gently-used items from their weddings. SO ... You're getting a great deal on really cool stuff that you can use for your OWN wedding! I'm not going to lie, I've sold some cute stuff from MY wedding on there ... And also bought a few things, too!
Tip: If you're in the market for a wedding dress, shoes, or other accessories to wear on your Big Day, they have all of that on there as well!

SO excited for this event. Make sure you're at Somerset Collection (North Side) THIS SATURDAY to help me welcome 7 For All Mankind!
My very first pair of "cool jeans" were 7s, and I've been a fan ever since. And NOW, it's not just plain-old jeans that you're gonna see in the store ... Trendy leather, shimmer jeans, brocades, metallic pants, tops, shoes, etc.
Here's the outfit I picked out to wear to the big Grand Opening Party (from 7 For All Mankind, of course).
Check out all of 7's new "stuff" for the holiday season HERE!
