TSC Series: The Best Damn…SALE

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8 || 9 || 10

 

The best damn online sale of the century AKA Shopbop’s 25% off sale is here.

But really guys, is this real life?

I just can’t help it. I feel such a sense of euphoria when there’s a sale like this. It’s too good.

First off, the important shit: these boots look EXACTLY like the Stuart Weitzman’s but they’re a third of the price. I plan on pairing them with a turtleneck sweater dress.

Cute— right?

& lately I’ve been super into navy green. The color looks really amazing on all skin tones & it’s literally the perfect color for fall.

So ya, bring on the navy green.

I mean, this is going to kind of be a navy green themed fall/winter for me, so this purchase was a real no-brainer.

Plus did I mention it’s all 25% off.

Cha-ching, ba-ta-bing.

And act fast—! The sale ends tomorrow at midnight. I know, I know, bummer.

By the way, this isn’t a sponsored post— it’s just seriously one of the BEST DAMN SALES OF THE YEAR. Had to share.

Use code FAMILY25 at checkout.

For this post: I didn’t wear makeup ( I was running out the door like a psycho & didn’t have time ) and the dress is unavailable ( but I found a better one for you ).

MMMmmmkay, now that that’s out of the way, here we go:

Let’s discuss: the.best.damn.white.maxi.dress.

Muy importante to have a white, hottie dress that’s sizzling.

& this one’s it.

It’s very 2014 Marilyn Monroe-esque, right?!

It’s the kinda dress you secretly hopes blows in the wind all supermodel-ish when you wear it, you know?

This white dime also happens to be on sale ( $23 dollars?! )— such a steal!

Oh, & can you guys tell I like black & white? HA!

Happy hump day! x.

Shock Your Taste Buds With This Vanilla Frapp

It all started in line.

The line that wrapped around the block ( but not really ) at Starbucks this morning.

Three people in front of me order caramel .

Mmmkay…

And then to make matters worse a ten year-ish boy in back of me orders a strawberry CRAPPuccino.

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Usually I would whistle, advert my eyes elsewhere, & act like I heard nothing but today was different.

Different because…I just can’t.

To tell you the truth, I’m surprised Frappuccinos are even legal. They’re honestly filled with so many nasty-ass GMO’s/chemicals that I’m shocked they don’t use Frapps as car fuel…actually- false, I’m surprised they’re not used as rat poison.

Ok, so today I’m taking a stance against Frappuccinos.

After sweating & perspiring ( wouldn’t you if four people in line casually ordered a Frappuccino? ), I ran ( ran, ran ) to the local health food store & stocked up on TSC Frapp essentials:

The Skinny Confidential shares a Frappacino recipe.

1.} 1 packet of vanilla chia Vega plant based protein powder

2.} 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

3.} A couple shakes of pumpkin pie spice

4.} 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

5.} 1/2 banana

6.} 1 splash of organic vanilla extract

7.} 2 tablespoons of chia seeds ( FIBER!!! )

Directions: add a handful of ice & blend. Add a cute pixy straw to sex it up.

Phew!!!

Soooo glad to get that off my chest.

This drink is seriously amazing if you’re in a pinch & need something filling ( << the chia seeds x the 15 grams of protein really get the job done ).

And promise, you won’t miss Frappuccinos at all.

What’s your favorite blended drink? I’ll try to post a TSC version!

Happy Thursday,

xx L

P.S. add peppermint extract for a pop of mint! x.

Soooo yesterday I told you guys I had a little surprise-y poo & well, here it is:

…The Skinny Confidential: The App

…& it’s now available for download on iTunes, so now you can stay up to date with the latest posts and more!

Let’s get real: reading blogs on an iPhone is so annoying. Most likely the formatting is F-ed up & you’re zooming in, squinting your eyes  trying to read WTH is going on.

Sound familiar?

Anyway I wanted to bring you babes a super quick way to access the blog through a simple app. Basically all ya have to do is go to the App Store, type in ‘The Skinny Confidential’, & press the download button:

BAM!

Seems easy enough, right?

The app is basically a really freaking easy way to read the blog. Everything is laid out neat & tidy ( just how I like it, LOL ). Here’s an example:

You can bookmark your favorite posts & keep them all organized in one spot. I’m obsessed with the bookmark feature because typically I’m one of those bitches with six million tabs open on my poor, tiny laptop. The bookmark= life. I have a warm fuzzy feeling when everything is organized on my phone; hopefully you’ll get the same feeling with TSC’s bookmarking feature.

So, feedback!!! Because feedback is ALWAYS welcome from you guys. Do you like/hate? Truth be told I’m sort of nervous…YIKES!

Happy Tuesday ( how is it Tuesday? It feels like Thursday…ahhh! ), xx. Lauryn

Different, Rad Fitness Wear

The Skinny Confidential x Carbon38.

The Skinny Confidential x Carbon38.

I’m so over the basic workout wear!!

If you’re like me, you’re always wearing workout clothes…like, always ( anyone w/ me? ).

And the last thing I want to do is rock what every single person in the universe is wearing.

So when I discovered this get-up by Carbon 38, I was smitten.

But honestly what’s better than a MESH, black sports bra?? Seriously though.

When it comes to working out, I’m obsessed with off the shoulder tops. They’re effortlessly chic with a little sex kitten-esque vibe. Pretty much I’ve been searching for a sports bra that goes well with my off-the-shoulder tops.

AND THIS IS IT.

The Skinny Confidential x Carbon38.

The Skinny Confidential x Carbon38.

I’ve been rocking this dime 24/7.

For the record: I kinda wear it under everything because it gives any outfit an insane pop of coolness.

On this particular day I paired the top(s) with these purple striped mesh pants. This outfit was the perfect transition from coffee to fitness to work to dinner.

Obsessed!

Anyway…I’m ready to mix it up in general when it comes to workout wear. Anyone with me?

Happy Thursday, xx. L
