Bras & Boobs

The Skinny Confidential x Nordstrom bra selection.

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8

Since the theme of the week seems to be boobies ( I mean, Nippies & the ‘I LOVE BOOBIE socks’ sort of set the boob-ish tone, right? ), So on that note, I figured I’d share some hottie bralettes that I’m seriously lusting after.

Totally ended up buying this lacy, sex kitten Honeydew number from Nordstrom the other day…GUILTY! It was too cute ( if you follow TSC on Instagram, this is old news ).

But really, Nordstrom gets me every time…I’m such a sucker.

Anyway for every bra purchased online ( from the above collage’s participating brands ) Nordstrom will donate $2 to the Young Survival Coalition, a non-profit supporting young women with breast cancer. LOVE it.

So shop away! Shopping for a good cause is always fun : ). What’s your fav? xx

Last month I found out Urban Decay launched a makeup line for Nordstrom.

But before I share ANYTHING on TSC, I HAVE to try it out first.

So I did a little testy-test for a date two weekends ago…& YOU GUYS, it’s good.

Especially the contour kit.

I’m about contouring. A little contouring never hurt a flea.

And of course, a pop of red is always fun…

Anyway if you want to chisel those cheekbones & really pump up your assets, contouring works like a dream ( also known as Kim K’s best makeup tip ).

Debating on whether or not I should do a tutorial on this? Might be fun.

On this particular night, I was wearing this turtleneck dress ( turtlenecks > anything ) & these black pumps. Also, I definitely enjoyed a little champagne ( in the shower before I got ready? Party hardy. HA )…

But honestly, I stayed in with this look.

We had a date night at home with the BEST Brussels sprout salad EVER…going off on a tangent real quick because the Brussels sprout salad I get from the restaurant across the street is killer. I need to re-create it like, yesterday.

Here’s what I do for Michael when I’m in a pinch & dressed up with no freaking time ( SHHHHHH though!! ): grab two Brussels sprout salads ( the one I like has fresh Parm, basil, & lemon!!! ), a bottle of champagne ( pre-chilled ) from Ralph’s, & a thin-crusted pizza with EXTRA fresh basil & lemon ( from the same little restaurant across the street ).

Then I RUN MY ASS home, turn on sexy music, light candles, add the salad to a big bowl, put the pizza on a pizza plate, chill glasses, dim the lights, pour two glasses of Pellegrino, slice lemons, add a sprinkle of chili flakes on the salad/pizza, throw anything on the floor in the laundry room ( hide shit, it works! ), & ACT TOTALLY CASUAL when he walks in, fully like “hey babe, what’s up, oh this old set-up? PSST, just threw it together— no big deal” ( GEEZ, my God, the lengths we women must go to…we should get a damn trophy ).

& then I apply a little more lipstick & pretend to look effortless while he eats a slice of restaurant-bought AKA ‘homemade’ pizza ( #fakeituntilyoumakeit ):

So ultimately this new makeup look kinda kicked ass for my at-home date night…& so did the Brussels sprout salad.

Definitely recommend both.

Anyone else throw together a fake-ass quick date night? Gotta do a video on this too. Share your secrets below. I won’t tell.

MEOW!!!

This cocktail is real hot for fall.

I’m so into it right now because who doesn’t like to get their buzz on while drinking a serving of fruit?

HA!

Super simple: one shot vodka ( or three? ) ( << I like Tito’s because IT’S THE BEST EVER! ), a splash of real ( like, real, real…not ‘Simply Apple’ or any of that fake bullshit ), a splash of ginger beer or ginger ale, & top with sparkling water. I also added a little pinch of pumpkin pie spice because I wanted to get realllll festive over here.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS MARTINI SHAKER? I bought it at Target AKA Tarjay & just love it.

( Wolf or chihuahua? You decide. I feel like I have no idea ).

But cute, right?…so powerful & proud:

So this lil fizz is fun to make for Halloween parties…plus if you have kids you can tell them “it’s Mommy’s apple juice.”

& boy oh boy, is Mommy’s apple juice tasty.

But beware: don’t shake the ginger beer & sparkling water in the martini shaker…it will explode. This has happened to me about six million times. Just shake the vodka & apple juice together, pour over ice, & then splash the ginger beer or ale, and sparkling water. Garnish with an apple slice & some bomb-ass pumpkin pie spice AND BAM!!!

