Date Night Get-Up

The Skinny Confidential talks skirts and shoes.

Lately I’ve been allllll about contrasting prints.

Think: leopard on stripes, palm prints on bright blues, or florals on gold. So it’s no surprise that I loved this sequin on stripes look for last week’s sushi date night.

I paired it with white heels ( weird, me in white shoes? lol ), oversized sunglasses, & a little light blue clutch.

The sequin skirt is from Mindy Mae Market ( p.s. they’re offering 20% off, for a week with the code skinny20 ) was a hit because it hangs to the perfect spot on the leg. Sometimes skirts will hit the wrong spot of the leg AKA an unflattering area ( which doesn’t do anyone any favors ). This skirt fell to my ankles & made me look taller/longer/leaner and paired with a high shoe, I felt like Gisele.

Well not really Gisele.

But you know, you get my drift. I just felt taller.

What I loved about the striped top is that it was a crop, but not a crop so when I tucked it into the skirt I didn’t get that muffin top look. Does that make sense? Basically there was no extra fabric.

Anyway, the date night…We went to Sugarfish in LA which seriously, honest to God has the best damn sushi ever. If you ever go, get the ‘Trust Me.’ The chef will just automatically send you out tuna, sashimi, edamames, & to-die-for rolls. The fish is fresh, the rice is warm ( like melt in your mouth kind of warm ), & the saki is delicious. We LOVE it. Totally craving it, every second of every day.

Ok, I’m off- happy Tuesday! Talk soon, Lauryn

Little Update!! Plus Workout Moves!!!

GUYYYYYSSSSS.

The Skinny Confidential Fitness/Nutrition Plan is ALMOST here! I”m so, so excited because I’ve been pouring myself into this project & I can’t wait to share!!

So today I’m doing a little teasie-poo. These are some of my favourite workouts from the plan for very specific reasons, which I’ll explain in a sec.

All of these workouts are focused on giving you an extra energy boost & stimulating circulation…because who doesn’t like ENERGY? If you’re anything like me, you need your energy like you need your air. These 3 workouts will boost & lift your mood, your energy, and your ass.

Winnnnnn.

Ok, so here are the reasons why I like each of these exercises:

Tricep Dips: yes they’re easy & simple BUTTTTTT I swear by them for the backs of my arms. True Story: I used to have bat wings. You know that stuff that flaps in the wind when you wave goodbye? Ya. Anyway, tricep dips tighten those wings RIGHT UP. Thank god. This is my go-to when I want a quick energy boost.

Side Lunges: again guys, I’m old fashioned. None of this hanging from the ceiling with a band kind of shit. Side unless are INSANE for the sides of your legs/butt. You know those inward curves we all want on our butt? Those are from side lunges. Obsessed with good, ole side lunges.

Front Lunges: I guess I’m a lunge fan in general? I don’t know, I just like what lunging does to my legs I guess. I notice that they give me muscles in all the right places without looking too bulky. Lunges are a great, quick way to tighten up & give you a quick kick in the ass AKA energy boost.

Other ways to boost your energy? Walk the dog, dry brush (!!!!!), drink tea ( I’ve been OBSESSED with tea since I’ve been in Asia…especially peppermint ), ride a bike, take care of your skin ( I’ve been loving Garnier’s Miracle Lift because it tightens my skin & give it life ), read a positive book ( loving this one ), go for a lymphatic drainage massage ( more on this later ), or have a glass of champagne ( I kid, I kid ).

ARE YOU GUYS excited for more TSC workouts/stretches/food tips?? I hope so!! I promise it’s ALMOST here!!! More meets to come.

Also, I’ll be giving ten bloggers a full, free plan to test out for a blog review. If you’re interested, leave your name & blog below & I’ll randomly pick ten blogger babes :-).

love, Lauryn x

I’m realllllly about the floral maxi. It’s so flirty & sassy for summertime & I plan on wearing it with the snake cuff. Huge plus: the sides can hang off the shoulder so it falls down all sexy on your arm.

As for the pants: flares are back. They’re super flattering & slimming while giving off that 70’s vibe. LOVE.

Anyone else as obsessed with the Shopbop sale?! What’d you get?

Happy hump day, xx.

Strawberry Boozy Sweet Tea <3

I LOVE TEA.

& lately, for some reason…I’VE BEEN A REAL TEA DRINKER.

My champagne consumption has decreased lately ( needed a little break! ) so I’ve been loading up on the TEA ( basically the holidays have ended & alcohol hasn’t really been around too much ).

Anyway, I’m very, VERY specific about which teas I drink. So when I discovered Celestial Seasonings Strawberry Champagne tea, I nearly fainted.

BECAUSEEEEEE?

Well the reasons are endless: Valentine’s Day is next week…so UH DUH, the perfect tea for V-Day, right?! And it’s champagne (!!!) tea without the guilt. LOVE.

Lauryn Evarts of The Skinny Confidential talks tea.

Oh, & it’s delicious iced OR hot. YUMMM.

Seriously though, this Strawberry Champagne black tea is kinda like a full dessert without the cals.

But let’s get real here: you can’t give me Strawberry Champagne tea & expect me to never actually add the champagne. Since I needed to ‘test’ recipes for Valentine’s Day, I made this quick, easy sweet tea recipe.

Presenting:
♡ The Skinny Confidential’s Pink Sweet Tea ♡

1 strawberry/champagne tea bag
1 cup champagne
1/2 cup strawberries, muddled
Lemon, squeezed
Ice

Directions: grab a glass & add ice and champagne. Add 1-2 tea bags to champagne. Let sit for five minutes. Muddle strawberries with lemon juice. Add to champagne ‘tea’. Remove tea bag. Garnish with lemon. Cheers!

By the way, if you’re looking for a Valentine’s tea, these teas also come in Red Velvet Rooibos ( YUMMM!! ) & Chocolate Carmel Herbal Tea ( << way to a man’s heart right here ) so add a little Bailey’s to either & thank me later. Plus, they come in super cute, festive containers that are adorable to use all year round ( or for birthdays/holidays/parties, not just V-Day ).

You can find these teas at your local Target ( I LOVVVVE Target, like really it’s the best store EVER ) but hurry – because they’re only available for a limited time!

What’s your favorite, flirty way to spice up V-Day?! Tell, tell.

Cheers! – Lauryn, xx

Definitely a full herb doctor story!! But that’s for tomorrow, so stay tuned.

First order of business: Michael’s apparently a Michelin star chef? Did you know? Me either?

Yes. He’s discovered in the last two weeks that he’s going to purchase every chef trinket on the planet AKA a lemon squeezer, manly oven mitts, & a copper pan set ) & learn to cook….I mean I’m not mad about it. First cookbook purchase of his life 2015:

And me?! Well I definitely have major witch doctor news but like I said, I’ll save that for tomorrow.

Other than that?

Today I tried SparkCycle & it was veryyyy therapeutic. Think SoulCycle but in San Diego. Basically they turn the lights off & play rad music while you spin your brains out. It was reallllll fun.

More interesting news: I’ve been drinking wayyyyyy too much Moroccan mint tea, watching The Hobbit 1/2, & working on a lot of video tutorials for you guys.

AND LASTLY!!! I’m planning to post ‘A Day in the Life Blogger Series’…BUT GET THIS???! It will actually be a REAL day in the life without bullshit foo-foo crap. Like, a real, real day. What actually goes on behind the scenes. You like? Thoughts?

Talk soon, Lauryn xx
