Pow! A pop of color!

Another fashion collage I made via Polyvore.  Love that website!  I spent some time exploring new parts of the city today; So, this look is really inspired by street fashion.  It uses a funky pattern and bright pops of color.  The style of the shoes and hat give it an urban feel.  The sleek, fitted solid black crop top adds a bit more order to this crazy style.  The shoes and hat coordinate with the colors in the print, but I kept them solid so that the focus of the outfit remains the leggings.

The Perfect Primer

Especially in the summer, I personally have a trouble with the length of time my foundation lasts.  Nothing is more annoying than taking the time in the morning to get the perfect complexion and having it melt off before the work day is even over.  So, primer is a major beauty must for me.

Finding a good primer, however, is not so easy.  Lucky for my readers, I've gone done all the hard work.  Through countless trial and error, I've finally found what I believe to be the best face primer on the market.  Let me just say for the record that I am not being paid to review this product, nor am I affiliated with the company in any way.  I am simply stating my opinion to help others find the best products easily.

Flawless Face Skincare Routine

Recently I posted about my favorite self-tanning products.  I touched a bit on exfoliation and moisturizing the skin before applying self-tan.  Healthy skin is a key to getting a gorgeous glow, whether you choose to use self-tanner or not.

I have combination, acne-prone skin.  Until recently, nothing I've tried has worked to clear my blemishes and give me beautiful, radiant skin.  I decided to share my routine because I understand the struggle to achieve a flawless face.  I am not sponsored to nor was I requested to review any of these products.

Beachy Boardwalk Collage

All this beautiful warm weather has got me dying for a trip to the beach!  But, technically it's still spring and the beaches aren't open yet..sad face.  I guess I'll just have to walk along the beach from a distance.  So, here's my beach boardwalk-inspired look collage.

My favorite self-tan products

First off, I was not sent these products or paid to review them at all.  This is simply my opinion on the best self-tanning products I've found through years of trial and error.

Summer's here, the season for lightened hair and tan skin.  The risk of skin cancer due to tanning has made many fear lying out for hours to get a deep summer glow.  Self-tan is a safer and healthier way to achieve this look.  Self-tan can also help those who do choose to tan achieve a darker, but still natural-looking skin tone.

Let me just say I love self-tanning.  I am extremely fair-skinned with freckles, strawberry-blonde hair, and blue eyes.  My skin wouldn't tan a bit if you left me in Jamaica for a month.  It is hard to find self-tanners that do not turn me orange, especially being so light-skinned naturally.
