St. Tropez Tanning Essentials Review

I was so grateful to receive a PR package of St. Tropez Tanning Essentials to try and share. I have not done a ton of self tanning in the last few years but these products have dramatically changed my at home beauty routine to always include a healthy dose of tanning. After one application my tan was extremely noticeable in a good way, it really gives you the look of a real vacation tan. I used the mousse first and one thing I noticed right away was the green undertone of the product. Green is what we want in our self tanners as it ensures we will not look like oranges.  I used the mitt that had been provided and applied the mousse like I would apply body lotion, rubbing it in. I waited a few minutes, put my PJ's on and went to bed. Does anyone else feel extra excited for the morning when they know they will be waking up to a fresh tan? After just one application I was getting tons of compliments on my tan.

I currently apply the mousse about once a week. I exfoliate my skin with a loofa every night in the shower, I do an extra good job on the nights I am going to be applying my self tanner. I like to use the mist in between my weekly mousse applications for days when I will be taking photos or have a special event, to amplify my tan quickly and easily. I apply the face primer daily before applying my foundation to help my face match the rest of my body. I exfoliate and mask my face regularly and lose that tan quickly so the daily primer is a genius product.

I love that these products are easy to apply and give excellent beautiful results. Once and awhile I do notice a little colour coming off on my bras but other than that, there is not much product transfer in my experience. These are a higher price beauty item but they last a long time and the quality is great! I am hoping to stay bronzed all through the winter this year!

Urban Decay Born To Run Palette | Makeup Tutorial

I have been having fun creating lots of looks with the Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette over the last few weeks. I have shared some of the different looks I have created below. In the video below, I am creating a soft, blended purple eye look. I barely edited this video, I thought it would be cool for you guys to see how much I blend each colour for a soft everyday look. Sometimes when I edit a makeup tutorial I just give a quick shot of where to apply each colour and then move on to the next step. This look is a quick look that is easy to create any day of the week. Thanks for watching and I hope you guys like it.

If you are interested in checking out some of the products I used, for yourself, I have linked them below.

Summer Dresses | Old Navy

My favourite thing to wear in the summer is a dress! It is effortless and comfortable. Many of my dresses I have had for years, when you have classic shapes in your wardrobe you will be able to wear them for seasons to come and refresh them with accessories. Over the years, I have picked up some of my favourite dresses from Old Navy so I scrolled through their website and linked a bunch I love below. Bonus for shopping dresses during August, many styles are on sale. Here are some of my favourite summer dresses and some new styles I am loving from Old Navy too.

Transverse Myelitis | God's Got This

I was not sure how much I wanted to share from the last few weeks of my life but I love creating and sharing on social media, its a passion for me and I believe my ability to story tell is one of my God given gifts so it would be wrong to not give God the glory during this time of my life. The enemy will not make me afraid and hold me back from sharing the great work God is doing through me right now. God has blessed me abundantly over the last few weeks and I am even more empowered than ever to sing His praise. I also wanted to share this story because this is part of my life and I have always said that real meaningful relationships can only happen when we are open and honest. Talking about beauty and fashion and sharing lovely pictures is a fun way to connect but for real depth to develop, we gotta get real with the not so pretty parts of life. So, here are some thoughts from the last few weeks. Above all, I trust God and His perfect plan!