It’s just like a fall, apple picking, pumpkin hay ride your in mouth. Everything the season’s supposed to be & more…

Ok, do I need to convince you any more to try this deliciousness?

Maybe?

Ok, just watch this video I made with Chris Tran Media last week…cheers!

TSC Series: The Best Damn…Bowls

The Skinny Confidential talks portion control.

The Skinny Confidential talks portion control.

Currently: lounging in bed ( Michael’s in Miami…so comp in bed! Shhhh. ) at 1:00 AM eating raw coconut ice cream ( casual ) while Pixy snores & Mr. T.Boone Pickens sticks his long nose in my bowl.

But not just any ice cream bowl.

My magic, favorite, skinny $8 bowl.

Honestly if you guys have followed TSC for a while then YOU KNOW HOW FANATICAL I AM when it comes to these bowls.

I’m so committed that I bring them on vacation.

For reals though.

The Skinny Confidential talks portion control.

I’m not a measurer…or a weigher…with my food. A lot of fitness bloggers will tell you to measure.

…meh.

Personally, I’d rather stare at a fly on the wall for 372616183 hours straight then measure my food everyday, so basically anything that involves measurements, BYE.

So my bowls. They’re just so cute & perfectly pre-portioned. And by the way, no one is paying me to say this— I just like the damn bowls ( obviously? ).

I’ve used these Anthropologie miso soup sized bowls FOR YEARSSSSSS. Impressively, they haven’t faded yet.

Things I eat in these bowls: raw ice cream, flaxseed chips, oatmeal, cereal, raw almonds, fruit, salads, soups, tuna fish…& everything else in the world.

In my opinion, if you’re looking to lose a few LB’s then portion control is EVERYTHING. I always tell my friends ( ya, I’m that annoying-ass friend ) “don’t eat out of the bag of chips!!! You will eat way more than you think!! Get a freaking bowl.”

Not a bowl that fits a small country, mini bowls:

Ultimately I’m totally perplexed why anyone would have any other bowl available in the kitchen. Kidding. Sorta.

These cuties just make life so much easier & way prettier. Really everyone should own a set.

Ok, Boone has ice cream all over his nose ( he’s so nosey…in every way) & is proceeding to wipe it on my whitest of white duvet. G2G!! xx. Lauryn

Brrrrr!!! No More Hard Nips!!

The Skinny Confidential talks boobs.

The Skinny Confidential talks boobs.

Ok, let’s set the nipply scene, shall we?

So you’re wearing this super hot, sexy white dress with a pair of new pumps & bright red lipstick.

Only problem?

It’s backless…& it’s cold. Brrrrrrrrrr.

…you guessed it: hard nipples!

LIKE CALLING EVERY GIRL IN THE WORLD because I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there?

Whelp, have no fear Nippies are here.

This is me getting all Vanna White-y & demonstrating Nippies— obviously, in real life there’s no black bra ( not ready to post my fun bags all over the Internet quite yet ):

The Skinny Confidential talks boobs.

Considering I spend the better part of my life in Nippies, I’ve invested in LOTSA pairs because they really just kick ass.

Fully obsessed with them because the sticky little circles come in handy in many unfortunate situations: when it’s freezing cold ( no more hard nips, BB ), when you’re wearing a backless dress or shirt, &/or when you don’t feel like wearing a freaking bra but you most definitely don’t want your nips hanging out for every Tom, Dick, & Harry to gawk at. ( I mean…honestly though, do guys really not think we’re savvy enough to know when they’re literally STARING at the twins? Psst! ).

In any case, when it comes to my boobs, I go for perky ( so sue me? ). For some reason Nippies just make boobs look so damn…….good. They’re a dream like that.

The Skinny Confidential talks boobs.

Regardless if you’re a member of The Itty Bitty Titty Committee or look like Pam Anderson circa 1999 post-boob job, these work wonders. Small boobies AND big boobies, guys. Plus they’re reusable ( I’ve used mine like 50 times ).

Anyway obviously I’m really committed to Nippies now— I’ve been using them for the past three months & can’t LIVE without them ( << not sponsored, just realness ).

So guys, ya got any other hard nipple tricks? x

P.S. beware: Nippies are realllllll sticky. Sometimes it’s fun to stick them to the back of your boyfriend’s head ( …#truestory ). Or on his ass. When he’s not looking. And sometimes they accidentally get stuck to your white pump & you’re in public for a half an hour totally clueless…don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
