6 Hacks to Get that Sun-Kissed Bronze Look this Summer

sunkissed

This summer, you don’t have to risk the dangers sun rays to get that bronzed and sun-kissed look by sunbathing for hours. There are plenty of tricks and hacks you can implore to fake it without baking yourself, compliments from our pals at SmileSimplicity.

Here are 6 easy Tips for getting that sunkissed and outdoorsy look with less the hassle:

1. Wear white and lots of it. And just as nice, you’ll feel and look cool and collected.

2. Consider a new nail polish. White isn’t the only color that will bring out your inner golden goddess. Any color that is lighter than your skin will make your

complexion look bold by comparison. Neons, corals, and golds are good choices.

3. Pile on the turquoise jewelry. This soft color pops against skin. Pastels like mint green work well too.

4. Whiten your smile. There are many tooth whitening options on the market, from whitening toothpastes and mouth rinses to in-office treatments. But why

not brighten your smile permanently with SmileSimplicity porcelain veneers? This is a new generation porcelain veneer that doesn’t require any drilling away

of sensitive tooth structure and thus no anesthesia. Bonus: this magic transformation can also correct chips, cracks and imperfections.

5. Go for the bronze: Dust a bronzer over cheekbones, but ask the makeup counter expert to help you pick your shade. Ideally, it should be no more than

two shades darker than your natural skin tone. You’re going for glow, not stripes.

5. Choose a coral lipstick and sheer gold eye shadow.

 6. Sun kiss your hair with blond streaks. Already blond? Add dimension and

contrast with some low lights.

Trend Alert: Round Bold Statement Sunglasses



round sunglasses
You don’t have to like all the trends that come into fashion each season. As a person with a round face, I tend to stay away from sunglasses with round frames. So personally, I will be skipping out on the round statement sunglasses trend this Spring and Summer. The cool style has been spotted on some famous faces of late.
How about  you? Round Sunglasses: Are you a fan or no?

DOWNLOAD: How to Execute a DIY Fashion Shoot in 10 Steps (eBook)

  

diy-fashion-shoot1


A few years ago, I had to come up with all the steps for organizing a fashion shoot for this blog. It was daunting because after conducting online research, I discovered that there were no blog posts or other guides around providing step-bey-step instructions.

So I did it myself and shared the steps in a blog post that has since been accessed thousands of times.

Since I realized there was an interest and market for this information, I encapulsated it all and put it in an ebook that is available for download at Kindle and soon the iTunes store and Google Books.

If you or someone you know such as an aspring model, fashion blogger, photographer, stylist or any other fashion industry -type is thinking of producing a shoot and has a limited budget, this is the eBook for him or her.

No where else can you find a concise step-by-step guide so it is very worth the $3.99 cost!

‘The Great Gasby’s Carey Mulligan Bumps It Up at 2015 Tony Awards

carey mulligan preggers (1)

In our Red Carpet coverage yesterday we totally missed the only preggers celeb at the Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 7: The Great Gasby actress Carey Mulligan.

We loved her understated, yet still classic and polished A-line oxblood colored Balenciaga gown that just streamed over her bump fluidly. The Brit beauty is reportedly about 20 weeks along, E! Online reports.

Mulligan is married to Mumford & Sons front man Marcus Mumford. This will be the first child for the couple who wed in April 2012 at a farm in Somerset, England before 100 guests including their famous friends Colin Firth, Sienna Miller and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Congrats.

 

How to pull off Spring/Summer Trends for Preginistas

spring summer trends

Spring and warmer weather give fashion-conscious trendy women the opportunity to sport the latest  Spring and Summer Fashion Trends!

If you are type of the girl who loves to keep up with the latest seasonal trends, but are also pregnant, I got bad news. Most of the trends this season are difficult to interpret into maternity unless you’re in your first trimester. There are seasons when I cannot stand any of the trending items but this year I’m really loving the opportunity to experiment with geometrics and 70s-inspired clothing.  For my pregnant ladies, I usually recommend incorporating the trends through accessories, scarves, and jewelry.

I gave it a try and selected a few pieces I think maybe could be incorporated with each trend, as assembled by WeWomen.com.  My picks could give you some ideas of how you can pull them off. Enjoy! and Good Luck, preginistas!

Get Inspired by Beyonce’s Bold Statement Jewelry

bey bracelets

I love statement jewelry and my muse is our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Beyonce Knowles Carter.

Each outfit she wears is accented perfectly with just the right ring, bracelet, earcuff, bracelet, necklace or body jewelry to complete her look. I was most impressed with the exquisite unique pieces Blue Ivy‘s mom wore in the videos to her 2013 self-titled album.

bey rings
My fave was the Black Lynn Ban PVD Armor Ring that she wore as knuckle rings in the “Superpower” music video! They retail at $420 each so you’d be set back  over $3,000 to replicate the precise look on your hands. She also wore 16 of the designer’s  Pave Coil midi rings in the “Haunted” video. They are embedded with white diamonds and black diamonds which retail at about $3500 each   I think that vid helped bolster the midi ring craze that following Spring.

You can get a similar style for under $20 from Free People or Ily Couture. And you can find the bold statement rings she wore in the “Telephone” jewelry at mid price range from other jewelers.

Another coveted set of jewelry are the Edie Borgo wrist cuffs and ear cuffs Bey rocked in the “Jealous” video.

That was one of my fave tunes from that visual album. Can you tell I recently discovered that the videos were released to the public last November? This past weekend, I relived my enjoyment watching  them all again on a larger screen. I  first purchased the album back when it first came out and had to view the videos on my iPhone.

The other great thing I discovered was that the Edie Borgo pieces from that video all are in a mid-range price point under $150 so they’re totally affordable!

And when Bey‘s not killing the game in her edgier looks, Mrs. Carter steals the spotlight in her bright and vibrant pieces, like these colorful Aztec art necklaces paired with that fab Mayan-inspired ring in that photo on the right.

I was totally crushing on those eye-catching accessories and adornments.

Revisiting that album last weekend also reminded me of how much I really dug the complete layered jewels look in the “XO” video too. I curated and assembed some inspiration pieces from our partners at ShopStyle for you to consider getting or using as a guide for the next time you’re out jewelry shopping.

If you want to nab some of  these glam pieces of jewelry, you can be creative and check out arts and music festivals this Summer.  Those events that have vendors who are at-home jewelry makers. They typically sell interesting and one-of-a-kind selections, and usually you can find big bold selections as well.

Happy shopping fellow jewelry lovers!

Fashion Confession: I’m a fan girl of Arm Candy

Girly Photo Collection
The right accessories can really help accent and in some cases, make a look or outfit. Even if you are pregnant and sticking to black to hide your growing waistline, a wonderful conglomeration of jewelry at the wrist is a fab distraction.
Right now I’m coveting arm candy. It’s the sugar and calorie free reference to series of bracelets, bangles or watches worn together for maximum style and effect. Here are my faves I’ve seen in recent searches for inspiration and ideas.
