never let go of your summer glow

At last! I’ve finally found the best self tanning product out there. Yes, I use self tanning lotion..but hey, at least I’m not at the tanning bed!

One of my least favorite things about winter is the steady decline of my natural tan from being home in the summer. I usually just deal with it, and attempt one or two products that leave my sheets orange and make me look like an orange zebra after a sweaty workout. Not to mention, they usually smell bad!

The other day I purchased the new St. Tropez ‘In Shower’ Gradual Tan. So far, after using it for a few days, I’m hooked! It leaves a streak free, minimal odor, summer glow that builds with each use. It takes only three minutes out of your shower routine–how easy! I have always been a fan of the St. Tropez line, especially their original instant tan mousse. The ladies at Sephora said that the shower gel is great for a base tan, and the mousse is good to build on top for that instant tan you might need before an event.

I highly recommend this new product. I’m excited to see how it works out throughout the winter!¬†Although, the thought of winter itself does not sound exciting…especially with summer around the corner in beautiful Sydney!

from summer to… winter?

It’s hard to believe that I’ll be going back to cold, winter temperatures in a month–okay, two months, since Florida doesn’t really count! In an effort to cope with the fact that all of my bright, spring/summer clothes I’ve accumulated here will be put away until March, I’ve put together some of my favorite loungewear for the season.

Disclaimer: I am¬†not happy about leaving Australia at the start of summer…but I will admit I do love to be cozy by the fire with some hot chocolate, especially the homemade famous one from The Little Nell!

Wildfox and Free People have the best loungewear to stay cozy this season, which can be found on both Shopbop and Revolve. I also can’t go without my camp socks and slippers from J. Crew! I’ll be sending those items back home, and until then, I’ll savor every day in my bathing suit and summer dresses!
