Million Dollar Tan Review

Hey friends! If you follow me on instagram you know my new obsession… Million Dollar Tan. It is a Sunless tanner that is absolutely amazing. I have always been a fan of the tanning bed but I know its not good for you and totally bad for your skin. I started noticing my skin was getting wrinkles after each tan. So I sought after something that would make me tan and not orange. I started spray tanning at this amazing place but I have a pretty busy schedule and making appointments was getting tricky. My cousins wedding is in a couple weeks so I decided to take to Youtube to find the best sunless tanner out there. I watched what seemed like 100 videos and the common one that a lot of bloggers/youtubers were using was Million Dollar Tan.  I placed my order and eagerly awaited its arrival.

First let me say, I think I ordered it on a Monday and it came to be by Friday! That made me excited because I hate waiting a long time for things. (Haha, what can I say I'm not patient) Secondly, I ordered the cabana tan extreme because I do have a pretty medium skin completion and I like a dark tan. But if you don't like being too dark or have a lighter skin tone there are other options which is awesome. another thing that I really liked is whatever tanner you pick you can customize it.. If you use a thin coat you will have a bronzy look but then you can use the product in a thicker layer to make your tan more dark. 

I started off by doing my legs so I could see if I liked the color that it came out to, you don't have to do this but I just like to see for myself if I like the product or not. I put it on my legs at about 10 AM and let it settle for 6 hours. I then washed it off in the shower and loved it but noticed I could apply a thicker layer next time so it would be darker. I then applied to the rest of my body and waited another 6 hours to wash it off. Its all up to you and what you like. I really think that its worth the money and that you will fall in love much like I did! 
(I ordered the body and face lotion combo pack, shown here.)

Let me know if you guys try it and what you think!

PS. Make sure to wash your hands really well after applying with warm water and soap so you don't get tan hands. :)

Spring Essentials

Maxi Dress

These are just a couple of things I've been looking at for spring. You can wear all these with different things. I'm all about using your clothes from different seasons into spring and summer. You can pair your winter sweater with some cute shorts and sandals.

Tomorrow its supposed to snow where I live which is so depressing. Finally all the snow has melted so I hope its just a dusting and nothing crazy because I'm pretty much over the cold weather. I need a little heat and sunshine in my life because I feel like your energy level just immediately goes up when its sunny out! Maybe thats just me.. I hope you guys had a good weekend! I have a busy week ahead of me so I will post as much as I can!

My favorite time of year is finally among us! even though I would prefer it to be like 75 degrees this weather is much better than snow by far. I am really excited about this maxi dress because I purchased a similar one from the same shop on Etsy last year and I felt like I lived in it. Its a tshirt material so its super comfy and light weight. One item I suggest you should have in your closet is a military jacket of some sort. This one if from pac sun last year and its still in perfect condition! There is so many ways you can make a maxi dress look cute but today I decided to pair it with this jacket and leopard flats. I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

This is something I would wear on my day off. Its cute and casual and took no effort to put together. These leather leggings I got from forever 21 maybe 3 years ago and I've been obsessed ever since. Whenever I want to wear something causal but look a little more fancy, I throw these bad boys on and its completely different then if I was just to wear some cotton leggings. Its been really sunny out lately but still chilly so I seem to be pairing this jacket with so much. I hope you have a beautiful day!

Spring Maxi Dress

This dress is so comfortable and perfect for the spring. And you know me I love a good deal and this dress was a steal! Maxi dresses can be your best friend or for some body types your worst enemy. I think its just important to find the right dress for your body type. I will list below some alternatives to this dress for different body types. If you were blessed in the breast department then a strapless dress is probably not best for you, one with straps might be more appropriate. I hope you are enjoying your monday. I was in desperate need for a day off so today is all about relaxing for me! Thanks for reading loves.

Stuck Inside

Today it snowed again and I got stuck inside so I'm sorry for the quality of the pictures. I'm absolutely loving this shirt though, its so comfortable and was only $25 at H&M. What is better than that? I honestly feel that if you wear a shirt like this and throw on a pair of jeans and some cute booties, its perfect to look like you tried. Most days I am rushing around to get dressed so this is definitely a go to outfit combination when I don't know what to wear! I hope you're enjoying your thursday and excited that its almost the weekend…I know I am!

Lately on Instagram

 When I post my #ootd on instagram some times its not on my blog, so I wanted to make this post about where I purchased some of the items I wear on my instagram pictures. 

Just an FYI… I'm a normal person, I don't "dress up" everyday, unless I'm going to work. I work Tuesdays-Saturdays so on Sundays the only reason I dress up is because of church and right when I get home I'm in bed with pajamas and a cup of tea! If you see me on a Monday I'm most likely in leggings and an oversized shirt with sneakers. I'm running errands on my days off so my outfits usually reflect that.  Something I challenged myself to do was to never wear leggings, sweatpants or yoga pants out of my house unless I was going to the gym or for a walk of some sort. And guess what? It really helped! Try it, it will change how you dress your self on a daily basis and make you more aware of what you are wearing. Some people say to me, "I'm a stay at home mom, whats the point of getting dressed in a cute outfit if I'm just going to get it dirty or stained?" Well let me tell you that point… Every women can be fashionable, It doesn't matter your size, shape, color or occupation. You just have to find the right colors that flatter you and the right clothes for your body shape/career choice! If you ever have any questions feel free to leave me a comment or email me. I will always answer them and give you my best advice! Hope you have a beautiful day loves!

Seeing Green.

No not green like green with jealousy, green like grass and this army green jacket! I haven't seen the grass in what seems like months. I was so happy with how nice it was outside today. The sun was shining and I was loving it. Now on to the outfit, I picked up this jacket recently at Forever 21 and it is the perfect spring jacket. This dress I want in every color because its the most comfortable thing I've worn in a long time. This spring I'm going to be living in maxi dresses I think mostly because you can look so well put together in a maxi dress and they take no effort at all to look cute in! I hope you all are enjoying your tuesday and looking forward to spring as much as I am!
